Excellent. Easy but fun, though I'm not so sure how easy it would have been without the hints.

I had trouble with char/m, but the rest were fairly simple. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks.

Very easy, but enjoyable. I didn't need the hints and didn't even notice until after I solved all of them that the title itself is a hint.

Another great teaser Marc. Got them all, pretty easy but lots of fun.

Gayle - though I know the message was not intended for me and I don't have a clue where "Grand Blanc" is, I do in fact live very close. Grand Blanc translates as "Great White", which is of course how Canada is known - "The Great White North".

*And yes I know it could also be translated as "Big White". (I'm after all Canadian - I speak French)

Had fun thought it was very easy but not that easy that it didn't make my brain work.

Fun! After I saw the hint, it was easy.

Had to come back to number 1 and think about it some more before I figured it out. - Got the rest right off! Really fun teaser!
