Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/30/11

Little Blakey Howe.

A good scare is worth more to a man than good advice.”   —  E.W. Howe

(Absolutely!  Experience is always the best teacher, and nothing makes an impression like a good scare.  This is the kind of quotation that really makes me love doing the cryptoquote.  I was not familiar with Edward W. Howe before today.  This guy has some fantastic quotes, filled with insight, wit and common sense.  A couple of my favorites are:  “Some men are alive simply because it is against the law to kill them.”  and – don’t get too upset, AnonymousAmericans detest all lies except lies spoken in public or printed lies.”  If you get the chance, you really need to check him out.  You won’t be sorry.  Be well, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/30/11

A Waitress taking a breakfast order at Kahala ...

Visual Description:  Boss man keeping Typhoid Larry from spreading bad cheer.

RGEIM  =  GRIME,  OAFRV  =  FAVOR,  MSONMU  =  SUMMON,  ALTCEK  =  TACKL  —   Giving us:  RIEFVOSUOTCE

Clue/Question:  The waiter’s cold would soon force him . . .

Answer:  OUT OF SERVICE

(Pretty good!  I really liked the scrambling of “summon”.  The answer letters were fairly well scrambled.  I kind of saw OUT, even though it was UOT in the answer letters.  If  “tackle” and “summon” were switched I think it might have made it just a little more difficult.  But, that’s just yer uncle being picky.  Here’s hoping that everybody experiences a wait staff that is competent, courteous . . . and healthy.  The quality of service is always going to vary some, but don’t stiff them on the tip!  Their starting wage averages $2.50 to $3.00 below the minimum wage that others make, and they really rely on gratuities.  And, treat them with at least a modicum of respect.  You know.  How you’d like to be treated, if you were serving them.  They are someone’s son or daughter, sister or brother, mother or father, and so on and so forth.  Let your conscience be your guide.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
