Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought Sect. of State was obvious. I went hunting for the second. AG never occurred to me, although it probably would have if I had more time to think about it. Went with Education based on the current office holder. Similarly for me, State was an instaget and I struggled to find the second one. I...

Swanson is part of the Campbell Soup company. Only the broth part. Pinnacle owns the TV dinner part. We are both right. Campbell bought Swanson in 1955 and hence owned it for the Heyday of the TV dinner business. They spun Swanson off in 1998 and the new company took the name Pinnacle. I am also co...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ #2 I had Napoleon and King George III. I blame the Bugs Bunny where he "teaches" his nephew Clyde about American History for making me think George III was short. :D KGIII died in 1820. Don't know about Napoleon, but I think he came later. Nope. Battle of Waterloo in 1815 ended his career. I...

Did not know My Little Pony, Yeats, and the dollar clues. Made the same mistake as Lisa on Dylan Thomas. Lucky guess on Shostakovich. Did not need the rebound on Vukovar.

Re: It's a Hand! It's Michigan! category poll (1/3/20 spoilers)

I got Grand Rapids and Interlochen, feel like I should have gotten Saginaw. Jackson doesn't ring a bell. Interlochen was an instaget for me because they run an adult amateur chamber music camp each summer and I've been to it two or three times. Same answers and reactions to Saginaw and Jackson as m...

Clammed on the 3 music related clues, moose, Dearborn and Rowling (should have gotten the Rowling one). Got the rest, although the color was a guess and I missed a couple in that category.

I've heard of Hanford and know where it is and a general connection to nuclear stuff, but I had no idea it had any connection to the Manhattan Project. I might have thrown it out as a wild guess though, if asked for a Washington site.

Instaget FJ for me, but I did need the dialogue to assist. Given just the year, it would have been a guess between a couple of films.
