Clever clogs

I'm feeling just a little bit clever right now as I am just home from a Pub Quiz having been part of the winning team!!! Also on the team was sister-in-law Dorothy (a teacher - handy to have on a quiz team), and my daughters Kate and Vicki - it was hosted by the Killiney Lions club in aid of Haiti. We scored 82/101 and tied with another table in first place. In the tie break we won with 3/5 correct. I'm kicking myself that I didn't know that Arlene Foster stood in for Peter Robinson, and that the "Phil" in Eastenders was "Mitchell" - in both cases I just could not come up with their names. Good fun overall - even though I was still off the drink for Lent. This is only the second time I have been on a winning quiz team - the last one was over 25 years ago in Trinity with the Zoology Dept team.

A winning feeling (which doesn't happen to me too often), is a very nice feeling.

Our prize was a cheque for €100, which we agreed to donate to the Haiti fund. I did come away with something as I won a bottle on cognac in the raffle (have to wait until Easter to try it out).
