Wow, that's weird, rgc1600...we must have been typing at the same time. I didn't see your reply until after I typed mine. And what does is say about Cypress Hill that we both put the word song in scare quotes?

Can someone save me a trip to Google and explain the Andrew Jackson - Hickory as well as George Washington - Cherry answers please? I suspect it's another case of not being an American counting against me. Although i'm also completely lost by Blue and Spruce. Lol

I did not do well. I couldn't get Australian trees and street names out of my head. A lot more eucalyptus (or gum), and a lot more tropical and rainforest trees - palms, coconuts, banana, tree fern, wattle, shea-oak, pandanus, quandong, fig, bougainvillea, hibiscus, jacaranda...
