If we've got to have US questions why not history and geog etc as well as sport? We've had stinking sport twice this month, also bible trivia.

And what is wrong with goats? I had five at one time, very nice animals. Far more personality than sheep, we used to take them for walks.

We have had History and Geog too this month if I'm not mistaken. Sport twice deffo, and the UK about 3 times, Science once right at the beginning(remember because it's the only day I've won).

Perhaps I'll start noting it in a diary just to see if there is a pattern or if they are randomly chosen. Mixed bag trivia we've also had a few times -all in all we shouldn't complain as we have had a fair amount of variety and I don't think any one player is being catered for.

I've been knocked back a peg or two every time I exult about getting 10 or doing well - it certainly keeps me on my toes and provides me with a few wry smiles, laughs and tears. At the end of the day it is supposed to be Trivial after all -of little or no consequence

It's neck and neck between you two - a real tug of war.

Is there a prize hanging on the outcome i wonder...

I think you pass into the lead after today in your personal battle.

I have decided not to play in the morning again if i can help it as it's always a disaster -don't seem to have the speed or concentration.

I have always been more of a night owl

I'm sure they are nice Heidi -did you have one called Snowflake?

I personally can't stand the smell of them and Goat's cheese makes me physically sick

Debbie, Poppy, Primrose, Violet and Cicely - and female goats don't smell - but the car did after we brought one back from being served by the billy!

Yes we have had history and geog but my point is there are not as many US biased questions in those as there are in the sport ones.

Nothing we can do about it - it's been pointed out time and again by Rindy that the host site is in the US, there is no bias towards anyone and we are all in the same boat.

We just have to take what they throw at us and make the best of it!

A British stiff upper lip is the best deffence in the face of adversity

Nothing wrong with goats it's just that it sounds like you think sheep are better at quizzes so I'd rather be one of those!!....and you're right "we don't need no more stinking sports quizzes"!!

Dave, I reckon you've already won our duel, Religion was the final nail in my coffin!! But next month will be a different story!

Sheep are better at quizzes? no, goats are far more intelligent!

It's in the bible, Matthew's gospel. From the WWW:

Both sheep and goats were valuable farm animals in ancient Palestine. The verses in Matthew use the commonplace Christian imagery that portrays them in very different lights. Sheep are depicted as the meek and gentle followers of Christ (the Lamb of God) and goats as unruly and coarse outcasts, who are otherwise castigated as scapegoats and widely used as the basis of portraits of Satan.

Maybe you had better be a sheep after all...
