    1. My take-
      (Natural gas) compounded and sugar (process for letter picking) is deleted.

      Delete
    2. I reasoned since it's incognito:
      Process:anind
      Compound: to indicate the two seprate words are used.
      Without: deletion of (sugar).

      Remember the agitated man discussion.

  6. ONCE AGAIN the NEW YORKER, a BANKER with LONG HAIR LOSES his balance.

    He has received a proposal from CLEOPATRA, a woman with no PARALLEL.

    He is ALL AT SEA as the woman turns out to be of middle age, an ordinary person from NATAL and not what he imagined.

    2. The OLDMAN got the COUNTY wrong and the NEWER AFRIKANER HOODWINKS him. He needs a REMAP of his EARNS and SALVAGES. Thank God they are per ANNUM and not like the LOSES of CASHCROPs these days.
