Although I am still making daily Blog posts, I am on vacation until August 15th. I am on an extended road trip around this lovely country, so some days I may not have Internet access and maybe late posting. If a post is missing, please check back later. Apologies for any inconvenience.

The name’s William Ernest Butler, but please call me Bill. I grew up in Ireland, but now live out here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m retired now, from technology businesses that took our family all over the world. I answer all emails, so please feel free to email me at bill@paxient.com, or leave a comment below. If you are working on the New York Times crossword in any other publication, you are working on the syndicated puzzle. Here is a link to my answers to today’s SYNDICATED New York Times crossword. To find any solution other than today’s, enter the crossword number (e.g. 1225, 0107) in the “Search the Blog” box above.

Our last night in Munising, Michigan! This is my solution to the crossword published in the New York Times today …

COMPLETION TIME: N/A (Watching “The Queen” on DVD … wonderful film!)
THEME: 3 X 8 … eight of the answers have letters circled in them, which make up 3-letter intials, words that form clues for other, specified answers e.g. F.B.I. (from FABIAN) gives CRIME FIGHTERS, I.O.U. (from PIOUS) gives PROMISSORY NOTE


Tonight is the last night with the in-laws, and it’s another late one. I didn’t have time to do the Lookups, and am just posting the solution. We are on the road again tomorrow, heading back west, and I should be finding time to make more complete posts. Thank you all for your patience.
