Wait! HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND! (forgive the pun). The eye patch, Steve, the damned eye patch! It's so bloody obvious! One eyed characters! I demand a refund! Or a prize! A pint will do!

Congratulations Mercuryg, a brilliant piece of deduction - eventually.

Now Merc', I can confirm your prize, now try not to get too excited.

You will fly to Paris next weekend and take part in the English - French bungee jumping finals. You will be taken to the top of the Eiffel Tower and pushed...er.. you will bungee jump off the summit with a haversack full of bowling balls on your back. I know, I know, you can't believe your luck and I bet you just can't wait to show those Frenchies what you are made of. Though they will probably find that out when you make contact with the Champs Elysees. Break a leg Merc - and probably a lot more as well.

NOW THEN CHAPS AND CHAPESSES.

DO YOU WANT MORE?

Well I can only speak for the chapesses amongst us but YES, YES, YES!!!!!

These are so infuriating but great fun at the same time.

I'm black and blue all over due to kicking myself about the last solution.

TIME-WASTING!!!!!

After the prize I got for you! The hours - nay - days and sleepless nights I put in to entertain you with a plethora of puzzles, a veritable cornucopia of clues and conundrums; scouring the internet for weeks on end, looking for pictures and images to post for your benefit so that Mercuryg can shine like a supernova in the Northumbrian sky; A Caesar crossing the Rubicon and marching into Rome at the head of his eyepatch legions. All this and you regard it as time-wasting!!!! Woe is me! Where's the sharp knife? The days I've gone without food; the nights I've burned the midnight oil to bring you gems of trivia; all this and it's regarded as a waste of time. Where's the asp in the basket of figs; unsheath my gladius so that I can fall upon my sword. Life has no meaning anymore. Just you wait, Mercuryg, I'll be the one packing your haversack with the bowling balls, and perchance there might just be a blacksmith's anvil in there as well.

Well that's enough of the drama queen, folks. Until tomorrow when I will waste your time with more cunning connections.

Adios, amigos, until our paths cross again.

You know what, I thought if anybody gets this it will be Mercuryg. Do you want to send me the answer through personal mail just to check? I thought this might be easy.

Cheers Merc.

If you send me your answer through personal mail I can confirm on site that you have got it.

Or you could just post the answer and claim fame and glory. (And get another super-duper prize.)

I'll leave it to you - I have other devious connections waiting.

You have just won a snowboarding holiday in the Sahara Desert.

Okay, no more mister nice guy - time for some skullduggery with my connections. It will take a while because I've got the workmen here at the moment. But watch this space.

Congrats Merc.

I'm going to need that passport renewed. Viv Stanshall was a true star, an utter madman. Sadly missed. Love the story of his trip to the tailors with Keith Moon.

OK, seeing as nobody else has had a crack I'm going to take a guess: is it Pierrot?

So what was the answer? My guess was they all played the part of the President of the US or they all played a part where they were the leaders of their country

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
