Welcome to the Wednesday blog. Before getting down to business, let me give you a brief background about myself. I am a retired engineer living in Ottawa, Canada as well as a relative newcomer to cryptic crosswords, having taken up the pastime (to which I quickly became addicted) only a couple of years ago, following my retirement. However, I do have a fairly solid foundation, having been a longtime solver of regular crossword puzzles. Furthermore, my training has been greatly accelerated by closely following a number of British cryptic crossword sites, in particular, this one.
