    Are you trying to help us making sure we find the window or is it just a distraction?

    There are a lot of windows in that Cathedral!!!

    I sure wish I could remember what the tour guide said about the window when I was there. It would certainly help right about now or would it?

    I always assumed it was the blocked up crypt window, or one of the old Norman windows that was filled in and covered during one of the cathedral's many "makeovers".

    Both times that Winnie has given us clues about this question the reference was to the Da Vinci Code. Has anyone read the book recently and remembers where in the Cathedral were they?

    Never read the book "The Da Vinci Code" (I spend too much time hunting for treasure to read) but if Winnie keeps giving us clues about it, I just might have to go buy the book and read it.

    Default opposites attract

    A couple of ideas about the "opposites attract" bit in the poem:

    - flatten the square with the letters placing each letter right on top of the one in the opposite position in the square and then read them up-down up-down.

    - instead of just flattening (which makes only the first letter to combine with its opposite) make pairs of the opposite letters 1-16 2-17 3-18... and read the text like that.

    - a much more improbable one, combine letters from opposite pages

    With all this talk of the Da Vinci Code, did you all know that the film crew was in Winchester Cathedral last year, when they were making the film.

    (I asked them if I could play the lead - they said they'd let me know when they did a remake of Lassie )
