What is the connection between Broughton Hall in Liverpool and the Titanic. Be careful the answer is a bit tricky
Go on, Go on,you're on the right lines but forget the billiards, that clue is all balls LOLR651400 said:I still say Benjidog has terrier blood somewhere.You have to hand it to him for his tenacity on this forum.
I confess m'lud to much googling to get the answer but it does enlighten one on the big deals made over a simple game of billiards all those years ago.
Broughton Hall was the home of German financier Schaube whose nephew was Wolff of H&W...
White Star Line was created over a game of billiards between Ismay and Imrie at BH. Company to be financed by Schaube, ships to be built by of H&W.
Awww shut up!!! I was three sheets to the wind at the time and Celine made me an offer I couldn't refuse (*)) (it involved cream, trifle and a big spoon but that's another story) Gulpers you are FAR too young for such details. (EEK) Now Kate Winslett OOOOOOOHHHHHHH LOLGulpers said:Brian,
Oul hand is indeed famous - he did the backing vocals on Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" track. Wonderful wasn't it! (Jester)
Not me Benjidog, I can't carry a tune in a bucket, come to think of it neither can Celine. LOLbenjidog said:Hi Oul Hand,
Just read your profile and realised I am talking to an expert! I should have checked it first and would maybe have picked up on H&W a lot earlier! I am afraid I didn't know about your book until now but I am sure it was excellent. I hope you had nothing to do with that bloody Celine Dion song on the James Cameron film - if so you have a lot to answer for. (Whaaa)
I am nothing if not persistent. The real Benjidog on the avatar is a Bearded Collie and is only persistent when it comes to food.
Careful Oul hand, watch the Blood Pressure!Tmac1720 said:Awww shut up!!!
