234d Portugese man-of war, is not actually a jellyfish. Nothing else fits. Is this a problem for anyone else? please

@Kathy Dreyer,
Do you have the # of letters, and any letters you've already gotten? Lots of us like to help but we don't get the magazines. Thanks.

@Kathy Dreyer,
Hi
You are correct, it is a siphonophore, but for lovatt's cruciverbalists, jellyfish will fit the grid.
Good luck
James

@Dutchy,
Good Morning/Afternoon Dutchy
Have you received Colossus 137?
In the UK it is 239. Have had a dip into The Baffler. Tricky as ever, but keeps the little grey cells active.

Hi james the collossus 137 doesn't come out down under until 3-11-11 I'm not absolutley but I think U.K. 239 might be the same as our 136 post one of your baffler clue's and we will soon find out. philcottie

Hi James.

Anxiously awaiting the Colossus 137 as I have no puzzles on hand at the moment. Sad

Cheers
Dutchy.

@philcottie,
It will probably be later than that because I let my subscription with Lovatts lapse. A firm that can't deliver on time is not worth subscribing to. My friends Interstate usually got their magazines at least a week but often 10 days before meI I've written to Lovatts about that but all they said was, deliveries of the magazines are out of their hands. I now buy my copies of the shelves.
