I just finished your puzzle Frances, I sent you a p.m.. Good topic, great answers. Unfortunately there is no way that I could ever do a puzzle about Pittsburgh neighborhoods considering I've never been nor do I plan to ever go there. The catagory I do believe is not quite broad enough for some folks. CC

I thought the neighborhoods had some interesting names. "Hill" was a clue in the example; 3 of the answers had Hill in the name. No biggie - everyone's got their own tastes.

Ciao,

Thanks CC and Indiana for having a go at my puzzle. When my puzzles are in magazines, naturally I have no feedback from any solvers. It's kind of fun to know who the folks are, when they try a puzzle of mine, and their reactions. So, thank you for that. smile

Not that I'm particularly good at Crypto Quizzes (although I like the Beatles so much that I did do Indiana's Beatles one), but I realize this post is up to 5 pages -- nothing like that post "The Forum" which Cream Cheese started several months ago, but nothing to sneeze at, either.

I have to agree, Ames. I think IN brought up a great topic. I don't do ALL of the families I run across, but I do them when the rest of my faves run out, or I'm trying to be diligent and go page by page. I think they're fun!

Ok, since I have been on a cryptofamilies binge the past couple of weeks, I decided to create my own puzzle and share it here.

Beatles Songs With Two Word Titles
Example: Hey Jude

1) KJHHT OSHJ

2) HIPVJUJ DSH

3) MIDJ QIRJQ
VJU

4) JOJSHIU UBRGT

5) TJOOIP NFGDSUBHJ

6) VJOOI, RIIAGTJ

7) RJQ GSME

8) AST QUBKKJU

9) IMQIKFN’N RSUAJH

10) ROSNN IHBIH



I wrote it up and proofread it, so any error in the song titles or coding are entirely mine and I apologize in advance.

If you would like to private message your answers to me go right ahead. I'll publish the answers in a few days after the answers trickle in (if any).

Solution:

1) Penny Lane
2) Nowhere Man
3) Come Together
4) Eleanor Rigby
5) Yellow Submarine
6) Hello, Goodbye
7) Get Back
8) Day Tripper
9) Octopus's Garden
10) Glass Onion

The one song I wanted to put in but didn't was "Rocky Raccoon" on the White album because I wasn't sure that was the actual title. That said, the would have been an interesting code with the double c and double o next to each other.

PERIWINKLE
SEPIA
ASPARAGUS
RAW SIENNA
SALMON
GOLDENROD
WISTERIA
MAHOGANY
MELON
MAUVELOUS
ROBIN'S EGG BLUE
GOLD

Quick comment on goldenrod - Frances commented to me that it is one word "goldenrod" but I originally coded it as "golden rod." I subsequently revised it based on her comment - but then I was coloring with my son this past weekend and came across the golden rod crayon - and indeed in this box it is listed as golden rod - 2 words. So I'm guessing that this was a little creativity on Crayloa's part.

I seem to recall "Rocky Raccoon" as the correct title, Indiana. You know what you could always do, if you wanted to include a song but weren't sure of the title? You could look up on Google, something like "Rocky Raccoon Lyrics" and see the lyrics as well as the correct title (if that weren't it) and the artist, etc. In fact, I just did double-check my memory by Googling "Rocky Raccoon Lyrics" and, indeed, that is the correct song title.

Only to find, Gideon's bible

Gideon checked out, and he left it no doubt

To help with good Rocky's revival, ahhhh, yeah yeah!

Love that simple little tune.

I tried to create with Excel boxes and it looks like the formatting got a little hinke. Sorry, but I think it's still fun.
