Well I know 1 or 2 @Mi-Amigo 

Old haunt "Shaldon"

sometimes watch re-run of Shrek so pretty obvious hopefully

Beatles ~ like them, but detail ~ no

American History ~ not too bad there

Frankenstein ~ no way 

100 Iron figures ~ all can be said from me is what a waste of time and a blot on the landscape.

PM will be coming in at lunch time today ~ as will be over-worked Tuesday.
