A train, a word soup and a Canadian

I was returning home on a train last night. Sat beside me was a Canadian lady. I noticed she was doing, just to while away her journey time, a word soup in a monthly puzzles magazine. So, I pointed out how I’d used these when I was learning Spanish and years later Russian. Naturally, I saw the basic similarities between a word soup puzzle and the current ciphers I decrypt. I don’t often promote this web site in person but I gave this Canadian lady my web address.
