Unfortunately I’ve been unable to publish the quizzes every week over the last few weeks due to a couple of gremlins in my pc, so my apologies for that and now I’ve got my pc back from the menders, I’ll be up and running again next week, sorry if you’ve been relying on it but you know what computers are like, they have a mind of their own at times.

Thanks for being patient.
