Sorry I mentioned it !



I agree it's a lot more commercial these days.


Not Currowan I'm afraid, around halfway.

Sorry about the eyestrain I caused you reading all my spray. I have not yet found an answer to your clue. The best I can do is either Mandemar /Mandarin or Mangoola/ Mangoes, neither of which fulfils the criteria. Three phone calls have delayed me so I'm still looking for Avocado, Apricot, C(K)umquat and Satsuma. Is the answer a singular item or in the plural, please?

Mangoes is correct and the town also starts with M , but it's not one of the ones you mentioned.

Memagong would fit if there was to be rearrangement, ie delete m and change g to s. Any use?

I apologise, I should have said rearrangement was needed.


Memagong is correct, well done and over to you.

I've done that too often myself to deserve an apology. My head gets ahead of my hand then I go from there. Change two letters of the seven of this place, rearrange slightly to discover a strange animal wandering around.

The animal is right but the place is wrong. Go up a bit further.

That's the one. A good ending to the day. Have you been enjoying the cricket? Did you watch the Tattoo? What did you think of it? Goodnight Rumpy.

Thank you and good morning Gussy.


I don't know about "enjoying" the cricket, it's been rather slow and not heading our way result wise.


I didn't watch the Tattoo, I just saw it on iView and thought I would draw you attention to it. Didn't a Tattoo tour Australia this year ?


Anyway, back to the clues.


Change two of the same letter to two of another letter to find a mineral in this 7 letter town.

Good morning Rumpy. From what I've heard of the cricket in the News I gather you and Tardy are not smiling like your emojis. India is certainly rubbing salt in the wounds of the Aussie team. Re the tattoo, I have seen one ad on screen saying the tattoo was coming, complete with a replica background of the castle, but I can't recall any date being mentioned, maybe because I wasn't very interested!! To the clue; Please may I ask if the two letters are together or separate in each case and they replace each other?

The letters replace each other, but they are separated in the word.

Since I got an email from notifications@webs.com on7.12.2018 welcoming me to the community I thought I would try to reply. I told them I was Gusset and explained about my new computer and tablet and that only my email address had been changed I asked them to rectify the problem then pressed Send. A message appeared above telling me to correct or cancel the address before sending. I tried changing notifications to contact but the same message appeared. What do you think of all that? I've kept the draft meantime in case I can use it later. This is a second attempt to send this to you. When I pressed Post as usual there was a message about being unable to access this site so I clicked the back arrow and that resulted in my getting back to the page but minus my original post.. Some funny goings on?
