Welcome to the new 'normal'!
With most of the city's schools closed, it's important that all of us, both young and old, keep our grey matter active during these uncertain times.
With the weans at home, I suspect a few Glasgow parents are about to discover that the teachers were never the problem!
Therefore, I've resurrected the Glasgow ‘Heid Scratcher’ Quiz, that I ran a couple of years ago.
No cheating, no comparing notes, and, I'm afraid, no prizes for the winner; only the satisfaction of knowing you've got almost as much nonsense and trivia stored in your napper as me.
I'll post the answers tomorrow.
