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.

  • No rest for the Street after a tough January
    Equities took a hit in January, while bond yields and the U.S. dollar jumped. As February kicks off, there will be a slew of corporate earnings and economic data for traders to parse through.
  • U.S. stocks stumble 3% in tumultuous January
    Stocks declined Friday, with equities on track for January losses, after the government reported economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter.
  • U.S. oil spikes 8%, traders eye month-end short covering
    Oil prices rocketed more than 8 percent higher on Friday, their biggest one-day gain in two and a half years, after data showed U.S. drillers were slamming the brakes on the shale drilling boom. In a rally that may spur speculation that a seven-month price collapse has ended, global benchmark Brent crude shot up to more than $53 (35 pounds) per barrel, its highest in more than three weeks, after Baker Hughes data showed the number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States fell by 94 - or 7 percent - this week. Two weeks of relatively stable oil prices have helped shift sentiment after months of decline, setting the stage for the violent rebound on Friday afternoon. With drillers having idled about 24 percent of their oil drilling rigs since the summer, some traders may be betting that an anticipated slowdown in U.S. oil production is nearer than expected.
