marmalade - yes it is bier. The answer is an Australian slang word, and is in Chambers.

palman - I have a 9 letter word beginning with B which is another word for a Great Dane (so 10 letters with the addition of an S to fit Danes plural), but I can't for the life of me see how 'she can help to accommodate' can lead to that word! Am I on the right lines with the definition part of the clue, or is it something totally different?

Thanks Hufflecat, and are the other two letters e,t, being the back of street? If so, I still can't make a word. Sorry to be so slow. It may be the glass of wine!

Hufflecat, I can't see the problem with 28 being k....d.
It fits with the dictionary definition and clue 64 is not the name or breed of a cat, also 12 and 14. I had no doubts when I got that one, But Neville may prove me wrong!

marmalade - no, think 'street backwards', rather than 'the back of street'. Re 28, I don't know - if it is kennelmaid the clue just seems a bit lame to me compared with the other 99, and a friend who also regularly does these Rainbow quizzes agrees (she has also got the other 99).

marmalade - 36 is a cartoon cat, but more recent than Corky! There's an anagram of the whole name in the clue. 'The mail' refers to the newspaper the strip appears in.
