Barbara knew it, of course; maybe she didn't post it to the list.

It's mostly a mystery to me, matey.

Scramble surname, you get Snow plus change, but maybe that's irrelevant.
This sort of parochial rubbish might be known to obsessed
British-Australians yearning for `Home', but not to me (aside from Mir):
Question 18: 1 New car licence numbers; 2 Mir
space station; 3 Des O'Connor (autobiography,
Bananas Can't Fly); 4 River Tyne (Millennium
Bridge, The Eyelid); 5 Glenalmond; 6 brain (BSE
research); 7 Ian Woosnam's; 8 St Catharine's
College, Cambridge; 9 Hull crown court (trial of
Leeds United footballers); 10 Prince Charles
(slapped with flower in Riga).
I did get 5 of the 10 Q. 6 options right, and should have done better.
