ONCE UPON A TIME there was a royal family of three brothers. One was named Kiy, the second was Shchek, the third was Khoriv and they had a beautiful sister called Lybid. Their parents had been killed by invaders from the East and they were searching for a place to make a new home. When they arrived at the beautiful place where Kiev is located now and saw seven majestic green hills rising above the river , Kiy chose the place as their new home. Kiy and his brothers built a boat and then sailed across the broad and mighty Dnieper River towards the high green bank on the western side. But what should be the name of the new Metropolis? Kiy's brothers and sister decided to name the new city KIEV in honor of their strong and brave elder brother, Prince Kiy. Thus it was the City of Kyiv that was founded on the last weekend in May, in the Spring of the year 482 A.D.
Kiy ruled on the hill which is now called Borichev, Shchek settled on the hill which is now called Shchekovitsa, and Khoriv settled on the third one which after him was called Khorevitsa. And it was thus that they founded the great city over 1,500 years ago. In ancient days this was the land of the Trypilians, Cimmerians, Scythians, Sarmatians, Alans, Antae, Roxolanians and the legendary Amazon women. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus, "the Father of History" wrote that Hercules himself had founded this land. According to the legend here was the very place, the Starokievska Hill, where the Apostle Saint Andrew, centuries earlier came as a missionary to Scythia. He had raised a cross on the hills of Kiev and predicted that here a great city would rise one day with many churches to the glory of God. And so the prophecy was fulfilled. Merchants and craftsmen from far and wide soon gathered by the Dnieper River and settled in the Podol, the lower town, which became the center of commerce. Kiev slowly grew through the centuries.
My friends, I'd like you to recall Danny's and my lessons and to correct the mistakes again. Your task is the same as in "Find and correct the mistakes". For those who are newbies or don't remember, I will explain once again.
There may be a few mistakes in each sentence. You should find and correct them all without changing the vocabulary. It is a grammar test. As usual, I will lead you explaining your mistakes.

Our dear Onee-Chan asked me if we can play Jeopardy again. Sure, we can. The question is whether you would like to play it. So, I would like you to answer three easy questions:
1. Would you like to play Jeopardy without Danny?
