It’s time — actually, it’s a little past time — for a new round of questions. Scotty really wanted to go to the dog park today, so he hopes you’ll understand that this week’s set of questions are being posted a bit later in the day than normal!

Thanks for playing!

Be sure to check back this week and click on the links of bloggers who play along in the comments below! It’s a great way to find blogs you may not have visited and keep the conversation going!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Enjoy!

1. What canned vegetable do you have the most of in your pantry?

2. What flavor of salad dressing do you have the most of in your refrigerator?

3. Do you prefer butter, margarine or a butter substitute?

4. Which kind of cooking oil do you use the most?

5. Take the test: Do You Eat Like a Liberal or a Conservative?

6. Not counting water, how many different kinds of drinks are there in your refrigerator?

If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), send me an email! I’d love to include it in a future edition of the Saturday Six.

  • Trying to reply to AislíngeKelloggdeGómez. but Lifefyre won’t let me. Also, still doesn’t work for me.

    My reply: Perhaps it has something to do with frequency? But yeah, seems weird.

    • @psalm23 I think, too, that it has to do with number of comments over time, but I”m not sure at all. All I know is that the more comments I make, the more points I get.

      • @psalm23 Oh, and sometimes I am unable to reply to another comment, too. I think it’s a Lifefyre bug but it doesnt’ seem consistent.

        • @eeyore17026 (aka Strange)@psalm23 In Aislínge’s case, it is the diacritical marks in her name that is confusing Livefyre. I’ve reported it, and they DO know about it, so it is on their list of things to fix.

          In the meantime, if a reply won’t post, delete the reference of the username you’re replying to at the top of the comment and try reposting. That will almost certainly make it work.

          As for the thing, I think you hit enter TWICE to force a carriage return. That’s what I’m doing on this comment every time I’m trying to leave a blank line between paragraphs.

          Like this. 🙂

        • @patricksplace@eeyore17026 (aka Strange)@psalm23 We’ll have that fixed soon, friends! We appreciate your patience and we’ll make sure you’re well aware when we do so!

    • At some point, you will have to tell me how this point thing works. Diana CT answered this Saturday Six before I did – by 13 hours – and I wonder how it is she received 7 points and I received 17 points. That doesn’t seem very fair…!

      • Hey, Aislínge…the point system is really a rating system within Livefyre. I’m almost certain that it is influenced by the number of “likes” your comments receive on various posts. It isn’t, as far as I know, different from post to post, but rather a cumulative rating. That means that you should have the same number of points from one post to another until your overall rating goes up from more “likes.”

        It doesn’t indicate who posted first or how quickly someone responded to any particular post.

        • @patricksplace The points, at the moment, are just a tally of the total number of likes you’ve received to date. But, we’ve got some VERY cool things in store for this in regards to reputation management/community reputation that we think you’ll like a lot 🙂 I’m pumped about and you’ll know when we roll that out!

        • @patricksplace@JMattHicks@psalm23 Oh, I see. That sounds kinda cool. Too bad Blogger doesn’t let me use Livefyre. It certainly has it’s advantages!

          I did not realise that the diacritical marks in my name were creating so many issues. Although that is fairly standard. Kudos to you for knowing the term “diacritical marks” – when I use that phrase, no one knows what I mean! English – it is a beautiful language and you know it.

          Thanks to all for the responses and helpful input.

        • @patricksplace@psalm23 You’re very welcome Aislinger! If you ever have any questions/need anything, feel free to shout at us on Twitter ( livefyre ), we’ll make sure you’re well taken care of 🙂

        • @JMattHicks@patricksplace@psalm23livefyre

          How about Facebook? I can’t say much on Twitter – there is nothing to say in 140 characters for me. If you are on Facebook, I may take you up on that! I’d love it. Like I said, this would be great if I could have it on Blogger, but for reasons passing understanding, it is not available. Thanks!

    • @eeyore17026 (aka Strange) Okay, here are my answers on this one:

      1. Black-eyed peas. (Yeah, I’m a Southerner!)

      2. Fat-free Ranch

      3. Butter Substitute: specifically Brummel & Brown because a dietician recommended it as a good option.

      4. I do have a small bit of vegetable shortening, but when I’m cooking and need oil, I use either olive oil or canola.

      5. You eat like a conservative. You may or may not be a political conservative, but studies show you sure eat like one. You gravitate toward comfort foods and classics. And you don’t waste your time with fancy food trends. You prefer to eat what’s tried and true. You get annoyed with people who have hangups about what’s healthy. Pass the mac and cheese, meatloaf, fried chicken, and apple pie. Your tastes are all-American as they come!

      6. Two: Milk and Diet Soda. Between me and my crazy Collie, we drink a LOT of milk. But it’s good for our bones! 🙂 And yes, it’s 2% milk. I try not to buy whole…watching the cholesterol, of course.

      • @patricksplace I believe I have some black-eyed peas too (canned AND dried), and I’m NOT a southerner! lol Is that B&B stuff any good? I think I’m gonna be getting the word soon that I need to buckle down and eliminate some things.Your dog drinks milk? I didn’t think dogs were allowed milk. Then again, I haven’t had a dog around for 8 years now. {{sniffle}}The double space thing seems to be helped if I hit Enter + either Shift or Ctrl.

        • I’ve never had a dog that DIDN’T love milk. Or Ice Cream. Or cheese. Scotty gets a slice of cheese every day…he will come and bark at me for it if I don’t remember to give it to him. And every time I go for a little milk in the coffee, he walks into the kitchen and sits for a little bit of milk in his bowl!

          The B&B is actually good…I can’t really tell a difference between it and margarine, but this stuff is yogurt-based, and it’s supposed to be healthier for you than some of those other butter substitutes that look like some sort of bizarre puff paint once it’s applied to food.
