Just to say folks that my laptop is cream crackered, I've ordered a new one but it may

be a while before it gets delivered as it is being 'made to order' in China by Dell.

I'm using our big desktop, which I will be able to mark any quiz posts up to 10-30 tonight.

I usually take my lappy to bed and I can mark latecomers, so obviously I can't do that tonight.

I will mark any late posts tomorrow morning, providing I can stay awake after tonight';s Vino Collapso LOL!!!!!! Embarassed Laughing
