the ge6 is a rock with jewels inside

gremlinn

jillibus

from? that was supposed to be grem. Guess who's tired!
12:59 am
jillibus

hi dc -- cleverclogs!
12:59 am
gremlinn

it's actually ge5, and ge6 is the plural
12:59 am
gremlinn

Douglas made a pun about this word a week or two ago
1:00 am
jillibus

well, I got the gn6 anyway
1:00 am
dcseain

howdy, jilli grem, flosey, et al
1:00 am

hi dc
1:00 am
dcseain

the cat just spilled 70% of the water out of her drinking fountain to watch the resevoir bottle empty. She is siamese if i don't please!

ty for gn, jilli
1:01 am
gremlinn

there are no finer cats than she am?
1:01 am
jillibus

love that cat, dc!
1:01 am
gremlinn

ge + *** is a poem
1:02 am
jillibus

ok, grem, got that, finally...
1:02 am
dcseain

I do, yet i wish she were less... devious in some ways: spilling the fountain, knocking the phone or papers or book off of what whatever has been set on, etc
1:07 am
jillibus

grem and monkey helped find that ge9 -- thanks
1:08 am
flosey

wtg jilli, not seeing it at all
1:09 am
gremlinn

it sounds like "gee" plus the plural of a great voyage
1:09 am
jillibus

flosey, build on that clue grem gave at 1:01
1:10 am
flosey

I know the rock, can't seem to extend it
1:11 am
gremlinn

it's the plural of a word that ends in -y
1:12 am
jillibus

so I have the 3 9s and the 10, but not a single 8!
1:12 am
flosey

thanks for all clues, I'll leave it and come back tomorrow with a clearer head

ty
1:40 am
dcseain

i-495 is going from 8 lanes total to 12 lanes total, and not a single building is being taken, all within the right-of-way acquired back in 1962.
1:40 am
dcseain

66 will require taking no buildings
1:40 am
VolleymomDee

sure would help though with traffic jams driving around DC on way to Outer Banks :~)
1:40 am
dcseain

95 taking no buildings
1:40 am

1:41 am

1:47 am
VolleymomDee

1:47 am

1:48 am
VolleymomDee

I wish that a perfect job with a kind boss would fall into your lap, seain... and everyone else who is looking. It seems to be so unfair that people don't get to be productive... or at least don't have their industriousness and productivity rewarded.

oatmeal cookies (wheat-free) with home-dried blueberries. very nice. needed more something to bind them. they're a bit more fragile than wheat-oatmeal would be. I have a gluten-free mix that I used with oatmeal...

I think so. I am also hoping to get to the show again... but might let Tom do that one. Wish you could see it, seain. You would really get a kick out of all the work the kids have done. And, I think you would find it compares favorably to adult community theater productions.

6:15 am
herinfernallady

Sandy there is this poor neglected dog and the RSPCA says we ahve to give it back to the owners which is pure and utter b.s as they have the power to seize and remove abused animals the same as the police

that makes me mad!
6:16 am
sandyloo

I dont know why people have animals if they are not going to look after them
6:16 am
herinfernallady

It is so not true as there is powers written into law that can get them to keep the animal. Seems to me they let the animal go back for the sake of rattings

I dont know if this will help. When my mother was a child in Russia she had a Persian cat who disappeared and she came home a month later. My mother told that story over and over to me. Everyone was amazed but there she was bedraggled.
8:38 am
car.eeyore

He had sinus issues the last couple of years...yes, cats get them too! And part of me thinks it was just his time.
8:38 am

I had a big cat like that, Clarissa, who used to sleep on my chest and knead the blanket during the night

I love you all so much and appreciate being able to talk about Reilly here so openly. HOWEVER, I am now beginning to cry and I have so much to do! I am going to refocus and get my work done and then I will be back later. I love you all for being here for me though.

The books are all on sale now, but the ABC book can't sell on amazon because it's a non-standard size... (It's not like it's that strange, either, but for some reason I can't get it into distribution, grumble grumble!)
8:47 am

8:58 am

Yes, Annie, I am fine with personal checks. I've been selling art and books for about ten years now and never had anyone cheat me, so I am a trusting soul.

when I was much younger and very broke, I once painted a store window and didn't get paid. I went around muttering "He should drop dead" (bad Ruby) and when he did, the estate paid me!
8:59 am

The other option is to buy from lulu.com, which can take paypal or credit cards and stuff, and they actually have an offer for free shipping for about 10 more days, I think. (I don't know their policy on international orders, though.)

I thought nummy was just standard baby talk.
Hello, all.
2:02 pm
jmcnrick

i never heard it until i moved in this area
2:03 pm
m9f9l

or at least breast feeding women!LOL so many babies just naturally call it 'num nums" for some reason.
2:03 pm
jmcnrick

hi vic
2:03 pm
m9f9l

My littlest calls breasts "ums"
2:03 pm
dcseain

yes. so did my first child.
2:04 pm
dcseain

my friend's small daughter points and signs 'milk'
2:04 pm
Vicuna

I don't think my kids called them much of anything - I stopped breast-feeding at 1 year and they weren't talking much by then.
2:04 pm
m9f9l

and my littlest knows the proper word.
2:04 pm
m9f9l

but that's what he came up with early and he's sticking to it!LOL

2:08 pm

Yeah, it was a big disappointment, to say the least! lol
2:08 pm
m9f9l

I hardly look at flickr anymore for some reason. I do try and keep up on my one friends photos there.
2:09 pm
m9f9l

My second had thrush, but we were able to clear it up pretty quickly. I swabbed his mouth out with diluted peroxide and myself off a LOT.
2:10 pm

3:21 pm
jmcnrick

i am happy to share expenses
3:21 pm

5:30 on friday? I could try to pick a similar time to arrive
3:21 pm
jmcnrick

3:22 pm

3:22 pm

I can pick you up at the station whenever you arrive pini...
3:22 pm

3:22 pm

i am flying (no kidding!) and will rent a car probably
3:23 pm
jmcnrick

looks like i cannot kidnap lbd though :-(
3:23 pm
Pinikula

I know, jmc...sure wish we could kidnap her!
3:23 pm
jmcnrick

i am to do a workshop of some sort on Sunday at the Friends Meeting with Vets for Peace
3:23 pm
jmcnrick

so where are you going to stay pini?
3:25 pm
Pinikula

Well, stid says flo, jilli, and bugs are sharing a space; stid also mentioned that she has some room at her home; I'm willing to go wherever to assist in costs for myself and/or other babble travelers...
3:25 pm
Pinikula

So, I'll stay at stids or split a room with others...I'm pretty open
3:25 pm
jmcnrick

i haven't heard anything from the folks in Portland so it looks less like I will be doing that.
3:25 pm
jmcnrick

I am flexible too.
3:25 pm
stidmama

I think Little Creek would be comfortable... do you want me to give bugs and jill your emails and they can write and arrange with you two directly?
3:25 pm
jmcnrick

what would you prefer stiddie?
3:26 pm
jmcnrick

sure go right ahead
3:26 pm
jmcnrick

haven't heard from Les either
3:27 pm
stidmama

I think if they need help with expenses (and they might) then sharing with them is a good idea. Otherwise, you are both welcome here. I'll send the email tout-suite and back in a few.
3:27 pm
Pinikula

that sounds good to me, stid ;)
3:28 pm
jmcnrick

warn them i stay up late playing internet games
3:29 pm
Pinikula

JMC, if we both stay at stid's, I can drive and pick you up at PDX (portland or); otherwise, I'll probably take the train up
3:29 pm
Pinikula

(me, too, jmc!)
3:29 pm
Pinikula

maybe jmc and I should "shack up"...night owls that we seem to be
3:30 pm
jmcnrick

hmmm i thought the prevailing wisdom was that i should fly in to seattle
3:31 pm
stidmama

jill is also very much a night owl...

you can use my rig (truck) until Sunday (I have to come home on sunday)...but it would help save on car rental costs (you wouldn't really have to "rent" one until Sunday)...just a thought
3:42 pm

Yay for kje!

that is why I suggested we could car pool up and if you left before I did (there are donors in Portland too so I may just go back there anyway) you could take the train back

8:33 pm
trentsnana

8:34 pm
Pinikula

8:34 pm
dan2bit

I'd say I'm average, for my amount of practice. It's addictive, though :-)
8:34 pm
trentsnana

what does eg9 and sc9 mean?
8:34 pm
featherbee

letterblox anyone?
8:34 pm
dan2bit

ge9 also - a "double plural" of ge5/16
8:35 pm
Pinikula

2 9-ltr words...one starts with eg, the other with sc
8:35 pm
featherbee

trent, click on my picture for a guide
8:35 pm
Pinikula

don't have that one, dan2
8:35 pm
trentsnana

oh, ok
8:35 pm
dan2bit

ge5 is ge + poem
8:35 pm
trentsnana

I have the sc9
8:35 pm
featherbee

however, lickety's list is not working today
8:35 pm
dan2bit

ge6 plural that. ge9 plural the plural, and throw in an extra vowel
8:36 pm
Pinikula

oh, have that one (the 'crystal rock')
8:36 pm
trentsnana

you guys are losing me
8:36 pm
dan2bit

eg9 clue?
8:37 pm
dan2bit

nm found it
8:37 pm
Pinikula

nana, dan2 is giving a clue for the ge5/16 (the first 2 letters, the number of letters, and the point value)
8:37 pm
Pinikula

eg9 = opp of in10
8:37 pm
dan2bit

and therefore the in10 as well :-)
8:37 pm
trentsnana

can tell I'm a newbie
8:37 pm
Pinikula

no worries...we were all there once!
8:38 pm
featherbee

trent, take the ge5. it's a word for a rock, or the other clue was ge + poem. then plural it. then take that word you just made, a ge6, and plural it again, adding an extra vowel in somewhere at the end.
8:38 pm
Pinikula

* still working on the ge9 *
8:39 pm
Pinikula

9:44 pm

tnana, a "babblet" is usually a small word that appears frequently in grids...in this case, ne4 (hawaiian goose)...as you play, you may learn babblets and be able to reference them when used in clues for other words...

Hello wht! How are you doing? Welcome to the puzzle
9:58 pm
wht

can I have a clue for the es7
9:58 pm
Pinikula

the tile stats (below the grid) identifies how many words begin from that particular tile
9:58 pm
m9f9l

they just say how many words originate out of that tile.. and how many of them you've found.
9:58 pm
gremlinn

the 0/3 with the C means that there are 3 words that start on the C tile, and you've found 0 of them. (If it's 1/3, 2/3, or 3/3, it means you've found 1, 2, or all 3 of them.)
