Adlewyrchant flodau tlysion
Yn ei dyfroedd glân:

Am anwylion Cymru,
Ow! na chawn fy mhwrs yn llawn,
A chred a dawn i'm denu,
Adre'n ol i blith fy nheulu,
A chyfeillion i'm croesawu:

A'i dyffrynoedd glân;

Nid y byd a'i olud drud,
Sy'n denu bryd y prydydd;
Ond afonydd, gwyrddion ddolydd,
Swn yr awel yn y coedydd,
Cymau, glynau, bryniau bronydd,

Cara'r cybydd bwrs yn llawn,
A dyn a dawn ei dyniad;

1:25 am

Frances, I've been listening to CNN on the same subject -- grim - but at least they know about it unlike 9/11 and last July in London
1:26 am

Yes. Major disruption but, if it keeps people safe - at least they wake up tomorrow!
1:27 am

Well fu4/12 me! I've not been watching any news. What and where?

Actually, one reassuring thing about words in the chatterbox is that it's reassuring to know that you're not the only one who tries some very odd words in the hope that they'll take!

It starts off easily enough but there are lots of peculiar words.

There are two normal ones - a preposition and a sign or portent. Three others have an 8 beginning and the last one, od7/32 sounds like a plea from someone to give money

i just mean the 4 of them just sitting there.. for some reason when theres a string of letters like that it distracts me. or, i have a harder time keeping track of what i've covered/tried already
4:28 am
Haz1558

I've finished the grid, FMitch, but only because I've used morewords even more than usual. It's not easy today!
4:29 am

True, svc, that is distracting especially when you think you're building off one letter and another one takes the credit.

4:35 am
scv

what happened?
4:35 am
Haz1558

There's a good-looking, though old-fashioned cab (ha6/24)
4:35 am

Manchester airport seems to be coping and getting planes away
4:35 am

Apparently there are no flights from Belfast into Heathrow today. There's a big security scare going on.

4:36 am
Haz1558

Ah yes, but then Belfast flights are always treated as being potentially dangerous anyway.
4:36 am
FMitch

All UK airports are on the highest alert, there have been terrorist arrests and at the mo there are no flight in or out of Heathrow whilst they clear the backlog
4:36 am

4:40 am
PappouTed

LOL, beast, I saw that too
4:40 am

5:18 am

Sorry its wordbiz not wiz, lol. Its very good, just google it, you can play from anywhere with an internet connection worldwide, there are some idiots but you can make up a noplay list to stop them, and its free.
5:19 am

thanks for the info.
5:24 am
carolecs

your welcome
5:28 am
carolecs

Nice thing is also you can play short games, 3-5 mins up to 40 plus, i like the short ones as less time for people to cheat
5:31 am
P.J.

I wish I would have knowen about it befor I baught mine. Being a new computer person these are the things Im learning as I go along.
5:39 am
carolecs

well you can have the best of both worlds as you can pause, make tea etc, with the online one you have to abort if something happens or adjourn and hope to replay within 48 hours or the game goes, so don't be sad.

Mornin' all from Atlanta, GA. I've been doing a quick first run through the grid--made it to 76 in less than half an hour so that's good enough for me to take a break to run to Wal-Mart. Early is better there. Our small town has the distinction of having been the VERY FIRST store to be ope 24 hours a day!
6:27 am

in your state ?
6:28 am

Yep, a suburb south of Atlanta about 20 minutes from the airport--Riverdale, Georgia--our only claim to fame except for very colorful local politics.

first Walmart to stay open ??? Around here the people demonstrate against Walmart staying open all nigth. They succeeded in one case. Walmart has to close at midnight/

5 hours last night beats the last two combined nights, but off steroids now so nights will get better.
6:31 am

BBL - Have to get myself going while I have the energy. Enjoy your day and pray that the good guys will win.
6:31 am
lynxxx

so, 24 hour stores are not common in the States? what about 7/11s and supermarkets. We commonly have this type of store open 24 hours now - been so for the last 15-20 years I think. It is great esp if you work and good parttime employment for younger people - that is actually where my student daughter is now - doing a late shift.
6:31 am
Munner

That's win in the war against terror.
6:33 am
inge

o yes, they are common, but not liked by thei neighborhoods. People come from Detroit to shoop at our Meijers, one of the first to stay openall the time. Even on holidays.
6:33 am
lynxxx

You are talking about London, yes? It is just awful - again. I think this may just be a fact of life now, Good to see you are feeling better - trust it will continue.
6:34 am

We live about 30 miles outside of Detroit.

These Meiher stores exist only in the Midwest. They still offer penny rides for the kids.

Britsh police/intelligence have intercepted a plot to blow up US bound planes. The plan was to use explosive liquid. Nine planes were to be targeted, 21 people have been arrested.

harpjane

Iwhat would this regis fellow be known for?
10:30 am
Anniebrook

they planned to have the planes blow up over the Atlantic
10:30 am
Haz1558

They think that they were going to blow up planes. Explosive liquid was to be smuggled aboard in drinks cans, then set off mid-air.
10:30 am
hetty

and everyone who would have been flying across theAtlantic today is totally discommoded--all luggage being examined etc. etc
10:30 am
Cathyar

now i need the last two to5's
10:30 am

10:31 am
ladynoire1013

Okay, back
10:31 am
Cathyar

to5/10 is plural of the to4/4 before it
10:31 am
phandmd

10:31 am

passengers are not allowed to bring any liquids on the plane, including water,lotions, and perfumes

nut for president,,,she would be out second nut-ty president after the peanut king of course
10:31 am
mab

we can no longer board aircraft with carry on luggage or liquids. i think we ought to simply board nude - what could be simpler?
10:31 am
Anniebrook

or cell phones or laptops, too
10:31 am
hetty

Haz, Britain must be totally devastated. Thank God the plot was discovered.
10:32 am
Kateq

ty--had the singular--going the other way
10:32 am
hurshy

wait, what's this about no carry on luggage?
10:32 am
Haz1558

Mothers with infants are being required to taste their baby's formula to prove it isn't poisoned/contaminated.
10:32 am
Judi

Yeah, Mab. Fly the naked skies.
10:32 am
tndaisy1960

omg...I told the O/H...I'm glad our daughter is back in TN....if she had to give up all her "potions and lotions" in her bags...she'd be heartbroken she's all girl...
10:32 am
hurshy

i doubt britain is devastated - they caught them and foiled the plot
10:33 am
mab

I think it would speed up the entire boarding process
10:33 am
Haz1558

The only carry on luggage allowed is money, passports, essential medication, all to be carried in a plastic bag.
10:33 am
harpjane

great idea mab, and I bet that would cause an interest in airline travel, too!
10:33 am
stidmama

I wondered how they would handle infants' needs -- are they going to confiscate the diaper bags also? what about people with oxygen tanks? this could be very interesting.
10:33 am
Kateq

my friends just called from the airposrt here--they had already left behind the computer, the bottles of perfume, shampoo, etc. had to return more stuff to the car but , all things considered got thru security relatively easily
10:33 am
hurshy

you mean like for today, or permanent new rule, haz?
10:33 am
Anniebrook

no liquids, gels of any kind including any kind of electronic equipment, nude is an excellent idea, would move the lines quicker
10:33 am
EasternBlue

*ponders mab's suggestion* never flyin' again if THAT goes thru!!
10:33 am
Cathyar

last two to5/14's? build from teh child's plaything?

Imagine being a baby-carrying mom with intent to blow oneself up--self yes, but baby?

Britain is on high alert as i think America is again
10:34 am

i mean can't you bring a book? sudoku? crossword puzzles?
10:34 am
ladynoire1013

I think nude might slow it down a bit lol
10:34 am
Haz1558

It's certainly being applied today, I don't know how long they are going to keep it up for.
10:34 am
tndaisy1960

yes we are on high alert
10:34 am
mab

perhaps hospital gowns for the modest
10:34 am
Anniebrook

hey, EasternBlue, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!
10:34 am
Kateq

yes--we are back at "red" in Washington--
10:34 am

Hmmm. Naked flying. They'd have to make the seats and the aisles a whole lot wider. Personal space would take on a new meaning.
10:34 am
EasternBlue

thanks Annie!
10:34 am
Haz1558

No books. That's taking things too far in my opinion!
10:34 am

No hurshy ..no books
10:34 am

i flew to florida last week and i had my bag searched b/c they thought i had a knife ( i didn't) but i was comforted by the thoroughness of the security. they don't mess around
10:34 am

10:34 am
harpjane

The states are on the highest alert --the only time it's been used since the "color" alert has gone into use.
10:34 am
hurshy

well that's intolerable, you can't have a several-hour flight with no book!
10:34 am
stidmama

I have decided to not fly anyway. I think there are too many ways to do damage they haven't thought of yet... but then perhaps as the daughter of a pilot I know too much.
10:34 am

FIREWORKS!!!! *passes around more blue for all*

10:36 am
Haz1558

I imagine they are making up rules as they go along. It'll all calm down eventually.
10:36 am

t'is safer to fly than travel by any other means, including walking

you can bring books on board, how can you travel without books!

Current restrictions: UK to US allows NOTHING as carry-on. Essential medications are allowed (including milk for baby), but you'd better be prepared to prove it's medicine.
10:37 am

to5/12 - add a male.

wow. wow.
10:37 am

that sounds like a lovely arrangement, Cathy!
10:38 am
riemann

Current restricition: US domestic. NO FLUIDS. Medical exceptions only. So when I'm flying next week, I'll get shaving cream, toothpaste, etc from the concierge at my hotel.
10:38 am
hetty

to5/12 do you intend to *** (not"woman" )a piece of equipment?
10:38 am
hetty

to5/12 do you intend to *** (not"woman" )a piece of equipment?
10:38 am
hurshy

toothpaste is a fluid?
10:38 am
stidmama

good morning, riemann, what are you doing here so early? classes cancelled in honor of EasternBlue's birthday?
10:38 am
mab

i don't understand no books. i literally go no where without a book, just in case. what would one do?
10:38 am
abe79

yes, and lotion too
10:39 am
hurshy

and how could a book be dangerous?
10:39 am
riemann

Anything that does not break is a fluid.
10:39 am
Cathyar

tis...now that downstairs is cleaned up i'm using part of the rest of my vacation to do some late spring cleaning up here! (look busy don't I as I sit here babbling and passing out fake blue) ;)
10:39 am
mab

sit quietly with one's hands folded in one's lap
10:39 am
stidmama

That's it for me -- NO FLYING.
10:39 am
EasternBlue

hursh -- fluids, gels...anything in somewhat aqueous format...
10:39 am
hurshy

they will loosen up after the scare is over, they'll have to allow books
10:39 am
sherb

maybe people could... talk to each other...?
10:39 am
tndaisy1960

I'm not even telling Megan about all this racket...would scare that child to death...
10:39 am
Cathyar

no flying for me either...not till i get a REAL Blue in my hands for my vacation....
10:39 am
stidmama

hurshy -- books are inherently dangerous -- they carry ideas, don't you know!
10:40 am
harpjane

I think you can check your "fluids", just no carry on.
10:40 am
hetty

Stid, don't alarm me-here we are planning a round the world air trip in November
10:40 am
EasternBlue

sherb - depends on if you like the looks of that naked person sitting next to you!! 8 )
10:40 am
hurshy

but harp, if we're talking liquid explosive, and you're a suicide bomber, wouldn't it be just as dangerous checked as in carryon?
10:40 am
lbdawger

what if you have to...you know...use the loo? isn't that a liquid?
10:40 am
mab

i suppose one cannot have writing materials either
10:40 am

The heightened airline restriction always cause problems for those of us who never go anywhere without an electronic tuner and a set of harp strings....
10:40 am
Cathyar

well...better run for now and get some work done...be bk later to help clue! *leaves behind the rest of the blue for EB for her b'day*
10:40 am
stidmama

hetty - glad I saw that before I posted my last comment!
10:40 am
riemann

Apparently, the US domestic ban is only on fluids. I can still take a book, camera, etc. And yes, fluids are allowed in checked luggage.
10:40 am
stidmama

later Cathy!
10:41 am
Munner

a clue please for the ha combo?
10:41 am
ladynoire1013

if you have explosive urine, flying should be the last thing on your mind LOL

well that's weird!

that's it. I'm never coming out of the water. never.
10:41 am

(oh...b4 i go...stidmama...will you be continuing the story today?)
10:41 am
chj

you have to check your urine and your blood at the boarding gate
10:41 am
harpjane

The plan was to bring the components of an explosive and mix them in flight
10:41 am

it's not a combo, munner

When you think about it... when you fly, you are surrounded by jet fuel. Very few fluids are more volatile than that. So, damned if you do, damned if you don't?
10:41 am
sherb

they put the baggage that goes in the hold through a scanner... but the airports aren't equipped with scanners for hand luggage...
10:42 am
EasternBlue

hetty - you should be fine...it is safer flying than driving - and most of us do that everyday....
10:42 am
stidmama

I'm still not flying, riemann -- not unless my kids require it (and they are here with me, so I am safe)
10:42 am
harpjane

I think the UK is stricter at the time, no carryon luggage. period.
10:42 am
harpjane

except what do all those carnivores do with their carion? (**ducks***)
10:42 am
Munner

thanks, hurshy, should have seen those ha. Maybe it has something to do with waking up at 4 am this morning.
10:42 am

EB, i don't think we're worried about the safety so much as the boredom
10:42 am
hurshy

lol harp!
10:43 am

yes, hetty -- by the time you travel, all this will be sorted out and they'll be letting pleasant looking grandma types on with pics of their grandkids again. :-)

Hetty - Spinergy - Where random words and scenarios collide to create big laughs! Using three random words,

Tellers




try to outwit your fellow players while creating everything from hilarious pickup lines to surprising movie plots. A game where you never know what might happen next. With over 1.5 billion combinations, it's different every time you play!
10:51 am
sherb

hetty - you have three random words and you have to use them in different scenorios... a pick up line, a movie plot etc...

Jac - it just came this morning (amazon is great!)... debating whether to keep it or give it to my sister as a present (and then play it...)
10:52 am
hetty

O.K. I shall look it up, thanks sherb and Jac

it is good, sherb, it's just amusing how they always tell you it's going to take so long and it never does
10:55 am

now, is the od7 related to odometer or anything?

od7 is related to giving :)
10:56 am

ah, thanks sherb

10:57 am

od7 = "Any of the large predacious winged insects of the order Odonata, which includes the dragonflies and damselflies, characterized by long brightly colored bodies, two pairs of membranous wings, and large compound eyes."
10:57 am

That should help ..

dragonflies & damselflies...I like that!!
10:58 am

of course, I'm still waiting for the 8 other items I was seduced into ordering when I went to look for the Spinergy game...

OOPS!!! Guess I should proofread once in a while . . . Idiot . .
10:58 am

why, except for the wings, that sounds like a description of me. odd.
10:59 am

you're a large predacious insect?
10:59 am

You're a brightly colored damsel, mab ..
10:59 am

now where's the knightinshiningarmorfly to save the damselfly from the dragonfly?

this grid is driving me crazy!!! i'm getting the list.
11:05 am
inge

Although I got my fireworks, I just noticed that I am missing a 7-letter word. But that no word came up as a 8-letter word and 40 points
11:06 am
hetty

If you lived in or near the badlands (Alberta) you'd know the "ho" words right away
11:06 am
EasternBlue

inge - there are no 8 letter words today...
11:06 am
sherb

hurshy - I've tried this listless thing for the last few days, and I can't see the point in it... it's not really challenging, just takes a lot of time...
11:07 am
inge

but that no-word registered as an 8 letter word, even though I have counted only seven letters in it. I am just going to let it ride, since I have 149 words and 1577 points
11:07 am
hurshy

it is challenging, i think, and it takes less time as you get used to it. but i can see it wouldn't be for everyone.
11:08 am
hurshy

i often need to occupy time anyway...
11:08 am
chj

whats the point in going listless and then asking for clues.....the people giving the clues are gonna use a list to help
11:08 am
hurshy

and sometimes it's just too easy with the list
11:08 am
EasternBlue

inge - fickle babble grid 8 )
11:08 am
inge

oh, and my word stats claim taht I have found an 8-letter word!! hehe
11:09 am
hurshy

but chj, you don't get as much info with the clues. like you might find out there is an fe5, but not where it falls alphabetically
11:09 am
abe79

you have the magic touch, inge!
11:09 am
sherb

I like Babbler's game of trying to find as many words as possible in 30 minutes without looking at the stats or chat log...
11:09 am
hurshy

when you know where things fall alphabetically, it's practically a gimme.
11:09 am
chj

and using a list allows you to actually figure out what the word should be instead of just monkeying the word
11:10 am
EasternBlue

I just take my own sweet time...use "blues clues" and list as needed...
11:10 am
hurshy

i have many games. i always make myself find at least 50% before looking at stats, and 80-90% before opening the chat log...
11:10 am
hurshy

today, i have housework, so i'm in more of a hurry.
11:10 am

hence, list for the last 17.
11:11 am

Have you noticed how patriarchal todays words are? I keep tangling with the male words, sing, and pl

i understand the challenge of going without a list but then you shouldnt ask for or look at clues

that's good going... I can seldom get more than 60-70% without clues...
11:11 am
EasternBlue

*wonders what this 'housework' is of which hurshy speaks* *giggles*
11:11 am
hurshy

there is still a difference between clues and the list. before the list existed, people gave each other clues for words they'd actually found. that's camaraderie
11:12 am
EasternBlue

I really want cement to be in this grid...I've typed it enough...
11:12 am
ladynoire1013

ok, so I"m obviously not going to finish this puzzle today
11:13 am
sherb

it was like being in the trenches together... people shared bits of lists... anything to finish...
11:13 am
hurshy

there is the occasional puzzle i do completely clue-and-list-free, but i don't feel like the same level of challenge each day.
11:13 am
inge

why, ladynoire, did we ignore your pleas for help?
11:13 am
featherbee

happy birthday blue!
11:13 am
chj

but your using the list indirectly by asking for clues...other people who used the list are providing the clues...if youre a purist..no list, no clues
11:13 am
EasternBlue

lady - I hope you feel better & your migraine goes away...
11:14 am

sorry, ladynoire, didnt know you were not well.
11:14 am
EasternBlue

*throws a monkey-wrench into chj's theory* UNLESS...the person offering said clue went list-less...
11:14 am
EasternBlue

thanks feather!!!
11:14 am
hurshy

i'm not a purist, chj, and once a person has a word, it really doesn't make any difference how they found it when they give you a clue. i don't really like it when people give me more info than i'm looking for sometimes, but there isn't much i can do about that without being rude
11:15 am
featherbee

i think hurshy is just setting a personal challenge, rather than trying to be a purist
11:15 am
EasternBlue

...but overall, I say...to each his/her own!!
11:15 am
hurshy

yes, it's a personal challenge, and it allows me to make the puzzle last longer, which in my boring, purposeless existence is often necessary.
11:16 am
chj

plus ita a headache for the cluers to be asked for a clue foa a letter without knowing the length of point value or which of many words with the same length and point value
11:16 am
hurshy

then they need not answer, chj. i never EXPECT anyone to give me clues, i don't think anyone should.
11:17 am
hurshy

we don't have a constitutional right to clues.
11:17 am
sherb

I'd rather be asked for a clue by hurshy than by someone who's just going through the list by rote and asking for help every time they get to a word they can't find instantly...
11:18 am
hurshy

personally, i love guessing which word someone is missing who isn't using the list - that's another game, to figure which words are the weirdest or most likely to be overlooked.
11:18 am
chj

i agree with that sherb
11:19 am

Amen, sherb and hurshy. I also hate too obvious clues: id + eye + hoop + cross ??
