Who's Who - Shelley Dayton

1. Who I am: Shelley Dayton. Mystery writer. Curious, funny,
and a wee bit macabre.
2. What I like: Gentleness. Thick canopies of eucalyptus and
redwood trees. An abundance of spare time. Pickles.
3. What I Don't Like: Disharmony. Dishonesty. Ants, aphids,
and skunks.
4. Where is Home / or / Where I'd like to Call Home: Home is
where my family is! Here in sorta sunny California.
5. What is my passion, hobbies, occupation, etc.: There’s
nothing more relaxing than crocheting a simple baby blanket.
This has two benefits: one, it is very calming. Two, the
blankets can then be donated to Project Linus for needy or
ill children. Win-win!
6. If I could run a charity, it would be for: Destitute
children. Have you ever seen footage of children who have to
dig through dumps to find things to sell? Cutting their
feet, getting infections. It’s heartbreaking.
7. If I could change one thing about the world I live in, it
would be:
A complete end to lying and deception. Remember
Liar Liar with Jim Carey? Like that, across the world. There
would be total meltdown for a while, but we'd adjust.
8. For our blog readers, answer this if you can: What do you think will be the power source of the future?

  1. Hi Shelley,

    I loved the thought about fixing the problem with liars. And you're right, there would be total melt-down. *grin* But just think how much better we would all feel in the end.

  2. Thank you! Maybe I'm just jealous, because I've always been such a bad liar, I gave up!

  3. Whatever the power source, I hope it's cheap!

  4. There are so many options. I think algae is the most interesting, though! It can be grown in waste water and gives off more bio-fuel per acre than anything else.
