"How Little We Know"

You all know that I love quizzes!  My baby sis knows me well 'cause she sent me this one  and she was right....I found out rather quickly that I DON'T know everything!  I didn't do too badly....I got 6 1/2 correct, but I sure didn't know everything!  Do you??

Go ahead and try it....and just to keep it interesting, I won't post the answers till tomorrow! 
Now let's keep it honest, no Googling!!  Just what you know....or DON'T know as the case may be!   You might be surprised at "How Little We Know."

There are only nine questions.  These are not trick questions.  They are straight questions with straight answers.

Have fun.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year.
  What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle.
  The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way.  How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters 'dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter 'S.'

Oh by the way, this isn't a contest or a giveaway.  No prize!  Just the satisfaction ....uhhhn.... realization that your head might just be stuffed with trivia and minutiae!  LOL!
Come on back tomorrow to see the answers!
