A quince is more like an apple. Quinces aren't much good raw. Kind of like quinoa, I guess.

The poor slob who tried these the first time, was probably someone who died of it, but who had been lost in the woods for weeks, starving to death, first, figuring whatever they ate, it couldn't be worse than starving. Then others learned from the sad experience of the first. Who knows?

I know if the world went away and I had to go forage for food, I'd probably be that dead guy, heheh. Spit happens. I just don't know what to eat in nature, being push fed supermarket products all my life. Dandelions I know are edible, and so are thistles. Beyond that, I'd be in real trouble. So would my meat, er cat....

Kidding, folks.

Well, quince bushes can be grown as ornamentals. They're not bad to look at. They have lots of blooms once a year. Then you get some fruits that you can't do anything with.

Thanks for posting IN_Puzzler! I stayed away from the Beatles puzzle because I'm not too familiar with their song titles but I had a lot of fun with the Crayola one. Boy have color names come a long way since I was a kid. I especially like #10. The only one that stumped me is #12, is it possible the last letter is wrong?

Yes, for the last answer, I erroneously coded it (the actual letter was presented instead of the coded one). I re-edited it this morning. I think I will start carrying my puzzling notebook around all the time.

Sorry for any frustration!

Sure thing Purple - I got inspired while watching my son color. All of those colors exist in the 64 box. What I need to do is get the list of the colors that have been retired.

No need to apologize IN_Puzzler! smile

As a kid there was nothing like a new box of crayons, all sharp and pristine looking! I know they have the sharpeners on a lot of the boxes nowadays, but it doesn't beat that fresh new crayon!

Not being a coffee drinker and never having stepped inside a coffeehouse I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to solve it but I did! Very creative IN_Puzzler!

I am working on a couple of ideas for topics for some cryptofamilies, but I am not satisfied with them right now. I'll post when I get them to a state that I content with. I've been mostly solving the past week and reading Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs and those 2 things have been using up all my free time.
