Most of the time playing games on my smart phone wasn’t fun after a few months, but the new app that was found at the Google Play Store, Daily Celebrity Crossword, showed promise of maintaining my interest. Every day had a new puzzle theme. Doctor Oz advised people to exercise both the body and the mind in keeping fit.

A lot of reviewers complained about the lack of coins earned in playing this on line game. It was fun for me just in understanding the clues enough to solve them. Competing for status on line wasn’t a concern either. There were always people ahead of me with higher coin totals and faster times anyway. It was more important in exercising the mind.

The Bible said:

1 Corinthians 9:27

27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. (NIV)

Romans 8:6

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life
and peace. (NIV)

Granted my enjoyment was only in solving the crossword clues, not having gotten any coins due to quick thinking. or use of the internet. On my first try, it took just over 1½ hours with the use of the internet. My fastest time was this Monday at 25:56. The ironic things were that there were 35 minutes left in the show, The Gilmore Girls, on ABC Family and still had time to switch to The 700 Club, on NBC. The whole puzzle was completed by me without the use of the internet mainly because the clues were easier to recognize.

It felt good my succeeding at something after the fiasco with the Writer Access test. They finally cut me loose this morning by sending me the traditional rejection e- mail and deactivating my account. Since there was no job, my having gone to their Facebook page and pressing the unlike and unfollow buttons were less painful then failing the test. There wasn’t any reason in following or liking a place where one wasn’t working. Coins and acclaim didn’t interest me, having fun made me happy.
