Why not start with a challenge. 

We've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time we've

seen it with numbers.  Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this 

OUT LOUD you have a strong mind.  And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long

long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

COVID - 19  --  UP DATE

When this quarantine is over, let's  not tell some  people.

The spread of Covid - 19 is dependent on two factors.

       1. How dense the population is -- and 

        2. How dense the population is. 


Elizabeth Gaskell in her first novel, "Mary Barton,' wrote, "There is always pleasure in unraveling a mystery.  Finding the single, gossamer clue that leads to the solution."  Join hundreds thousands,  well at least hundreds of mystery solvers in my mystery corner.

  • Persons of the Month

    There are so many of you who are doing so much for so many of us. We thank you! Stay safe.  Proud to be an American.

    Can't change this.  Mahalo, Merci, García's to all. 

  • Horses Ass Award

    The scum who are using this pandemic for personal gain. I vote we reinstitute the public pillory.  What do you think?


    The people at ISSUE who attached advertising to my children stories.  Boo and Hiss.  Write your own stories.  You've also stolen the  incredible art work of Donna Yan and Stacy Gee.

  • Puzzle Lovers Only

    QUARINTINE!  I'm not bored but I wonder why there were 7337 kernels of rice in one bag and only 7328 in the other.

    Now for the right, quick mind might find out what is so  unusual about the following paragraph.

    It looks so ordinary that many think nothing is wrong at  all. In fact, nothing is wrong with it at all. It is unusual. But why? Study it if you will.  Think about it. You may find a solution. I cannot assist in any way. No coaching. Work on it. If you do, a solution may dawn on you. Who knows?

    I know you can do it.

    And when you do please email me.

  • My Inconclusive Travel Plans for 2020

    I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

    I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

    I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work. I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

    I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

    I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

    Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

    One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

    I may have been in Continent, but I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

  • Say What???

    Bored? Want to have  fun with a friend or your children?  Try this during the next lull in the conversation.  

    Have everyone pick a number.  You don't care what  number.  Though so many people can no longer add or subtract without calculator you may suggest any number from one to twenty.   -- You may need to supply pencil and paper to the college graduates.

    1. Pick a number from 1 to  10.

    2. Double  it

    3. Add 10

    4. Divide by two. (watch your friends dissolve during this step)

    5. Subtract the number you started with.

    6. Now make  a big TA DA.

    7. And everyone's answer will be 5 -- isn't  that crazy!  

    Email me for more on this.
