      I can't b'lieve I missed two of the questions on the state abbreviations quiz. You would think that my years as a postal worker would have stamped such simple facts onto my brain forever. Really fun page.

      I live here in Nevada, and the NV confused someone in the east that I had to call at work one day. She thought I might be calling from "North Virginia".

      Oh, darn. 12/15..I messed up MI and MS and Arizona. I should know these abbreviations as I've studied American Genealogy long enough. Thanks for the quiz! (^..^)

      11/15 is not bad for a Brit and it should have been 12 but I forgot one!

      I dun good! LOL 100%, but in all fairness, most of our sales are to the US, so we have always used the two letter state abbreviations and nine-digit zips! Great quiz, Kathy
