I’m not a huge fan of reality TV, which seems to be in conflict with most of the rest of America. I used to watch a few reality shows, but I’m tired of it. It’s run it’s course and I’m ready to say goodbye. Except for one show - The Masked Singer.

I LOVE this show! It’s such a different twist from the rest of the reality music shows like American Idol, The Voice and X-Factor. I watched the first show and was hooked - I can’t wait for next season! Today I want to see how many of you share my enthusiasm. So…..our topic today is:

Boy, does time fly! It seems like I just dropped off my son on move-in day for his freshman year of college. In reality, he’s a senior! As I was thinking about his graduation and his plans for grad school, I started reminiscing and remembering all the times I sat next to him on the couch, watching his favorite TV shows with him. Which, of course, leads me to today’s Trivia Topic:

Children’s TV Shows

It never ceases to amaze me how I can have 2000 channels on my cable service and there’s nothing good on to watch. Kind of makes me wish for the good ‘ol days.

Sometimes.

I know, I know - there are lots of reboots on right now to fulfill my yearning, but honestly, those shows have had their days in the sun. I prefer something new and original.

Having said that, I am feeling a bit nostalgic right now, so we’re going to go back in time. Today’s topic is:

People have asked me many times where I get the trivia questions that I use.  I get them from a variety of sources - books, online trivia sites, newspaper articles, submissions from readers, etc. Most I get from my own life - a song that was on the radio as I drove to work, a TV show I used to watch or that I recently watched, a vacation I took, etc. 

Recently, I was doing my grocery shopping at Meijer and the cashier who rang me up gave me an interesting trivia tidbit, which I will classify as

Welcome to July!  A lot of important historical events took place in July in the United States.  We adopted the Declaration of Independence.  The first income tax bill was signed into law and the Bureau of Internal Revenue was established. The Battle of Gettysburg began.  Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall began his tenure on the court. Apollo 11 lifted off from Kennedy Space Center.  We have a rich history (some good, some bad).  I wasn't very interested in history class in school, but as an adult that has changed.

I'll bet you know where I'm going with this. Our topic today is:
