right ... time for me to adjust my mental clock ... must remember the flip comes at 08:00 now, no longer 07:00 .. so I'm late!! lol
12:10 am
PAV3

we discovered earlier, Kath, that a lot of us using Win I.E. were having "scripting" problems, which removes words even if we choose to continue or not..Ursh and I saw this earlier...we also had the third ranking not show "Who's Hot" for quite some time...
12:10 am
Kathihle

bye for now - will dive briefly into the grid then get on with the day
12:10 am
Uneaixoise

PAV i had the same problem for awhile with Firefox as well
12:10 am
Kathihle

PAV> I use Firefox, so it's not that
12:10 am
jillibus

but PAV, I am NOT using IE, but Firefox!
12:11 am
Kathihle

lol
12:11 am
Pinikula

i use FF, too
12:11 am
jillibus

and the script message was about IE
12:12 am
PAV3

hmmm. you know I start with Firefox and then move to IE for Lickety's list...that's where the error message appears, so I presumed...perhaps it is a Firefox isssue?
12:12 am
Uneaixoise

jilli, had to try vache! LOL
12:12 am
Uneaixoise

no, used to have it with IE as well
12:12 am
Kathihle

I don't think my problems are to do with the site at all, I think it's my laptop ... I used a USB keyboard and every now and then it stops functioning ... if I type a few words on the laptop keyboard it corrects itself
12:12 am
lynxxx

I use Firefox and did not have that problem
12:13 am
Pinikula

to play babble, i moved from ie to ff...works fine now

1:44 am
VolleymomDee

I am going to have nightmares from your icon spirte.
1:44 am
Hugabugs

I don't know, and the docs don't seem worried about it... so everything is going to stay as is
1:44 am
Hugabugs

but they have decided that I have IBS
1:44 am
jillibus

hope you'll be feeling better, though, hugs!
1:45 am
jillibus

what is IBS?
1:45 am
sprite

if there was even a remote chance of it not being benign, they would be testing already, Hugs. So that is the sunny side. Really hope you will feel better though.
1:45 am
VolleymomDee

fibroids are a pain, literally; had them for several years before hysterectomy... was thankful to git rid of them. Your symptoms sounded like IBS... also icky... isn't it hell to get all that stuff? Irritable bowel syndrome, jili
1:45 am
Hugabugs

irritable bowel syndrome
1:46 am
jillibus

oh, what a nuisance -- difficult diet coming up?
1:46 am
sprite

that is a very unpleasant syndrome :(
1:46 am
VolleymomDee

have found several helpful meds for my IBS - lactulose, levsin, and an herbal tea I have no clue what is in it
1:47 am
GroovyKiwi

love the cupcake in your photo mlf lol
1:47 am
VolleymomDee

if you find your trigger foods and avoid them, you will feel better
1:47 am
Hugabugs

now it's a matter of eliminating one food at a time to see what causes a reaction
1:47 am
sprite

that is going to take some time, Hugs. Do they have lists with foods most likely to trigger?
1:47 am
VolleymomDee

start with MSG (monosodium glutamate)... one of worst triggers, chocolate, carbonated beverages, sometimes beef
1:48 am
jillibus

must go to bed -- best of luck, hugs *poof*
1:48 am
sprite

night jilli, again :)
1:48 am
Hugabugs

g'nite jilli and thanks
1:48 am
rururocks

could you do one more hint on the spelling of that po7 hugs?
1:48 am
VolleymomDee

they also found that red & yellow dies and brewer's yeast are triggers for me... I'll pray that you find yours fast, and that you get relief quickly
1:49 am
Hugabugs

I rarely have carbonated beverages... and seldom beef or chocolate (just the odd craving)...
1:49 am
rururocks

I googled whiskeys and couldn't find anything
1:49 am
VolleymomDee

raw veggies or lettuce?
1:49 am
Hugabugs

what has brewer's yeast?
1:50 am
sprite

beer
1:50 am
VolleymomDee

beer, some stews
1:50 am
Hugabugs

well I never have that
1:50 am
VolleymomDee

some meds use it as a binder (like folic acid)
1:50 am
VolleymomDee

which is how I discovered my issue - got hives
1:51 am
Hugabugs

ruru - po + a person between 12 and 20 is one of the var. of spelling... with this one add a cons.
1:51 am
sprite

hives? What are hives, Dee?
1:51 am
VolleymomDee

in the meds it is ground into a powder - the pharmacist checks my meds now, and I have folic acid compounded with something else
1:51 am
Hugabugs

I get hives from tuna
1:51 am
VolleymomDee

itchy red blotches that swell up... 1st indication of a true allergy vs. a sensitivity
1:52 am
VolleymomDee

wow tuna? other seafood, too?
1:52 am
sprite

thanks Dee. Sounds painful!
1:52 am
sprite

thanks Hugs for the po
1:53 am
Hugabugs

I'm not fond of any type of seafood, so I just avoid it all
1:53 am
Hugabugs

yw Sprite. ruru... did you get it?
1:53 am
VolleymomDee

benadryl usually takes care of them, but it is a pain to mess with all this stuff; keep your chin up hug. MSG is now in lots of cereals, processed crackers, soups, etc... so getting rid of that helped me a bunch.
1:53 am
sprite

I hope it will prove to be something simple and easy to avoid, Hugs.
1:53 am
Hugabugs

Dee - what kind of herbal tea?
1:54 am
rururocks

Andree

i just bumble along and if i don't finish bad luck
3:13 am
Andree

what i did of it was fun haz, just too big on a working day for me
3:14 am
Haz1558

I don't honestly know - it had to be slotted in between various other duties, but it was less stressful than some of the shorter ones because so many of the words were normal.
3:14 am
hydra

I like to score 1000 and anything after that is a bonus
3:14 am
Haz1558

I didn't pay a huge amount of attention to the chat log - it gets too distracting when you're trying to find that many words.
3:15 am
Andree

the 1/2 way i got was pretty quick, as you say haz mostly normal.... for a change
3:15 am
Andree

i seldom enter the chat with a big one
3:16 am
hydra

nor me
3:17 am
Haz1558

It's too easy to get caught up in conversations and get waylaid - or else end up doing someone else's words for them instead of finding your own.

4:27 am

Ata, do you mind your name being used in advertising? MOREWORDS 'as used by Atalante'
4:27 am
Atalante

nooooo I stated in the log it was a ONE OFF! LOL
4:28 am
Haz1558

That's what they all say. But when temptation strikes and you can't find a word, there it lurks, waiting, begging to be used.

Atalante

nooooooo
4:29 am
FMitch

Think I had better make a start on this grid, until work interrupts again.
4:30 am
Atalante

but i did realise how you can finish so quickly!
4:30 am
Haz1558

Ah, but nobody knows how quickly or slowly I finish because I never say when I'm done.
4:31 am
Atalante

we just *know*
4:31 am
FMitch

lol!
4:31 am
Haz1558

I'm just too impatient not to use it - once I've exhausted my own vocabulary.
4:32 am
Haz1558

I couldn't understand some people going to the list/morewords 100 words in yesterday. That actually handicaps you more, I think, in a big grid.
4:33 am
Atalante

I know! that's more than anything really why I don't use the list, I simply don't find it helpful, apart from finding a last few words
4:34 am
FMitch

everyone has their own technique.
4:34 am
Atalante

absolutely
4:34 am
Haz1558

True. I've even heard of some people who go through from z to a. Imagine that!
4:35 am
FMitch

ridiculous ;)
4:35 am
Atalante

and some just start at the top of the list and ask for clues for every word *coughs* I didn't see that at all last night, honestly
4:35 am
Haz1558

Absolutely!
4:35 am
Haz1558

ae5/10?
4:35 am
FMitch

I did a Haz worthy clue last night, your skills must be rubbing off on me.
4:35 am
Atalante

yep! then the ae6s ... etc
4:36 am
Haz1558

I'm not an advocate for tattoos, but ae5/10 tattooed somewhere might be a good reminder.
4:36 am
Haz1558

Oh, what clue did you give?
4:36 am
LoriP

Oooh, is this a cheer and sneer? G'd morning.
4:37 am
FMitch

it was for the tr8 and went something like 'attempt to go through the doors but drops an r on the way'.
4:37 am
Haz1558

Actually, Ata, you could maybe incorporate some babblets into tattoo designs. Now that you use morewords, you'll have more time for your art.
4:37 am
Haz1558

Good morning Lori!
4:37 am
FMitch

Morning Lori!
4:37 am
Atalante

looooool
4:37 am

4:38 am
FMitch

LOL
4:38 am
Haz1558

Oh dear. Such images.
4:38 am
Atalante

nooooo! only for a few words when my brain was 99% asleep last night!
4:38 am
Haz1558

Volcanos spouting over tenrecs and eagles quitting their aeries. I love it.
4:39 am
Haz1558

(Start of the slippery slope, Lori)
4:39 am
FMitch

as a one off, I think it is allowable but just don't do it again Ata - or admit to doing it anyway :)
4:39 am
LoriP

Soon she'll be asking for et 4's.....
4:39 am
Atalante

there's an et4? clue pls
4:40 am
Haz1558

Will it be kind of evolution in reverse?
4:40 am
Atalante

et4. clue pls.
4:40 am
FMitch

you left off a lot of "!!" Ata
4:41 am
Haz1558

Lori - your profile is GREAT.
4:41 am
Atalante

I'm working up to that!
4:41 am
Haz1558

And you need to let us know your thought process.
4:41 am
LoriP

:D @ Haz
4:41 am
Atalante

oh, no. just wait for a clue and then go "don't get it"
4:42 am
Haz1558

et4/4 - et plus the first letters of Mrs Astor.
4:42 am
Atalante

don't get it
4:43 am
LoriP

et + first 2 letters of Ronnie Reagan's Mrs. ***waits for inevitable.... 'who'?***
4:43 am

4:43 am
Atalante

4:43 am
FMitch

loool Ata
4:43 am
Atalante

(aren't I good?)
4:43 am
Haz1558

et4/4 - anagram of the word that goes with tidy
4:43 am
LoriP

et + 14th letter of alphabet + 1st letter of alphabet?
4:43 am
Haz1558

et4/4 - anagram of Latin before
4:43 am
Atalante

don't get it. can you clue it better?
4:44 am
LoriP

Go ahead and try not to get that!
4:44 am
FMitch

'Oh I am so going to laugh if someone turns up
4:44 am
Atalante

alphabet?
4:44 am
Haz1558

et4/4 The little alien plus first letters of Princess Royal backwards.
4:44 am
Haz1558

(Two people to puzzle over)
4:44 am
Atalante

*cries* I can't do it anymore!!!
4:45 am
Haz1558

Expecting a courier, FM?
4:45 am
Atalante

4:45 am
LoriP

***prepared to take one for the tea*** etna! In the name of all that's holy, the word is etna! ***goes to pb***
4:45 am
FMitch

for once No.
4:45 am
LoriP

*team even
4:45 am
Haz1558

Have you got it now, Ata?
4:45 am
Atalante

oh, I've already got that one. I meant el5
4:46 am
LoriP

Then she'll ask for the et 5/10..........
4:46 am
FMitch

lool
4:46 am
Haz1558

Classic!
4:46 am
LoriP

Ack, I almost choked on my coffee Ata

4:47 am
Haz1558

You haven't given us any tyty tyty tyty, super cluers.
4:47 am

***taping my ribs to avoid further injury***
4:47 am

4:47 am
FMitch

this would make a brilliant flow chart *did I say that out loud?*
4:49 am
Haz1558

Oh, I've had such a laugh.
4:49 am
FMitch

*quietly slips under the tiles in the hope of finding some words*
4:50 am
LoriP

I think I need a paramedic.
4:50 am
Haz1558

Do your ribs ac4/6?
4:51 am
Atalante

mine do! and my firefox's did, cos it just shut itself down lol
4:51 am
LoriP

I'm not gettin' it. Can you clue it another way?
4:51 am
Haz1558

Bad firefox!
4:51 am
Atalante

very!
4:51 am
FMitch

ooo found a kv word, I love my monkeys.
4:52 am
Atalante

ooo!
4:52 am
LoriP

Isn't that kv word great? T'was my 3rd word.
4:52 am
Haz1558

(What's with these people who find kv words with monkeys?)
4:53 am
FMitch

no def though
4:53 am
LoriP

Noticed it because it contains anatomical word from male nether regions.
4:53 am
FMitch

lol trust you!
4:53 am
LoriP

It's a Russian beer!
4:54 am
FMitch

oh double trust you then - male bits and alcohol!
4:54 am
LoriP

Hey, we all have our unique approaches to finding words.
4:54 am
Haz1558

Well there you are. No wonder I needed a prompt from the log to find it. Russian beer and male nether regions aren't exactly my ....areas of expertise.
4:54 am
Atalante

looooool
4:55 am
LoriP

I am but a vessel of the spirits. I have been chosen.
4:55 am
Haz1558

Possessed, more like.
4:56 am
Atalante

Povesseled
4:56 am
FMitch

yeah, gin, vodka, brandy..
4:56 am
Haz1558

Well, I'll see your Russian beer and raise you a flightless bird.
4:56 am
LoriP

We have a VAStly different opinion on that.
4:57 am
Haz1558

There's a variation of Irish moonshine to join with the Russian beer. International drunkenness.
4:57 am
Atalante

that was my first word :)
4:58 am
Haz1558

Two flightless birds (I forgot to plural)
4:58 am
LoriP

Well, it's a beautiful time of day, wake the spawnlings, and shoo, shoo, shoo them out the door to a place of higher learning, the school bus.
4:58 am
FMitch

See you later Lori
4:58 am
LoriP

Back in a bit. Laters!
4:58 am
Atalante

wouldn't that be 3 then? the singular and 2 (at minimum) for the plural?
4:59 am
Haz1558

See you Lori.
5:00 am
Haz1558

Ah, but I said, flightless bird. Then I said flightless birds. The flightless bird could have been joined by another singular flightless bird, thus making only 2.
5:00 am
Atalante

this is true. it depends if the one flightless bird is independent of the other(s)
5:00 am
FMitch

phone ...
5:01 am
Haz1558

It could be a travelling flightless bird, what do you think? Just turned up in its caravan and look! Another flightless bird!
5:02 am
Atalante

could be! or it could be a flightless bird carrying around a birdy chainsaw to cripple other birds it sees flying around, in jealousy of their flight status
5:02 am
Haz1558

No! That would be the infamous gorhen/gorcock.
5:03 am
Atalante

looooooooool yes!
5:03 am
Haz1558

Now THERE'S a bird that would have tattoos and chains and things.
5:03 am
Atalante

absolutely!
5:04 am
Haz1558

No chavs allowed today. There's a relief.
5:04 am

5:05 am
Haz1558

I'll need to slip out as well. Will you manage, Ata? You can always use morewords if you're stuck. You know that now.
5:05 am
Atalante

I think I can cope. Just.

7:18 am

Carleekat, Annie and Red, many people away from USA will be glued too.
7:19 am
carleekat

i have been following obama since he gave teh keynote address... last election..he gave me goosebumps as he spoke and I said to myself " there is the first black president"
7:19 am
redturtlehead

It's ahuge deal. I am glad actually also that we have so many new voters...regardless of their vote. It means we are ready for something different and it means people care.
7:20 am
BzznBea

It will be interesting and I will be glad when it is over.
7:20 am
carleekat

that is how i feel too rth... vote..I like aussie's rules...no vote..u are fined....imagine the cash that COULD raise in USA
7:21 am
redturtlehead

I met him in NH waaay back last year, He was very impresive and polite in person...it was before he won the nomination.
7:21 am
BzznBea

It will also be interesting to see who wins the NC senate seat. That has been a nasty one.
7:21 am
redturtlehead

Oh yes Bea, that is true! Hagen and dole?
7:21 am
JBV

just tuning in .... my vote is for Obama also, maybe time to bring a little thoughtful intelligence into the White House......
7:21 am
BzznBea

Yes.
7:22 am
Anniebrook

amen, JBV
7:22 am
Frances

I just hope that with all the hype he doesn't come a cropper like a certain Mr Blair!
7:22 am
redturtlehead

Yes, I was amazed as the ads against Hagen!
7:22 am
elder

From what I understand USA need to tidy up their voting system.
7:22 am
redturtlehead

Frances, I hope he has the opportunity to be a cropper...though I hope he doesnt be one.
7:22 am
elder

Frances. yes.
7:23 am
JBV

but if Obama wins he will most likely have a Democrat congress, was that the case with Blair?
7:23 am
BzznBea

As a Kansan, I always thought of the Doles as above reproach.
7:23 am
JBV

I mean a majority of his party in Parliament?
7:23 am
redturtlehead

Yes, I believe we do need to clean up the election system. Amazes me that we can vote for American Idol easier than the president.
7:23 am
carleekat

i was stunned over the dole ads
7:24 am
elder

Frances, long time since I last saw you here. Good to see you again.

7:24 am

7:29 am

JBV, I think most politicians, if they are in office long enough, become somewhat corrupted. They all get their houses renovated with taxpayer's money. Look at Stevens up in Alaska....a very corrupt state.... Palin scares me...Oh! I better stop.

Hi Atalante

Atalante

she's looking expectantly at me
8:54 am
Haz1558

See, of you kept her chained up in her kennel, that wouldn't happen.
8:54 am
Anniebrook

Got it, Haz...thank you
8:54 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, Annie.
8:54 am
Atalante

no, she'd spend her days barking very loudly at anyone who walked past!
8:55 am
Haz1558

*if you kept her....
8:55 am
Atalante

could you clue the bottom-ish kv, pls, Haz dear?
8:55 am
Haz1558

So, you have sacrificed yourself for the sake of passers-by.
8:56 am
Atalante

yes, cos her bark is very loudly and it would still wake me up LOL
8:56 am
Haz1558

kv4/11 - you mean? Didn't you find it when you looked in morewords?
8:56 am
Atalante

oh yes, silly me, I forgot
8:57 am
Atalante

that looks more like Klingon than Russian
8:57 am
Haz1558

Okay - how about K plus the start of Mr De Gama.
8:58 am
hurshy

yay for klingon!
8:58 am
Haz1558

It should be Mr Da Gama - sorry for any confusion caused.
8:58 am

it is a russian alcholic beverage

Does Hobbit need to do some strenuous barking to get you fully with it?
9:05 am

Goodness, Ata, that was very vigorous for a headac4 sufferer!

I've just had some ibuprofen :)
9:09 am

I hope that will do the trick.
9:09 am
Vicuna

So, what joy today, my partners in mayhem?
9:09 am
hurshy

joy joy joy, ata's helping her heart
9:09 am

or is it her brain?
9:09 am
Haz1558

Well, not that I'm one to gossip but Ata stayed up very late last night.
9:09 am
hurshy

well, ibuprofen is good for SOMETHING
9:10 am
Vicuna

And hurshy, too! Hello!
9:10 am

Do tell, Haz!?!?
9:10 am
inge

I need help with my very last word: re 6/21, just before what you pay to the landlord, Please.
9:10 am
Haz1558

I thought it was aspirin that was good for the heart, less good for the stomach.
9:10 am
Vicuna

Is that warm up again?
9:10 am

Hello everyone! Warm again Inge
9:10 am

And even though it was very late, she finished the grid! She's suffering from sleep deprivation and word frenzy.

Congratulations inge.

if she finished, why was she saying she had 48 to go?

so evil of my employeres to make me do work on a MONDAY in the MORNING!
9:12 am
Atalante

yesterday's grid!
9:12 am
Vicuna

Ah yes. I had little time yesterday any way, and did not even attempt the grid. Was it a record, or has there ever been one above 600?
9:12 am
Haz1558

This was last night - I'm explaining how heroic she was to conquer tiredness.
9:12 am
inge

The next person who longs for a 500 plus workd grid gets shot.
9:13 am
Haz1558

Poor EvaN. But they do pay you, don't they?
9:13 am
Atalante

there was one above 600 once upon a time
9:13 am

if you call giving me money maying me, then yes....
so technical...

9:14 am
Haz1558

9:14 am

Ah. Well, I probably didn't do that one, either! I've never been into masochism.
9:14 am
EvaNadine

there are no bright sides on monday mornings...heh
9:15 am
EvaNadine

though, with daylight savings happening over the weekend, this morning WAS brighter than they have been lately :)
9:15 am

it was years and years ago
9:15 am

But you'll get darker earlier? I'm never keen on the winter evenings.

Good morning Lori.
9:44 am
Atalante

did you happen to watch the programme on the history of Mills & Boon last night, Haz?
9:44 am
Haz1558

No, I didn't. Was it interesting?
9:45 am
Haz1558

You don't suppose Heather Mills is a director?
9:45 am
Haz1558

Of Mills and Boon, I mean.
9:45 am
Atalante

I haven't watched it yet. Friend who was in prostitute play was in it, so I've just downloaded it to watch. I'll give a report, it's meant to be a very good watch
9:45 am
Atalante

oh probably
9:46 am
SharonRA

i can't for the life of me find the po 7, the last one. clue anybody?
9:46 am
Haz1558

I'll be interested to hear about it.
9:47 am
Haz1558

po7 - variation in spelling of Irish illegal alcohol.
9:47 am
Atalante

it's one of those programmes - I think - which could either be very very good, or just boring
9:48 am
Haz1558

I've never read any of the novels but it still might be interesting to trace the development of the genre.
9:48 am
SharonRA

that's not a help i'm afraid, sorry..... :(
9:48 am
Haz1558

Do you have po6/24 after it?
9:48 am
Atalante

nor me, they just look so banal and trite. but we'll see.
9:49 am
Haz1558

po6/24 after it has the same structure as the maternal figure. For po7/36 - use the first five letters of po6/24, then double your vowel and finish off.
9:52 am
phandmd

hello, can someone help me with AS 6 pls?
9:52 am
BzznBea

po7 - po + someone between 12 and 20 with an extra
9:52 am
LoriP

a + an aroma or smell
9:52 am
BzznBea

consonate.
9:52 am

Hobbit needs a shed.

I take it your husband has gone back to work?
9:54 am
Atalante

yes, amazingly
9:54 am

Besides, you just walked Hobbit last week.
9:55 am
Atalante

she just flopped with a biiiig sigh
9:55 am

Happy Monday, Babblers!
9:55 am
Haz1558

Maybe she's just got caught up with the David Tennant news.
9:55 am

Hello Judi, nice to see you.

10:02 am
phandmd

I have too many of those demons, Lori. but that one is my bane!
10:03 am
Haz1558

It's just that some of us have more demons than others. I have to positively look for asea and niece and I've heard others mentioning them as well.
10:03 am

oh dear just noticed the time, I better run bbl

Oh, et4/4? Ata had the hardest time getting that earlier.

Later phand
10:05 am

Clue after clue. You have no idea how hard we had to work.

Atalante

mine are niece, ocean and ca5
10:07 am
ChrissieDee

Ata, where your ears burning?
10:07 am
Haz1558

Glad to hear that (a) Hobbit only got half a (b) cold sausage. Although what happened to only gruel?
10:08 am
Atalante

uhoh :)
10:08 am
Atalante

gruel was work. cold sausages were in the fridge!
10:08 am
hurshy

curriculum vita, curricula vitae? i'm looking at a lot of sites that say the singular is curriculum vitae but that doesn't make sense to me but i don't really know latin.
10:08 am
Haz1558

Why does hurshy look to Ata for Latin help when I have an O-level in Latin?
10:08 am
Atalante

curriculum vitae
10:08 am
ChrissieDee

oreven were your ears burning?
10:08 am
Judi

Did anyone finish the biggest grid of all time yesterday? I gave up at about 343. The grid that ate my brain.
10:08 am
Haz1558

vitae, means of life - thus, story of life.
10:09 am
Atalante

no, but someone else's might have been :)
10:09 am
hurshy

because hurshy didn't know you had an O-level
10:09 am
hurshy

so vita is just nothing.
10:09 am
Atalante

she probably has more than 1!
10:09 am
Judi

Not if you're living la vita loca!
10:09 am
Haz1558

vita is the nominative, vitae is the genitive (of)
10:09 am
Judi

Actually, I know that's la vida loca.
10:10 am
Atalante

*agrees with Haz*
10:10 am
Atalante

random question, does Latin have locative case?
10:10 am
hurshy

ahhh, cases.
10:10 am
Haz1558

Nominative, vocative, accusative, genitive, dative, ablative.
10:11 am
Atalante

yes, everything with Latin and Greek comes down to cases
10:11 am
Atalante

but there are *ot5* ones too. tricksy ones you don't hear about till degree level
10:12 am
Haz1558

Really? I'm profoundly grateful they kept that from me.
10:13 am
kje

hello again... this is getting slow now
10:13 am
Atalante

ha, yes, we were right. I've just reading "The Secret History" and one of the characters says in there that using a locative noun would work better than whatever the ot5 boy was doing. and locatives aren't used in greek, only in latin. silly author.
10:14 am
phaeton

morning
10:14 am
Haz1558

Oh, and Judi - your question about the grid? Over 100 people finished.
10:14 am
kje

hi phae
10:14 am
Judi

Hiya, Phae & kje!
10:15 am
Judi

Thanks. Now I feel inferior, Haz. Ach. It was too big. Just didn't have the gumption to finish.
10:15 am
kje

how does that compare to normal, haz?
10:15 am
Haz1558

No need to feel inferior!
10:16 am
Haz1558

I have precisely no idea, kje - I only looked out of curiousity because someone had mentioned a Hall of Fame for those who finished. Pretty crowded Hall of Fame!
10:17 am
Judi

599 words. Good God. It was like writing the dictionary.
10:17 am
Haz1558

That's something that Lickety or others don't keep stats for - percentage finishing every day.
10:18 am
Karys

hello everyone.... I finished yesterday, I really enjoyed it, it was a nice grid, if a little over large !
10:19 am
Haz1558

Hello Karys!
10:19 am
kje

a littel oevr large - lolol
10:19 am
Atalante

I wish Lickety would do the same as BJ used to, and do a condensed list: ar4x2, ar5x1, ar6x1 etc
10:19 am
Haz1558

We Brits like understatement.
10:19 am
Karys

lol
10:20 am
kje

why ata
10:20 am
kje

can get the same thing from the current list
10:20 am
Karys

I seem to be having more of a problem with todays 'L' words !!
10:20 am
Atalante

because it's useful
10:21 am
Judi

I see Elton is in the grid today. He would be the King of British understatement. *giggle*
10:21 am
Haz1558

Some of the l words are a wee bit odd.
10:21 am
LoriP

I agree Ata, just a total, not the individual breakdown would be cool.
10:22 am
Haz1558

Lori and Ata like to suffer for their words.
10:22 am
Atalante

yes, I don't want the detail of the list. but for such things as the puzzle yesterday, it would have been lovely to have that partial breakdown
10:22 am
Karys

I actually think someone is moving the letters on my grid when I'm not looking.
10:22 am
LoriP

I must have a Babble hangover from eysterday's grid, but this one is still crawling at a snail's pace for me.
10:22 am
Haz1558

Some had full-blown breakdowns when they saw the word total.
10:23 am
carleekat

it is crawling lori....and I don't have a hangover from yesterday's...i ran out of time and couldn't finish it
10:23 am
LoriP

***darn, Karys caught me switching her letters***
10:23 am
Atalante

same here, lori
10:23 am
Karys

So .... it's you is it Lori !!!!
10:24 am
LoriP

I spent a long time doing grids with printed lists, then Haz made me Pro (god bless 'er) and got the stats panel abck. It's been evolving for me. Incraesingly, i liek to go listless, but often have to torment whoever is on, for a letter count.
10:25 am
LoriP

Wow, that's some stellar typing.....
10:25 am
Haz1558

Well, time I got the canine ready to access her external environment. We'll be back. Hopefully the van sitting outside the shop proclaiming that it sold greeting cards and stationary for the discerning will have gone. If I had had a paint-pot and brush with me this morning...... Bye!
10:25 am
Atalante

have a good perambulation!
10:25 am
carleekat

only 3 typos lori.....that would be maybe a 5 gun salute?
10:25 am
Karys

I only go to the list when I am totally frustrated by not being able to find anything and start repeating things !
10:26 am
Karys

Enjoy the peram.............whatever Ata said!
10:26 am
carleekat

i generally do the list straight off..again..a time thing...
10:26 am
Atalante

I find it takes more time to use the list to start with
10:27 am
carleekat

unless am at work..no list here
10:27 am
LoriP

At least she didn't say purgatory. Happy ambling Haz.
10:27 am
carleekat

its just.."there" with expert..i don't "use" it..actively...it just..is there
10:28 am
LoriP

Yesterday I hit the list after 400 and some, because I had time retsraints.
10:28 am
Karys

I get cross with myself when I do use the list, thinking how silly I am not to have got obvious words !
10:28 am
Atalante

ditto here, Lori
10:28 am
carleekat

fortunately "a" is at the top and I almost NEVER see "vowel" words to start off the day....so....
10:28 am
Atalante

that's why I don't use expert
10:29 am
Karys

must away to peel potatoes..... back later
10:29 am
carleekat

if I did not use expert...i WOULD drop WAY more words in the chog then I already do
10:29 am
LoriP

I use expert, but just slide the list over so i can't see it
10:29 am
Atalante

have fuuuun!
10:29 am
carleekat

must away..back to work...
10:29 am

yup, 2 ae

10:30 am
Atalante

2? hmmm *looks*
10:30 am
kje

ok, got one
10:31 am
LoriP

ae 4, ae 6

10:37 am
Atalante

I have a random question that is not meant to lead at all into politics, but why is Obama always described as African-American, when he's only half AA. Why don't people ever pay heed to his white half too?
10:38 am
LoriP

*** ducks *** :p
10:39 am
Denny

Evening all - the board has my surname in today :-)
10:39 am
Judi

It's stupid, Ata. Some genius in the media noticed that he is not white and decided to share it with the world.
10:40 am
LoriP

G'd afternoon Denny.
10:40 am
Atalante

hi denny
10:40 am
kje

he describes him self that way
10:40 am
Atalante

it just seems odd to me
10:41 am
Judi

It is odd to anyone who is color blind, Ata. There should be more of us. (P.S. I also do not care what shoes Sarah Palin is wearing).
10:41 am
Atalante

but then again it seems odd to me that an american huy I know describes himself as Polish cos his great-grandfather was Polish.
10:42 am
Atalante

you don't? *gasp!*
10:43 am
Judi

Nor do I care where she shops, what she eats, etc. etc.

10:48 am

MonkeyGames

Just got a first look at the grid.... I see that two things atart with the k. Is that possible?
12:36 pm
MonkeyGames

lter, he's in bed... he always wants there to be a K in the grid and he'll never see this one. Oh well.
12:37 pm
phandmd

yes it it true
12:37 pm
MonkeyGames

Poor Walter, that was supposed to start...
12:37 pm
phandmd

one is a very odd word 2nd ltr is v (4ltrs total)
12:38 pm
MonkeyGames

Not kvetch, then... OK, I can work with that!
12:38 pm
MonkeyGames

Found it. I see that kuvasz is not possible for the other one... I'll find it!
12:39 pm
Atalante

is he a k-philiac?
12:41 pm
MonkeyGames

It seems so. He has been asking me to draw the letter K on his chalk board several times daily for nearly a year, and he always wants one to be in the grid. My name starts with K (I did not mean to devastate New Orleans, sorry!), so I guess I'm flattered.
12:41 pm
Atalante

I see!
12:43 pm
MonkeyGames

My favorite phantom (except maybe nematode) is in the grid! Lepton!
12:44 pm
Atalante

yeah, I've been seeing that too
12:45 pm
MonkeyGames

I just found a ca6 I don't recall ever seeing in a grid before. What fun!
12:45 pm
MonkeyGames

Part of a saddle.
12:47 pm
Atalante

that's been in the grid before
12:47 pm
MonkeyGames

I figured it probably had, I just haven't come across it so it must not be super-common is all.
12:50 pm
MonkeyGames

So... election for the US folks tomorrow. Wow. First really interesting one in quite a LONG time. It could even, what's that concept again, Foment Change. Wow.

1:00 pm
EvaNadine

i told her im not drinking whatever water theyre all sharing...
1:00 pm
phandmd

add a gas ending to the word
1:01 pm
EvaNadine

the scary one is that her brother-in-law and his wife are due with their EIGHTH child in the spring!
*EIGHT!!*
1:01 pm
phandmd

then drop the last ltr and add another gas ending (2 ltrs)
1:01 pm

1:06 pm
phandmd

yes, it is a lot of kids, but is it a problem that they have a big family?
1:07 pm
EvaNadine

oh, no, not for them. i just personally find that to be an overwhelming thought.
1:07 pm
phandmd

Yes, I am overwhelmed with the 3 I have
1:08 pm
EvaNadine

i also dont personally find them to be very...kind people...and they few kids they had when i met them last werent very well-adjusted...
but to each their own, i suppose...
1:08 pm
phandmd

I just asked, because I know some people who hate people who have big families. They think they are selfish or something
1:09 pm
phandmd

well, that could be a problem then Eva.
1:09 pm
periwinkle

bbl
1:09 pm
phandmd

see ya peri
1:10 pm
EvaNadine

i feel that if you have the means to raise such a family, enjoy yourself, then.
but if youre living off the government + keep having children, something should be done...
1:10 pm
Jacula

'Bye peri.
1:10 pm
phandmd

Is this family on welfare?
1:11 pm
EvaNadine

nope. i dont know how much they make (i dont believe she works) but i know theyre self-supporting.
1:11 pm

Chiley. I have no idea.
3:50 pm
Mad Giraffe

google it
3:51 pm
chiley

ah...thanks anyway. I remember that they were saying Scarlet is on there often, but I don't know how to find it.
3:51 pm
chiley

I tried that but only came up with a preschoolers site
3:51 pm
chiley

thanks anyway.
3:53 pm
Atalante

it's on facebook
3:53 pm
elder

hello Ata, and to the rescue for Chiley.
3:58 pm
Atalante

good time to just take a look in!
3:58 pm
elder

Could not have timed it better :)
3:59 pm
Atalante

I hope she saw
4:01 pm
Atalante

I'm watching a great programme on Titanic. Not entirely sure what's different to other Titanic programmes though
4:01 pm
elder

Looks as though she may have gone.
4:02 pm
elder

I saw that and decided against. Thought it might be much of the same.
4:02 pm
periwinkle

I play Noggin on facebook
4:02 pm
Atalante

so far, exactly the same, with cooler graphics
4:03 pm
periwinkle

You have to be a member of facebook and noggin is one of the applications/games you can add
4:03 pm
Atalante

but pretty pictures of icebergs!
4:03 pm
periwinkle

hello all
4:03 pm
elder

Recording Spooks, but I wish they would not kill off the characters, just as you get used to them, but I guess that's the spying game.
4:03 pm
Atalante

hi peri
4:04 pm
elder

Scenery would be lovely. hello peri.
4:04 pm
jacq

saer
4:04 pm
Atalante

I *wish* I could get into Spooks. I lost the plot half way through the first season and never managed to get back into it again
4:04 pm
jacq

oops
4:05 pm
elder

jacq, your covered not a word.
4:05 pm
elder

It happens sometimes.
4:05 pm
Atalante

now something more interesting - they think the weakness was actually in the rivets holding the plates of the hull together
4:05 pm
Mad Giraffe

I'd be so good at this game if imaginary words were allowed.
4:06 pm
elder

Mad, we all think that, at times.
4:06 pm
jacq

phew, slips back out of the pb, leaves my wine behind
4:07 pm
elder

Ata, because they built it too quickly, in haste to get it on the water ?
4:08 pm
Atalante

from what they've been saying, not really. something about the amount of slag used in the rivet heads - they used the right % of slag to weaken the iron in one particular direction - which was the direction the force was pushed in with the impact
4:08 pm
Mad Giraffe

What the hell? According to lickety there's a word starting with kv?
4:09 pm
Mad Giraffe

In english?
4:09 pm
Atalante

but they haven't said whether having impure metals was a haste thing or just one of those things of those days
4:09 pm
Atalante

yep kv4
4:09 pm
elder

Ata, the vessel was so unlucky.
4:10 pm
Atalante

ever so
4:11 pm
elder

Mad. try every combination around the Kv it will get you there.
4:11 pm
Atalante

aha - harland and woolf ordered a lesser standard of iron for the rivets. not a bad one, but not the best one
4:11 pm
Atalante

if they had used a higher grade, they say that the sinking would still have happened, but titanic would have stayed afloat long enough for a complete rescue
4:12 pm
elder

Oh, awful.
4:14 pm
Atalante

plus the chaos of a ship sinkage etc etc etc etc, but they are suggesting that the rivets were the "straw that broke the camel's back"
4:14 pm
elder

Today, people would sue the shipping company for millions.
4:15 pm
Atalante

can you *imagine*
4:16 pm
elder

...and Parliament and Gordon.
4:16 pm
Atalante

and the insurance claims would be soooo huge that half our insurers would go bust
4:17 pm
elder

and yet again it would rest on the tax payers in one form or another :)
4:17 pm
Atalante

well of course! *facepalm*
4:17 pm
elder

lol
4:18 pm
Atalante

we'd all find ourselves part-owners of random insurance companies as well as banks
4:19 pm
Mad Giraffe

Eugh, searched the kv4 word on Wikipedia....russians...
4:19 pm
elder

What joy ! we are so rich and don't even know it.
4:19 pm
Atalante

aren't we lucky!
4:20 pm
elder

Mad, another site which may be helpful for you is 'More Words.
4:21 pm
Mad Giraffe

english-dictionary.us is also helpful in a way
4:22 pm
elder

yes. I lay in bed thinking, what I will do with all the money when we have money returned to us in tax rebates.
4:22 pm
Atalante

all 52p of it? cynical, moi?
4:22 pm
elder

lol

4:27 pm
Mad Giraffe

Ooh tricky.
4:27 pm
Atalante

titanic inquiry: recommended that number of lifeboats be based on the number of people on board. well, what a good idea!
4:28 pm
wildcat17

hindsight is 20/20 you know
4:28 pm
elder

Ata, that has always been an issue.
4:28 pm
elder

hello wild.
4:28 pm
wildcat17

hi elder
4:28 pm
Atalante

I know *sigh* it just seems so obvious
4:29 pm
Mad Giraffe

having enough lifeboats is missing out on a good opportunity of natural selection
4:29 pm
elder

Which I think, legislation was brought in to deal with that.
4:29 pm
72 Temple Owl

hi everyon! just getting back on line, my isp quit last night and i was left with 84 words on yesterday's grid.
4:29 pm
elder

mad, that is dreadful.
4:29 pm
Mad Giraffe

Natural selection always is.
4:30 pm
Atalante

but that wasn't natural seclection
4:30 pm
elder

hello To. what a relief for you.
4:30 pm
Atalante

hi TO!
4:30 pm
elder

man made selection.
4:30 pm
72 Temple Owl

hi elder, hi ata, hi peri and all
4:30 pm
Mad Giraffe

God put that iceberg there.
4:30 pm
Atalante

exactly, elder
4:31 pm
Atalante

the iceberg, strangely enough, wasn't the problem
4:31 pm

Hi, Owl
4:31 pm

*is not having such a stupid discussion*
4:32 pm
elder

:)
4:32 pm
Mad Giraffe

Yeah, sorry.
4:33 pm
Atalante

anyway, it ended up an interesting programme :)
4:33 pm
periwinkle

bbl to finish, 42 left, not liking this grid
4:34 pm
elder

Ata, good. so rivets and man were the problem.
4:34 pm
elder

Bye for now Peri.
4:35 pm
elder

nothing changes much.:)
4:35 pm
Atalante

apparently so
4:36 pm
Atalante

there was one interesting bit about the number of lifeboats, and it's hard to see in this age, but way back then after the Victorian era of such confidence and belief in Britain and its abilities ... one of the people said that they didn't think they needed lifeboats, because titanic iitself was like a lifeboat
4:36 pm
Atalante

if the ship was said to be unsinkable, then unsinkable it was
4:38 pm
72 Temple Owl

ata, i vageuly remember being taught somehow that that attitude fllew in the face of god, being such an extreme manifestation of human's pride.
4:38 pm
elder

yes, such great belief in the wonders of boat building.
4:38 pm
Mad Giraffe

They never said it was 100% unsinkable you know.
4:39 pm
Atalante

and it makes much more sense to me, looking at it through that shift in world view. it's just strange ... and interesting how different and how similar times are
4:39 pm
elder

I can never understand how people thought that a huge thing made out of metal could not sink. But I think that about planes.
4:39 pm
Atalante

lol yes!
4:40 pm
elder

Dropping rather than sinking.
4:40 pm
Mad Giraffe

Yeah the planes are astounding.
4:41 pm
Mad Giraffe

Especially if you've seen them in real life.
4:41 pm
elder

Seen and been in the things ..
4:42 pm
Atalante

far too many times
4:42 pm
Mad Giraffe

Also walked on ground zero?
4:42 pm
Atalante

no, but the english equivalent, yes
4:43 pm
elder

Mad. not there but others places of great sadness.
4:44 pm
Mad Giraffe

I've only ever walked under a plane, never been in one really. But I guess I'm not missing out.
4:45 pm
Atalante

lol. planes are cool
4:45 pm
elder

so cool, you need blankets a times.:)
4:45 pm
Atalante

I've flown in everything from commercial planes to RAF Tornadoes to helicopters to baby Danish army planes that felt like they were falling apart
4:46 pm
Atalante

oh gosh, yes
4:46 pm
Mad Giraffe

Heh nice.
4:46 pm
elder

Shudders... smaller the plane the worse it is.
4:46 pm
Mad Giraffe

More of an actual experience of flight you mean.
4:47 pm
elder

Ata, How did you get to fly on Tornadoes
4:47 pm
Atalante

my father was a pilot, then I was in Air Cadets for 7 years. I've been in all sorts of things. All fun.
4:47 pm
Atalante

It was one of the Air Cadet summer camp prizes for best cadet of camp
4:47 pm
elder

How exciting Ata. What memories.
4:48 pm
Atalante

oh yes, air cadets was *amazing*. we had such fun
4:49 pm
72 Temple Owl

7:14 pm
phandmd

7:14 pm
nDanLia

7:14 pm
milesndale

wow, it must have been good.
7:14 pm
herinfernallady

OH that is wonderful Phan. Does he have home ec in school?
7:15 pm

7:15 pm
phandmd

No. no home ec
7:15 pm
bernadette

7:15 pm
phandmd

7:15 pm
phandmd

They cooked pancakes
7:16 pm
phandmd

come to think of it, he has been on a cooking spree today, he made waffles for breakfast this morning
7:16 pm
phandmd

(they were out of school today for a teacher's work day)
7:16 pm
milesndale

I don't think there are traditional prerequisites, as culinary school is all in one, not a four-year type school
7:16 pm
herinfernallady

We have this wonderful book called Cookery the Australian way ITs a fantastic cook book for beginers
7:16 pm
LadyNatts

that's great, Phan! I wish my son had learned to (enjoy) cooking. He can do it, but he's too lazy. Now, I fear for what he eats (or doesn't).
7:17 pm
nDanLia

feels great to create things
7:17 pm
jillibus

*f*i*r*e*w*o*r*k*s*
7:17 pm
milesndale

I think you could go not knowing how to boil water, and they would teach you, although most people who go do know how to do things in the kitchen
7:17 pm
nDanLia

yeah jilli
7:17 pm
milesndale

awesome jilli
7:17 pm
phandmd

Well, he did have a good example in his father, he cooks all meals when he is home.
7:17 pm
LadyNatts

yay, jilli!
7:18 pm
phandmd

good job Jilli
7:18 pm
milesndale

I like it when my bf cooks for me, but my mom taught me and I'm pretty good. I make desserts more often
7:18 pm
nDanLia

bernadette - help key on top; also helpful is lickety's list under friends of babble lower left top center col - open in new window

LadyNatts

7:19 pm
phandmd

Our school system has a career and technology center and they have a cullinary class. He might do that in HS, he has to wait until 11th grade though
7:19 pm
milesndale

bernadette, no words under four letters--that's a biggie.
7:19 pm
phandmd

yes, have fun at bridge
7:19 pm
nDanLia

sc 5 12 is 5 letter word whose tiles add to 6 - the 5 doubles [word value is (total tile values)*(#tiles - 3)]
7:19 pm
milesndale

but that's a rule in boggle too I think
7:20 pm
jillibus

I'd like to, natts, but my partner is a bit of a dragon -- however, flosey will be there, as well as some other pals
7:20 pm
herinfernallady

Phan i think kids should be taught to cook in year 7
7:20 pm
milesndale

use the stats on the bottom to ascertain what to start with, and you will see them blue out when you finish one
7:20 pm
nDanLia

switches to new grid at 12a'nn' central US ti'nn'e [a key is broken, the double is letter twixt L & N]
7:20 pm
herinfernallady

Phan http://tinyurl.com/6cj9d8 this is what we use
7:21 pm
milesndale

you get fireworks in the stats box if you finish the grid
7:21 pm
nDanLia

no pts in boggle
7:21 pm
milesndale

right--but you can
7:22 pm
milesndale

can't use three letter ones?
7:22 pm
milesndale

it's been a while since I played that
7:22 pm
nDanLia

ah, got 'ya
7:23 pm
phandmd

He would probably enjoy that, Lady
7:23 pm
herinfernallady

It is in metric not pounds
7:24 pm
phandmd

of course, we are the only weirdos when it comes to weight and measures
7:24 pm
milesndale

wait, the brits have the "stone". That is not metric
7:25 pm
herinfernallady

My copy of the book is so well loved it has notes all the way through it and the cover has fallen off
7:25 pm
nDanLia

the virtues of keeping an independent spirit
7:25 pm
phandmd

but isn't that only used for human weight?
7:25 pm
milesndale

do they have scales that change stone into kg?
7:26 pm
nDanLia

you can print either on a scale - even overlap
7:26 pm
herinfernallady

yes
7:26 pm
milesndale

1 stone would be less than 7 kg
7:26 pm
herinfernallady

yes we do. We are not that far behind in the dark ages.
7:27 pm
phandmd

is the yes in answer to my question?
7:27 pm
phandmd

maybe not
7:27 pm
herinfernallady

I don't use stone for human weight we use pounds
7:27 pm
herinfernallady

or kilos
7:27 pm
milesndale

I never knew how much it weighed until I started watching "You Are What You Eat"
7:27 pm

7:50 pm
withoutavoice89

7:50 pm
LadyNatts

7:50 pm
redturtlehead

but do you think she is having some sort of processing issues with instructions or what was that?
7:50 pm
redturtlehead

rent money is good lady!!!
7:50 pm
withoutavoice89

hooray for chores!
7:50 pm
kje

a & o is not the whole story.... but did you tell her what to do? if she had never had to do it before, she probably didn't know... or else she had undiagnosed delirium
7:51 pm
lil*monkey

hola rojo
7:51 pm
LadyNatts

anyway... off and running... have fun, everyone!
7:51 pm
redturtlehead

Yes, I told her etc and I even pointed to the bathroom which was about 40 feet away...
7:51 pm
kje

very hard to say over the computer red... but yes, she needs to be evaluated for 1) delirium, 2) CVA, 3) dementia
7:51 pm
redturtlehead

I thought it was a bit of dementia or something.
7:52 pm
redturtlehead

I mentioned it to the doctor who called her primary...
7:52 pm
redturtlehead

neither wanted to admit her...
7:52 pm
kje

poor lady, must have been very confused
7:52 pm
redturtlehead

but she did turn out to have a UTI, sooo.
7:52 pm
redturtlehead

redturtlehead

It was a bit funny kje.
7:53 pm
nDanLia

now its just diagnosed?
7:53 pm
kje

the workup can be done outpatient red, and in general, if an older person doesn't absolutely have to be admitted, they are better off not coming in... hospitals are dangerous places for them
7:53 pm
