    Once again only three of you even bothered to send in a response.[face_shame_on_you] At least guess if you don't know for certain!

    Onoto, Ceilliean, and Mister_Master all answered correctly with Daniel Radcliffe=D= [:D]

    In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated Dan's earnings for the year at $15 million....wonder if I could adopt him?[face_thinking]
    Anyway, Dan scared the make-up department crew when he once came on set with bloodied sticking plasters on his face claiming that he had been fighting the previous day.
    He's known for being a bit of a prankster and I really like this one! He once took co-star Robbie Coltrane's cellular phone and changed it so all the messages were in Turkish.


    The standings are:

    1. Gunny 43
    2. Onoto 276
    3. Ceillean 275
    4. M_M 255
    5. SWBob 38.9301


    I have a feeling we are going to see a winner soon. Show me your bets!

    Hey guys - sorry I went missing. Something (not fun) came up and I was in the hospital for about 36 hours. I'm on the mend now but will not be able to post the question tonight. I'm so tired that I'd probably make a mess of it.[face_tired]

    Okay, so be watching for it tomorrow and again, I'm really sorry.
    [:D]

    Hey - you guya have been wonderful to be so patient. This is something that just does not happen to me - ever. I guess that's why it's been so hard for me to cope, I'm used to taking care of others, not needing to be cared for.

    I've had to be back in the hospital again and my mom refused to bring my computer up. She said I couldn't stay awake long enough to use my phone and that I needed rest.[face_plain] I don't know what I would have done without her, she's cared for me and my daughter for days now without a break.

    So, let me see if my strength will hold out and I will post that question. Again, I feel awful and I am so angry this happened. The only thing I am thankful for is that it was not something my child could catch, her body could not have fought this. Don't let anyone ever tell you that salmonella is no big deal. It's miserable.[face_tired]

    That's what you get for eating bad fish! Do you know where salmon has been?![face_shame_on_you]

    But seriously, I am sad for you.:( Get better, snoogly-woogly!:*

    I'm bacckkkkkk!![:D]

    Here it is folks!! This one could mean a win for Onoto if he can answer correctly!

    Name the actor who is well-known for his appearance in advertisements for Colt 45. I'll even give you a little hint - his middle name is December.

    PM the answer by 12:00 noon Tuesday board time.

    Good luck!![face_good_luck] [:D]

    No need to drag this one out!! The winner for this round is the one and only ONOTO!!!

    =D= :* [:D]

    Well played! He was really quick to respond with the answer to the last question and that puts him over the top in points.

    That last answer is indeed Billy Dee Williams. He was heavily criticized for making a beer commercial at the time but it didn't bother him a bit.
    Look him up on Wiki if you want to see what he had to say to his critics. :D
    That smooth "Lando" voice of his turns my knees to jello everytime I hear it. [face_blush]

    Thanks to everyone for playing and again, I am sorry to have gone MIA in the middle of the action. I'm bouncing back though and we shouldn't have anything screw up the next round!!

    Sign ups start NOW! GO!
