75 : Diamonds and Ice

The 75th show made use of the wedding-anniversary convention and had a theme of diamonds – which had to be augmented by ice (the slang term for diamonds, we are lead to believe).  A very wide-ranging selection was the result of combing all our stash for suitable candidates.  In the end we had enough to cover the pre- and post-show requirements as well.
