HASUQ  =  QUASH,  RUILD  =  LURID,  CRAHNB  =  BRANCH,  UNDOAR  =  AROUND —   Giving us:  SHRDAHAND

Clue/Question:  The manicurist said nails are this.

Answer:  HARD on the HANDS

(Great clue words, all very nicely scrambled!  Ya gotta love “quash” and “lurid”.  If the guys had changed the order of the clue words – undoar before crahnb – I think the answer letters would have been more challenging.  As they are, I think the answer was pretty much a giveaway.  I don’t know which is worse, the smell of nail polish, or the smell of nail polish remover!  Both of those things are positively lethal!  Hey!  Who do you guys like in the Super Bowl???)   — YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/04/11

Winston Churchill in 1904.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”   — Winston Churchill

(I think this was one of Winnie’s few Hallmark moments.  Very likely made later in life.  Most of his quotes are of a much more serious nature.  Outside of William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill is probably the most quoted Brit in history.  I was a little off on this one, this morning.  I originally had the second word as “have” instead of “make”.  It didn’t take away from solving the rest of the quote, so no harm, no foul.)   — YUR

PS.  By the looks of this photo, circa 1904, I’d say that Winnie was well into his drinking life! YUR
