TRIVIA QUESTION... NUMBER 2

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc. RES.0761759

Last week I posted a blog for fun that was a trivia question.  It seems a lot of ActiveRain members like the idea of mental stimulation.. so here we go again, round 2.

IN WHAT YEAR DID THESE THINGS HAPPEN.....

1)  Radio talk show host Larry King wed Julie alexander

2)  Time Inc. & Warner Communications announce plans for a merger forming Time-Warner

3) Wayne Gretzky becomes the all time leading pnits scorer in the NHL

and lastly

4) Don Henley (of the Eagles) released his album "The Last Worthless Evening"...

Any thoughts.. WITHOUT LOOKING THESE UP ON THE INTERNET...

LET ME KNOW IF YOU LIKE THESE TRIVIA QUESTIONS.  IF SO, I'LL TRY TO DO ONE A WEEK.

Teresa.. I'm glad you were able to partake this time before the answer was revealed.  I'm planning on letting everyone know this evening what year these events happened.

Debi... Do you like these trivia questions?  I was thinking of doing one a week, but I wanted to see what the consensus is?  Thanks for guessing the year, and I'll let you know what the answer is later today.  I want to give as many people a chance to respond as possible.

George.. What do you think of this *trivia* game?  Do you think I should do one, once a week?  I can make Tuesday Trivia Day.  I will let you know if you are right later today.

Richard.. What made you guess 1992?  Thank you for taking a shot, and I'll let you know, along with everyone else this evening what the answer is.  Would you like to see me post a trivia question once a week to test your memory?

Valerie,

Keep the trivia coming.  We can all use a little mental stimulation once in a while that isn't regular business.

Ted.. Thanks for the response.  That is the way I feel, but I wanted to see if it would be worth doing by finding out what other members here felt.

Debi.. Then maybe doing this on a regular basis might help all of us to stimulate our minds a little.  Your trying is better than not trying at all, right Debi?  My dad always said.. "You never know until you try."  This can be applied to alot of things in life.

As promised, I mentioned I would give the answer later on this evening.  I'm heading out the door, and wanted to let everyone know the answer.  Couldn't see you waiting until after midnight.

To Anita, George, Jane and Donna... my hat is off to the three of you.  You win the WTT (Weekly Tuesday Trivia) award.  The year that all these events happened was in the year 1989.

I inquired if the members here on ActiveRain thought this would be a good idea to have on a weekly basis.. and most said "YES".. so stay tuned to next week, for the next exciting round.

As a hint... I will ***NOT**** choose a year in the 1980's.

THANK YOU ALL FOR PARTICIPATING.

Valerie,

I got in late for this one.... I was thinking 1989 and lo and behold ... that's it.  But I only knew because of the Eagle's questions, the rest I wouldn't have a clue.

Debi.. Then stayed tuned next week (Tuesday) for the next Trivia question.  This could really be fun.  I wish I could partake, but I always know what the answer is.  LOL.

April, this is a fresh response actually.  Most knew the answer because of the *Wayne Gretzky* hint. You are the first for the Don Henley hint.  I thought for sure this would have given it away more... but what do I know?

Stay tuned or next week... there will be another trivia question.
