Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me...I'm still not very good at seeing patterns or strategies, and in going through the archive, I cannot for the life of me figure out what I'm missing with this puzzle.  I'm sure there must be an obvious pattern or something that I'm missing, since I shouldn't have this much trouble with an easy puzzle.  Would appreciate any and all advice!

Here are some spots that you should be able to deduce right away, and each one should lead you to several others. Good luck with it!

Here are some other locations where something can be determined:

1. The 2 below the 0 on the left (row 8 column 2), along with the 3 to its right
2. The 3-2-3 diagonal as mentioned
3. The 1 on row 9 column 6, and as a result, row 10 column 5's 2
4. The 2 on row 3 column 4 and head up and right

Good luck!

Thanks to everyone for their assistance....obviously, I've still got a long way to go, but hopefully picking up some basics will help me get over the proverbial hump.  Cheers!
