JIMMY'S NOTES

MONTANA! Yes I missed that in the trivia last week and have no idea how (literally copy and pasted the answers from the US States wiki?) #spewing. Thank you for everyone that (embarrassingly) corrected me.

Threw in some corkers this week to make up for it.

Have a cracking weekend, you deserve it!

All the best
Jimmy
