I blew 1 and 10! Hahahahaha! Some Canadian I am! I thought language was federally regulated not provincially. Oops. And that was a sneaky question about the free standing structure LT. Thanks for the nod to Canada today. I enjoyed it.

I missed #1, (same reason as Alix).

#4, #5, #6 and #11 oddly I got the "Great One's" points right by guessing! Do I get extra points for knowing his "nickname"? Not bad for a Yankee tho. I forgot about that tower in Dubai..... Rats!

Alix, don't worry - I also got 10 wrong and of all things #5. I guess I haven't seen that many $100 bills -

LuckyTrim, thanks so much for this. I just saw it now, but was delighted that you thought of us up here in the North (or were you just tired of me whining about not knowing the American stuff ?)

I finally beat the Princess!
