Little Women (One of my favourite books, as I can read it time and again – with a few years break inbetween.
The opening line is “Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents”. and that often featurs in quizzes as to
from which book it comes).

Huh? Sports questions………………..aaaagh!

Now listen very carefully, Steve, I shall say this only once. In the film ‘Oklahoma!’ a man wooed a girl
with the promise of taking her out in his ‘posh’ carriage called a Surrey and he extolled the virtues of his
‘Shiny Little Surrey With A Fringe on the Top’. In true male fashion, he turned up in a clapped out, dirty,
dusty wagon.

Q239. Which plant is the source of the cloth, linen?
Flax fibres. (Not my ideal material as it creases if you so much as look at it).

Owl (Pre Harry Potter, here! She died aged 90 after spending the last 52 years of her life in bed!).

Q241. Which “Q” are Christians who gather in a place of worship called a “Meeting House”?
Quakers (they of oat fame!).
