2. "PAPER DOLL"--How could I miss this? I loved playing with paper dolls when I was little. Of course that was a LONG time ago!!
3. MELONS
4. the Waldorf-Astoria hotel
5. 1955--One thousand nine hundred fifty-five wins is very impressive! And I only guessed one!
6. NEW HAMPSHIRE
7. OLD IRONSIDES
8. Norway
CRAP !!--There were so many elements to this one that I figured at least one of them had to be false!
