it may react with the methotrexate... Is rhumatoid Arth. considered an auto-immune disorder?

plaquenil stopped working for me; so they upped methotrexate and took me off plaquenil, and I have done better

I'm lucky that plaquenil is still working -- was on predisone for years but gradually dropped it and am still ok. Was on methotrexate for a while after cancer surgery and a flare-up, but dropped that too.

Hello all. I understand that the people that have been here a LONG time like to have things done the way that they are used to. I have tried to fit in and not upset anyone. However, they need to be a little understanding that their way is not the only way.I don't ask for clues early on, but appreciate it when one comes my way. You newer people were correect. If they don't like the clues, just don't look in the chat for awhile. The only way that Babble will keep on, is with new people paying their fee and getting into the game. They shouldn't be chased off because they do things a little different.
1:18 am

dispatch, I found the who thing stupid cause of decided remarks to the newbies clueing!!
They are in their right to chat and clue... there is no rule about waiting one hour or just clueing the first two letters...

not to keep this going...but...cyborg "called 3 or 4 (?) words in a row. Nan had called a couple of those earlier. i think she was putting cyborg in his/her (?) place that she got them first. that's how i took it that it started
1:22 am

I was not looking at the log when I clued, I was looking at the puzzle, so I did not see it, but it was not a big issue, as the slug said to the snail

CyborgScrabbler

Oh right, so I was right, good!
3:02 am
Douglas

You can't take three from two,
Two is less than three,
So you look at the four in the tens place.
Now that's really four tens,
So you make it three tens,
Regroup, and you change a ten to ten ones,
And you add them to the two and get twelve,
And you take away three, that's nine.
Is that clear?
3:02 am
CyborgScrabbler

Hi lynxxx! yes it is! going back to the wheel of doom for the next 5 nights! :)
3:02 am

bye cyborg! lovely to meet you!
3:02 am
Douglas

Now instead of four in the tens place
You've got three,
'Cause you added one,
That is to say, ten, to the two,
But you can't take seven from three,
So you look in the hundreds place.
3:03 am
Douglas

From the three you then use one
To make ten ones...
(And you know why four plus minus one
Plus ten is fourteen minus one?
'Cause addition is commutative, right.)
And so you have thirteen tens,
And you take away seven,
And that leaves five...

Well, six actually.
But the idea is the important thing.

mrpresident

3:52 am
Haz1558

Did you disown him - pretend not to be with him?
3:52 am
mrpresident

he was followed by a couple of girls... they were commenting on how gay he looked!! he was very offended!!
3:53 am
Haz1558

Maybe they meant he was happy? Or maybe not......
3:53 am
mrpresident

he turned around and gave them a serve!! I thought he looked very happy myself! :)
3:53 am
Haz1558

I don't know - I thought he could have carried off the Richard Gere look.
3:54 am
mrpresident

3:57 am
Buttonman

4:04 am
mrpresident

oh yes!! I managed to be the first called up for the xmas company present (sat on my bosses lap and gave him a kiss! cause he was santa!!) fell into the band at the end of the night (took someone with me :) she was laughing)... then went to the afterparty and the bosses daughter told everyone that I was 'so sexy' and then got proposed to by just about everyone!! managed to get home by 3am without incident!
4:04 am
Haz1558

Button - first three letters of the man's name, then plural. Unless it's a different one.
4:06 am
Haz1558

And that was you being good! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and resisted the temptation to dump lickety, white trousers and all....

4:08 am
Haz1558

But you do now! Fanciable is so much more flattering and less graphic.
4:09 am
Ankhorite

Ithink that is *such* a rude phrase,that MILF business. Hey, what does "give them a serve" mean?
4:09 am
mrpresident

4:19 am
Haz1558

Did you mutter at him as well?
4:20 am
Ankhorite

No, actually, Dear clucked like a chicken at me... kind of an early-sleepy-rooster imitation...
4:20 am
Ankhorite

And fell back asleep, I'm sure.

Katydid0615

I know what it means Ankh . . . it is when a kid gets good and onry

Katydid0615

or i guess i should say bad and onry, or real onery
4:49 am
Katydid0615

or however it is you spell the root word
4:50 am
Ankhorite

Except that there should be an R between the O and N! (I found it in a Scrabble word list, but not in ANY dictionary, tsk tsk tsk!)
4:51 am
Ankhorite

Very nice icon, Katy. Yeah, I tried five dictionaries, not in any, but you are right per the Scrabble list.
4:52 am
Katydid0615

hmmmm....i guess i've always spelled it wrong then, cause i never even thought about putting an "r" as the second letter. LOL
4:52 am
Ankhorite

heh! Regional, maybe? Southern or Western US?
4:53 am
Katydid0615

Midwest. Indiana.

5:01 am

Its been pretty bad in our State this past week Ankh - we need some of that water that seems to be flooding parts of the States
5:01 am
Ankhorite

Very sorry to hear it.
5:02 am
Ankhorite

Last night, the news mentioned that global warming is fouling up Austria's tourist trade by shortening their snow season. :(
5:03 am
spanner

We are also having some flooding over here and its abnormally mild for this time of year
5:03 am
sunny09

it seems that there are extreme weather conditions everywhere and some freaky ones as well. I don't think I have ever heard of a tornado in England before
5:04 am
Ankhorite

No! I never have, either!
5:04 am
spanner

We had another one earlier this year in Birmingham...
5:04 am
Ankhorite

*looks longingly at Spanner's pretty Blue*
5:04 am
spanner

Hes such a puff ankh
5:05 am
Ankhorite

Just what I like, a 60-pound lapdog. Er, five stone?
5:05 am
spanner

His latest thing is to sit under the christmas tree staring longingly at the sugar canes and sighing...
5:05 am
Ankhorite

*sighs right along with him*
5:06 am
spanner

He is a big brute. 30 inches to the shoulder and solid muscle
5:06 am
sunny09

do you share with him spanner?? poor puppy!
5:07 am
spanner

Yup, thats why we have sugar canes and not chocolate on the tree, 'cause its poinonous to dogs
5:07 am
lynxxx

bye everyone - still got 48 to find but morning job
5:07 am
Ankhorite

Our cousins put their giant Weim in a farm-kennel through MARCH because the wife is really very very pregnant, hi-risk. They can't leave the dog with us because -- I'm not kidding -- the poor dog is allergic to our yard.
5:07 am
Ankhorite

Bye, Lynxxx.
5:07 am

5:08 am
spanner

Wow, never heard of a dog being allegic to a YARD!!!
5:08 am
Ankhorite

But I feel for poor Sage, living apart. :( Wish she was here.
5:08 am
Ankhorite

Sage must be near Blue's size; 90 pounds and not fat. A moose of a Weim.
5:08 am
sunny09

bye Lynxxx, hope that cool change comes through!
5:10 am
spanner

Blue is sweet really..I also have a black lab called puddin and blue adores him. I never had to house train him, cause when he stooped Blue just picked him up and took him outside..
5:10 am
Ankhorite

LOL!
5:10 am
Ankhorite

A nanny dog, how nice!
5:11 am
spanner

Funny thing is puddin is fully grown and when ever blue feels like hes in the way he just grabs his collar and moves him
5:11 am
Ankhorite

Old habits...
5:12 am
spanner

Poor pud never gets to lie on the hearth in front of the fire...LOL
5:12 am
Ankhorite

awwww.... :)
5:17 am
spanner

Is it just me or is this a bit tough?
5:18 am
sunny09

I had a dog who was like that with our cat. When she had kittens, Silky would lie beside the basket and nudge them back in with her nose if they became too adventurous and if mama cat was gone too long she would herd her back into the basket.
5:18 am
Katydid0615

i got half way through spanner, then it seems to have gotten tough.
5:19 am
Ankhorite

What kind was Sunny? Me, too, Katy.
5:19 am
spanner

Oh Bless. I love cats, but can only watch them from a distance as I am very allegic to them, but arent they fascinating. I can understand why the Egyptians worshipped them...
5:20 am
Ankhorite

i didn't, until we had rats in the garage, and suddenly cats seemed entirely divine to me.
5:21 am
sunny09

Silky was a cross with a blue heeler/bull terrier and a foxy thingy. LOL She stood to my knee and was cattle dodg along her back, with a foxy head but big, and big bully feet. Sweet as a lamb though.
5:21 am
spanner

I ahve a theory that the egyptians worshipped the cats and the cats have never forgotten it...LOL
5:22 am
Ankhorite

A cattle dog heart.
5:22 am
Ankhorite

Oh, yes, cats look at us with disdain... my college buddy had a dog (near-sheltie) that would herd her mother's 13 cats.
5:22 am
Ankhorite

You could ask for a cat (or child) by name, and she would herd them to you.
5:23 am
Ankhorite

*I* got herded by a chowchow once! Teddy was mad at me for petting other dogs in his sight, but out of his reach... when I came back to the yard, he nipped me all the way back to the house post-haste!
5:24 am
Ankhorite

okay, 75 done for me, time to go do something else... txs for the chat, all, happy babbling, and I hope the rain does come to you Aussies!
5:24 am
spanner

Clever. Blue is a bit worried about cats, he kind of circles the farm cat when she pops over. They are like 2 fighters waiting for the bell. All hell will break loose if it ever rings...
5:24 am
