    Can you <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">post the solution</span hide> for those who can't do it themselves.

    Like me sometimes <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    (I think it would be nice for all future puzzles too.....)

    Here we are:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> A) 7,8,5,5,3,4,?,? number of letters in January, February etc

    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] 6,6,7,9,?,? number of letters in Sunday,Monday etc

    </span hide>

    Of course that is my answer but if there are alternatives I would welcome them as I know I have upset a couple of people recently for being a pedant <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21>

    Has there ever been a puzzle that the lounge has never solved? ( <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>...maybe this is a puzzle in itself!!! )

    No solution to <post#=285354>post 285354</post#> has ever been posted. And I remember there was a fascinating puzzle about dominoes in 2002 that was never solved, but it is not available any more (the Puzzles forum had an expiration period of 60 or 90 days then.)
