Wow!! 4 or 5 of you did very well on this quiz! I don't want to say who they are because I don't want to give away the answers. But I'm impressed! 

Several non Americans did quite well too.   :D

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.
