Archibald’s ‘Horse of the Day’
Arkle has to be first on the list, and would always be my choice on an Accumulator
Jamila’s ‘Daily Poison’
Aconite, or monkshood (Aconitum napellus); an extremely poisonous plant.

Toxic principle: aconite and a complex of other alkaloids;
Symptoms: tingling, burning sensation in tongue, throat, skin; restlessness, respiratory distress, muscular uncoordination, vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, possible death.
The Challenge runs over 26 days – with Sundays off for good behaviour – and each day will be based on the alphabet, from A through to Z.

Aconite – nasty stuff that!

Almost as nasty as some others I’ll mention. BUT also a homeopathic remedy. Thanks for visit, Tasha.
Thanks Roland – nice to come by – you’re a few behind me so I’m doing my A-Z duty and having fun. For me the blue against the green doesn’t read so well?
Thanks Susan. I’m following a few A to Z writers from previous years and anyone that drops by… then drop in at random. Might have to re-think the colour scheme…or at least the links colour. Used red once but others had problems with than. White background doesn’t work with the Sunspot theme. [Not until May though).

Archibald was my father’s name. Couldn’t help but think of him when I saw the title for this post. Great A post!
Glad I chose it then – seemed right for Mr Brewster.
Sounds painful … good name to keep in mind — arkle.
Archibald, interesting character; nothing good comes from conjuring death. 🙂
Nothing good at all…except nice visitors like uou, Silvia.
I have heard of monkshood before. I wonder how much is lethal? I guess only killers and mystery writers would Google that!
Thanks for the Lite-ning visit, Alex. Very much appreciated. I’ve taken Aconite as a homeopathic remedy, but not the neat monkshood. As a mystery/thriller writer I acquired “deadly Doses: a writer’s guide to poisons.” toxicity is 6 so only a minuscule amount will kill a healthy adult. Death occurs in ten minutes to a few hours.
Very very intriguing! I want more. Going right on to B!

The story will eventually unfold – via a few dead-ends – but I have an ending in sight.
