Afternoon, all...

"One bedroom over to right needs special plug" = 'adapter'.
"River around Maidenhead? No" = 'Cam'.
"Second time I start to formulate main theme" = 'motif'. Are they using 'mo' for 'second' here i.e. 'in a mo/in a second'? The rest is obvious.

Many thanks.

hi pooksahib, had fun with your last thread. I heard about that cable thing, left thousands without t'internet.
1st answer is adapTOr
a, pad - room backwards, to, r.
I think.

p.s you are right, mo = second. I've seen it used more than a few times.

A bedroom is 'a pad' and over means turn it round.

A DAP + to right (TO R) = ADAPTOR

Hi Pooksahib,

I hope the sun's shining where you are. CAM -
the construct is CA, which is the abbreviation for circa [approximately] + M - MaidenHEAD.

I hope this is of help to you.

Regards,

Caravaggio

Hi Caravaggio,
I think the problem with that clue (Cam),
is why is the word "no" there?

Hi Trevor,

And I hope the sun's shining where you are too!

If I'm not mistaken, the Cam is a tributary of the Ouse and would flow out somewhere in the Norfolk area. For that reason, it's nowhere near Maidenhead! So the compiler has simply used 'No'.

Regards,

Caravaggio

Thanks Caravaggio.
I just couldn't see how the "No" worked
Of course, it's fairly obvious now.
