The fun thing about trivia, is to compete with yourself. See what you remember from all your years of reading, watching, learning. I love trivia...I know just enough about everything to get myself in trouble and to enjoy 1:1 conversation with just about anyone.

I bet a shiny new nickel that you know more about our night skies than I will ever learn, Z!

I noticed that when I was doing Jeopardy that I only count the ones I answer. If I don't know, I don't answer. So it doesn't count against me.

Jeopardy gives me a happy jolt when I have the answer and the contestants dont. It's good for the self confidence.

Actually, Princess, I do probably know a lot abut the night skies. i've been fascinated since Sputnik, and the Hubble pictures boggle my mind.

So, my friend: Look into the skies sometime tonight and know that I love you. Please Kiss Shrek for me. I'm glad you are happy.

Thank you for the thoughts! I love you, too and will take a look out tonight...I promise not to shoot any reindeer. Shrek has his nose buried in his new Kindle delivered today...he is excited. Shrek is kissed and encouraging me to return to the kitchen...he wants to know why we don't eat Tamales tonight!
