Jumble Spoiler – 01/13/21

Period Design LLC » Cardiology Office

Visual Description:  In the midst of Chicago.

CRAGI  =  CIGAR,  TAFIH  =  FAITH,  SYWILE  =  WISELY,  TWUITO  =  OUTWI  —   Giving us:  CARFHIEYOTT

Clue/Question:  The new downtown cardiology center was built in the – – –

5 Minerals and Vitamins for Heart Health – Schiff Vitamins

Answer:  HEART OF THE CITY

(Take heart, folks.  Yes, this was a very stinky pun, but I bet most of you got the answer in a heartbeat.  You probably had your heart set on a more challenging Jumble.  But, do not lose heart.  Because you know . . . in your heart, that tomorrow is another day!  And, know that David and Jeff’s hearts are in the right place.  Cross my heart!

All of today’s clue words familiar to the Jumble faithful.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, however we have seen “tafih” before.  I had a little trouble seeing “cigar”, but just a little.  The answer letter layout was an elegant eleven letter jumble.  It hid the final answer very nicely.  The combination of the leading nature of the clue/question, the great cartoon, and how the final answer letter slots were laid out, made for the easy solve.

Great cartoon of a downtown Chicago office building.  Ooh, today all the Chicago shows are on!  I’ve never seen a doctor’s examination room . . . with a view before!  Maybe it’s the kind of glass that you can see out, but they can’t see in.  Just by coincidence, I had my “wellness visit” today.  Healthy as a horse!  Even though that Jumble was two days ago.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR,

    “And without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him”….Heb. 11-6

    Amen & Hallaluya…….k

    One of the exam rooms at my doctor also has windows but they are covered by blinds. Looks like those in the picture might be. Fairly easy solution to the jumble,but I had to back in to cigar.

    I’m not seeing any indication of blinds in my newspaper’s cartoon, Randy. Do you do one of the online versions?
    I guess Hoyt did a really good job with “CRAGI”! — YUR

    Ken,

    And, I have FAITH that one day mankind will outgrow its dependence/reliance on religion, and the world will have more peace and unity.

    Peace & Love…..YUR

    Another rerun answer from 2016, and this time, we weren’t so fortunate as to get a new angle on an old answer. This was a virtual rerun of the 2016 concept:

    I can understand our puzzlers wanting to reboot back to 2016. I’ve had the same desire myself.

    Presumably, David, you are referring to any time that year, prior to November the 8th!!!
    It definitely sounded familiar to me, as I was solving it, but I had no idea that it was so recent. I guess 4 years isn’t too bad, but still. Nice find, my friend.

    UR,

    Think on religion as a tool…> A good workman always tries to use the proper one…….☆

    Peace & Health to all…….k

    PS The upcoming inauguration may prove interesting??¿

    This one was a bit too obvious.

    Somehow, I managed to get “HEART OF THE CITY” before starting on this puzzle.

    I just read the jumble in the traditional newspaper. I was referring to the photo you posted on wordpress when I was talking about blinds in the office…sorry for the confusion. Have a good one YUR I get the e-edition of the newspaper,but I didn’t see any blinds in the cartoon.

    Aaaahh! Thanks for clearing that up for me, Randy! Have a good weekend! — YUR

    Sure, I consider a crutch . . . a “tool”. They come in handy when you’re infirmed. But, eventually you need to walk on your own!

    Don’t take up arms against your country, Ken! You’re too old for crap like that! LOL!

    Ken says the upcoming inauguration “…may prove intersting…”

    That might be the understatement of the month !

    I just prefer to keep this blog secular, Ken. But, when anyone tries to get religious on it, I feel the need to push back. Let’s just try to keep things in the here and now. — YUR 😀

    I can’t imagine any faction of our military supporting these extremists, in attempting some sort of coup. But, the possibility exists, lwc. — YUR

    Unc says: “I can’t imagine any faction of our military supporting these extremists…”

    The military does have a minor faction of what some may consider “nut-cases”, but their inclinations are moderated by the vast majority who are service-minded people seeking a challenge and adventure. They become the culture of our military services.

    However, mistakes do happen. Remember the movies “A Few Good Men” and “Munity On The Bounty” where the commanding officcer was the problem ?

    Also, did you hear this story:
    “Australian ‘war crimes’: Elite troops killed Afghan civilians, report finds”
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-54996581/

    Breakdowns occur only when the wrong people are in charge.

    Actually, lwc, Deutsche Bank is far from discriminant when it comes to who they will do business with.

    I bet you couldn’t imagine Americans attacking and breaching our Capitol Building either, and yet it happened. Even if that minor faction of the military joins up with these various right-wing militias, they might also get help from Academi – a private military company that most remember as Blackwater. The founder of Blackwater is a guy named Erik Prince, and he is a Trump ally, and guess who his sister is? It’s Betsy Devos! And, I wouldn’t be surprised if other private military companies – better known as mercenaries – would be buddies with Trump and his far right extremist friends.

    One reason why I’m worried about Academi joining in is because Trump pardoned four Blackwatter “contractors” who had been convicted in the killing of unarmed Iraqi women and children back in 2007. No other President has EVER pardoned someone found guilty of manslaughter or murder, but Trump thought it was a good idea. Was this some kind of payback/pay-forward?

    We need to be prepared for the absolute worst, because Trump is behaving like a wounded, cornered – and likely rabid – badger. His supporters act like they’re in a cult, and he’s the anointed one. This is serious, lwc.

    I suspect your statement is correct. Deutsch Bank is probably as shady as banks get. Doing business with shady dealers like the Donald may be their specialty. They may be looking for an Inside to double-deal Donald the same as he is with them.

    Shady deals of one kind or another may be de rigueur with them. So, Donald may be just one of their regulars.

    I’m starting to see the light, Unc !

    And, it just occurred to me, Rudy Giuliani is probably the same, just one more shady character looking for his cut. If he doesn’t get it from Donald, he’ll get it from some other sucker. He might even come to you, Unc. 🙂

    Does this remind you of the days presaging the establishment of the Third Reich ?

    A little German corporal people laughed at thinking he’s some nut-case.

    Or, when the French would n’t give Hồ Chí Minh the time of day because he was a “no body”. The French have a pattern of snobbishness.
