  1. Had to laugh about the quiz. My Mom, a teacher, used to joke about giving my sisters and me quizzes about everyday stuff. She didn't really usually, anyway, but it became a family joke.

    Best wishes with the book!

    1. Thanks, Karen! I enjoy making my real quizzes fun by adding in the occasional fake choice for multiple choice questions. Like asking what was the common language of the first century Roman empire and giving the choices Greek, Latin, Hebrew, or Romulan.
