Hi all and bye. I got my shots in my knees and can sleep for a change.
3:06 am

excellent rumple!

O.K. got those last two. Need any clues before I go?
3:07 am
rubyfoo

BTW, I'm a displaced New Yorker, too, looked up your profile....

Sally-catlover

Hi ruby, you still here?
4:11 am
rubyfoo

hi, I'm back, just tried to change my icon following pini's instructions -- still no success
4:12 am
rubyfoo

how are you, sally?\
4:12 am
Sally-catlover

Thought I was alone here. Was singing quietly to myself. This looks like an evil small grid.
4:12 am
rubyfoo

it is gorgeous and sunny here but VERY cold!
4:13 am
rubyfoo

I got half right away, now have 45 but I think that's probably it for me.
4:13 am
Sally-catlover

Quite mild for a change here, but a bit foggy.
4:13 am
rubyfoo

if I sang quietly to myself, I'd have to leave the room -- worst voice in the world, the only fans are the pups
4:13 am
Sally-catlover

I have only just started, so only have 19 so far!
4:14 am
rubyfoo

do you still have snow on the ground?
4:14 am
Sally-catlover

No snow now, though it was quite fierce on Friday and we couldn't go out on Saturday cos the road was sheet ice.
4:14 am
Sally-catlover

Imagine you have snow on the mountains.
4:15 am
rubyfoo

this place is extraordinarily beautiful, even the view from the house.
4:16 am
Sally-catlover

What made you move to France?
4:16 am
rubyfoo

lake, mountains, etc. but Spring is myt favorite - very long here and filled with flowers
4:16 am
Sally-catlover

I remember being in Austria in the spring and being totally amazed at the flowers.
4:17 am
rubyfoo

I always loved France, spent a lot of time here with first husband and later on my own (or with my son). When Burt and I talked of marriage and retirement, this seemed like a good choice as he was taking French lessons.
4:17 am
rubyfoo

And it would be a fresh start (he's been married a lot, previously).
4:18 am
rubyfoo

We used to sky in Austria when we first moved here, just 5 hrs away, but we've given it up for different reasons
4:18 am
Sally-catlover

Married a lot! lol. Sounds like a serial marrier
4:18 am
rubyfoo

bluebeard!
4:18 am
rubyfoo

that was ski* in Aus.
4:18 am
Sally-catlover

I guessed :-)
4:19 am
rubyfoo

hahah
4:19 am
Sally-catlover

I have never tried to ski, and too old and too fearful now.
4:19 am
Sally-catlover

Love to watch the beautiful people skiing though.
4:19 am
rubyfoo

he has 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and one great- , but is estranged from them all.
4:20 am
Sally-catlover

Ah, now the estrangement is very sad. My first husband has one son with me, and two children from second marriage, and doesn't have contact with them.
4:20 am
rubyfoo

I learned to ski in my 30's when I lived in upstate NY and wanted an activity I could share with my son. I was never very good, but really loved it until 2 of my middle-aged male neighbors had near-fatal accidents.
4:21 am
Sally-catlover

Have tried to get him together with my son but it hasn't been entirely successful. He's an idiot (ex-husband, not son), but there you go.
4:22 am
rubyfoo

I can't help him with it although I've tried. He is sentimental but (I think) cold in the middle, and very stubborn and exigient (are those th same word?). Un-fortunately, my son and his wife (in their 40's) have decided not to have children.
4:22 am
rubyfoo

men, especialy as they age, seem to close in on themselves
4:23 am
rubyfoo

and since his heart attack in September, he is very depressed and won't talk about it, but I know he is scared
4:23 am
Sally-catlover

Some men just don't have that feeling for family that I think women do, on the whole.
4:23 am
rubyfoo

where does your son live?
4:24 am
rubyfoo

and can't make new friends, not like us! lol
4:24 am
Sally-catlover

Your husband had a heart attack? Mine had a by-pass last April. It does change people mentally
4:24 am
rubyfoo

maybe it's because he's an only son. First husband was, too, and my son is.... It must be me!
4:25 am
rubyfoo

how old is your husband? Mine is 84 and I'm almost 67.
4:25 am
Sally-catlover

My son lives in London, about 4 hours on the train from here. He has a son himself now, will be 2 in March.
4:25 am
rubyfoo

he has an ongoing disease, atheromatosis (or something) in which he builds up plaque in his arteries.
4:26 am
rubyfoo

that is a perfect distance! My son lives in Texas
4:26 am
rubyfoo

he follows a very careful diet, takes anti-cholesterol meds, exercises, is very skinny, but the plaque build- up is relentless.
4:26 am
Sally-catlover

My husband is (counts on fingers) 75 this April, and I am (counts on even more fingers) 64.
4:27 am
rubyfoo

it takes 23 hours to get to Austin from here!
4:27 am
rubyfoo

April what? I'm the 17th
4:27 am
Sally-catlover

The heart surgeon told my husband (who had seriously blocked arteries) that it was genetic.
4:28 am
Sally-catlover

Tony's birthday is April 21st, and ouir wedding anniversary is April 19th.
4:28 am
rubyfoo

I think so as my husband's father died of a heart attac k at 54! He has already had two carotid stents, but we thought those blockages were discrete.
4:28 am
rubyfoo

aaah! My favorite month
4:29 am
Sally-catlover

His heart bypass has been totally successful and he has got over these emotional swings now, but he had pneumonia a month after the surgery, then after another month had a very serious fall which has left him partly disabled.
4:29 am
rubyfoo

I will take April pictures for you and send them (actually I may have some in facebook)
4:29 am
Sally-catlover

And Tony's father died at (I think) aged about 60, same reason. There is more they can do now.
4:30 am
rubyfoo

falling is the scariest, can be totally life-changing. We had an automobile accident (Burt fell asleep at the wheel) and the airbag deployed and fractured my sternum. I've not been the same, since
4:30 am
Sally-catlover

Would love to see April pictures. Not sure if we are friends on Facebook. Will go and look.
4:31 am
rubyfoo

me, too, we'll both do it. I hope you'll be able to see the photos. I look like I have a shrunken head but there is great picture of Max, my lovely autistic black boy dog, on my wall.
4:32 am
Sally-catlover

Oh that's dreadful, the accident. Assume that was in France. Tony's accident sounds quite mundane. He blacked out and fell across the bath, hit his head on the side and damaged his spinal cord so he lost the use of his hands and although he has partially regained that, not totally. Also has difficulty walking.
4:32 am
rubyfoo

but still, at 84, Burt is seeing the end and it makes him very scared (correctly) and depressed
4:33 am
Sally-catlover

I'm sure that's so, ruby. All you can do is be there for him but I know it's not easy. Really we have both had a dreadful year and the strain has told at times on both of us.
4:33 am
rubyfoo

we missed an oncoming car by about 3 seconds or I would have been dead. Unfortunately, although we were going slowly, as I am very small and somewhat frail, the airbag explosion was too powerful
4:34 am
Sally-catlover

If he fell asleep at the wheel, he probably has some deep guilt to content with as well.
4:35 am
Sally-catlover

Do you think anyone else is here? Imagine this silent audience all following our conversation with either interest or boredom!
4:35 am
rubyfoo

he had too much to drink at lunch, but denies it. It's almost two years since it happened
4:35 am
rubyfoo

and probably taking notes!!!
4:35 am
rubyfoo

OK, from now on, e-mails
4:35 am
Sally-catlover

Definitely would have some buried guilt then.
4:35 am
rubyfoo

nelliekelley50@yahoo.com
4:36 am
rubyfoo

now I have to make lunch but will "friend" you first. It is a great pleasure talking with you and I hope we'll continue!!
4:38 am

4:51 am

good morning everyone, having a sneaky look at Babble whilst at work lol
4:52 am
Atalante

LOL actually I only just came online, but I did read back!
4:52 am
Sally-catlover

Huh! Tshaw isn't a word. See it all the time in books. And hi Jean
4:53 am
Sally-catlover

I do love that pic of sily, Ata. Do you have a very special camera or are you just good at it?
4:54 am
Atalante

um .... how modest am I feeling today *ponders*
4:54 am
Atalante

both :D
4:55 am
Sally-catlover

lol. Digital camera or SLR?
4:55 am
Atalante

digital SLR
4:55 am
Sally-catlover

You have some great photos on FB
4:56 am
Atalante

I have an even nicer camera, a medium format film camera, but it's so expensive to use - film is expensive and processing is expensive. It's sad
4:56 am
lynxxx

Hello all. I'll admit I just came on too and read back - as I was just discussing the problems of aging today
4:57 am
Sally-catlover

Presumably companies that have traditionally made film have had some hard times recently with the advent of digital.
4:57 am
Sally-catlover

Hi lynxxx
4:57 am
jean1953

hello Lynxxx hope you are well :)
4:58 am
lynxxx

hi Jean, nice to see you again
4:58 am
Atalante

most have both digital and film products. the really high cameras like Mamiyas and Hasselblads even have digital bits you can add to a normal film camera (which I want to do with mine but its SO expensive to do)
4:59 am
jean1953

Thank you lynxxx I have sneaked in whilst at work lol :) so may have to check out rapidly hehehhe
5:00 am
Sally-catlover

I have decided that it really isn't fair to be brilliant at everything, so I stay as strictly amateur with photography :-))
5:01 am
jean1953

Oh good grief I am losing the will to live here, I have been on hold for 12 mins to a company and they wonder why I need babble lol
5:01 am
lynxxx

lol - better watch your smug crown Ata, I think Sally has her eyes on it
5:01 am
Sally-catlover

:-)
5:01 am
Atalante

I always keep thinking about going pro with photography, I keep coming back to it again and again, and then never have time or the energy or the willpower
5:02 am
Sally-catlover

You have my sympathy Jean. I hate all the menu systems, too, which mean that by the time you get through you are already in a rage!
5:03 am
jean1953

Lol I have hung up now Sally will have to try later, oh I am so with you I hate the menu systems who ever thought of them needs shooting lol
5:03 am
Sally-catlover

Ata, I know it isn't just the equipment. You really have the eye. My late b-in-l was semi-professional
5:03 am
lynxxx

When you write your local tourist guide books Ata, your photos will be a lovely accompaniment
5:03 am
Atalante

*smug crown firmly in place*
5:03 am
Sally-catlover

Perhaps I can just have a smug tiara?
5:04 am
Atalante

I do love taking photos. Love it. If I wasn't even more brilliant at every else, I'd take it more seriously :P

which is totally not helpful in this grid
11:15 am
jmcnrick

J is not useful
11:16 am
bojazz

would agree with that
11:16 am

nope. I think I need a new keyboard. It doesn't like double letters, especially E. Or even things like "ERE" - and I need those a lot!

I'm both flattered and amused that you could ever consider me 'strapping', Eva!
12:19 pm
EvaNadine

taking nothing other than the occasional ibuprofen. :)
12:19 pm
rubyfoo

and it's around 35F at this altitude (the cliffs are higher)
12:19 pm

there should be lots of cancellations in DC

I'll bet one could make big ones in the garden by sticking together moss and chicken wire as an armature and then planting grass sed
12:41 pm

12:44 pm

you play it with tiles sally? I have only played it on line... do you set up the tiles for your opponent or what
12:44 pm
rubyfoo

hi sally! Did you win? I used to have a Japanese friend and told him I was going to organize MahJong clubs in NY for Jewish grandmas and Japanese gentlemen. He found that very funny....
12:44 pm
hego

The tulips sound great. think positively.
12:44 pm
Sally-catlover

Yes, I won! First ever time. Really I'm just learning but it's a great game.
12:45 pm
Sally-catlover

You play with tiles oodle, it's not at all the same as the online one which is just matching pairs I think.
12:45 pm
BabbleRabble

do tulips generally do better than threelips?
12:45 pm
rubyfoo

the 2nd year here, I had more than 300 tulips planted in onr part of the garden, all shades of pink, salmon and violet but most disappeared after a couple of years
12:45 pm
Sally-catlover

We play in tables of four.
12:45 pm
rubyfoo

depends what you're doing, BR
12:46 pm
oodleberry

yes matching pairs... oh and people take turns? how do you set the tiles up??
12:46 pm
robbie09

lol BR
12:46 pm
Sally-catlover

Why did they disappear ruby? Do you have squirrels and did they eat the bulbs?
12:46 pm
rubyfoo

that sounds like fun, sally. I never learned it, probably because my mother didn't play. Just learned poker from her, lol, and scrabble
12:47 pm
Sally-catlover

Oodle, first you build a wall with four sides, two deep and eighteen tiles long each side. Then you take tiles in a certain sequence onto a board a bit like a scrabble board
12:47 pm
rubyfoo

we had voles in the garden at first, so the 2nd {tulip year@ there were only about 150, the 3rd about 80. From what was left, we have about 80 of the originals, plus what I've added in the interim. The voles are gone now
12:47 pm
Sally-catlover

Then you have to try to get sets. A set of three is a Pung, and a set of four is a Kong. A pair I think doesn't count as anything.
12:48 pm
robbie09

last year after someone cut off the flowers of all my tulips..the bulbs were not touched...weird.

I have that tent one, trying to monkey my last t here..../
1:14 pm

I think this was such a hard grid, but nice feeling of being done without any lists.
1:15 pm
Sally-catlover

Do you need any hunts?
1:15 pm
Trifioso

ha! got that ornery last t
1:15 pm
Trifioso

I agree sally. if you promise you wont' tell, I will reveal -- at the bottom of my profile I keep a little count of how many times I have gotten fireworks with out a the list
1:17 pm
Sally-catlover

I won't tell, and of course I haven't just had a peep at yoiur profile to check the number :-)
1:18 pm
Trifioso

:0 16. Not so big, but still...
1:19 pm
Sally-catlover

I don't have this puritanical streak that some Babblers have about the lists - I find it funny when they boast about it, but then ask for clues left right and centre in the chog. Some difference!
1:19 pm
Sally-catlover

It's a good idea to keep count though.
1:19 pm
Trifioso

indeed, sally. I do ask for hints now and then, but mostly I just steal them when others ask!
1:19 pm
Sally-catlover

Anyone need any clues before I go and eat?

Hello Babblers

hello scrabbler! and thanks sally, but I think I am set for now....

1:20 pm
Scrabbler

42 to go. I'll find some more before a walk in the sunshine.
1:20 pm
Sally-catlover

Gone then
1:23 pm
Trifioso

is it warm with you scrabbler, or just sunny?
1:24 pm
Scrabbler

30 F but quite sunny! I took the day off and have been cleaning--vacuuming bunnies' rooms.
1:24 pm
Trifioso

aren't ALL your rooms bunny rooms?
1:25 pm
Scrabbler

4 of the bedrooms = bunny rooms. LOL
1:27 pm
Scrabbler

Are you off today or on a break, Trif?
1:28 pm
Trifioso

neither scrabbler - was in this morning until 12:30, and now am home with sick child. fun! I should be cleaning, but I am being mad lazy. have only 5 left, so I am trying to get it done.
1:29 pm
Trifioso

in general terms, are you happy with new job?
1:30 pm
Scrabbler

Oh, yes! Partners = kind, supportive, relaxed, not workaholics and with intact egos. Toughest part = rural poverty and its effects on families/parenting/children. I want to adopt most of the kids.
1:32 pm
Trifioso

ok, this may sound like a weird one, but do you ever hug, high five, etc with the kids you see? We had a staff meeting today, and were basically read the riot act against any sort of contact with the kids. I get what they were saying, but it is SUCH a bummer. So many of these kids feel like complete losers, and could use a hug now and then.
1:33 pm
sallyds

Monkeying like mad but not getting the ge5.
1:33 pm
Trifioso

type of book, movie, etc. sallyds.
1:33 pm
Scrabbler

I am very big on pats/touches/hugs! I ask kids first if I may hug them. "Can I have a hug? You are such a sweet girl/boy?" Parents are in room except for adolescents.
1:34 pm
sallyds

Bless you Trif. Fireworks!
1:34 pm
Trifioso

yes, well, that is the issue right there- we are one on one with our students. :( I like hugs.....kind of hate that this is where we are now.
1:34 pm
Trifioso

huzzah for sally!
1:34 pm
Scrabbler

Last week I saw a depressed 17 yr old girl. At end of discussion I asked her if she wanted a hug. Now maybe I am placing myself at risk, but, yes, kids need support, hope, caring...
1:35 pm
Scrabbler

Yay Sally!
1:35 pm
Trifioso

I bet she loved that hug, scrabbler....
1:36 pm
Scrabbler

Poor girl--Dad left home 2 yrs ago for a man, announced he was gay, left Mom with 4 daughters, this is oldest girl--confused, angry, sad.
1:37 pm
Scrabbler

SO many kids are not getting their emotional needs met by their parents because the parents are emotionally needy.

yahoo trif!
1:38 pm
Scrabbler

I have 11 to go and I think I will just finish this out then go for a walk
1:38 pm
Trifioso

yes, scrabbler, I can see that already. most of the kids I see have really nice parents, who obviously care enough about them to bring them for extra academic support, but every now and then we do get a doozy. Last year a 16 year old was brought in by distraught parents. He got a B in English, and they lost their minds.
1:40 pm
Scrabbler

Yes, so many kids are expected to please their parents in every way--academics, sports, music. Parents cannot accept anything other than A student.
1:40 pm
Scrabbler

trophy kids
1:41 pm
Trifioso

tools come in all shapes and sizes, I guess
1:41 pm
SeaSpray

I have a question, do you then counsel the parents?
1:41 pm
Scrabbler

iv5 please?
1:42 pm
Scrabbler

I discuss strengths, weaknesses, gifts, talents, learning styles, etc with kids and parents.
1:43 pm
Scrabbler

There are all variations--parents that expect nothing and do not push their kids, and parents who expect A's only
1:44 pm
jessmom

My UPS driver has a greenhouse containing possibly the world's largest collection of iv5....
1:44 pm

do the parents who have those high expectations "get it"?

no fleas, no sickness
8:11 pm
rururocks

we use comfortis
8:11 pm
suefrad625

love who ever figured out the breakdown per size instead of having to buy the single tubes
8:11 pm
rururocks

Frontline is a good product though I hear.
8:11 pm
suefrad625

I wanted to try it but cant afford it
8:12 pm
Jacula

I assume you're all talking about pet medication now?
8:12 pm
suefrad625

lol
8:12 pm
suefrad625

yes jac
8:12 pm
Minveryork

I have heard of Frontline, but I use Advantax for dog
8:13 pm
rururocks

I use avantage on the kids...
8:13 pm
Jacula

Oh, yes, now I see. Frontline is the foremost flea, tick and lice, drop on the back of the neck stuff. I use that on the cat.
8:13 pm
suefrad625

is confortis a pill?
8:13 pm
rururocks

yes
8:13 pm
suefrad625

didnt work for me
8:14 pm
rururocks

lasts longer than advantage and frontline
8:14 pm
suefrad625

it was a lot easier then the drops
8:14 pm
suefrad625

I want to try the one that is like Frontline but kills all stages of flea
8:14 pm
Minveryork

I think that might be Advantax suefrad625, not sure.
8:15 pm
Jacula

Frontline last up to three momths if your cat isn't in the habit of going out in the rain and pushing through bushes not long after yyou've applied it.
8:15 pm
rururocks

does it come off in a bath.. we bathe our dogs every week
8:16 pm
Jacula

You have to be nice to your outside cat and allure it into wanting to stay for first night after application is made. It will then last for 3 months.
8:17 pm
Jacula

ruru - why do your bathe your dogs that often?
8:17 pm
redturtlehead

Comfortis is the best stuff ever for flea control.

rururocks

he is doing great.
8:19 pm
Minveryork

I've read you are supposed to bathe your dog once a month, so that is what I do.Sometimes I skip a month
8:19 pm
Jacula

Unless they are very muddy or have rolled and rubbed their necks in fox poo, there really is no reason to dry their skins out too much by bathing them more than once every 3-6 months. A rub down will normally suffice.
8:20 pm
Minveryork

If my dog gets muddy from dog park, I just rinse him.
8:20 pm
Jacula

Rinsing is fine, Min.
8:20 pm
72 Temple Owl

hi all! hi jacs!

Hi 72 Temple Owl! How are you? Welcome to the grid!
8:21 pm
redturtlehead

I bathe Teulu pretty much when he goes to the vet. Which is often. He got a bath in November, one in January, and one in February so far...
8:21 pm
redturtlehead

Hi TO
8:22 pm
72 Temple Owl

well it's been a long time jacs ;)
8:22 pm
72 Temple Owl

hi min hi red. just getting home from zumba. more fun than i have ever had at the gym.
8:23 pm
Jacula

You can't put moistiriser on a dog's skin. so you shouldn't shampoo a dog too often.
8:23 pm
redturtlehead

I'm glad you enjoyed it TO. My coach used to threaten me that I would have to take those classes if I misbehaved! I do not dance well1
8:23 pm
Jacula

It has TO! At least two weeks. How are you?
8:24 pm
72 Temple Owl

fine and you?
8:25 pm
sciencegeek

Evening. May i get a clue for the second re 6 please
8:25 pm
sciencegeek

oops nm i just got it
8:25 pm
Jacula

To be honest, you shouldn't shampoo yourself too often either! Rinsing down is fine, but don't use either natural ar chemical products too often, and only moisturise your skin using natura;l products.
8:25 pm
72 Temple Owl

lol i have lsot 7 lbs since christmas and you need some junk to latin dance!
8:26 pm
Jacula

TO - it's been a bit of a week, to be honest, but it ended well.
8:29 pm
Jacula

Dancing is probably the very best form of exercise, especially if it is done with pleasure amonst friends. (Whichis probably why mst teenagers are thin!)
8:30 pm
rururocks

our dogs live in the house and we keep them clean . We alternate with a soapless shampoo and keep the skin problems down that way.
8:31 pm
72 Temple Owl

sorrt to hear but glad week ended well.
8:31 pm
Jacula

They still don't need washing at mre than 3-monthly intervals, ruru.
8:31 pm
rururocks

I don't agree
8:32 pm
Jacula

Sorry you don't agree Ruru, but it's what I've learned over 50+ years and no harm has come to us.
8:33 pm
rururocks

Goldens and Labs have natural oils in their skin and bathing and water don't affect them like other breeds
8:33 pm
rururocks

doesn't I mean
8:33 pm

There are times when you have to be in tune with animals other than the primates that are us/

8:48 pm
Jacula

I just opened a bottle of champagne. Why? Because my Mum's still alive, despite the hospital prognosis she had a couple of days ago, and she's been here twice today, my daughter's still alive despite trying to starve herself to death some years ago, my son still wants to live with me, my parnter still loves me and his daughter, though flouncing off in a huff quite often, still returns 'home'.
8:49 pm
Jacula

\Partner said earlier tht he'd 'grrr' at me if I opened the last bottle of champagne. I've had a good famil based day and that deserves a celebration.

11:10 pm
Pinikula

we haven't even had any flakes! :(
11:11 pm

my OLDEST friend (in terms of frienship length -- though she is older than I am it's not by much) is getting hit with snow this year too -- Tidewater region of Virginia. really awful year.

11:15 pm
rbud
