    The question about Longwood House was interesting. Just last week I was reading about the opening of the new airport on Saint Helena and the impending
    retirement of the RMS Saint Helena. However, the Brits and Aussies I knew in Taiwan pronounced it (SAYNT-he-LEE-ne). Trebek’s pronunciation seems
    to be preferred by Americans. Longwood House (one of three properties) has been owned by the French government since 1858, and is under the
    control of the French Foreign Ministry. A French representative lives on the island to manage these properties. Good luck to Mr. Cohen, he’s good.

    Congrats to Buzzy on Win No. 8 and being on the only one to get Final Jeopardy today. Thought that was pretty easy – all they had to do was think of the nickname for Antoinette to come up with it.

    Is it corny to say Buzzy is Grrreatt?

    LOL

      Corny is rather appropriate in this case, Mimsy — corny flakes. LOL!!

      Almost forgot to post — Here is the link to the rest of today’s triple stumpers and the Harry Potter category

    34/59 here. THe Guru/Love Guru turnaround in the Razzie worst actor category probably kept this game from being another lock

    Don’t know how many of you watch the Business Channel Show on CNBC “The Closing Bell.” I watch it every weekday between 4&5 EST. To my surprise, Buzzy Cohen was interviewed on there today. He said the show we see this week was taped in April & 5 shows are taped a day. After the 3rd show taping they go to lunch.

    He explained the meaning behind brushing his shoulders the 1st 2 tapings. His father owns a clothing store & asked him to promote his business. The other gestures come from being a fan of SNL.

    When asked what he was going to do with his winnings he said set up a college fund for his daughter but he hasn’t received the money yet. Does that mean he’s going to be on there for some length of time or he just didn’t want to reveal anything? Very good interview though sitting in the sun relaxing with Jane Wells my favorite finance business interviewer on that channel.

      Thanks for sharing that, Jacob. Buzzy smoothed back his hair on both sides and brushed off both his shoulders in today’s intro. LOL. He mentioned his father’s clothing business in the chat and said his father has been supplying him with suits to wear on the show. He also said the store’s name is a male name but no one in his family has ever been named that.

      Didn’t take me long to find it. (I know you’re not surprised). Sam’s Fine Men’s Clothing in Livingston, NJ.

      I got in a fender bender near there once. :0

        VJ, no I’m not surprised. CNBC has the video online already of the interview. I sent you the link so you can link it to FF for everyone to see. That was quick.

        Darn. They don’t win after they get interviewed. Guess he’s done this week

    • rhonda says:

      Thanks so much for telling us about the interview, Jacob and for sharing the link.

        Rhonda, you’re welcome. I watch that show every weekday to see how the stock market ends and for breaking business news. Imagine my surprise when they mentioned the Buzzy Cohen interview would be aired.

    Whew! He won although it certainly wasn’t a sexy win. He’s not blowing away his opponents with 30k scores
