Thanks, rbe---

As a hyphenated term, live-in makes no sense with filler, but "live ON ONE income" makes sense.  The way I should have read the clue was "What can fill the space between live and in?"  For space fillers, I would prefer an underscore [___] rather than a hyphen [-] --- unless confusion is the intent.
