Really pleased you managed to get back on here @Mi-Amigo after your disaster over the weekend.

Just checking if any of those questions are an April Fools joke? 😂

Thanks @Cleoriff 

Real disaster over the weekend - especially as I couldn`t play my fav game Word Unscramble by @pgn 

And "no" there are no questions which are April Fools....

Good luck
