I got a very miserable 15. I thought I'd done much better.

20 for me which is not too bad. Quite a tough one this month I thought.

And congratulations to Daisy on being 2017's overall winner. :D

Gosh, I forgot about the quiz — just done it now. I got 20.

The questions really do get repeated after a while, though — I'm recognising more and more of them as ones I've seen before, whether or not I know the correct answer. Would there be any way of loading some new questions into the quiz software some time, just to add to the variety? :D

Speaking for myself, I'm afraid I wouldn't have time to do that at the moment, Courtenay.

I decided not to take part this year as I do recognise some repeated questions - mind you, I've learnt a lot from them too!

Repeated questions don't seem to sink in with me...I still only got 23 this month! My trouble is that if I remember repeated questions, I don't remember the repeated answers! :lol: Sometimes I even think 'ah - I answered so-and-so before - must have been wrong!' and then I pick the wrong answer! :-D
