    Nice start Tim.

    We'll say that 1, 3, 6, 9 and 11 are all solved correctly. We'll call 5 a maybe, but there is a more common-word answer. And then we'll add 2 back to the heap of unsolved.

    Re: A Quickie Or 13!

    Sorry for the delay in responding to everyone's responses....

    Tim has correctly solved 1, 3, 6, 9 and 11.
    Tony has correctly solved 2, 5 and 13. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>The actual answer for #2 was "Firing On All Cylinders", but Tony's answer works for me!</font color=yellow></span hi>
    Becky has correctly solved 4, 8, 10 and 12.

    The lone remaining unanswered problem is #7.
