He that wants money, means and content is without three good friends.”   —   Shakespeare

(Anyone know what story/play this line is from?  It’s a good line.  The cryptoquote wasn’t a gimme – with only the last name for the author – but I didn’t break a sweat deciphering it.  Be well, do good . . . and ease off on the material, friends.  You really can’t take it with you.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 02/12/12

English: Dave

Visual Description:  David Letterman(?) moonlighting as a limo driver.

YIZRZF  =  FRIZZY,  SCELOT  =  CLOSET,  SUHRDE  =  RUSHED,  DACIVE  =  ADVICE,  BYRAKE  =  BAKERY,  SHINAB  =  BANISH   —   Giving us:  RZCRHEDVERYAI

Clue/Question:  The limo driver was going to do this.

Answer:  DRIVE HER CRAZY

(Dave can be overly chatty, at times!  Although, it’s hard to imagine him needing to moonlight, unless it’s just a comic bit.  Driving Miss Meryl???  Jeff likes to throw in celebs from time to time, but this could be any gap-toothed comedian, I suppose.  I got it rather quickly.  I only stumbled a bit on “closet”.  Both “frizzy” and “rushed” are new to the ralis95 database.  I thought both “bakery” and especially “banish” could have been jumbled better.  “Banish” was almost completely backwards!  The answer letter layout was good, though.  However, the answer itself was pretty easy.  Be well an do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Such a shame about Whitney Houston!  What a talent . . . and what a waste!  On the checkout line at the supermarket, today, there was a prophetic “article” about her in the National Enquirer.  Too strange.  And, in looking up gap-toothed celebs, just now, I came across a picture of Bobby Brown!  Sometimes you’ve got to wonder about what usually gets written off as merely coincidence     YUR
