The California gull (Larus californicus) is the state bird of Utah because of the “Miracle of the Gulls”, where they assisted Mormon settlers by eating thousands of “Mormon crickets” (actually closer to katydids) that were devouring the settlers’ spring 1848 crops. A seagull monument, located in front of Salt Lake Assembly Hall in Temple Square, was erected to commemorate the event.

Andy, I was talking about everyone who went to the Teen Tournament Semifinal & Final taping in Washington D.C. back in April. The semifinal & final contestants would be POTENTIAL spoilers. I’m just saying. Not asking again.
By the way, I didn’t went to the taping. But Idk why.
Tuesday’s episode (11/8/2016) aired today, Monday the 7th.
This episode was NOT aired in New York City on Monday. Alex announced that it was “Election Day” and an episode that had Georjean as the champion was aired.
In New York City, the November 8, 2016 episode was aired today.
I missed the Monday November 7 episode as our local channel had a pre-election special. What was the clue with a red Cross. I saw it on an ad earlier in the day. I served on the USNS Mercy and wondered if it was about a hospital ship.
There was an entire category about the USNS Comfort.
