    • Good for you, Doc and thank you for taking the quiz. I still have quite a few capitals to go but I have to check how many histories I have written up. You know what? I got hired to write up an ebook about New York State – 50 tips about visiting the state because I am originally from NYC. The book shall have my name on it isn’t that something? It won’t pay so much but the prestige is nice and to get myself into that travel series.
