Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

WRFD (880 AM, "The Word 880 WRFD") is a radio station in Columbus, Ohio. WRFD is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission as a daytime-only radio station, operating with a daytime-only non-directional power of 23 kW. The station signs off at sunset to protect WCBS in New York. The current license holder is Salem Media of Ohio, Inc.
WRFD was originally aimed at the agricultural market (hence the use of RFD), and had its studios and transmitter located on East Powell Road in rural Delaware County, north of Columbus. Currently, the transmitter is located near Cooper Stadium just outside of downtown Columbus, Ohio on the same tower as WCOL. WRFD began broadcasting in 1947 and was owned and operated by Peoples Broadcasting Company, an affiliate of Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company which is now known as Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company (the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation was Nationwide's founding member). In 1961, WRFD opened a sibling FM station, WRFD-FM. By the 1970s, WRFD-FM had changed its call sign to WNCI. WRFD was later sold to its current owner, Salem Media of Ohio, Inc.
WRFD has a variety of voices for the station. Anne Rea hosts weekday mornings from 7am to 10am; Jason Whitt takes the board from 10am to 3pm. On weekends, Vince Tornero is the Sunday voice of the station.Linda Harvey with the group Mission America which was designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.In August 2011, Linda Harvey stated on her weekend radio show that "There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human," as well as also stating the same month and year that openly gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools. Earlier in 2011, Harvey had said that gay rights advocates were "masters of demonic manipulation" while speaking as a guest on Peter LaBarbera's radio program. She has also referred to the "It Gets Better" video project as "wrong, it's evil, it's dark." In that same broadcast she referred to LaBarbera as her good friend. LaBarbera heads the organization "Americans For Truth About Homosexuality."
The Word also has several live talk shows. Bob Burney hosts Bob Burney Live on weekdays from 3:30pm to 6pm on weekdays. On Saturdays, there is "Listen to Your Money," "Saving Face," and "Saturday Live," hosted by Columbus radio legend Tom Wiebell.
In the 1980s, WRFD was sold and has since operated with a Christian talk radio format. Nonetheless, the station maintained a daily broadcast schedule of farm news and agribusiness information. In the late '90s, the farm program adopted the brand Ohio Farm Radio.
One widely-known WRFD farm broadcaster was Ed Johnson, who hosted the program from 1967 until 1972. Leaving WRFD, he founded The Agri Broadcasting Network (ABN) which he owned and operated until his death in February 2001. The longest serving Farm Director at the station during the Salem Years was Joe Cornely, who broadcast daily farm news and information until 1998, when he joined the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation staff. He was followed by Darrin Johnston, who was replaced in 2002 by Andy Vance who left Salem Communications in 2005 to found the Buckeye Ag Radio Network, and later acquire Johnson's ABN Radio.
In 2005, Salem executives, with hopes of providing a more consistent programming schedule, decided to discontinue WRFD's agricultural programming.
