(click an image to enlarge and start a slide show)
Fascinating, but what does it mean? Rotarian Fred Bittle led the club through a series of questions, which was an idea inspired by Al Walker in previous years. It was a club challenge, in a fun, competitive spirit of camaraderie. Yes, we know date of the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria. Hmmm. Spanish, French, English, Romanian, Portuguese, Greek, or Italian? The non-Romance language? Now we bow our head to pray... 
What the heck is a prime number?
With 10% down, zero percent financing, we can put you into a new Chevy for only... Hawthorne, Clemens, Melville, Poe, Salinger, Hemingway, et. al.  A man, a plan, a canal, Panama. So? What about it? It's Ethyl alcohol. I can taste it. 7% solution. Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, prepositions, interjections, and, and, and,...
The two smartest Rotarians in the room. First prize winners, Team Alan-Dulcie. I got the answers right here in my hands. Chelsea, please text back. When was Mrs. O'Leary's cow and the lantern? Chicago, 1871. Look out for that pencil in the eye! The Great Lakes? Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior - HOMES.
What in the world are LOL, OMG, TMI, BTW, DOA, CSI, GSR, DNR? 1+2+3+...+98+99+100=3146 And the answers to the questions are... Gee, that was fun. Well, some would say it was insane, inane, mundane, or even arcane. Or all of the above. Why isn't Arizona, the Grand Canyon State, on this quiz? No Sun Devils?
One gallon equals how many fluid ounces? Of course, 128. First time back and they throw a quiz at me. Gosh, my tests aren't this difficult at Allan Hancock. Michelangelo, Rodin, da Vinci, Van Gogh? Sure, I have a few of those at home.
