Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” ?

2.  Which was Margaret Mahy’s first published book?

3. It’s amitié in French, amicizia in Italian, amistad in Spanish and whanaungatanga in Maori, what is it in english?

4. Who is the longest serving Prime Minister in the Pacific, and from which country?

5. Who won New Zealand’s 100th Olympic medal and in which sport ?

Points for answers:

I found three sources for the quote but Deborah’s, Rob’s and Grant’s answers seem more likely so I’m allowing them.

Deborah got four and a bonus for wit.

Andrei got 1 1/2.

Rob got 2 1/2 with a bonus for humour.

IHS got one.

Grant got four and a bonus for lateral thinking.

Deborah and Grant both get an electronic carrot cake – with cream cheese icing.

Am tpying this at 7:50, if you answered after that you’ll have to award your own points.

Answers follow the break:

1. Albert Camus.

2. A Lion in the Meadow

3. Friendship

4. Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, Samoa. (In the news alst week when the PM was there).

5.  Peter Burling and Blair Tuke, sailing (49 class). (Isn’t fame fleeting? On the day they won it most of us didn’t know their names).

    Thank you! I love carrot cake.

    Thanks for the cake.
    Camus has always intrigued me as a person, and his rejection of the extremes of left and right- his willingness to stand against the tyranny of the left in the 60s and his fighting in the resistance [unlike Sartre] against the fascists make him one of the heroes of modern France.
    I really don’t think that it was him. It does sound Gandhian, but mine was a guess.
