    I also agree with an above poster, what a great reason to go back and re-read the blogs!!!

  2. Hi Jack! I think I did very well! I can’t wait ’til you post the answers! Thanks for brightening my day!!!

  3. I LOLed at the photo in #16…We always skip the Norway film and, as seen in this photo, so does most everyone else.

  4. Very cleaver Jack, Even though I thought I knew alot of them I still went back to look and ended up reading alot of the blogs again. Great questions, really makes you want to review them all over anyway.

  5. What a clever way to get people to re-read your blogs! Do you have a masters degree in marketing? LOL

    And I love how you worked in a model railroading question (#19).

    Well done, Jack!

  6. hey jack
    your quizes are always so much fun and they also brings in a challenge. I decided not to use the open book option and see how well I could do without it. Some of the questions were fairly easy while others had me going back and forth between answers. can’t wait to see how I did and as always keep up the great work.

  7. You just gave me a great smile this morning reading the quiz. As always informative. I love the Donkey cart. We call him Dominick, like the Christmas Donkey song. Every trip I take a picture of my daughter with him so we have a record of her growing up on each trip.
