    I have identified 9 six-letter words and 6 five-letter words ending in “and” that might be reasonably likely to arise in ordinary conversation/discussion or in writing etc. Your challenge is to name as many of the 15 words as you can for one point each. I am aware that there are a number of valid words and you can list as many as you like - but only ones in my list of 15 of the commonest will count. Proper nouns/words that begin with a capital letter and hyphenated words or words containing apostrophes or slang words are not allowed.

    Here’s a quiz for Beatles fans. It’s in two parts. Firstly, I’m looking for the 5 top 40 hits from the 1960s with a title that has two or more words that begin with the same letter. Secondly, I’m looking for the 10 top 40 hits from the 1960s that have one or more words of at least 7 letters in their title (both sides will count separately in the case of double-sided hits). Where an EP or LP has made the top 40, only the name of the EP or LP applies. A small clue – two hits appears in both lists. You can make as many guesses as you want. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck. REMEMBER - NO POSTS instead you PM me with your guesses any time up to midnight tonight. If possible, please wait until you've completed all the guesses you want to make to avoid too many PMs and to make my job easier.

    Today we test your knowledge of Latin words. There is a list of Latin words – of how many do you know or can you guess the English equivalent word. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck. REMEMBER - NO POSTS instead you PM me with your guesses any time up to midnight tonight. If possible, please wait until you've completed all the guesses you want to make to avoid too many PMs and to make my job easier. So no hurry and it doesn't matter when you submit the answers because I'll be judging them solely on who has the most correct - and in the event of two or more being level it will be a tie. I hope this is clear and good luck. Tomorrow I’ll post the names of the top entries. 1. Sol 2. Mille 3. Rex 4. Mater 5. Contra 6. Lumen 7. Annus 8. Stella 9. Leo 10. Bellum 11. Emptor 12. Post 13.

    Your challenge today is to name the 7 English counties that have land borders with at least 7 other English counties. 7 Guesses maximum – a point each plus a bonus point if you can identify which one of those counties shares 8 such land borders. For these purposes I’m not including the City of London (the square mile) as a county. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck.

    Here’s a challenge for all of you who like these word quizzes. I have identified 10 six-letter words and 12 seven-letter words ending in “ite” that might be reasonably likely to arise in ordinary conversation/discussion or in writing etc. Your challenge is to name as many of the 22 words as you can for one point each. I am aware that there are a number of valid words and you can list as many as you like - but only ones in my list of 22 of the commonest will count. Proper nouns/words that begin with a capital letter and hyphenated words or words containing apostrophes or slang words are not allowed – neither are American versions of words we spell …ght. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck. REMEMBER - NO POSTS instead you PM me with your guesses any time up to midnight tonight. If possible, please wait until you've completed all the guesses you want to make to avoid too many PMs and to make my job easier. So no hurry and it doesn't matter when you submit the answers because I'll be judging them solely on who has the most correct - and in the event of two or more being level it will be a tie. I hope this is clear and good luck. Tomorrow I’ll post the names of the top entries
