    Over the weekend, we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of our survivalmonkey community. Its been a wonderful 10 years of learning, sharing, forming new friendships and cementing old ones. It always amazes me that from the 8 - 10 original members, we have grown to over 11,000 worldwide, that's 1,100 new members a year for 10 years. Of course, not all members remain to participate but I am certain that every one who has joined us has learned something, even if just one small nugget that is a springboard for thought. It is only through the willing and generous sharing by our members that we can be that refuge for seekers in the vast world of bandwidth.

    So, on behalf of those of us who remember SM as a little reading corner in a room as large as the Library of Congress, thank you all for your participation. You have given each of us things to consider, life lessons to remember, and friendships which will remain even when the "net is down."

    To commemorate our anniversary, we thought it would be fun to have a SM Trivia Game.

    Each day, one question will be posted. some might require a little research and others are just simply a walk down memory lane.

    The answers to the daily question will be be posted in a separate thread, probably the following day. No cheating allowed and have fun.

    I think G---- won the AR. As for Q #3 my guess would be the site's holy man MM.

    No, there was an AR built and gifted, but not to me. And MM wasn't the Israeli.
