Lee, how did I do on your Georgia quiz?? Did I get an F?

I hope not!  :)
I 'll go look. I don't think you did too bad.
I'll post the answers later incase anyone else feels like giving it a try!

I think you should change Number Eight. An export of Indiana that is important to me is The Scroll! Know what I mean?

Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

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

Here is a picture of the scroll:

It's owned by Jim Irsay, who also owns the Indianapolis Colts.

As for:

14.) The shape of Indiana vaguely resembles a

Boot (or Box)


Seriously, I think it's more of a sock.  Now Italy is a boot.  :)

Well, the key word is "vaguely", Fran. But you're correct. It does look a bit like a sock, doesn't it?  :D

Considering I guessed every single one of them, I'm very happy with my 13 out of 20!

Susie, I think 13 out of 20 is a very good score; especially for someone who lives so far away from Indiana!  :D
