  1. I got 9 right out of 10! I did much better than I expected, as Memorial Day is hardly marked here. It was the last question I got wrong. I just looked up Michael Blassie now. I never heard about that before. Intriguing.

    • Yay, congratulations dear sir! 😉 You did very well Mr. Quiz man himself! You have probably covered this over the years.
      Interesting about Blassie huh? We didn’t know for so many years. Thanks to DNA testing we now have the answer!
