Thanks for taking the time of preparing the quiz again and being generous offering the prizes. It became for me quite a classic moment on Christmas holidays.
For sure I'll give it a try.

I was out of town the last 3 days and a very long weekend before.
I had maybe Wed and Thur I could have worked on it but didn't really have time.
I am very sorry I didn't get to participate this year but I had a good time doing what I was doing :-)

3 - Spabreda
1 - Quaziright
2 - Bart
7 - Afrasi

After being back home for a couple weeks and picking up Andyg’s letter from my friend, I want to give my sincere thanks for the wonderful quizz he has held annually and for the gifts/prizes he has sent along.

I’m very pleased indeed to have a sample of the new pound coin as Well as the Isaac newton and peter the rabbit 50p!
