No secret I love the quizzes, particularly the Word Hunt Diamond. As well as being fun, it's also educational (as is the White Room Quiz). Thanks @Mi-Amigo wink


Also the laughs from  The Wednesday Laugh day by @Bambino , whilst the World Laughter Day has become something of a daily joke thread joy


Watching with great interest about how the merger with O2 and Virgin pans out.


Also and sadly, the wettest May on record for a long long time, which thankfully picked up for the Bank Holiday. sun

Thank you @Martin-O2 for the mention of the White Room Quiz and Word Hunt Diamond game, and thank you @Cleoriff pleased you enjoyed them.

I liked @LukasB `s emoji game and @TheresaV `s Word Scramble - which gives me a chance to play along, especially the Word Scramble as I love word games.


@Bambino `s Wednesday Laugh and World Laughter Day gave me something to laugh at - the latter now becoming a daily laugh of often silly but funny jokes.


On a more serious point, @Bambino `s Spoofing Warning thread gave valued info on this.


All in all, a good month on the Commnity with something for everyone thumbsup
