    Here is another brain teaser! And c'mon lets give ABC in GA a chance!


    Ol' Jay burst into the house during a winter storm. "Man, it's really coming down out there, but this stormy weather reminds me of a seven-letter word. Each time you remove one letter, you have another common word; remove another letter and you have another word. You don't even have to rearrange the letters. It works all the way down until you're left with one letter, which is also a word." What is the seven-letter word?

    : “Grow your own dope. Plant a liberal.”
    ” Obummercare, 20 percent of the time it works everytime.

    When she's done with that one tackle this:

    There is only one 10-letter word that can be formed using the top row of the keyboard (the QWER....row). What is it?

    If you can use a letter more than once it would be typewriter!

    The only constraints that were placed were ten letters and the QWERTY row so...you would be correct sir!

    Well, I am going to use it somehow tomorrow! The more I say it the more it sounds like a word!

    Why oh why did I check in to read tonight? AAAARGH! You are a beast pat45!

    Am up to my eyebrows in arranging a community party, phone calls, e-mails, permission for location, catering service, toilet , parking facilities etc.

    Okay ... so far have only figured out that either the first or the last letter of the word ... must be either an "a" or an "i" ... in order to stand alone as a word in the end. I could be wrong ... my brain is on "scramble" at the moment.

    Help me out here Marv!!!! Even 'though I love quizzes where you have to think rather than simply remember things ... you pumpkin, are the MENSA member in here, not me!

    Oops! Now you are on the spot!
