    Riddles

    1. I was driving at midnight on Jan. 31. It was freezing cold in Yorkshire, England. I was on an isolated unpaved road when my car battery went dead. The headlights went off, and I coasted to a stop. There were no moon or stars out, and no human-made lights visible. Yet I clearly saw a mouse cross in front of me, and could tell that it was brown, not gray.
    How is this possible?

    2. What word is suggested by the letters HIJKLMNO?

    3. How much food can you eat on an empty stomach?

    4. My whole is diligent. Remove my third and it is finished. Remove its second and it's a furrow. Remove its second and it describes this puzzle to those who cannot solve it.

    5. Which of the following is NOT a berry?
    A strawberry, B raspberry, C blueberry, D huckleberry, E pumpkin.
