Being long in the tooth and having a rather weirdly selective memory I managed to get the golf question - much to my own surprise. The statistics question was just stupid but I got that right too.

Sometimes I amaze myself!

Here is the Quiz Link again.

It must be catching. The one time it would have been possible to get into the top 10 with 9/10 and my signal was so slow, I had to stop and reload twice. It's a conspiracy I tell you.

May I recommend Do Not Pass Go by Tim Moore, a very entertaining romp round the British Monopoly board, but with a spot of history of the game thrown in?

By some fluke of nature I seem to be in fifth place, which is much further north than I've been for ages. [Yipee]
