A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, where we have had another heatwave with temperatures in the thirties and heat indexes in the forties..

Keep staying safe everyone. 

For me, Dada benevolent with some Hmms, some oldies but goodies, and a repetition radar blip – I counted four anagrams, one lurker, and three homophones – all in an almost symmetric 28 clues, with 16 hints ‘sprinkled’ throughout the grid you should be able to get the checkers to enable the solving of the unhinted clues. … Continue reading

Greetings to what has been termed Super Saturday. Not in this part of Warrington for me. No trip to the pub, no trips to the hairdressers, etc. etc. Pretty much stay at home and manage as usual. Continue reading “DT 29407 (Hints)”

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, where we started the week with a three day mini-heatwave which came to an end with an appropriately mini thunderstorm on Wednesday afternoon.

Keep staying safe everyone. 

Dada returning to benevolence this week with some oldies but goodies and some repetition radar blips – I counted five anagrams, one lurker, and no homophones – all in an almost symmetric 30 clues, with 16 hints ‘sprinkled’ throughout the grid you should be able to get the checkers to enable the solving of the unhinted clues.… Continue reading

Greetings from downtown Warrington. Today’s Saturday Prize puzzle is quite topical and may well hit some headlines. There’s a convention in some puzzles, most notably the Times, that living people are not featured in their puzzles, with the exception of The Queen. So, 30 across is rather a nice clue and a nice tribute. And 3 down is also rather topical! Continue reading “DT 29395 (Hints)”

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, where we have had a few days that were more like early Spring, in terms of temperature and precipitation, than late Spring/early Summer.

Keep staying safe everyone. 

Dada crossing the boundary into quirky this week with quite a few Hmms – I counted eight anagrams, all of which required deletions, additions, or insertions, one lurker, and no homophones – all in an almost symmetric 30 clues, with 17 hints ‘sprinkled’ throughout the grid you should be able to get the checkers to enable the solving of the unhinted clues.… Continue reading

Greetings from Warrington where I am still locked down after suffering a slight relapse this week. I am once again on the mend, but earlier in the week was left feeling slightly under the weather and with an irritating eye infection. However, all seems better now.

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, where, after 10 weeks of solving and hinting complete puzzles, I am quite relieved to get back to only having to solve half of the clues to be able to do the hints.… Continue reading

Hello everyone

Thank you for your recent kind wishes about my health. I am feeling much better and think I have been rather lucky to have had a fairly mild dose of the wretched virus. Continue reading “DT 29383 (Hints)”
