A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg; apparently summer is here, but, so far, it has been wet and windy, and somewhat on the cool side.

Another very enjoyable puzzle, with Virgilius back in a benevolent frame of mind, which I tackled with my usual diligence – the usual handful of anagrams (including a pair of partials), a lurker, a homophone (both not in the hints), a double definition, and a  few oldies but goodies/recent repeats. … Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg.

Another very enjoyable puzzle with Virgilius back in a tricky frame of mind – the usual handful of anagrams (including a few partials), a lurker, and a (brilliant) double homophone, with one or two oldies but goodies/recent repeats. … Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where we have had some very welcome rain in the last couple of days.

Another very enjoyable puzzle with Virgilius in a more benevolent frame of mind compared to the last couple of Sundays. … Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where we are enjoying temperatures in the high 20s (above the seasonal average of low 20s) but windy with gusts around 30 mph, we even had a record breaking 34 degrees on Friday.… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg where Mother Nature is still being very kind to us – and a very Happy Birthday to Mary. 

Another very enjoyable, but perhaps not so typical, Sunday offering that is probably the trickiest Virgilius puzzle that I have had to solve and blog since I took over the Sunday spot from BD back in February, with a handful of anagrams (including partials), a couple of lurkers, and what I thought was a slightly odd homophone element to one of the answers.… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg.  This weekend, (most of) Canada is celebrating Queen Victoria’s birthday with a holiday tomorrow.  These days the historical significance of the holiday is probably overtaken by using it as an excuse to eat more burgers, hot dogs, etc., and drink more beer – as if Canadians actually need an excuse to undertake those activities.… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, the sun is shining and the birds are singing – life is good.

Another very enjoyable and very typical Sunday puzzle from Virgilius, back in a benevolent mood (for me); a handful of anagrams, a homophone, and a lurker.… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, where it is beginning to get much warmer and we are not having the rain and flooding being experienced in Ontario and Québec.

Another very enjoyable and very typical Sunday puzzle from Virgilius, but, for me, he is not in as benevolent a mood as the last couple of weeks; half a dozen anagrams (including a couple of partials), a couple of double definitions, a homophone, and a pair of lurkers (including one in reverse).… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg, back home after spending the work week in Calfornia.

Another very enjoyable and very typical Sunday puzzle from Virgilius.  Once again, I thought he was in a benevolent frame of mind; half a dozen anagrams, a couple of double definitions, a single lurker, and that board game making another ‘appearance.’

My favourite is 1d.… Read More

Good Sunday morning from Winnipeg on this St George’s Day – thanks to BD for the Rose in the banner.  The weather is still crazy here; 17 degrees and sunshine on Friday, 3 degrees and mixed precipitation (a.k.a.… Read More
