Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 19-7-2016

Ye gods … 

But that was a hot night!

The past few days?

Have been definitely humid.

Uncomfortably so.


Was absolutely gorgeous.

But frankly?

Frankly, it was definitely warm, last night.


But, while it was warm enough for me to comfortably fall asleep with the windows open?

It wasn’t warm enough to stop me watching a film.

If you get the chance, at some point?

I would seriously suggest you sit down with the Robert Eggers directed, The Witch.

I think it’s worth your time.


But let’s move on, shall we?

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

Q1) 19th July, 1970, saw the birth of Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.   Which political party is she leader of?
Q2) 19th July, 1952, saw the formal opening of the 1952 Summer Olympics.      They were held in which European country?

I’ll leave you with this thought …
“My message is a simple one - the E.U. is not perfect, but Scotland's interests are best served by being a member.”
First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, born 19th July, 1970.
And this tune … 

Have a good day!

*        I’ll try and avoid it, Debbi!   Oh, Are you much of a horror fan?   The Witch is well worth catching.   Completely bonkers, and VERY unnerving!

I thought I had replied to your questions yesterday. Now I'm wondering which day I replied to... Oh dear... I'm curious about the Witch and I thought it was still showing in cinemas here, but I seems to have just missed it. Back in the UK next week... I'll put in my list. I love horror but don't watch them that often these days, not sure why.
