A terrible blow. My subscription to the NY Times has become irrevocably screwed up, and now I get no newspaper delivered, and finally I have gotten them to stop billing me for the unarriving paper, but I have yet to rev up my stamina to make the necessary phone call/s that might, if I can get past the electronic menu, get them to start up my subsciption. I want a truce, a no-blame treaty, and I want my NYTimes on my front porch every morning. But it isn't happening yet.

That, however, is not my terrible blow. The blow is this: that this morning I said goodbye to my overnight guest, put on my coat and gloves and hat and boots, and went out to buy the NY Times, maybe a 2-mile drive to the drugstore.  I bought their last copy, and also bought some cough drops, because it is that time of year, and a brand new EnerGel pen for doing the NY Times crossword puzzle, something I have sorely missed during my weeks without it.

And when i got home, I opened up my new pen, poured a fresh cup of coffee, and opened up the NY Times...and WWWAAAAHHH there is no maagzone section in it. Hence, no crossword puzzle.

Okay,  I have the international news, and the Arts and Leisure section, and The News of the Week in Review, and I have Sports, even though I don't really care about the Patriots any more after last week's game. But I do. not. have. the. puzzle.  Abd this is a devastating blow.

I am thinking of going back to bed, even though it is 11 AM.  Yes, I am that sad.

For now, I will have confidence that you are resilient and resourceful. Perhaps you might seize this OPPORTUNITY (this is after all a crisis, you know) and create a puzzle hungry puzzler's challenge!
This morning I felt the post holiday letdown a bit, and your puzzle dilemma has fully ignited my own discomfort.

Happy New Year?? I wish you well with your NY Times puzzles!

green mountains and rivers, fertile land of thousands of hectares of spring, it will be intoxicated them; when you face such as gold like silver, fruitful autumn season, will be delighted. You have ever thought that the spring is full of cold after the baptism of the heroic, that the beauty of the autumn is to accept the crystallization of the heat after melting. Looking back, in fact, our life is also true Do not experience some of the ideal and struggle of the bones of cold, how can the harvest of the nostalgia? Ideal. Is the first layer of the realm, like a tree, but it is only just a seed. The gloss of life needs to be modified, it gives the brightest light of life. With it, we will adhere to the road belonging to our own farther and farther, ideal, can be a lifetime of ideals, a stage of the ideal, a year of ideals. But the ideal is also very small, even a month, day, hour, a minute of the ideal can ignite your heart the most beautiful fire of the stars, so wash away the vast expanse of dust, all the way forward. How the spring flowers bloom gorgeous, how the summer stars flashing Yinhui, the road of life, how to sail, attracted a poetic to Bi Xiao? I think the answer is very simple - that is, so that the heart can grow into a tree 'seed' landing, take root, germination. Struggle is the second layer of the realm. Big trees and then large, it also needs to grow the process. Youth itself, is a bright and dazzling vocabulary, is in such a brilliant old age under us. Young heart can not help but also look forward to a lot, yes ah, who is not eager to become their helmsman, lead the life of the boat into another vast sky? From the students who concentrate on reading literacy literally become a rush of office workers, we crossed the adult dividing line, the most gorgeous chapter of life from here quietly staged. Bent on flying out of the wing of the parents, fighting their own heavy Xiao nine days, after all, my youth, by our own master! And just loudly shouting slogans, desperate to leave the greenhouse, the face of boundless heaven and earth, we are confused, whether the Cheap Nike Shoes calm: my youth, how do I call the shots? In life, everyone will encounter unhappy things, suffer setbacks, misunderstanding, criticism and Nike Kobe Bryant Shoes Sale so on. At that Nike Air Presto Mens Shoes time the feeling is undoubtedly an insurmountable obstacle. But this is not growing ups and downs, the growth of trees is the need for sunshine with nutrients. When necessary, please generous your confidence and courage. Remember: the flowers in the greenhouse is long, but the bones are always free from the fragrance of the people. Harvest, is the third layer of the realm: the autumn came, our trees will really grow up. Its growth reflects a shining road of life. And whether the 'tree' is tall and straight, foliage, and even opened the flowers, the fruit of the fruit. Do not say that the final harvest of this tree is Cheap Nike Shoes Online equivalent to its past pay. As long as it is harvest, it is already a result. As life, success, then harvest flowers and applause, failed, they harvest a lesson, how many lessons, and then from scratch again. As long as we use the dedication to break the fate of the yoke, with confidence and courage to light life. Planted the ideal, unremitting struggle, I believe that there will be 'goose greedy heart to go, the mountain good month' of the day, I believe there will be harvest! Past songs, in the journey of life, despite the ups and downs, have regret, but did not Authentic Kids Nike Shoes lose the beauty of youth. Believe in yourself, hope always have, let us remember that sentence: missed the sun, I do not cry, otherwise, I will miss the moon and stars. So Womens Nike Free Shoes let's get together!Insist on for what? Everyone is clamoring you just look very hard, everyone shouting hoarse life not only in front of the eyes, everyone is trying to find a want life, so in this way hard ahead. So why should we work hard?A wave more than a wave of strong, do not be beaten on the beach after the waves. After the Discount Nike Womens Shoes waves push the waves, a wave more than a wave of strong. Competition society, fight is who is more capable, who is more in the community neutral place. Everyone to survive the survival of the fittest, you do not fight do not grab not to work hard, the result can only be rotated in situ, so he can only look high above others light. We have heard such a passage, the world's most terrible is not someone better than you, but better than you are still working hard, then why do not you want to fight this. Never afraid of late, fear of life is mediocre. His child hit my child 1, the arrogant opening that no one on the one hand you lose ten thousand, I have enough qualified to come up with fifty thousand or even 100,000 let the children back. Before the spread of this sentence on the Internet, at first glance will feel funny, but in this sentence is hidden under what nature? Imagine if you have money, then when someone else insult you insult your child, you are fully qualified to have the money to come up with more money to go back, it is not education of children violence and vanity, but not Willing to let their children or themselves to bear s
