"Laughter is one of the sweetest songs of life." (My blog has a musical theme interwoven in it amongst humor, photography, thoughts etc. I see common interests here and soak up your blog like a tye-dyed sponge.

I use quizzes like this when I teach or for workshops. It's fun to show the obvious...as in "following directions by reading carefully." Sure is gr8 to laugh! :) Yes, I passed w/ "flying colours", but I'm an artist & a scientist & recognized the "catch"... ;)
