I was surprised to see that 305 (almost half of the 621 players that played ) found the word dowsing.
I only mention this as it was the one word that I failed to find.
When I looked at those letters all I could think of was douse rather than dowse.

Maybe if I had thought of this joke then something might have clicked ;

Its about this bloke who was well known for his ability to locate groundwater for wells.
He used a traditional divining rod, but in quite an unusual way as rather than holding it in his hands he had an amazing ability to be able to have it balanced on his nose & was able to maintain that balance while walking whichever way it leaned until it finally fell.
When it would eventually fall to the ground , they would dig wherever it landed & find water every time.
He soon became quite famous & was interviewed by a reporter who asked him  "What is your secret?"
His response was that there really is no special secret as when he wakes up every morning he simply has a well - balanced breakfast.
