Crossword 17

Hi all. It has been quite a while since I have published a new puzzle but I finally gathered the time to put a nice one together (in my opinion). Copying from my fellow crossword maker, Bill Butler, I have decided to rate my puzzles. Seeing as this is number 17 and you may be used to my styling now and the style of Crosaire then I would say that this is a 5/5 puzzle. Please let me know whether or not it was too difficult or if it did not live up to its rating. Thanks all!
