Thanks very much all. I'll show Val all your nice Greetings when she and my daughter return from shopping (their hobby).

Putting things in perspective, the car's only a machine - it can be repaired - but I'm glad I'm insured. I took it to the Repairer's this morning for a quote, and what looks like a small dent and scratching = Big $$$$.

QUESTION 2.

This song was originally the "B" side of a well known Group's Big Hit of the latter part of the 70s . A cover of it became a Big solo Hit for someone else the following year. What was the song and who had the Hit with it? Too easy! ::

The Small faces

:coolio:CONGRATULATIONS EDNA! WELL DONE!!!:coolio:

I don't remember using it before Laurie, but I well may have. You're younger than me. :) Steve Marriott is really the only one I recognized there. When he left for Humble Pie, they re-formed as The Faces with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood.

I tried to get in here unsuccessfully for a couple of hours (at least) before I took my Grandaughter to get some Videos. I just thought I'd try again now.

Maybe NOT that easy! Sorry Brad - that was misleading! :)

THIS QUESTION FOR ENGLISH PARTICIPANTS (AND OTHER CRICKET FANS) ONLY. THE ENGLISH WILL APPRECIATE IT MORE THOUGH. (IT'S NOTHING SEXUAL). ::

Q. What do Geraint Jones (English Cricket Wicket-keeper) and Michael Jackson have in common?

:jester:

Ok. I speak English and I'm a fan of Buddy Holly and the Crickets, so here goes.

Q. What do Geraint Jones (English Cricket Wicket-keeper) and Michael Jackson have in common?

They both wear gloves for no apparent reason. :laughing:

Diggs Old Mate, you have to answer mine first. (I don't know yours anyway). P.S. I have a lot more "First Test" jokes if you'd like them.

:jester:

That bloody Brad! He's a champion Googler. For our U.S. and other non-cricketing countries, the Wicket - Keeper (read "Catcher" in baseball) is allowed to wear large gloves to assist him in his catching. A catch = Out. The poor English Wicket Keeper dropped a few in the First Test between England and Australia.

:(

Please tell us yours, Diggs ! (unless Brad can get it). :laughing:

Seriously, there's no way I'd count England out of the series. IF Pieterson hadn't dropped Michael Clarke on 21 it might have been a completely different story. I'm looking forward to the next match.

:thumbsup:

O.K. CURRENT QUESTION:

This song was originally the "B" side of a very well known Group's big hit in the latter part of the 70s. They also wrote BOTH songs. A cover of it became a Big solo Hit for someone else the following year. What was the song and who had the Hit with it?

Hey that's good. Is that it Diggs?

I feel sorry for him, really. My edest daughter used to play Softball, and her team made it to 2 Grand Finals in a row. The first year she dropped the winning/losing catch. It happened again the next year (I couldn't believe it. I thought "Why her, God?"), but that time she held the catch and they won. ::
