The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”   —   Morrie Schwartz

(Must be a line from “Tuesdays With Morrie”.  I read the book about 20 years or so ago, so I can’t be sure.  Beautiful quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  RESOLVE

(And boy, I would need tons of resolve to crack that equation!  It took me two shots to get through Algebra, then that was it for math and me!  Regrets?  Sure.  Because now I see how intertwined math is with so many other things.  Especially with things like astronomy, chemistry and music, but also in computing.  Too bad I was a know-it-all teen!  I knew crap!

It looks like we have a new clue word this day, in “spirit”.  Seems strange to me, but I could not find it on the latest version of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “lival” before.  The answer letter layout was a sweet seven letter jumble. 

Nice cartoon of what looks like a college/university level lecture hall.  That’s a very realistic looking advanced mathematical equation.  I wonder if Jeff copied from somewhere?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.”   —   Christian D. Larson

(Looks like this guy was an optimist!  This appears to be the first Christian D. Larson quote to be used in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/27/19

 

Image result for people smoking cigarettes

Visual Description:  Avoiding the smoking section.

UAOTQ  =  QUOTA,  CANTE  =  ENACT,  LOCLRS  =  SCROLL,  BLYAFB  =  FLABB  —   Giving us:  TAEASCRLY

Clue/Question:  They saw the polluted air by the smoking section and decided to – – –

Answer:  STAY CLEAR

(And, who could blame them?  Second hand smoke can be nearly as dangerous as smoking itself, and the smoke clings to your clothing and hair.  For us non-smokers, this is definitely a stinky pun!  I smoked for a few periods of my adolescence, but I never truly enjoyed it.  And – fortunately – I don’t have an addictive personality, so I never had to fight quitting.  I am semi-addicted to word puzzles!  I need to do my daily Jumble and Cryptoquote.  And, if I’m bored, I do the crossword puzzle.

All familiar old clue words today.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “cante” having definitely been used before.  No stumpers today, for me.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Great cartoon!  Stereotypical looking smokers.  Possibly not fair to them, but . . .  The non-smokers look satisfactorily judgmental too.  Lungs just weren’t made for smoke, folks.  And, tars and nicotine are hardly recommended “nutrients”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
