Busy . . .

I woke up this morning and there it was, staring at me from across the room. Taunting me. No, it was not the huge stack of dirty laundry or the pile of dishes I could see in the kitchen sink. It was the Rubik's cube.

That's right folks, I have been overcome with some strange obsession with solving this @#$*%?@ puzzle. Forget that there are little children who need to be fed, forget showering. I will not stop until I figure it out!

This could take a while . . .

Good luck! I've never beaten one. I have heard though, that there is a specific pattern of moves, that if repeated over & over again will lead to the solution.

Forget the children, forget the laundry, forget personal hygiene....SOLVE THAT RUBIK'S CUBE!! You are hilarious Zoe! I will be chanting "Go, go, go" periodically throughout the day in your honor....

LOL!!! I LOVE the advice Shelly!! Yes, that use to be my old method - when I was a kid - Sterling has offered to take the cube apart and put it back together for me (his old method) but I am determined!!!

I can know complete the first two rows - it is that third one that keeps getting me! UGHH!! :)

I had a friend once give me a realy great clue....The center block won't ever move. So whatever color is in the center of each side should be the side which that color ends up on....good luck

Take Care,

ARe you kidding me? Can you do it? I can do 1 side really good. It's the other 5 that give me all the trouble.

Zoe, put down the cube and back away slowly while Sterling throws a cover over it!
