Yes I did!  :D

Thanks for pointing it out. French Lick (Okay you all!! No HAHA's and HEE HEE's ! I know. It's a funny name) is trying to re-establish itself as a premier resort. They just built some new hotels and restaurants there, and opened a new casino. I wouldn't want to plan an entire vacation in French Lick, but it can be fun for a day or two!  :D

Okay. It's a little OT but somebody actually called us SMART!!!

(We don't hear that very often around here!)


***************************************************************

Indiana License Plates: What The Numbers Mean
Written by Lynnette on December 18, 2004 :: Comments


 I think that the people of Indiana are smart people for this reason alone: They don't need to have the county printed on their license plates in order to know exactly where in Indiana a particular driver is from.



Did you know that?

It's a bit of trivia that has always impressed my husband, so I figured it might interest some others too...

 Jim was always fascinated that we could be in Florida, driving past a car with Indiana tags, and yet I could remark with confidence, "Oh, they're from Fort Wayne!" or "They're from Wabash!" just by looking at their license plate.

You see, I used to live in Indiana. I was born in "71", but grew up in "52". I hung with all the military brats who lived on the base in "9". I shopped in "34" (or drove an hour-and-a-half to "2" if I wanted a "real mall"). I went to college in "53".

How Indiana's Numbering System Works
It's based on an alphabetical listing of all 92 counties within the state of Indiana. For example, license plates issued in Miami County start with the prefix "52" because it's the fifty-second county in the alphabetical listing.

If you're wondering which number represents which county, check out this alphabetical list of all 92 Indiana counties. (Click on a county to see which cities are located in that particular county.)

http://www.in.gov/dot/pubs/maps/counties/


If you're wondering where a particular county in Indiana is, check out this state map with all Indiana counties. (Click on a county to view the demographics and key facts about that particular county.)

http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/maps/indiana_map.html

Here are some interesting facts about Indiana license plates and their changes through the years.

http://www.15q.net/in.html

Florida tried to incorporate a similar numbering strategy, but ended up ditching the idea. Here's how Florida used numbers on their license plates to depict different counties from 1938 to 1975.

http://www.floridaplates.com/

So there you have it!... A way to impress your friends the next time you pass a car with Indiana tags on it.

*************************************************************

How about that?? They think we're smart!!  :D

another tid bit about French Lick Springs....remember Pluto Water?

It was, perhaps, one of the first bottled waters sold in the U.S. and was taken from the springs around french Lick. Peopled LOVED it. Whenever we felt a bit sick, my grandmother would always say, 'give 'em some Pluto water...'

it was taken off the market by the governament because it contained huge amounts of lithium which occurs naturally around french lick. and part of the reason for the name is that the deer in the area were always licking the rocks in the streams....guess why!

Yeah, I remember reading about that pluto water. Lithium occurs naturally throughout Indiana, I think. I know it's found in southern and central Indiana. That's why the state government is trying to switch everyone from well water to city water.

My parents had well water when they first moved into their house. The well was about 300 feet deep and it had an electric pump that carried the water into the house. It tasted really good too. It was nice and cold. It had a slight sweet taste to it. Maybe that was the lithium we were tasting?  ???

Thanks for posting this very interesting quiz. It has improved my knowledge of Indiana enormously!  :D

David,

 Having lived most of my life on the west coast, I know almost nothing about your homestate, I'm sorry to say.  I did do a poetry reading in Evansville in 2003 to promote a book of mine, and that's as much time as I ever spent in Indiana and I would take your quiz if I could answer any questions, but I can't, cause I just don't know any answers!

Yeah, I remember reading about that pluto water. Lithium occurs naturally throughout Indiana, I think. I know it's found in southern and central Indiana. That's why the state government is trying to switch everyone from well water to city water.



So does that mean no one is bipolar there?

Maybe.

Or maybe it means 2/3 of all Hoosiers are addicted to lithium whether they're bipolar or not.  ;)

David,

 Having lived most of my life on the west coast, I know almost nothing about your homestate, I'm sorry to say.  I did do a poetry reading in Evansville in 2003 to promote a book of mine, and that's as much time as I ever spent in Indiana and I would take your quiz if I could answer any questions, but I can't, cause I just don't know any answers!


I live in Sydney, Australia, Rayn, and what I knew about Indiana, prior to taking David's quiz, could fit on the back of a postage stamp. I only knew a couple of things I'd heard David talk about at his blog. But I was keen to know more, so went to the Web and gleaned as much information as I could put together. I was careful not to read any of the previous responses prior to submitting my own responses. I had a lot of fun answering David's Indiana quiz and learnt a great deal about his home state, from the Web, in the process. How about giving it a go, yourself? It's fun!  :D

Phewww!!!  That was complete guesswork David.  And what on earth is one of the great lakes doing anywhere near Indiana???  I've always thought it was much further south.  My answer for the indian tribes question is based solely on the fact one of the pups in my current litter is called Pawnee.  I have no idea if it is a tribe native to Indiana or not! LOL

I live in Sydney, Australia, Rayn, and what I knew about Indiana, prior to taking David's quiz, could fit on the back of a postage stamp. I only knew a couple of things I'd heard David talk about at his blog. But I was keen to know more, so went to the Web and gleaned as much information as I could put together. I was careful not to read any of the previous responses prior to submitting my own responses. I had a lot of fun answering David's Indiana quiz and learnt a great deal about his home state, from the Web, in the process. How about giving it a go, yourself? It's fun!  :D


Well good for you!  As for me, it ain't gonna be thata way, thanks anyhow.

I don't want anyone taking the quiz if they don't want to, or if they're not comfortable.  :)

Kerry, you should post another quiz about Australia! Or better yet, a quiz about New South Wales, or even Sydney!  :D

I wish everyone would post a quiz about their cities, states or countries. I think it's a good way for all of us to know each other better. Don't you?

Melissa said she would post a quiz about Holland, but I have yet to see it!  ???

Melissa.... what are you doing honey? What's the hold up  ;)  :D

Hmm, only got 3 responses to the Australia quiz, David. How many responses would I get to a Sydney quiz, I wonder?  :-\  I might pass on that one lol, but thank you for suggesting it.   :D

Kerry, the lack of responses may have been because no one knew about it.  I only heard about it yesterday after David invited me to do his quiz and he mentioned your's in his first post.  By the way, I did then go and have a look at your quiz and was 100% correct. ;D  But then being an Aussie, I do have an advantage.  ;)

Can someone direct me to Kerry's Australian quiz? I'd love to take it, assuming that it's not closed and the answers already posted.

David, I think your idea of various quizzes on places offered by folks living in or from them is wonderful! I might cook up a Texas quiz one of these days, if another of our Lone Star members doesn't beat me to it.

I wish you would, Scott! I'll take it!  :D

If a fellow Texan Brokie beats you to it, you could always write a second one with different questions! Or you could write a quiz about Austin!!  :)

Kerry, as Jocelyn pointed out to you, I PMed people and told them about my quiz. Otherwise, I doubt very many people would have taken my quiz.  If you write a quiz and then pm people and tell them, I'm sure many will come here and take it. After all, Australia is a HUGE country. I doubt one quiz covered it all. There's still plenty of questions out there! Don't you think?  :D

I'm going to go ahead and post the answers to my quiz a few days early. I'd like to shift interest over to two or three new quizes posted in the forum. Lee and Scott both posted new quizzes about their home states of Georgia and Texas. Also, there has been renewed interest in Kerry's Australia quiz. I have stickied all three of them for several days.

For those of you who haven't taken this quiz, you may still take it and then scroll back up to this reply and check your answers.  :D

Thanks to everyone in advance for taking it.


Here's the answers.........






1.) The capital of Indiana is

Indianapolis

In 1818, the Federal government purchased land in present day central Indiana through treaties with local Native American tribes, and then turned the new land over to the state. Attracted by the White river and the central location, the state capitol was moved from Corydon to Indianapolis in 1825. But the White river proved to be too shallow for most large river boats. Today, Indianapolis is one the largest American cities not on a navigatable waterway. Jeremiah Sullivan created the city's name by combining Indiana (meaning "Land of Indians") with "polis", the Greek word for city.


2.) Indiana is located in what part of the United States?

The Midwest

Indiana is located in the lower Midwest and shares a border with Kentucky, a Southern state. Indiana is sometimes referred to as a "border state", because it borders the South. Indiana's southern border is situated on the Ohio River, an extension of the Mason-Dixon line which traditionally divides the Northern states from the Southern states.


3.) The first permanent settlement in Indiana is now the city or town of

Vincennes

The French founded Vincennes in 1731. Two years later in 1733, a fort was built in Vincennes. In 1763, France handed the Indiana Territory over to Great Britain, and George Rogers Clark and his frontiersmen captured Vincennes from the British in 1779.


4.) Two river systems help to form part of Indiana's state boundaries. What are they?

Ohio river and Wabash river

The Ohio River forms all of Indiana's southern border with Kentucky. The Wabash River cuts across north central Indiana before turning southwest at Lafayette. The Wabash then begins to create Indiana's southwestern border with Illinois at Terre Haute, before emptying into the Ohio river near Evansville and Mount Vernon in the southwestern corner of the state. The remainder of Indiana's western border, along with its northern and eastern borders are imaginary lines, except for Lake Michigan in the northwest corner.


5.) Indiana achieved statehood in what year?

1816

Indiana was admitted into the Union on December 11th, 1816; the 19th state.



6.) The state motto of Indiana is

The Crossroads of America

More than half of the US population live within a one day drive of Indiana. In addition to dozens of highways, Indiana is served by interstates I-80/90, I-65, I-74, I-70, I-69 and I-64. Much of the nation's air and ground cargo pass through Indiana, and water freight is carried through the state, both on the Ohio River at the Ports of Indiana, and on Lake Michigan at Gary, Hammond, and Michigan City, Indiana.


7.) Indiana has what kind of climate?

Hot summers and cold winters

Indiana has hot, humid summers with temperatures frequently reaching the mid and upper 90's to over 100 degrees (32 - 40 C), and cold snowy winters. Sub zero temperatures (-18 C) are not unusual in most parts of the state during winter; especially at night. Tornadoes are frequent and can occur any time of the year, but are most common in spring and early summer. Autumn is crisp and cool throughout the state, and blizzards are not unheard of during the winter, especially in northern Indiana. The average high temperature for Indianapolis: January: 38 F (4 C)   July: 89 F (32 C).


8.) Important Indiana exports include:

Pharmaceuticals, corn, tobacco and spearmint

Eli Lilly, one of the world's largest drug manufacturers is headquartered in Indianapolis. Indiana is also a major manufacturer of medical equipment and devices. Corn is grown throughout the state,  while spearmint and peppermint are grown in the north, and tobacco in southern Indiana. Indiana also produces much of the world's popcorn. Watermelons, pumpkins and cantelopes are also major exports, along with soybeans, oats, poultry, cattle and hogs. Numerous dairy farms are located in northern Indiana. Since much of the nation's food is produced in Indiana, it is known as a "breadbasket" state. Indiana is also a leading manufacturer of musical instruments and travel trailers. Indiana limestone is used in buildings and monuments throughout the country. The Pentagon, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Empire State Building were all built with Indiana limestone.


9.) The landscape of Indiana is mostly

Flat in the north and hilly in the south

Indiana is very flat in the north, but gradually becomes hilly just south of Indianapolis. The Appalachian foothills begin forming near Bloomington, and the terrain becomes quite jagged and rugged near the Ohio river in south central and southeastern Indiana.


10.) The largest city in Indiana is

Indianapolis

With the exception of Lawrence, Speedway and Beech Grove (all independent cities within Indianapolis) the city spans all of Marion County. Population: 791,926. Greater Indianapolis (which encompasses 8 counties including Marion) has a population of about 2 million people. One third of all Hoosiers live in greater Indianapolis.


11.) The state bird of Indiana is the

Cardinal

Even though all the birds listed are found in Indiana, the state bird is the cardinal. The male cardinal sports bright red feathers and a pointed crown or peak on the top of his head.


12.) The state tree of Indiana is the

Tulip Tree

Except for the Palmetto, all of the trees listed grow abundantly in Indiana. The Tulip Tree is the official state tree. It belongs to the family Magnoliaceae, and is classified as Liriodendron Tulipifera, a type of magnolia. It is known for its large yellow-green flowers which resemble tulips.

Sycamore trees are also very common in Indiana; so much in fact that songs have even been written about them. The magestic trees are described in "On the Banks of the Wabash", the official state song of Indiana.


13.) The state flag of Indiana consists of what colors?

Blue and gold

The Indiana state flag only has two colors; midnight blue and gold.



14.) The shape of Indiana vaguely resembles a

Boot (or Box)



Most people think of Indiana as boot shaped, like a cowboy boot with the toe pointing westward. Indiana could also be described as box shaped, since three of its four borders consist mostly of straight lines. Michigan, Indiana's neighbor to the north is mitten shaped.



15.) What is the main feature on the Indiana state flag?

Torch and stars



A gold torch and stars appear against a dark blue background. The torch symbolizes freedom and knowledge. The stars represent Indiana's entry into the Union as the 19th state. The flag also features a gold fringe.

A buffalo and a pioneer chopping a tree appear on Indiana's state seal.



16.) Which Great Lake is partially located in Indiana?

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan just barely touches Indiana in the northwestern corner of the state.  Excellent beaches can be found along Lake Michigan near the Indiana towns of Michiana, Potawatomi Park, Michigan City, Ogden Dunes, Tremont, Beverly Shores and Portage. The beaches are beautiful, although the water does remain quite cold most of the year due to the tremendous depth of the lake.



17.) Which celebrities are from Indiana?

Brendan Fraser and Greg Kinnear

Brendan Fraser was born in Indianapolis, and Greg Kinnear is from Logansport. 

Other famous Hoosiers include: Michael Jackson (Gary), Janet Jackson (Gary), James Dean (Marion), Florence Henderson (Dale), John Mellencamp (Seymour), Shelley Long (Fort Wayne), Jim Davis/Garfield the cat (Muncie), David Letterman (Indianapolis), Steve McQueen (Beech Grove), violinist Joshua Bell (Bloomington), Red Skelton (Vincennes) and Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (Henryville).



18.) The first governor of Indiana was

Jonathan Jennings

Jonathan Jennings was elected the first governor of Indiana. At the time of his election, Indiana's population totaled only 64,000 people. He served as Indiana's governor from 1816 - 1822. Jennings county, in southeastern Indiana is named in honor of the first governor.



19.) Major Indian tribes in Indiana included

The Miami, Potawatomi, Mohican and Shawnee

Most of Indiana's Native Americans belonged to the Eastern Woodland tribes. The Miami, Potawatomi, Mohican and Shawnee were among the larger and more powerful tribes in the state. Other tribes in Indiana included the Delaware, Munsee, Huron, Kickapoo, Piankashaw and Wea. Tecumseh, the famous Shawnee chief, led several tribes to war against General William Henry Harrison and his troops in the historic Battle of Tippecanoe, near present day Lafayette, Indiana.



20.) The inhabitants of Indiana are often referred to as

Hoosiers

The people of Indiana are frequently referred to as either Hoosiers or Indianians. Nobody knows for certain where the word Hoosier came from. One theory is a corruption of the word "Husher" in reference to Indiana's early pioneers who would often "hush" an enemy or opponent with their fists. Others think it might be a derivation of "Who's Here", a phrase often uttered when settlers heard a knock on their cabin door. Most likely the word is in reference to Samuel Hoosier, who preferred hiring Indiana men to Kentuckians while constructing the canals along the Ohio River.



It's often been said that "Indiana is everyone's home", and in many ways it's true. Perhaps this is due to Indiana's central location in the country. Or perhaps it's because of the warm "Hoosier Hospitality" extended to everyone visiting the state. Regardless of the reason, people always feel right at home in Indiana.


Thanks again for taking my Indiana quiz!!  :D

Indiana limestone is used in buildings and monuments throughout the country. The Pentagon, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Empire State Building were all built with Indiana limestone.
Add the tower of The University of Texas at Austin's Main Building to that list. Completed in 1937, the famous tower is entirely faced with Indiana limestone.
Other famous Hoosiers include: Michael Jackson (Gary), Janet Jackson (Gary), James Dean (Marion), Florence Henderson (Dale), John Mellencamp (Seymour), Shelley Long (Fort Wayne), Jim Davis/Garfield the cat (Muncie), David Letterman (Indianapolis), Steve McQueen (Beech Grove), violinist Joshua Bell (Bloomington), Red Skelton (Vincennes) and Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (Henryville).
I'd like to add Curt McDowell and Melinda McDowell (both born and raised in Lafayette) to your venerable list! :D

Since much of the nation's food is produced in Indiana, it is known as a "breadbasket" state. Indiana is also a leading manufacturer of musical instruments and travel trailers. Indiana limestone is used in buildings and monuments throughout the country. The Pentagon, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Empire State Building were all built with Indiana limestone.


9.) The landscape of Indiana is mostly

Flat in the north and hilly in the south

Indiana is very flat in the north, but gradually becomes hilly just south of Indianapolis. The Appalachian foothills begin forming near Bloomington, and the terrain becomes quite jagged and rugged near the Ohio river in south central and southeastern Indiana.


10.) The largest city in Indiana is

Indianapolis

With the exception of Lawrence, Speedway and Beech Grove (all independent cities within Indianapolis) the city spans all of Marion County. Population: 791,926. Greater Indianapolis (which encompasses 8 counties including Marion) has a population of about 2 million people. One third of all Hoosiers live in greater Indianapolis.


11.) The state bird of Indiana is the

Cardinal

Even though all the birds listed are found in Indiana, the state bird is the cardinal. The male cardinal sports bright red feathers and a pointed crown or peak on the top of his head.


12.) The state tree of Indiana is the

Tulip Tree

Except for the Palmetto, all of the trees listed grow abundantly in Indiana. The Tulip Tree is the official state tree. It belongs to the family Magnoliaceae, and is classified as Liriodendron Tulipifera, a type of magnolia. It is known for its large yellow-green flowers which resemble tulips.

Sycamore trees are also very common in Indiana; so much in fact that songs have even been written about them. The magestic trees are described in "On the Banks of the Wabash", the official state song of Indiana.


13.) The state flag of Indiana consists of what colors?

Blue and gold

The Indiana state flag only has two colors; midnight blue and gold.



14.) The shape of Indiana vaguely resembles a

Boot (or Box)



Most people think of Indiana as boot shaped, like a cowboy boot with the toe pointing westward. Indiana could also be described as box shaped, since three of its four borders consist mostly of straight lines. Michigan, Indiana's neighbor to the north is mitten shaped.



15.) What is the main feature on the Indiana state flag?

Torch and stars



A gold torch and stars appear against a dark blue background. The torch symbolizes freedom and knowledge. The stars represent Indiana's entry into the Union as the 19th state. The flag also features a gold fringe.

A buffalo and a pioneer chopping a tree appear on Indiana's state seal.



16.) Which Great Lake is partially located in Indiana?

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan just barely touches Indiana in the northwestern corner of the state.  Excellent beaches can be found along Lake Michigan near the Indiana towns of Michiana, Potawatomi Park, Michigan City, Ogden Dunes, Tremont, Beverly Shores and Portage. The beaches are beautiful, although the water does remain quite cold most of the year due to the tremendous depth of the lake.



17.) Which celebrities are from Indiana?

Brendan Fraser and Greg Kinnear

Brendan Fraser was born in Indianapolis, and Greg Kinnear is from Logansport. 

Other famous Hoosiers include: Michael Jackson (Gary), Janet Jackson (Gary), James Dean (Marion), Florence Henderson (Dale), John Mellencamp (Seymour), Shelley Long (Fort Wayne), Jim Davis/Garfield the cat (Muncie), David Letterman (Indianapolis), Steve McQueen (Beech Grove), violinist Joshua Bell (Bloomington), Red Skelton (Vincennes) and Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (Henryville).



18.) The first governor of Indiana was

Jonathan Jennings

Jonathan Jennings was elected the first governor of Indiana. At the time of his election, Indiana's population totaled only 64,000 people. He served as Indiana's governor from 1816 - 1822. Jennings county, in southeastern Indiana is named in honor of the first governor.



19.) Major Indian tribes in Indiana included

The Miami, Potawatomi, Mohican and Shawnee

Most of Indiana's Native Americans belonged to the Eastern Woodland tribes. The Miami, Potawatomi, Mohican and Shawnee were among the larger and more powerful tribes in the state. Other tribes in Indiana included the Delaware, Munsee, Huron, Kickapoo, Piankashaw and Wea. Tecumseh, the famous Shawnee chief, led several tribes to war against General William Henry Harrison and his troops in the historic Battle of Tippecanoe, near present day Lafayette, Indiana.



20.) The inhabitants of Indiana are often referred to as

Hoosiers

The people of Indiana are frequently referred to as either Hoosiers or Indianians. Nobody knows for certain where the word Hoosier came from. One theory is a corruption of the word "Husher" in reference to Indiana's early pioneers who would often "hush" an enemy or opponent with their fists. Others think it might be a derivation of "Who's Here", a phrase often uttered when settlers heard a knock on their cabin door. Most likely the word is in reference to Samuel Hoosier, who preferred hiring Indiana men to Kentuckians while constructing the canals along the Ohio River.
