  1. Mary, this was too cute. I got to King George and knew he was Bertie, so went back and realized where this was headed. I got 3 right ... didn't know the others! NOW to see if any of my 7 Grands can get this right!!

    1. You did much better than I did, Marni. :) It was fun, though, even if I do feel pretty dumb now. :)

    1. You know, I should have known that one. A while back I saw a TV program about Africa that mentioned the islands, but of course I completely forgot about them while taking this test. :)

  3. I got three. LOL should have had four, as I too knew George was known as Bertie, but for some odd reason put down Edward instead of Albert. Bad mistake! LOL
