Don't you dare - and don't you dare apologise! That's part of the fun. It was great to watch everyone's faces and listen to the comments. :D

I enjoyed your quiz Phil, but you've set a high target for me to aim at next time :shock:

I only won by default cos Pat wasn't there :D

Thanks for the hospitality Paul, and the delivery of my new glass needles :bounce:

Ahhhhh! Yes! But it's on a DVD, 4 sections, 3 sub sections to each section, except section 4 which is the answers. So a total of 100 questions with a possible 125 points. The best we could manage was 47%, then I was disqualified :( for being lippy to the quizmaster ......................... Had to give someone else a chance of winning

Some of the questions are fairly easy, the others are not. Plus you have to put up with the background music and sound effects. Overall, a well presented and challenging quiz.

Won't be a problem for me, Jonty ... I always aim to score only a few points anyway (I'm very good at that :D ) so I come bottom-but-one, thus avoiding having to read 'Where's My Cow' as forfeit, but I have some competition for that place ... you know who you are, guys!

Our resident geniuses ... Pat, Ian and Demdike ... can vie for the honour of beating the scores of the Tyne & Group whilst the rest of us scratch our heads in despair! :wink:

However, I - for one - am looking forward to Stan's quiz ... :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
