Senior Citizens: Trivia Helps keep your Mind Alert

Senior Citizens: Trivia Helps keep your Mind Alert

About two years ago, I received an e-mail asking if I was interested in getting a Trivia Question on a daily basis? I was very skeptical with all that can happen with a computer when replying to the wrong person or site. Anyway, I replied with a YES and since that time, I get one or two Trivia Questions each day. In fact, not only do I get the questions, I usually receive another e-mail that gives information about subjects that are very interesting.

I look forward to learning something new each day by answering these questions without cheating. No looking it up on GOOGLE before answering. The site keeps track of my answers and my score stays up in the upper corner where I can see it.  Why not try this? trivia@triviatodayemail.com

Let me know what you think about this site and if you enjoy it?
