Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
During a conference, I was pleasantly surprised to be seated next to a very

Looking startled for a moment, he flipped the napkin over and drew another # sign,

Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
 “Wax on, wax off”

Answer:  The Karate Kid!
Daniel and his mother move from New Jersey to California where the dark-haired, Italian boy who ‘tawks funny’ does not fit in with the blonde surfer crowd. He starts being bullied by some kids from a karate school and, after one particularly bad fight, he starts to pass out when an old handyman leaps in. Miyagi, who also happens to be a martial arts master, agrees to teach Daniel karate but has him painting fences and waxing his car (hence the quote). While Daniel doesn’t see how this is helping, he finally understands that these chores were strengthening his ‘karate muscles’ making it easier to learn. Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita star in “The Karate Kid” from 1984.
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Dead or alive you’re coming with me.”
Tuesday’s Quizzler is….​
My rings tell such a story

Of years past with gracious glory
Where I live is where I stay
From that spot I cannot stray
From my home man taketh me
So they can erect another home, you see
Many others bore into my sides
These things that crawl and things that glide
I weep with beauty or stand with grace
Every year I shed myself to nourish my place
What am I?

Answer: I am a tree. My rings are produced every year, just one, and how large it is tells a story of how that particular year was. Where I grow is where I stay, as I cannot pick up and move. Men cut me down to make their own homes, and creatures such as birds and squirrels live in me. When I shed my leaves they put nutrients into the ground which keep it fertile.
