I disagree with the number alphabet puzzle's solution. You can write myriad with the letters.

Hi MIF;

For the "It Could Be Verse" puzzle there are three more solutions:

For "Mince Pie Madness" that is the correct solution. You solve it using this equation.

p = 109

Well, unlike "heaps" and "many" and such, "myriad" is an actual number.

The puzzles are nice indeed! And there have been so many new ones in the last couple of days! Keep up the good work!
