Haz1558 are you local to Ballymena ?
3:18 am
Haz1558

Yes - I've lived here for 24 years so an still considered a newcomer! I'm originally from Carrickfergus.
3:19 am
spangles

My grandfather was born in Clogh and my great granny lived in Ballymena for all of her 106 years.
3:20 am
Haz1558

Goodness - she had a good long life! Have you ever been across to the ancestral home?
3:20 am
P.J.

106 yrs. how wonderful!!!!
3:20 am
jean1953

good grief 106 thats amazing
3:22 am
spangles

I would love to come but unfortunately I've never made it. I would like one day to visit. You know it is really amazing that she lived such a long life. She died the year before I was born . She died in 1948.
3:23 am
Haz1558

That makes it even more amazing, as people didn't live so long in those days. I hope you do get the chance to visit, although the town has changed greatly even from the time that I have been here.
3:24 am
Haz1558

Do you happen to know where she is buried?
3:25 am
spangles

I've got maps and pictures of the area and it seems to be very beautiful.
3:25 am

Bye everyone - 50 left to find tomorrow. Spangles - and another co-incidence - Haz's beautiful dog's name is Spangle!

It is lovely, spangles - we tend to take our scenery too much for granted and it is only when visitors come that we see it through fresh eyes.
3:26 am
spangles

I think she was buried either at Cushendun or Cushendall I will have to look it up.
3:27 am
P.J.

nitelyn
3:28 am
Haz1558

They are both seaside villages, not that far from each other.
3:29 am
spangles

I am researching my family tree and the Irish records are proving to be very difficult. I do know that she lived at 25 William street where she had a boarding house.
3:31 am
Haz1558

William Street is still there, although some of the houses were knocked down to make way for a shopping centre. It is currently the street with the highest number of pubs in the town! I'll see whether 25 William Street is still standing. Irish records are difficult because of the Custom House fire in the 1920's when lots of records were destroyed.

3:47 am
Haz1558

I know! They're very popular over here with farmers who like to load their plates!
3:47 am
hydra

or a ca7 word ending in y? I'm disgusted that it isn#t allowed. I went to one in a hotel just last week!

Hi sherb too
3:55 am
FMitch

The mind boggles as to how many re's are going to be here today.
3:55 am
Haz1558

I'm a bit startled to find the dream (re6/33) spelt not as in the dictionary.
3:57 am
Haz1558

Maybe dream isn't the best definition - kind of pleasant mind wandering.
3:57 am
metaleather

it must be a UK/US thing... the spelling diff. that is
3:57 am
sherb

what Proust did...
3:57 am
Haz1558

For pages and pages and pages.....
3:58 am
sherb

amazing the effect a madeleine can have...
3:58 am
Haz1558

So is that the normal US spelling, metal?
3:58 am
Frances

Usually has ie on the end?
3:58 am
FMitch

hmmm not seeing that one
3:59 am
sherb

re + exceedingly
3:59 am
Haz1558

re plus a word meaning greatly/a lot. And yes, we normally spell it with an ie on the end.
3:59 am
FMitch

Ah got it
3:59 am
metaleather

it seems "normal" to me, but maybe it's like the pronunciation of caribbean.... one way stresses the rib and one the be
3:59 am
metaleather

but either is acceptable
4:00 am
metaleather

perhaps it's the same with the re spellings
4:01 am
FMitch

Haz your icon clue from yesterday is here again
4:02 am
Haz1558

I know - quantities of them!
4:02 am
Haz1558

No woman is safe with them around.

Oh come on - if PeterS came up to you would you swoon into his arms? eeeww
4:03 am
Haz1558

Yo've found me out. I've always had a secret passion for him.
4:03 am
Frances

NO!!!!
4:04 am
sherb

Stringfellow is not so much a ro4, more a ruin....
4:04 am
Haz1558

Maybe I could be the one to change him - he just needs looking after. And a hair cut.
4:04 am
Frances

LOL sherb

LOL sherb
4:05 am
metaleather

who?
4:05 am

<----- lost
4:06 am
Haz1558

Google images for Peter Stringfellow. He is a night club owner (the night club is imaginatively named Stringfellows) and he is a bit of a cad.
4:06 am
Frances

......and I hope he's got rid of the thong by now Haz.
4:07 am
FMitch

A bit of a cad! I am getting worried about you Haz :)
4:07 am
metaleather

am googling now, but google is dragging it's feet
4:07 am
Haz1558

I used him yesterday as my icon to illustrate ro4/5. He could also have been a 'rake'.
4:08 am
Haz1558

I'm feeling generous, FMitch.
4:08 am
metaleather

he must be a "silver-tongued devil" and a charmer... his looks wouldn't get him far
4:08 am
Haz1558

Oh look, that god of love is here again. How appropriate.
4:09 am
Haz1558

metal - the whole country is at a loss to understand Peter Stringfellow and the women who throw themselves at him.
4:09 am
sherb

it must be his charm... or his money... cos it's certainly not his looks...
4:09 am
Frances

I guess money speaks volumes Haz
4:09 am
metaleather

maybe he has ummmmm "talents" or "skills" we won't mention in public
4:10 am
FMitch

Maybe he is a good ca8/45
4:10 am
metaleather

and tons of money is usually pheromone laden, isn't it?
4:10 am
Haz1558

It's not even as though he has 'power' like John Prescott.
4:11 am

Don't go there Haz!!!!

4:38 am
Haz1558

The singular form (not accepted by enable) seems to mean a series of celtic languages, but I can't find a meaning for the plural form er5/10. I'll still have to think of it as poetry gone wrong.
4:39 am
Frances

Bit of a puzzler Haz

Haz1558

Add a different consonant to the end. I think it means to have a boozy time.
6:08 am
Eggcorn

ca - change the last consonant ... means to bounce off
6:08 am
Haz1558

No - it's to do with vehicles leaning over.

hi caitlyn

I know the icon theme today is for faerie ..any news on her mum?
6:11 am
Haz1558

I haven't heard anything since yesterday - she was deteriorating.
6:12 am
caitlyn

Thanks Haz
6:12 am
Wolvie

oh - I didn't know the theme - brb
6:13 am
metaleather

I was wondering about faerie's mother... I knew she was sick, but didn't know in what manner
6:14 am
caitlyn

She was saying the other night that it is just a matter of time..poor faerie
6:15 am
Haz1558

She is very elderly and had been suffering from dementia/Alzheimer's. She has been in hospital, in a fair degree of pain, but I'm not sure from what condition. It's heartbreaking for them to have to watch her.
6:16 am
Wolvie

I'm so sorry for faerie - it's sad
6:17 am
metaleather

as hard as it was to lose Mama so quickly, I"m glad she didn't linger as some do
6:17 am
metaleather

I don't think I'd have had the strength to do what faerie is doing
6:19 am
caitlyn

I nursed my dad through brain cancer he was so brave and aware of what was happening until the last day,,he was so dignified about it that it helped us get through
6:19 am
Andree

my dad was the same cait, when my time comes I want to be as brave as he was
6:19 am
Wolvie

very similar here, cait - although it started as lung cancer for my Dad that spread to his liver and brain
6:20 am
Wolvie

I hope I can have as much dignity and grace as my Dad did as well, andree
6:20 am
metaleather

Daddy had cancer also, colon cancer, but he died of heart and lung failure before the cancer could advance to any extreme degree
6:21 am
caitlyn

Its so sad that so many of us have been through the same ..thats another bond we all have
6:22 am
metaleather

true cait.

so many, more every day it seems, are diagnosed with cancer... almost everyone I know has either had it or has lost someone to it
6:22 am
Andree

my dad started with prostate cancer, more deaths from prostate cancer than breast cancer, yet it is largely ignored
6:23 am
metaleather

almost no publicity for it, no fund raising, correct?
6:23 am
metaleather

almost no publicity for it, no fund raising, correct?
6:23 am
caitlyn

I dont think that enough is done to highlite prostate cancer Andree
6:24 am
Andree

get all your men to get regular checkups, it only takes a few minutes
6:24 am
Wolvie

I see commercials for men's heath a lot on the tube here, they are talking about prostate cancers and other illnesses. A good thing, I think
6:24 am
metaleather

a lot of it has to do with men's attitudes about getting tested, almost as if it's not manly to take precautions
6:25 am
Andree

such a difference if cancer is detected early, whatever kind
6:26 am
Wolvie

amen to that, andree
6:29 am
Andree

my only real fear about death is having one of my children go before I do
6:29 am
caitlyn

Oh Andree I fear the same thing
6:30 am
Wolvie

that would be the worst
6:31 am
metaleather

not having children, I don't share that fear, but I do fear watching another loved one, especially my dear sweetheart/spousal equivalent/life mate/boyfriend/other suitable euphemism

do you think cats know when they look goofy?
7:52 am
Dorens

I didn't realize you were in Boston, Pam. Both my sons and sister live in Cambridge, and I go up there once a month
7:53 am
pam

So you know the area well, Dorens! Yep, i am here in Boston...
7:55 am
Dorens

well, that's good. at least you are in a place where there is lots of stuff happening, places to go, things to do. When you are ready, you have lots of opportunities to distract yourself
7:56 am

LOLOL--the key is when I am ready, i think. Today, my ex is moving out (I am at friends') and I am not really distractable...

Pam, we need a break from the grid, honestly, and we are all here for each other. that's part of what makes this place so awesome....brain challenge, and frienship all in one!

THANKS, Dorens!
8:01 am
evanonut

last time checked, good deal of us share our lives and problems in here...it's a good place to do it...and no one judges in here.
8:01 am
Dorens

sometimes jokes and silliniess (NUT), sometimes baseball play-by-play, sometimes therapy. it's our place to do what we want, and anyone who doesn't like it can ignore it and babble away.
8:01 am

Soo True

true enough....

Well maybe you can all give me some advice then
8:04 am
Dorens

shoot! (and we'll let Pam give the advice)
8:04 am
evanonut

i'm good at bad advice
8:04 am
pam

I don't know that I am worthy, Dorens...
8:05 am
Dorens

comoe on now, Pam sure you can do this. But maybe we should here what Tiny needs advice on????
8:05 am
chiley

I need help with ne6/18...
8:05 am
Tiny

My doctor has told me to go away on my own for a few days to have a break from problems at home but my husband says I am not allowed to go by myself if I take someone with me I will not be alone so doesnt that defeat the purpose and how do I handle it
8:05 am
Fishbulb

ne/6 18 is more of the ne4/4
8:06 am
evanonut

tell him you're taking someone with you, get them to pretend to disappear...voila!
8:06 am

Oh dear...please pass the coffee
8:06 am

closer would perhaps be a better description chiley :)
8:06 am
pam

"not allowed?" as in forbidden???
8:07 am

i assume this is concern on his part for your well being...other wise i have a new set of advice
8:07 am
evanonut

i assume this is concern on his part for your well being...other wise i have a new set of advice
8:07 am
Tiny

but he knows all my friends can not go with me I feel like I am a Prisoner
8:07 am
Tiny

Yes Pam
8:07 am
Dorens

i think Pam is on the right track here. why are you forbidden?
8:07 am
evanonut

okay...new set of advice, kick him in the nuts and get in the car.
8:07 am
Dorens

ROFL, nut
8:08 am
Sudokuaddict

i say go anyway and don't tell him where
8:08 am
Tiny

I am not sure eva but he keeps saying it is not right for me to go by myself
8:08 am
pam

Is he Jealous?
8:08 am
evanonut

one last question, does he go away by himself?
8:09 am
Dorens

we all think it is right, your DOCTOR thinks that it is right, where is he getting his rules from?
8:09 am
cliffopa

when i need a break from my hubby, i ask him to go away. i like staying home alone with my menagerie.
8:09 am
Tiny

Hes got no reason we have been happily married for 27 years
8:09 am
evanonut

last i checked australia was a free country
8:09 am
Tiny

no eva but he goes out on his bike anytime he like and I have to stay here
8:10 am
Sudokuaddict

i mean call later to let him know you are okay but get away for the time you need a little alone never hurt anyone
8:10 am
evanonut

you go away tiny, pay with cash, have a nice break
8:11 am
Sudokuaddict

yes take care of yourself after 27 years he will get over it
8:11 am
Dorens

you are definitely getting clear unanimous advice here. Tiny.
8:11 am
chiley

Without knowing a lot about your specific situation, I would think that perhaps he feels it isn't safe for you to be alone. If your problems are great enough that you need to get away, perhaps he fears what you will do when you're alone
8:11 am
evanonut

go somewhere where they give massages!
8:11 am
Tiny

I just feel like taking of but know how he will react when I get home He even went to ask one of our Pastors if he thinks it is right
8:11 am
evanonut

AND get a manicure
8:12 am
Dorens

and pedicure
8:12 am
pam

are you safe at home, Tiny?
8:12 am
jimmack

Go and see the Pastor yourself and find out what he suggests.
8:12 am
pam

And, I like the idea of a day away--tell him you are pampering yourself--hair, nails, the works....
8:12 am
Sudokuaddict

who cares what the pastor thinks is he your doctor usually doctors don't say things like that unless they feel that is what is needed you aren't going to hurt yourself right?
8:13 am
Tiny

I have a violent son who used to hit me all the time and a daughter who has ADHD and sometimes I get afraid when my son starts to get angry
8:13 am
Dorens

how old is your son?
8:13 am
pam

Oh, Tiny, i am sorry.... you need a day away... let your husband stay at home...
8:13 am
Tiny

I have also had a heart attack and my doctor seems to think it is the stress at home
8:14 am
evanonut

what if you compromise to you and a girlfriend taking an all nighter to a day spa, most of the time will be quiet and alone then anyway
8:14 am
Tiny

my son is now 22 and has been back home for 5 weeks
8:14 am
Dorens

I dodn't mean to sound cruel, but if he is that old and violent, do you really need him in your home?
8:15 am
Sudokuaddict

go tiny pamper, take care, be free from stress why does your husband let your son hit you
8:15 am
Tiny

I have tried all ways to get him to let me go but he says it depends on what the pastor says is right
8:16 am
evanonut

tiny, the pastor is human, and is hearing his side of the story, and you are a free woman.
8:16 am
evanonut

you've given 22 years to your son, give yourself a day
8:16 am
Sudokuaddict

and they ran, ran so far away at least for a day or two to keep you sanity
8:17 am
Tiny

I have tried to give the Pastor my side but he says he has to pray about it
8:17 am
cliffopa

maybe the pastor knows of some religious retreat you could go to. you might not be completely alone - but it might also be a good compromise.
8:17 am
Charm

my two cents: he knows the pastor is going to side with him. so if the pastor says not to go, someone else takes the blame for what he wants.
8:17 am
Dorens

Tiny if you don't take care of yourself, you have nothing to give to those you love
8:17 am
jimmack

I agree with Charm.
8:17 am
Dorens

right on, Charm. Tiny tell him you listen to your doctor, it's your health here
8:18 am
Sudokuaddict

tell him you are going to buy a bike maybe he will understand that then do what you want
8:18 am
evanonut

tiny...you DESERVE a break
8:18 am
Anniebrook

tiny, I just got on and decided to read the log and saw your situation...i am sorry about your son, it sounds like he was living elsewhere and now he is home...will he be returning to where he lived or is he home permanently ..then the situation is the same when you return...
8:18 am
hurshy

tiny... if your husband controls what you do, where you go and don't go, that is a form of spousal abuse.
8:19 am
evanonut

spot on hurshy
8:19 am
Tiny

I know but I am stuck in the middle the doctor keeps asking when I am going away
8:19 am
pam

yes, hurshy, spot on
8:19 am
pam

can the doctor talk to your husband, or would you feel violated by that?
8:19 am
jimmack

Can the doctor speak to your husband?
8:20 am
Dorens

I believe that medical advice trumps pastoral advice!!
8:20 am
evanonut

i don't know about you guys, but when i told my hubby i wanted to take a trip alone, he fully endorsed it.
8:20 am
hurshy

tiny - i have been in the church all my life, so i know, religion is often used as an excuse for inappropriate behavior on the part of a husband, and is often backed up by pastors. this is not right.
8:20 am
pam

Where would you go? Let your pastor know your destination,...
8:20 am
Charm

can the doctor speak with the pastor? and impress on him how important the rest is?
8:20 am
Tiny

the doctor says she is going to speak to him
8:20 am
sherb

Tiny - what's stopping you going away? ...how will your husband react when you get back?
8:21 am
Sudokuaddict

i say go and ask forgiveness later he isn't going to leave after 27 years after something that small maybe he needs to talk to your doctor instead of the pastor
8:21 am
Charm

forgiveness for what? Tiny isn't contemplating breaking one of thecommandments, is she?
8:22 am
Sudokuaddict

it sounds to me like your health is serious enough you could say a day away or six feet under what is your choice because mine is not to be killed by stress
8:22 am
evanonut

tiny, do you feel you deserve a break?
8:22 am
Anniebrook

Tiny, the doctor trumps the pastor...have the doctor speak to your husband...what I dont understand is how going away (and I think you need the break) is going to solve the situation
8:22 am
Tiny

be very angry and probably yell and scream a bit I am praying he will have to go to the doctors so she can tell him she has requested it
8:22 am
emusing

hi, everyone, i have been reading the log
8:23 am
hurshy

and, tiny - if your husband is treating you this badly, it is not good for HIM any more than it is for you. i believe that in cases of abuse, separation is usually necessary. have you considered that?
8:23 am
Tiny

I just feel I need some time out of it all to get some new perspective
8:23 am
emusing

tiny, it sounds like your pastor hs a way lot of conrol over your family!
8:23 am
evanonut

awaits emusings imput
8:23 am
Sudokuaddict

no i meant better to go if the husband is upset ask for forgiveness then not that i think she needs to be forgiven but sometimes husbands can make life he??
8:24 am
emusing

nut, i have no magic response, except that some pastors overstep (in my opinonO their boundaries and enter way too much in family functioning
8:25 am
Tiny

I know what you are saying hurshy and that is what the doctor said but I takemy wedding vows as sacred and she said it says in the good times and the bad not the bad and the bad
8:25 am
Anniebrook

Tiny, you are not chattel...if you need a break, you need a break, anger and screaming is not an option on his part, have the doctor make it very clear you must get away
8:25 am
sherb

Tiny - you need to get away... you may have been married for 27 years, but this doesn't sound like a happy situation anymore... your husband should care about your health enough to see that you need a break...
8:26 am
Sudokuaddict

your husband doesn't know how much better it will be if you get a break take one and try to relax a new perspective is always good when trying to solve problems
8:26 am
evanonut

she's right tiny...but that honor and obey part ought to fly right out the window in my opion. honor, yes...obey HELL no
8:26 am
Tiny

yes she told me when he goes to see her she will set him straight
8:26 am
emusing

tiny, is there a women's shelter/center that you can go to get information/advice?
8:27 am
Tiny

I dont really think I want to go to a womans shelter
8:27 am
emusing

not to stay but to get information
8:27 am
hurshy

tiny - here is my perspective, as a Christian. you vowed to love your husband through good times and bad. what does that mean exactly? well, to love someone means to do what is in their best interests. it is NOT in his best interests to be allowed to be arrogant, controlling, and verbally abusive. this is sinful and hurting his relationship with God - and nothing is more important than that. so, if you continue to live with him, you might actually be facilitating that. i think that your vows are sacred, and that the way to honor them, in abuse cases, is separation (not divorce).
8:28 am
Anniebrook

In my religion the health of the mother is uppermost....you dont need permission from the pastor to get away for a few days...again, have the doctor speak to your husband and have her stress that you need SUPPORT..
8:28 am
evanonut

Tiny, do you really think God wants you to be afraid of your husband or wants him to yell and tirade at you.
8:28 am
cliffopa

amen hurshy
8:28 am
Tiny

as for the pastor he is really nice and he does know what I have been going through but I think he might say yes to go but not on my own
8:28 am
sherb

well said hurshy
8:29 am
Sudokuaddict

do you have a cell phone no one is alone if they have a cell phone
8:29 am
evanonut

one more thing on the not alone thing, sometimes having a girlfriend there to talk to is worth a million bucks
8:30 am
faeriekae

Tiny - God does take care of us we just have to listen to his voice and you need to get away. go to someone you love a family member a fellow church member...a friend but please for your own health and well being you need to get out
8:30 am
Tiny

I agree but all my friends are tied up with family and work themselves
8:30 am
evanonut

perfect tiny, then you'll be ALONE during the day
8:30 am
Anniebrook

I dont understand, what does the pastor have to do with your going away....
8:31 am
hurshy

i'm sure someone will be willing to help you! i would be!
8:31 am
Sudokuaddict

yeah nutty! especially if they know when to be quiet I think the spa thing sounds great some pampering some peace a new woman will return
8:31 am
sherb

Tiny - what is the main thing stopping you going away?
8:31 am
evanonut

with great hair and nails
8:32 am
Tiny

I know but you are over there and I am over here it is a long way apart but I thank you all for listening sometimes I feel so alone
8:32 am
faeriekae

exactly Nutty
8:32 am
pam

bbl.....
8:32 am
evanonut

okay tiny, are you near any other aussie babblers?
8:32 am
faeriekae

I just went and had my nails done a couple days ago and it made me feel better :)
8:32 am
faeriekae

Later Pam
8:32 am
hurshy

what i'm saying, though, tiny, is that if we would be willing to help, probably people near you would too. i think almost anyone would be willing to help someone in your situation. if i had a friend in your situation i would take them into my home in a heartbeat.
8:32 am
Tiny

It sounds great and I just dont want to go against his wishes but feel I need this
8:34 am
Tiny

I dont know any of the aussie babblers
8:34 am
evanonut

he's human tiny, his wishes are incorrect
8:34 am
Sudokuaddict

you have to take care of yourself no one will take care of you but you i learned that in therapy
8:34 am
Anniebrook

A spa sounds wonderful...you can be alone in a calming place...and you can call your husband and he can call you...and get a manicure and pedicure and marvelous massages and if I were you I would go...what is he going to do, divorce you because you needed a break...dont think so! If I were there I would go with you
8:34 am
emusing

sudoku, you had a good therapist!
8:34 am
hurshy

have you actually asked any of your friends if they would be willing to help you, tiny? or are you just assuming they are too busy? i bet if you ask you will be pleasantly surprised.
8:34 am
Sudokuaddict

also you can't take care of others if you don't take care of yourself
8:34 am
faeriekae

Thats exactly correct Sudakuaddict
8:35 am
Charm

if he really cared for you and had you health and best interests at heart, he will let you take a break. this kind of control is not love or caring by any stretch. and I would say contravenes your vows.

ch1212

Bittong, I struggled for years to accept the medical definition. I thought if I had enough counseling, exercise, ate right, prayed hard enough, read the right book, found the right counselor, and so on that it would end. After being part of a six month Lily drug study on severe depression, I finally accepted that for me, it takes medication in addition to the counseling, exercise, diet, etc.
9:32 am

Biltong, it was excellant. I sat there watching it, going 'yes, that's me. That's me. Yes, that's me, too'.
9:34 am
Biltong

Yes, I have counselling too. I have come to the conclusion that depression is a life long illness, but like sugar diabetes and other illnesses, with the correct treatment, etc. it can be controlled and you CAN live a normal life.
9:34 am
ch1212

yes, harpjane -- lifelong, since I was a young child. I was explaining that I fought against the medication for years before finally accepting that for me, it's part of what I need to do to cope.
9:34 am
harpjane

the worst part is well meaning friends and pastors who think you just need an attitude adjustment. nobody tells a diabetic to "just praise god more and your pancreas will start making insulin" but they expect us to get serontonin by looking at the sunny side....

One thing that turned the tide for me was a friend who is a counselor, who said, "I don't know anyone who works harder to recover and be self aware and do the work it takes... and if there is anyone I've met who fits the clinical description, it's you." That shook me up enough to rethink some of my assumptions about the disease.

in the middle of my rant did I miss a clue for mo6? I have the teeny bite and the thing that grows on the north side of trees. What's the first one!
9:37 am
harpjane

exercise is the key for me. and a better diet would help but i'm too much of a wimp for that...
9:37 am
hurshy

it is odd how for some people, like me and my dad, it's just sort of a lifelong tendency to be sadder than other people. whereas my mom was fine until about 6 years ago, and was then thrown into a major depression. it's got worse and worse, she didn't want meds for a long time... now she's on meds, but her psychiatrist is willing to prescribe them without making her get therapy...

It's true there is a definite difference between 'situational' depression and clinical. This year has been a struggle with both, since I lost my dad in January, left a job, moved 2500 miles.... so some of this is perfectly "normal" at the moment.

It's difficult, since there is still so much of a stigma about it. It really does help to know that there are others out there who know what you are going through.

sorry all, I stepped away. Scrabbler, I am a vocalist. Used to sing high soprano range, but now can barely manage the C two above middle C.
