Really pleased with 8/10 as there were 3 Jr and I weren't sure about. I thinks he'll know SA birds before UK birds. Wouldn't it be great if his first word were "Little Brown Jobs- Oh No"

LBJ's for a baby has meant little time to answer these challenges...

Oh sweet inyanga 30! If I do that, I'm afraid we will have a huge increase in population, don't you think? Some lucky ladies might have triplets, and will have to be counted as 4! Good try anyway! :lol:

How does one reply to these quizzes now? The board layout's changed and I've no idea how to send a pm to the quiz-setter. Please advise - I'm running Windows 7 on a laptop.
