(Pretty deep!  Too many people speak without thinking.  And, too many also think only what they’re told, and don’t really think for themselves.  That’s the trouble with indoctrination.  And propaganda.  We all love the idea of free will, but so much of what we think/believe has been ingrained in us, from birth . . . to today.  Tough for many to overcome.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ALL FOUR IT

(Compared to “Yesterday”, today’s Jumble was Scrambled Eggs!  Pretty basic.  In case you didn’t know, Scrambled Eggs was Paul’s working title to the song that became “Yesterday”.  But, that’s jumping a few years down the road, for the Fab Four.  Their only food related songs, from those earlier days, would’ve been “A Taste of Honey” and “Honey Don’t”.  And, both of them were covers of hits of other performers.  Most bands, early on, relied on playing covers, because audiences could relate easier to songs they already knew.  The Beatles covered a lot of different artists.

All of today’s clue words are old friends, though we probably haven’t seen them in a while.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “nulbed” before.  The answer letter layout was a gas!  Yeah, baby!  Only nine letters long, but not obvious.  The quotation marks, and all the boys being so agreeable, were the big hints to the answer.

Great likenesses of the Fab Four, and their manager, Brian Epstein.  You can almost hear the Liverpudlian accents.  As a six year old, going on seven, the British Invasion didn’t affect me as much as it did older kids.  But, I got up to speed a few years later, and developed a healthy appreciation for The Beatles, and the bands that followed them.  But, I can’t live in the past.  I can only take “Classic Rock” in small doses.  It makes me feel old.  I need to hear the Kaleos, and Amy Shark, and Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa, and so on.  I do have a soft spot for The Cure and The English Beat though!  But still, in small doses.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
