    A better game today than yesterday. I was very frustrated for not getting FJ—so obvious after it was revealed—but I had no idea what the DR flag looked like and 1200’s didn’t help me. Never gave any thought to the word “Dominican” before.

    By contrast, I found yesterday’s FJ very easy, even though I never read the book. Of 3 Volcanos, Etna (on Sicily), Vesuvius (not Island), so Stromboli it is.

    Alex was probably pleased with the contestants getting all Canada’s clues.

      I was raised Catholic so it was religious order that gave it to me right away. I loved my saints book when I was little and knew about the orders started by St. Dominic, Francis, Benedict, etc. My grandmother had a calendar every year that had the feast day saint on every day.

        Well, let’s just say that they tried to raise me Catholic too, but I rebelled against it, lol.

        Speaking of flags, it reminds me of an FJ clue on flags at the beginning of last year and some of the discussion got a little annoying and you commented with a link of galleries of flags on Wikipedia, mentioning all kind s of things found in flags “…people, animals, keys, trees, plants,…”

        See, if you had included bibles, I’d have got today’s FJ, lol!

        • VJ says:

          Peut-être, Cece peut-être pas. LOL, I did find that flag gallery rather fascinating, particularly the African flags, at the time (looking back, the game you’re remembering was on 2-4-15). But I would be hard-pressed to remember more than a handful in 30 seconds without some helpful hints. :):)

          PS – speaking of saints, St. John Bosco was a particular favorite of mine when I was little. I thought that Bosco chocolate syrup was named after him. LOL. Check out these retro Bosco jars.

        • Cece says:

          Thanks for the link to that game; I gotta take a look at that flag gallery. Those retro Bosco jars are so cool. Did you collect them as a child?

        • VJ says:

          No, I do remember the Bosco bear jar but I didn’t collect anything when I was a child. My brother was like Jenn’s twin… perhaps she was kidding but I’m not. I learned very early to keep my mouth shut about anything I really liked. We did look a lot alike too and people would ask if we were twins, but he was a year older and shot up to 6 feet at age 14 when I was 5’3″ (and still am)

    Easy fj today if you know your flags otherwise its somewhat easy. Having that year in the fj might possibly have been confusing.

    Surprised that only 1 person got it right. Didn’t Amelia give an incorrect response of Dominican Republic to an earlier question? The correct answer was Panama.

    • VJ says:

      Yes, Rhonda, that was another Native Land clue “Mariano Rivera, Ruben Blades” that produced two wrong guesses. Mike said Cuba. Cost them each $1,000.

    I know that everyone who watches JEOPARDY! is still waiting for our 1st 4-time champion since Matt Jackson, but guess who else is waiting for our 1st 4-time champion since Matt Jackson? ME! But, that’s not the only thing I’m anxiously waiting for. I’m also waiting for the 14th spot in my 6th version of Tournament Of Champions, and I still can’t catch a break. If only Amelia was the only 1 to get final right instead of Mike, or if the categories were to her liking in yesterday’s game, or if it wasn’t for food coma, it would have been a different story, and I would have gotten the 14th spot. Instead, Amelia Hershberger is DISQUALIFIED! 1 more disqualification like that, and I’m going straight up to the owner of the commissary and force him, or her to close it down FOR GOOD!
