Sixteen Questions

Unfortunately, many places in the World are isolated today. People are staying at home. Families have a great opportunity to spend time together, have fun, learn each other and discover a lot of things in their children that they cannot even imagine. My Daughter asked her children 16 questions and had interesting answers. But from three of them, the most interesting gave her youngest daughter.

Just for fun ask your kid these 16 questions.

My Granddaughter – age 10

1. If you won a million dollars what would you buy?
– Nothing. I would just give it to charity.

2. How long does it take to get to England?
– Probably a while. How far away is Europe from Canada? If you walk, it would take forever.

3. What do I always say to you?
– I love you – that’s what I remember most. Or you just yell at me – haha… (😳)

4. What job do you want to have when you grow up?
– It’s hard to choose but if I had to choose one today, it would either be a musician or a video game designer.

5. What is the capital of Canada?
– Ottawa, but in the Animal Crossing it’s Town Hall.

6. Where do babies come from?
– You. Well, from different moms.

7. At what age do you become an adult?
– 20

8. If you could change one rule your family has what would it be?
– To be allowed to whistle at home.

9. If you could be a super hero what super power would you have?
– To die and then come back to life.

10. What would you do to save the planet?
– Break everybody’s phones and electronics so that people would be more focused on each other and studying.

11. If you could be good at one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
– Coordination because you need it for almost everything (Vlada has developmental coordination disorder so this is a sensible wish!)

12. How much does it cost to buy a house?
– A lot. I have no idea – probably $1000.

13. Why do you think we should be nice to each other?
– Because it’s not cool to be cruel.

14. What does love mean to you?
– Sharing an umbrella under the rain ☔️

15. What are you scared of?
– I’m scared of being in a place where there’s no one to talk to and nothing to do, because then I’d be bored and sad.

16. What is most important?
-Love ❤️

Quidi Vidi Village

BoatMinutes from downtown St. John’s is Quidi Vidi Village. Quidi Vidi was known for once being a historic fishing village. The neighbourhood is named for both Quidi Vidi Lake (where the Royal St. John’s Regatta is held the first Wednesday in August, weather permitting) and Quidi Vidi Harbour – known locally as “The Gut”. Located in Quidi Vidi is the Quidi Vidi Battery Provincial Historic Site, which had significance as a battery during the War of 1812. The village is also home to Newfoundland’s largest microbrewery, the Quidi Vidi Brewing Company. It has many different types of plants and animals. There are numerous scenic places to visit.
With ten unique, active artisans working in their studios at the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation, there is always something new to discover. Buying fine craft is always a pleasure – but especially so when you can chat with its maker, get to know their process, and see all the hard work and unique processes that go into the crafting of their product.
It was our point of interest on Easter Monday. On sunny morning there were no any signs of weather trouble. However by the time of our coming the snowstorm appeared from nowhere. It was like a blizzard. But in 20 minutes it flew away with the wind as fast as came. After that we had lovely short trip around the Village.Family

Cape Spear

National Historic ParkCape Spear, located on the Avalon Peninsula near St. John’s, Newfoundland, is the easternmost point in Canada. Cape Spear is close to Blackhead, an amalgamated area of the City of St. John’s, about 1.86 miles (3 km) away.
It was still wintery on Easter Day there. However it was sunny and surprisingly quiet and made hiking and sightseeing pretty comfortable.

 


Where the Rainbow is living!

Rainbow ArcIt was windy, rainy and sunny day in St. John’s on Saturday, November 8. From the highest point of the city – Signal Hill, you could see where the rainbow was born. It was born in the neighborhood with colourful houses and absorbed their colors. 


St. John’s, Newfoundland

The BayThe Capital of Newfoundland and Labrador is St. John’s. It is located on the far East End of Canada. The place is beautifully situated on the Atlantic Ocean coast. City is colourful and pretty.
City has a biggest Memorial University in Maritime Provinces of Canada. About 20000 students from  Canada and other countries get education in different specialities.
The nature is beautiful and free of pollution because the industry in that part of Canada is not really huge. There are only few small local enterprises which are clean and safe for the environment.
This is nice place for tourism and refreshment.
