bbnaz

so stid you see my baby
12:10 am
stidmama

I have 33 words, 334 points, a good place to stop.
12:10 am
bbnaz

i think he needs to do the puzzle first
12:10 am
stidmama

bbnaz, she's beautiful! so is her mama!
12:11 am
battybeyond

i only have 16 so far. you guys are really good :)
12:11 am
bbnaz

Luna will be a grey like her mum
12:11 am
stidmama

he doesn't do the whole puzzle, he has a program that spits out the clues for us... :-)
he always comes on when it's ready
12:11 am
stidmama

how can you tell? she looks really dark right now...
12:12 am
stidmama

or do horses do like humans and have one coat when they're born and then change as they get older?
12:12 am
bbnaz

the hair on her eyelids are already flecked with grey. most likely the rest of her will too as grey is the dominant gene. she will lighten as she sheds her coat each year
well i am going to head to bed and take a whack at this in the morning.
12:13 am
stidmama

cool -- learn wonderful new things every time we talk! see you tomorrow.

1:54 am

Hey Joey - I've been curious as to whether it might be fun to have stats on the last time a word has appeared - like Days before.
1:55 am
licketySplitAUS

What do you think?
1:55 am
joey

i have been playing for quite a while now, and this is the first time that I have seen a not common word repeated like that.
1:55 am
joey

how tough would it be?
1:56 am
rosalind230

you very often have the same words appearing
1:56 am
FMitch

you love your stats don't your likety, you could have like the top 10 most regular and the the 10 rarest?
1:56 am
licketySplitAUS

Not tough - just need all the solutions.
1:56 am
joey

I agree, but they are usually very easy words, the volcano comes to mind
1:57 am
rosalind230

yes
1:57 am
joey

10 rarest would be tough. there are just so many
1:57 am
licketySplitAUS

FMtich - yeah could be interesting - but Rarest - I'd say that'd be about 150,000 ;-)
1:57 am
FMitch

LOL ... very true
1:58 am
gameboyguy13

grr. wank is too a word!
1:58 am

I like extremes - like a puzzle with the least number of words etc.

All A's would do it. But that's not fun.

Morning all. Quick babble before I go off to score in a cricket match.
2:16 am

what is a crossword solver?
2:16 am
mattygroves

A nifty tool where you can plug in as many letters as you have, and the number of letters of the answer, and it'll give you a list of words that fit. Bit naughty, really...
2:16 am

Of course. It's been years since my husband played cricket. His club used to have a mad German woman scoring.

mad + German + cricket.... interesting combo...

that is a crazy clue
2:36 am

Umpire, not referee
2:37 am

thats me finished bye all
2:37 am
Lamancha

Umpire + scorer, Husband and Wife - no chance of any appeals then...
2:37 am
mattygroves

Sorry, yes. And laws, not rules. And innings, not inning. And you don't have to run when you hit the ball. And you carry your bat...
2:38 am

There is a wonderful explanation of cricket in Bill Bryson's Down Under - everytime I read it, I cry with laughter.
2:38 am

Spent last summer explaining it to my fiancee
2:38 am

Don't know, sounds quite appealing to me!
2:38 am

I thought the Scots didn't play much cricket?
2:39 am

Well kept secret...;)
2:39 am

had to tell her it wasn't normally that exciting...
2:40 am

any hints for the en7?
2:40 am

RISH...that's no clue....that's a space station.....the en7 means to make someone excited
2:40 am

Also helped that my GranPa played for Warwickshire
2:41 am
mattygroves

HA!! The first time I watched my husband play cricket, it was a limited overs game, and at the end, I was shouting for them to run, damn it!
2:42 am
Lamancha

No going back after that!

'Tisn't. but the words can be obscure. I haven't got it yet, but try the crossword solver link I gave below.
2:49 am

en7 = to encourage someone (perhaps more recognisable with 'iastic' on the end)
2:49 am

Duh, yes. I'm rubbish at anagrams - I think that's part of my problem.
2:53 am

Hehe, I like the S6/36!

Sprite, the t6/48 is my favourite so far :)

We hang on to each other and try to make it through the motions. It's a bit hectic, with the funeral, the renovation of the kitchen and my starting to work again this week... we both felt yesterday like we don't know what to feel anymore. Exhaustion perhaps ;) Thanks for asking! :)
3:04 am

Heh - anyone know what a Shonky is, and from where the reference is?
3:04 am

There's a high scoring wh6/51, but it's a bit early in the day for a shot of this one.
3:05 am
sprite

It is... nice one, FMitch!
3:05 am
trishtrash

Matty, I don't know the origins, but it means ...dubious, poorly made or thought out; also underhand (shonky car deal dealer)
3:06 am
Svet

Hi matty, i use shonky all the time, "something that's not put together right".Don't know where it comes from but i picked it up in Australia..

any hints for the ho5/24?
3:07 am
Svet


Yeah that's also used here, both are equally good for it i think.
3:07 am

If you read Terry Pratchett, you'll get a new view on Shonky. Heh.

grr that explains y it didnt show up in my word list
3:08 am

Morning Haz, hows you?
3:08 am

Must be, amandacath! We used to have a fish in every grid, for months and months on end.

3:23 am

Le5 is plural of Le4/4, anagram of the christmas N4.
I did not k4 that word, dick, I have it but never tasted it. Sounds nice indeed, for a K-word that is.

Did someone ask for the other Le5? I think it's a musical word for slow.

You should have a button called Prt Scrn or Print Screen - hit that. Go into Word, and click Ctrl+V (that's the Ctrl button and v at the same time). You should have a reproduction of yor screen. You can then fiddle with it to resize. Cheers.

I'm still trying to find the in7 you spoke of earlier, FMitch.
3:54 am

That In7 is misleading. Forget opposite of out. Start thinking black fluid. And make a compound.
3:54 am

Got the in7 - nice word!
3:55 am

I's a strange word, would have thought it was 2 seperate ones. i (3 letters) + an h4.
3:55 am

Got the first three letters - can't imagine what the other four are (in7)
3:55 am

Just try making compounds with it, you'll be there soon enough :)

Molly Ringwald, Molly Malone, Moll Flanders.... I'm still stuck. Even checked out the Gauntlet on IMDB, no Mollys
4:29 am
amandacath

Ok, found it. But what does the Gauntlet or Molly have to do with it?
4:30 am
sprite

It is in the movie itself. People are betting against Clint making it to court with his prisoner Molly. The bets are in the horse races and they refer to it with "Molly No+s4". So I agree it should be a valid word.

Lots of not english is valid for that matter, Enable is a very international source

Hi folks. I'm enjoying the grid but wondering why it allow's Aladdin's Mum (Widow Tw****) and not the 3 'rude' wa words that are sourced from it. It won't allow 'whoo!', 'hoik/s', 'oiks' is ''yonks' either.
5:18 am

Shoah is Hebrew and is a proper noun, meaning, Iiterally, a catastrphic upheaval. Capitalized, it specifically refers to the WW II Holocaust.

5:28 am
Atalante

but didn't people have to do that with the old version of babble?
5:30 am

I think it's easier to forget here because the word box & the chat box are closer together. Before you had to go waaaaay down to the bottom of the page to chat... a very definite movement before chatting.

They are tearing up the bit right in front of my house & extending the driveway. But no mail or school bus untill that's done...

It will be nice to not have the main road so close but until then, what a mess... & with all the rain who knows how long it will take to get the asphalt set?

7:34 am

ITA, miametro... they certainly can't claim they are too dirty... gods know we have had some filthy slang in here (on the grid, even)!
7:34 am
Kallia

beat eggs matty?
7:35 am
Atalante

I think o**wank should be a word too. it sounds amusing
7:35 am
miametro

exactly! lol. i guess it's just not a real word, too slangy.
7:35 am
mattygroves

Got htat one. It's got to be who...
7:35 am
Jera

Mine doesn't seem to be stubborn, just frustrated... just went through a round of testing & he's not autistic, thank the gods...
7:36 am
mamabook3

jera - i'm amazed at how much progres we've made..best of luck to you & your little one!
7:36 am
Jera

Hopefully he will be going to kindergarten this fall, but his birthday is end of September so he might get a waiver to delay strt
7:36 am
mattygroves

If it helps, I knew a little girl who didn't start speaking properly until after speech therapy at aged four -she's now around 10 and you'd never know there had ever been a problem. It's just as if she babbled because she knew that her sister and parents could understand her. I know another little girl who was a selective mute, and now she talks (though is still painfully shy) - there is always hope.
7:37 am

must have that one missing too matty..got all but one

7:37 am
Jen

Jera, we had our little on in speech therapy at 2 (he could only speak like 10 words) and by the time he turned 3, he was talking at a 5 year old level
7:37 am
Jera

That does help, matty, thanks... also talking with movieman lifted my spirits a lot... he was not diagnosed until his 20's & he copes quite well
7:37 am
mamabook3

my boys (twins) have may b-days but were very premie...so we're gonna wait and start them at 6 yrs. I think it'll help them out
7:38 am
Jera

Your son is awesome, Jen, I'd never have guessed he'd ever had a problem.
7:38 am
Jen

{{{aw shucks!}}} Thanks Jera!
7:38 am
mamabook3

have you tried signs or pictures with him to help with the frustration?? I know it sure helped my little one
7:39 am
Jera

Do you need special permission for that in your state, mamabook? Here in Virginia we need a special waiver to delay starting kindergarten... we shall see if Gwyd qualifies
7:39 am
Jera

We are doing some sign language... what happens with pictures?
7:39 am
mattygroves

Still after the wh 5/20 that isn't a street walker...
7:39 am
rolin

yot
7:40 am
mamabook3

nope. kindergarten isn't mandatory so as long as we start them the following year (in k or 1st)there's no problem.
7:40 am
Jera

Where are you, may I ask?
7:42 am
mamabook3

Illinois...take pics of everyday things...sippy cup, potty, plate of food, etc...laminate them and put magnets on the back of them. stick them on the refrigerator. then he can bring you the pictures when he wants something. you start to ask him to say the words when he brings them, and then phase them out as he can say them...works great for frustration.
7:42 am
Kallia

matty..it can be two words
7:42 am
Jera

That's very interesting... I have no training, which frustrates me as well...
7:43 am
mamabook3

pics are easier for children who have motor delays since signs can be difficult
7:43 am
mamabook3

i have a terrific speech therapist...and i've researched on the web
7:43 am
Jera

Oh his fine motor skills are excellent... loves to draw, work with clay... he can write all his capital letters & numbers!
7:44 am
mattygroves

Not the street walker (wh5/20) - I have that one.
7:44 am
mamabook3

it also works for little ones who are stubborn and don't want to do signs
7:44 am

Hurrah - got it. Driving me MAD
7:44 am

matty Imeant the one yu are looking for can be two words

Hi Mikey -- the 'theme' for the icons. Babbler puts up the short list on her profile page, but there is a longer list accessible through Angelsong's resource page. :) It's never an obligation, and in your case, I suspect many of the players would object if you removed you sweet face :)

aargh - not officially banned then. The only books that get banned over here are a threat to the national security (allegedly) the spycatcher is the only one i can think of. The cather in the rye is a classis

books are essential - they teach you lots of things, stuff political correctness! there is a time and a place for getting rid of bigotry and prejudice but the written word is a recording of language at that point in time. The books should be read for there themes and perspectives, beautiful prose and the emotions they inspire - am gettting off me soap box now.

A little boy asks his father, "Daddy, how was I born?" The father answers: "Well son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway. Your mom and I first got together in a chat room on AIM. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your mom and we met at a cyber-café. I upgraded my floppy to a stiffy and then your mother agreed to do a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and said: "You've got male!"

to 5/12 sounds like singular of mice, to 6/21 gets a stick letter in next to last place,
1:02 pm
Minski

to5/12 - if you have the to6/21 remove the 2nd to last letter.

I am off as well to prepare for my student. See you all later.
1:05 pm
stidmama

oh and

YAY Munner!
1:05 pm
MikeyInBerlin

well, Inge; no.....the reason i didn't, is 'cos the word preceding ends in a letter near the end of the alphabet, and is only 1 letter shorter than the word i'm stuck on, so i can't see how anything could follow it, in alphabetical sequence, let alone anything that's like the clues i've seen here? :-/

testing...
1:23 pm
MikeyInBerlin

no, Atalante; and it looks like i'm not likely to now :-( i mean, the words do go in alphabetical order, descending.....and the previous word is only 1 letter shorter, starts with the same first 3 letters, then ends with the 2nd to last letter of the alphabet; so logically, i can't see *anything* that could possibly follow it!!! :-(
1:23 pm
MikeyInBerlin

i had serious connection problems with this page for several minutes there; and have only just now been able to do anything in it again, btw :-/
1:24 pm

any suggestions for the yo words?

baobab

obviously, i'm not awake yet
1:25 pm
MikeyInBerlin

well, apparently it's easier for you, baobob; if you're already on the 'yo' section?
1:26 pm
baobab

no, i'm working haphazardly across sections, versus methodically through them
1:27 pm
MikeyInBerlin

oh, ok
1:28 pm
mary ellen

thank you baobab
1:30 pm

Mikey, the to5/12 is the name of a bird, common in North America. Think of ***head , then add the thirs and second vowels
1:30 pm
Minski

for the 2 long u words add a th word
1:30 pm
baobab

thanks hettie

what do u mean add a th word?
1:31 pm
Minski

hint mikey..... it's no USE.
1:31 pm
MikeyInBerlin

ja, Minski; i tend to agree, at this point :-(
1:32 pm
Minski

no no look at the word I emphacized.
1:32 pm
MikeyInBerlin

there just isn't *anything* possible, from the letters surrounding it, that would create a word to follow the preceding one in aphabetical sequence.....and i'm ready to give up, i really am :-(
1:32 pm
baobab

wait wait mikey
1:32 pm
baobab

i'm getting the clues
1:33 pm
Minski

also try going across to the o on the left and not up to the diagonal o
1:33 pm
baobab

i now have 5 of the 6 to/s...just missing the last to4/4
1:33 pm
stidmama

okay Mikey, I think I have it. you need to move off the third letter of the word and put the last vowel in... then a curvy consonant, then the second vowel...
1:34 pm
stidmama

It's not a common word, and rarely used in this form anyway!
1:34 pm
baobab

mikey, do you have the to6/21 yet?
1:34 pm
hetty

Yes. And it looks loke a rodent with a wrong first letter
1:35 pm
Minski

one last hint....there is a nasty little mite that school age kids sometimes get in their hair and monkey pick off of each other. Change the 1st letter to a T.
1:35 pm
MikeyInBerlin

ach; well if you mean what is sometimes a vowel, Stidmama, then there is no 'curvy consonant' anywhere around it ? :-/
1:35 pm
stidmama

'mornin' hetty (what's left of it, anyway), how's the sunshine up your way?
1:35 pm
Minski

upside down n mikey

take the o to the left of the t

to + upside down n + snake...

1:36 pm

but with a t
1:36 pm
FMitch

make sure you have the correct o - it has to be the one left of the t otherwise it wont work
1:36 pm
MikeyInBerlin

but Minski, that won't follow in alphabetical order?
1:36 pm
stidmama

*you can do it, Mikey*
1:37 pm
MikeyInBerlin

i'm just really ready to pack this in.....it's impossible :-(
1:37 pm
baobab

get the word, then worry about the alphabetical order!
1:37 pm
stidmama

*what baobab said*
1:37 pm
hetty

H Stid. Beautiful day and my husband is out pulling broom(e). I'm finding knoiwing how to help Mikey very frustrating. Wish I had your gift for zoning in on good clues.
1:37 pm
MikeyInBerlin

baobab; nothing i 've been trying works, so far; and if it's not in alphabetical order from the word above it, it won't go in there anyhow! :-/
1:37 pm
saffire

rhymes with mouse?
1:38 pm
MikeyInBerlin

i don't know; i'm starting to think i must be really stupid or something, if it's so obvious to you all, but none of this is making any sense to me? :-(
1:38 pm
baobab

it fits between to broadway award and what you do to a kid's hair
1:38 pm
stidmama

Mikey -- what creature do cat's like to chase and play with?

I'm sorry, but "owie" is TOO a word. :)

me too, CadFan! I use it every time I prune the roses!
1:39 pm
baobab

the first to6/21 is something that has the quality of a broadway award
1:39 pm
MikeyInBerlin

ja, stidmama; but this is a 'to' word.....'to5,12'?
1:39 pm
FMitch

to plus the 3 letter word in minskys post : hint mikey..... it's no USE
1:39 pm
stidmama

yes, Mikey -- put a t where the m usually goes. *just try it*
1:40 pm
Minski

don't worry about if it works, just enter it
1:40 pm
zajewel

sigh
1:40 pm
baobab

the second to 6/21 is what you do to a kid's head, and inbetween the 6 letter words are the broadway award and the sounds like a small rodent but isn't--does that help with word order??
1:40 pm
MikeyInBerlin

ja; so i understand, baobab.....but there's nothing in alphabetical sequence i've been able to see/find that fits that, there??? god; i'm ready to tear my hair out, i really am! :-/
1:40 pm
Minski

sometimes if I understand a hint but can't find the word on the grid I just enter it and then find it later.
1:40 pm
stidmama

zajewel... there there.
1:41 pm
MikeyInBerlin

ja, Minski; i would enter it, if i knew what it was? but i've even monkey typed everything possible :-(
1:41 pm
stidmama

Mikey -- there is NOTHING to understand... :-)
{{{HUG}}} breathe, extend and relax --- now, type!
1:41 pm
baobab

okay, list what you have mikey, we might be able to tell you where it fits in... that might be a better approach to problem solving in this case
