Greetings from the tropical land of Warrington.

Here we go with another Saturday morning challenge, and this is quite a challenge. This certainly took a little longer than usual and requires a little more knowledge than many of the recent puzzles. Continue reading “DT 29437 (Hints)”

Here we go with another Saturday challenge.

I felt the difficulty rate was slightly up today, with the top left corner slightly trickier than the rest of the grid. Continue reading “DT 29431 (Hints)”

Good morning everyone from Warrington!

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)”
