2:51 am
dcseain

2:51 am
sprite

I just mixed milk, floor and eggs, put the stove on, a little butter in the pan and off I go! Anyone who wants a pancake can come to the sin bin.

I am closing in on the finish... but slowly!

Good for you. except for the slowly part. 99's not that many tho. {{grin}}

that's true, moon, n00bs are always welcome :)
3:22 am
moonwoof

wb, dc

ge4/6 is the japanese word. When software is still in testing phase, it is called b***.
3:22 am
sprite

welcome back, dc!
3:22 am
moonwoof

I hope so. I paid good money to be Fresh =D
3:22 am
dcseain

oh, is that the Japanes slippers, sprite?
3:23 am
dcseain

you twin cities or elsewher, if i may ask, moon?
3:23 am
sprite

it is, dc. Plural or singular, same word, but you know that already
3:23 am
moonwoof

Am right now. Bloomington to be precise. But I travel a lot.
3:24 am
sprite

I don't think anybody here has ever called a new player nOOb, do you, dc?
3:24 am
dcseain

neat. My dad thought St Paul was the bomb.
3:24 am
moonwoof

besides dc? LOL
3:24 am
dcseain

no, not that i've seen, sprite
3:24 am
moonwoof

I enjoy it, myself. Did he visit, work or live here?
3:25 am
dcseain

SF and St Paul were my father's favorite cities to visit other than here. Never been to either, so i have no opinion.
3:25 am
sprite

grin, not even dc. Though he can tease as well as I can.
3:25 am
dcseain

Visit, when prez candidates were on the campaign trail - he was Secret Service
3:25 am
dcseain

i have a sibling, teasing comes naturally.
3:26 am
sprite

hehehe, oh yes!
3:26 am
dcseain

choc chip cookies in the grid today. :)
3:26 am
moonwoof

That's very cool, actually. Must have been interesting, at least. And MN in general is pretty easy going, I bet it was for him, too
3:26 am
dcseain

yeah, esp since he grew up east of columbus, OH
3:26 am
sprite

ah, that is where they went. Searched the whole sin bin for them, dc.
3:27 am
moonwoof

I get very easily distracted by mention of chocolate. Like I need help getting distracted =P
3:27 am
dcseain

oh, Sprite, chips ah4 is a brand of choc chip cookies here.
3:27 am
sprite

that is no problem. Chocolate rules the world. We always give it priority.
3:28 am
sprite

lol, I did not know that, dc! I took it for a ship word. Ship ah4!
3:28 am
moonwoof

do you travel much? If so, there are several cool things here for someone who enjoyed Spain.
3:28 am
dcseain

it is a ship word, they used a ship campaign in their original tele ads here
3:28 am
KatieMcG

morning everyone :-)
3:29 am
sprite

yay, so I wasn't that far off track with that word. I like that ;)
3:29 am
dcseain

i'm planning some weekend trips, i've every other weekend off. On mmy list right now are: Portland, OR, SF, Amsterdam, London, and Paris.
3:29 am
moonwoof

For instance, the International Festival is fun. Dancing, music, food. Huge.
3:29 am
dcseain

Madrid, not Paris. I go to Paris, VA all the time :">
3:29 am
sprite

and in Amsterdam dc won't have much time to play tourist. He has family and babble friends to meet!
3:29 am
dcseain

when is that, moon?
3:30 am
dcseain

though i want to go to Robodock sometime, sprite
3:30 am
moonwoof

SanFran is also very cool. The festival is sometime in the spring. We don't go out much in the winter.
3:30 am
sprite

you should, dc. I am just teasing, you will go and do whatever you like and I will not claim, LOL.
3:31 am
moonwoof

I'll see if I can find a site for it. Hold on.
3:32 am
dcseain

visiting the people is at the top of my list, Sprite. People are what makes the trip - both the planned, and the random, encounters :D
3:32 am
KatieMcG

I'm going to London on Thursday but I never see anything as I get the train down, tube to the meeting, have meeting, tube back and get the train back. One day I have promised myself a full day playing tourist (just not in December as it is too busy!)
3:32 am
sprite

:D I quite agree!
3:33 am
dcseain

indeed so, katie! December is crowded most any city.
3:33 am
moonwoof

Besides, the weather's lousy for touring in London in decmeber.
3:33 am
dcseain

i'd also like to see an old friend in Leicester sometime. I've friends in Cambridge, too.
3:33 am
sprite

argh... so I cannot say in6 nor ce7 today. How am I to express my being convinced of things today :(
3:33 am
dcseain

ty for the ce7, sprite!
3:34 am
sprite

yw dc, lol
3:34 am
KatieMcG

I don't mind the weather, it rained for three weeks when I was in Vancouver at Christmas a couple of years ago, but the crowds of shoppers can be too much for me :-)
3:34 am
dcseain

quite so, i agree, with you... are some suggestions, sprite
3:34 am
sprite

same here, katie, I ha4 crowds.
3:34 am
sprite

thanks dc!
3:34 am
moonwoof

Understandable. But it's hard to look at the architecture when the rain's falling in your eyes...
3:34 am
KatieMcG

Thanks for both sprite :-)
3:35 am
dcseain

Well, it rains in temperate rainforest, just above Vancouver to almost Northern California, it rains.
3:35 am
moonwoof

Alot.
3:35 am
sprite

my hubby always wears a cowboy-like hat, the rim really helps with that, woof
3:35 am
moonwoof

True, it does. But it's hardly optimal.
3:35 am
dcseain

yes, wide brims are your friend in rain.
3:36 am
KatieMcG

I'm a surveyor so I'm use to looking at buildings in the rain, I guess you just get use to it.
3:36 am
dcseain

i have a woolen cape i use in rain sometimes. keeps me warm, even if wet.
3:36 am
moonwoof

I should know. We make them.
3:36 am
dcseain

oh, neat, katie! surveying always seemed like fun to me.
3:36 am
moonwoof

Very nice ones, if I do say so.
3:36 am
sprite

oh lovely! My hubby says Akubra is THE brand. Is it?
3:36 am
KatieMcG

We did do a field trip to Scotland and I though I was actually going to drown. We were out for a walking tour of masterplanned areas for 5 hours in the rain. It took days to get dry :-)
3:37 am
moonwoof

I used to make capes... I got out of it to do my own stuff.
3:37 am
KatieMcG

I'm lucky dc I work in regeneration so there are fantastic projects to be done and I get paid for it :-)
3:37 am
sprite

lol katie! When my love and I started dating, it always poured. And our first outings were canoeing and camping out, lol.
3:37 am
moonwoof

actually, I've never tried Akubra. I've fixed them, and they are nice, but I like ours better.
3:37 am
lynxxx

the Akubra is Australian Sprite
3:37 am
sprite

which is your brand, woof?
3:38 am
dcseain

3 years ago, i went camping the 2nd weekend in October, it rained from DC to New England, and the campsite we waded through to get to the dining hall. we were sopping wet until the very last night, when it cleared so we could have our fire circle, which we were canoeing in the day before.
3:38 am
sprite

I know, lynxxx
3:38 am
KatieMcG

So next time it rains we all have happy memories :-)
3:38 am
moonwoof

Well, we're not That big. I don't know that i would call us a Brand... But I work with New Pterodactyl Leather.
3:39 am

DC you burn the canoe?
3:39 am
KatieMcG

Hi herin
3:39 am
dcseain

evening, lady!
3:39 am
lynxxx

Hi Infernal
3:39 am
moonwoof

Comparitively Akubra is the closest thing I've seen to ours, but I don't like lining leather hats. It seems wasteful and unnecessary.
3:39 am
dcseain

no, the circle was flooded so we boated through the circle in the canoe. we burn logs
3:39 am
moonwoof

I wonder what you'll find...
3:40 am
moonwoof

evening infernal
3:40 am
lynxxx

lol, OK. I thought that would have been a weird custom
3:40 am
sprite

only lamenting people who would love to see a website, lol
3:40 am
dcseain

moon, you sell at MN renfaire?
3:40 am
moonwoof

I've never thought to look and see if we're even anywhere online LOL
3:40 am
moonwoof

Yup.
3:40 am
dcseain

you seem to have quite the following in the renny/scadian crowd
3:41 am
sprite

hi lady
3:41 am
moonwoof

I try.
3:41 am
moonwoof

It's easier to do business with a good rep, I've found.
3:41 am
KatieMcG

working at home today so I'd better go and do some! Be popping in and out for most of the day before I have to go to my evening meeting :-)
3:41 am
dcseain

cool, i'll have to ask around. i bet i know someone with some of your product then.
3:41 am
dcseain

enjoy, katie, sounds like relaxing day.
3:41 am
moonwoof

If you do fairs at all, probably.
3:42 am
dcseain

half my friends are rennies and/or scadians :)
3:42 am
sprite

too bad, I am sure my husband would love to see your hats and might even prefer them to Akubra. He does not like the lining either. But it seems you are a little too far a way for a random visit, lol.
3:42 am
moonwoof

I used to make Halfmoons cloaks. Now I do my leathers for myself.
3:42 am
dcseain

i know 2/3 of the people who work, act and perform and MD renfaire
3:42 am
moonwoof

I was guessing, since you whipped out the word "scadian" LOL
3:42 am
sprite

very disciplinary of you, katie! GOod luck
3:43 am
moonwoof

Well crap. Then yes, you know people who have my stuff.
3:43 am
herinfernallady

Hi i was watching
3:43 am
dcseain

oh, sorry, i forget that that's jargon; i saw renfaire, and figured you'd know the word. :">
3:43 am
moonwoof

I have a whole contingent of them come down and find me in NC after MD ends.
3:43 am
dcseain

you sell at MD?
3:43 am
moonwoof

Oh I did, huny. I've been working at fair for over a decade now.
3:44 am
sprite

dc, if you ever get to a shoppe of woof, would you take pics and post them on flickr for me? Of the hats, I mean :)
3:44 am
dcseain

oh, clueless me. I'll look for you this year :) Which shop/street do you sell on?
3:44 am
moonwoof

Nope. I have friends who do MD, but we don't ourselves. They come down to find me, tho.
3:44 am
dcseain

absolutely, Sprite!
3:44 am
sprite

thanks! I have a feeling it would make my love extremely happy!
3:45 am
moonwoof

Actually Sprite I can do that in a month or two, if you'd like. We'll be in AZ in February. I can do it then.
3:45 am
moonwoof

I take it you visit MD then, dc?
3:45 am
sprite

woof, if you would, I'd be really grateful!
3:46 am
herinfernallady

DC i am reading a werewolf book at the MOment Kitty goes to washington. Made me think of where you are in the world
3:46 am
dcseain

of course, moon, it's only an hour from my house. :)
3:46 am
dcseain

well, 90min with traffic
3:46 am
moonwoof

Not a problem. I don't have much exprerience shipping overseas or anything, but I'm sure I can manage pictures =)
3:46 am
dcseain

never heard of it, lady. any good?
3:47 am
moonwoof

I had no idea. I've only really been "online" for what... a couple of weeks now?
3:47 am
sprite

usually the shipping costs are high, but for a hat he really loves, I am sure we are willing to pay them, woof!
3:47 am
moonwoof

But I think I'm getting the hang of it.
3:47 am
herinfernallady

Yes. It starts with Kitty and the midnight hour. Then Kitty goes to washington. She is a werewolf and has to front a Senator comity to explain the supernatural
3:47 am
dcseain

even if you'd been online forever, you'd have know reason to know the proximity of Reston, VA to Crownsville, MD :D
3:48 am
dcseain

hah! sounds hilarious, lady!
3:48 am
moonwoof

True, dc, but I didn't even know that's where you were =P
3:48 am
sprite

I am totally useless when it comes to geography. I ask people's whereabouts shamelessly over and over again :)
3:48 am
herinfernallady

Its pretty good. Is going into were creatures at the moment
3:48 am
sprite

oh wow lady, sounds like fun
3:49 am
dcseain

oh, right, i don't list my town in my profile, just that i'm in Northern VA.
3:49 am
moonwoof

I'm actually pretty good at the geography, but I have to know Where before I can place it. I've driven thru most of the Continental US.
3:49 am
moonwoof

I didn't even think to look for a profile, honestly. Most people wouldn't list it. Would they?
3:50 am
dcseain

i have a goal to visit MO, so that' ill've been in a circle around KY, like i have with VT.
3:50 am
dcseain

most do, actually, moon.
3:50 am
sprite

I am learning more geography from helping my kids study than I ever learned from lessons, grin
3:50 am
moonwoof

And Sprite compared to most people we're really not that expensive.
3:50 am
herinfernallady

The author is Carrie Vaughn my other most fav author of simalar topic is Kelley Armstrong The other world series
3:50 am
dcseain

that makes sense, sprite, i'm sure the same was true for my mother, not least for all of Africa having changed since she was in shcool.
3:50 am
moonwoof

Really? Even in this day and age of paranoia? I'm surprised.
3:51 am
dcseain

my town is in my LJ and my Facebook. A few other places. I'm one of 125,000 people in it, so not easy to track down.
3:51 am
sprite

will be looking forward to the pics then, woof!
3:51 am
moonwoof

the KS fair is cute. If you like MD, tho, it may be a little small for you.
3:52 am
dcseain

i've friend who travels to them i'll ask her about KS
3:52 am
sprite

people can be funny in that way. Some have a very easy password they use for everything and never change, but they go bananas when someone asks which country they live in.
3:52 am
dcseain

i should make up a table of state abbreviations for the non-north americans :)
3:52 am
moonwoof

I'll write myself a note, Sprite. In the mean time you should send me your email address.
3:52 am
dcseain

good point, sprite
3:53 am
sprite

I think I have a link somewhere to a site like that, dc, lol. I do have to look up abbrevs for states often.
3:53 am
sprite

it is in my profile, woof. Just leave out all spaces.
3:53 am
moonwoof

Oh crap. I totally just realized. I'm sorry Sprite. I'm so used to writing addresses for shipping I didn't even think.
3:54 am
moonwoof

Ok. I'll grab that, there then. Ty
3:54 am
sprite

lol, np at all. And I will send you my snail mail addy if we are going to buy one of your hats!
3:55 am

At least you're published. That's good for you.
3:57 am

lady, I am seriously considering doing it myself. Ata promised to read my translations and correct them into real english for me. And I think it might be possible someone in the babble network knows a way to get them published in UK or Us.

Actually. I'd like to read something in English, first, but I would.
3:57 am
dcseain

sounds like a most excellent plan, sprite!
3:58 am
moonwoof

Don't pass that around.
3:59 am
sprite

at least in US and UK they are not scared of lots of pages. Quite a few publishers in the netherlands, also big ones, were very interested in the book but were afraid to publish something that big from a new writer.
3:59 am
sprite

there is one chapter translated on the english part of the site, woof.
3:59 am
dcseain

how big, if i may ask?
4:00 am
sprite

a little under 800 pages for each of them, dc.

woof: don't pass what around?
4:00 am
dcseain

that is quite large, but well w/in bounds for fantasy
4:00 am
moonwoof

Ok Dc. On the International Festival I'm having some trouble, since I can't remember exactly what the hell it's called. But I'll find it.
4:01 am
moonwoof

I'll email you, soon, Sprite.
4:01 am
dcseain

all good, moon. :)
4:01 am
sprite

and for people who like words, please go see the acknowledgement page... my dear friend Rick helped me invent the correct translation for one word and it was wonderful.
4:01 am
Xanika

hi
4:01 am
moonwoof

But in the US they also will split a book, if there's a good place to do it... They like selling more copies. So that might be a possibility.
4:01 am

Sprite you could run paragraphs through um. Bablefish maybe
4:01 am

Morning Xan
4:02 am
dcseain

hi, xanika!
4:02 am
sprite

exactly, dc (on the size). The only complaint I ever got from readers was that is was wayyy too small, lol.
4:02 am
dcseain

i use google translate, then correct for grammar.
4:02 am
herinfernallady

Hi Sprite
4:02 am
sprite

lady, get serious :) :)
babelfish makes total nonsense out of proze. And I will never settle for anything but a translation that reads as native english.
4:03 am
herinfernallady

Ok i didn't know i was thinking program wise not construction of words
4:03 am
dcseain

it's cute the mistakes it makes between english and spansish/portuguese or vice-versa.
4:04 am
dcseain

did i tell yall that i'm taking Arabic in the Spring?
4:04 am
dcseain

class starts 14 Jan
4:04 am
sprite

I can translate pretty well, and with someone backing me up and telling me where I sound stilted, I think it can be done. I need someone to tell me: "We just don't say it like that."
4:04 am
herinfernallady

yah zDc
4:04 am
herinfernallady

HI Xankia
4:04 am

oh wow dc, that is wonderful! Only talking or also writing?
4:04 am

4:05 am
sprite

hey Xanika
4:05 am
dcseain

whole package, sprite
4:05 am
sprite

I hope so, dc, I really hope so! Would be lovely to have it translated :D
4:05 am
sprite

that is great, dc. You will have so much fun learning another language :)
4:06 am
dcseain

yeah i will :D hopefully i'll learn to make sense of the alphabet.
4:06 am
dcseain

though Cyrillic seemed unsurmountable once upon a day, too.
4:06 am
sprite

always an extra challenge, a different alphabet to learn with the language. But you will manage, as you did all those other languages :)
4:07 am
dcseain

yeah, i learned to write Chinese, i can conquer Arabic. :D
4:08 am
sprite

that is a fact. Chinese is chars only, even more complicated than Japanese. Arabic will seem easy in comparison.
4:08 am
dcseain

imxala, sprite
4:08 am
Frances

Morning all.

Just reading the chat - my eldest brother learned to write Arabic many years ago. He is an artist and thought it would help with his work. But then he also learned to speak Welsh when he was evacuated to Wales during the war.
4:09 am
herinfernallady

Hi Frances
4:09 am
moonwoof

Sprite, do you have an editor or agent?
4:09 am

4:35 am

I don't think I ever watch a single episode of that show from start to finish. Got me bored too soon. Did I give up too easily on it?

4:36 am
moonwoof

Ok. Good. Then i can try Dr. Who.
4:36 am
moonwoof

Noone will do as well as Tom Baker, but I guess I'll see.
4:36 am
dcseain

Balttlestar is VERY well acted, but so slow that i wander off when i've tried to watch it. I think 2 episodes ever held my attention before i gave up.
4:37 am

i concur, moon, i like Tom also.

i do wish i'd thought to ask great-grandma to teach me to tat when i was younger.
4:50 am

mohair is even worse if you cannot handle wool. I know, Ata, I cannot wear any wool at all, so I could probably find the good yarns for you, lol.

4:52 am
dcseain

i know a good number of men who knit. What gets looks on the Metro here are the men with the drop-spindles. LOL
4:52 am

i guess so. I have a lady from DC who come down to buy corsets from me every year. She's quite special, too, now that you mention it.
4:53 am

my son can knit. He wanted to learn and so I thought both him and his sister. They crotchet too. Son is knitting his own scarf now, in a good scarf stitch. All black though :)
4:53 am

i learned to knit last year.. i thought i wanted a wide scarf and well i made too wide.. i still never finished lol
4:53 am

Lace was the worst they tried to get me to make, tho. It sucked. the thread was so fine I kept breaking it.
4:53 am
Frances

I have to ask - what are drop spindles?
4:53 am
dcseain

sprite, i'll have to send you the pattern for the scarf with the very, very subtle skulls in it, i bet he'd love it!
4:54 am
carra

and i only learned one stictch b/c my nonie was going to teach me another once i finished the scarf
4:54 am
dcseain

drop spindles are used for spinning fibre into thread.
4:54 am
sprite

carra: throw it away and start over all anew. Most important things for beginners is to ke4 having fun at it.
4:54 am

Thank you dc.

4:56 am

The only embroidery is on the label on the back. I'm making an envelope out of cotton and doing a message on another piece of cotton (the paper) to put in the envelope. I will then sew the envelope to the back of the quilt and join the message with thread so that when it is taken out of the envelope it will not get lost.

Hi everyone! MrP., I order from amazon uk (I'm in Germany) a lot and most of the DVD's are "region 2". Do you know what region Australia is in? I know the U.S. is region 1.
5:44 am
Frances

Australioa is region 4
5:44 am
mrpresident

we are definitely not region 1
5:44 am
mrpresident

I do hope region 2 works in australia then! :)
5:45 am
Marmar

Some I have ordered are "all regions"...why can't they all be like that?! I hope it works out for you.
5:45 am
mrpresident

so do I marmar... I can't get it from anywhere else!
5:46 am
Frances

Somew DVDs have 'region 0' which means they can be played worldwide. However, if they are made for PAL they can only be played on a PAL machine.
5:47 am
mrpresident

I do hope that they see my address and know that I require the region 0 dvd
5:48 am
Marmar

I love to order the old TV series from the states which are now on DVD's but they are all region1. Luckily, my husband's cousin here has an old cheap DVD player that plays all the different region DVD's that he basically gave us. (You can't buy those types of machines anymore here.) Maybe you can get one there is the need arises.
5:49 am
Frances

Mrp Annie said that you have sold your house. That is wonderful news. I hope you got what you wanted for it - such a beautiful house - I think you will be very sad to leave.
5:49 am

5:52 am
mrpresident

oh annie, it is my home... I love it!
It is sad to leave but new beginnings are very refreshing, so I have heard
5:53 am
Anniebrook

mrp...I know how you are feeling..have you found a new house yet?
5:53 am
Frances

I think I must have my invisible clothes on. Mrp isn't talking to me
5:54 am
Anniebrook

Frances, your quilt is quite beautiful
5:54 am
Frances

Think I'll go make tea.
5:54 am
mrpresident

Frances, it was a sale that had to be made, my house is beautiful!! It is so so comfortable and big and wonderful, but is it someone elses now
5:54 am
Frances

Thank you Annie. This one is a labour of love for my little treasure.
5:55 am
mrpresident

frances!!! I am replying to you all! promise!! I do apologise, my arm is being a bastard... it has tourette syndrome
5:55 am
Frances

I hope you find somewhere just as wonderful mrp.
5:56 am
mrpresident

We did get what we wanted, but we had to fight the estate agent... they were really pathetic
5:57 am
mrpresident

He kept on at us that we would only get what HE thought the house and land was worth, and he was only bringing people around with a 'certain' budget... come the day of the auction, and the offers were completely unacceptable, so I really got angry at him
5:58 am
Frances

Oh your arm! Last I saw was an x-ray pic that Lickety put up that seemed to show a break. Poor you......you are having so much pain. Good on you for sticking to what you wanted for the house and I am so pleased that you got it. Estate agents are a breed apart!!!
5:59 am
mrpresident

I told him in no uncertain terms that he was not to bring people here to the house that didn't have the money that we expected... told him I had my heels in firm, so did lickety... surprise, surprise!!! 4 days later, he sold the house for what we asked for.... which was $45,000 more than he expected
6:00 am
Anniebrook

mrp, good for you and lickety! glad you got what you wanted...it must be a very beautiful house
6:00 am
Frances

Brilliant!!!!!!
6:00 am
mrpresident

yes annie, I hope you saw it on the website that I posted in my bio
6:01 am
Anniebrook

mrp..no, I did not..sorry to have missed that
6:01 am
mrpresident

that is a break that hasn't healed frances... it is 5 months now! very annoying and painful
6:01 am
Anniebrook

mrp..sorry that you are in pain
6:03 am
bichon

sorry to interupt a serious conversation, but yoyo isn't a word in the dictionary?
6:03 am
Merk

Good morning and congrats on the house sale, mrp. That is a load of worry off your mind. You can focus on other things now.
6:03 am
Frances

I can imagine the pain (I think) mrp. Did they not originally talk of inserting a rod and would that have speeded up the healing of the break?
6:04 am
lynxxx

shoot MRP - is the simulator the thing you had for the months after the op ?
6:04 am
Anniebrook

hello merk and bichon---isnt yoyo hyphenated?
6:05 am
mrpresident

we did speak of it, but with the bone infection raging, a rod would have been an extra problem, and it wouldn't have stopped my arm breaking above or below the insertion point.
6:05 am
lynxxx

Hi Bichon - the general consenses is that it is hyphenated
6:05 am
mrpresident

Uniquity

Why haven't you got the grinch as your Seuss book Scarlet? :)
8:32 am
Scarlet

Yes, Aloy (*hug*... we had 74 degrees yesterday) and good day!! LOL, Uni.. top of the morning to you... I thought that you and Krista would scold me for being too obvious!! :-)
8:32 am
Aloyisius

8:32 am
Uniquity

Oh but Scarlet I have done so much this week I don't know if I'm coming or going. A little obviousness would ground me
8:33 am
Scarlet

Aloy, I know that there is a meaning for that, but I'm lost...
8:33 am
Scarlet

Uni, you have the most grounding "ground" in the world... your Babble community!
8:33 am
Uniquity

'Tis true...1.5 hours to exam! Tomorrow's my last, and I will have completed 9/9 papers and exams...
8:34 am
Aloyisius

very fond memories of reading Dr. Seuss's books to my children.. especially the alphabet book. B, baby bumblebee
8:34 am

There was a berensein bears/seuss book all about B that was big in my childhood.

Wow... then some freedom and the holiday season will help you unwind, Uni! Awwww, Aloy... now you get to read it to your beautiful Mia...

8:35 am
Uniquity

Mia? Granddaughter?
8:36 am
Aloyisius

yes, Uni... we waited a long time for her.. she is awesome!
8:36 am
Scarlet

There certainly are many right-there words in this grid... Aloy... my daughters call me "The Baby Whisperer"... just give them to Baba and they snuggle right in...
8:36 am
Uniquity

Mia is a beautiful name!
8:37 am
Aloyisius

beautiful, Scarlet.. i think there should be a baby whisperer show on radio and/or t.v. for new parents. I mean, there are shows for help with pets..

Sorry, Angel... all I have is a five... the motorcycle
8:39 am

8:44 am
Merk

I know 'eton' is a school, but isn't it also a tie? For all the odd words they do have, I thought surely they would accept that.
8:44 am

8:45 am

Frances

Anyone else find that the Lickety video doesn't open when you finish? Had the same problem all week.
8:45 am
Haz1558

Merk - the knot would be name after the school, in the same way that a Windsor knot is named after the place.
8:46 am
Scarlet

Frances, sometimes it won't show if the fireworks continue, so I click them off, and the video comes up...
8:46 am
Merk

someone tried yoyo earlier, but of course that is hypenated ... I don't know if the dictionary has changed, but it would not accept pogo at one time ... as in pogo stick. Someone said it was a brand name.

8:50 am
Merk

Congrats, Angel. And is there a sharable recipe for this infamous cake?
8:50 am
Atalante

do you know, I looked all over Faversham today for a new cake tin. Nothing. No airtight containers big enough. I'll have to hope the one I have is big enough!
8:51 am

apparently Jac put the recipes on babanon, merk
8:51 am

Not even the new lock tight ones? I have quite big ones.

Frances

Jaw dropping 'I'm single thingies'!
9:06 am
Atalante

oh you name it. the best was an inverted triangle plastic thing that the owners wanted to spread around the world as a symbol for "single" status. So ppl could wear one - discreetly and fashionably - when wanting to meet other singles as a subtle sign that men could come and talk to them
9:06 am
Atalante

our education system here is probably worse than yours (hazel and Frances) - a number of years back, the whole system was drastically changed to follow a Swiss method - afew years ago, Switzerland decided that their reform was not working,,, meanwhile, we carry on ??? crazy i tell you !!!
12:34 pm
Frances

I give up montreal. They keep pushing sex 'education' down the throats of younger and younger children (starting in primary school) and wonder why the kids try it for themselves. We have the largest teenage pregnancy rate in Europe and climbing!
12:34 pm
montreal13

here, they abandonned sex education ??? is that any better ??
12:35 pm
Deeha

Hear a joke the other day about if we try to make kids stay in school till they are 16 who is going to pick up their kids from playschool
12:37 pm
Frances

Not sure about that one. I can only say that when I was at school (millions of years ago) the only sex education we had was an embarrassed thirty minute talk by the biology teacher involving frogs and rabbits. We didn't have the pregnancy problems that we have now. Perhaps it was fear.
12:37 pm
Frances

Many a true word Deeha
12:38 pm
Frances

.....but they are trying to make them stay until 18 now. Why? If they don't want to be there they will have no interest in learning.
12:39 pm
Frances

........and by the way, the talk we had by the biology teacher was in the week that we finally left school.
12:39 pm
Atalante

I had *no* sex education at school LOL. Not very easy to teach in a convent school
12:40 pm
Uniquity

My hometown (which is relatively sma;ll) has the highest STD AND teen pregnancy rates in Canada. CANADA. It is insane
12:40 pm
Frances

It is very worrying/
12:41 pm
Deeha

when I did my GCE it involved the reproduction of the DAFFODIL!!!
12:41 pm
montreal13

no sex education here as well...of course, we're talking eons ago...
12:41 pm
BabbleRabble

How long were you in training to be a convent, Atalante?
12:41 pm
Frances

Rabbits and frogs I liken to no sex education.......after all, I am neither!
12:41 pm
montreal13

very sexy seeing those daffodils reproduce !!!...lol
12:41 pm
Uniquity

I went to junior high and high school with more pregnant girls than I count. Then they dropped out, but more girls kept getting pregnant
12:41 pm
Atalante

too long, br!
12:42 pm
Frances

.......and they call you flower or petal.
12:42 pm
montreal13

kids now are dropping out at 12 or even 10 years old...!!!
12:43 pm
Frances

Convent - none of this, none of that and none of the other!
12:43 pm
Atalante

but the convent school was still the best school I ever went to. Kind, caring
12:44 pm
Frances

I do hear Ata that convent schools offer just about the best education.
12:44 pm
fruittart

hi all. my mom didn't receive any info so she went overboard with me, but in my high school gym a girl was talking about kissing makes you pg so she was doing *everything else* but not letting him stick his tongue in her mouth. I squeeked -- the sperm aren't on his tongue! She didn't understand so I explained.
12:44 pm
Frances

LOL fruit
12:45 pm
Uniquity

Despite a lot of sex ed, while IN sex ed, i had two girls try to convince me that it was absolutely impossible to get pregnant on your period
12:45 pm
Frances

....or standing up
12:46 pm
Uniquity

Or in water
12:46 pm
Uniquity

Or on days that end with Y :)
12:46 pm
Atalante

i personally think teaching self-esteem and worth to young girls is more important than hours of sex education which will fly out of teh window the second a boy smiles at them if they need assurance
12:47 pm
fruittart

that 'splains so much! ;-)
12:47 pm
Frances

The list is endless. I would love to sit in on one of the so called lessons.
12:47 pm
Frances

Correct Ata.
12:47 pm
Uniquity

My class involved a LOT of pictures of STDs...Which was mostly just disgusting to me at 13 years old
12:48 pm
fruittart

so true, ata!
12:48 pm
montreal13

were trying to scare you Uni...
12:49 pm
Uniquity

I never learned anything about sex other than it would give you STDs or babies. Oh, and that boys will like you more if you jsut say no. Hard to take that message while you're being picked on by the boys in the class. If sex ed is such a great idea, i think it should be seperate. Special classes for boys and girls
12:50 pm
Frances

There is an old saying, what you never have you never miss. At that age, just say no.
12:50 pm
Atalante

mixed sex ed classes? oh the horror!!!!
12:50 pm
Uniquity

When the teacher says "Yeah, it feels great, BUT..." the message gets a little convoluted
12:50 pm
montreal13

"boys will like you more if you say no" - just about the lamest phrase i've heard on the subject - incredible !
12:51 pm
Aryn

any clues for the at?

when I hear of the evils of sex education, I am reminded of the debate over regulation of firearms: guns don't kill, people do.

true frances... but curiosity has a strong gravitational pull...

oh this brings back bad memories -- guys sniggering in the back of class. but they did pull us out separately for a discussion of 'feminine hygiene products'.

12:52 pm

curiousity does - but even back when I was a kid, there wasnt that sexuality in everyone's faces, and the curiousity wasn't really there
12:52 pm
Uniquity

I never got that talk...that would have been nice!
12:53 pm
Aryn

12:53 pm
Uniquity

I was 13, thought I understood what sex was but really really didn't. Sex ed confused the hell out of me...I was scared of everything (which is the point). And this was only 6-7 years ago
12:53 pm
Inge2

The problem is whether or not you teach sex ed, the sexuality is already there in their faces, from the media. It's unavoidable. Something has to be done to address the feelings and questions the media evoke.
12:54 pm
Frances

I agree Ata. Now you hear girls talking and all they can talk about is who they've had, where they had it, what they did and how many times. I just find it so embarrassing.
12:54 pm
montreal13

true Ata - but that was then and this is now - we are all inundated by sex images...
12:55 pm
Uniquity

I was a book kid...I didn't have the media images and movies my brothers now do. I had restricted tv times and PG movies...they have tv all day and very grown up movies (not LoriP, other family)
12:55 pm
Atalante

absolutely Inge
12:55 pm

I think the media have an awful lot to answer to.
