As I mentioned yesterday, Gail and I went to a quiz night to help raise funds for Oxfam.
It was being hosted and compared by a friend of mine called Matt, AKA Lord Beestonia. Although now that he has moved to the neighbouring village, he has tried calling himself Lord Attenborough. But I said that the well known British actor and film director Richard Attenborough may have something to say about it!
Anyway, there were 50 questions in total, together with a picture round. Another friend of mine called Lewis and his mum Karen joined us, together with another couple they knew.
We went by the name of 'Oddshots' as most of us are involved in photography. Alas we didn't win, but we had the satisfaction of doing our bit for charity.
There were quite a few people there, and there was also a singer/guitarist called Martin Jackson, who played to us a couple of times during the evening. He wasn't bad, and produced his own way of playing well known tunes.
My shot, shows Matt in full flow in reading out one of the questions. Matt by the way is also a blogger and edits a local free magazine called The Beestonian. If you want to know more about him and his work, HERE'S A LINK to his website.
