The Daily Teaser — 4-11-2014

Hang on, what … ?

What … ?

I’m just listening to Radio 4: my usual early morning listening.

The Today programme’s political coverage is usually second to none: to the point where your political career can get a kick-start — or kicking — only after appearing on the show.

It’s daily racing tips are usually well spoken of, too.

It’s even mentioned one horse that did well, yesterday: called Who Shoot Thebarman.

Hmmm … 

Interesting name.

Although, as an ex-barman, myself … ?   I don’t know if I can completely approve … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video

I’ll leave you with this tune … 

And this thought …
“People from all walks of life and all over the world look at me and know my humble beginnings and know that everything I’ve done has been through hard work. People respect me as a marketer and brand builder.”

Sean Puff Daddy Combs, 4th November, 1969.
Have a good day.
