HHRAS  =  HARSH,  ATOPI  =  PATIO,  LEGNOB  =  BELONG,  VEEROM  =  REMOVE   —   Giving us:  HAOLMO

Clue/Question:  The cow couldn’t buy the new cowbell because she didn’t have enough . . .

Answer:  MOOLAH

(What a difference a day makes!  Yesterday’s wasn’t impossible, but the answer was twelve letters, and involved some thought.  Today’s is just a single, six letter word answer, that would only challenge those who speak English as a Second Language.  And, I’m sure many of those people got it fairly easily, as well.  The saving grace of the Jumble is the humorous cartoon.  Why does the one cow almost appear to be wearing a dress, while the other one is Doe-naked, save for her bell and purse?!?!  I think it’s udderly ridiculous!  I wonder what “The Bruce Dickinson” would say about this cartoon???  Hmm!

Alright.  Now, down to the nuts and bolts of it.  All the clue words were well jumbled, but especially “belong”.  I didn’t need to write it out, or anything, but I had to go through quite a few mental combos before seeing it.  It looks like “harsh” is going to be a new addition to the ralis95 clue word database.  The answer letter layout did not give anything away.  But, the cartoon . . . OMG!  Are those Holsteins shopping at Halston‘s???  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, as Salma would say:  Don’t forget to dreenk your meelk!  How come her Mexican mom has less of an accent than her???  Por qué?)   —   YUR

PS.  LOVE the Salma Hayek!  How hot is she?!?!   —   YUR

PPS.  I like this mask.  It reminds me of a Mexican wrestler’s mask!   —   YUR

(There is a huge difference between studying, knowing and appreciating history . . . and living in the pastWith today’s overemphasis – in my opinion, at least – on math and science, combined with the philosophy of living in the moment, while looking to the future – which I actually subscribe to – I think that too many of us have lost sight of this distinction.   I think that old Winnie has succinctly hit  the nail on the head.  Spot on, as the Brits would say.  Don’t be some kind of history parrot though.  Realize that history is written by the victors, and it’s fairly malleable and subject to political whims.  But, don’t be arrogant enough to ignore it, or write it off as merely the past.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
