Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends,

Greetings on a chilly spring day. After completing this week's puzzle, you may have a craving for Toasted Ravioli and Chocolate Lasagna. Mangia!

Under the category of "Crazy Conspiratorial Crossword Coincidences," consider this -- our puzzle's title ("Oh, Geez!") is identical to the title of last week's ClassiCanadian Crossword puzzle, created by my friend and colleague Barb Olson. Barb makes a beautiful weekly puzzle for her subscribers (I'm a fan!). Though our puzzles share the same title -- chosen independently and without undue influence -- the concepts are totally different. Cheers to Barb for leading the way!
