Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who said: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. “?
2. Who composed The Four Seasons?
3. It’s espoir in French, speranza in Italian, esperanza in Spanish and manawa ora in Maori, what is it in English?
4. What was a tamarillo’s former name?
5. Where (more or less) does the 45th parallel cross State Highway 1?
Points for answers:
PDM got one and a bonus for honesty – though he didn’t look closely enough because as Raymond points out Cromwell though at a similar latitude isn’t on SH 1.
Andrei got four and a near-enough since I did say more or less for #5 which earns an electronic batch of muffins.
Raymond got three with a bonus for being specific about #5 (local knowledge helps).
Cadawallader also got three and a bonus for being specific.
Paul got three, a not quite near enough (on the wrong side of the Waitaki) a bonus for wit and yes I got it.
Adam got three and a bonus for the E (which prompted me to check my spelling).
I had allocated marks last night, knowing I’d be at the Bookarama all day and therefore missed Gravedodger’s and Mort’s asnwers:
GD got four right (it would be a very brisk walk) with a bonus for listening ot SWMBO.
Mort got five right which earns an electronic batch of muffins too.
Answers follow the break:
1. Albert Einstein.
4. Tree tomato.
5. Between Hilderthorpe and Pukeuri, north of Oamaru and on the right side of the Waitaki River.
