Trivia Question


This Week's Trivia Question:

Question: Where was Galileo born?

Last Week's Trivia Question:
Question: In what year was the Constitution of the United States ratified?
Answer:
1789. In 1787, the Articles of Confederation governed the United States. Because these laws were ineffective, a Constitutional Convention was called in Philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation. The delegates, however, did not revise the Articles of Confederation. Instead, they drafted a new document to govern the United States called the
Constitution of the United States. The Constitution of the United States was ratified in 1789. It was a new and revolutionary idea. The Constitution states the power to govern is derived from the people, rather than the states, and it is the supreme law of the land. Read a book about the Constitution.

Who's Your Hero?


"My brothers and sisters are my heroes. I grew up in a very big family, and I enjoyed the friendships of all my brothers and sisters. They really made it fun to be a kid, and even more fun to be an adult. And I get to be an auntie to so many great nieces and nephews."
-- Thanks, Barbara
