Currently Tuesday does not appear to have a regular setter, although Shamus usually features on alternate weeks. Until Autumn 2010 the other slot featured Ray T most of the time.

Shropshirelad has decided to withdraw from blogging duties for personal reasons – I hope he may change his mind at some time in the future.

Today’s puzzle was very ordinary and didn’t take up much of my time.… Read More

Good Morning from a dull weather day in my neck of the woods. We are meant to be bathed in brilliant sunshine and enjoying ‘scorchio’ temperatures. So much for weather forecasters.… Read More

Good morning from what looks to be a nice day (weather wise) here in Shropshire. Our Tuesday Mr Ron has given us a puzzle which I don’t think will trouble too many of you – there are a few ‘groaners and old chestnuts’ but it’s an enjoyable solve nonetheless.… Read More

Good morning from a rather sultry day here in Shropshire. Today’s puzzle from our Tuesday Mr Ron is a ‘pangram,’ but there is nothing here to send ‘Silver’ and his mates scampering off to the hills.… Read More

Good morning everyone from a bright and sunny day in my part of Shropshire. Not exactly a R&W but not far off it. I actually quite enjoyed it, but after doing the review I’ve knocked half a star off due the ‘bittiness’ of it all (take the ‘a’ …… abbreviation….etc).… Read More

Good Morning from what is starting to be a bit of a hot day here in Shropshire. Nothing in the puzzle today that will send the horses galloping off to the hills but still quite enjoyable (apart from a couple of clues).… Read More

Good morning from an unhappy Shropshire bunny. If anything could go wrong this morning – it did. I won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say I’m probably not in the right frame of mind to adjust BD’s star rating today as I may be doing the setter an injustice [ I have adjusted it.… Read More

Welcome from a quite muggy Shropshire. I hate to say it, but I didn’t really enjoy todays puzzle from our Tuesday Mr Ron – some of it just didn’t ‘feel’ right.… Read More

Good morning from a ‘non-scorchio’ Shropshire. The weather is back to its low 20’s and I, for one, am quite glad it has cooled down.

I don’t think that the puzzle today will hold many of you up as it was pretty much a R&W although the SE corner was my last in and edged me towards 2* territory.… Read More
