Mo Hawg - Week 39


Day 1.

      Mo’s Wonderful Thing About Getting Older for Today: No more high heels.

   Mo can remember Great-great-great Grandpa Mo saying that he only had an eighth grade education.  Recently, Mo found a copy of Grandpa Mo’s final eighth grade test…and it’s a real test from 1895.  See if you can answer the questions!

  More of the Miscellaneous section of the test today:

1.      Define the following prefixes and use in connection with a word: bi, dis, mis, pre, semi, post, non, inter, mono, sup.

2.      Mark diacritically and divide into syllables the following, and name the sign that indicates the sound: card, ball, mercy, sir, odd, cell, rise, blood, fare, last.

  Oh my.  Mo is failing miserably

      Little Bubba’s Riddle for Today: How do you find a spider on the Internet?

   It’s easy…just look for his web site!

Day 2.

      Mo’s Wonderful Thing About Getting Older for Today: Your old car now seems “cool.”

   Mo can remember Great-great-great Grandpa Mo saying that he only had an eighth grade education.  Recently, Mo found a copy of Grandpa Mo’s final eighth grade test…and it’s a real test from 1895.  See if you can answer the questions!

   We’re doing the Miscellaneous section of the test and should finish that portion today.

3.      Use the following correctly in sentences: cite, site, sight, fane, fain, feign, vane, vain, vein, raze, raise, rays.

4.       Write ten words frequently mispronounced and indicate pronunciation by use of diacritical marks and by syllabication.

   Hurrah…at last, something Mo can do

   Mo’s Household Hint for Today: If you’re painting and the paint odor is bothering you…just mix two teaspoons pure vanilla extract per gallon of paint.  Odor gone! 

Day 3.

    Mo’s Wonderful Thing About Getting Older for Today: You’ve had all your shots.

   Mo can remember Great-great-great Grandpa Mo saying that he only had an eighth grade education.  Recently, Mo found a copy of Grandpa Mo’s final eighth grade test…and it’s a real test from 1895.  See if you can answer the questions!

   On to the Geography test!

  1. What is climate?  Upon what does climate depend?
  2. How do you account for the extremes of climate in Kansas?
  3. Of what use are rivers?  Of what use is the ocean?
  4. Describe the mountains in North America.

   Mmmm.  Mo did pretty well on this one.  How about you?

   Little Bubba’s Riddle for Today: Why was the computer so tired when it got home from the office? 

   Give up?  The computer was tired when it got home from the office because it had a hard drive.

   Oink?

Day 4.

      Mo’s Wonderful Thing About Getting Older for Today: You’re finished for good with homework.

   Little Bubba sent us a question.  Little Bubba wants to know, “What is the longest word in the world?"

   We give up.  What is the longest word in the world?

   Little Bubba says, “It’s ‘smiles’ because it’s a mile from one “s” to the other!”

   Mo can remember Great-great-great Grandpa Mo saying that he only had an eighth grade education.  Recently, Mo found a copy of Grandpa Mo’s final eighth grade test…and it’s a real test from 1895.  See if you can answer the questions!

   We’re working on the Geography section today.

  1. Name and describe the following: Monrovia, Odessa, Denver, Manitoba, Hecia, Yukon, St. Helena, Juan Fernandez, Aspinwall and Orinoco.
  2. Name and locate the principal trade centers of the United States.
  3. Name all the republics of Europe and give the capital of each.

Day 5.

      Mo’s Wonderful Thing About Getting Older for Today: There’s nothing left to learn the hard way.

   Mo can remember Great-great-great Grandpa Mo saying that he only had an eighth grade education.  Recently, Mo found a copy of Grandpa Mo’s final eighth grade test…and it’s a real test from 1895.  See if you can answer the questions!

   We’re working on the Geography portion of the test.

  1. Why is the Atlantic Coast colder than the Pacific in the same latitude?
  2. Describe the process by which the water of the ocean returns to the sources of rivers.
  3. Describe the movements of the earth.  Give the inclination of the earth.

   Remember this was an eighth grade test that took six hours to complete.  How did you do?  Does anyone have the answers to all of this?

   Mo’s Temptation I Cannot Resist: I have to write something on a steamy mirror…and I have to feel house plants to see if they are real or not.  I have to look up my last name in the telephone director when I am in a strange city…and I have to play chopsticks whenever I pass a piano!
