I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family

  1. I got 8. I accidentally ticked the wrong answer. Theatre and theater are the same. Theatre is British spelling while theater is American. I get confused between British and American spellings on the same words.
    Another example is centre (British) and center (American).
    Good quiz.

    • I agree with you. We go by what British taught us before leaving our country😉 There are countless ways both spell things differently. I am a staunch follower of what the British have to say

      When it comes to theatre or theater. I think theatre refers to operation theatre in a hospital
