2014 in review

Here’s a little self-patting-on-the-back weekend filler, for those of you who just can’t get enough of yer UncleRave!  LOL!  Stay warm, friends.   —   YUR

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 540,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 23 days for that many people to see it.

Visual description:  In a haste to get well.

NUGTS  =  STUNG,  CMIRP  =  CRIMP,  AREYTE  =  EATERY,  UXESOD  =  EXODUS   —   Giving us:  SUNCRIETROUS

Clue/Question:  He couldn’t train for the marathon because his cold had to – – –

Answer:  RUN ITS COURSE

(An old fashioned groaner of a pun!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear new, to me.  Only “nugts” could be verified on my end.    I had some trouble with both “eatery” and “exodus”.  Not to the extent of having to back into them, but they weren’t gimmes, by any means.  The answer letter layout was good, but not super.  The cartoon was just kind of basic stuff today, too.  Nothing to get too excited about.  We’s gots ta take da mediocre wit da brilliant, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSNo idea where the pictures and related stories went.  WordPress giveth, and WordPress taketh away.  Always with no warning or explanation.     YUR

(So, let’s not be too full of ourselves.  There are different kinds of intelligence.  We all have our strengths and weaknesses.  And, we all have value.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
