Many thanks to all who took part. Welcome BBM2.

GK, Ari and AB 5/5. Brill! Andyc 4/5, Jazzy 3/5. Wonderful!

There's no need to add my workings as they've been clearly spelled out. Nevertheless, I'll stick 'em on - just for the record.

1. subtractive anag(insane and not) of “British to dump” - “stupid” = THROMBI = clots
2. (double) Marvellous! (inf) = OUT OF SIGHT! (Chambers Dict – no mention of it being an Americanism) = hidden
3. can = tin; endless walks = alk; ‘take place around’ = TALK-IN = an informal yet intensive discussion (Chambers Dict).
4. grow weary = flag; each one = all (each one of the cups...all of the cups...); Spain = E; each one coming back to Spain = e + lla, yielding FLAGELLA = whips (plu of flagellum)
5. CP + H (Dictionary entries); ‘in agreement’ = ‘at one’ (C.O.D under ‘one’);’ in agreement’ about = ‘eno ta’; CPH ‘embracing’ = C(eno ta)PH = CENOTAPH = an empty tomb (Chambers – principal def).


Off now to diet. I DON'T think so!!! I'll take a peek in again before the night is out.
Thanks for your kind remarks. I'm still amazed at the skill you folf show at "cold solving". CU

And just whom are you calling a folf? Excellent clues as always, Jolan. Now pass the gravy.

Hi again jolan
I think you must have changed your clue to #4 at some stage - the one you gave us had EARTH for E, not SPAIN.
(P.S. I had a full house as well, though only just before the deadline)
Thanks again.

glad you mentioned that Chrise, i couldn't make sense of the E and cups (E-Cups?).
couldn't get 3 and 4 but was all good stuff.

E-cups, trevor? Been on the juice again? (Or are they electronic drinking vesels?)
