    #12 Was the TV show you were on any sort of cooking/home improvement show?
    Heh heh - now it's starting to get interesting! Strange as it may sound; I've always liked questioning games; because of the strategies that can be used by a skilled questioner to narrow the possibilities down. In general; the first ten questions are all about elimination; the remaining ten shrewd guesses based on available knowledge. It's was astonishing how the great veteran journalist Gordon Sinclair or historian/writer Pierre Burton could arrow in on the most obscure stories from decades earlier. I love strategy in any form; and these people were very good at choosing the right questions.

    Anyway:
    No - it wasn't.
    (And I should point out - because Fred Davis would have - that the TV appearances might not necessarily been on a specific show. Not giving anything away; just cautioning against narrowing your ideas too far. )

    (GJ; I chose this one rather than yours; because the answer to your question is in the opening post and I didn't want to cheat you out of a question. )

    No.

    (Besides - she's dead.)

    15 and 16 are repeats; therefore don't count against the total.

    Yes; though my book is a bio about the event for which I became famous; it isn't the cause of my 'fame'.

    She was a famous chef who popularized French cuisine in North America. This larger than life woman (she was like 6'4"), with a acerbic wit, was an icon on T.V. and wrote many books on cooking.

    No.

    (Edit: Actually; it's quite likely she won awards in university etc.; but they've nothing to do with the subject at hand. i.e. no Olympic medals; nobel prizes, etc.)

    Yes.

    Umm - Stupid me; I'd better qualify this.

    The subject is over 50 now; but during the events which made her famous was not. I hope that clears that up; and didn't throw anyone off.


    One other thing:

    I realize that the posting restrictions (i.e. who can guess) are too...er...restrictive; I just got a PM about it and after looking at it I agree. Whoops - sorry about that.

    OK; so I withdraw the posting restrictions on time and # of posts required to guess the subject.
