    Quiz Week 18

    Before I kick off with this weeks 20 I would like to say everyone is welcome to join in. When we started this weekly quiz it was with the intention of having a bit of fun for everyone be that suffers, Carers or both working together. The scores are what they are and don’t really matter unless you are called Richard and Denise 🤣. In fact you don’t need to post your score, especially if you get a full house 🤣 I pretty much get the lowest score every week but hey ho.

    5. What was the name of the world’s first adhesive postage stamp

    10. By what system is a letter sent if labelled “ Pat avionics”

    11. What does SMS stand for in relation to texting

    12. Who invented the telephone

    13. What does “fax” stand for
