…..that’s us (a combined British/American/aussie/Indian team) erupting in joy after winning the Thursday Trivia-nite (briefly mentioned here) – and not only won, but having cracked the additional Jackpot question, thereby pocketing a cool thousand odd Aussies dollars. Feels wonderful when a somewhat calculated guess pays off.

For the record, the jackpot question was: Which musical instrument has derived from the ancient middle-eastern instrument called ‘shawm’ ?

Care to guess (no googling !) ?
