And so the end is near: answers

May 30, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

Good morning all.  I know I said at the end of my most recent post that the answers would arrive “tomorrow morning” but, sometimes, life gets in the way of blogging.

You see, the reason I knew on Thursday last that I would have to post up the answers on Friday morning or else they wouldn’t be up for days is that my brother got married last Friday afternoon.  We had a great time, thanks for asking.  However, the day ended up being so busy that I simply didn’t have time to get to a computer.

Mind you, I did manage to squeeze in my weekly show on Claremorris Community Radio so the Friday Five Trivia are present and correct.  Albeit, they were posted on a Monday!

Check them out here:


  1. In the Old Testament, Noah’s Ark was made out of what wood? A> Gopher wood
  2. What is the female lead in an opera called? A> Prima Donna
  3. What was invented by Sir James Dewer? A> Vacuum (Thermos) Flask
  4. What is the name of Barack Obama’s eight cousin, who the US President met in Moneygall this week? A> Henry Healy

Okey doke.  Hope you did alright in those.
