Some off-world ones this Monday, @Mi-Amigo - need to expand my horizons a little, I think.

None of the questions taken from my quiz books were rated "difficult" but a couple of questions which I came up with over the weekend are not easy and - yes do need thinking about.

Today I finish a little earlier than usual :  I have looked through the questions.

Play station stuff not my thing.

Planets I like but don't know everything so not much use if I don't know everything😀

Movie 1 Audrey and I do like her. She is so elegant and I do remember seeing this film ages ago on TV.  I think this maybe the one  because it is iconic. Anyway as it is with me it will have to be this.

I think I do know the Gallery but new Galleries are difficult as I do not make a note of these in my mind except the Tate in Cornwall and the Tate is really notable, not a prat opening a gallery because has spare cash 😎  did I say prat - "in my opinion"

Movie 2   Never heard of it, of course 🙄

Cards are difficult because I find them utterly boring except Cluedo 🙄

Good variety of questions @Mi-Amigo 

Thank you for the Quiz and I am sending in my answers shortly by PM
