4:54 am
Haz1558

We have magpies around here but so far they haven't joined in the feeding frenzy at the back, they seem to leave the smaller birds alone, thankfully.
4:55 am

5:01 am
mummy

Good, will look out for him! se if I can get mre answers right than he does!
5:01 am
Haz1558

It was a brief affair between Valerie and Peter, although you still have to wonder what on earth Biddy Baxter would have said if she had known.
5:02 am
Sally-catlover

Why, did shefancy Peter herself?
5:02 am
Haz1558

Other presenters, Caron Keating, Yvette Fielding. Another man, Peter somebody now chief Scout.

5:02 am
FMitch

Fred the tortoise.
5:02 am
Haz1558

No, but Biddy Baxter was apparently an absolute tyrant and hard to work for.
5:02 am
Atalante

was willow the siamese?
5:03 am
Sally-catlover

Adjusts glasses. Read that as "Fired the tortoise"
5:03 am
Haz1558

No, the cat was called Willow. The Siamese was something else. I'll have to think.
5:03 am
mummy

Peter Duncan, hes not cheif scout any more I think its now Bear Grylls
5:03 am

Haz1558

5:04 am
Sally-catlover

Have you ever seen the utube spoof of Blue Peter?
5:04 am
lizmac

You could well do, mummy. I had to give him a crash course on Beatrix Potter after the team failed to answer a question about Jemima Puddleduck. Maybe that's a reflection of poor mothering that he wasn't au fait with her!!
5:04 am
Haz1558

Okay, Wilow was a cat, though not Siamese, the Siamese cat was Jason.

5:14 am
Haz1558

So, it wasn't deliberate? He hadn't taken a dislike to you?
5:14 am
FMitch

I was just overawed to see it was him!
5:14 am
Haz1558

Yes, but you've had a sore foot ever since, haven't you? And you find it hard to trust people in book shops?
5:14 am
caitlyn

Atalante

5:23 am
Sally-catlover

Someone in another place suggested that if I couldn't get in to the shops, I might be willing to ski, snowshoe or
hike to them. Er, six miles! Ad I'm a pensioner!
5:23 am
Atalante

I could have done with snowshoes taking pup out earlier
5:24 am
Sally-catlover

Also I'm terrified of even stepping out of the back door in this. Can just see me strapping on the skis!
5:24 am
Haz1558

Did you ever get proper shoes, Ata?
5:24 am
caitlyn

I am the same Sally, there is no way I am risking it
5:24 am
KatieMcG

best to stay inside sally you don't want to be taking chances with falling over etc
5:25 am
Haz1558

No, stay where you are, Sally, dealing with snow is fine if you're used to it, if you're not, safety comes first.
5:25 am
Atalante

not yet *sigh* I couldnt' find any I liked in Canterbury, and then we got snowed in
5:26 am
caitlyn

Ata are you enjoying your *rest* Have you heard from hubby?
5:26 am

5:27 am
KatieMcG

gosh i'm finding this grid hard today
5:27 am
Atalante

5:27 am
Atalante

8:46 am
hurshy

you know i'm realizing that there really is something to this six degrees of separation thing. and a lot of it is because of hollywood. you mix all these people up for every film and TV show and if you're connected to one you're connected to them all, and that can then connect you with whatever ordinary people they know...
8:47 am
herinfernallady

HI Hurshy
8:48 am
herinfernallady

Hurshy what do you mean?
8:50 am
hurshy

for instance, i was in a psych class with a girl who went on to be on the show "ed". she acted in the show with justin long, the guy who's the mac in the mac commercials. he was in a movie with jennifer aniston, the break-up. she was married to brad pitt. that's four degrees from me to brad pitt!
8:50 am
herinfernallady

Right Ok I get you sorry
8:51 am
hurshy

furthermore, john hodgman is the pc in those commercials, and is on the daily show, so i'm connected to everyone on the daily show that way.
8:51 am
herinfernallady

So you are saying that I am friends with this guy Gab that is in the music bus under his uncle so there for I am 3 degrees seperated from some famous types?
8:52 am
hurshy

and once you have aniston and pitt, well, who aren't you connected to? kevin bacon, naturally, but like, zillions of famous people. brad pitt in ocean's movies with clooney, 5 degrees from me to george clooney.
8:52 am
ladycece920

and five degrees to george clooney since brad was in the oceans 11, 12 & 13 movies!
8:52 am
hurshy

you'd have to actually make the connections herin, but, could be. :)
8:53 am
herinfernallady

Well I can but year
8:53 am
hurshy

plus, i just discovered that justin long's father is one of five tenured professors at fairfield university, and i know one of the other five. so i can go to hollywood and back again via two different routes.
8:55 am
hurshy

and since brad pitt is now with angelina jolie, that's five to her, and therefore six to every single poor person she's met in africa and asia etc.
8:55 am
herinfernallady

FOr instance. I am friends with Mel who has a cousin that is went to school with Kurt from Glee. Is that what you mean?
8:55 am
hurshy

there ya go, herin
8:55 am
LuvWordGames

They had a show on TV a few years back where an ordinary person tried to connect to another random ordinary person using that six degree theory and amazingly enough they usually could. It was really interesting
8:56 am
hurshy

it's kinda freaky. but i'm not sure it would be possible without all the mixing, both romantic and professional, of hollywood.
8:57 am
Uneaixoise

went to school with Kurt from Glee?? I LOVE him!!
8:58 am
hurshy

oh, plus, since i met tom brokaw, i'm connected to everybody he's ever interviewed.

i'm two freakin degrees from every president, foreign leader, etc that tom brokaw has met. TWO!
8:59 am
Uneaixoise

hmmm, well, a family friend in my hometown dated Roy Scheider :-)
9:00 am
hurshy

and since he knows all the other newspeople, i'm connected to anybody he might have missed but that they've interviewed by 3 degrees.
9:00 am
herinfernallady

assez bien cross, bravo
9:24 am

Crossy's good. :-)
9:24 am
Uneaixoise

hego, isn't it amazing how those latin basics allow you to get the gist in all those languages?
9:24 am
oodleberry

that's why spanish is easy on the job because they are all from romance language
9:24 am
oodleberry

boy that didn't come out right
9:24 am

It helps with Babble
9:25 am
Uneaixoise

exactly, oodle -- that's why I can't speak Spanish but can understand a lot of written Spanish
9:25 am

Reading is the easiest part for me and speaking the hardest.
9:26 am
Uneaixoise

i think that's true with everyone . . .
9:27 am
oodleberry

hego you might pick spoken spanish up quicker than spoken french because of the accent. although written can be tricky with no subjects which forces you to learn the conjugations of the verbs
9:27 am
oodleberry

really?
9:28 am
hego

Well Oodle, I learned the grammar in school and it's the same in all the romance languages.
9:28 am
oodleberry

I think you need to practice with someone with cards... so you see it and know how it sounds from a native speaker

2:31 pm
Haz1558

Oh, good for you, FM, nice to listen to stuff you enjoy.
2:31 pm

2:31 pm
FMitch

Ata jsut know so much about everything!
2:32 pm
Haz1558

We tend to talk about the moss here and people can rent pieces of land to cut peat/turf for burning.

Bye, mummy, see you again.
2:34 pm
Gail

I know somebody named Peter Marsh...
2:35 pm
Haz1558

They predicted a barbecue summer and a mild winter. Only slightly short of the mark. No4/4 extensive use of sarcastic font.
2:35 pm
FMitch

I doubt it Haz.
2:35 pm
FMitch

Most of my icicles have melted today!
2:35 pm
Atalante

the Met Office always get the forecast wrong for Faversham
2:36 pm
Haz1558

There's a definite thaw here as well. The only drawback is that the wind is getting up.
2:37 pm
Atalante

*groans* why did I set my Daleks in a huge white tiled vault?
2:37 pm
FMitch

What will we manage to talk about once the weather has gone *grin*
2:37 pm
Haz1558

I know. We've always found it hard in the past to find anything to chat about in the log, haven't we?
2:37 pm
FMitch

cos you have a great eye Ata and will work it out.
2:38 pm
FMitch

incredible isn't it that we have managed to chat for 4 years or so.

silverclaw is the artistic one. she sits on my paintings while I'm trying to do them
2:40 pm

sh7/32 - three letters for a female, two letters for neither male nor female, finish with what you get if you lie out in the sun/what they do to cow-hide to make leather.
2:40 pm
FMitch

if it's white do you have to colour it?

2:42 pm
Haz1558

The third te6/18 is a plural for Pavarotti and co.
2:42 pm
Atalante

that was my thought when I blithely shoved half a picture of them in. Now I'm realising it takes rather a while!
2:42 pm
Haz1558

The one following the canvas dwelling adds a couple of vowels to the end.
2:42 pm

2:44 pm

Was wondering how Lori and Uni are doing must send then an email.

Stone tablets

loool especially not a big one
2:58 pm
Haz1558

If the first th6 ends in a vowel, the second ends in a plural consonant.
2:58 pm
Atalante

Haz, they are graphic things - you use a "pen" on them, and what you do with the pen translates to the computer screen
2:59 pm
sciencegeek

But, Ata, I am only cleaning up photos not making art~
2:59 pm
Haz1558

Ah! Probably expensive and only really justifiable for semi-professional use, I suppose?

4:30 pm

th8 - there are two. If you have th7, make the ending into a number for one, then make the th7 plural.
