"I have a ..." - 1/16/17

I chose today's Luxembourg puzzle in commemoration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.  Although it's a U.S. holiday, all around the world people know about the man who said:

"I have a ..."

*Special note:  I'm pretty sure that one piece of information (which does not affect the solution) is incorrect, or at least out of date.

I've been going back and looking for more puzzles by CO's whose work I remember enjoying in the past.   Today we travel to Utah for:

When in Rome ... 1/13/17

Today's Ohio puzzle was another one that landed in my inbox for testing over the holidays.  As tricky as it was for me to solve, I expect it was even trickier to set up. Perhaps I'll have a chance to find it some day:

Testing ... 1/12/17

Today's California puzzle is one that I tested over the holidays.  I enjoy the testing process, which can vary quite a bit from puzzle to puzzle.  Sometimes I just provide verification that the puzzle works the way the CO thinks it does and there are no mistakes or ambiguities.  Other times the process is more involved and the puzzle's final form looks quite different than it did to start with.   Today's puzzle came to me in just the form you see it here, although it was un-named at the time.  I had to grin when I saw that the CO ended up naming it the:

Best.Puzzle.Ever

Tomorrow, another puzzle I tested recently.

License Plate Game - 1/11/17

Today's California puzzle has been around for quite a while, but I hadn't come across it until I started looking for a puzzle with a license plate theme.  I recently special-ordered a license-plate t-shirt for my brother-in-law who has a personalized license plate, thinking it would be fun for him to have a t-shirt to match.   I don't actually have a geocaching license plate (I've seen them in the parking lot at geo-events and thought they were quite fun) but decided to get myself a shirt as well.


Hope you'll enjoy playing the:

One Space or Two? - 1/10/17

Today's puzzle takes us to the Czech Republic.  I was reading recently that I'm apparently showing my age every time I type a sentence.  See, I just did it again.  "Back in the day" I was taught to always put two spaces after the period at the end of a sentence.  And I always do it.  Always.  Even when I'm texting.  Apparently in many circles this style of typing is considered hopelessly out of step.  I guess it's all relative ... I remember thinking it was pretty funny when my I noticed my Dad always typed a lower case "L" instead of a number "1" ... turns out the typewriter he learned on didn't have a number 1 key.  I hope you'll forgive me for continuing to use two spaces even if I now know "better."  I guess I have just grown accustomed to the extra:
