Sharing My World

I’ve decided to take part in Melanie’s  Share Your World prompt. For the very first time. Head over to her site for the particulars on #SYW, then browse around. She’s got a bunch of varied, fun posts.


The Questions:

Is copying and pasting images or information off the Internet plagiarism?   Do you credit those whose work you ‘borrow freely’ or do you think the idea is repugnant?   (Credit for this question goes to GC and Sue)

I admit to freely “borrowing” images and saving them or sharing them with my daughters. I didnt use images on my posts for a long time, but since I started doing it, I make the effort to give credit to the site at least. I try to provide name and link as often as I can. I also use Wiki Commons or the free picture sites.

I think as long as you give credit and provide a link it’s not really plagiarism. Plagiarism is stealing and claiming credit as one’s own.

Do you let sleeping dogs lie?

Metaphorically, yes I do. I let the dogs lie and the bears un-poked. I have scars to remind me that “discretion is the better part of valor”(which originated, in a different form, from The Bard)

In real life, Nope. If the sleeping dog is snoring, taking up too much room or stinkin’ up the place, he gets poked, nudged or reprimanded and told to vacate the environs.

What’s the strangest pet name (for adults) that you’ve ever heard someone called?

I used to think it was strange for married folks to call each other “Mother” and “Father” or variations. After having children and telling them to ask “Daddy” or questions or statements involving him, it became normal to address him as “Dad” or “Daddy” when the girls were around.

Older daughter is still called “Monkey” by me and younger daughter is “Pooh B” which is short for “Pooh Bear”.

Do you like to dance?   If yes, what’s your favorite and if no, why not?

Do I like to dance?!? All. The. Time. My form of dancing resembles Elaine from Seinfeld more than any correct, established, choreographed moves and often ends in injury but I gotta dance!💃
