Got stuck on the vehicles, thinking, oh, it's like a cavalcade, only with cars...

A cavalcade can be with cars. That's what I tried, too. Maybe it could be accepted?

Really? The word comes from the French caval, meaning horse - hence cavalry, cavalier (and cavalcade!) and so on. But the dictionary agrees with you, so that word will also work now - I guess it's one of those words that over time has drifted away from its original meaning.

Couldn't figure out why "wade" would be specific to a swamp or mud. You can wade in any body of water, right?

Nice quiz, a bit tougher than the first one. Incidentally, oranamental railing should read ornamental....

Cavalcade?

Caval- = on horses, hence cavalry and cavalier. We had a look at the dictionary which suggests the meaning might be widening beyond horses these days - we'll wait to get more feedback from you whether you associate cavacades with cars as well as horses!

For changing from Economy to Business, all I could think of was switching courses of study in college! Ah, just one more reminder to stay humble.

What is a national day? And I doubt all countries have it, and if they do, that those that do all have parades. (we don't really have parades, only with carnaval, and in the region that is known for its flowers there is a flowerparade once a year. Which are floats covered in flowers usually representing something (basicly like statues made out of flowers, like this) Other than that I don't think we have them at all. (not counting demonstrations. not sure if that is included in the word.

Escalade was the only one I didn't get.

So I looked it up.

It is a transitive verb in the military sense of 'to climb up and get over or enter (a wall, rampart, etc.) by means of ladders' and also the act of doing so, as a noun.

Nice quiz Jerry, stuff learned :)
