BBC Quiz of the Week


An interesting week in which the phones have been off for much of the time. Our only contact with the outside world has been by email or a dodgy satellite phone.

Our water is failing its purity tests so there are problems in that area as well. And just this morning one of our generators died. This could lead to a domino effect and drop our power supply right out. So if I disappear, that is probably the reason.

Added to this is the birth of the first cyclone of the season north of Australia. This could come in our direction in around a week.

It was good to see Bloglily drop in with a respectable score. Unfortunately it seems that Seville is a news-free zone as Az has bottomed out again with 1/7.

This week my score again totaled 4/7. Lately I am barely passing!

How will you go in this week’s BBC Quiz of the Week?

Good luck.

BBC Quiz of the Week


Another busy week but this time I had some health to help fight the good fight. We have our State Governor (head of state under QE2) visiting our small community next week so we are flat out getting things into some semblance of tidiness.

Last week we saw Daddy P and Sandy share the dunce’s cap with 2/7 while Rob and the GitWizard topped the class with 6/7.

This week I fluked a 5/7 which seems quite reasonable until I admit to knowing only two of the answers.

So how will you go in this week’s BBC News Quiz of the Week.

An URTI is not fun.

I have been trying to post this all day but I have not been able to sit up straight for any length of time.

So I will catch up with all the awards next week.

This week I scored 2/7 which pretty well matches my ability at the moment.

So how will you go in this week’s BBC News Quiz of the Week.

BBC Quiz of the Week


It seems that last week’s quiz was Ladies Day.

Sledpress scored an enthusiastic 6/7 while silverstar and magic hands both bottomed out with 2/7. (Does my bottom look big with this score?)

Me?

This week I managed to scrape a pass with 4/7 but I’m not proud of myself.

So, how will you go? I do know that many more than the dozen and a half regulars who actually play the quiz game actually drop in. How about having a go?

We are of course, talking about the The BBC News Quiz of the Week.

BBC Quiz of the Week


Magic Hands won another crown last week while the gitwizard and Daddy P share the cap having  – I was going to say “failed miserably” but they both seem far too cheerful about the result.

Me?

I’m in the middle of a bad run and scored 3/7 this week. If I am not careful I shall be sitting on that chair in the corner.

We are of course, talking about the The BBC News Quiz of the Week.

BBC Quiz of the Week


A completely mixed result this week.

Another Queen of the Quiz with Buff scoring 7/7

A number of 3/7’s but the surprise was the 2/7 scored by last week’s Queen, hmh.

I  am right in the middle again this week, scoring 4/7.

How will you go?

BBC Quiz of the Week


Whew, despite having to fly on Friday the thirteenth, I successfully made it down to Pert for a week’s R&R.

So here I am, out of touch for a couple of days and I still managed to get 5/7.

The rest of you should do better than that :)

Last week silverstar was bottom of the class with just 2/7 while I, surprised but still gleeful, claimed my first crown and I will not say anything about the fact that six of my answers were guesses.

Now is your chance to test your knowledge of world events. Are you a monarch or a jester?
