Happy 2018!
Just letting you know – +PuzzleBeetle will be mostly away from the world of Google+ until later in the year. I may startle you occasionally with the odd post – ‘cos you know I’m odd, right?!
I’ll be puzzling away in the background. You can still get hold of me by email, and books can still be ordered from the website :-)

Now, if I could figure out the puzzle of achieving this, my Christmas preparations would be complete! You too?
May your mince pies be warm, and may your Christmas tree twinkle and smell pine-y! Very best festive wishes to you from +PuzzleBeetle :-)

How’s your brain working today? Take a look at this! Human perception, eh?!

Cryptic clues are never what they seem – don’t take them literally, puzzle people!
Words like “back”, “retreat” and “up” usually indicate that you need to reverse the following or preceding word. Simple examples:
- Composer taking taxi back to hospital (4) – Solution: Bach (BAC h)
- Retreating rodent found by old-fashioned sailor (3) – Solution: Tar (RAT = rodent)
- Made up Dutch cheese (4) – Solution: Edam (MADE)

Weird knowledge! I have a soft spot for quirky pieces of knowledge that other people probably put into the “useless information” category. Did you know, for instance, that the words CHOICE COD written in capital letters read the same when held in front of a mirror upside down? Go on, try it out for yourself… you know you want to!

Another one of those perceptual illusions – simple, but effective! What do you think??
