(Another nice Olympic themed Jumble!  And, it’s the second use of the word “spirit” in word games today!  There were no new clue words today, but everything was well-jumbled.  I didn’t struggle with any of them, but I kinda liked TRUFOH.  It’s kinda like the English phonetic spelling of Truffaut!  The answer letter layout was cryptic enough.  It’s funny how most of the heavy-weight weight-lifters don’t look all that athletic.  Looks can be deceiving!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I liked the side photo, because it’s Python-esque!   —   YUR

The spirit of self-help is the root of all genuine growth in the individual.”   —   Samuel Smiles

(If he were still alive, I’d be asking him:  Is this who you are, or is this what you do?  I think most people, with an ounce of pride, really REALLY prefer to help themselves, whenever they can.  There are certainly times when you need the help of others, but there is a different kind of satisfaction when you accomplish things on your own.  Be well, do good . . . and continue to grow, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  All the pictures of the man, made available to me by Zemanta, prove that the latter part of my question is a big NO!  So instead, I give you these pictures of these beautiful smiling babies!     YUR
