Daily Quiz anyone?
If you are stuck at home and bored like me.
How about exercising the old grey cells?

I have for a number of years run quiz nights and couple of times a year. I was due to do one tomorrow which is now cancelled So I have a bank of questions sitting in my computer's hard drive. They are quite eclectic in their nature.

I am thinking I could put up a set of questions for which you write down your answers. After 30mins or so I will put up the answers. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. before I post the right answers.

You mark your own answers and post your score.

I will then record the scores and at the end of the "lockdown" we will see who is WHO's brainbox supreme. Obiviously no looking up the answers (you only cheat yourselves)

Word of warning these won't be easy questions as they have been devised for teams of six. Forming teams on here might be too problematic. So I'll try to pick out the easier questions.

Any interest?

"Don't read autobiographies" Huh?

Try "Life" by Keith Richards. He's mad as a box of acelots, granted, but it's unbelievable reading. And no doubt all actually true.

Hi all sorry I am running late today. A 40mins bookcase assembly not going to plan. Mis-aligned dowel holes and poor instructions have taken most of the morning.

Anyway scores on your children's books was ok.

Agree with MadDog. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory... or maybe James And The Giant Peach. Can't believe the BFG sold more.

What is WRONG WITH PEOPLE? :-)

Chose wrong books. Best-selling and best is always a problem.

5. Although I did have the hunger games for 2,4,8 & 9 as I assumed it would be on the list and had no idea who wrote it or who those 4 authors are.

I assumed Charlie and the chocolate factory would be dahl's biggest hit
