    Sorry Jim, but I'm doing real good just being able to count to 9! My wife likes Kakuro, though. My daughter thinks anyone who messes with numbers for relaxation is a bit more than a half bubble off. lol

    LOL!

    I suspect as she gets older and math is no longer associated with school work, she will find aspects of it that she enjoys. That sorta runs strong in my side of the family through my mom. My grandmother would sit for hours adding and subtracting numbers. My mom use to do astrology charts for people and that involved calculating planetary positions (though there were charts she used for a lot of that). And her mom and I do Sudoku and Kakuro games. She doesn't stand a chance. Mwahahaha!

    I have tried a few Kakuro puzzles but got frustrated at sorting through all the possibilities for an answer. Kay enjoys them though. They (Suduko puzzles) do help the miles pass a little quicker, too.

    Steve: It took weeks before I could solve one of these - like until this week. I still keep learning combinations that are basically forced. The obvious one is that a 4 has to be a 3 & 1. But 16 will be 9 & 7 for two squares and 17 will be 9 & 8. for 3 squares, 7 will be 4, 2, & 1. 23 will be 6,8, & 9. 22 will be 5, 8 & 9. Then it's a matter of figuring out the order. For a 7 square one that is 28, it has to be 1,2,3,4,5,6, & 7, in some order. 21 is 1-6 for six squares. 15 is 1-5 for 5 squares,...

    T. - The puzzle books, in addition to the computer, probably would have been very helpful during pregnancy, right?
