So is it over to Dorsetgal now? :o

 

After all she knew 2 answers and I only guessed the date after other people ruled out the 50's & 60's :D

 

Edit:-

I see Simply Pauls just come in with the name :rolleyes:

 

If it's Ok with you Nediam I'll give the ding to Dorsetgal because she was initially on the right track.

Thanks!

 

Ok back to something, albeit tenously linked with geocaching.

 

I live on the edge of a large urban heathland, like many such areas in Southern England, it is the perfect habitat for all of the native British reptiles.

 

The ding will go to the first person to name all of them.

Tries again...

 

Snakes

 

Adder

Grass Snake

Smooth Snake

 

Lizards

 

Common Lizard

Sand Lizard

Slow Worm

 

Nope I give up!

 

Ding to the Birdman, you are the first person to name al 6 without any red herrings, oops, I mean red terrapins!

 

The two rare ones are the smooth snake and the sand lizard; most summers I manage to see all 6 at some stage while exercising Caesar aka GeoDog on the heathland. We also have a returning colony of sand lizards to the patio, usually arriving early May with first young around towards mid June.

 

Here's a pic I took of them last summer. The green one is the male.

As you may know I'm from Cornwall. Not too far away from Liskeard, near the village of Rilla Mill is a small cheese factory.

 

The cheese it produces is covered in the leaves from young nettles which are picked by local children to earn a few Pounds of pocket money.

 

The cheese is called Yarg - why such a strange name?

-Its Gray backwards - as in Allan and Jenny Gray :laughing:

I'm from the North East of England, renowned once for Shipbuilding & Mining.

 

What was the name of the largest Tanker to be built on the Tyne?

:laughing:

Jahre Viking?

 

Probably the biggest but I don't think it was built on the Tyne :laughing:

 

Edit:-

Ooh, late thought, is it "infamous?" e.g. Exxon Valdez

G Force is the closest so far - Esso Northumbria was the first Super tanker Built on the Tyne @ 253,000 Tons but there were a couple bigger - Keep trying

 

The largest super tanker built on the Tyne was - the 'Tyne Pride' weighing in at 262,222 tons....

Okay - here goes. What is another name for a person who loves cats?

 

Someone who has yet to discover the unquestionable faithfulness of a dog :ph34r:

:ph34r::D:D

 

I dunno our cats pretty faithful.....She always faithfully keeps my seat warm :D Useless at fetchin' the paper though :D

 

I'll have a go at something like a Feliophile - based on the latin for cat :D

Well a fear of cats is ailurophobia, so I'll guess at an Ailurophile

 

DING - Correct!

 

It comes from the Greek language - ailouros (cat) and philos (lover of) - therefore an ailurophile is a lover of cats.

Learnt that from the Bamboozle quiz on Teletext a couple of weeks ago, incredibly educational these quizzes. :laughing:

 

OK, as it's a PUB Quiz, what is the name for somebody who collects Beermats?
