Yes - it's the pop-up toaster.

No.

Just No. 7 to get, although I think it is very difficult. Certainly nobody at the quiz I spoke to last night had heard of it. I'll leave it open for a couple of hours (till I get home from work, basically), but if Hamlet or orlok want to have the next turn, please feel free.

OK, I don't think that anybody's going to get the last one. It was that massive worldwide hit, "The Boatniks".

So I think it's over to orlok or Hamlet for the next one please.

Good idea to revive - thanks.

Shame I have no idea of the answer! Is it anything to do with the letters that are missing in the alphabetic sequence?

Correct!

The series consists of characters that are not curved anywhere.

Thanks! Ordinarily I'm dreadful at anything that involves visual or spatial thinking. Not my strongpoint.

I'm at work, so here's a quickie. First person to name a word with all six vowels, a e i o u y, in order with no duplicates takes it.

(I thought of a word in the middle of the night and then realized it has this quality.)

No, I'm sure it was meant as a real question.

I've seen this question before, elsewhere, only without the "y" being included. The answer I've always known has been "abstemious", so perhaps "abstemiously", as well if that's a word.
