Last week, I described in detail my sickly childhood and, in truth, ailments have followed me throughout my adult life. Not least is my affair with hay fever, from which I have suffered for over 40 years. In recent years, it has been terrible and this is not an affliction you want when your main hobby is Botany!

Stepping back into the past for the moment: I passed my required O-levels and A-levels and was the first in my family to go up to university. I went to London to study Dentistry, which took about four and a half years to graduate suitably qualified. It was hard work, but I managed to play hard too -- especially getting used to develop the study pattern of drinking a few pints and then burning the midnight oil.

It proved to be also an education in meeting people from other walks of life and being introduced to different experiences. My parents would never listen to classical music or spend a night at the theatre. It fell to my room-mate to introduce me to King Crimson and Wishbone Ash, as well as Beethoven and Vivaldi. I also had some of my first theatrical outings (albeit up in the Gods) which I have continued to this very day. To date, I normally see about a hundred productions per year.

Whilst I was in London, I also learned to play Squash, a sport that I continued into my 40’s (until a knee cartilage gave way). As a boy, I hated sports and still have no fondness for it today -- other than to follow the occasional Tennis (strictly as a spectator). Being in London at the same time as the IRA bombings and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee brought added frisson.

Once I qualified, I opted to work in hospitals for a couple of years gaining experience in maxillofacial surgery, as well as the usual removal of wisdom teeth, etc. (I sympathise with seekeerz, who recently had to have a tooth extracted!). I eventually moved to East Anglia and began working in Ipswich. One memorable event was when I was enlisted to be on call when they won the FA Cup in 1978. However, it turned out to be a fantastic night of celebrations and I had no injuries to attend to.

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I will follow the usual rule on word length as introduced by crofter. Each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!

Each of the selected link words may go in front or behind my challenge word! The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when crofter will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My second set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.
Oh NO, not teeth, please Not teeth !!!
Is Ulysses going to try and extract dental words from us?..ouch
Maybe he'll be a sport and squash that one!
Boom Boom !! pauline
we'll all be Filling in our guesses soon...
Perhaps my email will turn out to be a rehearsal, steff :-)
I'm sure it will be something to get our teeth into, anyway. Dentist's always try to distract you with music so perhaps we'll have a musical interlude.
