Subject: Quiz: Sugar and spice . . .
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 21 Nov 17 - 07:52 PM

The quiz theme is "Sugar & Spice and all things nice" (that's what little girls are made of)
All answers are, or include girls' names

This should remain 'above the line' for a day or so at least, as there are music questions included.

Usual request, as for my quizzes, please do not post the answers in the thread
Answers will be posted within a separate thread within the coming week.

I will usually respond to help requests, or score claims, by PM between now and posting the answers.

1 Which is the only girl's name (NOT Charlie) to appear in the NATO phonetic alphabet?
2 What is the symbol of the Earl Haig Fund?
3 Which 1960s pop trio shared their name with a collegiate athletic conference comprising sports teams from eight private institutions of higher education in the Northeastern United States?
4 In the story Jurassic Park, in what material was Dinosaur DNA preserved?
5 What is a traditional gift for a 30th anniversary?
6 In the mnemonic "Richard of York gave battle in vain", what does "vain" represent?
7 Who was the central female character in George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion"?

16 What name often used poetically for Ireland, is derived from the Irish name for the country (in the genitive or dative case)?
17 What term was originally any expressive melody, usually, but not always, performed by a singer. The term became used almost exclusively to describe a self-contained piece for one voice, with or without orchestral accompaniment, normally part of a larger work?

These things always kill me, Nigel, because I want to post my answers right away and show off how smart I am. Can't we start a separate thread right away in the BS section so we nerds can show off our brilliance right away?

Oooh! Ooooh! I know that one......

Mr. Parsons, I too enjoy your mind-trips.


I suppose, we could post answers to this thread in "font=white" and folks could peek only if they highlighted empty space.

NATO Alpha three answers.

1. DELTA (Dawn - flower got on)

2. ECHO (nymph mythology)

3. JULIET (wherefore art)

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Nigel.... What e-mail address would you like the answers sent to?

Got the derivation for number 16, but not the girl's name I was looking for.
