For Grammie - 11/20/13

Today's puzzle from New York's Long Island got me thinking about my own "Grammie," and wondering what she would think of all the technology we have today.  She never even had the opportunity to use a cordless phone let alone a "smart" one.  This one is in honor of all the wonderful "Grammies" out there:

No, No - Grammie

Tomorrow, another from Long Island.

The In-Crowd - 11/18/13

I was recently perusing certitude and came across this California puzzle.  Since I knew who exactly who it referred to, I decided to check it out.  In doing so, I discovered that there is new entry in the mystery series written by The Rat.  I haven't had a chance to read it yet (I have it on good authority it will be waiting for me under the tree on Christmas morning) but I decided I shouldn't wait to congratulate the author and feature another of his fun crossword puzzles here.  See if you can break into:
