Love the crossword? More specifically, the New York Times Crossword? So do I! My family and friends know that I have been doing the crossword for over twenty years, and while I don’t even pretend to be in the league of some of those who compete, I do love the crossword – its themes, twists and just mental exercise on a daily basis. I’ve had friends who ask me, “Where did you learn that?” More often than not, I have said, “I learned it doing the crossword.” With that in mind, I have created this blog to highlight about three things I learn each day from working the crossword.
