Weekend Trivia: Saturday
Good morning everyone!
Having lots of storms here last night ushered in clean air and cool temperatures. It is one of those perfect mornings.
Note: this next part is not, REPEAT, NOT a clue: I was so excited/sad yesterday morning when I went out to change the water in the bird baths. There was a small snake in one of them-black on top, light underneath. I suppose he was just a small garter snake of some sort, but sadly , he had drowned. This is the first time I have ever seen one in our yard! I would love to have a black snake that would rid me of the chipmunks! Not sure how they would fare with the dogs, though.
So straight to triva since I want to get cleaning done and get outside before things heat up.
In September 1066 there were two important invasions in Europe. One I suspect we all know since the date was seared into our memories in high school, but can you identify the other (gotta love the History channel which I watched last Sunday-ha)? One led to a new power being established and the other led to the end of another power. Also, interestingly, there is a connection between the two. More on that later.
I'll be back with clues if you need them. I found this interesting because I had no idea these occurred in the same month!
