    Oooh a new gem of a word!: “Spring cleaning is in the air… time to clear out all the dusty GIMCRACK from the shelves”

    What a great idea! Tis could be addictive but at least someone would benefit by the hours I could spend on this.

    I like to HOBNOB with people like Charlotte who like words and word gmes.

    You’re right it’s addictive. I got up to 130 grains, but then they hit me with a word that occurs only once, in other words a HAPAX.
