Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/03/11

“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame someone else.”   —   John Burroughs

(A very good warning/advice.  Fear of failure holds way too many of us back, when in reality it’s all part of learning and growing.  We need to remove the stigma attached to failing and accept it as the valuable part of life that it is.  Blaming others never really helps anyone.  To those who seem to find comfort in it, they are just fooling themselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/03/11

Visual Description:  Kids watching vids of setting up pups.

SILBS  =  BLISS,  YPRTC  =  CRYPT,  CNTAIT  =  INTACT,  COTENA  =  OCTANE   —   Giving us:  SSPTTATNE

Clue/Question:  The documentary about the history of camping featured . . .

Answer:  PAST “TENTS”

(This was a bit of a tricky one.  For the last clue word, I got it in my head that ENCOAT was a word!  It’s not!  I guess my mind came up with it’s own contraction of ENTERIC COATED, and decided it could be used as a verb.  So, my last 3 answer letters were wrong, which meant I couldn’t come up with the answer . . . for a while.  I finally got the joke and got the answer.  Now, I knew I had to make a T, an N, and an E fit into the circles, which is how I finally got “octane”.  It looks like “bliss”, “crypt” and “octane” are all new to the Jumble database.  This will make ralis95 happy.  Everything was nicely jumbled, and the answer letter layout gave nothing away.  It looks like this isn’t a vid-eo after all.  It looks like an old-fashioned celluloid? movie, being projected onto an actual movie screen.  Haven’t seen that in a while.  I guess it still could be digital.  Maybe I’m just too caught up in the past tense!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Now it looks like WordPress has even taken away color!  I hope you guys can deal with black (or grey) and white, until I can figure out what these guys are trying to pull.  Maybe they’re having a Netflix moment!   —   YUR
