Only five out of seven I'm afraid. I did not use the help however. Would it have helped? I'll check it now.

Well yes I see they would have.

I am just as bad at the quizzes over here... But I did know the dessert ;-)

I am wondering if James did his back in taking the shortcut into your apartment again!!

I think the office to which you are referring has something to do with the water department and the delivery system?

My guess for the municipal office is the post office. How close did I get?

Hi, jmb. You did well! Cherrypie, I don't think he's done it since! Well done, Leslie. Yes, the Water Office! Close, flutterby, but the Water Office is no 1 hate! I think that's quite good, Jams.
