Holy Heck, I posted this question almost a YEAR ago, and now I've forgotten the answer. I've even forgotten why and how I came up with the question.

So I'm accepting Binky's smart-@$$ answer as Correct! Your turn, Binky!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Hold on, hold on, hold on... there seems to be a slight case of anarchy running rampant in this fred, and I, SchmareSchnin, will not allow it!

The TobiasDon, you get back in your corner and wait for me to call you out here to post a Trivia Question. And Binky, you can just go iCanoodle with BeeDub whilst I figure out how to proceed.

* * *
Okay, I'm ready to make my judgment call. The Don, please come out of your time-out and post your Trivia Question now!

You were...it just seemed that you let more go with the younger kids.

But, talking with most of my friends, that's actually really common for parents. The younger kids get away with much more than the older kids ever did.

He's one of my very favorite musicians and no relation to Alfred.


A Wikipedia excerpt:

"Robyn Rowan Hitchcock (born March 3, 1953) is an English singer-songwriter and psych folk guitarist who also dabbles in most forms of art, in particular painting and poetry, and has occasionally shown an interest in acting.


Ok how about this, what is there of interest to see in the Columbus area?

The Columbus Ohio Temple?
The State Capitol Building?
Of interest to whom? What do you have in mind?

Oooh! I know! I know! And just in time, too. The answer is:

RED, WHITE, and BOOM!

One of the greatest fireworks shows on earth...right on the Scioto River.

And, there's COSI! Great for the kids!

And there's many, many other wonderful things to do and see in Columbus and the nearby areas.

Actually, I knew who Robyn Hitchcock is, and I know who Alfred Hitchcock was (in fact, I have a piece of paper with his autograph and a self-portrait caricature he gave me when we ran into him and his wife on our honeymoon in Hawaii in 1973). What I didn't know was whether they were related. Thanks, The Don.

Now. Where in Ohio are you moving to? It's a pretty big state. But if it's the Columbus area, there are myriads of fun places to go and cool things to do and see. The LDS temple is on the west side of Columbus, and the downtown area is pretty cool. Ohio State University is just north of downtown, complete with everything Buckeye-sports-related, if that's your thing. Art galleries. The Columbus Zoo. Wonderful shopping malls. COSI (Center of Science and Industry, a hands-on science museum that kids really love). New Albany is close by, home of Bath & Body Works.

Going a bit south (well, a bit north or west or east, too, for that matter... as long as you go away from a city), there are gorgeous rural areas and farmland and open spaces, but also shopping and services near enough that you don't feel isolated. Really southern Ohio has the Ohio River. Cincinnati area has King's Island and a waterpark, the Cincinnati Reds, and Skyline Chili. I avoid Cincinnati as much as possible.

Northern Ohio: the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum is in Cleveland, the Football Hall of Fame is in Canton. Cedar Point and Sea World are up there, as is Lake Erie.

Central Ohio is the best place in the world to live. I am not the least bit biased in my views.

We're looking at Cincinnati/Dayton/Columbus as far as places to live. I'm familiar alread with Cincinnati and the Mrs. knows the city real well. Columbus, however, is a bit of an enigma still. We're probably going to have to live with the in-laws, who live in Wilmington, for a little bit until we find a job and a place to live.

I've been to King's Island a couple of times now and enjoyed it a lot. The science museum sounds like a lot of fun.

I'm impressed with your Hitchcock knowledge and having met Sir Alfred himself.


Here's some related trivia, How many Oscars did Alfred Hitchcock win?

No idea. Doubt if he even knew. Maybe my friend Mister Google can help me.

[Edit, after trying to cheat my way to an answer] Nominated five times, won zero times. Right?

Correct. Rebecca won best picture but Hitchcock was not the producer so he received no Oscar. He was given an honorary lifetime achievement Oscar in the twilight of his life.

I love that term, "twilight of his life." Heh. I'm at about 5:45 pm, myself.

:oops:
Well, not only did I derail the game off into related discussions of my honeymoon in Hawaii, what I love about Ohio, and who knows what else, I also plumb forgot to post a nbew Trivia Question. Even though, technically, I cheated my way to getting a turn. My bad.

Come and get me, copper!

Oh, wrong thread. Sorry.
