    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Am I assuming that as Vally is spelt wrong, the names are hidden in the text.

    If so,I reckon one of them was called Keran</span hide>

    Find the Names!

    A wagon maker and a farmer met in the valley on Christmas day. It was a good time to rest as their friend lived in a new town built upon a great hill of stone which they still had to climb. They wanted to give her a little bear as a gift.

    What is the names of the wagon maker, the farmer, the friend, the little bear and the town?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Find the Names!

    Sorry Jezza. Your assumption is incorrect.

    PS: I edited the mistake so it is now correctly spelt! (Tx)

    You must be on the right track Bandido. Although you only got one correct, I must congratulate you!!! The little bear now has a name!

    PS: Who said she's little...she may be a BIIIG mama too!

    PPS: Maybe you guys should start asking Bandido how he is scoring all the points! (He obviously has a way of finding the names!!!)

    Re: Find the Names!

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Ursa Major, perhaps better than any other group of stars, shows that just about any shape one wants to imagine can be assigned to the constellation--a plow, wagon, coffin, bear, or even a reindeer, as the people of Lapland imagined the constellation.

    I thought Ursula (little bear) and Ursa major (Big Bear) hence Goldilocks </span hide>

    Or am I looking for an alternative which I KNOW you like <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>
