Hoo here is a wise owl?

My daughter is taking a journalism class this year. One of her assignments is to visit this site and take some of the quizzes.
Hmmm, I thought I'd give it a try. They're rather fun, and ahem, a challenge at times. Hooo here can get all A's??!!! ;)

"People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge."
Lao-tzu (604 BC - 531 BC), The Way of Lao-tzu

"Knowledge is power."
Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626), Religious Meditations, Of Heresies, 1597

Hi Gals,
you're all being funny; you'd probably do alright depending on the subject!! :))
(ps. I failed one of the geography quizzes, but that's okay as I'm an American!! ;DDDD)

Hi David,
Welcome! My daughter is an excellent writer, and I've encouraged her to pursue that avenue. She's big into graphic arts, web design and photograpy.

Hi - I love the quotes. As for quizzes, methinks I'll stick to Blogthings for now. I'm having enough trouble keeping up with my blog reading and posting. The link DID work, I just didn't want to expend the mental energy with TENNIS recorded to watch when I finish here.
Hugs and blessings,
