Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

There is something there although I don't know which source to cite or works to list. Anyway, works from 1923 are now in the public domain. Try this article in The New York Times : https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/29/books/copyright-extension-literature-public-domain.html Or this one in Fortune : ht...

Sister Wendy Beckett, the Carmelite nun and the tv 'personality' who introduced me to art history, has died at 88.
Sister Wendy taught me to appreciate art and art history, and I am indebted to her. I just this week gave her DVD set to my daughter who asked for a "noetic" gift for Christmas.

The show, which aired from 1976 to 1983, was a spin-off from "Happy Days." "Laverne & Shirley" was the #1 show on TV for two seasons during its run. The chant of “Schlemiel...

Re: FJs for the 11/26/18 week

:D :shock: :? :D :D I was watching J! rather late at night and couldn't even come up with a viable option on the McDormand clue based on the date.

Re: Thursday, October 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

First of all, I responded "Baltimore oriole" on FJ because that's the official designation for the state bird of Maryland. That said, the clue could have been phrased better.
