    1. A man went on a trip with a fox, a goose and a sack of corn. He came upon a stream which he had to cross and found a tiny boat to use to cross the stream. He could only take himself and one other - the fox, the goose, or the corn - at a time. He could not leave the fox alone with the goose or the goose alone with the corn. How does he get all safely over the stream?

    2. I belong in the month of December, but not in any other month. I am not a holiday. What am I? *hint* It doesn't have to do with a day or temperature…

    3. What word has three consecutive double letters?

    4. What’s green and white and jumps up and down?

    Great question, I will have to see who solves this one. It is too late in the day for me to riddle it out.

    take the goose across.
    come back collect the fox
    leave the fox on the far bank and return with the goose.
    leave the goose on the first bank and collect the corn
    deliver the corn
    return to the first bank and collect the goose.
