A world of Trivia

Despite being quite popular, the various trivia related pages on Dear Grandpa Pencil have grown up in a rather random fashion.

I consider them too important to leave as they are, so have tidied them up, expanded them and given them a brand new home at 'A World of Trivia', that is now ready for you to check out.

All TRIVIA RELATED pages will be removed from this site on June 1st. 2017
