James, what was the number, usually ten or twelve, used to group commodities for measuring that rhymed with "baker"? I never figured that one out.
Quick! Come back to Crambo! I think you've won but I need more information. No fair just retiring from the entire world just to keep from leading the next game ;)
I agree. I am about that far myself. Good to know someone else is reading what I am. ;-)

Hi James,

Did you get the kindle edition of The Histories translated by Macaulay? If you did, have you started it and what do you think of it so far?

Just curious...

James, when you guess at Crambo, you should provide a clue to your word rather than the word itself. Good game with "distill," by the way!
