12:25 am
Cat9x

deader than a doornail :)
12:25 am
hetty

Yup, a Celtic one. But I no longer play at all well. It's just an instrument you have to play as if you love it--stroking the strings.
12:26 am
stidmama

yes, a dear friend is an excellent harpist. You would like her. I haven't had the time to try to learn, but someday... :-)

Long, long may our hearts with these memories be filled/ Like a vase in which roses have once been distilled--you may break, you may shatter the vase if you will/ But the scent of the roses will hang round it still.
Good night all, blessings
12:33 am

The one thing that comforts me too, is that I was there when she took her last breath. As she was there when I took mine.

i tried starting the oriental poppies from seed w/no luck. started them from nursery plants, had to move them to a sunnier spot. took 3 years in all to the 1st bloom - well worth the wait. have divided them several times siince. they like dry sunny location.

When I started babbling, someone told me (I believe it was Atalante) that only looking up the actual words through a solver was considered cheating. All the rest was... research :)

my monkey is getting tired lol
3:22 am
Atalante

me? wow, I'm clever sometimes :) But I agree - how are you meant to learn without be interested and looking stuff up!

I don't know about being a dog's master. When mine returns from a weekend at the kennel (as today), he won't even LOOK at me until I've groveled, scratched, offered treats, and generally apologized for even being here. you've not been insulted until you've been ignored by the dog.

9:49 am
EvaNadine

well, i waited long enough to give them ample opportunity to clean it up...i realize my desk is rather messy, but i prefer not to keep it flat out DIRTY!
i swear, all they do is come in + empty the garbage cans -- and sometimes they dont even give you a new can liner, they just dump out the contents of the trash + put the can back with the old, dirty liner!

and god forbid you ask them to vaccuum!
9:49 am

any clues on the ci's? i have the one that's like money, but not.

What could these Th's be - I have the small one, the one with too many vowels (th4/5), the one that one may have a sore of if they smoke too much

Been there, done that, and most of the time it was really fun. One year we even got to do rapelling and whitewater rafting.
10:23 am

It is fun, except that every once in a while someone didn't properly tarp there tent and became drenched in a torrential downpour!

10:25 am

I start chemo again tomorrow for three cycles. Not looking forward to it, but hope the end result will be good. My nurse sister says this time it will be like putting my hand back in the blender! since I know how awful the side effects are.

smithchick, let me try this once again. Back to camping--I had never gone camping as a kid. When we lived in Germany, my husband and I bought a huge tent and took a 3 week camping trip through Germany, ferried to Denmark and up through Sweden. It gave us some great memories.

oh oggy, things were bad when I first logged in, but seem better now. I have no idea why the site has been so strange recently -- I know IronSudoku has also had some trouble.

12:20 pm
caitlyn

Can someone answer a question please.... Why do you loose points by not finishing a grid?? I couldnt yesterday because of site problems
12:21 pm
hurshy

caitlyn, have you read the rankings explanation? it's an average of the percent of points you get on your puzzles... better for rank not to play at all than to partially play
12:21 pm
gramma

I'm back and trying to put in all the words that I couldn't enter earlier. It's the 1st beautiful day in a looong stretch and I'm inside. Thitting in my thoft chair. I could une help w/th words.
12:21 pm
abe79

there's a formula for scoring on the rankings page, however, it is rough to be penalyzed for not finishing when there are 'technical difficulties'
12:21 pm

12:26 pm
hurshy

yeah that clue is a bit off
12:27 pm
abe79

the trick is, cadfan (it took me awhile too) is the incorporate the vinegar partner with the other vowel. let me see if i can think of another way to state it
12:27 pm
hurshy

you should put th + vowel + the anagram
12:27 pm

Okay, have you got the st5/10 - the furry creature? Take away the last letter, you have a greek colonnade (who'd have thought?). Then you can make it a latin plural by adding a vowel, then replace it with another vowel for another st5/10

5:56 pm
anders

5:56 pm
Anniebrook

hetty, t*** t + what bullfighters say
5:57 pm
hetty

With my crazy typing trhat probbaly doesn't add up to a lot of sense-- in my list the missing to4 comes between the 2 with the "l" plus either "e" or "u''
5:58 pm
Erda

I have 6 to**s -- is that it?
5:58 pm
FranMag

hetty, there isn't one there, i think you're missing the to4/7 that sounds like what miss muffet sat on
5:58 pm
hetty

so I have the word you've clued, Annnie, and also a word that looks like TOFU gone wrong. What's between them?
5:59 pm

6:01 pm
