Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/29/14

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”   —   Stephen Covey

(I think it’s very ironic how “religious” people love to espouse the concept of “free will”.  Very little of what we do in our lives is really a matter of free will.  We are all cultivated from birth – some of us even earlier – to think, and behave, in certain acceptable ways.  There are both pros and cons to this kind of cultivation.  Ostensibly, the pros outweigh the cons, but that is really here nor there.  Most of us will carry on, and pass on, the various values we have been taught, as a matter of heritage and tradition.  It’s reassuring and comforting to us.  It’s one less thing to worry about in a world full of trepidation and uncertainty.  But, the world is also full of encouragement and beauty.  The more we can concentrate on these positives the more we can break free of the constraints of our conditioning.  Therein lies the path to true free will.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Mythological vanity.

BNEDL  =  BLEND,  IDOVA  =  AVOID,  SEHEYC  =  CHEESY,  ARACEM  =  CAMERA   —   Giving us:  BDAIDHYARA

Clue/Question:  When Medusa was bitten on the neck, she had a – – -

Answer:  BAD HAIR DAY

(For Medusa, every day was a bad hair day!  We have a new clue word today, in “cheesy”.  ralis95 can add it to his clue word database!  It looks like all the jumbles are new today, as well.  I really liked the jumbling of “avoid”.  The answer letter layout was alright, but would have been better had “blend” and “avoid” been switched.  The cartoon is a lot of fun.  Note the broken mirror, as gazing upon herself would be fatal.  But, also the hand cultivator as a “hair” brush, and the can of snake “hair”spray.  Great stuff, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings a happy death.”   —   Leonardo da Vinci

(Endeavor to be productive, people.  It doesn’t have to be world-changing headline kinda stuff.  Just do what you do . . . well.  And, do it with a sense of pride.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  There were SO many related articles on Leonardo da Vinci!  It’s a shame that Zemanta/WordPress limits us to 10.  Hopefully, you’ll enjoy some of the ones I selected.     YUR

The world is my country, all mankind my brethren and to do good is my religion.”   —   Thomas Paine

(When you’re feeling like a jingoistic turd, you would do well to remember this great quote from this great man.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Belated) Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/23/14

There cannot be a crisis next week.  My schedule is already full.”   —   Henry Kissinger

(A surprisingly amusing quote from . . . the dark one!  Actually, there’s more than a hint of arrogance that accompanies that witty bon mot.  But, we can just let it go as humorous.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house.”   —   Rod Stewart

(I actually remember when he made this comment.  I loved it then, and I love it now.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/25/14

Fame usually comes to those who are thinking about something else.”   —   Oliver Wendell Holmes

(This should probably be changed from usually to traditionally.  Nowadays, too many people make it their reason for living . . . to be famous.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
