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.

  1. Still better than me, I got only 3.


  2. ‘Tis snowing here tonight, and our electricity and telephones are in perfect working order. Although, recent reports suggest that Albertan’s have been using record amounts of electricity. The situation won’t be helped much with forecast weekend HIGHS of -30 C.

    I was looking over the dunce list and slightly alarmed at the recurrence rate of “Rob”. Not this week, however, as …

    You got 4 right!

    With my record that “barely a pass”, based on “educated” guesses is something I’ll surely take!


  3. You got 0 right!

    It’s lonely down here without you, Rob… 😦


  4. All the bestest people get 4/7 so I decided to join them ………..


  5. 6 right -good guesses some..

    BBC loves Obamination I see


  6. i agree with daddy papersurfer

    4/7 for me!


  7. az – you saved me! I got a pathetic 2/7 but not quite as pathetic as….


  8. Am I really the only one who watches SBS News? This was all on their broadcasts this week … but I missed the Obama one … I said Kenya. Well, it was logical!

    You got 6 right!


  9. If you are barely passing I guess I am not. I got three right this week. I’ve been baking cookies. Sorry. News pales in the face of seasonal baking.


  10. one
