Evening WW.

A really super dooper score of 28 correct.

You even got the car question.

The 'World without Love' answer was Peter and Gordon, because they had the chart hit with it.

A Lennon McCartney song if memory serves.

Anyroad, very well done.

Thank you WW, another brilliant round from you.

Yes, we've had the most horrendous, frustrating maddening time trying to get my new laptop to log on.

We think it was because it was from factory stock as opposed to 'special build', and the software was maybe many

updates behind.

Thankfully it sorted itself out and we are OK now.
