  • We agree on 40 winners from the first 100 Larry.
  • I nominate #140 as the toughest nut we've cracked. It's a stinker of the highest order. I lost count of the time I spent on it. I'll have to check my list. Currently saying 37%. Will do it tomorrow. EDIT .... Couldn't wait. Make it 41 now !!!! This …
  • That's a great advert Ken. Thanks. It dawned on me that they have been running one here but nowhere near as clever. It features a woman who loses her phone in a pub. The message was that it would be perfectly safe nomatter which customer in the pub …
  • Ha! The root problem with everything these days is that it is well nigh impossible to talk to anyone. We are fobbed off with customer "service" computer programs and yards of FAQ's that are intended to cope with every possible combination of proble…
  • Ken, It appears to me that the two American companies, Macafee and Microsoft, conspired to ensure that their products were essential to getting the laptop to function properly. By selecting Google as the default browser I breached a "security protoc…
  • Larry, my limited pgs activity today has yielded #81 as a new winner.
  • I'm stressed out of my skull Ken. Someone destroyed yet another laptop. She was adamant that it could be repaired but the guy at the shop said it would cost so much to fix, even if he could obtain the required parts, that getting a new one was the b…
  • I can't see me having any free time today at all. Another cay from hell unfolding.
  • I've had the day from hell. Very little pgs time. Won 145 and 149.
  • 136,137,147,148 are winners I've not mentioned previously. It looks like we could have missed a few winners in our haste. I am going to go back through my LIST and see if I can pick off a few mnore. Currentl 55 winners from150 = 36.67%. 40% would be…
  • I really will have to create a list. I just played and won #106 again. Playing no more tonight. It's about 11pm and I've a busy day ahead of m tomorrow. Busier now than I was when I had a job. :bz Self inflicted injuries.
  • Add #106 and #108 to your list. I've been far too tired to play PGS properly of late. That's all of the heavy work completed now so I'm expecting to up my win rate.
  • Good job Larry. I have played a few higher ones (up to 133). I could have put more effort into some of them.Despite that my winners are 101, 103, 104, 112, 120, 121,126 and 129.
  • Marcia, you'll be pleased to learn that 12 - 33 are winnable too. I've been playing one or two every day. It's a welcome change from the types of games I normally play. How are you getting on?
  • Yes we've been through it several times Ken. I couldn't believe it when you mentioned your screensaver settings. Mine kicks in after just 10 minutes. I have it linked to a folder containing hundreds of "Garden" photos. After it goes to screensaver t…
  • "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." William Shajespeare.. There are always people conspiring to unseat the likes of D.T. The irony is that if they succeed and take power themselves there will be others conspiring against them immediately. Mor…
  • Evidence of a symbiotic connection? :)) Finally, as I predicted, I have found an instance of an illegal 3-card move from reserve into the tableau. 2-card ones appear fairly often. What odds a 4-card or higher? Also attaching a partial for a game t…
  • Clearly another example of fake news Ken. Curious that (arguably) the two most powerful men on the planet, Trump and Putin experience this phenomenon all of the time. Both try to discredit all of the proof and evidence that is laid at their door wit…
  • Did Mike have a leak somewhere inappropriate? Is that it?
  • " Google Translate" was as baffled as me by both of those posts. This is a genuine archaic Scottish word for you to add to your vocabulary ........ "betrump". It means "to cheat". This is not fake news. Practically everything else is though. ;))
  • #10 is winnable Paul. Difficult to get a column emptied.
  • #70 has obliged. Time to hit the hay.
  • Sorry Larry. I hadn't played any abouve 50 until I saw your post. Trying to catch up now. Been mega busy in the garden so pgs time has been drastically curtailed.
  • If you are easily offended give this one a miss. His material is outrageously funny.
  • I can't wait for the cold weather to arrive. Funny old world isn't it? No idea what kind of tree I'm tackling. It's ridiculously tough. I thought I'd make life easier for myself and drill some 8mm holes in it. A brand new wood drill-bit in a mains o…
  • It's uncomfortably hot here too Ken, and we're not used to it. I'm busy felling the trunks of our two largest conifers. I removed 7 smaller ones last week. They were about 9x4x4 feet. The two I'm working on today were much bigger. One has two trunks…
  • Plink. Penny has dropped. Attaching my solution for LSS #1. Working on auto pilot here.
  • Now it's me who's confused. Both uploaded solutions are for Left Side Story #7. Perhaps you're awake but your brain is in deep slumber. :)
  • Too much on my mind obviously. A daunting task or two in front of me today. Attaching the correct solution. The solutions were right beside one another on my desktop. I was up before 6am having had a rubbish sleep for about 3 hours. I did think it w…
