    I'm sorry you feel hard done to but I'm no mastermind and am just as likely to get things wrong as anyone.Yes a Dugong is called a sea cow along with its cousin, the Manatee.

    When I have been incorrect before and it's been glibly pointed out to me, I have adjusted scoring. I won't be adjusting these scores because LMM and Garf should have got extra for being such a good double act but I will attempt to get all the Manatees and Dugongs in a row for next week.

    i don't mind missing out to technology, answers vanishing into the ether;

    but losing out to answers that have two or more possibilities is another thing altogether, they should have shared points

    Just remember though for future reference, my ipad refreshes in a second or so, which means I can see when answers are edited, a point I did make a few weeks ago but I don;'t think you took part that week so probably missed the memo !

    Morning Pete
    We all like to win but as LMM says as enjoyable as the quiz is it's just a few friends on a cruise forum having a laugh for a couple of hours.

    Just dial back the competitiveness a bit and enjoy the banter.

    See you next friday hopefully.

    Thank you very much Mrs M for a great quiz, and thank you all the others who play along and make it an entertaining evening.
    if anybody has strong feelings about my participation then i'll gladly refrain from playing, just private message me and i'll treat it with the greatest respect and not play but just watch from the sidelines
    Your choice...............

    Pete? You really are taking the shine off this with your nit-picking! It's only a FRIENDLY quiz - not the bl@@dy Olympics.

    For a clever man you really don't see it.
