My first thought was Spain on Tuesday, but I thought they had been too caught up in their own drama to take sides in WWII. So then I decided that I was jumping to conclusions to assume from the clue that the country was formerly on GMT, and tried to make my way east of GMT+1, landing in Italy and deciding that made a good amount of sense. (Italy is GMT+1, but it didn't adopt it in 1940.) On Friday, Regina didn't feel "western" to me (I think I was erroneously placing it in Nova Scotia), Victoria was clearly too obvious, and Alberta was just obvious enough in my mind, and then I double-failed by thinking Edmonton.

See you guys in a while; I'll be mostly in London and Paris until the 20th.

Only got XRay (and Prokofiev) on this set. Was not spoiled until after the fact, because I tend to let episodes pile up on my DVR.

My grandmother had a recording of Peter and the Wolf that she played (probably at my request) over and over when I was young. No way was I missing that one. I do miss her, though.

29% on the cigarettes clue. That iMO screams undervalued and/or poorly written clue.
