The Encyclopedia,

Social Media, 

& Me!!



It's challenge day twenty! Can I manage to post twenty-six times in April? Can YOU answer the questions I ripped  gathered from my handy dandy, old-school, flip through paper pages encyclopedia?

Get them all (or a few) right and you could win the boobie prize!

*I've been a lazy blogger...I blame the cold my family shared with me. That and double birthdays for my boys. My oldest just turned nineteen and my youngest thirteen. Can anyone explain how that happened?! 

No? Well, then on to the trivia...


Travel Time...Back to the Twentieth Century!!


It hasn't been that many years ago...but do you remember?

1. First men to take flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

2. The world was launched into a global conflict with the assassination of this man.

3. In August 1936 this sporting event was one of the first live television broadcasts.

4. On July 21, 1969 this American made one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.

5. The 80's saw the rise in computers, but they didn't become "personal" until this man developed a user friendly operating system.

Bonus: This Scottish researcher didn't find the cure for cancer, but he did make it possible for us to survive bacteria.

(1. Wilbur and Orville wright; 2. Archduke Franz Ferdinand; 3. the Berlin Olympics; 4. Neil Armstrong & the moon landing; 5. Bill Gates; Bonus: Sir Alexander Fleming)

    1. #2 was a tough one...a little vague in the wording. I'll take the bad on that.

  2. Two but I thought it would be zero again. Would have been three if I had remembered the name of the Archduke.
