Enjoy Life Every Day - 7/26/22

 Today's puzzle takes us to California.  This time next week it will be August, which means back to school will be just around the corner.  Where does the time go?  We've had a beautiful summer here in the Finger Lakes and rather than looking ahead too far and thinking about what's to come I'm determined to:

"Evil Influence" - 7/22/22

Today we head to Ireland for a puzzle from a series I first featured here many years ago.  I recently had a message referencing an article about the Masyu type of logic puzzle, and asking if I was familiar with it.  I have seen them regularly in (non-geocaching) puzzlehunts, but am not sure if I've featured one here before.  Try your luck with:

New Tricks - 7/19/22

Today's puzzle takes us back to Canada's Alberta province. In pursuit of something not too heavy/dark to watch I stumbled across the British detective show "New Tricks" on Hulu.  I've enjoyed the characters and the writing, and another plus is that not every other word is ... colorful ... like in many of the streaming shows I've tried lately (I find that my vocabulary deteriorates if I watch too much of that ilk).  As I encroach on "old dog" territory myself, it's good to see that:

Stem & Leaf - 7/9/22

You never know when something is going to come in handy for a geocaching puzzle. Today's South Carolina puzzle involves a bit of math I'd not encountered until seeing it while tutoring a few years ago, and haven't had the occasion to use it since:

Smart Kids Get Ice Cream - 7/5/22

Today we travel to California for a puzzle from a decade ago.  This one is very memorable for me because after making a start on it but not getting anywhere I had the "aha" moment while driving back from dropping my son off at scout camp.  I couldn't wait to get home and see if I was right about:
