Great reminders on important parts of the educational system. It's interesting how the system managed to fit even the longest words into a horizontal or vertical alignment, and only used the diagonal for one word. An important word, to be sure, but it wasn't even the longest one. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Review of Silvery Flowers  
Rated: 18+ | (3.0)
I'm afraid I'm having trouble seeing the picture you're painting. I took a look at the previous entries, so I have some idea of the characters, but I just don't get it. Lysele can obviously teleport herself and she appears to be a guide of some sort but, for me at this particular time, there just isn't enough context to say anything more. I'm sorry.

Review of Sommeren  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Sussan knows what she wants and is willing to do whatever she must in order to achieve her goal, which is to live her last summer where the air is clean and she can enjoy what's left of her life. I really like how you wove in the little details of mountain life in Norway. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Thank you so much for the puzzle, Tina! While you don't directly control the size of the framework for one of these, by choosing the words you did, you ensured a large-scale puzzle. That allows the system to utilize more red herring-type letters and makes it more fun for those trying to solve the puzzle.

This is a very cool take on the whole Schrödinger's cat experiment. It even has a hint of "Why did the chicken cross the road?" thrown in. I like how you started the poem, then restarted it towards the end, albeit just a bit differently. I also liked how you described the descending/ascending nature of his atoms ("...living and dying decaying and thriving..."). Thanks for sharing this.

Review of I will remember  
Rated: E | (5.0)
A sad remembrance of a childhood friend's loss in time of war. You are absolutely right, Constance; peacekeepers do die trying to maintain what is usually a very fragile peace. After all, if everyone agreed that the war should be ended, where would be the need? It's hard enough to visit the grave of a family member or friend, so I liked how you used joyful aspects of nature to help lighten the mood. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Review of The List  
Rated: E | (4.5)
A "designated shopper" for Bigfoot? I love it! And this process would work - contactless delivery - even outside the pandemic. I liked how you set up the list's location, too. It reminded me of Scout and Jem finding items in that tree's knothole in To Kill A Mockingbird. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Review of Virtue Of Love  
Rated: E | (4.5)
There's a saying: "Only those you love can hurt you." In high school, I gave a girl a poem; she told me she already had a boyfriend. A year or so later, I invited a girl I'd known since middle school to my house for dinner; on the way home, she told me she was getting engaged. I'd already been shy around girls before these heart-crushing events, but the pain I felt was something new.
Your letter expresses very well the inward-turning that kind of pain causes, and how hard it is to 'face front' again. Opening yourself up to love again means opening yourself up to possibly getting hurt again, and it takes real determination and trust to do it. Your letter expresses that, too.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

Thanks for the fun Word Search, Jen!

That was a sad, bad day, and that's a fact. You want to protest the way things are going? Fine. Put on your boots and pick up your 1st Amendment sign. You want to go out of your way to harm and destroy, like rioters you would have stopped back in the day? As LtCdr Worf would likely say: "You are without honor."
Thanks for sharing this with us.

Another fine way to spend a few cross-eyed minutes! Thanks, Jenn Webster!

I found them all, Jen, although for some reason, Ice Cream and Water ice didn't change form to crossed-out, when I highlighted them. The puzzle turned green, though, so that's the main thing! Thanks for setting this up for us!

Hi, Jenn! I enjoyed this entry in your Word Search group. RESPONSIBILITY is a nice long word, yielding many possibilities for anagrams. I like the ones you selected for the puzzle. Linotypes and biotypes, for example, don't make appearances in common written works these days, so it's nice to see them here. Thanks for sharing this with us!

A nice little tribute to the moms of the site, and a bit of fun for all of us to enjoy. I certainly think my mom, and my wife, fully deserving of a holiday, so it's a very good thing Mother's Day is on the calendar! Thanks for creating and sharing this with us.

Hi, Jenn Webster! Thank you so much for setting up this little word finder for us. I've always enjoyed making and solving puzzles like this, so finding your pointer in the Newsfeed was my nice surprise for the morning.

"Herald" is a great starting point. The only down side is that, with only six letters, the site-created grid is going to be on the small side, making the words fairly easy to find and reducing the challenge a bit.

That said, anyone who takes the time to create something for everyone else to read and/or do deserves to be commended. Today - that's you!

Hi, KÃ¥re! I came across this item in the Random Reads and, with the basic title plus the description, I just knew I had to check it out [The Moody Blues were my wife's favorite group, and this album was possibly her favorite]. You're right: it's funny, what current event or stimulus will spark a memory of long ago. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thank you so much for setting this up for us, Tina -Happy Fall- ; I really enjoyed it! I especially love the Scriptural background to your word choices. Thanks again!

Means. Motive. Opportunity. Iffy friends, at best; railways to disaster-in-waiting most times. Great story, Nick. I loved how you wove in the backstory--getting caught and lectured by "the old whingers", Steve's dad and how he shared his knowledge (and, thereby, becoming unknowingly complicit in your random acts of fun *BigSmile*), etc. From my own childhood escapades, I certainly know the feeling of having gotten away with something; unfortunately, I'm also familiar with the other side of the coin. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Well, some of these took a little research, and a format malfunction caused a little confusion, but I got it done! Thanks for setting it up for us!

These are wonderful Merit Badges and trinkets, Princess Megan Rose ! Thank you so much for allowing us to collect them. My oldest daughter was also a Pokey Puppy fan, and I've always enjoyed Glen Campbell's singing and playing [I love the YouTube video of him playing the finale to the "William Tell Overture"], and personally, I thought he did a fine job in True Grit. Thanks again for sharing your collection!

Review of Lake Michigan  
Rated: E | (5.0)
What a beautiful story, and what a wonderful memory for you and your family. I've stood on the shores of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, but I've only seen Lake Michigan from the highway. Thanks for sharing this bit of family history with us, and have a wonderful evening.

Well, I knew some of these and was able to figure out a couple more via crossing letters, but Wikipedia had to help me out with more than a few. Regarding 16 Down, I would have thought the clue would read something like "Which animal do Japanese not consider as good luck?", but I could be mistaken. At any rate, I enjoyed your puzzle. Thanks for sharing it!

You do a wonderful job detailing some of Braxten's behaviors and triggers. His being mostly non-verbal absolutely makes it difficult for you and his family to interact with him in ways that lift him up and encourage him, but also to instill even basic behaviors (e.g. "Thank you"). It's fantastic that he's incorporating that learning into his life, and I know it just has to be one of the most heartwarming things you could ever experience to have him tell you "Wuv you", prompted or not. Thank for sharing this glimpse in your relationship with your special lil man.

I hope this article has gotten a lot of views, and that each viewer read all the way to the end (those subject to U.S. tax laws, anyway). I used to work Customer Service in the Self-Directed IRA department at a financial services company, and I reviewed the basics with current and prospective clients on a daily basis. More than a few of them would benefit from your article.

Thanks for the puzzle! I never heard of Cut Rock; maybe it has another name or is more a regional treat. Anyway, it was fun looking. Thanks again!
