Like Nonplussed, I'm not happy about no.30. Is there, I wonder, a dictionary giving either a)TWINKLE as an alternative to TWINKIE as the American bimbo, or b) TWINKIETOES as an alternative to TWINKLETOES. If not, I'm stumped!

Bill I don't have the copy of Chambers which they use but I go to the local reference library to seek help. I'll do that tomorrow if I have time and see what their many dictionaries tell me. No that it's the only one I need by a long shot!

Winnie....My answers to 16 and 26 don't begin with either of what you're thinking of although mine may not be correct. As for Greta Garbo, I can only think of her but have no idea at all so far, think it must be one of their really clever ones.

Winnie I won't say any more yet as it's still a bit early for giving real big hints

Winnie - I'm afraid that you don't have the correct answers for 16 and 26.

No 84 - you are right with garbo - that's the first word - the 2nd is an item of jewellery
