hi mark!
12:11 am
markbowers7

sorry, ri/624 = puzzle, 7 is plural
12:11 am
markbowers7

hi stid mama, how goes it?
12:11 am
stidmama

jillibus, when the puzzle first starts, we try to find as many words as we can, and then when we find the bigger ones, we give the starting letter and the count... does that make sense to you?
12:12 am
stidmama

going well, mark! I am glad this is a smaller grid. :-) You?
12:12 am
hetty

plural, mark Let's be meticulous here
12:12 am
hetty

you put yourself right ahead of me! Well done
12:13 am
markbowers7

im ok...to me a small grid would be 40 easy-to-find words...i'll be lucky if i find half in here
12:13 am
stidmama

well, I'll help if I can, though it's still early...
12:14 am
markbowers7

tr6/21 - plural or tr5/21 = "in a flash"
12:14 am
jillibus

Thanks for the help, stid. I was so busy with the grid I didn't notice your tip until now!

ok ive only got 5
12:16 am
stidmama

Jillibus, the "clues" are Lickety's contribution to the good of Babble-kind... he has a computer program he runs that tells us how each word in the grid begins (first two letters), the number of letters in that word and the total points of the word. He's an angel.
12:17 am
hetty

tr5/12, mark
12:17 am
misshoax

the clues haven't been showing up for me all day. just the masthead. boo.
12:17 am
stidmama

Anyway, Lickety's Clues have a link in the "Friends of Babble" section at the bottom of the page. I usually open his site in a new window so I can go easily between his page and Babble.
12:17 am
markbowers7

tr5/12 = "in a flash"
12:17 am
ShadeEagle

I'm sitting on 22, but that's partially due to computer issues and wandering away
12:18 am
markbowers7

tr6/21 = plural of 5/12
12:18 am
stidmama

I have 45, only 103 to go...
12:18 am

12:19 am
markbowers7

it doesnt allow fairie...alt spelling of fairy!
12:19 am
stidmama

ty jfarber! I just saw it!
12:20 am
misshoax

you know what, it seems to be a safari issue, as i just checked in firefox, and it was fine. i suppose i should have thought of that sooner. but lickety should know.
12:20 am
mirandapan

I'm new, and I don't understand how to find the clue list. I've just been depending on the clues that ya'll give. Where is the clue list? Thanks
12:20 am
jfarber

Welcome...happy to finally be up late enough to play this "end" of things, stid!
12:20 am
stidmama

I know mark, it's a totally dis-abled dictionary, in my oh-so-humble opinon!

12:20 am
stidmama

12:21 am
stidmama

12:25 am
stidmama

12:26 am
markbowers7

12:26 am
stidmama

12:27 am
stidmama

12:30 am
Krys10

no no, when did you discover babble? I still think it's so random that I ran into you at all - I barely play anymore - more of an IronSudoku girl..
12:31 am
Krys10

just finished work and arrived home a few minutes ago
12:31 am
Krys10

and i've been babbling since summer 2004
12:31 am
jfarber

Um...came in about two months ago, maybe. I tend to be late to the party, as games go -- mostly use the internet for blogreading, mp3 downloading, and other web 2.0 stuff.
12:32 am

12:44 am
helenkeller

wow - i was just reading the recent chat - very commendable ren - it's tough, i took care of my parents, both sick at same time, died less than 6 months apart (a long time ago now, 20 years next year) i'm just saying - i understand how incredibly difficult & draining that is- but you will never regret the sacrifices you are making to do whatever it is you are doing for your mom
12:44 am
stidmama

jfarber, how much longer is school in session for you?
12:44 am

stidmama

oh, I did night auditing one summer in college-- not a good fit. I am a morning person...
12:45 am
renfield

thanks helen....it's an experience! and my mom is such a sweetie!
12:46 am
jfarber

Krys10, the only thing I can think to say about our comparative scores would REALLY dredge up the past...
12:46 am
saphyre

one block from my house which is better than the 140 miles a day I was driving
12:46 am
Krys10

oof, that does seem late. I forgot about the snow-day factor
12:46 am
helenkeller

ren - i can feel your love - awesome
12:46 am
stidmama

our school lets out midday on June 21. I think that's awfully late into the summer. Would prefer starting a week or two earlier and finishing earlier, myself (as a parent, not a teacher)
12:46 am
jfarber

I am nocturnal, by nature. But I DO Like getting home to the kids before 3 every day.
12:46 am
Krys10

JF, behave yourself ;)
12:46 am

hey, helen-- very profound & sweet words of wisdom
12:46 am

Used to teach prep school -- we got out June 4th or so...and came back Sept. 1. NICE.
12:47 am
jfarber

LOL.
12:47 am

that's nice that you can live so close. It sure is nicer to walk a block than drive for several hours!

12:48 am
saphyre

12:48 am
Krys10

nope. i sure do miss them :) earthquake drills instead - not as exciting nor as quiet. I really miss the snow, actually - never though I'd say that!
12:48 am
libarebel

I liked yesterday's icon better, too, helen brb...
12:48 am
jfarber

On the other hand, that means you miss paying other people to plow your driveway...
12:48 am
helenkeller

lol lib :)))
12:48 am
stidmama

go to "My Account" in the top right of your page. There will be an edit or update section. Choose your country to get the flag, and say whether you are girl or boy to get a purse or purson...
12:48 am
stidmama

jfarber -- jillibus IS pro already!
12:48 am
Krys10

i never had to plow the driveway - I managed to convince my dad that I was afraid of teh snowblower until I left for college.
12:49 am
jillibus

Well, I thought I did.
12:49 am

Just checked out your web site. Good to see that everything you do is also all done by hand. I think there is a lot to be said for the old fashioned ways. Modern technology can make things a little TOO perfect. I must take a leaf out of your book and give it a go.

We look forward to your custom in future lives.

Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias at this time was "oh no not again". Many theologists have argued that if we knew why the bunch of pegonias thought this, we would know a great deal more about the universe.

helen-went to college in chicago many, many years ago...during the 1st Mayor Daley. 67-72. Lived in Hyde Prk. Hven't been back since. Remember mainly the incredible wind during the winter, the heat and smell of dead fish in teh summer, lots of wonderful places to eat, and the art museum. And, of course the riots, the democratic convention and other little things like that

2:36 pm
stidmama

It's a German dance, very funny, very fun, eva
2:36 pm
Eva

I plead guilty to u of c, but at the time had no idea it was such a smarty pants place---was just doing what one does at that age-figuring out who you are away from you family, entering the terrifying world of sex, etc. Why won't anyone tell me what a chicken dance is? is it a secret, like the masonic handshake or something?
2:36 pm
helenkeller

stid - good friend's sister lives in st. charles, we visit her pretty often - very nice place, i wouldn't exactly call it small (small compared to chicago, but large for a nearby town, very pretty, with fox river running through it)
2:37 pm
Eva

stid-the stuffing ones are just like the others, but different vowel(s) at the end-french word for stuffed.
2:38 pm
stidmama

my sister-in-law and her husband are hoping it will be a good place to raise their family. I haven't been there (actually haven't been east of the rockies in over 15 years..)

2:38 pm
helenkeller

lol eva, you are cracking me up - see, all eva is a grad of one the very best universities in the country & certainly, by far (in my humble opinion) the best one around here! and yet, sadly, never exposed to the chicken dance, but she could probably build a nuke, lol
2:39 pm

oops -- that ic.
2:39 pm
helenkeller

that was suppposed to read: see, all, ...
2:39 pm
stidmama

sorry Cruella, the second vowel in the ir is the same as the first...
2:40 pm
stidmama

okay, done with the fa words, on to the fi...
2:40 pm
Eva

lol-can't build a nuke...failed my physics classes, taught by a mad physicist from the Enrico Fermi Institute. But am definitely weddingly challenged. Almost on one I know has gotten married, or if they have it was a very humble thing, and Jewish weddings don't include the chicken dance-at least not that I've noticed.
2:40 pm
helenkeller

so eva, the chicken dance is played to a really catchy tune, you make little clucking gestures with you hands, at eye level & then there is a part whre you kind of twist down while doing that - i've seen it at alot of polish and czech weddings too
2:41 pm
kkiln

any help appreciated for the ad words

uh, much more hokey, but similar in terms of energy & everyone gets up to do it, young & old alike
2:43 pm
Eva

yes- chair dance and of course the hora (of babble fame). The last Jewish wedding I went to was Sephardi, men and women dancing separately, from Syria and Greece, and the women belly danced. Wow! Talk about sensual!

2:44 pm
hetty

Stid, the stuffing words are french for what in English id called "force(meat)" (change vowel to the "a" and the second vowel to the third)...don't pluralise simply add another second vowel
2:44 pm

My "husband"and I have been, as he says, "happily unmarried" for 17 years. Were already in our 40's when we met and couldn't see a reason to do the legal thing. Might wake up some day and decide it has some meaning. Sometimes think about it when I want a blender, or a matching set of plates, or some decent silverware, but probably easier ways to get those.
2:51 pm
