By George, It’s Next Week!!

Yesterday I wrote a series of absurd questions in preparation or a bi-weekly Zoom quiz with buddies that evening. These three short rounds of five queries covering the arbitrary unrelated topics of adages, old time singer/actor George Formby and icon of 1980’s kid’s TV Metal Mickey. These rounds of fictional inquiries written with tongue lodged…

Quiz Night Revelry

Yesterday evening I was one of six fellas fortunate enough to partake in a highly entertaining bi-weekly Zoom quiz. This gig involving buddies who, like myself, were raised in the south Gateshead suburb of Low Fell. Three of our number (including GJ Strachan) moving away from the area decades ago – The other trio remaining…

Back On The Horse

After a few months sabbatical from bi-weekly Zoom quiz nights with buddies from Gateshead, yesterday evening it was good to remount that inquisitorial challenge horse. Yours truly’s reasons for a hiatus not borne from diminished brio from previous attendance at these fun-filled clambakes. Moreover, GJ Strachan’s dark mood consequential of prevailing familial events during the…

Kane & Fable

Regular readers of my blogs may, or may not, be aware that I’m a regular listener to talkSport…… Actually, thinking about it, you don’t have to a regular reader to may or may not know…… It’s binary, so it goes without saying you either know or you don’t…….. Anyhow, in digress…… Listening to talkSport means…

Once There Was A Way…..

Yesterday, the seemingly endless late spring rain relented for long enough to allow yours truly to experience the verve resultant from cooking alfresco. Not to mention, enjoying an hour or so of even tide fresh air where I languished in front of a wood burning chiminea with vino in hand and bluetooth speaker playing The…

1970’s Sitcoms – True of False

Yesterday evening I partook in the latest bi-weekly online quiz night with buddies. A few hours where seven guys, parted by miles and coronavirus, tested each others general knowledge to within an inch of its life. In the process, creating an inquisitorial fun fest which’d make even the most curmudgeonly soul grin. Our motley crew…

What Would Terry Thomas Say?

I spend an hour or so yesterday evening attempting to develop a new idea for next weeks online quiz night with the lads. Endeavouring to move away from my usual ‘True or False’ rounds, at least in the short term, I’m working on a round format titled ‘What Would Terry Thomas Say?“ Although slightly less…

1970’s/80’s Adverts – True of False

As I’ve been otherwise engaged building a patio set and a new barbecue grill, I’ve not had an opportunity to compose today’s narrative. Fear not, though, hold that hate mail and don’t put your reading gigs back in their case just yet, as in lieu of a blog I’ve forwarded the questions I wrote from…
