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.

Lots to enjoy as is usual for a Sunday morning – at the time of solving I only marked one clue for favouritism so I’ll stick with that – 5d taking the top spot this week.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg – signs of autumn this week, two mornings where we started off in low single digit temperatures; but, today, we have a forecast high of 30 degrees so it is all rather confusing.… Read More

On the day this was published, I said that it was one of those puzzles where I really wished it was my turn to do the review, but that I’d probably get into trouble with the favourites police person as I had so many clues vying for the gold medal spot.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg on ‘the day that war broke out’ 78 years ago.

After Mister Ron’s Toughie yesterday, Virgilius has returned to benevolence while still giving us another very enjoyable puzzle, the usual handful of anagrams, including two partials, and two lurkers.… Read More

A very good Sunday morning from Winnipeg; a flying visit to San Antonio, Texas this week, with thankfully trouble-free travel and decent weather. I feel sorry for those feeling the wrath of Hurricane Harvey this weekend, but happy that I am not still there.… Read More
