NOTE: The original 1997 web site created at http://members.aol.com/valsadie was deleted, along with all the other hometown/members/users AOL domain web sites on America Online, by America Online, on October 31, 2008. A single message sent October 1, 2008 at 5:13 am central time, was the only notice sent to subscribers. I ask your patience with the bad links as the site is restored here on the Valsadie.com domain.

AOL is ON MY LIST!!!!!



Hi! My name is Valerie -- though you can call me Val :> -- and I love doing word find puzzles, so I thought I'd make up a few myself!

Puzzle Web Rings

Yes, this page now is solely concerned with word find and word search puzzles. The various banners, magazine covers, and the quizlet have been moved to the Valsadie.com web site, specifically to the Keeping You Informed page. Check it out :>!

Find out about all of my web pages at the Valsadie Site Guide.

I've come up with three puzzles so far, all three on things I'm interested in at the moment -- Michael Jackson, Hercules & Xena, and Janet Jackson. The words in these puzzles are hidden across, down, and diagonally, both forwards and backwards!

To make it a little challenging, first you have to complete the sentences below the puzzle, which are trivia questions, and these are clues as to what words are actually hidden in the puzzle. Also, to make it interesting, I've included links to the answers in these sentences, so you can find other places on the internet that talk about MJ and Hercules and Xena and Gabrielle and Iolaus and Janet -- well, I'm getting ahead of myself :>!

If you're really stuck though, there are solution pages on all three -- Michael, Hercules & Xena, and Janet.

SPECIAL BOX See the java version of the three puzzles at Valsadie Java Puzzles! You can solve the puzzles right there on your screen by clicking and dragging your mouse. Click over to find out the details.

NEW BOX See the new Java word find puzzle at the Valsadie.com Val's Pop Culture Puzzle and Quizlet Page, which features one puzzle on Latin musicians, one on boy bands, and one on teen female vocalists. And the new puzzle on girl groups is accompanied by a quizlet which asks you to vote for your favorite girl group, from a choice of the Supremes, the Spice Girls, Dream, TLC, Destiny's Child, and Expose'. Enjoy!!

WEIRD AL BOX I'm trying to get MTV to grant "Weird AL" Yankovic their MTV Video Vanguard Award! Check out the banner below -- and go over and sign! (C'mon, you know he deserves it! You know you want to :>! At least click over and read my impassioned letter to MTV about it!)
