Like me, you need better light, or better glasses.
I agonised over the clue for hours, put it aside, came back to it next day and realised it was ALIMENT, not AILMENT.

It is so much fun - if you don't tear your hair out! Laughing

Hi Tuesday

Definitely not a gremlin!!

Encarta Concise Dictionasry states:

ALIMENT = something that feeds, sustains, or supports something else.

ALIMENTARY = 1. relating to food orf nutrition. 2. providing nourishment, sustenance, support, or maintenance.

Convinced? Smile

Hi solipsister. I stopped when my vocabulary level reached 45, didn't look how many grains I donated but I do know all my answers were correct up to that point! Not boasting. Smile
