  • Hi Carol

    I'm afraid that I'm the one who's missed something - namely, Maybrick! My knowledge of him is vanishingly small - but I do like puzzles.

      Hi Robert!
      I love puzzles too. I'm with you - I miss Maybrick and 'his' Diary. Of course, there is still the mystery over whether Maybrick was murdered or just died 'naturally' from arsenical poisoning.
      Hope you're having better weather than we are. It's really wet, miserable and autumny here in Gothenburg!

      • Carol, is Gothenburg the same as Goteburg? There was a chess variation in the Sicilian Defence named after Goteburg.

        • Hello Robert

          Gothenburg, in Scandinavian is variously spelt, and named G°teborg. The "°" or in Swedish the o with 2 dots over(I haven't got the correect keyboard) is o and e.. sounding like the "er" in Gershwin, with a flat sounding "r". I think Carol will confirm this too.

          best wishes

          • Copenhagen is pronounced Copen-harn by the locals.

                I can confirm this, Phil! Gothenburg is the English version of what is known as G÷teborg to us locals.

                  Why thankyou, Victoria

                  Might I say that I've lived in London for 45 years (all my adult life) and have never happened to meet an Australian person that I didn't like.

                  • Thanks all. The Goteburg variation is a very dangerous variation to play as black.

                      Hello to one and all ..

                      I am wondering if anyone here can tell me of the current whereabouts, as in
                      who has current ownership of the watch associated with the fake
                      JTR diary.

                      Many thanks.

                      • I believe the Watch is now in the possession of the president of the Flat Earth society,and currently displayed at the Leonardo Da vinci appreciation societys HQ in Madrid.
