It's Vltava, and all the answers are correct. And I have one more question: why did the quiz die? I've read the whole thread and it was great. Let's try to resurrect it. Come on, sleuths, post your questions!

Della: all right except,
1: was from beginning of WN post to the time I posted the questions. So lot more than 0...
3, 9 & 10 which were skipped.
I admit my response to 9 would be similar, but not the required answer... half points perhaps.
(4. Is Croesy2002 but I'll accept Croesus as maybe that's his Latin name.)
I'll post full answers at 'clock-over' so someelse can have a go :)

Ugh! Did it from memory, and my memory for names is something else again sometimes. Croesy was what I meant. Could see the pic in my mind, but I get a little dyslexic at times. *grin*
I misunderstood the question on bumps for the WN post. Thought you meant from the time you posted the questions. *grin* Mea Culpa

As for #9. NOT a rap fan. *grin* half points more than I expected for that answer.

Saw a Black Eyed Peas cd in the store today when I was looking for the new Andrea Bocelli cd. Thought of this quiz. *grin*
