Who said I wasn't??
 The thing is my tech abilities are very hit and miss. This week I had my first experience of Teams as I had an interview and I was really chuffed with my ability to make it work! Then I can't do a reply to you!
It's the same in a shop. One week you can't shift item X and the following week ther will be a run on it!

It's crossed my mind about Penny's weekend lady too, but I am sure that Penny will be contractually bound to make no comment on this.

Penny. Are those men in white coats driving a green van with square brick wheels? That was our family saying whenever anyone went a bit doolally tap!

Hi Pen

I have problems with smelly aftershaves , perfumes etc too. The favourite after shave for a lot of the young ones is Lynx Africa and that is really bad!I especially dislike fabric conditioners. The nursing home near me has recently had a new extractor system for the laundry and my local dog walk is now spoilt at certain times of the day as I sneeze my way past.

I think this has been the case for a few days on all of the puzzles.

Hi Penny
my knowledge of maraschinos only extended to them being placed on a cocktail stick and laid over the glass of snowball my grans and great aunts had at Xmas until reading that novel. I think the author was taking  the mick out of fancy menus!

I agree! A really hard one especially for a more moderate level player like myself. I did get the big word (for once) but only because the novel I was reading that day had a chef making a maraschino foam! He failed to make it properly but he did make me feel a bit smug.

Me too with ladyboy. I know all those words for things I can't remember. However, I usually can't remember THEM when they turn up on Chi!!!

Oh Penny. I wanted to disappoint TRex too but I would have gone too far in my accusations and level of disappointment in what was a revered institution;

Post nasal drip??? That is the way the world is going! Never use one word when three can be wasted.

I think that nimby is very much a British expression. I can't remember which politician put his size 10's in it a number of years ago about a planning application for a lot of housing developments too near his ancestral home,but it became a popular expression overnight. Having said that , I failed to see the "word?".If it is to be allowed then it should be uncommon.
