1 & 3 - correct
2 - incorrect (this one's tricky)

Thinking about Landmark's, all I have off the cuff is 5) Afros, but I don't think that's right.

11) Take in mixed messages - hold it!

Kerry,
5) is not correct. All of the answers to my clues are magic related. Should I assume the same for yours?
And clearly, from your time stamp, you're seeking to avoid The Wedding. Smile

#2 isn't really magic related, but I'm up for making all the rest magic related from here on in. #11 is.

I've got the palm in #9, but need to get it to eight letters (and one word.. all the palms I know are named with two words!).

Been watching The Wedding with family and twitter feed, complete with barracking. I'm not a particular royalist, but aesthetically it was terrific and the royal couple brought a great sense of humour to the formalities, which is a great sign. Their exit from Buckingham Palace at the end of the day was pure entertainment, in a way they could never have got away with twenty years ago.

Correct on all so far though 7) is more usually spelled Asrah, but you got the idea so you get credit for that one! You may be right that Back Palm should be two words. Judges?

13) Tarbell

5) All mixed up, so far. (5)
