  2. Liked red scot, no thanks!
    On the contrary loved the offerings
    Though the spa didn't have to be built
    Bumps anyway to the setter
    Except for the trade and trade union on the same plate!

  3. Today's CW given by Bruno is on little tougher one. Still enjoyed solving them. Some of the nicely clued are, " portal to the underworld?", "Royalty? No thanks", " a stiff back".
    With regards,
