Spock says:
I know this is a long shot, but this is not the best forum for this, but is definitely the best, and helpfullest forum, do you have any ideas of a christmas quiz!
It's for my community, at my expense, but I have no ideas for questions, my mind has gone blank.
I'm already paying a lot, so don't want to buy quiz books for a few questions.
If there are any in you mind whether slightly christmassy or purely christmassy, I will accept all, hard or easy.

Thanks, I already know you will help, Spock.
Live long and prosper. (not me this year!)

Well, let's see? - you could Google Christmas Carol lyrics and pick out the more obscure lines, and then ask people to guess the Carol? For example - "Light and life to all he brings, Risen with healing in his wings" is from Hark The Herald Angel Sings. And - "Ring out those bells tonight, Bethlehem, Bethlehem" is from Little Donkey.

Or how about a Christmas food quiz?.....B-U--EL S-R---S = BRUSSEL SPROUTS.
Or one based on Christmassy themed films?

Or try Googling 'Christmas Quiz' and see what other people have done. These came up for instance -
http://www.womanandhome.com/yournetwork/quizzes/1265/1/christmas-quiz
http://www.challengethebrain.com/questions-for-christmas-quiz-one.htm
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/features/3635133/QI-Christmas-quiz.html
http://www.brownielocks.com/Quiz.html

You could make you own quiz up out of these sites and make it as easy or as hard as you want it to be.

However, if you are still planning to destroy Earth on the 21st of December? - then perhaps you had better hold your quiz on the 20th? Just to be on the safe side? That'll give you adequate time to pack, make sure that you have your passport with you, and leave a note for the milkman!!! ;o>

Ohhh, and this Forum is just the right place to ask anything, Spock. If you check out all of the threads, plus the ones on the 'Cookery' and the 'Food' Forums too, you'll soon see exactly what I mean!!! - HA HA HA!!!.....x

Spock says:
Thank you Suzy, Pixie and Baerman, Unfortunately so do I, I usually go to bed late but tonight I fell asleep about 7am.
I only just woke up!
Sadly, my dentist has caused the problem.
One of my milk teeth, she filled and it was stuck to the gum, so It is slowly crushing, and a couple of months the filling came out.
I have had 7 abscesses in there as-
well. not to mention 43 others in my mouth.(not right now)
Sadly my dentist is rubbish, and if I want any dental treatment I will have to book a emergency appointment for early february at the community dentist 20 miles away from me (community of 20 miles??!).

Thank you but it should come out soon Pixie, and Thanky ou all for caring and suggestions.

pixie says:
Can't you find a National health dentist near you that will deal with it? Whatever you do DO NOT use oil of clove. It does more harm than good and is not to be recommended!

pixie says:
I feel for you as I had a week in bed with a dying root a few years a go and the pain was unreal. It locked my jaw and I could not eat. I was given the anti biotics too which didn't help..poor you, I hope it gets sorted quickly!

It's exactly the same where we are, Pixie. Where I live we have loads of Dentists, in my little village alone there are now 7 practices instead of just the two we used to have! But there are only a couple of NHS ones left in the whole of Stockport - and the waiting lists are quite literally over-flowing and involve several years of having to just sit it out in line for any treatment too - shocking!

I hope you feel better very soon, Spock. Have you tried taking a Multi-Vitamin & Mineral tablet? I'm sure from your posts that you have a healthy diet, but it may just boost your immunity that little bit more, and so help to prevent some of these awful abscessess from taking hold so often? - just an idea?.....x

We were far too poor to live in t' luxury of a shoebox - we had 10 to a matchbox but we was still happy!

You had a matchbox?...you didn't know you were born!

Monty Python's Flying Circus - The Complete Boxset [DVD] [1969] [2008] that takes me back!!!!

We were far too poor for me to be born, Pixie?
I'm still just a twinkle in my Daddy's eye!!!
