OK, you’re looking at the headline for the quiz and wondering whether The Quizmaster has lost what little was left of his mind. While that still might be the case, I’m not talking about the weather. I’m referring to the number of days left in this regular season. There are 43 days remaining.

Just 43 days until the South Siders can end another nightmare of a season. Just 43 days for the Cubs to prove they want overtime baseball this season. There are only six weeks and one day for you to get to the ballpark and cheer your team. Or maybe not cheer.

Today’s quiz has to do with the 40s. Each question or answer will have something to do with 40-something. So have fun and learn a lot. And remember, as a wise man (Bob Dylan) told you, ‘‘You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.’’
