    Well, I tried "BROKE" and "BRACE" ...

    How about "BRAKE" ?

    ... Well, now I'm going to get some work done that I promised my husband I would have done by now ... grading student papers ... ugghh.

    This has been fun! :)

    EDIT: Oh! One more try at a different one ...

    ANC = MANIC (If so, the irony is thick. I'm on meds for being that.) ;)

    And another one!

    ELL = DWELL (PLEASE say it is.)
    All three are correct! :mrgreen:

    Two?

    Huh?

    I've been trying to find why did the chicken cross the road and what is the capital of [something]. But neither works right.

    Where'd you get "two"?

    Down the left column it spells 'What is one plus one'. :)

    I always go down instead of left to right in word searches for some reason. Been that way since I was little.

    Puzzle 3

    At a recent painting competition, Eileen's rendition of a Constable was not last.

    Jenny only just managed to avoid last place and came third.

    The lady who painted a Monet was very successful and took first place.

    Ada beat the lady who painted the Taylor and the lady who painted the Van Gogh beat Vera.

    Can you determine who painted what and who won?
