2) Hawaii became the 50th state of the U.S. on 21 August 1959. It is made up of hundred of islands and is home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kileaua Volcano.

ROUND 7 - Tuesday

I couldn't think of anything specific to build my questions around, so you'll have to put up with "Anything" for now.

1. "ANYTHING Goes" is a musical written (music and lyrics) by Cole Porter. It had its debut on Broadway on November 21, 1934 at the Alvin Theatre, New York (currently Neil Simon Theatre) and it ran for 420 performances.
-- From the Internet Broadway Database page for Alvin/Neil Simon Theatre, please pick any musical that premiered before "Anything Goes" (a.k.a. before 1934).

2. "ANYTHING" and "Whatever" are two brands of soft drinks made and distributed in Singapore by the company Out Of The Box Pte Ltd. The Manager Director of the company said that "Whenever we were out at a gathering...people kept telling us they just wanted 'anything' or 'whatever' when we asked them what they wanted to drink. I found the concept really interesting and decided it would be a great idea for a unique Singapore beverage".
-- Please give me any flavour that "Anything" or "Whatever" soft drinks are produced in.

3. "ANYTHING But Love" was a TV series running between 1989-1992, where two co-workers who are attracted to each other don't want to spoil their friendship by starting a romantic relationship. [I wonder... is there anybody on this planet that hasn't been through this situation? ].
-- Please pick any episode from Season 4 of "Anything But Love".

4. People at Say ANYTHING Invitations elevated the making of wedding, baby announcements or shower invitations into an art form. Their invitations are designed by a professional design team and each invitation is hand-made using the finest papers and highest-quality materials. Their diverse line of invitations tend to have something for everyone.
-- From Say Anything Invitations website, please have your personal choice of Shower Invitations (collection).

5. Entertainment Weekly has on its website ('Movies' section) a photo gallery of performers whose name in the credits forces us to give even the most dubious TV or movie project the benefit of the doubt.
-- Please look for "50 Actors We'd Watch in ANYTHING (Part 1)" and give me one of the first 10 actors/actresses featured in that article [photos 1 to 10 from the 25 listed].

This Round will be closed on Monday noon - Fun Trivia time.
I'll be around if any clarification or link is needed.

Round 9 – Thursday

My all-time favourite author is the inimitable P G Wodehouse. Wodehouse is known as one of the great authors of the humour genre of books. In fact, Stephen Fry said about Wodehouse that “he has come closer than any writer of English to approaching Shakespeare's complete mastery and transcendency of language.” Reading a Wodehouse book is a sheer pleasure and making this round about ‘Plum’ is a greater pleasure.

Q1: Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (known affectionately as ‘Plum’) worked in a bank at the start of his working life. He began his writing career with a series of school books, before his first success came in the form of the 1915 novel “Something Fresh”. This was of the first of his many famous books. Wikipedia would help you to get a list of all books written by Wodehouse; from that list please tell me the name of any book published between 1915-1922 (as per UK publications dates).

Q2: Butlers and valets played a major role in most of Wodehouse’s novels. The most famous of them was Jeeves. This perfect gentleman’s gentleman spent much of his time extricating his master Bertie Wooster from many an imbroglio. From this link, please choose the name of any of the Jeeves novels, that has a different US title.

Q3 : The ‘Blandings Castle’ series is another of Plum’s popular books. The stories feature the amiable Lord Emsworth, his dominant sisters and his dapper brother Galahad. No Blandings Castle story is complete unless it has impostors and of course Emsworth’s prize pig ‘Empress of Blandings’. One of my favourite books in the series is “Uncle Fred in the Springtime”. Please tell me the name of any of the human characters who appear in the novel Uncle Fred in the Springtime (You can use Wiki to find the answer).

Q4 : Apart from his novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also involved in making musicals. He has written many plays and was also involved with Hollywood. The 1937 hit movie “A Damsel in Distress” was written by Wodehouse. From the IMDB page for the movie A Damsel in Distress, please choose the name of any of the lead characters in the movie (please ignore the uncredited characters).

Q5 : Wodehouse has been described as ‘English literature’s performing flea’. In his career spanning 70 years, he wrote more than 100 books. He died on Valentine’s day in 1975. Our own funtrivia site has many quizzes on Wodehouse. Funtrivia’s main site has a quiz titled ‘Blandings Castle’, please tell me any of the correct answers from that quiz.

That’s the end of the P G Wodehouse round. The round will close on 13th April, Monday. Looking forward to your answers .

Round 10

We have now had a round devoted to Hobart College (my alma mater) and a separate round on the name Hobart. As I mentioned before, Hobart College does not exist as a separate entity. Hobart College formed a union with William Smith College and they now operate as coordinate schools under the name Hobart and William Smith Colleges. William Smith College was founded in 1906 as a college for women (Hobart is for men) by William Smith, an area nurseryman, as a nondenominational, liberal arts institution dedicated to educating women broadly, not just vocationally. In that William Smith’s honor this will be the William Smith Round.

1. William Smith (1603–1645) was an English composer from the city of Durham. He is chiefly known for his set of choral responses for the Anglican liturgy of Evening Prayer. From the Book of Common Prayer (1662) comes the Preces and Responses that have been put to music by several composers, including William Smith. The Preces is composed of 12 statements by the priest/minister and 12 responses by the congregation. The sixth statement is the call to prayer which is followed by the congregation reciting the “Our Father” or Lord’s Prayer. Please give me one of the other responses that comes either before or after the Lord’s Prayer.

2. William Smith and William H. Smith were both awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry in an action in the Chiracahua Mountains of Arizona on October 20, 1869, during the Indian Wars. Please tell me the full name of another Medal of Honors winner during the Indian Wars with the last name of Smith.

3. William Forgen Smith was the Labor Premier of Queensland from 1932-1942. Please tell me another member of the Labor Party that was the Premier of Queensland (do not count the present Premier).

4. Billy Ray Smith, Sr played in the NFL (National Football League) during a 13 year career for the Los Angeles Rams, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Baltimore Colts. His son, Billy Ray Smith, followed him into the NFL playing his entire 10 year career for the San Diego Chargers. Both of them played their college ball for the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Arkansas Razorbacks have gone to many end of season bowl games. Please tell me the year and opponent at one of the Cotton Bowl appearances of the Razorbacks.

5. William Jay Smith is a noted American poet who was appointed the nineteenth Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 1968 to 1970. Please tell me an individual that held the post of Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress after William Jay Smith and before the title of the post was changed to Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress.

This William Smith Round will close noonish (FT time) on Wednesday, April 15. If you need help with any of the questions, just send me a message and I will be glad to help. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Round 13 is late. I was thinking of not posting Monday's round this week since it's already Wed - BUT - if you all don't mind, I think I will still get it out a bit later today. Just lots of little things and one unexpected bigger thing happening Monday and Tuesday, nothing horrible, just time consuming and somewhat tedious. Thankfully, I did get a very rough outline of the round done over the weekend. Be back in a bit (fingers crossed)
