Weekend Trivia: Sunday

So, for today, some respite from having to think really hard (I never did figure out your question, Nancy).

Today, we are traveling. It is time for an adventure and this country offers plenty of that. Your first clue is that 5% of all known plant and animal species can be found here...and here alone.

There, that was easy.

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

lol -TM. I am thinking of my kitchen sink, or another name for it....am I warm Cynthia?

Nancy. Who needs to go log in now!!

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Hmmmm, somewhere tropical? Am I getting warm or cold.

Ha. I was planning to work in all the rain we had yesterday. The poor Kousa in our front yard was on an island yesterday! Then, come summer, the place is a desert. Sigh. When it is wet, our drainage is so awful that I feel as though I should take a snorkel along when I walk in the low areas. No reefs here though.

I bet any grandchildren out there could help with this one!

Now you've got me thinking tropical island but which one???

Annette

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Would the grandchildren think of this because of a certain movie?

TM

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Ohhhh TM, I think I know where you're going with that, you may have just nailed it. I'm going to ride in on your coattails :).
I read a book awhile back about this place, about the goings on on an indigo plantation. Apparently that stuff really smells bad.

This week in school, something about pirates came up and my kiddoes had no idea there really were (and still are) pirates. Too funny.

Sigh. I used my best clue too soon, it seems.

Cynthia


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Oh, no grandchildren so I don't keep up with Disney movies. Pirates bring to mind the coast of Africa and the Tom Hanks movie but I didn't see that either.

It must be an island though for the unique species to evolve.

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

I think that I get this, and it has 3 versions, I think. Love those penquins.
At least I think that's where you're going. Don't call for help with your cable today - we are on the lines and it ain't pretty!! Lol

Nancy..

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Bobbie, you are on the right track. Deserts, rain forests, pirate cemetery.

I think I need to practice my French on a daily basis. It is so useful in so many places.

Cynthia

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Yes, and the capital has a really long name, or is that a close neighbour?

There, I made it though the first day!! omg, I think my neck is 2" shorter than it was this am!!

Nancy.


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Here's another hint since all the clues I am thinking of are either stupid, absurd, or ridiculous or all three. It is the fourth largest islands on Earth.

Cynthia


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Hmmmm, I can't tell if I am on the right track. The one I am thinking of is off the SE coast of Africa. (I had to look that up.)

I hope this doesn't make anyone Mad, but tomorrow you will need to wait until I get home from school for your stars-GW is not an approved website at school, so no access. Have to stop on the way to put Gas in the Car. Heehee. Pathetic, isn't it?

Yes, TM, you are definitely on the right track.

Cynthia

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

So funny Cynthia - you are good at your clues!!!

Nancy.


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Okey doke.

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Cyn you are a hoot, Madagascar is what I was thinking, TM's mention of the movie is what clenched it for me.

Annette


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

My response has disapeared. Cynthia's last clue confirmed my thought of Madagascar as well.


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Yes, funny movies. The capital is Antananarivo - just try saying the once. I tried to do a ti kdt to there once - omg!! It was crazy. I'll never forget that.

Nancy

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Woohoo! Stars all wrapped up for al of you!

Yes, Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and boasts 5% of the world's plant and animal species. Lots to do there. They have deserts, rain forests, beaches, and terrible roads. It would be a cool place to visit, I think, but as Nancy intimated, probably too expensive for me to get there. Once there, however, it should be relatively inexpensive. I am linking the Lonely Planet site that gives you all kinds of info if you do go to visit-Lonely Planet travel books are terrific.

Here is a link that might be useful: Madagascar

Oh and have a wonderful week all. Thanks for playing and always being such good sports!

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Good question, Cynthia. I thought about submitting my answer in the form of a rebus, showing a mad person, gasoline, and a car, but I was too lazy to put it together.

Thanks for the brain stimulation.

RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Love the raccoon photo and starry package. So, there have been three Madagascar Disney movies, how did I miss them all?

Thanks for the fun.


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Those are lemurs, Bobbie! From Madagascar!


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

TM, that would have been great! Maybe we should come up with a lot of those for each other to solve!

Hmmm...

Cynthia


 o
RE: Weekend Trivia: Sunday

Of course those are lemurs, my bad.
