If these are the answers, what is the question?
Just how good are you at general knowledge? Can you take value from hours spent playing Trivial Pursuit and the likes, and name that year in a flash?
Well, now’s your chance, as I present to you a rundown of events from one particular 12-month period.
Get those thinking caps on, as we are about to embark on our journey!
Year we go…
The Nintendo 64 was released.
Jerry Maguire and Trainspotting hit the cinemas.
America counted its lucky stars with the Atlanta Olympic Games and the first-ever Major League Soccer season.
Football fever swept over England as it prepared to host the showpiece European Championships.
A wave of euphoria at NASA as the Mars Global Surveyor was launched; and a wave of something rather less exciting on home shores as mad cow disease hit Britain and Princess Diana and Prince Charles officially divorced.
You guessed the year yet?
It was, of course, 1996.
While all these events were taking place, I was taking strides into the professional sphere of words…and there’s been no reunion, no comeback, or no remake since (there has, however, been some serious beats dropped by Wilko Wilkes. Be sure to check out the CRS Editorial rap for a catchy singalong).
Now into my 26th year of active editing, proofreading and copywriting, it is with immense pride I’m a trusted pair of hands to make words work.
If like the Spice Girls you Wannabe singing loud and proud, be sure to put your trust in an accredited professional who is recognised within the industry, and whose knowledge can save you time AND money.
Heed the advice of the Gallagher brothers from the same year and Don’t Look Back in Anger. Entrust your treasured work to an award-winning wordsmith with an Oasis of happy clients.
