A good one. I got 15/20, losing points on a guess and a half.

Oh dear - a very disappointing 9/20
Sometimes you know, and sometimes you learn how much more there is to know.

A fair quiz though

Oh my gosh!! 20/20, my two guesses came in this time. I'm booking a mini-vacation to the nearest casino hotel (with golf course).

Fun, thanks for posting Joe,
