The Great 2016 Beyond the Sphere Trivia Quiz

Just a bit of fun to end the year, and to see if you can remember any of the posts that I’d actually forgotten about myself! Well, it has to be done. Answers will be revealed next year. Hehehe!

  • A new part of the Mansion appeared at the beginning of the year, and within was an unexpected guest. This colourful creature quoted a comedy legend. The question is in three or four parts depending on how you look at things. What was the new Mansion part… what was the creature… and who and what was quoted?
  • Can you remember what challenge I set myself back in February?
  • What piece of furniture did I proudly walk into in March? And what flavour onion rings did I make a fuss over around the same time?
  • In April, a six-word Wordle had a missing word… simply, what was the word?
  • New Year’s Eve this year has an extra second just before the stroke of midnight, so the very last minute of 2016 will end at 23:59:60 instead of 23:59:59 as we enter yet another Leap Second (use the time wisely!)… what did I cause time to do in May?
  • In June, something happened to a fine knight of the realm… the question is what was it?
  • As part of World Watercolour Month in July, I painted a portrait that sent Blogland into a whirl. The question is easy. Who? That was also the question at the time, if I remember rightly.
  • On the subject of fine art (ahem), I created a lumpy landscape in August that was simply out of this world. Where was this unusual creation set?
  • What pesky pests did I unleash upon the world in September… totally out of season?
  • In October, as part of Halloween month, I posted about something or things that had their own odd way of following. To what am I referring now?
  • More comedy legends were mentioned in November; a couple of charming chaps who would be right at home in a cartoon. Who were they?
  • In December I wrote about Ben Sandalwood, and his unusual way of communicating. How did he do it, and to whom did he converse?

There we have it. Just for fun… no prizes or anything.

This is my last post of 2016, so I’d like to wish each and every one of you mighty fine visitors a Happy New Year! Just look at how many visits I’ve now had since the dawn of time!

I will post the answers to the above questions in an early post of 2017, and then we will continue to go…

There’s nowt like a bit of self promotion, is there?

Early Words Wordle: Sweet Dreams

Wrapped in toffee chocolate
That melt in the mouth
And run down the chin
Calories to burn, bear in mind
Almost time to get the exercise in

Not today, though, I’ll respectfully decline
A time to eat plenty, drink and be merry
More bells chime, slip in another course:
Profiterole tower
Refreshing torte
Or gateau topped with winter berries
Decisions, decisions, my oh my…
Mouth watering treats abound
Thoughts show signs they begin to drift
Oh no
The alarm bells wake me as they continually sound

Whoops Indeed!

Trust me to try and post during server maintenance… what are the chances of that happening? As a result, I appear to have posted more than once and receive this error when I try to put things right. I’ll get it sorted. At least this time I know that it isn’t me…! Open-mouthed smile
