Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/25/20

Analysis : 'Eagle' by Alfred Lord Tennyson | Sunday Observer

Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.”   —   Alfred Lord Tennyson

(Very true.  Because, we often use words as a mask.  Polite society forces us to choose our words carefully.  Why does this Al get to put his title in the middle of his name?  Always seemed strange to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PHEDT  =  DEPTH,  LUCTO  =  CLOUT,  GUYNHR  =  HUNGRY,  IERFUG  =  FIGUR  —   Giving us:  DETCTUNGIGE

Quartz vs Quartzite vs Granite Kitchen Countertops - (Pros and Cons)

Answer:  CUTTING EDGE

(An interesting pun.  It’s a hugely popular phrase/term these days.  People in marketing love to use it.  I wasn’t quite expecting it, but I was able to get it quickly. 

No new clue words today.  However, three of the jumbles are coming up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “phedt” before.  The answer letter layout was a fine eleven letter jumble.  I can see how some of you might have struggled some in getting the final answer.

Great factory cartoon.  I was wondering if that machine was cutting out positions for sinks to go in?  Made sense to me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Albert Einstein - Quotes, Education & Facts - Biography

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”   —   Albert Einstein

(Hopefully, this means most of us remember most of what we learned in school.  Or, at least that we learned how to learn.  I think sometimes Big Al was just trying to be cute.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How to Become a Terrible Library Patron in 5 Easy Steps

Answer:  LEAF THROUGH IT

(An Arbor Day pun!  I totally forgot that yesterday was Arbor Day!  Just as I totally forgot to post the Friday spoilers!  Sorry, guys.  I don’t even have a good excuse for it.  Well, I sorta do, but it would really be of no interest to any of you.  It looks like I kinda let Earth Day go by without any mention too.  With the COVID-19 dominating the news, I guess that just slipped my mind as well.  But, I was reading some positive effects of the Stay-at-Home directives.  In most places the air has gotten cleaner, due to less people commuting.  And, sea turtles and shore birds are benefiting from so many of the beaches being closed/empty.  I don’t relish people dying, but this definitely shows how the planet would be better off with fewer of us.

Oh day of days!  Friday gave us a brand new clue word, in “fibber”.  Finally, something for our pal, ralis95, to add to his world famous list.  I was a little surprised that it was new, but sometimes the simplest words kind of slip through the cracks.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “sihto” before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive thirteen letter jumble.  It hid the final answer nicely.

Nice library scene cartoon.  A very cheery, helpful librarian and an environmentally conscious young woman.  I bet she has no objection to the plastic bag ban, that more and more states are enacting.  Sure, it takes a little getting used to, but it’s a responsible way to go forward.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I missed the beginning, but I would like to wish all of my Muslim friends a Ramadan Mubarak!  Stay strong, friends.   —   YUR
