Sage if u go back and count u will see that I haven't posted too many answers or q's:
1. I have answered and posted 2 for the 7th Sep(a's to 21 and 28; q's 30 and 31)

2. Previous entry was posted with a time stamp of "posted 09-07-2000 12:08 AM" , but as the FT clock is out by 10 mins, that makes it 11:58 Pm 09-06-2000, which is my quota for 6th Sep (a's to S4 and 122..new q's 25 and 216)
3. The entries previous to taht were both posted on the 5th sep and are my 2 q's and a's for the 5th Sep (a's to S1 and 130, new q's 14 and 17)..

I'm not sure how I could of trangressed the limits given that as I have stated on earlier posts the Fun Trivia clock is out by 10 minutes, making it 2 q's and 2 a's per day....no chance of having the clock amended?..it seems to be causing me grief having to go back and review etc...I'm pretty sure that my entries should stand Sage, hope so anyway..

These two champions also have two common sires, one on the sire-line of both horses, and one on the dam-line of both horses. What are the names of these two sires?

SAGEBRUSH QUESTIONS


To help those under 50 points of second place leader, these people will score double for these and it won't count against their daily limit. Although it won't count as your daily, you can answer only one of these bonus questions per day. This offer is good until they get within range or The Blowout / Catch-up Round (last 5 week days of the month/game).

All others may answer, but for 20 points and it will count as your daily.

Name the artist for these songs:


S 2. Blue Angel
S 5. For what it's worth
S 7. I don't wanna cry
S 9. Mr. Blue
S10. Rockin' to the rythm of the blues


Good Luck !

New Q..#42..

Q42 The Dismissal of the Whitlam Government, a government elected by the people, by the then Govenor General, Sir John Kerr, an unelected, Representative of Her Majesty, The Queen of England on 11/11/75 is still a hotly debated subject in Australian political circles. The events of that day and those leading up to it are subject to much scrutiny, and although the legallity of Kerr's unprescedented move are much debated, the fact that a number of long standing political and parlimentary "conventions" were broken is not disputed.

Amongst these conventions, was the old standing tradition of filling a Senate position that had become vacant due to the untimley Death of a sitting member, with a member nominated by the party whose member had passed away. The official convention was that the Premier from the state whose seat was vacant, actually was the person responsible for nominating the replacement member. The long standing tradition if the Premier was from a Party other then that whose member had died, was that they nominated the member chosen by their opposition party.

This very situation arose in 1975 in Queensland when a Queensland labour senator passed away. Rather then follow precedent and allow the Labour Party to appoint a replacement, the then Queensland Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Peterson elected a different replacement. Who did he send and who had the Labour Party nominated to the Premier?

Q43. The race record time for the Kentucky Derby is held by Secretariat. Which horse has the next best time?

Q44. I was born on 14-Jan-1946, the second of three children. My father was a lorry driver. We lived at 163 Longmead Drive, Edwards Estate near Nottingham. I attended Burford Infants School, Whitemoor Junior, and High Pavement schools. My mother died of cancer in 1963, my last year at high school. Next year I failed my admission test to enter Leeds University. Having finally gained admission I started Uni in Sept-1965, and I boarded with Mr and Mrs Copley at 164 Wetherby Road near Wellington Hill, outside Leeds. My wife married her first and only boyfriend on 05-Nov-1966. After graduating, my first job was at Todmorden where the River Calder, which runs through the middle of the town, was once the border between Lancashire and Yorkshire, and gave the town a split personality. Today the town is administratively in Yorkshire, but the postal district is Lancashire, which is where their cricket team play. My wife and I have three childfren. I am now a guest at Her Majesty's pleasure. Who am I?
