Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 68, Blocks: 37 Missing: none – this is a pangram. Spans: 2 This is puzzle # 10 for Mr. Farmer.
Jim Horne notes:

Rather remarkably, not only are there no missing letters but the four rarest letters in Crossword puzzles, J, Z, Q, and X, are placed symmetrically in the four corners. Bravo.
