Yanowhiz - you got 13, 18, and 20 correct. See edited question 4 to get full credit. It was a typo. Sorry about that.

Scarlett - all 3 are right. Keep going! Doing good! (OMG! You said "yuck" on Hagar?! lol)

Are you not a Hagar fan at all or just not a Van Hagar fan? I loved what he did while he was with Van Halen but I'm a fan of his in general anyway. And I don't like DLR at all, lol.

PS - Hint: Think of the people in the list as something they did first. Not all of them, but a few. And the list of men on 15, here's a hint: What did all 3 presidential hopefuls have in common in 2000?

You got me, I'm not a big Van Halen fan. I like the music, but I know very little about the group/person.

Anywho I still can't think of anything for the one with richard simmons on number 15.

Thanks for clearing it up, Scarlett. Not that I'd like ya any less either way, just wasn't sure which you disliked. :thumbsup:

Yanowhiz -

4 is correct.
10 is correct.
7 is true but not what I'm looking for. These 2 people, in real life, have something in common.

14 refers to food allergy.

Thank Grandma for the help. Ask her to think hard about the people in the list. What could be significant about Adkins, Carr, or what they are 'famous' for? The answer to question 15 is also true of Bill Clinton, George Bush, Jay Leno, David Letterman, and countless others.

Good job, Scarlett!

5 and 14 are correct. On 15, pick one and I'll confirm. :thumbsup:
7 - think of 'family' and you might get it. But not married.


LOL YANOWHIZ! Omg, I just saw your reply. All liars, that's so funny! hehe!
See Scarlett's guesses. One is correct.
