8/10 in the Herald’s history quiz.


Melbourne Cup picks

November 6, 2018

It’s Melbourne Cup day.

My picks, based on total ignorance of form are:

1:  (because I know the owners):
7

Who Shot Thebarman (NZ) (18)

 

2: (because the jockey is in blue):

1

Best Solution (IRE) (6)

3: (because the jockey is in Otago colours – blue and yellow).

Marmelo (GB) (10)

The field and form are here


12/14

12/14 in this French test – given how rusty the slight grasp I have on that language is, the test must be pretty simple.

How’s your English grammar?

Your English level has reached extraordinary heights. No one can compete with you.

A reflection on the simplicity of the exercises rather than my grasp of grammar.


8/10

August 19, 2018

8/10 in an old (2010 but I stumbled across it today) Stuff farming quiz.

The racing question was one I got wrong.

I include racing stories in rural round-ups because it’s rural, but is it farming?


Can you identify these flowers?
