Hi all.  I hope you are well.  Today we have a nice feathery offering from Warbler, with only a few bits of beak and claw to watch out for, suitable for anyone (or at least, anyone who likes anagrams) to have a go at. … Read More

Hello gridfellows, and welcome. I was all set to bring you a bare bones blog today so as not to give the gremlins much to feed on, but pictures and a video have somehow found their way in regardless.… Read More

We’re now into Crimbo Limbo, the hiatus between waving farewell to the last scrap of turkey and the breaking of the first New Year’s resolution, so many solvers should have plenty of leisure time to tackle the Toughie – this one, however, shouldn’t take very long at all.… Read More

Hello from a sultry South Kensington.  Today, Warbler has given us a very pleasant and not very difficult puzzle to enjoy.  It’s one for the anagram lovers: there are no less than ten whole or partial ones if I’ve counted correctly.… Read More

Hello and welcome to another Tuesday.  They do come round very regularly.  I shouldn’t have been surprised: after all it was Monday all day yesterday.

Warbler has given us a Toughie which is very much on the gentle side, with plenty of musical content. … Read More
