Maybe you guys saw his comment, but for those of you who didn’t:

“YUR: In the spirit of the Christmas season, I’m going to give away 5 copies of the “world-famous RALIS 95 Jumbles word database” to the lucky contestants selected by you who best describe in twenty words or less (as replies to this post) what they enjoy about the daily Jumbles puzzles. You send me the winner’s names and email addresses and I’ll email them a personalized copy of the current database. Contest opens tomorrow (12-3-15) and closes on Wednesday (12-9-15).”

Get to it, fellow Jumble rats!   —   YUR

    Jumble gives me a challenge and fun to start my day. Anytime I am stumped I ‘noodle’ it through all day long. If it is too easy I am disappointed. I love the puns and fun!

    The Jumble is the only reason I subscribe to a newspaper. It’s like getting a present every morning!

    I love the Jumble because it satisfies my dual thirst for puns and logical problem solving every day.

    Great submissions to the contest, but with the popularity of your site, I expected many more. Nevertheless, we have five winners to whom I will send the Jumbles Word Database (alpha-to-word sorted, in .pdf format). You just need to send me their names and email addresses so I can do that yet this week.

    We have a small number of regular commenters, boss. A lot of our readers are non-commenters. I’ve never quite understood why. We get 2 – 3 thousand views a day, and we have 1252 followers, but a limited number of “Like”s and Comments. I’ll get you the names and emails.

    Thanks. It may be next week now, before I can get at emailing the databases, but it should be within a day or two of getting the email addresses from you.

    YUR: All five winners have now been sent their personalized copies of the database – to the names/addresses you provided last night. I hope they enjoy using them. Best to you and Carol for the Holidays.

    I am just thrilled! Thank you so much for this special gift! (my gratitude reminds me of the Daffy Duck cartoon…”and I will love it and hug it and call it ‘George’!” =)

    I got very nice email responses from four of the five winners, thanking me for the databases. What a fine group!
