  1. Good Morning, Everyone. ☀️ GEE…2V…OR NOT 2V? ☀️

    🎶 You’re a shining star…No matter who you are…Shining bright to see…What you could truly be..(What you could truly be)…🎶 “Shining Star” – Earth, Wind & Fire 1975 https://tinyurl.com/3jeewwhh

    ☀️ MYSELF, I got the solve real quick, although I’m not a PERSON,
    Who’s very good at Solar stuff…to others I’d be worse then…
    But it so HAPPENs that I helped my nephew recently,
    While studying about the Sun…and it just stuck with me…
    With kids today…an INFLUX, their workload can be much,
    Things I don’t quite remember…like Space and Stars and such…
    (I’ll mention here that GARLIC?… I’ll play the NUANCE card,
    Because no matter how I try to use it here?…Too hard)…
    So solving today’s puzzle? Yes, a few may feel they’re trampled…
    But bottom line, this Sun of ours? It’s a SHINING EXAMPLE! ☀️

    So…Shining Star. Two things about my song choice this morning. One…IMO, there’s no way one can sit still while listening to it. I danced around my office throughout the whole thing. And two…who can hear it and not think of Elaine dancing to it in “The Little Kicks” episode of Seinfeld? https://tinyurl.com/yb7bpnwp OMG! Priceless!…As is she…Julia Louis-Dreyfus is definitely a SHINING STAR!

    All six of our words today, just as last Sunday, have SHONE themselves before. And it was only CANNEU that came up as a repeat anagram, from this past June. But while the Early Birds had no trouble unscrambling them all, the TEMPERATURE of the room did change somewhat when it came to our solve. And here’s why…Those familiar with today’s puzzle theme, “G-Type Main-Sequence Stars”, https://tinyurl.com/2bn87wtj picked up on it immediately. But those of them who’d never heard the phrase before…well, they were definitely UP IN THE AIR with it all. So even though Jeff gave us two GLARE-ing clues with the words, “G-type stars outSHINE 90% of the stars in the Milky Way”, = SHINING, on the screen, and the dialogue…”Our own sun meets the criteria perfectly” = EXAMPLE, three of them were still lost in SPACE, so to speak…(And for many of you, who do your solving from the newspaper alone, there’s a good chance you weren’t even able to read the three detailed statements in the panel)** . But here’s where Google always sheds some LIGHT. Once they looked up “G-Type Main-Sequence Stars”? Well, it all just FUSED together. Our sun, is a SHINING EXAMPLE! https://tinyurl.com/27dzkta7 And David has definitely outSUN himself with this one! …And while there are no hidden gems to unEARTH this morning, I give props to Jeff for those two CORE clues!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone. Be well, stay safe…and breathe a SKY of relief for conquering this one! ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

    ** Here’s a copy of the puzzle from my NY Daily News. You can enlarge it even further, in order to clearly read the statements.  https://tinyurl.com/22xdyc3z

  2. OUT OF THE ARCHIVES…The puzzle of March 5th, 2017… The Question: “The best employee at the car wash was a…” And the answer? SHINING EXAMPLE! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 🧄 With such an INFLUX of new recipes due to the pandemic, I thought I’d try one, written for more than one PERSON, that called for an entire head of GARLIC; but I MYSELF felt that it was too much…so I wondered what would HAPPEN if I lessened it…the problem though, was the NUANCE in which the recipe was written…it definitely wasn’t a SHINING EXAMPLE of flexibility…🧄

    🤷🏻‍♀️ Like GARLIC can be pungent, I felt the INFLUX strong,
    Just PERSON after person, and the list was getting long…
    MYSELF I like a smaller group, where NUANCE could take place,
    And nothing much would HAPPEN that could cause you to lose face…
    Much easier to mingle, and the food and drink to sample…
    A dinner party…intimate…is the SHINING EXAMPLE…🤷🏻‍♀️

  4. I had trouble with a few of these anagrams.
    The solution was tough too.
    See you all tomorrow!

      • Always clever! Love your reference to that Seinfeld episode, definitely one of my favorites!

        • Tks, Mig. One of my favorites too. Ever since, even after all these years, just from the opening chords alone, I picture her and those crazy a— contortions…And I still get a laugh…💃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Before doing anagrams, I saw an X in one of the words…which led me to EXAMPLE….then thought first puzzle word might be STELLAR. No such luck.

    Started solving anagrams, saw the ING….then SHINING popped up. That was good because I had to back in NUANCE.

    All in all, a STELLAR, not SHINING, Jumble Sunday

  6. Hi Everyone – I also had to back into NUANCE – and MYSELF too. Never heard of this type of star before..

    • Good Morning, Caroline. I didn’t either, until I helped my nephew for school. Or if I did, it definitely didn’t register! Hope your day’s going well. Enjoy! ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Clever puzzle this morning. I must confess I know very little about the solar system so when I saw “G-Type Main-Sequence Stars” I thought “good grief!! However, the really cool drawing and cartoon dialogue enabled me to figure out the final answer. I thought it was a very good puzzle this morning. Wishing all of you a good Sunday.

    • Good Morning, Betty. A very clever puzzle, indeed! And I don’t think you’re alone with the “good grief”! LOL!…But you’re right, the hints are there..Definitely a fun one. Wishing you a good day too, Betty. Enjoy! ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good morning. Today was a good one. Took some time to get the words. I went back a second and third time to finally get them all. I got the bottom three words first then the top half. Person was the last one I came up with.Between phone calls and having trouble with the cartoon I looked up the answer because it’s time to play bocce. Perfect pick for your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you. Good luck with your game..and here’s to you staying well and safe too…☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – Got all the words quickly today. The double letter trick showed HAPPEN right away, and after the UN trick only showed UN-CANE, I saw the NU for NUANCE. “Typical” fit as an answer word but the letters weren’t right. Focusing on ‘stars’ I thought STELLAR, and the X gave EXAMPLE, but when I checked the letters, I saw it was actually SHINING. (Actually, I like “stellar” better, so there! 😂)

    🎵”Sunshine gives me a lovely day,
    Moonlight gives me the Milky Way
    I’ve got the sun in the morning and the moon at night”🎵
    (Written by Irving Berlin, Wikipedia tells me)
    Sung by ETHEL MERMAN! (You might want to turn the volume down before playing this one! 😂)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Made me laugh with “have SHONE themselves before”, Angela.

    “As a SHINING EXAMPLE of a PERSON with a diet issue, I MYSELF can’t tolerate more than a NUANCE of GARLIC, and if I HAPPEN to eat a lot, it may cause an INFLUX of reflux.”

    • A nuance of garlic? 👏🏻👏🏻… But it’s one of the 5 major food groups! 😂 And glad to give you a laugh! Good wishes to you too, Steve. Enjoy! ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Finally got to the Jumble this afternoon. Don’t you hate it when work gets in the way?
    As for Myself, a Person of Nuance, it’s rare when I Happen to use Garlic so a large Influx of that herb is deadly for my taste buds. That tortured sentence is a Shine Example of my overworked brain today. Onward and upward with the Monday Jumble. Be healthy, be safe and behave!

    • You know it’s never too late for the Jumble, OO. I’m way behind schedule myself today too. Have a good night. ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. Myself took a while for me. I solved everything, but the answer took a while. Without a clue, I looked for astronomy type words: mini, mega, spin, gas, helix, etc. It was when I found shine, which led to SHINING, that I solved it. All the G2V stuff was a good misdirection.

  12. Definitely a good one, Dennis. Gotta love the Sunday puzzles! Enjoy your night. ☀️🙋🏻‍♀️
