    Sudoku - It Is A Great Pastime!

    Though I started with simple Sudoku puzzles in 'USA Today' a few years ago, I got fascinated by the sheer logic of the magic squares. Now I have progressed to the tough ones (by whatever names they may be called, such as Diabolical, Extreme, etc.). I haven't become an addict as...

    Not So Good At It...

     I really like Sudoku, but I'm not that good at it.  I like to do it until I mess up big on some easy one, then I get mad and don't do a puzzle again for a long time.

    Getting Better At It

    When I first began to play, I could not do it without going to each square and writing ALL of the possibilites for each square first!  UGH!  I look back on that and realize that many rubber trees died to make the erasers I chewed through! Now, I'm getting better &...
