Got caught by overquoting. Isn't it the Veil and Double Cluster listed

are 111 on the list. Don't have Paul's book around to get his explanation.
Good thing to get ironed out before the Marathon haha.

objects you will find 111. 
=(Think double clusters and veils!) Anyway you are supposed to be working on
my second request,
