Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/28/18

This is the power of gathering:  it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful:  in a word, more alive.”   —   Alice Waters

(A beautifully positive thought, from a woman who really, really cares about healthy, locally sourced food!  She paved the way for today’s “slow food” movement.  We welcome her today to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/28/18

Visual Description:  Dual purpose farm.

XINEV  =  VIXEN,  MILDY  =  DIMLY,  VRREOF  =  FERVOR,  GRYTEA  =  GYRATE   —   Giving us:  IENDLFERGYE

Clue/Question:  When they installed windmills on the farm, they created an – – –

Answer:  ENERGY FIELD

(“Any way the wind blows”  GONG!!!  A renewable energy pun!  Of course, I love it.  The extracting, refining, and burning of fossil fuels has taken its toll on our once robust planet.  You know . . . the only place that 99.999% of us can ever possibly call home.  We desperately need to step up our production of renewable energy, and wean ourselves off of fossil fuels.  If you’re still a climate change denier . . . just unsubscribe from this blog, right now.  I don’t want/need people like you reading.  I don’t write for people who refuse to see.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  No newbies.  But, all of today’s jumbles did come up as new.  I didn’t find any of them tough, but I’m just a big smarty pants.  The answer letter layout was a wonderfully cryptic, 11-letter jumble.  It did a noble job of disguising the answer.  Maybe, the biggest clue was the clue/question ending in AN – – –.  Good job, Mr. Hoyt!

Another fine farm cartoon from our old pal, Jeff Knurek.  Can’t make out what their crop is, but the windmills are unmistakable.  Fun Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.  Go green!)   —   YUR
