    OK Bear - This time you get the choccy. With <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15> or without, it's your choice. You did that in fewer steps than I (<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> I didn't think of "caver"</span hide>)!

    As it's supposed to be a nocturnal answer, shouldn't that be:

    <table border=0><tr><td>#8 </td><td bgcolor="black"> <font color=black>AARDVARKS</font color=black> </td></table>

    Hey Paul:
    This puzzle is one of three on the page that I didn't make up myself. I'm not saying your answer is incorrect; just saying it doesn't match up with the answer in the back of the book. So for now, I'll leave this one open for further attempts. I'll post the "book solution" in a few days. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    05) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">24</span hide> If the rule is what I think it is, I don't understand the numbers on the right hand side.

There is a rule that works. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
