(I really like the answer letter layout on this one.  It didn’t slow me up from solving the Jumble, but I still thought it was a nice jumble in its own right.  We have a new clue word today, in “devout”.  ralis95 has yet another one for his world famous clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are new, with only the one for “encore” having definitely been used before.  The cartoon was pretty standard stuff.  No flashy characters, or interesting scenery.  Just two people in a room, with blueprints on a table.  That’s about it, folks.  Be well and do good.)   —  YUR

I call this Fire In The Sky. A sunrise from the workshop at the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, New York on January 8, 2008. Photo was captured at roughly 7:30 a.m. (EST). That morning was followed by a day of record temperatures with the highs reaching nearly 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius) despite it being in the dead of winter. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

English: Sundogs on New Years Day 2011, near Carthage, South Dakota. Ambient temperature was near 0 degrees Fahrenheit. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(While walking my dog this morning, in the lower Hudson Valley of New York state, the temperature was 21 degrees Fahrenheit.  When asked to comment on Mr. Milne’s statement Winter laughed:  The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.  Be well and do good, friends.  And, stay warm.)   —   YUR
