Answer:  FACE TIME

(Not the kind through your I-Phone!  You know, modern technology is really effecting the way we speak.  This:  #  used to be known as the number sign, or pound sign.  But thanks to Twitter, people are calling it hash tag now.   To the point where it really gets annoying.

There were no new clue words today, and only the jumbles for “amuse” and “divine” were new.  But just as an FYI, “effort” is another one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The answer letter layout was also a great jumble.  I don’t think it gave away a thing.  The cartoon is reminiscent of the Disney cartoon Beauty and the Beast.  At least to me it was.  Not as tough as yesterday’s jumble, but still a lot of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How frighteningly few are the persons whose death would spoil our appetite and make the world seem empty.”   —   Eric Hoffer

(I guess it all comes down to the fact that births and deaths are relatively personal matters.  They both happen, countless times a day, each and every day.  The cycle of life.  The ones that matter to you aren’t likely to matter to me, and vice versa.  But, hopefully we can all empathize.   Switching from the personal to the more celebrated, who has died in the last few years that has truly affected you?  For me, I’d have to say Robin Williams’ death was the most upsetting.  I know some people – especially older people – didn’t appreciate his frenetic persona/act.  But to me, he was a white hot luminous beacon of creativity, who always brought a smile to my face.  His death was both a huge shock and disappointment to me.  To this day, I still find it hard to believe that he took his own life.  Maybe it’s selfish of me, but I just found it to be so senseless.  Whose death got to you???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
