Easy Crossword Warm October

A crossword dedicated to the warm October month we experienced. We have had this in the past. And probably we shall experience more hot October months in the future. Due to the world wide climate change.

By Frank Heymans

Oct. 24, 2022

As I said before. Thank you for visiting Indyword.com, dear puzzler.
I have changed the format of the webpages at www.indyword.com, where I put the crossword puzzles. In such a way, that you now are able to play this crossword online, without leaving my website. I hope you will like it.


Thoughts and Feelings about The Clues

In this crossword I have added 3 words, that make the theme of the puzzle.

Here they are:

18A. A memory that came to my mind. I was still a kid in those days. And thus this belongs to the soundtrack of my life. As many songs do. Melomaniac that I am. " 1984 song by Austrian pop rock band Opus." is LIFE IS LIFE. Yes, I must have been 14 years old at that time. Oh my God, time flies.


62A. Trying to keep things simple in life. If it's to big a piece to take. Cut it in pieces. One step at a time, like a turtle, will bring you far. So, "Keep it simple" is LESS IS MORE. Throw away what you don't use anymore and create space for living.


4D. Always think about the long-term. Make sure you can keep going. And don't run into a burnout. So take it easy and take your rest. Don't let your own wheels make you crazy. Thus "no sweat" is EASY AS CAN BE.



More Comments on Some of The Clues

1A. With this quote from the Bible: "...and they could not ___ him" (Matt 17:16).
I was thinking: "... and they could not heal him". But then CURE is the correct solution.


5A. Now this is a difficult clue for me, " Nongrass plant", I am telling you. What is a "non-grass" anyway. Never heard of it, to be honest. It only means that it is not a grass. So the plant-name we are looking for is FORB. Like a sunflower apparently.


20A. Talking about the "Acapulco beaches". The "Riviera of Mexico", with some of the best beaches in Mexico. I was thinking of "coastlines" maybe. But it doesn't fit. The correct solution is PLAYAS. "Beaches" in Spanish.


28A. What is this? The clue is ["Clermont" power]. This isn't easy, that's what I am saying. This seams to refer to the, North River Steamboat of Clermont. The first steamboat in public service, carrying paying passengers between Albany and New York City. The solution is STEAM.


41A. I couldn't let this one pass. The clue being [ "Wordplay" genre, informally ]? What could this be actually? A literary technique and a form of wit in which words used become the main subject of the work. The solution here is INDIE.


6D. Butterflies, I have been seeing many of them, this past summer in my small garden. Even up until this very day. In this warm October month of 2022. Specially since we have planted lot's of butterflies attracting flowers. But what could be a "Butterfly" attire"? In 3 letters. The solution is OBI. Being a belt of varying size and shape worn with traditional Japanese clothing, often decorated with of course butterflies.


11D. When I think about "A Spanish liqueur", the one that comes to mind is "sherry". But this doesn't fit. The solution here is ANIS. Where I knew that people are using anis in France to make liqueur. I was ignorant about the fact it's also being used in Italy and Spain.


36D. This clue reminds me of a film I once saw, or at least I presume that I saw it, in the early 1990-ties, during the Ghent, Belgium, Film Fest. The movie was called "Exotica". The clue here is ["Ararat" director Egoyan ]. The name of the producer being ATOM Egoyan. Being also the solution.


41D. The clue being "Flower called candytuft". Flowering plants support the bio-diversity in our world. We can all use our gardens to help and support the variety of bees and butterflies. By planting and sowing flowers these insects need to survive and reproduce. The solution is IBERIS.


47D. When you are "Asleep at the switch", then you aren't taking care of things as you should do. Maybe you are exhausted? Or maybe you are being overwhelmed by lifes burdens, and you need to take a step back. And recharge your battery. Always take good care of yourselve. Anway the solution here is REMISS.
