Hi there @Mi-Amigo 

Oh!  now you know me and the hit singles, Footy FGS 😭

After the first question it was pretty much a "downhill Slalom"

no worries I will test myself on these and let you have the

answers (such as they will be) in due course i.e. after 12noon 

as specified.

The 2000th question is fabulous (but not for me) 😃

A lot of "passes" for me on this one. Great 2000th question, although I can only remember one song title by Westlife, hope it's the correct one 🤣

 

I know only one group who have recorded "Woodstock" but they're definitely not a "one hit wonder" band so Q8 is a miss for me 😑

Hi @LukasB 

Really great to hear from you 😘  Hope you are doing well? Really miss you.

Your name lives on though. If @gmarkj doesn't know an answer to a question he puts your (or @TheresaV's name instead) 😂😂
