    We like your questions and multiple choice answers. you could send those questions to "Who Wants to be a Millionnaire?" They might use it in their program. Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Chinese New Year! It's year of the tiger. Take good care of yourself. God bless you.

    So exciting to see how much one misses, when not on the bus.
    Your site, not only takes us places, we may not be aware of,
    but also Geography Lessons, too.
    Thank you. You're really good at this.

    This is work, but well worth the education. Thanks.

  • Vernita 4 years ago

    The trivia questions were great! You really have my brain working hard on the answers!

  • Debi 4 years ago

    Well, it made my day to make your day! ;-) I'm also a BIG Colin Firth fan, and he was SO good in 'A Single Man' -- I was glad to see him get the BAFTA award. This is Wife #5 for James Cameron, btw. I read a New Yorker article about him a while back, and it seems like he might be... difficult...

  • Debi 4 years ago

    Good Morning! I left this at the bottom of my article, but thought I'd pop in here and say hello!

    @Brenda - I wondered the same thing -- great minds think alike! ;-) Yes, she is Sydney's daughter and Lena Horne's granddaughter. I was very impressed with the screenplay for "Rachel Getting Married," so I'll definitely see this movie.

    Enjoy your day!

    Aloha! Re: your question about Oak Alley Plantation...

    @Brenda -- I don't know for sure, but I think it may be. The website has a very extensive discussion of the property's history re: slavery... and, yes, I agree that's a very ugly part of our nation's past.
