Let's have only one puzzle at the time. The individual who came up with the answer is supposed at the same time come up with the new puzzle/jumbled letters. That way the original poster doesn't need to keep checking back. Anyone with me?

I don't know what is the point of posting a "word" that can't be found even in a Longman's dictionary? I do but I am not going to go there.

Shyam, remember the rule?
"The individual who came up with the answer is supposed at the same time come up with the new puzzle/jumbled letters"
