Pub quiz night at the Bewildered Gardener - various trivia, some easy-peasy and some that might need Mr Google (after 24 hrs!) smile. Make sure you're all socially-distanced, then we'll start:

-1. What is the Muppets' house band called?
-2. At which battle did Octavian defeat the combined forces of Mark Anthony and Cleopatra in 31 BC?
-3. Ben Cartwright lived at the Ponderosa ranch with his three sons. What were their names?
-4. What nationality was 14th/15th century astronomer Tycho Brahe...?
-5. ... and what was his distinguishing facial feature? think Lee Marvin in Cat Ballou
-6. What were the band of young ruffians and urchins who occasionally helped Sherlock Holmes known as?
-7. How many minutes were missing from the tampered Watergate tape?
-8. How was Manfred von Richtofen known during WWI?
-9. In the US, what was the original name for a cinema?
-10. What is the text of an opera called?
-11. What action can you take to make it impossible for you to hum? (NOT involving surgery!!)
-12. What was the name of Gandalf's horse?
-13. What is the only US state with a Spanish motto?
-14. Which is the largest lake in Canada?
-15. A word mainly used in Australia and New Zealand, what is a "ute"?

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