I think putsch should be common; it should be known to anyone with even a passing knowledge of twentieth century European history.

But as for putsches?

I'm not so sure.

The scene:

Elderly Jewish woman sipping a nice glass of Kedem grape juice, pondering word game over the dining room table. A dybbuk urges her to type in the Yiddish she knows the game will reject.  She Canít resist.

Itís accepted.

Expulsion of shocked laughter causes spritzing of fine purple droplets from mouth to fresh tablecloth.

I spend much too much time on Facebook, looking at posts from a wide variety of friends, and see all forms of covid. In spoken casual conversation, though, almost everyone says covic/Covid without the 19.  I don't think this word is going to fade into the background for at least a generation or two - it's had too huge an impact on our lives.

I think I've seen it more in fantasy and science fiction than I have otherwise, but I have seen it in books set in (wet-navy) ship settings.  I agree that it is probably not common.

Hi Pen and Mike

I couldnít get your puzzle, Mike, but my daughter cracked it. I did get yours , Pen, but I think the date should be 1963.

If you can wait until I get back to Redlands this afternoon, I will put in a spoiler alert.

Sorry Mike you have me stumped! I did have a thought on what the film might be but that could be the first picture leading me astray! I'll come back to it later & hope for some divine inspiration :laugh:

My puzzle is a comedy film from 1961.
#3 #5 #3 #4 #3
Can you name the star please?  He was probably better known for appearing on radio & television.


I cooked a steak on my new George Formby grill last night...
turned out nice again!

I've been diagnosed with a fear of giants...

I'll have another go at doing a rebus:

Four words, 4-2-3-4

The last words spoken in a classic 1960 black /white comedy

Who spoke the words to who(m)? (Actors' names) (And name of the film, of course)

Yes I know. I try to reach common words first. Probably deveining prawns in Australia is way more common than elsewhere! Like Les I know I spent literally hours deveining prawns this last Christmas and New Year, because I can't stand eating the poopshoot.
