A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

We did long for the pitter-patter of little feet... so we bought a dog. Cheaper, and you get more feet.

Links here are good only for the week of July 17. After that... is anybody's guess.

Yes; we are a day late this week. The dog ate our homework again. He has a huge appetite.
(Sorry; that's still the best we've got.)

The Zipline Adventure

As kids, we had Disneyland, but we did not have the zipline. "Me Tarzan," was the closest we came to the zipline adventure. Oh, what we had in store for ourselves 40 years down the road!

Required equipment for the zipline adventure includes thick gloves, a full body harness, helmet, and appropriate footwear – gear Tarzan would not have been caught dead wearing. As I understand it, after signing a waiver indicating that whatever may go wrong is all your fault, you stand at the edge of a platform mounted near the top of a large tree over a deep gorge in the forest. They strap you tightly into the harness, attach one of end of a metal clip to the harness, the other to a long, thick wire stretched across the entire gorge, and shove you off the edge of the platform. From there, you’re on your own. And, if you manage to survive, they do it to you another ten times! What the heck was I thinking?

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


1. First, our current events question: The governor and legislature of Nevada is considering emergency legislation to address the shortage of marijuana.

      Fake News! Fake News! Fake News!
      Nope; it's true. Truth is stranger than fiction.


2.
   

Yes, this is a DeLorean. Named after the creator of the innovative car, Dee Lorean.

OK, that was not his name; his last name was DeLorean. What was his first name? (Don't look it up!)



3. We're going to focus on girls' names here in the trivia section... until... until we run out of girls. We have binders full of them.
This comes from a song written by Van Morrison in 1964. But that won't help you much. The Shadows of Knight made it a top-10 hit in 1966. That may not help you, either. The Doors recorded it, too.

    Yeah, she comes around here;
    Just about midnight.
    Makes me feel so good;
    Makes me feel alright.
    Walkin' down my street;
    Comes up to my house;
    She knocks upon me door;
    Makes me feel alright.
    Her name is _________


Who's the girl?    



(We are close to running out of girls. Some of you have helped us along. Thanks much. Can you think of any names we have missed? Click reply; help keep this going.)
