      8D: ‘Vaccine is SALK’. Change A to the middle letter of January (U). ‘Pet’ is an synonym for sulk, hence the more common ‘pettish’

      13D: This is a bit of an awkward clue in my opinion. ‘Saratoga’ is both a tree (TRUNK) and a place. ‘Rings’ also suggests a tree. TRUNK CALLS are long distance or toll calls, as a call from Saratoga is likely to be.

      I hope this helps!

        Genius, thanks! I am going to have to wrap my head around that 8D one because there are references there I am unfamiliar with. The only thing I understood was the middle of January.

        Cheers for responding – I’m getting better at this by the day and your site really helps 🙂

          Glad to be able to help! I have thought at times of giving this up as it takes time and I have to pay for hosting. But positive feedback is good motivation to continue 🙂

          It’s understandable if you don’t get those references – I think Kropotkin is overly reliant at times on obsolete and obscure words!
