    I organise a quiz night for our local community every couple of months with a view to raising funds for a Christmas party for our senior citizens subsidied, or more hopefully paid for, by these quiz events during the year.



    As our next quiz night is around Valentines Day I thought I would do a picture quiz of famous couples, perhaps a little unconventional in that they may not be married couples but rather couples like Spencer and Hepburn who had a long term relationship without necessarily being formerly hitched.



    Any suggestions please?

    How about Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Olivier & Vivien Leigh or Tony Curtis & Janet Leigh - they were all married. Romy Schneider & Alain Delon - engaged, but never married.



    If it comes to on-screen couples only, it would be Errol Flynn & Olivia De Havilland, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers or Robert Taylor & Eleanor Parker.

    I used to do a quiz years ago and believe that a pucture round along this theme would work really well if one of the couple was instantly recognisable but the other took some memory bank digging.

    Because the participants are mainly quite elderly I try and have about 6 or 7 reasonably easy questions and the remainder a bit tougher. That's not to say that they are by any means dim but they belong to a generation that probably don't go to the cinema any more or keep up with current trends.

    It took me a long time to guauge our audience, at first my quizzes were too difficult and people got fed up so I try and make them fairly easy so our residents get maximum enjoyment out of the quizzes. After all the winners only get a bottle of wine each so it's no big deal!



    I was also thinking of some gay couples like Elton John and David Furness but can't think of any more.
