    Ok...
    Prior to his long illness, he had had a couple of small chart successes - the first of which was a song about an animal. And his stage name was the name of a different animal.

    Yes - the brilliant Cat Stevens (well, until religion took hold). After a prolongued spell in hospital with tuberculosis and no touring for around nine months, he supported the Who in their LSE benefit concert in The Roundhouse in early 1969 - and turned out have become a rather fine instrospective singer/songwriter, one who was probably more popular around the world than he was in the UK. His albums from the early 70s were most definitely the stuff of romantic candle-lit rooms, 'incense' and ice cold white wine...;)

    Over to you.

    The quantity of onions necessary to make Zwiebelkuchen. The combination with new Moselle wine is designed to make you pass wind prodigiously. As such, there are strict rules as to the ingredients - of which the main one is an excess of new onions. I've tried it - powered our tandem for hours. Bit unfortunate for my stoker.

    A few clues here: The law was originally only for a city, then in 1516 for an area (Duchy) and in 1909 for a whole country. It was originally made in order to protect local producers against foreign competition. It was challenged in 1987 by the EU on the grounds that it was protectionist !
