Oh dear, I now have to go "up North" to visit my mother on Thursday and I won't be back until Saturday. Unfortunately she doesn't have broadband so I won't be able to run a quiz from there.  Options are:

1) we all have a rest  from quizzing on Friday and I run my quiz on the 22nd.

2) Some kind person steps into the breach with a quiz they have already prepared.

3) Some kind person steps into the breach and runs my quiz, which I can e-mail to them, if they can pm me their e-mail address. 

If we have any volunteers for options 2 or 3, can you please make yourselves known via PM ? If not, we are stuck with Option 1, I'm afraid.

Sorry about that but it can't be helped.

Steve

Happy to do my quiz next week, now that I am back in the land of the living, or at least those of the living with internet access. 

Thanks again Paul for filling the breach.

Hmmm. Famous Tims. The only one that comes to mind is Tim Nice-But-Dim off Harry Enfield.  Isn't Roald Dahl that Indian lentil soup?  I'll get my coat now.

so after getting far too many points in the star trek round and gaining a bonus point for loyalty by answering Timbo to all of the questions in the Tim's round it falls to me to be question master for this Fridays quiz.

after racking my grey cells for some topics I have settled on the following

Round 1 Nursery ryhmes

round 2 - Out of this world

Round 3 - Royalty

mid quiz break 

Round 4 - watching the detectives

Round 5 - science fiction authors

and round 6 - leftovers (or all those questions I couldnt fit into the rounds above)

as usual the quiz will be in the chat room at 8.30pm Friday
