Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Can you name these 9 words or phrases?

Hi Gary

Been sleeping on it.

1. Is probably a mix of No Pay Down and year

9. Some sort of arrangement on A big split carpet.

Best regards
