Going ‘Up-Market’ Eventually!

You may have noticed that we are having issues with our main site Quiz4free.com. This blog site will eventually become the main site, making it much easier for us to update the site.

We currently use a program called Filezilla which is an FTP program, or ‘App’ as they are now known to update all our sites.

It is much easier to update this blog, as it uses ‘WordPress’, which is a content management system. So by integrating the main site with the blog, we can do away with the third party FTP program and update the site directly from the WordPress dashboard. This will eventually give us more time for uploading new quizzes.

Please be patient while we work out the best way to transfer twelve years of work to this blog.

Gunslinger Tips

Gunslinger Tips

A Cowboy sitting in a saloon one Saturday night recognized an elderly man
standing at the bar who, in his day, had the reputation of being the fastest
gun in the West.

The young cowboy took a place next to the old-timer, bought him a drink and
told him the story of his great ambition. Do you think you could give me
some tips?’ he asked.

The old man looked him up and down and said, ‘Well, for one thing, you’re
wearing your gun too high, tie the holster a little lower down on your
leg.”Will that make me a better gunfighter?’ asked the young man.’Sure
will,’ replied the old-timer.

The young man did as he was told, stood up, whipped out his 44 and shot the
bow tie off the piano player.’That’s terrific!’ said the hot shot. ‘Got any
more tips for me?’

‘Yep,’ said the old man. ‘Cut a notch out of your holster where the hammer
hits it, that’ll give you a smoother draw”Will that make me a better
gunfighter?’ asked the younger man.’You bet it will,’ said the old-timer.

The young man took out his knife, cut the notch, stood up, drew his gun in a
blur, and then shot a cufflink off the piano player.’Wow!’ exclaimed the
cowboy ‘I’m learnin’ somethin’ here. Got any more tips?’

The old man pointed to a large can in a corner of the saloon. ‘See that axle
grease over there? Coat your gun with it.’The young man went over to the can
and smeared some of the grease on the barrel of his gun. ‘No,’ said the
old-timer, ‘I mean smear it all over the gun, handle and all.’

‘Will that make me a better gunfighter?’ asked the young man.

‘No,’ said the old-timer, ‘but when Wyatt Earp gets done playing the piano,
he’s gonna shove that gun up your ass and it won’t hurt as much’.

British Humour – Grown ups only!

British Humour – Grown ups only!

Enjoy:

Having an Irish mixed grill !! New potatoes, roast potatoes, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, waffles and hash browns with chips.



A man walks into a crowded bar with a loaded gun and shouts “who’s been ******g my wife?” A voice in the back shouts ” you don’t have enough bullets”…..



My wife just asked me if her appendix scar made her look unattractive.
Apparently the response of “don’t worry babe, your tits cover it” wasn’t the answer she was looking for.

My wife is suffering from depression. She phoned me the other day and said “I feel like jumping in front of a bus and you’re not doing anything to help”.
So I sent her a timetable.

I cannot stand people who think they’re worse off than everybody else.
My mate Don is brilliant. He had a bad accident where he lost his voice and both legs. Does he make a song and dance about it?. Does he hell!

Super Photo Quiz – Answers

 

 

 

Super Photo Quiz – Answers

1. The Maldives?

Put away your passport (and your sun cream): this perfect white sandy shore
is actually Seilebost Beach in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

2. Mont Blanc?

This is actually the Observatory Gully on Ben Nevis in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands.
Standing at 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level, it’s the highest mountain in the UK.

3. Italy?

Good guess, but this is actually the quirky Portmeirion Village in Gwynedd, North Wales.
It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975
in the style of an Italian village. If it looks familiar, that might be because
it was used as the location for surreal 60s spy drama The Prisoner.
4. Ancient Greece?

 

No, this is Cornwall. The Minack Theatre is an open-air theatre,

constructed above a gully with a rocky granite outcrop jutting into the sea.

The theatre is at Porthcurno, 4 miles from Land’s End in Cornwall, England.

 

5. Normandy?

 

Nope, Cornwall again! St Michael’s Mount’s Cornish name means “grey rock in the woods”
and may represent a folk memory of a time before Mount’s Bay was flooded.
The Cornish legend of Lyonesse, an ancient kingdom said to have extended from
Penwith toward the Isles of Scilly, also talks of land being inundated by the sea.

6. Cyprus?
This might look like a Mediterranean sun-trap, but it’s actually Achmelvich Beach
in the Highlands of Scotland. Sutherland, to be precise.
7. Polynesia?

 

You don’t have to go to the Pacific Ocean to visit this reef-like inlet.
It’s actually part of the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. Two miles to the north of
Lizard Village lies the secluded Kynance Cove, considered
one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

 

8. South of France?

 

Although it looks Provence-like, the road signs and very British-looking onlookers
clearly show that this picture-perfect village is actually in England.
It’s called Cockington (stop sniggering) and it’s only a
stone’s throw from Torquay in Devon.

 

9. Portugal?

 

This lookalike starts with the same letters, at least. This is Porthmeor Beach in St Ives, Cornwall.
The deep blue water is popular with surfers.

 

10. New Zealand?

 

This is actually a view from the top of the deliciously named Cheddar Gorge
in Somerset’s Mendip Hills. No hobbits here!

 

11. India?
This Taj Mahal style building is Brighton’s iconic Royal Pavilion.
It was built in three stages as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales,
who became the Prince Regent in 1811
12. Skyrim?
No, it’s not actually a location from a video game.
This is the spectacular Smoo Cave in Durness, Sutherland
(Scottish Highlands) The cave is unique within the UK
in that the first chamber has been formed by the sea
and the inner chambers by rainwater.
