Awesome! Good work. I like that it was a family project.

This reminds me of an episode of "Almost Live" (a Seattle show) that ran a quiz: "Typographical Error or City in Wales?"

I knew some were drugs and some were bands, but I won't say which!

Oh, how sad is this - I missed only 2. And I know bupkiss about metal bands.

Who came up with this being a good family project?! (and, it is, a Good Family Project).
I like your Middle and Youngest more and more. Oldest is away and not mentioned so much. I bet I would like him as well. I still laugh about Youngest rescuing 2 orphans at lunchtime...
