Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/14/18

Never worry about bad press:  All that matters is if they spell your name right.”   —   Kate Hudson

(I love Kate Hudson!  She’s gorgeous, talented, and a good business woman.  But, she was hardly the first to come up with this quote.  This quote is older than her equally gorgeous Mom, Goldie Hawn, and my equally gorgeous Mom, Louise, who’s no longer with us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 09/14/18

Visual Description:  A very small medium at large.

IOYNR  =  IRONY,  PHETD  =  DEPTH,  TMORYS  =  STORMY,  NNIETV  =  INVENT   —   Giving us:  IRNDEHSTMIEN

Clue/Question:  The possibility that ESP was real didn’t even – – – 

Answer:  ENTER HIS MIND

(I’d call this a non-stinky pun.  It has a certain level of sophistication.  I don’t think that 90+% of these people have any real special talents.  It’s all observation, percentages, and parlor tricks.  They mainly tell people what they want to hear.  But, a lot of people will go to them fairly regularly.  I went to one roadside “fortune teller” once, on a lark.  The sign enticed me with:  $10 Reading.  Of course, when I went inside I was immediately talked into a $30 or $40 reading.  Nothing enlightening.  So much vaguery that it was laughable.  Save your money, folks.

All of the jumbles came up as new, although all the clue words look like familiar old friends.  None of them stumped me today.  The answer letter layout was a nice 12-letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it, to me.

Fun cartoon.  The guy looks like how I felt after my reading.  LOL!  But, don’t call them Gypsies.  We have to call them Romani, or we’re being politically incorrect.  And, the PC Police will come after us, if we use the “incorrect” word!  Can you say:  Too much of a good thing! ?  I’ve always argued against the “slippery slope” argument, but now I feel like we’re all “Slip Sliding Away”.  At least we can sing along with Paul Simon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Close Encounters

What a tragedy if we allow/cause these magnificent creatures to become extinct! Let’s pray it’s not too late to save them. — YUR

A Brush With Three
Magnificent Whales

A visual dialogue between a Big Blue and a man longing to understand it. A dead Pygmy ashore, and a two-million year old puzzle. And an eye-to-eye with a giant Right whale. As the alarms sound all across the land, deep underwater these mysterious creatures remain elusive.
While only a minority among us has managed to touch them, soon enough not even that will be possible. The Requiem is about the biggest animal on Earth on a fast track to disappearance. The dead one was not supposed to be around. And a Right one comes up close and personal.
As awareness grows about the impossibility of keeping in captivity wild animals em general, and marine mammals in particular, we face a quandary: how to reintroduce them back into their natural habitat, when it’s already depleted and has been steadily shrinking?
As we learn…
