Have a look at Babblers Anonymous beneath the grid. Keep clicking general till you get a list of today's words - the start letter and number of letters in the word. And work from there! That's what I do, once I can't find any more by myself. Or look at Licketys Babble Clues. Link beneath grid.

night adam!

Haz1558

I know! We've been warned to have long sleeves and trousers etc. My only worry is that we have a very restricted luggage allowance on the internal flights, so I'm going to have to be ruthless and take the bare essentials. The balloon trip sounds wonderful, but opinion seems to be divided about it - too hight up and you see nothing, too low and the animals leg it.

Haz - unless it has to be pre-booked (the balloon trip) perhaps you can decide once there?
5:10 am
Jacula

Haz - I'm not v. good at travelling light so I sympathise about the luggage allowances!
5:11 am
FranMag

don't know if you can get in the UK, but Nike makes a material called dri-fit that wicks sweat away from your skin so you can have long sleeved things that will still keep you cool.

Haz1558

Somehow it's not the clothes that I worry about so much as toiletries etc. I'll have to find sample sizes of things. We'll see about the balloon trip when we're there. It's been fun watching 'Bit Cat Diary' as it gives a real flavour of what we'll see. If I spot Toto, the baby cheetah, I'll let you know.
5:13 am
Haz1558

BIg Cat diary - my typing is degenerating.
5:14 am
Atalante

just buy some small empty toiletries bottles, Haz and decant into them ...
5:14 am
Haz1558

Good morning pam, by the way.
5:14 am
pam

Haz--can you make sample sizes in containers of your own?
5:14 am
Atalante

and hi :)
5:14 am
FranMag

i was going to suggest the same thing atalante!
5:15 am
FMitch

Haz, I used to travel a lot, go to somewhere like Boots, or Superdrug, they sell small empty plastic bottles that you can decant your shampoo, moisturisers, cleansers etc into.
5:15 am
Haz1558

Yes, some of the chemists do little bottles for decanting, so I'll probably do that.
5:15 am
Atalante

Boots definitely do them
5:15 am
pam

I have also used small, resealable plastic bags as they take up less room
5:15 am
FMitch

Hi Atalante
LOL all great minds on the same thought!
5:16 am
Jacula

Haz - Superdrug also do those little empty travel bottles.
5:16 am
Haz1558

Yes, and being a dedicated Boots shopper, I have quite a few samples built up of products I use anyway. Sam's problem is going to be shoes. Any thoughts on reducing men's shoes?
5:16 am
Jacula

You need full-size suncream and after-sun though. And shower gel.
5:16 am
Haz1558

And insect repellent!
5:17 am

Haz - Paul wore his heavy shoes and only packed sandals and sandshoes.

Dorens, I don't understand the rankings either, and was always frustrated when I was watching them and had your situation. But I always assumed that it had to do with how many other people's rankings were going up. So if I finished a grid that "everyone" else finished, too, it might not be enough to hold up my relative score. But ultimately, who the heck knows!

10:31 am
ladynoire1013

I live in NC, in the southern US, and we're supposed to get to 100 or so today, which is pretty hot but not unusual
10:31 am

You can send those storms our way - we need the rain
10:31 am

10:32 am
Babbler

ladynoire, want to hear something ridiculous? in the south east, we're having a drought....not cos it hasn't rained, but because the water companies won't repair pipes!!
10:33 am

ladynoire1013

10:37 am
TheFiz

We've had a local town refuse to pass a sewer repair bond for 6 years - this year the sewer pipes burst and dumped tons of raw sewage into the bay, forcing fishing bans and closing beaches - it's not just bureaucracy!

Lightfittings, Lampshades
Deck Designs (backs of playing cards)
Calligraphy Art
10:45 am
Babbler

that's it
10:46 am
TheFiz

Interesting. I like 'em all but especially Name That Tree.
10:46 am
TheFiz

And speaking of naming the icon - Babbler, who's your picture? I can't place it and it's making me crazy
10:46 am
FMitch

LOL where do you get them from. Love the name that tree and Atalante will have a nervous breakdown for the Calligraphy art with all her wonderful work. Great stuff.
10:46 am
Babbler

all in favour say 'Aye'

TheFiz, it's Jilly Cooper : )

10:47 am
Dorens

babbler, has there ever been a theme of selfportraits (i.e., pictures of our own lovely faces?)
10:47 am
featherbee

ever do trains babbler? or children's books
10:48 am
Anj

...ni! : )
10:48 am
Babbler

no, Dorens... but I was around when someone did a South Park self portrait, so I added that to the list. if that counts?
10:48 am
Atalante

yay for calligraphy!
10:48 am
Atalante

can we have pre-raphaelites??
10:48 am
Babbler

I can't remember featherbee, which means we can add them, LOL!

hmm, how about architecture?
10:49 am
TheFiz

bye lady! enjoy your lunch.
10:49 am
Dorens

like that feather
10:50 am
Babbler

I'm pretty sure we've had architecture. But it was a while back so I can add that too.
10:50 am
TheFiz

Dorens - I'm fine with my face - it's the self portrait part that gets me. I'm artistic in other ways but not so much drawing - I wouldn't want you all to get the wrong idea, that I have 3 eyes or that my ears don't line up or something
10:50 am
featherbee

lol fiz
10:51 am
movieman

Babbler - howsabout a Lord of the Rings special?
10:51 am
Babbler

so shall I schedule a self-portrait day and still keep the South Park self portrait day?
10:51 am
Babbler

why not, Movieman! Lord of the Rings / Hobbit, so there's scope?
10:51 am
TheFiz

Pardon me for being dense but what is a South Park self portrait?
10:52 am
Dorens

actually, babbler, i'm not an artist..didn't mean selfportrait,meant photos of selves
10:52 am
Ping

hey, everyone - just checking out the puzzle for today
10:52 am
FMitch

Can we keep it as loose as a self portrait or a photo
10:52 am
movieman

TheFiz - it's a self-portrait done in the style of South Park.....
10:52 am
Babbler

hehee!! you haven't lived, TheFiz! It's this site where you can basically draw your own character, and add whatever you like.
10:52 am
featherbee

would the wizard of oz be too narrow a theme?
10:52 am

I think that's way beyond my skill set

Do you think I can get both my cats and my frog in the same photo without anyone getting eaten?

10:58 am
