A Fun Quiz for you – made up by moi!


And now for something completely different – a Monthly Quiz

I hope you like doing quizzes.  I am starting a monthly quiz – it'll be on the last Monday of each month.  It's very low tech – there'll just be the questions and then underneath each one is the answer – but you won't be able to see it until you highlight that line. 

I hope you enjoy doing it – it's just intended to be a bit of fun.  Let me know if you like it by leaving a little comment – maybe saying how many you got right?

So here are November's 10 questions for you

  4. OK. I got partial points for the Von Trapps and Henry VIIIs wives, missing one each. Other than that I only got three correct. Sigh.
