Is it Frisian?

I once had a house mate from Teesside, who said the Frisian sea-shanties I had on tape sounded like his local fishermen

Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

The lions never sleep, eh?

Common characteristic is identified.

1. I was thinking of something else (but will accept Aureola)

When you have 7 and 10, the oOo will be obvious.

Re: Continuous Quiz: Tenpin Bowling

If I may....

1. Religious Radiance
2. Monkey Bread Tree
3. Indian Cricketer
4. Australian School
5. Natural Stuffing
6. Defamation
7. Small Weight
8. Type of Sherry
9. Set of 78 Cards
10. Freedom

All the answers have a common characteristic, and there is a specific odd one out.

Re: Continuous Quiz: High Brow

Berlioz wrote an opera called The Trojans. Proverbially, they worked hard. But who was the Soviet miner whose hard work was mythologised to inspire his compatriots?
