(Shenandoah) – What? Is it Sunday already? You mean it’s time to do another blog?
For a while I thought I’d blow it for this Sunday. After all, it’s been a busy week of newsgathering here at KMA. And, this week is going to be a doosy, with a number of things going on in the community – including zone meetings, the traditional Wabash arts camp and, of course, the Shenandoah ShenDig BBQ competition (I my mouth is watering at the thought of this an event).
Yes, it would be easy not to do one this weekend. At the same time, I started this blog over four years ago to give kmaland.com an extra Sunday feature – besides the always interesting highlight “Geography with Goudge”. (By the way, I understand that Dr. Goudge has a biggee scheduled for next week. Next Sunday’s article is titled “States With Most Unvaccinated Baseball Players”. Next Sunday’s story is “Most Unvaccinated States”. visited by Billie Eillish”.
Also, I feel like I have a responsibility to my readers – you four. So if I have to do a blog this Sunday, let’s keep it simple. And, that only means one thing: unnecessary triva time!
Yes, it’s time to think (think, don’t bother), because I’m asking you multiple choice questions and you have to find the best answer.
