BBC Quiz of the Week

This week I took a walk through the Heritage Precinct in Perth where a lot of the buildings are being preserved and plaques setting out a short history of each building is attached. So a week of Old Buildings is coming up on A Bit of Perth.

In other news, I cleaned the car. Then it rained!

Some interesting links;

Sea Shepherd E-Newsletter

Second-best Headline

Sweden vs. Assange

Quote of the week;

“I’m not a meteorologist. All I know is 90 percent of the scientists say climate change is occurring. If 90 percent of the oncological community said something was causing cancer we’d listen to them.”  ~~ Jon Huntsman, in an interview with Time, on whether he believes in climate change.

Seen on Twitter;

I’m trying to be an optimist but things aren’t looking good.

Sometimes I’d like to conduct my Internet browsing over the telephone and not have to stare at a screen.

Last Week

Despite doubling her score from the week before, Azahar again won the hat. In other news, Dinahmow won a crown while a high average score was had by most.  🙂

  1. Mrs Palin let me down. 6/7


  2. Today I live in hope – 1/7.


  3. You have scored 4/7

    *passes hat to Daddy P*


  4. Just to prove my ongoing stupidity, 3/7.


  5. Oh dear – almost-hero to almost-zero – 2/7 for me this week…


  6. I can’t! – 2/7. Clearly it’s been too many weeks since the dunce cap last graced my melon. Oh, but looking up, I see that I have been saved by Daddy P. Bravo, sir!

    Note that the two I got correct were ones I actually knew.

    Have a great weekend everyone!


  7. 6/7 … and the one I got wrong? The silly, stupid sausage one … I never believed “he’d” have even /thought/ of doing something like that so I didn’t think it could be “him”” wot said that! Fancy! Maybe it /is/ something in that position


  8. 2/7 I was saddened to learn that the Royal newlyweds travel with a hair stylist rather than a speecwriter. Oh well. Silly me to expect less shallowness.
