    Two entries. Sorry guys, I’ll post the answers shortly. The interest just isn’t there for the quizzes anymore.

    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    As there were only two entries, I considered tossing a coin to decide the winner of the bragging rights, but I did eventually count up the scores and the person with the least incorrect answers was...

    Suzi


    (however Mike won the coin toss, lol)
