Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 10-2-2017

Ohhh, but that’s better … 

Yep: yesterday, saw me have — wait for it — a day off!

OK, I didn’t do much more than have a stroll, do some writing, and catch some TV.

The one question I do have?

Is why on Earth — this morning — do I have I Got It From Agnes ear worming it’s way through my head?

Blowed if I know.

All I can do is pass it on!


~≈†≈~

But let’s move on, shall we?

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

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

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video … 

Q1) Glenn Miller was awarded the world’s first Gold record, on 10th February, 1942.   For selling how many copies: one hundred thousand, on million or ten million?
Q2) Towards the end of the Catalonia Offensive, and during the Spanish Civil War, 10th February, 1939, saw Franco’s Nationalists close the border with which country: France, Germany or Portugal?

Robert Wagner, born February 10, 1930.
And this tune … 


Have a good day … 



*        I don’t think he will, Debbi: I don’t think he’s got the legs!   (Actually, the forest’s in Sherwood: and I think the club’s logo is based, very specifically, on this tree.)

Sorry I'm late. It's been a weird day and seemed to have done everything but out of sync. Perhaps it was she snow.
