but a BLEAT LORE one, I hope.

I've only seen Valkyrie, a mythological figure always capitalised, in the context of Wagner or Bullfinch.

It's hard to vote by Google (if that's worth anything), since the Net is mostly case-insensitive. Having said that, I note that of the first sixty g-hits, fifty-nine are capitalized; the lone exception is Wikipedia, whose authoritative stature has been impugned by some.

Re: ASIA BOND -- if alabater* is white, What color/mineral would be the furthest from that?

[Edit: That's "alabaster," of course. Some days I just can't type worth a durn. /Edit]

TREE NARC is entrance, he said, hypnotized.

I got hung up on the comma in MC TIME, HARPO, thinking there had to be a comma in the answer (and also the MC part, thinking there had to be a "hammer." And if that were true, I should have put a period in my clue. I also should have said "2 words" sorry.

My sister lives near there; I've actually eaten lunch on Mt. Ruapehu. It's just south of Tongariro and Ngauruhoe. The three volcanoes line up in a spectacular row in the middle of a desert plain. Every one of them has so many vowels that it's difficult to make anagrams out of them at all!

Hmm...well, TE LEAVES is "elevates" but you want something with one more A...

And ID READINGS can be made into one word (British spelling, if you must)

EDIT: No it can't, Hab, you dummy! You meant to write GA READINGS

Where's the simplicity of all this?? I'm very confused.

I still can't solve TEA LEAVES.

And now I should solve GA READINGS?

Is it:

I'm lost too! I can make nothing of either ID READINGS or TEA LEAVES. Confused

I messed up on Tea Leaves--I meant "elevates," but it does have an extra "a." So I withdraw that one.

I can't solve GR Readings either--for a sec, I thought AGGRANDISE, but missing an "a" and too many "r"s.

Do we have to solve it before we admit it's just

And I'm the one who misspelled it, substituting GR for GA. My bad. Just now I have to attend to other things, so I'll try another one later.
