There are no tricks, just pure logic, so good luck and don’t give up:

1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours.

2. In each house lives a person of different nationality

3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

1. The Brit lives in the Red house.

2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.

3. The Dane drinks tea.

4. The Green house is on the left of the White house.

5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.

    Love these ideas. Would have enjoyed doing any one of them. Instead, I spent the snow day stranded at Midway airport trying to get to Philly. Actually, I started out on Saturday the 19th, so I spent TWO days stranded at Midway. Didn’t get to Philly till Monday. I did eat two helpings of avgolemono soup at Pegagus on the Fly at the food court at Midway — if you’re ever there, give it a try; it’s yummy!
