1:32 am
anike

I've spent half the day looking for a house on Phillip Island for World Supers at end of February - they jack the prices up for that time and its hard when on a budget
1:33 am
grannyrose

oh, yeah. and they will probably have to do the same tomorrow, there is only one case in the AM, and 2 in the PM
1:33 am
VolleymomDee

that is how I feel when we try to go to the Outer Banks in the states anike... frustrating, especially when it was no where near that expensive the first year we went
1:34 am
grannyrose

anike, try just off the island, instead of right on it.
1:34 am
VolleymomDee

granny are you a surgical nurse then?
1:34 am
grannyrose

does it need to be a house, or just some where to rest your weary head?
1:35 am
grannyrose

yes, dee. i work in the recovery room.
1:36 am
VolleymomDee

didn't realize that... great job!
1:36 am
anike

We don't really have any choice but to hire a house near Cowes - we have to be able to park the trailer for 1st and last nights and the family like to be close to night life - all the riders tend to gather and socialise - and we have to be at track early each day
1:36 am
grannyrose

anike, try the caravan parks, there are usually some on-site vans which you can rent.
1:37 am
anike

We have 4-7 people usually and need 2 bathrooms for quick exit in mornings - can't have the rider getting himself frustrated can we?
1:37 am
VolleymomDee

going to lickety with 48 left... totally stalled
1:38 am
grannyrose

the on-site vans are like small houses, and you could park the trailer there. there are usually multiple showers as well
1:38 am
jillibus

I have 48 found, dee -- just the opposite of you, lol!
1:38 am
flosey

1:39 am
flosey

ty jilli, am really enjoying him
1:40 am
anike

We have done the caravan park thing in the past but after driving across country its nice to be comfortable before we head back - we will exhaust all options but will probably end up back at the house we have used a few times - in Silverleaves
1:40 am
jillibus

dee, I have the noews on TV and have popped in and out of the kitchen -- that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it
1:40 am
jillibus

flosey, your hubby said you weren't there at bridge because you were in love with a younger man.
1:40 am
grannyrose

wish i could help you more, anike
1:40 am

and hubby doesn't mind at all
1:41 am
jillibus

he didn't seem to, lol!
1:42 am
flosey

lol
1:42 am
anike

The thing that irks me most is that the 1st nite we need is the last day of the high season and they want $400 for that one night so hubby and I will probably find a motel off the island for that night
1:42 am
flosey

so tired
1:42 am
flosey

poof
1:43 am
VolleymomDee

that is frustrating anike

Hello :)
3:40 am
Haz1558

I'll bet that no-one took a sillier phone call than I did on Christmas Day. We had the emergency line from the vets, at 10 pm I took a phone call from a young woman concerned that her dog was limping and could it be seen. 'How long has the dog been limping?' I asked. 'A week.'
3:41 am
Atalante

omg. *rolls eyes*
3:42 am

Hello Haz. Stunning, how stupid some people can be .

So Mr Haz rushed out

I bet no-one's husband made a sillier complaint than mine though!
3:42 am
rubyfoo

??
3:42 am
Haz1558

The other one, on Boxing Day morning, was a lady with a mastiff who wouldn't get out of bed and who was licking his lips. I almost asked her to check to see that all members of the household were still present and correct. It sounded to me like the mastiff had polished someone off.
3:42 am
lynxxx

at 10 pm too! hi Haz
3:42 am
elder

with club ... to address the issue with the person.
3:42 am
Atalante

Dad made him a fab cooked breakfast, and husband complained that it was more towards lunchtime than brekfast time, so the meal was inappropriate
3:43 am
Atalante

licking his lips? turkey? christmas decorations?

that's charming of him! let him make his own food!! at appropriate times!
3:43 am
Haz1558

Hello, lynxxx. People can be remarkably thoughtless. I told her that a dog limping for a week didn't constitute an emergency. She probably thought I was hard-hearted, but I mean...

3:49 am
hurshy

what wouldn't i give to have haz for a mother!
3:50 am
Haz1558

elder, it was such a worry, and I'm not the worrying type. She was trying to get from Edinburgh, Easyjet washed their hands of it, the airport closed, seats booked with Flybe, but would the weather improve? Thankfully it was the younger one who was flying, she tends to take things more in her stride than the older who panics a bit.
3:50 am
Haz1558

No, ruby, babble is my major vice.

vice? this is a vice?
3:52 am

we all want Haz as a mom

Haz1558

Oh Ata, if I were in charge, there'd be a lot better behaviour in supermarkets. There are days when I want to shake the parents, never mind the children.
3:53 am
elder

Haz, how ever old and wise they become we learn very quickly the meaning of having children and the unconditional part.
3:53 am
Atalante

agreed!
3:54 am
Haz1558

It's very funny seeing children realise that you're not completely stupid and that you just might be right occasionally.
3:54 am

um..
3:55 am

I suppose I should make some comment about this being a more decent size of grid than yesterday's offering.
3:58 am
elder

I was nearly speechless the other day.. A female, riding a horse walking along the road and texting on her mobile.
3:58 am
Haz1558

I was amused that mkg really liked the small grid and made a note to Dr-G to give us more of the same.
3:58 am
elder

Bye Ruby.
3:58 am
Atalante

did you ever hear back from the licking lips mastiff and the limping dog>
3:58 am
hurshy

ugh, 30 words, tooooo small
3:58 am
Atalante

lol really?
3:59 am
Haz1558

Licking lips mastiff was passed on to the next vet coming on duty, limping dog was also passed on to next day for a phone call and an appointment.
4:00 am
Atalante

so glad the Christmas vet emergencies of Ballymena got sorted out eventually *sarcastic font*
4:00 am
Andree

Hi everyone
4:00 am
Haz1558

Other calls included an unwell JR puppy (admitted for a drip), sheep lambing, sheep prolapsing. Not too bad, considering.
4:01 am
Atalante

lambing already? wow
4:01 am
elder

Hello Andree.
4:01 am
Haz1558

Hello, Andree.
4:01 am
hurshy

sheep! a great word.
4:01 am
Atalante

poor little JRT
4:01 am
Haz1558

Yes, some pedigree breeds start lambing at Christmas and the rest come in stages. Final lambings won't happen until the end of April.
4:02 am
lynxxx

gah! not only am I missing a heap of letters on my keyboard, but now I can't click with my left mouse
4:02 am
Atalante

didn't know that! which breeds lamb early? *tests Haz knowledge of sheep husbandry*
4:02 am
lynxxx

hi Andree
4:02 am
Andree

Haz did your daughter arrive?
4:03 am
Haz1558

Dorsets lamb twice a year and I think it's Suffolks who start in December.
4:03 am
Haz1558

Yes, Andree, thankfully all went smoothly on Thursday. I was so relieved, as you can imagine.
4:03 am
Atalante

wow. no idea there was such variation. all our down here lamb in March or so. but they are just normal boring sheep
4:03 am
Andree

lots have seen my icon but lynxxx and haz you must look. it is quite bizzare
4:03 am
hurshy

*disliking not being at home with ready supply of cheerios to quell insomnia hunger*
4:04 am
Atalante

what are the special breeds used for? showing / eating?
4:04 am
Andree

I am glad to hear that ,I bet it didn
4:04 am
hurshy

different qualities of wool i bet
4:04 am
Andree

did not matter what day you ended up having Christmas dinner
4:05 am
hurshy

merinos have skin with deep wrinkles, making it harder to shear the wool, but it is of a finer quality than the ordinary cotswold variety
4:05 am
Haz1558

Good question, Ata. I think some of the farmers just like something that looks different. Is it Cheviots that are orange? They look more special than your normal blackface.
4:05 am
Atalante

http://www.cheviotsheep.org/ - yep!
4:06 am
Atalante

apparently cheviots are used for quality lamb
4:07 am
Haz1558

Lovely pic of Hugo and possum, Andree!
4:08 am
Haz1558

There you go, quality lamb. I knew there had to be a reason for having lambs at odd times of the year.
4:08 am
Andree

i have never heard of a possum and dog playing together
4:08 am
Haz1558

We don't have possums so even a picture of a possum alone is ra4/4 for us.
4:10 am
Atalante

The small 'primitive' breeds generally do not become ready as lamb until their second year. The meat is dark, closely textured and lean and tastes like a cross between lamb and venison. Cook it slowly in a slightly cooler oven than the recipe states or marinate it first.

All the breeds have slightly different eating qualities and you can try different breeds at different times of the year.

Rare breeds are farmed non-intensively and you can buy named, pure-bred, rare breeds from speciality butchers, over the internet using specialist meat mail-order companies and from farmers' markets. Rare breed meat costs a little more than commercial lamb, but many chefs and gourmets agree that the difference will be noticeable in the extra flavour which is worth paying extra for.
4:10 am
Atalante

so says the BBC
4:11 am
Andree

be thankful you don't have them haz, they eat my tomatoes and beans, real pests and ofcourse you can see how helpful hugo is in ridding me of these pests
4:11 am
Haz1558

One of Mr Haz's partners and his wife breed Dorset sheep. He's been a traitor to his father who always had Suffolks.
4:12 am
Andree

most self respecting dogs would not allow a possum in ther territory
4:12 am
Haz1558

Yes, Hugo seems to lack the killer instinct.
4:12 am
Haz1558

I wonder what Spangle and Hobbit would do?
4:12 am
Atalante

he's a fierce predator alright!
4:12 am
Atalante

Hobbit would chase it up th nearest tree
4:13 am
Andree

I am sure hobbit and spangle would do the right thing and chase them away
4:13 am
Haz1558

I think so.
4:14 am

4:16 am
Atalante

ardal o'hanlon!
4:16 am
Haz1558

Hooray! Ata wins the prize.
4:18 am
Atalante

Dougal: I'm not surprised Ted. If I was a sheep. I'd be watching my back right now.

Ted: Why?

Dougal: Because of the beast. They say it's as big as four cats, and it's got a retractable leg so as it can leap up at you better and you know what Ted, it lights up at night, and it's got four ears. Two of them are for listening and the other two are kind of back-up ears, and it's claws are as big as cups and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps and Mrs. Doyle was tellin' me that it's got magnets on it's tail so's if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you, and instead of a mouth it's got four arses.
4:19 am
Haz1558

That sounds like a fearsome beast indeed!
4:19 am
Atalante

(it was a sheep with christmas lights on)
4:19 am
Haz1558

Worse than a possum again.
4:20 am
Haz1558

Just think, if you'd incorporated fairy lights into Hobbit's Christmas decor, rumours might have gone around the countryside of a light up hound.
4:21 am

it could have migrated to Ballymena

Uneaixoise

5:09 am
Atalante

I did mention that fact earlier on , Haz. You can't have been paying attention
5:09 am
Haz1558

Sorry. I'll vow to do better in future.

Happy Birthday Une. You share your birthday with my daughter. She turns 18 today!

happy birthday Unea! Yet another Sag. I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago. Yikes!
5:10 am
Haz1558

Happy 18th to the daughter. She's all grown-up and responsible, and now you can relax, Soodle.

Oh, we've slipped over the line ....didn't realize. 18 and 60....what incredible poles of life
5:11 am
Atalante

hows Merrrrrrp?
5:11 am
Soodlebum

Yeah right, Haz! She is just going to keep doing what she has been doing for the past two years - only now shes doing it legally!!!
5:11 am
Uneaixoise

my daughter had to go back to Michigan yesterday but before she left she made me a delicious and beautiful cranberry tart!! :-)
5:12 am
Uneaixoise

better than a bday cake! :-)
5:12 am

Happy birthday Une and Soodles daughter . I must away for a while. bye for now.
5:12 am
Haz1558

I'm telling you, Soodle, any minute now she'll be telling you that you've been right all along about every aspect of life. It'll be very satisfying.
5:12 am
Soodlebum

I keep getting flashbacks to this day 18 years ago - Ouch!
5:13 am
Haz1558

Bye, elder, nice to see you.
5:13 am
Atalante

Am I overdue for telling my mother that?
5:13 am
Soodlebum

Haz, You will be the first to know when she does that. Right after they revive me!!
5:13 am
Uneaixoise

tx elder!
5:13 am
Haz1558

Very overdue, Ata, I'd get it said verbally and backed up in writing.
5:13 am
Eva

Merp is is fabulous self. We are in Boston for the week, so we had the dreaded "get the cat in the carrier without causing massive PTSD to all concerned, but now that we're here he's happy. Sometimes, just for the fun of it, he feigns urinary stone emergencies on holidays just for the fun of having to pay a vet for a holiday visit, but he held off this year.
5:14 am
Atalante

awwwww :) *waves to merp*
5:14 am
Atalante

no limping or licking of lips?
5:14 am
Eva

gives the royal cat yawn back
5:15 am
lynxxx

lol Eva...but I am sure you exaggerate - or at least i hope so!\
5:15 am
Eva

The limping game seems to be more of a dog thing
5:15 am
Eva

No, that
5:15 am
Uneaixoise

and they do it well! LOL
5:16 am
Eva

That's how we spend our last New Year's Eve....in an ice storm. Barely made it back from the vet....several hundreds of dollars poorer and a totally healthy, shameless cat. Of course all cats are shameless. Hard to do shame without a frontal cortex
5:17 am
Atalante

or a dictionary to look it up in
5:17 am
Haz1558

Vets don't mind proper emergencies, it's the daft ones that make the eyes roll. Why would anybody wait until a Sunday morning to report that their hamster had been scratching for three months? I had to get out of the shower to answer that one, so the memory sticks....
5:17 am
Atalante

Silverclaw was particlarly shameless last night as she sidled under my duvet cover and proceeded to steal all my warmth
5:18 am
Eva

61 left and utterly stuck.
5:18 am
lynxxx

no, not me, I'm not laughing. Merp is utterly shameless - wretched creature
5:18 am
Atalante

O.O! you haven't mentioned that one before!
5:18 am
Eva

Doesn't Silverclaw give off warmth?
5:18 am
Haz1558

Did I not? It was hard to remain civil while dripping.
5:19 am
Soodlebum

Me too Eva - 61 left!
5:19 am
Jayk

There are other cats who do that? thank God! I just spent $800 on a cat who clearly just wanted several trips in the car and a few overnights
5:19 am
Atalante

vets are so so good with proper emergencies. I'll never forget the day Hobbit fell down the cliff, I just walked in with her and in literally a minute 3 vets and 2 vet nurses were at her side holding her paw and giving her painkilling injections
5:19 am
Atalante

I hope you uttered some choice words down the phone!
5:19 am
Atalante

no she doesn't, she too da4 small to give off much heat!
5:20 am
Eva

yes Jayk. To be fair, the other emergencies were real...but they ALWAYS, and I mean always, happen on holidays or weekend nights.
5:20 am
Haz1558

No, I was very polite and suggested that she make an appointment to have the hamster seen during normal surgery and that if she'd waited three months to do anything, another day wouldn't hurt.
5:20 am
Flask1

Morning all.......
5:20 am
Uneaixoise

morning, jayk and flask :-)
5:20 am
Atalante

that's just insane. people are quite mad
5:20 am

hi Flask
5:20 am
Haz1558

I've only ever got really cross once with a man who used to make fake emergency calls. I got to know his voice and finally lost patience with him.
5:21 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Flask.
5:21 am
Jayk

Eva--how do they know? I LOVE 'hard to do shame without a frontal cortex'!
5:21 am
Soodlebum

My brother is a GP & was on call the night of the millenium. He got a call from a woman whose husband was feeling unwell. When asked if he was a patient of my bro's practice, the reply was "Oh, no. But, we wouldn't dream of calling our own doctor on a night like this"....
5:21 am
Atalante

stupid!
5:21 am
Atalante

now *that* takes the biscuit!
5:22 am
Haz1558

A neighbouring practice uses an emergency service based in Belfast. If their patients don't want to drive to Belfast (30 miles away) they give them our number instead.
5:23 am
Eva

We have a major animal hospital a block away-not our usual vet,but available for utter emergencies. We once, when merp was a kitten we spent 4 hours in the emergency room because Merp was suddenly in extreme pain and writhing. We finally went home, because they had too many more urgent cases triaged, at which point Merp promptly threw up (on my bed of course) the entire insides of a catnip rat, which he has disemboweled and swallowed. He then felt just fine. Since then we have never left him unattended with toys.
5:24 am
Atalante

is your slogan "the vets that never sleep"
5:24 am
Haz1558

Our practice slogan is something like 'The vets your pets would choose.'
5:24 am
Atalante

Merp!!
5:25 am
Atalante

"and that don't mind being woken up at 2am to be told a cat yowled differently to normal"
5:25 am
Haz1558

Seriously, they don't mind turning out to something that needs to be seen, it's when you're used as a convenience 'I'm working tomorrow morning so maybe you should see the dog at 10 tonight' that it gets annoying.
5:26 am
Eva

IN Vermont the vet is a 20 minute drive over very icy roads. But, knock on wood, he has not had a urinary emergency (a real one that is) for 4 years now. The switch to raw diet seems to have made a lot of difference. And he gets cranberry pills and renal support supplements every morning before he gets his burshing treat.
5:26 am
Flask1

any chance of a clue for ar7/32 please?
5:26 am
Soodlebum

Those sort of folk should be charged accordingly, Haz!
5:26 am
Haz1558

We had one awful night where a woman's bitch was whelping and she thought she needed to tell us every time a pup was born. All through the night. The funny thing was that husband ended every call with 'Thanks for letting us know' instead of 'Will you for goodness sake give us peace?!'
5:27 am
Eva

unea and haz gave good clues for the ar6/8 abotu 15 minutes ago
5:27 am
Uneaixoise

aw, haz, how sweet!
5:27 am
Haz1558

ar7/32 - a plus moved swiftly in the manner of Sebastian Coe, first three letters of the downy duck.

5:27 am

5:27 am

how many pups were there in all?
5:28 am
Haz1558

Too many!
5:28 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, Flask.
5:28 am

it's the spider adjective without the c
5:28 am

araneid
5:28 am
Atalante

that's the one
5:28 am

that's it flask(-:
5:28 am
Haz1558

At one point the woman declared that she was feeling a bit woozy and I thought we were going to have to attend to her as well.
5:28 am
Haz1558

And then plural for ar8.
5:28 am
Eva

I guess they're all derived from Ariadne
5:28 am
Flask1

Haz...am soooooo sorry!
5:29 am
Haz1558

Don't worry, Flask, nobody noticed.
5:29 am
Atalante

do you ever get people asking for plasters / get fingers stitched up etc etc when they bring their animals in?
5:29 am
Eva

and how often do you get bitten/scratched?
5:30 am
Haz1558

No, but the vets tend to stitch each other up if necessary.
5:30 am
Eva

not ariadne. Arachne.
5:30 am
Atalante

I bet they do
5:30 am
Haz1558

Husband tends to get kicked by cattle, he can have nasty bruises sometimes.
5:31 am
Eva

I didn't realize that your husband was also a vet?
5:31 am
Atalante

ouch!
5:31 am
Haz1558

He was once bitten on the finger by a hamster, guinea pig or something, while doing evening surgery. Instinct made him flick it off, the animal bounced off and promptly died. He was mortified.
5:32 am
Atalante

oh NO!!
5:32 am
Nancy Boy

Looks like I came in at the wrong time. Omg!
5:32 am
Eva

what did he tell the owner?
5:32 am
Haz1558

Yes. And it was a family with children watching. Major mortification and apologies.

5:39 am

so funny to listen to the UK posts about snow. In Vermont generally there is snow on the ground from a bit before Thanksgiving through April. And it generally is about 3 feet or more deep by March. Just checked the weather at home and there's a windchill of -25
5:39 am

5:39 am

It bewilders me. When places like Texas get stymied bu snow that makes sense, because it's so unexpected, but you guys do realize that you live in a northern climate, right? Why isn't this just normal maintenance?

I tell you to be happy, and growing up doesn't need to be a part of that.
9:04 am

I even managed to tell her that he slagged off mum's husband, and she *still* thinks the sun shines out of his ass
9:05 am
Uniquity

Eva, get them to do a potluck or something! It's only the reception part I like anyway. I love the dancing and eating. Only the number of people you can reasonably talk to or see
9:05 am
car.eeyore

Ata, I honestly think it is an "age" thing. They grew up in the era where you got married once and that was it. You had to stick it out. And women definitely had a different "role" and "view" of their place in the marriage.
9:06 am
Atalante

ha! I just sent her back an email telling her I didn't need to grow up tyvm
9:06 am

Uniquity

The beau got home last night after his Christmas vaca at his parents and woke up after having a dream we had BBs again (I am still talking myself down about that one - just a dream, I hope) and Emma was staring down a mouse...we've had the odd one before, but he found an entrance route behind the stove. He is going to call the landlord and ask him to get the holes filled.
9:14 am
Uniquity

The mice bother me less than the dream about having bedbugs, since he doesn't react to them, we have to wait until I have been home for a week and see if I get itches again. Freaking me out.
9:15 am
Atalante

eeeeeep! hopefully just a courageous mouse
9:15 am

mighty mouse?

9:17 am
Atalante

you need to train up one of the teeny shed cats to track down bedbugs
9:17 am
Uniquity

I can live with mice, but the BB itching is maddening! I am trying to forget about it, since I can do nothing but wait and then sleep once I get home, I am trying to forget about it.
9:17 am
Atalante

and give it a few days, cos you're bound to feel itching now, psychosomatically
9:18 am
Uniquity

Tracking them down isn't hard, you just look at my poor body. Killing them is. took four poison sprays from the pros and a LOT of washing, etc last time.
9:18 am
Uniquity

I also have to wait a week of no itches, because they only feed once every few days. Emma actually goes nuts when she sees them, as she doess with all bugs, so she is a good watchcat.
9:19 am
Atalante

awwwwww
9:19 am
Atalante

she's a very good girl
9:20 am
Uniquity

She is a good girl. Slept with me all the nights she was home. My sweetie! I hate being afraid to go home though. One dream should not this paranoia induce!
9:20 am
Atalante

no, it shouldn't. but after last time, of course you're anxious
9:20 am
Uniquity

Wasn't even my stinking dream. I hope it was just his brain waking him up to catch the mouse, and not some subconscious awareness of tiny biting insects.
9:21 am
Uniquity

Four months of itching and washing and sprays and changing clothes all the time and worrying about spreading them. Anyway! Need to move on, can only react if it happens.
9:22 am
Atalante

tell him no to tell you these things in future, silly boy!
9:23 am

I shall. But that would break our recent "tell each other everything" rule.

Medieval se8s had a strange tale on the origin of the goose. It seems that on the hull of their ships grew this long, goose-shaped barnacle. coincidentally, there was also an Artic goose that migrated around England. Since this goose and the barnacle looked a lot alike, the sailors said that the goose originated from the barnacle, and in some tales from a seaside tree.
And as you can guess, because the goose came from a tree it was suddenly perfectly alright to eat on Fridays, for instance, since it was then considered a 'fruit' and not the 'flesh of animals'. By the 18th century, the goose was the customary Christmas dinner. The boar had been hunted to extinction, so it was no longer served. But many homes still served a string of sausages around the goose as a reminder of the boar in days past.

ata, i think you should get the best you can afford sized to your needs

ok, then I second FM. It is the steam that does the work, so if you can close the pan with the basket(s) in it, it will work perfectly.
1:15 pm

I agree with FM. We have two that fit on normal saucepan, and a separate one. Hardly ever use the normal one (but it does have two layers!)

have you read the help (button above this chat log) hadley
4:09 pm
dcseain

hadley, the grid below mirrors the grid above, and shows [how many words you've found]/[how many words start from that tile}
4:09 pm
dcseain

the help link above explains much, as does angelsong's babble page, link below
4:09 pm
hadleyloam

i read help, but couldn't find anything about tile stats
4:10 pm
dcseain

fa5 - one who fa4
4:10 pm
Uniquity

Hadley, the tile stats are pretty simple, really. The boxes under the grid represent the letters in the grid and tell you how many words begin from each time. They turn grey when you have found all the words. The word stats underneath your word list represent the number of 4,5,6,7 words (and so on). They also tell you how many you have found so far and turn grey when you have them.
4:10 pm
ChrissieDee

open lickety's babble clues link in friends of babble too
4:11 pm
Uniquity

Beyond this, we often ask for clues and talk about words as sa4,4 and things like this. The first two letters refer to the first two letters of the word we are looking for. The first number represents the number of letters in this word (in this case, 4) and the second number represents the points that the word is worth (again, 4 in this case).
4:11 pm
hadleyloam

i notice, though, there are two "n's" listed. do they stand for different length words?
4:12 pm

uniiiiiiii
4:12 pm
dcseain

no, just two Ns in the grid, hadley
4:12 pm
ChrissieDee

ty dc, think that is a 5/16 but have it now
4:12 pm
Uniquity

**begin from each tile. Sorry for the error. There are two Ns in this tile and each one begins a certain number of words. Words count as 'coming from' the first possible tiles, with each tile in the word needing to touch the next, unlike boggle.
4:12 pm
hadleyloam

OH! thanks, dcseain

4:39 pm
Atalante

I love it and Fi loves it and Ayla loves it
4:39 pm
Uniquity

Why was season three so short?? That's odd. I think I will love it, if I am ever home.

I have 102 left and am seriously thinking of giving up and crawling into bed.

It isn't such a bad grid. but I've had all day to whittle away at it.
4:40 pm
Atalante

it was a one episode per night week long special
4:40 pm
Atalante

any more than 5 episodes and everyone would have been traumatised beyond any repair. It was definitely - emotionally tired
4:40 pm

i have heard season three is fab and one can watch ieven if one has not seen the prior shows
4:40 pm

4:41 pm
Uniquity

British tv seasons make no sense to me. They seem a bit arbitrary sometimes. And short. I like 24 episode seasons :)
4:41 pm
Atalante

yes, but the more one knows about Jack, the more amazing season 3 is
4:41 pm
Uniquity

I remember your facebook updates during season three...

hm. i wonder if he chews cud.
4:48 pm

On the other hand, your average fashionable shoe for women is clearly designed to be an instrument of torment.

Actually I think it is the Devil's Grid and I say - Let him Have His Shoes!

Life is good, TO. A bit high stress and high stakes from time to time but I have come to the realization that 2009 was all about teaching me coping mechanisms. Yourself?
4:50 pm
rumplestiltskin

What's the icon for today. I need to change my 5 golden rings.
4:50 pm
Vicuna

Must be six geese a-laying, if the pattern continues.
4:50 pm
dcseain

after 5 rings comes 6 geese alaying
4:50 pm
redturtlehead

not sure but it might be the 6 maids a milking?
4:50 pm
Michnick

Well. Vic, That is one thing I noticed at this wedding. During the dancing there was a huge pile of ridiculous shoes and lots of lovely young ladies dancing in their stocking feet.
4:50 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I have 27 left- but I'm freezing to death. The heat can hardly keep up.
4:50 pm
redturtlehead

oh no, i have my song wrong.
4:50 pm
Uniquity

I only know the first five days. All a blur after that.
4:51 pm
rumplestiltskin

It should be 6 gees a-laying, but I don't see any icons for that.
4:51 pm
Vicuna

I confess I don't know why women tolerate them int he first place, but at least they had the sense to kick them off when it mattered! lol
4:51 pm
rumplestiltskin

Then 7 swans a-swimming.
4:51 pm
Uniquity

Taking off shoes to dance is heavenly...even when they are comfortable. I've always been a big fan of bare feet.
4:52 pm
Vicuna

I'm one chickadee a-chicking, I guess. =D
4:52 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Shouldn't endlap be a word- you know, the final part of a race? or endr***- to wrap in cloth? Where is the logic?
4:52 pm
Michnick

There were still a fwe totterers in the circle but most had gotten smart. My friend (the bride's mom) was brilliant, she had the cutest black suede crocs to match her gown!!
4:52 pm
72 Temple Owl

it has been very very interesting. and 2010 will be devoted to finding a mate. it's time.
4:52 pm
Vicuna

Yeah, but dancing in bare feet when others are still wearing the stilettos is very very dangerous!
4:53 pm
rumplestiltskin

8 maids a-milking, 9 ladies dancing, 10 lords a-leaping, 11 pipers piping, 12 drummers drumming
4:53 pm
Michnick

They should have had a circle of with and a circle of withouts.
4:53 pm
Uniquity

Sounds exciting, TO! I must confess I suck at the finding, and got lucky five and a half years ago when I met mine.
4:53 pm
Vicuna

That would be really funny, Michnick.
4:53 pm
dcseain

kaplan, there is no logice in ENABLE
4:54 pm
Vicuna

Good luck with that, TO, but don't fall into the trap of thinking that anyone is better than no one.
4:55 pm
Michnick

I cannot talk since I am married already 22 years, but those who know say that when you throw yourself into what really interests you, you meet people you like with similar interests.
4:55 pm
72 Temple Owl

i won't,vi. but you have to get out there they do not come to your door. at least they have not cone to mine.
4:56 pm

4:58 pm
Uniquity

middle sa5/12 is a plural, a multimplicity of sa** (beach stuff) if you will.
4:58 pm
Uniquity

Last sa4/5 is singular of final sa 5/12, the beginning of the sa7, a small fishy sa*****
4:58 pm

The Japanese women are very, very good. In fact they just had their National Championships and their #4 skater was so good it was a shame she was left offthe team. The most likely winner of the OGM is a Korean woman Yun-ah Kim

Tara quit after '98 O's and skated professionally for a while. She had a very bad hip, needed surgery and hasn't done much since
5:39 pm
redturtlehead

I really liked her, and I kind of liked that she did ehr thing and then exited the scene a bit...though I dont like her having a bad hip.
5:40 pm

She developed a bad hip from overpracticing. She was not well liked by the skating world. Really nasty skating mother
