A cul-de-sac or close is a dead-end street with only one inlet/outlet.

Cul-de-sac literally means "bottom of a bag" in French and Catalan. Despite seeming to be a borrowed French phrase, the expression cul-de-sac originated in England during the period when French was spoken by the English aristocracy

The name Christopher was coined by combining the Greek khristos, the anointed (a translation of the Hebrew mashiah, messiah), and pherein, to bear. The St. Christopher of legend was a giant who helped travellers by carrying them across rivers.

2:07 am

that i know they do fran, as a friend w/7 acres has two to allow for parties, and the dogs keep the kids coralled in the back yard. They naturally corrall, which is useful.
2:09 am

i have no experience with indoor pets myself, but i pay close attention when i'm watching dog shows, you pick up lots of useful information. :-)

yes, it's gotten harder as he's getting better, as the swelling has gone down, so he can clamp his mouth again. Good that he's healing, though.

we used to do so because we wanted to support the owner of the site!

if you want to try it, all you have to do is write lickety an email (addy is on the help page you are using right now). And install IE of course, lol.
4:53 am
dcseain

actually, blue, it pulls up IE on my box, even though Firefox is default, but it makes the browser invisible, as it's an embedded app.
4:53 am

IE is integral to Win98 and later, except in Europe. So, even if you're not using IE, it's on your machine. Babble Expert is an embedded app, meaning an application that runs in a browser. Lickety, being skilled, makes so you don't know it's IE.

6:38 am

exactly. If I want his support, all I have to do is say it is Jom's birthday and I am having a bad time with it, and he will be there for me. It is a very female thing to sit quiet and wait for the man to come forward himself, and feeling that if she needs to remind him, she doesn't want his support anyway.

montreal: if that is what you can do, it is worth a thousand consolations sometimes. Just letting feelings be there, acknowledge them and not try to uplift them can work miracles.

I've done my grocery shopping, put it away, helped with a charity collection and watched people beavering about. I need some rest and relaxation.
9:37 am
Atalante

you sure do!
9:37 am
hurshy

beavering? is that like faffing?
9:38 am
Haz1558

No! Faffing is purposeless, beavering is the opposite.
9:38 am
Atalante

beavering is much more indurtious
9:38 am
Atalante

industrious even LOL
9:38 am
Haz1558

Is beavering not a recognised verb in US?
9:38 am
hurshy

ah, i see.
9:38 am
Atalante

thats amusing. cos you have beavers and we don't
9:38 am
hurshy

not that i'm aware of. we have a... um... less than nice connotation for the word beaver.
9:39 am
hurshy

if you don't have beavers why are they in narnia?
9:39 am
Haz1558

Anything with a double vowel or consonant is slightly lazier - faff, pootle, rootling.
9:39 am
Atalante

we dont tend to have fauns or evil queens either
9:40 am
Haz1558

And now I'll start to think of all the exceptions to the rule that I've arbitrarily made up.
9:40 am
hurshy

not true, you have had the occasional evil queen, haven't you?
9:40 am
Atalante

we do, however, have turkish delight
9:40 am
Atalante

no, I think all our queens have been fairly nice. At least compared to the kings
9:40 am
hurshy

but beavers are more ordinary than fauns.

9:42 am

Did we kill them to make hats for soldiers. Atalante?
9:42 am
hurshy

me thinks the lady doth protest too much
9:42 am
Atalante

oh myabe we did. they became extinct in the 16th century
9:43 am
hurshy

i knew it!!
9:43 am
Atalante

The exact date of the beaver's disappearance from Scotland is unknown, but it was certainly still present in the 12th century, when excise duty was collected on the export of its pelt. Written records indicate that it may have survived in small numbers at a few locations until the 16th century.
9:43 am
FMitch

The beaver was hunted almost to extinction for its fur and the pain-relieving properties of its anal gland secretions. 6 European beavers weree released into the wild in 2005.
9:43 am
Haz1558

Aha - the authority arrives.
9:43 am
Atalante

sorry, I thought it was one of those critters that never made it across here

Is the spaniel being fattened deliberately?
9:53 am
hurshy

good heavens, what happened in france in the 70's? was it like elsewhere? i can't picture that.
9:53 am

Horreur!
9:53 am

I LOVE that episode! LOL

if he could just stop THAT, that would be something.

We'd need tractors because health and safety rules would forbid us hurting our backs.
10:17 am
Atalante

yup you're meant to lie down on your back if you get into difficultires
10:17 am
hurshy

i tried to get my family into man vs. wild at thanksgiving time but my sister couldn't handle the eating sheep eyeballs bit.
10:18 am
Haz1558

I suppose lying down on your front would be counter-productive. You couldn't shout for help just so well.
10:18 am
hurshy

bear went on his front, so that he could then crawl out
10:19 am
Atalante

OK. This canoeist guy who vanished. He wanted to see his sons so flew back to England and handed himself in. Why not just send them tickets out to Panama????
10:19 am
MLFAN17

ca 36 and ca 50 please
10:19 am
Haz1558

Was Bear Gryll not found out - sleeps in five star hotels at night.
10:19 am
hurshy

maybe his sons didn't care to see him, ata?
10:20 am
hurshy

he deserves it after the stuff he does, haz.
10:20 am
Haz1558

The whole story is incredible, Atalante. He had been living in England with his wife for years before going to Panama. They''ve been terribly deceitful.
10:20 am
BabbleRabble

ca 7 --- hats and skin browning; pl
10:20 am
Haz1558

Yes, but he sleeps in these hotels when he's supposed to be roughing it. So the rumour goes, I know nothing, though, unlike Manuel, it's not because I'm from Barcelona.
10:21 am

hurshy me too i found a few by accident
10:21 am
hurshy

nasty rumours spread by the jealous, i'd say.
10:22 am
Haz1558

I'm not sure where these five star hotels are in the midst of nowhere.
10:22 am
hurshy

they would have to chopper him in and out.
10:22 am
BabbleRabble

this grid is much too short and must to unchallenging
10:23 am
Haz1558

Well, I suppose it's possible. After the case of the disappearing and reappearing canoeist, anything's possible.
10:23 am
Deeha

Just come in on the middle of this Haz what made me laugh was that he came home from Panama because he was ired of pretending he was gay????!!!
10:23 am
Atalante

yes really! the whole story is something you'd think unbelievable in a story
10:24 am
Haz1558

Oh, I hadn't heard that twist to the story. FMItch - have you done anything about the film rights?
10:24 am
hurshy

brabble, did you use the list? if you think a grid is going to be too short you can always go without.
10:24 am
MLFAN17

phae which direction. i got the first part of it 3 letters or 4 though to see if i can go the right direction for that word or not lol?
10:24 am

10:24 am
FMitch

Been busy negotiation Haz, been busy!
10:24 am
hurshy

i want to come back from panama because i'm tired of pretending to be gay!
10:25 am
Haz1558

Excellent, FMitch. I should start working on a script, shouldn't I?
10:25 am

mlf, pluralize what you wear on your head, then add what the sun does to your skin
10:25 am

10:26 am
FMitch

Oh deffo :) and don't forget the cameo role for the tenrec
10:26 am
Atalante

I think our fav cake critic should have a cameo
10:27 am
Haz1558

If we have the tenrec, I suppose we'll have to have a disclaimer that no tenrecs were hurt in the filming of this piece.
10:27 am
FMitch

ROFL
10:28 am
Haz1558

I think you're right, Atalante. You can't have a cake without a critic.
10:28 am
FMitch

Oh BTW MrTenrec does not want to be associated with any of the cutsey wootsey scenes in the petshop prior to the "deed"
10:28 am
Atalante

we could have a stuffed tenrec to avoid animal rights
10:28 am
Atalante

that just looks very very very realistic
10:28 am
BabbleRabble

I violate generalities as a general rule
10:28 am
Atalante

and now Spangle can hold up an injured paw to look even more cute!
10:29 am
FMitch

Starts to sharpen the red pencil again ...
10:29 am
Haz1558

Could the tenrec have caused the injury? A tough, streetwise tenrec?
10:29 am
Atalante

quite possibly, I would think
10:30 am
FMitch

With his punk hairstype, see what you can come up with.
10:30 am
hurshy

i don't usually have this much trouble with a's... hmmm
10:30 am
hurshy

ooh there's one!
10:30 am
hurshy

there's another!
10:30 am
Haz1558

Okay, so a tenrec, a cake, a cake critic.
10:31 am
Atalante

sounds good
10:31 am
FMitch

I can see the oscars now!!
10:31 am
hurshy

what is a tenrec anyway? and why is there cake, i think i missed something
10:31 am

10:32 am

this reminds me of mr. roger's "operas" ... sweaters, bubbles, wind...
10:32 am
FMitch

hurshy look at my flikr pics for the spikey hedgehog from Madagasgar
10:32 am
Haz1558

The tenrec is the Madagascar hedgehog, the cake is to be used in the film script as a homage to Some Like it Hot, and you can't have a cake without a critic.
10:32 am
hurshy

why can't you have a cake without a critic?
10:33 am
Uneaixoise

fmitch, I saw that and wondered what in the world it was! LOL
10:33 am
hurshy

spiky hedgehog = tenrec *inserts into memory*
10:33 am
BabbleRabble

cause it would ruin the story line
10:33 am
FMitch

Isn't he great Uni! only found in Madagasgar
10:33 am
Haz1558

We were having a little brainstorm the other day about the perfect murder, hurshy. And a cake without a critic is just..... wrong.
10:33 am
Uneaixoise

he's amazing! LOL
10:34 am
FMitch

like bread without botter or babble without rabble. just unthinkable!
10:34 am
hurshy

roald dahl already wrote the perfect murder. only in that case, it was a leg of lamb.
10:34 am
Haz1558

And the punky hedgehog has a variant spelling - tanrec, but they come from the dodgy side of the family.

10:50 am
Haz1558

It's okay, the medics say I'll recover eventually.
10:50 am

you should tell a person if you're going to hold your breath!
10:51 am
Haz1558

I should, shouldn't I?
10:51 am
FMitch

Haz did you get The Mail today, free DVD Christmas Carol, am watching it on the PC, not a bad version of the tale.
10:52 am

Parsnip and apple.

10:56 am

FMitch

hurshy you will love all of it
10:57 am
Dorens

I love pavlova.. don't know about bushmill sauce tho
10:57 am
Haz1558

Pavlova is basically a meringue mixture with the addition of cornflour and vinegar - it does something in the cooking to make a crisp outside and a marshmallow inside - that's topped with cream and fruit.
10:57 am
Dorens

raspberries?
10:57 am
Haz1558

Bushmills sauce is a creamy sauce made with Bushmills whiskey (from up the road)
10:58 am
