Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.”   —   Will Rogers

(Ya see, kids?!  Yesterday I mention Will Rogers, and what happens?  Through my psychic – psycho? – powers I have resulted in today’s cryptoquote being a quote by Will Rogers!  Wow!  Some days I am just so pleased with myself.)   😉   —   YUR

PS.  Plenty of big birthdays today!  Far too many to mention here.  So, I’ll just pass on the more prestigious personalities, and go straight to one of my generation’s first heartthrobs, Maureen McCormick – aka Marcia Brady, of The Brady Bunch!  Our Marcia, Marcia, Marcia turns Double Nickels today!  Happy Birthday to her, and to all the . . . honorably unmentioned.   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/05/11

The Amazon River in Brazil.

Visual Description:  Pompous pioneer profusely proclaiming his prodigiousness.


Clue/Question:  What the Amazon explorer and the Amazon River had in common.

Answer:  A BIG MOUTH

(Very good!  I really liked 3 out of the 4 clue words.  I’m betting that more people had more trouble getting “blurt”, “sixth” and “mayhem” than “gobble”.  Actually, only “sixth” gave me trouble, but I really liked “mayhem” and “blurt” too.  Great scrambling all around, and nothing obvious in the answer letters.  Cute cartoon and a good concept.  Nice way to end the week, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I like the character “Mayhem” in the Allstate commercials.  He’s played by an actor named Dean Winters, who might be best known – previously, at least – by his role of Ryan O’Reily, on the HBO prison drama: Oz.  I generally like prison movies, but I just couldn’t watch that show.  Too many disturbing scenes, I guess.   —   YUR
