On March 9, 2006 the site was revamped and new Scrapbook items added for discovery. One of the tricks involves listening to a ‘wireless’ program on the radio in the Extra Stuff bulletin board screen. Click the On/Off switch to listen.

Here is a transcript of the ‘wireless’ radio program:

Hello and welcome back to “Toots, Shoots ‘n’ Roots” with me, Tilden Toots.

Mrs. Georgina Smyth of Nettlebed in Oxfordshire has sent an owl with an all too common problem.

Dear Tilden,
I’ve not watered my Flitterbloom for several months and now when I need to use it in a potion I find it’s died. I’ve threatened it with a number of curses but it refuses to revive. What would you recommend?

Well Georgina, a combination of my famous Rejuicing and Regerminating potions ought to do the trick. Six drops of the red Rejuicer followed by three drops of the green Regerminator will be the breath of life to a plant beyond the reach of blackmail.

Unfortunately, that’s all we have time for today. But, be sure to tune in next time when we’ll be discussing the right way to skin a Gurdyroot and what to do if muggles hear your Honking Daffodils. Until next time, that’s Tootle-oo from Toots!

A new advert also appeared as one of the changing ads in the Rumours tabloid as a clue to trick. Here is the text of the advert:

Bouncing bulbs losing height?
Devil’s Snare merely tickling?
Fanged Geranium nothing but gums?
Then tune your wireless to
Toots, Shoots ‘n’ Roots
