Strangely enough, the words "Dixie" for the South, and "Mason-Dixon", are not connected at all.

It is one of the trick of "mediums" to say to an audience that they are getting a message from someone named "Mary" or "Maria" or "Marie." The odds are that there are dozens of members in the audience who have a dead relative by that name. Saying it is someone whose name starts with "M" or "J" is another trick since there are so many common English names that start with those two letters.

Well he wrote The Possum Book of Practical Cats, which isn't so much a story as a series of rhymes. Nearly all of the lyrics in Cats are taken verbatim from said book of poems. I think it's a stretch to say that Webber wrote Cats. It's definitely a collaborative effort. Almost like Gilbert without Sullivan.

I wonder how many people picture the 36-30 line when talking about the Mason Dixon line. I bet you ask the average person to draw the Mason-Dixon, they would draw the border between Kentucky/Tennessee and Virginia/North Carolina. It's purpose wasn't to divide the North and South. It was just to settle a land dispute between Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia well before the Missouri Compromise. The 36-30 line was actually drawn with the exact purpose to separate the North from the South, but yet it doesn't get a cool name. Funny how history remembers certain things that otherwise should be completely forgotten...like the efforts of two surveyors in the 1760s.

I visualized the Pennsylvania-Maryland border on I-81, jus a bit north of Hagerstown. Crossed it there many times.

Those lines seemed to be rallying cries back then - I remember learning about James K. Polk's slogan that unexpectedly won him the presidency, "Fifty four forty or fight!" He was promising to take the entire Oregon country (and other places) from British control, which would have given the US much of British Columbia. Eventually both sides compromised at the 49th parallel, the current US-Canadian border. Mason-Dixon seems easier to remember than those degree and minute border lines.

Quizzes on this site never need capitals. Your problem is probably spelling it "Women" instead of "Woman".
