All I'm getting is a brain fart! I have searched through a lot of the words related to the pot of gold myth (sidhe, shillelagh, leprechaun, etc) and the rainbow itself. I'll try again tomorrow. :clueless:

I think Born Again needs to post again.
I was thinking he had a keyboard malfunction and it should be GIFTCARD.

Hint: Is a rainbow similar to a moon dog? Why do a certain type of fishermen need to fight their perceptions?

If it has anything to do with refractions of light, then I don't know how it's spelled. I tried combinations of that when I was following the pot of gold clue.

Well you are close, at least in the same field, but maybe we are all obsessed with speed. What is partially blocking you from looking for a rainbow on one of your CD's; if you want to go to that length? Look closely through slitted eyes, and you'll find it.

Edit: just noted that Piecemaker was the top banana today!
