  5. Done.

    AG just another wee thing I noticed that questions 5 and 6 both ask for the contact email address. I've been off here for a while so dunno if that is the norm now.

    Cheers

    Well this has been running now for a few days and some interesting answers cropping up. Methinks that some people need to revisit their English history or at least read the question correctly to ascertain the correct answer from Wiki!! :hiding:

    Still a week to go so still time to get your entry in.
