Apologies folks - I missed that I'd got that last one right as it was lost in the banter! :lol: :lol:

Moving on...

Telly trivia - what was the first name of Hudson, the butler in Uptairs Downstairs (as played by Gordon Jackson)?

Ok, this question was a bit tongue in cheek. Just as I had heard the previous answer on the Chase; I was hoping someone would have heard the answer on the Open, which was on BBC2 last Friday :D Obviously not. Peter Allis said the tip travels at 200 MPH.

Here is a new question.

How many black keys are there on a standard piano?

Missed this question as I was too busy playing the slots in Las Vegas.
Our daughter Sarah took piano lessons from age 6 until she left for university
so I know there's 88 keys 36 of them are black.

That's the one Fil. Personally I would have given both John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara Oscars for the Quiet Man
but that is only my opinion :)
