LibraryJim: Guess it’s one of those things you had to get used to.17:53

hounder: the scars the conclusive evidence17:53

Rush: Yes.17:53

fredsmom: agreed LJ17:53

danventure: I assume Rush you mean the movie “oil”17:54

Mike n Rachel in DC: Owner of face cannot always see nose17:54

Rush: CC shows them…17:55

danventure: Or do you mean the book “oil for the lamps…”17:55

Rush: No, the film.17:55

danventure: It’s here:

hounder: cool dan. good job finding17:56

Rush: TYSM, DV! A possibility.17:56

Rush: I see this message when accessing that address: “This website requires the Flash 11.1 (or higher) player.
You may upgrade your Flash plug-in by visiting the Flash Download Center.
Please note you may need to reboot your system.”17:57

LibraryJim: dan, you beat me to it, I just found it as well at the same site.17:57

Rush: That one might work.17:58

fredsmom: how was that***ctivated? heat from the light?17:58

Mike n Rachel in DC: Great look on Charlie’s face–sees something!17:59

Rush: “Very bad habit of collecting clues!”17:59

fredsmom: sorry typo-how was that writing activated-by heat?17:59

Rush: Like invisible ink.17:59

Rush: Or, lemon juice.17:59

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush…that line has a double meaning!17:59

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes Fredsmom…can write in lemon juice and it’s invisible until you heat the paper18:00

Rush: AH!18:00

fredsmom: but CC didn’t put lemon juice on it did he?18:00

Rush: No.18:00

Mike n Rachel in DC: No…the murdered man had written the letter. 18:00

Rush: Maybe someone in Washington, DC did.18:01

Mike n Rachel in DC: Innocent looking on one side, invisible message on the other18:01

Mrs Pendleton: It is written in lemon juice18:01

Mrs Pendleton: dries clear18:01

Mike n Rachel in DC: Perhaps Lee went Bo Ling?18:09

Rush: “OUCH!”18:10

Mike n Rachel in DC: He’s destined for art school for sure!18:10

Rush: :)18:10

Rush: Maybe that’s regularly done at a dive in Shanghai such as this one!18:18

Mike n Rachel in DC: I don’t drink. But opium, that’s a different story…18:19

Rush: I have never heard of it, but perhaps Shanghai wine is a popular export!18:19

Mrs Pendleton: You go first Charlie!!!18:19

Mike n Rachel in DC: True, Rush. And it’s probably not Johnny Walker Blue Label…18:19

hounder: i don’t think modern bars sell by the bottle 18:19
