28 Thomas Greene
Is 41 Yorick?
Agree with Yorick

// ‘He hath bore me on his back a thousand times [i.e. given the boy Hamlet many a piggyback ride]//
10) Christopher Plummer fits. He's definitely worked with Ewan McGregor, Alec Guinness and Andrew Garfield. I don't know about either of the other two Spider-Men. Plummer's done a lot of Shakespeare.
35: Thomas Russell

of Rushock, overseer of Shakespeare's will, was fined £15 under distraint of knighthood laws for failing to attend the coronation of Charles I

Just an add on to Christopher Plummer, the other Spider-Man was neither Tobey Maguire nor Tom Holland, but the 1970s version, played by Nicholas Hammond, who was Friedrich von Trapp in The Sound Of Music, alongside Mr Plummer.
I have Thomas Quiney for Q28 but can't find the children William & Anne for either him or Thomas Greene
//Thomas Greene. He was also one of Shakespeare's closest friends in Stratford, to judge by the surviving evidence. He was living in New Place in 1609 and possibly for some time before, and in his diary he refers affectionately to "my cosen Shakespeare" numerous times around 1614. Three of his children were born in Stratford, and he named two of them "William" and "Anne," most likely after Shakespeare and his wife.//
Thank you elliemay - I got the wrong Thomas Greene
Thecorbyloon- its a suprse to me but its diffrent for the first year a think. The rules say
//For example, if a worker starts employment part-way through a leave year, they will receive
1/12th of their full annual leave entitlement on their first day. After they have been inemployment for a full month, they receive another 1/12th of their full annual entitlement on thefirst day of the second month, and again on the first day of the third month, continuing to theend of the leave year. //
So do they got a full months worth of holiday straightaway on 28th Sep, then same again on 28 October and so on? Does my head in. Its why am a shelf stacker and trolly pusher not a penspusher in HR
You're welcome gg. Any ideas on 21?

There is a bronze sculpture of William Shakespeare by John Quincy Adams Ward, located in Central Park in Manhattan, New York. The statue was created in 1870 and unveiled in Central Park in 1872
59 is Baz Lurhmann, who also directed Romeo+Juliet (the ad was for Chanel)
