Hello, it’s me again.  Tilsit is keeping the trains running once again or sorting out problems because of the strikes.

For the last five Saturdays we have had Cephas pangrams, so I was expecting a Floughie Lady production today but we have another pangram, detected very early on for me, so I must conclude that it is the sixth Cephas puzzle in a row.… Continue reading
