Thank you @TallTrees and @Cleoriff for your comments on today`s questions.

There is quite a mixed bag of categories and questions today, with some which may appeal to some of the quizzers and others which don`t - which I think adds to the fun of WRQ and can make WRQ a bit of a challenge.

I look forward to pm from each of you, and from everyone else who will be taking part, later.

Good luck.

Hi @Mi-Amigo
I prefer the questions mixed too I don't mind if I don't know them, it something different to learn.
Depending on the question.. I often do some extra research @Cleoriff gave some extra knowledge on the Finland question.
Bye for now TallTrees
