Hot Stinky Cheese?
My blog was found by using the search "Hot Stinky Cheese".


Alrighty Then! Other search strings (that keyed my blog) were:

Norman Movie Cow (Great. Diet time for me)
Swansea Wales faint panties. (What the???)

Those were the only interesting ones.

Did I mention I went to the Balloon Fiesta? I have a ton of pictures, but I won't torture ya'll with a collection of family pics. A lot of them show me with an eat shit look on my face, cause I was trying to manhandle 3 cranky kids by myself while my darling husband wandered around taking pictures.

But - I promised to post the answers to my Know it all quiz - and I just know everyone is waiting anxiously for these to appear.. (hahahah yeah right). Did anyone know the answers?

They are:

1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends . . . boxing

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward . . . Niagara Falls (The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons . . . asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The only sport in which the ball is always in possession of the team on defense, and the offensive team can score without touching the ball... baseball.

5. The fruit with its seeds on the outside . . strawberry.

6. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle. (The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.)

7. Three English words beginning with "dw". Dwarf, dwell and dwindle.

8. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar . . . period, comma,colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation point, quotation marks, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

9. The original lakes referred to in Lakers . . . in Minnesota. (The team was originally known as the Minneapolis Lakers, and kept the name when they moved west.)

10. Seven ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit . . . taking a base on balls (a walk) . . . batter hit by a pitch, passed ball, catcher interference, catcher drops third strike, fielder's choice, and being designated as a pinch-runner.

11. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh . lettuce.

12. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with "s"., socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes, stockings, stilts.

Tell the truth now! How many did you guys get right, without googling it?
