Since winning the series, she has had many conversations with friends and relatives and is pleased to have met all the interesting people she has played against.
The FunkQuest Tag ​Team Challenge Final proved to be as entertaining as promised, with Barb Braendlein and Phil Pelucha facing up to their opponants Ann Smith and Leana Delle.Barb was first to chose from the FunKQuest Board and choosing the '​Ballerina feet' meant that Phil had to answer the question - "What job would an octopus be good at?" ​His answer 'a Chef' especially with all the pots it would have to fling aroundAnn as head of the pink team chose Leana to answer the question - "What are you embarressed about being good at?" ​ Not being embarressed but being 'looked down upon' Lean​a found it difficult to show off her handyman skills to men​.Question 2 and B​arb chose the 'Pegs' icon. She says she has a 'mental escape hatch' when she finds herself wishing she was somewhere else.Ann Chose the 'Horse' Icon and revealed that she drinks 4 pints of water a day, which is a very ​healthy thing to do.​Phil was chosen by Barb to answer the third question. He would never 'accidentally' steal something. He describes himself as a '​Wisdom Magpie' - only good if you never actually use the wisdom on the person you got it from.Lean​a has; learnt how to draw using charcoal, learnt how to stop it smearing, learnt how to package her pictures and learnt how to use her payment app. Just in this last week?Question 4 was answered by Barb for her team. She chose the 'Hedgehog' icon and we found out that she doesn't like to yell - at leat not at people - but inanimate objects beware!Ann doesn't like to show her age but the most historic things she has seen in her lifetime gives us an idea.Barb generously gave, the final question for her team, to Phil to answer. His love of chicken meant that the animal he would bring back from extinction was the DoDo. He really loves his chicken!Question 5 for the pink team and Ann passed the question about books to her author friend Leana to answer (of course). Leanas' love of a certain author, while not reading each of his book 5 times, ​she had bought and read all his books in Hardback
These two ladies may look familiar, and you would be right to think that you have seen them somewhere before, the reason is; Barb and Lisa played each other in Semi Final 1 of FunkQuest Season 3. Barb was beaten in the semi final but has agreed to return as 'Sheriff' due to unforseen circumstances. So they play again in this FunkQuest Season 3 Grand Final.Barb was first to choose an Icon. Her answer to the question was that generally she is very easy to shop for, as she loves opening presents regardless of what is inside. She is not very good at telling others what to buy for her.Question 1 for Lisa she chose the' baby shoes' Icon and explained that the last song she danced to was part of a compilaton album of 'Soul Train'. She was dancing in her bathroom to Stevie Wonder.Barb was very happy to answer the next question about dealing with 'cold callers'. When the caller is a person, she likes to keep them talking. Robot callers, not so much. Lisa did not have to name her Craziest relative, in case they were listening but she described the sort of person who always is in the middle of everything, no matter what the topic they have done it, seen it, tried it, started it, finished it. I am sure we all have one of these.Question 3, Barb chose the 'Puffin' Icon and revealed that she was 16 when she got her first bank card. For a couple of years she was dilligent in making sure it always had five dollars in the account.Having been there and seeing animals in their natural habitat and the glory of the scenery, Lisa was able to answer 'Where should everyone go at least once?' with a great deal of enthusiasm.Barb decided in her fourth answer that the record she really wanted to break was that of 'How many times you can lose on FunkQuest but still get to play again.' Not a real record but fun anyway.Lisa chose the 'Sumo Wrestlers' Icon. 'Have you ever had your palm read' was the question and she answered that when she went to India she had done it. The palm reader left her with more questions than answers.'How would you describe humanity to Aliens?' was the final question for Barb. If the aliens were intent on world domination she would explain about the diseases we carry or try to tell them about love and fear or even try to bargain with bits of the world.Final Question of the game was for Lisa and the circus act she would love to take part in is the 'Spinning circle' which the ladies of the 'Cirque de Soleil' do their acrobatics in.​What is FunkQuest ?Funkquest is a fun interactive online conversation game that features five rounds.Funksters (players) view a board containing 20 individual icons (pictures) Funksters select an icon from the board which most tweaks their interest.

FunkQuest - Season 3 - semi final 2 - Barb Braendlein v Jean RoborIn this second Semi Final match of FunkQuest Season 3 you will see a familiar face - Barb Braendlein. Barb was also a player in ​the first semi final of this season and ​ ​​ has agreed to be the Sheriff for this second round as a player did not turn up.Barb chose the first Icon and therefore answered question 1 - 'How fast can you learn something new? This all depends on how much she wants to learn the thing. If she is interested in it she is usually a quick study.The 'dinosaur' Icon was chosen by Jean for her first question and we found that while not using paper maps she uses 'google maps' religiously, even when going on short journeys. She can get lost quite easily.Barb revealed that if she was a vegetable she would be a Leek. Filled with tasty goodness on the white end of the root.Jean said that she often feels foolish when talking and answering questions online. She may often look foolish, to some people, when getting involved with young children and reading books but she doesn't mind that.Question 3 and Barb chose the 'Swiss Army Knife' icon. If she was to invent something, ​ it would be crutches that do not make your shoulders hurt. Her recent foot problem has ​meant, ​weight movement through hands and shoulders has been painful.'What word do you always spell wrong?' led to Jean, Barb and Jonathan discussing ​ words that are easily spelt incorrectly.Barb next revealed that she' tells herself off' when she realises that she could have said something different after meeting with people she should really know.Jean chose the 'butterfly' icon and the last time she went swimming was over a year ago. She is not a great swimmer but loves to go to the beach and swim in the sea.For her final Question Barb had to revel who would be her 'deputy'. She would choose her sister for this role as she seems to be good at everything she does.The final question of the game was for Jean. She chose the 'giraffe' icon ​and answered the question 'What is the oddest thing you have seen in public? Her answer shows that there are lots of odd things to see in this world.
FunkQuest - Season 3 - SemiFinal 1 Barb Braendlein v Lisa Fey​In this, the first Semi - Final of FunkQuest Season 3, both Barb and Lisa, ​are fighting to maintain their unbeaten status. However, only one of them can reach the final!Lisa answered question 1 after choosing the 'glasses of wine' icon. With no experience of the job she was assigned, after a great interview, to a boss who was really too busy to help his struggling apprentice.Barb confessed that, because of her broken foot and having to walk with crutches, the most exciting thing that was happening at the moment was being able to wash her hair.Lisa explained in her ​Question 2 that the thing that 'makes here roll her eyes' was someone saying 'Yes, but...' in answer to a request. The 'but' is usually a big one Why not just say no.Barb ​is not going to be jumping anywhere at the moment and especially not the ​queue, but she is not a queue jumper anyway. It ​annoys her when cars go fast to get in front of the line and try to merge in.​The place Lisa would love to visit is one of the areas of the world which still contain Gorilla families, in the hope that she can get close while they ignore her.Barb chose the 'Shoes' icon for her third question, '​Which planet would you like to visit?' and not being that ambitious to go anywhere out of this world, staying on Earth works for her​.​We can stop using more than we need, by not buying more than we need. Lisa has a great ​wardrobe idea and a way to give stuff away.Question 4, and Barb chose the 'Russia' icon, particularly appropriate as she has named her crutches, Boris and Natasha​. In answer to the question asked, she would like to invite her n​eighbours over for a drink as long as it's not alcoholic.​Lisa chose the​'Paint' icon for her final question. It all depends on how important the thing is to make Lisa try, try and try again​. And if she can't do it she is not afraid to ​'Phone a friend'.For the final question of ​​Semi - Final 1, Barb told how she last stayed awake for more than 24 hours, when in college. As a travelling Jazz pianist with bands and singers she often had to stay up for a long time.
FunkQuest - Tag Team Challenge - Semi Final 2 - Barb and Phil v Lisa and Ginger​Lisa and Ginger ​(​Orange team)were the first to go in this Semi-Final 2 Episode of FunkQuest Tag Team Challenge.Lisa, as head funkster of her team chose the 'Lion' icon. The question; ​ 'Who comes when you call?' was answered by Ginger​ and we found that she can make a variety of noises to call her dog. ​As Head funkster of the pink team, Barb chose the strawberry cake' icon and answered the question; 'If you died tomorrow who would come to your Funeral?' She ​had already thought about, and the usual 'close family' subjects were mentioned, as well as someone a bit more contenscious.Second ​question- and Lisa revealed her love of her first car. With it she became a real party animal.Phil answered the Pinks team question 2 - Living in Liverpool (England) he was already too close ​to the North Pole. He can't deal with being cold and travels to hot countries to stay warm. He has been known to wear 'Long​johns' beneath his suit at work.Ginger wishes that she could play the piano. ​The ability to play more than 'Chopsticks' would be great, especially ​when she comes across a stray piano.In his quest for warmth, it is only right that Phil has seen lots of 'famous land marks' from around the world. What are they? Watch the video to find outLisa answered her question four- 'When was the last time you drank a pint of milk?' and exclaimed she belived she was 'lactose intolerant'. Milky drinks of any kind are out and now so is coffee. She is feeling great.​The 'nervous girl' icon was Barbs 4th choice, which turned out to be very apt as she told the story of her first swimming lessons, which happened ​in an outside ​pool.Question 5 for the orange team was answerd by Ginger. The best thing about life for her is, being grateful every day for everything we have.​Final Question​ and the 'Skiing' Icon​ was chosen by Barb, answered by Phil. 'What irritates you about your neighbours?' 'The fact that I have​ them'. he said. To find out all the reasons he gives watch the video.
FunkQuest -Season 3 - Episode 4 - WT Hamilton v Zakary Haines​Wayne (WT) and Zak are the last players, before the semi finals, in this short season 3.Wayne chose the 'guitar' icon for his first question 'How do you see yourself physically?' He sees himself as very sexy (ha ha). He went to the gym before covid 19 to burn off the calories he gets from drinking beer.Zac re​vealed he has moved house many times ​through his teenage years, he has been settled for the last 3 years. He doesn't like the new year, as it is during those cold months he used to move. He has however mastered the art of packing boxes.Question 2 - ​Wayne likes small gathering rather than big parties, as the conversations flow more easily and stories can be told again and again.Zak thought about a variety of ​Artists who could​ paint his portrait but chose Leonard de Vinci, because of the way he thought out of his realm and pushed himself differently in his era in timeThe 'squirrel' icon question; ​reminded Zac ​of the american magician 'Chris Angel'. His extreme stuff and pain toler​ance was considered 'dark magic'.In Wayne's third question, he told us that before Covid 19 he didn't binge on TV s​hows but now he is hooked on 'Dark' - a time travelling, mind bending​ ​series, much like 'L​ost'.Wayne revealed that his mind tends to go blank while he is driving, he travels a lot but forgets where he is as he drives.Zak is usually an easy going sort of bloke but when he was seventeen he showed courage, by complaining about the service he and his mates were getting at a diner.Zak's fifth question showed us that he was a footballer rather than an actor at school. He did enjoy participating in student radio at this time.The ​final ​question, ​came from the 'Nebular' icon. Wayne joked about the fact that if he was in the ​'Amazing Race​' - an​ american TV show - he and his wife would not reach the first leg of the race. He revealed that getting to an event, half an hour late, ​was a good thing​!
FunkQuest - Season 2 -Ann Smith- crowning victory episodeUndefeated on any of her FunkQuest challenges, Ann Smith is most definitely the Grand Champion Funkster of FunkQuest Season 2.
​Jean and Laurie are two more, brand new, players, trying to get the 'Funk Out' in ​Season 3 ​​of FunkQuest.Jean​ was first to choose an​ Icon - the ​Battleship' - a childhood reminder of a loved game. - Her question revealed that she had never learned to do CPR (cardiopulmo​nary res​uscitation) but it was on her' list to do' now she had grandchildren and babysitting duties.Laurie's worst boss; was a narcissistic shouter, who she reported to HR, after he shouted at her for something that wasn't her fault.​In Jeans second question she told us of jumping the queue at a store by heading for the self serve section, where, she was pulled up by the man behind her who she hadn't noticed. Wearing masks could have made it worse, but a conversation, eased a long wait in the queue.Laurie chose the 'bouncy house' icon for her second question. She always likes to hear bad news first. If you hear the good news first, you are left ​to stew on the bad news after. Looking back on her life she realises that most times, things turn out alright.The planet Pluto is a bit of a conundrum. Laurie would like to visit Pluto just to prove it is a planet - but in the end she thinks that she would be dead long before she got there.The 'Accordion' icon was chosen by Jean and; her 'lucky charm' - was a 'mood ring'. This was a christmas present she had opened early, then re-wrapped so as not to be found out. All the rage at the time - the black faced ring changed colour with your mood.Question 4 was for Jean and if ​she was to be 'stuck somewhere in time' she would like it to be in the early ​20th century. As a fly on the wall she could watch how her parents used to live and work and perhaps manage to get back to ​the 21st century with a greater understanding of what they had to go through.Lauries question 5 revealed that she was a trier. Throughout her early life ​she had been put down by people telling her she was stupid or not smart enough, so she tried, tried and tried again and is now a teacher with a Masters degree.Never being able to make a gingerbread house Jean chose that Icon; with the question - 'When did you have to stay awake for 24 hours.' Her answer ​was at a 'youth club lock in' event. She stayed up mainly because she didn't want anyone to play a joke on her.
The FunkQuest Tag Team Challenge is a short competition for a few select FUNKSTERS- two semi finals and a Final. The team has 2 players one ​plays as the head funkster and is the decision maker for Icons chosen - the question that arises from that, can be answered by either player.In this game, the Orange team consists of Ann Smith and Leana Dell (who just happen to be Champion Funksters) ​and the Pink team of Vicki Wusche and Tom Evans.​The 'guitar' icon was chosen by Ann, the ​question was answered by Leana who saw ​herself physically as 'not to bad for her age' and as good- looking as any 'second-hand fiddle'.The 'Waterfall' icon was chosen by Vicki and answered by Tom. After a short examination of the home he is living in now he answered that, over the years he has moved house about 8 times.Question 2 and Ann revealed that she prefers small parties to large gatherings. Although extrovert on the outside she is really a bit of a wallflower and quite shy.Vicki also chose to answer her question 2 and the artist which she would have paint her is her Grandaughter​, who, at the moment ​ only paints egg-shaped tubes with smiles. Vicki would be very happy to be remembered for her smile.Do​ the '10 Commandments' need another one. Ann suggested 'Always be Kind'.Tom was impressed by the magician Paul Foster Case. An american illusionist who seems able to travel through time.In answering question 4, Leana showed that not all Canadians are as complient as they seem, after she complained about the damage to a drawing desk she had ordered.When Vicki's mind goes blank its usually while she is tending her garden seeds and plants - this is a new hobby which has grown since Covid 19 lockdown.Final Question for the Orange team and Leana was allowed to choose the Icon. Ann ​answered the question 'Have you ever starred in a school play?' which seemed perfect for the canadian actor.Tom got to choose the 'eye of God' nebular Icon and the answer to 'Who is always late'? in ​Vicki's household is her husband Bob.
FunkQuest - Season 3 - Episode 2 - Lisa Fey v Sarah Ross Two new funksters to FunkQuest in this second episode of Season 3.Working on time differences and the fact that it was still early in America, Lisa chose the 'Trumpet' icon for her first question, to wake her up. The last ​costume she wore was a blue sari which she had bought in india. ​She felt that some times people need to get out of the ordinary.Sarah was asked where she would build an Ark​​. You may soon be finding, ​somewhere around the equator, ​ lots of little ​Arks or Pods floating around together​, because of Covid 19.Sarahs answer to question​ 2, showed that the game she spent most time playing was 'catch' (the ball game). Not only as a child but in ​Vietnam in an orphanage - where a variety of things​ ​were thrown to be caught.Question 2 for Lisa was about wasting time. She likes to spend time sitting alongside nature and also 'people watching'.Something you wouldn't know about Lisa is - that she is on first name terms with Michael Jordan yes! the Michael Jordan (basketball) they went to the same university.Sarah chose the 'bobsleigh' icon for her third question; the best thing she has ever got for free, was a first class upgrade on a brand new 747 a​irplane from Hong Kong to London, WOW!Question 4 was Sarahs to an​swer, and she revealed that on her many roadtrips the most scary was in Caracas - picked up by a stranger - It might be a James Bond movie.Lisa chose the 'little house' Icon ​and her go to Karaoke song is "Sweet Caroline" (Neil Diamond) - sung with enthusiasm rather than with quality.Lisa final question was 'Who was top of the bill at the​ last concert you went to? Her reply was, John Legend, a man who can really get the audience ​in the mood.The final question of the game was Sarahs; ​ she would love to have an adventure with ​ Elsa from the film "Frozen".​What is FunkQuest ?Funkquest is a fun interactive online conversation game that features five rounds.Funksters (players) view a board containing 40 individual icons (pictures) Funksters select an icon from the board which most tweaks their interest.

Ann and Teri are the first two friends to play in our new funkquest series of 'one off' challenges.Ann took the first question by choosing the 'Highland Cattle icon. Delicately proceeding without introducing politics and naming no names, she related that she now boycotts the clothing stores of a certain famous ​american CEO because of his behaviour.Teri chose the 'fish' icon and her overrated piece of technology is the mobile/cell phone. This technology along with tablets and laptops, ha​s stopped ​people ​connecting properly. Unfortunately, they may be overrated but are essential at this time.Question 2 and Ann would go for brains rather than looks. Someone ​with a sense of humour or even 'sexy ugly' like tommy Lee Jones. A young Sam Elliot - wow!Teri, related how she used to hate what she was doing but ​ is very satisfied with what she does now. She has a job she loves, a healthy family and feels that it is good to be alive now, despite the scariness of covid 19.Ann loves fairground rides. She doesn't like heights exactly but as long as she is sat down she is fine. The only ride she disliked was the 'Zipper' that was a real 'barf' machine.Teri chose the 'castle' icon and related that she has a love hate relationship ​about going to the Zoo. She hates the animals being kept in cages and wishes they could be free, yet understands the good ​Zoos do, to keep animals from extinction.When only 7 years old Ann spent her first day at work ​in an antique shop. Her aunts store was an antique in itself without running water- but ​was swatting flies such a good thing to be doing, around all those precious items?Teri's question ​4 revealed that the person who always smells nice in her life, is her husband, she likes how he smells and he ​loves a certain toiletry company.​Question 5 and Ann chose the 'monster van' icon. If she was stuck in a nuclear bunker she would love John Cleese to be stuck in there with her. He and the Monty Python team are greatly admired, as she has an 'absurd' sense of humour.​Teri's final question 'How many pairs of socks do you own?' led to a surprising answer. She certainly doesn't wear 'socks with sandals' whate​ver the weather!
FunkQuest - Season 2 - Grand Champion Final - Ann Smith v Dr. Kimya Nuru DennisTwo very adept​ and well known funksters in this Final, but when it comes down to the vote, who will be crowned Grand Champion of FunkQuest Season 2?Kimya chose the 'clownfish' icon ​for the opening question. How fast can she get dressed? - pretty fast as it turns out. ​ ​Meetings, held within minutes of hearing about them and being a night owl ​and waking up just in time, have honed her dressing skills.Ann explained that the best place she had got lost was, on ​honeymoon, on a berry filled but mudd​y trailQuestion 2 and Kimya revealed she had two ​pair of sunglasses ​which she loves but cannot wear because she gets sweaty in them. She has used them to illustrate the idea that, we need to be able to see reality but not blind ourselves to what is happening around us.Ann chose the 'alarm clock' icon with the appropriate ​question 'Are you always early or always late?' She generally tends to be behind. A high school experience about being the first at her home room on day 1 caused her some anxiety, which ruined that day. It is probably best to be just in time and not too early.Kimya prefers to be in a Hotel or a ​Bed and Breakfast, when away. Even before covid 19 she took hand sanitizer - you never know who has been in before you.Ann communicates with her spouse very well, they discuss and don't argue. On harder subjects its easier to talk in the car, both looking ​forward and not meeting eye to eye which could allow things to escalate.Question 4 and Kimya chose the 'waterfall' icon. She last lost her purse/wallet about 20 years ago, since then she keeps a good eye on her things. It may be paranoia or her criminology background, ​but if it's gone it has been stolen!Ann's Inuit knowledge, led her to chose the 'rocks' icon for her question 4. She likes technology for what it can do for us but finds technical stuff mentally frustrating, she lives with it but does not enjoy it.Where does Kimya spend most of her day? - usually at work. At home or in the office of 'Non Profit'. When she can, she goes out fo​r walks aroun​d the harbour area of Baltimore.Final question of the Final and the Series - What is the best thing you can buy for 1£/$​/euro? Ann can buy a roll of 'dog poop bags' perfect for the discerning dog owner and perfect for keeping the sidewalks clean.
In this one off challenge edition of FunkQuest, we match up our, ​Season One Champion Funkster-Leana Dell, ​with Alexander Stafford, MP for Rother Valley.As Alexander had never played Funkquest before, Leana was chosen to go first to show him how it goes.Leana chose the 'Pumpkin icon and answered the question about how she took to losing games. She said that she doesn't mind losing to others but is very competive against herself. At golf she always likes to be able to beat her last game. In most games though its about fun.Alexander's first question was 'How many photos do you have on your phone? - he revealed that he had possibly thousands, many of which were s​tored in ​ 'cloud'. He used to like​ big cameras with Zoom lenses but realises the HD pictures taken on mobile/cell phones are as good,​ these days.Going on a date is always stressful; ​ ​who is supposed to pay the bill on a first date! Leana made a big 'faux pasF' and insulted her Texan date by offering to pay, then insulted her Canadian date by not offering to go halves. Someone should write some Rules.'Where can you see the best views?' was Alexanders second question. As ​MP ​for Rother Valley he was very diplomatic in his first answer. However his best views are the ones that have his family in them.Question 3 and Leana doesn't really prank people, although she may have made prank phone calls when younger. ​Alexander was asked if we had lost the art of a good prank? He felt that a good wholesome prank was ​ok, ​but verbal abuse or physical attack was not a 'prank'.Alexander chose the 'fruit' icon for his third question. His first guest on his 'talk show' would probably be Boris Johnson - the question slide picture for this icon was the 'Crusades' and he was prompted, by history, into ​thinking that ​ Julius Caese​r would be a more fascinating guest.Of all the animals in the world; Leana chose the 'cat' to be given the power of speech. Dogs, ​can almost talk to you anyway ​through th​eir facial and body language, but cats are ​generally unreadable. They would probably insult you if they could speak!The 'Route 66' sign was the american icon, icon, Alexander chose to say that, his favourite chocolate bar/s were the Flake/Twirl​ - one being a chocolate covered version of the other - and with a cup of tea a KitKat.​What is FunkQuest ?Funkquest is a fun interactive online conversation game that features five rounds.Funksters (players) view a board containing 40 individual icons (pictures) Funksters select an icon from the board which most tweaks their interest.

We are entering the last ​game of season 2 before the Final show. Ann or Sarah, Kimya or Alyson who will turn out to be the Grand Champion of Funkquest this ​season.

Who would come when she calls - her dogSarah's next question was about her first car.

FunkQuest -Season 2 - Semi Final 1 - Alyson Lex v Dr. Kimya Nuru DennisWe are now at the Semi Final stage of FunkQuest season 2 and taking part ​are 2 very experienced Funksters, so listen well.The round began with Alyson choosing the 'city scape icon'. The way she tends to remember things is through Mnemonics (using ​easier words/ images to remember more complicated or multiple ideas), She first learned this at high school.Kimyas first question was 'How many questions do you ask'. Her answer was; that if people are interested in what you have to say they will ask questions, if they are mostly silent you will find that they are thinking about other things and not really listening. ​Question 2 for Kimya was about her greatest achievement. She remembers speaking out at a board meeting when others were quiet ​, knowing that something had not been done when it should have. She also felt that keeping close to family during Covid 19 was an achievement too.Alysons second answer involved a very comfy chair​, which was bought for her ​ ​husband but soon ​taken for herself. ​We also find that her second favourite chair is her ergonomic office chair.The 'digger' was the next Icon to provoke Alysons interest and she felt that she would spend her 'last night on earth' writing letters to family and friends​, ​writing specifically ​to her young son for him to open at milestones in his life.Kimya has developed a habit of saying "Go Away" she wishes that women ​could all learn this habit and be able to say 'no' when asked to do things for others that ​are​diguised in seemingly innocent conversations.Kimya chose the 'skydiver' icon for question 4 and revealed that her last fight was about 20 years ago. ​She feels that people don't have to be silent warri​ors and sometimes a good 'whoopin' needs to be given.Alyson last took a taxi when whe was alone in Sandiego for a conference. She feels safer in a proper taxi rather than in an uber one as she knows they have had back checks and can be relied on.Alyson revealed in her final answer that she would love Morgan Freeman to be the narrator of her life story​ (who wouldn't) but in real life, it would probably be her ​own inner voice and the voices of people she has known especially her mothers and husbands voices.The final question of the game went to Kimya​. We find out that she is very de​cisive and adamant. She likes honest people who have made up th​eir minds and who know themselves.
FunkQuest - Season 2 - Quarter final 4 - Lora Cheadle v Sarah ElkinsSarah and L​ora get to play each other a second time because of circumstance caused by Covid 19, so we have a second chance to listen to even more of their funky ideas.L​ora started the game by explaining; how fast she could probably learn something new. It all depended on if she had some of the skills already, it would be quite quickly​, if she would have to learn everything from the start that would be different.Sarah first question was about when she last used a map. Her reply was that she had recently gone hiking in the mountains where there was no satnav so was relying on a map to keep her away from Grisly Bear ​berry eating areas.Question 2 for Lora was about ashes, mainly hers, and where she would like them to be scattered. Not being around by then it didnt really matter to her but she hoped her children would have memories of areas they spent time together and spread them there.A secret hide out would no longer be secret as Sarah revealed she would have 2 hidouts.One in her kitchen and another in the Flat Head lane area but it would still have to have a kitchen,Lora in her third answer would ask a crystal ball to tell her how she could always know if what she was doing was the right thing, it would take away ​​a lot of doubt.Sarah chose the ​Uluru (Ayres rock) icon and answered the question about buying a present then keeping it for yourself her answer was harmless enough.If you have never had the chance to swim in a warm sea and later watch turtle eggs being laid in the sand, then you will really envy L​oras fourth answer​Sarah was asked in question 4 if she knew anyone who always told the same joke, and being in a Band, Sarah knew the bass player always told the audience a joke as they played and more often than not it was the same one, which ironically always seemed funny.Lora's final question came from choosing the large glass fronted house icon. She admitted to being an avid reader and so was unable to come up with one favourite Author.The last ​question of the game was Sarah's she chose the Giraffe icon and told her story about being on stage and having to announce that the evening was supposed to have involved wearing bikinis. A rather inebriated man danced in front of her in his girlfriends bra and thong. It's something she won't forget!

Samuel L Jackson came to mindAnne closed the show by explaining that she was the luckiest person she knew because ​she had her husband and he was the luckiest because he had her - 2 very different people b​ut both blessed.Ann and Lisa are the third pair to play in the FunkQuest quarter finals and are old hands at this by now.​Lisa started play with the answer to 'How many questions do you ask? - She always has to ask at least 5 why questions deep - this is so she can get to the true answer.Anns first question 'Where have you seen a ghost' might have been a tricky one but she was certainly able to come up with a good 'ghost story'.​Leaving her family house and home in America when she got married and moving all the way to live in Canada - a place she know nothing about, ​ actually learning to live there was ​ Lisas greatest achievement.Question 2 for Ann ​could have seem quite personal but her answer about finding satisfaction was that she was surprised by ​her husband​, she's not easily surprised​ and that was very satisfying.​Her third answer - Lisa revealed, ​that if she was to be a secret ​code name it would be Detective Fierce and Ferocious (DFF) as she can be very protective of thingsAnns third question was about having a habit.

FunkQuest - Season 2 -Quarter Final 2 - Bryan Falchuk v Dr. Kimya Dennis​You will find out that both Kimya and Bryan are experts in their respective fields and this Second Quarter Final episode is full of insightful ​ and thought proving ideas.Question 1 was; 'Where does power come from?' Bryan felt that we all have power within ourselves - and we need to really find out what really matters to us personally so that we can fight against the power​s which hold us back.​Kimya answered her first question about building an ark - she would literally and figuratively build arks (arcs) to connect people around the world so to join together ​to beat systemic attitudes.​Question 2 - and Kimya and Bryan both took this question ​; 'How do you waste time?' and felt the question problematic because this sort of time allows you space to recover and recuperate so you can then continue to help others.Bryan chose the bobsleigh icon on the board for question 3 - answering about the best thing he got for Free. Having felt worthless for many years, he helped himsel​f transform into who he is now ​without having to go on a costly course.Kimya, spoke about her latest dream for her third question, feeling that we generally dreeam about the things we have talked about during the day.Kimya answered the 'fruit waff​le'​ next. Her last road trip was a six hour drive to check up on her house. It took so long because she didn't want to use the highway. She felt that ​seeing scenery was he​althier mentally.Bryan had to ​ confess he had cheated in school when young​ but more importantly had not cheated on his diet although he was allowed a 'cheat day'. "How much do you really value yourself if you are willing to ​cheat?"Final Question for Bryan told us his dad had seemed old when he ​was child, but even now, ​in his seventies h​is dad was very a​ctive​ so not that old really. He knew of older people but his wifes grandma was 92.Ki​mya ended the game by choosing th​e Pyramid. Mythical creatures were not really her type of thing. ​ However the Knowledge, we had gained as people, through the centuries - the mythical ​stories and religious ​histories show just how we can label and ​harm people.
