Brilliant connection there Gary.
Take a hyphenated phrase, loose one word, and post the remaining word to leave the rest of us scratching our heads where the link is :-)

Years ago I was deposed in that building when it was full of law firms and not IT equipment.
And it isn't hyphenated on the building sign

Think it's time for drinks again.
Latterday is not one word. It appears that it can be hyphenated as in Latter-day Saints or its two worlds latter day. I could not find it in any dictionary as a single word.

I point to a different discussion https://einsteinathome.org/content/word-link-discussions-0 as to how being pedantic can seriously reduce participation.

A brownie or broonie (Scots), also known as a brùnaidh or gruagach (Scottish Gaelic), is a household spirit or Hobgoblin from Scottish folklore that is said to come out at night while the owners of the house are asleep and perform various chores and farming tasks.
