    Re: Enigma Machine #1

    #6 - Rockin' Chair; #7 - "Three Degrees Below Zero" (about 10 degrees warmer than it is here right now) and #9 - "Chip Off the Old Block". Cheers to all!

    Yes indeed for Monarch of the Glen. It runs seasonally on public television in British Columbia and is thoroughly enjoyable for the characters, scenery and buildings - especially the MacDonald...

    Re: Nature at its best - crows say thank you

    Thanks Ranald, the link works fine! A neat kid with a great story, but of course I'm partial to crows: my name translated from Suisse-Deutsch refers to Crows on a Hillside.

    Re: Enigma Machine #100

    I was thinking Tina Turner ("River Deep, Mountain High") rather than Loretta Lynne on #7, but both great songs and great minds do think alike!

    I also have the boxed set and it occasionally reruns on public television here in British Columbia. Oliver is a fine showman, and I also enjoy his "Coast" series now on its second round of the Isles...

    Hi all, I'll chip in with #1 - The End of My Rope; #2 - Without You; and maybe #7 - Mountain High and #10 - Leap Year. I'm stuck on #8 - Old/New, Adam/Eve, inverted or opposite so maybe someone else...

    Re: Enigma Machine #99

    I'm with Ranald (who must have taken my medical advice for a good recovery!) and Joan (who can have the snow, we've got enough here already!) on all except #1, which I think is "Man About Town". I'll...

    Good day all, and I hope you're feeling better Ranald - I'm sure you know the curative powers of whisky and honey, repeated as necessary! I'll pop in with #3 - Lead Foot; #8 - Tinhorn; #11 - Heart of...

    Belated Happy New Year all. #9 would be "Rock Around the Clock".

    I'm with Joan on #2, and will try #3 - Outdoor Lights and #10 - Cook Out. #11 has me on the horns of a dilemma.

    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...

    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....

    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...

    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.

    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!
