Yes Grendel  

Forgot to warn the poor man about all the teddy throwing.

I usually have two windows open and cut and paste the questions from ms word.

Trying to keep up with the scores is always fun and like you I resort to the pen and paper.

The only mistake you made in your first quiz Grendel was to set a round of Arthur Ransome questions on the assumption that I would not be there.

Dont worry Stuey, as has been said we all will be patient and helpful.  

The quiz is more of a social event than a serious thing.

All the best

Arthur

Well you lot will be pleased to know that you will avoid the usual evisceration on Friday because I am down on the boat (and for the next three weekends. Yipee!!)
However in my absence I have decided to set up an intuitive website that will allow those of err emm … well  lesser intellectual abilities to avail themselves with a ready resource that will assist them to succeed in the Quiz.

If enough of you are foolish (sorry sensible !!) enough to log onto the site below it will guarantee you success ( given my invaluable experience of winning the quiz  with monotonous regularity) in finishing in the top three of the Quiz  on every Wednesday until 2022.

www.norfolkbroadsforumquizbuster@fiddlingfatlads.com

I must warn you however, that this is a subscription only site with proceeds going to a local newt sanctuary and not, I hasten to add as some bandits and former girly swots claim, to assist in my down payment for a Broom 30 Coupe this Saturday!!

I am still smirking at the idea of you going down Hessle Road for food!  I think it's sustenance of another sort that particular right of way is famous for...

I'll be there for the quiz if I can, but what with the dentist AND the packing, may not be able to stay for the whole of it.

All the best Stuey, I've done it a couple of times and it still makes me nervous!

Its possible it could have been carpets he was after...I
once had to go down Hessle Road and noticed a shop called
'Honest John's Carpets'. How honest he was I don't
know...to be honest, in my honest opinion never buy
anything from someone who styles themselves 'honest'. A
bit like the guy who tends to call himself a 'bit of a
party animal', invariable they are not.

He's fallen in the water!

Thanks for a good quiz, Stuey, great first try. Sorry I had to leave in the middle, else I would have won. Look out for that airborne piggy! Playful

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

Well that’s it, how low can a man get? Not content in stuffing me in the quiz every week Mike has heaped ignominy upon ignominy and left my dignity in tatters by assuming the last title that I have left.

Yes I am no longer the “Norfolk Broads Forum Fat Lad of the Year  2012” and have had to hand the baton on to a more substantial character whose girth quite frankly, must have Mr Blobby scrabbling for the diet books!!

Yes I met Mike for the first time in the flesh (and there is plenty of that!!) at an impromptu barbeque on Lisa,s boat at Brooms  last night and what a lovely chap and equally lovely partner. A splendid evening was had by all (despite the fact that the hostess was hammered by 7 pm and the meat content of the said barbeque consisted of one half frozen Chipololata sausage and two Linda McCartney veggie pies!!).

I was just bragging to Lisa how stout I was and showing her my six pack (well a party can of Watneys Red Barrel!!)  when the said Choirmaster stepped onto her lovely vessel.

Alas because of the enormous weight transference the effect on the River Yare was catastrophic and the ensuing Tsunami that hit Norwich 13 seconds later caused utter chaos. In fact the Bishop of Norwich was in the middle of a baptism ceremony at Pulls Ferry when the wave hit and as a result he and the poor babbie were swept into the snug of the nearby Red Lion Pub!!

Lucky lad, how’s that for holy water!!. Two pints of Humpty Dumpty!!

Although several of the regulars in the quiz are away at the C n C there will still be a quiz this Friday provided sufficient members turn up.

In the event that there are not enough people to make it worth running the quiz then it will be postponed until the following week.

Hopefully this will not happen.

Therefore here are the topics:

1.   LET'S GO INTERSTATE    
2.  WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO FLY  
3.  ARTHUR RANSOME



HALF TIME BREAK FOR DRINKS ETC


4.  IT'S NOT ABOUT STINKIES    
5.  LOST RAILWAYS OF BROADLAND    
6.  GENERAL FRIDAY MAYHEM



So get revising and still get the wrong answers.

HINT!   Round 1 is not about the USA.


Hope plenty of people turn up.  Remember the quiz is open to all forum members.

If you have not tried it before why not log into the chatroom at 8.30pm on Friday and join in the fun.

We always welcome new people.

There are no prizes.  The only thing you get if you win is the honour?  of hosting the next weeks quiz and you can always pass that on to someone else if you don't wish to do it.


Friday Night at 8.30 In Chat


All the best

Arthur

Well, I have at last completed a set of questions to match the topics for tomorrow nights quiz.

Hopefully I can get away with a round of Arthur Ransome questions without too many teddies being thrown.

1.   LET'S GO INTERSTATE    
2.  WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO FLY  
3.  ARTHUR RANSOME



HALF TIME BREAK FOR DRINKS ETC


4.  IT'S NOT ABOUT STINKIES
