Being puzzled may not be a good thing, but in this instance it may be. I live with a self-described “puzzlephile,” who enjoys puzzles on the computer. Some research even believes that puzzles help strengthen your brain synapses and memory recall. All the scientific hypotheses aside, puzzles are just fun. It's summer and you may have some time on your hands, or you may just want to keep the children occupied. If so, try some of the following puzzle websites.
