I've always enjoyed trying to solve these puzzles, but not the headaches I get soon after. I got half of them right on my own, but used your help to get the rest done correctly. Thank you for the solutions.

Hah A A Zavia i can understand the headache part as I, myself, am one of those people who cannot stand riddles, puzzles, problems, unsolved for extended period of time...diluting oneself until we reach the answer! and that's why i finally updated the solutions to save our dear fellow writers' healthy minds from this frustration. ;)

Getting half of them correct yourself ...well i must commend your stamina and logic! Pretty good! =) Im glad it was of help to you.
