Christmas is a time for families to get together which usually means cooking lots of food. Tired of the same old fare you reach for a cookery book from the shelf, but with some many to choose from which do you pick? Do you choose your favourite celebrity chef or a style of cuisine you haven’t tried before.

In this quiz I have given you a list of cookery book titles all you have to do is match them to the list of authors. Some may be obvious but others are tricky, good luck!!

Kings and Queens of the Jungle.

As it’s that time of the year when a new series of ITV’s “I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here!” starts, I thought it would be a good time to remember all the previous winners. In fairness the idea came from regular reader Carol Wilkie, who also provided many of the clues. It’s a simple format, I give you a clue about the winner and you have to identify him or her. It’s fairly easy if you’re a regular viewer of the programme but there are one to two that had me scratching my head!!

I was doing a crossword the other day and came across a clue that solved as a type of hat that I had never heard of. This gave me the idea for this picture quiz. On the sheet are twenty pictures of various hats and headgear which you have to identify, to help in this process I have given the names of the hats in alphabetical order at the bottom. Good luck!!



What’s Barbie’s Job?

August 10th, 2023 by

Since its launch in 1959 the Barbie doll has had over 250 different occupations. In this picture quiz twelve of these jobs are depicted, can you name them?

I’ve given the names as they have been originally marketed but you can accept some slight variations.



One Hit Wonders.

July 16th, 2023 by

The idea for this quiz came from reader Richard Longley and like most good ideas are simple in concept. A One Hit Wonder is defined as a group or singer that has only one hit record, in this case one that reached number 1 in the UK charts. I’ve compiled a list from the 1950’s up to the recent years with various blanks of the artist or title, all you have to do is to fill in the blanks.

By the way I am always open to new ideas for paper rounds just send them in via the “CONTACT ME” section.



What’s The Colour Of………….?

June 13th, 2023 by

Do you know what colour a post box is, of course you do it’s red. But what about one in Ireland?? This is a very simple quiz idea that was suggested to me by long time regular user Carol Wilkie, in it I name an object and you tell me what colour it is. As always some are very easy and others are a little more difficult.

In this quiz I give the former names of 25 people, places or products and you have to answer with their current names. I’m sure that you will find many of these easy but as always I’ve put a few tricky ones in there. Good luck!!
