The Daily Teaser — 18-1-2016

Amazing … 

It’s Monday … 

AND ITS STILL NOT SNOWED … !

Which I, personally, am grateful for: although QUITE what my five-year-old, Jude, would be telling you at the moment, I don’t know.

Probably that it’s a stinky poo-head, if I know him!

At any rate, it’s possibly good news: it means there’s less chance of problems with public transport.

Tonight … is the official Works Christmas do: bowling in Romford, so you know.

Frankly … ?

I’m looking forward to the night out … 

~≈Â≈~

But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw both Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: both scoring five out of five in the process.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video … 

Q1) 18th January, 1943, saw the start of a Jewish upraising: in a ghetto in which city?
Q2) 18th January, 1919, saw the founding of Bentley Motors.   But in which part of London: Cricklewood, Dollis Hill or Kilburn?
Q3) Wilhelm 1st was named as Emperor of Germany, on 19th January, 1871.   This marks the period Germans call what: the First, Second or Third Reich?
Q4) Albert De Salvo was convicted on various charges of rape, on 18th January, 1967.   He was also linked to the murders committed by which unidentified killer?
Q5) Finally … 18th January, 1963, saw the death of Hugh Gaitskill.   Gaitskill led which British political party: Labour, Liberal or Conservative?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …

Q3) E. C. Segar’s best known creation debuted: on the 17th January, 1929.   Who WAS that creation?

Q5) Finally … 17th January, 1977, saw the first execution in the US: for a decade.   Of whom?
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“I could have signed for Newcastle when I was 17, but I decided I would be better off at Carlisle. I’d had a drink that night.”
Peter Beardsley, born 18 January 1961.
And this tune … 


Have a good day … 







*        We‘ve STILL got no snow, Olga: I’m happy, means the trains aren’t going to be delayed.   (I’ve not been bowling for a while …)

†      Be good to have an extra pair of hands in, Debbi!   Did I mention the works do?   I’m getting mental images of John Goodman …
