good luck just remember what happened to us?
1:10 am
westford

did you keep the old one?
1:10 am
Just1Mar

yes but I kept to the same brand as the other 2 cause they have been great
1:11 am
westford

then you shouldn't have trouble
1:11 am
Just1Mar

no not keeping the old one cause the quebec government will give us $110 for buying an energy compliant large appliance and giving up the old energy sucking one!
1:11 am
westford

what style is it
1:12 am
Just1Mar

2 door side by side...what I'm used to and what is best for the space that it occupies...bought a whirlpool
1:12 am

good choice
1:12 am
jillibus

I get Consumer re[ports and a recent issue evaluated fridges -- I think only about 3 of 29 good ones were available in Canada.
1:13 am
jillibus

and none of the best ones
1:13 am
westford

first time for a side by side for us it's okay
1:14 am
Just1Mar

well I'm so used to it but thankfully have a deep freezer too
1:14 am

do Canadians close to the border buy in the US - and vice versa?
1:14 am
westford

no room for big things though.made an angel food cake with pineapple and whipped cream and had to keep it down stairs..which is good because it's a lot of trouble to go down there and get it
1:14 am
flosey

we don't lyn, but some do
1:15 am
Just1Mar

even thought the total cubic footage is 1 cubic foot less than my old one...the fridge part is much larger and the freezer part smaller cause it has crushed/cubed ice and water dispenser
1:15 am
jillibus

lynxx, there are problems, like duty, guarntees, etc
1:15 am
westford

we have that too and we really like it
1:16 am
Just1Mar

even though it's cheaper in the states lynnx..when you factor in the difference of the dollars (right now 10% less than US) plus shipping costs and whatevers...would cost more
1:16 am
westford

when we lived in Westford it seemed like a good idea to buy in NH because they don't have sales tax but Taxachusetts charges the tax anyway so it's a no win situation
1:17 am
BabbleRabble

are the fires in BC now under control?
1:17 am
Just1Mar

in order to bring back purchases made in the US of 1000$ one must have spent at least 48 hours in the states

Interesting, thanks
1:18 am

we could start a refrigerator smuggling business just
1:18 am
Just1Mar

i am very familiar with it as well
1:31 am

flosey -- news just saying this is the first night of four Celebration of Light fireworks
1:31 am
Just1Mar

i think it's because my stomach has shrunk considerably since I broke my foot....was just too damn hard to make/get something to eat...so now I've become accustomed to not eating
1:32 am
Just1Mar

BabbleRabble

muliebrity -- Word History: No matter how obstinate your wife or girl-friend may be, guys, this word has nothing to do with mules or muliness. Don't even think about going there. Muliebrity was borrowed from Latin Latin muliebritas "womanhood, womanliness", a noun based on mulier "woman"
3:25 am
Just1Mar

3:25 am
Just1Mar

3:27 am
westford

I plan to just he loves anything made with that
3:27 am
mrpresident

I did?? oh darn
3:28 am
Just1Mar

but make sure that you let the garlic and onions kinda stew for a least 1/2 hour before adding the other ingrdients and make sure the white wine is the last ingredient added
3:28 am
westford

she left to download pix said she's joining FB and will post them there
3:28 am
mrpresident

3:29 am
westford

3:29 am
westford

does it freeze well?
3:30 am
Just1Mar

yes it does
3:30 am
westford

perfect
3:30 am
Just1Mar

but it's the perfect summer sauce to make...meatless pasta dish with lovely salad and glass of wine...
3:31 am
Just1Mar

crusty bread garlic or otherwise
3:31 am
westford

I'm thinking of freezing it for when the kids are home at Christmas
3:31 am
westford

3:31 am
westford

speaking of kids when are they moving in?
3:32 am
Just1Mar

well if you make it soon...I'll bet you will have it many times over well before Christmas
3:32 am
Just1Mar

it's so not a major deal to make like a meat spaghetti sauce
3:32 am
westford

I go on cooking sprees which is why I like having a freezer
3:33 am
Just1Mar

for sure but if kept in freezer too long will lose flavour
3:33 am
westford

we'll have to test and retest it lol
3:35 am
Just1Mar

well I've been making it for more than 20 years and I have perfected it over that time so if you follow the instructions you will benefit from my trials
3:35 am
Just1Mar

it's just a matter of adding your own amounts of spices herbs and chillis to your taste
3:36 am
Just1Mar

4:10 am

4:13 am

Good morning FM. You knew the words to red, red wine off the top of your head?
4:13 am

***I begrudgingly defer to FM's brilliance***
4:36 am
FMitch

perhaps I should douse her to wash off the dust, what do you think?
4:36 am
Haz1558

She might end up a sticky, muddy mess.
4:36 am
Haz1558

Do it.
4:36 am

Yes. I'd trade him for a printer shrink. My printer is refusing to play ball.
6:20 am
FMitch

oh whats up with it or should I say what is it not doing?
6:21 am
Haz1558

It's just ignoring me. I allowed it to run out of paper, switched it off by mistake and now it's sulking.
6:22 am
Haz1558

Any minute now I may just have to resort to reading the manual.
6:22 am
Wolvie

no no - never that!
6:22 am
Haz1558

But that'll only happen when I've explored every other av6/30.
6:22 am

HAve you tried clearing the print job, turning it off and back on with paper in it?
6:23 am
mrpresident

kick it haz
6:23 am
FMitch

lol MrP
6:23 am
Haz1558

It's refusing to clear one of the print jobs. Kicking is on my list, mrp, the others have said that it yields good results.
6:23 am
mrpresident

I like simple solutions
6:24 am

hi MrP
6:24 am

ah the hung print job will be the problem then
6:24 am

hi wolvie, FM, haz et al :)
6:24 am
Haz1558

So, is kicking the best solution for an unaborted printing?
6:24 am
Wolvie

there is a....well, dangling thought there fm
6:25 am
mrpresident

switch the stupid thing off at the power point, stare at it with the look of death, turn it back on and I promise it will behave.
6:25 am
FMitch

not really Haz but you might feel better afterwards
6:26 am
mrpresident

I am just selling my reputation for kicking printers and making them work!
6:26 am
Haz1558

I'm going to give it the silent treatment for a while longer. Then I'll spring into action once it's nicely lulled into a false sense of security.
6:26 am

better than a dangling participle Wolvie :)

theres a babble fan page
6:49 am

No, FM, it's just than I'm still half asleep. :-)
6:49 am
Wolvie

hmm - ty marilyn
6:49 am
FMitch

If I remember correctly there is a Babblers worldwide group somwhere in there.
6:50 am
Nef

there are several babble pages there (never thought to look for a fan page though)
6:50 am
marilyn992

dont you see real names on those pages?
6:51 am
Haz1558

I'm not on facebook, but I think people use their real names rather than babble names, and if you don't know someone's real name, it's confusing.
6:52 am
mom2han8

On FB people probably don't put in their babble screen name
6:52 am
Nef

The reason I'm asking is I keep getting reminders of people who have a list of Babble friends, but I can't figure out if I know the people or not. They are real names and faces; I just don't know their Babble names
6:52 am
mom2han8

Did you sign up to be a fan on one of the babble pages on FB? If so, that is why you are getting reminders.
6:53 am
mom2han8

It is "suggesting" for you, as it does with friends of friends, etc...
6:53 am
Nef

(Gosh, I'm so tired I don't think I'm making sense ; even to myself!0
6:54 am
Haz1558

You're making more sense than my printer.
6:55 am
Nef

I know it's suggesting friends, mom; I'm just trying to figure out who I do and don't know from here. I know a number of people here that I see everyday and I have a lot of them friended; but if I never see anyone here, I don't necessarily want to "friend" them
6:56 am
FMitch

Haz what make and model is it?
6:57 am
Nef

Haz, my printer messes up quite often. I shut it down, then check my computer and it always seems that *somehow* my computer has unselected the right printer and plugged a different printer name or number in.
6:57 am
Haz1558

It's an HPDeskjet - it just seems to object to being turned off.
6:58 am
Nef

(I think the computer and printer are in cahoots together to frustrate me)
6:58 am
Haz1558

And yes, I've checked that the computer and the printer should be talking to each other. The computer is making overtures, the printer's playing hard to get.
6:59 am
Nef

Check and see if the model number is right. That's what our HP printer (and my current Kodak printer) change when they quit
6:59 am
Haz1558

Once I get this grid done I'll set to work.

Nef - If you happen to have Ata on facebook, she had people contribute to a wall post of hers a few weeks ago and that created a rather comprehensive list of some babblers with babble names to real names. One of the babble pages (babblers worldwide?) also has a list on the wall and in a discussion.

We have 4 computers and 3 printers here at home. (That's pretty bad, isn't it?) My Mac won't talk to the Epson printer. DH's generic PC (special-built for him) won't talk to the HP OR the Kodak printer; Dtr's HP laptop PC won't talk to either the the Epson or the Kodak; and the Toshiba laptop PC talks to everything (but is slower than molasses)

7:07 am

If a packet hits a pocket
on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted
at a very last resort,

and the access of the memory
makes your floppy disk abort.
Then the socket packet pocket
has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item
followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon
puts your window in the trash;

and your data is corrupted
cuz the index doesn't hash,
then the situation's hopeless
and your system's gonna crash.

If the label on the cable
at your house,
says the network is connected to
the button on your mouse,

but your packets want to
tunnel to another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected
by the printer down the hall,

and your screen is all distorted
by the side effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window
are as wavy as a souse;

then you may as well reboot
and go out with a bang,
cuz sure as I'm a poet,
the sucker's gonna hang !

When the copy of your floppy's
getting sloppy in the disc
and the microcode instructions
cause unnecessary risk,

then you'll have to flash the memory
and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer
and be sure to tell your Mom!

and a new thing ive learned.with most new computers they have many usb ports as this is the fasion of the day(mine has 4 in front and 4 in back) a computer is biased when it comes to sending power to all theese ports and will give a steadier more regulated power flow to the ones in the rear near the power supply

well in the auld country they were common,less so here;9
8:38 am

though, mind you, by the time you fly to ireland, stay in a hotel, go to auction, buy the stuff and pay to have it shipped back over, the "bargain" element is somewhat reduced....but you will have a story to tell!

Alas, I must get ready for work. 11-6 today. Bye all. Enjoy the day.

redturtlehead

and very very hungry!
4:15 pm
jmcnrick

thinking about listing early this grid is a bear
4:15 pm
JBV

me too, still have 100 to go
4:16 pm
JBV

do you use More Words - in my own system of rules, I use that as a first step before resorting to the list
4:16 pm
redturtlehead

I am just piddling along, I have the day off tomorro....
4:16 pm
jmcnrick

how does morewords work?
4:17 pm
JBV

well if you have Babble Expert you can click on "Resources" and it's right there, or go to www.morewords.com
4:18 pm
JBV

I enter pre*, for example, and it gives you every possible word that starts with those letters, then you search in alphabetical order
4:18 pm
jmcnrick

yes, but does it list words according to the first too letters and size? I am guessing that is what it does
4:18 pm
jmcnrick

hmm
4:18 pm
jmcnrick

I only list and ask (sometimes beg) for clues.
4:19 pm
JBV

if you know the length of the word, you can enter question marks for the missing letters, pr???, or if you don't know the length, use the asterisk pr*
4:19 pm
jmcnrick

I try not to list until 1/2 but some days I am either foggy headed or the grid is too hard
4:19 pm
redturtlehead

more words can help but I find it difficult to use without the list.
4:19 pm
jmcnrick

I use something like that for lexulous sometimes (don't tell pini or doren)
4:19 pm
JBV

yes, it's difficult, but that's why I say in my own crazy system, I feel it's a step above the list
4:20 pm
redturtlehead

When I list early I get very confused, so I prefer to wait until I have like 75% donoe.
4:20 pm
jmcnrick

see I see it the reverse but that is what makes horse races
4:21 pm
JBV

anyone have some u's? all I have is un 4/6
4:21 pm
jmcnrick

add the person letters to get un6
4:22 pm
JBV

thanks!
4:22 pm
jmcnrick

the other two are something that is singular un 6 and then the ungrammatical more un 7
4:23 pm
jmcnrick

man I am never going to find 20 v words
4:23 pm
redturtlehead

horse races??
4:24 pm

4:51 pm
jmcnrick

I like the chog more than the game
4:51 pm
jmcnrick

I should try turning the grid more often in scramble then maybe I would make better sc5s
4:52 pm
sciencegeek

what are you talking about "scramble?"
4:53 pm
jmcnrick

it is a face book game and that is actually my point about the chog
4:53 pm
sciencegeek

jmcnrick

lots of word games on the internet -- only one babble chog

7:55 pm

Is it a Mac? I see a note at the bottom of Lickety's that mentions something won't work with Mac - but can't tell if it's the whole program or just the fireworks.
7:56 pm
Dorens

i have a mac, that's why i've ever seen babble expert.. it is pc only, whole program

I should try it, but I'm so used to not having it, I'm pretty fast. Can you not use Expert if you get it and would rather not?

tc you can do almost the same thing by using the middle button on your mouse when you click on Licketys site. Then when choices pop up, click on open in a new tab.
8:00 pm
72 Temple Owl

so what does expert get you?
8:00 pm
tceicher

ah, never thought of that
8:01 pm
Bugsaw

That makes two tabs open (Babble and Lickety) but you can only see one at a time. It might help until you get the program you want
8:01 pm
tceicher

I've been using it so long, I don't know what the screen looks like without it.
8:01 pm
Dorens

wish i knew, it sounds kind of cool-- i hear you can't nake mistakes and enter words into chat
8:01 pm

I'm spoiled and would prefer not to have to do the tab thing.
