just had my hubby on the phone. He says thank you all for the support and the hugs, very much appreciated. And, as one of you asked: they have asked him if they were allowed to contact him if something else comes up, or even if they come across a good job for him at another firm. So at least something good is in motion there.
1:31 am
Aussieme

Thats good sprite, really good...

Jellen

Could someone clue ka 5/20, please?
1:32 am

that is what I thought. Anyway, they were really enthusiastic about him as a person, only he did not fit this job in their opinion.
And they tipped him off on a possbile job offer that he would be good for, at another firm... he is going to look into that as well.
1:32 am

Was really bitter and down yesterday about it. In my defense I have to say I had a lousy lousy morning with a major panic attack, so too low on energy to take a disappointment with faith and flair. Hope to do better today.

2:24 am

jilli perhaps you are missing the ak5/18?
2:24 am

I don't think so, Fran... that comes from the H left of it.
2:24 am
jillibus

nope, fran, wrong H
2:24 am
FranMag

one of the As is the name of Disney's little mermaid.
2:24 am

2:25 am
jillibus

Yes indeed, FM, I am missing the ak5/18 and have been staring around for it for ages, lol!
2:25 am

I think it is one of the 6s from the drug.
2:25 am
sprite

the ak leads kids in scouting
2:26 am
FMitch

Okey dokey - think pack leader in the scouts
2:26 am
jillibus

thanks for the ak, sprite!
2:26 am
FranMag

2:26 am

my favorite word today is nu7/48, sounds like religious ladies going banzi, not the true meaning but it made me laugh at the mental image. Good luck all. g'nite *poof*
2:54 am

she writes about gratitude: there is always something to be grateful about. If you cannot find a single thing, be happy you do not have to eat a living frog today.

You get what you need

YAY BabbleRabble!
2:55 am
Atalante

you would like "The Battersea Road Guide to Enlightenment" - its about a lady who wants to makes her life happier after a divorce etc etc, she goes through all these different therapies and classes and weird mystic thingies. and concludes in the end that she could either spend her life striving to be "better" with all these strange things that might or might not help her, or she could simply get on with her life and live it rather than spending all her time not wanting it
2:56 am
sprite

too true... I am being an obstinate adolescent today, in spite of my years. And I do realise it. Just not totally ready to turn it around.
2:56 am

2:57 am
Lizsark

Atalante

I will concentrate on your calling me friend, Ata, and not on your need to kick me in the behind.
2:59 am
BabbleRabble

Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love
Love the one you're with
Love the one you're with

Lizsark

as cockers do
3:10 am
Atalante

she was In Disgrace yesterday so she was eyeing from the sofa rather than trying to sit at my feet
3:10 am
Lizsark

oh no what'd she do?
3:10 am
Atalante

she ran round on some very nasty mud flats and wouldn't come back. they are very dangerous cos the mud is so soft, its easy to get stuck. She was chasing ducks
3:11 am
Lizsark

scary! I take it she was ok?
3:11 am
Atalante

oh, yes, fine. as always! I'm sure the mud is fine for dogs, they spread their weight much better than we do
3:12 am
Lizsark

doesn't stop you worrying though
3:13 am
Atalante

no. and she was foul when she got back (see flickr). needed a big shower and shampoo
3:13 am
sprite

3:14 am

3:23 am
FMitch

That was their lucky day then :)
3:23 am
Atalante

3:24 am
Lizsark

Well, are we not up to a challenge?

Atalante

nooooooo lol
3:35 am
Haz1558

Come, come, Atalante! Where's your bulldog spirit?
3:35 am
FMitch

She drank it?
3:35 am
Atalante

I dont think its woken up yet!
3:35 am
Haz1558

Not along with the poteen from yesterday? No wonder she's groggy!
3:36 am
Atalante

wow. my resolution has lasted 7 minutes! she's now doing the head through arm thing
3:36 am
Atalante

poteen? *shudder*
3:37 am
FMitch

You weren't leading her astray were you Haz as I wasn't around to keep an eye on things?

lol Ata
3:37 am
Haz1558

No, indeed. I was issuing warnings all day about the illegality and lethalness of 'wee still'.
3:38 am
Haz1558

A vet student with husband made the mistake of taking some poteen that was offered as 'Christmas cheer'. He had to take the rest of the day and the next day off to recuperate.
3:39 am
FMitch

100% proof?
3:39 am
Haz1558

Perhaps even more.
3:39 am
Atalante

ouch
3:40 am
FMitch

eeek, well I bet he never did it again.
3:40 am
Haz1558

He went into the Ministry of Agriculture where he would be safe from farmers and their offers.
3:40 am
Atalante

I've never been so ill as when I first drank some Philipino rum. that stuff couldn't have been far off illegal
3:41 am
Atalante

I honestly thought I was dying the next morning!
3:41 am
Haz1558

Virtual drinking is so much safer. No hangover and it doesn't affect your looks.
3:41 am
FMitch

Pish, no backbone, the wimp! The studen that is not Ata.
3:42 am
Haz1558

He was a bit of a big girl's blouse.
3:42 am
Haz1558

The laughing fences are here in numbers!
3:42 am
Atalante

perfect for the ministry then
3:43 am
FMitch

They are indeed and a fair smattering of fish too
3:43 am
Haz1558

Indeed, Atalante.
3:43 am
Atalante

3:45 am
Haz1558

Oh dear - are you coming down with something?
3:45 am
FMitch

sore throat, swollen glands in neck. Think Ive just been pushing myself a bit too hard recent;y.
3:46 am
Haz1558

Tut tut! Although it IS the time of year for colds and things to go around. What were your fellow-students like?
3:48 am
FMitch

Very intersting mix, of retired and working mostly female (2 men) and we all seem to have some common threads that had brought us to the course.
3:48 am
FMitch

Think it will become a good solid group over time.
3:49 am
Haz1558

It'll be fun to get to know them a bit better. They'll all be keen, I'm sure. I remember always being amazed at how studious and eager mature students were. They put us young things to shame.
3:49 am
Flask1

Good morning all.........a clue please for nu7/48 please?
3:50 am
FMitch

yes, I am definiately one of the younger participants.
3:50 am
Haz1558

Good morning Flask. Did you sleep well? I'm just started so can't help, I'm afraid,but I'll have a quick look.
3:52 am
Flask1

Morning Haz.......I did yes, thankyou!
I was too busy trying to get finished last night to join in the conversation you were having about books........I just love books....biographies in particular!
3:53 am
Haz1558

Flask - nu7 - begin with a religious sister, finish with what looks like a badly spelt physical threat.
3:53 am
FMitch

Hi Flask, umm it's quite a hard one to clue think of women who wear the habbit + a vowel + American for a drawing pin spelt phonetically.
3:53 am
Flask1

I will put any of my paperback into a charity shop but I tend to hang on to my hardbacks!
3:54 am
Haz1558

Or religious sister, three letters of Hobbit's owner, finish off with sprite's least favourite letter.
3:54 am
Haz1558

I know, Flask - but I can't even get the paperbacks out of the house. It's a problem.....
3:55 am
FMitch

Great 2nd clue there Haz
3:55 am
Flask1

thanks Mitch.....
3:55 am
Haz1558

And what if you want to read something again?
3:55 am
Haz1558

Thanks FMitch - I get the feeling that word will be much requested today!
3:56 am
Haz1558

There's a babblet - the anagram for the gardener's store, coming from the top e.
3:57 am
Flask1

thats the second time we've had it, in my lifetime anyway.......I love that word...lol......a good clue could be...onslought from holy daleks!!!!
3:58 am
Haz1558

I know - once I saw it I remembered it from before. It's in the same class as gorhen, the slasher chicken.
3:58 am
Karys

Good morning everyone..... all well I trust :)
3:59 am
Flask1

Hi Karys!
3:59 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Karys. Nice to see you. FMitch is a bit crook, to use Australian parlance. She's a fine upstanding citizen, though.
4:00 am
FMitch

Re books, thee is always room on the shelf for a few favourites that will be visited again and again, but there are so many new ones out there waiting to be read.
Morning Karys and happy smiley cat.

Oh for those that weren't on earlier dear Fran is back from Guam and was babbling.
4:00 am
Karys

Oh dear ...what's up with Mitch then ?
4:00 am
Flask1

FMitch...you need some of that amber nectar down yer throat....lol..
4:00 am
Haz1558

It's good that Fran's back again.
4:00 am
Karys

oh there she is... ( talking about her behand her back, again ! )
4:01 am
FMitch

Talking too much probably Karys. LOL, think I should have had tonsils out as a child, they are my achilies heel so to speak.
4:01 am
Flask1

Mitch...how is she?
4:01 am
Karys

now there's a word 'behand'.... what could that be I wonder !
4:01 am
FMitch

She came across as fine but still in shock too.
4:02 am
Karys

may I ask what has happened to Fran ?
4:02 am
Haz1558

Behand one's back is what signers do if they don't want the person to know what they're saying about them.
4:02 am
Flask1

Am glad she's able to come back....
4:02 am
Karys

LOL Haz
4:03 am
FMitch

Fran said she was grateful for all the messages and thoughts too.
4:03 am
Haz1558

Karys, Fran's sister was killed in a road accident.
4:03 am
Flask1

Yes Mitch, I know exactly what you mean about the book.....I can seem to not buy one or two when shopping.....
4:04 am
Karys

Flask !!!....how lovely to see you and your Handsome Son !!
4:04 am
Flask1

Aww..thanks Karys!
4:04 am
Karys

Oh dear.... that is such a dreadful thing to have happen.... poor Fran
4:05 am
Karys

thats a lovely happy picture Flask !
4:05 am
Flask1

At the time, it was dreadful....we all felt for her.....she's very popular here!
4:05 am
Haz1558

Another sad thing is that Carleekat's husband was badly injured in a road accident. There was talk of him not being able to walk again, but he is making progress in that direction, apparently.
4:06 am
Karys

indeed Flask... we all feel we know each other, and consequently feel for each other too
4:06 am
Flask1

Karys, that was taken on Sept 11, this year on my 53rd birthday!
4:07 am
Karys

I heard about Carlee, that was awful too.... we really could do with some good things happening
4:07 am
FMitch

Haz, when do you get the answers for those brain teasers the other day?
4:08 am
FMitch

KaToad's baby is due on Monday I think - thats a lovely thing.
4:08 am
Haz1558

I had HOPED to get the answers from the brains assembled here..... I'll have another try at them,but no indication given on the form about answers. I could be bitter and say that half of them are made up.
4:08 am
FMitch

Sorry you all need to swich your FMitch to English translators on.
4:08 am
Karys

oh good....a friend of mine had another grandaughter day before yesterday
4:09 am
FMitch

In which case Haz I am binning the scrap of paper I wrote them down on as it's lying on my desk mocking me.
4:10 am
Katydid0615

4:10 am
Haz1558

No, don't bin it! I can give you more to join the mockers.
4:10 am
FMitch

I bets thats the double vowel one Katy
4:11 am
FMitch

BabRab clued it earlier as la + what a diva sings minus last letter
4:11 am
Katydid0615

4:11 am
FMitch

4:12 am

Round of applause for Katy!
4:12 am

I am waiting for the sun to come round just a little more before I start my gardening day
4:12 am
Flask1

4:12 am
Katydid0615

4:12 am
Karys

thanks. took me forever to find it even with the clues. I kept trying to use "alto" and that didn't work!
4:14 am
Katydid0615

anyone need anything before I go?
4:14 am
Karys

4:14 am

I do runner beans in a big half barrel, but thats about all veggiewise. We do have some grapes this year 'tho.
4:16 am
Haz1558

How did the grapes do this year with so little sun?
4:16 am
FMitch

Aparently its been a good year for vines.
4:17 am
Haz1558

I'm surprised, I thought they would have suffered. Shows you what I know!
4:17 am
Karys

Very well Haz, could have been a little bigger, but they are only in a pot on the patio anyway, not enough for wine !
4:17 am
FMitch

What with all of that and the aples and figs from my Mums, bliss. I am hoping for somewhere with a garden when I move.
4:18 am
Karys

Are you thinking of moving Mitch ?
4:19 am
FMitch

I am definiately moving just haven't found where yet. Property developers came knoking on the door so to speak of the flats where I am now.
4:19 am
Karys

Are you sorry ?
4:19 am
FMitch

Mind you until I complete I won't be counting any chickens but so far so good.
4:20 am
FMitch

Yes very as I love where I am and will be moving quite some distance as round here too pricey, but wonderful opportunity to become mortgage free.
4:21 am
Haz1558

I still think you should get the Location Location I can't be bothered typing it again people onto it.
4:21 am
Karys

so, a bit of a mixed blessing then, it's strange how things sometimes force us to do something we wouldn't have chosen, only to find it was the right thing after all.
4:21 am
Haz1558

They always seem to find amazing places at good prices.
4:22 am
Haz1558

And you could pretend to be difficult and turn up your nose at what they ofer.
4:22 am
Haz1558

offer. Anybody would turn down an ofer.
4:22 am
Andree

hi everyone
4:22 am
Karys

I like to watch some of those 'moving' programmes, except when they are talking telephone number prices !
4:23 am
Haz1558

Hello Andree.
4:23 am
FMitch

I look on the Ch4 website Haz and couldn't see that they were filming a new series.
4:23 am
Haz1558

Husband imparted interesting information yesterday. House prices in Belfast have risen 47% in the last year - highest in UK!
4:23 am
Karys

Hi and bye Andree.....sun's round now, best strike whilst iron etc..etc..
4:24 am
Haz1558

Ah well. You don't want to be doing that Try before you buy one. It's a BIT contrived (sarcastic or what!)
4:24 am
Haz1558

Bye Karys, don't try to do too much in one day!
4:25 am
FMitch

Wow Haz thats some increase. That has got to be one of the worst progs.

Bye Karys
4:25 am
Haz1558

Doing babble has saved me from looking at some of those programmes!
4:26 am
FMitch

Right, I have emails stacking up waiting for my attention, had better get act together and at least look as though I know what I am doing.
4:27 am
Haz1558

I KNOW you know what you're doing!
4:27 am
Haz1558

Anyway, I should take a break as well and make the house civilised. You've distracted me from getting a lot of words but I'll forgive you. You're not well.
4:27 am
FMitch

What? what am I doing?
4:28 am
Haz1558

You're distracting me from the word search. You know you're to blame. You just know.
4:28 am
FMitch

I've been behaving myself all morning :) Oh that old excuse LOL
HAve a good day and see you later Im sure.
4:28 am
Haz1558

But I meant that in the office you do know what you're doing, so you don't have to look as though you do.
4:29 am
FMitch

LOL *poof*
4:29 am
Haz1558

Off Igo as well, and I'll speak to you all later. (Sounds a bit headmistressish, doesn't it?) Byee!

Atalante

I had a musk ox creep up on me in Greenland. It was foggy and I needed to go to the loo so went out of camp about 50m and did what was necessary. turned round while still crouched down to see this HUGE musk ox glaring at me about 2m away. never screamed so loudly!
5:35 am
lideola

actually, its an ed + 2 consonants
5:36 am
lilliann

sorry,meant 2 cons.
5:36 am
movieman

5:36 am
Atalante

5:37 am
Atalante

did I run away? ohhhhhh yes
5:37 am
Atalante

someone shot a flare at it from the camp and I legged it
5:37 am
lilliann

lol.
5:37 am
lilliann

did it chase you?
5:38 am
Atalante

no, luckily. cos they certainly run faster than I do
5:38 am
lilliann

hope you had your running shoes on!!
5:38 am
Atalante

you dont realise how *big* they are - and how big polar bears are - till you really see them up close. they are *huge*
5:39 am
Atalante

we got chased by another musk ox a week or so later, we had to shoot that one, soooo sad
5:40 am
lilliann

hopefully we are going on a safari next year which will be great to see the animals in the wild and not zoos for a change.
5:40 am
lilliann

ahh,what a shame.
5:40 am
Atalante

oh wow! you'll love it!
5:41 am
Atalante

but as you said, when you have 2 tonnes of muscle bearing down on you, there's not much else you can do!
5:41 am
lilliann

my daughter will be 9 then so i think she'll be the right age to appreciate it.
5:41 am
Atalante

oh yes! wow, she'll remember it for ever I would think
5:42 am
lilliann

it will be great to see elephants, as they are one of my favourites.
5:42 am
Atalante

and lions!
5:43 am
Atalante

and giraffes! I'd love to see giraffes properly
5:43 am
lilliann

and rhinos!!
5:44 am
lilliann

they can't half move!!
5:44 am
Atalante

and hippos! dangerous little beasties that they are!
5:44 am
lilliann

i know, and they look quite cute but very dangerous!
5:44 am
Atalante

incredible how such huge things can *run*
5:45 am
Atalante

and cheetahs, I'd love to see cheetahs
5:45 am
lilliann

as long as i don't have to,because my wheels won't go that fast!!
5:46 am
Atalante

you need an added rocket pack
5:46 am
lilliann

i want to see them hunt, but also i don't.if you get what i mean?
5:47 am
Atalante

oh yes. you want to see it, but not see the scared animal being hunted
5:47 am
lilliann

i could with a few!!!especially when i'm in tescos!!!
5:47 am
lilliann

meant could do.
5:48 am
Atalante

I could do with a big sharp stick to poke people out of the way in tescos!
5:48 am
lilliann

my daughter won't like that part!
5:49 am
lilliann

but it's life and i think she should see that it's not like the zoos where they are given it.in the wild they have to hunt or die!
5:49 am
Atalante

no, you might have to subtly distract her on occasion
5:50 am
Atalante

you're right, she should certainly see it, just not to told to, if she really doesn't want to
5:50 am
P.J.

ooh boy
5:52 am
lilliann

sharp sticks aren't enough!!i hate shopping at the best of times but people in tescos drive me to distraction,especially when they stand in the middle of an isle taking it up with trolleys,gassing away and don't move out the way for you even though you're practically on top of them.it really infuriates me!!!
5:53 am
Atalante

they would be a good start though! Tasers might be even better. Espceially for the mid-aisle chatters
5:53 am
lilliann

great idea.where can i get one?!!
5:54 am
Atalante

if I ever work out where, i#ll let you know!
5:54 am
P.J.

easy laddies
5:54 am
Trebor46

no the workst is pensioners, when u only have a limited time and u want in and out
5:55 am
Atalante

its just wishful thinking, hodag!
5:55 am
Fordy

speaking of tasers i'm annoyed tase and tased aren't in the puzzle! haha
5:55 am
lilliann

i just run into them now in my chair.i get wheelchair rage.don't come near me when i've got my cap on back to front.it won't be pretty!!!
5:56 am
Atalante

the *worst* are those d**n self-service checkouts which never work! those waste more time than pensioners and chatters put together!
5:56 am
P.J.

I see,i can go along with that........lol
5:56 am
lilliann

omg,i used one of those once.never again!!
5:57 am
Fordy

tbh they're usually ok in tesco but never try the ones in asda! if you make a mistake it takes forever to correct it
5:57 am
Atalante

they really are evil supermarket-ified!
5:57 am
toadandtoadette

I love the self check outs... but I worked retail for a long time (not grocery) so I understand how to use them
5:57 am
lilliann

the one i used was in somerfields.
5:58 am
Atalante

yours probably work. the uk ones don't! (well, have issues, a lot of the time)
5:59 am
Atalante

we have one in tesco's that I swear is possessed
5:59 am
toadandtoadette

we just got some new ones on post and they work. :)
5:59 am
lilliann

i thought it would be alot quicker.it took me 10 times longer,and i did what it told me to.
5:59 am
toadandtoadette

I've never seen them in the german markets or stores
5:59 am
lilliann

don't blame the!!
6:00 am
lilliann

meant them!
6:00 am
lideola

i love them in Home Depot and Lowes. In the market I tend to stay away from them because I usually have HUGE orders and prefer to just bag while someone else checks out
6:00 am
Atalante

sounds familiar lilli!
6:00 am
Atalante

we've only got them in supermarkets so far, I think
6:00 am
P.J.

I have to use the electric scooters in the stores when I shop but,I find that most people are very nice and helpful. Every now and then you find one bad apple and i feel sorry for their ignerence!!(I spelled that wrong)...:)
6:02 am
Atalante

most people are, its just some .....
6:02 am
lilliann

don't get me started on the shops.i also have an electric scooter but can only get in 1 shop in my village and even then there is always boxes,trolleys etc in the way.
6:03 am
NonnieLight

I like the self-checkout because usually you and zip in and zip out. What I don't like is there are 4 of them at the store I shop and generally 2 of them aren't up and running!
6:04 am
Atalante

I *love* the idea of self-checkout, I just wish it would work properly
6:04 am
lilliann

when i'm out with my hubby and bairn i take my normal wheelchair and i hate shopping because i can never get around a shop properly and people with prams have trouble.it'll get even worse now that xmas is coming.i'm just going to ram everything!!!definate wheelchair rage!!
6:05 am
P.J.

I think at that point I would be speaking to the store manager! (he wouldn't like me after that)
6:05 am
NonnieLight

When they first installed them, they were too sensative. Now that they've adjusted them I can bag my groceries with the best of 'em!
6:06 am
Trebor46

prams, children, pensioners should be banned from supermarkets
6:06 am
lshult

aa5/10??
6:06 am

what about wheelchairs?
6:06 am
toadandtoadette

what are prams?

6:07 am

6:07 am

things you put babies in
6:07 am
toadandtoadette

oh okay.
6:07 am

never heard that word before
6:07 am
P.J.

what are pensioners?
6:07 am
lideola

retirees hodag
6:07 am
Trebor46

senior citizens
6:07 am
lilliann

do you call them strollers toad?
6:08 am
P.J.

I see,I am one of them and I like me.......lol
6:08 am
toadandtoadette

yes I do
6:09 am
Trebor46

but why do they need to go shopping when those that work only have a short time to do it in and pensuioers have all day, and in some cases all night as we are told the dont sleep much
6:09 am
lilliann

everyone should be banned from supermarkets especially when i'm shopping!!
6:09 am
toadandtoadette

I've heard them called trolleys though. its interesting what the different cultures call somethings
6:10 am
lilliann

when my husband's away, i usually do it online.much easier.
6:10 am
toadandtoadette

here, on post, they allow those with disabilities to enter the commissary (grocery store) 30 minutes before it opens
6:10 am
lideola

my Polish nanny kept calling them "strolleys" because she couldn't get it straight between stroller and trolley
6:10 am
NonnieLight

My folks shopped the military commisary when I was a child. During those days children were not allowed in that store. Makes it too difficult for families especially if one of the spouses is deployed. Thankfully, they had changed that rule by the time I was raising my own children.
6:10 am
Atalante

toad, that is *remarkably* sensible
6:11 am
lilliann

that's nice toad.
6:11 am
toadandtoadette

oh that's a new word. we should use that. strolleys
6:11 am
toadandtoadette

really Nonnie.. wow. I've never heard of that
6:11 am
NonnieLight

Great idea, toad!
6:12 am
lideola

when my 2nd was born and i had a newborn and a 16 month old, i did a LOT of online market shopping... the $10 delivery charge was SO worth it
6:12 am
P.J.

don't forget all of us retirees already put in our time to make a nicer world for everyone else.............lol
6:12 am
toadandtoadette

I know lots of families that do that in the states. I agree it would be worth the $10
6:13 am
NonnieLight

It was in Washington DC, during the sixties. I've even shopped a commisary where they had arrows on the floor and you were to follow the arrows!
6:13 am
lideola

my husband and I now make it a night out with the kids
6:13 am
Trebor46

nobody asked Hodag
6:13 am
toadandtoadette

haha. traffic control Nonnie
6:14 am
P.J.

come again?
6:14 am
lideola

he takes one and I take the other, we split th elist and have a race- the girls think it is a blast when we make it a race
6:14 am
toadandtoadette

oops sorry I just realized I used a word. :(
6:14 am
lideola

whoever gets back to the car first wins
6:14 am
lideola

not nice Trebor
6:14 am
NonnieLight

trebor--I hope I'm not being too bold but you may want to watch your attitude and keep it respectful. Thank you!
6:14 am

6:20 am
movieman

What trebor doesn't seem to realise is that he might not even be on this planet if it wasn't for those brave souls who fought in the various wars.....
6:20 am
lideola

you know, there are a few things lacking in this site. The first being the ability to send a private message
6:20 am
Atalante

we don't. but if you did something good, I'm sure you'd like to be able to mention it. but yes, I agree in a way, it can get oppressive. but we just have to deal with that
6:20 am
Trebor46

oh u go for it lideola
6:20 am
lideola

the second being the ability to mute people
6:21 am
Trebor46

oh and being on this planet is a good thing is it, with the state its in
6:21 am
NonnieLight

I haven't been following this season, toad but I do remember past seasons where someone felt the need to bare all. Yikes!
6:21 am

6:21 am
P.J.

7:40 am
greenbayladi

hi Scarlet. Good Morning back
7:40 am
Mom

Good morning Scarlet
7:40 am
Scarlet

Mom's right, greenbay, it has been a while since seeing you. Hope everything is all right! :-)
7:40 am
Anniebrook

Scarlet, I am not happy at all, even a bagel with a schmear will not do it....12-3, I cant believe it!
7:41 am
Scarlet

Always good to see your smiling face, Mom!
7:41 am
greenbayladi

yes it is.
7:41 am
Mom

is that the Rockies game Annie?
7:41 am
KatieMcG

afternoon everyone :-)
7:41 am
Anniebrook

Mom, it was the Cleveland Indians
7:41 am
Scarlet

AnnieB... it was a slaughter yesterday in the games... Maybe the Yanqueros needed to blow the carbon out of their bats! The Rockies won again!!
7:41 am
Mom

Yours too Scarlet. I feel like it isn't morning until I have come down and "seen" everyone
7:42 am
Mom

Hi Katie/
7:42 am
Mom

I remember seeing during the night that the Rockies had scored quite a few runs. I didn't see the Indians score.
7:43 am
Scarlet

Awww... Mom, you always make me smile. Hi, katieW!! We are a few grumpy ladies because of the baseball divisional playoffs yesterday!
7:43 am
Mom

:)
7:43 am
KatieMcG

Ahhhh, baseball is to the british what cricket is to americans, we can see it's fun but we just don't get it!
7:44 am
Mom

Katie, you don't have baseball?
7:44 am
Mom

(showing ignorance here, I am sure)
7:44 am
Anniebrook

Mom, As Scarlet said it was a slaughter in Cleveland yesterday, only hope the Yankees wake up...too good a time to waste...*sigh* ....yes, babble and coffee start my day..would not want it any other way...great group of folks here
7:44 am
Scarlet

AnnieB... it's the New York Yankees... they always find a way to come back! katieW... it's a very complicated, psychological chess game in baseball, but I think cricket is more physically demanding!
7:44 am
KatieMcG

No football is our national game (obviously soccer over with you) :-)
7:45 am
Fordy

I'm sure there are a few baseball clubs around here but nothing widespread and certainly not professional
7:45 am
Scarlet

We ( and I am a huge fan, Katie) have football that is not soccer...
7:45 am
Mom

We never had soccer growing up, it seems like in the last 10 years it has grown in popularity, especially with the school age children
7:46 am
greenbayladi

I love the Yankees
7:46 am
KatieMcG

I'm always impressed with how big your female game is over there, it is struggeling to take off over here as the Premiership is so dominant.
7:46 am
Anniebrook

My grands play soccer.....green you are a true fan then...I wish I was in Cleveland to see the game
7:47 am
Mom

our team (Cincinnati Reds) have been the pits for so long now, I don't think they will ever get their act together
7:47 am
Anniebrook

Scarlet, I googled McCormick Field...it is a wonderful replica...
7:47 am
greenbayladi

yes they lost. today they will win though
7:47 am
Scarlet

It was Cleveland's night... that happens... I am still waiting for the Chicago Cubs to get going!
7:47 am
Fordy

I think football is the easiest game to pick up, in Britain everyone plays it from when they can stand
7:48 am
Anniebrook

Scar, I am not keeping track of the divisions as I should, where are the Cubs as we speak?
7:48 am
Scarlet

Oh, AnnieB... I am so happy that you had a chance to see the field... The Bambino himself loved it!
7:48 am
KatieMcG

I love the passion of football, I had a season ticket until this year but I moved too far away and it was too expensive to keep going
7:49 am
Scarlet

The Cubbies have been in Arizona the past two nights, and they just can't find their groove, so travel day today, and resume in Wrigley for Saturday and Sunday. Short series... if they lose on Saturday, they cry for the rest of the winter.
7:50 am
Anniebrook

We have a Little League Stadium near my home (Mets) which is great fun to see a game played.
7:50 am
Anniebrook

Then I will watch the Cubs play on
Saturday....okay, where are the Red Sox?

7:53 am
Scarlet

You know, Annie, I haven't had time to read the papers for two days, and I thought it odd that Fenway would host one game and leave me hanging for the rest... must find a schedule. They are one-up. Hi, Temple... are you a Phillies' fan?
7:53 am

7:55 am
72 Temple Owl

how are the sox doing?
7:55 am
Scarlet

The Sox are one-up, the Yankees and the Cubbies lost, too!
7:56 am
Anniebrook

Owl, I am a Yankee fan and when the Phillies beat the stuffing out of the Mets it sort of took the stuffing out of me too....New York teams and all that
7:56 am
craggus

craggus

thanks guys, my birthday is on tuesday but with the postal strike everyone was sending cards early!
7:57 am
cool girl

has anyone got the 8 or 9 yet
7:58 am
Anniebrook

not here, cool
7:59 am
Scarlet

Oh, that's nasty, craggus... a postal strike would bring this country to its knees...
7:59 am
craggus

the 8 is the plural of the un7/36 and the 9 is the past tense- un7- a metal detector enthusiast may un7 a treasure
7:59 am
Mom

I keep trying to find ways to use the "let"
7:59 am

yes thanks cool girls

KatieMcG

Postal strike is driving me mad, you can't do anything until next Thursday and that's if we are lucky. Sorry it clashes with you birthday Craggus
8:02 am
craggus

on the bright side at least no bills will arrive for a week lol
8:02 am
Scarlet

Is the postal service privatized, katie and craggus, or is it a goverment-run service?
8:02 am
KatieMcG

LoL
8:03 am
KatieMcG

It a kind of hybrid system, it is a private company but the Government own shares. They probably have a point with the dispute but they are not coming over as reasonable. Its all to do with pensions and modernisation of the service.
8:03 am
craggus

it is open to private companies but all the mail is sorted and delivered by the Royal Mail which is nationalised ( i think thats right!) lol
8:04 am
Mom

feeling foolish here, not getting the un 7
8:04 am
craggus

the posties here, in one office anyway, go out on strike all the time over petty little things and half the time dont even have the backing of the union so never last more than a few hours or a day but still disrupts things
8:04 am
Scarlet

Oh, so it is for the benefits of its workers that has ground it to a halt... does the news keep citizens updated on the progress? And, who is responsible for increasing or creating the pensions? Stock-holders or the government?
8:05 am
craggus

mom- if you were in the garden harvesting potatoes you may have to un7 them
8:05 am
cool girl

craggus i have the kr5 4 20 is there another one two
8:06 am
Haz1558

Glad to report that the Ballymena postmen are working as normal. (Hope no flying pickets arrive)
8:06 am

well DUH! thank you Craggus.
8:06 am

Hi Haz

:o)
8:06 am
Scarlet

LOL, Mom.
8:06 am
KatieMcG

They had a few strikes in the summer (the odd day here and there) however they are now doing back to back two day strikes so they went out yesterday and will not be back to Wednesday morning.
8:06 am
craggus

theres a kr5/18 cool girl
8:06 am
Haz1558

Good morning/afternoon all.
8:06 am

Good morning, Haz. Well, at least you are getting your bills on time!
8:06 am
craggus

hey haz
8:07 am
Mom

(didn't see that N on the bottom) **makes eye appt.**
8:07 am
Haz1558

Isn't it joyful? The bills, I mean.
8:07 am
KatieMcG

Lol Haz, can just see a van full sweeping down and grabbing the postie as he goes about his business. Seriously who can afford to lose 4 day's wages!
8:07 am
cool girl

it was hard enough finding the first one it took me ages
8:08 am
Scarlet

Haz, has your husband encountered any bluetongue, yet? (I hope not)
8:08 am
Haz1558

So, craggus, are you feeling any better today?
8:08 am
craggus

even though most of my bills come off as direct debits, i still feel better if i dont see it in black and white lol
8:08 am
greenbayladi

hi Haz. how are you?
8:08 am
craggus

yeah starting to perk up a bit haz :o)
8:08 am
Haz1558

No, Scarlet, no bluetongue. We're hoping that we're so far north that the midges won't venture to these parts.
8:09 am
Haz1558

It sounds a really nasty disease, I do hope it stays away.
8:09 am
Haz1558

Glad to hear you're on the mend, craggus.
8:10 am
Scarlet

I read that the midge outbreak was sort of a surprise with the cooler weather arriving. Thank you, Haz.
8:10 am
KatieMcG

I'm not having much fun with the gird today :-( sometimes find it that way!
8:10 am
swmbo

Greetings Babblers. Anyone remember me?
8:10 am
Haz1558

The whole thing started off in Africa and has been spreading north. Hopefully winter setting in will stop it in its tracks.
8:10 am
Scarlet

Hi, swmbo, of course I do... good to see you!
8:11 am
Scarlet

I know it affects sheep, too, Haz.
8:11 am
Haz1558

Indeed we do - you set up BabAnon! How many points do I get, swmbo?
8:11 am
Anniebrook

Hi swmbo, of course and Hi Haz!!
8:11 am
swmbo

What is new in babbleland? I haven't been here in a loong time.
8:11 am
Haz1558

Hello Anniebrook!
8:12 am
swmbo

Haz, you get a bonus os 100 points for that LOL
8:12 am
Haz1558

How long is it, swmbo? You haven't heard about paying for really good clues?
8:12 am
craggus

clue for the aa5/14, i cant seem to get it!
8:12 am
Haz1558

Or that the first babbler to get to 3,0000000 points gets to meet George Clooney?
8:12 am
swmbo

No, tell me about it. and what is bluetongue?
8:13 am
Haz1558

aa5/14 - gave a sound of satisfaction.
8:13 am
swmbo

I try to play a bit everyday (almost never finish) but rarely have time to chat. I am on vacation this week
8:13 am
craggus

lol thanks haz
8:13 am
Haz1558

Bluetongue is a disease affecting cloven-footed animals. It originated in Africa, is fatal to many species and is spread by infected midges. The first cases happened in Britain recently. It's NASTY.
8:14 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, craggus.
8:14 am
Mom

Hi SWMBO, welcome back. ")
8:14 am
Mom

:)
8:14 am
Anniebrook

Oh, that is nasty...hope it stops in its tracks as the weather cools down
8:14 am
Scarlet

And costly.
8:15 am
swmbo

bluetongue sounds awful *shudder*
8:15 am
Haz1558

I hope so - farming is in a precarious state at the best of times, never mind having a new disease to contend with.
8:15 am
craggus

am i right in thinking theres to be no government compensation for bluetongued cattle?
8:15 am
KatieMcG

Right better get back to work, new job and all that. Have a good weekend everyone. See you on Monday :-)
8:15 am
craggus

see ya katie!
8:16 am
Mom

bye bye Katie. enjoy your day and weekend.
8:16 am
swmbo

so tell me about how you pay for a good clue?
8:16 am
Haz1558

No, there'll be no compensation because, as I understand it, the animals can be used in the food chain, provided no antibiotics have been used etc.
8:16 am
Haz1558

Now, do I make up a plausible means of clue payment, or do I confess that it's a joke/
8:17 am
Anniebrook

No confessions here
8:18 am
Anniebrook

Haz, I would really like to hear your "plausible means of clue" payment, I bet it will be good
8:18 am
swmbo

there are many ways of making people PAY. Remember, NO ONE expects the Spanish Inquisition, so beware of pulling SWMBO's leg LOL
8:19 am
Atalante

paypal: st_haz_of_babble@hotmail.com $10 a clue
8:19 am
Haz1558

I'm still mulling over it. It's easier to make up clues than to sort out payment issues.
8:19 am
Preethi

Hello Haz
8:19 am
Haz1558

I knew you wouldn't let me down, Atalante!
8:19 am

Well, now, would that USD or CAD???
8:19 am

LOL, atalante
8:19 am

Hello Preethi - haven't seen you around for a while.
8:19 am
Mom

Hi Preethi
8:19 am
Preethi

yeah.. been busy with work
8:20 am
Atalante

whichever has the best exchange rate to the £!
8:20 am
Haz1558

We'd have to have Australian dollars as well. Is there no universal currency, like Esperanto? Okay, it's not a currency, but you get the idea.
8:20 am
Haz1558

I suppose chocolates are a universal currency?
8:20 am
Mom

Hi Ata
8:21 am
Haz1558

So, are you on holiday, Preethi, or just taking a break from work?
8:21 am
Atalante

oh yes, definitely
8:21 am
Atalante

hi mom!
8:21 am
swmbo

Chocolates, now that sounds like a good method of payment to me!
8:21 am

How about chocolate clooneys?:)

Haz - It seems there'll be no postal deliveries until at least next Thursday. I'll look into another way of sending you that book; don't want it going missing in the backlog.
8:23 am
Jacula

Hi, MrP. I hear you're cast-free now.
8:23 am
Haz1558

Thanks, Jacula - like I said, there's no panic.
8:24 am
mrpresident

I have been enjoying the beach and the house enormously!
We got here mid afternoon and went for walks and lay around on the beach!
I am cast free!!! yaaaaaaaay!
I am almost feeling human again! But, still a long way to go.
Lickety has been an angel through all of this so am blessed beyond belief
8:24 am
Mom

have to run, be back later.
Hugs to you all.
8:25 am

bye mom :)
8:25 am

bye, Mom, later
8:25 am

That's great to hear, mrpresident.
8:25 am

What happened to Babble last night? I got frozen off the page in the middle of a convo.
8:25 am
Mom

bye MrP and Annie
8:25 am

Bye Mom, see you later.
8:25 am
Jacula

I took my new book to bed and ended up reading until 3.30am!
8:25 am

Until later, Mom... :-)
8:26 am
Jacula

'Bye, Mom.
8:26 am

bye Scarlet and Jacula. :)
8:26 am
mrpresident

wow jac! must have been some book!
8:26 am
Haz1558

I don't know, Jacula - the last I saw of you was heading to take a phone call, I carried on but found that things I was typing weren't showing on screen. I went to bed as well. Eventually.
8:26 am
mrpresident

ok, is this grid half nice? or do I have to think seriously about starting??
8:27 am
Haz1558

It's got its fair share of normal words, babblets etc. I'm about to get more threatening with it, though.
8:28 am
Atalante

its about a quarter nice
8:28 am
mrpresident

Hey haz!! I must ask a question of hubbyhaz... when a dog has skin lesions... the type that are raised and lumpy and get chewed on... what usually causes them?
8:28 am
mrpresident

thanks ata! will consider being quarter nice to the grid now! LOL
8:29 am
Haz1558

I'm not great on skin - there are so many different kinds. Is it like a wart?
8:29 am
lizmac

Afternoon all.
8:29 am
toadandtoadette

back. and un-stinky now
8:30 am
Haz1558

Or it may be a kind of cyst. If the dog is working at it, maybe best to get it checked out, but don't interrupt your holiday!
8:30 am
mrpresident

no, not a wart... it looks like an injury from a bug bite.
8:30 am
Atalante

or insect bites
8:31 am
Haz1558

If it's oozing (sorry folks, if you're having something to eat), it may be infected post-insect bite.
8:31 am
mrpresident

we did have the injury tested. and it is now going away (thank god), but my doggy is just like my children so am concerned
8:32 am
mrpresident

hi liz! :)
8:32 am
Atalante

well I'm eating, but when I'm used to discussing gangrene at the table, lumps aren't a problem!
8:32 am
Haz1558

Does gangrene feature often in your dinner time chats?
8:33 am
mrpresident

it is amazing to me that my children and my dog are as important ... I think I am over over over over protective of my canine... what you think??
8:33 am
gran

clue please for the first la 5/10
8:33 am
Atalante

quite often, yes! LOL well it depends whether I'm up with my sister or not. Up there conversation ranges from gengrene to osteomyelitis and ulcers, fistulae, you name it!
8:33 am
Atalante

I think you're a normal dog owner LOL!
8:34 am
BabbleRabble

la 5 -- add what a diva sings: ***a
8:34 am
mrpresident

bugger osteomyeloitis... am getting over it.... but still hurt by the result
8:34 am
Haz1558

I think you've hit the nail on the head, mrpresident - the dog is like another child to you. I suppose others would consider me to be too blase about animals, because you do encounter people who go to amazing lengths for them.
8:34 am
swmbo

Well, I am not making much headway with the grid, so I guess I ought to go dress for the day BBL...
8:35 am
Atalante

talking about doggies - do you believe that dogs can scare themselves? Hobbit had a close encounter with Treacherous Mud yesterday, and ever since then she's been really quiet and clingy
8:35 am
mrpresident

hi swmbo!!! long time no see! great to see you again
8:35 am
Haz1558

See you swmbo - thanks for saying hello!
8:36 am
Haz1558

I think spaniels are easily spooked, Atalante.
8:36 am
Atalante

I'm never sure whether its just me attributing behaviour to her - but I think so too. she's really edgy and not happy today
8:37 am
mrpresident

oh ata!! that is so right! Vixie has been a right dynomite lately and we know it is because she is spooked by crazy hormone infested males! She is just hanging to find a 'nice' boyfriend
8:37 am
Atalante

I let her in the bedroom to sleep for once, and she slept *glued* to me all night
8:38 am
Haz1558

Spangle particularly dislikes a section of the road where we walk quite often, because there are occasionally rowdy schoolchildren there. She sits down in protest.
8:38 am
Atalante

has she been spayed??
8:38 am
mrpresident

my vixie?
8:39 am
Atalante

yup
8:39 am
Haz1558

Or was she splootered?
8:39 am
mrpresident

no, she hasn't .... I am looking for a partner for her
8:39 am
Atalante

hmmmm that makes me feel better. I can restore her to happiness with cuddles over a few days. But only if I know that she really is likely to be spooked, if that makes sense
8:39 am
Atalante

or splayed?
8:40 am
mrpresident

I would do anything for her to have a healthy happy litter
8:40 am
Haz1558

Seriously, somebody did once ask how much it would be to get their dog splootered. A handy cross between spaying and neutering.
8:40 am
Haz1558

Are you in touch with other breeders, mrpresident?
8:40 am
Atalante

can you advertise with a sheltie group?
8:40 am
mrpresident

I don't get it haz?
8:40 am
Angelsong

morning, all. I'm a bit late this morning, because I've been cleaning my keyboard. what a mess!
8:41 am
Haz1558

The splootering or the breeding?
8:41 am
mrpresident

we have people contacting us to breed her. But I must be careul cause Shelties are not a common breed
8:41 am
Atalante

my vet here was once asked to display a female dog
8:41 am
Jacula

LOL
8:41 am
Jacula

Hi, Angel.
8:42 am
mrpresident

not in australia anyway
8:42 am
Haz1558

If you speak to Vixie's breeder, he/she ought to know of reputable breeders.
8:42 am
Jacula

MrP - my old dog, sadly long gone now, was a Jack Russell x Sheltie.
8:43 am
mrpresident

and I am really really dumb to the whole whelping thing! am I just not right to be a parent of these dogs?
8:43 am
Haz1558

mrpresident, you won't be the parent! Why do you want Vixie to have a litter?
8:45 am
mrpresident

I want her to have a litter so that she can be a mum, and so that nwe can keep a pup of hers and breed on.... she is the most beautiful dog (excellent temprement) and we would like to have a pup of hers.,
8:45 am
craggus

clue for dh6/24?
8:45 am
mrpresident

oh let me tell you all... I am loving this cast free environment!! I feel like the bionic woman!!!
8:46 am
Atalante

wheeee!
8:47 am
Haz1558

Vixie probably won't care either way about having pups, but if you want to breed from her, there's going to be quite a bit of work involved. Talk to other breeders to find out the pitfalls etc.
8:47 am
BabbleRabble

dh 6.24 --- add a flower: c****tion
8:47 am
mrpresident

I think that her personality and the way she presents is perfect for puppies... she is delightful!
Her puppies would make great pets.
My only concern is.... who gets the pups
8:48 am
Atalante

whoever pays for them and has a good home
8:48 am

8:50 am
Haz1558

I have a friend who breeds Cavaliers. She has about 20 of them, all treated like royalty, but to buy a puppy from her is REALLY difficult. I doubt whether we would pass the test.
8:50 am

Bye Jacula.

oh yes, mrp you could pick and choose at will exactly where you wanted any pup to go, I'm sure

Love ya all heaps and see you later! :))

By the way, it looks like Venice is on after all, Doctor advised hubby to go as wee one is stable and it'll be a long haul (my kind of Doc.)
8:56 am

Another spaniel lover! They're definitely timid at times.
8:56 am

TY Quick.
8:56 am
Haz1558

That's great news, liz - on both counts. I was so frustrated for you last night.
8:56 am
Atalante

what happened, Liz?
8:57 am
Quick

yw liz
8:57 am
lizmac

Yes, it seemed so selfish to bother about a holiday under the circumstances, but it still disappoints doesn't it!
8:58 am
Haz1558

It does. We had to abandon a trip to Paris when father in law took ill.
9:00 am
lizmac

Ata. Hubb's grandson (from previous marriage) has become very ill with Ecoli 507 and needed dialysis, blood transfusion, and operation in a hurry yesterday as his kidneys stopped functioning. He's 18 months, and fit as a flea normally.
9:01 am
Atalante

oh no! how awful :(
9:02 am
lizmac

He's still very ill but responding to treatment slowly but surely. Turning point will be when he starts to pee again.
9:03 am
Haz1558

It's fantastic that he's improving. Children do seem to recover more quickly than adults, but what a worry!
9:03 am
Atalante

never will a pee be so greatly acclaimed!
9:04 am

Misinformation there, it's ecoli 0157 apparently.

11:47 am
lilliann

11:47 am
sprite

I used the list with the Ks this morning, didn't feel like torturing myself too much today. But otherwise listless... but not clueless.
11:47 am
Kallia

11:48 am
Haz1558

I've been making up clues in my head all day for that nu7. They're probably incomprehensible, though!
11:48 am
Kallia

rally must be feeling thick today
11:48 am
Haz1558

nu7 - begin from the end. Sprite's least favourite letter, follow with three letters of Hobbit's owner (a babbler), finish with a three lettered religious sister.
11:48 am
sprite

that nu7: a habit-wearing lady starts a fight with you (badly spelled)
11:49 am
Haz1558

Or nu7 - a dyslexic soldier's call to ceasefire.
11:49 am
sprite

ah, a backward clue, always smart, Haz :)
11:49 am
Haz1558

It just tickled me that there were two palindromes in there, kind of.
11:50 am
sprite

But it was not mine, it was clued like that earlier.
11:50 am

11:50 am

11:50 am
stidmama

what do you mean, religious sister? like "OP" for Dominicans?
11:51 am
Vicuna

When the convent tries to take over the diner, the waiters yell "Nu7!"
11:51 am
Haz1558

No, a sister like Maria in Sound of Music?
11:51 am
sprite

no, like a lady who wears a habit and spends her life being married to Jesus.
11:51 am

11:52 am

12:02 pm
Vicuna

I was hoping "edna" would mean an elderly "etna."
12:02 pm
gwenski

I tend to lurk only while on lunch hour at work. If I'm playing at home, I'm much more likely to speak up.
12:02 pm

12:05 pm
sprite

this dutch firm has been at it for 2 years now to make a new pudding each month. This month's is pancake pudding with melasse! Was our dessert today and delish!
12:05 pm
sprite

oh WOW stid, some project!
12:05 pm
stidmama

hm. sounds nice -- melasse= molasses? or syrup?
12:05 pm
Vicuna

By pudding do you mean dessert in general, or specifically gelled creamy thing?
12:06 pm
stidmama

yes, and there are sounds that simply don't exist in European languages, so a bit of a challenge
12:06 pm
sprite

errr... not gelled. Creamy yes.
12:06 pm
sprite

let me check molasses and melasse...
12:07 pm
sprite

molasses it is, stid
12:07 pm
stidmama

I just love cognates! thanks sprite
12:08 pm
xuzy

lol @ loving cognates
12:09 pm
sprite

one has to, when loving babble, LOL
12:09 pm
stidmama

not many cognates in Whulshootseed -- 'al'al means "cedar board house", there is a glottal stop before the a sounds. the other words I know are "hi there" and "bye" (O-chawH and Hoy!)
12:09 pm
sprite

I think I can do Hoy
12:09 pm
Vicuna

"Hoy" qualifies as a faux ami!
12:11 pm
stidmama

of course, there are actual linguistic symbols for the sounds, I am trying to approximate the sounds with a standard keyboard... but many of the recognizable letters do have the usual sounds. fortunately. there is a funny "crossed lamba" symbol that resembles the Welsh "ll"
12:12 pm
stidmama

okay, end of lesson. the AA 5/10 is NOT being cooperative. help please?
12:12 pm

ah, isn't this wunderbar... I have won a million dollars in the lotto Rheinland-Pfalz! And I did not even play :)

12:19 pm

no mammal... fish!
12:19 pm
xuzy

12:20 pm
Atalante

12:20 pm
Vicuna

Ata, where are you when we need you?
12:20 pm
Vicuna

Ah, there you are!
12:20 pm
sprite

the ocean type is a fish... the human type is mammal
12:21 pm
Atalante

pisces: chondrichthyes: big huge jaws fish. aka Carcharodon
12:21 pm
Vicuna

Good point sprite. I'll grant you that!
12:21 pm
sprite

Couldn't resist...

ne5.12 sounds like it would come straight out of Foxworthy's Redneck Dictionary
2:43 pm
Jacula

ne5/12 is more of a poetic use of the word.

2:44 pm

"thar" should be a word... like "thar she blows!"

I think "warnut" should be a word
2:47 pm
redshoes

can you use that in a sentence, toad?
2:47 pm
Jacula

As opposed to 'walnut'?
2:47 pm
redshoes

is that like, "you don't like chocolate warnut?"
2:47 pm
toadandtoadette

My husband was a "warnut" before joining the army.
2:48 pm
Jacula

Ah! Yes,
2:48 pm
redshoes

ahhhhh... ok, that makes more sense.
2:48 pm
redshoes

oops... that was supposed to have two question marks. "You don't like chocolate? warnut?!?"

I'd better go and get those loaves into the oven. Might BBL. Happy Babbling. Toad - an4 = picnic pet + vowel. an5 = same but with a 'sun god' ending (consonant before the last vowel).
2:54 pm
Jacula

No need of the clues then. LOL. Well done, Toad. TTFN.
