Well, here we go. I guess I got the days all wrong. I'll put Saturday's list up now. We have until Monday to answer. (Oh, wait! I really didn't get the days wrong. But I'll post my list anyway.)

1. On that dreadful 9-11-2001 one plane didn't crash into a building. It went down in a field in Pennsylvania. It was Flight 93. 40 people perished but there were only 8 crew members (and stewards/stewardesses count) that died. Name one of the crew members.

2. Name a country that has given us the pageant winner Miss Universe since 1995!

3. Give me a name of a Yukio Mishima novel. (No names of a short story or Japanese title or non-fiction, please----just English translations).
4.


Gats jumps the gun again. But we have until Monday.

My computer is not being agreeable today. I shall try again with this next round: (And don't rush me. I know what day is what!)

1. Name one of the "Chicago 7" who made a disruption out of the 1968 Democratic Convention. (There were actually 8 who went on trial). Name one.

2. On 9/11/2001 a plane went down. It didn't crash into anything; it went down into a field in Pennsylvania. 40 people died but who were the crew members who went down with the ship? It was called Flight 93, by the way. The steward staff counts, by the way, too.

3. Name a country that has won a Miss Universe Pageant since 1995.

4. A little more Americana. Name a state holiday in Oklahoma USA. Not a national one----and not a week. Just a day!

5. Give us a novel by Yukio Mishima. Not a Japanese title, but an English one. At least as it is written or interpretted. No short stories or non-fiction, thanks.

There ya go! See you Monday (I think).

You've got me confused now, Gatsby! You were supposed to be doing Friday's round and I'm supposed to be doing Saturday's, right? So I'll have to post my questions now as well, otherwise we'll be missing a round. I hope that's okay! I'm happy to give people a bit of extra time to send in their answers, since two rounds will have been posted so close together.

All week I thought I had Saturday's! Ooops. Sorry about the confusion. I guess I should pay more attention to the roster. So I'll close Round 30 on Sunday. Apologies if I got things out of order! Well, there's no "if" about it! I assuredly got my days mixed up .

For 5 points

Miss India (3) and Miss Australia (2)

Yikes. I should hang up my hat . In Round 30, 2 people mentioned Mishima's "The Decay Of The Angel" so didn't get 10 points on it. But, thankfully, the round winner was not affected by my error.
