Question: ok i have a riddle and i need to know the answer here it is.....

I can be this, and you can be this. And, yes, we can be this. He can't be this, and she can't be this. And no, they can't be this. Dogs can't be this, but cats can. And a kitten can't be this, but a puppy can. Givers can't be this, but beggers can. And humility can't be this, but greed can. Not even peace can be this, but fear can. What is "This"?

please help

Question: I was wondering if you could help me locate a resource for a word game that my wife and I got addicted to when living in Tacoma, Washington and subscribing to the Tacoma News Tribune.

They had a daily puzzle they simply called "Word Game". They would give you a word up to ten letters in length and ask that you find as many combinations of 4+ letter scrambled words contained within. A time limit, average, and maximum number of words were given.

Contacting the newspaper proved fruitless. Can you help? Thanks.

Question: To Anyone that can help: 
My boyfriend put together a puzzle, and put alot of effort into it. I moved it and it fell to the floor. Needless to say, all of the pieces are not together anymore. I don't have the box it came in anymore, therefor I don't have a picture of it to refer to in order to put it back together. I think the name of it was 90 bottles of beer. Can anyone help me and tell me where I might be able to get a picture of this again, or even a web site that can give me this information? Thanks

Question: I have a Ravensburger puzzle that I purchased in a local specialty store in my area years ago and would like some more. The store has closed and I have tried different web sites, but to no avail. It was distributed by International Playthings, Inc. in the U.S.A. Otto Maier Verlag Ravensburg I assume is the artist. It is a unique puzzle in the fact that it doesn't have traditional shaped pieces and it has a black and white image under the finished puzzle. Please contact me with any information about where I can get them. Thanks
J.

Answer: I think Discovery Toys still sells Ravensburger puzzles.
