Lindy McClean, whose Senior Smart Puzzles published last December has been so well received, announced this month that a second Senior Smart Puzzles book is currently on the market.

"I've received such an enthusiastic response from care givers and Baby Boomers with elderly parents that I have just published Senior Smart Puzzles Book 2," McClean said.

Veronica Spaulding, activity director at Curry Good Samaritan Center, showed appreciation for the availability of a second senior puzzle book.

"I have been using the first book with residents, not just for solving puzzles, but also in stimulating conversation and reminiscences. I think it's fantastic," Spaulding said.

McClean, who is a massage therapist, first recognized a need for something stimulating and entertaining for her older clients in conversations during massage treatment.

She did some research, found nothing appropriate on the market, and decided to fill the niche herself.

McClean noted that the books include picture puzzles, hidden objects, same/different, mazes and more, all appropriate for the aging brain.

McClean has utilized the services of illustrator James Cloutier and Nikki Harris Graphic Design.

"Both books … (are on) my Web site or Amazon.com and phone orders may be placed with BookSurge Publishing, (866) 308-6235," McClean said.

She also noted that high resolution cover images, new sample puzzles, and reviews can be found at http://www.seniorsmartpuzzles.com and she can be reached at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , or by telephone, (541) 469-0864.

  • Fed nods to firmer prices yet still focused on labor weakness
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday reaffirmed it was in no rush to raise interest rates, even as it upgraded its assessment of the U.S. economy and expressed some comfort that inflation was moving up toward its target. After a two-day meeting, Fed policymakers took note of both faster economic growth and a decline in the unemployment rate, but expressed concern about remaining slack in the labor market. "Labor market conditions improved, with the unemployment rate declining further," the Fed said in a statement. "However, a range of labor market indicators suggests that there remains significant underutilization of labor resources."
  • Argentina braces for market reaction to second default in 12 years
    Argentina defaulted for the second time in 12 years after hopes for a midnight deal with holdout creditors were dashed, setting up stock and bond prices for declines on Thursday and raising chances a recession could worsen this year. After a long legal battle with hedge funds that rejected Argentina's debt restructuring following its 2002 default, Latin America's third-biggest economy failed to strike a deal in time to meet a midnight deadline for a coupon payment on exchange bonds. "It is going to complicate life for businesses like YPF which were going to look externally for financing," said Camilo Tiscornia, a former governor of Argentina's central bank. State-controlled energy company YPF (YPFD.BA) needs funds to develop Argentina's huge Vaca Muerta shale formation.
