    peck: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">it's the only one that ends with a double consonant</span hide>
    rod: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">all the others have more than three letters</span hide>
    feed: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">it's the only one I have done today</span hide>
    grain: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">it's the only one with a type of weather concealed</span hide>
    gill: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">it's the only one with two different pronounciations with different meanings</span hide>

    If you are picking peck as <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">the only one that ends with a double consonant</span hide> then why not <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">grain - the only one that starts with a double consonant</span hide>

    Well done Stuart and Tony:
    What I was after is GRAIN - It is the only one which starts with two consonants! You could also see from the reverse!
