Last Night's Dinner

I think we finally fixed the problem with my alison.trynosky blogger account so here goes nothing for my first official post.

Here at the Bridgewater Trynosky homestead we eat dinner around 7p and since we have a small TV on the kitchen counter we spends most meals with Jeopardy on in the background.  When the category for Final Jeopardy is given James' typical comment is "All in Alex" unless of course the category is something like interpretive dance.  Last night however it was "All in Alex, Who is General MacArthur?"  I of course laughed because the chances of someone guessing the question correctly while only having the category name is absurd.
I don't know if anyone reading this post watched Jeopardy last night but for those of you who didn't here is the category and clue.
American Military Men:  "In April 1951 he told Congress, "In war there can be no substitute for victory."  (For the correct response please refer to James)
The triumphant cheer that was cried out after that popped up on the screen almost knocked me out of my chair.  James is adamant that he has done this before, guessed the response after the category was announced, but since neither of us could remember any of the details I have decided to catalog it in our little piece of the blogosphere.  Plus James doesn't like to boast about his accomplishments, however minor, so I have decided to take on this particular duty (along with the joyous task of talking about our children) in an effort to help get this blog up and running again.
