Anyone is welcome to pose the questions while I’m blogging lighter.

    1. Caribbean, sort of up and out a bit I think.
    2. Elizabeth 1 presumably.
    3. No alcohol.
    4. Don’t know but I’ll run with Virginia Wolfe.
    5. Hmm tricky. High Chaparral and Bonanza.

    1. They, along with the leeward and some others for the edge of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean so the answer has to be the Caribbean.

    2. Having a good friend who is a resident in Richmond, the capital and having been there a few times, I had asked about the origin of the name and there is some division on it. Many think that it was named by Raleigh in honour of Elizabeth 1 but others thing it comes from an local Indian word “Wingina”.

    3. Non alcoholic drink

    4. Germaine Greer

    5. Bonanza and Gunsmoke
