Trivia Q&A: May 21

Our seventh edition of "Facebook Live Trivia Night" was another successful one, as we had about 30 people (and perhaps more at its height) tuned in to play Trivia. It was another night of triumph for Gillian, Joe and the rest of their gang (one of my oldest and loyalest Trivia teams from back in the early 2010s) who got their second win, getting 51 points. Congrats to them on their triumph with the team name "HydroxychloriKWEENS." (That might have won a a Best Team Name back in the old days of Trivia!) Francine Hamilton was second with 50 points and Team COVID Obesity with third with 48 points.
