Should be, "You could hear the hoof beats pound as they raced across the ground".

I'll leave this one for someone else to have first stab at as I've jumped in first on the last two. I've got ten of them at the mo.

Not sure anybody's old enough to remember that one Mike, except you, me, and john. Maybe rubes as well.

Sure you'll get the others in time.

Rubes definitely older than me: Palfy also (just). Think patto's similar generation as well but he's not given DOB in his profile. Cornish must be not far off.

It's supposed to be shite; novelty one hit wonder. British sense of humour (although now outdated).

Me too. Me too. Looking back, it's surprising that Benny Hill humour was so acceptable.

It must be difficult to imagine for today's generation that we got milk from the traveling milkman and bread from the baker's van (and, in our case, books from the mobile library). There was also the "spastic man" collecting the pools. It really did instill a sense of community, and rumours spread like wildfire!
