Random quote on Provincialism
What's the difference between provincialism, which unthinkingly takes its situation for everyone's, and cosmopolitanism, which is confident it has the right to?
James Richardson (1950- )
Don’t park yourself in front of the telly after the Christmas lunch when the web offers a host of games for all the family… If you know the fictional company that James Bond often claims to work for is Universal Exports, you may have done too many pub quizzes. But others looking for some questions should go to www.avendano.org/
quiz/index.php. It has more than 900 questions in 10 categories, including sport, music and history, all of which can be printed out for quiz masters.
Just like to thank you for your questions that have been used on my impossible pub quiz on John Bowe Saturday Radio Show in Ireland. The show has been going for over 4 years and we have used your questions regularly. Cheers, John
