Riddles, Riddles, Riddles….

Riddles, Riddles, Riddles….


#1… I am taken from mine, and shut up in a wooden case, from which I am never released, and yet I am used by almost everybody.  What am I?

#2… I am the beginning o the end, and the end of time and space. I am essential to creation, and I surround every place. What am I?

#3… There are 3 stoves. A glass stove, a brick stove, and a wood stove. You only have one match. Which do you light up first?

#4… Two fathers and two sons went duck hunting. Each shot a duck but they shot only three ducks in all. How come?

#5… What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

(answer in comments below and I will return with answers soon)
