Clue/Question:  The smell of coffee brewing always – – –

How to Make Stovetop Percolator Coffee

Answer:  PERKED HER UP

(I’ve said it many times before, coffee puns are never stinky.  They are aromatic!  Even before I ever had my first sip of coffee I enjoyed its smell.  But, the even better aroma is the ground coffee itself!  Whether fresh, or right out of the can/packet, that smell is hard to beat.

I was a little surprised, but it appears that we have a new clue word today, in “remake”.  I’m not seeing it on my January version of the ralis95 clue word database.  Temps are back to normal there, so he should be in a chipper mood.  But, in Siberia they’re seeing temps over 80°F, when it should be no warmer than 59°!  The advancement of Global warming in Russia is over twice that as the global average.  Say goodbye to the permafrost over there, and say hello to another increase in carbon dioxide!  They’re also sure to see more wildfires this summer, due to the increased temps.  Beside burning forests, the uncovered – formerly – permafrost areas, which are rich in carbon, will also burn.  Yes, the ground itself can burn, folks!   Boy, this *global warming hoax* must be the most elaborate hoax of all time!

We’ve seen the jumble “pleeo” sometime before, but the other three are coming up as new.  The answer letter layout was a very cryptic eleven letter jumble.  I went for the low-hanging fruit, and got UP first.  I wasn’t initially going past tense, but I did get there.

Jeff just loves promoting his favorite band, WILCO.  Not sure if this is supposed to be Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Tweedy, or just a couple of fans.  But, Jeff Tweedy’s family is doing an Instagram Live series, called “The Tweedy Show”.  If you’re a member of AARP you are prohibited, by law, from watching the show.  Don’t bother checking the TV Guide, Ethel!  You won’t find it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
