Ok, here is my little U.S. trivia question. Which of the lower 48 has the northernmost point? (LT--I don't remember ever seeing this in your trivia, but if you did have it, I guess we're having it again!).

Highlight between brackets for the answer [Minnesota].

LOL I thought you might have, since you are pretty much on top of things! A lot of people don't know that, so I thought I would throw it in just in case!

Did better than I thought I would. Most of my misses were simply because I can't remember some states' capitals! OK, Ok I'm 55 and probably memorized them when I was in 6th grade! In most of those (most northerly, southerly, etc) I had the right state but couldn't remember what the state capital was! The more obscure ones (Duluth, Gary, Savannah) I got right (but then, I've visited those places in the past couple of decades!) I'm going to get hubby on here and see how many he gets! Knowing him, probably all.
