Saturday Quiz – Technical Body Parts – The Answers

Well Readers, I thought this was a well-tricky quiz but you still did amazingly well – Fran and Bobby Freelove and Christine Burns got a full house with 15/15, and Sylvie got 13/15 so well done to all of you! Tomorrow’s quiz will be a little more ‘user-friendly’ shall we say…..

    Great idea for a quiz and I’m sorry I didn’t enter (not that I would have got many). It’s been a busy few weeks, but we’re now back home and isolating, so I hope to at least have a go next week. 😊
