I envision a group of 10 friends meeting up for breakfast on a Saturday morning at their favorite coffee joint. Over coffee, draw for their cards and divide into teams of two. Decide on what time the game is over and a place to meet and compare Bingo to declare the winners. Then all take off in teams, one team per car. Each team would get a win for the most Bingos (ugliest taxidermy bonus is the tie-breaker), and individual wins would be decided by each player by awarding their trinket to who they think won. Everyone would pitch in to buy the winning team lunch or a drink.

When I started working on my family tree one of the favorite documents I was given was in a file my mom had. Apparently (I don’t exactly remember) my brother or myself had a family tree assignment and both sides of the family wrote some information down for the tree. The story of how my

I’m not all that claustrophobic but the idea of squeezing my body through a tight space in a dark cave gives me the eebie-jeebies. What if I get
