New Contest

Hello Everybody.I am here with a new contest.This time also I will ask 5 riddles but for a change,this time I will review 2 blogs.That means 2 winners in this contest.So here I go:-

1.What's everything to someone, but nothing to everyone else?
2.What object has keys that open no locks, space but no room, and you can enter but not go in?
3.If you like pretty gems that sparkle and shine, I invite you to dig in my virtual mine. My first is purple, fit for a king, My second is green where Dorothy did her thing. My third is red, July's birthstone as well, My fourth is seen in strings and is found inside a shell. My fifth is hard, pure Carbon and expensive to buy, My sixth is Crocodolite, striped like the big cat's eye. Seventh is two words, a man-made fake of April's stone, Eighth is very dark and found at Lightning Ridge alone. Now take from each gem, one letter in its turn, And you will find the stuff for which even the god's yearn.
4.A traveler starts a journey. For the first week he goes east. The second he goes in all directions. The third he flies up into the sky. In the fourth he comes back down. Who is the traveler?
5.Simon Simpleton was born in London, England. His mother was Welsh and his father Scottish. When Simon was eight his mother died. When Simon was ten his father married an Irish women and suddenly Simon had an Irish sister. When Simon was twenty four he graduated as a lawyer and took a job in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is now sixty six. Why can he not be buried on the banks of Loch Lomond in his favourite village of Luss, in Bonnie Scotland?

So they were those riddles.You have to answer them in comments.If you got 3 of them correct you would be in the lucky draw.I have enabled comment moderation so the correct answers can't be leaked.I request Danzy,Manali Shah and Asit Dhal not to answer the riddles but surely comment that did they liked it or not.I hope more and more people answer these riddles.
Keep visiting my blog for more of this contest.
