(I had to look up “jollity”, to see if it was listed as archaic.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t.  I don’t think I’ve ever heard the word used before.  Must be a Brit thing.  But, it was the word “crowds” that was solved last.  These two words made this a challenging solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(There’s not much cooler than being a physicist!  I wish that someone had sold me on math when I was young.  I had always loved science, but struggled with mathematics.  And, no one explained to me how they were connected.  I wish the television show “Numbers” had been around when I was a kid.  Things might have gone in a completely different path if I’d been shown that light.  Oh, well!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
