Morning everyone!

Thanks to BD for stepping in last week. Afraid as I am working today, it’s going to be a brief blog.

A very agreeable challenge today which contained one or two little stings in the tail. The four long answers should give a foothold into the puzzle and help you on your way. Continue reading “DT 29479 (Hints)”
