    Keyword

    Here are four lists of 3 words each. There is one word that could be added to all four lists; what is it (and why)?

    1. side, view, salt
    2. slide, lubber, line
    3. ball, work, income
    4. mail, valuation, bony
    Waggers
    If at first you do succeed, you've probably missed something.

    <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> Excellent work, both. So now all that remains to find is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">a word that can come after "land", "sea", "net" and "e" to give new words or phrases...</span hide>

    Never mind having the heart to say anything- he's got highly-trained attack gerbils, and you quickly learn not to cross a man with killer rodents.
