Can't See The Wood for the Trees

Monthly Pub Quiz last night - how did we do? First of all we changed our name to 'Not Very Bright' - we lived up to our name. Just as we thought we were doing rather well Quizmaster seemed to change the rules when reading out the answers! The section on Artists - our team did brilliantly - each question right, except, . . . . . . . Quizmaster required the first names - eg. Vincent Van Gogh - well really! We lost five points in that round. Huge (very good natured) rebellion from around the pub - Quizmaster is extremely funny and can hold his own to any amount of argy bargy. Well done to our neighbours 'Barking Mad' who claimed top prize. 'Not So Bright' came a tarnished equal third. A good time was had by all.

FIX! Are you sure the winning team weren't partial to awarding the odd back hander? I'd have a stern word if I were you MH

Lindsay - sounds great fun. Haven't been to a pub quiz for ages but have arranged with friends to do just that towards the end of the month. Will let you know how we get on.

Have looked at Jamie's blog with photo - thanks for that.

Equal third does not sound bad or where there only four teams?

Equal third is a reasonable place - who know where those artists' first names might have placed you?

We went to the pub quiz on sunday night too! Both sons and daughter-in-law came with us and we came third. We thought that was pretty good! Fancy insisting on first names! He should have made that clear at the beginning. Unfair!
