(Unless you’re a Mother Teresa type, very few are going to recognize your daily work.  Most jobs are measured by memorable milestones.  I guess it’s just human nature.  Neil Armstrong was a great man.  A national hero!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(No ambiguity, today!  Back to a more straight forward, by the book, stinky pun, Jumble.  And, what’s not to like about today’s puzzle?  The clue words were all tried and true, yet all of the jumblings appear to be new.  The answer letter layout was as cryptic as possible, for a seven letter answer.  And, we got a classic, Disney-style cartoon.  If you don’t get the full sized Jumble, you are likely missing the subject of the framed work on the wall behind Daisy.  It’s a picture of Mickey from his very first cartoon:  Steamboat Willie.  Unfortunately, it’s coming up in my Zemanta as “Non-free, could qualify as fair use”, which means I might get away with it, or they might sue me.  I don’t need the aggravation, folks.  I’ll try to find something in the “Public domain” for you, but the Disney Company didn’t get this huge by giving anything away!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
