But wait too long and your goose be cooked.

But first, you find where the new puzzle presides,
Easy, just look at where your likeness hides.

Linda another time then? – Tamsin

Not sure I want to do either Linda or the Engine but hey here I am.
Nicely done Jason. How did you figure it out?
The date jumped out so it had to do something with Linda. Then I started clicking around the site and ended up here.
Simple as that.
It is sean, i am here
Well done Sean 🙂
Still going to be rough
Welcome to the club Walid!
Get pumped 😤
We figured it out 🙂 Drove us crazy but as soon as we realized one thing, we figured it all out so fast!
Glad you solved it! Well earned.
Welcome to the Club!!!
Need to test out the Echo bike but with lunges, rower sounds like a better option.
Have at it! You have three extra days to practice.
I hate the echo bike! Not the echo bike!
Welcome to the club — looks like you get the rower!
