Me too but mine were impacted so I had them out in hospital. Many a funny story there but not for the forum

Q230. What is another name for a German Shepherd dog?
Alsatian (and I still call them that).

Q231. What is the common name given to the 3rd molar teeth?
Wisdom (many people do not get them until their 20s, but I had mine through -
and out – when I was 14. Apparently due to the amount of antibiotics I had
to take – in particular, Tetracycline, which also discolours them – grrrr).

Q232. Which is the smallest British bird?
Goldcrest (for years I thought it was the wren, but as the question commonly
crops up in quizzes, I now know better).

Thanks for the Soft Cell video @Coolonespa. I can ‘name that tune’ after the first two notes of this song in our local pub quiz.

Q230. What is another name for a German Shepherd dog?
Alsation

Q231. What is the common name given to the 3rd molar teeth?
Wisdom. I had mine removed in my 20s – very painful.

Q232. Which is the smallest British bird?
The goldcrest, so named because of its golden mohican – I’m an avid birder and lucky enough to have these cuties in the woodland area of my back garden. The firecrest with its splendid orange mohican is a tiny bit bigger and less common whilst the ubiquitous wren – commonly thought of as the smallest British bird – is actually the third smallest both by weight and wingspan. However, the wren does hold the record of being the most common British bird. It’s also a surprisingly raucous little tweeter!

Not sure, one of the Crest variety possibly.

Well done, 100% across the board.

Frustrating consequence of the pandemic that hasn’t had much airtime in the media. A friend of mine has a place in Portugal & one in Italy. He’s predicting having to spent a huge amount of time getting them back to where he wants them when he can get out there.

our water is very hard
Ours too

When I moved from Essex which is ‘hard’ to S Yorkshire which is ‘soft’ I was amazed by the difference. Suddenly just a tiny amount of shampoo foamed and bubbled and my kettle has never needed descaling.

Q227. Which “S” is the American word used for an academic term?
Semester – my eldest son works at UCSB

Q228. “Tainted Love” was a hit song for which ’80s band?
Soft Cell – one of my fave raves from the 80s; lead singer Marc Almond. I’ll be singing that one today.

Q229. Which African country is further north – Senegal or Egypt?
It’s got to be Egypt – Senegal completely surrounds The Gambia on the West Coast and is on the bulge of the elephant’s ear (or am I the only one that thinks Africa looks like an elephant? My husband had never seen Wales as a pig’s head or Italy as a boot until I pointed it it!).

You both got the first 2 right (well done) but the correct answer for Dolly was 1997 (very close Gill)

Q224. What name is given to cheaply made westerns, filmed in Italy or Spain?
Spaghetti Westerns (most of them were filmed in the Tabernos Desert which
is about an hour and a half’s drive from us, and many of the lots were preserved
and are now tourist attractions).

Q225. What type of water does not form an immediate lather with soap – hard or soft?
Hard (our water is very hard and full of cal which builds up huge deposits in a
very short time).

Q226. In which year was the clone “Dolly the Sheep” born?
Not certain, but I think it was about 10 years or so after we moved to Wales
so will guess at 1996
