Google-phobe (and clue-search-phobe): that'd be me.BarbaraK wrote: ↑Sun Jan 31, 2021 11:58 amThere really aren't all that many one-named singers, so unless you're a total google-phobe, you should google it and look through the list. That way you'll be likely to recognize it when you solve.otlaolap wrote: ↑Sun Jan 31, 2021 8:54 am An artificial solace, sure to be demolished on Monday, is that I do not know a darn thing about pop singers except for one or two words that appear over and over in puzzles (like esne and etui used to), so I tell myself that if the answer is visible in the puzzle then I will not see to recognize it, but the solace is solely artificial because I simply see no mechanism (other than prairie dogs) that might reveal the answer.
As soon as I see singer (or the like), I just give a quick glance and move on.
I used to do the google thing just to prove to myself that I could solve the puzzle despite the handicap, but I guess I've moved past that.
(Yes , just now looking back at the posts...that's how far I had moved past it )
