@Tassiebird,
Why buy a new dictionary when you have the internet?

@Francis,
I know, good point. However, it didn't come up on my searches. I use 'allwords.com' a lot but find, quite often, that it doesn't have all words! I am currently searching for 160d Caesar's sentries, but to no avail. Think I need more practice on where to look.

The problem is I don't have any Stinker.

@Francis,
Ok, ta. I've done most of the Stinker, only a few to do. 160d Caesar's sentries - I have Pre-t-r--n Guard.
Also, 207a Galore. I have the answer as 'aplenty' but the 'e' doesn't fit with 188d Cow shed, which I originally had as 'barn', now 'ba-e'.
I usually manage to finish these crosswords without too much bother, but this one is a real stinker! Thanks for your help.

There is a letter missing but once you sent me in the right direction, praetorian fits. Thanks a bunch.

@Izzie,
I'm often on travels, Izzie.

But these trips are of a professional nature, I don't have time for games.

Well, not all games.. Twisted Evil

@Francis,
I'm sure you'll find time to, ahem, smell the roses, Francis. Not sure about hospitality though. The people are revolting!

Well, from my experience, they are nice people, a bit stubborn, perhaps...
