    I wish I could do crossword puzzles. I only ever know like 1 to 2 answers every puzzle I try. Congratulations though.

    Thanks! I find I get better and better as I work on more puzzles.

    In Crosswords there is also a great hint system that helps out when you get stuck (I use it all the time)!
