You have possibly noticed that I haven't posted this for a while. At one time there were several of us from another site taking part in this online quiz, now it's generally just three of us and while Sharlene was away, I didn't bother taking part.

If you are interested in joining in the daily quiz, then go here and register, then bookmark the site and take part each day. The scores are totalled each day and there is a winner each month. :)

I look forward to seeing you there.

Incidentally, although the subject is the same for each player, the questions usually aren't.

I should point out that you get penalized if you take too long. And if you really take too long your score doesn't get counted - so NO Googling. :naughty:
