Mutterings - 4 September

This week's free word associations from Unconscious mutterings are:
  1. Cavern :: Peak
  2. Pharmacy :: Pills (and coloured glass globes that pharmacists used to have in their windows - that link says early 1900's but I remember them, as a child, in the 1950's and there was a chemist not to far from here which had a window display like that in the 1970's!)
  3. Local :: Services
  4. Group :: Think and Abelian - from mathematical group theory - will give you some background, including these (aged) jokes:
    • Q: What's purple and commutes? A: An Abelian grape.
    • Q: What is lavender and commutes? A: An Abelian semigrape.
  5. Brunette :: Blonde
  6. Chain link :: List - we're back in IT with linked lists)
  7. Priority :: Queue - still stuck on the connection before with another bit of IT and queuing theory!
  8. Intensify :: Pressure
  9. Foster :: Carer
  10. Secluded :: Meadow
