Round 28

10 players this Round! Thanks, all, for joining in !

Name A Roller Coaster At Cedar Point In Ohio

For 10 points:
Top Thrill Dragster, Millenium Force, The Blue Streak, The Wildcat, Iron Dragon, Disaster Transport.

For 5 points:
Cedar Creek Mine Ride(2)

Two I couldn't accept. "MaxAir" is not really a coaster but it is a ride in the park. Something about spinning around and becoming gravity-free. Yuk. Doesn't sound like much fun to me ! I couldn't find "Camp Bus" listed anywhere.

Cedar Point is a grand time! If you can stand the smell of dead fish so nearby, that is. Lake Erie is not at all the "happiest" lake in the States.

More info? Check here:

www.cedarpoint.com

An Ingredient Of Moussaka

These all worked as there are many variations.

For 10 points:
Eggs, Parsley, Lamb, Garlic, Olive Oil.

For 5 points:
Eggplant/Aubergine(3) & Onions(2)

It's actually, originally, an Arabian dish. Mostly considered Greek now.

A Song Performed By Karen Carpenter

For 10 points:
Happy, Still Crazy After All These Years (that was a revelation!), At The End Of A Song, All Because Of You, Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Crafts, Sing A Song, Make Believe It's Your First Time, Top Of The World.

For 5 points:
Yesterday Once More(2)

One of the most pure and flattering voices I've ever listened to! Many others would be right as she sang a lot.

Something You Might Give Mom On 'Mother's Day'

Looks like Mom is getting a lot of flowers this year!

For 10 points:
Chocolates, A potted plant, Violets, A Yankee candle (whatever that is ), A Greeting card, Lilies Of The Valley [my favorite answer], A meal at a restaurant, A rose.

For 5 points:
A picture frame?(2) - one of which even records voices!

A Nielsen Top 10 Show For Week Yada-Yada (Cable Networks)

I am sorry about that link everyone! The site got updated, to my surprise. Luckily the list only changed once so I gave credit to both weeks.

For 10 points:
NFL Draft.

For 5 points:
Law & Order, Sponge Bob Squarepants, Fairly Odd Parents(all 3 each).

Everybody stayed away from the WWE one.

The Scores:

littlewoman2, ren33 & Santana2002 - all 45 points!

Julia103, Kuu & ozzz2002 - all 40 points!

cinnamOn & Mugaboo - both 35 points!

Shrivats - 30 points!

bracklaman - 25 points!

Excellent job to all and congratulations to our three top scorers. It's Ladies night !

Edited to correct scores. Even though they mostly end up the same.

True. The only reason I allowed both answers is because they were worded differently. Kinda like a potted plant is also a violet, etc. *Gats ducks* .

OK It was just that it was my ' be kind to Americans day and call it Eggplant instead of the more English English Aubergine!' I meant well!

Tut children! I have back up the old bag here, there is no difference between an eggplant and an aubergine, they are identical in every way. A bit like crisps (UK) and chips (US)

Let's argue then! Put on your mitts and leather tights. We'll have a fashionable round of it! . Can't imagine a better go than that! (And, hey!, didn't you win the Round? ).

Talking of different terms for the same item, in the UK we say Polyfilla which I understand is spackle in the US - I was reminded of this when looking at your signature line Ren, I guess for you it should be 'basecoat'.

You brought it back with sticky pedals. What exactly melted as your were driving it?

No problem. No insubordination to report at this time.
