always learning- didnt know he was a Rev! now just the light sensors- but if what I think is right -then another wrong- like dropping a stitch when knitting.....

Updated version of the crossword itself as the numbers weren't too clear.

16 a mix of Commercial, National, 14 x 12, Dadant and a Warre
Thanks for that Mike - I had to look up the spelling of 26 down. For some reason I have always pronounced and spelt it with an "n" as the 3rd letter:banghead:

Got the rest - eventually - without reverting to google:seeya:

So far two people have completed it... both said they struggled with Q20. I got the spelling for Q26 from Wiki which I hope is the proper spelling.. :eek:

completed it sometime before 6am. Haven't had time to write down answers to email as too busy making up alternate (sometimes cryptic) clues for some questions to help/hinder other people (you know who you are).

No-one do Latin out there???? - "Little eyes"

Also sounds a bit like a small south american leopard.

Completed in less than 20 mins - answers were no bother but their placings were! My printed copy was far from clear - I need a new printer drum on the printer so reading the clues was difficult as well as the numbering clarity!

I will fit the new drum in the next twenty minutes!

Regards, RAB

Yes, I know who I am!! After a couple of drinks maybe not so sure- but I did complete it.

Finished! :hurray:

But I only got 2 across after Heathers tip, and I spelt 20 down wrong having checked afterwards- so no cigar. :sifone: But good fun- thanks Mike.

Thanks for doing that Mike, had to look some up, but that's how you learn.
Still not got 20 down yet but will track it down in the end.
Thanks again,
Tony & Sue

Probably about 5/6 at the moment
Took about 10-15 minutes to do what I could, but couldn't remember 26 and 28 down and am unsure what 14 across should be, as I changed my 9 down when I remembered what 8 across might be. So, all but three.

Reminds me on how little I know of the names of things - 7 to go and will have to revert to G:xmas-smiley-024::xmas-smiley-024:gle

Good fun, thanks Mike
