Dear Readers, the redoubtable Fran and Bobby Freelove were the only players this week, but they got 15 out of 15, so congratulations and well done! As you might have seen from my post on Friday, I am now in Canada, so tomorrow I’m going to run one of my old quizzes, mainly because last time around nobody got it perfectly right :-). Let’s see how we get on this time….
