    1. b–hammock (a process of elimination guess)
    2. a–Hope Diamond
    3. b–Santa Monica
    4. b–five (a wild guess that all were born a bit earlier that ’77)
    5. b–thrasher (another guess, but I know Jefferson was interested in agriculture)
    6. C–Frances (“a grown up name”–I know this movie!)
    7. c–miners (of course–Don’t you remember their little picks on their little shoulders?)
    8. a–The Declaration of Independence is closest (But I believe it is “course of human events”; I could be wrong since I don’t know how the Emancipation Proclamation begins.)
