      No to the second - points mean bugger-all, actually.

  10. A shower head! Pffft.. I have no idea... Ok, I have no idea who Jacqueline is but if Mise says she's nice, I'm with her.

    1. I'm deducting a point from you for agreeing with Mise. And no, it's not.

  11. An old tin can with holes punched in the bottom with a fork. You use it for your cigarette butts outside your workshop....holes are to let the rain water out so it doesn't get soupy.

    The points are so we can get a false sense of our intelligence.

  14. At first glance it looked like someone trying to bake cookies (biscuits) on a rusted metal pan or lid.

    I'll say it's the underside of a metal container with square holes punched so that stuff can drip out. Maybe to strain bits out of liquid of some sort? I've done similar things when repotting in homemade containers,but the discolouration around each hole leads me to think it wasn't water, but something that clung before letting go.

    The reason for points? To make us feel clever.

    Although i haven't won any thus far, so i'd hate to think my lack of points demonstrates a lack of intelligence on my part.

    1. Well to start, there is no reason for points, but everyone loves them (for whatever reason) so I hand them out like sweeties. You have 10, because you have a cheeky face. You are almost right as well.

  18. I've got it ! A template for your stone carving.

    BTW...how many guesses do we get?

  19. Dang! I wasn't fast enough. I think that Razmataz might be right although at first look I thought that it looked like sushi spiked with licorice.

    I think that I should get the five points for being the 'most bummed out at not having been first' and another 3/4 point for the explanation that a point puts one way ahead of the other flotsam and jetsam of blogland and clearly marks one as superior!

    Jaqueline should have a point deducted for being too nice.

    1. I agree. 2 points deducted from Jacqueline.

    1. Ok, you win. It is - as you suggest - an up-turned oil drum with holes punched in it to allow the burning of rubbish, etc. (as if the rest of you didn't know that...). I was about to give a clue involving Johnny Morris and hot-chestnuts, but this would have been for UK residents over the age of 60 in any case.

      I'll send your five points under plain cover as soon as I can get to the post office.

      Bad luck to the rest of you, but there's always next time!
