Lemme tickle allyuh brain

I'm parking this thread up front in the queue, pending a revival of quizzes. No guarantee that I will devote as much time as before, but it will move forward. It's a pity we lost Anjali and Riya, our knowledgeable and enthusiastic stalwarts. 

Dem boys seh old firewood don't tek laang fo spark. But, with no response after 22 hours, it seems that this old thread is like waterlogged charcoal. Which saves me from bothering with research and framing questions. TA-TA!!
