Focus! - 10/16/13

Sometimes I start a puzzle only to be distracted by other things.  More often, though, I find that a good puzzle can distract me from the other things I should be doing.  As mystery author Lawrence Block blogged recently:  "Nothing so spurs one’s creative energy as the need to avoid essential work."    I wonder how many folks reading this today have found that to be true? 
Whatever the task, today's puzzle from Canada's Alberta province reminds us how important it is to:


Tomorrow, another from Alberta.

The Bigger the Better - 10/10/13

The first geocaching event I attended was a 10/10/10 celebration held by the honoree of today's puzzle.  It's hard to believe that was already three years ago now.   The event was exceptionally fun,  because a puzzle (which I featured previously) published during it, and I collaborated with some folks to get the solve and make the find right then.  Today's central New York puzzle is:

Vanelle's Golden Ammo (The Bigger, The Better #5)

Fillomino - 10/7/13

Today's puzzle from Germany is an example of a puzzle type I came across recently while testing a puzzle for a friend.  You can easily google-translate what is written for the rules given below the puzzle itself.  I just love the German word for puzzle, "r├Ątsel."   To me it sounds like "pretzel" which is a great description for many of the puzzles we have to untangle.  Have some fun with:
