from our local transit agency, regarding the subway: "Metro will enact a new 20ยข surcharge during peak-of-the-peak periods (weekdays 7:30 - 9 a.m. and 4:30 - 6 p.m., based on the starting time of the trip)."

oh doh!
12:38 am
dcseain

we already have a variable fare that ranges from 1'.95 to 4.95 each way depending on time of day. talk about confusing fare structure.
12:38 am
jillibus

ah, and I remember the nickel subway fare in NYC, dc!
12:39 am
flosey

we called our son as soon as we read it - his, and his wife's, offices are not right in the centre of it all
12:39 am
jillibus

I'm far from Toronto the Not-so-Good.
12:39 am
dcseain

fare here was 85 cents when i started riding in 1986.
12:39 am
dcseain

they are well, flosey?
12:39 am
flosey

but they're watching things very closely - son's especially
12:40 am
flosey

yes dc, thanks
12:40 am

got one!
12:40 am
joshuavorbis

i have many friends downtown and they have nothing good to say about the actions of the police today especially
12:40 am
jillibus

I have old friends who live there but I don't know if they are in the area concerned.
12:40 am
m9f9l

and the other
12:40 am
Jellen

nbt
12:40 am
flosey

it is very shocking - and scarey
12:40 am
joshuavorbis

one of my good friends lives a block away from the "zone" and he was detained this afternoon for being suspicious due to "walking in the rain" when in reality he was walking home from the store
12:41 am
m9f9l

one of our fave songs was inspired at the g summit in London.. band had room overlooking the police action
12:41 am
flosey

gosh, they have to be so careful
12:42 am
jillibus

are these creeps professional troublemakers?
12:42 am
dcseain

that scary, joshua
12:42 am
jillibus

josh, just what is the "zone"?
12:43 am
joshuavorbis

jilli - the area of the downtown core that was cordoned off and essentially shut down for the summit
12:43 am
joshuavorbis

without getting too provocative, here is (i think) a telling video that shows the attitudes of the police irrespective of the public - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Heb9BXj
YcII
12:43 am
flosey

what streets are involved josh?
12:44 am
jillibus

I know that -- I mean what streets are the boundaries? My friends are on Bloor, not far from the university
12:44 am
joshuavorbis

bloor is more or less away from the action, as far as i know
12:44 am
joshuavorbis

queen and spadina was the site of some of the worst confrontations
12:44 am
jillibus

that's good!
12:44 am
flosey

I take it this is more down Queen? and below?
12:44 am
m9f9l

I watched that on youtube.. kettling. looks scary!
12:45 am
joshuavorbis

seems like it's from maybe bay to spadina east/west, king to maybe dundas north/south
12:45 am
m9f9l

not the one linked here... I mean the one that inspired song
12:45 am
joshuavorbis

i honestly don't know though
12:45 am
flosey

ah, west of son's office then
12:46 am
jillibus

saw the link, josh -- that's awful.
12:47 am
joshuavorbis

the video really speaks for itself if you ask me
12:47 am
flosey

must look it up
12:47 am
jillibus

I'll be watching the news in a bit.
12:47 am

at the g20 in london apparently someone got killed by the police.. at least that's the story on the web..
12:51 am
flosey

really sad to see this in the Toronto I knew and loved - as I remember it from 20+ years ago
12:51 am
joshuavorbis

i find it hard to seriously consider the police's side of the story after seeing something like that
12:52 am
rururocks

some canadians are so barbaric..especially police
12:52 am
jillibus

what on earth was the police's story?
12:52 am
joshuavorbis

i haven't heard anything from them regarding whats in the video
12:53 am
joshuavorbis

both the ch7's are related, btw
12:53 am
joshuavorbis

one is past tense and the other is "more of" the ch5 preceding
12:53 am
jillibus

are the ch7s weird?
12:54 am
joshuavorbis

12:58 am

Wow, josh...sounds like an adventure!
12:58 am

Britain refused to forsake their pounds for the foreign eu4. Losing shillings was as far as we were prepared to go.
2:32 am

I still remember the TV jingles to prepare us for decimalisation 'Use your old coppers in sixpenny lots'

I spent a year in Birmingham in 1965. My mother reported I was quite helpful with shillings and pence at the time
2:33 am

Is your icon the moonlight walk Haz?
2:33 am
Haz1558

Shillings and pence were the reason we were whizzes on the 12 times tables.
2:33 am
Haz1558

Yes, I took it from the website. The rugby players are bringing up the rear.
2:33 am

Haz1558

The commentators were trying hard to be polite but you could see that they were struggling with their language.

And then, Fabio was interviewed and claimed they played well.
2:40 am
FMitch

well he is in a win win situation isn't he.
2:41 am
Douglas

You have my condolences. Did you catch the highlights of the USA-Ghana match?
2:41 am
Haz1558

I don't know whether it was his own struggle with the English language or whether he was just trying to be kind.
2:41 am
Haz1558

I saw a few snatches here and there, Douglas.
2:41 am
FMitch

Was it as bad as ours?
2:42 am
Haz1558

From the way the pundits were talking yesterday, the England performance will be used for years to come as an object lesson in how not to defend.
2:43 am

On the upside we beat Australia at cricket and aparently the UK won the freshwater fishing championships :)

I considered the play that fellow made in extra time to be rather amazing, catching the ball on his left shoulder from 40 yards or so away
2:44 am

The fellow who kicked the ball to Gyan (the man who scored the winning goal) was Andre Ayew. He was voted Man of the Match

Hi FM, Douglas, and Haz.
2:50 am
Haz1558

Strangest call of the weekend was the tortoise whose shell was punctured thanks to the attentions of a boxer dog called Angel. Poor choice of name!
2:50 am
FMitch

poor tortoise, is it OK?
2:50 am
Haz1558

Yes, hopefully, it got an antibiotic injection.
2:51 am

2:52 am
Haz1558

You're right there!
2:52 am
Douglas

Hello Soodle. Ireland, England and the USA are all equal now
2:53 am

2:54 am

That's very gracious of you, Douglas.
2:54 am

Nah they will have seats out on the wings.

As it is a 12 hour flight from J'burg they will certainy have time to ponder everything.
2:55 am
Haz1558

Hitch hiking and a slow boat home - things might have been forgotten by the time they get back.
2:56 am
FMitch

Hitch hiking and then to be picked up by a buss load of German supporters :)
2:56 am
Haz1558

Of course, it may have a great deal to do with the fact that the English premiership is awash with foreign players, so there's no strength in the squad.
2:57 am
Haz1558

But there's no fun in being rational about it, is there?
2:57 am
FMitch

Can't believe my downtime (the summer) is dominated by football and as soon as it is all over I will be back to 40 weeks of football - argh!
2:58 am
FMitch

Shall we set up a Babble Tiddley Winks team as a diversion?
2:58 am
Haz1558

At least you didn't have to type the results while steadily weeping.
2:58 am
FMitch

lol true
2:59 am
FMitch

or we could carry on with the Babble pub quiz team?
2:59 am
Haz1558

I think the quiz team idea is still the best.
3:00 am
FMitch

Douglas would be very useful on the musical rounds.
3:00 am
Douglas

In American football, the phrase "so-and-so made a play" is commonly used with the connotation "so-and-so skillfully took advantage of an opportunity" I get that Gyan of Ghana made a play. If one wishes to get technical, he made three plays; he caught the ball on his shoulder, beat a defender, and made a shot that beat Tim Howard, one of the best keepers in the world. I bow to his excellence.
3:00 am
Haz1558

Music and poetry.

Do they have pub quizzes in the states? Where teams compete to answer general knowledge questions?

The part about the World Cup I don't get is the lack of instant replay on goals. USA had two goals taken away from them in the group stage, both unjustly, in my opinion
3:03 am

My pub quiz pub of preference is Keegan's Irish Pub in Minneapolis

hi guys, Haz I love quizzes

Hi sandy!

Haz1558

The powers that be claim that it would be too expensive to install goal line technology, the thinking being that it would have to be used everywhere or nowhere. I don't see why they can't agree to have it on important games. Let's face it,the game is awash with money.
3:03 am
sandyloo

hi mitch
3:04 am
Haz1558

Hello, sandyloo.
3:04 am
FMitch

No the players are awash with money :(
3:04 am
Haz1558

Glad to see that the Irish pubs are spreading the word. Are the quizzes of a pretty high standard?
3:04 am
FMitch

What have you done to your icon sandy?
3:05 am
Haz1558

Then each awash with money player should be required to fund goal line technology - it's in their own interests, and in the interests of natural justice.
3:06 am
sandyloo

Lol mitch, I am trying to become more computer literate- so I scanned a pic in (first time) and tried to put it on my icon- however apparently I have to crop it first

3:11 am
Haz1558

It's okay, sprite. Yes, there are k words but not many.
3:11 am
Douglas

I consider myself to be well versed in trivial knowledge, but sometimes the quizzes give me a thorough thrashing, because they have questions on pop culture items that I don't follow closely
3:11 am

just started
3:12 am

thanks. Am positive I can find 3 K words.
3:13 am
Haz1558

I know what you mean, Douglas, but you can't know everything - and think of the horror of having to listen to some of that stuff. Let others make the sacrifice.

If PG Wodehouse were translated into French, Bertie Wooster would be facing the magistrates charged with stealing an officer's ke4 on Boat Race night.
3:17 am

That was a reference from the Monty Python "Wizzo Assortment" sketch, where the Police Inspector says to the candy maker "Cherry Fondue...now this is rather nasty, but we can't prosecute you for that."
3:17 am

No Sprite. They say its lost... They had the original. So I am expected to go to the Births Register Office, pay for a new one, take it to the passport office, and return on Friday to pick up the wretched thing. A round trip of 140kms each time.

4:21 am
Sally-catlover

Do you think they would get on?
4:21 am
ddb4nana

would you believe it is 3:21 am here...must go to bed!
4:21 am
Sally-catlover

4:21 am

yes & yes yogo. and yes I have seen kangaroos and koalas and we do have a red headed female Prime Minister
4:21 am
Haz1558

This is true, Sprite, and those corgis might prove to be a nuisance around Spangle.
4:21 am
sprite

nobody fights in Haz's cupboard
4:21 am
Haz1558

Sleep well, ddb!
4:22 am
sprite

they are so very spoiled, Haz. Spangle might become annoyed.
4:22 am
Haz1558

Absolutely. They say many a courtier has had his ankles well nipped.
4:22 am

eeew
4:23 am
yogo1

i used to live near melourne in a tiny town called Tooleybuc...
4:23 am
sprite

a bad habit that may become worse on the diet you have for the dogs in your home, Haz.
4:23 am
yogo1

4:23 am
Sally-catlover

So are you Australian yogo?
4:23 am
rubyfoo

I am finding more and more phantoms and fewer and fewer words now
4:23 am
lynxxx

really Yogo. How old were you then?
4:24 am
Haz1558

Gruel is not cruel.
4:24 am
sprite

no, not cruel. But for the corgis it might come as a culture shock.
4:24 am
sprite

rubyfoo, try pictogram. My favo phantom for today.
4:24 am
yogo1

i was 8 when i moved there but i stayed till i was almost 10 :)
4:25 am
sprite

careful, yogo. Don't give out personal info in the internet.
4:25 am
rubyfoo

I think frito should be acceptable, after all, it's one of the main food groups
4:25 am
yogo1

yes i was born in Canberra :)
4:25 am
Haz1558

I know. A diet of gruel eaten in a cupboard might come as a shock after caviare in the palace.
4:25 am
sprite

what is frito? Frites with mayo? In that case I agree.
4:25 am
yogo1

i wont any more :( oops
4:25 am
Sally-catlover

Ah, my favourite word is in the grid. ce 4/6. A word you know well if you keep chickens...
4:25 am
sprite

it would be much healthier for them though.
4:25 am
sprite

lol Sally :D
4:26 am
rubyfoo

kind of salty chips, great with dip
4:26 am
rubyfoo

monkeying that one, sally....
4:27 am
Haz1558

ruby, it has a latin plural ending.
4:27 am
sprite

2 syllables, rubyfoo
4:27 am
Sally-catlover

And repeat the first consonant somewhere. Now can we give any more clues for this word?
4:28 am
rubyfoo

got it, thank you
4:28 am
yogo1

ae4,6 pls
4:28 am
sprite

we could, but it is not necessary ;)
4:28 am
sprite

where the eagle builds its nest, yogo
4:28 am
rubyfoo

and sally almost landed in the pb with ch**
4:29 am
Haz1558

ae plus the first two letters of a type of cereal, often used in a type of dark bread.
4:29 am
sprite

ch4 being short for chicken sh?
4:29 am
yogo1

got it ty
4:29 am
Sally-catlover

lol, not really ruby. Otherwise there would be so many words we couldn't use. My chickens are quite ch**!
4:30 am
yogo1

ac4,6 pls
4:30 am
sprite

no gruel for those chickens. Just caviare!
4:30 am
rubyfoo

what color are their eggs?
4:30 am
yogo1

i am determined to finish this puzzle...
4:31 am
rubyfoo

I have a friend with exotic chickens that lay strange-colored, speckled eggs!
4:31 am
ubgrud

yogo: ac + male
4:31 am
rubyfoo

also very ch**
4:31 am
yogo1

ac4,6 pls
4:31 am
yogo1

thanks
4:31 am
Sally-catlover

They are all different. One lays very long brown speckled ones, one lays more rounded light brown. The two new girls (Fluffy and Scruffy) lay speckled eggs which are darker one end than the other - very pretty.
4:31 am
rubyfoo

hello ubgrud!
4:31 am
sprite

hey ubgrud. You live very close to where I live.
4:31 am
yogo1

got it ty
4:31 am
Haz1558

ac4/6 - a pain
4:32 am
rubyfoo

do their tastes differ?
4:32 am
yogo1

ac5,12 :) pls
4:32 am
Haz1558

yogo, sorry, I don't think it's fair to ask for clues for word after word. You need to look at the grid and find some words for yourself.
4:32 am
yogo1

ok ill try..... :)
4:32 am
sprite

yogo, could you try to find some words by yourself?
4:33 am
Sally-catlover

no, just the shells are different. It is a myth that there is any difference whatever in the content between different coloured eggs.
4:33 am
Haz1558

The point of the game is to find words, not necessarily to finish just to say you've finished.
4:33 am
sprite

it is more fun, both for you and for uw
4:33 am
sprite

that should have read *us
4:33 am
Sally-catlover

However, the yolks are very golden yellow - almost orange. When I first had the two new girls their yolks were quite pale in comparison, but now after free ranging for a while their yolks have darkened.
4:34 am
rubyfoo

my neighbor tried to dye easter eggs, but wasn't thinking about the fact that the eggs here are brown. They all came out sort of mud-colored
4:34 am
yogo1

ok but most of the words i dont know and i just guess....but i still find them....i have 15 words....
4:34 am
sprite

the content can change with different food then :)
4:34 am
rubyfoo

European eggs are SOOOO much better than American ones which have very pale yolks and white shells
4:34 am
Haz1558

Then you realy can't expect people to give you clues for all the rest. Accept that you don't know as many words as others, but try to find the easy ones, there are lots of normal words if you take the time to look.
4:35 am
rubyfoo

"let them eat bugs!"
4:35 am
yogo1

ok thanks :)
4:35 am
Sally-catlover

yes sprite. But I have read that in the US white eggs are popular because they are seen to be cleaner and therefore more "healthy", whereas in the UK brown eggs are seen as healthier!
4:35 am
Haz1558

If you listen in to clues being given to other people, you should be able to work out some more as well.
4:35 am
yogo1

aussie eggs i have to say are the best :)
4:35 am
rubyfoo

I've only finished 3 times in more than 6 months, yogo, and that was with a lot of help from the chog!
4:36 am
yogo1

ok
4:36 am
sprite

that is funny, Sally. Knowing where the eggs come from, I think nobody should consider them clean, grin.
4:37 am
rubyfoo

true, sprite!
4:37 am
Sally-catlover

rofl, sprite!
4:37 am
Haz1558

We don't want to discourage you from playing, just to make you realise that you need to take it at a pace that's right for you and everyone else.
4:37 am
Sally-catlover

Eggs from chooks are much cleaner than duck eggs, though. Ducks lay on the floor.
4:37 am
yogo1

yep thats ok :)
4:37 am
rubyfoo

I've never known if it is necessary to wash eggs before you break them
4:38 am
sprite

yogo, think of how proud you will feel when you find some good words on your own :)
4:38 am
Haz1558

Good, yogo, I hope you enjoy the game.
4:38 am
rubyfoo

sometimes they have feathers stuck to them
4:38 am
yogo1

i agree sprite
4:38 am
sprite

I love really fresh eggs. They taste so much better than the shop ones.
4:38 am
rubyfoo

guess what time it is, sally! you are right as usual
4:38 am
Sally-catlover

Not usually from chickens, unless there is dirt on them. However, I do usually clean duck eggs just before breaking.
4:39 am
Sally-catlover

hic!
4:39 am
rubyfoo

I've never had a duck egg :(
4:39 am
Haz1558

Okay, time I was doing other things. Have a good day and maybe see you later. Bye!
4:39 am

4:52 am
Kallia

what word is it?
4:53 am
Sally-catlover

If you put in a word that isn't in Babble's dictionary, just under the Add Word box it will show in red, with a message saying word not found in dictionary, or something like that. If the word is successful, it will show in green, saying Last word added: ...
4:53 am
yogo1

actor...oops was i meant to write it like that :)
4:53 am
Kallia

nope lol
4:53 am
Kallia

but it should accept it
4:54 am
Kallia

4:54 am
FMitch

4:54 am
lynxxx

4:54 am
yogo1

I think she was a big fan of "To Kill a Mockingbird".

I don't mind Rumer, but Scout sounds like a dog's name.
9:45 am

There was an author named I think Rumer Godden- I read her when I was a kid. She wrote about India, and coming of age stuff.
9:46 am

There was a champion Bichon named Rumour [has it]

10:45 am

ty Haz..
10:50 am
Minveryork

Was reading chog earlier. I am also one not to always follow icon themes. I used to follow it religiously and I was one of those who begged other babblers to follow the theme,but then I became a hypocrite and I started to not follow the theme anymore.If I don't care for the theme that day,then I do not do it.I do something else
10:50 am
Haz1558

No problem, Aloy.
10:51 am
Minveryork

Thank you aebmusica and hello there!It has been awhile.
10:51 am
Minveryork

However,I do still wish people would do theme on Fridays
10:52 am
Haz1558

It's one of these things that a few get very involved with and can't seem to help wishing that others would as well, but it just doesn't seem that important to me. I wish it could be accepted and not sighed over.
10:52 am
aebmusica

yes it has....
10:53 am
BabbleRabble

Hello, aebmusica.
10:53 am
Aloyisius

well, I stick with my sun for practical reasons.. am not so skilled on the computer as to be able to retrieve my sun once I replace it.. any tips on that?
10:53 am
aebmusica

hi BR and all!
10:53 am
Minveryork

Only thing I sigh over here is when I do not get fireworks.
10:54 am
Aloyisius

on another subject, I have not received an email from Dr_God about changes on the site.. feeling left out..
10:54 am
Haz1558

Don't look to me for help, Aloy! I like your sun.
10:54 am
Minveryork

Paste your sun onto your desktop, then you can upload it.
10:55 am
Haz1558

Aloy, maybe you've changed your e-mail address or something?
10:55 am
Haz1558

I'm sure he wouldn't leave you out deliberately. Have you had it forwarded to you?
10:56 am
Aloyisius

I did when my laptop crashed, Haz.. but I still have the server email that I used for Babble profile
10:56 am
Aloyisius

.. or Babble account info I should say
10:56 am
Minveryork

I got an e-mail, but I did not respond. Maybe send him an email and ask him to send it to you Or I could paste email into chat log if you want. That is what Jacula did before.
10:56 am
BabbleRabble

Aloy, right click on the sun, click on "Copy image location" and save it documents or some other file. When you want to use it again, browse to the location and upload it.
10:57 am
Haz1558

Well, I'm sure FM would send it onto you, you have her e-mail, don't you? It's just a request for feedback and ideas for how babble can be improved.
10:57 am
Aloyisius

ty BabbleRabble and Minver for the ideas.. I will try them out for sure.. hey, then I can post my grandaughter's pic once in a while (-:

10:59 am
FMitch

My ears were burning so I thought I had better pop into babble land.
10:59 am
Minveryork

Aloyisius,here's the email that Dr. God sent to all babblers
Fellow Pro Babbler-

I realized this morning that I've been neglecting Babble lately,
and I'm thinking it's time I gussied the site up a bit. So I'm
asking for your feedback. I welcome any and all feedback. Let your
brain juices flow!

A few sample questions/topics:

What do you like the most about Babble?
What do you dislike the most about Babble?
What feature(s) would you like to see added to Babble?
How could the Babble community be strengthened?

Your feedback can be nit-picky or can include pie-in-the-sky dreams.
It's all good to me.

Thanks and Happy Babbling!

- Dr_God

11:04 am
Aloyisius

how could he not like the idea.. oh, I remember a problem a long time ago with the Scrabble people.. too similar or something so he changed the tile values.. maybe that is why he doesn't use the official Scrabble dict..
11:04 am
rururocks

but not be able to dispatch anyone who has signed up for pro
11:05 am

Thanks stidmama.
11:05 am

having said that we really don't get trolls like we used to (trying not to tempt fate)!
11:05 am

11:06 am
helensgirlkid

What are trolls?
11:06 am
Minveryork

Well, I have not seen any changes to babble since he sent out that email. But then again, maybe nobody responded
11:06 am

nasty pranksters with foul mouths helen.
11:06 am
stidmama

trolls are nasty, evil creatures who hide under the grid and foul the chog....
11:06 am
Haz1558

I responded. He said I was thorough. I think he means that I'm dangerously obsessed.
11:06 am
redturtlehead

hello, I would love to have a troll dispatcher button! sort of like a cyber flush?
11:07 am
Aloyisius

LOL.. Minver, did you mean
minimize instead of close? Got kicked off the site when I closed Babble.. see, told you I wasn't so skilled
11:07 am
Minveryork

Hello helensgirlkid!How are you doing?Welcome to puzzle
11:07 am

Minver - he won't have made any changes yet, it takes time to update a website!
11:07 am
helensgirlkid

I recall one not long ago - responded to being politely answered/ignored, as appropriate by going away - I was amazed at my fellow babblers for patience and efficiency!
11:07 am

Somebody suggested before to have an edit button in the chog. I agreed because I never edit my story of clues I do.
11:09 am

Hello, crossy!
11:09 am

A ticker tape across the babble screen? Red perks up!
11:09 am

Oh man sorry.
11:12 am

If I could share the rain, I surely would. Apparently it's just what gardeners and farmers were looking for.
11:12 am

i love the rain:) especially on my days off,cause it means there is someone else standing out there all day listening to the citiots whine
11:12 am
stidmama

It has slowed down, Haz -- used to grow up to about 6 inches a year, now more like 4-5. About the only thing in my body that "works" properly! LOL

I donate my cut hair as well. Was going to wait until I was done with the Master's program to cut it again, but now think I will do it this summer and just hope it's long enough. It will probably be the last time I do it. I can't have long hair when I work, it takes too much effort to keep it tidy.
11:14 am

thanks for the mo 7

11:19 am
Haz1558

Dear me. I tried my hardest to grow my hair as a teenager but it got to shoulder length and wouldn't budge.
11:19 am
Minveryork

It would also get into the dog's mouth and we would have to pull it out of his rear end, but were scared it would get caught around something in his body. So I had to cut hair
11:20 am
Haz1558

But you didn't tell the hairdresser that.
11:20 am

About six months ago, I cut off about 12 or 13 inches of hair and eight inches of beard

Hello Babblers. This is my first grid since last Wednesday. I was away and had no internet service. It was tough.

Dilemma: 4 people rent a cabin for a vacation. At last minute 2 people opt out of trip. Should those 2 people still pay their portion of the rental cost?
11:46 am
bichon

Yes, if money has been paid for the rental, then it is a done deal and they should still pay
11:47 am
fuquayvarina

Hey Scrabs, I think they should, for sure.
11:47 am
Scrabbler

I agree, but those 2 people have yet to make offer to pay so now I must ask.
11:49 am
bichon

Who paid actual cash fo the rental?
11:49 am
bichon

Who paid actual cash fo the rental?

Kenny Chuck

Need clues for ke4/11 and ko4. Help please.
11:53 am
bichon

If you paid fo the rental and the money can't be refunded, I would guess you need ask the non comers to pay. It's touchy and awkward
11:55 am
Soodlebum

I agree with Bichon. Mind you, they shouldn't have left Scrabbler in the position of having to ask. They should have done the decent thing, and stumped up!
11:55 am
Scrabbler

Well, I just asked the one friend and she paused, then said she would pay for both herself + the other woman (was sick the night before we were to leave.) $164 total--not small amt. But, to cancel the morning of departure was, I thought, disrespectful.
11:55 am
Minski

hi everyone.
11:56 am
Scrabbler

I gave them a few days to make the offer to pay, and they did not, so I just did it.
11:56 am
Scrabbler

Hi Minski
11:56 am
periwinkle

good for you Scrabs
11:56 am
Soodlebum

You live and learn, Scrabbler!
11:56 am
Minski

It's 86 degrees with 96% humidity outside and my daughters are sharing a can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup for lunch. I think I'm just going to crawl into the refrigerator and take a nap.
11:57 am
Scrabbler

I have been SO anxious about this for the entire vacation, and now I am proud that I handled the issue.
11:57 am
Scrabbler

Yucky, Minski. I forget where you live.
11:57 am
periwinkle

you shouod be proud,Scrabs it was an awkward situation
11:58 am
Soodlebum

KE 4/11 If you have a cold, you may use a hand***chie*.
11:58 am
periwinkle

going up to 97 today, don't know the humidity and don't want to know
11:58 am
Soodlebum

And the KO sounds like the leftover bit of an eaten apple.

11:59 am
Kenny Chuck

Thanks Peri
11:59 am
Scrabbler

I am so relieved, Peri. I didnot want hard feelings, either from me wanting to get paid the owed $, or for her arguing that she didn't need to pay.
12:00 pm
Kenny Chuck

Thank Soo
12:01 pm
Soodlebum

Lol. Your welcome, Kenny.
12:04 pm
Minski

I live in Massachusetts just North of Boston.
12:04 pm
Minski

Scrabbler, you dealt with the situation well. Where are you going on your trip?
12:05 pm
Soodlebum

Oh Heavens above. My 18 yr old daughter has just come home with a tattoo - a small star on her inner wrist. :-(
12:07 pm
Deeha

Watch it Soodle - they appear to multiply. Mydaughter had a small one on her shoulder - now she must have several hundred pounds worth of them - back, ankle, wrist - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!!!
12:07 pm
Minski

My cousin did that at 18. Her parents had a hemiplastic fit and made her get an AIDS test. It is a tiny butterfly just inside her bikini line.
12:07 pm
Scrabbler

Sorry, busy on phone. We just spent 4 days in Cook Forest in Cooksburg, PA---wonderful place on the Clarion River. Great kayaking + hiking!
12:08 pm
Minski

I don't understand tattoos personally. Aside from my Daughters and DH, I can't think of anything I love enough to want it on my body at 85.
12:08 pm
Scrabbler

Sorry, Soodle. Her choice, her consequence to deal with.
12:09 pm
Scrabbler

I agree--I have zero interest in a permanent skin mark.
12:09 pm
Atalante

*flops* what a weekend!
12:09 pm
Scrabbler

Minski, my friend's sister lives in North Andover.
12:09 pm
Deeha

I didnt get me ears pierced till I was 56 - then I could nt bear to look at the 'holes' for weeks!!
12:10 pm
susanj2

p
12:10 pm
Soodlebum

I had always told the kids that if they came home with a tattoo, I would get one too - I thought the shame of a tattooed mother would prevent them from getting one. And NO! This time I will not carry out my threat!
12:11 pm
Deeha

Really shock them Soodle - have your tongue pierced!!
12:11 pm
Soodlebum

Ata! Good or Bad 'what a weekend'?
12:12 pm
Atalante

good and bad. sister's big op went all very wrong which caused a lot of chaos
12:13 pm
Scrabbler

Uh, oh, Ata, what happened?
12:13 pm
Soodlebum

Oh I am so sorry. What happened?
12:13 pm
Atalante

he opened her up, discovered the hernia hole was actually a great big network of smaller holes, found adhesions between anything and everything and closed her back up before she could bleed out. Poor surgeon guy!
12:14 pm
Atalante

surgeon said it was the first time he'd ever had to completely back away from an operation *sigh8
12:15 pm
Soodlebum

So what happens now, Ata?
12:15 pm
Atalante

well that is an interesting question!
12:16 pm
Minski

lunchtime. bbl8r.
12:16 pm
Atalante

he said the whole thing could potentially rip / rupture any day, so she's under strict orders to do nothing. they are going to look into doing a really serious op at a big research hospital with a GI surgeon and a plastic surgeon to take out most of the bowel and reconstuct the internal walls. But whether she'd survive that is another atter
12:16 pm
Atalante

*matter
12:16 pm
Soodlebum

Can she be treated with meds?
12:17 pm
Atalante

not for that, nope
12:17 pm
Soodlebum

OH, that is just too bad. How old is she?
12:17 pm
Atalante

37
12:18 pm
wht

Hi all. How is it that some Babblers leave for lunch and some come to Babbleland for lunch?
12:18 pm
wht

Ata, That is so unfortunate about your sister.
12:18 pm
Soodlebum

Ata, that is just terrible. I am very sorry to hear it.
12:19 pm
Atalante

she;s not going to have any organs left!!! poor girl
12:19 pm
Deeha

How sad, Ata. I am so sorry.
12:21 pm
Atalante

soooo we'll see what happens! but she's at home again now which cheered her up immensely
12:21 pm
Scrabbler

Poor girl, Ata!
12:21 pm
Scrabbler

How is she feeling now?
12:22 pm
Scrabbler

Hi wht. I am here during my lunch break.
12:22 pm
Riverdance

Hi ATA - so sorry to hear about your sister
12:22 pm
Atalante

12:23 pm
Riverdance

12:24 pm
Soodlebum

Hi River. Hows Keith?
12:24 pm
Riverdance

He is good - just hanging about playing video games
12:24 pm
Deeha

It is 6.30 in the evening here and I am watching - well-listening to the Murray match at Wimbledon
12:25 pm
Riverdance

and chasing his sister off the computer when he can
12:25 pm
wht

I'm here on lunch too. Not taking a poll but I noticed that Minski was leaving for lunch just as I arrrived for lunch.
12:26 pm
Soodlebum

Lol. Deeha - You shouldn't have given that time-check. I should be cooking dinner. Now I'm not cooking dinner, and feeling mildly guilty.
12:26 pm
Riverdance

popcorn is good for dinner...
12:28 pm
Riverdance

we are letting Keith choose our dinners all week - he is killing me at the grocery store
12:28 pm
Scrabbler

Uh, oh, first 2 afternoon patients have arrived--sisters. I will have to leave soon.
12:28 pm
Atalante

watching Murray too
12:28 pm
Riverdance

most kids want junk - mine wants delmonico steaks and haddock
12:29 pm
Riverdance

two for the price of one???
12:29 pm
Riverdance

I always book my kids together too
12:30 pm
Soodlebum

Phew. Fireworks -Now I can go and feed the starving... Bye everybody.
12:30 pm
Scrabbler

Yep, we call 2 sib appts "doubles". The most I ever did was a group of 6 sibs together--chaos!
12:30 pm
Riverdance

congrats and bye soodle
12:30 pm
Riverdance

yikes
12:31 pm
Riverdance

my sons pediatrician called last week when she heard about Keith - she recommended a medical bracelet or pendant - I need to look into that
12:31 pm
Scrabbler

Groups of sibs = teasing, laughing, inattention, pissed off mother, confusion...
12:31 pm
Scrabbler

Yes, if he has WPW.
12:31 pm
Scrabbler

Your pharmacy will have info.
12:32 pm
Riverdance

they are doing the ablation next week
12:32 pm
Scrabbler

So he had the cardiac cath already?
12:32 pm
Riverdance

no - all at the same time - they are sure they will find wpw looking at his ekg's and history
12:33 pm
Scrabbler

Over the years, I have known many kids that all did well with their ablation procedures. Youngest was 6.
12:33 pm
Atalante

what did they decide was wrong with him, river?
12:33 pm
Scrabbler

He was a triplet, born with SVT that recurred for years.
12:33 pm
Riverdance

it will all depend on where this pathway is - if near the AV node that could be a problem
12:34 pm
Scrabbler

Ata, read about Wolffe-Parkinson-White Syndrome and delta waves.
12:34 pm
Atalante

ooo ok
12:36 pm
Scrabbler

I must review the charts of these sisters + go see them. BBL, if I have a chance.
12:37 pm
Riverdance

bye scrabbs
12:37 pm
Atalante

oh gosh. that must have been a bit of a shock for you, river! good luck to him next week :)
12:37 pm
Riverdance

ata - it is a funky thing with the electrical part of his heart that maintains the beat -
12:38 pm
Riverdance

to say the least - his heart rate went over 300 for over 40 minutes
12:38 pm
Riverdance

at pre-op the Doc said is that happened again, he may not pull out of it so well
12:39 pm
Riverdance

so we are encouraging TV, video games, computer
12:39 pm

12:39 pm
Riverdance

12:40 pm
Atalante

1:18 pm
Riverdance

we are under alert for severe storm watch until 9 tonight
1:18 pm
Riverdance

must be coming up from your way
1:19 pm
rubyfoo

we could use some rain as no matter how much we get, because we're on a hillside, two days later it's very dry
1:19 pm
Ormal

I think it must be. I knew it was supposed to rain, but I have a small creek building in my yard.
1:20 pm
rubyfoo

I hope your house is on high ground, ormal
1:20 pm
Ormal

sure is, but the neighbors aren't quite so lucky. last time it rained like this their basements got fairly wet
1:22 pm
Riverdance

so what kind of ride did you have planned for tonight
1:22 pm
Ormal

I try to ride my bike about 7 miles 5-6 days a week around the lake here in town in an attempt to lose some of the weight gained by quitting smoking.
1:24 pm
Riverdance

thats great - too bad we are so far away from each other - I desperately need to do something too
1:25 pm
Ormal

I understand. It has taken a lot of time to get myself motivated and it's always better when you have someone to help keep you motivated.
1:25 pm
Riverdance

hey ruby - you still here
1:25 pm
rubyfoo

yes, quietly struggling to get a word or two
1:26 pm
rubyfoo

I feel rotten, everything hurts... whine whine!
1:26 pm
Riverdance

do you have the pr8 - to stick out
1:26 pm
Riverdance

did you overdo today
1:27 pm
rubyfoo

yup
1:27 pm
rubyfoo

yes to that, too
1:27 pm
rubyfoo

but overdoing doesn't take much I'm afraid!
1:27 pm
Ormal

I'm on the list now and was quite sure there could not possibly be that many th words today...so far I only have one. lol
1:27 pm
Riverdance

a nice cold cocktail will help that - must be getting close to cocktail hour
1:28 pm
Riverdance

th5/14 = th* end + the **t in the hat

Scrabbler

They were adorable!
1:36 pm
Riverdance

1:38 pm

The location doesn't change the fact that poverty + lack of education lead to many, many problems, whether on this reservation, inner city, rural areas, etc. It is a sad, daily encounter for me.
1:43 pm
Scrabbler

I found he6 and 8 on my own!
1:45 pm
Minski

Minski

Hi. I'm back again. Got distracted finding something to make for dinner. I defrosted 2 chicken breasts but haven't been shopping for a while so am out of most fresh ingredients.
4:29 pm
Minski

finally found "Chicken Breasts with Honey Balsamic Glaze" on the Weight Watchers website. I actually have all of the ingredients. DH won't have to go to the grocery store on the way home from work.
4:30 pm
Lady Biotch

is it raining there Minski?? I have had the chicken breast marinating all day but it is pouring and thunder and lightning in RI
4:30 pm
Lady Biotch

wanted to do them on the grill
4:31 pm
Minski

Not yet but by the looks of things it will be pretty soon. This is a nonstick skillet recipe so I'm all set.
4:32 pm
Nancy Boy

haha, rain...we have forgotten what that's like here ;) it's soooo hot!
4:33 pm
Lady Biotch

it was 85 here today NB but it has cooled off by 10 degrees now that this storm is blowing through very humid in rhode island
4:33 pm
Lady Biotch

but I am not complaining after the cold and snowy winter we had
4:34 pm
Minski

I checked out the radar on intellicast.com. You have a window of opportunity to grill but I'm not sure exactly when it iwll be. Depends on how fast the storm is moving.
4:34 pm
Nancy Boy

we had some great snow this winter - probably nothing like what you had, but enough to bring England to a standstill nonetheless ;) I love summer thunderstorms though...hope we'll be getting some.
4:34 pm
Minski

yeah it was 86 degrees but 96% humidity here
4:35 pm
Lady Biotch

maybe I will do them in a nonstick skillet had a little liquid smoke and pretend I did them on the grill!!
4:35 pm
Minski

4:36 pm
Lady Biotch

I am scared to death of thuderstorms dad freaked us out about them when we young
4:36 pm
Lady Biotch

he would run through the house unplugging almost every appliance if he could have got behind the stove and refrigerator he would have unplugged them too LOL
4:37 pm
Minski

I love to watch them from inside a house or a car. It is great to watch one in the distance when you are driving on the highway.
4:37 pm
Lady Biotch

I was driving from Dallas to Houston many years ago and lighting hit the median about 100 feet in front of us
4:38 pm
Nancy Boy

they remind me of being back in Korea - there'd be awesome storms there in summer, and I used to stay up and watch them when I was a kid.
4:38 pm

Here is a story of clues fr 4/7 Minveryork. Pr5/12 to starting this grid, I woke up early this morning to he 4/5 ea4/6 of the birds ch5/16ing. Also had a massive headac4/6 because of a hangover. I was still ti 4/4d and in a bad mood and I had a ch 4/6 on my shoulder. I ru 4/6 drinking so much last night. Guess that's the pr 5/14 I have to pay for drinking too much. My dog woke up early in his ca 4/7. He did not ca 4/5 that it was 5:00 A.M., he was up barking ea5/14 to get out. My doggy wanted me to get my butt in ge 4/6 and let him out. He barked so much that he was fr5/18ing at the mouth. He also to 4/4 up his blanket. His barking ir 5/20 me so much. I thought it was ru 4/6 of him to wake me up so early. I wanted to wh 4/10 him. I was not going to tr 4/8 outside in the rain to let him out. I couldn't endu4/6 his barking so I put him in another room&closed the door.Wish I could hi4/5 someone to tend to my dog at 5:00 A.M. On my way back to bed, I tr 4/5ed over a stupid doggy toy which pr 8/55 out from under the couch. I was an over re7/32 and I re 5/12 badly by cursing at the toy. Then I I re5/14 for the toy and threw it across the room. Thinking back on it, it was quite a ri 4/4. I woke up again later in a much ri 5/12 mood. When I went to let him out later, he was sleeping. When I opened his ca4/7,he pe6/36 right up. I took him out and pi5/16 the ball to him.He loves playing with a ball. Hope you found some mo4/5 words wi4/9 this story. By the way, only part of this story is tr4/5.Now I'm going to call my friend er 5/12
