I didn't realise he was still working! great stuff he does
2:51 am
herinfernallady

I am sorry but anyone that claims they have ''friends'' watching the chat freaks me the hell out which is why i have been lurking
2:51 am
rbud

ah, yes, I agree he is a disturbing influence, who or whatever he is
2:52 am
jillibus

herin, did you get my email today?
2:52 am
mrpresident

infern, dont judge him to harshly... he has a fan base that look up to his values, being passionate and being predisposed to outbursts of passion are two different things... it will all calm down me thinks
2:52 am
Atalante

how should he be judged for abusing Andree, mrp?
2:53 am
rbud

but - anyone who makes people feel uncomfortable is not a good addition to Babble, imho.
2:53 am
herinfernallady

looking
2:53 am
jillibus

Stop it! You are abusing him!
2:53 am
herinfernallady

I swear if someone makes me feel this uncomfortable I am not going to remain sillet

I am leaving.
2:53 am
mrpresident

andree is upset, fair enough... i love andree.
I also appreciate individual choices
2:53 am

no, we aren't. we are discussing his actions
2:53 am
mrpresident

jilli, don't leave!
2:54 am
flosey

I've never seen him say anything disturbing
2:54 am
jillibus

Herin, you are making yourself uncomfortable by believeing a lot of nonsense and refusing to listen to the truth.
2:54 am
Atalante

good
2:54 am
Atalante

mrp, it isn't a load of nonsense
2:54 am
herinfernallady

Fine I am leaving. Its not worth being in tears
2:54 am
jillibus

I was half asleep anyway but I won't stay quiet about this and have said my piece.
2:55 am
Atalante

well nor will people who think he is a bullying creep
2:55 am
flosey

bullying? creep?
2:55 am
jillibus

And that isn't abusing him?
2:55 am
Atalante

no, it's my opinion of him based on his words
2:56 am
flosey

I think he's a gentle sweet guy
2:56 am
rbud

he disturbs me constantly by calling everyone by their real names - but only the ones he "approves" of, and the constant "you have mail" and so on, and so on...
2:56 am
Atalante

a sweet gentle guy who wrote a blog abusing andree? nice ...
2:56 am
jillibus

You are right, flosey.
2:56 am
flosey

I missed that, sorry
2:57 am
mrpresident

well, I have always liked him and everyone is entitled to screw up
2:57 am
rbud

sorry, I usually don't say much, but this has gotten to me. I read his blog, it was an obsessive rant, as far as I'm concerned, and totally uncalled for.
2:57 am
Atalante

agreed
2:57 am
Andree

hi everyone
2:58 am
jillibus

Disagree if you like, but don't go overboard.

it certainly was a rant

Andree

he insuled me and does not even know me
2:59 am
mrpresident

as I said, he was being over passionate and it spilled over to a personal level that shouldn't have happened
2:59 am
Andree

and what dog i get is my decision alone
2:59 am
Haz1558

I think the most unfortunate aspect of J.C. is that he has managed to divide babblers so effectively. It's continuing even without him being here. I've been under attack from him (didn't you get e-mails from him,jillibus and flosey, suggesting that I was quite the sort of person to send abusive e-mails to babblers?). so I know what it's like to feel his venom.
2:59 am
mrpresident

here sally
2:59 am
VolleymomDee

mrp, I wouldn't call that passionate (even by definition); hurtful and inappropriate

I have not had any email from JC, he has never said anything to me about anyone else
3:00 am
mrpresident

absolutely andree!
3:00 am
Sally-catlover

You can disagree with someoneone's lifestyle but you should not insult them.
3:00 am
Andree

he is a mean horrible man and that is nothing to what he said about me
3:00 am
Sally-catlover

Thanks mrp.
3:00 am
Haz1558

He probably didn't know that I have copies of e-mails between him and others. I kept quiet about him for a long time, out of respect to those who seemed to enjoy his company. I'll go back to ignoring him if he ever comes around again, again out of respect to those who do enjoy him and because it's safer to stay under his radar of abuse.
3:01 am
Andree

how dare anyone lift a profile from babble, its so not in the right spirit
3:01 am
rbud

the link is in his profile here, and it's the comments that really go too far. Trifioso stuck up for Andree, and did a lovely job, too.
3:01 am
VolleymomDee

totally agree about that andree
3:01 am
Atalante

yes, she really did!
3:02 am
Atalante

he has his spies, as he says. but we notice what goes on too ...
3:02 am
Andree

he calls them " followers" its pretty sick, i would be really embarrased at being called anyones follower
3:03 am
jillibus

t
3:03 am
jillibus

Twitter calls them followers and so do several other networks.
3:03 am
Haz1558

One of the positive things about babble has always been that we can discuss all sorts of subjects and although we don't agree with each other, there is a spirit of tolerance. If I were to express my opposition every time someone made a decision I didn't agree with, I'd probably become extremely unpopular. I've learned to be more tolerant, it's a pity that J.C. apparently hasn't been able to understand why babblers feel so disturbed that he has ridden roughshod through the standards that have built up over the years.
3:03 am
mrpresident

I support pure breed dogs, but I don't object to anyone taking in a pet from any place!! His objections were strong and wide felt.
Yes, he has divided babblers, but we are kind to eachother and know what can happen on this chog.
Those of us that are 'family' can argue and disagree, but still get over it. I love all opinions, but abuse is past opinion
3:04 am
Andree

and i need to say a word here in herin's defence, she would have liked me to get a rescue pet but wishes me well anyway, she is most upset about the cyber bullying and is not afraid to say so
3:05 am
mrpresident

I think I simplified what you said Haz LOL!! you are a scholar
3:05 am
Atalante

babble is not his playground to garner minions in and be adored, as much as he wants it that way
3:06 am
Andree

j c has divided babblers fortunatly not many left on his side, he has really in trif's words crossed the line
3:06 am
mrpresident

I am pleased you have the pet you want andree!!
3:06 am
Haz1558

And now, I don't know about anyone else, but have you seen the size of this grid?

i should get him by the end of the month and a play date would be fun
3:08 am
mrpresident

oh what a cutie!!!
3:09 am
Andree

he is exactly what i want, i would have loved a pure spaniel but need something smaller and low shedding
3:09 am

3:12 am
herinfernallady

Excuse me but did someone say that we are attacking JC because of his lifestyle? DID i just read that right?>
3:13 am
Sally-catlover

OK, back from speed reading. Well said and defended Trifioso. Hadn't realised JC was who he says he is although I had wondered. Someone in the public eye should perhaps choose words more carefully! Anyway, back to this ginormous grid.
3:14 am
mrpresident

where did you read that infern?
3:14 am
herinfernallady

Sallycat 300am: You can disagree with someoneone's lifestyle but you should not insult them. Does this mean you are saying Sally that we are attacking him because of his lifestyle?
3:15 am
Atalante

no, herin, I don't think so. I think she meant Andree's lifestyle getting a bred puppy
3:15 am
rbud

I don't think that's how she meant it, herin, I believe she was saying he was picking on Andree's lifestyle, actually.
3:15 am
mrpresident

Was she referring to Andree and her choices perhaps?
3:16 am
Andree

i don't think his lifestyle was mentioned, that would make us as judgemental as he is
3:16 am
herinfernallady

good ok sure ok Thanks sorry I will shut the frog up. Go bang my head on a wall sorry. I must have miss read
3:16 am
Sally-catlover

No, no, no!! I meant that JC could disagree with Andree getting a pure-bred, but should not make it a personal attack.
3:16 am
herinfernallady

Thank you Sally. I am going to go stick my head under a tap and hopefully drown this cold.
3:16 am
herinfernallady

can't be arsed arguing any more.

Don't bang your head on the wall, herin. Breathe deeply, count to ten and look at that nice big grid over there. < THOUSANDS of points, THOUSANDS.

morning Lori, feeling Christmassy already?
3:35 am
Sally-catlover

One thing about this grid, just add er and plural to everything. Seems so much nicer that way! Must be off for now, back later.
3:35 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Lori. Now, you've got more than 7000 points coming your way, I hope you're looking forward to the work ahead?
3:36 am
Haz1558

Bye Sally!
3:36 am

bye Sally
3:36 am
LoriP

Am I reading correctly? Andree is cruel to bot beast and child, by adding no supper to her list of evils? :p
3:36 am
Atalante

quite possibly, yep!
3:37 am
LoriP

Bye Sally. Hazaurus, a big grid is perfect for me today, a welcome distraction.
3:37 am
LoriP

*both, not bot
3:37 am
Haz1558

Oh good! There's nothing like a distraction to distract you from unwelcome distractions.
3:38 am
LoriP

Oooh, and it's redundant redundancy day to. Yea!
3:38 am
LoriP

Is that the theme? :D
3:39 am
Haz1558

Yes. And we have to avoid using the word 'challenge'.
3:39 am
Atalante

which is very cha - difficult
3:40 am
LoriP

I dare you to not say challenge.
3:40 am
Haz1558

I mean - the songwriter didn't pen the words 'Breaking up is challenging' - no, 'Breaking up is hard to do'.
3:40 am
LoriP

***also wonders why***
3:42 am
Haz1558

It's a pet peeve of mine. It's used all the time, as a verb, a noun, an adjective and it's starting to become meaningless and an excuse not to look up a word with the same meaning and use it instead.
3:42 am
LoriP

Are you unanimous in that sentiment?
3:43 am
Haz1558

Journalists and politicians and policy writers love it.
3:43 am
Atalante

and news readers
3:43 am
lynxxx

uh oh, I think I have accidently hit on a sore point
3:43 am
Haz1558

Completely unanimous and diplomatic with it.
3:45 am
Haz1558

Maybe it's a UK thing, lynxxx? I'm not getting at you, being all diplomatic and all, but it's getting to be as widespread as 'I was like and he was like'.
3:45 am
Atalante

aussies are too busy talking about sheilas and barbies
3:45 am
Haz1558

So far we haven't had journalists reporting conversations with politicians in those terms ''I was like - what are you going to do about the economy and he was like 'it's challenging'
3:46 am
lynxxx

no, we use the word here a lot too, although I wouldn't say excessively
3:46 am

hi red!
3:48 am
Atalante

I heard a really funny joke about Gordon Brown yesterday. Can I copy it in here, it's quite long, but not toooooo long
3:48 am
LoriP

The phrase I've come to despise is "at the end of the day". It's so overused, it makes me want to scream.
3:48 am
Haz1558

On you go. Have you proofread it for the c word?
3:49 am
Haz1558

At the end of the day it's only an expression, Lori.
3:49 am
Dianne

Hi all - how about "that being said"?
3:49 am
Atalante

At last Gordon Brown decided to throw the towel in and resign. His cabinet colleagues decided it would be a worthy gesture to name a railway locomotive after him. So a senior civil servant went from Whitehall to the National Railway Museum at York , to investigate the possibilities.

"We have a number of locomotives at the NRM without names" the Director told the top civil servant. "Mostly freight locomotives though."

"Oh dear, that's not very fitting for a prime minister" said the civil servant. "How about that big green one, over there?" he said, pointing to number 4472.

"That's already got a name" said the director. "It's called 'Flying Scotsman'."

"Oh. Couldn't it be renamed?" asked the civil servant. "This is a national museum after all, funded by the taxpayer."

"I suppose it might be considered," said the director. "After all, the LNER renamed a number of their locomotives after directors of the company, and even renamed one of them Dwight D Eisenhower."

"That's excellent", said the civil servant, "So that's settled then .. let's look at renaming 4472. But how much will it cost? We can't spend too much, given the expenses scandal!"


Well, said the director, "We could always just paint out the 'F'."

There's no way that Ata can be any smugger than a new granny to be.
3:55 am
grannyrose

lol,haz, you got that right
3:55 am
Atalante

Ata is utterly smug at having a spaniel instead of children!
3:55 am
Haz1558

Oh, but there's a glow that comes off new grannies to be.
3:56 am
grannyrose

ata, both adorable, but not interchangeable, i'm thinking
3:57 am
grannyrose

btw, point count for this grid is 7020
3:58 am

I'm hoping the points will start to stack up nicely when I start finding longer words.
3:58 am
Atalante

haz, PB!
3:59 am
grannyrose

haz, lots of words with z and w ,either beginning or in them
3:59 am
Haz1558

No, PB is suspended for grids of more that 390 words. I've just decided.
4:00 am
Atalante

get thee in there and start making cheesecakes for us all!
4:00 am
Haz1558

arthrodesis isn't in the grid today again. Some day...
4:00 am
grannyrose

ouch, haz, don't remind me!!!!!
4:01 am
Haz1558

It would be gruel and water in the PB if I had my way.
4:01 am
Haz1558

I know, granny, but wouldn't it be fantastic if it was in the grid some day? I'd beat you for smugness.
4:01 am
Atalante

arthrodire / arthrodires would be good too
4:02 am

When all's said and done, it was a noble ambition, Lori.
4:04 am

what a challenging time for you, lori
4:04 am
LoriP

At least I gave it 110%.
4:05 am
Haz1558

I give every grid at least 200%
4:05 am

Portuguese mister and missus, too
4:09 am

4:12 am
gortmold

did our duststorm make it to international news?
4:12 am
Haz1558

Okay, we'll accept the Australian excuse. It's late and all that.
4:12 am
grannyrose

apparently it's settled, according to mrp. but the dust is in everything and everywhere
4:13 am
lynxxx

Not in my part of the world BabRab, Andree & MRP might have a problem still though
4:13 am
gortmold

it's not settled here - storm blew to queensland (1500kms north of sydney)
4:13 am

'So, LoriP, why have you come to Australia?' 'Well, I saw the news and I was like WOW, those people need me 110%. So, at the end of the day, i was like, WOW, I need to get there and give my all.'
4:17 am
grannyrose

hey, andree, the babrab was asking anout the dust storm.
4:17 am
gortmold

feel like a tiny child placing it's sticky, linguistic hand into granny's kindly one and being led to learning
4:17 am
LoriP

There's no i in team, that's my cleaning motto.
4:17 am
Andree

as soon as i got home from work via the hairdresser for a much needed haircut out came the hose, everything was inch deep in red dust , i hosed house windows cars, outdoor furniture, my poor veg garden looked derelict

That sounds like just another day in my house Andree.
4:19 am

the house needs a good clean but that must wait, or maybe lori could pop over
4:19 am
grannyrose

ok, shakesperean poems, change the first vowel
4:19 am
Atalante

at least you haven't got your pup yet - cream puppy + red dust = challenging
4:19 am
gortmold

i did get it thanks granny, just a bit late, got a lotta dust on the brain
4:20 am
LoriP

Call me thick, but I jus don't see what the problem is.......
4:20 am
grannyrose

right then, we are up to after the se mister and missus without the h, right?
4:20 am
BabbleRabble

does this red dust get adventuresome on a regular basis?
4:20 am
Andree

it was quite disgusting to be driving about, every car was filthy and knowing mine looked like that too, would have gone to the car wash but the line was a mile long
4:21 am
gortmold

almost, granny, need the 5 and the 7 on either side of the almost-poem
4:21 am
Andree

ist time in 70 years babble
4:21 am
Andree

i have never seen it before
4:22 am
Haz1558

What you need are trained elephants to hoover up the dust and blow it back where it came from. I don't deny there might be a problem with their(ahem) droppings, but it's a very ecologically friendly way of coping with the crisis. You have many elephants in AUstralia?
4:22 am
grannyrose

se5, an aperient, se7, plurals the almost poem
4:22 am
lynxxx

Not very common BabRab. They are comparing this one to one that happened over Melbourne about 25 years ago
4:22 am
gortmold

actually, humble ol' qld had one 6 years ago, a few roos got asthma and that was about it
4:22 am

4:22 am

At last she will know the benefit of an expert at work. And she'll smell wonderful, as well.
7:31 am
Atalante

our vets have started a grooming service - it's wonderful, really. 2 of the vet nurses do it, and they do anal glands and everything, so actually I'll get a full groom for about £5 cos the rest gets balanced out by the lack of needing a separate bum squeezing appt
7:31 am
Haz1558

Replace the d with an s and you'd have places for Mr Connery fans to hang out.

Welcome back, Ata
8:21 am
mom2han8

Yes... it is the American Museum of Folk Art or something like that... related to the Met in some way, I believe... I remember the Grandma Moses paintings and the textiles, though it had to have been 25 years ago.
8:22 am

te7/38 - looks like the same structure as what Australians call their cans of beer.
11:00 am
aebmusica

I don't know any Australian lingo.....?
11:00 am
Haz1558

Or just slip an extra vowel in before the end of the racquets game.
11:01 am
aebmusica

It's what we used to call gym shoes in the 50's.
11:02 am
Haz1558

Over here they were called gutties, after gutta percha, I think it's what they were made from.
11:02 am
rururocks

austrailians have such weird lingo when it comes to beer
11:03 am
aebmusica

How did they come upon that word for beer...because of how many ounces in a can?
11:04 am
hurshy

anyone have de8?
11:04 am
Haz1558

It's the only one I know, I think. They call their cans tins.
11:05 am
Haz1558

de8 = de, a mathematical term running into the last letters of a canvas dwelling.
11:05 am
hurshy

thankee haz!!
11:05 am
Haz1558

You're welcome!
11:06 am

11:18 am
Haz1558

First three letters are an anagram of the first number, add the word I clued about the Australian cans of beer, removing one of the double consonants.
11:19 am
Haz1558

Does that make sense?
11:19 am

Master's in Teaching, aeb... starts officially on Tuesday but of course I am trying to do a bit of reading ahead; and there is an assignment for the first day of class already
11:32 am

that doesn't work, aeb! LOL
11:32 am
aebmusica

I know I've been to Nantes
11:32 am
stidmama

glad to here that, Haz! I am sure the critters are pleased! -- Mother said there didn't appear to be as many pet dogs as we have here... they were surprised by that.
11:33 am
stidmama

And there were SO MANY sheep! LOL and there were cows that looked like oreo cookies apparently, and the robins are teeny-tiny compared to the American robin. all sorts of interesting discoveries they made
11:34 am
Haz1558

Yes, lots and lots of sheep. And our robins are modest creatures. The oreo cookie cows are probably Belted Galloways.
11:35 am
Haz1558

It's one of the fun things about travel, finding all the little differences.
11:35 am
stidmama

I will tell Mother and she can look that up for comparison (the cows). There is a herd of Limousine cows down in Oregon, so many different breeds.
11:35 am
Haz1558

If they were up in the Glens, some of the terrain is so hilly that only sheep can gr5 up there. (nearly in the pb again)
11:36 am

quick hello while my lunch cooks. blimey, big grid today!
11:36 am

their tour kept to the coastline, mostly. They got to the big Aran island, and spent some time in Dingle as well as visiting Dublin and Belfast.
11:37 am
stidmama

hey trifioso!
11:37 am
Haz1558

Hello Trif - yes, value for money today.
11:37 am
stidmama

*grin* "Eire" is in the grid today, as is "Erin" LOL
11:37 am
Haz1558

I imagine they saw a very different Belfast to the black and white images of the 60s and 70s. There have been huge changes.
11:38 am
Trifioso

I LOVED the Giant's Causeway, but the wind was blowing us sideways the day we visited, and my little glll was pretty frightened by it. I think she feared blowing off!
11:38 am
Haz1558

Every time I drive through it, I'm amazed at the new buildings. Someone who hadn't been in Belfast for 20 years would not know the place.
11:38 am
stidmama

yes, they said there were a number of big improvements. but a little on edge they thought, still.
11:39 am
Haz1558

People have been washed off, Trif, it's treacherous.
11:39 am
Trifioso

yes, i believe it. I really did love it, though.
11:39 am
stidmama

it was their first trip, Haz -- but I think it won't be the last. They so thoroughly enjoyed it -- and the people they met were very nice. Which we expected.
11:40 am

I am always so disappointed that Enable won't accept "Ents"

11:44 am
stidmama

okay, advice on working with the young end of the spectrum please? better to expect and insist on compliance with procedure, or better to let them discover for themselves why to do something a particular way? (assuming it's not a dangerous thing) -- my sense is that they need to learn to follow directions before it's critical...
11:44 am
stidmama

later Haz! have a lovely evening!!

G'night all. Definitely bedtime for me.
11:45 am
Trifioso

hmmm. stid. I think you probably will have kids that will fall into both categories. Some kids will hear a logical explanation and see the logic involved and follow accordingly. And then some kids just need to pee on the electric fence, no matter how many times you tell them why they shouldn't.
11:45 am
stidmama

sweet dreams anike ((hugs)) be well.
11:45 am

Thanks Stidmama

stidmama

had some 8th graders yesterday who were very openly defiant, and others who were willing to learn. I was surprised to see the change in attitude from last year.
11:47 am
stidmama

same kids, new year -- might be "top dog" syndrome (in which case I can let them know who's Alpha!) or just normal adolescent poopy-headedness...
11:48 am
Trifioso

Some of the defiant ones don't mean to be disrespectful, I really believe that! They just are more curious than disciplined - Will my coat REALLY catch on fire if I but it near the bunsen burner? Huh. Yes. What do you know.
11:48 am
narnia queen

good luck narnia -- take eyeball breaks regularly!
11:49 am
Trifioso

it doesn't necessarily make them less irritating
11:49 am
stidmama

I keep trying to make "seize" work
11:50 am
Trifioso

I tried to remember that when I was teaching high school drama - the kids who always wanted to be front and center had a need to be there. I would try to let them, within reason.
11:50 am

7:10 pm

4. (the hardest for some kids) laugh about it - find a smart way to agree with them in a humourous way. ex. respone to "Your face looks funny" could be, "You should see my brother!"

She probably gave him some ideas like this but I give them slowly and often have to cue them for a long time (This might be a good time to walk away because it is just a computer that won't work and it won't work if you turn it off. You have way more power than it does)
