2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

London Olympic Stadium holds 80,000 people. This blog was viewed about 450,000 times in 2011. If it were competing at London Olympic Stadium, it would take about 6 sold-out events for that many people to see it.

Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.”   —   Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

(The author’s name is nearly as long as the quotation!  Today’s solution was deceptively difficult.  We don’t get a whole lot of thous these days!  My very first impression was that the X was going to be E, but I wasn’t convinced that YNX was THE – because I wasn’t seeing THOU.  I was thinking it was either THIN or THIS, so I had the Es as Is for a while.  I like the ones that make you think!  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  A talented musician, transcending borders and cultures.

Clue/Question:  When the singer performed in the capitol of South Korea, she sang this.

Answer:  SEOUL MUSIC

(Great jumbling of the clue words.  None were too difficult, for me – I didn’t have to back into any of them, at least.  It looks like ralis95 will be adding “mulch” to the database.  The answer letter layout was sufficiently cryptic.  The answer – pun – was pretty darn obvious, though.  Don’t know if Jeff had a particular singer in mind when he drew the cartoon, or not.  I’m not all that into Soul Music.  I’ve been having more connectivity issues with my computer, which is why this is as late as it is.  It’s looking more and more like people are getting their word game spoilers from some other source, anyway.  Oh well.  What am I gonna do?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
