  1. Damn, I can answer less than a handful of these…

    but then you know my era of music, so hopefully I still get to hang out here!


    Hope you and your crew are having a lovely time!


  2. Alan > I guess it's an era thing! I suppose if you set the questions, I'd be as lost! 🙂

    You're welcome here and thanks for the kind words about the holiday.

    Lucy > Some are harder than others. Someone (at Chams) got a full score. I guess she must be a movie buff!

    The holiday was great thank you. Lots of good family time together in a nice rustic setting with good weather. Shame to go back to work really 🙂
