As of 3:00 EST, the standings are:
Gary with correct guesses on #1 and #8; guessed at #4 and #10 (very close to a correct guess on 10) - 2 total
Lars with a correct guess on #8; guessed at #1, 3 and 5 - 1 total
Lila with a correct guess on #6 - 1 total
Al with a guess on #1 - 0 total
Thanks to all who've offered their guesses; the game is still on, so please join in! Clues to #6-10 will come tonight.
In the meantime, ome additional clues to #1-5:
#1 - Some theologians say that Satan was one of God's cherubs - prior to mankind's creation - and became the rebellious one. If you consider that God chose one day of the week in which to rest and/or worship, you might consider that Satan would also choose the same day, but rename it to suit his needs
#2 - When a man is "fertile" he has the ability to "seed" an egg; when he is not - much like a barren field - he is BLANK. The phrase can also be an explanation or description of the Golden Rule
#3 - This may be the largest of the sea horses (technically speaking), but is found in fresh water
#4 - There is a word (8 letters in length) that when defined means, someone who does all kinds of work; a jack-of-all-trades; a handyman. I am at the "boundary" of using that word to form a two word homonym which loosely could describe someone in a Native American community who's illegal - let's change the clue to: What would you call an illegal person who is posing as a spirit, and who works diligently for the tribe?
#5 - There are all kinds of arachnids - there are many German words - find the German word that means "well-rounded" and it will hopefully help you solve this. This same word is also Yiddish, and could mean plump and juicy.
I will be available to monitor your guesses if you send them to: ca_12_dozen@...

Well, considering last week's riddle launched late, and this one early, it hasn't changed the participation a whole lot. So far, only one person, Lars, has offered any guesses. He has 1 correct answer. Is this too tough? Not interesting enough?
Well, to keep things moving, here are my first set of clues for the first five riddles. I will offer the second set late tomorrow if necessary. Good luck, and please join in!!
