April 15th…..Tax Day in America

1.  In Drums Of Autumn, at a dinner party the discussion of taxes comes up…….What is the current rate of taxes in North Carolina in 1767?

Page said it best.......
It’s a whopping 2%, or something like that! If ye ever needed another reason to go through the Stones, this is it!
Answer: About 2%   Drums page 107

2.  What's the current sales tax in M&M's state of Indiana and Scotty's state of California?  (Sorry…..couldn’t find another tax question in the books! *g*)

Well this question pissed the most of you off!  Seems like tax questions at tax time aren't too welcome! *g* Somehow M&M's feet got into the answers twice for this question, no one mentioned Scottys feet they must smell from being in cowboy boots all the time....hey try some Reeboks! *g*

Lady Elaine: Well, it must be pretty high in M&M's state, since they probably have to subsidize her psychological treatment and toe polish, so I'll guess 15%.

ErinO: I don't know, but M&M your feet are verra cute, will that get me a point?

Hedy had her own tax theory.......

M&M’s sales tax rate is 1% and Scotty’s is 25%. M&M’s is low because so many people live in Indiana and defray the rate, whereas all the People in Scotty’s home state are leaving and have to pay a 25% departure tax on their way out of CA - floods, fires,earthquakes, and worst of all, Hollywoood! *gasp* RUN! RUN! RUN!

Answer: South Bend, Indiana 5%,Redding, California-7.25%

April Showers bring May Flowers……

3.  Without knowing that the other had both Jamie and Claire put flowers on Faith's resting place.  Can you name the type of flower each put on the grave?

Most of the wrong answers were roses by both.
Answer:Jamie-violets,Claire-pink tulip     DOA page 740

4.  While in Jamaica Jamie and Claire stayed at the Abernathy's, after what flower was their house named?

 Some of you found a wee trivia error here....J&C didn't stay over night at the Abernathys but were there for a wee visit, or maybe just to take a wee-wee.....anyway....the answer is .....
 Answer: Rose Hall Voyager page900

5.  Jamie describes to Claire what the following symbolize on a strawberry plant…….but can you?
White flower-
Red fruit-
Green leaves-
What shape does Jamie use to describe the strawberry?

Och Aye....the most common wrong answer you ask.......the shape used to describe a strawberry!  You know good thing Claire doesn't exist and knows where you live!

Denise: Claire's butt
Eilidh: Claire's arse
TamaraC: Claire's fine fat arse.
Lady Patricia: My first thought was Claire's wide arse.
LaurieE: Claire's FWA.
SandyM: Claires FWA

Answers: White flower is for honor.  The red fruit is for courage.  The green leaves are for constancy. The shape is heart.  DOA page 315

6.  Finish this poem……
 Roses are red, Violets are blue.
(Your turn!)

 These answers are by the scores down at the bottom of the page.

April Fools Day

A.) Jamie himself.
B.) The Kings mum
C.) The Duc de Neve
D.) The Earl Marischal
E.)  Mr. MacWhipple

Just ask Sheree it was.....The Duc de Neve (who would later be known as The Duc de Nerve)

or ask Gwen.....The Duc de Neve - also known as Bumwipe Bob.

Aislinn got the answer by the powers of reduction....


Answer: C-The Duc de Neve

8.  What is Jamie referring to when he states that someone is as "tight as an owl'?

Just ask Merc.....Constowlpated.
Answer: "Tight as an owl" means someone is constipated.DIA page 142

9.  Who put owl pellets down Jamie's shirt and then ran like the wind?

Page: I paid someone to do this so I could then help him off wi’ his shirt and bathe him!
  Answer: Ian Sr.  was the culprit that  put pellets down Jamie shirt. DIA page 142

10.  Who would you consider to be the biggest fool in "the books" and why ?
 Of course we want this in rhyme!!

We are so sorry we can't post,
who everyone picked the most?

It's seems there isn't that much space on this site,
to list the rhymes of the fool who wasn't so bright.

Och aye! it's simple you see,
of course most everyone picked Laoghaire.

For the main reason I bet you know that too,
because it wasn't Jamie she wanted to screw!

April in Paris

11. When Jamie dueled for Annalise with Charles Gauloise in Paris, what was the weapon of choice?
Shadow thought that the whole scene should of been done with fish......

Swords, although a fish fight would have been more amusing.

"You have offended my honor sir!" says M. Gauloise, swinging a trout roundly at Jamie's head.

"Och, ye filthy arsewipe! Ye near gave me a haddock. Take that then!" replied Jamie, ducking quickly and lashing back with a tuna. M. Gauloise floundered as the fish caught him squarely in the chin. With swanlike grace he sank to the ground, senses swimming.

A piercing female cry split the air.

"Mon chere!"

Annalise ran to her fallen lover. He was limp as seaweed as she fussed and fretted over him. Jamie looked at the couple entwined on the ground and knew he had lobster forever.
Answer: Charles chose swords……smallswords. DIA page 203

 12.  Claire had told Jamie that Master Raymond had done the nipple piercing for King Louis mistress and went on to ask if she should make an appointment. Jamie then told Claire that if she so much as spoke to Master Raymond, he would pierce her nipples himself. How did he propose to do this?

Almost everyone got this one right including.....WendyM whose entire trivia was done in rhyme.

Lucky Claire
The silly mite
Cuz Jamie'd pierce em
Wi a bite !!

But most thought this nipple piercing with Jamie's teeth was a good thing!

Lady Jay: With his teeth! Ouch! Hmmm, sounds painful, yet strangely enticing!

 Answer:  ......... with his teeth.   DIA page 171

 13.  When King Louis arrived at the Ball at Versailles, he was wearing a velvet coat. What was embroidered all over this coat?

JennyB: "I am the king and you're not, neener neener"

Big & bold
For all to see
Was stitched the words

Answer: Butterflies DIA,page 169

 14. What was Prince Charles doing up on the rooftop in the middle of the night with a monkey bite on his hand?

Charyl: Obviously he was monkeying around with someone else's wife. The guy couldn't keep his banana in the peel. *groan*

Shadow: .......(Yeah right.....we know what he was REALLY doing with a monkey and it isn't pretty....or legal for that matter, unless you are in West Virginia and the monkey weighs less than 40 lbs.)
Answer:  He had been to see his mistress and they got into a fight and her pet monkey bit him. He could not exit by the normal means as his mistress's husband was just outside the bedroom in the anteroom drinking brandy so he took to the rooftops to get out.  DIA  page 215

15.  What was the name that Jamie had wanted to call their first child?

Hats off to anyone who remembered this, which was quite a few of you....and we took any spelling of Dalhousie that you came up with!
Answer: "Dalhousie".  DIA, page 211

True or False…
Which statements are True and which are False about Jamie and Scotty.

The most common answer to this was......Who's Scotty? *g* For the answer to that....go here Scottys Patron Page .

1) They are both Scottish. True
Aye, my Da was born in a wee burgh called Hawick in Roxburghshire.

2) They both consider their backyard a lumberyard. True
Just outside the window here in Whitimore is a forest of tall trees all suitable for milling  into lumber.

3)  They both have to have a mountain to live. True
Another true question. Jamie had Frasers Ridge for his mountain and I have Lassen mountain, although I think we both want to "mount" Claire!

4) Scotty and Jamie are both grandpas. True
Aye, Chad is 12 now.

5) They both like Haggis. True
My Mum used to make haggis a lot and although I liked it, my favorite was kidney dumplings.....a second close was potted meat.
(Sorry M&M has to interject here......Scotty that's just GROSS!)

6) Their wives have the same name. False
Och, the DW's name is Helen Ann from the mountains of West "By God" Virginia.

7) They both enjoy hunting. False
This one is surely false.  I went hunting once with an old German man and he killed seven rabbits and I found that bleeding dead animals was not for me.

8) They both built their own house. True
Aye.....a large A Frame in the middle of the forest, mostly from pine and cedar that I milled here on the property.

9) Neither has finished Drums of Autumn. True
Another true question. Even though I have two copies......I have not read DOA either "yet".

10) Scotty likes to wear his hair plaited too. False
It's a wee pony tail I have ye see to make up for the hair I lost on the top of my head!
