    I got Moonlight and I knew there was another "something-light" movie, but all I could come up with was Searchlight.

    Yes, plus you missed being asked to identify a picture of Jack Nicklaus, where the clue even mentioned his famous nickname, the Golden Bear. I think they must have dumbed down the clues to avoid the usual sports category embarrassment.

    Hooray for the saxophone! My son has been playing it for the last 3 years, so I knew it was a recently invented instrument. One of the advantages of it being a newer instrument is that it's relatively easy to learn the fingering for the notes. Admittedly, I did think of Sousa first, but he definitely wasn't French.

    I never read the book, but the movie of The Natural with Robert Redford is very good. And Redford was gorgeous. (It was an instaget for me.) I realized who Barton reminds me of - Gilbert Gottfried.

    FJ was one of those where the answer jumped into my brain instantly, but I wasn't sure so I tried to come up with something else. But I couldn't think of anything else. So Maginot Line it was. I'm sorry you didn't win again, Elaine/Stavia, but at least that Evan guy didn't win. He was driving me crazy with his slow picking. I'm happy that Brandon will have money to fund his travel and study of religion. I was afraid he had jinxed himself when he said what he wanted to win the money for.

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    Now I remember why people didn't like Matt. It's the flat serial killer eyes. He's a very dominating player, though. I like both him and Ken - another dominating player with a flat affect (at least when he's playing). On the other hand, I also like Buzzy, so there's no accounting for taste. FJ was an instaget tonight, but I missed the same TS's they did.

    I remember Ryan's Hope. Being from Rochester, NY, I did think of Susie B. first for FJ, but then got Red Emma. She has Rochester connections, too.

    I was the same. I got Somalia, but then I was sunk. And yeah, the pianist was killing me. Worse than the actors in that Geico commercial with the slow talking soap opera actors. I also got propofol. I think it was involved with Prince's death as well as Michael Jackson. Or was it fentanyl? Bad stuff, either way.

    I'll join you all in the Austin hate, but I like Buzzy. I think he's actually funny, in an awkwardly endearing way. Unlike Austin, who only thinks he's funny. Also, have they given up dinging people for not saying "What is?" Colby did it right off the bat and I was sure they would call him out on it, but nope.

    Elementary Cast & Crew's Other Projects

    I just watched Widows with Viola Davis and Michelle Rodriguez and was happily surprised to see Jon Michael Hill as charismatic, influential and somewhat slimy preacher. He only had a couple of scenes, but he was definitely a highlight.

    I'm coming down with something and had a fever last night, but I still managed to get mock apple pie and dredged Sweden up out of the depths. It's a long country and extends further south than you might think. Oh, also Checkers. I thought the clue for that one was oddly worded.

    I did get lice. (LOL) Also the Pony Express which seemed like a surprising stumper. The Iditarod? Really? I also ran the sci-fi category and was sad to see both Pern and The Kindred missed. We have a local "If Everybody Read the Same Book" program and The Kindred was the choice a few years ago. Last year was The Distance Between Us, which was very good also. This year is American War by Omar El Akkad. I haven't read it yet, but I plan to.

    Why is snow white? - https://science.howstuffworks.com/nature/climate-weather/atmospheric/question524.htm From the article - "Snow is a whole bunch of individual ice crystals arranged together. When a light photon enters a layer of snow, it goes through an ice crystal on the top, which changes its direction slightly and sends it on to a new ice crystal, which does the same thing. Basically, all the crystals bounce the light all around so that it comes right back out of the snow pile. It does the same thing to all the different light frequencies, so all colors of light are bounced back out. The "color" of all the frequencies in the visible spectrum combined in equal measure is white, so this is the color we see in snow, while it's not the color we see in the individual ice crystals that form snow." When the ice crystals turn into water, all that fancy light bouncing off crystals stuff stops.

    That's how I got to her, too. I briefly considered Whitney Houston, but I was pretty sure she wasn't from New York. For state foods, I pre-guessed New York's apple.
