same way it will let some slang in but not others...im still fighting for the word 'hoon' to be allowed

Same way it will allow senor but not herr.

don't know "hoon" -- what is it?
2:21 am
J. C.

Now that's prejudice! :P
2:21 am
jillibus

is monsieur ok?
2:22 am
rolin

its the aussie word for 'yob'... enable lets yob in...so why not 'hoon'..?
2:22 am
BabbleRabble

complaining about enable is even less effective than trying to empty the ocean with a sieve

Haven't notice that one come up jilli.

Me, stare Trif. As if.

Yes - with that one eye of yours.

J. C.

Frances must be a cyclops . . .
2:53 am
Trifioso

ahem. I can personally attest that "yous" is completely a word here in Boston.
2:54 am
Frances

But if you click on it, it will wink at you.....in my profile.
2:54 am
J. C.

HAHAHA, apparently - and someone else from there was typing it as 'yoose' earlier, Trif.
2:54 am
Trifioso

I know, Frances! scared the h*ll out of me.
2:54 am
Trifioso

oooh, really? It wasn't Car, was it?

No, it wasn't car.eeyore, but I can't remember who it was now . . .

She is my little sister, did you know?
2:55 am
J. C.

Well no I didn't, but then again I don't know either of you yet, really.

the eu4 makes me wonder....JC, other Brits, do you hear of any interest on the part of Brits to change over from pound sterling, or is everyone happy with things they way they are?
3:04 am

3:05 am
J. C.

Well I'm happy with the way things are, and so are most people I know - resistance is not always futile! ;)
3:05 am
J. C.

Hmmm . . . 'kittehs'?
3:05 am
Haz1558

Trif, I don't know that there is any great move to change over. Some of us are still counting how much things would be in shilings and that's quite enough of a shock! Experience in South of Ireland was that changeover to the eu4 resulted in huge price rises.
3:06 am
Trifioso

thanks jc...just wondered if maybe people are a bit fed up having to exchange money when traveling and such
3:07 am
Trifioso

morning, haz! My sil and bil live in Cavan in Ireland, and it is quite a burden for them, having to exchange money everytime they need to go to their nearest grocers, which is in Northern Ireland, and thus on a diff currency. Total pain.
3:08 am
Haz1558

Good morning Trif et al. Some shops do accept eu4 although it does tend to be the bigger ones. It would be a pain having to pay out commission all the time.
3:08 am
Trifioso

forgive, JC - it's a holdover from cuteoverload.com, which I could live without, but the wee girls in this house luuuuurv
3:09 am
Haz1558

At the minute, with the exchange rate the way it is, there are more shoppers heading north than in the other direction.
3:09 am
Trifioso

the funniest part was when they got their first mobile bill after they moved - they are so close to the border that everytime Rachael was on the phone and wandered in to her kitchen, "roaming charges" applied, as she had "left the EU"
3:09 am
Haz1558

Has she learned to stand still?
3:10 am
Trifioso

knowing her, no! she is one of the busiest, most amazing women I know
3:11 am
Haz1558

It's a bit scary that the technology keeps quite such close tabs, isn't it?
3:11 am
Trifioso

their house is jaw dropping - a 30+ room pile built by a friend of Oliver Cromwells, and former home to one of Winston Churchill's aunts, or something....and then left derelict for years. I swear, you walk in and you can hear a cash register running. But they love restoring it, and are having a ball - 7 walled acres, 3 boys under 8 - heaven!
3:12 am

Hello everyone
3:12 am
Haz1558

Good evening lynxxx.
3:13 am
Trifioso

hello lynxx!
3:13 am
Haz1558

I'm assuming they keep the Oliver Cromwell connection quiet?
3:13 am
Trifioso

oh, gosh, I don't know - they are CoI, so maybe not?
3:14 am
Haz1558

Do they have to liaise with any sort of heritage organisation with regard to the restoration?
3:14 am
Trifioso

They do open the house for tours and such, at least 90 days a year, and thus receive good tax breaks, so maybe Ian mentions it on the tour.
3:14 am
lynxxx

Are they Irish born Trif?
3:15 am
Trifioso

I think so, yes. I know the house has it's own category in the historic houses section, and has since before they owned it. And yes, Lynxx, Rachael was born in raised in Cavan, so the locals are delighted at their return, and that they are using it as a family home and not some hotel.
3:15 am
Trifioso

Ian is from Dublin
3:16 am
Haz1558

I know that in the north and in the rest of UK, you can't just do what you like with an historic building - it can be a bit of a pain, to say the least. Still, it's great that it's being lived in and used again.
3:16 am

fascinating, I hope you have been able to visit them, would be great for the kids

;-)
3:19 am
Haz1558

That's great. We have a TV programme here called Grand Designs - many of the houses are built from scratch, others are restorations of old houses, some of them in ruins. It's fascinating to watch them being brought back from destruction but enormous patience is required to deal with the red tape as well as the problems of the build.
3:20 am
Trifioso

grand designs...sounds very interesting!
3:20 am
Trifioso

the best part is the double wine cellars - one for red wines, one for whites -- how posh is THAT!
3:21 am

It's a great programme, not your usual 'change a room in two seconds' approach.
3:21 am

One of our favorites here. They are even advertising here for new builds for Grand Designs Australia - don't know if kevin is coming out here for it

3:24 am
Haz1558

That would be interesting if he did, lynxxx. He'd have to keep coming back and forward, so many of the houses seem to take longer than expected to be built.

do the hosts help with the renovations?

3:25 am
Trifioso

we have a show called "This Old House" - I am thinking it is similar. they will feature one house for several weeks at a time, showing each part of the process.
3:25 am
Haz1558

Only to an extent, Trif. Kevin McLoud acts as a kind of interested observer who'll lend a hand now and again but not in a staged way.
3:25 am
herinfernallady

its just a quick drop in as I am at the gym waiting for my class to start
3:26 am

did you bring your lap top or something, or have you commandeered a gym comp to babble?
3:26 am
herinfernallady

second one triffs. my lap top is not happy without a cooling fan
3:27 am
Trifioso

oh, how funny are you!
3:27 am
lynxxx

I saw a show recently hosted by "The Hotel Inspector", seems to be on keeping historic homes 'afloat'. The one I saw was on a 15th century manor house - the garden was just too beautiful, even more than the house, which was jaw droppingly gorgeous
3:27 am
Haz1558

http://tinyurl.com/aw3ssv
is the address of the TV show (it's on our Channel 4)
3:27 am
Haz1558

Yes, the Hotel Inspector is another one which I enjoy watching just to see inside houses.
3:28 am

this Old House is not the same as Grand Designs

3:28 am
Trifioso

this is so frustrating! we have a channel here now called BBC America, and it was pretty good there for a while, but now it is dreadful, I am afraid. Literally six or seven episodes of cash in the attic a day. Not a bad show, I guess, but six eppys a day is a bit much.
3:29 am
Haz1558

'Cash in the attic' is not BBC's finest hour.
3:29 am
Trifioso

and nothing current at all.
3:29 am
Haz1558

If you have to have repeats, I'm sure they could have come up with something better.
3:29 am
Trifioso

I wish they would put on things like Strictly Come Dancing, or Britains' Got Talent, or any of the dramas that do so well.
3:30 am
Trifioso

BBC World News is always worth a watch, though.
3:30 am
herinfernallady

Do you rememeber "Selling Houses" Haz? The host of that now lives in Australia and so we have Selling Houses Australia, same format
3:30 am
Trifioso

And I know, I know, you are all still angry about the Tea in the Harbor and all, but hey - was that ANY reason to inflict S Club 7 on us?
3:31 am
Haz1558

'Selling houses' doesn't ring a bell. Who was the host?
3:31 am
herinfernallady

*mutters* something about waste of tea
3:31 am
Haz1558

We've forgotten all about S Club 7.

The name's not familiar, lynxxx, I'll google him to see if I recognise the face.
3:34 am

Yes, now that I see him, I recognise him.
3:34 am
herinfernallady

do you want to hear the most ridiculous rule they imposed on girls in the bulding that houses builders and Design students
3:34 am
Andree

maybe thats why he came here, if he is not recognised there
3:35 am
Haz1558

I recognise him now. There are so many shows on about selling houses etc that it's easy to lose track.
3:35 am
Trifioso

no skirts?
3:37 am
herinfernallady

Its better than that. The design students *obviously not the building grrls* have been told that they can not wear singlets and anything revealing or could be seen as revealing as its an OHS issue to the boys as distracted they could injury them selfs with tools
3:37 am
herinfernallady

I told teh teacher that it is the most sexist and disgusting rule I have ever heard. In summer girls will wear short skirts and singlets.
3:38 am
Trifioso

"obviously not the building girls" - erm, what did THAT mean?
3:39 am
Trifioso

and I find hot men in shorts in the summer pretty distracting, I must admit
3:39 am
herinfernallady

the girls that are training builders cant wear un safe clothes on site but it was the Design students that were told this. I told the co ordinator if that was me they could send me home to change I wouldn't
3:39 am
lynxxx

and its a really good time for the building 'guys' to practice their wolf whistles etc, they have a long standing tradition to maintain
3:40 am
Trifioso

lol, lynxx! I think that "not the building girls" thing was way mean.
3:40 am
herinfernallady

teehee Lynxx.And its not like the girls that go and stare at them through the glass either

4:27 am

reason for oodlesoberries is cause I fergotted my password for oodleberry... one day I forgot one letter in my password and got in on the original name

7:44 am
mom2han8

OK herin do tell.
7:44 am

Ok what you do is open your wardrobe door. You will likely freak out at the crap that threatens to eat you.
7:46 am
mom2han8

ok... that's step one...
7:47 am
herinfernallady

Just start small. Look at the clothes on the floor of the wardrobe. Pick up 5 items and try on each item. Shoes as well. Pretend you are at a store. If you can't put it on, its uncomfortable put it in the give / sell bag, If its really crappy bin it. If it needs fixing put in a fixing bag. If the items need a wash put it in the laundry basket. Seriously If you wouldn't walk out the store with it WHY THE HELL IS IT IN YOUR WARDROBE
7:48 am
robbie09

My daughter has advanced math in 7th grade and they are doing algebra... I can still help her, LOL.
8:18 am
mom2han8

they say that if you are good at word games you should be good at algebra, as it has "language" components in addition to math... don't know how true that is!
8:18 am

OH now Toady so you just have one black kitty now?

8:21 am
robbie09

I had the same problem when my son was younger, but now that he is in college...they don't give partial credit for answers anymore, so it's not an isssue
8:21 am
toadandtoadette

we will have to see about the dog though. Bryan'll be in medical school for a year; thus it'll be my dog since he'll never be home. so I have to decide if I really want the added resposibility.

OMG... the first day of 5th grade they had to take a test where they added two three digit numbers and the paper did not say to show your work... she got a zero... I had never gone to school and complained about anything... so the teacher said well how do I know she did not cheat? I about hit the roof... so i brought her in front of the teacher and fired off a bunch of the same type of equations, which she did in her head in front of the teacher.. needless to say her grade got changed... LOL.

Today I was informed that if you have classes in the building that houses the building students *they have a HUGE workshop and lots of glass so you can see in" you are not allowed to wear revealing clothes as its distracting to the boys. I told the teacher that it was the most ridiculous rule i had ever heard and that it was sexist. If a nice young lady can't wear a shortish skirt and singlet they can go get froged

So they spend 1/2 the time at rehearsals haranguing them, but there is just too much downtime for most of these kids...

Just thought I would tell you all a funny. Yesterday I took the hampster out for a romp in the grass and my cat was very upset that I didnt let her eat her. So this morning I woke up to a dead mouse in front of my bedroom door. I dont know if it was saying "see, I can get my own" or a threat to the hampster.

we have a three finger rule for sleeveless tops (the shoulders must be at least 3 fingers wide) and the rule for skirts is that they must be as long as your middle finger when you dangle your hand at your side.

A couple of years ago they had to send a kid home because she was wearing a sweatsuit that had Juicy plastered across the rump... so the parent wrote to the Board of Ed complaining about the policy... the kid was in 6th grade (so 11 or 12 years old)... I was like really this woman is crazy to think that that would ever be appropriate in middle school... she carried on about how much the outfit cost... like we cared.
8:30 am
mom2han8

yes herin it is both rude and archaic.
8:31 am
robbie09

she can still wear this expensive outfit outside of school!
8:32 am
harpjane

in a way, that's blaming the girls/women for having bodies. maybe they should put restrictions on the teenage boys instead?
8:32 am
mom2han8

Yes, of course... but would you really let your 11 year old wear that anywhere????
8:33 am
robbie09

apparently this mom did!
8:33 am
mom2han8

I am no prude, but I really think that is inappropriate attire for a pre-teen.
8:33 am
harpjane

no, but i know people who show up for COURT dressed like that....
8:33 am
herinfernallady

11 or 12 that is wrong. And its also to me enforcing this very wrong idea that because a woman looks like ''she's up for it'' she deserves what she gets or deserved to be harassed.
8:33 am

Well, yes... apparently she did. But it was just the craziest letter and discussion I ever had to engage in!

hola. :)
8:35 am
mom2han8

Herin... I don't subscribe to that way of thinking at all... but girls do dress to attract boys, that's a fact... but my thing is that just because they sell it does not mean you have to buy it for your pre-teen and expect that it will not be deemed inappropriate for school.
8:35 am
mom2han8

Listen, I am a size 12 and just because they sell something in my size does not mean I should wear it... LOL!

My kid at 13 is bordering on being a D cup... not real comfortable for her now, but in a few years I am sure she will love "the girls"... in any case, what this means for her is that she does not wear revealing shirts. Luckily, like I said, she is a bit of a prude so I don't have any arguments with her about it, but you should see the way some of these girls come to school... butt cheeks and boobs hanging out at 13 years old and then their parents are shocked when they are reprimanded for it...

hi cherly
10:37 am
kje

add an h to the end, and it is when jewish people return to israel to live - making al5h
10:37 am
nrkii

the reason I'm asking is because you're not the first person to say that
10:38 am
nrkii

not even the first person of the medical profession to say that
10:38 am
cherlyq63

oh i was giving wrong al 5 then sorry
10:38 am
kje

oh... I would need more info... and I had lost track (sorry) I thought he was still in the hospital at which point i would say - get him out!
10:38 am
nrkii

ah, okay
10:38 am
nrkii

yeah, I would never hold you to the advice, by the way
10:39 am
nrkii

but I am sorely tempted to plan his imminent escape
10:39 am
kje

i will say, I do not believe in swallow tests in these situations... do a bedside swallow eval and if he can eat, get the tube out... no data to suggest feeding tubes are helpful in 99% of situations
10:40 am
kje

why does he still need rehab, and why do you want him out now?
10:40 am
nrkii

they disconnected his feeding tube the other day, and have done a lot of swallow observation, but not doing the offiical BEST till tomorrow
10:40 am
nrkii

he's still a little weak, but I think strong enough to get around at home, and they haven't determined if he can swallow thin liquids yet
10:41 am
kje

but.... you do not need the offical best... you just let him eat!!! that is what the data says... it is very difficult for people to pass that fluoroscopic swallow eval, yet they do fine if just allwoed to eat
10:41 am
kje

and btw, feeding tubes do NOT prevent aspiration if thyat is why they are doing the swallow eval, they actually make it more likely a patient will aspirate
10:41 am
oodleberry

ok bbl
10:41 am
nrkii

they're letting him eat, but he's only just moved from honey-thick to nectar-thick... they're being VERY cautious, and it's getting annoying
10:42 am
nrkii

I kind of feel like they're just keeping him there longer than necessary
10:42 am
nrkii

no tubes anymore, thank goodness... he's off oxygen, and even had the trach removed

Exactly ata, if you don't know the answer because it is outside your field then say where you would get the answer i.e. retail specialist etc however if it is something you have just 'lost' then be honest. At the end the chair will give you a chance to add stuff, so if it comes back to you then you can answer it then
