    QUIZ OF THE MONTH (July- ANSWERS)

    Since the Quizzes in May were very popular, the feature will be continued. However, this month, instead of rating the difficulty lever of each quiz, there will be one quiz with a varied difficulty level of questions. I hope it will continue to be a fun and entertaining way for all to learn something new about 'The Land We Love'. Enjoy. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    <font color="red"> A: The Bath Botanical Gardens, St. Thomas </font>
    -Contrary to public belief, Hope Gardens dating back to 1881 was established over 100 years

    <font color="blue"> The southernmost tip of Jamaica is at: </font>

    <font color="red"> A: Portland Point </font>
    -Despite its name Portland Point is Clarendon. Morant Point, on the other hand, is the Eastermost tip of Jamaica.


    <font color="blue"> Which classic Bob Marley song makes references to 'government yard', cornmeal porridge', and 'Georgie's firelight'? </font>

    <font color="red"> A: No Woman No Cry </font>
    -"I rememba, when we use to sit, in our government yard in Trenchtown..."


    <font color="blue"> "Nine Night" is a celebration in the honour of: </font>

    <font color="red"> A: Deceased person </font>


    <font color="blue"> Assuming nobody has more than one phone, what percentage of Jamaicans have a cellular phone? </font>

    <font color="blue"> How many "Miss World" winners has Jamaica produced? </font>

    <font color="red"> A: 3 Miss Worlds were representing Jamaica </font>

    Re: QUIZ OF THE MONTH (July)

    Luv these quizzes -- keep em coming. Check your answer
    for #1 however. According to wikipedia and other sources,
    St. Catherine parish is made up of the former parishes
    of St.Thomas-in-the-Vale, St. John and yup, ST.DOROTHY.
