Holy Smokes
It's zee end!
We've almost made it.
Just one final 
set of questions.

How much do you know about these ends?

1. September 6, 1997 her funeral had an estimated 2.5 billion mourners, some at Westminster Abbey, the others viewing on tv screens. 

2. This young ruler's final resting place was uncovered in 1922 by Howard Carter...which of course unleashed the mummy's curse.

3. Resting in Arlington, Virginia this tomb is guarded by the US Army's Third Infantry Regiment.

4.  Located on this US island is The British Cemetery where the remains of four crew members from the HMS Bedfordshire rest.

5. It may be an urban legend, but rumor has it this famous celebrity and artistic genius was never buried, but is in a cryogenic chamber awaiting a cure for what ails him.

Bonus: This king of Macedonia's golden casket and jewel encrusted hearse was so heavy special roads had to be made to accommodate the sixty-four horses it took to pull it.  

Now...
I'm going to assume you rocked this,
so here's your boobie prize!

(That's my baby boy, Conner. and my nephew, Gabe-
totally cool being boobs!)
Enjoy :)

(1. Princess Dianna; 2. King Tut; 3. Tomb of the Unknowns; 4. Ocracoke, North Carolina; 5. Walt Disney; Bonus: Alexander the Great)

  2. I've always wondered if there's any truth behind that Walt Disney myth. Guess we'll have to break-in to find out ;)

    1. I know. Best I could tell, it's a myth. But it's become part of American lore, so I don't the rumor ever quiets.

  3. Only got #1 and 2. Like Jeff said the Walt Disney chamber rumour is news to me too. Thanks for a month of trivia and cool booby prize, those boys are enjoying themselves.

    1. I did. I think I got almost all of them up on time, which is amazing given my procrastination tendencies. My only fail is that I wanted to visit more blogs.

  7. I did not know that about Alexander the great. But Yeah, I totally knew that about Walt Disney. And, did you know that the Matter Horn Mountain in Disneyland has a half basket ball court in it? Yeah, turns out insurance on a Gym is cheaper than insurance on a mountain...

  11. I knew them all except for #4, so not too bad, eh? I'm going to miss these little trivia excursions...I'm not sure if you're on a blogging schedule, but I think you should do these once a week! :)

    You had a great theme, this month, and I've really enjoyed it...thanks!
