That movie also has the kids from Mary Poppins.
Yes! If I recall correctly, you can see them in "The Three Lives of Thomasina" too. (RIP my VHS of that one.)
Yep. Karen Dotrice's role is bigger in it than that of the other kid whose name I can't remember, though. [edit: Matthew Garber]

In the month of April I doubt I will see anything funnier than the WrestleMania match between Sami Zayn and Johnny Knoxville. Bob Saget must be looking down (or up) and be very happy.

Have a great day. Jill Scott is also 50 today. What would she be?

When Jeopardy! increased the prize money in 2001 the third place prize of $1,000 could purchase many tacos. Neglecting taxes, a third place contestant in 2001 could have bought and eaten 1,449 crunchy tacos at Taco Bell, which were $0.69 each.

Now, the third place contestant cannot purchase as many tacos. A third place contestant in 2022 can only buy and eat 840 tacos, at the new price of $1.19 each. This is fewer tacos.

I think the prize money should be increased so that all contestants that appear on Jeopardy! are able to purchase and eat at least 1,000 tacos.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

Apparently one of our board members paid some money to have a star named after him!

I always knew I was a star! Now if only the J! people would see my star quality and put me behind one of the podia (podii?). :mrgreen:

Indulge me here, please. I thought it notable that both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times crossword puzzles, this past Sunday, included a particular 5-letter entry, which they clued the following ways: "Less common navel variety" and "Body feature that approximately 10 percent of people have"

, but not so notable that I should sign up at a crossword forum and possibly wait for approval, by which time my excitement would likely have worn off.
I'm smart and I want respect.

What's the lead time on crossword puzzles? That five-letter term -- along with its opposite -- is frequently used in the Apple TV+ series "Severance," which released its first two episodes on February 18. (On the show, it doesn't refer to navels.)

I got it from "worn on the head at nighttime". The second part of the clue quickly escaped me.

After taking the test for the first time in 1995 and recording games for studying purposes I would at first ignore reviewing those kind of clues I got right. As I went along in the process I started looking at secondary parts of clues that would be helpful to recall. I do understand how it went for you back then and then this week.

I mean, I do pay attention to secondary parts of clues relating to topics that interest me, such as the history clues and the geography clues. But not clues like that one that aren't really quiz related.

The Chuck Lorre vanity card that aired after tonight's Young Sheldon made me smile and seems like a good one to share here.

I get the L.A. Times delivered every day. I'm the only person in my 40-unit apartment building who gets a physical newspaper, and that's been the case for almost the entire 17 years I've lived here. (For about a year, one of my neighbors got the L.A. Times on Sundays only.)
