No honest I just pick bits out that I know what they mean and work round them,for instance I know that 17 = all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, now after remembering what the actual phrase was, thats the hardest bit for me

20= is some thing to do with not gambling and you will get /stay rich but I don't know of a phrase to go with it

;)

P.S. as I have said before all my search engines are not functioning at present as I have a virus messing them about at the moment and no matter what I do I can't seem to clear it out (I am going to have to wipe the hard drive and start again soon)
