poor cjmomma!
2:04 am

2:14 am
dcseain

my aunt is a breeder who used to show - she breeds Welsh Springer spaniels, which is why i've heard of him
2:14 am
Atalante

and it also depends whether a brand is particularly known for 1 thing - like Castrol was kept as a brand for all their lubricants
2:14 am
sprite

lol Ata, you think so? I think I am a sucker for smart. They are all going to be cute, no doubt.
2:15 am
dcseain

the shop i go to recently changed from Castrol synthetic to Mobil1.
2:15 am

that is great, seain. He is a very gentle dog too, just like Dana. She wasn't ready for him the first day that they put them together, and he just licked her eyes and was so sweet.
2:15 am

Caya is very cuddly, starting a growing spurt as well now. She has an inflamed eye atm, but the doc prescribed eyedrops and we trust it will be over soon.

2:24 am

Caya... that's a beautiful name
2:24 am

doc wanted to know if she had trouble seeing and if it was restricted to one eye. After that, she prescribed an eyedrop medicine. It seems to work already, jilli.
2:25 am
jillibus

sprite, I just went to your breeder's website -- I see they do all the appropriate tests and the dogs look beautiful
2:25 am
dcseain

oh, wunderbar about the meds
2:25 am

caya is a walking he5. Both kids are.
2:26 am
jillibus

any idea what's in the meds, sprite?
2:26 am
nDanLia

poor dear has had a tough fall
2:27 am
sprite

oh yes jilli, that was one reason to pick this breeder. They are not in it for the money and they take the breed very seriously. They want to make sure only disease-free dogs are used for breeding, so the breed will become healthy again.
2:28 am
sprite

yes she has, nDan. That virus took out a big chunk of her and left her vulnerable to other viruses, I think. She loves to sit and cuddle with me a lot. But she is also enjoying her clubs and sports again, so I think she is on her way to getting better.
2:28 am
jillibus

who are you talking about, nDan?
2:28 am
sprite

it is an antibioticum, jilli, that much I know
2:28 am

ndan was commenting on caya, jill
2:28 am
jillibus

oh, I see -- I thought you meant someone has had a tumble, lol!
2:29 am

we are to use the eyedrops until the inflammation is gone, then for 48 more hours after that.
2:29 am

no um on the end in English, sprite ;)

Haz1558

No, I don't do underwear. Tea towels are easy - and it sterilises them so that they're ready for use in an emergency. Anybody could crash outside my house and I'd be there with my sterilised tea towels.

I was quite amazed the other day. I was working in a charity shop and a family came in. With a girl about 10-11. While her mum was shopping she sat in the changing room and in there was a set of steps. She called her mum over and with a straight face she said ' thats my stepladder, I once had a real one but it left home when I was three'!!!I think I met a p[otential comedian!!

that was a bit of overkill with six police cars
7:56 am

NonoNanette

Lynn did you find your al4?
8:44 am
Danielita1

thanks for the hint..i got it
8:45 am
hurshy

it does have a double consonant, jan, this is just an alternate spelling.
8:46 am
hurshy

and i don't see why some things can't be more ar6 than other things
8:46 am
jan

Me neither. Many of these words are far ar/21-er than others.
8:47 am
hurshy

so, i've got ca8 and ch8, what do other people have?
8:47 am
wvteach

there are 3 different ca 8 words
8:48 am
jan

The other 2 are ca's--both ar/21 and both similar with different endings. (I slunk off to a2z to find them...)
8:49 am
wvteach

they are NOT normal wormals words like the other two 8's
8:49 am
jan

And, in penance, I looked up the first--latin for heel bone.
8:50 am

Normal has no place in Babble.
8:54 am

can you clue them, jan or wv?
8:56 am

I certainly will. Ordinarily, I wouldn't get to go to such things. As I am a lowly civilian secretary. However, the Sergeant begged off because he has to interview a child porn perv.
9:20 am
hurshy

ick
9:21 am
NonoNanette

should just lock the perv. up and forget about him
9:22 am
Judi

Ick, indeed. Dumb ar4/4 took his laptop into Staples to have it serviced. There was kiddie porn shortcuts all over the desktop.
9:22 am
hurshy

9:22 am
NonoNanette

9:22 am
hurshy

9:23 am

9:23 am
dcseain

9:24 am
hurshy

although nothing beats the guys who once broke into a house, found a polaroid, didn't know about them (i think this was early 90's), took a pic of themselves, thought it didn't work cause it was all grey, took off, leaving the pic in the house they robbed.
9:24 am
NonoNanette

9:25 am
dcseain

but they ae not as common as they were decades ago
9:26 am
hurshy

right but, this was like 15 years ago, when they were still relatively common
9:26 am
dcseain

true
9:26 am
Judi

I know they don't even make Polaroids any more. I doubt film is available either.
9:26 am

9:28 am
Judi

And the film was very expensive. Huge cartridge that you had to load like an 8-track. Amazing how clunky and crude it seems compared to the technology we have now.
9:28 am
dcseain

polaroids specifically :) oh, what bother cross

Ah, but every show cocker I have seen was dumb as a post because of breeding. Also usually quite ill.
10:15 am

working cockers are cockers really, but they are somewhat different in shape and size, and they are bred to be working dogs

A young Chinese woman was left partially deaf following a passionate kiss from her boyfriend.
The 20-something from Zhuhai in Guangdong province arrived at hospital having completely lost the hearing in her left ear, said local reports.
The incident prompted a series of articles in the local media warning of the dangers of excessive kissing. "While kissing is normally very safe, doctors advise people to proceed with caution," wrote the China Daily.

I am enjoying this student's presentation on biodiesel from algae...
1:01 pm
Atalante

algae are the coolest things
1:01 pm
Atalante

what type of algae is he using? blue-green?
1:03 pm
Vicuna

Hello, at least for a bit.
1:03 pm
stidmama

he used a special kind of fresh-water algae... I will try to ask when he pauses. Some students just know SO MUCH!
1:03 pm
bichon

Ata, you name was in yesterday's New York Times crossword puzzle. It was spelled with an "a" at the end though
1:03 pm
stidmama

he just said almost any algae can work, though. but his experiment used just the one.
1:03 pm
Atalante

VII!IIIIIIII!!!III!I!I!I!I!I!I!I!I!I!I

1:04 pm

kwaker? Do I know you?
1:04 pm
stidmama

love that the left-over algal biomass can be used for animal feed!
1:04 pm
Vicuna

By any chance?
1:04 pm
Atalante

algae can be used for *anything* lol
1:04 pm
kwakerbkul

Yes, you do - pay attention to the name...
1:05 pm
stidmama

oh. chlamydomonas, chlorella, haematococus, dunale.... he switched slides too fast
1:05 pm
Vicuna

I figured as much! lol Welcome to Babble!
1:05 pm
stidmama

now he is describing his research...
1:05 pm
Atalante

Chlamydomonas! Yay!!
1:05 pm
kwakerbkul

You are awesome - I'm loving this!
1:05 pm
stidmama

he used the Chlorella protohecoides for his experiment
1:05 pm
Atalante

ok, explain, Vi!
1:05 pm
Vicuna

Hey, everyone, kwaker is a friend of mine that I have brought into the Babble of no return!
1:06 pm
Atalante

makes sense, I guess
1:06 pm
Atalante

hi kwaker!
1:06 pm
stidmama

oh dear.... the experiment failed.
1:06 pm
Vicuna

Wah ha ha ha! (evil laugh)
1:06 pm
stidmama

he had problems with his media, didn't have enough trace minerals or any B12.
1:06 pm

hello kwaker, and welcome to babble!
1:07 pm

Although I cannot approve of your spelling, Mr BKul!
1:07 pm
cybernan

nm -- another bablet
1:07 pm
Atalante

well it sounds the same!
1:07 pm
stidmama

well yes, but we also learned (several times this quarter) that sometimes the failures are opportunities for even greater learning.
1:08 pm
Atalante

usually the case, stiddy. things can work too well and be an anticlimax
1:08 pm
BabbleRabble

success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm
1:08 pm
Vicuna

What grade is this student, stidmama? Sounds pretty sophisitcated.
1:08 pm
stidmama

He is a remarkably articulate, self-possessed, capable young man. only a couple years older than my elder son, he really will go far in life.
1:08 pm
EspritdJean

I'd like clues for the 8's please, from katie :-p
1:08 pm
bubba218

ne + your hand is attached to the wr***
1:09 pm
Atalante

unfortunately, all those mean little in academia, most of the time
1:09 pm
bubba218

ca8, 50 x2 is the latin name for the heel bone, opne is singular the other is plural
1:09 pm
Atalante

jean? how are you?
1:09 pm
stidmama

I have really enjoyed this program, and will miss it next quarter. BUT ... I am also really looking forward to the linguistics program I will be in starting in January. That's more my field
1:09 pm
kwakerbkul

Hey Vi, can I help it if I am down with my bad self?
1:09 pm
Vicuna

Oooh, go linguistics!
1:09 pm
EspritdJean

I'm still feeling drained. I didn't do it yesterday
1:09 pm
stidmama

yes, but at our school (see profile and icon) students have great encouragement and are often first author on papers.
1:10 pm
Atalante

*hugshugshugs*
1:10 pm
Vicuna

Yeah, that's you, kwaker. You're so bad! =P
1:10 pm
kwakerbkul

Thanks to all for your good wishes. Wouldn't you know, I have to go... but I'll be back! (I hope that's a promise and not a threat.)
1:10 pm
stidmama

YES! will be studying lushootseed some (the local native language)
1:10 pm
EspritdJean

tyty. I don't know if you were around when I came back and said my car would not start, dead battery
1:10 pm
stidmama

oh Esprit! *sad and worried mama look*
1:10 pm
EspritdJean

I took that as a call from the governor
1:10 pm
stidmama

see you soon kwaker
1:10 pm
Atalante

as they should be! but 1 paper does not a career make. Academia doesn't depend on cleverness or papers
1:11 pm
Vicuna

See you later, kwaker! No matter how you try to get away, Babble will draw you back!
1:11 pm
stidmama

:-D true, but the encouragement is wonderful. Evergreen sends a HUGE number (by percent -- we're a small school) to medical schools and grad schools like Harvard and such...
1:12 pm
Atalante

oh - we're still talking undergrad level? I thought you were talking grad students
1:12 pm
stidmama

oh no -- undergrad, I am doing post-bac work right now
1:12 pm
Atalante

encouragement is very nice. Government grants don't give a stuff how much encouragement someone had :P Academia is a place of disillusionment, maybe
1:13 pm
stidmama

will apply to the master's in teaching program for next year
1:13 pm
Atalante

oh ok, they've still got a few years doing their PhDs to get disillusioned then looooool
1:13 pm
stidmama

academia can truly SUCK. but if you love your subject, I think it's not bad. Me? I want to teach. That makes all this bearable
1:14 pm
Vicuna

What/who do you want to teach, stidma?
1:14 pm
stidmama

apparently there is someone who proposes that some biofuels can actually be carbon Negative...
1:14 pm
cybernan

10 :)
1:14 pm
Atalante

it's not that bad? lol. the problem with academia is that you can love your subject and still not be able to work in that field because of money / placements / tenure issues at universities / people not liking your PhD supervisor etc
1:14 pm
stidmama

I want to teach middle school humanities (english and history), but also will be qualified to teach elementary school

1:15 pm

and when i say academia, I mean university level research / lab research etc. teaching at other levels, working for the government etc are different matters
1:15 pm
Snoop Dog

middle school sucks
1:16 pm

oh -- I wouldn't get a PhD for the world... my friend with her chem fud stays home with the kids. The only jobs available were in industry, and FAR from where she and her husband live.

you are very welcome. Stupid grid today, lots of pretend words. This is the hardest grid I have seen yet. Granted, I am still a newbie
1:30 pm

1:30 pm

what can dr. g actually do to quiet trolls, and do they happen often?

1:32 pm

that is why we are often reluctant to interact with new people ... trolls are almost invariably new names; though a few of us more established folk can be trollish at times
1:32 pm

1:54 pm
Trifioso

hey ata, wanna hear my good news of the day? I went to the bank to open a checking account in my own name, and I got a free cooler with a radio in it, to take to the beach in summer. yay me!

Trifioso

i have to take my joy where i can find it....
1:55 pm
Atalante

1:56 pm
Trifioso

oh, hey - has anyone seen "australia?" I was thinking of going tonight whilst the kids are at dinner with their dad, but I am not sure if it is a tear-jerker movie or not. Not really in the mood for more crying
1:56 pm
dcseain

no one here likes to think about the winter. most of us see it as something to be endured.
1:56 pm
Atalante

it's meant to be teary, someone was saying yesterday
1:56 pm
flosey

sorry trif, haven't seen it
1:57 pm
Trifioso

hmmm. well, staring at hugh jackman might be good
1:57 pm
Atalante

harpjane

I'm so excited, I got my digital tv box !

2:01 pm
Atalante

2:01 pm
harpjane

yup, we get our tv through the airwaves so this will mean we can still watch tv next year....
2:01 pm
Trifioso

ata! how do you feel about that????
2:01 pm
dcseain

good gracious, ata
2:01 pm
harpjane

sounds a bit forward to me ata
2:01 pm
dcseain

that's a silly move on his part for a short chat after so long a gap
2:01 pm
Trifioso

wait a second - he isn't an irish guy from boston, is he?
2:01 pm
Haz1558

Smug. She's bound to feel smug.
2:02 pm
dcseain

why do you suppose that, haz?
2:02 pm
harpjane

is the ta7 a plural?
2:02 pm
Haz1558

Because she's Atalante. She is smug.
2:02 pm
dcseain

2:03 pm
dcseain

2:03 pm
Atalante

and smug of course :P
2:04 pm
Haz1558

I'd check out if he'd been spending time at the Home for the Bewildered. Not that it isn't understandable that he should retain feelings but 15 years and a short chat?
2:04 pm
Trifioso

omg, this grid BLOWS. I finally get my sister to play yesterday, and then today we get THSI
2:05 pm
Trifioso

she is NEVER gonna come back now
2:05 pm
dcseain

and if he's spent 15 yrs pining after you, goodness he needs mental help. Time to move on, dude.
2:05 pm
Haz1558

You'd be surprised. Some people get addicted really quickly.
2:06 pm
dcseain

yes, i imagine i would be surprised. sigh
2:06 pm
Atalante

I'm obviously just soooo wonderful!!!
2:06 pm
dcseain

well, yes, but stil, sheesh.
2:07 pm
Atalante

I like men spending 15 years pining over me! it's ego-boosting!
2:07 pm
Trifioso

sounds like gum on your shoe, to me, ata
2:07 pm
Haz1558

He sounds like a bit of a dead loss to me. Hardly Action Man!
2:08 pm
Atalante

lol I don't intend on talking to him anymore, after that little outburst. not fair on him
2:08 pm
dcseain

sound plan, ata, and i agree, haz
2:08 pm
Haz1558

Poor man. Another 15 years of pining ahead.
2:09 pm
garyandjulie

2:09 pm
Atalante

2:09 pm
FMitch

Sounds rather creepy, if you ask me.

Haz1558

Scotsmen are quite intense.
2:09 pm

2:09 pm
Trifioso

2:14 pm
Dorens

2:14 pm
Atalante

very little, dc
2:15 pm
Atalante

she's been in the house for the bewildered
2:15 pm
dcseain

huh. i tought it was an East NA thing. here, lyme is quite common.
2:15 pm
Haz1558

No, Dorens, I'm usually on earlier in the day. I was taking a little break in order to keep a low profile, so to speak. I was actually taking a masterclass in sewing but I knew no-one would believe me.
2:15 pm
Atalante

hahahaha *not laughing*
2:15 pm
FMitch

and by the powers of babble magic *serves tea to all*
2:16 pm
dcseain

oh, what fun, haz!
2:16 pm
Dorens

no why would they believe that? not dramatic enough
2:16 pm
Haz1558

Many regulars know that I have needle and thread issues. We don't get on.
2:16 pm
dcseain

ty, FM *butter cookie anyone?*
2:16 pm
FMitch

'cos Haz hates anything to do with needles and threads!
2:17 pm
FMitch

yum dc :)
2:17 pm
Haz1558

The Home for the Bewildered is MUCH more likely. Or helping George Clooney learn his lines.
2:17 pm
dcseain

machine sewing has little relation to needles, and only modederate relation to thread, really.
2:17 pm
Atalante

they get on MG and old trikes
2:17 pm
Dorens

did you bake them dc?
2:17 pm
Atalante

*like MG and old trikes
2:17 pm

2:19 pm
FMitch

*sits back down quietly*
2:19 pm
dcseain

oh, sorry. i do that sometimes thanks to great-grandma and grandma. their native language is OVS
2:19 pm
Atalante

*everyone stares at FM*
2:19 pm
dcseain

indeed it can, FM
2:19 pm
Haz1558

(I'm picturing FM with a wild look in her eye and organ music blaring as she free-sews)
2:19 pm
Atalante

the phaaaaaantom of the sewing machine is here ....
2:19 pm
FMitch

*pulls blankie over head and hides*
2:19 pm
dcseain

ROFL haz :D

dcseain

2:20 pm
Dorens

haz that made me laugh out loud, literally, and then coughing fit ensued
2:20 pm
Haz1558

Would Andrew Lloyd Webber be able to make something of it? He needs inspiration for Eurovision.
2:20 pm
Atalante

I'm just looking at Hobbit nad Spangle in their pics. How come Haz gets a quiet, clean, tidy spaniel?
2:20 pm
dcseain

object verb subject, mirror image of SVO of English
2:20 pm

Oh Dorens. I'm a danger to babblers sometimes.

Hi Alby
2:28 pm

Can't leave a bathroom door open around Pug's - the kitty (we've taken to calling her "Beast!!") shreds rolls of toilet paper faster than you can blink an eye!!
2:28 pm
dcseain

he grooms you back, lady
2:28 pm
flosey

my cat has suddenly refused to come into the house - he's around, comes for food but waits for me to put it outside the door - don't understand, he still likes to be patted, etc. but outside only
2:28 pm

2:29 pm
flosey

2:30 pm
herinfernallady

2:31 pm
dcseain

sorry for teh 10 add a cons to the 4 before it
2:31 pm
Haz1558

ar6/21 the second is a word meaning ordinary, the first is structured the same but ends in a different vowel.
2:31 pm
flosey

no herin, but our neighbour/helper is here a lot, but cat seems very friendly with him
2:31 pm
dcseain

ar6 - places where sports events are held
2:31 pm
herinfernallady

Trifs it gets possessed. DC I haven't been able to open more than one tab as someone in the house used all my 5 gig to download a lot of crap
2:31 pm
dcseain

ar6 - past of the verb, as in he has ar6
2:32 pm
herinfernallady

Hi met. I don't see you around much
2:32 pm
dcseain

it's weird to me that you have download limits, an i forget that
2:32 pm
MetFan

TY DC and Haz
2:32 pm
Haz1558

You're welcome, Met.
2:32 pm
Atalante

possessed? are we back with the Bewildered?
2:32 pm
MetFan

Hi herin. I mostly lurk, that is when I do get to play
2:33 pm
Haz1558

The Bewildered aren't possessed, they're just adjusting to different standards of reality.
2:33 pm
Trifioso

huh? don't get the past tense...past tense of the sports event place?
2:33 pm
herinfernallady

I don't. It drives me nuts. Luckily he redeemed himself by bringing home a gift from a work supplier. :D (which he didn't have to do)
2:33 pm
dcseain

Hi bichon. I believe we've talked before, some time ago.
2:34 pm
erica1126

thx.
2:34 pm
Trifioso

erica! looking PRO today!
2:34 pm
dcseain

or, met do you mean 1st 2 ar6s - they are different by final vowel - weird/old/mysterious
2:34 pm
erica1126

eh- yeah. looks can be deceiving.
2:35 pm
herinfernallady

Yes. Ata. He got a supplier a multi million dollar deal. They brought him Chanel for the lady (snort) of the house and Remy Martin for him
2:35 pm
bichon

Yes, Met fan. Did you have a Bichon at one time?
2:35 pm
dcseain

bichon, welcome back
2:35 pm
MetFan

Sometimes. herin, if I don't lurk, it takes forever to do a grid.
2:35 pm
MetFan

Yes, a Bichon-poodle mix
2:35 pm
dcseain

nice of them to think of ou at all, lady
2:35 pm

I've been in and out. Trip to Costco and two dog walks
2:36 pm
MetFan

LOVE COSTCO!!!!!
2:36 pm
Trifioso

my friend sally, a realtor, was kvetzing today about a lawyer she did a HUGE deal for, and he sent her a paltry $10 fruit assortment for a thank you. lovely
2:37 pm
herinfernallady

Trifs some companies don't know how to do business.
2:37 pm
bichon

Kvetzing as in complaining?
2:37 pm
Trifioso

yup
2:37 pm
Atalante

costco is HELL! but wonderful
2:37 pm
erica1126

trif- i work for attorneys. they are either generous or draining. no middle ground.
2:37 pm
Trifioso

wow, I am betting there was some excitement at costco today!
2:37 pm
herinfernallady

It does help that the supplier walked in at the right time when his company had bought out the entire state of supplies
2:38 pm
Dorens

costco is the best - just don't like the lines at the end
2:38 pm
bichon

Costco's not so bad if you go on a weekday, early. If you time it right, you can eat their samples for lunch
2:38 pm
Trifioso

erica - do they handle domestic law, and are they in massachusetts, by any chance?
2:38 pm
EspritdJean

kvetching
2:38 pm
MetFan

So many people at Costco near me have no manners when manipulating the aisles, they park DEAD CENTER so you can't get around them, but I love shopping there for the bargains!!!!
2:38 pm
bichon

Trif, why wa their excitement at Costco today? iT LOOKED PRETTY CALM TO ME
2:38 pm
Trifioso

Bichon, that makes me laugh, I must admit. You buy food that is hermetically sealed in six ways, just in case it has been tampered with, and then eat food a stranger hands you in the store.
2:39 pm
Dorens

and their food is divine
2:39 pm
erica1126

trif- sorry, pal. i am in ((TEXAS)). domestic- do you mean American or family?
2:39 pm
bichon

sorry for the caps, damned laptop
2:39 pm
MetFan

They never sample-ize anything I'd put in my mouth!!
2:39 pm
Trifioso

family law. I need a shark of a divorce attorney, me thinks
2:39 pm
bichon

I had a sample of instant mashed potatoes that tasted like the real McCoy
2:40 pm
erica1126

ew. i wouldn't work in that area if i was held at gunpoint.
2:40 pm
herinfernallady

Is Costco like Aldi?
2:40 pm
Dorens

i think i draw the line at instant mashed potatoes
2:40 pm
periwinkle

Trif, did you mean kvetching as in complaining?
2:40 pm
MetFan

So do I
2:40 pm
erica1126

i can definitely check with some sources, trif.
2:40 pm
Trifioso

oh, I must admit, I was an instant spud holdout, and then the DH bought some and they were really good! Have used them in a few emergencies
2:40 pm
dcseain

has it an other meaning, peri?
2:40 pm
Trifioso

yes, peri, why did I spell it wrong? that's normal, for me
2:41 pm
periwinkle

yes, you spelled it incorrectly but I knew what you meant
2:41 pm
Trifioso

with my luck it probably means "mother's vagina" or something....
2:41 pm
bichon

What is Aldi? herin, they are opening one in my town
2:41 pm
periwinkle

no other meaning that I am aware of
2:41 pm
dcseain

no, lady. Costco is a warehouse store offering large sizes.
2:42 pm
dcseain

Aldi is a deep-discount chain that is bare-bones, limited selection, and very cheap. They are affiliated with Trader Joes here in teh States.
2:42 pm
periwinkle

Costco is like BJ's
2:42 pm
Trifioso

herin - if you should need a 5-gallon container of mayo, Costco is your place
2:42 pm
periwinkle

don't like Aldi
2:42 pm
EspritdJean

and Sam's Club
2:42 pm
bichon

Oh cool! Someplace in Middletown that's interesting
2:42 pm
MetFan

LOVE BJ'S TOO!!!
2:42 pm
periwinkle

Aldi's near me has mostly canned goods and some produce
2:42 pm
EspritdJean

and Big Lots
2:42 pm
Dorens

i love trader joe's
2:42 pm
dcseain

Aldi is not like Trader Joes, though you'll find some TJs proucts there
2:43 pm
EspritdJean

Aldi's in the USA is a lower end chain store

I could do with some worklessness....
3:51 pm
jacq

i suffer from worklessness
3:51 pm
stidmama

but first I need the education so I can be workless in a field I enjoy...
3:51 pm
Vicuna

Worklessness seems to me that it would in reality be quite different from unemployment.
3:51 pm
stidmama

is the second CA 8 similar to the first?
3:51 pm
jacq

nods, worklessness is more hopeless
3:51 pm
jacq

yes mama, change last vowel
3:51 pm
Vicuna

My first ar6 is past tense of ar5, but I make no guarantees.
3:51 pm

change the last vowel Stid
3:52 pm

3:52 pm
stidmama

thanks lynxxx and jac
3:52 pm
Vicuna

Well, when you're unemployed you may still have no shortage of work -- family, looking for job, dealing with house repairs, etc...
3:52 pm
jacq

unemployment is the inability to find any or suitable employment, worklessness is what we're approaching where employers are tightening belts and not employing, no jobs
3:53 pm
KatieMcG

worklessness is the description given to those who have had generations without a job as they have never been employed to be unemployed. in some communities there is no expectation that you will ever work
3:53 pm
Atalante

Ahh, I get it Katie. Well, that makes more sense. I thought it was being used merely as a pointless synonym.
3:54 pm

my grandfather always says that he is not UNemployed. He is always employed (doing something) -- just doesn't get paid for it...

I wouldn't mind at least getting credit toward retirement katie... you know by the time I finish my master's and get back to work it will have been 18 years since my "work" counted for retirement?
3:58 pm
stidmama

the tr 6/18 I have is latin "three" + first three letters of nutrition drink ***ure
3:58 pm
KatieMcG

I know, they keep talking about recognising it but truth be told I don't think they can afford it
3:58 pm
jacq

mama, doesn't being a stay at home mum give you credits?
3:59 pm
Vicuna

tr6/18 - prefix for 3 + Several Big parliamentary clocks minus B
3:59 pm
jacq

it does here, if you recieve benefits for children, like tax credits, you are awarded national insurance credits at the highest rate, to protect your pension
3:59 pm
stidmama

no jacq, it doesn't. I used to have sufficient credits with social security to get benefits if I got injured or reached retirement age, I now need to work for ten years to regain those
3:59 pm
KatieMcG

are you jacq, I didn't know!
3:59 pm
Vicuna

Intriguing, jacq!

the United States is not truly family friendly, despite the rhetoric from the right-wingers
4:00 pm
Atalante

but staying at home trying to earn a living as an artist gives you no NI credit at all!
4:00 pm

yes katie, and if you are a carer, getting carers allownace you get the same benefit
