Trivia -
No winner for last week's trivia question. :( The question was: In Stargate SG-1, Richard Dean Anderson played Jack O'Neill to Don S. Davis' George Hammond. But they have an earlier TV connection. The answer is 3 parts: what is the earlier show? What was Richard Dean Anderson's role in it? and What 3 roles ("roles") did Don S. Davis have in it? The correct answer was: The tv show was MacGyver in which Richard Dean Anderson played MacGyver. Don S. Davis had 2 guest spots as a cement truck driver & Wyatt Porter. His primary role, however, was as the stunt double for Dana Eclar who played Pete Thornton.

~We're changing things up a bit for Trivia. Over the next 6 weeks, we'll ask a trivia question each week.
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
~If you don't get a confirmation of your response within 24 hours, resend it because you know how technology can be sometimes.
~The deadline to answer each week's question will be Wednesday at 12:00noon (central time).
~Everyone that submits the correct answer each week will receive one entry into the prize drawing (so you have the potential to have six entries in the drawing).
~On December 26th, we'll choose the winner (or depending on how many entries we have, winners) and announce them and their prize on the podcast.
~This week's question: Name the movie the following quote comes from and who said it to whom: "You're the weak one. And you'll never know love, or friendship. And I feel sorry for you."
