  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 53 seconds. A lot of good Wordle words in today’s puzzle.

    Heardle fail, and I LOVE that song. Since I had listened to the album (digital version) a few times recently I recognized the intro at one second, but couldn’t think of the song or artist. I think I was thrown by seeing that Spotify bought Heardle — another independent bites the dust.

  2. Watching le Tour on USA for the first time, just to hear Phil’s and Bob’s banter. I have been watching the other feed until today.

  3. Made my final “Prime Days” purchase, and it didn’t go as I hoped. I tried to use the final $12.40 of my $550 gift card by purchasing something that costs $13.50. I expected Amazon’s systems to be able to use the $12.40 and charge the remaining balance to my credit card on file, but no, they just went ahead and charged the $13.50 to my credit card. Dangen!

    Wordle in 3 starting with SAINT!

    Phil and Bob’s commentary, when I sit through it, is fairly benign. I do enjoy the GCN commentators much more. As I didn’t get home until 10 last night, I’ll be 2 stages behind when I watch today.

    Games meeting could have been 3 emails…


    • I was hoping for three, with three properly-places letters after two guesses, but zigged when I should have zagged.

      Changed back to commercial-free feed. The nostalgia of Phil and Bob wore off. Who are the GCN commentators? The commercial-free feed has guys whose voices I recognize, but don’t know their names exactly.

      Riders are on an incredible switch-back filled climb at the moment. Might I also add I love the old footage when riders did the tour without wearing helmets.

      Isn’t that the case for most meetings?

      • Steve says:

        True. Sometimes we can see one another and accomplish things, but frequently it’s just status updates.

        Sean Kelly is the ex-pro, along with Bradly Wiggins on the moto. The other commentators are also ex-pro’s, but no one I ever heard of. It’s not a “dumb downed” American version with warm and fuzzy human interest pieces.

  5. Steve says:

    Heardle ’70’s is a fun one.

  6. David says:

    Wordle in 6 starting with TRICK.

    I have a 93% solve rate out of 97 games:

    1 try: 0 times (not counting on this stat ever changing)
    2 tries: 8 times
    3 tries: 23 times
    4 tries: 24 times
    5 tries: 29 times
    6 tries 6 times
    Fail: 7 times

    I’ve played Wordle much more than 97 times, but it lost a big chunk of my stats somewhere along the way even though I always use my phone to play it.

    I have a 42% solve rate out of 105 songs on Heardle:
    1 second: 24 songs
    2 seconds: 7 songs
    3 seconds: 2 songs
    4 seconds: 1 songs
    5 seconds: 7 songs
    6 seconds: 3 times
    Fail: 61 times

    Heardle 70s: 84% solve rate on 38 songs, 27 of those in one second.
    Heardle 80s: 21% solve rate out of 28 songs
    Heardle 90s: 3% solve rate on 36 songs
    Heardle 00s: 23% solve rate on 26 songs

    I’m surprised my 90s Heardle is so abysmal, I know a ton of music from the 90s, but apparently not what they pick. Same for the 80s. 00’s is a much better showing than I expected.

    NYT Mini in 40 seconds.

    • Steve says:

      I like to keep a running average in Wordle, but I play from several different devices, so it’s not as accurate as it could be. I was just below 4 a month or so ago, then went through a cold streak.

      Now that I see the decade Heardle’s, I might try those more often.

    • Interesting. Here is my Wordle breakdown:

      I have a 99% solve rate out of 135 games:

      1 try: 0 times
      2 tries: 12 times
      3 tries: 31 times
      4 tries: 55 times
      5 tries: 19 times
      6 tries 16 times
      Fail: 2 times

      I may have lost some efforts by playing on iPad early in my Wordle days, but not a significant number.

      I don’t play Heardle enough to make the stats relevant.

    you guys kicked my button all the games today.

    Relatives made it out & I’d assume they are home in Girona sleeping.
    Allan spent the day cleaning & doing laundry (I helped a little, but I have to work some)

    Not much else going on around here.

    • You have been a busy hostess, you deserve a break today.

      • Steve says:

        I’ll second that, AND with a dead A/C!!

        Remember what Ben Franklin said about houseguests- both start to smell after 3 days.

      • Barb says:

        the 2 AC units we have running are actually doing a pretty good job. The bedroom is cold enough to sleep, I even put on a light blanket. The living room with that has the portable one from Sani’s house does ok too. Tomorrow is supposed to be the big day for the new unit & I’ll be poor for my birthday!

  8. No spoilers, but today’s TdF stage has been a pleasure to watch.

  9. At some point I hope I become immune to ant bites. Some sonnabitch bit me on the left calf twice after I came back inside from picking radishes from WLF for dinner.
