These are the thoughts of a Texas transplant in West Michigan who makes his living as a newspaper reporter by evening, and a struggling novelist by day.

ne, trina and papa

as the night slide along and only the sound of crickets accompanied us, trina and i decided to sit and watch a documentary on hemingway. i sat on my stool and she sat patiently, or should i say impatiently, by my side. (though, i think she only sat there because she wanted to lick the popsicle stick after i'd eaten the ice cream.)

it was conforting. it's the time of the day where all is quiet. most are alseep and i feel special, as if i'm alone at times. sometimes i go out on the porch and listen with a drink. it's peaceful. i like that. even though it's city, life's relatively quiet.

but there was no outdoors tonight. we sat and watched papa on the screen. i get a kick out of watching and listening to a show on him. while i do not envy his personality or lifestyle, i do envy his sense of adventure, his sense of accomplishment and sense of dong. he saw a lot in his time.

there was europe - italy, france, spain, switzerland. there was florida, cuba, wyoming, the UP, travels in africa and asia. he met people and screwed over people. he hung out with artists, painters and writers. saw bullfights, was shot in a war, went big game hunting, fished in the gulf, hunted in wyoming. so much life he crammed into his 60 plus years. that's good.

and as i watched, my little feline wrapped herself around my legs, playing. i petted her on the back near the tail where she likes it. she purred until she left.

and now it's time to sleep. i must teach this morning. i feel good. very good.

In that case, this kind of question should not be taken from any show telecasted in specific country.
* Team answer sheets - Basically a grid lined A4 type sheet with answer write
in numbered boxes and a line on top for the team name.
Ask your local club to run this for you.

DJ spins out on Saturday nights. I believe my exact words were "I don't want to be your dirty little secret. Theme Format: It is almost like standard format of the pub quiz.

The only hurdle to accessing this is of course human limitations
and the fact that the brain does not function
solely as a learning tool for the human being.

Brazenhead is a great place to go with your family or for a business lunch
or dinner, but if you are looking for a party atmosphere, this isn't it. They feature almost nightly drink specials and some form of entertainment every night of the week--DJ's,
live music, trivia, you name it.

Also, we need to determine the rounds of the quiz
according to it. At the end of each round read
out the cumulative scores. The food is decent and the drink specials on Tuesdays include $2.
