my wife tells me i should go on jeapordy because there's nights that i nail every one.

knowing my luck, it would be a special night where all of the categories were about literature.

i got 1 thru three, and missed the next three. not even a guess.

and lobster thermidor is the only fancy dish name that i know using lobster, so that was easy in a way. i never knew "thermidor" was based on the french republican calendar.

i learned something already today. thanks lt.


can i go back to sleep now?

My wife tells me the same thing, BT;
but i know in my heart that once there, in front of the lights, I would freeze up like a nude in a blizzard...............and make a total fool of myself!


From Wikepedia;

The Republican calendar year began at the autumn equinox and had twelve months of 30 days each, which were given new names based on nature:

Winter:
Nivôse (from Latin nivosus, "snow") Starting Dec 21, 22 or 23
Pluviôse (from Latin pluviosus, "rain") Starting Jan 20, 21 or 22
Ventôse (from Latin ventosus, "wind") Starting Feb 19, 20 or 21
Spring:
Germinal (from Latin germen, "germination") Starting Mar 20 or 21
Floréal (from Latin flos, "flowering") Starting Apr 20 or 21
Prairial (from French prairie, "pasture") Starting May 20 or 21
Summer:
Messidor (from Latin messis, "harvest") Starting Jun 19 or 20
