'What hath inglory done for us?' he cried at the top of his lungs, 'Nowt but made vices of us,' he continued to rapturous applause, 'I shall not be a doormat, terrified of a master I don't want' the cheering lessened as he moved onto a more boring subject, that of the minisub stances of world governments. Realising he had lost the crowd he changed to another, 'MEntity mapping is the new thing?' he queried and was greeted with silence, 'err...ar...TICLE informed education maybe?', once more nothing, he was panicking now, 'how about...' a sob 'jecta? No? Well in that case I give up' raucous applause followed much to his disappointment, and didn't finish until he was out of the building.

Find thing and 6 synonyms smile

(apologies for how terrible it is...I couldn't really think of anything!)

'No more to travel to Aisa, idyllic as it is' he _ _ _ _

On the map utopianists are also found in Mozambique, capital city of which is _ _ _ _ _ _

'_ _ _ _ _ _ _ is a philosophical concept that refers to liberty and is often referred to by setting slaves free DOMINIC!' the teacher shouted at the unruly pupil.

My old English teacher used to give us these...the _'s tell of the missing word in the sentence (can be anywhere in the sentence), which can be found in the words of the question/sentence (The question ones tended to be very difficult as you had to know the answer before you could look for the word...). Feel free to answer these easy ones instead of the rather rubbish paragraph I posted earlier.

Oh...I should have got that blush

re 'white spoiler' there is another way which I'll try now...

Click to reveal..
using the 'S' strike through key.....I've been wanting to do this for a while too LOL


yeh....it works.

and bexter...re onnickler.....they are hard to do, I try and fail to get any sensible sentence, let alone a paragraph. Maybe there is a formula we don't know about yet.

Edit Reason: it works!

Sorry. Busy. Crunch time. The electronic record takes twice as long to work with as the old paper one did, and our annual Messiah performance goes up on Saturday, rehearsals all week...no time to spare. The sponsoring body is named Music Worcester, a relatively large organization, but I'm afraid it's going to produce a small audience this year.

You did right to continue on without me. (But if you search, and eliminate all the extraneous stuff, I did squeeze in a very primitive onnicle here.)

Good luck with the Messiah on Saturday, wofa, though it sounds as if you are putting much more into the performance than you expect to get appreciated by the audience...still if only one person is in rapture, your work is done.

Maybe you could upload a video onto you tube and we all could hear it.

bexter did solve your puzzle whistle if you check back a bit.

I don't think that'll be possible, unfortunately. Union rules prohibit even our getting a CD of it. Except for a moderate fee, of course, which Music Worcester declines to fork over, in these tight times. But Robert Honeysucker (Bass) at rehearsal last night sounded as though he could have raised the dead with his Trumpet ! (And that wouldn't come across on a video anyway, I fear...)
