    Fun quiz. But the puzzling question is, what is an "adamis"? Is that a Scottish word? An ancronym for "maid is"?

    Re: # 10, "make your bones" is what Mafia guys do. Used to be a cheery little pop tune over here about 90 years ago called "Dance around in your bones".

    And then there's the song the Fred Warring Chorale sang: "Dry Bones".

    on this point. Only buy lab-created jewels. Then you don't have to sob and carry on when they get lost or stolen.
