    The Mozart and Beethoven were the ones I could identify. I thought no.1 sounds very much like Granados and no.11 can't be anyone else but Mompou. Bit peeved I did not spot the Chopin, but it's really sneaky to only play the LH :x

    Pic 6 is correct and so is pic #3. Isn't that funny?

    Track 1 is Granados and track 11 is Mompou.

    Pete - I think you are up to 10 points now. I declare you the Winner!! Hurray! Yippee! Way to go! etc...! :lol:

    Pic #1 is Barcelona = Granados and Mompou
    pic #2 is the Square D'Orleans in Paris - One of Chopin's apartments.

    Ok - game over. Pete - you're up.

    ***********
    My run/walk this morning was more walking than running. But I was out there for a good hour, also. And then I went to my sister's for a family birthday party and ate too much again, so my run/walk was wasted. Oh well...I'll hit the pavement again tomorrow.

    It was my understanding that everyone had heard...

    That the bird is the word! :lol:
    (A completely random reference to the 1963 song "Surfing Bird" the most annoying thing I've ever heard.)

    I'm watching that silly cartoon "Family Guy" last night and that was the theme of the show. It was one of the very few times I've literally held my side laughing. Peter Griffin finds a record of the song and plays it till Stewie gets a nosebleed.

    For those of you unfamiliar with the song, here it is. (It'll get stuck in your head like a bad toothache.) Sorry.

    BTW, making a new game...suggestions? I could do more name that place but it's getting a bit tedious, IMO. Maybe I should make a pot party....I mean potpourri. :oops: :lol:

    I saw that one, it cracks me up! If only it were that way in real life...

    The signature is from this plaque that hung in my office (as a manager of one of those go-kart/video game/birthday party places) That job sucked so much. But I'm glad I had it. Those were the days...NOT!

    Well in the meantime here is another logic puzzle alla arabia

    The grandfather of the reigning Sheikh of Shibam was a muslim faithful to the law and took unto himself five wives. From the information given, can you establish in which order he married the five wives and solve the name of the father of each bride and his occupation?

    Clues

    1. The Sheikh was already the husband of Muna when he espoused the daughter of Hussein, the camel driver.

    2. Yasmin's father was the goatherd, but Salome was not the daughter of Mahmoud and Muna's father was not the grower of coconuts.

    3. The tent-maker's daughter became the Sheikh's fifth wife.

    4. Salim, who was not the owner of the goats, was the father of the Sheikh's second wife, but the fourth wife was not the daughter of Mahmoud.

    5. Fatima, the daughter of Faisal, had precedence over the daughter of Hakim by virtue of her seniority in the harem.

    6. Leila was wifer number three.

    Important info

    Daughter's names: Fatima, Leila, Muna, Salome, Yasmin
    Father's names: Faisal, Hakim, Hussein, Mahmoud, Salim
    Occupations: Camel driver, coconut grower, goatherd, Sheikh's bodyguard, tent-maker
    Possible order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5




    I'll give the answers on Wednesday circa 15:00 Madrid Time. :wink:

    ...still grossed out, but here is an attempt at the puzzle:

    Hussein/camel driver/Leila/4

    Mahmoud/goat/Yasmin/1

    Hakim/tentmaker/Muna/5

    Salim/?/Salome/2

    Faisal/?/Fatima/4

    I can't figure out who is the body guard and who is the coconut. Is the rest of it correct?

    Here we go:

    Neither Fatima, the daughter of Faisal (clue 5), nor Muna (Clue 1) was the fifth wife, who was the daughter of the tent-maker (clue 3) and who therefore cannot have been Yasmin, either, since her father was the goatherd (clue 2). Since Leila was wife number three (clue 6), the fifth wife must have been Salome. We know that Muna's father was neither the tent-maker nor the goatherd, nor was he either Hussein, the camel drover (clue 1), or the coconut grower (clue 2); so he must have been the Sheikh's bodyguard. Weknow that Salim was not Fatima's father and, as he was the father of the second wife (clue 4), his daughter was neither Leila nor Salome. He was not the goatherd (clue 4), either, so his daughter was not Yasmin and must have been Muna.

    We now know either the name or the occupation of four of the wives' fathers, so Leila must have been the daughter of Hussein, the camel drover, and, by elimination, Faisal, the father of Fatima, must have been the coconut grower. Salome's father was not Mahmoud (clue 2), the goatherd father of Yasmin. Therefore Yasmin was not the Sheikh's fourth wife (clue 4) and must have been his firt, leaving the fourth wife as Fatima, the daughter of Faisal.

    Summary:

    Wife # 1 Yasmin--daughter of Mahmoud the goatherd
    Wife # 2 Muna--daughter of Salim, the Sheikh's bodyguard
    Wife # 3 Leila-- daughter of Hussein, the camel driver.
    Wife # 4 Fatima--daughter of Faisal. the coconut grower
    Wife # 5 Salome--daughter of Hakim, the tent-maker


    I wonder what it would be like to have five wives? :wink: :? I'm sure it has its drawbacks. Would the pros out weigh the cons?
