The Daily Teaser — 6-4-2015

Right … 

It’s a Monday: and the start of another week.

But I have to admit: yesterday … ?

Yesterday, my guts felt bloody awful!

Lord knows what happened there, but the only thing that seemed to help?

Was getting a seriously early night.

The one upside to that, though … ?

Was that I was able to catch up on some more reading: A Slip Of The Keyboard is some interesting stuff … 


But let’s get a move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

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

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

Q1) 6th April, 1652, saw Jan van Riebeeck establish a resupply camp: in the Cape Of Good Hope.   What’s that resupply camp now called?
Q2) 6th April, 1893, saw Wilford Woodruff dedicate a very large church: in what’s now Salt Lake City, in Utah.   That church is now the main one: for which religious group?
Q3) 6th April, 1947, saw the awarding of the first Tony Awards: in the USA.   The Tonys are awarded for excellence in what: the Theatre, the movie industry or scientific achievement?
Q4) 6th April, 1320, saw the people of Scotland re-affirming their independence from England: by signing the Declaration of where?
Q5) Finally … 6th April, 1973, saw NASA launch the Pioneer 11 probe.   The probe was due to explore Saturn, Jupiter … and what else?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …

Q3) The Island has been named as a World Heritage Site: by the UN.   In which year of the 1990s?
A3) 1995.
Q4) Easter Island is part of the mainland country that’s on the nearest continent.   The continent is South America.   What’s the country?
A4) Chile.
Q5) Finally … Easter Island’s best-known landmarks are the Moai.   What are the Moai?
A5) Statues.
I’ll leave you with this thought …
“I’d get to a point with my colleagues when I couldn’t explain any further, because it came down to ‘To him who has had the experience no explanation is necessary, to him who has not, none is possible.’”
Ram Dass, April 6, 1931.
And this tune … 

Have a good day … 

*        My pleasure, Debbi, glad I could help!   (Never having needed it, I couldn’t tell you how to use it: but I’m glad knowing it was there was useful … !)
