I'm w/ joannev. I only got 1/2 of them, although it's a good thing you added the disclaimer. The answers to #'s 7, 10 and 14 are incorrect, and in my area # 23 is 8.

P.S. I am female and am looking at the blouse I have on. Buttons are on my LEFT side. I guess it would be Right if you were looking at the person. Which is why they are that way. Most people are right handed, and the aristocrats had maids to help them dress.
