Another weekend, and new puzzles to ponder.
Aren't you lucky.

But before we begin, I must admit that I am an avid viewer of the television game show Jeopardy, and I also play along as I watch. But within one game this past week, I was totally surprised that none of the contestants even attempted a response to the last clue ($2000) in the Double Jeopardy round category: Before and After.
Basically, "Feegle and Bingo's grammatical error" is a Banana Splits Infinitive.
Am I the only one to remember that Hanna-Barbera group from the late 1960's?
Anyway, on with our games...

What television program was the first to accurately predict Ronald Reagan as President of the United States and the Fall of the Berlin Wall?

The same four letters can be arranged to form the answers for all of the following clues.
1. Chooses
2. Stain
3. Lids
4. Mail
5. Cookware
6. HALT!

The answers will appear at the end of next week's Puzzle Corner.
But now, here are the results of November 29th.

Okay, I tried to be a bit sneaky with this one. In honor of Noel Neill's recent birthday, every lady listed have all portrayed Lois Lane.
Group 1 were the more recent TV actresses. Teri Hatcher had the role on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman while Erica Durance is currently the Daily Planet reporter on Smallville.
But Group 2 was trickier. While Ms. Neill was the first actress to appear visually as Lois in the 1948 Superman theatrical serial, these ladies were the first within their respective mediums. Rollie Bester originated the role vocally for the 1940's radio drama The Adventures of Superman, although others have followed her since, mostly in animation. Meanwhile Patricia Marand was the first to portray Ms. Lane on Broadway in the 1966 musical It's a bird, It's a plane, It's Superman!

Pictured were images to invoke the phrase: Bedtime Fairy Tales.
