 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.

Yeah, but isn't toast bread? I make toast out of bread. Sometimes I forget about it and the little internal switch mechanism in the toaster doesn't release and I start a fire and spend a week trying to get the smell out of the walls. Some people say they like burnt toast. I don't really believe them, I just think they are too proud to admit that they left it in the toaster too long so they pretend to enjoy it. It takes a lot of courage to admit you made a mistake. Especially when it means some people won't respect you anymore. No one ever said life was going to be easy though.

My girlfriend (ex-girlfriend actually, but we still - you know) weighs about a hundred pounds. If I throw her into a river whose current is 6 miles per hour, will I have time to finish my toast before she drowns?
