Well people it's official Mr. Wayne Martin is on page 2 on the leaderboard.  There for awhile he was missing because of business and a move.  However when he came back he came back with a vengence and hasn't slowed down one bit.  
So if you get a moment please go by and offer him a job well done.  Posting his trivia questions humble most of us and I would love to know where he gets them.  
Just go visit his blogs and you'll see what I'm talking about.
CONGRATULATIONS Mr. Martin.
