Cryptoquote Solved – 01/18/23

Radio Habana Cuba | India recuerda natalicio de Mahatma Gandhi

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”   —   Mahatma Gandhi

(Perhaps the greatest man of peace the world has ever seen!  He had a great influence on our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.!  I wish he had been taken more seriously when he said about Palestine that “the Jews should disclaim any intention of realizing their aspiration under the protection of arms and should rely wholly on the goodwill of Arabs. No exception can possibly be taken to the natural desire of the Jews to find a home in Palestine. But they must wait for its fulfillment till Arab opinion is ripe for it.”  He saw Zionism for what it was/is; European imperialism that uses violence to achieve its goals.  He knew injustice when he saw it, especially since he spent 21 years in apartheid South Africa, as a young man, fighting for civil rights.  The world could sorely use a man – or woman – like Gandhi today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Expert Advice: How to choose a cabin on a cruise ship - Cruise International

Visual Description:  Nice Dreams!


Clue/Question:  The cruise ship had set sail, and to view the Mediterranean, they – – –

(Mais oui!  The South of France, aka The French Riviera, is tres TRES chic.  Certainment!  With the cities Marseilles, Cannes, and of course Nice, just to name a few!  Who wouldn’t enjoy a Mediterranean cruise?  After the wife and I settle a few medical issues, I think we will book one!

Take a look-see is a great old expression that you don’t really hear much these days.  I’m sure that it is lost on most Gen Z-ers.  Coincidentally, we have a Chinese restaurant by us named Look See.  It’s not our go-to place for Chinese, but it will do in a pinch.  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  Hoyt has definitely used “fonet” in at least one previous Jumble.  No stumpers for me today.  The answer letter layout was a tremendously cryptic twelve letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it at all.

Great cartoon of Jeff and Kathy, taking in the sights from their stately stateroom.  It looks like they’re just departing from the city of Nice.  Once they pass that pier they’ll be out at sea.  There is a ship out on the horizon, but it does not appear to be sinking, and it’s not even a sailboat!  I guess Jeff is trying to mix it up a little.  Who knows?  Maybe it would be bad luck to show a sinking sailboat while you’re on a cruise!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
