Games in bed

All very innocent, don't panic!
Every morning I get up first and make a tea for myself and a coffee for my wife and take them back to bed. We then spend a bit of time doing a crossword and word puzzles together. Just thought I would relate what happened the other day. All the games are on a MacBook Air or iPad and after the crossword we do a daily puzzle called Full Rainbow. It's a jumble of seven letters and you are against the clock to work out the seven letter word. Hit the button and after about two seconds we both called out - ANAGRAM. We thought that was a little interesting that the answer to an anagram was the word anagram. Moved on to the day's Wordle. We always start with the same word as it uses four of the five vowels, AUDIO. Guess what, that was the answer.

Just a bit of fun

Paging Dr. Newton, Paging Dr. Newton.. There is a pun awaiting your attention.

“No persons are more frequently wrong, than those who will not admit they are wrong.” -- François de La Rochefoucauld

"Those who cannot accept the past are condemned to revise it." -- Geo. Mathias

The German word for contraceptive is “Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel”. By the time you finished saying that, it’s too late

"We then spend a bit of time doing a crossword and word puzzles together"

So that's what they're calling it these days!

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

wait until he tells us what Boggle really means!

"Defending your own life when in immediate danger to me is a basic right of each person. " Lemon Drop 11/17/2023 03:10 pm

Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) Private citizens have the right under the Second Amendment to possess an ordinary type of weapon and use it for lawful, historically established situations such as self-defense in a home, even when there is no relationship to a local militia.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner." Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-seventh Congress, Second Session. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1982. Digitized September 30, 2008.

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."
