Quiz name?

_20200516_225119

I’m part of a quiz team which is meeting online for the first time, and we need to decide on a name for us.

It’s complicated because the team will be videoconferencing and texting at the same time… Technology. As they say its a steep learning curve.

Then of course there’s the questions. I think there might be a theme to them. When I went to a ‘real life’ quiz run by the same people the theme was seasonal. I don’t have a clue about the questions. As long as they are not music or sports based.

So wish us luck and hopefully by Monday we’ll have a name.

Quiz

What a long day…

After a bad night’s sleep I was involved in helping at the quiz to raise funds for the Penkhull mystery day in July this year.

Over seventy people came to the quiz in the village hall. It was fun. For once the splits in politics were put on the back burner and we just had to concentrate on the answers to the questions.

I can’t remember them, but I do remember some of the answers (we didn’t get them all right).

Lithium,

Henry VI,

Blue Peter,

Usain Bolt,

Coventry City,

Nepal and China.

I’ll let you guess what the questions were. They were grouped in subjects like highest, longest, biggest……..

There were chip butties in the break, a bar, and a raffle. Basically it was a good laugh…

I am a local artist in Stoke-on-Trent and about 11 or 12 years ago I painted a series of murals in the Bennett suite at the Leopard Hotel in Burslem. Recently my paintings have appeared on a book, on Midlands Today a BBC local TV channel, the Sentinel newspaper and on a ghost hunting website. All without my permission. I hold the copyright for the images and I would like people to contact me if they wish to use them. The image is my painting of my painting of the Burslem Riot of 1842. I’ve contacted the people who used them but only one has responded so I have given her retrospective permission. What can I do?

The gargoyle.

He sits quietly in a laurel bush, watching, seeing who enters the garden. The stone gargoyle. Winged, large ears turned to listen. How did he get there? Did he climb or fly? How does he stay there, no nails or glue support him. Does he protect or reject visitors to His garden? Stone carved and muscular. Is he hiding from gargoyle hunters, who stalk the suburbs and smash his unsuspecting siblings?

What are you, fiend from a nightmare or friend from a mediaeval church? Like an escaped pigeon, sitting in the laurel bush, waiting for his lost love.

What is this e-mail?

I have had an e-mail of WordPress.com from something called ICANN. I have no idea what it is about, it says something about the GDPR, about new rules on data protection.

I have not clicked on any links in case it is a phishing exercise. I have checked my anti virus and that seems OK.

Has anyone had anything similar.

I only use my own artwork. All the writing is my own. I don’t collect people’s ems addresses. I have already stated I the past that I am complying with GDPR.

I now intend to contact WordPress to ask them to explain what it is about.

If you have any information please let me know?
