3:01 am
LoriP

Good, because my brain space is limited this morn....
3:02 am

peculiar little words which crop up frequently in Babble, like "anoa" (the Celebes buffalo)
3:02 am

3:44 am
Haz1558

de6/24 - of blessed memory.
3:44 am
Haz1558

Hello there!
3:45 am
LoriP

How's your stress free life this beautiful day Haz?
3:46 am
Haz1558

So far, so good. One daugher recovered from the airport, one shopping trip to make, one house to finish decorating, one meal to make for 6, one carol concert to attend, desserts for 12 to finish and lay out. Otherwise another boring day.
3:46 am
Haz1558

And I've done the grid.
3:47 am
LoriP

That's all well and good, but what will you be doing with your spare time?
3:47 am
Haz1558

I intend to brush up on my concerto writing and madrigal singing.
3:47 am
LoriP

You're done? Less that 9 mins 54 secs? :p
3:47 am
FMitch

Good heavens grid done already!
3:47 am
LoriP

Will there be any Greek dance classes?
3:48 am
FMitch

Shhhhhh!!
3:48 am
Haz1558

I couldn't sleep - early pick up at the airport meant that I got a head start. But it's a nice grid anyway.
3:48 am
FMitch

I swear thats the las ttime I share with you guys ;)
3:48 am
Haz1558

No, I've outgrown my Greek tunic. Does yours still fit, FM?
3:49 am
lynxxx

rofl - that's little titters in the background
3:49 am
FMitch

*la la la I can't hear you*
3:49 am
LoriP

You're an amazing woman Haz, FM might lend you her tunic.
3:49 am
Haz1558

Denial. It's classic.
3:50 am
Haz1558

Do you really think she might?
3:50 am
LoriP

It really loses its magic without the proper garb.
3:50 am
Haz1558

Of course, if I was worth anything at all I'd have an Irish dancing dress and be able to hoof out Riverdance with the best of them.
3:50 am
FMitch

Isadora Duncan has a LOT to answer for.
3:51 am
LoriP

Greek dance performed in jammies and a housecoat has less of the "wow" factor.
3:51 am
Haz1558

Imagination is a wonderful thing. Riverdance in slippers is a no-no however.
3:52 am
LoriP

Riverdance without a respirator is a no-no as well.
3:52 am
FMitch

I remember the Eurovision song conests that launched that dance - sent shivers down my spine.
3:52 am
Haz1558

It was responsible for a terrible lot of people picking up Irish dancing.
3:53 am
LoriP

What about the best of both worlds, and create a new dance. Griverdance!
3:53 am
Haz1558

It was fab, FM, it was only later that we realised that Michael Flatley was so...... Michael Flatley.
3:53 am
FMitch

cant type today, no wonder I am having problems finding words.
*nods head at Haz*
3:54 am
LoriP

Or Reekdance. :P
3:54 am
FMitch

*BabbleDance*
3:54 am
Haz1558

Could there be an Irish version of Grease?
3:54 am
LoriP

That would be dazzling Haz.
3:55 am
Haz1558

They wouldn't so much hang out at the diner as congregate on their tractors in the main street of the town.
3:55 am
Haz1558

Young farmer boys from around here can't drive cars until they're 17 but can drive tractors much earlier. They literally drive them into the village and hang out at the fish and chip shop.
3:56 am
FMitch

and throw the odd Baileys wreath around?
3:56 am
Haz1558

It's all hip hop and happening in these parts, you have no idea.
3:56 am
LoriP

Are there tractor races, youth being yoputh and all.
3:57 am
Haz1558

Not that I've heard of, Lori, but you give a good idea for the Grease/Irish film....
3:58 am
FMitch

Oh just remembered there is racing on today I had better head out before the roads get to clogged up with traffic.
3:58 am
Haz1558

There are young farmers clubs (actually a great place for young people to get together) and they have silage judging and cattle judging contests.
3:58 am
LoriP

When you ladies are here, I get nothing done on the grid, and always have sore ribs for some reason.
3:59 am
Haz1558

How can this be, Lori? have you any idea what she means, FM?
3:59 am
LoriP

FM! Stop being organized.
3:59 am
FMitch

Think i will do a quick local shop and then back to sanctuary.

Don't blame us Lori - it's not our fault!
3:59 am
Haz1558

We are not to blame. We are innocent.
3:59 am
FMitch

Back soon *poof*
4:00 am
LoriP

Like I said to the kids "didn't you just get Chjristmas gifts last year?"
4:00 am
Haz1558

I'd better go as well. Look after those ribs, Lori!
4:00 am
Haz1558

Bye all!
4:00 am
LoriP

A pouty "laters" to ya' FM
4:00 am

I was supposed to fly thru Chicago today, but I convinced the airline that it would be senseless to have me leave here and deposit me there overnight. So they gave me a waiver and I'm leaving tomorrow instead.
5:20 am

I hate to leave these 70 plus degree Georgia days for a blizzard back home. Brrrr.
5:20 am

YAH Merk well that sucks that you get delayed but dang I would rather you there in the warmth

Yes, but I also feel like a wimp, because others don't seem to go as slowly as I do. Then again, some of them have 4-wheel drive, and some of them are nuts and I later see them slid off the road. And when I would pull over to let others go, they didn't want to...no one wants to be the first in line.

Then I got home and of course could only make it a few inches up the driveway, which is very long and curvy....but a dear friend had come while I was out, without telling me, and cleared the bottom of the drivway so I could pull out of the road. My flashlight batteries were dead, of course, but by then I didn't care. Put my cleats on my boots, focused on the direction of the house and trudged, trying not to think about those news articles where people are found frozen to death 5 feet from their front doors. But it wasn't windy, and not terribly cold (about 7F0 so I knew I'd be okay. Merp was so glad to see me, and I him.

Not just scale, but priorities. There are plenty of large countries that have adequate public transport. The US has been so focused on auto travel and nothing but,that our bus and rail system have been allowed to fall into utter disrepair. And now with the economic disaster, even more routs are being cut. Maybe the new administration will try to do something abotu this.

Within urban centers there is usually decent public transport. But in rural areas people without cars don't go from A to B unless others give them a ride. They have to live right in town where they can walk

7:22 am

I believe someone did, Eva. Some cover for cars or stuff like that? Haven't found it yet though.
7:22 am
redturtlehead

Not currently, but I am either going to put it on the market, or rent it if I can...
7:22 am
Eva

no I think that was just a conversation about the phantom work tonneau.
7:22 am
sprite

that was my assumption, BabbleRabble. The pigfaced one in front of the dollar sign kinda pointed that way :)
7:23 am

7:27 am
redturtlehead

I;d be staying right here in sunshine Florida, and selling my albatross house in North Carolina...all within the US. Herin.
7:27 am
Anniebrook

red, would you consider renting until the market picks up?
7:27 am
redturtlehead

If the realtor thinks I wont break even or it wont sell within 3 months, I will probably rent...hich is a whole nother kettle of fish!
7:27 am

I am really going to catch it this week at the marriage counselors though - R was hammering at Primo last night to come and spend the weekend with him, even though Primo has made it perfectly clear that he does not want to see him right now, and I finally said "please leave him alone, he has stated his case" and R looked at me with such hatred. I am really going to catch hell for that, because I am not supposed to interfere, but I was sick of R giving him a hard time
7:46 am

hi Tri - I don't know about the Greek army but if you'd grown up in New York City, Jewish or not, you'd be familiar with a lot of Yiddish (and if in my neighborhood, with Italian, Norwegian, Polish, and Catholic vocab as well). But "shtetl" came up in print in a San Francisco newspaper last week in a discussion on Chagall's painting. So -- you never know what Babble will bring...

the usual mixed bouquet. I wasn't there when they were purchased, but they look like the type you get at a grocer's floral section. they are nice. couple roses, lots of gerberas

hi and thx dorens
8:22 am
Dorens

even if they had the heat lamps that the Parisian caf├ęs use, I wouldn't want to be out there
8:22 am
Dorens

Annie I heard that was wonderful
8:22 am
herinfernallady

ok your best bet is to very carefully cut the ends of the stems off and put them in water with a bit of sugar
8:23 am
Anniebrook

dorens, so they say....it is 3 1/2 hours long with 2 intermissions....
8:23 am
Trifioso

thanks herin
8:24 am
Uneaixoise

oh, i was gonna ask, Dorens!! So excited for you!!!!!!!!!
8:24 am
herinfernallady

If you cut just the ends off it reopens the stem and allows moister into the flowers
8:24 am
Dorens

3 and a half hours.... you NEED two intermissions. Not sure how i'll get through tonite... 2 hrs. 45 minutes and I have a pretty bad cough...
8:25 am
ardilla

make su4 to do it diagonally to allow more new surface area
8:26 am
Anniebrook

dorens, you will be so engrossed in the play you will not cough but to be on the safe side..bring lots of cough drops
8:26 am
Trifioso

whoops - I missed a crucial point here - the restaurants in vermont were participating in a fund raiser to raise money and awareness of homelessness, which is why they served people outside. and they raised thousands, so that does seem a better idea
8:26 am
herinfernallady

It depends on the actual flowers. there is flower food from the florist, I have heard of sugar, mountain dew/lemonade, vinegar and bleach being put in the water. I would say just a little bit of sugar or plan free water

grub crawl is not the most attractive name for that activity, lol
9:36 am
evanonut

aw! they're not ugly, just under appreciated, i even named the one harold.
9:36 am
Dorens

very ugly, yes. why do they come to the house nut, do you leave something out for them?
9:36 am
Trifioso

I am assuming "grub crawl" is a play on words for "pub crawl" yes?
9:39 am
redturtlehead

jmc you have fun.!
9:39 am
Dorens

yes, progressive dinner is the usual term, but i do like moveable feast (even tho it's not the feast that's moving, but the feasters)
9:39 am
DR1965

careful when you open the door Dorens
9:39 am
herinfernallady

Dorens poor skunks are underrated. My friend has a pair of descented and desexed resuce fur skunks
9:40 am
Haz1558

Yes, Trif.
9:40 am
hurshy

ah well dorens it depends how you define feast - is it the FOOD, or the EVENT?
9:40 am
Trifioso

I would much rather these young ladies do a grub crawl than a pub crawl!
9:40 am
Dorens

true there hurshy.. if it is the event then it's just fine
9:41 am
Haz1558

Absolutely. I'm trying to decide whether I need to clean - they're young, will they notice?
9:41 am
Dorens

skunks are very pretty and cute and all that, but once in Martha's Vineyard my son's whippet got skunked and it definitely ruined the evening
9:41 am
Dorens

no, they won't at all!
9:41 am
herinfernallady

Friend is in the states. We don't even have skunks in zoos
9:41 am
redturtlehead

they will not note it haz, put spangle to work with cleaning.
9:42 am
Haz1558

And they'll not look in the kitchen cupboards either, will they?
9:42 am
herinfernallady

ewww
9:42 am
Trifioso

herin, do you have them at all in oz?
9:42 am
Dorens

young people who notice unclean houses are extremely unusual
9:42 am

9:42 am
redturtlehead

not unless they are still hungry.
9:42 am
Trifioso

they will look in the bathroom cupboards though, trust me!
9:42 am
Haz1558

I'll insist on dim lighting just to make sure.

hi again all. I am really feeling the effects of having had a flu jab the other day
11:00 am
flosey

take care Ata, hope it passes in time to enjoy Christmas
11:00 am
MonkeyGames

Oh hang in there! You can't be allergic to gold per se but you can react... what an odd thing if you don't mind me saying so, but I feel for you. Had a friend witha s imilar thing once. He actually inhaled gold vapor and was in the hospital for three months.
11:00 am
MonkeyGames

He worked in some kind of highly sophisticated lab and someone else disregarded safety precautions...
11:00 am
Atalante

lol the gold thing isn't very related to flu jab issues, unless they've coated needles in gold!
11:01 am
MonkeyGames

No but the metals thing in general is.
11:01 am
flosey

hmmm, one time use gold plated needles!
11:01 am
Atalante

so what reaction do I have if it's not an allergc reaction?
11:02 am
MonkeyGames

I did read once that the sectret to some genetic manipulations someone was doing required "bombarding the corn with tiny gold beads coated in DNA"...
11:03 am
Atalante

yes, gold is very useful as an inert medium
11:03 am
MonkeyGames

Well, clearly something metabolic. I do not claim to be an expert but gold is inert, so you must be having some dort of structural reaction on a cellular level or something equally interesting. I wil see if I can find out anything about it; there are Dutch studies into this sort of thing so I may be able to access articles you can;t read.
11:03 am
MonkeyGames

I certainly do not doubt your word, and wouldn't even if I didn;t know someone with something similar.
11:03 am
Atalante

oh right
11:05 am
MonkeyGames

The weirdest one I've seen though in this kind of SF thing is the friend I had who could not wear digital watches-- they synched themselves to her heartbeat instead of ticking over every second. Messed her sense of time right up.
11:05 am
MonkeyGames

I watched it happen more than once.
11:05 am
Atalante

well as gold isn't 100% pure, it's not chemically inert. And also, it is possible to have allergic reactions to truly inert materials, though its rare
11:06 am
MonkeyGames

Good points both. Anyway my point was that I find it intrigueing and also feel for you and hope you feel better soon!
11:07 am
Atalante

yeah, temperature and flu symptoms aren't fun
11:07 am
MonkeyGames

No, they do suck. And as a scientific sort you surely already know everything I'd reccoment for it already.... Hang in there!
11:08 am
MonkeyGames

You're in the same position I am regarding multi-symptom flu remedies, right? Can NOT get them here.
11:09 am
Atalante

we can get a lot here. certainly more than you can in america
11:10 am
MonkeyGames

Really!? The Dutch seem biased toward not stoocking things like, say, Nyquil, or other things that just knock you out and kill the worst edges when you have the flu.
11:10 am
MonkeyGames

Maybe I should plan a ferry-trip.
11:10 am
Atalante

Beechams all-in-one. The best stuff ever. I export it to friends in the US
11:11 am
MonkeyGames

Do you have paypal? I would kill to rtry that next time the flu strikes!
11:11 am
Atalante

paracetamol, guaifenesin and phenylephrine hydrochloride
11:12 am
MonkeyGames

Sounds good. Or I can swap you a cough syrup with codeine, or that OTC there too? Natterman's extra strong.
11:12 am
Atalante

and we can get stuff with codeine OTC too, which is good
11:13 am
Atalante

I've got to send a parcel over to Spritey soon, I'll shove some in for you, I'm sure she will like an excuse to come and see you!!
11:13 am
MonkeyGames

I can only get the cough syrup wityh codeine, but I have some stocked up from all the stuff the doctor tried for my back and which didn't really help. So in an emergency I do have a stash.
11:13 am
MonkeyGames

That'd be AWESOME! Let me know what I owe you.
11:14 am
Atalante

oh don't worry, it's only a few dollars per pack. If you start wanting industrial size packages, we'll then consider it!
11:15 am

You're so sweet! Want anything Dutch? I can send you nettle cheese...

it is a good idea to get one, I admit. But I still dont do it. and now I am ill...sooo
1:41 pm
Atalante

if there was a real correlation between having the jab and staying well, more ppl would have it
1:41 pm
bichon

I have a friend who is *constantly* fighting his doctors. He even argues with his oncologist and disregards his advice. I find it so frustrating to listen to him complain. I always tell him I have complete faith in my doctors and do what they tell me. It's served me well.
1:42 pm
redturtlehead

I think actually Ata there is a correlation, the years they get it right....people dont get the flu...plus a lot of people say they have the flu but its just a cold...
1:42 pm
Atalante

there is a correlation, but not a *brilliant* one
1:43 pm
redturtlehead

or if they get the flu its a lot less severe which reduces mortality. It is amazing ho wmany people do die from flu.
1:43 pm

the problem is that so many times the strin is the wrong one...

Hello lil*monkey! How are you? Welcome to the puzzle
7:14 pm

jnr, did you read the help pages (right above the chat box here)?
7:15 pm
lil*monkey

hi Minver :)
7:15 pm
Pinikula

To use it, simply...Open --Lickety's Babble Clues -- (found at the bottom of this page) in another window. Next, copy the words you've found (under Babble - My Word List) and paste them in the large box at the bottom of the Lickety's List (Bulk Add). Press Add and your found words will be placed in their appropriate places on the list. Then you simply try and find the words that are still missing. Update your Lickety's List by repeating the copy / paste / Bulk Add.
7:15 pm
