BBC Quiz of the Week

Not a lot happened for me this week.

The highlight? A  drive over and around the lake, into some of the country which has rarely been visited by white men. There is talk of creating a tourist trail into this area with some of the oldies telling the stories associated with the landmarks and clay pans.

And so to this week’s quiz. Last week We had sixes from azahar, The eaGle (His Grey Eminence) and Bunk. We had a record low in “Under 4/7’s” this week And Daddy P and Puddock (who is neglecting her pond in the blogipelago) were saved from the hat by Sandy’s 2/7.

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

Me? A feeling of panic ensued as I realised I had no idea of any one of the questions. I was lucky to get 3/7.

  1. I was lucky to get 3 right also, although I did know the Sarkozy one and the German question. The rest were guesses and I didn’t guess very well, either. Oh well.
