 Feed the Birds (Posted on 2003-11-28)
Bird feeders are much appreciated by our feathered friends during the cold winter months. One chilly morning, Mrs. Allison and four neighbors each filled her feeder with a different kind of food and watched a different type of bird come for a bite.

From the information given, determine the number on each woman's house, the type of food she put out, and which bird she saw.
1. Cake crumbs were put out by Mrs. Brewer's next-door neighbor, while Mrs. Chandler put out toast.

2. Mrs. Emery, who did not see a sparrow, lives at number 8. Mrs. Dennis is not at number 10.

3. Mrs. Allison was visited by a thrush, while a robin enjoyed a taste of suet.

4. Birdseed was put out at the house located between the one where a cardinal ate and the one visited by a sparrow.

5. The blackbird visited the bird feeder at number 2, which was not filled with bread.

What do you know?
I guess I wasn't really done after all.
You know, maybe the problem was childishly easy, but that is why it was posted early in the day. You see Flooble likes to give the mental midgits like myself a chance to stop drooling in our sippy cups and actually work a puzzle we enjoy. We realize it must be annoying to you, but chill out, take a moment to shine up your Nobel prize in Math.
Be patient. We won't clutter up your vision for too long and then we will fade back into our trogldyte obscurity.

I know, why don't you take a moment to prove Herons whatamacallit only using arithmatic, and a Captain Crunch decoder ring. When you do, post the results in teh forum. Someone is looking for it over there.
