Crossword Puzzle - March 2014 Answers (Congratulations Denise Smith!)

Hi, there!

When I posted the March Crossword Puzzle on the 25th, I said that I would be giving you all an entire month to solve it, since it occurred to me that maybe a week (which you'd been accustomed to up until now) was a bit short.

As it turned out, the winner didn't need a month, because I received the answers from her the very next day! And the winner is... Denise Smith!

Denise won my January 2014 puzzle, if you'll recall, and she explained to me that the only reason she didn't win the February one, is because she missed it. She's since punched her e-mail address into the newsletter sign-up form on this page, so she never misses another issue. You might want to do the same.

Anyway, this woman is on fire. If you'd like to try your hand at beating her, check back next week. Well done, Denise! Here are your answers:
