Ducks & Drakes is the connection.
I'll go for 'Stone'
Very Good David!! thought that would take longer for connection, as David said, 'Ducks and Drakes', which in case anyone does not know is the game of skimming a flat stone over water!
Mick or Keith?
Go for 'MICK'.
Excellant Canambridge! ' Mick the Miller' was a famous racing greyhound and 116th. Panzer were known as the 'Greyhounds' (Windhund).
Dog Racing or Car Racing?
Go for....'Car Racing'
Was one the scene of the others horrific crash?
(Bit cryptic this one, but not impossible)
Absolutely correct David!
Am working on your latest, I can see the connection but the 11/10? beats me, 11/10=1.1,epidural is nerve numbing spinal injection but???
1.1 is something to do with www but I'm not too clever about that! This ought to be up Ossies street!
I've got the connection between Lauda and epidural but???
I have arrived at the following but haven't a clue as to what it means.....
"epidural hematoma (1.1%)
Please, someone explain the connection to me!
I did warn you that it was a bit cryptic! I don't want to hold up proceedings, so here goes.
Lauda = Louder.
In the mock rock documentary 'This is Spinal Tap' their amplifiers go up to eleven on a scale ten!
Epidural, spinal injection. 11/10 Spinal Tap.
(Forgive me :wink: ).
I shouldn't be contributing OT material, but that was nicely done!
David for that one you want locking up!!! So can we go back 'OT' now?
(on track?) so last two options were ....
11/10 and Epidural.(unfortunately there is a connection on Google with 'laude and epidural!!!)
Please some one pick one !!
11/10 (should really be 10/11)
"Left of them" or "Right of them" ?
Thanks Ossie, 10th/ 11th Hussars, Balaklava.
Go for both!
Well done -- I knew you would spot that one
Cherry Pickers was (is) the nickname of the 11th Hussars (from their tight red trousers) and Lord Cardigan was the commander of the Light Brigade
OK, Cardigan, please
John or Norma?
keep away from calvalry/Balaklava!! Major General Cardigan.......
There is also a story that the Cherry Pickers were so named as they were caught by a French Calvalry troop while in an orchard picking cherries during the Peninsular wars!!! They keep quiet about that though!
They were known as 'Cherry-Bums' from the breeches.
Major.... John PM.... wife ... Norma.
I have no idea what people are talking about so I can't choose.
I was actually thinking of JM as a typical "cardigan wearer" but your connection is better.
Why did you have to bring Edwina Curry into this?
OK, Salmonella, so the obvious question is:
Sam or Ella?
For Blasters education I'll explain the John/Norma connection, John Major was PM of UK. His wife was Norma, but the Salmonella and Vindaloo connection is..............
Vindaloo is a curry.
Edwina Curry was a member of Parliment who created a mini panic by saying eggs were full of the salmonella bug.
John Major had an affair with Edwina. Alles klar?
Sam or Ella?
Go for 'SAM'.
