well imho the ho9 is a silly word

Oh, 'only halfway', he says . . .
1:31 am

1:31 am

Much better than me, at only 90 words! :/ Then again, I've been away from the computer, busy with the better half, for the last little while . . .

Just1Mar

no it's veggies marinated ...
1:33 am
dcseain

English took ante and anti, as did Spanish. I think Italian may only have anti
1:34 am
jillibus

so should't it be ante, not anti?
1:34 am
dcseain

of course not, kate. Gov't, do recall ;)
1:34 am
jillibus

Oh, I C, dc
1:34 am
TraderKate

....oh well, the weather's nice...enjoy for a while!
1:34 am
Just1Mar

to my knowledge it's of Italian origins...or at least made popular by them hence antipasto(i)
1:35 am
dcseain

generally in English anti - against, ante- before.
1:35 am
jillibus

ty dc
1:35 am

Word Origin & History

antipasto

1934, from It., from anti- "before" (see ante) + pasto "food." Earlier Anglicized as antepast (1590).

1:39 am
Just1Mar

yw dc :)
1:39 am
jillibus

yes, mar, and it comes before the pasta course, so thinking in English (Latin derived) I wondered if it should be ante (before) pasto(i) rather than anti (against) pasto(i)

I met a cute black spaniel the other day but seemed a little small. How much does Hobbit weigh Ata?
3:05 am
Atalante

she's a lump - she weighs about 18kg. but cockers are very stocky compared to other spaniels
3:07 am
lynxxx

this must have been an 'other' one _ I would have guessed only 10 kg
3:08 am
Atalante

probably either a young cocker or a decent sized king charles
3:08 am
sprite

that is about what terra will weigh when he is full grown, lyn
3:09 am
sprite

terra is 8 kg now, he is slim but a real male kcc, very muscled and all.
3:09 am
Atalante

"normal" cockers rather than "working" cockers are a bit less lump-like
3:09 am
lynxxx

Not a King Charles, a fine/slim head on this one. maybe just young one
3:10 am
sprite

terra has a fine head as well. Some breeders try to get back the nose, so to speak, because the too short one gives problems with smelling and with the eyes
3:10 am

have you always had spaniels haz?
3:12 am
Haz1558

No, our first dog was a dalmatian, affectionately known as our bimbo dog, since she was very pretty but dim. Spangle is pretty and much brighter up top.
3:13 am
Atalante

Hobbit is my first spaniel too (well, we had her brother for a year as well). BUt I dont' think I'd want anything but a spaniel now, given the choice
3:13 am

in dutch we call those 'rice 'n' currants'' dogs.
3:14 am
Atalante

how fab!
3:14 am
Haz1558

We probably wouldn't have chosen a dalmatian, but she was a gift from friends. She was very affectionate, but shed hair like you wouldn't believe.
3:14 am
lynxxx

Spaniels do seem to have very loving natures..and always enthusiastic
3:15 am
Atalante

except when kept in kennels :P
3:15 am

Shedding hairs - oh yes I would! pity I tend to wear a lot of black
3:15 am

I'd agree, lynxxx, very endearing to live with.
3:15 am
Atalante

they are just such joyful dogs. they make you smile
3:15 am

when we were thinking about which breed to choose, Ata told me to go for a spaniel: loving, 'real doglike' dogs, playful, sweetnatured and smart.

lollll about them all, Haz. Very smart and funny.
3:21 am
Haz1558

I'm glad you like them, sprite, some were suggestions from babblers themselves.
3:21 am
Andree

wh would abandon a spaniel, my last 2 dogs were spaniels and a springer
3:22 am
sprite

very well found
3:22 am
Atalante

I couldn't abandon a spaniel. Couldn't bear the *eyes*
3:22 am
Andree

i sent off the application and hope they don't notice i did not answer the" do you rent and have you permission fron your landlord" question
3:22 am
Andree

me either ata
3:22 am
sprite

true Andree. The lady dog trainer we go to even told us to NOT put terra's name on his address label. She said spaniels are often kept when found. Because they are so cute.
3:23 am
Andree

lots of dogs are cute but spaniels are such loving dogs
3:24 am
Atalante

I think that's sensible for all dogs
3:24 am
Haz1558

The eyes and the paw on the leg, or the head plonked on the lap with the eyes gazing at you - lethal combination.
3:25 am
sprite

and she also said a colleague of hers writes on the label that the dog needs daily medication. It is going a bit far, I think, but I can see the reason.
3:25 am
sprite

oh yes Haz. To say no then... really tough.
3:25 am
Andree

i am not normally a lawbreaker [ other than driving and thats another story] but as we have been asked to sign another lease for another year i am getting a dog
3:25 am
Atalante

very sensible, andree
3:25 am
Haz1558

You'd be stretching things a bit if you declared that the dog turned into a were-wolf on the stroke of midnight, but I get the logic of her argument.
3:26 am
sprite

hm, now that sounds good to me, actually
3:26 am
Haz1558

We'll back you up, Andree. Say you need the dog for medical reasons.
3:26 am
Andree

hope we don't get kicked out, my daughter would kill me although she is encouraging me to do this
3:27 am
sprite

your psychiatrist told you it was either take a dog or start learning to drum.
3:27 am
Andree

i do haz, i am no a walker unless i have a reason and so this will be good for my health
3:28 am
Andree

lol sprite
3:28 am
Haz1558

Dogs make you walk, lower your blood pressure (except when they develop selective deafness) and give you pleasure in life.
3:29 am
Andree

so true haz and the last 6 years since i was divorced i have never missed having a husband but i have missed a dog so much
3:29 am
sprite

you mean the part where I was calling my throat hoarse for Terra and stamping my feet for about 20 minutes when he refused to come might have been not good for my health?
3:30 am
Haz1558

Stamping your feet - good for the circulation, you just didn't appreciate it at the time.
3:30 am
sprite

ah, thanks for putting it back into perspective
3:30 am
Atalante

only 20 mins? pah!
3:30 am
lynxxx

that sounds like a good game Sprite, Terra thought so too obviously
3:31 am
Haz1558

No problem.
3:31 am
sprite

normal dog puberty, the trainer claims. Good thing it lasts less long than with children.
3:32 am
Haz1558

Coming back to you after only 20 minutes when there are smells to be discovered - that puts Terra into champion obedience ranking (spaniel style)
3:32 am
Atalante

hiding from Mom is a *great* game, especially when she makes noise and stuff!
3:32 am
sprite

oops! Too much perspective now, really! :)
3:33 am
sprite

I did try stepping away and ignoring him (can't walk far of course, alas) but terra was much better at that game.
3:33 am
Atalante

they are clever little brats
3:34 am
sprite

and when he finally came, he wagged his little tail and smiled (yes spaniels do smile) and was totally enthusiastic. And he did come. So what does one do then?
3:34 am
Atalante

not a lot at that point, you have to praise the coming back
3:35 am
sprite

I did. Through gritted teeth!
3:35 am
Haz1558

You fall upon him with gratitude and fondly imagine that he knew all along that it was just a fun game.
3:35 am
sprite

hahaha Haz, too true
3:37 am
Haz1558

Andree, when might you expect to get a dog?
3:37 am
sprite

my love made us a storage box for old paper. Terra is the one most pleased, he can reach it and tear up the whole content.
3:38 am
Atalante

of course! what fun!
3:38 am
Haz1558

Young dogs make shredding machines redundant for a while.
3:39 am
sprite

hubby isn't yet ready to acknowledge the box isn't at the right heigth.
3:39 am
Atalante

ditto cats
3:39 am
sprite

does it pass, Haz?
3:39 am
lynxxx

ditto 4yo greyhounds
3:39 am
sprite

height*
3:39 am
Haz1558

Mostly it does, sprite, although tissues are irrestible for ever, it seems. Spangle can't leave them undisturbed in the waste paper bins.
3:40 am
sprite

that is sweet, lyn
3:40 am
Haz1558

She can leave magazines, newspapers etc but tissues or chocolate wrappers have to be given the treatment.
3:40 am
Andree

i hope they answer soon, can't get one next week as we have a dog visitor for a week[ex son in law is going to japan and we mind max when he goes away, a lovely very well behaved border collie which the kids have known since they were born
3:41 am
sprite

oh they are Terra's favorite too. And it is the cutest thing to see, him keeping the tissue between his paws and shredding it into tiny pieces.
3:41 am
Haz1558

Border collies are the Einsteins of the canine world.
3:41 am
Haz1558

I don't know what it is about tissues, I really don't, but you're right, they shred and shred and shred.
3:41 am
sprite

exciting, Andree.
Border collies are very smart, I believe, and must be kept interested or they get to mischief?
3:42 am
Andree

they are but need way too much excercise
3:43 am
Haz1558

I suppose the neighbours would object to day and night sheep trials.
3:43 am
Andree

i am hoping for a low shedding small dog
3:43 am
Haz1558

You're not thinking in terms of a Mexican hairless, though?
3:44 am
lynxxx

Andree - There is a Cocker Spaniel Society in NSW which handles Rescues - Google it. Also King Charles & English Springer Clubs that do same
3:44 am
Haz1558

There's non-shedding and then there's a freak show.
3:44 am
Andree

will let you all know when i hear from dog rescue
3:44 am
Andree

thx lynxxx will try that
3:44 am
sprite

so far Terra has been shedding relatively much, but that is puppy hair. They say it won't be bad when he has his adult coat
3:45 am
sprite

not cuddly at all, a naked dog, Haz
3:45 am
Haz1558

I know, just not what I look for in a dog at all.
3:46 am
sprite

to me they are a bit reptile like. No insult intended.
3:46 am
Andree

i never felt if kept brushed and trimmed for the summer that spaniels shed much, this border colie leaves hair everywhere
3:47 am
lynxxx

Poodles don't shed but maintenance is a bit costly
3:47 am
Haz1558

We tend to have Spangle trimmed fairly regularly and really there isn't a big problem with shedding at all. Short-haired breeds sometimes seem to cast continually.
3:47 am
Andree

i want a fluffy coat just low shedding
3:47 am
sprite

I learned here that poodles are the nr 1 on list of smartest dogs
3:48 am
Haz1558

They are supposed to be very smart. They seem to have fallen out of favour over here, not many poodles about.
3:48 am
sprite

same here, don't see many of them
3:49 am
Andree

i must admit i didn't see any poodles on the website either
3:49 am
Haz1558

So where have all the poodles gone?
3:50 am
Atalante

too much work!
3:50 am
sprite

the vet told us that when a breed is out of fashion for a while, it may be a good time to buy them. Far less overbreeding then. But I think choosing a good breeder works as well.
3:50 am
lynxxx

Breed most popular in Melbourne now is a Labradoodle...they are everywhere. Expensive though
3:50 am
sprite

lol ata, indeed
3:51 am
sprite

must be off, thanks for the good company all. And the laughs, Haz.
3:51 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, sprite - have a good day!
3:51 am
lynxxx

Bye Sprite, have a good day
3:51 am
Haz1558

And keep that canine thug in order, won't you?
3:52 am

that bad, bad dog. I will!
3:52 am
Haz1558

Bye sprite!
3:53 am
Atalante

bye spritey!
4:04 am
Andree

i just tried another website and after a quetioaire ite seems the dog for me is a cavanese... never hear of them
4:04 am
Haz1558

Not have I, Andree.
4:04 am
Andree

cross between cavalier spaniel and a havanese
4:04 am
Andree

never heard of a havanese either
4:05 am
Haz1558

I was about to ask if it was a cross between a cavalier and a peke.
4:05 am
Atalante

heard of them, but couldn't tell you what they look like
4:05 am
lynxxx

havenese look very cute
4:06 am
Andree

the picture is sooo cute
4:06 am
Haz1558

I've looked up two dog breed books that don't feature them. Could a havanese be a cross between a 'have a guess' and a pekinese'?
4:07 am
Atalante

sounds about right
4:07 am
Andree

see 4.04 haz
4:07 am
Andree

i am not a peke person
4:07 am
lynxxx

Havanese is in Wiki
4:08 am
Haz1558

I'm going to google.
4:09 am
Haz1558

They seem to be related to the Bicon family. They do look cute, but there'll be brushing.
4:10 am
Atalante

definitely bichon-esque
4:10 am
Haz1558

It's a sturdy toy dog, so that's good and if there's cavalier in the mix, you'll have a good temperament.
4:11 am
Atalante

and looks like a proper dog, just small
4:11 am
Haz1558

You've got the seal of approval from the Brits. You may proceed, Andree!
4:14 am
Atalante

I bet she's glad about that :P
4:14 am
Atalante

how's La Glitterata today?
4:14 am
Andree

thats what the questionaire said , unlikely i will find one at a pet rescue though, might look up breeders
4:15 am
Haz1558

She seems to be fine, paws arranged, relaxing along the bottom of the sofa.
4:15 am
Atalante

awwwwww :)
4:16 am
Haz1558

Well, hopefully you'll find exactly the right dog, Andree, and you'll enjoy the fun of having a companion for your walks.
4:17 am
Andree

i hope so, now i had better get into this grid only 1/2 way

does cross-stitch count in the remit of the dreaded sewing, haz?
4:22 am
Haz1558

Absolutely. It involves threading a needle, therefore....
4:22 am
Atalante

I'm sewing all day today then :)
4:23 am
Atalante

and doing tiny little quarter stitches and stuff
4:23 am
Haz1558

I admire your dedication. I sometimes approach a sewing project (like repairing a hem) with a degree of optimism, but within 10 seconds I remember why I hate the whole process so much.
4:24 am
Atalante

I loathe proper sewing, but somehow x-stitch is ok
4:25 am
Haz1558

My sister-in-law is fond of cross-stitch, but with sight in only one eye and limited time, it takes her ages to finish anything. Her millennium project is still ongoing, I think.
4:26 am
Atalante

one eye cant help
4:26 am
Andree

i love x-stitch, used to be addicted
4:26 am
Haz1558

No - she manages fine most of the time, but too much concentrated work causes her problems.
4:27 am
Atalante

me too, until I hurt my back. most people hurt their backs liting stuff, I hurt it doing x-stitch

when you end a relationship and the other party asks that you still be friends, and the relationship ended with no animosity, unless you count a venting email from him, is it ok to be friends?
5:38 am

Hello Ata - I'm just heading off to do some more family research. The whole 1911 census for Ireland has now been put online, so yesterday I caught up with what the Armagh relatives had been up to. One family had 15 children - the last when the wife was 49. I felt weak at the thought.
9:38 am

10:09 am
DR1965

I am not that much behind you Kate and often wonder if I had a stroke or something because I say things backwards or as many people here point out- have major typos when I know how to spell
10:10 am

things backwards: sgniht
10:11 am
DR1965

hugs BR - thanks
10:11 am
flosey

I typed all my life DR and find myself making typos all the time now - have a couple of wonky fingers, sometimes get extra letters in words
10:11 am
BabbleRabble

why thank you, DR
10:11 am
flosey

and what is more maddening, forget how to spell
10:12 am
TraderKate

that's hard wired into yur brain though...spatial perception mapping in your brain...nothing wrong with that at all...unless you used to be a great accurate typist
10:12 am
flosey

Hi BR, good to see you

yes Kate, I was
10:12 am

10:13 am
DR1965

I have never been a great typist but Babble tends to bring my typonese to a new level.
10:13 am
TraderKate

i'm noticing that too, flo...used to be so good. now? i have to stop and think about it a lot...i guess it really is a case of "use it or lose it"...don't like losing it
10:14 am

10:17 am
TraderKate

dr have noticed my typing has improved since starting babble...but i'm often tired , then i revert to one or two fingers and let the little typos slide...too slow to be perfect, i'd never be able to 'talk'

But in the middle, rather than at the end.

I forgot to brag that I got the po9 by myself, while we were all smuggifying.
11:02 am
Vicuna

Bye, FM! Don't forget to breathe every once in a while.
11:02 am
Haz1558

You'll enjoy it, FM. Not as much as chatting with us, but you can't have everything.
11:03 am
Atalante

yay Vi!!
11:03 am
Haz1558

I'm impressed, Vi. You have cause for smugness.
11:03 am
Atalante

oooo i havent got that yet
11:03 am
Vicuna

I guess we'd better work up some really scintillating chat, just so she misses something good.
11:04 am
Haz1558

Check out the scintillating chat topics section to see what we can talk about.
11:04 am
Atalante

good point. what shall we scintillate about?
11:04 am
FMitch

well i can always stay an chat but can't think of anything intelligent to say right now.
11:04 am
Vicuna

Hurshy was being one earlier! *wicked grin*
11:04 am
FMitch

LOL
11:04 am
Vicuna

(A po9, I mean.)
11:05 am
Vicuna

Scintillating, scintillating... hmmm...
11:05 am
Haz1558

You just need to nod and look grave and in agreement with all that we say, FM.
11:05 am
Atalante

how intriguing!
11:05 am
Haz1558

How about po9 - a little sample of Edgar Allen?
11:06 am
FMitch

I would rather be silent than witter on about nothing.
LOL OK Haz - I'll give that a try (god knows what the emoticons would look like for hat)!
11:06 am
FMitch

*that even
11:06 am
Atalante

I know the start, working on the end bit
11:06 am
Haz1558

Gosh, FM, you don't sound like an ideal candidate for twitter.
11:06 am
Vicuna

So wait, FM... are you saying there's a problem with wittering on about nothing?!? No what'll I do?
11:07 am
Vicuna

*Now
11:08 am
FMitch

maybe if I just go 'mm' 'ahh' or 'so right' from time to time that would work.
Vi dear you always talk with eloquence (good babble word there too but not in todyas grid she says hastily cheching the tiles).
11:09 am
Haz1558

Probably an emoticon for looking grave and in agreement would have a little man rubbing his chin.
11:09 am
Haz1558

But then people might just think he needs a shave.
11:09 am
Vicuna

The "I need a shave" eyebrows would be very different from the "I am wise and agreeable" eyebrows.
11:10 am
Vicuna

But sideways punctuation seems a little unequal to the task in either case.
11:11 am
Haz1558

I think FM's right. The occasional, mmmm or 'really?' should keep us happy.
11:11 am
FMitch

LOL
11:11 am
Wolvie

11:12 am
Haz1558

Well done Wolvie!
11:12 am

Yay for Wolvie!
11:12 am
Atalante

lol apologies in advance for grid words, but the best I can come up with for the po9 so far is poetfarts
11:12 am
FMitch

RMC could = rub my chin which means pondering something.
11:12 am
Vicuna

lol - run it together with one what samples the flavor

Indeed.

When you think about it, the out7/44 and the ou8/60 are complete opposites.
11:17 am
Haz1558

One letter makes all the difference.
11:18 am
Haz1558

This is where FM, if she were here, would be obliged to say 'you're so right'.
11:18 am

You're right, Ata.
11:21 am
Atalante

have you seen the latest on jordan?
11:22 am
Haz1558

I saw the headlines in the papers and she's on the front cover of one of the magazines. Such an awful woman.
11:22 am
Haz1558

I'm waiting for the 'captured by aliens' headlines. She'll say anything for publicity.
11:23 am
Atalante

you'd never imagine a p3 "glamour girl" and complete tart would have been raped. amazing how she uses it for the publicity
11:23 am
Atalante

I wish she was
11:23 am
Haz1558

I imagine she imagines she'll get sympathy.
11:24 am
Atalante

still cant get over how ugly her boyriend is
11:24 am
Haz1558

Maybe he has a wonderful personality.
11:25 am
Haz1558

Written in improbable font.
11:28 am
Atalante

I suppose it's possible
11:29 am
ch1212

Good morning. Must confess, I had no idea who you were speaking of (Jordan), so I googled the references you made. My goodness. Apparently she is more press-worthy across the pond than here.
11:29 am
Atalante

apparently we have nothing else to discuss over here!
11:30 am
Atalante

now look up jordan and alex and see her ugly boyfriend!
11:30 am
Haz1558

Hello ch1212. She's ghastly but sadly, some young women see her as a role model because she has made lots of money.
11:30 am
Atalante

it's just a shame, cos she's not stupid by any means
11:31 am
Haz1558

It's one of those cases where you could argue about who is exploiting whom.
11:31 am
Atalante

both
11:31 am

Ata, just looked up Alex ... is he the fighter?
11:32 am

ch1212

Ah.
11:32 am
Atalante

and "actor" hahaha
11:32 am
Haz1558

He's probably a bit punch drunk and therefore lacking in judgement.
11:33 am
Atalante

he certainly looks it
11:33 am
Atalante

she's our paris hilton, ch
11:34 am
ch1212

I understand. We have several young women who are unfortunate role models here. We try to offset them with Miley Cyrus, who by all accounts, is genuinely sweet and positive.
11:35 am
Haz1558

Minus the heiress bit and the privileged background plus artifical chest assets.
11:36 am
Vicuna

Miley Cyrus does pole dancing performances and posed nude while under age. I'm afraid I don't want my daughter looking at her as a role model no matter how sweet she is in her personal life.
11:36 am
Atalante

and with a host of improbably named kids
11:36 am
Haz1558

It's depressing that so-called female liberation has led to women exploiting themselves, making themselves look cheap all for the sake of money.
11:36 am
ch1212

Really Vi? I had not heard that. That's upsetting.
11:37 am
ch1212

Good point, Haz.
11:37 am
Vicuna

Yeah. It is. =P
11:37 am
Atalante

can you spell the Tiammiiimiimii kid's name, Haz?
11:37 am
Haz1558

And they can say what they like about them exploiting men etc, but it's a very ugly trade.
11:38 am
Vicuna

Well, I should specify when I say she posed nude, all her bits were technically covered. But only by a sheet which she held up in a provocative come-hither way.
11:38 am
Haz1558

I think it's Princess (that's what they call her and it tells you everything) Tiamii.
11:39 am
rururocks

pr 7/32.. I am missing the pr 5 before it too
11:39 am
Vicuna

And the weirdest part was that her parents were chaperoning the photo shoot!
11:39 am
Atalante

you missed an a. Tiiaami. for shame!
11:40 am
Haz1558

pr5/12 - ending in double consonant - pr7 looks like an affectionate version. (couple of vowels)
11:40 am
Haz1558

I knew it looked light on vowels.
11:40 am
ch1212

That is disturbing. I also dislike the 'tart' clothes that I see on little girls as young as 4 or 5.
11:40 am
rururocks

thanks a lot
11:40 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, ruru.

I agree, ch - but that's down to greedy manufacturers and silly parents who won't say no and stick to it.

i sadly may have to be cutting out (or seriously limiting) cheese/dairy from my diet anyhow, so i guess having a health/medical reason will help with the fitness/weight goal...

Sad, Soodlebum!
1:58 pm
Shivs Fitz

Do any of you play games on Yahoo or Lexulous? A few of us do and some can be played via email.
1:58 pm

Sorry Shivs -- I left for a bit -- yes, it's a lovely place I'm in :)
1:58 pm

i play lexulous now and then
1:58 pm
Shivs Fitz

Hiya and welcome back, jillibus!
1:59 pm
jillibus

Shivs, I play Lexulous on FB and email
1:59 pm
Shivs Fitz

I have to make a new account on there. I had one but lost the sign in info for it!
1:59 pm
Soodlebum

Shivs - Babble takes up too much of my time as it is. I darent get hooked on any other games. Mind you, BabbleRabbles pin the tail on the pismire sounds interesting. (ahem!)
2:00 pm
jillibus

There's a Babble group on FB
2:00 pm
Shivs Fitz

I am on FB with my maiden name, Jill, so I don't put that about in here...it's only for connecting with my university alumni. I use it strictly for that purpose and don't go there much.
2:01 pm
Shivs Fitz

LOL, I won't ask what that game is, Soodle! You can play Scrabble on Yahoo or Lexulous though and it's good! I should make another account while I think of it and before I forget...though I keep getting reminded lately, LOL.
2:02 pm
Soodlebum

I like www.ISC.ro - nice people there.
2:02 pm
jillibus

OK Shivs. Now I really must go and get lunch and various other things. Down to 181 left now.
2:03 pm
Shivs Fitz

Later then, jillibus! I used to play on that site a couple years ago, Soodle...then I got on Yahoo! and played more on there.
2:03 pm
jillibus

BTW, the version of Lexulous on FB has more goodies like charts and stats and such than the email version has.
2:04 pm
Shivs Fitz

Oh does it jillibus? I don't use FB for anything except keeping in touch with my uni alumni though. I won't connect with anyone else there because I use it only for that reason.
2:04 pm
Shivs Fitz

I keep that separate from everything else!
2:06 pm
jillibus

It's really the only reason I joined FB -- back when it was Scrabulous. Now my family are all on too so I do see their pictures and such.
2:06 pm
Shivs Fitz

Mine are on Yahoo! and Twitter, so I'm there with them.
2:06 pm
jillibus

I think our Flosey plays bridge on Yahoo.
2:07 pm
Shivs Fitz

And Google... we all have profiles and photos on there, except I haven't posted any photos yet. I don't like to put any of my children online.
2:07 pm
jillibus

I don't think Yahoo is as big in the social networking area here as it is in the UK.
2:08 pm
Shivs Fitz

Yahoo does have good word games! There is a Scrabble game you can play with up to 5 players and a game similar to this, that you can play with 2-6 or 8 players, I think it is?
2:08 pm
jillibus

I'm just starting on Google. Should connect there with you, maybe? But not now -- gotta go!!!
2:08 pm
Shivs Fitz

Oh are you on the Google messenger?
2:09 pm
Shivs Fitz

I am with the address in my bio.

atalante, the three main options are: 1) sell them yourself and don't make much (such as on ebay), 2) sell them to a dealer and don't make much (they have to resell at a profit), 3) try to sell them for top dollar and end up sitting on them for years (likemost of us used bookdealers)

2:56 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

however, i often hear from people who think they have a first and they don't
2:57 pm
Atalante

1st edition isn't always enough
2:57 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

there's a lot of misinformation and confusion about what a true first is.
2:57 pm
joey

Gwen, do author signed books make them more valuable?
2:57 pm
jacq

nods, they have been looked at, someone offered me £25 a book, i just laughed at them
2:58 pm
zoozzoom

does the IBN have to be 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1?
2:58 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

joey, not unless the author is collectible. i've signed books and made them less valualbel lol
2:58 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

okay, everyone, one questino at a time. zoom, that's a number line, not an isbn
2:58 pm
joey

thanks. and thanks for making me smile!!
2:58 pm

there are some UK books that don't have the full series at 1st printing

not every publisher uses a number line. those that do don't use them in the same way as others.

oops, sorry
3:00 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

a true first must be the first printing of the first edition. too often i see someone with a 13th printing, let's say, insisting it's a first edition. it's not.
3:00 pm
Boobear

clue for st 7
3:00 pm
jacq

not the same
3:00 pm
jacq

the first one was a gift from my daughters teacher she got it from the authoress
3:01 pm
zoozzoom

is there a site to show what a true first edition should look like?
3:01 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

after harry potter became a hit, true firsts started selling for $1000s or dollars. now, having a true first of one of the later books is no big deal since they printing what, 12 million of them?
3:01 pm
jacq

nods
3:02 pm
Pinikula

oh, something from the lower right E for nbt before I get back to work, plz/thx
3:02 pm

3:03 pm

zoom, short answer, no. i recommend the following book, Pocket Guide to Identification of First Editions, which you can get here: http://www.mcbridepublisher.com
3:03 pm
zoozzoom

Thanks gwen :-)
3:03 pm
Atalante

I can identify first eds for 2 authors lol.
3:04 pm
Pinikula

ok...off I go (UGH!) ... see you all later this evening...
3:04 pm
zoozzoom

bye Pini
3:04 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

every publisher uses its own code system to indicate firsts. then there is the whole issue of "points" or variations between different units of a printing
3:04 pm
Boobear

reclue the st 6 please ..not getting it
3:05 pm
zoozzoom

sounds like it can be very confusing..even to the point into being duped .
3:05 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

however, the reason firsts became collectible is that books used to be printed from plates that wore out a little more with each copy printed, so the first was simply a better product. this is no longer true, so the whole craze for firsts of modenr books is silly, IMO
3:06 pm
Atalante

it's just "prestige"
3:06 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

zoom, quite true. there are forgers out there who fake these things up. i once saw an old book with a forged code on it, someone did a very bad job trying to make it look like a first
3:07 pm
zoozzoom

but then isn`t the proof reading copies the true first editions?
3:07 pm
lbdawger

s
3:07 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

mode publishers these days use a simple number line. a few are weird, such as random house and littel golden books, who have their own systems
3:08 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

zoom, no. those are pre-publication. first edition refers to books put up for sale
3:09 pm
zoozzoom

yes that makes sense..sorry just curious..as i have seen some proof copies going for £38,000..silly money..lol
3:10 pm
Atalante

copies of what?
3:10 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

there is a whole nother collecting area for pre-published books: advance copies, advance reading copies, advance review copies, galleys, etc (more info at my glossary, here: http://tomfolio.pbworks.com/Glossary )
3:10 pm
zoozzoom

these are the harry potter books i am talking about Ata.
3:11 pm
Atalante

ah ok
3:11 pm
zoozzoom

excellent ..thanks gwen will look now.
3:11 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

yes, the proof copy of a collectible book will probably be valuable. i understand that a pre-published manuscript for the original Alcoholics Anonymous book sold for oner $25,000 a few years back
