Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

Daniella: Between the two answers you are close. The riddle is taken from "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien. Bilbo uses it in his riddle contest with Gollum.

im not sure if anybody got this, but Lady Grey, the first one is a person going through life

baby walks on four "legs"
when matured, walks on two
and when elderly, the cane he/she uses counts as third, assuming he/she has back problems

1)Correct James. You solved the riddle of the sphinx.
2) Correct cfm. The man on the stool is eating a fish and his pet cat gets the bones.

Shadow asked his secretary to make him a coffee. While the secretary was making the coffee, her ordinary clip-on earring fell in to the cup. Even though the cup had coffee in it, the earring didn't get wet. How is this possible?
