A Blogthing

Thanks to hooey for this silly thing! Fun test to take! Go on ... give it a try!

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations - you got 10 out of 10 correct!

And since I was there, I did a few others. Some are very odd, but I liked this one. Probably because I look good in the results! LOL

You are a Believer

You believe in God and your chosen religion.

Whether you're Christian, Muslim, Jewish, or Hindu..

Your convictions are strong and unwavering.

You think your religion is the one true way, for everyone.

The Anchoress had a slow day and actually posted a link to the above! This is the first link to my blog! *sigh*

I suppose I should quit now, huh?

In any event, I recommend a visit to the fine Lady's site for some interesting, thought-provoking reading. She's a pip!

Checking in after you left a few comments on my blog. Nice Blog.

On the citizenship test, yes it's easy but the amount of material that citizen candidates have to cover is not limited to 10 easy questions. In my experience naturalized citizens are better educated about our country's history and form of government than many natural born citizens. You only have to watch Jay Leno quizzing people on the street to verify my theory.

By the way I was born in Philly and lived in Yeadon, just outside of Upper Darby.

Ahhh, I was reared in Levittown. Bucks County. Not terribly far from Upper Darby. Can't recall hearing the name Yeadon, so I'll have to go google it!


There it is! Across Philly from where I was. Delaware County, across the river from Cherry Hill, if that map is correct! LOL

Wow! You were right around the corner, almost. :D
