Seriously though, all notes are in the same range; make them all capitals
or all lower-case, depending on your vocal range.

Well, it's a fair cop. I didn't expect to you to tumble to my little scheme
so quickly. Yes - nowhere does the original post say that *I'm* barred
from entering. So there's a strong chance that I might win. Okay then,
in the premature spirit of Christmas, all entries will be adjusted for time
zone variations, *and* Dee and I will count ourselves out of it. Fair?
One contestant has gone for an off-list reply, and perhaps this is a good
idea. I hadn't thought about cluttering up the list with a pile of messages,
so my apologies to anyone who's affected.
So far, counting on- and off-list, three people are tied for first place with
five correct answers each. There's unanimity about some answers, but
some of these are unanimously wrong. I'll post full answers very soon.
