The Daily Teaser — 25-6-2014: 10, Rillington Place

Right: it’s Induction Day … !


You’ve possibly worked out I’m job-hunting, haven’t you … ?

Well, yes: I am.

And, as part of this, my local job centre insist I have to do various things.

Currently, I’m having to attend the Job Centre, daily: and use their facilities, to look for work.

Today, though … ?

Today, I have to attend the Induction Day for a Fresh Start Course: something I’ve mentioned before.

Quite what it’s for … ?

I really don’t know.

I’ll let you know, when I do.

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi putting in her answers: and bagging six out of ten.

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

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

Q10) Finally … the Grand Lodge, and the group it represents, claim to be descended from which workers … ?
A10) Stonemasons.
I’ll leave you with this tune about a juicy murder: which gave me hours of fun, if you read yesterday’s Teaser intro … 

It’s basically a Cajun version of a folk Ledbelly made famous … 

And that Nirvana updated … 

Couldn’t imagine three more different tunes, could you … ?

At any rate, I’ll also leave you with this thought …
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”
Have a good day.

*        Interesting’s the word, Debbi: made for some interesting tunes, too!   Although, if you push it too far, you end up with Dread Zeppelin …   (Oh, sorry about the score, by the way, the subject’s a tricky one, isn’t it … ?)
