    The only one I’m sure of is 4 (since 5 is answered above), BA, where the Mothers of PdM gather.

    I hate to admit knowing the answer to 1, but I think it was the really cruddy “Tom & Jerry”, although who was supposed to be the mouse I can’t recall. I think it was on the original S&G album cover or somewhere like that.

    2 & 3, I would have to look up, and cheating, I looked up 3 but won’t add it in case someone does know. I always thought of it as just an Irishism. To guess 3, someone like Betty Friedmann ?


  5. Paul Tremewan says:

    Tom and Jerry ( saw them on Sat); Jenny Shipley; Philip Temple ( wrote it when he was 19); Buenos Aires; and Lake Hauroko.
    Boom Boom!

    re Q5 I see on Wikipedia that it is Lake Hauroko – can anyone tell me where it is please.

    In Hawkes Bay there is a small lake at Te Pohue on the Napier Taupo Road (SH5), just across the road from the pub. When I was a youngster in the 1960’s I recall being told that no one knew how deep it was as various attempts to find the bottom had been unsuccessful.

    I am not sure if that still holds true or if it was ever true for that matter. But if it is still true it may compete with Lake Hauroko.
