I haven’t done this in a while.
Today is January 26, 2009
– 1837 Michigan admitted as the 26th state
– 1961 Janet G. Travell is appointed to be the 1st female physician to the President of the US
– 1979 The Dukes of Hazard premiers
– 1998 “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky” President Clinton
Did any of you look up Illyria? Well this “country” existed back around 400 BC and comprised most of the western Balkan Peninsula. In today’s terms Illyria makes up 8-9 different countries.
Last weeks county was Albania which would have been at the southern tip of Illyria.
This week I think is pretty easy so I’ll only give it a 4 out of 10 rating.
This week’s is a bit harder, on my 1-10 scale it is a 9.
THANK YOU – gopfolk
Sorry about that so here is the week in review:
Monday, December 8, 2008
A big thank you to all of you that contributed to the Arthritis Foundation, because of you I was able to raise $475!!! Now I know that it was short of my goal but in tough times you just have to face facts!
The Las Vegas Marathon was a perfect race for me the weather was great for running (50 degrees and overcast) and due to the training I was able to put together a new personal record…even after completing 4 other marathons this year!! My time was 4:45:05.
Racine County received $3,877,000 in USDA subsidies in 2006.
Name that Place
Last week was pretty easy with those nice big blue roofs and CU got it right they are Culvers!
Name this Place:
Woodward announces for Caledonia Village Trustee, vows to run aggressive campaign to earn seat
I know that the Obama camp (set up behind the fictitious “office of the President Elect”) is saying that Obama is clean but a shooting star in the Democrat party, out of Chicago, with ties to the Governor, an unrepentant domestic terrorist, and a felon (can you say Rezko?) can not be as clean as he has stated.
Think about it…the guy that will soon be president has gone to a church and has been baptized, married, and had his children baptized by a pastor that says “God da** America!” but then claims that “that isn’t the pastor I knew.”
How long before the ties between the Chicago machine and Obama really come to light?
Interesting…New Scientist: Hot landslides may have set off mystery wildfires
Democrats don’t do that!
What is going on here?
Have I lost my mind?
Yeah…Obama isn’t part of the Chicago machine…and I’m an Olympic Sprinter.
“In 2007, Toyota sold 9.37 milion cars world wide.
They MADE 17.7 BILLION dollars.
In 2007, GM sold 9.37 million cars world wide.
They LOST 38.7 BILLION dollars.
We’re talking bailout WHY?”
Name that Country:
I need to give credit once again to CU for hitting this one out of the park! I just want to know how CU figured it out?!?!
The country was Luxemburg!
On my 1-10 scale this week’s country is only a 3.
Clinton for Sec. of State
Holder as Attorney General
Richardson as Commerce Sec.
Orszag as Teasury Sec. (although I like this one!)
Same old names not a lot of “change” here.
UAW not willing to work a deal…no bailout.
I do have a big question though…shouldn’t the auto execs have done this years ago? You know what I mean…say NO to the UAW?!?
Oh no! You guys aren’t going to get away without trying to get this country!!!
9 out of 10…
THANK YOU – gopfolk
This week is only 4 out of 10.
Well I’m back and I’m ready to go…Last week our friend over at the DailyScoff.com posted on my wordpress blog instead of blogger (yes I’m considering the move and will probably make the jump by years end so pay attention!!)
His guess was “How’s it hanging?”
The country was Chad.
This week you are getting 2 for the price of 1.
I would rate both 8 out of 10.
Yes, Yes, Yes…I know that this is a Thursday thing! I’ve been a bit busy and forgot to schedule this to run at the regular time…so here it is today.
Once again a big thank you to j. gravelle for this clue:
Bela Lugosi has rouge on his cheeks – Bela rouge…close enough!! Belarus is what it is more commonly called!
Good luck…4 out of 10
