Prize:

A decorative birdhouse that resembles a lighthouse. The trivia contest winner will email me his/her address and the prize will be shipped out via USPS within 14 days of the end of the contest. The postage will be paid by me, your illustrious host. Please don't post your address in the forum.

Rules:

The first one to answer five trivia questions correctly will win the birdhouse. I will only accept unedited replies for answers. This contest is open to anyone living in the US with the exception of RI, NY, and FL. Unfortunately, if you live in Rhode Island, New York, or Florida you are not eligible to win since I'd have to register the contest with that state. <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Here is today's trivia question:

Good luck everyone - the August trivia game is going to be fun!!

The first
circus in the United States was in Newport in 1774.

I just saw this and went to find the answer and when I got back ... I see Kitty was here. I was wondering where she was. All the while I was thinking ... perhaps for once I can post the answer before her...

I couldn't resist but to answer<G>

My answer, however, is different from Chris' (and I checked it with the Circus World Museum site) - John Bill Ricketts presented the first circus in America in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on April 3, 1793.

I'm going to take Chris's answer here. I got the answer (well, question) from a Rhode Island site. All the questions have something to do with New England <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Here's the score:

Chris 1

BTW, Kitty, I'm glad you are enjoying the game I sent you <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Gotta work on getting more people to participate in this game...

Also, I am playing the Early Childhood, Literary and Classic Rock forums' trivia....LOL, I am a glutton for punishment.

I sure would like some competition ....although I'd like to win the prize ... I feel guilty cuz noone else is playing.

I waited to answer hoping someone else would join in.

I see where you put the game on your main page...how much traffic have you had for that page?

I've yet to figure out how to drive people to the forums ... when I have a chance I am going to follow Danielle's suggestions for "Announcing" the newsletters and perhaps plug the forums there.

I figured, since I am such a trivia-crazed woman, that I would put an article featured on my topics listing the trivia games that are in-progress here at Bella. I think there are three or four going right now!

Hope it helps!

It's my twelveth most hit page on my site. I also mention the contest in my newsletter every week - there are 54 subscribers right now. I was hoping for a couple of new players this month. I mentioned the game to a list I'm on & I haven't seen anyone from there pop in.

I want to go through the newsletter list too - maybe that'll help out here...

Yippee ... some competition

BTW ... trivia isn't my thing either but I'm a transplanted New Englander so the game makes me think of home.

Nope! Vermont isn't it. Try again. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

However, if you do have a source that says Vermont, could you give me the url? I've got a source with a different answer.

Ok well I thought it was Vermont and I checked Google last night and sure enough Winsor, Vermont came up. <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I've checked this morning and so far I've found three different sites that all say something different. It's the kind of day I'm having :rolleyes:

I'm going to go with Boston, MA because I've found two sites that say that.

That's what I have is Massachusetts - I will go check out that Windsor VT one though. Could be that both states are laying claim to that honor <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

So our new score is:

Cheryl 1
Chris 3

Here is today's question:

Where was the first telephone book published?

I was worried Kitty was lurking here somewhere eek ... she's the queen of trivia.

Chris honestly trivia is NOT my forte. How I've managed to get in here and answer these questions before you is absolutely amazing, and it will probably never happen again. Ask Kitty, she's been moppin' the floor with me in Paula's game. <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I only knew today's answer because I just read the local paper while I was eating lunch and it lists celebrity bdays.

WOOO HOOOO, congrats, my friend Cheryl. I am ALWAYS lurking (just check out how many "Prime Time Kitty"s are all over the main page!) LOL.

Great questions, great game EVERYONE!!!!! I have to keep from hitting "Reply" and I am spreading myself out among the other Bella trivia games. I just hope I don't bug everybody.....

TRIVIA is my LIFE!!! Naw, I just for some strange reason love trivia and have a photogenic memory for the subjects that I like!!!

Congrats again, Cheryl!!!! Go Chris.....keep trying. I will always be lurking and jumping in here and there...

(Ha, Ha, Ha......and Prime Time Kitty fades away....into the shadows of Trivialand....)

LOL Jeanne I sat for at least 30 minutes trying to get all the peanuts out of the lighthouse. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> I finally said "ah to heck with it, noone is gonna see those inside there with this sitting on my quilt rack". My dh laughed and said sooner or later I'll get them all out.

I'll watch for the game.

LOL!!!! Just work on those peanuts while you are watching TV or something. hehehe. I have a large pink ceramic piggy bank that we put all of our pennies into. It's a pain trying to get them all out so I have a good idea of what you are going through. I only saw about 6 peanuts go into the birdhouse, but suspected many more would find a new home during shipping!!
