My competitive instinct doesn’t get weaker with age – rather the opposite!

Young people prefer to stare at their phones all day, scrolling through Instagram or Facebook. I think It’s important that we try to involve the family in these kinds of things, everyone can participate – and having fun together is always a good thing.

Earlier today, while I was sitting at the dentist waiting for my turn, I encountered this puzzle (below). I think I’ve seen similar ones before, but this one was pretty hard. You need to concentrate and push your eyes and brain to the limits to solve it.
