see if you enter a word in the grid while the page is loading, the word shows up in "My Word List" but the corresponding tile does not reflect you getting the word. if you go on to add ther words they too do not get "remembered" - you have to refresh
3:32 am
rolin

what area is it coming from lynxxx?
3:32 am
lynxxx

around Korumburra
3:33 am
Andree

hi bfsog
3:33 am
lynxxx

are you talking about when using BabbleExpert bfsog?
3:35 am
lynxxx

BBL must org some dinner
3:35 am
bfsog

no playbabblle.com - if you start entering words before the page is loaded they are seemed to be taken by the grid but a refresh clears the words entered
3:35 am
bfsog

no big deal but if you entered a word while page was loading then complete the grid a refresh would take away your fireworks!
3:42 am

sandyloo

I feel like sleeping, I have been to lunch today
3:54 am

have to cook dinner- lol- what a pity
3:56 am
mrpresident

I should perhaps have dinner! bbq chicken now costing me $14.80!! what the??
3:56 am
Andree

cooking dinner is a real chore when you have been out to lunch and don't feel like much
3:56 am
mrpresident

since when did a stupid bird cost so much??
3:58 am
mrpresident

bbs, need to get kids to bed
3:58 am
Andree

i guess since it got caught cleaned and cooked, lol
4:02 am
mrpresident

Oh andree, I remember a simpler time... raise, feed and kill the bird yourself!
4:02 am
mrpresident

we have a huge chook pen, might start doing that again
4:03 am
Andree

thats what my mum did mrp, sandy do you eat your own chooks or just keep them for the eggs
4:04 am
sandyloo

we havent eaten any as yet, but we are not ruling it out
4:05 am
mrpresident

it is too easy to do... Lickety will fix the coope this weekend
4:05 am
sandyloo

we did it when we were kids or at least my dad did
4:05 am
Andree

can't kill good layers though
4:06 am
Andree

must go have dinner, back soon
4:07 am
sandyloo

we are not getting any eggs lately, the crows are stealing them, we are looking for a dead crow
4:08 am
sandyloo

just read my profile
4:08 am
mrpresident

we have a family of goannas too... they go straight up to the chook pen looking for eggs
4:08 am
sandyloo

im not ruling that one out either pres
4:09 am
sandyloo

but with the dead crow hanging up we get eggs
4:09 am
mrpresident

ah, good psychology!
4:10 am
sandyloo

it really works pres
4:11 am
mrpresident

well, if someone hung a dead crow outside my room, I would be cowering and doing what I was asked to do too! LOL
4:11 am
sandyloo

and not stealing eggs!!
4:12 am
mrpresident

'hey you! yeah you.... the chicken with the teeth... if you don't lay eggs, this is what will happen to you! (present dead crow as proof)!
4:12 am
sandyloo

although i have seen our border collie getting them too
4:13 am
sandyloo

every morning when i get up there is a whole crowd of crows on the chook pen fence!
4:13 am
mrpresident

crows are creepy
4:14 am
sandyloo

foxes are worse-they kill the chooks and only take one to eat-they rip the heads off and leave the others-they kill for pleasure
4:15 am
mrpresident

foxes are mad!
4:16 am
sandyloo

between the goannas, the crows and the fox, and the bordercollie, we are lucky to get any eggs
4:16 am
sandyloo

But we do
4:18 am
mrpresident

hopefully, being on the 'outskirts' of Sydney, we will not suffer that too much!
4:19 am
rbud

wasn't it crows involved in the bird flu thing a few years back? dead ones were found that tested positive?
4:20 am
sandyloo

i dont think that was in Aus, rbud - do you remember anything like that Pres
4:21 am
mrpresident

we didn't get bird flu here, so they didn't report on it so much... so no, didn't hear about that!
4:26 am
rbud

here's a link, mentions crows, but it confuses me - starts out talking about "bird flu" and goes to "West Nile virus." http://tiny.cc/gVmtu
4:31 am
mrpresident

will have to check that out rbud... it may be a strain of west nile virus...

5:48 am
herinfernallady

hi
5:49 am
sandyloo

hi herin
5:49 am
JBV

hi, sandy, what grade/age does your daughter teach?
5:50 am
herinfernallady

waves.
5:50 am
JBV

hi herin
5:50 am
sandyloo

she teaches grade 5 at cable beach primary in Broome
5:51 am
sandyloo

9-10 year olds
5:51 am
sandyloo

a lot of aboriginal children in her class
5:52 am
sandyloo

when they come to school
5:52 am
JBV

i've been in education all my life - i love being around children - it keeps your brain young to see how they perceive the world and have to learn so much of what we take for granted
5:52 am
sandyloo

she is a great teacher and the kids love her, she has devised all sorts of ways of getting them to school and it has been working
5:53 am
JBV

great to hear it, sandy, she must be wonderful
5:54 am
JBV

i also work with children whose language and culture is different from that of the school system and we do a lot of work with parents too, to help them become acculturated
5:54 am
sandyloo

she is but she has always had a great thirst to learn herself-I taught her to read by 3 years old
5:54 am
sandyloo

by grade one, she was reading novels
5:55 am
JBV

i was like her, too, sandy, and so was my son, baby readers, but it makes it so much more difficult to understand why some people cannot catch on to this basic basic skill
5:55 am
herinfernallady

I am good at reading stuffed at remembering and school is giving me the shits
5:56 am
sandyloo

unfortunately, the parents of these children are not very caring about education. that is the problem- the children are often not fed and dont go to sleep untill 2 or 3 am and are often abused
5:56 am
sandyloo

it is a vicious circle that is very difficult for them to escape from. it is soooo sad
5:57 am
JBV

herin, what are you studying?
5:57 am
sandyloo

wedding dresses
5:57 am
herinfernallady

Legal
5:57 am
JBV

sandy, i don't know the parents, but "caring" about education is probably lower on their scale of survival issues, if they are very poor
5:58 am
JBV

do you have a lot of assigned reading? that can be overwhelming
5:58 am
sandyloo

they have a lot of money and help from the government- they were given a lot of money recently (up to 10,000 dollars depending on how many kids) and they had to close the bottle shops
5:59 am
sandyloo

the parents dont spend the money on the kids-
5:59 am
herinfernallady

No it just jacks me off that the slackers in the class got 82% High Distinction do fA and I get 74% and bust my non exsistant nuts off.
5:59 am
sandyloo

the schools employ aboriginal aides and encourage them to learn about their culture
5:59 am
JBV

sounds like they need a better program -
6:00 am
sandyloo

there are many different programs jb, it is such a tragedy.
6:00 am
JBV

sandy, i'd be interested to know what your daughter thinks of Sylvia Ashton Warner - she wrote the classic book on reading education for Maori children, back in the 60's i think
6:00 am
herinfernallady

That is because those people think that the world awes them a favour and there is no point throwing money at people if you aren't going to give them the tools to use it
6:00 am
crosshair

good morning everyone;)
6:01 am
sandyloo

the government shouldnt give them cash like they did -they should give them vouchers for food and clothes and services
6:01 am
herinfernallady

Hi Cross
6:01 am
JBV

that's what i meant by a better program - vouchers and training and jobs - all connected to a better life for the children
6:01 am
sandyloo

herin they are given every opportunity , we can just hope that a few will get through the system and go back to help their people
6:01 am
sandyloo

hi cross
6:02 am
sandyloo

I find it very upsetting when i go up there
6:02 am
JBV

i worked in a job training program for adults - teaching them English - but they also needed basic work skills, since most of them had never held a steady job before
6:02 am
herinfernallady

No the Government should spend the money on education. Pisses me off that they give all this money and then rich people bitch that their choosen PRIVATE school has no government help instead of the government schools not being 3rd world in some parts of the state so parents don't have to send their kids to a private school
6:03 am
mrpresident

infern, government schools get 1/3 of the government assistance that private school do... it is revolting
6:03 am
herinfernallady

excuse my lanfuafe
6:04 am
mrpresident

the private schools get heaps and heaps of government assistance, much more than the public system
6:04 am
crosshair

remember,the votes and help of the rich at election time are of more use than the average person
6:04 am

All i know is one of my friends kids HAS to go to a private school. The 2 schools in his area one is known as the correctional facility and the other is one that she went to and refuses to send anyone too
6:05 am

oh no sandy! you would be very surprised....

greasing the wheels
6:05 am
sandyloo

I find that very hard to believe , judging from the fees that some of those schools charge
6:05 am
mrpresident

the fees are what gives them more money
6:05 am
herinfernallady

She doesn't pay for the school the grandparents do

good chat, folks, however, I must be going off to start my day - i'll be back tonight

mrpresident

private schools get much more assistance than public schools
6:06 am
crosshair

see my note on greasing the wheels
6:07 am
sandyloo

but that extra assistance (fees) is not coming from the government
6:07 am

the DET sucks, they pay the private schools 3 times the money
6:08 am
crosshair

think of private and public schools like they are U.S regular hospitals v.s charity hospitals
6:08 am
Andree

i know private schools get assistance but not more than public schools as public schools are fully paid by government
6:08 am
sandyloo

do you lot mean to tell me that a private school gets more money from the government than a public school!?
6:08 am
mrpresident

our school get 87c per child per day... the private schools get 2.96 per child per day
6:08 am

Our public schools are very well supplied. Where Diana is teaching , they have amazing facilities
6:09 am
mrpresident

sandy, you will find that the P&C and parents are amazing at raising funds for that school
6:09 am
herinfernallady

Lucky them
6:09 am
crosshair

our public schools run on razor thin margins..the child supplies everything but the bloody blackboard!
6:10 am
Andree

the reason private schools get assistance is really simple, if they all closed tomorrow the whole system would break down as the public schools cannot take even the students they have now
6:10 am
herinfernallady

THat is because your daughter works at a highly disadvantaged school
6:10 am
mrpresident

We raise about $100,000 per year for our school, and if we 'put in money' from the parents, we get further assistance from the government.
6:10 am
mrpresident

so, imagine how much money private schools 'put in' and how much they get from the government???
6:11 am
herinfernallady

It gets my goat that PRIVATE schools get more. Its could private for a reason. If you want your kid to go to that school that is your choice. Sadly if you are like my friend that lives in a really bad violent area she has no choice but to get money from mum and dad to send her kid to a decent school that doesn't involve being mugged or bashed
6:11 am
sandyloo

I agree that P&Cs do provide a lot of assistance-I used to work on the P&C but we lived in a wealthy area with very well educated parents - I dont believe really that poorer areas would have that much support from their P&Cs -We had a jumble sale for instant and put in a swimming pool for our local primary school
6:11 am
mrpresident

so many people have no idea how private schools wrought the system
6:12 am
sandyloo

My kids went to private schools in high school and the fees were huge
6:13 am
crosshair

here a private school is nothing but a dream..thats how the other half live
6:13 am
mrpresident

we live in a wealthy area too, and we are dedicated to our public school... we donate heaps of money! so our kids get excellent facilities.
6:13 am
Andree

i really don't belong in this discussion as a fan of private schooling
6:13 am
mrpresident

I went to private school all my life...
my children are getting just as great an education in the public system (but we are in a very wealthy area)
6:13 am
herinfernallady

This kid has no chance but to go to a private school. It has nothing to do with prestige and snobbery it has everything to do with basic education
6:13 am
Andree

and public schooling whatever is best for the child and family
6:13 am
sandyloo

Andree I am a fan of private schooling too, but I still would like to see equal opportunity for all children
6:14 am
crosshair

so we suck it up and send our kid to the public schools and keeps tabs on fights /bullying etc and try to get him the best education we can..no choice
6:14 am
mrpresident

private schooling is excellent! much more facilities...
however, the public system is also very good, depending on where you live
6:15 am
Andree

i believe all kids have equal opportunity in our country just some kids dont grasp the opportunity
6:16 am
Andree

some just go to school and goof off
6:16 am
mrpresident

my children are in the public system, and are at the top of the system, cause they DO grasp the opportunity... I agree andree... but we push that school to give them the best they can have
6:16 am
sandyloo

We were lucky where we lived because the primary school was so excellent
6:16 am
mrpresident

correct sandy! we are in the same situation
6:17 am
Andree

thats where the parents who care about education are so great, there are parents out there who could not care less
6:17 am
herinfernallady

Cross what if i told you this school doesn't even wood work metal work classes um basic shtuff
6:17 am

6:18 am

I used to eat seafood lasagne a *lot* as a kid - wouldn't eat meat and adored seafood and it was a way to get protein into me. And I adored it
7:33 am

I'm not convinced about whelks either LOL. I'd never had one before this morning, the fish market people let me try one. We'll see ...

what is today's icon theme?
8:06 am
Frances

Yes Ata DNA proved he could not have been the murderer. Will be like landing on another planet.
8:06 am
Uniquity

Depending on where he lived, he might have been better off .. 27 years before it was overturned. He must have been serving a heavy duty sentence.
8:07 am
Atalante

he looked just completely dazed, confused and the press were all yelling at him. poor guy!
8:08 am

it was a murder conviction, but DNA now shows it couldn't have been him

its like that guy in Aaustria who keep his daughter imprisoned for 20 something years and fathered 7 children with her and kept half of them in the cellar too. If he was convicted of rape, he could be out of prison in 6 years!
8:11 am

Ata He has now pleaded guilty to all charges.

I know, thankfully!
8:12 am

Oh my. I had managed to mostly forget about him. Thanks Ata, my outrage is returning!
8:12 am

but if he hadn't done that ... the longest they could have convicted him was 15 years!!
8:13 am
Frances

Doesn't bare thinking about does it?
8:13 am
Atalante

yes, he is totally incomprehensible
8:13 am
Uniquity

It's scarier because he is not the first, nor likely the last. That this continues to seem like a good decision to individuals is very concerning.
8:14 am

He has also pleaded guilty to murder of one of the children.
8:14 am

I'd been nothing but friendly, pleasant and jovial with everyone, so there was no earthly need for it - but some are just that way, I suppose.

8:39 am
Atalante

well I can only think of 1 time that someone? lyn? asked a question about you in the log, and we discussed who you claim to be
8:39 am

Just found out, Judi - as people who do that sort of thing eventually become.
8:40 am
J. C.

I don't 'claim' to be anyone - I'm simply me.
8:40 am

oh yes, Judi, apparently one is not allowed to discuss things. Discussing is bad
8:40 am
J. C.

You know very well who that someone was . . .
8:40 am
J. C.

Oh, there's a marked difference between 'discussing' someone and mocking or slagging them off . . .
8:40 am
Atalante

um. I totally can't remember. Because actually that convo wasn't a big deal
8:41 am
J. C.

Yes, that is bad, where I come from - but then I'm not nasty minded enough to engage in such, with no reason.
8:41 am
Atalante

ok, let's go and look and see who else is mean adn wicked
8:41 am

Not to you, I'm sure . . . you weren't the one being publicly 'discussed' in such a nasty fashion.

Don't feel bad, Tragic. Some of our police officers do mentoriing at the elementary school (5-7 year olds). The language those little charmers spew would curl anyone's hair.

Voltaire is a gothy / alternative musician who tours mainly with a gypsy band. he writes very funny, very clever stuff

9:19 am
Judi

Hi, Eva.
9:19 am
Atalante

no ... it was something ... Cartoon Network something?
9:20 am

Angel's theme song is just orchestral sort of music. I know because I am rewatching season four right now :)
9:20 am
Atalante

if you ever get the chance to see him live, Eva, you really really really should go. He is *wonderful* live
9:20 am
Judi

Clue for the El7, please?
9:20 am

pretty sure it was Angel -- there were no lyrics, just the orchestral

If Voltaire did that, I like Voltaire. I like Angel more though...Mmm...Lori would be so unimpressed with me.

Most fairy stories are horrible in there own ways oodle
1:33 pm
hurshy

children's stories are meant to send clear messages, like, don't go messing in places you don't know anything about, i think, so they have to be scary.
1:34 pm
Atalante

Baba Yaga is very scary!
1:34 pm
hurshy

and i think that when you're a kid you have less sense of that kind of stuff BEING scary. my recollection from being a child is that i wasn't scared by any of those stories, but was scared by things i SAW, like the wizard of oz.
1:34 pm
oodleberry

but I even tried to plant a bean pole... didn't get higher than 6 feet... I was P.Oed
1:35 pm
oodleberry

hurshy I was traumatized by the wizard of oz... to this day I cannot watch it
1:36 pm
hurshy

i think it must be connected to a sense of your own mortality - i used to love all amusement park rides, the scarier the better, and now, i still like a normal roller coaster, but these humongous drops at 90 degree angles and whatnot, no thank you.
1:36 pm
caitlyn

That is so true hurshy, although Hansel and Gretal put me off playing in the woods!1
1:37 pm
hurshy

but they may have made the story on purpose to put kids off playing in the woods - or at least, talking to strangers and taking candy from them...
1:39 pm
oodleberry

hihohiho it's off to workOUT I go...lalalalalalalalalalalalalalala hihohiho
1:40 pm
hurshy

i mean i know that wesley will not believe that he should not touch stove burners until someone yells at him for trying to loudly enough to scare him, or he burns himself. unfortunately it seems like fear and pain are the only things that can interfere with the curiosity of a kid.
1:40 pm
oodleberry

true

there may be times when the scars from pain would be less lasting than those from fear - it must be so hard to be a parent and try to decide where that line is.

Does anyone else think that Glinda was the real villain?
1:42 pm
Atalante

does that question suppose that I've seen Wizard of Oz??
1:42 pm

you can't go by the glinda in the movie, tor - she was NOTHING like the real glinda (from the books).
1:42 pm

Hi and bye lynxxx see you tomorrow
1:50 pm
lynxxx

Hursh, how was yr meeting, any progress on the greening of the office?
1:50 pm
lynxxx

bye Caitlyn
1:51 pm
hurshy

my meeting was superficially fine, for i was conciliatory and apologetic. hopefully have erased hard feelings. but don't see any way forward that isn't terribly inefficient, and foresee wanting to transfer as soon as the economy allows.
1:52 pm
Atalante

oh lyn - it was you I was talking to the other day about JC, wasn't it?
1:53 pm
lynxxx

Oh, rather dissappointing then Hursh, still there is a lot to be said for peace in the interim
1:53 pm
lynxxx

It was Ata
1:54 pm
Atalante

you are likely to be ignored by him then from now on, or told you are 2 faced adn evil
1:54 pm
Atalante

just warning you!
1:54 pm
hurshy

ahhh, melodrama that doesn't involve me!
1:55 pm
Atalante

yep!!
1:55 pm
lynxxx

!!! I've been found out at last, lol
1:55 pm
Atalante

lol yeah that was my thought. darn. we suck
1:56 pm
Atalante

he was quite nasty to me earlier, I just wanted to let you know ... he has "friends" who report chat log things to him!
1:56 pm
hurshy

would it be horribly gauche to ask for details?
1:57 pm
Atalante

absolutely lol. I'd tell you, but it would get reported back to him and i'd be even eviller than I am now
1:57 pm
hurshy

of course i AM left-handed, so it makes sense for me to be gauche.
1:57 pm
hurshy

ah send me a fb message
1:58 pm
Atalante

will do
1:58 pm
hurshy

i mean if you want.
1:58 pm
hurshy

i sort of want to quit fb though. my mom joined. :(
1:58 pm
Atalante

oh no!
1:59 pm
Atalante

that does spoil it rather
1:59 pm
Atalante

my godmother is a member, but she's wonderful so that's ok
1:59 pm
hurshy

yeah, i wasn't telling her about my work stuff and then she saw something on my wall and started asking me about it, blah
2:00 pm
Atalante

yes, you need a few places that your parents ca't see
2:01 pm
hurshy

but of course i imagine that one loves one's kids so much that that notion would seem offensive from the parental end.
2:02 pm
Atalante

sometimes. sometimes they do get it though
2:02 pm
hurshy

well luckily i have in the past few years learned the art of "i don't want to talk about it"
2:03 pm
Atalante

my mum and my godmother are best friends. I'm very close to my godmother's daughter. When we started getting close both of us went to our parents and said, look, we're not going to tell you whatever we learn from each other. etc etc. we will have a level of privacy in the friendship
2:03 pm
Atalante

and luckily both mothers agreed utterly!
2:03 pm
hurshy

wow, how old were you?
2:04 pm
Atalante

18 or so - we've known each other since she was born (she's a few years younger than me) but we suddenly clicked back then
2:04 pm
Atalante

and likewise Lu and I don't want to know the gory details of our parents friendship!
2:04 pm
Atalante

the moral of the story is that sometimes parents can surprise you :)
2:04 pm
hurshy

ah, i see, i was going to be impressed if you guys did that at age 6 or something :)
2:05 pm
Atalante

lol no. that *would* have been impressive!
2:05 pm
Atalante

but sometimes it's easier to blurt stuff out like that when you're younger
2:06 pm
hurshy

it's easier to blurt stuff out, but harder to think of it in such sophisticated terms
2:06 pm
Atalante

yes, absolutely
2:12 pm
hurshy

my mom said grilled cheese would not be a good thing to eat. but if i'm craving it, maybe that's a sign that this particular virus would be killed off by it.
2:12 pm
Atalante

if you really want it, go for it
2:12 pm
Atalante

if it stays down, you'll feel better. If you feel worse, you'll know not to do that again :)
2:13 pm
Atalante

and check your fb messages :)
2:13 pm
hurshy

but so far everything i eat stays down, but i feel worse. and ok.
2:13 pm
Atalante

well if its staying down, just eat what your stomach tells you it wants
2:14 pm
hurshy

i still have problems at other end of spectrum
2:14 pm
Atalante

tablets are available for that :)
2:15 pm
hurshy

is all very befuddling, have never had stomach bug last longer than 24 hours before in my recollection
2:15 pm
Atalante

get some tabs, take them, then you might get some nutrition and water into you
2:15 pm
chiley

Hi Babblers. I've been sitting quietly all day while I finished the grid and watching the chat. I understand what the drama is about but not sure who the alter ego is. Any one want to clue me?
2:17 pm
hurshy

i think the alter ego is my stomach.
2:18 pm
chiley

Oh Hurshy, sorry you
2:18 pm
chiley

you're under the weather.
2:18 pm
Atalante

I would love to. But I don't think it's fair to just give out his name. um. thinks.
2:19 pm
chiley

I read back on the chat that he linked, but I couldn't find a hint
2:19 pm
Atalante

oh because you mean we didn't shout out that we were talking about him? goodness me. bad us :)
2:19 pm
chiley

I don't want to make it worse, so I can wait and watch. Maybe it will come up.
2:19 pm
Atalante

2:24 pm
Atalante

norme ..
2:24 pm
lynxxx

Hi Ata, wasn't us but was when Liz was concerned with being stalked by another Mikey, which I think was a fair reaction. It pays to be a bit cautious with new aquaintances, whether face-to- face or online I think.
2:24 pm
hurshy

i don't THINK so, i tried every vowel combo i could think of.
2:25 pm
HarryHood

i think we're stuck on the same word hursh
2:25 pm
Atalante

yeah ... I wanted to say something though, if he's been reading chat logs. I didn't want you to get the same shit
2:25 pm
HarryHood

got it!
2:25 pm
hurshy

i'm stuck on four M's from there, so, probably one is yours, yes, lol
2:25 pm
HarryHood

HarryHood

2:28 pm
chiley

Ok I googled....so one player used initials and the alter ego uses the name, right?
2:28 pm
lynxxx

I HATE the cat sounds - there seems to be so many spelling variations
2:29 pm
hurshy

first i have is one's comfortable area of operation, harry
2:29 pm
HarryHood

2:29 pm

2:35 pm
Atalante

brb, I need to make seafood sauce :)
2:35 pm
hurshy

*can't think about seafood sauce*
2:35 pm
rbud

*curious about flying car*
2:36 pm
lynxxx

hi Rbud
2:36 pm
hurshy

yeah it flew from england to timbuktu - i sent my dad an article about it awhile ago. very cool.
2:36 pm
HarryHood

http://www.terrafugia.com/ was just on a news story
2:36 pm
HarryHood

all my books in 5th grade had pictures of the "highway of the future" with takeoff and landing lanes
2:37 pm
hurshy

it didn't fly all the way, it flew and drove alternately.
2:37 pm
rbud

oooh, very interesting, wasn't aware of it, thanks!
2:39 pm
HarryHood

Anticipated purchase price: $194,000.
2:40 pm
HarryHood

(almost as much as a minivan)
2:40 pm
hurshy

which is just slightly above what i paid for my condo...
2:41 pm
HarryHood

yes, but does your condo get 30 mpg highway?
2:41 pm

ooh, a slew of doneness
2:57 pm

I feel very inadequate *glares at the grid*
2:57 pm
Lizsark

Ata, I only have a mo, but just popped in to apologise to you *blush*
2:58 pm
Atalante

*giggles*
2:58 pm
lynxxx

I gave up at 40 and went to list, too hard for me!
2:58 pm
lynxxx

Hi Liz
2:58 pm
Lizsark

No really :( I sent you a message on FB :)
2:59 pm
Lizsark

hi Lynxx...sorry I really do only have a second. Must dasy - Ata I honestly didn't mean to land you in it. *Kicks self hard*
2:59 pm
Lizsark

*dash* even
2:59 pm
Atalante

lol dearest, don't even think about it! I'll reply on fb!
2:59 pm
Judi

Gah! The flying car is awesome! I want one. The showroom price is a little steep though.
2:59 pm
Lizsark

ok :( see you all later, bye :)
3:00 pm
Judi

And it's not very fuel efficient. But it would cut down on the daily commute substantially.
3:01 pm
Atalante

how much are they charging?
3:02 pm
Judi

$194,000 American, Ata.
3:02 pm
Atalante

wow!
3:02 pm
Judi

I know. My house isn't worth that (least I don't think so).
3:04 pm
Judi

I would think an electrically powered hover craft would be more practical and affordable. Then again, I'm not an engineer, so what the hell do I know.
3:06 pm
lynxxx

Finished, a very unsatisfactory grid for me. The words were easy but I just couldn't see them for some reason
3:06 pm
Atalante

though I suppose a decent Ferrari or Lambourghini would go for about the same price, and I'd rather have a flying car
3:06 pm
Atalante

yay lynx!
3:06 pm
rbud

congrats, lyn!!!
3:06 pm
Judi

Yay, Linxxx. There was a lot of word blindness caused by this grid.
3:07 pm
lynxxx

That's a pretty cool looking plane!
3:07 pm
Atalante

it is a very grouchy grid
3:07 pm
Judi

Yes, Ata. If one had the money, the flying car would be ever so much more, er, economical.
3:08 pm
Judi

And only 20 hours of flying instruction required! I could do that in my sleep!
3:08 pm
rbud

don't know what I'd think if I saw it coming down the road - amazing!
3:08 pm
Atalante

the skies are about to become even more unsafe ...
3:08 pm
Judi

Compared to a helicopter, it's downright cheap!
3:09 pm
Judi

Wonder how much runway/roadway is required for takeoff?
3:10 pm
Atalante

wonder what happens in a crash - is it a plane or a car?
3:10 pm
rbud

imagine the cost of insurance!
3:10 pm
Judi

I assume you would have to fly at a fairly low ceiling. Just have to watch out for birds and power lines. Hail would be problematic as well.
3:11 pm
Judi

It would be a disaster!
3:11 pm
Atalante

yes!
3:12 pm
rbud

darnit, need another W - have wa x 7 and wo
3:12 pm
lynxxx

The aviation authorities are ging to get headaches trying to keep up with this development...think of all the new regulations
3:12 pm
lynxxx

another wa Rbud
3:12 pm
Atalante

can you imagine! they must be tearing their hair out
3:13 pm
Judi

I think they should have an aquatic version. Put floats on it so you could land on water. Of course, that would precipitate the need for one with skis. Just land on the slopes - forget those pesky lift fees.
3:13 pm
rbud

people say it is different from the american system, but i'm not sure i quite get where the important distinctions lie
3:34 pm
Atalante

we don't have court tv!
3:34 pm
hurshy

well, besides that.
3:34 pm
Atalante

big difference
3:35 pm
hurshy

but i thought it was different even before there was tv.
3:35 pm
Atalante

i'm sure it is, but I don't know enough about the US system to comment properly
3:35 pm
hurshy

i mean someone said something about it not being an adversarial system, but you do have defense and prosecution
3:36 pm
Atalante

yes
3:36 pm
hurshy

is there someone whose job it is to undertake an independent and impartial investigation?
3:36 pm
jimmel

hurshy, could you please re-clue the et 7 with a bit more clarity? not seeing it...
3:36 pm
Atalante

don't think so
3:37 pm
hurshy

that was el7, et7 is e + ar****** well
3:37 pm

oh, no wonder...already had el 7. Thanks and I'll go get some new glasses!

I've been trying to 'do' art lately. Failed miserably, in general. I need some sort of instruction. And a magic gift, lol.
3:47 pm
Atalante

it's impossibel to fail at art *so says a modern art teacher*
3:47 pm
Atalante

I hate modern art teachers
3:48 pm
Uniquity

I like things with guidelines. I am more a colourer than an artist
3:49 pm
Atalante

me too really
3:49 pm
Atalante

but no-one makes the guidelines for me so I have to do them too
3:50 pm
Uniquity

Untrue! I have seen your gorgeous work. Don't be self deprecating
3:51 pm
Atalante

I'd still rather just colour in things :)
3:52 pm
Uniquity

lol
3:52 pm
Uniquity

Colour all your knotwork
3:52 pm
Atalante

I do :)
3:53 pm
Atalante

next big knotwork thing I do, I'll scan in the line art and then you can print it out and oclour it to your heart's content
3:53 pm
Uniquity

Heh. I used to colour in graph paper from my dads work.
3:54 pm
Atalante

so did I :)
3:55 pm
Uniquity

I say, we seem to be hogging the chat. Where has the world gone?
3:55 pm

3:56 pm
Atalante

where's your mother? I haven't seen her today
3:56 pm
Uniquity

You must have been a handful! Lori is letting the boys use the computer over march break, so I haven't seen her either.
3:57 pm
Atalante

what a nice mother!
3:57 pm
Uniquity

It's true!
3:57 pm
Atalante

yes, but at the same time, mum could give me pens and paper and I'd be occupied all day
3:57 pm

i have always thought that if one has to be on a totem pole, i'd rather be at the bottom. but i'm starting to get really sick of it. i feel like i need a plan to get to a different place. but even doing a master's one course at a time, each class is like $2000, and my husband is a student and we have a mortgage and i don't know what to do. and i don't even know how to know what's a good degree for me to get.
4:48 pm

i don't want to get a degree where it won't help me get a better job.

Hursh - Not all companies require that you have degrees specific to positions in question. I would think that some sort of training would be needed for accountancy, but I also wouldn't think it would need a masters.
5:04 pm
k21eyes

Wiat...start your OWN game show and be the host. Probably get a good salary
5:04 pm
circe

generally, a bachelor's yes, for the accounting, but then you are set and there is a lot you can do with it -- including some normal 8-5 jobs with fairly stable people! :)
5:04 pm
kje

not at all... most accountants are bachelors
5:04 pm
kje

and book keepers need no degree
5:05 pm
hurshy

i have a bachelors', but it's in psych.
5:05 pm
circe

also, my understanding now is that a lot of state governments are hiring accounting people -- to do auditing work without the degree ---
5:06 pm
kje

OK, must poof - later all - good luck hursh... and rich winnings uni!
5:06 pm
circe

then you had some math - stats etc...that would figure in
5:06 pm
Uniquity

I know someone who is trained (and worked) in computers for decades, then switched to accounting recently with very minimal schooling required. Cost efficient!
5:06 pm
k21eyes

Uni can be a game show host and Hurshy can be the sidekick!
5:06 pm
hurshy

well, and i'm just really good at math.
5:06 pm
cherlyq63

depends, some companies will take work in the place of a degree
5:07 pm
hurshy

that sounds good, uni - do you know any more details about how the switch was made?
5:07 pm
Uniquity

It all depends, really. You've no idea what someone deems you qualified to do until you ask/interview.
5:07 pm
hurshy

maybe i should look into my state gov't about the auditing thing.
5:07 pm
circe

certainly it is an area to look into!
5:08 pm

after all, i AM annoyed about all those swindlers.
5:08 pm

Well, the fact that I live in Canada and you in the States probably makes a difference, but I believe it was only some sort of community college sort of night class thing.

i used to ice skate every year for my birthday...did a little rollerskating too when i was younger...
havent done either in quite a while...
6:08 pm
stidmama

the difference between the two is that with figure skates the "stop" is at the toe, and with rollerblades the stop is at the heel. On only one foot. You stick that foot a little in front, raise up the toe and "squat" to put weight on it

i even got it all via Freecycle, so if it doesnt work out, no money lost!
6:10 pm
Dorens

hi all
6:10 pm
stidmama

ah, you make my mama heart proud, dear! *serves brownies and milk*
6:10 pm
J. C.

Yes, stidmama - a good idea!

hey Dorens
6:10 pm
stidmama

hello Dorens!
6:10 pm
J. C.

Hi, Dorens . . .
6:11 pm
Dorens

and i can eat all the virtual brownies I want... the only kind i can eat this week. thanks stid and hi rep, jc and evaN
6:11 pm
J. C.

Oh good, EvaN - smart way to go! ;)
6:11 pm
oodleberry

mama, where do you live if I may ask?
6:11 pm
EvaNadine

brownies + milk are why i NEED the rollerblades!
heh
6:11 pm
J. C.

Virtual brownies probably aren't very satisfying, though?
6:11 pm
stidmama

(((Dorens))) I am not dieting this week. I will be sensible next week when I can stay at home and relax...
6:12 pm
stidmama

Pacific Northwest, oodles, why?
6:12 pm
stidmama

rofl EvaN!
6:12 pm
stidmama

I am tired of all the snow/hail/rain/sleet/cold... so I am "sunny place" hopping
6:12 pm
Dorens

i have decided i need to seriously lose 5 pounds (did no exercise while mending the broken rib). which is why i should be downstairs on the treadmill right now!!
6:12 pm
oodleberry

just curious... cause you said you lived by the border of Canada and US if I am not mistaken
6:13 pm
J. C.

It's OK Dorens - I won't tell! ;)
6:13 pm
Dorens

puerto rico would be a beautiful place to be right now, i agree stid!
6:13 pm
stidmama

well, "near" being a relative term. Apparently the same distance in the UK would be an unthinkable burden... LOL
6:13 pm
EvaNadine

BF + i are trying to lose 5 pounds in 1 month.
thats not much, but im not even sure im capable.
6:13 pm
Dorens

i have five more minutes here, kick me out if you see me hear at 6:19
6:13 pm
stidmama

I loved Puerto Rico, es un pais muy amable!
6:14 pm
stidmama

yes EvaN, you can accomplish that. Did you ever see The Matrix movie?
6:14 pm
Dorens

eva, if it's five between the two of you, that would be feasible
6:14 pm
EvaNadine

yes......
6:14 pm
stidmama

okay Dorens *puts on boots*
6:14 pm

hello Katie!
6:14 pm
stidmama

okay, when the little guru boy is talking to Neo, remember?
6:14 pm
stidmama

He says, "The trick is to realize, there is NO spoon."
6:15 pm
Dorens

hi Katie
6:15 pm
J. C.

It's not that hard with exercise, EvaN - that's how I lose when I want and need to. I find dieting doesn't really work, other than cutting out fattening treats, but moving a lot more does. If I don't exercise, nothing happens - when I do so regularly, then I do lose it, gradually.
6:15 pm
EvaNadine

so, the trick is to realize that im not fat??
6:15 pm
stidmama

You just apply that to whatever utensil you use to eat that one extra piece of ____ (fill in the blank) and the pounds melt off!
6:15 pm
Dorens

no, there's no spoon so you can't eat the ice cream!
6:15 pm
stidmama

at least, that is what works for me.
6:15 pm
J. C.

Eat everything with chopsticks, stid?
6:15 pm
KatieMcG

I've been doing weight watchers since January and it is really working for me, however now got to the stage that I do need to move more like JC said
6:16 pm
stidmama

precisely, Dorens!
6:16 pm
J. C.

That would slow me down - I am hopeless using them! :P
6:16 pm
stidmama

I already almost do, JC! LOL but then I have been using them for almost 40 years so... not too hard for me.
6:16 pm
J. C.

Yes, I find regular long walks and cycling are very good, for burning the fat off . . .
6:16 pm
oodleberry

ok I'm confooooozed
6:16 pm
stidmama

oh! i have 100 words!!!!
6:16 pm
Dorens

at 40, i realized that every few years I need to decrease the caloric intake and increase the exercise. But it is getting harder and harder to do that!
6:16 pm
stidmama

why are you confuzzled, oodles?
6:17 pm
KatieMcG

*sigh* I hate moving more lol
6:17 pm
J. C.

Ooh, good for you, stid - I don't, and I'm dead jealous! :P
6:17 pm
stidmama

yes Dorens, soon you and I shall be eating nothing and exercising non-stop. and STILL gaining weight!
6:17 pm
J. C.

I'll lend you my dog, Katie - she'll take you for walks! ;)
6:17 pm
Dorens

yay stid. . i need 14 more
6:17 pm
stidmama

Katie -- get another hamster, let him out of the cage and then catch him! Do this three times a day...
6:17 pm
oodleberry

about the spoon and diet etc...
6:17 pm
Dorens

I have a couple of years on you stid, which is why I'm just about there now

I think that a dog would be about the only thing to get me out the house until summer. Lol stid, chasing hamster and keeping kitties away would certainly keep me fit

J. C.

Erm - its thing, I meant to type.
7:24 pm
cherlyq63

what is a babble expert, or do you mean lickety's
7:24 pm
Frances

Just heard that Natasha Richardson has died.
7:25 pm
J. C.

It's a programme you can get from Lickety, cheryq . . .
7:25 pm
sandyloo

sorry fran but who is she?
7:25 pm
sandyloo

cheryl, babble expert is a great thing devised by lickety where everything is on the same page
7:26 pm
J. C.

She was an actress, Sandy . . .
7:26 pm
Frances

Actress married to Liam Neeson
7:26 pm
J. C.

Yes, Sandy - a great thing if it works. It simply won't, for me . . . not sure why, but the word list and the chatter box won't load, they just 'hang'.
7:26 pm
cherlyq63

so when I use lickety's babble clues thats the babble expert or am I missing something
7:26 pm
sandyloo

oh then she is quite young-what happened ?
7:27 pm
cherlyq63

snow boarding accident while taking private lessons
7:27 pm
sandyloo

there are two things cheryl, one is the normal lickety and the other is a program called babble expert
7:27 pm
Frances

She had a skiing accident. Serious head injury.
7:27 pm
J. C.

No, cherty - the 'Babble Expert' is just a special browser, that hast the same word list, plus the grid and normal list beside it, then the chatterbox - so everything is all in one.
7:27 pm
J. C.

You can still do it without that - just means alt-tabbing between the normal page and the list page.
7:28 pm
sandyloo

that is terrible , I really like Liam Neeson
7:28 pm
Frances

Although they are saying that tne neurologist said that she might have already had some sort of aneurism and that is what caused her fall.

I read your profile sounds like my kitty who is female and will chase you around the house if your a stranger just to hiss at you. The boy cat Lucius AKA Rat boy has eaten 2 mobile chargers, caused my mobile to fry and eaten my laptop charger
