I think I knew most of them (no, I didn't cheat, I had deleted it from email because I didn't have time to fool with it then!). We'll see tomorrow. :-)

I think I know the answers to most and can't wait to see if I'm right (and to find out the answers I don't know). I won't google to find out but will stay tuned for more.

It is COLD outside at 14 degrees, but I think we're going to go into town for lunch and to see the pretty snowy sights.

Well I got a nice bottle of wine out and started this quiz. I kept drinking the wine and pretty soon I couldn't remember why I was over here. Do you know? Bwahaahahahahaha.

Some of these I know, but some I don't. I'll await the answers.

Have a terrific day. Big hug from cold California. :)
