Must be watching too much racing from Cheltenham. I fell at the last fence.

I got vowels equals 30 then (mysteriously) decided that consonants were 100.

There was a time when that wouldn't have happened. :sad:

I fell at the first and it proves the adage for data, rubbish in, rubbish out. :extrawink:

Tripps, I cannot fault your argument in that Stern is an artist but which Stern do you mean? The majority are very new or less well known artists. #2 anagram has a long list of known paintings and besides its the one given in the card answers. I'll put it to the stewards if you like.

China has the full answer but we await the stewards inquiry on whether Tripps was correct in offering up novice rider in a Gold Plate race.
I've nominated Wendy as our resident art expert Ref On 'Hans Holbein,23 june 2013. A good game for learning your old masters is on the "Free Rice" website. I love the word game, but you can also earn a few grains of rice by guessing the artist...
