A Warning, and Trivia

Tonight at dinner Hallie pointed to the juice and said, "Is that apple juice?"

Devin responded, "No, that's cherry limeade." 

Hallie thought about that for a moment, and then she said, "Ok.  Well, I'm going to call it apple juice.  May I have some apple juice please, daddy?"

This story is just to let you know that at our house, things aren't always what they are called.  You've been warned.

And now, for some Olympics Trivia.  Person who gets the most right answers without cheating* wins, and the prize is... something really special.  I keep thinking a king size candy bar, but in this heat you'd open the package and think, "Why did Amy send me the contents of a dirty diaper wrapped in a snickers package?... oh wait, is this my candy bar from winning that trivia game? Ew." So, let's not do that.  I'll think of something.  How do Skittles hold up in the heat?

True or False:

The last Olympic Gold medals awarded that were made entirely out of gold were awarded in 1916.

Badminton, table tennis, and handball are the only sports in which the U.S. has never won a medal.

At the London games, the medals will be the largest and the heaviest in Olympic history.

The United States won 112 medals in the Beijing Olympics.

And bonus question:

At the Olympics in Paris in 1900, no medals were awarded.  Winners were instead given --------------.

*By cheating, I mean "using google".  I won't say that if you do your Skittles will choke you as you try to enjoy them, but it just wouldn't be nice to everyone else who wants to play, would it?



  1. I don't know any of the answers! Feel free to mail me candy anyway, because I didn't cheat! ;)

    Jeff is going to look into the price of antennas while he is at the store tonight, so maybe soon we will get local channels. We really want to watch the Olympics.

  2. I'm going to say:
    1) False. They better be solid, real gold.
    2) False. I'm sure we've won badminton.
    3) True. I don't know why, but I think this is true.
    4) True.
    and bonus: laurels? trophies? leis with a few flowers dipped in gold, silver, or bronze? Ken said laurels, so if that's right, put me down as that.

  3. Now of course I'm googling, because I want to know!

  5. I didn't cheat. (I didn't get the answers either.) Thanks for keeping us up-to-date with the Roses.
    Love, grandpa h.

  6. I'ma say all false. Bonus: olive branches. eh?
