    Thanks for the blog, Jed, and Beelzebub for the puzzle. Esp for OB-AND-SOLLER, I got it all right from the wordplay but could not find it anywhere until now. What I missed was the hyphenation and it’s in Chambers for sure. BTW, I think 14A is AT TIRED with at being a bit of a kip (currency).

    Thanks, Jed. A very tough week, I found, with lots to work out and also lots to check before entry, and of course it was ultimately satisfying to see a completed grid
