In honor of this feat of crazed posting (and as a little belated President’s Day gift to my readers), we are posting our first quiz (big thanks to my historically smart husband) with a PRIZE associated with it. From those that get every question right, one will be picked at random to receive a $25 Gift card to Bed bath and Beyond! Woo Hoo!

No more entries after Midnight on Thursday night. Winner will be announced Friday morning.
