Morning all and welcome to another RayThursday.  It was a game of two halves for me.  I went through the across clues and only got four of them so I thought I might be in for a fair old struggle. … Read More

Morning all from a “Home Alone” pommers.  Pommette has gone to visit her mother so I’m left here to misbehave and blog another Friday puzzle. Don’t worry though, Deep Threat will be back next week.… Read More

Hi everyone.  As Deep Threat is on hols you’ll just have to put up with me doing a bit of deputising.  I have blogged on Friday before but as far as I can see the last one was 27th December 2013 so it’s a fair while since the Don and I locked horns. … Read More

Hola from the Vega Baja on a bright sunny morning.  I’ll stake my non-existent reputation as a setter spotter on this puzzle having nothing at all to do with RayT, even though it is his turn this week.  … Read More

Morning all and welcome to a RayThursday.  I don’t think you’ll find this puzzle too difficult but it’s a “proper” RayT with a few stretched synonyms, a bit of innuendo and Her Majesty on parade.… Read More
