That's because I came close to forgetting a week or so ago @Mi-Amigo 

Beautiful picture of Whistlejacket.  Had that framed picture here for a long time, then my sister asked for it.

As she had done so much for me over the years I let her have it.

Couldn't find a gif of Whistlejacket though Lol

To our regular quizzers 

@Cleoriff  @MI5  @RafaC  @pgn  @lewys-gp  @BobM @gmarkj @TallTrees   @Martin-O2  @jonsie 

and anyone who wishes to have a go at this quiz,

I`m sorry there is an error in Question 1 which should read

 

Q1 GEOGRAPHY 1 What is the name of the peninsula in Canada, with Hudson Bay to the west, Hudson Strait

                                to the north, and Gulf of St Lawrence to the south-east ?

not Gulf of St Lawrence to the south-west.

 

If anyone who has already sent a pm with their answers wishes to change the answer to this question, I`ll accept it as the error is my fault. I hope that those who have not yet sent their answers see this notification.

 

Sorry. I hope this doesn`t spoil the quiz.
