Well, I wouldn’t be the GLUMMEST having got the seed word in today’s puzzle but I’m surely glummer than the rosetteers in our merry band of forumites. Props to auntiemo, 2dognight, rogue_mother, Roddles (who continues his winning streak!) and doxydaisy. 👏👏👏

On twenty one words found and one off the pace were our rosettenears dragonman and Maudland. Close but no cigar!!! 😉

ozzyjune and ozzyjack were both in the unenviable position of being two short but, as they say, misery loves company…  :D :D :D

Nineteen commons found saw me team up with vizal at three off the pace – having found glute and gluteus, it seems GLUTES was beyond me! Perhaps I’ve bean [sic] more interested in doing something with that spare TULLE to figure out something to do for dinner with all the LEGUMEs in my pantry…

yelnats was next on eighteen followed by the welcome return of RL on seventeen while blackrockrose and Jancsika were sweet sixteen again. ozzymAndias scored fourteen commons found which rounded out our clique of 7bm’ers…

Mavenhood was achieved by dragonman and rogue_mother only so well done them…

For anyone who likes Wordle but wishes there was more than one game a day there's this one:

It's exactly the same to play but there are unlimited games.

...because, if you'd got larger, you would have been two short???  ??? ??? ???  ...and that would have been a contradiction... :-R :-R :-R

LOL

I will not renege on the claim that greengage is possibly not common.

I'm back Jack

My rebus is a film from the 1990's which I love.

8 (#6 + #2) 8 (#4 + #4)


Please use the surname of the actor in the second picture & change the first letter of the third picture.  You can pick any of the nine options in the last picture.

         

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, French scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the French: in the weeks that followed, American archaeologists dug to a depth of 20 feet before finding traces of copper wire. Shortly afterwards, they published an article in the New York Times saying : "American archaeologists, having found traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the French."
A few weeks later, ‘The British Archaeological Society of Northern England’ reported the following: "After digging down to a depth of 33 feet in the Skipton area of North Yorkshire in 2011, Charlie Hardcastle, a self-taught amateur archaeologist, reported that he had found absolutely f&*% all. Charlie has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Britain had already gone wireless."

Leave you with a silly joke & this...
