    I got all 8!! Thank you so much Sweetie for all you do & post!!!!!!!!!! If I win a Scorpion, I’ll come all the way to where you live, just to give you a ride!!!

  2. Hint #6 – I can’t get any ads to pop up in the space there… i’ve tried many times to refresh… and thoughts?

  3. the scorpion is on the headlight of the motorcycle on the karl abarth page but it’s not clickable anymore. any thoughts??

  4. Angela Ross says:

    I’ve tried dozens of times over many days for the scorpion in clue #6, which is supposed to be on the “topspeed” site. Well, for ME it never appears, only many other ads that keep changing. It doesn’t matter if I refresh the screen over and over and over and over — seems like infinity times. It doesn’t matter which browser I use, it doesn’t matter if I have ad blockers ON or OFF or In or OUT or upside down!! It just simply will NOT load. It is a bogus clue and a bogus answer to that clue. It just simply does not exist.

  5. marilyn says:

    for clue #8 are there supposed to be ads on the right hand side of the page? all I get is the word google, google chrome and please thanks

    • Yes, there is an ad on the top right hand side. I also gave you the direct link above. Just click it and it will take you through to Facebook

  6. nanatooley says:

    Aaak!!! 1 day to go and can’t get the last 2 clues. The ads don’t appear, even after repeated refreshing AND using IE, Chrome AND Firefox and the direct links don’t return anything but a blank page – on IE, Chrome and Firefox.

    #7 – I just get an “ad” on the right that says March 1st and “Light em up of the Day”

    #8 – Small grey caps “ADVERTISEMENT”, a shaded grey line then a square for subscribing


  7. nytboookreview says:

    Now I see – no confirmation – just a reload. But very frustrating…

  8. Alek Dean says:

    I cannot find the National Geographic one, the Travel and Leisure one, and the 0-60 one… No pop-ups what-so-ever on Firefox. Any idea on help? Thanks.
