Correct, that is "The Shadow." I believe the drawing is from the old pulp novels cover art. There was film made in the '90s with Alec Baldwin. It was decent but I don't think it did blockbuster level business. Orson Wells narrated the old radio program. You can find them to listen to on-line via fan sites.

Need help solving a word problem

Need to change the word READ to NOTE in 6 moves.

Can anyone help?

I was able to go from READ to NOTE in 6 steps. Hint: for my solution, I changed one of the vowels in READ to a different letter, and then kept the N of NOTE for that word's first change. There may be other routes, of course.

Hello Everyone! Yes it's me, CC. Got in a car accident awhile back. Was not fun. I broke my back and my leg in two places. Spent two weeks in the hospital (that was the worse part). Anyway since I can't sit at my computer my friends chipped in and got me a lap top. How nice was that? Well now I can communicate with the outside world I just can't go outside yet. I'm improving but not as fast as I would like, I'm not a very patient person and from what I heard from the nurses I was an even lousier patient. Oh well, life goes on. It's great to be back and have some people to talk to. I'm pretty bored just lying here but I've done a great many puzzles! Hope everyone is well! CC

Hope you start feeling a little bit better, day by day, CC. Great that your friends got you the laptop computer. You know we're all rooting for you.

I have been searching for a community of like-minded puzzlers... I couldn't find anything on Facebook, so I recently started a group... link is in my profile.

(don't mean to break any forum rules, so if inappropriate, just let me know and I will delete)

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome to the forum, Brian. When I saw a whole lot of posts by one person today, I knew it was a new member who just found the forum and read all the posts. I remember when I first saw the forum, I threw in a lot of comments (and have been doing so ever since). It's cool to get younger members of the forum, too, because some of us are old enough to receive Social Security.

Tried your link and then realized too late that it deals with Facebook, with which I do NOT deal. But I hope some of the other forum members, who might use Facebook or have no objection to joining Facebook, can try your site and see what it's like.

Hi Brian! Welcome aboard! I used to live in Virginia myself (I was born there and spent much of my childhood there) and love to go back every year or two for a week to visit.

As far as solving, I'm being a bit adventurous right now, working a book of Slitherlink from Nikoli, the Trigons book that Purple Pisces recommended from DJAPE (they feel more challenging than the ones found in Dell magazines), and the latest Math & Logic Problems edition. Splitting my time during the various portions of my commute and making some headway on all of them right now, which feels good.

I just picked up the Math & Logic Puzzle magazine... never really worked with those before. Wanted to start on them last night, but don't think I can work those puzzles with the TV on... smile

I hear you! While some of them I can do pretty easily, when I get to some puzzles, like Logic Problems, I have to mute the music on my headphones while I work it out (I normally solve on the train during my commute). I need that extra little ability to focus. Enjoy!

I agree with you guys that it's hard to do logic problems, where you have to concentrate, when any distractions are running in the background (or foreground).

I was poking around the forum and came across some "Guest" posts that had a distinct style and tone to them. Here's to you, DHO. I wish they would re-institute his name on his posts. They are a hoot!

He got into trouble once -- and they took away his posting privileges and his "persona" -- because he put on a link to a "family-unfriendly" song or poem. (It was a poignant poem if you could get past the language, but that language doesn't represent Penny/Dell, for sure. If Dark Horse had paraphrased the poem without that language, things might have been different.) Then worse yet, he died about 6 months later. But he's approximately the only guest whose posts one finds, so anything you see that says "Guest" is probably his, and you'll probably enjoy reading all the "Guest" posts.
