Holiday, Thursday 12 Nov 2015, No Paper

No CW in the paper as well as in the online edition

Detox today without the daily fix.


  1. Day is not complete without cw:(

  2. But today the last page is full of Life! Enjoy!
    On some days it may have half or quarter Life. On some other days the Page might be DoA.

  3. Yoo hoo. Fantastic. No cw.good for health

    1. Suresh,
      Did you tread more on the mill?

  4. Today's "Missing Crossword" reminds me of a "Missing Wife" joke :

    A husband went to the police station to file a "missing person" report about his missing wife:

    Husband: I lost my wife, she went shopping & hasn't come back yet.

    Inspector: Describe her please.

    Husband: Female......

    Inspector: What is her height?

    Husband: I never checked.

    Inspector: Slim or healthy?

    Husband: Not slim can be healthy.

    Inspector: Color of eyes?

    Husband: Never noticed.

    Inspector: Color of hair?

    Husband: Changes according to season.

    Inspector: What was she wearing?

    Husband: Not sure whether it was a dress or a suit.

    Inspector: Was she driving?

    Husband : Yes.

    Inspector : Describe the car, please.

    Husband: Black Audi A8 with supercharged 3.0 litre V6 engine generating 333 horse power teamed with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission with manual mode.And it has full LED headlights,which use light emitting diodes for all light functions and has a very thin scratch on the front left door.….and then the husband started crying...



    Inspector: Don't worry sir,... . .We will find your car.
