Wow, this one really is a stinker!
37a Chatting - I have Y?R?ING (I think it should be yacking)
but have 13d Quip as EPIGRAM so that doesn't fit.
ALso, 81d Damps down, I have AS?UASES with
80a Sea fog/Scotland as HAAR
86a Wall bracket light as SCONCE
94a Pristine as UNSPOILT
97a UK theatre school as RADA
104a Speculate as SEEMS
111a Fill with joy as ELATE
118a Diving gear as SCUBA
but 81d eludes me.
Could someone help me with these two?
to talk continuously about unimportant matters
The other one should be assuages.
At 81 d. I have, as Francis stated, assuages. 104a guess.
At 37a. I have yarning.
Hope these help.
Hi canoe3154 & Francis
Thank you for your answers.
With 37a Chatting, Yakking doesn't fit in because I have for
13d Quip EPIGRAM.
So, as canoe3154 suggests YARNING, this does fit in and does
What does anyone else think?
Hi again Tigiie,
Just to clarify. All my answers correspond to yours except for 104a at which I have GUESS. I too have EPIGRAM at 13d so thats what gives YARNING at 37a.
Hope this helps.
I agree with you that YARNING is the correct answer for
Thanks for 104a Guess, I changed that on my copy and
it all makes sense now.
Many thanks for your help.

Hi you guys. You have all been really helpful with your answers over the past who knows how long. Have finally decided to join up and actually ask for some help instead of just mine-sweeping for the ones I can't get.
So, could anybody help with 190a Fibre Plant. It's driving me nuts and I feel I must have gone horribly wrong somewhere as I have I*T*E and my brain cell just can't work it out. Would appreciate any help on offer. Thanks
You are right on track. The answer you need is ISTLE.
Good luck with your entry.
