This is Manx Queenie, now back home in the UK and settled in once more. So, it's back to the old routine, and it hasn't taken long, as messages on the answer phone and letters through the mail all seemed to contain invitations, requests, confirmatory dates, etc. so I feel as if I've never been away!

Once a week Christiana and I volunteer our services at our local National Trust property, which is Gunby Hall and Gardens, about a 20-minute drive from our village. It is a small country house, built in 1700, and has housed a succession of delightfully eccentric people - the Massingberd family - which has included a vicar whose son wasted his inheritance on gambling and the high life before disappearing down the Amazon, never to be seen again, a lady who favoured masculine dress and founded a club in London to promote rights for women, and an army officer who, upon seeing Men from the Ministry during World War II who were measuring up trees on the estate, accused them of trespassing, only to then discover that the MoD intended to build a runway across his land, demolishing his house in the process.

It was at this point that the National Trust became involved, and today there is a very inviting family home open to all and sundry to visit. The family, no longer able to afford to tenant the house, let it out to a series of other tenants, some of whom were somewhat dubious to say the least, but now the Hall is no longer tenanted and is gradually being refurbished and, as the money comes in, so more rooms are being opened to the public - the somewhat bruised and battered house is blossoming under the tender, loving care of its current manager and our visitors love it!

More of this anon - tales of grand pianos, recalcitrant felines - but enough for now, I think

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I shall follow this rule on word length, in that each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!

Each of the selected link words may go in front of, or behind my challenge word to make a new longer word or to make a well-known phrase or saying. The combination will never be a person's name.

The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when gen2 will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.
