What is your favorite cheese?
I have been living in Switzerland for the past 50 years but if it is one thing I have not forgotten from my British days, it is Cheddar Cheese. The Swiss can keep their Emmental and Gruyère, there is nothing better than a piece of Cheddar cheese. When I arrived in Switzerland there was perhaps one special shop in Zürich where you could buy it. Today its fame has spread, and even our supermarket sells it. Melted on toast it is a delicacy and in a cheese sauce with cauliflower, unique. Did I mention, cheddar cheese is my favourite.
Are you left or right handed?
Defnitely right handed, although today I can be glad when I can use either hand. With age some fingers get thicker than others, no longer have the feeling or mobility they used to have, but they still work.
I would like to add here the strange thing is that my oldest son is left handed, probably because of his autism, and my youngest son is completely ambidextrous, although he writes with the left hand. When he was a kid he would draw. For objects on the right side of the paper he used his right hand to colour, and for objects on the left side, his left hand.
Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
I exercise my mind daily with my computer and running the household, although I am glad for Mr.Swiss and his assistance. My smartphone helps me on the way, as it reminds me of what I should not forget. As far as the body in concerned it now refuses to be exercised, but I am definitely the speediest in stick walking.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week I visited our Saturday morning market in our local town of Solothurn. It is for food mainly. I loved it as it must be at least a year since I last had the time to go. Mr. Swiss and I had lunch in an Italian restaurant afterwards. It was a great morning for us both.
I do not really look forward to stuff, as it is more spontaneous decisions that we make. If we have the time and the interest, we decide and do it. Sometimes you feel too tired to do what you would like to do. It just depends on the mood.
