    Bill asked his Granny how old she was. Rather than giving him a straight answer, she replied:

    “I have 6 children, and there are 4 years between each one and the next. I had my first child (your Uncle Peter) when I was 19. Now the youngest one (Your Auntie Jane) is 19 herself. That’s all I’m telling you!”

    How old is Bill’s Granny?

    • Difficult eh? No takers so far. Make a wild guess!

      • The answer is 58, and I’m not guessing.

        Granny had her first child when she was 19 and her youngest 20 years later when she was 39. Now, 19 years later, she is 58.

        • Well done. Thats right!
          She is quite young for a granny, but thats because she had her first child at 19 years!

        • @gina145 I have transferred the points to you

        • @gina145 I made a terrible mistake and transferred 145 points to you. If you received them, can you transfer them back to me!!! Apologies for the error. If there is a problem with the transfer, I will try to contact admin!

          • Yikes, @ross, that was a bad mistake. I was in the middle of lunch but when I came to my computer I noticed the mistake immediately. The points should be safely back in your account now.

            • @gina145 Phew! Thanks a lot for that!! I appreciate it. I think, when I typed your username in the recipient section the 145 got typed in the points to transfer section! Thankfully you were not over your limit, otherwise the points would have disappeared. I’d better be more careful from now on.

            • @gina145 I have transferred 10 points to you for the extra work I ended up giving you and also as the question was not easy. Hope you received the correct points this time!

            • Thanks @ross. That was very generous of you. The idea that points could disappear is really frightening and 145 points if very close to my limit, so on most days that could have been a problem.

            • Now you’ve given me an incentive to get my limit increased. The only reason I haven’t applied for personal blogger yet is because I’m not sure how to do it, and I’ve never reached my limit so I didn’t think there was a rush.

            • @gina145 I too rarely blog so never reach more than 20 points a day I think. So Ive not tried upgrading my limit. Once I have time to blog regularly, I will try to increase my limit.

            • @ross I usually publish two or three blog posts every week, but the only ones that I’m able to get referred views from are posts to my bonsai blog and I haven’t written a new post for that one for a while so the views have dried up. If I’d promoted a post in the last couple of days I’d probably have earned my 25 referral points before I logged on.
