  1. Bingo! At last succeeded in cracking a Sunnet puzzle!! When I came to NE corner I was left with 7dn clue. And the only pangram letter missing was 'x'. So I could easily get ICEBOX. Thoroughly enjoyed solving. A wonderfful crossie. Thank you Sunnet. :-)))

  4. Happy to have samosas Sunnet. Thank you. Very nice clues. Bitterness is noun whereas Acidly is adverb. Is it in order?

  5. Sorry Col. Your mention of 'daily' in the header did not register in my mind. I somehow took it as we expect a Pangram usually from Ramesh.
