WxMan is taking a weeks vacation so we are up to our eyeballs in "Honey-do" projects. So while I am puttering away, here is a Brain Bender twofer to help you waste time at work exercise those braincells. Ready??


The multiplication problem below uses all the digits from 1 to 9 once only. Three numbers have been filled in to get you started. Can you fill in the rest??

Update: Well, we got a good start on the garage. More to follow tomorrow... And in other news, Oddybobo is today's official smartypants! Whoohoo!
