History, memorizing dates, wars, and people just was not my thing in high school or college……BUT give me a piece of trivia that I can enjoy for the day, share in ‘water cooler’ conversations, and then when I put my head down for the night, it can also go to bed without any consequences…now that is my thing! That said, I have decided that since this blog is a potpourri of life I would like to try a Daily Trivia post….we will see how it is received, if you share it with others and what kind of responses I get. Everything here, since this is brand new to me, is trial and error….if it is not well-received, then I will find something else!!!! Open to suggestions, by the way! 🙂
So, for our first Daily Trivia I have chosen an all time favorite…..Paddington Bear! Here you are, have fun with the memories this little guy brings up….share them in a comment for the rest of us to enjoy!!!!
Have a wonderful day!
