    These were way too easy. I'll try to do better next time. Number 10, Soroban, could also be 'livelong' as in 'all the livelong day'.

    Hello, masters!

    My first impulse was "livelong", but I figured it was too obscure.

    To my knowledge, the only occurence of "livelong" is in the song,
    . . "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad."


    Questions

    Where is it that "the skies are not cloudy all day"?

    Who wore "herring boxes without topses"?

    Why are we urged, "Say I look nice when I'm not"?
