12:54 am
SamanthaJoy

The Volkswagen Thing was based on the "Typ 82 Kübelwagen," Germany's equivalent to the Jeep during World War II. In 1969, a slightly modified form dubbed the "Kubelwagen Model 181" was manufactured in and sold to Americans as the Thing.
12:55 am
MVA

yes, old time variety shows?
12:55 am
SamanthaJoy

Though exceedingly rare, there are still thousands of Things out there. Before 1969, the cars were built in Germany, and then production was moved to Mexico from 1973 until 1980. Production estimates range from 70,000 to 140,000 Things built. Owners tend to be a fiercely proud breed, and naturally they have their own web ring.

vintage parent here. Put the baby in bed walk away close the door and let baby cry for ten minutes. If still crying go back in give baby a cuddle and place back in bed. keep doing this and baby will get the message. A good idea too is to give baby a special bed time only toy. When baby sees the toy it is bedtime. Make sure you always put baby to bed. Do not sit the baby on your lap to sleep. The sooner the baby knows to sleep in his/her own bed the better.

The secret is not to let the crying get to you. It is the parent who cant stand the crying. I know what you are saying, but believe me, be patient it does work for all babies. You just have to be strong.

6:06 am
pida 1

Oh, I don't know. You can be addicted, and not be pro, But now we get to find out a little more about you, and you can put an icon up.
6:07 am

6:07 am

go5 is a thief, swindler, rascal

6:46 am
Scrabbler

But you ARE gathering data Marso
6:46 am
Wolvie

I work from home - no help for me there
6:46 am
marso

6:47 am
Ragalla

i remember a button on a game website (cant remember which site) that you could click if you were being approached by the work police and it would bring up a spreadsheet to make you look all diligent
6:47 am
inge

Good morning, everybody. Whee, my whole name is in the grid. I have to work quickly, since I am giving a Tour of Detroit, mainly the Henry Ford Museum, at 11:30.

haz, that is too tempting :)
6:55 am
Jacula

Haz - you're looking remarkably like Martha Longhurst today!
6:55 am
Haz1558

Yes - I wondered how many people would recognise her!
6:56 am
Beast

sorry excuse my ignorance, but who is martha longhurst?
6:56 am
Jacula

Martha, Ena & Minnie - who could forget them and their stout in the sn4 of The Rovers?
6:57 am
Jacula

Beast - She was a character in Coronation Street.
6:57 am
Beast

ahh, ok then, i don't feel so bad
6:57 am
Becca Lorum

I didn't know her either Beast
6:57 am
Jacula

Must go now. *CLICK!*
6:57 am
Haz1558

Martha Longhurst was an early member of the cast of Coronation Street. She died in the pub. I remembered that they didn't play any music over the closing credits.....
6:57 am
Beast

coronation street was on here when i was a kid, but i never really watched it
6:57 am
Wolvie

Haz1558

No, of no importance in the grand scheme of things.
6:59 am
Becca Lorum

6:59 am
Haz1558

7:01 am
Wolvie

no no - no trolls today. ;-)
7:09 am
jimmack

The top left E begins 6 words. The E below it begins 2. Does this mean that the lower E words *must* begin with EO or ES? (ie. the words can't be started with the top left E)
7:10 am
Wolvie

they can go any direction, jimmack - as long as the tiles touch
7:11 am
Inge2

it does, Jimmack
7:11 am
jimmack

Yes, but I'm trying to find out if the reason that the lower E starts two words is because those words have to have O or S as a second letter, so the top left E couldn't start them. I'm not sure if I'm asking the question very clearly :-)
7:11 am
Haz1558

The word is counted from the first opportunity to use the first letter, so you are right to say that the second e has to begin eo or es.
7:11 am
Wolvie

that being said, the lower left hand e does contain 2 eo words
7:12 am
jimmack

Thanks Inge2 :-)
7:12 am
Inge2

(morning wolvie, and all)
7:12 am
Wolvie

okay. I stand corrected
7:12 am
jimmack

Aha! Thank you all :-)
7:12 am

7:18 am
abe79

7:18 am
abe79

good morning everyone
7:18 am
Wolvie

hi abe!
7:18 am
Haz1558

8:07 am
seano216k

hi babblers...any one fancy cluing the gu7/52(i am hoping that will inspire the other gu's i am missing)
8:07 am
Anniebrook

fi 5.18 plural of fi 4.8---seek and ye shall fi**
8:08 am
Wolvie

seano - it was clued as a fish - sort of rhymes with torture chamber
8:08 am
seano216k

fi5/18 (2nd one) is the alt spelling of the norwegian coastline
8:08 am

8:09 am
FMitch

seano - 2 clues from earlier
It sounds like the du****** where they kept prisoners in castles.
OR gu7/32 = gu + 2 consonants +3 letter word that means a very very long time. pl for the 8.

melonheadjujube

could be, kk
9:41 am
mattygroves

Just started today (hi all) - your clues don't yet make sense to me..
9:42 am
melonheadjujube

so 7 - Italian for mute & it's plural (change ending vowel) - sounds like something sharp at first.
9:44 am
melonheadjujube

kk, did you get the yo7 - it's plural of yo6, which could be italian for a Hanna Bar_Bear-a character.
9:45 am
melonheadjujube

matty, pardon my obscureness.

Oh, they built the ship Titanic, to sail the ocean blue...
10:27 am
mattygroves

"Last night I found a peanut, found a peanut last night"
10:27 am
Vicuna

(That's funny, mattygroves. We always found our peanuts "right now.")
10:28 am
renfield

and they wre rotten?
10:28 am
mattygroves

Ha, Vicuna! Did you puke the peanut up the way we did, or were we just gross?
10:28 am
Vicuna

Yeah, but we ate them anyway, right now.
10:28 am
Vicuna

Oh, we definitely puked them... unless maybe we barfed them?
10:28 am
mattygroves

Yep - except we did last night. Then we died.
10:29 am

Yeah, we died, too... but right now.

If we all went to heaven, we must not have had many si4/4.
10:30 am

"the other way"
10:30 am
mattygroves

Well, we got kicked out of heaven, and went - er, the other way.
10:30 am

WE didn't like that, either, so last night we were reincarnated.

Shortly after which we washed the PEANUTS down with 99 bottles of beer....

Oh yeah, we did that, too. You obviously love your regurgitation-themed ditties!
10:33 am
mattygroves

Yep, well. The joys of being 10. Mind you, I taught them to my (English raised) daughter with great glee.

Guess I'm just a 10 year old at heart.
10:33 am

So were these songs new to the British schoolchildren?
10:34 am

Seemed to be. My daughter especially loved:
10:34 am
mattygroves

"Miss Lucy had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell. Miss Lucy went to heaven and the steamboat went to...Hell-o operator...etc"
10:34 am
Vicuna

Ah, cultural exchange. What pearls of wisdom we can learn from others...
10:35 am
Vicuna

...Miss Lucy sat upon it, and broke her little ASSk me no more questions...
10:36 am
mattygroves

Oooh - I learned it like this "Behind the refrigerator, there is a piece of glass, if Miss Lucy sits upon it, it will go right up her ASSk me no more questions..."
10:36 am
harpjane

so far, none of your icon clues are helping....
10:36 am
GMO

We used to bang a rubber ball in a nylon up against the wall when we sang about good old Miss Lucy..
10:36 am
mattygroves

We clapped hands.
10:36 am
Vicuna

That makes more sense, I suppose. I always thought it should cut her ask, but that's not the way it went...
10:37 am
mattygroves

You know, girls' handclapping rythm tings.
10:37 am
GMO

I also remember "In the land of Mars where the ladies smoke cigars..."
10:37 am
Vicuna

Are there in Brits around who want to contribute some risque childhood songs of their own?
10:37 am
mattygroves

I'll ask my daughter (jimjams on here) to contribute when she gets home from school (she's 15 now)
10:38 am
Vicuna

I know there was a place in France where the naked ladies dance...
Come to think of it, that place undoubtedly still exists.
10:38 am
mattygroves

What did she do - "Double double this this, double double that that. Double this double that double double this that". Or something. It had a very strict clapping sequence.
10:38 am
torgone

Is this thing on? . .
10:39 am

No, torgone, we can't hear you.

Hello, stidmama. Lovely icon.
10:43 am

Any many of us regulars finish the ones that are convenient, and just get as many as we can otherwise.

I finish when I have time.
10:44 am

Thanks Vi -- word from the grid day -- you should see brown on green...

Most weekends, and weekdays when the grid isn't too big.
10:44 am
mattygroves

I'm not at work today (bad cold) so should finish today

mmm. I would use Rum myself (being a closet pirate) but... whiskey sounds like a reasonable substitute!

I only have one eight, which I think is the GU fish one - can anyone help with the others?

10:48 am
Vicuna

re8 and ro8 are the same except for one letter. (I think you can figure out which one!) They are both adj endings, one on dried pine sap, the other on the similar word
10:48 am
mattygroves

Ahh - more Brits. Right, Haz and Atlante - we were sharing school bus songs and clapping songs, and the question was asked what the British versions were - what did YOU guys sing to annoy teachers, bus drivers and other parents?
10:48 am
Haz1558

I've never annoyed anyone in my life....
10:48 am
Vicuna

I recognized it, Ata. Inappropriate word, but relatively tasteful depiction!
10:49 am

10:49 am

fi5/22 - is almost someone who can't keep still

but clapping songs - there was one about a guy in a Chinese takeaway. well what else!

10:53 am

10:54 am

For go5/14 take the first three letters of the disappeared go4/6 and end with the Nar ending. The other one starts the same but ends with a word of doubt - as in Rudyard Kipling's poem
10:56 am
mattygroves

Thanks Vic for those two 8s. 2 two go (2 eights, that is - I have 122 words left in total)
10:56 am

I don't have the other two either, mattygroves.

That's a whole review about the dogs, descriptions of my dogs, and pcitures.
11:15 am
mattygroves

The coats cord themselves - unless the dog is a working dog, you just separate out the cords to keep them from plate matting.
11:15 am
mattygroves

You can do that in front of the telly or whatever - so long as you don't pull from the root, it doesn't hurt.
11:15 am

11:15 am
mattygroves

Of course, if you rescue a dog, or neglect the coat, it because nearly impossible to separate, and the dog may need cutting down.

And they are...a challenge to wash.

The Pulis can come in black, brown or white, are much smaller, and their tails curl much more than the Kom.

Take away the plural ending for si7/36. The other si8/60 is formed by adding the sometimes vowel in place of the plural letter.

Flask - if you have the yo4/8 - take the first three letters and add the opposite of off. That gets you the yo5. Now add a vowel for yo6/30. It can be pluralised for yo7/44. And finally the yo5 can be pluralised to give you yo6/30.

Haz1558

Okay - gu7/52 and its plural gu8/70. The name of a fish (literally). The plural ends in a long period of time (a word within the grid) and sounds like something you hit people with (bl******) or a cantankerous person (curm******)
2:41 pm
ladynoire1013

Abe was that gy clue for the 6?
2:42 pm
