Nothing can so alienate a voter from the political system as backing a winning candidate.”   —   Mark B. Cohen

(Because, now everything that goes wrong, during his/her administration, becomes your fault!  YOU voted for them!  I don’t know Mark B. Cohen, and Zemanta did not provide a picture of him.  I don’t know who Kirsten Cohen is either, but I’m guessing she’s a whole lot easier on the eyes than old Mark.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Why do grandparents and grandchildren get along so well?  They have the same enemy – the mother.”   —   Claudette Colbert

(Cute.  Our first Claudette Colbert quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  There seems to be no apparent relationship between the great actress, Claudette, and the comedian, Steven.  Both were/are great talents though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/25/14

Visual Description:  Amateur sailors, giving it a shot.


Clue/Question:  They weren’t sure what it would be like sailing in the Mediterranean, so they went – – -

Answer:  OUT TO SEA

(Pretty obvious today.  The biggest problem for me, and probably a number of you, was that the second circle was in the wrong place in “forage”.  It should have been in the fourth position, but in the Democrat and Chronicle, and the Arkansas Online, it’s in the sixth position!  I’m not sure how it is in my home paper, or in others, but it likely had an adverse effect on a good number of you.  I don’t believe any of the clue words were new today.  They all look familiar.  Ironically, the only jumble that wasn’t new was the one for “forage”.  The answer letter layout was another fine jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  And, the cartoon was a quaint little European seaport.  The cartoon in today’s paper was a little reduced, so it’s hard to comment on any detail, but I’m pretty sure Jeff skipped the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  I guess it wouldn’t exactly be appropriate, considering the couple is heading out in a sailboat themselves!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 07/24/14

Visual Description:  A reel wheel spiel!


Clue/Question:  The salesman knew everything about bicycle wheels and made a great – – -


(Beautiful!  A marvelous pun.  I forgot to bring my ralis95 clue word database with me, so I’m not sure if any of today’s words are new, or not.  They look to be old reliables, to me, but that’s just a best guess.  Maybe, because, I got them all without any trouble.  I do know that only the jumble for “press” has definitely been used before.  All the other jumbles were new, to me.  Another top-notch job on the answer letter layout.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon does a fine job of getting the point across.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn.”   —   Cicero

(I’ll have to relay this to my daughter, the brand new teacher.  Most who want to learn are not intimidated by teachers, but there are always some who are.  Knowing this can only be of use to her.)   —   YUR

Zig Ziglar Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days (Photo credit: symphony of love)

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”   —   Zig Ziglar

Spend time with those you love. One of these days you will say either, ‘I wish I had’ or ‘I’m glad I did.’ (Photo credit: symphony of love)

(Hopefully, it’s something positive.  But, you can’t always count on that.  So, you can also take this as a cautionary tale.  Be careful what you wish for.  And, be cognizant of what you are becoming.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSThe spoilers might be late, and look different for the next few days, as I won’t be at my trusty desk top computer.  Your patience is appreciated. - – –   YUR

The difference between fiction and reality?  Fiction has to make sense.”   —   Tom Clancy

Question Mark Graffiti

(This one took a little time to get going.  I had to consider the quote possibly starting with:  WHO, HOW, WHY, HAS, WAS and especially ARE, due to the question mark.  I wasn’t expecting a question of inflection.  Being relatively sure the N was the E, and the D was the N, I was able to figure out “between”.  From there the whole thing started coming into focus.  FACT is very often stranger than FICTION.  Be well and do good, friends.  Peace.)   —   YUR
