It’s the last of the days off for a while.
So, of course, today I’ve pencilled in making a lot of videos.
And finishing off laundry!
Exciting stuff, huh?
That’s if dirty pants are you thing.
Don’t look at me.
I’m not the one with the specialised website … !
But let’s move on, shall we?
Yesterday’s Teaser saw saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring four out of five in the process.
Let’s see how everyone does with today’s themed questions, shall we?

Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) The Convention on Cybercrime was signed in Budapest: on 23rd November, 2001. Which UK bank reported losing £2.5 million to cybercriminals, in November of 2016?
A1) Tesco Bank.
Q2) TV series, Doctor Who, started on 23rd November, 1963. This year saw the BBC announce that the Doctor’s new companion, Bill, would be played by whom?
A2) Pearl Mackie.
Q3) In the Russian Orthodox Church, 23rd November is the Feast Day of Alexander Nevsky. Alexander was Prince of where: Moscow, Vladivostok or Novgorod?
Q4) 23rd November, 1984, saw commuters trapped at a London Underground station: after it was hit by a fire. Which station?
A4) Oxford Circus.
Q5) Finally … 23rd November is the earliest date that Black Friday can fall. Black Friday is the first major shopping day after which US holiday?
A5) Thanksgiving. (I try and avoid Amazon on Black Friday. Not because I don’t like a bargain — I do — but because I find the idea of people in the UK marking a shopping day that marks a US holiday, objectionable. Granted, I voted Remain in the EU Referendum … but what the hell was it about? In part, keeping an arm’s length from foreign influence …)
As I don’t want to give away too many clues, I’m not going to leave you with a song.
But I will leave you with this thought …
“I’m possessed by love — but isn’t everybody?”
Have a good day.
* I think the audience goes up and down, Debbi: it’s OK, though. We know you’re joking†! :D
† Actually, the recent thing that got a lot of hits? Was a tune …
