Having my brother here. He has been here since late Sunday and has  already washed the car, mended the washing line and put together a garden shredder I bought some months ago  and found I couldn't lift. He has  fed the outside birds. He has sorted out what sort of new mobile phone I need to buy and made a list of the next round of jobs which we will attack together this afternoon.  No, sorry, you can't borrow him!!!

Is he single...

Well there must have been ones that needed guessing if what I said in my previous post about this is correct.

I prefer crosswords but sometimes do the moderate or tough sudokus but didn't like the diabolical ones because they involved guessing. Apparently the setter got so much hate mail about this that now they don't so will have another go at them Is diabolical the same as Killer?

I have never see one which requires guessing , theres always some logical way. Might involve algebraic equations though.

A properly-compiled Sudoku or Killer should never require guessing, although sometimes the logic is quite obscure, involving 'ghost' numbers and repetitions of groups of numbers.

Unfortunately, I'm better at numbers than words, but I do prefer crossword puzzles to Sudokus. However, the great wit that was Araucaria is now gone.

Sylvette, if you like a bit of variety, with no guesswork required, here's a Sudoku with a difference.

That looks fun!  No time to do it today, but will definitely have a go!

I'm happy because my Co-op banking token wasn't locked. That's the happiest I'm likely to be today. Which is quite sad really.
