  1. Wasn't it a fund raiser for the Hillsborough disaster fund, I think they called themselves "The Kop" or something similar. I now know the real names of Mrs Pidgeon & Junior but I googled it so I'll keep it to myself ;)


    It was for the Bradford Football disaster.



    It was by "The Crowd", but Ringo Starr wasn't on it!!


    Ah. my source says he was, (non-internet source so can't link). Oh, and it is The Crowd. (1pt)


    However, no-one is likely to overtake Martybartfast so I'll Ding him.


    And the name of the mother and son were Hilda and Rob Woodward.

  2. Was the song "You'll Never Walk Again Alone"? I'm sure Gerry Marsden did it as a charity record, so Ringo and Zak may have been on it as Scousers.


    Yes, that's the one. (1pt)


    Just the name of the group and possibly the name of the mum/son combo from Q3. If no-one has the answers by mid-day tomorrow I'll give the answers and the points will be as they are now.

  3. Oi it was me that said Ringo Starr :D


    Yes, it was. Have 1pt. I plead stupidity due to reading the logs on the reply page which are in reverse order! :D


    His name's Zak Starkey (I think)


    Correct Keehotee. Have 1pt


    I think Marty is in an unassailable lead (I should start working on your next question), but let's be neat and tidy. What was the song and "group". You've got as far as it being a collective charity record and there weren't that many that reached number 1! Of course, if anyone does know the mum and son in Lieutenant Pigeon....

  4. I've got a sneaking feeling that on Wizard's "I Wish It Could Be Chrismas Every Day" they used a choir from Roy Woods kids school so I'll guess that his son was one of them but no idea of his name.


    No, this father and son will be known by name.


    Kids are playing the Simpsons game ATM so I'll guess at Homer and Bart on "Do the Bart-man"?


    Fraid not. They are real people.

  5. Thanks.


    Three part question.


    1) (Easy) Who were the first father and daughter to get to number 1 in the UK charts duetting on the same record. (1 point in total for both their names plus 1 point for the song title.) [Total - 2 points]


    2) (Medium) Who were the first father and son to reach number 1 in the UK charts singing on the same record. (Names - 1 point each, the title of the song - 1 point, and the group within which they were appearing - 1 point. [Total 4 points]


    3) (Hard) Who were the first mother and son to reach number 1 in the UK charts. ( I would like their names - 2 point each, but, if it proves too difficult without googling, and make sure you don't!, I'll just take the group name - 2 point and the title of the song - 1 point.) [Total 7 points]


    Ding to the person who gets the most points!

  6. It is the first sunday, after the first Paschal full moon after the 21st March.


    The church has a list of dates for which full moons are given, even though they don't correspond entirely with what you see in the sky so that everyone throughout the world has a "full moon" at the same time. The church has used 21st March as the Spring Equinox since 325a.d. a date chosen by the Council of Nicaea.

  7. What are the rules on googling answers etc? Not played along with this thread before but the questions are quite interesting and although I didn't know this one, I found the answer very quickly with a quick search....


    Heresy! Heresy! :D


    There is pretty much only one rule of this thread, and that is you can't google the answer. And for the pedants out there I suspect all search engines are included.


    There have been questions where someone has asked a friend who would know the answer and that appears allowable. (I don't think the idea is that they know because they googled it! :D )


    Questions are meant to be of "pub quiz" level.


    Well, I do apologise for that, don't want to be holding people up, the only other one I posted was much too easy, so I am clearly having trouble with the standard.


    I shouldn't worry, half the stuff that comes up on here isn't pub quiz standard. If it's any consolation I liked the question and would be interested in knowing the answers. If you don't want to post them I shall go off and google them.

  9. WHITE HORSE : This has been bugging me for days because I'm sure I know about it. From the murky depths of what is laughingly referred to as my mind comes an idea. Is it "named" after the horse that became famous in an early FA Cup final involved in on-pitch crowd control? Don't have any othr details because I know more about white horses than I do about football which obviously ain't much! :drama:


    Of course, I might well be completely wrong, as usual. :drama:

  10. I'm afraid I'm too "old school" as well. Unless you've signed the log you ain't found it. There are some ingenious hides out there where you might well see the cache but the skill can be in how you retrieve it.


    Yes, these people who log fields as a find are cheating themselves but they do cheat other too. They can make new cachers feel "inadequate" because they aren't able to log at the rate they do. And would you allow such leeway in other fields?


    I, by pure chance, happened to have walked past Twickenham Rugby ground when The Rolling Stones were playing. Who would like to buy me a drink whilst I tell you about the time I saw The Stones in concert? :)

  11. Thanks for your replies. The W000 problem is interesting as all mine would start with that.


    However, and wouldn't you just know it would happen, I downloaded my e-mails tonight, and having done nothing, I get my first notification for 3 months! ;):)


    Hope all the rest of you with the same problem are getting the same result.
