I should have closed Round 19 by now, but won't be able to post results till tomorrow. (Will accept late entries ) There's a thunder storm rumbling round, and I need to shut down before my new modem gets fried like my old one did a couple of weeks ago!

Here they are at last. Sorry to take so long.

ROUND 19 RESULTS

Eight people played. Thank you all.

1. Name a Brooklyn Dodger who is given a chapter to himself in Roger Kahn’s ‘The Boys of Summer’.

Worth 10 points:
Gil Hodges, ‘Pee Wee’ Reese, Jackie Robinson, ‘Preacher’ Roe, George Shuba, Duke Snider

Worth 5 points:
Roy Campanella (2)

Not mentioned (or chosen): Joe Black, Billy Cox, Carl Erskine, Carl Furillo, Clem Labine, Andy Pafko

Kahn was a sportswriter in Brooklyn, assigned to cover the Dodgers in the early 1950s, and the first part of the book deals largely with one season. Twenty years later, Kahn caught up with thirteen of the players, and devotes a chapter to each of them in the second part of the book, looking at how life after baseball has turned out for them.

2. Name a poem by Rupert Brooke.

Worth 10 points:
‘One Day’, ‘Peace’, ‘Retrospect’, ‘The Soldier’, ‘The Treasure’, ‘The Wayfarers’

Worth 5 points:
‘Tiare Tahiti’ (2)

There were many others to choose from, both from his pre-1914 works and his war poems. Brooke died on active service in 1915.

3. In honour of the holiday season, please name a famous person with the first name ‘Noel’ (or ‘Noelle’).

Worth 10 points:
Noelle Bush (niece of George W., daughter of Jeb), Noel Edmonds (UK TV personality), Noel Ferrier (Aussie actor), Noel Gallagher (of Oasis)

Worth 5 points:
The very popular Noel Coward (4) (probably needs no introduction!)

Other possibilities: Actor Noel Harrison (son of Rex), double Victoria Cross recipient Noel Chavasse, actress Noel Neill (Lois Lane to George Reeves’ Superman in the 1950s) and I’m sure several others.

4. Name a song from the 1942 movie ‘Holiday Inn’.

Everyone gets 10 points!

The songs mentioned were:
‘Come to the Holiday Inn’, ‘I’ve Got Plenty to be Thankful For’, ‘Lazy’, ‘Let’s Say it with Firecrackers’ (fun novelty dance number for Astaire!), ‘Let’s Start the New Year Right’, ‘Song of Freedom’, ‘White Christmas’ and ‘You’re Easy to Dance With’

Like the person who chose it, I expected to see ‘White Christmas’ quite often, but you all surprised me!

5. Name a recipient of the Victoria Cross whose last name begins with the letter I or the letter Q.

Worth 10 points:
Alfred Ind (Shoeing Smith, Royal Horse Artillery-South Africa, 1901), George Ingram (Lieutenant, Australian Imperial Force-France, 1918), James Innes (Lieut., Bengal Engineers-India, 1858), Reginald Inwood (Private, AIF-Belgium, 1917), Lionel Queripel (Captain, R Sussex Regt attached Paras-Arnhem, 1944, posthumous), Robert Quigg (Rifleman, R Irish Rifles-First day of the Battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916)

Worth 5 points:
Charles Irwin (Private, 53rd Regt.-India, 1857)(2)

Not mentioned:
George Ingouville (Captain of the Mast, RN-the Baltic, 1855), Edgar Inkson (Lieut., RAMC-South Africa, 1900), Gilbert Insall (2nd Lieut., Royal Flying Corps-France, 1915). Again, I’d have also accepted Ishar Singh (Sepoy, 28th Punjab Regt, Indian Army-India, 1921) as he’s usually listed under ‘I’ in alphabetical lists.

Wow! We have six winners, all on 45 points:

beaker411, cinnam0n, ElfTwinkle, JaneMarple, Julia103, ozzz2002

Just behind on 40 points are:
Gatsby722 and Santana2002

Thanks everyone for playing, and congratulations to the six winners!

As it is the night before Christmas, this quiz is all about pressies that Santa has left/will leave under my Aussie Christmas tree!

1. Name one of the current series of Bratz dolls available in Australia, i.e., not what type they are, but their actual name, e.g., Chloe!

2. Name any part of a skateboard, 'tech' terms only thanks!

3. Name an episode from the BBC series 'Blackadder Goes Forth'.

4. Name a wheel size for a bicycle, these are measured in inches in Australia!

5. Name a food that is traditionally 'thrown' on an Aussie BBQ (i.e., cooked)!

This quiz will remain open until at least until Monday, as I'll be way too busy with Chrissy lunch for the family (extended) here at my house and bludging full out on Boxing Day (probably in the pool!). Hope everyone enjoys their Christmas to the max and gets exactly what they want/deserve from good ol' Santa! Merry Christmas one and all from Down Under!

For five points:
Baby Jesus (5)
Not mentioned:
Shepard boy, the Angel Gabriel, Balthasar and Melchior (the other two wise men!) There may be more too!

For five points:
Cow (the Ox) (3), Donkey (the [censored] )(3),

I am sure there must had been more too!

Q3 – A traditional Christmas Carol mentioning the word “snow” in the first verse!
For ten points:

For five points:
Good King Wenceslas (2) In the bleak mid-winter (3),

For ten points:

For ten points:
Paper, Pool (swimming. Apparently there is nothing better than sitting by it on Christmas Day!), Prancer the reindeer, Popcorn string to decorate your tree

Well, we got through December without much of a hitch. Noticing that, why not go back to the daily schedule? It's up to everyone, but I think that'd be OK to do. My vote.

I'll fourth it!

Exit10 is enjoying the Holiday Season, so we've swapped for this Sunday's questions. As I expect we're all still recovering from big Christmas dinners, I've tried to keep Googling to a minimum this time out.

Quote:

ROUND 26

1 December 26 is St Stephen's Day, so please name a famous 'Stephen' (with an indication of their claim to fame).

2 Choose a present (either something you received, or something you wanted) from:
a)Books b)CDs c)Jewellery d)Clothing e)Video/Board Games

3 Name something you ate for Christmas dinner.

4 Name any movie with 'Christmas' in the title.

5 Here's the Google question - Over the Christmas Season each year, ski jumping's World Cup holds the prestigious Four Hills Competition (between 29 Dec and 6 Jan this season). Name one of the Four Hills.




If googling the last one doesn't help (it should, but if it doesn't) let me know, and I'll add a generous hint.

ROUND 26 RESULTS

Eight people played this round.

1. December 26 is St Stephen's Day, so please name a famous 'Stephen' (with an indication of their claim to fame).

Everyone scored 10 on this one!
Stephen (first Christian martyr), Stephen Cousins (figure skater), Stephen Crane (author), Stephen Dunn (poet), Stephen Collins Foster (songwriter), Stephen Soderbergh and Stephen Spielberg (both directors) and Stephen Waugh (Aussie cricket great)

I’m sure there were lots of other possibilities, too!


2 Choose a present (either something you received, or something you wanted) from:
a)Books b)CDs c)Jewellery d)Clothing e)Video/Board Games


Worth 10 points:
Games

Worth 5 points:
Books (3), CDs (2), Clothing (2)

Nobody chose jewellery.


3 Name something you ate for Christmas dinner.


Again, 10 points for everyone, and some interesting Christmas fare around the world!

Cheesecake, Cornish game hen, Cranberries, Fruit salad, Gravy, Olives, Scallops, Yorkshire puddings

Not mentioned, from my own plate: turkey, bread sauce, potatoes, brussels sprouts, bacon, Christmas pudding. The list could be endless.


4 Name any movie with 'Christmas' in the title.


Worth 10 points:
A Christmas Carol, The Christmas that Almost Wasn’t, Christmas with the Kranks,
Don’t Open ‘Til Christmas, A Muppet Christmas Carol, The Nightmare Before Christmas

Worth 5 points:
Christmas in Connecticut (2)

I was quite surprised to see two of you come up with that one (from 1945), funnily enough the first one I thought of when I wrote the question!
Everyone stayed away from the obvious ‘White Christmas’.



5 Over the Christmas Season each year, ski jumping's World Cup holds the prestigious Four Hills Competition (between 29 Dec and 6 Jan this season). Name one of the Four Hills.


I may not have been clear enough here – all I was really looking for was the name of the place where each hill is located. Even as a fan, I don’t know the names of all the hills! Anyway, everbody gave a valid answer!

Worth 5 points:
Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany (3), Bergisel/Innsbruck, Austria (3), Schattenberg/Oberstdorf, Germany (2)

No one mentioned Bischofshofen, Austria, which holds the final event on 6th January.

The Four Hills is a competition within the season-long World Cup competition, and has been held for over fifty years. At the fiftieth anniversary competition, in 2001-02, German jumper Sven Hannawald made history, by becoming the first man ever to win all four events in a single Four Hills competition.

And the winner is:

JaneMarple with 45 points!

40 points: cinnam0n, ElfTwinkle, Exit10, Julia103, mjohn620
35 points: gatsby722, ozzz2002

Congratulations Jane! Thanks everyone for playing.
