[quote=quicksilver;621021] Wow l.t. I suck. Must be out of practice because I haven't been drilled in a couple of days. Where you been?

Didn't know trivia
Should have known #1
#5, you gotta be kidding - there's such a classification?
# 8 yea! (one correct)
And of course I got the CRAP correct.

Thanks. I missed these the past couple of days.

I was on a roll (a very short one!), but only 50% today, and the T or C.

I wonder how much Henri Nestle paid for it.

Hey, Quicksilver...........

Sorry you missed them; I posted every day..................

sometimes I get bumped off page one pretty quick, but if you look for the daily, it's there every day, monday thru thursday, by 4:00 pm.

friday thru sunday, it's usually up by 9:00 am at the latest.
