I've been blogging since IPP30. I've put up videos, reviews, random rants, puzzle meet-ups and lots and lots of other things all related to puzzles.
I've never advertised it here because I'm just too lazy most days. Well I've decided that a cut and paste is not too difficult so I'll start loading here.

Today you get two Vesa puzzles, A Puzzle Master, and a Derek Bosch. Here they are.

Thanks for the food coloring experiment. You've motivated me to try too but I'm not sure when I'll have the time.

I've been reading your and other blogs on puzzles, and I appreciate them very much. It's great that some people share information on their collection, sometimes before buying a puzzle I read the blogs about it and then decide if I buy it or not. I would like to start a blog on my collection too, but not much time at the moment. Thank you puzzle-bloggers for all the interesting information ! :D

Absolutely! We love you and we know that you love us really!

Believe me! You have cost me a fortune over the last year!
Remember I was a simple puzzler with little urge to do twisties and now, thanks to you, I have nearly 90 of them including quite a few handmade ones and a Shapeways 3x5x7! Despite this I still love you!! :oops:

Touché. But at the time I really did hate bloggers. :lol: a two day testing session without a puzzle to be found and the only thing I could do was read! Torture I tell you!

Today I bring you a puzzle that I need help understanding. A star in a box. I'm sure that isn't even the real name of this puzzle, it's just one I gave it. I'm not even sure what the purpose is or how it should be done so any help at all would be appreciated.

My next puzzle isa packing puzzle. I picked this one up off eBay a while back, and only realized I had it back in January. Too many puzzles, too little time.

Oh my, I'm so negligent. First up a trip report to Singapore to meet fellow blogger Jerry, and then a short meeting with TP member Traiphum.
