2/5, no *

However, I am in contention for the Close, But No Cigar Award, as I got the first name of 142, 2 out of 3 of the countries in 144, and I went back and forth between two Presidents and chose the wrong one in 145.

Even though I watched All in the Family from the start, I couldn't get Archie Bunker's Place out of my mind until the last second.

Still waiting for @Sharpie66 to report in (Hope you are okay) but this week's co-winners have been chosen. Congrats to astral twins @biakbiak and @PBnJay who have mirrored each other in totals for the last four weeks. Congrats to you both. May you have many more nice weeks.

Oh, my, thank you Saber5055. This award makes up for not getting a call from Jeopardy saying I passed the test!

Canada also cheated you out of winning this week. So there's that, too.

Hey @Sharpie66, don't forget to report in! It's been two-weeks and Mom gets worried about her players when they disappear. *cough @Toothbrush cough*

Meanwhile, the co-winners of Week 30 have been named. TA DAH! Because I like patterns and sequences (and sequins, but I digress), @illdoc and @suebee12 are this week's co-winners with their matching reflective scores of four straight 3s. It's like you guys are copying off of each other's papers. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Congratulations to you both! Long may you rock the contest.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! And I promise I didn't look at @illdoc's answers!

It looks more like zoey1996 & I are collaborating--overall, we have the same number of * and nearly identical scores (she has one more right than me)!

WEEK 31 • April 6 • College Week — NO asterisk
151. Wonders of the Modern World. Nicknamed “The Big Ditch”, in 2014 this modern wonder celebrated its 100th anniversary.
152. American History. A 1711 bill cleared the names of 22 people who were tried in this town, including Rebecca Nurse, Giles Corey & John Proctor.
153. American Authors. She published under her middle name; her first name was Nelle, Ellen backward in honor of her grandmother Ellen Finch.
154. European Borders. Barely changed since a 1297 agreement, the border between these 2 countries is called La Raya on one side & A Raia on the other.
155. Words In The News. On September 25, 2019, searches on merriam-webster.com for the definition of this 3-word Latin term increased by 5,500%.
