On question #10, all of the answers I have seen are ordering them from the time the cities were established, but I am reading the question differently. Im thinking in each of these cities there is some kind of business that was named after them (I hope this makes since, as my brain is about fried by now!). Like "little city chinese restaurant" in marysville, ca. Any ideas on this???? HELLLP MEEE
Hi all, I found this forum a few days ago and have been using everyone's input to verify my research, and look for new directions to research. For the most part I have come up with the same results as is being posted here. If I had something new to add sooner I would have,but you guys usually beat me to it. Question #4 is really screwing with me, and I can't help but think it has something to do with the names of mines or mine shafts. I've spent a lot of time researching this with few results. Has anyone else considered this? By the way, if it wasn't for you guys I would feel like I was stranded on an island.
Hi, I just found this thread today after days upon days of researching these answers and second-guessing myself like mad! I will try my best to help as much as I can.
A simple thought really knocked the key to #10 loose for me. At first I was looking like mad for all the proof I could gather to back up the nickname theory I was working on. However, this question is actually saying that digging for proof is not necessary - the answers are easy!
"Without proof" is there for a reason. there is absolutely no reason to search for any proof to back up a complicated answer. The question simply asks for the order of each establishment's (city) institution (founding), from oldest to youngest. Institution simply means the city's founding - not the nickname's founding...no need to search for lots of proof, b/c the answer is cut and dry. Does that make as much sense to others as it does to me? It seems so incredibly simple when you read the last line carefully and consider 'without proof!"
According to Donna Ewald in her great book on the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the phrase was coined on October 15, 1911 by then President William Howard Taft at a lunch at the Cliff House, "thus immortalizing this sobriquet". President Taft happened to be in town for the groundbreaking of the Exposition the day before in Golden Gate Park. I hope this helps you out! http://www.sfgenealogy.com/sf/history/m2001j.htm
There's death valley, grand canyon, overland trail,
Yosemite falls, even Route 66. Sure they're all found on a map, but it's possible to see them all in a single state. Shed some light for us -- which state?
I agree with "Massachusetts" being the only state to have all the letters from the word "them" in it. Shed some light to me means Thomas Edison which also has all the letters from the word "them" in his name. Everyone knows he invented the light bulb but if you google Thomas Edison and Massuchusetts (copy this link http://www.thomasedison.com/enlightened.html)
Be Enlightened...The "Brockton Operation
MEANWHILE, THEY VIRTUALLY IGNORE THE EVEN GREATER SIGNIFICANCE OF WHAT HE CALLED HIS "FIRST MODEL OF A COMPLETE CENTRAL POWER STATION," - WHICH WAS BUILT IN BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS. To sum up all these sites can be seen in any state if you look them up from wherever you are on a map, computer, in a library, etc. My answer, therefore, is Massachusetts. Please reply with any feedback on this theory.
all the things are also in Alaska...google it...and the shed some light is bc Alaska its nickname is the land of the midnight sun...AKA moon
