Family Television Night: Jeopardy

Contribution by German Flowers

After moving to America I have found one of the greatest shows on earth is Jeopardy. Hosted by Alex Trebeck, this show has been in the American conscious for years but being from India it was new to me. It's an amazing trivia show that always makes people use their brains to figure out the answers to questions on a variety of subjects. My family always watches Jeopardy on our satellite TV Indian channels during the weekends.

Jeopardy features questions on some of the most fascinating subjects. It is a great family show to watch, because typically every person will know the answers to a particular set of questions. It is hilarious to see some of my kids know that answers to pop culture questions, while my husband and I excel at the questions surrounding American history. For example, one time my kids knew the entire lyrics to pop culture songs by artists like P. Diddy and Rihanna, while my husband and I were naming the laws passed in America during the year 2000. We were cracking up to see how all of us ended up with the same score, even though our areas of knowledge were very obviously different!

It is so much fun to plan one night of the week to come together as a family and watch Jeopardy. There is nothing much sweeter in life than watching an educational program together that is actually entertaining and thrilling to watch and participate in!

It's Game Time!

I haven't posted anything lately and I got tied up at work. Everything is pretty hectic at work and I haven't blogging for a while. This time, I am going to share some photos on what we did during the Baby Shower party. The venue was held at Jamestown Campground. We had a lot of fun, lots of food to eat and fun games that we enjoyed so much.

The photo above was one of the games we played. It is called Find the Safety Pins. The materials needed are large bowl, long grain rice, safety pins (small or medium) and blindfold. What I did was to fill the bowl with rice and put about 50 safety pins. Each participant from the baby shower was blindfolded for 1 minute and let the participant feel around in the bowl to see how many safety pins they can get. You would not believe how hard it is to tell the difference of the safety pin and the rice.

The photo above was a fun game. This baby shower game gets everyone laughing! The materials are baby bottles with Milk or any alternate drink. We used sprite and coke. Each participant took a bottle filled with a liquid and suck the bottle as a baby would. The woman who drinks the most in an allotted time wins the baby shower gift. The mistake we did for this game was, we used pop as the alternate drink. The participants complained that it wasn't a good idea. So next time, we will use milk or juice. We all had fun!

Make it Safe!

We can do lot of things over the internet. We can watch videos, download music, and search the web pages, social networking and even play games. Indeed, the internet has evolved throughout the years. It has serves us many things since it all started. For me, life without internet will be boring. For some people who cannot let the day passed without getting on the internet is somewhat addicted to everything over the internet. Hackers and viruses are everywhere too! That's why; I make sure that I have installed my Antivirus and Antispam to defend my computer to any worms wanting to destroy my computer.

It will cost us a fortune if we don't know how to take care of our computers. We have saved important documents, wonderful photos that will last for years and we don't want anything bad will happen and crashed all the files we have saved. We should know that Network Security Software is a helpful tool to protect the network. It provides security on the latest findings on global internet threats and attacks. We should always find a solution to a problem. Don't let anything bad happen to your own computer and regret it. Take care of your things.

People are surprised by your knowledge of the world,

or speaking a second language is a big deal.

You are open to anything in this world.
The extraordinary is pretty ordinary for you at this point.
