    Look at the word that has been put in bold - observation.

    March 1 - Sunday

    Which state never ratified the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which established Prohibition?

    Take a guess folks you have a 1 in 48 chance in guessing the state. When the 18th amendment was ratified Alaska and Hawaii were not yet states.

    Submission of a Touring Tip is not required for a guess but if you do submit a tip in a PM, here on the forum or via email, in order to complete submission of your Touring Tip:

    Please send
    First Name - Family Name & MOA Number
    City and State

    Thank You
    Paul

    Monday, March 02

    Did not know that Julia Child was a spy for the OSS until visiting an exhibit about her life at the newly re-opened museum of American History.


    Today's Trivia Question:
    What did famed chef Julia Child cook up for the U.S. Navy during World War II, when she was working as a spy for the Office of Strategic Services?

    Answer: A shark repellent that kept sharks from bumping into and setting off underwater explosives planted by the Navy to disable German U-boats. The repellent, developed by Child and her OSS team, was used to coat the explosives.

    Tuesday, March 03 - A capital trivia question

    Name the capital of each of these U.S. states. Then take a letter from the same position in each word and, with rearranging, read the letters down to get other capital. Be careful! No grammatical error.

    Oregon
    California
    Texas
    Florida
    New York


    Good Luck!

    ANSWER:
    Salem
    Sacramento
    Austin
    Tallahassee
    Albany

    Take the last letter of each state capital to get other capital: MONEY which is capital. Yeah it was tricky.

    Will be back soon with trivia for March 4th.

    What two words, formed from different arrangements of the same six letters, can be used to complete this sentence?

    After a hard-fought _________________, the military commander swallowed an aspirin ______________.

    What do these five things have in common? Don't get tired trying to figure it out! There is a clue in that sentence.

    NIFTY
    RATIONAL
    COLLAR
    SKIRTS
    DAVIS



    OK this was a tough one!

    And the answer is:
    NIFTY ... Thrifty
    RATIONAL ... National
    COLLAR ... Dikkar
    SKIRTS ... Hertz
    DAVIS ... Avis


    Each rhymes with the name of a major car rental company: Thrifty, National, Dollar, Hertz, and Avis

    GIVE ME A . . .

    For each pair of U.S. colleges or universities below, add the same letter once to each pare to make a common word out of each school. There’s no need to rearrange letters. The added letter will be different from pair to pair. And if you are really cooking with high test there is more than one answer for #s 2 & 3 although the words are obscure.

    1. EMORY and COE
    2. MAINE and BAKER
    3. HANOVER and LEE
    4. BARNARD and SMITH
