Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 6-8-2016

Blimey … 

Right at the moment … ?

I’m feeling quite chipper.

Which is surprising: as my guts were seriously playing up, yesterday.

To the point I had to go home early.   (NOT something I wanted: and something that’s getting seriously resented by co-workers.)

On the upside?

I had an old friend pop in on me, after work.

And didn’t get to bed until late.

The surprising bit?

Like I say, is feeling very chipper this morning.



But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga*, Angel† and Debbi‡ putting in their answers: with all three scoring five out of five.

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

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

Q1) 6th August, 1996, saw NASA announce it had found evidence of life on Mars.   What it had actually found was possible fossil bacteria on what: an asteroid, meteorite or comet?

I’ll leave you with this thought …
“I’ve never met a person I couldn’t call a beauty.”
Andy Warhol, August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987.
And this tune … 

Have a good day.

*        That’s OK, Olga, as it’s you, I’ll let you off!   (From the little I’ve seen?   Most right-handers tend to not to be good at doing things with their left hand: but us lefties tend to find switching hands fairly easy!)

†        Welcome back aboard, Angel, good to see you here!

‡        There’s a woman who know’s where I’m coming from!   They help pay the bills, don’t they Debbi?   But, Lordy … !
