This Month's Fun Quiz for you – made up by moi!

It's the last Monday of the month so it's Quiz time.

It's very low tech – there are just 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 December's 10 questions for you

1      Jakarta is the capital of Malaysia – true or false?
False Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia

2      Who said this?
        Mother Teresa is said to have said this

3      What is the capital of New Zealand?
        Wellington – it's not the biggest city but it is the capital – which is a bit strange since it is also sitting right on a big earthquake fault lin.

4      How many hits by Dusty Springfield can you name?  Try for more than 5
Wishin' and Hopin', You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, The Look of Love, Son of a Preacher Man, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, Breakfast in Bed, Nothing Has Been Proved, Anyone Who Had a Heart, That's What Friends Are For, Willie and Laura Mae Jones, That Ol' Sweet Roll, You Don't Own Me

9      How many episodes of Fawlty Towers were ever made?
