Done it once, I think, on the Friday Night Quiz, and I think a couple of times on Admins quiz, but Admin often does quizzes without those subjects anyway, so, although I was pleased to do it, I wouldn't want any subjects dropped on the Friday Quiz. Those subjects are my weak spots, but others are brilliant at them. Very Happy
