OK, a hint first....think biology. Another broader hint...if you're a Quizzyland type, take a look at my quiz on mnemonics.

Acckkk...just realized I made a major omission in the sequence....the letters should be K, P, C, O, F __ __!

Dear Crisw:

I think ACCKK might just be an understatement . I still have a note on my refrigerator and at my computer as reminders to carry on the search! Heh...heh... heh....

Now it's more fun! Oh well, now I can look some more~~~~

Okey dokey!

P hylum
C lass
O rder
F amily

The O made all the difference. And, of course, the clue gave it away? Thanks for the help! Fun, as always.

Egad, now I have to come up with one!
This one should fill the bill.

C, A, P, A, T, G, C, L, V, _, _, _

Since it's you Wez I'd hazard a guess that the missing letters are HHP

The total being the surnames of the 1966 England World Cup Team

Ball
Charlton J
Wilson
Stiles
Charlton B
Moore
Banks
Cohen

with Hurst, Hunt and Peters the missing three

Just bringing this to the top again....you just have to work out what these have in common, then fill in the rest of the sequence. A subtle clue there!!!!

Sorry about that, Wez! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to put all the details, just in case I was wrong! But, oh my goodness! I met a challenge in a "brainy" thread? And NOW, I have to make the next question?! I don't know if I can stand the pressure! But here goes:

Stand up tall and stretch. Change your look and go forward.

R, A, 1470 M, H E, H S, _ _, _ _

*As I will be away til Sept. 1, I shall leave the correct response with blue, my twin. Just PM her if you think you've got it. But I don't think it will take that long!* ~Lea

Good going Lea, I had figured out that it was the Parliment, but I stared at that list forever and came up with nothing. You go girl!

The answer should give you some information that you can use as a hint.

I think I've got the sequence but I'm not sure what, if anything, follows HS - I thought that is where we are currently up to!
