How to successfully waste an hour or two . .

Jones spends his time writing & performing his songs, writing to the papers, doing illustrations for Zuiderlucht and browsing idly around the net for considerably longer than any adult should . . .

Sudokus are great … I preferably stick to the medium level. They are not too easy, but keep you busy for a while AND you have a good chance for solving them! I love a good 7 out of 10 rate … else I got very depressed about my lack of intelligence! *lol*

I want your job. Can you send any of your unused hours this way? Because 24 are simply not enough to check off both the “have to” and “want to” lists in my head.

It took me the longest time to catch on to Sudokus. My teenager had to show me how they worked. Now I do 1 or 2 before bed.

PS you say “My teenager . . .”

Could that be a member of the family?
It has the sound of some exotic pet which may have become popular in the colonies . . . . is it friendly? and house trained?

Unfortunately this is not possible nor would it be useful: as Cecil Northcote Parkinson stated in his law: The amount of time in which one has to perform a task is the amount of time it will take to complete said task.

Thus a 27 hour day would be just as full as the normal 25.3 hours . . . the extra 1.3 hours being the approximate time wasted doing sudokus. Also the additonal would also allow others to invent other demands . . ..

Of course, Parkinson’s Law can also be stated in other way:
Storage requirements will increase to meet storage capacity.
In everyday terms, however large your house you would always benefit from another room . . . . .

Cyril Northcote Parkinson (30 July 1909 – 9 March 1993) was a British naval historian and author of some sixty books, the most famous of which was his bestseller Parkinson’s Law, which led him to be also considered as an important scholar within the field of public administration.

Sudoku s are a great way to pass time… N any kind of puzzle is fuel for the brain… Used to solve a lot of sudoku puzzles earlier… Medium one s are good… It takes a little time but in the end you solve it…
Have a fab day!! TC…
