    Re: Newsletter 3rd October 2014

    Thanks Alastair, excellent sermon! I notice that Tom Devine in "To the Ends of the Earth" makes the same point about Scotland failing to modernize its heavy industries after WWII as you make about...

    Re: No newsletter for 19th September 2014

    Look after yourself first Alastair, and many of us here share your satisfaction with the referendum results. We'll see if Westminster lives up to its promises, which would be surprising, but overall...

    Re: Enigma Machine #78

    I'm a bit secluded in Saskatchewan at the moment, but got Hugh's message and can say that #4 is "Ho Ho Ho", which is presented H0H H0H as the Canadian Postal Code for Santa Clause at the North Pole....

    Re: Enigma Machine #75

    I'm with Ranald on this one, but may "A Warrior's Journey" for #7 - dreadful Bruce Lee stuff. #5 could be "Second Sight" and something about "Interview" inn #12. I'm not often near the internet for...

    Re: Malaysian Air Lines crash

    Elda, if "peasants" means "farmers" then indeed, the Ukraine is in large part an agricultural nation, but you may have seen some of those same peasants praying passionately for the dead as they were...

    Re: Enigma Machine #71

    Joan scooped my sudden "highway overpass" epiphany, but I was going to try "Stitch in Time" for #10 (looks a bit like a baseball), ... but "half time" works better.

    I'm with Joan on 4, 6 and 7. Then #3 - Criminal; #5 - Who's In Charge; #8 - Down in the Dumps; #9 - Nowhere in Sight; #11 - Gathering Storm; and #12 - Illuminate. I thought maybe "Missing Link" for...

    Thanks Alastair, the site seems to be fine tonight and I learn more about computers from you than from my own IT department!

    Re: Enigma Machine #69

    Thanks Hugh, so much for over-thinking! Let's try "Black Beauty" for #6 - my little sister's favourite story, and actually a significant bit of animal welfare history!

    Re: Enigma Machine #69

    #9 - Blackjack? I was going to suggest "Beauty Spot" of #6 but maybe that's what Ranald meant? The golden arrow in #12 has me stumped.

    Re: Jacobite Songs and Ballads of Scotland

    Thanks Alastair, interesting as much for the fact that it existed 115 years after "the '45" as for its content. There may be parallels to "reconciliation" initiatives in today's world, but I still...

    Re: Enigma Machine #68

    I'm with Joan on #2, #4 and #10. I'd vary the other two slightly: #3 - Without a Second Glance and #12 - Getting Up at the Break of Dawn. Then #5 - A Man for all Seasons, #7 - Unemployment and #8 -...

    Re: Enigma Machine #67

    Good work all! It hardly pays to check in today, but maybe "light in weight" for #11 is more consistent with the devious clarity of #1?

    Re: Enigma Machine #66

    I'll agree with Joan on #12, but think #1 is "A Horse of a Different Colour" (note the Canadian spelling!); #3 is "Alfred Nobel": #8 is "Icing on the Cake" and #11 is "Laughing Hyenas".

    Re: Enigma Machine #65

    Good morning all, and glad to see you've only got two knees to worry about Hugh! I'll chip in #1 - Stitch in Time, #3 - Down in the Dumps, # 7 - Needle in a Haystack, and #8 - Missing a Beat.

    A very quick group this week! I'm with Ranald on #10, and would have left #9 at plain old "Olive Oil".

    The story was on CBC this morning, so I guess we're all in the same boat. A pox on all hackers and others of their ilk!

    I'm with Joan on #6 and #12, but maybe #8 is "Cut Both Ways"? Then #1 - Three Cheers For Them; #2 - Old Tricks; #3 - Climbing Rock; #5 - Rocking Horse; #7 - Emanate and #9 - A Long Recovery. Happy...
