(With the wee ones, it really –  usually – is like this.  Some of them are going to be dead serious, while some others – the ones who are there because their parents want them there – kind of lack focus.  These parents look remarkably – perhaps unrealistically – unfazed that their kids are so distracted.  I seem to remember a lot more screaming coming from the parents.  Maybe it’s because I was one of them doing the screaming!

All of the clue words were jumbled nicely, today.  The jumbles were all new, as far as I could tell.  “Dirty” is one if those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  And, unless it’s been added since 12/31/13, “buffet” is a new clue word!  If ralis95 is still out there, it might be time for an update, brother!  The answer letter layout was another good jumble, and made you work to get the answer.  Cute cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Ah.  Words of wisdom . . . from the Dark Ages!  300 years later guys like Leonardo da Vinci and Copernicus, Galileo and Isaac Newton, and Francis Bacon, etc. brought us the scientific revolution.  And, eventually, more and more explanations became possible . . . and plausible.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
