Science never solves a problem without creating ten more.”   —   George Bernard Shaw

(But, that’s okay.  Because there really are no simple answers to most things in life.  And, problem solving is what expands our minds.  Our thinking never should be so constricted, when our potential is virtually unlimited.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/13/16

Visual Description:  The flying fishermen?

ZISEE  =  SEIZE,  CEILR  =  RELIC,  ULUYNR  =  UNRULY,  UTXODE  =  TUXEDO   —   Giving us:  SERERULE

Answer:  REEL SURE

(Love it!  It’s a classic stinky pun.  There were no new clue words today, however three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “zisee” before.  I can’t swear we’ve never seen “ceilr” before, but I do know it’s the alpha order jumble of “relic”.  Does anyone know why “seize” doesn’t follow that whole I before E except after C rule?  English is such a wacky language!  The answer letter layout made for a fun jumble, too.  I just helped my daughter buy a couple of rods and reels just a few days ago.  I think they had no luck fishing, but they were successful clamming!  Fun cartoon.  When I was a kid, I used to watch this character named Gadabout Gaddis and his fishing show, The Flying Fisherman.  I think it was the forerunner of all fishing shows.  Nothing slick about the show’s production, but Gadabout made it entertaining.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
