    JEOPARDY!

    I'm a JEOPARDY geek from way back, even tried out a few years ago (got on the list, but didn't get the call). This week has been Teachers' Week-it's been fun to watch. Today was the final, between a third grade teacher, a high school science teacher, and a middle school math teacher.

    The third grade teacher won! She's $100,000 richer. The science teacher won herself $50,000, and the math teacher $25,000.

    Way to go!!

    I love Jeopardy - I have been sick yesterday and today, so i've been lounging on the couch. Watched it yesterday and today. Jeopardy is just so much fun to watch. I think I got a decent amount of the questions right today, not as many as I normally do because I have a fever, but I got a decent amount right.

    All three were very good contestants! The final Jeopardy question was way too hard.

    Yeah, I was expecting it to be something like a city/county/state that had been renamed, not that question/answer.

    What was the question? Don't tell me the answer. I want to see if I can get it. I usually get to watch Jeopardy while making dinner, but last week I had conferences and missed it!

    "Nothing is known of his early life in England before 1900 or of the end of his life in North America after June 22, 1611."

    It was a hard one! I was thinking it had to be something with Roanoke.

    My brother was also thinking something with Roanoke, but I was saying "No, no, can't be Roanoke, it was found abandoned in 1590."

    Then I couldn't figure out what it was.

    Then I facepalmed when the answer was given because I taught a lesson on that individual 2 years ago when I was doing a field experience in a fifth grade class and I remembered the answer right after it was given.
