(Another toughie.  Maybe the guys are taking a page from the Will Shortz playbook, and making the jumbles harder as the week goes on.  If that’s the case, maybe I can semi-retire and only post the spoilers for later in the week!  You guys don’t really need to come here for the easy ones anyway.  We shall see.

No new clue words today, and only the jumbles for “length” and “ironic” are coming up as new, for me.  For some reason the one for “after” always kind of gets me.  I keep seeing FRATE, as if FREIGHT could be spelled that way.  Sure, I know better, but . . .  The answer letter layout was a jumble masterpiece!  It definitely did not give the answer away.  I had to think a bit to solve this.  The cartoon is great.  I love the clown, the acrobat, the ringmaster, and the human cannonball!  Good stuff.  I hate all the political correctness surrounding circuses these days!  It’s like those wiseguys who always have to point out that Puff, The Magic Dragon is – debatably – about smoking pot.  Can’t it just be a sweet song about a young child’s imagination, and the inevitable loss of innocence ?  I don’t like it when people going screwing around with my childhood memories.  Just enjoy the simple pleasures, and shut the fudge up!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/01/15

The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.”   —   Ralph W. Sockman

(Yes, Art.  I did have to look this guy up.  I figured it was Sockman, but wasn’t discounting Soukman.  It’s a nice quote, but I’ve never thought of knowledge as an island.  I always think of knowledge as a large body of water, like a sea, or an ocean.  Knowledge is not static, it’s fluid.  At least that’s always been my take on it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How To Force A Redirect To The Classic Editor Interface

I rarely Edit after posting, but this is good to know. I appreciate that WordPress provides a free forum for bloggers, but wish they would make their “improvements” optional. — YUR

The Solution To Use The Classic Editor

If you are blogger at, this post here will help you to solve a big problem. As you have noticed, the decision makers at WordPress want to force you to use the recent new editor interface that is purely designed for mobile devices and for users who only create short-form content. This is of course a pain if you are desktop user and if you like to create long-form content as well. In this post you will learn how to get back to the classic editor permanently.

In the new editor form, we had a link back to the classic editor but that link is now gone too. WordPress does not have the intention to give us the link back as you can read here in the forums. If you go through this huge forum thread, you will find out…
