Quick post, then out to the sunshine...

"College head's study has one" = Dean.
"It was used to pick up sounds in sewer" = needle.
"Scottish flower clipped as unwanted plant" = weed.
"Sound that's normal on French river" = noise. (I initially had 'Seine' which I thought was quite good...).

Many thanks.

Hi PS.

"College head's study has one" = Dean ... ('a' inside 'den')
"It was used to pick up sounds in sewer" = needle ('needle' on record player and used by a person who sews.)
"Scottish flower clipped as unwanted plant" = weed ('tweed'=river - 't')
"Sound that's normal on French river" = noise. ('n'=normal + 'Oise' =name of french river).

Hey TJ !

Absolutely no 'sorry' needed at all.

Blame the designers of the WWW, who require us to refresh pages to see if there are any updates since they were last loaded.

We are all slaves to the machine ...

Thanks lads. I really must remember to start seeing the alternative pronunciations of words like 'sewer'.

"wicked" is one that always gets me. It can mean having a wick, like a candle.
