    Dear MariaLaura, EmilyB, and other quiz-lovers :

    The quizmaster knows all the answers... that is beyond dispute !

    But if we’re honest...
    From the “dumb blonde quiz” I only knew one answer, i.e. the Canary Islands (because I once visited them and read a guidebook where that was mentioned).
    I did do well on your quiz though, 8 out of 10.
    I missed number one and number 10, and I guessed nr.2 right.

    I wish I was blond,
    but I’m not anymore ...

    Regards,
    Frank.
