Steve, just want to record my thanks for the time and effort you have put into the quiz over the months. It was a great idea and a good opportunity for all those who had any interest in the forum to join in. Also a huge thank you to @cruzeroqueen1 Thanks Gill for your continued support on this, I don’t think you missed a single day.

Thank you, Alan @Fossil – and again thanks to Steve @coolonespa for creating extra interest with the daily quiz.

Q398. Early in his singing career, who was sometimes billed as “The Twisting Vocalist from Pontypridd”?
Tom Jones (was never a great fan of him)

Q399. In astronomy, which stars are the hottest e.g. blue stars, white stars or yellow stars?
Think it’s blue,( as I remember thinking at the time it would make more sense if it was ‘red hot’
and ‘blue with cold’).

Q400. Which city in Pennsylvania USA was the setting for the “Rocky” films?
Never seen them, so will guess Pittsburg.

Congratulations on making it to 400!

The only city I know of in Pennsylvania is Philadelphia as in Bruce Springsteens song, another of my favourites so will go with Philadelphia

Q395. What year was NATO set up?
Not sure, but think it was about the same time that Israel was set up, so will say 1948

Ooooooo, so close 1949 is the correct answer

You got the other two, well done.

Q396. A Bigger Splash is amongst the works of which Yorkshire born artist?
As a Yorkshire Tyke I know it is David Hockney. (But I’m not keen on his work).

Queen (but they all think they deserve the title and the waiting-on.).

Thanks for the video, Steve, I enjoyed seeing it again.
