    im not playing this week because i know the answers.
    when i can think of something profound i will update this.

    As you can see we are lucky to have a new quiz setter this week. Well done Denise a great selection of questions. I’m off for a lie down in a dark room for a think 😁


      Thanks to Denise for this music quiz. I think I have 12 so far and during the day some others may come to mind.
      I’m going to do this even if it kills me!


        Thanks Denise, giving Phil a rest? 16 I think 🤔
        Janette x


          He's doing training. Not sure what as 🐒😂🤣😃

              think i might have got 5! Never been any gppd at many quizzes, and certainly not music!
              Mum died with MND in 1979 – My sister and I have a wonky gene, probably inherited from mum. Reckon my MND started sometime in 2018.


                I'm useless at most but like to get my brain working. Well I try to get it working 😊 so I'm in a position of power asking the questions. Anyone else like a go just get in touch with Phil.

                when i can think of something profound i will update this.


                  Hey up they look hard to me...........ill leave it to Albert!
                  Husband Albert diagnosed PMA Feb 21


                    15 we think including one or two guesses for us this week. Some hard ones in there this time!
                    Our working hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am until 5pm


                      I've had guesses at them all too but I think around 17 or 18. Thank you for organising the quiz this week, Denise x


                        Hey Denise that’s totally unfair. You have turned from a poacher to a gamekeeper. I have got 6.

                        And I’m sure you have the wrong first word for question 13. Unlucky for some.



                          Assuming I have the correct answers I’m tied with Janette on 16. I’ve spent all day repeating the lyrics of 1,4,5 and 12 and I think I got all but 1.
                          I’m going to do this even if it kills me!


                            Well done everyone. Have to say it was scary putting it altogether. I'm not as organised as I thought and my connection keeps dropping out. 😊
                            when i can think of something profound i will update this.


                              Some tough one’s in there. I have had a go at 17. Q11 is driving mad.
