This week's quiz. It's one day early as Saturday is the yearly family get together when we make 15 metres of Xmas sausage and bake 600 gingerbread biscuits. It requires a fair bit of preparation and planning and I didn't get a lot done today. I did get an awful lot of  snow shovelling done though - 40 cm overnight!

Without further ado, here's the quiz:

  1. Nelson Mandela’s son, Makgatho, died in 2005 from which illness?

  2. USA’s most popular postage stamp was produced in 1993 and 120 million were sold. What was the picture on the stamp?

  3. Which dinosaur had the smallest brain in relation to the size of its body?

  4. In which city can you find the famous street ‘La Rambla’?

  5. According to The Animals, where was The House of the Rising Sun?

  6. What term do we use to describe the disintegration of a nuclear reactor?

  7. What do we call a female ferret?

  8. In which group of islands is Iona situated?

  9. What shape is the body of a balalaika?

  10. ½ ÷ ½ = ?

  11. Who sailed around the world on The Endeavour?

  12. On which horse did Willie Carson win the 1989 Derby?

 

I’ll bet you didn’t know ….

The average pencil will write 50,000 words before running out.

... Now that's what you call 'having lead in your pencil'-

 

Answers on Thursday next week.

Cl, I won't be doing any seasonal baking this year but I have done LOTS of snow moving, 4-5 times at 30-40 cm and lots of smaller dumps, but it's the wind/drifting I HATE! I also do two neighbours and the sister-in-laws driveways, I love my snow blower!

Thats quite a task you have coming up this weekend, but with family around it has to be magic precious times!

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
