2:20 am
SamanthaJoy

Nah, jillibus, thank you, but I don't change my icon. I just don't have the consistent internet access speed to do that
2:21 am
herinfernallady

I know what the theme is but there is nothing i can do about it.
2:21 am
SamanthaJoy

ok, well, herin, christmas is just a few days away. you can manage!
2:21 am
jillibus

2:21 am
SamanthaJoy

2:22 am
jillibus

nm, herin, it's a very pretty cobweb
2:22 am
Angelsong

yes, and the Babble Guide has been online for most of that time, Jilli, 2 and a half years.
2:22 am
jillibus

herinfernallady

I need a cookie and a lie down.
2:24 am
mrpresident

niters flosey!
2:24 am
herinfernallady

2:24 am
jillibus

Night flosey -- prbably see you tomorrow some time -- snow is blowing around heartily here...
2:25 am

GroovyKiwi

ive got popcorn herin
2:25 am
SamanthaJoy

herin, we're looking at having to depend on ISDN. It's twice the speed of dialup, and the best we're going to get where we live. Is it available for you?
2:25 am
Frances

Night flosey. Sleep well.
2:25 am
herinfernallady

yep. Night flosey
2:25 am
SamanthaJoy

Jillibus, your profile is fascinating
2:26 am
herinfernallady

I am looking at trying to get more memory
2:26 am
jillibus

thanks, sam!
2:27 am
SamanthaJoy

Memory is dirt cheap and OMG JILLIBUS YOUR DOG IS SO CUTE!!!
2:27 am
SamanthaJoy

Well. Not your dog anymore, not if thatpic is circa 1980, but SO CUTE nonetheless!
2:27 am
herinfernallady

Sam long story short. New house doesn't have Telstra lines (which is the standard in houses) Instead we have optus which there is limited carriers that piggy back off it. Optus is very very very very expensive. You need to pay for house line rental as well. its about $109 alone
2:28 am
jillibus

you mean Glenda, snoozing on her chewed-up chair?
2:28 am
herinfernallady

yes Glenda was a darling
2:28 am
herinfernallady

Thanks Mr pres
2:28 am
SamanthaJoy

Yes, I mean Glenda, and herin--$109Aus? *choke*
2:29 am
herinfernallady

yes a month
2:29 am
mrpresident

Optus piggy back off Telstra... which piggy backs off American AATP... sucks big hairy balls
2:29 am
SamanthaJoy

Also, jill, I've never managed the spoon thing. I'm kinda jealous, although I'd never be so crass as to admit it . . . uh, whoops.
2:29 am
herinfernallady

that is for about 30gig a month. At our old house we paid about $200 a month and we never ever had a problem
2:30 am
jillibus

I can't do the spoon thing at all
2:30 am
SamanthaJoy

So that's not you in the picture?
2:30 am
loredana

good night flosey sleep well
2:30 am
jillibus

sam, that's my granddaughter!
2:31 am
Frances

I must be very lucky here. I use Tiscali broadband. Always on. Unlimited usage and all for £14.99 per month.
2:31 am
herinfernallady

Mr PRes that is true. But our landlord (who is the owner) pulled out all the telstra lines and laid in Optus cable. Yes oh excitment we can have sloptus cable at hiedious rate
2:31 am
SamanthaJoy

Well, jillibus, she looks as if she may grow up to be as good lookign as you are (was that a decent save?)
2:31 am
herinfernallady

Lucky Frances
2:31 am
mrpresident

infern, you can request having telstra put in
2:31 am
jillibus

superb, sam. LOL!
2:32 am
mrpresident

they can't say no, without very good reason, as you are paying for it
2:32 am
herinfernallady

Yes but do you have $500
2:32 am
mrpresident

it is free to have telstra put in at the moment
2:32 am
SamanthaJoy

That's good, jilllibus. Nothing against, you know, all the *furriners* but as the only north Americans in the chat we have to stick together. :-)
2:32 am
herinfernallady

you sh????? me how did you find that out
2:32 am
mrpresident

I have $500 by the way, but it went to car accident excess
2:33 am

Yah ANike.
2:33 am
jillibus

2:33 am
mrpresident

and at half the price too
2:33 am
jillibus

YAY anike lurkie :)
2:34 am
SamanthaJoy

I am so tempted to make a "my grandparents were criminals too!" joke but I think I'd be a couple of centuries out of date.
2:34 am
herinfernallady

We don't have the lines in the house no telstra lines nothing
2:34 am
mrpresident

half the price for the year of having broadband and cable
2:34 am
mrpresident

how about ADSL???
2:34 am
jillibus

herin, your sustems are very different from ours, I think
2:35 am
herinfernallady

so thank gods there is a huge grid
2:35 am
herinfernallady

No telstra lines
2:35 am
mrpresident

infern, get telstra to put them in
2:35 am
jillibus

I have ADSL, supplied by the telepone company to my ISP
2:35 am
herinfernallady

Jill most houses have Telstra lines installed as standard. Unfortunalty there is no telstra lines
2:36 am
Frances

I get fast broadband down the telephone line. You can make calls and use the internet at the same time.
2:36 am
herinfernallady

Mr Pres but that is $500 the last time I looked they have to lay the lines
2:36 am
mrpresident

infern... there is no way you can't have telstra.... optus piggybacks off telstra... so it is impossible that telstra can't put a line in
2:36 am
jillibus

I have no idea what Telstra lines are
2:37 am
herinfernallady

You know that there is Optus cabling yes?
2:37 am
mrpresident

yes I do
2:37 am
herinfernallady

Jill Telstra are a telephone company
2:37 am

2:59 am
Atalante

did!
2:59 am
Angelsong

and, when that ten years ended, the pain of my infant brother's death when I was eight years old also healed.
2:59 am
jillibus

oh angel, you must have been so close to him! I never knew my grandfathers
3:00 am
herinfernallady

Angel today is the 14th aniversary of my grandmas passing and the 12 aniversary of my very first b.f leaving. It is hard Angel BIG HUGS and thinking of you
3:02 am
Angelsong

I helped care for my grandfather for the last few months of his life, so my grandmother could work. I was the one who called her at work and told her to go immediately to the hospital the morning he died. That Christmas, 1983, was not a holiday. We had his funeral on the 23rd...so Christmas is sometimes very hard for me.
3:02 am
herinfernallady

oh ANgel
3:04 am
Angelsong

I was very, very close to my paternal grandparents. My mother's parents lived far from us, so I saw them less often. I lived with my paternal grandparents as a child, and as an adult with children of my own, at one time.
3:05 am
herinfernallady

Angel that sounds like a very loving and close parently bond to me.
3:06 am
Angelsong

they helped give me back the childhood that was almost stolen by alcoholism and domestic violence in my parents' home.
3:07 am
herinfernallady

oh. I don't know what to say without coming across as shallow (text doesn't convey emotions attached to words well)
3:08 am
Angelsong

I am writing my autobiography, so some of this is connected to the writing. I will wait until after the holidays to write more, I think.
3:09 am

wow Angel wow

3:13 am
Angelsong

I carrried the grief about my infant brother from his death in 1962 until 1993 when I realized his death and my grandfather's death had been connected, in my mind. Then, I called a friend and asked her to help me find my brother's grave, and went there to finish the grief work for him.
3:14 am
loredana

3:18 am
Angelsong

yes. it caught me very much by surprise. I realized, though, that my grandfather had taken an active role in helping me cope with my brother's death, when my parents could not. that's why the two deaths connected the way they did.
3:19 am
herinfernallady

Angel that is important.

10:46 am
MonkeyGames

He was running in his new rain boots, and tripped on a gravel path. His nose looked like a starwberry for a while but is just scratched and a bit bruised now and he can breathe through it no problem, but he also scraped the heel of his hand and of course keeps bumping it. A Tylenol helped this morning when he was complaining about the nose being sore, and I'm sure the one I just gave him will help in short order.

Goes with the territory for a 4-year-old outdoorsman... but he does need lots of comforting. The hand is a very small wound but is a bit inflamed and the nose is rather spectacular... Bound to happen though. I had 7 concussions by the toime I was 11... Doesn't make me OK with it, but he has to be allowed to runa nd explore!

11:54 am

Atalante, in the United States, the traditional Christian celebration of Christ's mass became a secular holiday in which one demonstrates wealth and status by gift-giving. Not too different from the native Pacific Northwestern indigenous people's potlatch.

I have a woodstove. You want mine? It's more trouble than it's worth. Chimney needs cleaning, so we haven't used ours in over 3 years.
12:17 pm

I was going to say Pini, the thing ith fireplaces they actually suck out a lot of warm air with the draft, and if not cleaned, you could burn yourself down.

Exactly, Red...and, to make matters even more interesting on the heating, my house came with ~ go figure ~ ceiling heat!!! Whoever thought of that idea forgot to turn his/her brain on when designing!

Ours is in our den downstairs. That room becomes hot, while everything else gets colder. Dries everything out in the rest of the house too. Maybe I'll put it on Craigs List. I'm sure someone would be willing to come lug it away.

Hanging in there, Trif! Typical day in chaos. The "big event" was that Walter was running in his new rain boots, and tripped on a gravel path. His nose looked like a starwberry for a while but is just scratched and a bit bruised now and he can breathe through it no problem, but he also scraped the heel of his hand and of course kept bumping it. But mostly cheery and high as a kite, and in bed now, and quite so probably asleep.

hmmm, you can't make ice cream with pie crust, so perhaps my suggestion won't work... was going to say, very quick pastry dessert is to make pie crust batter, roll it out, slather it with butter and then a mix of cinnamon and sugar, roll it up, and cook it for about 10 mins at something like 400 degrees

3:20 pm
SamanthaJoy

Actually, red, I think it's true--MOST of the time. 95% of drivers are cautious and pay attention 95% of the time. It's the other 5%, in both cases, that scares the rest of us on the roads.
3:20 pm
redturtlehead

trek that is...
3:21 pm
Trifioso

it's the other 5% that I will be praying for in March, when my oldest starts driving

Trif, have you been errr cleaning?
3:22 pm
Trifioso

lol - why shouln't it? it is wreaking havoc with everything else. Cleaning? heck no, I fell in this grid and can't get out. Been moping after the kids being gone all day
3:22 pm

Are we blaming the weather for *everything* now? I know it's affecting my dry skin.
3:23 pm
redturtlehead

I unfortunately have no weather to blame anything on Sam...I heard it snowedin Houston?
3:23 pm
SamanthaJoy

Is it the cause of my neighbor's donkey which WILL NOT STOP braying?
3:23 pm
Trifioso

primo home...thank god
3:23 pm
SamanthaJoy

It may have? I'm 300 miles north of Houston. lol
3:24 pm
redturtlehead

The problem is the donkey, weather irregardless.
3:24 pm
Trifioso

i wanted to get a donkey a while ago, but no dice
3:24 pm
redturtlehead

Why get a donkey?
3:24 pm
redturtlehead

I dont get it.
3:24 pm
SamanthaJoy

The problem's going to get solved with a shotgun soon, I fear. not ours, but we have *other* neighbors too
3:25 pm
Trifioso

why not? they eat lots of gross weeds, and help with fertilizing. and they are really really sweet
3:25 pm
Atalante

and bite you
3:25 pm
SamanthaJoy

That seems directly antithetical to the "really sweet" proposition
3:26 pm
redturtlehead

Tri, donkeys are not by nature sweet, usually they are a bit ornery.
3:26 pm
redturtlehead

and loud and kick you. get goats instead.
3:26 pm
Trifioso

the ones I have come across have been lovely. they are like big dogs, really. treat them well, love and respect them, address their needs, and they love you back.
3:26 pm
Atalante

goats look evil, but are nicer
3:26 pm
Atalante

and then BITE YOU!
3:26 pm

Goats aren't notoriously friendly creatures either
3:26 pm
Atalante

:P
3:27 pm
Trifioso

YES - I would Love some goats! we have tons of poison ivy, and they do a great job with it. unfortunately, we also have a lot of skunk cabbage, and it makes goats ill
3:27 pm
redturtlehead

no they arent but they are smaller and their kick hurts less...
3:27 pm
SamanthaJoy

Maybe pygmy goats?
3:28 pm
Atalante

pigs are nice
3:28 pm
BabbleRabble

3:28 pm
Trifioso

we are down one hamster, and about to be up two cats, so I think i will hold with that for a while. trying to keep the fish in the pond alive through the winter is proving hard enough

Sam, read what you just typed....goats but no goats?
3:30 pm
BabbleRabble

motored
3:30 pm
Trifioso

i think the problem with our pond is keeping a clear hole in the ice for bad gasses to escape. The heater we have to keep a hole clear just isn't doing it. bummer
3:30 pm
Atalante

pigs are very clean by nature if you keep them correctly
3:30 pm

Whoops. Pigs. Goats but no PIGS.

last di 7?
3:32 pm
Trifioso

yes, but it is bigger than you might think of - it's about 17 feet by 27 feet. it was a construction accident gone wrong, (misplaced septic) and we said, rather than fill in the hole, let's line it and make a pond....choas ensued.
3:33 pm
Trifioso

we should have just made a swimming pool, it would have been easier to maintain
3:33 pm

when you morph or stretch a picture you di***** it.

big pond version of tennis ball - same effect -
There is a fairly easy trick to keeping a hole open in your pond. Put as large in diameter of a log as your pond can handle. They don't have to be long, just big and round. The larger diameter the better as long as they are still floating. More than one is great if you have them and they will fit.

Why does this work? As the pond freezes the ice will push against the logs and gradually move them downward in the pond. Each day as the sun warms up the log the hole will open up again and most nights it will not shut completely. Each morning you just need to pop the log with a pole or sledge to make sure it is free and that is all you need to do. I have been using this trick for over 40 years and it was taught to me by an old rancher in the mountains of Colorado.
3:37 pm
Trifioso

wow, thanks ata! that is great advice, and not using the heater is better for the planet anyway, so thanks very much!
3:38 pm
redturtlehead

cheaper too!
3:38 pm

basically something round and relative sized to your pond

du9/72 is the other nine letter word.

36? whats that? 41 is 7 ... so small!
4:15 pm

they will not hold much decor.

du9 - first find du4/6. It is structured the same as the word that begins with b and which happens when you put something into the fire.
4:17 pm

Make it past tense for du6/27, then put the superlative ending for du9/72
4:18 pm
