English: Wolseley, loading bays, Spa Park, Leamington Spa OS maps haven’t caught up with development in this area. The Explorer map shows the empty space that the huge Wolseley site now occupies, while the Landranger map is still showing the even earlier factory blocks of the former Automotive Products site.

Clue/Question:  His moving business really started to take off when the number of jobs started to – – –

Answer:  RAMP UP

(Believe me.  Getting things in and out of a truck, without either a power liftgate or a ramp, is one huge pain in the ass!  It takes two to three times as long, and is exhausting.  If you’re ever offered a warehouse job, or any job that requires the loading and offloading of a truck, make sure the truck you’ll be using always will have one of these two necessities.  Or, will always be utilizing a loading bay/dock.  I learned the hard way!

We have a new clue word today, in “waver”.  I was a little surprised to find that it was not in the ralis95 clue word database, but after today it should be.  And, all of today’s jumbles “appear” to be new!  The answer letter layout is actually very good for such a short answer.  Jeff’s great cartoon gave us not only one, but two ramps.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I don’t know if it’s because they’re British, but sometimes Zemanta is next to useless!  No decent related articles, and very limited pics!      YUR

    Took me a second to see “APPEAR” and another couple to see the final answer. Indeed it was a great answer letter layout. Luckily, UP was pretty much the only choice for the second word, so that helped, as did the fact that the answer had only six letter total. Nicely done by Jeff and David.
