have caprice too. It is a film title starring Doris Day and loosely means to carry on. That is the best I can come up with.

Good morning, John.
18d. Haw is a Scottish word for a berry. Beret is pronounced.......
24ac. 4 = D 5 = E prefix for "three times" (e.g. tercentary) = TER
D+E+TER
Hoping this helps!
