TODAY`S TWELVE QUESTIONS

To tie-in with "the Summer in the O2 Community", the questions, in some way, relate to "summer;

Q4 [SPACE]      How many days are there in the summer season on Mars ?

 

Q5 [LITERATURE] Who wrote "Bed In Summer" and "Summer Sun", published in the collection

                              "A Children`s Garden of Verses" in 1885 ? 

 

Q6 [MUSIC] Who wrote "Summertime [and the living is easy]" in 1934 ?

 

Q7 [ART]  Which British painter painted "Summer Evening" - field with cows and trees - in 1811/12  ? 

 

Q8 [MOVIES]   What was the name of the character played by Cliff Richard in the 1963 movie "Summer Holiday" ?

 

Q9 [TV]  Who played the character Norman Clegg in the TV comedy "Last of the Summer Wine" ?

 

Q10 [SPORT] Who won the Gold Medal in the Men`s 800 metres in the 1980 Summer Olympics ?

 

Q11 [EVENTS] In which English county is the World Gravy Wrestling Championship held each summer ?

 

Q12 [ODD - SAYING] What word is missing from this well-known saying

                                    "one ------- does not a summer make" ?

 

The White Room Quiz is open to all members of the Community.

Thank you @Cleoriff 

Pleased you think it is a nice summer quiz.

As I said, there is no QI-style question [nor, you will no doubt have noted, a "science" question], although a couple of questions are, in my opinion, not quite so easy.

Good luck. 

Look forward to pm with your answers any time after 12 noon today [Mon].
