I have a dilemma today.... should i accept Invite A and take Walter to the mini-lake, where we have been before, and see about starting to teach him to swim, or should I accept Invite B and take him to the open-air pool, where we have not been before, and see about teaching him to swim?

what's the bottom of the lake like? if it's gooey Walter may say eewwww...
12:43 am
Just1Mar

actually he'll be torn apart between his friends ...her family...and us
12:43 am
Just1Mar

but I told him not to worry about us...
12:44 am
MonkeyGames

Probably will, that's a good point.... but it's farther and the bakfiets has had a blowout.... The lake has a sandy bottom. It's like a tiny little freshwater beach. But it will be MOBBED.
12:44 am
Jacula

I'd opt for A. monkey.
12:45 am

everything will work out just..then the ceremony will be over and you can all have a nice party

My motto for life is, a little of what you fancy does you good, too much of what you fancy may make you fat (or prone to certain cancers), but, you only have one life to live. Do you want to live to 103 when all your friends, all your kids and all of the family that ever bother to visit you are dead??

5:13 am

5:14 am
FMitch

You two are obsessed with that woman!
5:15 am
Haz1558

Not me. Ata's the one who reads magazines about her.
5:15 am
Haz1558

But guess what? She was barred from some posh polo event at SMith's Lawn.
5:15 am
Atalante

1 magazine. you read mag fronts every week!
5:15 am
Haz1558

She was incredibly upset, apparently.
5:15 am
FMitch

True and we have photographic evidence to substantiate it
5:15 am
caitlyn

I did feel sorry for her this weekend though when she wasnt allowed in to the polo event
5:15 am
Atalante

5:16 am

OK, thanks. Nothing comes OUT... poor kid. Now, teh doctor told me to use the decongestant for a week and then come back if he's still ill. But you, the package insert, and online resources say five days. I'm thinking maybe take him in on Friday, day 5, if he's not much better. As someone no doubt often overworked due to overconcerned moms like me, do you think I should do that or just wait through the weekend? That's if he's not significantly better.

MG---sinusitis is overtreated in the US, for sure--people get antibiotic treatment for the common cold. But if he is not better after 10-14 days he likely does have a treu bacterial sinusitis and thus feels awful.

6:01 am
MonkeyGames

So if i see even gradual improvement, though, he should just get better on his own, right? And would daycare be detrimental? He likes it there. I just don't want to make him worse by letting him be too active... that happened the day we took him to the zoo (Saturday).

6:18 am
MonkeyGames

As far as I know there's no plague outbreak here right now, but my friend was just redirected from the French campsite she was planning to use.
6:18 am
Scrabbler

If not better I would certainly prescribe antibiotics--a cold virus should be gone by 2 wks or so.
6:19 am
Scrabbler

Enjoy the day everyone!!

Bye Scrabbler.
6:19 am

OK, thanks again. I'll see how he is. He's crashed again today but is STILL better than before we got the nose spray.

6:21 am
crosshair

new mothers:) got to relax i know its hard.when our boy was young he had a bad cold for 2 solid weeks then it just blew away and he was climbing the walls the next day

6:22 am
MonkeyGames

HE hasn't... One of the neighbors was just in Ethiopia though. Not that I took that as a serious suggestion, for the record.
6:22 am
Atalante

lupus? *goes through Dr House's normal suggestions*
6:22 am
crosshair

if lupus,keep out of sun
6:23 am
Atalante

(trypanosomiasis does give headaches and fever, and owieness. and flake out sessions.) lol
6:23 am
bethn

6:23 am
crosshair

lets not forget rocky mtn spotted fever...
6:24 am
MonkeyGames

It's never lupus. Maybe it's neurocystocercosis.
6:24 am
crosshair

lol just trying to relax you a bit monkey:)
6:24 am
MonkeyGames

It'd be pretty hard to get RM fever here...
6:24 am
Atalante

it was lupus once!
6:24 am
MonkeyGames

How far can a tick swim?
6:25 am
crosshair

i heard a tick can live for weeks
6:25 am
Atalante

a long way, especially when carried on something else
6:25 am
MonkeyGames

True, it WAS lupus once.
6:25 am
Haz1558

If they do it in relays, ticks can cover vast distances.
6:26 am
crosshair

there is a illness you can get from having giant praying mantis bugs as a regular part of your diet.....
6:26 am
MonkeyGames

Well, I'm just going to stick to Scrabbler's advice which differes from the advice I got at the doctor here only in that she says not to use the spray for more than 5 days and they said 7.
6:26 am
MonkeyGames

Is there really? What?
6:26 am
crosshair

its all that purple blood i suppose...
6:26 am
MonkeyGames

Hmmmm...
6:27 am
crosshair

yes, sounds like scrabs is a wise doc
6:27 am
MonkeyGames

Can you get the same illness by eating more small ones?
6:27 am
MonkeyGames

I'm just hoping I don't have to miss more of my apprenticeship. This sure has been dragging on.
6:27 am

i assume so,ive never caught enough to find out
6:29 am

I'm a doctor too. No-one ever asks me stuff *sigh*
6:29 am

HOW can there be more to words????
6:30 am
MonkeyGames

Now, see, Ata, I did not know that. I'm sorry. I will commence mercilessly bugging you for a change now. Didn't mean to leave you out!
6:30 am

What did you make of the fossil they found in a rockery Ata?
6:30 am

Are you any particular KIND of doctor, so I know how to gear the pestering?
6:30 am

6:31 am
FMitch

LOL
6:31 am

Wouldn't that be a laugh. Someone finds a priceless fossil and some well-meaning artist drills holes and makes it into a sculpture.
6:31 am

ata? i think i have borneo jungle fungus:/
6:31 am

Put a preying mantiss on it, Cross.

It won't notice much after the brandy soaking.... For the record, I do actually like them very much an dwouldn't REALLY do that.
6:34 am
FMitch

Yup a forerunner of the haddock aparently was on TV yesterday
6:34 am
Atalante

really? wah! how come I didn't see that??!
6:34 am
crosshair

you soak praying mantis in brandy?
6:34 am
MonkeyGames

But really, Ata, what kind of doctor? Just curious.

Do they improve if you whirl them?
6:35 am
Haz1558

Was Ata out getting finger-prints done? What HAVEyou been up to now, Ata?
6:36 am
crosshair

naw,they just throw up from all that brandy
6:36 am
Atalante

whirling disease is very serious. it can kill millions
6:36 am

My uncle is a doctor of paleomagnetism and my aunt is a doctor of anthropological linguaistics...

6:36 am
MonkeyGames

Gary Scott.
6:36 am

moi? nothing of course!
6:36 am
MonkeyGames

Invented shielded rooms.
6:36 am
crosshair

so if i need a fast translation from punic to sanscrit they can help ata/
6:37 am
MonkeyGames

No, but if you want to revive a dead language my aunt's you, umm, man.
6:37 am
Haz1558

Is this the part where we boast about our relatives? You go first, Ata.
6:37 am
Atalante

shielded rooms?
6:38 am
crosshair

why would i want to revive a dead language? once i learned it,who would i chat with??? lol
6:38 am
MonkeyGames

The rooms that entirely cut off the Earth's magnetic field allowing more in-depth study, especially o ffossils.
6:38 am
Atalante

I never boast about my relatives!
6:38 am
Haz1558

So modest!
6:38 am
Atalante

oh gosh, I never fossil people needed that sort of thing!
6:38 am

My aunt helps American Indian tribes recover their languages.
6:38 am

No, of course you don't.
6:39 am
crosshair

would be just me and your momma i suppose
6:39 am
Atalante

how does that help looking at fossils?
6:39 am
MonkeyGames

Thanks to these rooms I have smoked weed outside the Earth's magnetic field. Sorry to say there was no difference.
6:40 am
crosshair

try smoking week is a sweedish sauna
6:40 am
FMitch

We could have an alternate babble grid made of deak languages, mind you with some of the words that come up here we probably already have it.
6:40 am
MonkeyGames

The magnetics of nearly anything revert to the location of magnetic North at the time the fossil (or rock, etc.) formed, making for better dating.
6:40 am
FMitch

*dead
6:40 am

not much difference either,but the company is nice;)
6:40 am

I'd pass out, cross. This I know.

all those tall blonde women...
6:41 am

oh right. I never realised that was a big part of paleo studies
6:41 am

ouch! wife just cuffed me upside the head! violence!
6:42 am
MonkeyGames

Have looked up whirling disease. Ata, are you an oceanographer? My grandfather's an oceanographer.
6:42 am
FMitch

lol wonder why cross ;)
6:42 am
crosshair

she has no sense of humor
6:42 am
Atalante

is he? wow, you have a clever family. and I don't think oceanographers would be very interested in whirling disease
6:42 am
FMitch

Is that the one that plays the harmonica MG?
6:42 am
MonkeyGames

Can't be true, Cross. She'd never survive.
6:43 am
Haz1558

Maybe it's her newest form of exercise? It's bound to be worth a few calories, cross.
6:43 am
MonkeyGames

Yes, FM. He's a retired folklorist and folk singer as well.
6:43 am
Atalante

wow. thats amazing!
6:43 am

His website's at samhinton.org
6:43 am

so if im practicing my driving with my golf clubs,and put one into the ocean,and it gets stuck in a piolet whales blow hole i can call you grandpa?
6:44 am

That side of the family is indeed really interesting. The other side... well... hmmm.

6:44 am

No, he's 91. Doesn't whale-wrangle anymore. Maybe he could recommend someone, though.
6:44 am

do i play it where it lies,or can i take a drop?lol
6:45 am
FMitch

you could just ask nicely for your ball back of course.
6:45 am

there is that...
6:45 am

But the whale might not speak English.
6:45 am

6:45 am
MonkeyGames

True. I have enjoyed the company of the pilot whales I've met.
6:45 am
Atalante

so this dating fossils thing ... hoe far back does it work?
6:45 am
Haz1558

It might speak a dead language instead.
6:46 am
crosshair

fossil dating works back as far as you like due to carbon dating ata
6:46 am
MonkeyGames

I'll have to ask him that. I think theoretically as far back as they're from, though-- simple (I am told) magnetism effect.

8:06 am
herinfernallady

I wish i could go to bed
8:07 am
flosey

why can't you herin?
8:07 am
herinfernallady

I am with my b.f and we are at a friends place he is doing his thing with his friends i am not here.
8:08 am
flosey

oh herin, that is most frustrating
8:09 am
herinfernallady

well its my fault so its me to blame. This is his night out with the boys im not going to interupt him
8:09 am
flosey

how about just curling up on the couch
8:09 am
herinfernallady

I could if i wanted my friend has a fairly comfy bed.
8:10 am
flosey

hmmm, have to wonder why you would tag along
8:10 am
herinfernallady

This i know as i stayed the night when we were babysitting a very upset friend
8:11 am
herinfernallady

FLosey my pc was broken and i needed the b.fs brains to fix it. He got home late
8:12 am
herinfernallady

On the upside i get to use the internet as mine is not working. For some stupid reason
8:12 am
flosey

ok, understand - and sorry, really non of my business
8:12 am
flosey

at least you can get on with babble
8:12 am
flosey

*none
8:13 am
herinfernallady

No its ok. Flossey. I did start it. I am just wondering how many Starbuck stars are closing in aus.
8:13 am
flosey

now that would concern me!!
8:14 am
herinfernallady

People were told today first by the paper which states would close but people that worked for them got told today that by Sunday they have no job.
8:14 am
flosey

when I go back to TO, I have to go a distance to find Starbucks - in Vancouver they're everywhere
8:14 am
herinfernallady

Its not a concern so much but there is another industry plant is closing to and so many people aren't going to have a job.
8:15 am
flosey

that is very discouraging herin
8:15 am
herinfernallady

Have you seen the 18 pages of closures in the states. About 12 000 people wont have jobs.
8:15 am
flosey

I now take my own coffee when I go back to Toronto
8:16 am
flosey

wow, no I haven't seen an American paper, and we didn't get a paper yesterday, so behind in the news
8:17 am
flosey

I use Ometepe coffee and it has been held up at the American border - why, I don't know
8:17 am
herinfernallady

I don't like starbucks coffee, Chai tea yes. But so many people about 600 in Aus aren't going to have a job. Its really sad. I used to work in the hospitality industry. The place I used to work at Schlotskys Deli just closed its doors at Midnight and the next day we turned up to work to see a big GO AWAY sign. What was in our lockers we couldn't retrieve
8:17 am
flosey

we do have a roasting company here on Salt Spring though, and it
8:17 am
flosey

good coffee
8:18 am
flosey

herin, that's terrible
8:18 am
herinfernallady

mmm coffee. I lived near a maker and it smelled good tasted like crap. In the fog in winter the fog tasted like brewed coffee
8:19 am
flosey

they had to move the roasting plant, neighbours were complaining
8:19 am
herinfernallady

That is why i feel for these people. Its really hard to get and keep a job in the hospitality industry.
8:19 am
flosey

very sad
8:20 am
herinfernallady

Wow. I could see why the neighbours would complain. Burnt coffee smells awfull
8:20 am
flosey

oh yes, it does indeed, if anyone has ever had coffee boil over on a stove
8:21 am
flosey

it would happen every once in a while back in the days of percolators
8:23 am
herinfernallady

It happens regularly to me with bad barristers. Over cooking the coffee blar.
8:24 am
flosey

barristers? that is a lawyer here, and blar? sorry don't know that word
8:24 am
herinfernallady

sorry let me try that again.
8:26 am
herinfernallady

Ok Barista's are the people that brew the coffee. A bad one makes the coffee taste horrid. Sorry i mistyped
8:26 am
flosey

ok, understand now, thanks
8:26 am
herinfernallady

Opps tired eyes bad spelling. Helps with babble though
8:27 am
flosey

I don't order coffee in a restaurant unless I know what they're brewing and if they make it regularly
8:28 am
flosey

8:28 am

hey here's a question, if you were making a noun to talk about something that was aerodynamic, what would you make it? aerodynamicity? aerodynamicality? aerodynamism?
12:13 pm

was thinking about tea recently. Drinkg coffee in the am and was thinking of going back to drinking tea. less tea and more anti oxidants
12:13 pm

aerodynamicly
12:13 pm
redshoes

I did take that into consideration Vi. Thanks for the affirmation. =)
12:14 pm
periwinkle

oops that is not a noun
12:14 pm

I think it's "aerodynamics." But I like aerodynamism.
12:15 pm
hurshy

but you can't say something has aerodynamics, can you?
12:15 pm
redshoes

um...too many letters in a row for redshoes to think about it at all. sorry.
12:15 pm
hurshy

you'd have to specify that it had good or bad aerodynamics
12:15 pm
Vicuna

You would say it is aerodynamic.
12:15 pm
phaeton

sounds like a verb
12:15 pm

-ism I would think
12:15 pm
redshoes

no, you say something IS aerodynamic

See, redshoes... thinking like me!

"i have my doubts about that car's aerodynamism"
12:15 pm

aerodynaticism?
12:16 pm

aerodynamicism?
12:16 pm
Atalante

or "aerodynamic ability"
12:16 pm
Vicuna

aerodynamic properties
12:16 pm
redshoes

no, you would say you have your doubts about it's aerodynamics.
12:16 pm
periwinkle

just what I was going to say, Vi
12:16 pm
phaeton

no it would be aerodynamics...not ism
12:17 pm
Erda

and it would be its, not it's
12:17 pm
hurshy

don't you think aerodynamism gives a slightly different nuance than aerodynamics?
12:17 pm

i think i shall coin the -ism for my own enjoyment.

Her brother is lobbying to have her include "nose pinchers" in her list of jewelry types.

Well, icepyro, perhaps you're setting your sights a bit too glamorous. I mean, not everyone can be an international man of mystery or a leader of a drug cartel, or run off with the minsiter's wife, or something.
12:52 pm

You want people to believe your rumors you'd better stick with exceptional halitosis or dysfunctional pets.

1:04 pm
Atalante

you can go on a date while married!
1:05 pm
Judi

You are sadder but wiser, Jessmom. Wisdom consists in not making the same mistake twice. So, now go out there and make all new mistakes!
1:05 pm
jessmom

that was the prob with the ex, he was dating while married...
1:05 pm
MarkDF

Speaking from a guy's perspective (but one who's celebrating 20 years next week), a woman who likes word play (ala Babble) is more than half way there to being a good catch!
1:05 pm
Atalante

just with your husband / wife
1:05 pm
jessmom

aww, thanks Mark (blushing)
1:07 pm

And like Judi said, just go out and make different mistakes! Heck, we all do. I'm not sure there aren't very many I haven't made in the last 20 years of marriage.
1:07 pm

Actually, I expect that jessmom is happier and wiser!
1:08 pm

I agree with mark, intelligent conversation is becoming harder and harder to come by it seems

Yes, blissfully, ecstatically divorced, but a bit lonely
1:09 pm

Well, daughter is back to work on bracelets, son is demanding help with legos, my chance at conversation (intelligent or otherwise) with adults (virual or otherwise) is over. Back later, no doubt. Goodbye, all.

there's a dwindling group of traveling bards in Rajasthan, India who can narrate epic poetry for seven or eight nights in a row

Aaarrgh! How can there be 160 MORE words left in the grid. I must not be seeing well today.
1:11 pm
JBV

:) - still going, icep
1:11 pm
JBV

so the problem is not that they can't remember the poems - they can - but they claim their audiences - the local village people do not have the attention span to SIT THROUGH THE PERFORMANCE!
1:11 pm
icepyro

*listens intently*
1:12 pm
JBV

they quoted an oldtimer who complained that the youth are spoiled from watching TV!
1:12 pm

Maybe they're not telling it right!

JBV

well if by "right" you mean with flashy animated computer assisted technology, I suppose so
1:13 pm

No, just funny voices. :-)
1:13 pm

so of course another centuries old tradition is slowly dying out with this generation

If it weren't for his brother in Floriday claiming "hanging chads" and cheating with the numbers - think about it - we never would have gone to war!

the founding fathers knew a democracy would be untenable
2:00 pm

thats because they did not have democracy in Britain.

danf63 point is well taken. But the reality is that the two political parties in the US rely on voter apathy

true KT, but if less than 40% vote, there will never be a majority winner. And the people who complain the most (at least around here) are the ones who didn't vote!
2:02 pm

has there ever been an independent president?

buying votes is against the law, but you could probably pick who you wanted and have someone use your choices as theirs, especially on an absentee ballot
