Good Saturday morning, Wayne. Have a great and a very special weekend.

Chef Dolores and I learned a new word.

A malapropism is the use of an incorrect word in place of a word with a similar sound, resulting in a nonsensical, sometimes humorous utterance. An example is the statement by baseball player Yogi Berra, "Texas has a lot of electrical votes", rather than "electoral votes". Wikipedia

Hi Wayne,  Thanks for these great trivia questions.  For yesterday I had numbers 1-3 correct, but didn't know #4.  Looking at today's questions  - not sure, but I think I can make 2 with some good guessing.

Hi Wayne:
