The Daily Teaser — 15-11-2012

Hmmm … 

You know, I think I’m going to have to give Bruce a mild going over: or, at least a mild defraging.

Bless him, I’ve had him on, overnight: burning a DVD of photos of my nephew, Jude.

The net result … is Bruce is feeling a touch arthritic, this morning … !

I think I’ll get that done, once I’ve finished A Certain Post … !

Let’s get on to that, shall we … ?


Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi putting in her answers: along with mentioning a post she felt I should have a look at*, she also bagged 3 out of 5ª.

Let’s see how she — and you — do with today’s themed questions, shall we?

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

Q1) 15th November, 2012 sees England and Wales elect Police Criminal Commissioners: except in London.   Who fills the role in London … ?
Q2) More to the point, name either of the police forces in London.
Q3) Which building has one of those two police forces announced it’s planning to sell … ?
Q4) Which government department has overall responsibility for the UK’s police … ?
Q5) And finally … what piece of police equipment was traditionally made from a mix of cork, felt and leather … ?
And here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …
Q1) 14th November, 1770, saw James Bruce discover what he thought was the source of the Nile.   In which country did he find it … ?
A1) Ethiopia.
Q2) More to the point, which tributary of the Nile had Bruce actually found the source of … ?
A2) The Blue Nile.
Q3) Equally to the point: in which Lake is the source of that river … ?
A3) Lake Tana.
Q4) The Blue Nile joins the main Nile River at which Egyptian town: Thebes, Cairo or Khartoum … ?
A4) Khartoum.
Q5) And finally … The Nile Delta drains the Nile River … into which sea … ?
A5) The Mediterranean.
Enjoy those, everyone: I’ll leave you with the theme tune from Dixon of Dock Green … 

And these words of wisdom from an unnamed Met officer, talking to noted artist, Banksy …
“There’s no way you're going to get a quote from us to use on your book cover”   
Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, talking to noted graffiti artist, Banksy
Hoping that video works … !

*        At least, I will do, Debbi: as soon as Bruce start’s speeding upº … !

º        Actually … I stand corrected: you may may like the comment … !  (And thanks for posting the song.   Don, Dave, Sweetpea, Harry and Don Ray have been doing their thing for years, now.   And are seriously underrated … !)

ª        Ah … ! I can TELL you’re drafting something for a Certain Lawyer of out mutual acquaintance … !

Thanks for reposting my post! And for sharing my other one on Facebook! Ha ha ha ...

The worst part is that it's all true. ROFL!

And it's great to reconnect with Sam again. :)
