Googling today’s (as a non-view of Coronation Street) has me puzzled as the person was allegedly trying to win back her “partner” but was he also her ex-husband? I haven’t a scooby! Let’s hope this isn’t another controversy (though I suppose they keep the page lively which is good for revenue 😉 )

Same here. I don’t watch it either. Even googling I still wasn’t 100% sure so just guessed at the answer!!

I read the comments and completely forgot the question 🙂 I put his name instead, doh:D

I wasn’t sure which country you were referring to for the Bridge of Sighs… there are three at least and I don’t mean the cities mentioned below by Phil (Sorry Phil)… I will try to remember to post all 3 I know of tomorrow. X

Phil

I purposely didn’t mention the one I assumed they were looking for. Seems they accepted all the answers anyway.

“In which country is the Bridge of Sighs?”

Which one?
Bridge of Sighs (Oxford)
Bridge of Sighs (Cambridge)
Or another one?

Sally
Member
Sally

I spent less than a minute on google and without even clicking any of the links, just reading the couple of lines under each result, it’s clear that both those are just nicknamed that *because* of the original – in fact the Oxford one has it’s own real name (Hertford Bridge) & presumably the Cambridge one is the same. So it’s pretty obvious which is the actual answer!

Ruskin
Member
Ruskin

Never mind the bridge – this seems to be the page of sighs since the Toy Story incident! Lol

Mark
Member
Mark

and today’s question might cause even more disagreement as I’m aware of 2 countries with a bridge of that name. I’ve gone for the more famous one.

Ruskin

I did the same 🙂

Daniel I believe the answer to yesterday’s question maybe different what you posted. he is the 2019 voice

Hollie

Tim Allen voiced Buzz Lightyear in all the films released to date as far as I’m aware. What do you think the answer is?

Heather10

Heather10

I went with Patrick warburton

Hollie

I think Patrick only voiced him in the American TV Series called Buzz Lightyear of Star Command x

Check out iMDB as it lists all the films, games and tv series and voices of each character. The question was: “In Toy Story, who provides the voice of Buzz Lightyear?” Tim Allen is the voice of Buzz in all 4 films.

Heather10
Member
Heather10

As you have said toy story I have gone with the voice for that one as it was a different person for toy story 3

Speedmaster
Member
Speedmaster

Who told you that? Same person for all 4 as far as I am aware.

Heather10
Member
Heather10

Nope a very quick google of the cast shows different & toy story 4 which is not due for release till next year has a totally different person doing the voice

Ruskin
Member
Ruskin

I listed the voice from films, tv series & games as they were each different & it wasn’t specified which 🙂

Heather10
Member
Heather10

I just typed in google voice of buzz Lightyear & gave me a couple of different options. further looking shows you the different names

But it didn’t say “in the Toy Story film(s)” therefore it could have been the series or even the games

Hollie
Member
Hollie

The series aren’t called “Toy Story”, they have a different name.

Elsee
Member
Elsee

The question was Toy Story (not Toy Story 2, 3, 4 etc) and that was Tim Allen. I think it was also him in 2 and 3.

Very random question today, haven’t heard that song in years!

purplevamp

This song always reminds me of the kids show Recess when I watched it with my eldest son when he was little, when Mikey sang it at the end. Groovy!!!

I answered Pie, hope it still counts 🙂

I would like to point out that MMXVIII is the Roman number, therefore it is the answer to the question.
