Cryptoquote Solved – 02/07/23

Celebrating 100 years of Winnie-the-Pooh: 2022 Lois Lenski Children's  Literature Lecture - News - Illinois State

If you live to be one hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”   —   A.A. Milne

(I’m pretty sure this was one of Winnie the Pooh’s lines, but was it said to Piglet, or to Robin?  It has been too long since I’ve read these stories to my kids.  It’s a beautiful sentiment though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 02/07/23

This Stunning New JWST Image Reveals Fresh Details in The Famous Pillars of  Creation : ScienceAlert

Visual Description:  NASA’s infrared flagship observatory!


Clue/Question:  When the new space telescope began sending incredible images, it was – – –

James Webb Space Telescope tweaks observing plans to avoid micrometeoroids  | Space

Answer:  SO FAR, SO GOOD

(What a technological marvel the James Webb Space Telescope is!  And we thought we had it good with the Hubble, the Spitzer Telescope and the Herschel Telescope.  The JWST is another infrared telescope that is around 48 times more clear and precise than its predecessors, allowing astronomers to see things that have never been seen before.  I think I read that the operations center is located in Baltimore, MD.  Good thing those two racist/terrorists were caught before they could attack Baltimore’s power grid.  Why are there so many sick and hateful MFers out there these days?

All of today’s clue words were discovered – again – on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  However, we’ve definitely seen “cdroot” in earlier Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  Well, not really.  It took me about two seconds to get the final answer.

Great cartoon of the scientists/technicians working the controls of the JWST, showing us what might be the origins of the universe!  Pretty heady stuff, folks.  Things that are pretty much beyond most of our comprehension, but very cool to say the least.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  On this day in 1965, in Black History, Chris Rock was born.  And in 1926 Dr. Carter G. Woodson designated the second week in February as Negro History Week.  This was the forerunner of Black History Month.      YUR
