      {Monday's Riddles}



      1) I went to the park and there were several boys
      with their dogs. Counting heads there are 22. Counting
      legs there are 68. How many boys and dogs are at the park?


      2) Assuming that the vowels are A E I O & U,
      name a six-letter word that has no vowels?


      3) What do you throw out when you want to use it,
      but take in when you don't want to use it?


      4) A word or name that is spelled backwards the same as it is
      forwards is a linguistic curiosity call a "palindrome." Words
      such as BIB, SEES, and MADAM are examples of ordinary palin-
      dromes. Many everyday words happen to be palindromes. Listed
      below are the definitions of 10 such words, with the numbers
      of letters in each palindrome shown in brackets after the
      definition. How many of these commonplace palindromes
      do you recognize from their definitions?

      A) a notable achievement (4)
      B) not sloping (5)
      C) more blood-colored (6)
      D) 12 hours after midnight (4)
      E) males and females (5)
      F) one who resuscitates another (7)
      G) narratives of heroic deeds (5)
      H) pertaining to public affairs (5)
      I) made wet with dew (5)
      J) a mechanical part that causes rotation (7)


      5) Can you decipher this famous saying?

      That prudent avis which matutinally
      deserts the coziness of its abode will
      ensnare a vermiculate creature.


      6) What has one leg,
      but not two.
      Never gets fat,
      has 15 teeth,
      but doesn't chew.
      All green and no blue,
      bugs don't like them but I do.
      What are they?


      7) Without a bridle, or a saddle,
      across a thing I ride a-straddle.
      And those I ride, by help of me,
      though almost blind, are made to see.
      What am I?

      {Time}



      Time, like an ever rolling stream,
      Bears all its son's away;
      They fly, forgotten, as a dream
      Dies at the opening day.
      -Isaac Watts

      {The Paralysis Of Analysis}




      It's got to be one of my favorite plays - "Fiddler on the Roof".
      The story is virtually a modern classic, telling with this incredible
      charm and warmth the story of 19th Century Jews in Russia.

      All the joys of Jewish faith and Jewish family are there, along
      with the pain of persecution for being Jewish. Tevye, the milkman,
      is the colorful father of the family; a man who is forever arguing
      with himself. If you're familiar with the play, you'll remember
      how his conversations with himself - and even with God - will
      go back and forth as he talks himself in and out of opposite
      viewpoints. Tevye will present one view, and then inadvertently
      he will say, "On the other hand . . ." and he'll talk himself out of it.

      He doesn't actually reach many conclusions!

      {A Mysterious Exchange}



      English mystery writer Agatha Christie is treasured for
      the detective stories that got her dubbed the "queen of
      crime."

      Waxed mustache and all, Hercule Poirot, the professional
      sleuth who appears in more than 30 of her books, is considered
      one of the most enduring characters in fiction.

      He is remembered as the egotistical Belgian detective who
      solved multifaceted cases with the help of his "little grey
      cells"; he is also an amusing source of useful quotations.

      In one of his meticulous investigations, Poirot tells his
      sidekick, "There is nothing so dangerous for anyone who
      has something to hide as conversation! A human being,
      Hastings, cannot resist the opportunity to reveal himself
      and express his personality which conversation gives him.
      Every time he will give himself away."
