Paintings on ceramic tile from the Chinese Han Dynasty (202 BC – 220 AD); these figures, cloaked in Han Chinese robes, represent guardian spirits of certain divisions of day and night. On the left is the guardian of midnight (from 11 pm to 1 am) and on the right is the guardian of morning (from 5 to 7 am). From the National Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(So many young people today refuse to adhere to circadian rhythms.  Some even refuse to acknowledge their existence.  They just think they can get away with sleeping . . . when they can.  You know there’s something wrong when the accepted mind-set for them is:  no decent party starts before midnight.  I remember keggers starting at about 9:00.  You’d hang out and drink your fill until about 11:30 – 12:00, if it was decent, then go back to the dorm and watch a re-run or two of Columbo or McCloud.  And . . . There you go!  More than enough time to get enough rest for your 9:00 AM, or even 8:00 AM, class.  Will they ever listen to someone who knows better?  When pigs fly, maybe!  They will – eventually – learn . . . the hard way.

No new clue words today, kids.  All the clue words were well-jumbled though.  I especially liked the jumblings of “asthma” and “saute”.  And, another superior job on the answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious.  You had to use your noodle.  Realistic cartoon.

If you look at today’s Cryptoquote, it too involves alarm clocks.  Are the cosmos trying to tell us something?  Maybe it’s later than we think!?  Hmm!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I didn’t think it was fair to use the word sauté. “It can’t be,” I was thinking as I was doing the puzzle. “Sauté has an accent”. I did the rest of the puzzle and realized it had to be. Then I looked up the answer. Then I put “jumble saute” in Google to find this page and see if anyone else was outraged. Apparently not.

    I think I’ll give this puzzle to my 16 year old nocturnal son, though. Maybe he’ll get a clue.

    Foreign words, that have made it into the vernacular, are fair game. With the accent is more proper, but English is often very lazy when it comes to accenting Non-English words. Besides, accents in Jumbles would be kind of a giveaway.

    Check in on us any time! I don’t get them up as early as I used to, but I do get them up.
