4 out of 10 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎Shameful ☺️☺️☺️☺️

Funny tho, re number nine! Only this morning, I joked I’m having Heinz Tomsto Soup for Christmas dinner if this freight crisis continues 🙃😁😁😁, but I honestly added, I’d be happy with that, as right now it’s a blessing to have a lovely safe sanctuary, with plenty of provisions, even if not festive foods, with so many being made homeless, using food banks, and worse of course. 

Fab quiz Marc 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍👍👍👍

4 out of 10.  Nice quiz @Marc  👍

Maybe the quiz is too tough?! :sweat_smile:

7. In which year was the first Christmas card sent? - No idea, but I’d like to have a stern word with the numpty who started it.

Get to the back of the queue for that one @Gwyndy :laughing:

It’ll be more like that scene from ‘Airplane’ where there’s a queue of people lined up to calm down a panicking passenger, each carrying their own calming ‘instrument’ of choice - baseball bat, boxing gloves, spanner….
