The Daily Teaser — 12-1-2015

You’ve probably been reading me for long enough to know — or have worked out — one thing.

I hate getting up late!

No, really!


Frankly, today, I’m  an hour later than normal.

Mind you … ?

Mind you, I actually got to bed at about 1·30: after finishing work.

I think I can let myself off … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

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

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

Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video … 

Q1) 12th January, 1971, saw the debut of All In The Family.   Which UK show was it based on?

“Ali always said I would be nothing without him, but who would he have been without me?”
‘Smokin’’ Joe Frazier, January 12, 1944 – November 7, 2011.
And this tune … 

Have a good day.
