    I do a lot of on screen jigsaw puzzles, they can be uploaded as .exe files if you don't have the software, one forum I'm on has a weekly one but some virus checkers take ages to allow running it.
    For those with the software a completed puzzle can be saved with a file extension of .pzp which can be uploaded or emailed as an attachment, others can then download and open in their own puzzle software.
    The software allows any image to be made into a puzzle, number (and shape) of pieces can be set from about 18 to 1200, size of screen and one's eyesight will have some bearing one what one chooses. "Doing" a puzzle involves picking up a piece with the mouse and placing it in the jigsaw, if you get it inthe right place it locks in place with a click and a momentary star alongside
    Software is not free, cheapest version (entry) is $9.99, the only difference between that and the dearer ones is the number of sample puzzles included.

    Certainly a way to pass the time while in lock down, have fun.

    Here's one for you. The dog breed emoji quiz. I don't have the answer sheet just yet and there's a few I'm struggling with. Have fun:

    3,5,14 & 16 are the ones I'm completely bamboozled by. I have an idea for 6, but it doesn't quite fit.

    Doh! Of course it is!

    Where's my dunces cap.

    I'm thinking West Highland terrier for 6, but the terrier bit doesn't fit.

    Sussed 5 now. Knew what type of dog, just didn't know there was one from that country.

    Got 16 too. Just 14 to figure out.

    I think I have them all now. A bit of lateral thinking required for 14 and its quite an obscure breed.

    Don't kill the messenger.

    I'm not convinced by bearded collie. Bearded I get, but in my mind - E is not collie (call E). I had it as Griffon (gruff phone minus E).
