    I got it right.

    because I cheated, but nothing said I couldn't.

      Whew! I was a-scared for a minute there.

      I drive through there fairly often, and I was born in KY, but the REAL question is:

      how do you pronounce it?

        Speaking of KY...

        Did you hear about the elderly gentleman who was in the hospital for a couple days for some prostrate surgery... and his doctor happened to stop by one morning just after breakfast.

        "...And how's the food around here, Mr. Jones?" the doctor asked, trying to make a little conversation.

        "Just had the WORST piece of toast I've ever ate. I put some of that Kentucky Jelly on it and it was awful!"

        "Oh really? I'm sorry to hear that," sympathized the doctor, "but I've never heard of Kentucky Jelly before..."

        "Well, there it is, ya darn fool, right next to my breakfast tray... Can't you read the label? It says 'KY Jelly'!"

        (OK... you can stop groaning now!)

          If you still don't know the correct spelling, check back this afternoon. The correct spelling will be posted.

            Okay, here it is! 63.64% of you said the proper spelling for the capital of Kentucky was "Louisville". 36.36% of you said it was "none of the above". Conclusion: Most of you don't (didn't) know how to spell the capital of Kentucky, which of course is Frankfort! Thanks for playing.

                That was a good one. I'm using the excuse that I'm an Australian. But what's everybody else's excuse?

                  I looked it up. It was never stated that we couldn't. I don't know all the state capitals. Not sure I even know all the states. But I have a computer, and the Internet, and I can find out in seconds. Viva Technology!

                    Does beer qualify as an excuse? I think I zoomed right past the word "capital" and just thought..."everyone knows how to spell Louisville"! The next day (after a cup of coffee) I realized my error. Give us another Ed! ...my ego is bruised

                      I did almost the same thing as Greg, I didn't read the question carefully! I'm blaming this one on lack of sleep.

                              ah yesss... PFK ... Poulet Frit Kentucky as we call it here.. (from another thread)

                              I too fell right into that one Ed. My excuse is I know all the states, can find them on an unmarked map, and know "most" of the capitols I think that's pretty good considering I'm not a citizen.

                              besides.. Ed tricked us.. not fair!

                                While I'm not in any danger with existing fires, having been near enough to one two years ago to pack my car with irreplacables (i.e., photos and computer), the wild fires raging in CO right now have me on edge.

                                The latest news on the fire near Denver is that it's 10 miles from the SW...

                                Are there any home coffee roasters here? I just started getting into this a few months ago and it's a fun and rewarding hobby,, not to mention the best tasting coffee you ever had!!

                                Hi Folks,

                                As common as carpal tunnel syndrome is, I expect there are some of you bothered by it. I've had it for a few years, and there have been times at night when it really got bad. But if I watch the type of work I'm doing, it isn't that bad. The wrist supports help, but if I do the...

                                Here's an interesting one!

                                Have to admit that I'm not qualified for determining fakes when the print is on the screen and not in my hand unless it was done by a "less than qualified" graphic artist! I only got 7 of these right. ...

In less than three pages I have to define and explain feminism. It could get me a thousand bucks. So Ladies... and guys too I guess, "What does Feminism mean to you?" Obviously I...
