14. Guadalajara
15. Somalia
16. Movies: 2004 De-Lovely with Kevin Kline (don’t know the other)
20. John McVie (you know who says he was not on the first recording but thereafter)

Interim report

25..A winner following Arab Spring.

24..The "unusual" part is confined to football, NCor.

23..Well, its fame is perhaps confined to Boneyarders, true. Its city is Holly Springs. The state?

Carry on.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Wire Chief (again).

14..Guadalajara fits the question. Thanks to geordi & NCor.

15..The same duo with Somalia.

16..Takes a tandem. ED4(certain, this time) with Cary Grant; NCor with Kevin Kline.

17..Empanada, zorro & JR with mouths a'waterin'.

18..Who ees dis meestery Quedash? Well, welcome with your Jeff Demps entry.

19..Coral sea is correct, VTC as resident WW2 historian.

20..Wow, that Meyers not only gets to first bass, but hits a homer with his detail. Three others.

21..Geordi has always been kosher in my book.

22..Well, geordi they got the tusks anyway, and it may have been a mammoth, but what the heck,
you still stand alone.

23..Mississippi

24..NCor has Tony Gonzalez. What's unusual is that tight ends just NEVER get oodles of catches.

25..Morocco had an election last week, and Mr. Benkirane is head of the party that did best.

It's getting tougher to stay on page one of the board with all the chatter going on.
