In other mysteries, the Alan Erwin quiz has still not been killed off. Work that one out.

First of all, last week’s answer – Alan Erwin. So well done again if you got that one.

This week’s question is:

Which Harrier has left their straighteners on since June 1983?

Answers on a postcard to the usual address.

So this week’s tune is for all you lovers out there. So, on Tuesday evening, cuddle up close to your loved one (or someone else’s if that way inclined) and sing this in their ear. Happy Valentine’s Day Harriers.

Until next week, behave.
