    Thanks for the trivia.

  22. Posted April 11, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    I was getting pretty sick because I was failing miserably. Of course I thought Ivory came from the teeth of elephants and I kind of thought that Bob Barker’s middle name had an “L” in it (does that count). This did challenge me at least. For the prehistoric study I was going to say Anthropology but that’s the study of man. Then I though Archeology, then Paleontology.(I sort of passed that one) but I failed. But hey, I knew the 5 Great Lakes!

  23. Posted August 26, 2010 at 11:38 am

    Lol I thought Bob Barker’s middle name was Price or Right. Got only three right this time. Your trivia are fun even though I can guess only a few correctly.(That’s my fault btw.) ^_^
