Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Greetings From South Carolina Wish You Were Here

jigsaw puzzle

In 2008, a group of dedicated wooden jigsaw puzzle cutters, all members of the American Game and Puzzle Collectors (AGPC) group, participated in what they named the Puzzle Cutters' Showcase. AGPC member Margie Hillback is credited with the original idea. Sixteen different puzzle cutters each cut a puzzle, all based on the same image, an antique South Carolina postcard. That year's ACPC convention was held in Charleston. The idea was not competition, but rather to see what kinds of ideas, techniques, and diversity would develop.
