and HELP! Stuck I am. Two clues left, bumper crossword ,much trouble it is (I've turned into Yoda it would seem!?) nice prize awaiting the winner.The finest minds in the universe read this blog so I'm sure at least one ,if not several of ye, will know the answers to these or die in the attempt to find out.
Now listen the first clue is 'Public notices, in short' 3 letters A_S .I'm guessing it's APS but I haven't a feckin clue.Second one is 'They rise in response to cold or emotional stress' 10 letters
G_O_E_U_ _S

Ask not what an EEjit can do for you but what you can do for an EEjit.I'm waiting, come on now,come on, come on! Time is money,get them brains ticking!

OR....It could be glomerules: compacted cyme of almost sessile and usually small flowers. ( Cyme: cabbage sprout, to be pregnant, swells, grows, an inflorescence in which each floral axis terminates in a single flower; a determinate inflorescence of the type containing several flowers with the first-opening central flower terminating the main axis and subequent flowers developing from lateral buds

glomerulus: a small convoluted or intertwined mass; a tuft of capillaries at the point of origin of each vertebrate nephron that passes protein-free filtrate to the surrounding Bowman's capsule.

Hey Jeanne, ads it is (I is complete blind idiot looking for obscure acronyms) and be-da- hokey, ye had me scratching me head in amazement at the scientificatious words, but they all fitted and sounded so almost plausible and then like a Eureka moment,a bolt of inspirational lightening explodes clarity across the universe and up pops the prosaic simplicity of goosebumps. The penny drops, the jig-saw is complete. You is GENIUS, thank you , thank you ,thank you!
