2:38 am
Ganja

oh good job saphyre
2:38 am

I really wish we had such a language rule for immigrants in Holland. That barrier is certainly responsible for a lot of racism issues here, such a terrible shame.
2:38 am
Andree

sprite we have whole communities where the parents don't speak english even after years, so the language requirement is new
2:39 am
sprite

wtg saphhyre!
2:39 am
Krys10

likewise, we do here too, but I think there would be a lot of accusations of racism if a language requirement were strictly enforced
2:39 am

4:48 am
Jacula

4:48 am
Biltong

good going, Jacula!
4:48 am
herinfernallady

4:48 am
metaleather

you're doing quite well I think Jacula to have gotten that number that quickly
4:49 am
metaleather

and lady's right... it's suckering you in
4:49 am
Biltong

too much, too soon... :)
4:49 am
herinfernallady

oh damn!
4:51 am
Jacula

Good morning, Eva & Merp. Thank you for the word!:)))
4:51 am
Biltong

Yes, herin, but it would be very expensive and he would have to stay in quarrantine for six months.
4:51 am
Eva

at least usually the words i enter here are complete piffle
4:51 am
Jacula

(I always miss those American spellings on the first grid sweep!)
4:51 am
Eva

Hi Jac-like your lurking cat
4:51 am
Biltong

hi eva
4:52 am
Jacula

Eva - my cat's hiding from Biltong's dog.:)
4:52 am
Eva

and I always miss the British ones
4:52 am
herinfernallady

oh \thats not good. My other halfs parents spent about $10,000 to bring their dog back to australia, she does have an international doggy pasport though
4:53 am
Biltong

where do they come from herin?
4:54 am
herinfernallady

they flew to australia to england then went around europe then back to aus when they wanted to come home, darn dog cost them more than their airfare combinded to return
4:55 am
Biltong

As much as I love my boy, I cannot justify spending that kind of money. Besides, it is not fair to keep them isolated for 6 months anyway. He is better off where he is with my daughter.
4:56 am
metaleather

how do they work things out when they have international dog shows, or other animal exhibitions... I have always wondered about things like that
4:56 am
herinfernallady

oh thats true at least you can visit him, they were looking at living in england then after a year wanted to come home
4:57 am
Biltong

That's a good question metal. Never thought about that.
4:57 am
Andree

1st pe6/21 please
4:58 am
metaleather

it's a type of bird Andree... like the second 6/21, but with the last vowel of the word changed
4:58 am
metaleather

(like the second 6/21 in sound that is)
4:58 am
herinfernallady

um in europe you can get a doggy passport, as for bringing a beast to aus then lots of quarentine, my g/f has a rescue dog as the owners were going to the usa and they were not allowed to export the dog due to its breeding conditions
4:58 am
herinfernallady

sorry andree i didn't have that
4:59 am
metaleather

the dog's breeding conditions?
4:59 am
Andree

Jacula

Thanks, metal. I hadn't got either pe6 but I have both now.:)
5:00 am
herinfernallady

yep its a french mastiff and male and he had a big 'do not export' on his papers, something to due with his blood line. anyway he got a better onwer.
5:01 am
Biltong

Obviously to avoid cross breeding
5:01 am
metaleather

interesting restriction. it's good he now has a good home.
5:01 am
Jacula

I know the Enable dictionary doesn't allow 'afro' but I still try it every time.:/

5:02 am
Biltong

5:03 am
Jacula

LOL, Biltong & Eva. It's not just me then!
5:04 am
Biltong

It's like when you feel peckish and you open the fridge every few minutes, just in case something has appeared or "grown" since you last looked
5:04 am
Mrs Often

Hi all! Just to let you know I just sent Dr God 'the' suggestion that's been lingering for a few days: to add a function where you get a warning asking whether you're sure, if you try to add just one word into the chat
5:04 am
Jacula

Biltong - That sounds more like my son!
5:05 am
Jacula

Hi Mrs Often. Has he replied yet?
5:05 am
Biltong

hi Mrs Often.
5:05 am
Mrs Often

lol, I doubt it, I sent it literally seconds before I started typing my message here
5:05 am
Jacula

I asked him for an edit/delete button years ago but he said it would be difficult due to the site set-up.
5:06 am
Jacula

Things may have changed, though...
5:06 am
herinfernallady

yep and they aren't they aren't a common bred. his sire and the mum was a grand champ he already outweighs his pop. Yes he is in a good home and spoilt rotten, chiro, expensive food, training in security to keep him sane. The are the dumbest dogs about

Tiny

Good Evening Everyone
5:06 am
Andree

hi mrs often
5:06 am
Mrs Often

ah right. well I know he already has a built in warning message when you try to entery an EMPTY message in the chat... so I shouldn't think it's too difficult to add the same if you enter one word...?

I knew it wouldn't but I had to try!
5:28 am
Wolvie

nice try, jac - it takes erica, so what the heck!
5:28 am
Jacula

Yes, but erica is another name for a plant (heather or ling). I think Elvira is just herself. LOL
5:29 am
Wolvie

I know, but still. ;-)
5:30 am
Jacula

I'd have another word if a baby eel was an 'eelet' rather than an 'elver'.
5:31 am
Wolvie

or if one who caught eels were an eeler. :-)
5:32 am
Jacula

Speaking of names - The famous footballer's in here (pe4/5). Never understood why it allows that.
5:32 am
Jacula

Wolvie - true.

5:41 am
Jacula

Snap, Haz. Loved those books.
5:42 am
Haz1558

I read and re-read them as a child. They were wonderful.
5:42 am
Jacula

Katy - I expect that's why he called you that. Yes, you should read them.
5:42 am
Katydid0615

i'll look in the library for them next time i go. The granddaughter might like em.
5:43 am
Jacula

'Little Women', 'Good Wives' and 'Little Men' by Louisa May Alcott enthralled me, too.

5:45 am
Jacula

Haz - me neither (re Beth).
5:45 am
majmom

ty wolvie and jacula
5:46 am

I read Milly Molly Mandy but don't really remember it too well. Other favourites included Heidi, by Johanna Spyri and of course, Anne of Green Gables and the sequels.

Matthew's death is another tear-jerker.
5:47 am
Jacula

Me, too, Haz. MMM books where written by Joyce Lankester Brisley. I still have most of my childhood classic books.
5:48 am
Haz1558

Noel Streatfield was another favourite author.
5:49 am
Jacula

I think I only ever read Caldicott Place, Haz. Noel was a female, did you know?
5:49 am
Haz1558

And someday I must re-read the William books and the Jennings books. I won't revisit Enid Blyton, though. I know where to draw the line!
5:50 am
Jacula

What, not even 'Castle of Adventure' or the Faraway Tree books, Haz?;)
5:50 am
Haz1558

Yes, I knew Noel was a she. 'Ballet Shoe' and 'The Vicarage children' spring to mind; there are probably loads of others tucked away somewhere in my brain.
5:50 am
JFB

The highlight of my visit with my sister who lived in Massachusetts at the time was a trip to the house where Louisa May Alcott wrote her books
5:50 am
Haz1558

It's funny - you come to a point where you realise that Enid just doesn't thrill you any more.
5:51 am
Jacula

JFB - I can imagine! Was it as you expected?
5:51 am
Jacula

Know what you mean, Haz.
5:52 am
JFB

It was great - I could imagine the March family living there.
5:52 am

5:54 am

It is a hot election because the Republicans currently hold the presidency and both houses of Congress, and may lose one or both houses of Congress.

Amen, Wurdy!

KTH, there will usually be three or more listed -- but our smaller parties usually get 2% of the vote or less, and we are winner-take-all, no proportional representation.

savir?
10:24 am

haven't you played the enable game yet? it's when you spell words any old way (preferably things that appear in the grid)
10:24 am

no -- haven't been around much -- a lot of company over the last 4 weeks.

10:27 am
Haz1558

Oh dear, it does, doesn't it? I'm not fond of George Bernard Shaw - doesn't so much suggest ideas as hit you over the head with them.
10:28 am
hurshy

lol - that reminds me of my dad, he always used to hit people (not hard) with a Bible and say "the truth hurts"
10:28 am
Haz1558

Wasn't it Shaw who left a considerable amount of money to encourage English to be written phonetically?
10:29 am
Haz1558

He sounds like a wise man, hurshy. Some people should be hit over the head often (not hard)
10:29 am
hurshy

like me for instance!
10:30 am
FMitch

What would Shaw made of mobile text speak?
10:30 am
hurshy

sounds like he'd like it, from haz's description
10:31 am
Haz1558

I hope he would detest it. I think he was opposed to the idiosyncracies of the English language and thought the spelling could be made simpler.
10:32 am
Haz1558

Text speak confined to mobile/cell phones is one thing but examiners are reporting children using it in exams as well!
10:32 am
hurshy

famous female characters in the grid: elvira, leia...
10:32 am

I am glad he didn't succeed then as I love the oddities and anomolies that go to make up such a rich and varied language.

11:20 am

still, it's been a hairstyle for decades - it needs a no cap version for that.
11:20 am
bunnyvicious

Sorry, the first pe 6/21
11:20 am
Jacula

pe6/21 - seabird & pe6/21 vehicle fuel.
11:21 am
Golux13

pe6 is either gas oline or a seabird
11:21 am
cybernan

pe 6 -- a bird -- change last vowel of the gas
11:21 am
caitlyn

Hi bunny!!
11:21 am
Golux13

fr6: chop off the ending of a word for trivial
11:21 am
Haz1558

The first pe6/21 is French for father, then two vowels.
11:22 am
bunnyvicious

I have those two as my last pe 6/21's, but I have a pe 6/21 between to hit and perky. Is it a variation of the gas or bird?
11:22 am
Jacula

bunny - French for father + 2 vowels.
11:23 am
Haz1558

Bunny - take the first three letters of the perky one, then three vowels, all different, ending in the first.
11:23 am
Jacula

Oh, Haz just said that! I must be on a go slow here.

Jacula

gramma - fr6 - if you spent money on fripperies you might be told not to be so fr****ous.
11:25 am
Haz1558

The fr6 is usually seen as part of a longer word. F plus the r word meaning enemy or competitor, but change the last vowel.
11:25 am

hm. im more a licquorice type of person. I mean, i prefer it to chocolate. I mean, I'm not really a chocolate monster. Not that I'm any kind of monster. But. I do enjoy dark chocolate if it has mint bits in it. But. Those things are rare in Holland. In fact I haven't seen any yet.
