2:10 am
jillibus

west, William started walking on Father's Day when visiting Flosey and George, apparently just got up and toddled all over the place non-stop!
2:10 am
westford

that a in the first column was a stinker
2:11 am
westford

awww how adorable I'll bet he was saving it up for them
2:11 am
jillibus

I found nbt very hard this time too ans still only have 48 words.
2:11 am
rubyfoo

2:11 am
westford

I always know the vowels are going to give me trouble
2:11 am
jillibus

westford

bye george hope to see you again
2:13 am
jillibus

I haven't learned how to be comfy with my newish laptop yet. I wish I hadn't gone cheap, and had splurged for a smaller one.
2:14 am
jillibus

bye George -- have a nice kip!
2:14 am
westford

I don't think you would have liked a smaller one jilli my first was smaller
2:14 am
rubyfoo

by George
2:14 am
westford

ruby have you ever been on the Orient Express?
2:15 am
westford

I would really like to go on it
2:15 am
rubyfoo

no. We love the idea but it's VERY expensive!
2:15 am
westford

I figured it must be has been completely renovated
2:15 am
rubyfoo

I love trains anyway, even the TGV from here to Paris is a pleasure!
2:16 am
westford

flying is faster but trains have so much more class
2:16 am
rubyfoo

and not scary
2:17 am
jillibus

This is a 15" HP and a friend has a lovely 12 or 13" Macbook -- I saw a Viao like it but it cost about 3 times as much as what I got.
2:17 am
westford

it's not so much that it's scary but it's so impersonal now at least here
2:17 am
rubyfoo

unfortunately, there's no train service from here to Geneva which would be the bestjumping-off place
2:17 am
jillibus

I dread flying these days -- so much hassle. I just stay hoem.
2:18 am
jillibus

*home
2:18 am
jillibus

no trains in these here parts.
2:18 am
westford

jilli my first was a macbook and I gave it to our granddaughter it seems so tiny now
2:18 am
rubyfoo

does anyone remember the days when people wore their best clothes and women wore gloves to take a plane? Now they wear tank tops, shorts and flip flops
2:18 am
westford

I do and I miss that
2:19 am
rubyfoo

it's disgusting now
2:19 am
jillibus

I used to train travel between NYC and Montreal all the time, then flew too before it was such a pain.
2:19 am
westford

and we were treated with respect
2:20 am
jillibus

sardines in a can on planes now.
2:20 am
rubyfoo

and when you take the train, you wind up in the middle of the city (any city), not a long cab ride away.
2:20 am
westford

you said it
2:20 am
westford

and pay extra for everything even leg room
2:21 am
jillibus

I last flew in about 1998.
2:21 am
rubyfoo

when I went to London recently I took easyJet because it was about 1/3 the price of BA and the stewardess was angry because I bought a sandwich in the airport and brought it on board.
2:21 am
jillibus

From Victoria to Vancouver to Honolulu to Maui.
2:22 am
rubyfoo

what a lovely itinerary, jilli
2:22 am
jillibus

and back.
2:22 am
westford

oh ruby she was so rude here everyone brings food on
2:22 am
rubyfoo

I flew very often when I was still working, but that was before 9/11 when things changed
2:22 am
jillibus

not really, just airports.
2:23 am
rubyfoo

she was really nasty
2:23 am
westford

was that your first time in Hawaii jilli ?
2:23 am
jillibus

and trudging to different places, not sure where I was going and nobody helping.
2:24 am
sandrafrances

good morning all how many words today please
2:24 am
westford

was it lovely when you finally got to your destination?
2:24 am
jillibus

Well, I was in Honolulu when I was 8, for a day as the ship was stopped there. Going from Shanghai to Vancouver on the Empress of Japan. Now that's the way to travel.
2:24 am
westford

hello sandra 150
2:24 am
rubyfoo

150 sandra
2:24 am
rubyfoo

and good morning
2:24 am
sandrafrances

thanx
2:24 am
jillibus

hi sandrafrances
2:25 am
rubyfoo

that is impressive jilli!!!
2:25 am
jillibus

Maui is a big city!
2:25 am
westford

now even the cruise ships aren't as nice as they used to be lots of riff raff lol
2:26 am
rubyfoo

when I lived in Miami, the cruise ships used to pass by on the river on their way out and you could here the loudspeakers!
2:26 am
rubyfoo

and then they have horrible outbreaks of gastro-intestinal diseases! eeew
2:27 am
westford

we actually had a lovely cruise out of Miami ruby and the airport was a treat too
2:27 am
westford

I never washed my hands so much
2:28 am
rubyfoo

in 1967 I took the France trans-Atlantic back and forth. My son was only 4 and he had his own waiter in the children's dining room and we weren't even in 1st class!
2:28 am
westford

and for those that don't there is someone there to admonish
2:28 am
jillibus

It was okay, but the hotel had 400 rooms and the beach was narrow. We made out own meals. I had a room to myself and had gone to join a nephew and niece and my bro-in-law and his wife, who sort of wanted to keep to themsleves mostly. I was glad to get back to Salt spring!
2:28 am
flosey

sent email jilli, poof again
2:28 am
jillibus

thx flosey.
2:29 am
rubyfoo

my husband still wants to travel, but I am finished with that
2:29 am
westford

I remember seeing a story about a woman who lived on the QE2
2:29 am
westford

I think I could go for that
2:29 am
westford

she was like the woman without a country
2:30 am
jillibus

I did like Napili beach, where nephew and I went one day. But we had to drive everywhere and there was lots of traffic, not much parking, etc etc. Did take a bus to some shops.
2:30 am
rubyfoo

me, too! We trtavelled off-season and it wasn't crowded and I used to go up on deck and the steward would wrap me in a blanket and bring me bouillon! I think things have changed.....
2:31 am
westford

things have ruby but wouldn't it be nice to have some of that time back again
2:31 am
jillibus

I think I'll just enjoy my memories of past pleasures!
2:31 am
rubyfoo

I don't thik we appreciated it enough
2:31 am
westford

jilli I have never been to Hawaii and it doesn't sound that exciting
2:32 am
westford

like all things ruby
2:32 am
rubyfoo

maybe we should write memoirs!
2:32 am
westford

that would be a good idea..jilli are you listening?
2:32 am
jillibus

I gather there are better parts of Hawaii.
2:33 am
jillibus

oh shuddup, west, lol!
2:33 am
westford

I have always thought of Maui as an unspoiled paradise
2:33 am
westford

lol
2:33 am
rubyfoo

that would be a good idea IF we could get ghost writers.....
2:33 am
rubyfoo

to protect the names etc
2:33 am
jillibus

I can write, but can't find the time.
2:34 am
westford

jilli you have treated us all to so much of your amazing life
2:34 am
westford

how long do things stay in the archives, do you know?
2:34 am
rubyfoo

speaking of time, I had better get dressed or the "sloppy-person-police" will come after me
2:34 am
jillibus

It's my parents and grandparents who had the amazing lives and were so adventurous.
2:35 am
westford

lol ruby good thing he doesn't live here
2:35 am
westford

oh but you did too
2:35 am
rubyfoo

only 67 words, but a very nice chat and I'd love to hear jilli's stories; I'm afraid I joined babble too late!!!!
2:35 am
rubyfoo

*poo*
2:35 am
jillibus

West, Babble only started when the archives did -- Sept 2003, I think, and they're all still there.
2:36 am
westford

I wonder if your grandson would be interested in writing some of it down jilli
2:36 am
jillibus

I really have to go to bed -- not even halfway.
2:36 am
westford

he is a very talented writer from what I've seen
2:37 am
jillibus

I don't think so, west.
2:37 am
westford

maybe when he's older
2:37 am
westford

I think I will call it a night too
2:37 am
westford

see you all next time have a happy day ruby and a good sleep jilli
2:38 am
jillibus

He is talented, but isn't very interested in my past or family stuff. Years ago I did start to write about it and nearly lost my hubby. He didn't like my inattention to him.
2:39 am
westford

that's hard but now you have some time to yourself notice I didn't say all time
2:40 am
westford

you are one busy lady
2:41 am
westford

good night and poof
2:41 am
jillibus

yes, and I babble! And email, and so on...
2:46 am
jillibus

goodnight and poof too! Still not even halfway...
2:48 am
rubyfoo

bACk. That was supposed to be *poof*, not the other!
2:48 am
rubyfoo

cleaned up the kitchen, but don't feel like getting dressed. It's already too hot!
2:53 am
herinfernallady

Hello
2:57 am
rubyfoo

hello herin -- Cadel Evans in jellow! yay
2:57 am
rubyfoo

yellow*
2:57 am
herinfernallady

How you?
2:58 am
rubyfoo

no sports today! I'm tired of all that pedalling!
2:58 am
rubyfoo

how about you? Is it cool there?
2:58 am
herinfernallady

Freezing.
2:59 am
rubyfoo

no kidding!
2:59 am
herinfernallady

And just not impressed with friend that is being a twat
2:59 am
rubyfoo

it has been in the 90's every day here, very unusual and unpleasant
2:59 am
rubyfoo

what did she do?
3:00 am
herinfernallady

Just not listening to me
3:00 am
herinfernallady

I wanted to talk to her and she just talked at me
3:00 am
rubyfoo

how annoying!
3:01 am
herinfernallady

Very
3:01 am
herinfernallady

Today I found out that if I just do one part of a subject I get 50% and I said no that is wrong
3:02 am
rubyfoo

if you just stop talking, does she even notice?
3:03 am
herinfernallady

nope
3:03 am
herinfernallady

I have perfected the art of O wow really yes that is just (insert random words)
3:03 am
rubyfoo

open a book and hum
3:04 am
herinfernallady

not that rude
3:04 am
rubyfoo

it would be sort of funny though, and might make your point!
3:05 am
herinfernallady

True.
3:05 am
herinfernallady

But seriously how can a teacher just give you 50 % if you stuff up 5 points worth of stuff
3:06 am
rubyfoo

that doesn't make any sense
3:07 am
herinfernallady

No it doesn't
3:07 am
rubyfoo

brb
3:07 am
herinfernallady

I was told that if I didn't do the whole subject and just the bit I stuffed up I would get 50% only and I said that was not far
3:07 am
herinfernallady

fair
3:17 am
sandyloo

hi herin, ruby
3:17 am
herinfernallady

hi
3:18 am
Sally-catlover

Hi sandy
3:18 am
Sally-catlover

(and everyone)
3:18 am
sandyloo

ruby , is any rain forecast?
3:18 am
sandyloo

hi sally
3:18 am
herinfernallady

Hi Sally
3:22 am
rubyfoo

hello, I'm back
3:22 am
rubyfoo

hi sally, hello sandy!
3:22 am
rubyfoo

poor Lance! but Yaya for Evans!
3:22 am
sandyloo

Ruby, is any rain forecast?
3:22 am
Sally-catlover

Hi ruby!
3:23 am
rubyfoo

They forecast storms almost every day and then, when we get the occasional rain, they are right!
3:23 am
sandyloo

poor lance, he did have bad luck and I'm not sure Cadel really wants to be in yellow yet, he thinks there is a lot of pressure - i hope he deals with it
3:23 am
rubyfoo

We had a lovely storm on Saturday and it was just as hot the next day, just more humid
3:24 am
sandyloo

I think Cadel has been having some 'people skills' lessons, he seems to be more congenial lately and I did see the hail coming down just after the race
3:24 am
rubyfoo

I thought Lance looked pretty brave and resigned about his awful day; at least he doesn't whine
3:24 am
rubyfoo

As long as anybody but Contador wins, I'll be happy.
3:25 am
rubyfoo

but tomorrow is the day to see our area. Yesterday, did you like the aerial views of Geneva?
3:25 am
sandyloo

the hail was amazing - sunny all day and then it really came down - and I hate to say this but Contador looks strong with a good team and Cadel doesn't seem to have much help from his team
3:26 am
sandyloo

those shots of Geneva and of the mountains were amazing
3:26 am
rubyfoo

once the race is over each day, I have to hurry and get dinner together, so I missed the hail. But they were much higher up than here and Lake Annecy seems to have its own weather system
3:27 am
sandyloo

those em words have me stuck
3:27 am
rubyfoo

Geneva is beautiful, especially from the air! Husband is there today; he let me off the hook and went to the dentist alone. I had to make maps for him because I'm always the co-pilot and he refuses to oook at maps
3:28 am
sandyloo

Lol , I hope he doesn't have a toothache and that he oooks at the map
3:28 am
rubyfoo

one is the flightless bird
3:28 am
sandyloo

if you mean our bird, I can't see a four letter
3:29 am
rubyfoo

an adventure for him and a blessing for me. I find the trip, even though it's less than an hour, very tiring as I am tense when he drives
3:29 am
rubyfoo

add a vowel
3:29 am
rubyfoo

before the end
3:30 am
sandyloo

got that one thanks
3:30 am
sandyloo

what sort of a word is that?
3:30 am
rubyfoo

alternate spelling, I think
3:30 am
rubyfoo

the other one is em + plus same vowel + snake letter
3:30 am
sandyloo

I have never seen it spelt like that
3:31 am
rubyfoo

a babblet
3:31 am
Sally-catlover

oooh, got an 8.
3:31 am
rubyfoo

this big "expert" (hahah) just reached half!
3:31 am
Sally-catlover

And its plural :-)
3:32 am
rubyfoo

I got one 8 from the chog when I started, ad8/50. Is that yours, Sally?
3:32 am
sandyloo

I have one eight , one nine and 66 left
3:32 am
rubyfoo

how does the 9 start?
3:32 am
sandyloo

the nine is its plural
3:32 am
rubyfoo

remess
3:33 am
rubyfoo

nope!
3:33 am
Sally-catlover

yes it is, though I didn't get it from the chog. Have only just started. Somewhere in the murkier recesses of my mind :-)
3:33 am
sandyloo

it was in the murkier recess of my monkeying mind
3:34 am
rubyfoo

my mind's recesses are airing out in this heat!
3:34 am
herinfernallady

Hey Sandy did you hear that vile Kyle Sandilands split with his woman
3:35 am
sandyloo

no I didn't herin, but are we surprised? I think he would be hard to live with
3:36 am
rubyfoo

my ad8 has an s in it so no plural.....
3:36 am
rubyfoo

monkeys are panting
3:36 am
rubyfoo

doorbell!
3:36 am
Sally-catlover

There are two Ss, ruby
3:36 am
sandyloo

my ad9 is definitely the plural of my ad8
3:37 am
sandyloo

2 s s in the grid
3:37 am
herinfernallady

I think she is a trolop
3:37 am
herinfernallady

She seems like a gold digger
3:37 am
sandyloo

I am not familiar with her
3:38 am
sandyloo

you probably get more publicity over there
3:38 am
herinfernallady

15min pop singer
3:41 am
herinfernallady

clue for the AD 8 please
3:42 am
herinfernallady

Never mind
3:46 am
sandyloo

I'm back herin do you still need the clue
3:46 am
herinfernallady

no thanks
3:47 am
herinfernallady

Sally I only heard about that Kyle thing as I was coming in from the kitchen and they did a ''news flash'' on ACA
3:48 am
Sally-catlover

Not me asking herin, it was Sandy. Never heard of her :-)
3:49 am
herinfernallady

Sorry Sally so brain dead tonigh
3:50 am
Sally-catlover

np :-)
3:50 am
sandyloo

it was me herin and i am not familiar with the lady
3:50 am
herinfernallady

No Iam just saying I heard from a ''news flash'''which is so stupid as it is not newsworthy
3:51 am
Sally-catlover

Have a bird feeder stuck to my office window and there are bull finches coming to feed there constantly. Beautiful birds with rose red fronts.
3:51 am
sandyloo

no doubt we will hear more
3:51 am
Sally-catlover

oooooh, oops. PB for me.
3:53 am
sandyloo

Sally, I love it when the birds come to things like that - My husband put some nesting boxes into our trees and we have had a few generations of parrots breed in them - Rosellas and Redcap parrots
3:53 am
sandyloo

ooh loud hail here
3:53 am
herinfernallady

i have a demainding kityy
3:53 am
sandyloo

be back later
3:53 am
Sally-catlover

I loved the wild parrots in Australia - galahs (sp?)
3:55 am
sandyloo

we have pink and grey galahs here and big black cockatoos with red tails , white corellas, many other types - lots of different types over east where Herin is too
3:55 am
herinfernallady

You are lucky to have the black cockies
3:56 am
sandyloo

I do have to go again - have to feed the horses in the pouring rain - and herin they say when you see the black cockies it means rain and usually it follows
3:56 am
Sally-catlover

I just found the wild life amazing. It was the one thing that made Oz seem so "foreign" if you know what I mean. If we go to the continent, on the whole the birds and animals and sounds are similar. In Oz it was mind blowing!
3:56 am
Sally-catlover

The galahs and so on just flying wild were wonderful.
3:57 am
herinfernallady

I didn't know that Sandy
3:57 am
herinfernallady

Galahs are so bloody loud
3:58 am
sandyloo

still haven't left - they are indeed herin and we are on the migratory path for the black cockatoos which come in droves about twice a year - when they go through it is amazing - they stop and rest in our pine trees and banksias and they are deafening but not here for long
3:59 am
herinfernallady

Aren't they rare?
3:59 am
sandyloo

now 'poof'
4:03 am
Sally-catlover

103 done, will go and do something else now and be back later. Bye all.
4:03 am
herinfernallady

bye

5:21 am

you worked it out now :) Love it.
And I love curry too! *jumps into plane and flies to sandy*
5:22 am
sandyloo

lol I love curries and usually make the paste myself but not tonight , just something warm and toasty for tea as it is stormyand rainy here (lovely)
5:22 am
rubyfoo

drop-ins! all the people who live here part-time feel free to "pop in" without calling! it's nice to see them, but a phone call wd be nice!
5:22 am
sandyloo

had to put the computer in to be fixed though- they changed windows 7 back to xp for me
5:23 am
rubyfoo

hello sprite! that game was crooked! the refs were definitely biased against Holland!!!
5:23 am
sprite

it is awful here. It is bordering on a huge thunderstorm, I am crosseyed from headache and about to meld down into a puddle.
5:23 am
sandyloo

ruby, do you speak French to your neighbours and I keep meaning to ask - Is the Tour broadcast toyou in French?
5:24 am
sprite

yeah, I agree that the ref was doing a bad bad job.
5:24 am
sandyloo

Sprite, sorry about the headache , look after yourself you poor thing
5:25 am
rubyfoo

don't melt, Sprite! Does caffeine help?
5:25 am
sprite

I will be peachy as soon as the storm breaks. It is the tension in the air I cannot stand. And it is doing one thunder, a couple of drops, and stop. Etc.
5:25 am
sprite

yes, caffeine helps a bit.
5:25 am
FishFishGarden

maybe if the Dutch team had stuck to football and not UFC they'd have had a better chance of winning!
5:25 am
sprite

am about to undress and go out in the garden and do a serious raindance :)
5:26 am
rubyfoo

Yes, Sandy, I speak French with everybody except my husband and the "drop-ins" and our various houseguests. And the Tour is broadcast in French, so it is like a 3-week tutelage every year.
5:26 am
rubyfoo

what is UFC?
5:26 am
sandyloo

Wow I am impressed, could you speak it before you went to live there?
5:26 am
sprite

Fish2, I have no idea what you mean
5:27 am
rubyfoo

it has been over 90F (30+C) here for days and although we got a big thunderstorm on Saturday, it did nothing for the heat
5:27 am
FishFishGarden

UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship
5:27 am
FishFishGarden

how Van bommel stayed on the park confounds me
5:27 am
sandyloo

I am surprised that it is humid there, I thought that only tropical areas were humid - we have a meditteranean climate here
5:28 am
sprite

as soon as it gets hot in holland, it gets humid, sandy. Sea climate.
5:28 am
rubyfoo

yes, I had French in jr. high, high school and university, but couldn't speak that well. Now I can even understand movies and don't translate at all, even sometimes dream in it. Unfortunately, I have a New York accent in French (not in English) which I can't shake. My first teacher was from the Bronx! lol
5:28 am
sprite

yes, Van Bommel should have gotten red
5:29 am
rubyfoo

do you make all the side dishes with your curry, sandy?
5:29 am
sandyloo

this is crazy, I just CANNOT get that it4 any clues please
5:30 am
sprite

one piece of something, sandy
5:30 am
rubyfoo

I'm trying to make a vichysooisse but have so far been unsuccessful and made white school paste instead!
5:30 am
sandyloo

Ruby, I do make the side dishes if I have people over even my own chutneys but not tonight for home just some jars of stuff
5:30 am
rubyfoo

ty sprite, didn't see that
5:31 am
sandyloo

OMG Sprite - I knew it was a fish!!
5:31 am
rubyfoo

and plural!
5:31 am
sprite

hehehe 4s are almost always fishes. I know!
5:31 am
sandyloo

I find them the hardest sometimes
5:31 am
sprite

does anyone have the re6/27 and if so, could I please have a clue? Have been searching for ages.
5:32 am
rubyfoo

I'm sorry to sound stupid, but what do you mean by "fishes"?
5:32 am
sandyloo

tonight I am trying to grey out the downward columns in order
5:32 am
sandyloo

fishes are obvious words
5:32 am
rubyfoo

duh!
5:32 am
sprite

lol that is a nonexisting plural I love to use. A fish is a word you should have seen, but didn't, so you deserve a slap with a fish for not seeing it.
5:33 am
sandyloo

not yet sprite
5:33 am
sandyloo

oooops
5:33 am
rubyfoo

aaah, now I get when people say "slap"
5:33 am
sprite

5:33 am
rubyfoo

umes
5:33 am
sprite

yep, I usually slap people on request, with a guppy.
5:33 am
sandyloo

I know that Sprite it's funny how we who are so wordy wise do those things from time to time
5:33 am
rubyfoo

sprite

no PB, try harder :)
5:34 am

5:35 am
lynxxx

5:36 am
rubyfoo

5:36 am
sprite

that gives a good feeling at least, lyn. Do you have some time for yourself now?
5:36 am

5:36 am
rubyfoo

5:36 am
sprite

there are at least two un- words, ruby. un6 and un5
5:37 am
lynxxx

runny jelly is un***
5:37 am
rubyfoo

I'll go check on my school paste
5:37 am
sprite

and my bed is still un6
5:37 am
sprite

what is school paste?
5:38 am
rubyfoo

the white sticky stuff that elem school kids often eat or unsuccessful vichysoisse
5:38 am
rubyfoo

ty for the un
5:38 am
sprite

and for those interested: re6/27 is a group of saddle horses from which ranch hands choose mounts for the day. I bet they must wear ber****s when they do it.
5:38 am
rubyfoo

hahah
5:38 am
sprite

I don't think we know that in the netherlands, ruby
5:39 am
rubyfoo

it sounds like those fish that nibble on shark parasites
5:39 am
rubyfoo

you can tell I used to be a teacher
5:39 am
sprite

5:48 am
NonoNanette

yes a twist of lemon would be nice thanks
5:48 am
rubyfoo

it's been in the fridge for long enough to be really cold
5:50 am
sandyloo

I love iced tea and hi nan
5:51 am
rubyfoo

with your Indian food do you drink Kingfisher?
5:52 am
sandyloo

what is Kingfisher? and its more an Aussie curry tonight not Indian (which is my favourite I might add)
5:52 am
rubyfoo

when I was much younger I used to be able to do full Indian meals, homemade breads, deserts and all.
5:52 am
sandyloo

although I do Thai curries as well
5:52 am
rubyfoo

Indian beer
5:52 am
sprite

I love to cook Indian food
5:53 am
rubyfoo

5:53 am
sandyloo

I love to do it all for guests Ruby tonight its just my mums recipe which nicky and I love but bruce just puts up with but enjoys
5:53 am
sandyloo

Ruby I would LOVE that
5:54 am
rubyfoo

5:54 am
sprite

5:54 am
rubyfoo

I'll e-mail you some recipes a little bit later. Sprite, is you e-mail address in your profile or should I put it in facebook?
5:55 am
sandyloo

I once had about 20 over for a curry night and it took me a week to cook everything lol not doing that again
5:55 am
sprite

it is in my profile
5:56 am
rubyfoo

I used to make my own fresh cheese and puris and the works but some of the dishes are really simple, and Indian friends taught me how to make them with whatever local (nonexotic) ingredients were at hand
5:56 am
rubyfoo

great, I will write them up this afternoon.
5:56 am
sandyloo

Thankyou so much , I will love it
5:56 am
sprite

ohhhh one of my favo words is in the grid. The word for having an ample bosom.
5:57 am
rubyfoo

the last time Imade an Indian meal for company, my hip was out for two days after!
5:57 am
sprite

and that makes an un- word as well!
5:57 am
sandyloo

I'll send you a lovely Aussie desert recipe for chocolate pavlova
5:57 am

(I wouldn't know -- lol)
5:57 am

5:58 am
sprite

I would LOVE it, sandy
5:58 am

hmm, chocolate pavlova, my mouth is watering
5:59 am
sprite

fireflies! My last words were the un8s. I liked this grid very much!
5:59 am
sandyloo

ample bosom and an un word - my brain is falling out tonight
6:00 am
sandyloo

well done sprite as usual - you genius you
6:00 am
rubyfoo

I'm waiting for husband to get back from Geneva. Starting to worry as he's never gone alone before. I made him elaborate maps and instructions, but I am always the navigator.
6:00 am
sprite

the word for ample bosom is a male child + come to the dark **d*
6:00 am
lynxxx

Congrats Sprite!
6:00 am
rubyfoo

6:01 am
NonoNanette

congrats Sprite!
6:01 am
rubyfoo

he should have been back 30 minutes ago!
6:01 am
sandyloo

LOL ruby, I have done 4 words in the last hour - that is why I dont chat sometimes
6:01 am
sprite

actually it helps my brain go into word-spot mode, rubyfoo. It keeps me from overfocussing.
6:01 am
sprite

thanks all :)
6:02 am
rubyfoo

got the un8 but that is one weird word!! how is your headache, sprite?
6:02 am
sandyloo

don't think that I am ever in danger of 'overfocussing"
6:02 am
sprite

the other un8 is when you have grain and chaff in the same bowl
6:02 am
rubyfoo

over focus? hahahah
6:03 am
sprite

splitting, rubyfoo. I want to shoot a cannonball into the skies and force the rain and thunder down
6:03 am
sandyloo

grain and chaff? have you been feeding a horse sprite?
6:03 am
sprite

lollll just trying to come up with a clue.
6:04 am
rubyfoo

have some more caffeine and enjoy the storm if you can bring it on! I'll send the recipes a little later unless sandy needs them for tonight's dinner
6:04 am
sprite

it is when stuff is mixed and it shouldn't be. You would still have to **** it.
6:04 am
sandyloo

not tonight Ruby, I dont want to over indulge the others
6:04 am
sprite

whenever is convenient for you, rubyfoo.
6:04 am

7:53 am
mrpresident

indeed ruby!
7:54 am

7:55 am
mrpresident

hi kje!!
7:55 am

it's hard to tear myself away but I am so hot! And how about that Cadel Evans, you Aussies!!!! Anybody but Contador would suit me
7:57 am
kje

I would have a hard time living without asian food... especially sushi
7:57 am
rubyfoo

the Chinese food in Geneva is not interesting, either.And I miss sushi more than anything!
7:57 am
mrpresident

I need a spot of Thai, Indian and Chinese during any given month!!
7:57 am
kje

7:57 am

7:57 am

7:58 am
herinfernallady

I have a reallly random question. What do pregnant Japanese women eat if you are not meant to eat Sushi
7:58 am
rubyfoo

please -- uni with quail egg
7:58 am
mrpresident

I make my son sashimi three times a week! He is an addict.
7:58 am
rubyfoo

thaT's a good question, herin, but why can't pregnant women eat sushi?
7:58 am
kje

sorry, no eggs for me, but the uni I will do!
7:58 am
mrpresident

there is a lot of cooked food in sushi
7:59 am
mrpresident

raw fish is a no no for preggers
7:59 am
kje

most of japanese food is cooked, so lots of choices besides sushi
8:00 am
herinfernallady

I love proper Sushi. I hate those sushi places that smell like fish
8:00 am
mrpresident

I love our local sushi train... they make it to order rather than put it on the belt
8:01 am
rubyfoo

if they smell like fish, you should make a u-turn at the door. Good, fresh fish doesn't smell!
8:01 am
mrpresident

indeed ruby!
8:01 am
herinfernallady

exactly. There is 2 fish places that I can't even buy from they smell so bad
8:01 am
rubyfoo

but why,mrp? I was pregnant many years before I had ever tasted sushi, but wonder what is bad about it
8:02 am
rubyfoo

did anybody ever have "dancing shrimp"?
8:02 am
mrpresident

well, there are many foods one shouldn't eat whilst preggers.
8:02 am
rubyfoo

my local sushi chef in NY used to say "Nancy-san, verrry special today"
8:03 am
m9f9l

good morning! how funny..my dd is making sushi this evening for dinner. but not raw fish kind.
8:03 am
mrpresident

raw fish, smoked fish, salami, soft cheese...
8:03 am
mrpresident

I ate it all!!
8:03 am
rubyfoo

I'm glad I didn't know about all that at the time; I ate and drank everything, went to school full time, and had a healthy happy baby
8:03 am

8:04 am
mrpresident

had to look it up: http://tinyurl.com/287x5ok I don't think it was called that but I've had very similar at a thai restaurant
8:06 am
mrpresident

live shrimp!! OMG!
8:07 am
mrpresident

has anyone had a 'worst seafood experience ever'?? as in the presentation of seafood??
8:09 am
herinfernallady

No. I was at a proper Chinese resturant on Friday night I swear they were getting the crabs and fish out of the tanks as we dined
8:09 am
m9f9l

I went to a japanese restaurant once and ordered the octopus...thinking it would be nice tender little guys with veggies.. they brought out plate with one very big octopus. the body sliced in rings and the whole tentacles "artfully" draped about. Even Aiden tried some (she was about 6) but it was overcooked and pretty tough.
8:11 am
mrpresident

mine was in Hongkong... brought out a live lobster, put it on a wooden board and stuck a metal skewer thru it's skull, then sliced it open down the back... it was screaming in the most henious high-pitch scream... I cried.
8:11 am
m9f9l

oh my!
8:12 am
mrpresident

m9, that poor girl! and octopus!!
8:13 am
mrpresident

brb, need to get these darling children to bed ... it is 11pm!
8:14 am
Mr Bob

Hi everybody
8:15 am
herinfernallady

They don't scream that is the sound of the shell escaping. And any decent chef would have knived it in the head
8:15 am
herinfernallady

Hi Mr Bob
8:15 am
m9f9l

what poor girl??
8:15 am
m9f9l

I changed my icon.. adieu Sean...
8:16 am
herinfernallady

I think MR P meant the kid seeing the octopus
8:16 am
m9f9l

I didn't feel like going to other computer and cropping the photo.. but it's pretty mushed up.
8:16 am
herinfernallady

M9 what is Unschooling?
8:16 am
m9f9l

oh Aiden? She was fine. Like I said, she even tried some of it. She's always been pretty game.
8:20 am
m9f9l

herin, it is a form of homeschooling that is similar to the old open classroom concept. Radical unschooling is more of a whole parent philosophy.
8:21 am
herinfernallady

ok
8:22 am
m9f9l

LOL
8:22 am
herinfernallady

Can I ask why you choose Homeschooling?
8:23 am
m9f9l

sure.
8:23 am
m9f9l

school was shutting down my daughter's personality.
8:24 am
m9f9l

we took her out at the end of 3rd grade.
8:24 am
m9f9l

I found unschooling pretty quickly.
8:24 am
herinfernallady

And she is much happier?
8:25 am
m9f9l

after a while my husband said "I don't understand exactly what you're doing... but it's working.. we have our Aiden back"
8:25 am
m9f9l

She's 22... and one of the most amazing individuals you could ever meet.
8:26 am
m9f9l

she just got engaged to a really sweet guy. But most importantly.. she really knows herself and what makes her happy.
8:26 am
m9f9l

which is... vegetables, children, writing, poetry, history, anthropology...etc...
8:27 am
herinfernallady

That is good. I have the highest respect for both parents and teachers
8:27 am
m9f9l

but it was my son who really led me to radical unshooling.LOL
8:27 am
m9f9l

it's very interesting to me how many unschoolers have a background in teaching.
8:28 am
m9f9l

and how many teachers in general end up homeschooling their own children.
8:29 am
m9f9l

grid won't take edam. but now I want some cheese!
8:30 am
m9f9l

and now that I"m actually looking at the grid.... yikes.
8:30 am
herinfernallady

I find it a fascinating idea
8:31 am
m9f9l

there are unschoolers in Australia.
8:31 am
m9f9l

you can read a lot about it at sandradodd.com
8:32 am

8:47 am

I have a feeling this grid is full of words i don't know.
8:47 am
mrpresident

My daughter has been sick for a lot of her schooling this year, and they want her home-schooled
8:48 am
mrpresident

I don't agree with them, cause she is very school orientated. They are negotiating with us now what to do.
8:48 am
m9f9l

what do you mean by school oriented? how old is she?
8:48 am
herinfernallady

But Mr Pres for the time being it may be best rather than repeat.
8:49 am
herinfernallady

Or get them to give her the weeks work at home
8:49 am
mrpresident

she is 12 years old. she loves being at school, she has many many friends there and thrives in the environment
8:49 am
m9f9l

I'm at 38 words and already pretty stuck...
8:49 am
m9f9l

ah. friends. are there homeschoolers around you?
8:50 am
mrpresident

indeed infern, but they can support her with work at home
8:50 am
mrpresident

no m9. this is a very tight knit community of kids
8:50 am
m9f9l

and what are her interests? because being at home can be made very attractive!LOL
8:51 am
mrpresident

she is in selective school too... they just don't want to deal with her being sick
8:51 am
m9f9l

ah.. she'll feel like she's left out.
8:51 am
m9f9l

well pooh on them
8:51 am
mrpresident

no, not left out, she loves learning and being with friends. she is very very bright and sociable
8:51 am
m9f9l

If she is sent all the work and you do it at home I don't see why it would be a prob.
8:52 am
m9f9l

I mean she will if she's at home
8:52 am
mrpresident

that is what we say too!!
8:53 am
herinfernallady

I wish I never had to go to school
8:53 am
m9f9l

yup. it's not for everybody
8:54 am
mrpresident

my son would love to stay home but he HAS to go to school
8:54 am
m9f9l

why?
8:54 am
herinfernallady

I hated school
8:54 am
mrpresident

he has Asperger's Syndrome.
8:55 am
m9f9l

oh well... I see that as a reason to definitely NOT go to school!LOL
8:55 am
mrpresident

too right m9! but he loves being part of a social group.
8:56 am
mrpresident

just doesn't quite know how to deal with it
8:56 am
m9f9l

So take both kids out of school and then be the party house in the afternoons!
8:57 am
m9f9l

smaller, controlled groups for your son...where you can see what he's doing and help him figure out his coping mechanisms... his 'scripts'
8:57 am
m9f9l

they can sleep in...
8:58 am
mrpresident

both kids love school
8:58 am
mrpresident

and love sleeping in! LOL

I can e-mail the pic to you too, NB.
10:30 am
Nancy Boy

Don't worry about it, Judi ;) just a good excuse to come into the chog...
10:32 am
Judi

They're girly peep-toes. So you probably wouldn't consider them for yourself. But they are certainly subject to approval from other Babblers.
10:33 am
Nancy Boy

well, no shoe-shopping for me at all at the moment - I managed to sprain my ankle last night ;) so it'd be one small shoe, one huuuge shoe...
10:34 am
Judi

Uh oh. Too much birthday celebrating? Falling off of curbs?
10:34 am
EvaNadine

i do like the style, judi. still have my heart set on orange, though. ;)
10:34 am

something like that, Judi ;) I fell off a table. Too much birthday celebrating indeed..
10:35 am

Hello, Eva!! :)
10:35 am

S'okay. I thought they looked kind of burnt orangey. Can't remember exactly which shade you wanted.
10:35 am

Fell off table? *laughs*

Hiya, Flosey!
10:38 am
Nancy Boy

oh yeah, my friends finally stopped laughing and scraped me off the floor/took me to A&E ;) the funny thing is, the cats are scared of my crutches..
10:39 am
flosey

ok, that's good, but do try to keep off it as much as possible
10:40 am
Nancy Boy

will do :) my only concern is that I can't really work on crutches, so I'm gonna have to make do and hobble I guess
10:41 am
Judi

Walk on your hands.
10:42 am
Nancy Boy

but then my shirt would fall into my face and I wouldn't be able to see. You have to think these things through!
10:43 am
flosey

you can get a brace to help support your ankle, did they suggest it at ER?
10:44 am
rururocks

but then you would have an aussie perspective NB
10:45 am
Nancy Boy

They did and I got one, Flosey ;) obviously you've done this before..
10:46 am
Nancy Boy

But Ruru, the sight of my rippling six pack would reduce men and women to tears and bring Britain to a standstill. It'd be simply irresponsible.
10:46 am
flosey

yes NB - and it wasn't properly attended to - hosp. gave me crutches but couldn't use them

Morning flosey.

Think we had similar days Haz, although I still have some watering to do and then dinnner.
11:08 am

We'll not know ourselves with no World Cup any more.

Hoping to get a good nights sleep tonight, it has been so hard over the last week.

LOL and YAY no more football! See how restrained I am with the !
11:10 am

Yes, I saw a little bit in the paper saying how sleep was elusive in the heat.
11:10 am

Whever invented them must have made a fortune and should be made to had all the procedes over to everyone that went dearf as a result of them :)
11:10 am

We've managed to have more normal temperatures, though it can still feel humid.
11:11 am

What is making it a little easier is we now have breeezes, which are wonderful.
11:11 am
Haz1558

I know. If the din was bad on TV, imagine what it must have been like in real life.
11:11 am
FMitch

Shame it couldn't have been a more scintilating match to finish it all off.
11:12 am
Haz1558

I didn't watch it at all, but it seems to have been a bad-tempered affair.
11:12 am

Oh where is Ata JBarrowman is on TV.
11:12 am
FMitch

I didn't either but caught the round ups this a.m.
11:12 am
Haz1558

And the octopus was right about the victor.
11:13 am
FMitch

The laws of probablility on that were interesting.
11:13 am
Haz1558

We could save a lot of fuss if they just redid the experiment and declare the winner without a ball being kicked in anger.
11:13 am
FMitch

Do you think he has now been fried and consumed or would he live for another 4 years?
11:14 am
Haz1558

They couldn't possibly do away with an octopus with special powers like that, could they?
11:14 am
Haz1558

I'd have thought it could become a tourist attraction in its own right. Help people to choose lottery numbers, tell people who to marry.
11:15 am
FMitch

ooh lottery numbers, now there is a thought :)
11:15 am
Haz1558

I wonder if it has an agent?

I think I am alright.
11:20 am
redturtlehead

thats what I'm thinking Haz, I must Desist!
11:20 am
Haz1558

If you think you're alright, then you probably are. You'd know if you weren't.
11:20 am
FMitch

and I read that wrong as dentist
11:20 am
redturtlehead

I almost went to try dentist in the grid...
11:21 am
FMitch

*grin*
11:21 am
Haz1558

That's what you'd say if he started hurting you. 'Desist, dentist!'. Except that you couldn't say that with his fingers in your mouth and all the rest of the stuff they put in.
11:22 am
Haz1558

It just comes out as 'AAAAAAAAAARGH'
11:22 am
FMitch

and don't forget the dribble :)
11:24 am

I know, you probably don't dribble as much as you think you do, but it's still a disconcerting feeling.

I'm very glad of it.
12:02 pm
Scrabbler

And are you happy with your new job?
12:04 pm
redturtlehead

I am getting to like it. It definitely was a difficult transition, but, it gets better each day, well except for the actual patients and such.
12:04 pm
redturtlehead

and the pay is so much better, I have been buying all these little luxuries that I avoided in the past, 4.95 for 3 pounds of scented epsom salts...
12:06 pm
Scrabbler

Yes, the study of medicine is more fun + easier than the practice of medicine. So many people really don't want to be helped, or they don't like our advice, or they are irresponsible with their health.
12:06 pm

ok, ready with new icon for tomorrow's grid, be back at flip

Definitely that.

We had a crazy night the other night, computers went down...and at the same time we got a 4 yr old with a trach that was not breahting well.
12:07 pm

BYe Flosey!!!
12:07 pm
redturtlehead

The MD was trying to arrange a flight to the real hospital without any medical records and of course the mother couldnt articulate much about medical history...
12:08 pm
Scrabbler

I saw an 11 yr old with her mother this morning and their was such tension between them. Mother kept saying, "Tell her to brush her teeth, tell her to shower everyday, tell her to not eat MacDonald's food everyday, tell her....." Excuse me, you are with your daughter everyday and you must teach her to be responsible for her health + care.
12:08 pm
Scrabbler

Scary, red.
12:09 pm
redturtlehead

yes, well the kid was OK, but very hard to arrange the appropriate transfer for the MD...he got sort of cranky.
12:09 pm
Scrabbler

He didn't understand your end of things.
12:10 pm
Scrabbler

This is not an easy grid, is it? I have 37 and am struggling.
12:10 pm
redturtlehead

BUt I am sooo proud, at the end of the night, I was tlaking to the charge, and he sai, "How do we erase this night, do we drink or take ambien or what?" I mentioned that I was going to do laps at the pool and he decided to go play basketball instead of the alcohol or sleeping pills...I got a "Fist bump" from him for that. and felt very much like I may have helped his health...
12:11 pm
redturtlehead

no not an easy grid. its sort of one to pick at all day long.
12:11 pm
Scrabbler

Great decisions! So many people self-medicate with alcohol, narcotics, etc.
12:12 pm
redturtlehead

yes, and there is a feeling of pressure to say things like, "who's got the beer" I think Night shifters fall prey to the alcohol in the morning thing too often.
12:13 pm
redturtlehead

I mean there is nothing wrong with an occasional beer wine but at 7 am, i think it's setting one up for disaster.
12:13 pm
Scrabbler

I think any stress gives people an excuse to alter their mind and forget what happened.
12:14 pm
redturtlehead

no kidding. t is hard ot make healthy choices at times, I was so tired yesterday from night shift that I ended up geting a cheesburger from McD's, should have cooked.
12:15 pm

Well, you could have done far worse.
12:15 pm

yes, I wanted a huuuuuge pizza....all 12 slices of it for me!

12:22 pm

Well, the race is about 3-4 hours from him, soooo...I emailed him back telling him that and suggesting a later race in Early September that I want to do near him...
12:22 pm

Go for it, Red! Just make him run in front of you.
12:23 pm
redturtlehead

I do Stid, but I feel very unconfident right now. It makes it difficult for me.

So, just meet for coffee, then. Probably best to avoid competative racing when making first impressions.

12:24 pm
redturtlehead

Oh Judi, he;s much faster than me so no competition there, I can just bask in his fastness...
12:24 pm
stidmama

I do understand this, red. Do you want to do the run? Do you care what the other runners in the race think? I think meeting up sounds like a good thing -- you have something in common; but maybe the pressure of a full-fledged race is too much right now.
12:24 pm
redturtlehead

THe race I suggested has a free day at the zoo attached.
12:24 pm
Judi

Tsk tsk. You want them to run TO you, not away from you.
12:24 pm
redturtlehead

I think that would be much nicer.
12:25 pm
redturtlehead

I'm registered for the race, I just think it's too far for him to drive to run 3 miles...and I'd rather meet and do the Zoo run in September and then see the Zoo!
12:25 pm
Scrabbler

Good plan, Red.
12:26 pm
stidmama

personally, I like zoos!
12:26 pm

2:38 pm
Pinikula

reprimanded for wanting to prove large women could be successful models? are you kidding me? since when is a size 12 LARGE????
2:39 pm
jacq

when the whole world thinks a size o is normal then a 12 is large, until people realise that more than 60% of woemn are at least a uk 14
2:39 pm
Jellen

Doc won't write me a refill prescription for my ADD meds today because I didn't give them 72 hours notice...AUGH!

2:41 pm
ddb4nana

I really hate asking for clues for letter words! I can't find the me 4/5 that comes right after the one that is for what your waiter gives you in a restaurant. It is the second me 4/5. HELP!

2:44 pm
Pinikula

yes, thanks for the waiter clue ;)
2:47 pm
redturtlehead

You do need a new doc Jellen. But if you go to the Emergency room with that request you will likely sit for 6 hours.
2:47 pm

Did Dr God make the Expert jilli? or was it Lickety?
6:16 pm
crosshair

i am dying to see the new babble as i do not use facebook and have seen very little of the new layout
6:16 pm
Jellen

Lickety made Expert...
6:16 pm
CiociaJudy

Bugs, it was Lickety who did Expert.
6:17 pm
crosshair

lickety was such a part of making babble more enjoyable,i hope that dr_god is including him in the new design process
6:20 pm
jillibus

I think Lickety has been in on it, but neither of them actually play babble so may miss some of the ways we use Expert.
6:20 pm
crosshair

well,we have all sent in lots of ideas and imput so im sure it will be fine
6:20 pm
jillibus

The good part is that if all the features we love are included, the Mac people will be able to enjoy them too.
6:21 pm
Bugsaw

Lickety may not be up to making any changes to Expert to make it compatible. I am not a computer person so I just wonder about these things and drive myself nuts
6:21 pm
crosshair

this is also to attract new paying users,so we must be flexable
6:22 pm
jillibus

I have told DrG that I hope the link to morewords will be included, for example. I use it a lot and am so glad I don't have to alt-tab all the time.
6:22 pm
Bugsaw

vry true crossy. I have gotten hours and hours of enjoyment from my one-time payment!
6:22 pm
jillibus

Bugs, I think Lickety is going to be relieved of his babble job.
6:23 pm
crosshair

i think expert as is sits,will be legacy software so to speak,im just hoping dr-god sees all the work lickety has done over the years and maybe includes some of his work in the new set up
6:23 pm
Jellen

And relieved at being relieved!
6:24 pm
jillibus

crossy, DrG has said that heh opes to include *many* of the Expert features.
6:24 pm

that will be nice

lickety does not get near enough kudos
6:25 pm

That's another thing that concerns me about the new layout -- yes, it gives clues, but will they go to a list laid out like Lickety's, so that you know what's missing and where?

Speaking of clues, does anyone need some before I go?

6:55 pm
jillibus

American Standard, with a few extra simple conventions. My partner is a stubborn old lady who will not accept certain common methods but won't let on which ones she objects to, or discuss maters ahead of time. She wants to play the way she did with her late husband, 15 years ago, sigh!
6:55 pm
dcseain

oh, dear, that's difficult.
6:56 pm
Minveryork

Good evening to my fellow babblers! How is everyone?
6:56 pm

if she'd just say to what she objects, it's easy enough to modify play to suit her. sigh.

By the way, congratulations to the finishers! Hooray!
