Can you work out the twelve words? Pay no attention to the colours of the grid, or to uppercase/lowercase letters!

Solution Still Busy [spoiler] | Comment 5 of 6 |

Great problem. Still trying to solve it.

I was trying to work it out earlier but was rudely interrupted for the thirtieth time today. My offspring charged in like a cross between a maelstrom and the Scarlet Pimpernel. waving her turquoise hat to get my attention (such insolence) and demanding to know if Jefferson was born in Yorkshire. I replied that since he was a President of the USA it could not be in England which has a sovereign. Her second guess of  Wisconsin  was wrong by many a kilometre. Where is the education of today's students?

Thanks Josie.
