I think PEACH goes with You doing joints...

Can't quite work out how the PINEAPPLE one works, and definitely now can't fit SLOE in! The only thing I did wonder was if he'd made an error, so it was 3. AS LO End behold rather than Lo and behold? :? Most of the others seem to work pretty well though.

Just wondered if anyone might be interested in this https://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/see-an ... YPEptsTHYo

It's free tickets - I've just booked to go in a couple of weeks with Dibble.

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
All of my puzzles are simple and obvious. For certain values of "simple" and "obvious".

It's an online escape room game - you have to solve puzzles in each room to get into the next room

I've been having a look, and it's not too hard, and quite clever. I've got to the end of chapter two so far.

Well a little hint first. They are actuaries, so it's maths! (Very easy maths! :lol: )
