Take your time - I'll be off line until next Thursday. I'll see everybody then.

The third time is a charm, the three pots of gold on a slot machine wheel makes a jackpot, but airplane crashes and train wrecks come in threes too. Gestalt psychologists say our penchant for threes is our attempt to order a chaotic Universe, but maybe we just like things in "threes". I can think of ten or so trios of entertainers I like. Two can be found above, can you find them?

AUGH--I got one, but canNOT find the other! I found something I was suspicious about, and even cheated by trying Google, but it didn't help. And, I'm glad you got Beck's latest; I wouldn't have: I've never heard of DOLORES O'REARDON AND THE CRANBERRIES.

Not me, Jackie, I have never heard of Delores Oreardon and the Cranberries either, I simply uncrypted it from Beck's arrangement. Google finds a Delores O'riordan and some Cranberries so maybe Beck just disremembered her name. Maybe he was ashamed and that is why he left town. smile

Now here's a hint to decode my cryptonym:

The two groups of threes entertain at opposite ends of the entertainment spectrum. One represents the epitome of musical control and order. The other represents the ultimate in disorder and mayhem of man-so-un-kind. laugh

I certainly disremembered it - my badness. And I can't even figure out one of your darned trios, but my mind is elsewhere.

Ah, Beck, if your mind is elsewhere it has reasons for being there so follow it.

THE THREE TENORS and THE THREE STOOGES

The third time is a charm, the three pots of gold on a slot machine wheel makes a jackpot, but airplane crashes and train wrecks come in threes too.

With or without the Swede; Theyer, Dahlgren, and Smith make a good defensive line. If the Swede is put back on defense, it will be good for the team, but I kind of like the idea of the other three having to play without him.

A well-known adventurer and a famous craft that bore him.
