After a day’s delay, here are the answers to the questions posed in Saturday’s post: Time waits for no man. Before I get to that, I’d like to tell you about two questions we managed to get right on the night.
Firstly, one I was quite proud of. “What was the name of the baby in the film ‘Three men and a baby‘?” From some deep, deep hidden memory of watching the film in school (presumably in religion class) I plucked an answer.
