Round 26 ~ Tuesday

Hello again . I'm filling in for Miss Denni19 today (a computer glitch, I'm told). She'll be back soon.

No theme, really, today. Just a string of current events strung together with commas and a few emoticons ...

1. The weekend past was all abuzz with some of my favorite "stuff" that happens in a year. Sunday evening was Oscar Night and the internet was hot with Academy Awards tidbits and predictions and movie history and who was going to wear what (an area, I assure you, I couldn't possibly care less about ~ to be honest I wouldn't know a Vera Wang from a Vinnie Barbarino ). Anyway, I learned this on IMDb Saturday. "William Wyler holds the record for directing the most performers to Academy Award nominations -- 35 in all; 13 of those performers went on to win!" All righty, then. Please tell me one of those 13 winners (actors/actresses - lead or supporting) that Mr. Wyler directed to an Academy Award. Note: One actor won twice in Wyler films - so if you pick him, specify which movie you mean, eh?

2. More "hot" news in America is this aren't-we-slightly-tired-of-it-already Presidential race. It'll finalize in November 2008, but I suspect its been media-worthy since November 2006 , or so it feels like occasionally. I live in Ohio - a pivotal state what with next week's primary. Let's just say Mrs. Clinton is really really hoping my little state loves her endlessly on March 4th. Win or lose, though, while everybody's here they could all visit, given a non-political moment or three, The Central Ohio Home & Garden Show - which is running from February 23-March 2 in Columbus. The last day of that Garden Show is this coming Sunday (meaning the candidates won't be mean and hateful to each other, visibly, until probably Monday). I'd like to know an event they might civilly enjoy at The Central Ohio Home & Garden Show on Sunday, March 2.

3. Other (slightly) big "media horns and whistles" in the States is the new season of the talent search/variety vote-fest "American Idol". Quite fun, really - we can nervously twitch at the prospect of a new version of (dreadful) Sanjaya Malakar or sit and wait in sweaty earnest for the brilliant fireworks of a Chris Daughtry. Some impress, others don't . Over on AOL, there was a page devoted to a site called "votefortheworst.com". They compiled a list of the 10 Biggest Post-'American Idol' Failures. Name one of those ten "flops" on that list, OK? My apologies to those across the pond who don't get to see our version and won't know who these people are (but, perhaps, count your blessings that you missed 'em on stage in these cases...)

4. Certainly NOT just American news, this. Worldly important, in many ways large and/or small. Cuba's leader, Fidel Castro, is stepping down after app. 50 years of tempestuous control over the island country. Historically, he is of massive importance but the question will always linger: just how evil (or not) was he during the course of said importance? Don't expect a definitive answer any time soon, I'd recommend. But the Sunday magazine/supplement 'Parade' picked their 10 Worst Dictators (in January 2006, compiled by David Wallechinsky) and Mr. Castro was NOT named there. Might you tell me a dictator who DID make that not-so-honorable-to-be-on-it list today?

5. Today, February 26, is (I gather from dubious sources) 'For Pete's Sake Day'. I have no idea why. To be quite frank, I don't think there likely IS a good reason why. One would surmise that the most prevalent question swirling around regarding the matter might be: Why not? There is a restaurant/pub in Pennsylvania, however, that probably thinks this theme for a day is better-than-good. One would guess their establishment is quite busy today. Or tonight. Or both? Nice menu, too, I'm happy to report . To close, I'd like to inquire as to a brand of bottled beer they sell at For Pete's Sake Pub in Philadelphia that one would pay more than $4 (US currency) for, each time they ordered one.

Let's close this rascal up on Friday, I guess. I'll announce it 12 hours before it's done, OK? Be good. Be happy. Be careful. Have a fantastic rest-of-week .

Due to the sudden death of my PC's video card last Saturday, I had very limited computer access for the entire week and couldn't do a proper research in order to come up with my Tuesday round.

Thank you so much Gats for helping me out with it!

Round 29 - Friday

Seeing that 2008 is a leap year, and today is leap day I couldn’t resist, and thought I would dedicate this round to the word LEAP . According to the Gregorian calendar, there are rules which decide which years are leap years:
1.Every year divisible by 4 is a leap year. 2.But every year divisible by 100 is NOT a leap year. 3.Unless the year is also divisible by 400, then it is still a leap year. This means that year, 2100, 2200, 2300 and 2500 are NOT leap years, while year 2000 and 2400 are leap years. Therefore 2000 was kind of special, as it was the first time the third rule was used and applied.

1. In 2008 the 29th of February falls on a Friday, the month of February started on a Friday and it will end on a Friday , hence giving us five Fridays this month. Between 1904 and 2096, leap years with the same day of week for each date repeats every 28 years which means that the last time February had 5 Fridays was in 1980 and next time will be in 2036. Please give me a year that was leap since 1800 till 1910.

2. Leap Day Babies are those who are fortunate enough to have been born on the 29th of February and generally they are called Leapers. There are several websites dedicated exclusively to these leapers and their birthdays, but not only that, they have also come up with their own LEAPTIONARY, from this site could you kindly give me a word that you would find in the Leaptionary.

3. There are many famous Leap Day Babies, from this site please give me the name and year of a famous leaper that was born between 1960 and 1980.

4. In1921 the film Leap Year came out, with the main character played by Roscoe Arbuckle, a young man who is heir to his grouchy and millionaire uncle, Arbuckle's is involved in all kinds of romantic difficulties; without being able to work things out with the woman he really loves, all in all a quite enjoyable silent movie of the 20’s. Could you please tell me the name of an actor/actress who had a role in this movie.

5. LEAP also stands for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. The mission of LEAP is to reduce the multitude of unintended harmful consequences resulting from fighting the war on drugs and to lessen the incidence of death, disease, crime, and addiction by ultimately ending drug prohibition . LEAP is made up of current and former members of law enforcement who believe the existing drug policies have failed in their intended goals of addressing the problems, and they believe that a system of regulation rather than prohibition is a less harmful, more ethical and a more effective public policy. From their web site find the event calendar, please give me an event that will take place from the 6th of March till the 22nd of April.

Let's say that this leaping round will be open till Wednesday noon FT time , I will be leaping around if you have any questions, otherwise have a great weekend

Round 26 - Tuesday
"Miscellaneous News"
Seven fine participants ~ *Thank You !*

1. All righty, then. Please tell me one of those 13 winners (actors/actresses - lead or supporting) that Mr. Wyler directed to an Academy Award.

For 10 Points:
Teresa Wright ("Mrs. Miniver", 1942), Fredric March and Harold Russell ("The Best Years of Our Lives", 1946)
For 5 Points:
Audrey Hepburn ("Roman Holiday", 1953) (2), Charlton Heston ("Ben Hur", 1959) (2)

Some of the others were Barbra Streisand, Olivia de Havilland, Bette Davis, Greer Garson and Walter Brennan (twice).

2. I'd like to know an event they might civilly enjoy at The Central Ohio Home & Garden Show on Sunday, March 2.

For 10 Points:
"Chippers, Mowers & Leaf Blowers: Choosing the Big-Ticket Garden Tools" presented by Greg Bohls, Buckeye Power Sales; "Great Looking Flowering Containers & Hanging Baskets" presented by Ashton Ritchie, Scotts Miracle-Gro Spokesperson; "Solving Central Ohio Lawn & Garden Problems" presented by Ashton Ritchie, Scotts Miracle-Gro Spokesperson, Agronomist & Lawncare Expert
For 5 Points:
"Bulb Design: Plant It Once, Love It Forever" presented by Melissa Hoover Landscape Design Ltd. (2); "Creative Storage Ideas" presented by The Home Depot (2)

Five more to pick from - none too terribly different from the other, aside from some staying indoors and some others focusing on matters outdoors.

3. AOL's 10 Biggest Post-'American Idol' Failures. Name one of those ten "flops" on that list, OK?

For 10 Points:
Taylor Hicks - #3, Bo Bice - #6
For 5 Points:
Katharine McPhee - #4 (2), Corey Clark - #7 (3)

Justin Guarini, Constantine Maroulis, Tamyra Gray, Paris Bennett, Blake Lewis and Ruben Studdard also made the list. And, to be honest, a few of 'em named haven't been off the show long enough to have truly been considered "flops". They're still figuring out which way to steer their careers. Aside from Guarini, Clark and Maroulis, of course. They've nicely earned the "flop-ish" badge indeed .

4. Might you tell me a dictator (allegedly a "worst" of them) who DID make that not-so-honorable-to-be-on-it list today?

For 10 Points:
Omar al-Bashir, Sudan (#1); Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe (#4); King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia (#7)
For 5 Points:
Saparmurat Niyazov, Turkmenistan (#8) (2); Teodoro Obiang Nguema, Equatorial Guinea (#10) (2)

The other dubious characters here are: Kim Jong-il, North Korea; Than Shwe, Burma (Myanmar); Islam Karimov, Uzbekistan; Hu Jintao, China and Seyed Ali Khamane'i, Iran.

5. To close, I'd like to inquire as to a brand of bottled beer they sell at For Pete's Sake Pub in Philadelphia that one would pay more than $4 (US currency) for, each time they ordered one.

For 10 Points:
Chimay Blue 25 oz. ($14), Chimay Red 12 oz. ($6.50), Duvel ($5), Framboise ($9), Stella Artois ($4.50)
For 5 Points:
Dogfish Head 90 ($6) (2)

Or, if you wish, you might pony up the cash for an Ayinger Brau - Weisse ($6), Delirium ($6), Maredsous ($6), Saison Dupont ($8) or a Tetley's Ale ($5).

The Results!

40 Points! .... brandz_mygirl, denni19, nakarinna, zorba_scank
35 Points! .... Mugaboo
30 Points! .... maninmidohio, szabs

Lotsa points given out this time ! Everyone did a fine job indeed, but a special tip o' the hat to brandz_mygirl, denni19, nakarinna and zorba_scank! Each of those fine ladies get a monthly point. Thanks for playing, folks !

I apologize for missing Round 28 - it slipped through the cracks because of my being out of town and some miscommunication. I'll try to make sure it doesn't happen again... See you all in March!
