Thank you, Heist. I just looked over the quiz again and noticed some things that can do with improvement. For instance, the Thirty Year peace. What the...? That could mean anything! I am making some adjustments right now.

My problem is, I am too generous with hints or so obscure that people must shake their heads wondering if I am not from another planet.

I need to overhaul my whole repertoire, actually. Improve the quizzes I can and send others into forced early retirement.

Thank you again, Heist. A nice, easy name to remember.
