Any salt on the easy one? I'm slow tonight. Must be the excitement of the tangathon.

The stove doesn't seem to fit. The word I'm getting doesn't make any sense.

I'm stuck on 13x7. I am not sure what to do with the result...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
I know it either starts with a C or a P, as that seems to be the pattern of this hypercross puzzle. That leaves me with 'PR???C?' or 'CR???C?'. "Cloud nine" keeps popping into my head, but that doesn't fit.

Could it have to do with the year 1991?

What do you get when you multiply two numbers? Starts with "P".

I'm thinking red is the opposit of green and blue is the opposite of orange.

Not sure and haven't solved it yet. I thought maybe green/red and orange/apple? Maybe green as in fresh or new with an antonym of "old"?

I'm not even sure I have the first two right even though I can only think of one obvious antonym for each.

See, I got Blue because I took the words literally...Going from Green (blue and yellow) to Orange (red and yellow), you lose blue and gain red. However, I suspect I'm on the wrong track.

I don't know if the intended antonym of "lost" is "found", or "won". Neither one's helping me any. :|

The comment thread mentions two possibilities for the "lost" antonym. If not "found", what else? "Gained"?

How about "saved" for an alternate for the first one.

It's not found, and you're on the right track with the opposite colors. Don't forget the symbol to the right of the words.

It also helps if you have little kids (or can remember your childhood)

Solved it.

I really didn't like the 'opposite colour' thing. Red is the 'antonym' of green, that's fine to me because of traffic signals; red means stop, green means go. Hell, they're only 'opposites' by paint-mixing standards - by light-mixing standards they're independent. But orange/blue just seemed contrived to me. "Apple" seemed like the logical puzzle antonym to "Orange" ("that's like comparing Apples and Oranges") - and the whole lost/found herring, and the choice of using the Jesus-fish / Ichthys turned upright to make us wonder about the symbology and orientation seemed to be a little too much deliberate fog.
