My first ever question!

 

How long was the HUNDRED YEARS' WAR?

 

Not 100 years obviously... noone can fight that long. :unsure:

 

The whole thing occured over 116 years though the 14th and 15th centuries,

A bit of info here (I've since looked it up).

 

The park had a lot of stinging nettles and when the "courting couples" went there to coo, they got stung and became itchy - hence ichycoo :unsure:

The Godfather ?

 

Nope. I should have pointed out that it is a US X rather than a UK X - sorry. The Godfather was an R.

Midnight Cowboy :lol: My dad told me the answer, it had Dustin Hoffman in it...

 

DING!

 

Well done, it was released in 1969 when X in the US meant 17 and above. The subsequent association with porn meant that it was regraded to R in 1971 with no cuts or changes.

 

I'll hand the baton back to CD!

The F1 fanatic currently sharing the sofa with me says it is Mattias!

 

That will be a DING!!

 

Who does he think is going to win this season?

 

Kaz says Alonso is in with a good chance!

 

Now to the next question:

 

Last year I cached in a place which took us very close to The Book of Kells ... where is it currently held?

 

The dong goes to the person who names the building and the place.
