Thank you Gassey.

I do the quiz at 10 o'clock with Mrs RMJ ( asking the questions verbally), hence the time gap.

A really good bit of quizzing mon ami, with just a few lapses.

You're very good on music questions usually, but you missed 'Mr Blue Sky' by ELO
on the Q25 lyrics question, which surprised me.
