I accidentally just clicked somewhere i didn't mean to...

And it had quite a retro feel to it now... but made me wonder why it was still there.

Anyone else often dip into the 'Euro 2016' tab up above to relive the glory?

Sean Lock
at 12:20 30 Nov 2016

Ipswich Regent on Wednesday 8th March (the next day after we thrash Wolves at home, possibly).
Would anyone be interested in buying 2x tickets? They're good seats - pretty central in Row C, seats 15 and 16 for £25.50 each.

I booked them without checking and not realising that it is 'Another chance to see 'Sean Lock - Keep it Light', which, whilst it was good, it is likely that essentially it would be the same show we'd seen him do at Cambridge Corn Exchange back in April this year, apart from a few minor variations maybe.

If anyone is interested, pm me and we can sort it out.

Cheers.

Obviously, HarryfromBath is still to do his preview stuff for this weekend, but I wondered if he could include a new section, just keeping it updated week to week as to who the latest boo boy is. As I understand it, recently it was Knudsen, and then it was Douglas, but has that hat now changed to Skuse?
I don't want the embarrassment of getting it wrong...

Quiz questions
at 11:04 21 Nov 2016

Following last week's quiz, a few wanted the questions, to have a go themselves. They're up on the sticky thread, but I've been asked if I had put the answers up at all. Before I do that, did anyone want to have a go at them (I know Factual said he was confident of 29 of the answers, but hasn't posted them up at all to back that claim up), otherwise I'll pop back on in a bit and post them up as asked.

Children In Need Quiz at The Dove Street Inn - Thank You!
at 13:51 19 Nov 2016

Just an update for those that came along on Thursday evening - thank you on behalf of KJ for your support, taking part and contributing to her raising a total of £760.23 for Children in Need (which includes a cake sale that she did at work yesterday too, but Thursday's quiz night with the team contributions, raffle and the auction as well, accounted for over £500 of that total), so a big thank you.

For those that wanted to know what the questions were, there were 4 straight question rounds as below, as well as a music round of 25 songs, to name both song and artist (point for each) as well as a picture round of film posters to identify.

8 IN A STANDARD PACK OF PLAYING CARDS HOW MANY JACKS’ EYES CAN BE SEEN?

8 WHO GETS ADOPTED BY OLIVER WARBUCKS?
9 ON WHICH TV PROGRAMME WOULD YOU HEAR “ITS GOOD BUT ITS NOT RIGHT”?
10 WHAT PRODUCT WAS ADVERTISED IN THE FIRST TV COMMERCIAL?

I have the answers for the above too, so if anyone wants to have a go, feel free to do so, and I'll give the answers later.

If you also wanted to enter in to the raising money aspect of it, here's a link to donate to Children in Need directly, although that wouldn't add to KJ's raised total, but I'm sure she won't mind that!
