Endeavor, basically chosen at random from the five space shuttles I could name. I forgot about Atlantis, which I probably would have guessed otherwise.

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had no idea who it was, and while I knew somewhere in the back of my mind that he was Attorney General, I said State as soon as Alex said who he was. (No idea if I'd have dredged it up on my own if I recognized him in the picture.) I had guessed Treasury to have something.

Rolling Stones; as soon as the music ended I realized it was the Beatles and immediately came up with the two songs, but by then it was too late.
I have not seen The Bodyguard, film or play.

No guess on Tuesday.

Switzerland, minotaur (winning the doomed coin flip over sphinx).

No preemptions here; the show airs when CBS hands things over to local stations for news, etc. in the afternoon here.

I went back and forth between the contestants' two answers, not happy with either but unable to come up with anything else. I eventually settled on minotaur.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

From video: Started off rough, with me being certain on only 2 of the first 7 (plus guessing liver and "I have no clue if it's not Marie Antoinette" both working out), but after that I did better, and after #22 the only one I missed was losing the Gershwin coinflip at #40 for a total of 42 correct.

Daimyo; of the three I considered, samurai was the one I thought was least likely.
Have never seen The Beverly Hillbillies, but I think I have an MP3 of the theme song.

Sometimes it helps to remember the category: ENTERTAINE”D”. I did not know it, but figured out which team to guess since I always start recalling teams with the NL West. I thought of the Diamondbacks but clammed, because why would the Diamondbacks have a bobcat mascot? (A quick visit to Google reve...

"Mardi Gras" is not a good answer for some other phrase in French. :oops: Hey, you were only one day off. No guess on FJ! I considered Daedalus, Icarus, and Pegasus, but couldn't connect any of them with a character and the idea of picking a mythological name and hoping for the best didn't occur to...

I'm not sure if I've received anything from PCH. I usually don't look at junk mail.
Also not sure if I've read a full Longstocking book. I might have for school.
