we usually don't give clues for the first hour -- not a hard and fast rule, especially when the grid is small, but a courtesy for those that don't want clues during the first hour that has been practiced since I started playing 4-1/2 years ago
12:32 am
jillibus

oh please don't resurrect that "rule"
12:32 am
gremlinn

when I don't want clues, I usually just switch to one of the other two tabs
12:33 am
MLFAN17

jill the first hour rule?
12:33 am
Barb's Horses

It is just hard to know all the in's and out's when you are new like me.
12:33 am
flosey

of course grem, anyone can do that if they don't want clues
12:33 am
jillibus

exactly, grem -- you can switch off the chat if you don't want clues
12:33 am
flosey

MRP doesn't abide by that 'rule'

1:47 am
jillibus

flosey, are you there?
1:47 am
Douglas

It's my understanding that Eris was part of Ares's entourage (quite reasonable, actually)
1:49 am
flosey

yes, jilli, still plodding along
1:50 am
jillibus

do you watch CTV news, flosey? With Tamara doing the weather?
1:50 am
Douglas

Wanting there to be a word in the grid ending with "iome," but thinking there isn't one
1:50 am
jillibus

think you're right, doug
1:50 am
flosey

seldom do jilli - mainly because the tv is downstairs
1:51 am
jillibus

well, I think our weather girl is preggers again
1:51 am
flosey

I should get a small one for the office but it's pretty crowded now
1:51 am
flosey

ah, so she'll be off for a bit
1:52 am
jillibus

It's still St Pat's day here, so I had to try erin again, with the same negative result
1:52 am
flosey

hubby won't have one in the livingroom
1:52 am
flosey

lol
1:52 am
Douglas

What's wrong with a pregnant weather girl? Pregnancy is beautiful
1:53 am
flosey

yes it is, Douglas, as long as preg. lady is well and happy
1:53 am
jillibus

It's funny watching Tamara -- some time ago I thought she might be preggers but now I'm pretty sure, and she's being careful not to turn sideways when she shows the map etc
1:54 am
flosey

lol, that will get to be difficult
1:54 am
flosey

**that will become difficult
1:54 am
jillibus

nothing at all wrong with it, doug -- last time she stayed on until almost the last day
1:54 am
flosey

wow, good for her
1:54 am
jillibus

and she is a real beauty anyway
1:55 am
jillibus

2:06 am
flosey

2:06 am
jillibus

2:07 am
jillibus

nares are nostrils, so why isn't nare a word for one nostril?
2:08 am

Disappointed that pieman isn't in the dictionary...
2:12 am
Douglas

Neither eerie nor aerie are in the grid, but they look like they should be
2:12 am
jillibus

I've forgotten where you are, crossy -- courtenay?
2:12 am
crosshair

With you regarding pieman, omarr
2:18 am
omarr

I wonder what it is about mid-March that makes me want to Babble...
2:18 am
Douglas

Should amocide be a word for killing off love?
2:18 am
omarr

Douglas, can we petition to add it? ;)
2:19 am

2:20 am
Chopramen

I don't know what that is
2:20 am
Chopramen

sorry i'm nooby
2:21 am
Douglas

One of my longstanding beefs with Babble is the inflexibility of the dictionary, omarr
2:21 am
jillibus

it's a big help -- gives you the first 2 letters of each word, how long it is, and its point score. Just scroll down to Friends of Babble and look for Lickety's Babble Clues. Right-click to open it in a new window.
2:22 am
jillibus

doug, did you see my opinion of Enable?
2:22 am
crosshair

indeed douglas,if it is not american spelling,it is finicky colour,arbour,theatre etc and many more
2:23 am
jillibus

(scroll down in my profile)

2:24 am

Christine

Crosshair, are you the one who likes everything-bacon? vosgeschocolate.com has 'the Mini Bacon Candy Bar Library' (blending smoky bacon and rich chocolate) - $25 for 9 bars.
2:25 am
Douglas

Dr_God, the creator, has consistently mentioned that Babble, for better or for worse, is hard wired to Enable. In other words, the dictionary you have now is the dictionary you are going to have for the foreseeable future
2:25 am
crosshair

well could of been worse,dr_god could of been hawaiaan and we could be dealing with their words;)
2:26 am
crosshair

mmm,sounds delish christine
2:26 am
jillibus

we do, from time to time -- aloha, haole, pois...
2:26 am
jwr

what makes you think there are no Hawaiian words in Enable
2:26 am
omarr

Hawaiian wouldn't be so bad. They only have 13 letters.
2:26 am
jillibus

2:29 am
jillibus

Much better, uni :-D
2:30 am
gremlinn

7:39 am
Mom

high near 65 and sun here. No, I can't. There is one that I don't think I will post but since it is just you and me here (hopefully), it is using liquid Lysol for a feminine hygiene cleaning product
7:40 am
Anniebrook

Yes, I remember my m-i-l doing that...lol.
7:40 am
Mom

oh no. lol
7:41 am
Anniebrook

I had no idea what she was talking about to her friends but I know she didnt like it. So much for Lysol.
7:41 am
Judi

Good morning, all. Liquid lysol ... ouch.
7:41 am
Anniebrook

I was very young at the time.
7:42 am
Anniebrook

HI Judi..lol
7:42 am
Mom

wow. Gee, just think it is in a spray now. :)
7:42 am
Mom

Hi Judi
7:43 am
lideola

no, you can still buy a bottle of it. Or getting in cleaning clothes (which might be easier to use in this context).
7:43 am
Judi

I would think Listerine would have been more advisable.
7:43 am
Mom

Hi Lideola, that is true.
7:43 am
Anniebrook

Lysol is still around but not in that use.
7:44 am
Mom

Oh Judi, yes Listerine. I never could figure out why they wrapped it in paper.
7:44 am
Mom

I swear by Lysol for spraying around the house.

ty for the ec7/8
8:58 am
Haz1558

Although people always forget the rest of that saying, but since it involves talk of fools we'll not go there.
8:59 am
Haz1558

marf, the tile stats mirror the grid. If you look at the top left e, it means that there is one word beginning with e coming from that tile. The next letter along is s, you need to find 7 words beginning with s coming from that tile.
8:59 am
periwinkle

need to eat something, bbl
8:59 am

As you find words,the tile stats change to mirror your progress.

Good morning, Nef, enjoy the sunshine.
9:18 am
Nef

hurshy, that's horrible! Did the date move up or farther out?
9:19 am
marf

py6/30 and py6/33 - what does this mean?
9:19 am
Nef

I plan to, Haz. Except for the job of cleaning dog pooh from the back yard! :-P
9:19 am

farther out by a few weeks. it's not too bad except that it means we have to move the location.

9:20 am
marf

well rodents are mice guh!
9:21 am
Haz1558

Look at the word list - alongside your py word that you've got, you'll see the points value. The other py word is the same but ends in a vowel.
9:21 am
crosshair

bad marf..bad..to the pb
9:21 am
marf

pb?
9:21 am
Haz1558

And you've done it again! Please - it's kind of forgiven for new people but if you keep doing it, it gets annoying...
9:21 am
crosshair

just an imaginary penalty box we have for people who put grid words into the chat
9:21 am
Nef

hi marf. Has anyone told you about the help box up above this chat box yet? One of my favorite sites for newbies is under the tile stats grid you will find ""friends of Babble. On the bottom right of the list is AngleSnong's Babble Page. You should check it out
9:22 am
Haz1558

The words have points total based on the value of the letters. A four letter word is just the value of the letters. A five letter word is the value of the points multipled by 2 - six by three.
9:23 am
Haz1558

Just keep an eye on the words as they build up and you'll see how the scoring works.
9:23 am
marf

oh so YOU told the pt value, it isnt called out anywhere til you get the word
9:23 am
Nef

And the PB is imaginary and not a bad place at all. It has all sorts of nice things there; but we do remind people that we goof when they put words in the chat
9:24 am
marf

got it, like lame couch in Acrophobia! @______@
9:24 am
Haz1558

Many babblers use Lickety's list (see link at the bottom of the page). It gives points values and first two letters of the words.
9:24 am
crosshair

like our rodent friend is mi 4/6=4 letters,6 points
9:24 am
Nef

marf, you can also use Lickety's BabbleClues under the Friends of Babble list. Licketys list give the point value for the words
9:24 am
crosshair

we love lickety:)
9:25 am
marf

I got 71 words on my own so far
9:25 am
marf

any use Ace wordfinder?
9:26 am

many Babblers don't use Licketys list until they can't find anymore words

Hi all. Hope you're all having a nice day.
9:26 am
Haz1558

That's good - it's probably good if you get used to the game first and enjoy finding the words you know. Many new babblers get too obsessed with finishing before they have got properly used to the game.
9:26 am
crosshair

some make a game and try to get at least 50% of the words before they go to licketys list marf..some showoff do the whole thing while drinking their first coffee lol..i am not one of those

same here guernsey,we have a whole string of lighthouses all built in 1850-1855 and they were manned till the 50,s then the coast guard had them automated till around 1985 or so,now they sit empty:(
9:31 am

technology made them obsolete;(((
9:32 am

It's sad really, isn't it. i think lighthousekeeping appealed to very interesting people

hi Judi
9:35 am
crosshair

naw nef,technology killed then after the 80,s.why have a light when gps can tell you within a block where you are
9:35 am
Haz1558

I think they automated them just because they can. It probably saves money.
9:35 am
Judi

Oh, Crossy - you romantic mush.
9:35 am
crosshair

thats me judi,an ole romantic
9:36 am

Yeah, that's true too. But I do think that there are fewer and fewer people these days who are comfortable being alone with themselves too.

There are a few "original lighthouses left". Seek and ye shall find the rare Fresnel lens.

But leave out one of the vowels and you get another word, too.

rubyfoo

sorry
11:30 am

I'm not sure if he was downright sad, but he certainly looked more resigned than enthusiastic!
11:31 am

What, no cami? what will I wear under my sheer tops?
11:32 am

11:33 am
rubyfoo

how are you, hego? your promised spring has arrived and I've been gardening as much as I am able
11:33 am
Vicuna

I guess it ain't legal if it ain't got sole. ;)
11:33 am
hego

LOL
11:33 am
rubyfoo

sheer tops? what a horrible idea!
11:33 am
Atalante

I loved the alpaca lifejacket, but the poor thing looked so unimpressed every time it fell off! had to show you ..
11:33 am
hego

right, Vic
11:34 am
hego

It's okay if you have the cami, Ruby
11:34 am
rubyfoo

I have alpaca sweaters and hope that they just shear them to make them (like wool from sheep.....)
11:34 am
rubyfoo

NOT!
11:34 am
Vicuna

Thanks, Ata! It's important to have a hobby, and who's to say that teaching alpacas to surf is any less useful than Babbling...
11:34 am
pippingeek

frankly i don't understand the sheer tops thing - either wear a shirt that can stand on its own or don't wear it!
11:35 am
hego

I think they do Ruby.
11:35 am
Vicuna

Yes, they shear alpacas.
11:35 am
pippingeek

but my fashion sense is lacking according to those who "know"
11:35 am
rubyfoo

you should see the French fashion mags; they are horrible
11:35 am
rubyfoo

my fashion sense left when I hit 50!
11:35 am
hego

Pippin, I don't mean really sheer, I just like to make sure it's all well covered.
11:36 am
pippingeek

i'm only 35 but i never liked the sheer top thing
11:36 am
rubyfoo

a burqua for me wouldn't be such a bad thing
11:36 am
pippingeek

especially in the 90s when it was over the exposed bra - but that had more to do with my lack of endowment...
11:36 am
Vicuna

Therefore all your
11:36 am
rubyfoo

save everybody's eyes!
11:37 am
Vicuna

And since they shear alpacas, all your alpaca garments are shear. Ha ha.
11:37 am
rubyfoo

hahah
11:37 am
pippingeek

i was thinking that, vi
11:37 am
hego

ROFL Vic. YAY!

11:39 am
Vicuna

My daughter has been known to wear a plaid jumper (US meaning) over flowered turtleneck, with tie-dyed tights. That one was lively all right.
11:39 am
pippingeek

in the not so recent past!
11:40 am
rubyfoo

11:40 am
pippingeek

to cure a hangover ,pur a half a glass of beer,add tomato or clamato juice,a single raw egg and 3 drops of tobasco
2:43 pm
cybernan

the reason it and the hot choc works is because the high sugar content replaces sugar absorbed by the alcohol, the milk puts a lining on the stomach and I guess the aspirin takes away the pain ;)

I'm seriously considering my retirement option

the weather is gorgeous dorens.. i just got home a little bit ago. even this morning it was sun ny and warm
4:07 pm
JBV

do you have more than one certification?
4:07 pm
Dorens

i have very few options... looking into retirement right now, but i'm only 20 years
4:08 pm
Dorens

i have k - 8 teaching in addition to the counseling, that's worthless right now. everywhere is letting go... what kind of chance do i have against someone who's been teaching more recently... been a counselor for last twelve years
4:08 pm
ADHDWordLover

oh no dorens, just read about your job. my hubby's job has been on shaky ground for a year... he never knows from day to day if he'll have a job and it's getting tuffer as more and more are sent packin'
4:08 pm
JBV

i hope it works out for you - retiring with only 20 years means no health benefits right?
4:08 pm
Dorens

that's right
4:09 pm
Dorens

do you have 25?
4:09 pm
JBV

but can you bump within your own district?
4:09 pm
ADHDWordLover

problem for him is that he's not hireable at his age in his field. too close to retirement
4:09 pm
ADHDWordLover

and i'm disabled and can't work... we need his ins.
4:09 pm
JBV

yes 25 but I'm not yet 62, so my plan was to work at least one more year - now reconsidering
4:09 pm
ADHDWordLover

he's 20 yrs w/his company also
4:09 pm
Dorens

no, because i never taught in this district... started as a counselor.
4:09 pm

These times are difficult for everyone. Just sorry to hear of the mindless cutbacks.
4:10 pm
ADHDWordLover

are you financially able to retire now JB?
4:10 pm
JBV

happened to my brother-in-law -after 31 years at IBM, they "let him go" (sounds like releasing a fish back into the water) - he's only 55
4:10 pm
Dorens

j, everything i hear says retire now if you have the 25! they are looking to mess with the benefits of anyone who hasn't retiried previously
4:10 pm
JBV

yes, I guess so DoDo, my husband has been retired for 3 years, we still have two years left on our mortgage but it's manageable
4:10 pm
JBV

yes, I heard that too, doren -
4:11 pm
ADHDWordLover

oh dorens that sounds toooo familiar. one guy was so close after 22 yrs w/NASDAQ and they cut him loose just before retirement. he's not hireable and his wife has cancer and they cannot afford the cobra
4:11 pm
JBV

the worst is what it is going to do to our schools and classrooms - the cuts will be devastating
4:11 pm
Dorens

don't know if i should go outside and see if the nice weather can cheer me up... that is fairly doubtful though
4:11 pm
smooth_pappa

hi people! 46 left... let's see how quickly I can knock these off.
4:11 pm
Dorens

lots of districts are having to cut all nonessentials.... guidance, obviously, is necessary but not essential
4:12 pm
ADHDWordLover

just go out and take a nice breath of fresh air... slowly in through your nose and slowly out the mouth (very slowly is the key to relaxation)

4:24 pm
smooth_pappa

sure! a lot of pro nature photographers (like those who shoot for National geographic, and similar styles) will use film. The market is really dwindling. especially gven that every year digital makes advances on the benefits that film still holds, but it will be some time before film really dies out
4:24 pm
ADHDWordLover

tx nan. great clue
4:24 pm

i remember the time i had to run to beat the deadline to get all my rolls of 110 film done.they were discontinuing the processing of it at stores

good, cuz i want to sell my old stuff, not donate it.
4:25 pm

do you have the other ca 6/24?

Guidance counselors are needed more than ever now a days

Oh Dorens, I hate to hear that
5:43 pm
bojazz

amen! to the need Dorens
5:43 pm
Dorens

well, there's a chance... it isn't written in stone yet. but it is very likely... if they can't get the money, they do need to make cuts. this is just shameful.... all over the state of New Jersey

I hope they can find the money. I think it is the same just about everywhere

5:54 pm
stidmama

I agree doren -- and the thing of it is, from my perspective, is that qualified, experienced people like you, once out of the schools, are not likely to return. Leaving only people like me, new to the profession, to fill in the gaps when they start hiring again.
5:54 pm
stidmama

hey jmxc
5:54 pm
jmcnrick

*co**s up empty handed*
5:54 pm
stidmama

oops. jmC. *sigh* just got home, and it was a long day.
5:54 pm
stidmama

and as a beginner, I will NEED people like you to hold my hand and help me navigate things the first couple of years!
5:54 pm
jmcnrick

i kinds like jmxc seems kinda jolly
5:55 pm
Dorens

that is a big assumption stid, that they will start hiring again?
5:55 pm
jmcnrick

eventually dorens
5:55 pm
Dorens

well stid, you have my hand to hold, no problem. and i imagine people like me will volunteer if retired, to try to help out
5:55 pm
jmcnrick

recessions/depressions don't last forever
5:55 pm
stidmama

Within 2-5 years, they will doren, because with fewer staff/teachers, the class sizes and support groups will be too big to do the kinds of "quality" work they are mandating.
5:56 pm
Dorens

the governor of new jersey has a personal vendetta against public schools though
5:56 pm
stidmama

The public will begin to see the problems with "business" solutions for education.
5:57 pm
stidmama

that's too bad, doren. *bright look* you could move here! we have a year-round temperate (if wet) climate, and pretty scenery. And me, of course. *grin*
5:57 pm
Dorens

but if i retire (which i think i will be forced to do) then how do i reapply in 2-5 years when they decide they do need a guidance counselor? and how likely are they to hire a 60 + person when there are younger (=cheaper) folks around
5:57 pm
stidmama

but we don't have a princess phoebe...
5:57 pm
jmcnrick

oh stiddie
5:57 pm
Dorens

yes, but you fired your guidance counselor before nj did
5:57 pm

5:59 pm
stidmama

works for me, jmc. You need me to clear out a corner of the living room for you?
5:59 pm

Jacula

He does in summer, but not in winter. He's neutered, but you'd never know it by the way he roams and fights.
7:50 pm
Nef

well, at least he's neutered so he's not propgating litters all over
7:50 pm
Jacula

He's more likely hanging around to see if he can get a go at the lamb bone he knows I'll be putting out for the foxes.
7:51 pm

you feed the foxes?

ken does too. there's a beautiful fox who visits each morning... loves turkey carcass, etc

hey LBD! so... yesterday the creative writing lesson (8th grade) fell flat. Today (no surprise, 5 different classes) reviewing how to write a bibliography was not a huge hit. HOWEVER...
8:10 pm
Jacula

Hi stid. There are no naturists - it's too cold here in UK.
8:11 pm
stidmama

I did get some feedback that it was better and more useful information than the first time it was presented (by a different teacher, not Language Arts) earlier in the year.
8:11 pm
stidmama

so I survived, and learned a lot, and it was good. I am very very happy I am trying out this challenging age group this year.
8:11 pm
lbdawger

i'm not sure there's an "exciting" way to present bibliography!
8:11 pm
Jacula

Stid - I guess writing a bibliography is not the most exciting kind of writing, but your students do need to know how to do it.
8:12 pm
stidmama

too cold, Jac? but it's sunny and warm (ish)! LOL
8:12 pm
lbdawger

we've had sun, wind, rain, snow and just grey skies today.
8:13 pm
stidmama

yes, it was a necessary lesson. I think one thing that helped was explaining that I don't like writing bibliographies either, and then showing me the 27-item one I did for the paper last quarter! LOL (theirs only has to have three entries)
8:14 pm
