Another fun one Jazz! A couple of those were a little challenging, but fun to figure out. One of the first of yours I've gotten without any hints!

Thanks guys. Much appreciated!

IMURRAY: Thank you for your positive comments. They are appreciated too. I have the same amount of time as you...24 hours...for me, Braingle is a hobby and so, enjoy writing teasers (some good - some not so good).

Great teaser Jazz. I struggled on some, though I'm usually quick on word teasers. Thanks for making me work

Great teaser, I love the ones that are word knowledge based. I got FUEL and ELAM (part of babylon/iran) for the first one. I'm so glad Lmurray liked this one...so it seems we can please 'all the people some of the time' and 'some of the people all of the time'.

Kitty I don't think ranch-cheese works as you need an extra 'e' or you would get:

ran|ch - ch|ese
ran|ge - ge|ese

Hope that makes sense, nice teaser.

Jazz, as usual you have provided us with a very good teaser. Thank you . It's like having our own personal puzzle-maker.

I got most of them (yay me!), but I got ranch/cheese for some strange reason. lol I also can't believe I couldn't figure out budge/gender, even though the second of the 2 had been on my mind for a long time. lol

I appreciated the greater number of words to work on. It's funner with a lot to solve rather than just 4 or 5.

Jazz, I agree with one of the above posters. We have our own puzzle maker, and he certainly is a good one. These are so much fun even Imurray likes them. Good job.

Another great one for Jazz!

Apr 27, 2007

This was fun. Took some time to think them through.
For those who got "ranch/cheese" look closer, there's only one 'e' not 2 (ese not eese).
Keep these coming!

Thanks alot for the nice comments. I do appreciate them. I'm not sure about the 'personal puzzlemaker' , but it's nice to know I giving some of you a brighter day.

While working on this, I also considered cheese, but noticed the missing 'e' ... and budda, but knew it started with 'bh'. I think there were a few more that 'almost' worked... I was starting to wonder if there were errors in the teaser and maybe I was actually right! Haha, but no, of course not, and I figured them out eventually. And it was fun! I like it when I have to work at the teaser a bit, and I especially like it when I can get it after doing so.

I really like these and find them challenging.

I'm ashamed of myself
I quit before I got them all!
Thanks for a good one, jazz!

This was really fun! I got them all except #5 in spite of trying many words on both ends. After I relunctantly gave up and checked the answer I thought, "Why didn't I think of that?" Thanks for a good teaser!

Very good. It just took too much time on some because it is late and my eyes are closing, but kept at it until the last two. Yawn!

Fairly easy, which was good for my brain today.
