Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.”?

2. Who wrote Black Beech and Honeydew  and Died In The Wool?

3. It’s chemin in French, strada  in Italian, camino in Spanish and rori  in Maori, what is it in English?

4. Do you understand the give-way rules and are they an improvement on the old ones?

5. Marmite or vegemite?

Points for answers:

Alwyn wins an electronic batch of biscuits of her choice with five right and a bonus for extra information.

PDM got two and a bonus for deduction.

Adam got three – though I’ll give a fourth if  he has a source for Swift rather than Lewis for #1.

Grant got four with a bonus for extra information and the smile.

Teletext also wins an electronic batch of baking of her/his choice with five right and a bonus for the names rather than initials.

Gravedodger got four with a bonus for remembering fifth form English.

 

1. C.S. Lewis.

2. Dame Ngaio Marsh.

3. Road.

4. Yes & yes.

5. Vegemite, very thinly spread, though I’ll accept marmite if there’s no choice.

  1. Alwyn says:

    Alwyn thinks the biscuits are very nice.
    Incidentally though Alwyn is a he. Alwyn is, although uncommon, normally a boys name.

    Alwyn – apologies for changing your gender. the only Alwyn I’ve known is a she.

    Adam – I Googled and couldn’t find an attribution to Swift but that doesn’t mean he didn’t say it first.

  4. adam says:

    Unable to find any thing concrete. Just the name came to mind first 🙂
