Contest Time ~

Well, it’s been about  month since the last trivia contest – so, time for another, don’t you think?    Hmmmm….. since I favor all kinds of random information and I get to come up with the questions – let the random questioning begin:


1. What do nobel prize winner  Menachem Begin and Madonna have in common?  Extra credit if you can tell me who the co-winner of the nobel prize was in 1978.

2. During August, in the evening, the “Summer Triangle” can be found in the Eastern sky. The triangle consists of the three brightest stars in the sky. Name those three stars.   Your name will be entered twice if you can name the constellation(s) that each of the three stars belong to. (Got to love  extra credit).

 3. What did Margaret Mitchell first call Scarlett O’Hara when she was writing Gone With The Wind?

4. Which First Lady said “I want minimum information given with maximum politeness.”?

The contest will be open until Midnight,  Sunday evening.  Then all correct entries will be put into my “random number generator” and  a winner will be chosen.

What will you win? A skein of Plucky Knitter yarn dyed in either your blogs colors or a colorway of your choice along with a grab bag of goodies.

Let the games begin!

    I’m guessing that because comments are moderated I can submit my answer here… I hope I’m right about that. Here’s my attempt at answering:

    1) Menachem Begin and Madonna were both born on August 16th (and the co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1978 was Mohamed Anwar al-Sadat).

    2) The three stars in the Summer Triangle are Vega (in the constellation Lyra), Deneb (in the constellation Cygnus), and Altair (in the constellation Aquila).

    3) Margaret Mitchell first called Scarlett O’Hara “Pansy O’Hara” when she was writing Gone With the Wind.

    4) Jacqueline Kennedy said “I want minimum information given with maximum politeness.”
