Question:
Why is something in great shape said to be in “A1 condition”?
Answer:
In their early days, Lloyd’s of London used an “A list” to classify sailing ships for insurance purposes. Only vessels meeting strict specifications would go to the top of that list, where they were said to be in A1 condition. When, as a general insurer, the company began covering everything from Mary Hart’s legs to Jennifer Lopez’s derrière, Lloyd’s continued to classify anything first rate as “A1.”

    Woman in Love

    Barry and Robin Gibb wrote the song for Streisand but the former told Billboard he gives the artist most of the credit. At least 80 per cent of the success of the record belongs to her.
