By jazzman
June 8 2017

We're currently in the Close Season lull & in need of articles to keep our licence to operate the site. Many thanks therefore go to poster "jazzman" for putting together a Quiz! There's no prizes for: 1. Getting all the answers right 2. Being the first to post all the answers 3. Working "Jim & Nobby must go" into an answer. To allow everyone to have a think, I'd suggest no-one posts any answers until 00.01am on Thursday 15th June. That of course doesn't mean you can't mislead people & "discuss" NB: If anyone doubts anyone's intelligence there will be an instant ban ;-)

Odd one out & why?

  1. Arm, Electric, League, Push, Rocking, Vice, Wheel.
  2. Art, Dog, Free, Halfway, Public, Publishing, Rose.
  3. Dance, Glass, Ground, Ocean, Second, Shop, Trading.

That is Magic.. What four words precede

Keep going! I've got only one of those so far.

'Odd one out & why' I've got them all.

'Your round' I haven't the foggiest.

'What links' and I'm baffled.

'Read it? Whose works include:-' I have at least 2 out of 3.

'Location, Location' is easy once you get the link.

'Musically what kind of plant is usually seen in two forms' I have no idea even of how to approach.

'That is Magic.. What four words precede' is the same.

'Shaping up to...' I've got.

'Every which way' I again have no idea about.

And 'Finally' is straightforward enough.

Ooo I like this quiz and those of Old Pete too.

Can I suggest that this and future ones are made 'stickies' before they disappears down the page?

Interestingly I have found most of it relatively easy, some I haven't got though.

I guess it is how you see things, a bit like doing a Sudoku, you can't see a solution and when you go back 10 minutes later it is obvious.

Clever question that,first letter of each world spells

MERLO? so we were looking for a drink beginning with 'T' Tequila or Tea even I guess would have been acceptable.

Well I assume that is what we should have been looking for, but could be just a coincidence!
