Beep Beep Beep

 It's January 8, 2021 and it has been almost 4 years since our last post. 

The world has changed. The last post took place during what can truly be named "Before" times.  

Not only has our dear Alex Trebek passed away due to a swift bout of cancer but more current events keep on coming. 

The global pandemic has been raging in the US for over 9 months. Trump, the country's 45th president has done incalculable damage to our country and our hearts. 

Just two days ago was the insurrection when Trump supporters gained access to our nation's capitol with guns and ammunition trying to stop the electoral college votes from being officially official (they were certified in each state but Congress and Senate needed to ok them.)

So why does that bring me here?

I needed some joy to pass on and this brought me joy. 

I hope you enjoy it, too and I hope to see some more updates here within the next 4 years!

Cheese. C-H-E-E-S-E

Long story short - I watched Jeopardy last week with my Jeopardy loving sister and brother in law.
Seth Wilson was his name and you could say that Jeopardy was his game. He had won about 3 games already and had a nice sum. Something like $131K give or take. He won. And that was last week.
Tonight I turned it on to see if he was still winning and he wasn't there. In fact, no men were there. It was 3 female contestants so I decided to watch it thru. And then I learned that Margie - the champ - had just beaten Seth Wilson the evening before that. He was a 12 time winner of approximately $340K and Alex Trebek said he ranked #5 for all time winners. Wow. "Seth"

Fun categories in Round 1:
British Spelling Test! Cheque, Recognise, etc.
Cheese: Parmigiana, Asiago,
TV in the Year 2000
Survivor
David Letterman
Sex and the City
Kevin James
Robert Downey, Jr (was on Ally McBeal - I forgot about that!)


Sarah from Pittsburgh - prepared for the show by buying a shower curtain! With a world map. Ba dum dum.
Randi from Kalamazoo - she writes poems! And she wrote one about Jeopardy! Of course, she did.
Margie from Bethesda - a ride share driver for Uber and Lyft.
Call her!

Here is final Jep.
It was a good one.

These two secretaries of state graduated with B.A.s from Wellesley 10 years apart.
Who is Albright and Clinton?
Sarah won with $21, 800.

Jeopardy! in norge





Friends were over and inevitably, Jeopardy! came up as it does in many conversations in these parts.
Understand that Jeopardy! has different versions in some countries - we were informed there was a version of Jeopardy in Norway  (1995-2000, 2004) with a pretty terrific promo.

I'd have our friend write this post to but she's in Norway on holiday, as Norwegians do!

ha det!

A milestone or is it?

I talked about this in my previous post- 'this' being Alex (Levy) remembering his first Jeopardy answer.  The end of the kindergarten school year is near and Alex came home with project folders of his school work from the year.
What's this I see? A binder titled "Alex Levy-- Weekend Stories".  How sweet, oh look, we played, he went to a party, he saw Grandma....and then....THIS:




I'll translate:  Name: Alex Date: 1-11-16....'My first one right on Jeopardy.' Notice the players-- Steve was definitely there as Ava, me thinks, not sure about the other A.  I may have yelped when I saw this page.

Please note that Harper, Alex's 4 year old sister, has said to her father, 'I don't want to watch Jeopardy. It's boring!'
