"Doctor Zhivago" is an epic novel by Boris Pasternak first published in 1957.

Nene is a bird native to Hawaii, also known as the Hawaiian goose. The name "nene" is an imitation of his name. When Captain Cook landed on the islands in 1778, there were 25,000 Nene living there. In 1950, the number was reduced by hunting to only 30 birds. Conservation efforts in recent years have been somewhat successful. Nene was named Hawaii's state bird in 1957.

If you are visiting the island of Maui, a trip to Haleakala National Park is a must. Part of the park has the spectacular Haleakala Crater, where you'd swear you were on the moon. Another part of the park is the Kipahulu section, which contains very scenic pools accessed via the road to Hana. When we visited (many years ago), the road to Hana was a bit undeveloped and the car rental companies wouldn't let you drive their cars there. Interestingly, the only cars you would encounter on the road to Hana were rental cars…


2 Some sound equipment on stage: AMPLIFIERS

Concert amplifiers often use vacuum tubes (also known as valves) instead of modern solid state transistors.

Soldiers were sent in and used machine guns in an unsuccessful attempt to dislodge the "attack forces". The emus were smart, breaking their usual formations and adopting guerilla tactics, operating as smaller units. After 50 days of "war", the army retreated. Subsequent requests for military aid to farmers were ignored. Emus won out…

Rhett's rival for Scarlet's affections is Ashley Wilkes, who lives at the nearby Twelve Oaks Plantation.

The word "ape" comes in English from the Old French "apeter", which means "to entice" or "to torment the dogs" (literally "to cause to bite").

40 One of the great lakes: ERIE

Lake Erie is the fourth largest of the five Great Lakes by surface area (Lake Ontario is the smallest). The lake was named after the Erie Indian tribe that lived along its southern shore. Erie is the smallest of the Great Lakes by volume and the shallowest, something nearby residents are very grateful for. Because the Erie is relatively shallow, much of the Erie partially freezes during most winters, terminating most of the lake-effect snow that falls in the snow belt that extends from the lake's edge.

Some Muslim women wear the hijab in the presence of men outside their immediate family. Hijab is a veil that covers the head and chest. Some also use the niqab as part of the hijab, which is a cloth that covers the face. Other Muslim women wear a burqa that covers the entire body from the top of the head to the ground.

50 Actress Thurman from "Pulp Fiction" : UMA

Uma Thurman started her working career as a model at the age of 15. She appeared in her first films at 17, and her most acclaimed early role was as Cécile de Volanges in 1988's Dangerous Liaisons. Thurman's career really took off when she played mobster Mullah Mia in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction in 1994. My favorite of all Thurman's films is The Truth About Cats & Dogs, a lesser-known romcom released in 1996. She took a few years off from play. from 1998 to 2002 after the birth of her first child. It was Tarantino who relaunched her career and gave her the lead role in the "Kill Bill" films.

I'm not a big fan of director Quentin Tarantino or his work. His movies are too violent for me and the size of his ego just turns me off. That being said, I think "Pulp Fiction" is an excellent movie. If you can look past the violence, it's really well written. And what a legacy he has. John Travolta's career was at its peak and he shot the film with practically no money and it turned out to be his relaunch. Uma Thurman became a top celebrity overnight from her role. Even Bruce Willis got some good out of it, breaking a string of poorly received performances.

51 Louisiana style of cuisine: CAJUN

Cajun cuisine is named after the French-speaking Acadians who were deported from Acadia, Canada to Louisiana in the 18th century.

55 Personal appearance : MIEN

One's appearance is one's behavior or behavior. "Mien" has the same etymological root as our word "behaviour".

56 Land unit: AKR

A morning was once defined as the amount of land that a yoke of oxen could plow in a day. Then an acre was more precisely defined as a strip of land "a furrow long" (ie, a furrow long) and a chain wide. The length of a step was equal to 10 chains or 40 rods. The area of ​​a track multiplied by 10 rods was a road.

57 "___ Wretches": THE

The musical "Les Misérables" from 1980 is an adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel of the same name from 1862. The play opened in London in 1985 and is the longest-running musical in the history of London's West End. My wife and I saw "Les Miz" at the Queen's Theater in London many years ago, but were only able to get back row tickets. The theater seats are very steep, so the last row of the balcony is extremely high above the stage. One of the major events in the story is the construction of a street barricade around which the rebels fight. At the height where we sat, we could see the stage workers behind the barricade, sitting and drinking Coke, even smoking cigarettes. At a signal, the stagehands rose and caught a dropped gun or a shot actor. It was quite comical. I didn't enjoy the show that much, to be honest. Some good songs, but the musical version of the story just didn't seem to fit together for me.

61 The cable channel that launched with the words "Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll" : MTV

The first video was played at the launch of MTV Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" (I love that song), followed by Pat Benatar singing "You Better Run".

62 San Francisco/Oakland Divider: BAY
