Well, another night with too much caffeine, and I'm awake at 3 AM.

Hmmmm.... What's this bouncing around inside my head? Certainly not a dream, or nightmare. Well, maybe someone else might consider it a nightmare, for I have the inspiration for another puzzle! Laughing

In the past month I have come up with a lot of ideas for puzzles in the early morning hours after too much caffeine. Not sure what causes my brain to be so twisted, but ..... Perhaps it is because I'm working on so many puzzles put out by other cachers. That would mean they are at fault.

My recent puzzle, PPPP, seems to have been solved already. Or at least I have received some intelligence that implies it has been. My goal is to have a puzzle that lasts for more than a week. My recent efforts certainly have not worked. Either I am slipping, or the local puzzlers have figured out how my mind works!

Worked a couple of seldom|seen puzzles the last couple of days with Wheezer. S|S has some great puzzles here in the Fox Valley. Some of them are very different in concept and implementation. If you have not tried any yet, I encourage you to do so.

Well, anyways, Wheezer and I were talking ..... Do you know, you are not supposed to talk to me? Gives me all sorts of ideas for puzzles!

Well, we talked about one in particular. I have the name figured out already - A Carol for Paper Dolls. Still mulling over how it will work. I plan for this one to be truly evil!

Besides working up ideas for puzzles, picking the names is fun.

Which Park?
Et tu, Ceasar?
Where Do I Live?
Honorificabilitudinitatibus
Rocky, too....

Well, something for you all to think about, if you have any sleepless nights also........

LoL.
I feel guilty caching near ya all as I know his caches are close by, but I can't seem to bring myself to strain my melon figuring out where they are. Maybe I'll accidentally trip over one some day.

it's funny you mention being jacked on caffine... I don't drink soda and chocolate gives me the scoots, but I love Red Bull and Red Bull-esque drinks. In association with my Red Bull addiction, I was considering placing a Series of Caches in the SE Minnesota area this spring with a Motley Crue theme. Each one would be named after a Crue song and there would be a reason:

Girls,Girls,Girls- A girl themed cache

Kick Start my Heart- A cache where the physical difficulty would require defibulation panels at the end.

Shout at the Devil- A cache so mentally challenging, that the finder would be describing yours truely as EVIL!

etc

See... I'm totally addicted to something other than Red Bull.... Caching Rules!

Try Carob!!!!!!

Quote:
Beneficial Uses:
Carob is considered a remarkable antidiarrheal, and it is highly recommended that travelers pack Carob when visiting foreign countries. Carob is said to be high in fiber and rich in one class of tannins (polyphenols) that manifest strong antiviral and antiseptic properties, making it effective when given to treat bacterial-induced diarrhea.

According to Dr. Qi Dai, assistant professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, a ten-year study found that the particularly strong antioxidant effects of the polyphenols, which may be found in Carob, act to reduce the incidence of Alzheimer's disease.

Carob is considered a demulcent, a medicine with soothing, mucilaginous qualities that shield mucous membranes from irritating substances.

In France, some early research indicates that Carob may be helpful in stimulating inactive kidneys and may be effective in cases of chronic kidney failure.

Carob is a wonderful substitute for cocoa, because it contains fewer calories, is naturally sweet, and, unlike cocoa or sweet chocolate, is caffeine-free and non addictive. In addition, it is usually cheaper. Also unlike cocoa and chocolate, Carob does not interfere with the body's assimilation of calcium. Carob Beans may be roasted and ground for use as a coffee substitute, and Carob is a versatile additive used to flavor jams, liqueurs, juices, cigarettes and other food products.

Just do what I do. Finger out what caches you are going to go on!!!!!! If you feel like putting out another puzzle, open up the small drawer on your desk, put your fingers in it, and close it real hard. That will get the puzzles out of your head!!!!!!
