Relative Difficulty - 11/15/23

Today's Florida puzzle was chosen and written up by Ol'Fogie:

The "true" difficulty rating for a puzzle cache is often debated. What is simple to one solver is a completely foreign concept to another. Left-brain vs right-brain, male vs female, experienced vs novice, concrete vs abstract… many factors come into play which makes the difficulty of a solve a very relative thing. One of the biggest factors is that the puzzle is the creation of someone who already knows the answer. So, of course, puzzle makers always think they created…

I've been pretty busy lately so I'm running another post written by Ol'Fogie:

For most of my life I thought the title of the very popular song, "The Ballroom Blitz" by British glam rock band The Sweet, was "Barroom Blitz." (Check out the YouTube vid here.) That has nothing to do with today's puzzle except that since I first started working on it, the cache dialogue got the song stuck in my head. Anyway, improper breaches of etiquette can get one…

Gimme a break! - 10/8/23

It's the time of year when a lot of schools are having a "fall break" (mine isn't for another week), but this Vermont puzzle was featured here 5 years ago today:


An article by Neal Simon of the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin was carried in our local paper this week. The descriptions caught my eye because they were really "colorful."  Here's a sample, regarding foliage in the Adirondacks:  "Look for a bright display of maize, banana, daffodil, clementine, mustard, yam, burnt sienna, ginger, beet, rhubarb, raspberry, paprika, and pimento-colored leaves of above average brilliance."  So If you're thinking about going leaf peeping, the prime time is getting close!

Today we travel to California for a brand new puzzle involving:


Well, I felt like a real dope when I realized that in my efforts to get ahead of things for the weekend I had actually ended up sending yesterday's post early.  It's becoming very obvious that I have too much on my plate these days to keep doing this effectively.  This isn't the only evidence that I need to cut back on some things ... on Friday I was so tired by the time I left work that I left my purse in my office and when I finally realized what I had done, I had to make an hour's round-trip drive back to get it on Saturday night.  I am going to do my best to keep going through the end of the year, but there may be more reruns than usual.  After 13 years I may have to call it a day at the first of the year.  But if there is anyone (or more than one person) who would be interested in trying to help me keep the blog going, please let me know.  It would be hard to let it go, and I would be disappointed, but we've had a good run.

Ca Chauffe! - 7/14/23

I set up yesterday's post late enough that I got confused about what day it was and marked it for 7/14.  In doing so, I was sorry I hadn't done anything with a French theme, for the big Bastille Day holiday.  Imagine my surprise when I realized I had skipped a day ahead and would have the chance to do that after all.  I haven't solved any puzzles in France lately, so I thought I would take the opportunity to revisit one from a CO whose puzzles I always enjoyed.  Many of them are interactive and best done with other people, which led to some fun collaborations.  Try your luck with this one, first featured here back in 2014:
