Mystery Person

OK, in the interest of appealing to a wider demographic, and to spur young women on to achieve great things, our mystery person today is a Woman. I am not going to give any hints. You have to figure out who she is, and what she was famous for. Enjoy!


  1. Nobel prize winner,
    Madame Curie?

  2. Ray,
    Most people over here are not even up, and the contest is already over. Yes, you are right, it is Madam Curie, who discovered Radium, and was early pioneer in study of Radiation.

    Yes sir, you are good. Poor Heather did not have a chance. She probably slept in again today.

  3. It is just 7:05 here and there's a winner?? I'm going to have to start getting up earlier. Good Job Ray!

    In defence of Heather
    and all other American
    viewers of your site,
    we get your post just
    after noon.

    Thought I'd mention it
    in fairness to all.
    I'm sure your aware of

  5. Ray,
    Yes, one of those advantages to living in the UK . . . slight advantage on the old Mystery Person contest.

    Thanks for participating!

  6. Oh my goodness! It can't be over already! I vote to post two on in the am and one in the pm. I look forward to this all week :-)

    No sleeping in again. We got an ice storm and I was out trying to access damage.

  7. Oh, so no fair! :-) Boston is buried in snow, and I had to get up at dawn to shovel! Je suis desole!

  8. Thanks Sheila.
    In future I won't post
    my comment until 8:30,
    your time.

    And that's if I know it.
    This is the first one I've
    got, straight off.

  9. Ray, don't hold back your answers. Believe me, if I would have been on and knew the answer I would have posted it. You did great! I'm just greedy and want more....

  10. Your too hard on yourself,
    Heather. I didn't have to
    check for ice damage.
    Well, not yet anyway.

  11. Hooray! I guessed this one correctly!!!

    (A first for me!)

  12. Jeez, I didn't stand a chance!

  13. Your comment gave it away..too easy.

  14. PJM -

    Maybe you could schedule the mystery person one hour earlier each time? That would give every time zone a shot, and if you go earlier, it would be like going back in time. Appropriate, I think.
