funniest thing of all is, the benefit doctor claims I could still work, but only 2 hours a day under serious limitations, all stated in his report.
The work expert called me and said, well, the doctor claims that, but there is no job in the whole world where you can work 2 hours a day PLUS meet the limitations the doctor ordered. So you are going to get a full benefit anyway.

he started out as a comedy actor on aussie tv... was such an amazing success!
3:49 am
herinfernallady

Yep/. He also did the movie Chopper
3:49 am
mrpresident

today's video is based on some Mad TV stuff I found... I am 'fond' of this video cause it is a really good take off of 'lady marmalade' from moulin rouge.
3:50 am
sprite

wow 2nd 8 found. I might find them all before the end yet.
3:50 am
sprite

so it is definitely worth finishing today, mrP! Thanks for the motivation. I seem to need it, am stuck.
3:50 am
mrpresident

but... my fav character in mad tv is lorraine.... she is very very wrong! you have to check her out on you tube
3:51 am

oh you will get through it sprite! you are the babble angel

not lately I haven't, mrP, lol. I have spoken my mind. Very devilish behaviour on babble!

i must say though, alot of the words are weirdos

yep look like it going like the clappers before it goes down again
3:56 am
mrpresident

just read that sprite... but not really sure what is happening.... is asking for clues becoming a problem??
3:56 am
herinfernallady

oh
3:59 am
sprite

of course not, mrP. Just the endless demanding of lists of 2 letter words for the last 40-odd words someone needs. Can't seem to play with chat open anymore without getting a 100 clues shoved down my throat lately. And when I dare say I really don't like it, I get the answer that "we cannot all be as smart as you, sprite". Which is rubbish.
4:00 am
sprite

irritating, lobo, that connection problem. Hope it will be solved soon. Do you know what is causing it?
4:01 am
loredana

sprite not sure had a quick look but time doesnt allow at the moment
4:01 am
sprite

I see, lobo, and I totally understand. Solving computer problems always takes a lot more time than one expects.
4:01 am
loredana

of course as you know we come here much later than usual to miss the clues and now the time is reduced
4:02 am
sprite

yup indeed, lobo. But the chat is worth it. I really like being here today.
4:02 am
loredana

its great today lets enjoy
4:03 am
sprite

well the good side is, mrP, that when lickety's clues are on, the problem is almost solved.

Sally-catlover

Sorry, Merk, no you aren't alone. I was on a roll just now. At least I find the words today can be built on each other.
4:43 am
Merk

Isn't that the truth. And there is a lot of Caribbean booze among them.
4:44 am
Sally-catlover

Don't think I've found the booze yet. But the mu words are lovely.

Oh I don't go in sequence - where the fancy takes me, at least at first.

vermont really lucked out. Snow, but no ice.
6:16 am
KatieMcG

just gone into your profile and seen the larger photo, it's a good job you are in america otherwise we could end up with more cats in the house!!
6:16 am
KatieMcG

I just saw about the ice storms on our news
6:17 am
cliffopa

my mom lives a mile from me and lost power for 2 days. luckily she had a wood stove that kept the house warm. and she could still cook because she has a gas stove.
6:18 am
Eva

I have a friend who is living in the midst of it in Western Massachusetts, hunkered down trying to keep the pipes from freezing using just wood heat. They aren't supposed to get power back for up to 6 days, and lost a lot of their trees.
6:22 am
cliffopa

10 years ago, during the last big ice storm in this area, we went without power for 7 days. the worst part was having to obtain large buckets of water in order to flush the toilets. i'm thankful i didn't have to go through that again.
6:23 am
Eva

and somehow during power failures someone always spills a can of peaches, so something terribly sticky, the very first day. I remember having to drive to a motel, 6 of us, check in for a couple of hours (the desk clerk looked at us a bit strangely) just so we could all take showers.
6:23 am
KatieMcG

OMG I don't know how I could cope without power for that long
6:24 am
Eva

We're going to get rain tomorrow or the day after and I'm dreading it because on top of the snow it will just became an ice shell.
6:25 am
KatieMcG

I think I would never leave the house!
6:26 am
Eva

well sometimes I don't leave for a day or two...or just clamp on cleats on my boots and walk down to the store for some company.
6:29 am
cliffopa

well, i had better stop babbling and go clean out litter boxes (and play with kittens!)

80% of middle ear infections go away with no antibiotic treatment at all, so antibiotics are only advised for kids with persistent pain despite Tylenol or ibuprofen AND with signs of an infection. Many kids camplain/cry but it is just pressure and plugging.

7:48 am

well, he had one a month ago now that was about to burst and he was screaming during hte night, so i think that's why he was put on them for it back then. then it recurred 4 weeks later (last week) so thus the repeat.

Thanks to information I found on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website, just because an animal is white (when it normally isn’t that color) doesn’t mean that it’s an albino. Conversely, an albino animal doesn’t have to be totally white, either.

9:30 am
72 Temple Owl

except babble of course. pardon me
9:30 am
Atalante

I was being sympathetic! Saying they were evil ppl!
9:30 am
Dachef

in fact "every little helps" was stolen by tesco from me. It was a nickname from an old girlfriend. Not sure exactly what she meant, but she seemed to find it hilarious.
9:31 am
Haz1558

Poor Dachef. You're well rid.
9:31 am
Scrabbler

Poor dachef.
9:31 am
Dachef

see - sympathy vote works every time. ;)

Anybody have i words from the 4th column, or the lone T?
9:32 am

I draw the line at clearing up dribble.
9:32 am

Blue ones, Dachef.

9:33 am
Dachef

not allowed to take the blue ones anymore.
9:33 am

9:35 am
Scrabbler

TY, Ata!
9:36 am
72 Temple Owl

9:40 am
Dachef

we like it in the pb - we have a party in there. And plot our evil plans to take over the world (again).
9:40 am
Haz1558

That's what I was thinking, Ata. We only pretend to make mistakes to keep the riff-raff company.
9:40 am
Atalante

9:40 am
72 Temple Owl

hell go for it. we could use osme lend lease here at the moment.

You want some economic help from dear Gordon and darling Alastair?
9:41 am
Atalante

9:41 am
Atalante

hy do we always have chancellors with eyebrows of doom?
9:41 am
72 Temple Owl

lol
9:41 am
Scrabbler

I must grab a snack--skiing will commence in a bit and I need to be fueled up.
9:41 am
Haz1558

I know. Denis Healey set the trend with the eyebrows.
9:41 am
72 Temple Owl

scrabs you are amazing all that engery.
9:42 am
Atalante

then Lamont
9:42 am
Scrabbler

We need all of the help we can get, UKers. America is in deep trouble.
9:42 am
Haz1558

Would you believe that I discussed Denis Healey's eyebrows in my A-level French oral?
9:42 am
Atalante

loooool
9:42 am
72 Temple Owl

at least you don't have a smirker.
9:42 am
Scrabbler

Owl, I am lazy a lot of the time too.

9:42 am
Atalante

c'est vrai!
9:43 am
Dachef

I love the fct the the Chancellor is called Darling. Imagine the scope for the jokes in the cabinet meetings? Have you done the budget yet darling? Could you pass the sugar darling?
9:43 am
Atalante

it's pure Blackadder in real life
9:43 am
Haz1558

I know! I bet he gets sick of the jokes.
9:43 am
Dachef

O my God Darling, what have you done?
9:44 am
Atalante

who had better eyebrows - Lamont or Healey?
9:44 am
Haz1558

'That's another fine mess, Darling'
9:44 am
Scrabbler

No Swedish for me.
9:44 am
72 Temple Owl

i will try to find a translator on line
9:44 am
Haz1558

Healey. He used curlers.
9:44 am
Scrabbler

Pre-skiing snack = yogurt. Yummy.
9:45 am
Atalante

I'm showing my age now cos I can't quite remember Denis Healey much *goes to look for pic*
9:45 am
NonoNanette

love yogurt
9:45 am
Dachef

bable fish is a good translator - watch the sentence structure though. I recently used it to translate a Danish book.
9:45 am
Haz1558

He has aged terribly now, Ata.
9:45 am
Atalante

denis healey's are bigger, norman looks mad scientist eviller
9:45 am
Scrabbler

I love using Babel Fish translator!
9:46 am
72 Temple Owl

ty dachef, i want to translate a christmas card. i recognize something that begins with "jule", that's all
9:47 am
72 Temple Owl

i found a swedish card for someone and don't want to send it untranslated - for my sake.
9:47 am

9:48 am
Haz1558

Dachef, why were you translating a Danish book?
9:48 am
Atalante

hmmm. looking up Chancellors now. To my amazement Nigel Lawson actually is almost good looking in a craggy way nowadays
9:48 am
Scrabbler

Go Feather go!
9:48 am
featherbee

lol, "only" 169 left
9:49 am
Dachef

I'm ghostwriting an NLP book on sales - the "author" is a Danish guy who has already writtena book on sales - just wanted some background on him.
9:49 am
72 Temple Owl

gold implements? bird sound?
9:49 am
Scrabbler

Pace yourself, Feather, for an evening of fireworks.
9:50 am
featherbee

yep, a few here, a few there. catching babble in between kid stuff. they're eating lunches now.
9:50 am
Haz1558

I see. Will you be rich and famous and will you remember kindly your babble friends?
9:50 am
Scrabbler

It was the bird sound, Owl--TY. Throw a fish at me!
9:50 am
Dachef

Will I BE rich and famous? I AM rich and famous - have you forgotten?
9:51 am
72 Temple Owl

sorry that was golf implements. and bird sound less final consonant
9:51 am
Scrabbler

Bottom row is grey, 74 remain, and ti4 for a shower.

Self-delusion is good. I prefer it to real life any day, much less boring.
9:52 am
Atalante

how is La Glitterata today?
9:52 am
Dachef

Thankyou Scrabbler, now go and fetch my slippers. My feet are cold.
9:53 am
Haz1558

Nonsense, TO, you're just going for a temporarily minimalist look.
9:53 am
72 Temple Owl

bye scrabs and bye anyone else leaving
9:53 am
Scrabbler

Yes, My Lord, the bear fur or elk fur one, My Lord?
9:53 am
Haz1558

The glittery one is demolishing her tea. When you've not been fed for a week it's good to get your teeth into something.
9:53 am
72 Temple Owl

i could prpbably fill hte room with "stuff". i've come to hate my stiuff as much as i love it
9:53 am
Scrabbler

would you like some hot tea, My Lord?
9:53 am
Dachef

Actually, all the work I'm doing at the moment is for the American/Canadian market, so I'm much more likely to be rich and famous there.
9:54 am
Atalante

I hope it's just gruel
9:54 am
Haz1558

You're ripe for a visit from the 'Cash in the Attic' people.
9:54 am
72 Temple Owl

ooh dachef, i can't await to come to the book signing
9:54 am
Scrabbler

Alrighty, I must get ready for skiing. BBL.
9:54 am
Haz1558

Gruel with the occasional carrot for fibre.
9:54 am
72 Temple Owl

bye scrabs.
9:54 am
Dachef

unfortunately I'm only the ghostwriter. I do all the hard work and someone else takes all the credit.
9:55 am
Atalante

just the odd carrot
9:55 am
72 Temple Owl

haz: i have aasked in babble if anyone would be my agent on ebay. now i will look into the commercial firms who do that.
9:55 am
Atalante

and sprouts when no-one else will eat them
9:55 am
Haz1558

That's life. That's how Jordan's ghostwriters must feel.
9:55 am
Haz1558

You might as well make some money, TO - hope it goes well.
9:55 am
72 Temple Owl

dachef, then can't you come along as his hadnler?
9:56 am
Lizsark

hello :)
9:56 am
Atalante

Liz! Your mutt is in the grid today :)
9:56 am
Dachef

Jordan's ghostwriters should be shot - have you read her book? I doubt she has. Then again, they didn'y have a lot of good material to start with did they.
9:56 am
72 Temple Owl

i am sure there are folks here who are avid resellers.
9:56 am
Lizsark

Hey! So he is Ata :)
9:56 am
flosey

does anyone have a clue for it6 please?
9:56 am
Haz1558

Have I read her book? Excuse me while I laugh hysterically.
9:56 am
Lizsark

but hes not valid :(
9:57 am
Lizsark

Haz! Hello
9:57 am
Haz1558

Hello Liz.
9:58 am
Atalante

poor invalid pup!
9:59 am
Lizsark

I like yor snowmen Flo
9:59 am
Haz1558

Gosh, the relief. I thought you meant Oscar was an invalid (sick) rather than invalid (not valid).
9:59 am
72 Temple Owl

dachef, would you like to have tony bourdain's gig? or are you not thrileed with eating exotica?
9:59 am
72 Temple Owl

well oscar should be valid, if piranha is, then osar should be.
9:59 am
Atalante

unless he's done something we don't know about and is invalid in both ways. always possible with that dog!!
9:59 am
Dachef

Temple, I would love to answer that question, but I'm afraid it made absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
10:00 am
Lizsark

No he's fighting fit today Haz
10:00 am
72 Temple Owl

anthony bourdain has a tv show no rservations, where he travels the world and eats all sorts of stuff.
10:00 am
Haz1558

So is a hypochondriac an invalid invalid?
10:00 am
Atalante

woohoo!
10:00 am
Atalante

what;s he fighting? *suspicious*
10:00 am
Atalante

absolutely!
10:01 am
Lizsark

Only one small incident today. We were in the valley in front of the house playing ball when the farmer suddenly showed up with 6 rams. The rams charged us and Oscar raan away!!!
10:01 am
Dachef

ahhh - sorry, not seen it. Eating exotica not really my thing. I prefer pie and mash actually.
10:01 am
72 Temple Owl

homey stuff, not restaurant sutff. but not stupid stuff like the guy who eats only bugs and brains and the like.
10:01 am
Atalante

looool poor Os!
10:01 am
72 Temple Owl

i mean what's the point of that, really?
10:01 am
Dachef

I'm not in the restaurant business anymore - the het was too much so I got out of the kitchen.
10:02 am
Lizsark

Well you know Ata, those bad boy sheep might have nicked the ball! He had to run!
10:02 am
72 Temple Owl

oh then is a name change in order?;)
10:02 am
Atalante

yes, he had to! sheep are very scary! especially ball-stealing sheep
10:02 am
Dachef

probably, if I could be a***d!!!
10:03 am
Lizsark

I know! I see ewe've come across them before too then?
10:03 am
72 Temple Owl

i was about to say earlier i missed the chef icon
10:03 am
Atalante

a cow once stole Hobbit's ball-on-a-rope!
10:04 am
Lizsark

Now thats something thats never happened to me!
10:05 am
Dachef

Ata - was that line from the unedited Lord of the Rings?
10:05 am
Atalante

it was soooo funny, and the look on Hobbit's face was priceless
10:05 am
Atalante

LOL yep
10:05 am
Lizsark

lol Dac we could start our own fantasy series in here and Ata could illustrate it
10:06 am
Dachef

Chapter 46: Bilbo and Frodo play ball in a field of cows
10:06 am
Atalante

has Spangle ever had a ball stolen, Haz?
10:06 am
Dachef

with disastrous consequences.....
10:06 am
Atalante

Oh no! said Bilbo. That cow stole my precious!
10:06 am
Haz1558

No, I can't say that she has.
10:07 am
Lizsark

by a hobbit, a cow or otherwise
10:07 am
Atalante

oh. hmm. spoilsport
10:07 am
Haz1558

She leads a very dull life by comparison with Hobbit.
10:07 am
Lizsark

My precious LOL
10:07 am
periwinkle

hello all, back to find more words
10:08 am
Lizsark

hi Peri
10:08 am
Atalante

they all lead dull lives in comparison to Oscar!
10:08 am
Haz1558

Hello peri.
10:08 am
72 Temple Owl

please did anyone ever clue the it word?
10:08 am
Lizsark

Oscar is of course named after the award he so richly deserves!
10:08 am
Haz1558

Oscar is the Evil Knievel of the canine world.
10:09 am
Atalante

Liz - if I happened to persuade husband that we wanted to go to Sark for a few days, could we bring Hobbit? Are foreign dogs allowed? And how would we get her there - she's alright on small boats like over from Guernsey, no idea about the UK to Guernsey bit though!
10:09 am
Lizsark

I see him more as the Johnny Depp of the labrador world really - multi-talented and very good looking!
10:10 am
Atalante

is Johnny prone to sailing off cliffs?
10:10 am
Haz1558

But a risk-taker. A definite risk taker.
10:10 am
Lizsark

Oooo Ata! Yes she would be welcome but as you say its quite a journey. On the Sark boat they sit with you but on the big boat from the UK they have to be crated.
10:11 am
Lizsark

ok not Johnny Depp then....
10:11 am
Atalante

crated! ooo! how long does it take? you know what I bet it would be easier from here to nip over to Calais and drive down to the ferry connection in France
10:12 am
Lizsark

I'm not sure of the ins and outs but I can find out details easily enough. I have a Guernsey friend who takes her dogs to Crufts most years. She would know for sure.
10:13 am
Atalante

if you could, at some point, no hassle, no rush etc etc I'd be grateful!
10:13 am
Lizsark

Maybe Hong Kong Phooey.....
10:13 am
Lizsark

No prob. I'll give her a call tomorrow
10:13 am
Atalante

Crufts that won't be on TV :(
10:13 am
Lizsark

Oscar and Hobbit united!
10:14 am
Atalante

watch out Sark!
10:14 am
Lizsark

No I heaqrd that this morning
10:14 am
Lizsark

God Ata we'd have a ball!
10:14 am
Lizsark

(Not one a sheep could nick)
10:14 am
periwinkle

Hong Kong Phooey :-)
10:15 am
Atalante

I've wanted to go to Guernsey for ages - some of the Chalet School books are set in Guernsey and Lihou in particular and I've wanted to go and see for ages. And being able to see you in Sark is just a wonderful incentive!
10:15 am
Atalante

and FM and I want to come and see you too, Haz
10:15 am
Lizsark

Ah! Thats why you asked me about Lihou once before! I read the Chalet School In Exile just the other day!!
10:15 am
Haz1558

Goodness!
10:15 am
Atalante

yep :D
10:16 am
Haz1558

She's actually going to take time off work?
10:16 am
Atalante

there's a "spin-off" series from Chalet books called "La Rochelle", those are all set in a house looking out over Lihou
10:16 am
Lizsark

I wish FM could come here too. She could robably use a break with friends more than any of us
10:16 am
Atalante

LOL I'd have to kidnap her I think
10:16 am
Lizsark

*probably*
10:17 am
Lizsark

oh bum I have to go - have fun all. See you later...
10:17 am
Haz1558

Bye Liz (bet Oscar has jumped off a cliff again)
10:19 am
Atalante

probably!
10:19 am
72 Temple Owl

ok peeps i must ran also. happy babbling!
10:19 am
Haz1558

They should just have a constant patrol on the cliffs of Sark and be done with it.
10:19 am
Haz1558

Bye TO!
10:20 am
Atalante

they should just tear the cliffs down
10:20 am
Haz1558

Or have nets at the bottom? Or trampolines?
10:21 am
Atalante

trampolines!
10:21 am
Atalante

oscar: run run run run wheeeeee *boing*!
10:21 am
Haz1558

'There's nothing like springtime in Sark'
10:22 am
Haz1558

There could be a new sport. Forget fly ball at Crufts, springing in Sark is the business.
10:22 am
Atalante

hoooome home on the range, where the labs and spaniels go boing!
10:23 am
Haz1558

Where never is heard a discouraging snarl and the dogs go jumping all day.
10:23 am
Atalante

looooool
10:23 am
Atalante

I have to post that on Liz's facebook so she sees it
10:24 am
Haz1558

Oscar should really have a fan club, I think.
10:25 am
Atalante

he really should
10:26 am
Haz1558

The mu words are fun. I predict confusion when it comes to clues....
10:27 am
Atalante

did you see me earlier telling everyone about the first phantom word I came across, that was some of the M words plus a letter or two? I always do that
10:28 am
Haz1558

No! You never learn, do you? Still, it's not like it's going to spoil things too much.
10:29 am
Atalante

it was such a good word though! mu***let
10:29 am
Haz1558

Just as well it's the mistake of a genius. (Flinching at the thought of a mullet in the grid)
10:30 am

If you keep the lights off and hunker down, they'll maybe go away and leave you alone.

I tried that, Haz..it doesn't work, they wait
10:35 am
Haz1558

Good grief. Persistent, are they?
10:36 am
Haz1558

How about leaving a note at the door 'On a mercy mission. Come back in a couple of hours'
10:36 am

Yes, very! I keep trying to put in "itemize"
10:37 am
Anniebrook

I have 8 mu's....very similar

Annie, dear, it won't even take item. You're on a hiding to nothing.
10:37 am

I know..*sigh*
10:37 am

There are 11 - all very similar.
10:37 am

11:03 am
Atalante

look at my new pic for a pic of a new cute pup - he's called Arthur and he's my godmother's new pup. He's too scrawny and his head looks too big and he's adorable!
11:03 am
Haz1558

At least swallowing teeth cuts out the need for expernsive tooth fairy visits.
11:03 am
Pinikula

do you have a pop-up blocker on, Tor?
11:03 am
Vicuna

Daughter is cheerful and NEVER SHUTS UP! lol
11:03 am

How much is the tooth fairy expected to cough up these days?
11:04 am
Haz1558

Arthur is lovely. He was called after King Arthur rather than Arthur Scargill, I hope?
11:04 am
Vicuna

Tooth fairy doesn't come to our house! She knows we have no truck with such nonsense!
11:04 am

But Haz, I don't WANT to know "really?"
11:06 am
Atalante

or "that's nice,d ear"
11:07 am

Oh, you don't really listen, it's just a way of her thinking that you're interested.

That's an old French proverb, Haz. "At night all cats look the same - especially all the white ones."
11:16 am
Haz1558

It's a theory. Far-fetched, I know.
11:16 am
Vicuna

Only they say it in French.
11:16 am

tor, I have a wicked stupid question, but I honestly don't know the answer - we bought this heater thing to float in the fish pond, so there will always be an open circle of unfrozen water. I put it in the pond, and plugged it into the outdoor outlet, which has one of those "reset" and "test" buttons on it, and a little light. When the light is shining, does that mean the outlet is working, or that it has tripped and I have to push the little button in?

That's a "Ground fault" outlet .. Push the test button - That will trip it .. Then push the reset button - the light should change .. I don't remember if the light means okay or tripped ..Does the heater cord have 3 prongs?
12:53 pm

12:55 pm

If the reset button does not pop back out when you push it then it's okay ..
12:55 pm
Trifioso

the heater plugs into a loooong extension cord that runs from the pond to the house. the joint where the extension cord meets the heater cord is just sitting on the side of the pond, exposed to whatever, so every time it gets wet the switch will trip, right? that can't be good. What should I do? wrap it in plastic? electrical tape?
12:56 pm
Trifioso

I am sorry for not knowing this stuff. I am learning as I go. I am sure the heater came with instructions, but the ex wasn't exactly forthcoming with the location of same and he screeched away from the hosue
12:58 pm
Pinikula

(not that I know what I'm talking about, but if you want to protect the cord, could you use a piece of PVC pipe?)
12:58 pm
torgone

Definitely .. Dry off the cord ends and wrap the junction with electrical tape .. at least two layers ..
12:59 pm

The outlet is doing what it's supposed to do ..It trip when it detects a short to ground ..
12:59 pm

1:00 pm
Trifioso

okay, will do. I wish i knew if the heater was supposed to be on all the time, or cycled on and off. seems like every time I check it it's cold, and I know it didn't work last night, as I had to hack it out of the frozen pond this morning. I figured the connection got wet and the cord tripped, so that's how this whole thing started. Frankly, I am quite proud of myself for figuring THAT much out!

But she spoiled her's far too much
5:35 pm
Atalante

every dog owner's problem!
5:37 pm
Karys

It's true... I don't like to admit it, but I think her dog 'Minty' would have had a better life really had she have been someone else's !
5:37 pm
Atalante

that;s a shame :(
5:38 pm
Karys

I feel that too.... but my Mum was far too old too be 'changed'
5:39 pm
Uniquity

That is why you must be tough like loriP and Haz and just not feed pets at all, lest they be spoiled.
5:39 pm
Uniquity

:)
5:39 pm

some people you can't tell - my husband's mother had a very fat corgi, after she died, Molly went to husband's sister, lost about a stone and a half inweight and is ow a new dog!

5:41 pm
