A Quonset hut is a lightweight prefabricated structure of corrugated galvanised iron having a semicircular cross section. The design was based on the Nissen hut developed by the British during World War I. The name comes from their site of first manufacture, Quonset Point, at the Davisville Naval Construction Battalion Center in Davisville (a village located within the town of North Kingstown, Rhode Island). [from Wikipedia]

hi Kazz - have a good evening
1:51 am
helensgirlkid

I had heard of Nissen huts - even suspected a relationship.
1:51 am
Kazzer99

thats what we call them as well - my grandad turned his into a garden shed and the college we used to half at work housed the snooker table in onw
1:51 am
lynxxx

There you go, that's why we called them Nissan huts then
1:51 am

2:15 am
jillibus

he was dreading today
2:15 am
rolin

why?
2:16 am

I was hoping someone here could clarify -- I think it was about his dog
2:16 am

oh ok...

so should I! Do you know what ruru was dreading?
2:20 am
flosey

no, didn't see much of him tonight at all
2:20 am
flosey

didn't realize there was a problem
2:20 am
J. C.

Sorry , Jilli - was sidetracked. Hello, flosey! :)
2:20 am
flosey

hi there jc
2:21 am
jillibus

yesterday he said he would probably not feel like babbling for a couple of days
2:21 am
J. C.

Oh no - that's highly unusual, for him - isn't it?
2:21 am
flosey

oh dear, sorry to hear that
2:22 am
westford

just got back hello JC
2:22 am
jillibus

west -- do you know what ruru was dreading today?
2:22 am
J. C.

Hello, westford . . .
2:23 am
westford

yes scrabs said earlier that he was having to put his Monty down
2:23 am
J. C.

Oh no, westford - but whY? :(
2:23 am
flosey

oh my, very sorry to hear that west
2:23 am
westford

not sure if it was happening today
2:23 am
jillibus

that's what I was afraid of -- poor ruru -- so hard to do.
2:24 am
J. C.

Is he an old dog?
2:24 am
westford

it is it's like losing a piece of your heart
2:24 am
jillibus

Last I heard it was Thursday he was dreading.
2:24 am
J. C.

Yes, it's the worst, Jilli - had to do it with my last dog, when she was 19. :(
2:24 am
westford

I think so JC he's had him a long time
2:25 am
J. C.

It sure is, westford - it's exactly like that, it IS that. :(
2:25 am
jillibus

He was very beautiful -- ruru did post a picture of him a while ago, winning at a show
2:25 am
westford

I think he is getting or just got a new puppy that will help
2:25 am
jillibus

at least I think that was Monty
2:26 am
jillibus

He's been looking forward to a new pup for a long time
2:27 am
jillibus

JC, 19 is a VERY long time to have a dog. As you may remember, my late cat was lamost 19.
2:28 am
VolleymomDee

as 8/40
2:29 am
J. C.

Oh yes? Yes it is, Jilli - she was a small dog, though.
2:29 am
J. C.

I think you will have seen her, Jilli - there were photos with her, in my pages.
2:30 am
J. C.

I was only 21 when I got her, and lost her just after my 40th birthday.
2:30 am
jillibus

While I'm at it, has anyone heard from sprite lately?
2:30 am
westford

I'm sorry JC
2:31 am
J. C.

Definitely not me, of course.
2:31 am
jillibus

Yes, JC, I remember seeing those pix and writeups -- she was a big part of your performances, wasn't she? Like Valerie now?
2:31 am
westford

she's usually on quite late but she has been keeping up with listing the themes
2:32 am
flosey

as8 - as + plural of one of the entertainment awards
2:32 am

west, she hasn't changed her icon since July 16
2:32 am
westford

thanks flosey !!
2:32 am
J. C.

Valerie isn't as such, no - not in the same way, but she does go almost everywhere with me.
2:32 am
westford

I meant she's been listing them
2:33 am
jillibus

thanks flosey -- new one to me!
2:34 am
flosey

2:34 am
jillibus

I know, west, but has the list changed recently?
2:34 am
westford

the word that describes a lot of babblers doesn't count
2:34 am
westford

she's listed until Sunday
2:37 am
jillibus

I think that list has been there since last Saturday, west. But never mind -- I just hope she's ok -- she was sick for quite a while and last I heard was just beginning to recover
2:38 am
westford

I'm trying to remember the last time I saw her on here. It was quite awhile ago
2:38 am
flosey

I haven't seen Sprite in ages
2:38 am

2:38 am

hmmm, I don't have those ones
2:41 am
westford

hormones I think
2:41 am
J. C.

Hmmm, Jilli - one of the 'es' words is a letter - the plural of it. ;)
2:42 am
jillibus

that gave them to me, west -- thanks!
2:42 am

VolleymomDee

I always miss pluras :(
2:44 am

guess so, JC -- couldn't even spell "really"
2:44 am
westford

not me usually get the plurals and forget the singulars
2:44 am
westford

that's why it's nice to have the list
2:46 am
VolleymomDee

definitely great to have list with these large grids
2:46 am
J. C.

That's OK, Jilli - I read 'typo' very well. Probably because I make many, myself . . . :P
2:46 am

I could use one now

VolleymomDee

LoriP

G'd Morning Babblers! Another decent sized grid.
3:35 am
Haz1558

Hello Lori. Yes, seems pleasant.
3:35 am
LoriP

Hey Hazaurus!
3:36 am
Haz1558

Hello there - good morning/evening all.
3:36 am
LoriP

I tried 'inniest'. I have the inniest belly buckle ever, but no luck. Stoopid Enable.
3:37 am
Haz1558

It just doesn't recognise greatness when it sees it.
3:37 am
LoriP

Alas and alack.
3:38 am
LoriP

Hopefully this grid contains actual words, not to be confused with yesterday's....
3:39 am
Haz1558

It seems to be full of words we've encountered before. Was A lass and a lack the old fashioned way of indicating a bimbo (a girl, no brains)?
3:40 am
LoriP

Quite possibly. If so, what a polite putdown, no? :p
3:40 am
Haz1558

Very, she wouldn't know that anything untoward had been indicated.
3:42 am
LoriP

Far more subtle than something like "well, I should go to bed now, so my company can go home". Different genre altogether.
3:43 am
Haz1558

Subtlety is no use if you want people to leave. Setting off the smoke alarm works wonders.
3:43 am
Haz1558

You can't carry on a conversation in the face of overwhelming noise and the possibility of getting scorched.
3:44 am
LoriP

True. Creative as well.
3:45 am
Haz1558

I would have thought manufacturers would be able to create a series of emergency measures to get rid of unwanted guests.
3:45 am
Haz1558

Powerful aromas, flickering lights, that kind of thing.
3:46 am
Haz1558

Empress Marie Theresa of Austria used to instal special short candles when she knew politicians were coming to tea. Once the candles started to go out, she could shove them out the door.
3:47 am
LoriP

They can build an International Space Station, but troublesome guests are still a problem after all this time. You'd think something electric could be invented.
3:47 am
LoriP

Now that is excellent. Nice foresigh on ehr part.
3:47 am
Haz1558

I suppose you could always suggest something fun like cleaning the oven or scrubbing the front step.
3:48 am
LoriP

*foresight, her. You get the idea...
3:48 am
Haz1558

I've admired Marie Theresa ever since. When she wanted to dance all night, the candles were so long they could hardly get them through the front door.
3:50 am
Haz1558

I don't know if the politicians ever tumbled to her little scheme, they were possibly too busy filling in their expense reports.
3:50 am
LoriP

Politicians aren't the brightest lot.
3:51 am
Haz1558

Especially when the candles are running low.
3:54 am
Haz1558

Complete change of subject, but I 'saw' Novia Scotia on TV the other day.
3:54 am
Haz1558

There's a fleet of tall ships being sailed from Novia Scotia to Belfast - Novia Scotia was fog bound, you could just about make out the shape of some of the boats. I thought of you.
3:55 am
LoriP

Good heavens. New Scotland and fog. Who knew.
3:55 am
Haz1558

Yes, they mentioned something about it not being unusual.
3:55 am
LoriP

The Tall Ships are always a highlight for me. I sit and look at them and I'm lost in time.
3:56 am
Haz1558

They're fabulous, aren't they? So graceful.
3:56 am
LoriP

The Parade of Sail was Monday (I think) in Halifax, and the ships departed for other small NS ports of call.
3:56 am
Haz1558

If we'd thought ahead, we could have got you aboard.
3:57 am
LoriP

I may borrow my neighbors camera and take some pics and send them to you.
3:57 am
Haz1558

You could have stowed away or earned your keep as a galley slave.
3:57 am
LoriP

I'd rather be a wench, than a galley slave.
3:58 am
Haz1558

I'm hoping to get a chance to go and see them. They'll be docked in Belfast for a few days and were a huge tourist attraction back in 1992. They've got all sorts of things planned for this time around.
3:59 am
Haz1558

It would be great to get to a high enough vantage point to see them sailing up Belfast Lough.
3:59 am
LoriP

Oh, do it Haz! Do not miss it. They're fabulous
4:00 am
Haz1558

I may even remember how to use binoculars!
4:00 am
LoriP

Sure, and I'll remember how to use a vacuum. C'mon now Haz....
4:01 am
LoriP

The boys were little last time they were here. They're quite excited now, as they're old enough to appreciate them.
4:01 am
Haz1558

Seriously, I had to be shown what to do by ever patient husband. Once I had mastered the complication of taking off the lens caps things slipped into place.
4:02 am
Haz1558

They'll love it then, I don't think you could fail to enjoy how magnificent they look.
4:02 am
LoriP

Once you know all the tricks, the viewing comes easily. :)
4:03 am
Haz1558

This is true. I'm not frightened by technology, no ma'am.
4:03 am
LoriP

Which reminds me, are you and your printer on speaking terms again?
4:04 am
Haz1558

Yes, indeed. We reached a rapprochement. I switched off the computer, switched it on again and would you believe, that printer swung into action.
4:05 am
Haz1558

It printed SORRY in big letters. I call that respectful.
4:05 am
Haz1558

It didn't really. Another example of lies coming easily to me. But it did print what I had been asking it to print for about an hour.
4:05 am
LoriP

Long as no grudges are held, it's good.
4:06 am
Haz1558

No, we've agreed to let bygones be bygones.
4:06 am
LoriP

A tumultuous working relationship could be bad all 'round.
4:06 am
Haz1558

And no printer or foot was harmed.
4:06 am
LoriP

Excellent. Police arriving for a domestic distubance could be embarassing.
4:07 am
Haz1558

I did brandish the instructions in front of it, showed it the CD and threatened uninstalling it. That seemed to help.
4:08 am
Haz1558

I know. It's bad enough when they arrive to search to see if I'm really keeping a dog in a cold, dank kennel. Or an international film star kidnapped under the stairs.
4:08 am
LoriP

Hostage negotiations can sometimes call for drastic measures.
4:08 am
Haz1558

Fortunately I had got a tip-off and got Spangle under the stairs and GC into the garage.
4:09 am
Haz1558

You've got to keep one step ahead of the law.
4:09 am
LoriP

Resourceful woman. I'd think the underground bunker is almost complete soon?
4:10 am
Haz1558

Yes. We decided it would be best if we didn't apply for planning permission. It's a pain having to deposit little bags of soil every time we go out anywhere.
4:10 am
Haz1558

Those films make it look easy (digging tunnels and disposing of the stuff) but it really isn't.
4:11 am
LoriP

No doubt. At least it'll be soundproof when complete.
4:11 am
Haz1558

Oh absolutely. It would be ideal for Vicuna to practise her singing.
4:12 am
LoriP

It'd be a service to the entire International Community....
4:12 am
Haz1558

I know. We're terribly benevolent as well as resourceful. I expect the Nobel Peace Prize any day now.
4:15 am
Haz1558

Everybody else has gone awfully quiet. They're either concentrating on the grid or they're on the phone to report a mad woman on the loose.
4:15 am
LoriP

Perhaps they're considering the possibility of Esprit's incessant nekkid' Babbling.
4:16 am
Haz1558

She'd be another candidate for the underground room. Vicuna could sing and Esprit could exhibit and the rest of the world could be safe.
4:18 am
LoriP

I consider Esprit o be the nekkid' Babble Ambassador.
4:19 am
Haz1558

She'll get no competition from me for that particular position.
4:19 am
hydra

Morning Haz, Lori. I shan't interrupt your chat!
4:20 am
Haz1558

Good morning hydra - interrupt away, I was getting worried that we were alone. Or not alone but being pitied!
4:20 am
LoriP

lol, time to kill, chat to fill. G'd morning hydra
4:20 am
Haz1558

How are you?
4:20 am
hydra

I had a quick look and thought the bunker was an amazing idea! I could come and be the scribe who writes it all down for history.
4:21 am
hydra

Don't ask how I am for I might tell you and then you'll be sorry!
4:21 am
Haz1558

Excellent! We need everything written down for the archives.
4:21 am
Haz1558

Ah, are you one of those people who are said to enjoy ill health?
4:21 am
hydra

That's settled then. Quill in hand.
4:23 am
Haz1558

You'll have to be very circumspect and slightly change names to avoid giving offence.
4:23 am
LoriP

We've not even inquired as to her skills for this esteemed position.

hydra

Only temporary ill-health, thank goodness. Tooth and ear infection, one on either side. On second lot of antibiotics and taking loads of live yogurt and probiotic capsules to ward off ill effects.
4:24 am
LoriP

4:24 am
Haz1558

Good point and well made, Lori. Do we need to get hydra to fill in an application form?
4:24 am
hydra

OK Lori, put me to the test! You want my biography?
4:24 am
hydra

Or rather, CV.

***Germs in an enclosed space give me pause***
4:26 am

Perhaps we should focus more on general health than skills? :p

Haz1558

(Haz to Lori - have you got a copy of the 'letting down gently' refusal letter?)
4:26 am
hydra

Oh dear. I'll stay outside and maintain a webcam link so I can continue to write.
4:27 am
Haz1558

I don't know. Someone writing a history of a place that they're too sick to enter?
4:27 am
hydra

Qualifications: 20 years as a journalist and editor, now a freelance book editor, and 40 novels published. Will that qualify me? Pretty please?
4:27 am
LoriP

lol Haz. I always think of that letter as being the same as breaking up with "let's still be friends though" type of rejection.

I don't know, hydra. What is your position on apostrophes?
4:27 am
hydra

OK then. I shall pen a scurrilous account and make my fortune. Thank you, herin!
4:28 am
hydra

Painful if you're on the pointed end, Haz.
4:28 am
LoriP

hydra does seem keen. I wonder how she feels about -----> ???? usage
4:28 am
Haz1558

And now she's holding us to ra6/21.
4:28 am
hydra

One at a time, Lori. I hate the teenage diary effect of ???!!!
4:29 am
Haz1558

I'm warming to you more and more, hydra. Your stance on !!!!!! ?
4:29 am
hydra

Yes, ransom it is. How much not to dish the dirt?
4:29 am
Haz1558

Oh, you've already said. This is looking more and more positive.
4:30 am
hydra

With skis on, Haz. Only way to stay upright on 'em!
4:30 am
LoriP

She fell for it Haz. That was disappointing. To the PB!
4:30 am
Haz1558

ra6/21 I said for a reason. So much for writing about the bunker, you'll have to do it from the PB!
4:30 am
Haz1558

Okay, next candidate for official bunker scribe?
4:30 am
LoriP

A definite tick in the negative column. :p
4:30 am
hydra

But it's not in the grid, so how have I offended? (sob)
4:31 am
Haz1558

It IS in the grid. Try it and see.
4:31 am
LoriP

***Look again hydra***
4:31 am
hydra

Sticks quill up Haz's nose and stalks off in huff.
4:31 am
Haz1558

Artistic temperament.
4:32 am
LoriP

***Waits for the glowing red cheeks of the ousted scribe***
4:32 am
hydra

Oh yikes! I'm definitely off now. I didn't even spot an r in the grid. I'm still working on left hand top corner. Oh dear. Scarlet flush!
4:32 am
LoriP

I admire the defense though, points for that. Sticking to her story no matter what!
4:32 am
Haz1558

A fine display of ar8/40, hydra.
4:33 am
LoriP

Will you be placing that quill somewhere else now?
4:33 am
Haz1558

I know, but do you trust a scribe who can't see an r?
4:33 am
hydra

Yep. I bow my head in shame. Mea culpa (no p's in grid.)
4:33 am
hydra

Give her new glasses, Haz!
4:33 am
hydra

Or a rear view mirror for the r's
4:34 am
Haz1558

This is going to cost money - the appointment of a scribe, I mean. Webcams, glasses, new quills daily.
4:34 am
LoriP

hydra, a good scribe cannot function on a 25 letter alphabet.
4:34 am
Haz1558

I'll have to look up and see if the budget can stick this.
4:34 am
hydra

OK, ok, I'll scrub the floor and wash the dishes. Now can I come in?
4:34 am
Haz1558

Oh, and alphabet chart, I forgot that.
4:35 am
LoriP

***It's difficult to enter grid words when you've been laughing this hard for an hour***
4:35 am
Haz1558

We'll maybe take you on as a trial period, but if Jacula applies for the position as well, you're going to have stiff competition.
4:35 am
hydra

All this has been a big st6/18 on me. I'm off to make coffee. Anyone like on?
4:36 am
hydra

I mean 'one'? Don't wanna be mocked for my poor proof reading, too!
4:36 am
Haz1558

Yes, stick on the coffee, a break will do us all good.
4:36 am
LoriP

Coffee? Yes please.
4:36 am
hydra

With milk? Any sugar? Ginger biccy for dunking?
4:37 am
LoriP

Black coffee for me please.
4:37 am
Haz1558

You're being too good to us, hydra. Don't think we don't know you're trying to butter us up.
4:37 am
hydra

*Damn. They guessed*
4:37 am
Haz1558

I'll have latte with a slice of chocolate gateau, and look lively about it.
4:38 am
hydra

Herin, are you still here? I suppose you'd like coffee too. Chocolate gateau? Think of your waist, Haz. *Thinks: time to get bitchy*
4:39 am
Haz1558

(Haz to Lori - she's coming out in her true colours now)
4:39 am
LoriP

Snarking will get you nowhere hydra, and sarcasm? We don't even know the meaning of that.
4:39 am
Haz1558

Sarcasm? We're strangers to it.
4:39 am
hydra

Better slip away before I cause any more trouble. Now, where did I put my broomstick?
4:39 am
LoriP

***She's feisty though, that counts for something***
4:40 am
hydra

Just a small touch of irony will do
4:40 am
Haz1558

It does.
4:40 am
Haz1558

Irony? You'll get Lori worried in case she thinks you want her to dewrinkle her clothes.
4:41 am
hydra

Nice one, Haz. tres droll
4:41 am
Haz1558

She has NO idea about irony, nor ironing.
4:41 am
LoriP

No need to press me on the issue Haz. I will never get it. Ever.
4:42 am
Haz1558

Which is why she'd fit in so well to being a wench on a tall ship. No room to swing an ironing board.
4:42 am
hydra

This topic is going round in ever decreasing circles.
4:42 am
Haz1558

Anybody else having deja vu?
4:42 am
Haz1558

Anybody else hearing Sonny and Cher?
4:42 am
hydra

Wench on tall ship? Yes please! All those hunky sailors. NOW I'm showing my true colours!
4:43 am
hydra

No, I'm hearing Flanders and Swann, Haz
4:43 am
LoriP

I'm having a Yellowbeard moment or three.
4:44 am
Haz1558

I'm hearing Sonny and Cher from that Groundhog day film. I do remember Flanders and Swann though, one in a wheelchair?
4:45 am
hydra

Lefthanded honeysuckle and righthanded bindweed?
4:45 am
hydra

I'm a gnu.
4:45 am
hydra

Think I've finally flipped!
4:45 am
Haz1558

Mad dogs and Englishmen.
4:46 am
hydra

That's it! And Tom Lehrer. We'll all go together when we go, and Poisoning Pigeons in the park.
4:46 am
Haz1558

It's okay, hydra, we're used to people saying the strangest things. It does put a big ? over your bunker correspondent suitability.
4:46 am
hydra

OK. I'm off to construct my own and you can't come in, so there! *STOMPS FOOT*
4:47 am
LoriP

Oh my.
4:47 am
Haz1558

(Haz to Lori - definite attitude issues)
4:47 am
hydra

It's just a tiny foot, honestly!
4:47 am
Haz1558

Does not respond well to challenge.
4:48 am
hydra

Does. Humph.
4:48 am
Haz1558

Haz to hydra - thank you for your enquiry about this position. We will keep your application on file (in the bin) and will contact you if we require your assistance (don't hold your breath).

4:50 am
Haz1558

(Haz to Lori - good thinking, she may be more disapointed than we realise)
4:50 am
Haz1558

disappointed - as I am with my spelling...
4:50 am
hydra

Big bottle of wine would help!
4:51 am
Haz1558

You're still on your meds, dear.
4:51 am
hydra

Yes, you need a professional scribe, Haz. Hah!
4:51 am
LoriP

That's a good girl. Drown your sorrows, and conjure up ways to make yourself totally unemployable.
4:51 am
LoriP

Perhaps some tattoos or piercings.
4:52 am
hydra

Really am off now. Work to do. Bunker mentality? Who needs it? *poof*
4:52 am
Haz1558

Bye hydra!
4:52 am

Hang on... (unpoofs self briefly) ... always fancied a tattoo of Pegasus. *poofs again*
4:53 am
Haz1558

I'm going to take a quick break as well. Housework to do (sorry Lori), laundry to do, dog to walk, the excitement never ends around here.

Laters Haz. I shall dive in this grid.

Why did JK agree to this version? Or was she not involved in the movie production?
7:29 am
Wolvie

what gets me is stuff that is so central to how the series plays out gets changed or just flat removed. Happens too much
7:29 am
Trifioso

not sure. of course, they may have filmed all sorts of stuff, and had to edit it down, and it will be in the deleted scenes stuff on the DVD. personally, I would have happily sat for the extra 15 minutes the funeral would have taken, and I would have LOVED the battle at hogwarts scene
7:30 am
Trifioso

and hey - did bellatrix burn down the burrows in the HBP? I don't remember that, but it has been ages since I read it....
7:31 am
Wolvie

i don't remember if that was hbp or not either
7:31 am
movieman

the trouble is, trif, if they included all the important stuff as well, the movie would have been close to 3 hours long (if not more)
7:31 am
Wolvie

that's why you have more than one part, as they are doing for the last book
7:32 am
Trifioso

yes, and we would have happily watched every second, movieman! I suppose they have to factor in other things, such as if the movie is 3 hours long, you can't run it as many times in one day, and thus not make as much money. The movie business is just that, in the end. a business

I think my favorite Alan Rickman role was in Dogma when he played the angel Gabriel... hysterical.

Hi all.... sorry, have been lurking this A.M.

I am feeling a bit under the weather today... so I have to keep getting up!

Sometimes I lurk too
7:44 am
Trifioso

I vote for the sherriff of nottingham, mom2
7:44 am
mom2han8

Also, sometimes I just have nothing to add, LOL.
7:45 am
mom2han8

Yeah... but it is a villain role again... in Dogma he is not a villain... just a confused angel, LOL.
7:45 am
mom2han8

I generally like him, period, in anything.
7:46 am

Also i just love Dogma. If you have not seen it... I recommend it.
7:46 am
Trifioso

oh, galaxy quest, that was a movie that surprised me in every way. I thought it was going to be so stupid, and I LOVED it.
7:46 am
hurshy

sense & sensibility, total non-villain role, great delicate performance
7:46 am
mom2han8

I have only seen that one in bits and pieces... but my husband and daughter love it.
7:47 am
mom2han8

Oh, I forgot about him in Sense & Sensibility... yes. He was good in that one.
7:47 am
mom2han8

He is talented.
7:47 am
mom2han8

Also, Gary Oldman is one of those actors who is good in everything.
7:47 am
Wolvie

ae 4/4 with an ending that might make you one.
7:48 am
hurshy

who's he again? older guy with short curly hair?
7:48 am
mom2han8

And Oldman always looks different... it took me 1/2 the Batman movie to realize it was him playing Harvey Dent, LOL.
7:48 am
Trifioso

I agree, mom, but he, to me, is just way creepy. Colin Firth, on the other hand, could be filmed reading a phone book and I would happily pay to attend.
7:48 am
mom2han8

Hursh... he would be difficult to describe, as I said he looks different in everything... he played Sirius Black in Harry Potter.
7:48 am
hurshy

ohhh, ok
7:48 am
mom2han8

LOL... Colin Firth... love him.
7:49 am
hurshy

that's what i think about johnny depp, looks different in everything - i'm sure i could have a whole conversation with him and never realize who i was talking to
7:49 am

Hi hurshy

7:52 am
lynxxx

of course Hursh - but now he should be painted by someone
7:53 am
mom2han8

That role kind of set him up for those villain roles he is famous for... so we were discussing how good he is as a non-villain.
7:53 am
Scrabbler

I passed halfway and have NBT. Bye for now. My friend is checking out the water level in the local creek. With our abundant ra** yesterday and overnight we might be able to kayak there.

Jillibus is a wonderful lady who always changes the icons with a big writeup of what she chose and she went off the other night about how only a few people take the time to do the icons when it only takes 5 minutes and it it is supposed to be cooperative game etc. I liked my icon but she shamed me into it.

gmta, jbv, and baby is fine but I haven't seen him in three weeks, working on plans to run up there one day next week. This guidance curriculum is kicking my butt
3:43 pm

hope you see him soon, dorens - summer work is no fun - I'm taking fridays and mondays off, nice long weekends, but those 3 days are quite intense to get everything done at the office

do you have guidance counselors teaching that as a course?
3:48 pm
Dorens

problem is, there are all these state mandates and objectives and goals, but no books or material put together, so i'm searching the net, my library, and my feeble brain to come up with activities
3:49 pm
Dorens

no, and we have no time in the schedule for it, so Im curious to see when and how it is implemented. we did put a careers piece in the 8th graders during library, and I suppose we'll beef that up
3:50 pm
JBV

did you ever wonder why the state does not come up with a "model" curriculum instead of having 600 districts going crazy each doing the same thing?
3:50 pm
Dorens

books and materials do exist, but I don't have them at my fingertips, like when you write curriculum for a course that has a textbook... so it is like slogging through mud
3:50 pm
Kazzer99

i have had a little spurt and i am down to 61
3:50 pm

3:50 pm

Now I don't even know how we do it in my district - I know technology skills are supposed to be integrated in all content areas, not sure about career ed
3:50 pm
Dorens

oh yes, absolutely, and yesterday thought about getting together with counselors from other small districts and saying, I'll do this part, you do that part and we will share
3:51 pm
Dorens

go kazz
3:51 pm
JBV

someone should sponsor that effort, dorens, like your state guidance counselors association
3:52 pm
Dorens

i tried to work at home today, but finished the grid instead
3:52 pm
JBV

much better use of time, I'd say
3:52 pm
Dorens

i think i will ask, but it will be too late for this round... this one needs to be done this summer, apparently

4:36 pm
Scrabbler

I have se4 = homonym for opp of buys
4:37 pm
Scrabbler

Owl, do you mean the B12 level is normal because of supplementation?
4:38 pm
72 Temple Owl

i mean blood work does not appear to show anything
4:38 pm
72 Temple Owl

ty for se. pass the fish. at least it's friday.
4:38 pm

Hummingbird is nearby, in garden!!
4:39 pm

Then the B12 deficiency has been corrected, I guess.
4:39 pm

4:39 pm

Then it came closer, to the hummingbird feeder near me
4:40 pm

Many of my flowers are blooming and those attract the hummers
4:40 pm

no scrabs, it has not. poor diet?
4:40 pm

we do not get hummingbirds here :-(
4:41 pm
k21eyes

hi folks
4:41 pm

I don't understand then, Owl. If the serum B12 level is normal then one is not deficient.
4:41 pm
Scrabbler

Hi k21
4:41 pm
Soodlebum

Are they tiny, scrabs? the only thing I know about hummingbirds is that they fly backwards..... too many quizzes I guess!
4:41 pm

Hello K21
4:42 pm

We gert lots of hummingbirds here
4:42 pm

Very tiny, and fast, and you know they are around because you hear them first---humming!
4:42 pm

4:42 pm
Soodlebum

Always an old reliable in table quizzes - 'what bird flies backwards'?
4:42 pm
72 Temple Owl

sorry scrabs. deficiency exists. all blood work normal except b12 level is low
4:42 pm
Scrabbler

They hover, Soodle--several weeks ago, when doing gardening, I was wearing a red bandanna (they like red), one was hovering right in front of my face--very cool!
4:43 pm
Scrabbler

So that is usually a result of poor absorption--read about pernicious anemia.
4:43 pm
zoozzoom

they also have long beaks to get to the nectar.
4:43 pm
72 Temple Owl

that was mentioned. is it bad?
4:44 pm
Scrabbler

Nope, fairly common as one ages--if I recall (we don't see this in pediatrics much at all) one looses the ability to absorb B12 because of deficiency in production of something else.
4:45 pm
Scrabbler

treatment = injections of B12
4:46 pm
Scrabbler

Missing item = "intrinsic factor", Owl.
4:47 pm
72 Temple Owl

wondering if being mediterranean has any relevance
4:50 pm
Kazzer99

i had to have b12 injections years ago - caused by bad diet they think

BabbleRabble

John Sweney was reading a Robert B Parker novel, Bad Business. The narrator refers to “a slightly overweight currently blond woman in a dark blue suit named Edith.” He wondered what she named her other suits.
9:01 pm

did car get her fireworks?

yes

Jacula

Hi all. Has anyone seen Ata's 'dear deer' pics on Facebook?
9:09 pm
Jacula

She might well have them on here on Flickr, too.
9:10 pm
Trifioso

yes jacula! wasn't that wonderful, they way she rescued that fawn!!!
9:10 pm
Trifioso

the way, I mean!
9:11 pm
BabbleRabble

what I find somewhat ironic is the term, "misplaced modifier." I generally can find mine, even if in the wrong place in the sentence.
9:11 pm
Jacula

Trif - have you seen the state of her inner thighs since? Bruised and cut!
9:11 pm
Trifioso

I don't like the term "lost a baby" - as if the mother put it down somewhere....always hated that one.
9:12 pm
Trifioso

hmmm, no jacula, haven't seen those! ouch!
9:12 pm
Jacula

Must remember to tell her to put a towel or jacket over the eyes of the creature to be rescued next time. It calms and stills them.
9:12 pm
Jacula

I'd have told her to 'hobble' te creature (tie 3 of its legs together) but fawns can die very easily from shock and stress, so not a goot idea.
9:13 pm
Jacula

Trif - very ouch!
9:13 pm
Trifioso

poor ata. you try to do a good thing, and you end up all bruised. I agree about the blindfold, that would have helped a lot
9:15 pm
Trifioso

it's so against the way they always portray fawns as these gentle, little wobbly things. I guess this proves that any animal will fight and thrash when it feels threatened.
9:15 pm
BabbleRabble

sometimes, euphemisms are worse than being straight forward
9:15 pm
Jacula

I've found, with most animals (except cats) that getting them not quite on their backs, but kind of sitting up, covering their eyes helps. You can also, in many cases, especially rabbits, hypnotise them by gently stroking their bellies. Again, not of that works with cats. LOL
9:16 pm
Trifioso

BR, a friend of mine was fighting with her husband, and he snapped "will you stop throwing epitaphs at me!" She dissolved in4 such laughs that the whole fight stopped right there. :)
9:16 pm
Jacula

*no4 of that works, I meant.
9:17 pm
Jacula

epitaphs? PSML. 'Here lies my wife without bed or blankit, Dead as a doornail, God be thankit!' That sort of thing?
9:17 pm
BabbleRabble

at least he did not have to dodge a tombstone
9:17 pm
Trifioso

psml?
9:18 pm
Trifioso

he meant "epithets"
9:18 pm
BabbleRabble

i know
9:18 pm
Jacula

Becoming incontinent on the bladder front laughing, Trif. (Putting it politely for what pmsl means.)
9:19 pm
Jacula

I know, too, Trif.
9:19 pm
Trifioso

ms? is that my self? that's one word, isn't it?
9:20 pm
Jacula

Trif - it's the net way of saying it, don't get too pedantic. LOL
9:20 pm
Trifioso

thank you jacula. never heard that before. oh, hey, did we talk about john barrowman the other night? can't remember....he was in a documentary that I was watching
9:21 pm
Jacula

It stems from American shorthand, which I learned in preference to Pitman's when I couldn't do Gregg.
9:22 pm
Jacula

Not us, Trif. But there are many 'Oh what a waste'' female fans of his out there, on Babble in in the wider world.
9:23 pm
Jacula

*and in the wider world.
9:24 pm
Jacula

Has everyone present finished the grid?
9:24 pm
Trifioso

he came off very well on the program. very quick on his feet, and a good extemporaneous speaker.
9:24 pm
Trifioso

i haven't jac, and I am finding it quite the slog
9:25 pm
Jacula

He's cute but not one I 'fancy', Trif.
9:25 pm
Jacula

I can clue, if you wish, Trif.
9:26 pm
Trifioso

thank you, jacula. at the mo I am scarlet to admit I am stuck on a 4. monkeeeez? monkeeeeez?
9:26 pm
Jacula

BR - how true the poem in your bio is.
9:27 pm
Jacula

archaic way , or maybe Greek way, of spelling a very long time (one billion years).
9:27 pm
BabbleRabble

I thought so too. <{:+))
9:27 pm
Jacula

Look to your first e4 for a clue.
9:29 pm
Jacula

Or did you mean, Trif, tht you are stuck on an a4 word?
9:30 pm
Trifioso

stuck on an an word, but I got it! onward I go
9:30 pm
Jacula

BR - do I mean Greek or Latin for that ae4? I was rubbish at classics at school.
9:31 pm
Jacula

Having said that, I'd probably be top of the class in a modern school.:/
9:33 pm
Trifioso

ugh, getting the dreaded red bars
9:33 pm
BabbleRabble

you are way ahead of me, Jac .. says of Greek origin. I always must look.
9:34 pm
Jacula

Site seems to be working fine here, Trif.
9:34 pm
Trifioso

oooh, pride and prejudice is on. WIN
9:36 pm
lbdawger

got sidetracked, and now ready to go read my book. see you all tomorrow!
9:36 pm
Trifioso

goodnight lbd
9:37 pm
Jacula

BR - like me, you need to know. If I'd attended the local Comp (mixed ability school) rather than the elite Grammar school I went to, I wouldn't aim so high. I'd have always been top and never had to strive. It's much more edifying, challenging and sometimes elating to beat those who have same, similar abilities. And it's extremely satisfying to outsmart those who are smarter.
9:37 pm
Jacula

lbd - Hi and 'bye and enjoy your book, then sleep well. x

BabbleRabble

as one whose livelihood for many years depended on being able to communicate well, I still am struck by how often I fail to get the job done.
9:43 pm
Jacula

BR - the job of communicating well gets harder and harder as the Me,Myself, I! culture continiues to make pace. Do you want to go to another level to communicate? That's up to you.
9:43 pm

9:55 pm
Jacula

Make yourself a mug of warm milk, drink it slowly in a low light in bed and try to drift back off again. At the very least, switch the computer off.
9:58 pm
Jacula

In fact, the less electrical equipment you have in your bedroom, the better you will sleep. My sleep pattern's gone haywire since Beloved introduced a TV/DVD/video, electric alarm clock cum cd player, electric fan etc to the room. I have a battery alarm clock and any lights in the room that have plugs are switched off at the mains.
9:58 pm
Jacula

All of that stuff creates a field of electricity.

Smokers' talk - dragging likemad on the filter of a low-tar one right now and getting nothing. Reluctant to open my new pack of Black Devil my daughter brought me back from Cyprus because I had to make the one pack she brought me back from Russia last year last 12 months.

6 line poem, Shir. Se + consonant + girl's name.
