I've read several versions of the following questions on various social media, but I don't recall ever blogging my answers to questions about my 'favorites'. So in the spirit of getting acquainted, I decided to list and answer the following 'favorites' questions. I alphabetized the questions. (Actually I used the alphabet for inspiration.) Feel free to copy and paste these questions into your own blog post and insert your own answers ...
Favorite automobile: Mazda (first car was a GLC, now own a Mazda 2)
Favorite bird: penguin
Favorite color: orange
Favorite dessert: cookies or ice cream
Favorite eastcoast city: NYC
Favorite fiction book: "I Was Amelia Earhardt" (I don't usually read fiction, but recently read and liked that book)
Favorite game: Go Fish with Hawaiian species (Do you have any Hummuhummunukunukuapua'a?)
Favorite holiday: Wedding Anniversary which we celebrate in Maui.
Favorite ice cream flavor; Green Tea or Chocolate (I can only eat one brand which contains none of my allergens. Those are my 2 favorites of the 4 flavors I can eat. However, I can make in my blender and icecream maker many allergy free flavors, but that's more work.)

Favorite knick knacks: My deceased aunt's colored glass pitchers.
Favorite lyric from a song: "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."

Favorite nonfiction book: "Waiting to Fly: My Escapades with the Penguins of Antarctica" by Ron Naveen
Favorite ocean beach: Kamaole Beach 2 in Kihei, Maui, HI is nice for swimming, but I prefer the beach behind the Lahaina Shore Condo/Hotel also in Maui for just walking and beachcombing.

Favorite quotation: "(Y)ou'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious--the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse." (Phillippians 4:8 from "The Message" translation)
Favorite restaurant: Tropica at the Ka'anapali Westin, Maui, HI (The chef loves making allergy free entrees with fantastic sauces just for me. I love the special attention and tasty meals.)
