A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg – more wintry weather this week, with increasing amounts of soft fluffy white stuff.

Another typically excellent Virgilius puzzle in which he has returned to benevolence (at least I think so); the usual handful of anagrams, including partials, and only one lurker.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg – some wild, even wintry weather this week – as shown by my car on Thursday morning – with more in the forecast.

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where this week the weather has been ‘all over the map’ – very windy on Wednesday (not quite Ophelia or Brian levels) 40 mph with gusts to 50 mph, and a record 24.3 degrees on Friday.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where, in the early hours of yesterday morning, we had some precipitation of the soft fluffy white variety; fortunately, it had all disappeared by mid-morning.

Virgilius back to being quite tricky with, I thought, some ‘synonym stretching.’ Nevertheless, another very enjoyable puzzle, the usual handful of anagrams, including partials, one lurker, and one homophone.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where last week I had my flu shot, and it worked, this week I had the flu; hot toddies and ‘stuff’ from the pharmacy appear to have worked, but, as a precaution I will continue with the hot toddies for a few more days. … Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where it is beginning to be quite autumnal, the wind blowing the leaves off the trees and zero degrees to start the day on Friday.

Virgilius in a benevolently tricky frame of mind today, there were two clues that were holding out on me, with some misdirection and obfuscation giving us another very enjoyable puzzle, the usual handful of anagrams, a homophone (we haven’t had one of those for a while), and a lurker – all in 28 clues.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg; a very very good Sunday after having a TV camera inserted in the interior of my nether regions for the ninth (plus or minus one) time on Friday – once again the search for my brain was unsuccessful, and, thankfully, so was the search for any sign of the return of the Big C.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg – Mother Nature continues to confuse us and herself, a record 34.8 degrees on Tuesday, 11 degrees and rain on Friday, and 9 degrees and rain yesterday.

For me, after a slightly slow start, Virgilius is in a benevolent frame of mind today, maybe it was the Dalwhinnie, giving us another very enjoyable puzzle, the usual handful of anagrams, including partials, and two lurkers, including one of 13 letters!… Read More
