Neither had I when I Googled it last night. Think it's time for a DING to Google for coming up with Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream.

 

Google now asks which actor links The Princess Bride and House of Cards?

 

It's a ding to you (or Google if you rather), and I guess there's nothing wrong with using Google - you either know 'em or you don't! Sorry if it was a bit hard for some of you..

 

And for those who haven't heard of them :unsure: remember Streethawk? Near Dark? Risky Business? Thief? They did the soundtracks :) Ah, go get some and listen :ph34r:

I'd googled it too: I've heard some Tangerine Dream, but hadn't heard of Edgar Froese.

 

Interestingly of our guesses, two met Dali: there's photos of Eno having a meal with him, and Wakeman notoriously threw him out of a gig for disrupting it! No connection with Jarre that I can find.

 

The new one is much easier: Robin Wright was in both I believe.

Cheers Kidder,

 

OK,

 

In 1944 Helen Duncan was the last case of a woman being tried and convicted in the U.K. for what crime?

 

Pretty sure she's the woman imprisoned for witchcraft after she supposedly gave out details of a naval ship sinking at a public seance in Portsmouth which had been kept secret by the War Dept.

 

A scary Halloween Diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing to Marty!!

Two of the London livery companies - I think one of the two was the Mercers. They got to do something in order of precedence (date of foundation?) but two were equal sixth, so one year one was sixth and the other seventh, and the next they swapped over.

 

Right idea - but for the ding which 2 worshipful companies - not the Mercers I am afraid.

:) I knew I'd come across this recently but couldn't figure out where - it was while researching for your Dad's "Other Place"! But I had to google to come up with the right two.

I could rename it "Little Brother's Fave Place" as he is now the Master of the Company :)
