Answers to the Smartest-2%-Puzzle
Categories: Fun Time

Two days ago I posted a logic puzzle can ‘supposedly’ be solved by only 2% of the population. I say ‘supposedly’ because I’m always suspicious of statistics and there is no way to know if this is accurate or not. But what is certain is that it’s a challenging puzzle for most people. I solved […]

Are You Among The Smartest 2%?
Categories: Fun Time

There is a very famous logic puzzle that has been around since at least 1962. There are several names for this puzzle including the “zebra puzzle” or the “Einstein puzzle”, although there is no evidence that our famous genius ever had anything to do with the puzzle.

If there is ever a “perfect”, classic Halloween pumpkin carving, this is it.

Categories: Cross Stitch Patterns, Fun Time

The typical Halloween witch is old, ugly, evil and often has a giant nose with a wart on it. But folklore and countless stories tell us that not all witches are like this.

This watercolor pumpkin, all carved for Halloween, could have been charming with its brushstrokes of pale color. Instead, he’s threatening and leering as we can see by his evil grin.

Halloween Treats Day 28: Everything A Witch Needs
Categories: Cross Stitch Patterns, Fun Time

If you like witches, and I certainly do, you will love this simple Halloween cross stitch pattern of some of a witch’s best friends. There’s even a purple hat band with a gold buckle (is it REAL gold or not? we say ‘yes’).

Halloween Treats Day 27: Terrifying Creature Claws Against The Moon
Categories: Cross Stitch Patterns, Fun Time

This isn’t a friendly and light-hearted Halloween cross stitch pattern. The sight of this clawed … something … against the moon is enough to give anyone a chill. First of all, the talons are long, sharp and clearly deadly. And notice the scales on the claws. Whatever this is, it’s clearly a predator and we have […]

Categories: Cross Stitch Patterns, Fun Time

This sinister Halloween cross stitch pattern depicts a grinning skull, and that grin isn’t a nice one! He looks as though he is anticipating some really terrible events that are coming our way. A skull isn’t a cheery sight anyway, but we’ve all seen enough of them to know that there are really creepy ones […]

Halloween Treats Day 25: Colorful Watercolor Halloween Ghost
Categories: Cross Stitch Patterns, Fun Time

This orange and gold watercolor ghost makes a great Halloween cross stitch pattern for several reasons. The main one, for me, is the color scheme.
