Ok, then the answer has to be Robert but I cannot say why.

SOLUTION TO THE SMITHSONIAN CLOCK PUZZLE

Each hour the two clocks drift 20 seconds apart. We must first determine in how many days they will come together again. Well, they will be together
again after they have drifted 12 hours apart, which is 43,200 seconds ( 12x60x60). Since they drift apart 20 seconds each hour, they drift apart
43,200 seconds in 2160 hours (43,200 divided by 20), which is 90 days (2160 divided by 24).Thus they will be together again in 90 days.

Now, how can one fit 90 days between some day in Jan. and some day in May? Only from the last day in Jan. to the first day in May, and provided
IT IS NOT A LEAP YEAR ! [You can check this on a calender.] On a leap year it is impossible for any day in Jan. to be exactly 90 days away from any day in May. Thus the year of the story is not a leap year! Now, since on the year of the story Robert is 47, had he been born in 1933, the year would be 1980, which IS a leap year, hence Robert was not born in 1933. Thus he was born in 1932 and is therefore the older one.

Raymond, do you have any new quizzes relating to musicians? Something that's not already up in this thread (which may be impossible...)? If you do, put the quiz up but not the answers.

Ok, taking another stab at some of these....

#1 or #2 - maybe Bela Bartok is in there somehow - like Bela Bark-alot, or something like that???

#3 - Rachmaninoff - maybe something like Rachmaninoft?

That's as close as I could get for now....

Monica, your Bela Bark Dog is indeed canine, but not particularly feline. For (1) I was thinking of Meow-Zart, also known as Mutts-Art. To make him even more canine is the well known

fact that when he grew up, he joined a wolf gang!

As for (2) I was thinking of Johann SEA-Bastion Bark.

As for (3) I was thinking of Pyotr Illyich Try-Coffee-Ski

Is the 'fro out?
I still want to go to Studio 54.
Shall I leave my bell bottoms in the closet along with my wide white belt and white corfam shoes?

Oh, its so hard to be hip... (don't anyone finish that.)

I still have platform shoes, but that's because they are back in fashion (in womens shoes). I have a lot of business suits, probably they are polyester too - I've never read the tags.
Sorry, no more wide white belts, but bell-bottoms are back in again too, sort of. No fros, though, and I've never been to Studio 54, but I've watched Saturday Night Fever a bunch of times. Does that count? And what the heck are "white corfam shoes"?

Corfam was a plastic material used in the '60s and '70s that didn't need polishing. It was a sort of "faux patent leather".

If I were to wear the platforms (I did wear them in the early and mid '70s) I would either fall or get a nose bleed.

To be honest, I have known that the '70s have become the retro-chic of this generation. The choir director that I work with at the school brought in the jacket to a polyester leisure suit (he's 25 so it could not have started out as his). That was scary. But I have seen the white belts lately as well as wide ties in full windsor knots (which are huge on a wide tie) bigger shirt collars and flared / bell bottom pants. I bought a pair of "boot cut" jeans a few weeks ago. That used to mean that the leg was wider to fit over the boots. I got them home and they were just short of bell bottoms (OMG).

Of course my theme song for a while has been "I was retro, when retro was brand new" (sung to the tune of "I was country when country wasn't cool").
