    OK here's a bit of lexicographical fun for you to partake in, if you so wish. The idea is (once I kick it off) that each poster submits a word, but said word must be 'anagrammable' into another recognisable word. The next poster must work out and submit the anagram and then provide another 'anagrammable' word of his/her own choosing. For instance (keeping it simple), if I submit 'cat', then the anagram of that would be 'act' which the next poster submits. The solver of the 'cat' anagram then submits another word;, i.e. 'abet' which can be anagrammed to 'beat' etc. etc.

    Get the picture?

    I'll start of with one of my own

    'flue'

    Over to someone else to solve that one and provide another of their own to be solved.

    Spare.

    As for Newark, my girlfriend's mum lives there. I informed her of its anagram. For some reason she wasn't overly impressed.... ;)

    Escort (at least two other ways on this one)
