LAST Week:- A pretty miserable week weatherwise here. It has also been a pretty miserable time for anyone flying. there are now THREE recent plane crashes. In future I will only travel by train or car!

Hats and Crowns:- Magic Hands had a disaster last week and has been rewarded for her 1/7 with a week of hat hair.

THIS Week. Somehow I fluked 5/7 this week. How will you go in this week’s quiz?

Should You Work With People or Things?



You Should Work With Things

You definitely aren’t a misanthrope, but you find people difficult to understand and deal with at times.

You’re much more productive working alone – building systems, analyzing data, or honing your own technique.

No matter what career you choose, you do best in a field where you can be left alone to specialize, tinker, and invent.

A focused, intense person like you would make a great surgeon. Or a fabulous architect. Or a superstar computer programmer.

BBC Quiz of the Week


quiz18

LAST Week:- I went shopping with my grand daughters yesterday and so totally embarrassed them. I found one of those tremblingly terrified doors which has the ‘This door is Alarmed” sign on it. Then I gave it a cuddle to comfort it and explaine dthat things were getting better. The grand daughters tried very hard to ignore me for the rest of the day. If they looked like forgiving me I would innocently say, “But it was so scared!” and that would set them off again  :)

Hats and Crowns:-  A very good effort with low scores of 3/7 yet again mean that the Hat is unemployed this week. DaisyFae almost won a Crown with her 6/7.

THIS Week.  After blowing the first question I scored 4 in a row so was feeling rather good till I flubbed the last two. So that gave me a disappointing 4/7.   How will you score this week?

BBC Quiz of the Week

LAST Week:- Rob commented that he feels a little discouragement with the number of hats he has been getting lately. That caused me to have a look at how long the quiz has been a part of the archive. This is quiz number 345! Nearly 7 years of quizzes and I am amazed that ANYONE has lasted that long. Yet our small group of four have been here since the beginning. Thanks to each of you.  The future? I guess it is yours to decide. I’ll keep it going while you are finding it fun  :)

Hats and Crowns:- Magic Hands won a week with the hat as she was only able to manage 2/7.

THIS Week. I dropped back to 3/7 after getting the first two correct. I thought it was going to be easy but I was wrong – again  :)  How will you score this week?

LAST Week:- A wet week to end the Australian Financial Year. My circadian rhythm has been destroyed by a combination of Brazil World Cup and now Wimbledon Tennis.

Happy Canada Day to any Canadians reading this and, of course, who could forget Independence Day. The day Americans play “Was that a gunshot or a cracker?”  ;)

Hats and Crowns:- Rob managed a hat this week with 2/7.

THIS Week. Somehow I scratched up to 6/7, my best score for months! How will you go this week?

What Sea Person Are You?



You Are a Pirate

Of all the types, you see the sea as a big adventure. You could live out on the ocean.

You aren’t big on following rules – you prefer to live your life on your own terms. You are a free-spirit.

A life of pillage and plunder suits you just fine. You can figure out a way to get by on the high seas.

You are very resourceful and flexible. You are able to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

A pirate’s life is not for everyone, but you would get less lonely than most. The sea would keep you company.

You tend to get annoyed by anyone if you have to spend too much time together. And you wouldn’t hesitate to make troublesome shipmates walk the plank!

THIS Week. I again fluked a 4/7 this week (I’m not sure but I think the last question is messed up)  How will you go this week?

What Should You Keep Calm And Do?



You Should Keep Calm and Carry Om

No matter how bad things get, you try to keep balanced, tranquil, and together.

You believe that having the right headspace is crucial. If you’re head isn’t in the game, you can’t make a play.You think the world would be a better place if we reflected more and reacted less. Not every action deserves a reaction.

You would love to see a more contemplative planet, and you’re doing your part by promoting thoughtfulness in yourself and others.

So when times get tough, lean into yourself even more. You know what to do to stay grounded and sane.

And keep spreading the om (lifeforce and sacredness) on to those around you. You are much more influential than you realize.

Are You a Hippie?



You are a Hippie

You are a total hippie. While you may not wear Birkenstocks or smell of incense, you have the soul of a hippie.

You don’t trust authority, and you do as you please. You’re willing to take a stand, even when what you believe isn’t popular.You like to experiment with ideas, lifestyles, and different subcultures.

You always gravitate toward what’s radical and subversive. Normal, mainstream culture doesn’t really resonate with you.

BBC Quiz of the Week


quiz06

LAST Week:- Back to the long drought for Perth this week. Just because 97% of scientists agree that we humans are a major cause of Climate Change is no reason to believe them. After all we have no faith in the doctors who treat our illnesses, who build our aircraft or who build our computers. This drought has only lasted 25 years so it isn’t as though it is a significant event. Sorry for the rant from a thirsty throat!

Hats and Crowns:- No hats this week. The minimum score was 4/7 which is a definite pass mark  :)

THIS Week. I was able to match last week and scored another  5/7. How will you go in this week’s quiz?
