Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said: All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his. ?

2.  To whom did Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert become parents?

3. It’s fille  in French,  figlia in Italian,  hija in Spanish and tamāhine in Maori, what is it in English?

4.  Name three living princesses by birth.

5.  Would you want to/did you know the gender of your children before they’re born?

Points for answers:

Andrei got four.

Alwyn and Teletext win an electronic bunch of sweet peas (the last pick of autumn) with five right.


Amswers follow the break:

1.  Oscar Wilde.

2. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables).

3. Daughter.

4.  Lots to choose from here as the question didn’t specify their country.

5.  I’ve always thought it would be like peeking at your presents before Christmas but maybe that’s because I wasn’t given the optin when I was pregnant.

    I was intrigued by the comment in your “Princess” reference that there are 40 or so monarchies left in the world.
    King Farouk was obviously a bit out when he said, circa 1950,
    “In a few years there will be only five kings in the world the King of England and the four kings in a pack of cards.”

    I dunno alwyn, Farouk had a valid point, Spades Hearts Diamond and Clubs outrank most of them.
    I note Hp’s link missed our own Princess of Cambridge or should that be Huntley in the person off Princess Nanaia.

    That list also omitted My two Princesses so it is very incomplete.
