Excellent puzzle, Dubs.

And no point to them if they're not tricky.

Ah. Thanks Sab.

There's always that one with lots of Dalmatian puppies if you fancy a challenge.

I've bought another fucking bike. What's wrong with me?

Dubris - 16 Aug 2021 19:47:51 (#34 of 2017)

Too many legs?

HouseOfLametta - 16 Aug 2021 20:48:50 (#35 of 2017)

Possibly. It wouldn't be so bad if occasionally sold one.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 20:49:55 (#36 of 2017)

Don’t worry. I’ve bought another sewing machine.

HouseOfLametta - 16 Aug 2021 20:50:47 (#37 of 2017)

You see, I fancy a sewing machine.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 20:53:05 (#38 of 2017)

Sadly my old one is going to my sister - else it could have been yours.

If you have the same approach to sewing machines as you do bikes, Neems Is a very useful resource!

'Celebrity' Masterchef. I know one of these people.

It's all glamour and elegant chic outside London's glittering Warren St Station.

A red faced man with an unctuous drunken sheen on him accosts a bystander trying to get a bus from the stop which red-faced man and his merry companions have colonised.

"Hey! Do you know who Keith Haring is? Eh? Well he lived UNDER A BRIDGE. You wanna educate yourself."

Ginmonkey - 16 Aug 2021 21:07:56 (#42 of 2017)

Keith Haring was a troll? That's a hot take

FleurDuMal - 16 Aug 2021 21:07:57 (#43 of 2017)

Hope you’re OK, Holly - labyrinthitis is a bastard.

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 21:09:44 (#44 of 2017)

I was near Warren Street today - no obvious signs of Keith Haring, alas.

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 21:11:44 (#45 of 2017)

Aha! Melanie Sykes was the Boddington woman. She looks rather splendid.

Damn, sorry to hear that Holly - hope your're better soon.

Except when the question is "What was the NHS modelled on"?

And the answer is the GWR health facilities in Swindon.

After politician and NHS champion Aneurin Bevan visited the facilities, he said: “There it was, a complete health service. All we had to do was to expand it to embrace the whole country.”

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 21:19:20 (#48 of 2017)

Well I didn't know that!

Policywatcher - 16 Aug 2021 20:25:00 (#49 of 2017)

Or "Where was the UK's first lending library".

(Not Manchester, which was two years later, but usually gets the credit because Manchester was the first open to the general public, not just employees and familes of a single organisation - again the GWR)
