A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

Men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage - they've experienced pain and bought jewelry.

BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

Baseball or great boomer-era music. Take your pick. Whichever one you love, this is the Upper for you! We've got 'em both.

Two minutes of good, clean fun.

This Week with the Chicowitz

Remembering the Y2K Bug

When all the shouting, pushing, and shoving is over, this Y2K thing is little more than the ultimate revenge of the computer nerds. Like most great issues of the day, it is a story about power, money, and prestige. (Yes, it is also a little about sex, but this being a family-oriented web site, I do not wish to get into that here. There is nothing worse than mentioning computer geeks and sex in the same paragraph. Thank you; no.)

Do you know the Republican candidates? Study up. Need even more time? OK. Next week we’ll have a pop-quiz.

I Remember... August 24, 1969

"You can get anything that you want, at...."

A song that was so long (18 minutes), they made a movie out of it.

I remember August 24, 1969; it is the day that "Alice's Restaurant" was released. It was one of the first motion pictures aimed squarely at the boomer, anti-establishment audience.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. First, our current events question:
Jimmy Carter was in the news last week. We wish him well. Let's see now... Jimmy Carter was... president... of the United States. Fine. But who was his vice-president?
.

2. Arlo Guthrie... singer/songwriter, of course. Following in his father's footsteps. What was Arlo's father's first name?

3. " means quality," said the captain to the boatswain. "So ask for the package with the ship that sails the ocean."

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.

Members can play all of our trivia games in The BBHQ Trivia Library.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

This one is called the Spelling Bee... for an obvious reason:

Your word is 'condescending.'

"Can you use it in a sentence?"

Of course I can. Can YOU?


Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
