    Hello folks, I spoke with Mike today, more or less just as a friend to wish him well and a Happy Holiday season. We all know about the Bankruptcy and I think all who read this and take it a step further are those of us that found ourselves enjoying SOAD for many reasons other than to win a ring. For all who want another few clues, Mike has provided me with a few today to pass along. I am going to paste them exactly as they were provided to me. I wish everyone the best of luck that is still (as am I) trying to figure out how close or far I ever was.... Here are the clues from Mike, the first item 1 and 2 came together and then a 3rd clue came and it was the quote below from the book, and again, cut and pasted exactly as I received them. Mike asked that I pass these on to all who would like to have them, so here you are. It has been a while that I have spoken to many of you and I hope you are all well. Again here are the clues. Mike said the following:

    ----------------------------------------------

    im still not sure how to disclose the clues. but i can go on record in saying:
    1. "Hest is English".
    2. any child who can read, can read Hest.

    one more offical clue...

    "The symbols in the book swirled and coalesced in his mind, combined and formed anew, and gradually, he understood them."-- P 103

    -----------------------------------------------

    Mike did not have the ---- dashes I put those in to separate the quotes from mike and I added nothing, no punctuation, no spaces, please see what you can do with these. and Keep me in the loop. Good Luck, LordRhast

    "The symbols in the book swirled and coalesced in his mind, combined and formed anew, and gradually, he understood them."-- P 103

    FWIW, The fact that there are 103 shape symbols, and he included the page site of P 103, suggests to me this is indicating that we are supposed to start with the shape symbols.

    There are 3 action items here

    1. Swirl
    2. Coalesce
    3. Combine and form anew.

    Coalesce and combine have similar meanings, but seem to have separate actions. Coalesce could be referring to joining the strings of shape symbols into one single grouping. Combining and forming anew would suggest pairing symbols together to form a letter. It is the swirl part that never really made sense. The best i was ever able to infer was to use a combination of the Life eclipse spell and the picture of the 32 point compass to figure out direction and positioning of symbols around a 32-point circle, but there was too much ambiguity for me ever to feel comfortable with that.

    The ebay listing is titled "RARE! AARON BASHA 18K GOLD DIAMOND ENAMEL LADY BUG RING"


    RARE! AARON BASHA 18K GOLD DIAMOND ENAMEL LADY BUG RING - eBay (item 400092447625 end time Dec-27-09 19:24:15 PST)


    These rings have been at Basha's site for a number of years now so I'm not sure if "RARE" is the most fitting description. In my opinion that adjective should be reserved for the other four rings designed for the treasure hunt.

    I think chwbcc was refering to the new clue-"hest is English" so...malic=claim, hest=English.

    Of course we all know that MALIC HEST also anagrams to MICHAEL ST
