Big Bang - 8/31/14

I used to watch a lot of TV, but it seems that over the past few years I've been watching quite a bit less.  I recently decided to try out the series featured in today's California puzzle.  It had been recommended to me by a couple of people, but I'd never watched, in part because I think I was turned off by the title (for whatever reason).  I'm glad I finally gave it a try because I am thoroughly enjoying this celebration of geekiness.  The scene with Sheldon's first Christmas present from Penny had me laughing so hard I was in tears.  But I still think they could have come up with a better title than:

The Big Bang Theory

Tomorrow we'll be in Delaware.

Where It Ends - 8/28/14

Today's California puzzle is called:

Where It Ends

... Figuring out where it ends is always a tricky thing to do.  I'm committed to keeping the blog going through the end of the year, but am starting to consider whether it will continue in 2015. 12/31/14 will mark 4 full years of GPOTD, which is a long time. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the puzzles I've featured and the many puzzlers I have met along the way, but every once in a while having deadlines to meet starts to feel like work.  Continuing might mean changing some things up a little, but I'll see how it goes and keep you posted.  I'd still love to find a guest or co-puzzle picker/blogger to work with if anyone is interested.

Tomorrow we'll be in central New York.

Whose Woods? - 8/8/14

Today's New Jersey puzzle landed in my inbox recently, and I thought it was an interesting example of how things have changed since it was originally published back in 2002.  The capability to make virtual visits anywhere in the world has rendered this one solvable from home. Put on your thinking cap and figure out:

Water Lily & Lotus Blossom - 8/6/14

On a recent lunch date with a friend, she got me to shake things up a bit.  Instead of having Chinese food (which I have often, as you may have noticed) we ate at a Vietnamese restaurant.  No fortune cookies there to inspire me, but the restaurant had a lovely lotus blossom motif, which led me to today's puzzle from Sweden:

Water lily & lotus blossom

Tomorrow we'll be in California.

P.S.  My apologies to the puzzler who recently told me that this type of puzzle is too conspicuous to solve at work.

Another Insomniac - 8/1/14

I don't know if geocachers are more susceptible to insomnia than other folks (maybe we're lying awake thinking about geocaching puzzles?), but here's a puzzle from France that I came across after I posted the one with that same theme last week:
