Well, that serves me right for staying up for over 31 hours trying to sort this computer out
I must of miss read it after editing the post .........
I'm still going for C, Your elbow
Intarsia = Intarsia is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours. As with the woodworking technique of the same name, fields of different colours and materials appear to be inlaid in one another, but are in fact all separate pieces, fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Marquetry = Inlaid veneers are fitted together to form a design or picture that is then used to ornament furniture
Parquetry = Parquetry is a geometric mosaic of wood pieces used for decorative effect. The two main uses of parquetry are as veneer patterns on furniture and block patterns for floors. The patterns of parquet flooring are entirely geometrical and angular-- squares, triangles, lozenges.

 Good questions, knew the answer to the  first, but am never clear about what is marquetry or parquetry,
I hope you are completely sorted now, well at least your computer ? I was looking at the new gas board payment plan, but what happens if your computer goes down
 Snow is thawing

Hi Sparky, as always a full and complete answer! Good job there is no prize or the others would complain.
Sory to hear about the computer, wonderful things when they work, but if there is a problem you are stuck. I have been reading about your problems.
Oh and the snow is thawing here, I have to go out tomorrow and I reckon the roads will be icy
Next Q in another thread, need to know your stuff for this one
