We had another terrific night of Trivia on Thursday night, our twenty-second edition of Facebook Live Trivia Night. Yes, we have now been doing Trivia on Facebook for an amazing five months! And I think I made a couple of categories a little on the harder side, but I promise you it won't be as difficult next week!
