Hi again Winnie. Thanks for ISBN number. Have found a 2nd hand one for £13.21 + postage! Back to the clues you gave me earlier.
No.18. Makes no sense to me despite looking up beginning of R words? Any more clues?
No.37. Is this something HANG?
No.40. Still can't get the anagram as looked up Chambers Word Wizard & no anagram came up?
No.61. ??? Erach ... Cameh. Still stuck.
No.63. The game of pool is billiards - too long word & anyway it's nothing to do with dogs or cats ???
LAST PAGE: clues if you please?
81. I have gone into Connecticut to meet the perfume producer (5). No idea about this one.
92. ..... but elderly Tony, due more change, was blessed (3,11). Is this OLD. something?
94. Animals that caused an argument during church service (8). Does this begin L and end in S (breed of dogs)? Partly from church and service but not sure about the absence of letter L?
You must think me awfully thick!!!! Perhaps my Chambers 10th edition will help more next time round but in the meantime can you please help me to solve the remaining as above. Thanks.

Hi haerenai18. I've decided I should give up giving hints to folk as I have sent you off on a wild goose chase with the hint I gave you for 37.
I should have said - after 'start to'- take the first letter of the next 6 words. The result means contemptible scoundrels.
So sorry.

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I don't have Chambers 10th edition so I desperately need an alternative clue to 18!
also would appreciate a hint for 1, 62, 71, 88 and 94 - down to the last 6 and going away soon so would like to finish and get it sent off!

Thanks a million Winnie, Finally got 14 but anagram of words 1,2,3!
Thought I knew all of William's pals, but can't fathom this one. I must be brain dead as I can't make any sense of hints to 18 (and haven't got the right dictionary). As to a sport where there are tackles - I can't think of many sports that don't involve this - even fishing!!!
