1:15 am
jillibus

still have the recipe somewhere
1:15 am
PAV3

that prob is it Jilli! since I can't have cinnamon, I was a bit trepid, til I found out ther's not in it...
1:16 am
Andree

pav hasn't allspice got cinnamon in it
1:16 am
Andree

sounds an interesting cake
1:16 am
jillibus

brb -- will look for the recipe...
1:17 am
nDanLia

Ground allspice is not, as some people believe, a mixture of spices. Rather, it is the dried fruit of the Pimenta dioica plant.
1:18 am
PAV3

well, our resident "baker/know-it-all" says alspice comes from it's own berry so it wouldn't have cinn unless it was added after grounding up...personally, she's a bit batty, and makes me wonder at times...
1:18 am
nDanLia

The name "allspice" was coined by the English, who thought it combined the flavour of several aromatic spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
1:19 am
PAV3

and there you go, Dan has it!
1:19 am

sweets for my sweet sugar for my ho5

thx dan that is very interesting i always thought it was a mixture of spices
1:20 am
PAV3

so if I can't smell the cinn in it, prob it has none, yes, Dan? I'd love a whole piece tomorrow...and then if I die you won't hear from me again!!=) How exciting!! and dangerous!
1:21 am
nDanLia

we had can in house growing up, so i'd read the side early on; to finish off knowledge:Allspice, also called Jamaica pepper,"Kurundu" Myrtle pepper, pimento, or newspice
1:22 am
Andree

that must be hard pav, lots of cakes, cookies and some meat dishes have cinnamon
1:22 am

6:13 am

I have a lot of experience with this sort of thing (worked for vets lots and in rescue). Unfortunately this lump is hard and irregularly shaped and doesn't move around. But I still hope t's an abscess. However it ian't painful and abscesses usually are. Sigh.

Indeed, Scrabbs, always something.... it defines human nature, really.

Yup. Smoothe edged, clearly subcutaneous, and moves about would all be GOOD things. Oh well. It's a good vet. This'll shoot that bank account down below 0 though, especially if they want an x-ray. Probably they'll start with a needle biopsy thopugh.

We think the cat is about 10. We adopted her from a friend moving away, about 7 years ago when we think she was about 3. That friend got her as a big kitten; vet said at that time she could have been anywhere between 7 and around 14 months old. So anyway, yeah, she's definitely ABOUT 10.

I have been profoundly sad for the last 2 wks, not depressed, just very sad and having difficulty focusing on anything else.
6:20 am

good morning lil
6:21 am
MonkeyGames

No, especially where it is. I know a good bit about it and if it was just in the muscle of a thigh or something I think she'd do very well with surgery, but it's tucked under a front leg right up on the ribs and there's just too much risk of muscle and nerve damage and tehy'd have to go deep, I think. But she's not seeming ill so I have my hopes up.
6:21 am

Hi Lil*monkey.

6:22 am

Monkey, wise choice. As long as she is not seeming ill give her lots of love and attention
6:23 am
MonkeyGames

Yes, poor little guy. But he's through the really bad part now. Thing is though, he has a cold and it seems like he's white and tired like during the Bad Virus... how long does it take to get these all the WAY out of the system? Poor Sprite's family have been down with it for weeks, since Walter gave it to them, too.
6:23 am

Nono, I have the 2 bodies of land in water. What fish word am I missing please?

Crossy, my friend Mary was diagnosed with brain cancer shortly after being induced early and delivering her 3rd child one year ago this week.
6:25 am
MonkeyGames

Good things about the cat: no weight loss, behavior changes, coat changes. limp even though this is under a leg, and no sign of dicomfort when I feel the lump up.
6:25 am

6:25 am

Wow, thanks Nono! ***the cheque is in the mail*** Vowels are done!
6:27 am
MonkeyGames

I know. I'm just jumpy since the Mystery Virus. When he goes dead white with those big circles under his eyes and gets tired all the time my mama-paranoia jumps me. But I have teh same cold right now and he's had a NASTY night and morning so I can't blame him for being pale and tired! I will not worry. Really. Honest.

6:29 am
NonoNanette

I will wait patiently for that checque Lori LOL
6:29 am
Scrabbler

Crossy, she has a severe myopathy (muscle weakness) from chemo and can barely move. Chemo is on hold, a muscle biopsy was done, and steroid treatment will start. The good news: the cancer has not spread or recurred. Bad news, as is often the case: the cancer treatment is so toxic.
6:29 am
ladycece920

it's an ol 7/40, plural of ol 6, spanish cheer, plus what fish have
6:29 am

Meanwhile Walter still really likes school and the changes I made around meals and so forth are seriously paying off: he's even trying new things.
6:30 am

Usual breakdfast: pancakes made with strawberry yoghurt instead of the milk. Lunch: various sandwiches; current favorite, salami and cheese. Dinners, still prefers rice but is now startingt o branch out.
6:32 am

Snacks usually rice cakes with butter and hagelslag, or crackers and cheese, apples, raisins, and I admit sometimes cookies or a surprise egg.

olease send her and her family all my best wishes,i defininatly understand the toxic part.the best you can do as a friendis to be there for her,for a ride,to make her a tea.i found that people and friiends just being there to lend a hand with daily things makes a world of difference as it gave me a posative outlook even in the depths of my treatments.give them all my love and hopes for a speedy recovery scrabbs

6:33 am

have you ever monkied in a word and then not be able to see it in the grid?
6:34 am
MonkeyGames

He really likes apples and bananas and pears (although i think we'll try to keep bananas out for a few days).
6:34 am

she always ate my platters but wouldn't eat my meals and the platters were amazingly healthy
6:34 am

I used to juice fresh carrot and apples and she loved that
6:35 am
MonkeyGames

Oh and today in the woods we passed where the people at the bulb farm often put out flowers for sale. They had a big pile of organic purple cabbages. Walter isisted he wants one for dinner., so what the heck, I'll stir fry some! He will often try anything I am willing to put soy sauce on.
6:35 am
sandyloo

scrab, I really feel for you at the moment, it is so hard to watch and be able to do nothing
6:35 am
MonkeyGames

The cabbage he picked out is bigger than his head.
6:36 am
sandyloo

Lol
6:36 am
crosshair

i used to use the platter idea with my son as well sandy,i think ist something about the food being laid out all casual on a single large plate versus a formal dinner set up that makes picky eaters enjoy them
6:36 am
sandyloo

also it is in bite sizes , I think that helped
6:37 am
KatieMcG

afternoon everyone
6:37 am
MonkeyGames

I do that with Walter too. But things got to th epoint where he wouldn't eat ANYTHING but rice, no matter how it's laid out, but now with new scheduling and more strictness he's branching out again. I made him a chart with pictures of clocks so he can see when lunch and snacksa nd all are forthcoming.

I like the term "spastic running"--the bunnies look so funny when they do it--stop, start, turn, sprint...I think it is practice for running away from predators, such as you, Crossy.

The vet said everything I already said myself: lump does not move freely, is not purely subcutaneous, is not overtly painful, and is unevenly shaped. Bad signs.

This is just such a GOOD cat.... NEver scratched or bitten in her life, loving, oddly doglike sometimes, adorse the dog (you should see her: she'll snag the dog by both cheecks with her claws so she can wash her eyebrows (dog is a Great Dane)). She followed us to playgroup a few weeks ago and let all the toddlers play with her. I was hoping she'd make it to 20 or so. Of course, maybe she still will, but I have to accept this is not looking good.

Actually I did lots of useful and much-needed housework yesterday, so perhaps today's Babble is better-earned than usual, at least.
10:10 am
Vicuna

Hello, Narnia queen. Would you be Susan or Lucy? Or the White Witch?
10:11 am
FMitch

There must be something in the air around the world all this housework being done - even I succombed the other day
10:11 am
Vicuna

Scary!
10:11 am
FMitch

bfsog

10:30 am
Atalante

in8 = the rest of it goes better with ad****** (much more common word)
10:30 am
BzznBea

The middle part of the 8 is a masculine pronoun
10:30 am
Babs1

in (instead of ad) and the sticky word like a bandage
10:30 am
72 Temple Owl

Kathihle

Howyadoin, Haz? And how's this horrible grid going?
1:42 pm

Yes, give us the money or have 50 squillion cats landed on you.

Should I divert those counsellors and psychologists?
1:58 pm
Atalante

yes please
1:59 pm
Haz1558

The secret is to only ever comment on things you do know about, but keep quiet when you know you're on shaky ground. That way, nobody can say 'Gosh, what rot!'

I always remember my shock when the first pictures of the newly released Mandela were shown. \We were so used to seeing the original picture of him as a young man that it took me by surprise to see an elderly gentleman standing beside PW Botha.

The vet agreed with myassessment (I have worked for vets). Lump doesn't move when manipulated, is hard, is not particularly painful, and is irregularly shaped. But there is still a chance it's benign. Low, but there.

When they get REALLY old they get oddly light. They are like air. You have to be careful petting them if they're standing up. But old, old cats have a certain wisdom I rarely see anywhere else. Sometimes in goats.

No one wears a corset properly without a personal maid.
3:11 pm

it's easy!
3:11 pm
Haz1558

Not really. Women are skilled at doing things behind their back to secure underpinnings etc.
3:11 pm
Vicuna

If you can tie it yourself, it isn't a corset. Just a glorified cummerbund.
3:12 pm
DR1965

tht is what I was thinking Vic- Corsets are supposed to be tight arent they
3:12 pm
crosshair

thought we WERE talking bout corsets...
3:12 pm
Vicuna

You need to be holding onto the back of the chair while the maid puts her knee in the small of your back.
3:13 pm
Atalante

you can still tie them! even if you bring the laces back round to the front to tie :P
3:13 pm
Haz1558

Did personal maids spend all their spare time at the gym getting enough muscle power for the corset lacing?
3:13 pm
Pinikula

3:13 pm

Personal maids didn't have spare time... except one half day a month.
3:14 pm

the maids coud get even by going too tight and cutting and searing the ends:)
3:14 pm
Haz1558

Maybe they just had to build up their strength themselves then.
3:15 pm
Vicuna

Or by making the aglets unmatching just to irritate!
3:15 pm
Kazzer99

evening all, maids is interesting but does anyone one have the ha 5/18 please
3:15 pm
Kazzer99

not the doulbe vowel one
3:15 pm
Vicuna

ha5/18 - pl of ha4/8, which has an improbable double vowel and is worth 8 points.
3:16 pm
Vicuna

Oh. I take it all back.
3:16 pm
Haz1558

ha5/18 - either a plural for ha4/8 or ha plus the beginning of the swimming creature.
3:16 pm
Haz1558

And we're not talking mermaids
3:17 pm
Vicuna

Although it is somewhat mermaid-like in incorporating half a fi4.
3:17 pm
Kazzer99

ta haz and going back to maids - didnt the victorians invent some sort of winding device to pull the corsets really tight
3:17 pm
crosshair

crossy checks his fishing liscence,and notes that it does not have the mermaid exemption
3:17 pm
Haz1558

I don't suppose mermaids were much use at lacing corsets either.
3:17 pm
Kazzer99

and they made themout of whalebone
3:17 pm
Haz1558

They probably did, Kazzer. It would make sense.
3:18 pm
Vicuna

Hard to put a knee in the small of someone's back when all you've got is a tail.
3:18 pm
crosshair

no kazz,they used a instrument much like what hockey players use to tighten skate laces
3:18 pm
Haz1558

You make a good point, Vicuna. Mermaids would have been at a disadvantage in the personal maids job seeking situation.
3:19 pm
