Updated: Online Fun including Crossword Puzzles


Hi Everyone!

It has been years since I updated the online fun hotsites. Tonight, I cleared out all the closed sites and made changes and additions to the list. I created a new page for the list at:
https://jr.co.il/hotsites/online-fun.htm

The page includes websites with crossword puzzles. The first site listed has daily printable crossword puzzles
and an archive going back several years. I do not do crossword puzzles - when time permits, I play free online Lexulous and Scrabble via Facebook.
However, I enter the crosswords site once every week or two and I download six daily crossword puzzles in
PDF format. I also screen capture images of the six answer sheets. Why?
A few months ago, an older friend had to move to an old age home in Jerusalem. I found out that she likes
crossword puzzles but she does not have online access. I asked for the email of the administration office
and I email them the PDF's and images and they print and deliver them to her room. She enjoys doing the
puzzles and doing word games keeps the mind active.
BTW - I try to send just six PDFs in an email in order not to be a burden on the kind staff and I wait a few days before sending the answers.

I thought this tidbit was worth sharing in order to bring some joy to others.

Please share. Thank you!

Have a good night / morning,
Jacob Richman

The Israel Ministry of Health has been running a campaign against processed food. The campaign highlights the advantages of unprocessed food,
such as fresh chicken, legumes, and fresh vegetables. They have been publicizing the Hebrew public service
announcements on television, Youtube and social media. Today, I created a page of the videos with English translations.
