Feeding my addiction

The mailman just showed up at my door, and I've been working Sudoku puzzles ever since. georgiaskydiver, you know me so well! This electronic game is amazing, and is so easy to use. Much smaller than toting around a whole book *laugh* It's going into my purse so I can always work them! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Don't let the numbers scare you. You can also play it with letters or symbols.

Think of the grid (I'm sure you've seen the puzzles), there are nine squares, three across and three down. Each of those squares is also divided into nine.

Some of the spaces are already filled out - and it is up to you to fill in the rest using logic. The parameters are that a number can only be used once in a row, once in a column, and once in each square. So, say you have a row where everything is filled out except 2 spaces - numbers 4 and 6 are what would go there (everything else 1-9 is accounted for in the row). Take one of the possible spaces for the 4, and see if there is already a 4 in that square or in that column down. Then check the other one. Do the same with the 6, if that didn't help.

Generally, once you get the concept - numbers 1-9 with each only appearing one time in each row, column and square - you have it down. They come in different levels, based on the amount of thinking ahead you have to do.

REALLY addicting. I play online sometimes at www.websudoku.com. Good place to learn.

You are not alone. Anything having to deal with numbers scares me senseless.

How could I NOT buy that for you? It was too perfect. Especially since you were complaining about being bored - at least the last time I was able to read your jounal.

It was either that, or that awesome vibrating, flopping, electrical thing we found in Brookstone while waiting for our pictures: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


What amazes me is how much faster the mail service is from the back woods in the mountains of North Carolina than it is from what is supposedly a growng suburb of Atlanta.

Ok, Blondie. You missed a post back in September :)

I found the uZap at the Brookstone outlet for $50 and actually bought it *laugh*
