By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    A blunder! the first question was, "Clouds are composed mainly of what?"

  • @Xeb‌ this reminded me of this joke :

    - Do you like to solve a riddle ?
    - Of course .
    - An animal with 4 legs , covered with feathers and it's crowing early in the morning .
    - I don't know !
    - Answer is "rooster"
    - But roosters have 2 legs only !
    - Ok but then riddle would be so easy !!!

    ;)

    Here we are, May quiz winners.
    The winner of the night was @april‌. Well done lady!
    The runner up, Rahul aka @poprahul3‌ on the forum. You gave April quite a tough time in the final round and bonus quiz. :D
    A special prize for her knowledge about the Bristish Royal family goes to @Hermine‌.

    For sure how many people would have been able to answer the following question?
    How many children did Queen Elisabeth II have when she was crowned?
    A. 2 B. 1 C. 0
    Maybe @Poetria‌, but I'm not so sure. After all, this question challenged @Lynne‌.

    A 2014 quiz win badge for @april‌
    A 2014 quiz participation badge for @poprahul3‌
    A royal familly badge for @Hermine‌
