Sobernow has beaten me to all the ones I knew this week. Sad to see no clergy questions, Fionn!
I don't suppose the Hollywood couple is Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward...

Our server was down all last night so couldn't post - didn't know what to do with myself! Ended up clearing out my email Inbox hoping it would get fixed so I could go onto Mumsnet, very sad! Definitely addicted.
Is anyone going to guess 14 before I post the answers?

Fionn Fri 26-Jul-02 07:38:33

soothepoo, you clever thing! I spent ages with the letters in a circle but only tried combinations that began with a consonant. (None of them made words. Funny, that!)
