Hi,

while channel surfing the other morning I found myself looking at this quiz on a 'pay to play' which had me hooked enough to see what I could come up with

Using the following list of Letters, come up with as many car truck brands as possible. Letters can be used more than once.


U I F N
R L C B
H O K J
G A D M
T S Z E



I.e. Ford, Mazda

No prizes for the most or best answer, but then I am not charging you $5.50 per 30 seconds to be put on hold because there just sooo many other people playing or paying for a presenter that is trying hard to sound interested while wondering to herself if this will be the peak of her television career. :)

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Hi,

the six letters missing in the table are P Q V W X Y.

Morris, there are a few on your list that aren't allowed. :)

Gryphon,
Say Hello to Graham and Shirley and your Auntie in Pakenham for me.

I can't be bothered checking letters. I just listed trucks I know of. Does that mean I am not allowed to, as Swishy says, "Take a wee sip from my own fridge"?
Oh, well! such is life. (too cold for beer, am into red wine at the moment)

Since thought of a few more names. Will list 'em when I have nothing better to do.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Wot? nobody commented on my used of the word "infernal"? I did it deliberately, it is only one letter away from the correct word.

Does that mean that nobody reads this?
