    Do look after your health Alastair. I can't imagine life without the ES site but your own well-being comes first! Definitely let us know if there is anything we can do to lighten your load! Take care.

    Hmm. Where I come from, elevators hold grain, so the signs were things like "Saskatchewan Wheat Pool" or "United Grain Growers", with the names of little towns on the front. Most of those are gone...

    I'm going to go with #3 - Andes Mountains. #9 works out to Elevator, but there may be more to it? And #12 maybe Broken Nose or Blocked Nose?
