Something at the back of my mind tells me that it was someone from here who deciphered it. I'll have to google to find out. A clergyman who was rather brilliant.
3:03 am
Atalante

tell us when you find out!!
3:03 am
jillibus

did you measure it?
3:05 am
Atalante

nope, it's fairly impossible to get close to, always crowds of screaming kids around it, especially now they've moved it right next to the gallery entrance
3:05 am
Haz1558

Apparently a Thomas Young, English clever clogs.
3:05 am

I'd just stick with Liam Neeson, Haz. You're on sa4 grounds there
3:07 am

But there's a Rosetta district in Belfast. There must be some connection.

You're not going to give the credit to the French!
3:09 am
Haz1558

I think he was Thomas Young's assistant who tried to steal the glory.
3:09 am
Atalante

ooo, you would think ...
3:09 am
Haz1558

By 1814 Young had deciphered the Rosetta Stone.
3:10 am
sprite

don't worry, Haz, it is probably pronounced Djeen-Franskoys Champoo-Lion
3:10 am
Haz1558

Rosetta decoding wars.....
3:11 am
Haz1558

Later in the text - Champillion was unwilling to share the credit.
3:11 am
Atalante

blooming Frenchies
3:11 am
Haz1558

What do you think? Film or mini-series?
3:12 am
Atalante

mini-series
3:12 am
jillibus

Well, 88 left and I'm off to bed -- have a good day, everyone!
3:12 am

sleep well, jilli, and dream even better *hugs*
3:12 am
Haz1558

Lots of opportunities for sunsets over pyramids.
3:12 am
Haz1558

Good night jillibus.
3:12 am
Andree

bye jlli
3:13 am
jillibus

Let me know when the mini-series is ready
3:13 am
Atalante

yep. and some good cliffhangers for the episodes
3:13 am
jillibus

*poof*
3:13 am
Haz1558

We will, jillibus. I favour the young Omar Sharif for a starring role.
3:13 am
Atalante

ooo yes.
3:14 am
Haz1558

LIam Neeson for the Irish man who probably did all the hard work while the French man and Young argued in tents.
3:16 am
Atalante

Jean Reno in there somewhere
3:16 am
sprite

I am off, please think of me
3:16 am

Bye sprite, hope all goes well.
3:16 am

good luck sprite, hope all goes well

herinfernallady

Hi
3:21 am
Haz1558

Hello, herin.
3:21 am
Andree

hi herin
3:22 am
herinfernallady

How are you?
3:22 am
Haz1558

Ata, did I ever tell you about the Wild Beast episode?
3:22 am
herinfernallady

Hi Andree and Ata and Haz Ata sent you that message but didn't realise you were still a lot poo
3:23 am
Atalante

no, haz!
3:23 am
Haz1558

Well, last Sunday we had the emergency line from the surgery. I took a phone call from police control centre in Coleraine.
3:24 am
Atalante

yes, still fairly blech. having blood tests today
3:24 am
Haz1558

The story was that a lady had returned home from an evening out and reported to her boyfriend that a wolf or a bear, in any case a large wild creature, had crossed her path.
3:24 am
Atalante

there was a Wild Beast on the run???!!
3:24 am
Haz1558

The boyfriend, being a concerned citizen, went out looking for said beast the next morning. (He was either scared of the dark or his torch batteries had run out)
3:25 am
Haz1558

Anyway, he discovered the corpse of an animal in the stream near their house. He immediately decided that the wild beast must have devoured the animal and that the citizenry of Ballymena should be informed.
3:26 am
Atalante

oh nooooo
3:26 am
Haz1558

He rang the police, they went out to look, couldn't work out what had happened and would the vet come to see what it was, determine cause of death and basically say that there was NOT a bear on the rampage so that they could quash any rumours.
3:26 am
Haz1558

True to form, when I told husband, his first words were 'i'm not missing lunch over the head of this.'
3:27 am
Haz1558

Priorities.
3:27 am
Haz1558

Anyway, after lunch he headed off to find this slain animal.
3:27 am
Atalante

well yes! lunch or rampaging wild animals ... no contest
3:27 am
Haz1558

It was a dead sheep, had been dead for many days, had probably slipped into the stream, drowned and had been dinner for local foxes etc.
3:28 am
Haz1558

So the rumour of the Beast of Ballymena never got started. AND he got his lunch.
3:28 am
Haz1558

But wouldn't you have thought that the boyfriend might have asked the girlfriend just how much she had had to drink?
3:28 am
Atalante

*rolls eyes* can't people tell the difference between a freshly killed something and something that had been lying around for a while!
3:29 am
herinfernallady

ewww
3:29 am
Atalante

yes ......
3:29 am
Haz1558

No, Ata. If only they watched CSI...
3:29 am
Andree

in a few months that will make a great story at a party after a few ales haz
3:30 am
Haz1558

Just for badness, he should have told the police that he had found huge pawprints.
3:30 am
Atalante

he should LOOL
3:31 am
Haz1558

He could have had his photo in the paper, pointing solemnly to them. (We know friends with a stuffed bear, it wouldn't have been too difficult)
3:31 am
herinfernallady

hehe
3:34 am
Atalante

imagine the trauma through the small dog owners association of Ballymena
3:35 am
Haz1558

I know. And children would have been banned from playing outside.
3:35 am
herinfernallady

Ata do you like that tattoo idea?
3:37 am
Atalante

yes .... but I can't really help you straight away. you'd have to go on the waiting list :P
3:37 am
herinfernallady

That is ok i thought I would be cheeky
3:38 am
Haz1558

Yes, she's working on a design for me.
3:38 am
Haz1558

Cue hearty laughter and disbelief.
3:38 am
Atalante

oh yes, Haz is going to be uber trendy
3:39 am
Haz1558

Do you really think husband won't mind a full size portrait of George on my back?
3:39 am
Atalante

I'm sure he'd love it. .....
3:40 am
herinfernallady

thanks for teasing me :(
3:40 am
Haz1558

He'll be so interested in working out the knotwork he'll not even notice George.
3:41 am
Atalante

you can hope!
3:41 am
Haz1558

I am just teasing, getting a tattoo ranks highly on my list of it'll never happen.
3:42 am
Andree

ha ha me too haz
3:42 am
Haz1558

Too much pain.
3:43 am
Haz1558

And if they missed out an apostrophe or something, think of the trauma.
3:44 am
Atalante

some tattoo places screw up tattoos really badly
3:45 am
Atalante

cat! go away!
3:46 am
lynxxx

Hello everyone. Hi Ata, I just had a nice haf hour reading through your ramblings (and look forward to quite a few more hours). You have such a nice relaxed and informative style, you deserve to make some money out of it someday/somehow
3:46 am
Haz1558

Smugness levels rising.....
3:46 am
Andree

hi lynxxx
3:47 am
Haz1558

You do write well, Ata.
3:47 am
Haz1558

Hello, lynxxx.
3:47 am
lynxxx

hi Andree & Hugo
3:47 am
Atalante

I do have a bit of difficulty sticking to the topic under consideration LOL
3:48 am
herinfernallady

thanks for teasing me over asking Ata to do something that means something to me.
3:48 am
joshuavorbis

i like how hansel and gretel are both in the grid today
3:48 am
lynxxx

oh no, that was not a criticism at all
3:48 am
Haz1558

I don't know. You seemed to stick to the bogs for a long time.
3:48 am
Atalante

*grin* I know
3:48 am
Atalante

herin, we're not teasing you! I think it's a lovely idea
3:49 am
lynxxx

Wow Josh, I didn't even notice that
3:49 am
herinfernallady

Thank you for clarifying that
3:50 am
herinfernallady

damn it I think i broke the internet
3:50 am
Haz1558

I've got no idea what your tattoo is going to be, herin, I was just laughing at the notion that you would have to wait because Ata was working on a design for me.
3:51 am
lynxxx

PS TY Josh
3:51 am
Atalante

and you can tell me how much a wrist tattoo hurts
3:53 am
Andree

are you really getting a tat herin, ouch
3:53 am
joshuavorbis

i'm thinking of getting a new tattoo when i make my big trip to NZ in a few years
3:54 am
lynxxx

a Maori design?
3:55 am
joshuavorbis

at least hinting at maori design. i've been doing a lot of research over the past few months
3:55 am
Haz1558

I wonder if Egyptians get Rosetta stone design tattoos?
3:55 am
lynxxx

They are pretty stunning
3:55 am
joshuavorbis

some of the maori tattoo designs are more interesting than others, to me
3:56 am
herinfernallady

Thinking much about it
3:57 am
herinfernallady

Hi anyone I missed
3:57 am
joshuavorbis

i was considering getting the tattoo by traditional methods - but i wonder if that's a step too far
3:57 am
Atalante

I love Maori design
3:58 am
lynxxx

I reckon Josh
3:59 am
Haz1558

What are the traditional methods?
4:00 am
Atalante

you probably don't want to know
4:00 am
joshuavorbis

basically instead of a needle you use a wooden plank and kind of hammer it in
4:01 am
Haz1558

Have you had your sanity tested recently?
4:01 am
joshuavorbis

no, because i would certainly fail
4:02 am
Haz1558

I'm all for tradition but some things are best left to history.
4:02 am
joshuavorbis

well, it's not like modern tattoo technique is pain-free
4:03 am
Haz1558

That's true, but is this not more painful?
4:04 am
joshuavorbis

i don't think the issue is more pain, i think it is more time-intensive
4:05 am
Haz1558

The Maori method is more time intensive?
4:05 am
joshuavorbis

i think that is why it is not more widely practiced. i could be wrong though
4:05 am
Atalante

I don't think it's meant to be much more painful
4:06 am
joshuavorbis

i wouldn't be doing it to experience more pain, that's for sure
4:07 am
Haz1558

Is the final result markedly different between traditional and modern methods?
4:07 am
joshuavorbis

not if it's done correctly
4:09 am
Atalante

and I suppose you can be guaranteed to get something meaningful and Maori if done by a traditional practitioner
4:10 am
joshuavorbis

i'm not really guaranteed of that, am i?
4:10 am
joshuavorbis

maybe it will be meaningful and authentic, maybe it won't
4:11 am
Atalante

I would think you'd have more chance at a traditional practitioner
4:11 am
herinfernallady

mph I have to study
4:11 am
joshuavorbis

the trick would be finding the traditional practicioner
4:12 am
joshuavorbis

and not someone with a flyer at the youth hostel
4:12 am
Haz1558

If they have a sign outside saying 'Traditional Maori practitioner, meaningful tattoos guaranteed', you're onto a winner
4:12 am
herinfernallady

Um silly thought but ask Kiwi
4:13 am
Haz1558

If they have templates of US sports and film stars, leave!
4:13 am
Atalante

yep! I suppose it depends how much time you're willing to give up to having the tattoo done. finding someone, discussing designs etc etc
4:14 am
herinfernallady

Err simple solution ask Kiwi on here
4:14 am
forwardbyfaith

could I get some help with the lu6 please?
4:15 am
Atalante

I know a few people who would probably be able to recommend, as well as Kiwi
4:15 am
joshuavorbis

i'll be happy to do whatever footwork i need to do to get a great piece of art incorporated on some of my skin. but first i need to earn the money to pay for the trip there
4:15 am
joshuavorbis

city in switzerland, sort of, forward
4:15 am
herinfernallady

If anyone sees the busy little Kiwi
4:16 am
Haz1558

lu6 - begin with most of Miss Ball, finish with a seabird.
4:17 am

Was just doing a spot of reading on it. Maori Tattoos and Non-Maoris

By using a moko pattern for your own tattoo design, you may be insulting the Maori people. It is never ok for a non-maori to wear a Maori tattoo pattern, even if it is done with respect.

Maori tattoo patterns and symbols are a way of personal identification for the Maori people. By copying their designs you steal a part of their identity, what the Maori see as an insult.

If you want a tattoo design in the Maori style, find a tattoo artist that has experience with Maori tattoos and knows about these issues. He can design a tattoo for you that has the looks of a moko without the Maori symbolic ties.
4:17 am
forwardbyfaith

ty Haz!
4:17 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, forward.
4:17 am
Atalante

yep, absolutely
4:18 am
joshuavorbis

yeah, lynxx - that is definitely one of the concerns. but i have also read of maori people who want to share their traditional patterns with non-maori
4:18 am
Haz1558

That's interesting, lynxxx.
4:18 am
joshuavorbis

hence the real deal tattooist, and not some random guy in auckland
4:19 am
Atalante

there is, however, one *amazing* tattooist in Auckland. oh gosh, what's his name ...
4:20 am
Haz1558

Any clues on what it begins with, Ata?
4:20 am
joshuavorbis

just got fireworks, btw
4:20 am
Haz1558

Well done, josh.
4:20 am
joshuavorbis

last word is also the first, alphabetically - ac4/6

Perhaps this guy Ata.......British pop star Robbie Williams had a Maori tattoo done on his arm in 2000 by New Zealand artist Te Rangitu Netana.

Robbie Williams got into a lot of trouble over that tattoo!
4:22 am
lynxxx

I read that
4:23 am
Atalante

gosh, how did I ever end up knowing so much about tattoos?
4:24 am
joshuavorbis

i can understand how a culture who attached huge familial and political significance to tattoo symbology taking umbrage when a british (of all people) pop star "had a tattoo done"
4:24 am
Atalante

like the Spice Girls doing a haka *facepalm*
4:24 am
joshuavorbis

my verbs weren't right in that sentence but you get the idea
4:25 am
joshuavorbis

oh no, did they really?
4:25 am
Atalante

oh yes, they really did
4:25 am
joshuavorbis

how utterly appropriate
4:26 am
Atalante

it was cringeworthy. and I'm sure none of them knew why everyone was unimpressed
4:26 am
Haz1558

The All Blacks were pretty offended when the Irish rugby team advanced upon them when they were performing the Haka at an international.
4:27 am
joshuavorbis

well, given the nature of the haka and the performing it before a very competitive rugby match, i think a little gamesmanship should be permitted from the opposing side
4:27 am
Atalante

you're meant to stand and watch and be intimidated!
4:27 am
Haz1558

The Irish reasoning was that if they were going to be confronted with a warrior type thing, they were going to be as menacing as they could in return.
4:27 am
Atalante

it's amazing watching games with - say - NZ vs Fiji - watching the opposing hakas
4:28 am
Atalante

they should had whirled around some curling sticks
4:28 am
Atalante

*hurling
4:28 am
Haz1558

All they did was to link arms, adopt a menacing look and advance slowly until they were almost eye to eye.
4:28 am
Atalante

curling sticks. that's an interesting concept
4:28 am
joshuavorbis

i was treated to a drunken haka on the beach by some kiwis i met while vacationing in fiji
4:28 am
joshuavorbis

the all blacks should take offense to that before the irish
4:29 am
joshuavorbis

i was very impressed, however- granted i was drunken as well
4:29 am
lynxxx

Good on the Irish I say!
4:29 am
Atalante

absolutely!
4:30 am
Haz1558

They had a particularly belligerent captain that year, and it was actually quite good to watch, you weren't quite sure what was going to happen.
4:30 am
forwardbyfaith

anyone have the ne9/10 combo?
4:30 am
Haz1558

They've been on their best behaviour ever since - the All Blacks considered it a huge insult.
4:30 am
Atalante

I think a lot more tea,ms are standing up to the All Blacks now
4:31 am
lynxxx

I am sure Ata does
4:31 am
Haz1558

I don't, forward.

Ata was quite happy not knowing it was a ne9.10 tyvm

4:38 am
herinfernallady

Ta
4:38 am
Haz1558

No! I heard a trailer for it and thought 'There's one to avoid.' I can't stand his accent apart from anything else.
4:39 am
Atalante

I managed to watch about 4 minutes of it
4:39 am
Haz1558

Did he come through? (Sarcastic font)
4:39 am
herinfernallady

O wonderful what a berk
4:39 am
Atalante

he did! he said that he was very cross that he hadn't been interred next to Marilyn Monroe
4:40 am
Haz1558

Well, you would be, wouldn't you?
4:40 am
Atalante

and that was about all, apparently
4:40 am
Haz1558

So, are preparations being made to make things right for Michael?
4:41 am
herinfernallady

People like Derek mark me angree
4:41 am
Atalante

Derek A had some fans of MJ at the se6, they were all Utterly Convinced MJ had spoken to them, of course
4:41 am
Haz1558

The city authorities of LA are wanting to get back some of the money they spent on MJ's funeral. And there I was thinking that they were doing it for love.
4:41 am
Haz1558

Did MJ sing?
4:42 am
Atalante

quite probably
4:42 am
Atalante

I'd turned off in horror by that point
4:43 am
Atalante

and remember that Jordan is in Celebrity Jungle thingy from tonight
4:43 am
Haz1558

I wonder if Derek Acorah asked him about his reaction to the X Factor people using his song.
4:43 am
herinfernallady

Jordan or her boobs
4:43 am
Haz1558

John and Edward get to sing four words in it.
4:44 am

I steadfastly avoid 'I'm a celebrity' but no doubt there'll be articles in the press.
4:44 am

"sing"

Yes. No rapping.

it is SO FUNNY you ask me that! just yesterday a friend and I were discussing how 70% of our facebook updates are people saying they can't sleep, or that their sleep was disrupted the night before, etc. Not sure if it is a seasonal thing, mid-life or we are all just stressed out, but there it is. universal insomnia, it seems
5:01 am
Trifioso

though I should correct myself - have not heard from any one from other planets, so maybe it is confined to earth, for now
5:02 am

I hold them like babies, on their back. But Tucker is a 10 lb strong, powerful buck, so I am more cautious so he doesn't thrash and break his back.
5:20 am

I actually was just reading more about this breaking back thing - something new to worry about! have you ever tried those pedi paw things? I did get one, but the kittens have a lot more patience with it than hoppy.

I am not fully conscious nor caffeinated, plus I am not a morning person, so no point racing.
5:27 am
Trifioso

BTW, last night I had my most common recurring dream - I was at a theatre, it was time to go on, but I didn't know my lines, hadn't been to rehearsals, etc. Except this time, I was in Ireland, and the play they were doing was a long time favorite of mine - I knew all the songs and lines, and they were delighted with me, as they had no idea how they were going to stage the play without the actress who would have normally played my part.

Hi Aloy!
9:05 am

Wow! Can't believe JackieO would take the kids out to Mickey D's. I'm sure the Secret Service detail was thrilled.
9:06 am
Anniebrook

She was very gracious. I just smiled at her and she smiled back and waved at my children. She was in her signature outfit. All black and veryexpensive.

Right after Pat Nixon died I met Richard Nixon in a diner in Ramsey, NJ.... It was very early in the morning and I was on my way to Ramapo College... stopped for coffee and there he was. Gave my condolences and he thanked me... it was kind of cool!

Oh yes Richard Nixon. He sat BEHIND us at a Met game. I couldnt believe it. I went up to him with my son and a secret service agent came over and came with me to get an autograph. Still have it on the Mets score card. He was very friendly.

I'm sure Richard Nixon was convinced the country hated him after the resignation/pardon. He was probably delighted to not have things thrown at him.

Well, she makes an attractive zombie, then.

9:21 am

I was getting so confused. I was reading Eddie Falco and wondering why going out without make-up would be a problem for him.

She's very attractive but not familiar at all.

Is it not very violent?
9:28 am
Atalante

it always looked it from trailers!
9:29 am
KatieMcG

is day time tv always this bad?
9:29 am
Judi

Sopranos can be violent. Fights, shooting, a few dismemberings. Ya know - typical mob stuff.
9:29 am
KatieMcG

Oh I might give it a go lol
9:30 am
Haz1558

It looks lie the trailers were spot on!
9:30 am
Haz1558

What are you trying to watch, Katie?
9:30 am
Atalante

not too fond of dismemberment lol
9:31 am
KatieMcG

I have done murder she wrote and am now on to diagnosis murder!
9:31 am
Judi

Great writing and acting is what really makes it stand out. Oh - there's lots of sex too. Now, if that doesn't sell it, nothing else will.
9:31 am
Haz1558

Dismemberment would just about be as long a word as we could have in babble.
9:32 am
Vicuna

Plural it, Haz, and Bob's-yer-uncle. HEllo, all! Up to the usual mayhem, i see.
9:32 am
Atalante

just watch True Blood for that

Hi Vic

Hello, Vicuna!

i like Dexter
9:33 am
KatieMcG

without wanting to sound like a prude, but true blood had way too much sex in it for me
9:33 am
Aloyisius

13 letters.. Haz, how many letters in the longest word you have seen in a grid?
9:33 am
KatieMcG

I like Dexter as well but can only watch it in the daylight, managed to miss the whole third series so need to get it on DVD
9:33 am
sciencegeek

it is hilarious
9:33 am
Haz1558

I honestly can't remember, Aloy. Let me check, does Lickety not keep statistics on that sort of thing?
9:34 am
Atalante

13. cos the word stats only go to 13
9:35 am
Aloyisius

just looked.. 12 letters
9:35 am
Haz1558

cogeneration and mothproofers
9:35 am
Aloyisius

maybe we will have 13 one of these days
9:36 am
Vicuna

Yes, but have we ever had a 13, Ata? Not in Lickety's memory, so it would have to have been more than a few years ago.
9:36 am
Haz1558

If we do, you can be sure that !!! will have plenty of appearances in the chat.
9:36 am
Atalante

think we had 13 ages ago
9:36 am
Judi

Mothproofer. Now there's some juicy experience for a resume.
9:36 am
Haz1558

13 in the olden days when babblers entered words with slates and pencils.
9:36 am
Sally-catlover

So what would happen if the grade made a 14-letter word?
9:37 am
Aloyisius

lol Haz
9:37 am
Haz1558

Babble would explode.
9:37 am
Vicuna

And mailed the slates to Dr G?
9:37 am
Sally-catlover

grade sb grid!
9:37 am
Haz1558

Carrier pigeons did the job very well, I'm told, VI.
9:37 am
Judi

Yes, I think alarms would sound and the authorities would have to be notified.
9:37 am
Atalante

it wouldn't be counted in the word count I *think*
9:37 am
Haz1558

Some needed to go into weight training, especially for the longer grids.
9:38 am
Haz1558

These are questions which we need to pose to Dr-G.
9:38 am
Vicuna

I think it would be more humane to use parchment over slate in those cases.
9:38 am
Haz1558

We should request an open forum some time - 'Meet the Doc', that kind of thing.
9:39 am
Vicuna

"The Dr G is in."
9:39 am
Haz1558

Parchment would be fine except for the rain problem and the clouds etc. Soggy parchment is not good.
9:39 am
Judi

Oooh, good idea, Haz. He's so enigmatic. "Meet Dr. God at the stage door!"
9:39 am
Haz1558

Rankings would be a nightmare with people demanding recounts.
9:39 am
Judi

Would he show up in photographs, though?
9:40 am
Vicuna

Well, I guess it's a good thing we have the intertubes to carry our words now, then!
9:40 am
Haz1558

He is enigmatic, isn't he? He used to appear more often.
9:40 am
Atalante

I remember when he used to turn up almost daily
9:40 am
Aloyisius

maybe we scared him off, lol
9:40 am
Judi

Pffth. Poor sod. He must have a real job.
9:40 am

Those were the days, Ata.

9:42 am
Haz1558

Maybe we should make a list of the questions we would like to ask.
9:42 am
Judi

I doubt any of us were present when Babble was created. It was back on the 7th day, I believe. We all just blindly walked into the light.
9:42 am
Haz1558

Or would that give him too much warning? Spontaneity is good.
9:42 am
Atalante

hi Cait!
9:42 am

We were never told that this game is so addictive though, perhaps we can sue DrG

9:43 am

I want to know if he is the band ZZ Top
9:43 am
Sally-catlover

Been watching Close Encounters again Judi?

Yes, but if we admit it's addictive, some do-gooder will try to shut down the site.
9:43 am
KatieMcG

9:43 am
Judi

No, Sally... Poltergeist!
9:43 am
Sally-catlover

Social Services will turn up at the door and threaten to take our computers away!
9:43 am
Atalante

he looks fairly normally really ....
9:43 am
Haz1558

So, remember, it's not addictive, it's mildly compelling.
9:44 am
Sally-catlover

Not seen Poltergeist.

How many adverbs do you need in one sentence, Ata?

helensgirlkid

One of our cats used to bring in earthworms - not to eat, just to play with. The second it rained she would run out and start gathering them. But they dry out sooo fast on carpet, so I took to scooping them up and taking them back outdoors as fast as they came in! Now she just plays with them outside - I guess it's worth getting a little wet!
10:07 am

Haz1558

Spangle can rest easy, she won't be joined by a feline companion any time soon.
10:09 am
Sally-catlover

I think if you love any animal, you put up with its unpleasant habits.
10:10 am
Haz1558

PB hasn't seen many inmates today, we're being all generous and not noticing.
10:10 am
Haz1558

Love conquers all?
10:11 am

Something like that Haz.
10:11 am
Atalante

or you just give them a kennel to banish them to
10:12 am
Sally-catlover

Shocked. Hobbit doesn't sleep in a kennel, surely, Ata?
10:12 am
Haz1558

Yes, a cold kennel and a diet of gruel keeps Spangle on her toes.
10:12 am
Haz1558

<--------- sleeps in a kennel.
10:12 am
Atalante

husband was very worried about Spangle the other day, in case she gets cold at night
10:12 am
CiociaJudy

All my cats I "inherited" from friends and horrible neighbors who don't take care of their animals.
10:13 am
Atalante

I assured him that you would never let such a situation occur!
10:13 am
Haz1558

She's incredibly hardy, she doesn't seem to ever get cold.
10:13 am
CiociaJudy

Yikes--that C word is in the grid. *skips over to PB*
10:13 am
Sally-catlover

So is there central heating in this kennel then haz? A smal log burner perhaps, and carpet on the floor.
10:13 am
Atalante

is she a little furnace, like Hobbit?
10:14 am
Atalante

underfloor heating would be good, like in Roman villas
10:14 am
Carolryberg

My dog <------ sleeps on a heated pillow on the floor by my bed. Not toooo spoiled.
10:14 am
Haz1558

Absolutely a furnace, she's just warm all the time.
10:14 am
Atalante

ditto Hobbitella
10:15 am
Haz1558

No central heating, Sally. Husband has always insisted on her sleeping outside and she's used to it.
10:15 am
Atalante

only ever known her to shiver once, adn that was last week!
10:15 am
Haz1558

Spangle has been known to want outside to sit in the snow. She just seems impervious to the cold.
10:16 am
Sally-catlover

Only teasing Haz. Our feline companions (careful to avoid PB this time) frequently sleep under a tree in the rain.
10:16 am
Atalante

wow, that's quite impressive!
10:17 am
Haz1558

We got a new kennel for her arriving and husband spent ages insulating it etc. I had an awful dream one night that Spangle had managed to drag it to the back door and had rendered it into match wood.
10:18 am
Haz1558

I was so relieved to waken up and realise that I didn't have to break the bad news!
10:18 am
Sally-catlover

So did she sleep there from a puppy?
10:18 am
Atalante

see ... it is insulated really :P bet she has a radiator and heated pad in there too ;)
10:19 am
Haz1558

She did. We had the kennel inside the garage initially and she had hot water bottles and things until she was a bit bigger. It was moved outside into the back garden once she was older.
10:19 am
Haz1558

So we're not really THAT cruel.
10:20 am
Atalante

we believe you ....
10:21 am
Atalante

after everything you said about being told to behave by DrG though, I'm not so sure

Have you been bad, harpjane?

You can tell us. We're very discreet.

10:26 am
Sally-catlover

Yes, harpjane
10:26 am

Yes. Thinks earls, dukes and counts.
10:26 am

10:30 am

why is everyone being so lenient today?
10:31 am
Haz1558

PB and its luxuries has no deterrent effect. We're trying a different approach.
10:33 am
Haz1558

I should walk Spangle, shouldn't I? It's still light and it's still dry.
10:33 am
Haz1558

And harpjane isn't going to cough up her misdemeanours.
10:34 am
Atalante

not very light!!
10:34 am
harpjane

um, harpjanes' only sin is an occasional word in the chog?
10:35 am

It's still pretty light, we're that bit further north.
10:35 am
Atalante

lucky you! dark here
10:36 am

Oh well, I had hoped for something more sensational, harpjane.
10:36 am
Haz1558

Unless you put the words in deliberately?
10:36 am
Haz1558

THAT would put a different complexion on things. Troll tendencies, very worrying.

hurshy

i came home for lunch today, which i don't usually do, and some guy came to the door offering to clean one of our floors for free if we'd then tell people they did a good job. and he had handed me a flier but when i said i didn't really want to have them clean a floor today he took the flier back. well i thought that was odd because wouldn't you still want people to have your info so they could call you if they did want to pay for your services at some point?
11:54 am
Sally-catlover

Yes hurshy, you would. You should contact the police.
11:55 am
sciencegeek

sounds scammy to me
11:55 am
hurshy

so i called the condo management company and asked if they knew anything about this and said that the guy had mentioned someone in the complex whose floor they were cleaning and she said that the name mentioned was on the board of directors so i said, do you think we could ask him if he's having a floor cleaned, cause i don't want to call the police on them if they're really just carpet cleaners.
11:56 am
hurshy

and she called the person in question and it was true, but she was going to do something about it anyway bc the company isn't supposed to go around like that, it's against the condo association rules.
11:57 am
Sally-catlover

Good. After all, it's easy to find the name of one of the directors - and you might be reluctant to call them, as you were.
11:57 am
hurshy

i mean i feel like on the one hand, i did the sensible thing, but on the other hand, feel bad for suspecting a perfectly nice fellow with poor business sense.
11:57 am
Sally-catlover

He should have left you the flier with a phone contact on it.
11:58 am
hurshy

i should say so! my dad's a born salesman and would shake his head at such foolishness. :)
11:58 am
Sally-catlover

I will never buy online unless there is an address listed.
11:59 am

I would have asked the guy for three references and the name of his bonding company
11:59 am

it just occurred to me that it would have been a very easy way for people to come around and see who is home at what time of day and whatnot... sigh.
12:00 pm

i feel better knowing he's not a robber, though.
12:00 pm
Sally-catlover

Until you find the director has been robbed :-)
12:00 pm
hurshy

not but what you couldn't work for a carpet cleaning company AND be a robber...
12:02 pm

he did seem like a NICE guy, though, which means he would perhaps be better off running confidence schemes than surreptitious burgles, should he turn his hand to crime.

1:37 pm
dcseain

1:38 pm
jacq

1:38 pm

1:40 pm

1:40 pm

1:40 pm

1:40 pm

1:40 pm
dcseain

why is that, science?

ok be right back
1:41 pm
sciencegeek

i have only 4 in this class but they simply piss me off on a daily basis
1:42 pm
dcseain

ah, that type. I find biting sarcasm works with that type.
1:42 pm
Atalante

how old are they, science?
1:43 pm
sciencegeek

i am the queen of sarcasm. i have been known to reduce 17 year old boys to tears....
1:43 pm
Michnick

Hi all. Oh Science, I think I was my chem teacher's student from hell. Smart as I was I couldn't get my head around chem (or wasn't interested enough). He promised not to flunk me 1st semester, if I'd promise never to take his classes again! LOL!
1:43 pm
dcseain

i had a teacher pass me in CompSci once with the same condition, michncik :)
1:44 pm
Atalante

Throw baby explosives at them. Thats what our chem teacher did to us when we weren't listening
1:45 pm
Michnick

And look dc, we grew up anyway!
1:45 pm
dcseain

hm. firecrackers as attention-getting devices. interesting
1:45 pm
dcseain

quite so, michnick :D
1:45 pm
Atalante

he was an ex-industrial explosives chemist. it was great fun!
1:46 pm
dcseain

i doubt that would be looked on kindly here by administrators and parents. Though it could be fun to try.
1:46 pm
Michnick

Yay, I hit the half way mark.
1:47 pm
Michnick

I think teachers in our day got a way with a lot more than today. In some way they are too restricted, but on the other hand both sides are more protected.
1:48 pm
sciencegeek

they dont understand that the brain has to be exercised in order to move things from short to long term memory. So I give them new material and homework and they dont do the homework and come in the next day as dumb as they were the day before
1:48 pm
Atalante

oh yes. some of the stuff we did at school and uni would be banned now! one day at uni, we were given a nice blue liquid to inject into crabs. it was only till we'd played around for a while and injected it in labcoats and stuff that they bothered to tell us it was cyanide
1:48 pm
sciencegeek

My chem prof in college used to throw small explosives at us as we went down the hallway
1:48 pm
sciencegeek

ata oh my!
1:49 pm
Atalante

lol yep, science! sounds familiar
1:50 pm
sciencegeek

anyway, these are spoiled righ kids who think they dont have to do anything in life
1:50 pm
sciencegeek

rich
1:50 pm
Atalante

ugh, hate american spoiled rich kids
1:51 pm
sciencegeek

me too
1:51 pm
Atalante

(sorry, they are just worse when they are american!)
1:51 pm
sciencegeek

i agree.
1:51 pm
sciencegeek

i have lived abroad and know the difference
1:52 pm
Atalante

a good friend of a good friend is one. He drives me up the wall
1:52 pm
Michnick

It has something to do with entitlement, but I think it is much more prevelant today in almost any advanced (Western) country. The rich kids here in Israel, in certain areas are spoiled in a way that is beyond belief.
1:52 pm
Atalante

He wants to be a doctor, but assumes his parents will pay to get him a place in med school, and then to pass med school, and then to get him qualified without doing clinical years
1:53 pm
sciencegeek

sounds too familiar...
1:54 pm
sciencegeek

bunch of fricking losers. I worked my little low middle class a** off for me degree in premed with high honors and paid my own way through college. No one did me any favors.
1:55 pm
Atalante

I just hope he gets a short sharp shock. I don't want my drs of the future to bribe their way through school!
1:55 pm
dcseain

with yall. the HS i went to had two types, those that got hand-me-down cars at 16, and the ones that got beemers, mercedes, and porsches.
1:55 pm
sciencegeek

cannot afford to have stupid doctors
1:55 pm
sciencegeek

dc sounds like my hs. i attended HSPVA and I was poor white folk
1:56 pm
sciencegeek

the rest lived in the high end neighborhoods. at least everyone was friendly. it was the dark ages and people still did their homework and had pride in their grades
1:56 pm
dcseain

i attended TJHSST. I'm sure it was not dissimilar in some key ways.
1:56 pm
Atalante

really - how possible is it for someone's parents to "buy" their stupid kid's way through uni?
1:56 pm
sciencegeek

our whole country has become "entitlement" crazed!
1:57 pm
dcseain

yep, science.
1:57 pm
dcseain

and ata, yes it is
1:57 pm
Michnick

Sounds like my high school also. I lived in a 7 br house with a huge yard, had my own car (a 12 yr. old pontiac) and was considered LOWER middle, the other kids weren't even considered.
1:57 pm
sciencegeek

i dont know, but some of these rich folks are on the boards of the colleges......and rub elbows with donors......
1:57 pm
dcseain

easier than you'd think ith enough money, ata
1:57 pm
Michnick

I don't know what schools you guys are referring to, I went to public school.
1:57 pm
sciencegeek

true dc
1:57 pm
sciencegeek

i went to public school. i teach at a private, entitled school lol
1:58 pm
Atalante

*sigh* you'd hope doctors would have to actual have brains
1:58 pm
dcseain

oh, science, that's worse
1:58 pm
Michnick

You may think I'm crazy but the reason I loved the Harry Potter series so much is because it so well depicted real life, including the obnoxious spoiled rich boy whose dad 'knows' everyone.
1:58 pm
sciencegeek

no not really. some of them take 4 or more attempts to pass their medical boards
1:59 pm
sciencegeek

i could not get in because i was put in the alternate list. i should have applied out of state, but did not want to leave my kids who lived with the ex at the time. so here i am teaching these little sh*ts
1:59 pm
sciencegeek

oh yes, malfoy! love to hate him
1:59 pm
Michnick

That's so hard science.
2:00 pm

it is disgusting
2:00 pm

Back to Babble, I am having the hardest time with the e's today.
2:02 pm
sciencegeek

i am so sorry i would NEVER take on that assignment
2:03 pm
Atalante

I've never taught below undergrad level, and am very glad of it!
2:03 pm
Hawkins

well, at least it has been quiet and not many drop ins. which allows me to catch up on paper work from my morning assignment of special ed. Transition students (18-21)
2:03 pm
sciencegeek

geez
2:04 pm
sciencegeek

most of those kids will end up in prison one day. my experience with resource (adaptive behavior) is that the public ed tells them their disability is ok, but in real life it is illegal to act the way they do
2:05 pm
Hawkins

I typically work with students who are severely cognitively delayed. I worked with students with behavior problems last year. most were in a day treatment situation.
2:06 pm
Hawkins

Some of my previous students are in community college working toward a mechanics certificate
2:06 pm

hello everyone
4:50 pm

I grew up in Western Mass, where we called them rotaries....
4:50 pm
dcseain

the one by MGH
4:50 pm
nrkii

and my mom's friend called them rotoraries
4:50 pm
Wolvie

many many more than that, although they are getting rid of them. TG
4:50 pm
gortmold

are roundabouts a bit of an oddity in the us? here we're just one roundabout after another, interspersed with the occasional bit of road
4:50 pm
dcseain

Western MA is much nicer than Boston
4:50 pm
Wolvie

that is the name in Ma, yep
4:50 pm
Wolvie

hi Reese
4:50 pm
nrkii

not the bit I grew up in, dc :)

4:51 pm
Wolvie

where did you grow up nrkii
4:51 pm
nrkii

Springfield
4:51 pm
dcseain

they're an oddity in most of US, gort. around DC and in Massachusetts and in Ohio, there are a good many.
4:51 pm
Wolvie

gort - they are not common off of the ea** coast
4:51 pm
dcseain

ah, yes. We have friends in Palmer.
4:51 pm
dcseain

my friend's mom is from Chicopee
4:51 pm

4:51 pm
nrkii

my mom worked in chicopee (as did I) for years
4:51 pm
dcseain

true that about NJ
4:51 pm
Wolvie

ah. I lived in Mass for 17 years, moving back north, either Ma, Pa, or Md
4:52 pm
Atalante

there's one in Astoria OR LOL. It traumatises all the locals.
4:52 pm
Wolvie

as well it should ata
4:52 pm
nrkii

I definitely prefer jug handles to rotaries/roundabouts... less confusion and merging needed
4:52 pm
Atalante

LOL yeah, it means they have to know how to drive
4:53 pm
Wolvie

in Mass, it was a big game as to who could ignore what they were supposed to be doing and get where they wanted first. lol
4:53 pm
Atalante

they are utterly essential over here
4:54 pm
Wolvie

driving aid. :-)
4:54 pm
nrkii

wolvie, where in MA were you?
4:54 pm
dcseain

Maryland now uses rotaries at many highway interchanges instead of clover leaves and traffic lights
4:55 pm
nrkii

seain, don't tell your friend I said this, but Chicopee is a good place to be FROM
4:55 pm
Wolvie

EEEK dc. ;-0

4:55 pm
dcseain

4:56 pm
Wolvie

north shore first nrkii, then in Uxbridge. I just about bought a home with 10 acres in sept in W Brookfield, but the inspection fell thru
4:56 pm
dcseain

no, nrkii, a cloveleaf is a highway interchange with 4 loops connecting the two roads, no lights
4:56 pm
Reese\'s

whats a jughandle then? lol
4:56 pm
nrkii

ugh, so she still has to go back some times??? in Springfield these days, you have to keep your windows up and your doors locked and try not to drive through at night
4:57 pm
Wolvie

really? wow
4:58 pm
nrkii

Okay, in one hour I am going to our town's school board meeting because I volunteered to fill an open spot on the board and I have to be interviewed. Ack!

A jug handle is a half loop on the right side of the road, that you have to take to make a left or a u-turn. It's used on divided highways (where there's a barrier in the middle to prevent random left turns and u turns)
4:59 pm
nrkii

it makes traffic go quickly, because you're not constantly having to stop for someone turning left
4:59 pm
Reese\'s

ah
4:59 pm
Wolvie

Mass needs those on the north shore on rte 1 - big time
5:00 pm
nrkii

yes, I'd agree Wolvie... they're tough to figure out if you're not familiar with them, but the difference in traffic flow is really good
5:00 pm
gortmold

5:01 pm
Wolvie

I like jug handles - makes life easier
5:01 pm

5:13 pm
Wolvie

it's a cute time waster
5:14 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

wolvie, sure, okay. can i find you of facebook as wolvie (she asked, expecting the answer no)
5:14 pm
gortmold

you email lickety and ask him to send you babble expert which allows you to have the clues juxtaposed (showing off there) with the grid
5:15 pm
nrkii

I just right click on the Lickety link and select open in a new window
5:15 pm
Wolvie

you mean lickety's? I just pulled it onto my desktop, and open it to do side by side Kap. I restrict myself to not opening it until 3/4th's done tho. ;-) self torture
5:15 pm
nrkii

then I move the edge of the lickety box till it is narrow enough to fit along side
5:15 pm
nrkii

Wolvie, I restrict to 90%, except when I can't, like today, then I go for 80%
5:15 pm
Wolvie

yes - we did a whole babble email go round - but you can find me under Sue Duff, Raleigh NC. :-)
5:16 pm
gortmold

the neat thing about babble expert is you can send words you've got from the grid, to the clues, so you can see what you've got and what you need, without coping and pasting
5:16 pm
Wolvie

that's what i do to lickety's on sizing too nrkii
5:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I have 86 words left- but I could use the help
5:16 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

okay, wolvie, i'm friending you now (or whatever you call it) TX

Wolvie

i don't copy and paste gort - i just type into lickety's
5:17 pm
Wolvie

I have the re7 from the clues - just wondering why Kap is re7 instead of the word, since it's not in the puzzle -- too close to PB?

No, it's 4 the birds. Still can't find where to put that vowel in the austrailian wingless bird- am running out of options. Driving me crazy.

D-uh
6:23 pm
Kaplan the Magne

At least someone other than me revealed the answer- I am learning the etiquette
6:24 pm
jillibus

Uh-oh -- another HUGE icon! Luwanda, please see my bio for an easy way to resize. Huge icons gum up the chog and make it all jerky
6:24 pm
LuwandaHL

i thought i reduced it. sorry
6:26 pm
Kaplan the Magne

At this point I need to print out the clues because I can't see anything more. I have 2353 points. Is that bad?
6:27 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

kaplan, that's good, and way more than me
6:28 pm
jillibus

Kap -- I asked before -- are you not using Lickety and entering the words there?
6:29 pm
Kaplan the Magne

No- I have to print it out to see it because it doesn't fit my screen together with the grid
6:29 pm
jillibus

oh -- you have to change your resolution
6:29 pm
Kaplan the Magne

You mean you enter the words on the lickety page? Let me check that out again
6:30 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

i used to copy the clue list to word processor and erase them when I found them. printing it out sounds reasonable, as long as you don't mind the paper/toner consumption
6:30 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Too technical, even for a person in massachusetts.
6:30 pm
Book Doctor Gwen

um, what does that have to do with it? LOL
6:30 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I wasn't born here. Thanks folks for all your help.

Kap, what are you doing in MA?
6:31 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Just living.
6:31 pm
wht

Or Kaplan.
6:31 pm
jillibus

Very simple, kap -- use the Bulk Add, described at the bottom. Then you'll see where your missing words are. Then you can enter them at the top of the list as well as in your Add Word
6:32 pm
jillibus

when you find tham and they go to the right place.
6:32 pm
KrisE

Something must have brought you to MA. Nobody comes for the cost of living, except from San Francisco
6:32 pm
welki

ahhhh, kap. what i do is make the game window a little narrower and make the lickety list very narrow, so that they both fit on the screen side by side. do you know how to do that?

no kidding!
8:33 pm
Pinikula

Wal-Mart is close, too
8:33 pm
meliae

yeah safeway prices are just plain crazy
8:34 pm
Pinikula

and their club cards are worthless...
8:34 pm
meliae

yes, Wal mart is under 2.00 as well I think actually like 1.97
8:34 pm
72 Temple Owl

i was afraid of this...would have been better to not eat at all than eat this late. now i am hungry. i was not hungry before i began to eat.
8:34 pm
Pinikula

when I need bulk stuff, I'll still go somewhere else where the price for 2 is equivalent to safeway's 1
8:34 pm
meliae

yep yu used to get good deals with the cards now its a joke
8:35 pm
redturtlehead

Hi all, the milk thing. it depends on where you are. In Penna, it was like 1.65 but here in Florida, its 3.00 or more....
8:35 pm
Pinikula

yeah, I gave up the "privilege" of having club cards...definitely not worth it anymore
8:36 pm

hi red

Hi TO.

hi red!

hb ;)
8:39 pm
72 Temple Owl

i think fla has high food prices. i know this area does. in PA competition is fierce so prices are lower
8:39 pm
Pinikula

I don't think we have much competition here...you shop at the yuppy stores or you shop were you can afford... ;)
8:40 pm
Pinikula

(if that made sense)
8:40 pm
redturtlehead

Publix is very expensive, but Super target or gasp...walmart is ok, excepting the milk.
8:42 pm
72 Temple Owl

walmart is only as low as they have to be and in this area is not always the lowest for hba. nor food.
8:42 pm
Pinikula

I've never seen a Super-Target...
8:43 pm
Pinikula

the Wal-Marts here compete with Winco...Safeway, Albertsons, Market of Choice...well, they're the yuppy clubs ;)
8:44 pm
72 Temple Owl

AND you are stuck with the brand they carry, not the widest range
8:44 pm
Pinikula

there are definitely instances of that...
8:45 pm
Pinikula

...and there are somethings I don't skimp on like Kellogg's Pop Tarts!!!
8:45 pm
meliae

Market of choice has a like an totally awesome sell of one or two items but you must only buy those as everything else is super marked up
8:46 pm
Pinikula

and I think the store near campus rapes your wallet...can't believe it's that way especially so close to campus...poor students.
8:46 pm
