    A quick quiz for you all and once again just to empty my bookshelves it will be a pot luck competition with a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books available.

    The competition will run until Sunday 4 September at a time I can be bothered to end it! Due to the slagging I have been receiving on ARRSE for being a wise and elderly gentleman, I have decided to make this extremely simple question about the Old Age Pension! :twisted:

    Entry form can be found here: Pot Luck Comp

    Is this competition only open to the PSOFs?

    The questions seem to be tailored for the more mature gent/lady.
