Cryptoquote Spoiler (?) – 12/05/11

Wow!  Great response!  (Of course, some of you folks need to look up the definition of “a clue”, but I’m not going to complain.)  Thanks for everybody’s help.  I guess my head was just not in it, today.  The last thing I was toying with was going to start with TO TEACH . . .  But, I just couldn’t give it anymore time, or thought.  It wasn’t easy though, was it?

So now, without further ado (Thanks to mah peeps!):  “My music is best understood by children and animals.”   —   Igor Stravinsky

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING HERE FOR???  At the present time – as I write this, maybe not as you read this – I haven’t a friggin’ clue what today’s answer is.  Tried a few things – in pen, of course – and fffed up the whole thing!  Someone want to send me a clue of some kind?!  Because I’m currently clueless!   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Today in Music History!

FHETT  =  THEFT,  LRLID  =  DRILL,  STRITH  =  THIRST,  SCAYLS  =  CLASSY   —   Giving us:  THEDRILTIRCLA

Clue/Question:  The Penniman’s baby boy, born on 12-5-1932, would grow up to be . . .

Answer:  LITTLE RICHARD

(Looks like the “Little” one is a chip off the old block!  Another 3 new words for the database!  “Theft”, “drill” and “classy”.  Good answer letter layout, but it’s a little like trying to hide the actual Little Richard.  Shut up!  Great cartoon!  Big day in musical birthdays.  Mr. J.J. Cale is 73, Jose Carreras is 65, Jim Messina is 64 and John Reznick is 46.  Be well, do good and keep on rockin’, friends!)   —  YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/04/11

“One man’s word is no man’s word:  we should quietly hear both sides.”   —   Johann Von Goethe

(A good perspective to have.  You just have to suspend it while listening to your wife vent.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 12/04/11

Visual Description:  No “Lost” in space???

RSDEYS  =  DRESSY,  NICICO  =  ICONIC,  NATTUR  =  TRUANT,  AMFLEE  =  FEMALE,  TOORAR  =  ORATOR,  PLAISR  =  SPIRAL   —   Giving us:  SSCNTTAEAOSPI

Clue/Question:  What the astronauts wished they had for watching TV in orbit.

Answer:  SPACE STATIONS

(Three new clue words: “dressy”, “iconic” and “spiral”!  All the clue words were a challenge today, and the answer letter layout gave nothing away!  Great cartoon!  I like the little hatch at the bottom , where you can see part of the earth’s western hemisphere.  Nice touch, guys.

A good friend of mine is very ill, with kidney failure.  She’s entering her 5th day in the hospital.  She’s getting blood transfusions and dialysis, daily.  Hold a good thought, and if you’re inclined to prayer please say one, for Nida Aberin.  She needs all the help we can give her.  Be well, do good and think positive thoughts, friends.  Thanks.)   —   YUR
