I love tracking things down and sniffing things out, mystery and intrigue, searching and researching, finding a needle in a haystack, puzzles, riddles, and things that are clever and thought provoking.

    Looks like everyone’s brain is on summer vacation, so here’s the answer:

    ‘I’ before ‘E’ except after ‘C’.

    For the words next to Atlantic (Ocean), Amazon (River), and Erie (Lake), the ‘I’ comes before the ‘E’. However, for the word next to Caspian (Sea), which sounds like ‘C’, the ‘E’ comes before the ‘I’.
