Currently Tuesday does not appear to have a regular setter, although Shamus usually features on alternate weeks. Until Autumn 2010 the other slot featured Ray T most of the time.

Good morning everyone from a bright and sunny day in my part of Shropshire. Not exactly a R&W but not far off it. I actually quite enjoyed it, but after doing the review I’ve knocked half a star off due the ‘bittiness’ of it all (take the ‘a’ …… abbreviation….etc).… Read More

Good Morning from what is starting to be a bit of a hot day here in Shropshire. Nothing in the puzzle today that will send the horses galloping off to the hills but still quite enjoyable (apart from a couple of clues).… Read More

Good morning from an unhappy Shropshire bunny. If anything could go wrong this morning – it did. I won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say I’m probably not in the right frame of mind to adjust BD’s star rating today as I may be doing the setter an injustice [ I have adjusted it.… Read More

Welcome from a quite muggy Shropshire. I hate to say it, but I didn’t really enjoy todays puzzle from our Tuesday Mr Ron – some of it just didn’t ‘feel’ right.… Read More

Good morning from a ‘non-scorchio’ Shropshire. The weather is back to its low 20’s and I, for one, am quite glad it has cooled down.

I don’t think that the puzzle today will hold many of you up as it was pretty much a R&W although the SE corner was my last in and edged me towards 2* territory.… Read More

Greetings from the wet/sunny/cold/muggy/hot/haily (it’s a word!) moors. Your usual Tuesday blogger is off on his holidays (with Mrs SL), somewhere or other. I think it involves a cottage, no internet and his car looking good, so I am in the chair.… Read More

Good morning from a dull, cold and windy Shropshire. I really enjoyed this puzzle today as it is full of clues that I enjoy solving and is definitely higher up in the difficulty level than the past few Tuesday’s.… Read More

Good Morning from an extremely muggy Shropshire. Today’s puzzle appears to me to be somewhat of a curate’s egg. I enjoyed the solve, but having completed the review I’m now not so sure.… Read More

Good Morning everyone from a central area of Shropshire which can’t decide what season it wants to be in. Apologies for being AWOL last Tuesday but a funeral I was attending was unexpectedly brought forward so thanks to BD for standing in.… Read More

ShropshireLad has been called away at short notice today.

I thought this was a workmanlike puzzle with, for me, no stand-out clues.

Please leave a comment telling us what you thought.… Read More
