Wow, I'm SO impressed! I just now went over my list in comparison and what shocked me was a few I felt SURE about in Group 1 weren't right. And even funnier---I spent a LOT more time on Group 1 than Group 2 and got 11 out of 18 right in Group 2, and only 4 right in Group 1!

This was so much fun, Marc :D And I'm glad to know about this book! Yay for all the winners! :D
