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.

Previous Dunces.

  1. Another miserable 3, would’ve been 4 but I changed my mind on Q3.


  2. only three for me too


  3. Hope you’re feeling better soon – I also scored 2 with no excuses at all except ignorance ……..


  4. 3


  5. feel better- Someone always puts my name first – yes!! 3 right sandy


  6. Owww, my dear fellow! Is that the same as what we acronymize as UTI in Yankophone countries (hurts to pee)? Can you get your hands on some D-Mannose? Knocks it way down.

    Are you sure you haven’t been too fucking busy and vice versa? That’s how women get them.

    You got 4 right!
    It didn’t occur to me until after I checked my score that Mrs. Clinton might be trying to get rid of Bill.


    • No, No, No … not that sort of infection, sledpress … URTI is Upper Respiratory Tract Infection … UTI is Urinary Tract Infection. At least … he’d better not have a UTI!!!


      • Well men can get them, I hear complaints about it in my practice form time to time. It was the sitting up straight thing that made me think that as UTIs are well known for doubling you over


  7. *SIGH*

    You got 2 right!

    I’m starting to think my string of poor performances on this quiz might be related to the fact that I don’t care much about what’s going on in the world. At least the part that makes it into the mainstream media.


  8. Coming up in the world news knowledge, I got 5 right this week. I’m so glad I did but I’m so sorry you are under the weather, Arch.


  9. You got 4 right!

    Feel better:)


  10. 5/7 for me too!


  11. Where are my manners? Hope you’re feeling better soon Aerchie.

    BTW, you haven’t been to Mexico city lately have you? Sounds like the next pandemic is fixing to kick off from there: pig-bird-human flu. It’s the newest thing.


  12. I wonder if pig-bird-human flu will be on the next BBC quiz of the week? If it is, I might have a chance at getting it right.


  13. You got 5 right!

    Just don’t wear a blue dress if you win the first one, ladies!


  14. You got 2 right!

    Another cosy week under the hat, I see.


  15. 2 for me as well… makes me think that maybe i’ll start reading the news… we’ll see.

    feel better soon!


  16. There seems to be a lot of company in the basement this week. I also got 2 right. I’m afraid that much like Buff, I don’t care what’s going on in the world.

    I hope you feel better, Archie.


  17. I got six out of seven! I tripped up on the question about what book was given to Pres. Obama. I didn’t know and I guessed the dog training manual. Oh well. Better luck next week, I guess.
