Answer:  INVENTORY

(I love the historical ones!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles look new to me.  Nice job on the answer letter layout.  No giveaways.  The cartoon shows quite an array of Edison’s inventions.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  ADD-ONS

(No new clue words today.  All the jumbles but “dagapo” are new to me.  Another short answer.  Great cartoon.  The guy with the laurel wreath looks a little like Charlie Sheen!  Be well and do good, friends.)    —   YUR

Answer:  DIG IN

(This is actually a really great feeling.  After expending a lot of energy and time, to a largely physical endeavor,  you  work up a genuinely deserved appetite.  Your meal is your reward, because you really appreciate it.  This is pure satisfaction.

We have yet another new clue word today!  Surprisingly, “aisle” was not in the ralis95 clue word database.  But, it soon will be.  All the jumbles came up as new for me.  It took me a few minutes to figure out “magnum”.  Not a lot can be said of such a short answer letter layout, but it was good.  The cartoon makes me envious.  I was shoveling more snow this morning, and I hear we’re getting more in a couple of days!  Ay yi yi!  At this rate we won’t be able to plant anything until June!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  EVIDENT

(Wow!  I completely struggled with the two 6-letter words today.  As it turns out, the word “caviar” is new to the Jumble!  ralis95 has a new word for his world famous clue word database.  I finally saw that word on my own, but I ended up backing into “census”, which is ironic, since I worked on the 2010 U.S. Census.  The answer letter layout was fine, but I was able to figure out the answer without the last two letters.  I’m a little surprised they didn’t go with EVI-“DENT”.  Nice slice of life cartoon.  Jeff will be going through this himself, soon enough!  Be well and do good friends.)   —   YUR

English: Thecount

Answer:  REVAMP IT

(A wonderfully stinky pun!  Lots to like.  No new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up new for me.  The answer letter layout is really very good, especially for the size of the answer.  But, considering the letters and the question’s set up, it was pretty obvious that the second word was “IT”.  After that, it didn’t take too much to come up with “REVAMP”.  The cartoon is great!  Dracula as a corporate blood-sucker . . . hiring a PR firm . . . employing focus groups.  Very funny.  Be well . . . B + and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MEGA-“BYTES

(Slow down there, pal!  Chew your food thoroughly.  Remember.  If a geek chokes, alone in his mother’s basement . . . does it make a sound???  There IS a new clue word today, in “cosmos”.  So, that and “obsug” also come up as new jumbles.  We’ve definitely already seen “sayte” and “cannue”, but they are all good clue words.  The answer letter layout does a better than fair job of hiding the answer.  It took me a little time to get this one.  Good, goofy cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
