What A team persona has just been for a long ride
Davide Nicola, serie A manager cycled the length of Italy!
Yes ...and why?
But over to you dave
Because his team avoided relegation!
Which country has the most universities in the world?
I think my favourite cartoon dog went to one of them - B.H. (Calcutta) Failed.
Well that didn't take long! Most people quote USA which has the most top-ranked unis inthe world but overall, India has nearly 3000 more!
All yours BB
What Monty Python-esque decision did the British government make in 1942 to help their soldiers?
Either they told them that the holy grail was in Berlin or........they bought all of the World's tea supplies to England (apparently not Japanese tea, but all others) in order to keep up morale.
The latter it is...
Not only did drinking tea remind the soldiers of home, it also masked the taste of water that had been transported in old oil drums...
Over to you.
Cheers BB. Who apparently caused a stir in the House of Commons by vomiting during a speech by a Conservative MP ?
Was it David Blunkett?
Was he blind drunk?
Very close Yorkie !!
It was his guide dog I think.
All yours Frenchie - sorry Yorkie you were so close. It was indeed Lucy a black collie cross who vomited during a speech from Tory MP. David Willetts, to great mirth from the back benches. On another occasion a new guide dog actually led him to the Conservative benches.
Who received £37,000 for her poetry?
A Rushed Account of the Dew
I who can blink
to break the spell of daylight
and what a sliding screen between worlds
is a blink
I who can hear the last three seconds in my head
but the present is beyond me
in this tiny moment of reflexion
I want to work out what it’s like to descend
out of the dawn’s mind
and find a leaf and fasten the known to the unknown
with a liquid cufflink
and then unfasten
to be brief
to be almost actual
oh pristine example
of claiming a place on the earth
only to cancel
Beautiful..... Alice Oswald
Quite correct Yorkie. She won the International Griffin poetry prize for her collection Falling Awake.
That didn't last long. Over to you.
