Puzzles for Breakfast? - 11/22/14

Today's puzzle comes to us from Minnesota.  I've heard of some puzzlers out there who enjoy looking at this blog and the featured puzzles over their morning coffee, but I've never heard of anyone:

Basket Weaving 101 - 11/21/14

Recently I was at a quilting retreat working on a project (below) that looked sort of like it was woven, and it reminded me of this Mississippi puzzle I'd seen a while back:

I hold in my hand ... - 11/19/14

Today's Ohio puzzle calls to mind a comedic bit I remember very well.  His talent certainly could come in handy in solving geocaching puzzles.  Be sure to scroll down and read the note the reviewer posted upon publication of:

Very Superstitious - 11/18/14

My mother passed along any number of funny superstitions as I was growing up ... mostly dealing with bad luck:  an umbrella put up in the house, walking under a ladder, spilling salt (throw it over your shoulder immediately), but I remember at least a couple were for good luck: finding a penny, and seeing a load of hay.  Seeing cows lying down was a sure sign that it was going to rain.  Today's Pennsylvania puzzle is the first in a whole series of superstition-related puzzles:

And just in case you're humming it ... here's the tune.

Disco Duck - 11/17/14

Puzzlers of a certain age may remember the protagonist of today's Texas puzzle:

Disco Duck is Going on a Vacation

Tomorrow we'll be in Pennsylvania. 

P.S.  I was tickled to be invited back on the GeoGearHeads podcast last week.  Click here for their website if you're interested in listening to the show, which mostly focused on using geocheckers.

Chumlee - 11/16/14

Today's Nevada puzzle is one I chose following a recent conversation with my husband.  He mentioned that he might need to go to Las Vegas for work, to which I replied that I'd love to go along with him if we could work it out.  Since I've never expressed interest in traveling with him for work before, he seemed surprised and asked "What would you do in Las Vegas?"  Well ... I'm sure I could think of a thing or two to do there, but if nothing else, I could always go visit:
