Easy, but good fun. Might be better without the letter categorisation, though, to make it a little harder (if a little less organised). Thanks for the teaser!

I did not try either. The clues were a bit dense for me. I could have thought of easier ones for us stupid people.

Cool. For #1 I got core --> ore, because there is technically an outer and an inner core at the center of the Earth. Could that be another possible solution?

I enjoyed this one and then I realized I had done it before. I didn't remember it at all, so it was like a new one to me. Memory loss is fun !!!

I like fridge-ridge and I'd add 'stone-tone' to the last one.

Nice teaser; I very much enjoyed it. I had to give the most thought to number four - I kept wanting to start with the word "rise", but the right answer finally came to me! I look forward to more like this one.
