baking is a hobby, since I couldnt actually make a profit when it was a side business...I like giving product away I guess...it used to be relaxation, but then when stuff didn't turn out as I wanted and people got too picky I stopped...

where do you live, pav? I'm moving to your neighbourhood pronto!
12:56 am

nice gift Pav, does he want a career in food?
12:58 am
PAV3

I know he likes to eat!! and he's not astute when it comes to numbers, so this will help...a career, perhaps, we'll see...but it also unburdens mom and dad from all the food chores...and they live 35 miles away from me...I'm in sunny (!!) Phoenix and they're in the burbs...
12:59 am
PAV3

she cuts my hair for free, and he used to do my taxes...
1:00 am

what method do you use for the pot roast..oven, stove top or crock pot?
1:00 am
lynxxx

nice to share your talent
1:02 am
PAV3

my first was in the oven and now I use a crock pot...sharing when there's nothing else to give is an option most people don't do...it used to be bartering
1:02 am
westford

you know I think that will be coming back it's a good idea
1:03 am

for my pot roast a use a chuck roast, potatoes, carrots, celery and Lipton Onion soup mix...a just a bit of water...

Will I, as a computer illiterate, try to explain what I do and see if that helps? Give me five minutes to write down the step by step process. The rest of you adopt the lotus position and say OMMMMM to aid the thinking process.

3:46 am
rubyfoo

3 wks here for me and I love it. I've been playing scrabble, mostly blitz and have made some friends there, but there are a few very competitive creeps who spoil it
3:47 am
rubyfoo

and the chat in blitz is very short
3:47 am
rubyfoo

unfortunately, I am very poor at this compared to scrab

3:54 am
Haz1558

Ruby, here's my attempt to explain the step by step process to change your icon. You might want to make sure that you have the picture chosen. Also, write this down, so that you have the steps before you redirect yourself away from chat. Step 1 is to press the button labelled 'My Account. That brings up the Babble Player Profile, go to the left side, labelled Profile info. Under the little square for the icon, press 'Edit. This will bring up another screen, which gives you two options. Choose option 2 and press browse. This brings up a smaller screen ' Choose file to upload' At the bit that says 'look in' Find the file where your photo is stored (perhaps under My pictures). When you see the photo you want, click on it. This should bring a blue square around it and will place the file name in the file name box. Then press Open. The next step is to press Upload. This will bring up a red banner saying 'Buddy icon successfully uploaded. Now press refresh. This should return you to babble chat, hopefully with icon intact.
3:54 am

Haz1558

Yes, stand down from the omming, and anybody who adopted the lotus position can now unwind.
4:01 am
VolleymomDee

it might be; I know jili says that can be too big; she has a web address to shrink photos that might work
4:01 am
Karys

I'l try again if it wil help

4:04 am
Karys

Just the usual thing Haz, nothing spectacular here
4:04 am
Haz1558

We're skilled at knowing what people are saying, Karys, it comes of long years interpreting FM's contributions.
4:04 am
Brookie

hi fm
4:04 am
Atalante

yes, stop trying to shift blame, FM!
4:04 am
FMitch

oh great - it has started snowing again.

l getting on in this weather
4:07 am
Haz1558

Oh, Ata's the granddaughter of a genius, so she'll work it out, ruby.
4:08 am
rubyfoo

our snow tires sit in the garage, husband refuses to have them put on, he says there only for driving in the mountains!
4:08 am
Haz1558

We don't have the depth of snow that you've had in England, Karys, but it's proving difficult to negotiate country roads etc. I don't remember such a sustained icy spell.
4:08 am
FMitch

uumm Brighton is sw of me
4:09 am
Atalante

france is past brighton :P
4:09 am
Haz1558

ruby, husband is a country vet, so he has to do a lot of driving on untreated country roads and laneways. He got tired of having to either abandon the car and walk to the farms or having to be towed out.
4:09 am
FMitch

or is that s.e of me, yes it is.
4:09 am
Karys

We have got to that point now Haz, main roads arn't too bad but side roads and lanes are dreadful
4:09 am
Haz1558

Apparently, the tyres do make a difference.
4:10 am
rubyfoo

a little bit past lol
4:10 am
FMitch

lol I am now arguing with myself in a chat room
4:10 am
rubyfoo

big animal vet, haz? our vet comes to the house because one of the chows is autistic and he can't go off the property
4:10 am
Atalante

true sign of madness
4:10 am
PinnyPoppins

sorry - my fault - this is what happens when i think 'i'll just have a quick look at babble before i get up'
4:10 am
Haz1558

That's what happens when you get snowed in, FM! You pick fights with yourself.
4:11 am
Atalante

an autistic chow. goodness me!
4:11 am
FMitch

LOL!!!
4:11 am
Karys

What caused the move FM or is that not good to ask here ?
4:11 am
Haz1558

Yes, ruby, he specialises in large animal, especially dairy cattle, but works in a mixed general practice so occasionally does some evening small animal surgeries.
4:12 am
Atalante

do meat cattle get different vets?
4:12 am
FMitch

Death of partner and financial requirements Karys. But it was the best thing I hadve ever done, am now mortgage and debt free and happy.
4:12 am
Haz1558

Witness protection programme, Karys. Poor FM, she's had to up sticks. It's a wonder she's still able to use her babble name here. But tell no-one.
4:13 am
FMitch

LOL nice try HAz :)
4:13 am
rubyfoo

I give him prozac (learned from Temple Grandin book on autism) and it helps him a lot. He was totally weird and shy before, couldn't make eye contact, but now acts almost normal except afraid of his food bowl
4:13 am
Haz1558

No, meat cattle get the same vets.
4:13 am
Haz1558

We could make up all sorts of reasons for FM's move, couldn't we?
4:14 am
Karys

Good Heavens FM, I am sorry to hear about your loss, but I am a great believer in good coming from disaster.
4:14 am
Atalante

oh yes :D
4:14 am
FMitch

Haz and Ata you will still make up lots of lovely stories
4:15 am
rubyfoo

I hope you get the photo, ata
4:15 am

4:42 am
Atalante

gosh haz, you amaze me sometimes
4:43 am
Haz1558

I know. Some say I should make money out of my psychic abilities but I like to think of it as a gift to the world.

4:48 am
Atalante

do you get the choice? don't spirits just come and talk to you? you might end up with michael winner (when he's dead anyway)
4:48 am
Haz1558

I don't know - Michael Winner was on Celebrity Mastermind, don't know if he won.
4:49 am

Did you see the Horizon programme on the bond between dogs and owners - on BBC2 on Wednesday?

LOL ata

That particularly clever dog was AMAZING. A border collie, and German to boot.
4:51 am

border collie, there you go. very clever creatures

It could fetch toys just by being given the name. Toy zebra, fish, etc. Over 350 names remembered. It could also fetch toys from another room based on a picture!
4:53 am
Haz1558

Or, if it was shown a small version of a ball, on command it could go to another room to bring back the large version.

mom2han8

She used to "herd" my daughter when she was a baby and a toddler... incredibly cute!
4:53 am

best friend's 1/2 collie does that - not 350 of them though! He has rope toy and drill toy and vampire toy and bottle and and and
4:53 am

unbelievable

It did all this while riding a unicycle and spinning plates.

and reciting shakespeare?
4:54 am
mom2han8

LOL Haz... it's early yet and I almost believed you for a minute.
4:54 am
Haz1558

No, it was German, vast tracts of Goethe.
4:54 am
Atalante

goodness! even more impressive
4:54 am
mom2han8

There was a dog once that I saw on TV that could bark "To be or not to be"...
4:55 am
mom2han8

It was years ago, but I always remember it.
4:55 am
lynxxx

I love the dog on UTube that barks "I love you"
4:55 am
Haz1558

We had a dog on TV that could say 'Sausages' - less impressive than your one, mom2.
4:56 am
kje

but more valuable to the dog, i bet haz
4:56 am
Haz1558

I think so, kje.
4:56 am
mom2han8

Yes kje... far more valuable to the dog... that particular skill.
4:57 am
kje

down to 58 and hit a wall
4:57 am
mom2han8

My cat meows hello... swear to God.
4:57 am
Atalante

the sausages dog was soooo famous
4:57 am
Haz1558

I don't know why sausage advertisers didn't snap it up.
4:57 am

I believe you mom2
4:58 am
mom2han8

There is a brand of dog treat here called "Snausages"... surprised they never used that dog.
4:58 am

my sisters cat likes to stare at the computer screen... doesn't like the screensaver though so has learned to touch the mousepad to bring the usual screen back... weird cat
4:58 am
mom2han8

Cats are all kinds of smart.
4:58 am
Atalante

Scooby Snacks are Hobbit's favourite treats :)
4:58 am
Haz1558

They're still not as smart as this border collie.
4:59 am
mom2han8

I am happy mine does not have an opposable thumb...he could get into all kinds of mischief.
4:59 am
mom2han8

Sometimes my cat just comes and sits in front of me and does this blinking thing... swear he is trying to communicate something.
4:59 am
mom2han8

Probably not Haz
4:59 am
kje

this is the same cat that will only sleep on his back with all 4 paws in the air... I'll stick to my weird assessment
5:00 am
mom2han8

My cat also fetches.
5:00 am
mom2han8

Funny kje.
5:00 am
Haz1558

He's probably thinking 'If only I had opposable thumbs, I could be so useful to you.'
5:00 am
mom2han8

LOL Haz... I would teach him to do laundry.
5:00 am
Haz1558

Being a male cat he probably doesn't want to learn to knit, but give him power tools.....
5:01 am
mom2han8

I have a few pictures that need hanging..
5:01 am
mom2han8

Perhaps a prosthetic thumb?
5:01 am
Haz1558

There you go. He's a cat, he'll be able to climb.
5:01 am
mom2han8

And he would probably follow directions better than the humans in my household.
5:02 am
mom2han8

The possibilities are endless... lightbulb changing springs to mind.
5:02 am
kje

scorched fur also comes to mind for that one
5:03 am
Haz1558

Absolutely, although knowing the correct wattage would be a requirement that might tax the cat a bit.
5:03 am
mom2han8

LOL...
5:03 am
mom2han8

Well, Haz, clearly he would have to be supervised.
5:04 am
Haz1558

See, any job that has to be supervised, I always end up thinking that I might as well do it myself. I'm a poor delegator.
5:04 am
mom2han8

Of course on another note he still thinks his reflection in the mirror is another cat... so, his brilliance has limitations.
5:04 am
Atalante

just thinking that
5:05 am
Atalante

i think I'll just let Sily stick to sitting around and looking pretty
5:05 am
mom2han8

The funniest thing is when I hear my husband trying to reason with him... it is hysterical.
5:05 am
kje

that's OK, scrab thought her reflection was another shopper... and she is still useful
5:06 am
mom2han8

funny.
5:06 am
Haz1558

I don't think the border collie would ever make that mirror mistake. He's used to the mirror for perfecting his tap-dancing technique.
5:06 am
Atalante

that was hilarious. poor scrabs!
5:06 am
mom2han8

Of course the poor man tries to reason with our teenager also... God Bless him.
5:06 am
mom2han8

I don't know this story about Scrabs.
5:06 am
Haz1558

When did Scrabbler not know herself?
5:07 am
kje

I know ata - another shopper that looked amazingly like her, isn't that what she said - LOL
5:07 am
kje

the brain is funny sometimes
5:07 am
mom2han8

That's funny...
5:08 am
mom2han8

And, of course, this lookalike also chose the same outfit to wear to the store that day??? LMAO.
5:08 am
Atalante

yes lol
5:08 am
kje

she was shopping, turned a corner where there was an unexpected mirror, and just for a sec was shocked to see someone who looked so much like herself
5:09 am
mom2han8

that's great.
5:09 am
mom2han8

I would probably have apologized to the reflection for running into her, LOL.
5:09 am
Haz1558

My shock with mirrors is when I'm trying things on and the shop insists on giving you a back view mirror. That should be banned as being cruel.
5:09 am
kje

so.... your cat is in good company on that one
5:10 am
mom2han8

Yes he is!
5:10 am
mom2han8

OMG Haz... I swear I never try anything on at the store... I bring it home and then return it if I don't like it.
5:11 am
Haz1558

It's so much better doing it that way, mom, I agree. At least at home you can fool yourself a bit better.
5:12 am
kje

going back to sleep - catch you all on another morning when I wake up too early
5:12 am
mom2han8

Actually, just the opposite, sometimes I feel like the stores have "trick" mirrors, or some kind of flattering lighting, LOL... at home what you see is what you get... better assessment, I think.
5:12 am
mom2han8

Bye kje.
5:12 am
Haz1558

Bye, kje, enjoy some more sleep.
5:12 am
lynxxx

bye kje
5:13 am
mom2han8

Of course this does not work with bathing suits, which you cannot return.... and they are the absolute worst thing in the world to shop for!
5:13 am
Haz1558

I must be shopping in the wrong places. There is one shop that is flattering in the changing room mirror department but you pay more for the clothes!
5:13 am
EspritdJean

you can return them as long as you don't remove the "sanitary strip" from the crotch
5:14 am
mom2han8

You are paying for their trick mirror technology, LOL.
5:14 am
Haz1558

Exactly!
5:15 am
mom2han8

I look at it like this... I would not want to buy a "used" bathing suit, so I do not return them.
5:15 am
Haz1558

Hello Esprit.
5:15 am
EspritdJean

5:15 am

Lurker waving back! I'm at the neurological institute and cannot chat in a steady and sociable fashion, as eyes and things keep being delivered, but I am periodically looking at Babble...

Hi MG!!
5:35 am

Hello!
5:35 am
Scrabbler

How is little Walter progressing?
5:36 am
MonkeyGames

Great! He's been back at school this whole week, and is walking really well with or without the crutches. Usually no pain at bedtime these days too. And he's cheerful, if admittedly in a normal 5-year-old defiance phase.
5:37 am
MonkeyGames

Two more weeks until the next cast-free x-ray to see how the knitting's getting on and decide about a new cast.
5:37 am
mom2han8

Hi scrabbs
5:37 am
mom2han8

Sorry was just doing the morning 'wake up' routine.
5:37 am
Scrabbler

But it is also such a precious age! 3-6 yr olds are the best!!
5:38 am
Scrabbler

Hi mom2!
5:38 am
Scrabbler

Is it tough to get them conscious and out of bed, mom2?
5:38 am
mom2han8

Yes...
5:39 am
mom2han8

Though not too terrible... my 13 y ear old is better at it than my 49 year old, LOL.
5:39 am
MonkeyGames

I agree, although there is also a lot to be said for long scientific conversations with 7-year-olds. And anyway for Walter a defiant phase is about 2 episodes a day and not so bad by most kids' standards... Yes, I love this age.
5:39 am
Scrabbler

The middle-high school bus picks up kids here at 6:55.
5:39 am
kje

scrab, we discussed this morning how you and mom2's cat have something in common
5:39 am
mom2han8

that's early. how long is the ride to school.
5:40 am
mom2han8

There is something to be said for all ages/phases... both good and bad.
5:40 am
Scrabbler

Haha, mom2. I am so not a morning person and sometime shit the snooze button 3-4 times. Today I woke up at 6:03 and alrm was set for 6:30, so I have extra Babble time.
5:40 am
MonkeyGames

OK, must be very sporadic with chat now; the neuroscientists need their lunch cards.

Hi kje, and what is that?

OK... have fun Monkey.

5:41 am
Scrabbler

mom2, I live in a rural area with a huge geographical area for the school district--I think it is 45 min on the bus for kids up here.
5:41 am
mom2han8

I was up prior to the alarm this AM as well Scrabbs. In a few I have to go out and assess the shoveling.. I think we got about 2" today. I don't have to work, but I will make it easier on those who need to get out of here to do so.
5:41 am
Scrabbler

Hi ruby!
5:42 am
mom2han8

Yes... I went to a regional high school in a rural area and we were on the bus very early.
5:42 am
Scrabbler

Haha, kje, thinking about that experience still makes me both yelp and laugh.
5:42 am
rubyfoo

haz and ata were trying to help me this AM to get my icon pic up, but I finally sent a note to dre_god
5:42 am
kje

that was hilar, scrab
5:42 am
mom2han8

Yes... we were talking about you earlier... in a nice way, of course.
5:43 am
Scrabbler

Some icon work, some are not formatted to work
5:43 am
mom2han8

I was basically saying that my cat is very bright and yet he still insists on thinking that his reflection is another cat... I was told that he was in good company... LOL.
5:43 am
rubyfoo

makes me feel dumb, like this grid does!
5:43 am
mom2han8

I have never changed my icon.
5:43 am
rubyfoo

but ata put a chow chow pic on hers and it looks a lot like my ruby
5:43 am
Scrabbler

I can still relive that moment, rounding the corner, thinking that I was going to crash into this woman's cart, yelping, then seeing myself....silly life moment!
5:44 am
mom2han8

don't feel dumb... just push through.
5:44 am
mom2han8

Was your first reaction to apologize to "her"... that would have been my first reaction, LOL.
5:44 am
Scrabbler

I have 57 words
5:44 am
kje

grids are meant to make us feel dumb... they take special delight in it... I say kick it in the shins
5:45 am

My first reaction was to look around and find out if anyone witnessed my behavior!
5:45 am
rubyfoo

lol kje
5:45 am
mom2han8

I have 34... my goal is to finish today... have not finished a grid in a while... but I am not leaving the house today... much to do here... so I will babble on and off all day.
5:45 am
rubyfoo

have never finished a grid in about 3 wks of playing every day!
5:46 am
mom2han8

Well, its a good story.
5:46 am
rubyfoo

74 words today but that is close to it for me
5:46 am
mom2han8

I am sure I will have to use the list... I think I only finished one in about 3 years without the list.
5:46 am
mom2han8

And it was like 31 words, LOL.
5:46 am
Scrabbler

I play tennis from 9-10:30 (EST) then the 8 ladies will have a brunch at a friend's home. She lives on 13 acres and we will snowshoe and cross-country ski all afternoon, with breaks to eat, laugh and play Scrabble.
5:46 am

I don't know how to use the lists, another thing I don't know.....
5:47 am
mom2han8

Sounds like an awesome day!
5:47 am

Then I am on call tonight through Monday morning---aaaargh!
5:47 am

udon is not accepted by enable (neither is panini) - why does enable recongnize foreign currencies not even used in our vernacular, but not ethnic foods we eat all the time

My daughter and I were just talking about maybe doing some skiing in a couple of weeks. It's been a while and we both really enjoy it.

Downhill though... I was never much for the X-country.

french vanillia soy milk? ugh!
7:19 am
oodleberry

that's what a bucket of water does when it is that cold
7:19 am
mom2han8

I mix it with chocolate soy milk, add a dash of 1/2 and 1/2, pop it in the micro... that is what the girl drinks every AM.
7:19 am

uh when you pour it out real fast
7:20 am

It is actually quite tasty.
7:21 am
crosshair

lot of work for just a glass of milk lol
7:21 am
oodleberry

I got it and when I heated it up and tasted it, it tasted like beans... but somewhat satisfied my chocolate fix
7:21 am
crosshair

unless you have a lactose issue i suppose
7:21 am
mom2han8

not so bad, really. I don't have to squeeze the soy beans or anything...
7:21 am
oodleberry

it=chocolate soy milk
7:22 am
mom2han8

Yeah... heated up straight it is not so good... it needs to be mixed with something... so we discovered that adding the french vanilla and the 1/2 and 1/2 makes for a tasty beverage.
7:22 am
mom2han8

No lactose issues.. we just really like soy milk.
7:22 am
crosshair

id have to be rich to stock soy milk here anyways,ive seen it at 8 dollars for 2 quarts/litres
7:23 am
oodleberry

ok kewel that is nice to know 2han8

when I was there after 3 years I started wearing coats them because I was freezing ... when your body 'gets used' to the heat then it thins out and always wondered why people wore coats... when I had to have heat then I understood... it is logical when you are used to temps tween 60 - 90 degrees then all of a sudden it get below 50 and IT IS FAREEEEAINFG

Does anyone remember the comedian Sam Kineson? He had this routine about the Ethiopian famine... he was like, "someone is filming them... don't they have any food with them? Give them a sandwich!"... obviously the famine was not funny, but that routine was.
7:59 am

Well, he'd definitely be dead if he didn't always have his Gore-Tex wear, his knife and flint. I don't care how hungry I was. I would draw the line at eating skunk.

I am miffed. Work stidkid up at 6:20, thinking that he needed to get the bus at 7. Apparently I missed the line in the email that he needed to leave from schjool at 6:50 this morning (meaning we should have been up at 5:30...)
9:19 am
redturtlehead

Oh no Stid.
9:19 am

of course, he is the boy who is going to the debate tournament, I am not even driving this time.

back with a clue!
9:23 am
stidmama

but it's highly inconvenient, and HE should have reminded us and gotten himself up for this. Since he doesn't drive, and since there are no buses within 15 miles of our house, he needs to be on top of things.

had a major trauma today. my two hounds got out in october and were missing for two days. plastered the neighborhood with flyers, worried for two days and spent several thousand dollars at the vet for one that was hit by a car. today i got a voicemail message with the caller saying she saw my dogs on a very busy street near where i live. rushed home only to find them safe and sound in the back yard. guess she had an old flyer and saw a couple of dogs that looked like mine. much trauma! i'm now cuddling with 150 pounds of hound and drinking some wine.

Got to say, I definitely find it funnier now than I did when I was a kid. They do slip a lot in for the adults!

it's the temperature it feels like on your skin when the wind is blowing the cold air at you .. typically 5-15 degrees lower than the actual air temp
