The Daily Teaser — 28-3-2016

You know, I THINK one can over do the Easter eggs.

Well … 

Possibly overdo the Easter eggs.

At least, I think it is: going by how my teeth felt, yesterday.

Personally, though … ?   I have to add that my nephew, Jude — who’s five — isn’t a fan of chocolate.

He ended up with one of those Lego Ninjago toys: something I know he enjoyed.

To be frank … ?

I’m blowed if I know who got him THAT … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring six out of six in the process.

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

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …

I’ll leave you with this thought …
“Just as we cannot stop the movement of the heavens, revolving as they do with such speed, so we cannot restrain our thought.”

Teresa of Ávila, 28 March 1515 – 4 October 1582.
And this tune … 

Have a good day!
