Visual Description:  A grown man reliving – or imagining – glory days.

LYBUL  =  BULLY,  HOUGD  =  DOUGH,  GEOVAY  =  VOYAGE,  URBAUN  =  AUBURN —   Giving us:  UOGYERN

Clue/Question:  A nice feeling, but you’ll never get it.

Answer:  YOUNGER

(At first I read the clue/question wrong, and thought that it said: A nice feeling, but you’ll get over it. This made me doubt that the answer was “YOUNGER”.  Sometimes the mind plays some funny tricks on you.  Fitting clue words for the end of the year.  “BULLY”ing was big in the news this past year.  It’s a major problem, that was formerly kind of written off as some kind of rite of passage, or something.  I hope they don’t let the issue just fade away.  Whenever there’s some tragedy, that involves human violence, I’m always more concerned with the whys than most people.  To me, understanding the whys could possibly lead to the prevention of future occurrences.  Do you think Seung Hui Cho would have gunned down those 32 people at VA Tech if he’d had a less traumatic childhood?  Most of us could have dealt with having more “DOUGH” this year!  Man, was it ever a tough one!  Life is really one big “VOYAGE”.  And, “AUBURN” Tigers will be playing the Oregon Ducks for the BCS Championship . . . in another 10 days!  I think January the 10th is too damn late for the big college bowl game.  1st, 2nd, 3rd . . . even 4th, I can understand.  But, nowadays it’s all about television revenues.  Sad.  Who’s gonna win?  It might be nice to see the underduck win!  I know I’ll be watching their cheerleaders!  Happy New Year, dear friends.  Stay safe.  Avoid drinking and driving.  Even if you are ahem . . . well-practiced at it.  Remember.  New Year’s Eve is amateur night!  So, even if you are as sober as a judge, remember to drive defensively!  Do good, folks.)   — YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/31/10

Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.”   — Tom Krause

(Nice quote.  I don’t really know how appropriate it is for the last day of the year/new year’s eve.  Seems to me that it would be a better fit for New Year’s Day.  You know.  Encouraging words for the new year, and all.  Maybe it’s just me?  So.  This guy is some kind of motivational speaker.  A former teacher and coach, from Missouri.  But, that’s about all I could find on the guy.  Any time there’s no formal bio on someone quotable – not counting the pseudonyms – I get this uneasy/suspicious feeling.  I suppose he just wants to maintain a certain amount of privacy, but . . . I don’t know.  Anyway!  Have a SAFE New Year’s Eve, everybody!  Hopefully, 2011 will bring us all some peace and prosperity!  Thanks for tuning in.)   — YUR
