It was a close call, folks!  All the entries were great, but some of them ran a little long of the 20 Words or Less requirement, as put forth in the contest post.  So, without further ado, here are the winners who will be receiving personal copies of the RALIS95 Clue Word Databases:

Cathy Anderson, Michael Felch, Vijay Natraj, Ian Gross, and our dear friend Jenn Schultz!

Thank you to all who played, or even thought of playing!  Happy Holidays to all!      YUR

(Quaint and cute.  Old Ray may not be living off of a fat pension, but at least he can supplement his income by doing odd jobs for other people his own age.  This is more likely Arizona.  Or even South Africa, I suppose.  It looks to be a heck of a lot warmer than the Hudson Valley region of New York, where it’s currently – around noon – 17° but feels like 7°.  I guess I should be happy I don’t live in International Falls, MN or Caribou, ME, but those people are accustomed to mega-frigid winters.  We’re not!  We are used to it being four or five degrees degrees above freezing, during the daytime.  We’ll survive.  But, our heating bill is going to be astronomical!

No new clue words today, but some decent jumbling.  “Misery” was the most interesting jumble.  It’s funny, the word “misery” was also prominent in the Cryptoquote today.  Fine job on the answer letter layout.  It did not give away anything.  Great cartoon, too.  No one looks cranky today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Rest in peace, Pete Seeger!  Thank you, for inspiring generations of folk singers and political activists.  Whether it was civil rights, the environment, or the anti-war effort you could always be counted on to shine the spotlight on all forms of injustice.  With a hammer, a bell and a rousing song about love between our brothers and our sisters, you have taught us all that by banding together we shall overcome . . . some day.  Peace be with you, Pete!      YUR

Big Jumble News!

Rave on

For some of you – who CAN be bothered reading the Comments section – this may already be *old* news.  But, for the rest of you, dig what one of the Jumble creators, and current Uncle Rave visitor/fan, Jeff Knurek, has imparted upon us:

Dear Uncle Rave and Jumblers…
We have some BIG news for all of you. We are sad to announce that long time Jumble co-creator, Mike Argirion, will be retiring. His last Daily Jumble will be February 26th. We wish Mike LAL HET SEBT!
With that announcement, we welcome Master Puzzle creator, David L. Hoyt, who will take the torch and along with puzzle partner, Jeff Knurek (me),and will be creating the Jumble puzzles that you all play and love. David and Jeff’s first Daily puzzle will run Feb. 28th. Please take a good look at it, for it stars Jeff, David and some other puzzle guy that some of you may recognize.
David and I have been puzzle partners for 8 years now and together are the two most syndicated puzzle creators in the world. (Sounds impressive!) The Jumble will only change for the better. We hope to remove archaic words from the word list. We also hope to challenge and entertain you with fresh new puns and fun cartoons filled with clues, special guests (David, myself and more) and things that make David and I giggle. We promise to try to use quotation marks when and where they are necessary, but will still look here to see when we goofed. I certainly have appreciated Uncle Rave’s descriptions and discussions on the Jumble (for the past three years of lurking) and look forward to the future. Keep up the great work and thank you so much for Jumbling. It’s going to get real fun!
LAL ET SEBT,
LUJBEM FEJF

Soave!
