Nope. It Ain't. - 4/21/12

Getting ready to go see Meryl Streep's Academy Award winning performance in the "Iron Lady," I was curious if I could find a puzzle with her work as the theme.  In the process I learned that one English translation of  the Dutch word "streepjes" is "dashes."  Interesting, but not relevant here.  There may well be one out there, but all I came across was, from Prince Edward Island:

What? It Ain't Meryl?

Tax Day Cache - 4/17/12

 Usually, "Tax Day" is April 15th, but due to falling on a Sunday and Monday being the legal holiday  "Emancipation Day" in Washington, D.C., this year it falls today.  Note that today's puzzle from Washington state offers a nice annual prize rather than just the traditional FTF incentive.  I can certainly understand why an accountant would place a:

Hunting for Easter/Eggs - 4/8/12

Did you know that the Easter bunny is a geocacher?  Well, at least the one who visits our house is.
