Monday Monsoon

Another acceptance today, so the power of positive thinking marches on . . .

It’s just one from a batch of ten but they all count, and nine of the ten are now available to use again. It makes life easier when you can do that. I’m hopeful that another two or three will find approval elsewhere.

The potato wedges are sizzling in the oven and it will soon be time to add the veggie burgers and prepare the buns. (Note: I may have deviated from the low carb regime of previous posts). We will be having watercress, and beefsteak tomatoes provided by a neighbour.

After that the quizzes will start and I will be away from the keyboard for a while.

Later . . .

Another design, but still no trousers.

very with the general knowledge sections of Mastermind. This has been a feature of this series. Even from my own relaxing armchair I cannot always outscore the contestants. I can still beat one or two, but I feel my edge is going.

Then on to Only Connect, where Victoria Coren-Mitchell wore a ridiculous mask through the programme. She sometimes does this sort of thing. It’s distracting and annoying.

Then on to University Challenge, where it turns out I know more about apples than one of the teams. We got a few right tonight, though I admit I can still go for several minutes without even understanding the questions.

Last night we had torrential rain and sheet lightning lit up the sky. I like it. Julia doesn’t.ย  It was majestic We had more rain today and will have more during the week. After that it will start to get colder too. It’s beginning to look a lot like winter.

A Crown, no trousers nd plenty of enamel.

      Yes. And University Challenge seems to be dumbing down too. There was a time I couldn’t even understand most of the questions – now they have football and pop music. And some of the subjects on Mastermind . . .

    Lately, we have been going to trivia night at various local places. Lots of fun, and we came in second last night, scoring a gift card. I must add that our son-in-law Michael is, as daughter Dee put it, our MVP. You might recall that he also has a magnificent beard. Do you think there might be a connection?

      A beard is always, in my biased opinion, a good sign. handsome, witty, intelligent and unfailingly modest – bearded men are always near the top. Though being called Clif is a good sign too. ๐Ÿ™‚
