Tyke, one of our previous mods, started these longer ago than I care to remember.

Pub quiz night at the Bewildered Gardener - various trivia, some easy-peasy and some that might need Mr Google (after 24 hrs!) smile.

Fill your glasses, open up another packet of pork scratchings, and off we go:

-1. What order of mammals includes monkeys, apes and man?
-2. Which city hosted the 1992 Olympics?
-3. The Elgin marbles, now in the British Museum, were originally taken from which building?
-4. The Crazy Horse Memorial is in which US state?
-5. In the 1930s the American company Bally were foremost in developing which sort of recreation device?
-6. Which UK patron saint does not have his flag as part of the Union Jack...?
-7. ...and to even it up, how many versions of the US flag have there been...?
-8. ... and just so Koala doesn't feel left out, what is the large star on the Australian flag known as?
-9. In 1985, Greg Le Mond was the first non-European to win which annual sporting event?
-10. What are the first names of the pop duo The Carpenters?
-11. Name the musical instrument where the volume and pitch are controlled by moving the player's hands close to two metal antennae
-12. Florence Nightingale achieved her fame during which war?
-13. What religion celebrates Navaratri?
-14. Laverbread is a Welsh delicacy made from what?
-15. Who is the patron saint of travellers?
-16. What does a galvanometer measure?



To waste one second of one's life is a betrayal of one's self.

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
