Summary

Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat . . . A highlight for me has always been the family quiz, written by my father and his father before him, mostly to entertain the extended family after our traditional evening dinner. Since Dad died, I have taken-up the reins. Have fun (and no GooGle)
