I hope all is well with Corky. I am a little uneasy at the way he stopped answering. There are a few there that I know he would know, and it is not like him not to put anything, even something daft for an answer.
I was so uneasy I checked and found that this was the last post he has put on tonight, even though he seems to be still logged in.

WW, I thought it rather strange too.

It could be something as simple as he didn't realise the time,

I'll keep my eye on the quiz thread.

Thanks RMJ. I might just be daft, but It was such a strong feeling of unease when I read the thread. He is probably supping slutch at this very minute, and will have a good chuckle at me when he gets back.

I'm touched. Embarassed


When I do the quiz, I just click the quote icon on the OP, thus I don't accidentally read anyone else's replies. So tonight, when I needed to dash, I just clicked 'send', then on my return, started with the OP again.


I suppose it all stems from the school thing where everyone lifts their elbow up to shield their exam papers from prying eyes.
