Riddle Game!

Basically, I'm being a copy-cat. Only thing different from the one in RSA and this one, is this is for riddles only. 
So, for those of you who don't know the rules, I will try to explain. There will be 10 riddles per round. If you answer a riddle correctly, you will get a point! You are allowed to guess as many times as you want. The person that has the most points by the end of the round, wins that round! 
Also, only Phia and I will post the riddles. Please, do not try to post your own because I will delete them. If you want to post riddles, you must do it in a different discussion. 
Thank you! 

Playback foulup

Four days ago I noticed a new style of font on the comments section of my page. I figured it was your new Spring look, but now whenever I want to play a piece of mine or elsewhere one of three things happens:
1) The blue line begins to race across the page before I press play and it plays with the scroll 8 or so bars ahead; 2) it stutters or does not play; 3) It plays (eureka!)
Hardly a good way to entice listeners, wouldn't you say?
Sometimes it stalls and it takes forever to leave the page.

Until this occurrence all had been fine. I have rebooted and my PC seems to be fine in all other aspects. I use Windows 10, Firefox and ver 2.3.2.

I think it was a bad idea...

I think it was a bad idea to try to learn the violin. So, my reason for saying that is this: Back in 2016, I fell off an exercise ball and hit my neck on a wooden arm-rest on a couch. We happen to have a RN and a Physical Therapist at our house. I think it scared the RN when I fell. I laid so still because I thought that I had broken my neck. Anyway, my neck was quite injured but it wasn't broken. I thought it had healed up, but ever since January of this year, when I started the violin, I've had extreme neck problems. I literally have to crack/snap my neck around 10-20 times a day. I was talking to some people and we are thinking that the angle in which you hold a violin was too much for my neck. What do you guys think?
 (I probably should have posted this in the violin group, but, I didn't want to. LOL!)

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" - Update (1 week extension)

So a couple of people have asked for an extension for the first competition, and as we've only had a few of entries, I've decided to give you 1 week to complete your compositions. The one's we've had so far have been excellent, so keep 'em coming!

You now have until Saturday 25th May to complete your compositions. This is an extra 6 days, so be grateful. ;D

I will announce the winners on either Saturday on Sunday, depending on how long it takes me to mark them all. Well done to everyone who's entered so far!
