Time to think







More questions than answers
The Old Buckenham Social and Wine Circle began their 2009 programme of meetings with their now traditional quiz evening. David Sallnow had set the questions and his wife Jenny was the scorer.
There were five rounds with twenty questions in each to keep the teams thinking hard. All rounds were a collection of general knowledge questions covering a wide range of subjects. One round involved answering questions based on short snippets of music from David’s personal collection and they ranged from operatic arias to songs by Peter Sellars.
The winners, who managed to get 60% of their answers correct, were the team of Susan and Neil Hunter, Doris Monkhouse and Margaret Pearce who were rewarded with a box of chocolates to share between them.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 12 February at 7.45pm in the Church Rooms when the speaker will be Tony Blackburn talking about stamps in the Spanish Civil War.
