Were you Amused or Bemused?

Thanks to all of you who entered my Blog Treasure Hunt. The feedback I’m getting is that you all enjoyed it. Some got a little stuck but most of you muddled on through to the end. Fair Play for giving it a go and for having fun in the process. Without further ado, here are the answers and… later on… the winners:

  • Question 1: I named my blog after a phrase I associate with whom?
  • Led you to blog-post: In the Beginning
  • Answer: my mother
  • Question 2: Name one of the paramedics who saved my life.
  • Led you to blog-post: Humbled
  • Answer: Gerry O’ Sullivan or John Devereux
  • Question 3: Name the Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandmother of the “POTUS”
  • Led you to blog-post: Vote for the Irishman
  • Answer: Phoebe Donovan
  • Question 4: Other than knitting, what links “raglan”, “cardigan”, “kitchener” and “balaclava”?
  • Led you to blog-post: More U.S.A. Today
  • Answer: The Crimean War (I gave a half-point to those who said the Military / Military History)
  • Question 5: How many kilometers of yarn did I use for my first attempt at Glenvar?
  • Led you to blog-post: The Behemoth
  • Answer:1.68km
  • The tie-breaker question: How many views will I get on Easter Sunday according to my blog-stats page
  • Answer: 15 (this really surprised me since I got a whopping 357 the day before!!!)
