The Quiz Part 9

Greetings, November is here once more and that means it is time for Falcon’s Annual Quiz. This is the 9th incarnation that has taken place on my blog with the first taking place on 24th August 2009. The second was held on the 9th April 2010 before I finally decided to make this an annual occasion set on a November date with the third quiz. As always, the test focuses mostly within the realm of entertainment but also contains a few general knowledge questions. Unfortunately, I can’t keep a tally of the score from the very beginning as the first two quizzes have incomplete records but I do have the previous year’s results. Joh was the winner of 2016’s quiz with eight points, Mark came in second with seven and Aaron narrowly behind with six. The answers can be found below as always. In other news, I intend to enter the 2017 Writing Challenge for Write Wise with a Christmas entry and a long awaited sequel to one of my previous stories from a few years ago. Best of luck and enjoy.
