Good Evening AB Linkers, everywhere!

Wind, rain, gales, floods - we've experienced them all this week. Except, that is, for Crofter who has been sampling the more tropical climate of Tenerife. Today though, it is time to return to reality as Crofter flies home, hopefully in time for tomorrow' MM Links game.

And while we are talking of tomorrow's game, can Strix fight off the challenge from grannydi and tearinghair? What plotting will be going on in the shrubbery? Who will get locked in the p(l)otting shed? Will Sarumite's magic mushrooms have any bearing on the outcome? What I do know though is that to be in with a chance of bonus points, the best advice is to get out of the shrubbery as fast as you can as soon as the gates open at 9:00am. The best supporting evidence for that is the glut of 21 bonus points handed out last weekend. Can you better that this week?

This is the final game of the month so the new setter will be chosen on the results of November's games. Who will it be?

Last Friday I mentioned that I was having problems with my colour laser printer. This week I can report that it is now cleaned and back together once more. It is even producing prints that are better than it has managed for over a year! ART - TRA quizzes are now back in production.

Crofter's opening remarks will be posted in Q & P at 8.45am tomorrow and the four words to be linked should be declared at 9.00am, when the MM Links game kicks off in earnest. Remember, play early if possible because first hits can gain bonus points!

Remember, this is also the final round in the international version of this same game which is called KM Links and kicks off at 7:00 am (or very soon thereafter). In that game, the timing of your posting is deemed to be irrelevant ~ only the number of hits you are able to register. The regular organiser of KM Links comes all the way from Oz and goes by the name of “seekeerz”. As Crofter always says ~ “Why not chance your arm at both Link Games?” They both remain open for most of the weekend and all entries are scored and entered on to master scoreboards.

Until Crofter (or I) see you tomorrow ~ “Happy Linking”!

The 'Shrubbery' is now open.
Evening all! Did I say last week that I was enjoying your quiz, Gen2? I must have been mad - it's driving me insane!
Evening Gen2 and tearinghair.
Yes I am tearing my hair out too with the ART -TRA quiz.
Evening all...had trouble logging on.

tearinghair & x-ray,
The quiz is not supposed to drive you demented - every answer fits its clue exactly. Just take it slow and steady and enjoy it. Maybe a cushion tied to the backside would be a good idea if you get the urge to kick yourself too frequently.

You could try the method that a local friend is trying - he discusses a clue with his wife before going to sleep, and then he wakes up around 3:30 am with the answer.

Actually, I tried to make just 5 of them particularly hard in order to sort out the top puzzlers. The rest I would call just standard crossword clues.

Lots of time still left.
I could become AN
have dropped the ET from the end already so whats a J between friiends?
hope you get the two you need tomorrow
face the fray it is end of the month so will be busy
I am taking the grandchildren to a model railway exhibition
will cost an arm and a leg when they start wanting no doubt
still that is half the fun
Are they still the age to believe in Santa Jan....that is the best time. I loved it when my were younger. I gave Laura one of the letters she wrote to Santa on her 21st...she remembered writing it! I gave it to her on her 21st...she didn't write it at 21!...Better clear that one up! :-))
Nobody seems to be up to speed tonight - where's the glass of wine girls??
don't think Jack does, he is nearly 9
Lily may but probably Jack has told her
I ofcourse still believe in the old chap!
I have asked for a phone, as I always get the oldest cast offs in the family
so want one of my own with instructions that I can read and sort out myself
but not on Christmas day when I have had a drink!
Here you are grannydi...

Hope you get one Jan....just shout loudly so Steve can hear...just in case Jack's right!
When you think about it, don't know about you lot....but when we were kids we were happy with just a stocking filled with goodies, and if we were lucky we would perhaps get one larger toy each. But we loved it.
Thanks pauline, but red gives me an upset stomach - got a nice sauvignon blanc? Or are you all trying to stay sober ready for the linking tomorrow?
My thoughts this week have been with the folks over in Cumbria, it's been really bad for them and they have my sympathy.
Cheers - I've found a glass of Nobilo
Yes...grannydi...the pictures of the flooding looked awful. What a terrible ordeal for them.

I am actually drinking tea at the moment! Must go and open a bottle of is Friday night! Red used to give me headache too, but I'm okay most of them now...I suppose practice made perfect! :-)
Must be off shortly to rest the little grey cells in preparation for tomorrows competition.
Enjoy the rest of your evening and good luck for tomorrow
Haven't bought any presents yet apart from the ones for family in California; I prefer the atmosphere in the town centre in the final few days before Christmas. People still walk into you but smile while they're doing it......

Eight clues to go, Gen2, plus two answers I'm not sure about. Don't get me wrong, I do like to be driven insane!
Goodnight grannydi...and good luck!
Will see you all in a few weeks time hopefully. Will be awol for a month or so from next week.
