Senile Delinquent


A 71-year-old British pensioner has been fined more than $4,000 for rollerblading through a town square.

Geoff Dornan was caught on closed-circuit television rollerblading through the main street in Ormskirk, Lancashire.

The local council told the court that his skating was a nuisance and a danger to the public.

In his defence, the pensioner said he took up rollerblading seven years ago as a way of keeping fit.

He insisted that he always gave right of way to pedestrians.

But he was found guilty of contravening a by-law that forbids skating in the main street and was fined and ordered to pay costs worth $4,700.

This could well appear in the BBC Quiz this week, so take the time to remember the details.

Another BBC Quiz


Here is another quiz published by the BBC.

I scored 3/7.

Not that there will be any score keeping with this one.

Have a go, just for fun.

BBC Quiz of the Week


A week is such a short time when you are having fun.

Often we forget to look at the wider world and so we have no idea how other people have been entertaining themselves.

So did you spare enough time this week to be able to score a few points on the BBC Quiz of the Week

I scored 5/7 so I think I am free of the dreaded dunces cap for another seven days.

I know there are a lot of lurkers out there who have a go at this quiz and never report their results. Why not break with tradition this week and make a comment?
