You can fi4,7 someone - as I unwisely joked about doing to our Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1993. If you do, you are not a fi4,7-er, however. Also, you cannot re-peat that act. Better get it right the first time then! ;)

1:44 am

the acro thing is nice though because you don't have to be at computer... something to play with while waiting in line....
1:44 am
Christine

Jillibus, I really am the least savvy when it comes to computers, so how do I find your contacts?
1:45 am
jillibus

I mean in Yahoo, Christine -- you'll see me in JC's contacts -- click on that and "get updates".
1:45 am
J. C.

You go to Jill's page and press the 'Get Updates' button to connect with her, Christine. Then once she accepts, you will have access to view everything in her page, including all her contacts - you won't see them until you're connected.
1:45 am
J. C.

Do that for anyone else you recognise there and wish to be connected with...
1:46 am
J. C.

Ah - are you two connected already? :)
1:46 am

The third update down from the top, Christine - there's the link. Have you seen the photo?

Yes. Yet another 'room with a view', m9. Incidentally, Noël Coward wrote that about a view from a room in his home at the time - which is now my house. Another coincidence, besides his being gay and an entertainer is that we're both originally from Teddington.

Ah, yes. Taffy...
2:12 am
J. C.

He does that just to be annoying. :P
2:15 am
m9f9l

my husband always told me that nothing is as terrifying as being sworn at in Welsh. Guess it loses something if it's in writing.LOL (and if you're not a little kid being yelled at by your grandfather)
2:17 am
jillibus

ugh -- 30 re words
2:17 am
J. C.

Ah, yes. The non-Welsh speaking Taffies will try to tell you there are no swear words in Welsh, that Welsh is too 'pure' a language. Don't believe it for a moment - Steve swears up a storm in Cymraeg. :P
2:17 am
J. C.

And tells me what all the bad words mean. ;)

hi Rolin
2:41 am
Haz1558

Hello, lynxxx.
2:42 am
lynxxx

hi Haz.
2:42 am
Haz1558

We finally got a longer puzzle.
2:42 am
lynxxx

A reward for my good days work
2:42 am
Haz1558

Oh, so you're taking the credit?
2:43 am
Haz1558

What did you do to deserve it?
2:43 am
lynxxx

I deserve it! on my hands and knees scraping back layers of paint
2:44 am
Haz1558

I'll not argue with that! All those programmes showing instant renovations just don't cut it when you're in the midst of doing it yourself.
2:48 am
lynxxx

I always seem to do the prep, not sure how/why that happens. Although I do remember my husbands efforts in our first house armed with a blow torch and scraper - scary...and to top it all off with a circular sander. Those circles always showed through. Maybe I think I can do a better job - certainly not faster though
2:50 am
Haz1558

I know what you mean about the blow torch! I remember my father using one and being convinced that the house was going to go on fire. Preparation takes far longer than you ever think it's going to but it is worth it in the end. Make sure you get your fair share of the glory at the end of the project!
2:52 am
lynxxx

No problems with that
2:53 am
Haz1558

Are the layers of paint ones that you administered or have you inherited them from previous occupiers of the house?
2:55 am
lynxxx

Inherited - problem was that the quick paint job they did to tart up the house for sale involved using water base paint over original oil on all the woodwork - including multi panelled glass doors. The slightest hit/scrap meant that it peeled off
2:56 am
Haz1558

So the proof is there - no preparation = bad job = lynxxx on her hands and knees getting things right.
2:57 am
Haz1558

Will we get nice big grids for every day you're scraping?
2:58 am
lynxxx

I'll see what I can do. Did you see that DrG seems to be back on the revamp of Babble again
2:59 am
Haz1558

No - updates on facebook pass me by, I'm afraid. What's the latest?
2:59 am
flosey

l87/122 I'm off to bed, goodnight all
3:00 am
Haz1558

Goodnight, flosey.

A brag book sounds weird, you're right! Thanks for the link, I'll look it up. And now I must disappear to get ready for a dentist's appointment. Just a check up and he's a nice dentist so it should be fine. See you later and enjoy 'your' grid!

How silly - I've got a gardening thing and forgot to bring it in. TY
3:18 am
rubyfoo

if you can believe it, I've ruined my knees just being on the floor petting dogs for an hour a day, 7 years!
3:19 am
rubyfoo

unfortunately, they are too big to pick up
3:21 am
lynxxx

I do miss cuddling a dog. Not only is Stew too big to pick up but he is too bony - and hates being cuddled/constricted. Does enjoy sharing a bed or couch though
3:22 am
sprite

morning all. Too bad you didn't go sit on your bottom all those years, rubyfoo :(
3:22 am
rubyfoo

of course, you're right, I cuddle Ruby as much for me as for her, but it is ruining my knees!

3:26 am
jhb

Oops - sorry. I got carried away and forgot to move the cursor back. But I know you all have that easy one anyway.
3:26 am
jhb

Sure can sprite.
3:26 am
rubyfoo

is gfood a portmanteau word?
3:26 am
rubyfoo

I didn't, so thank you, jhb
3:27 am
rubyfoo

like eating crow? but laughing
3:27 am
sprite

it may be childish but am having so much fun about this, lolll
3:27 am
jhb

And I will get a telling off from my Big sister if she is on tonight. And yes ruby farce can be pretty funny but you need lots of good red to wash it down.
3:27 am
rubyfoo

I love this grid!
3:28 am
jhb

How many words do I have to get tonight?
3:28 am
sprite

3:28 am

3:31 am
jhb

I guess had too much red tonight ruby but enjoying the chat anyway. And you see my sister cant type/spell either. See asks Joh is everyone.
3:32 am
Christine

Sprite -- you remembered our chat about names and my distaste for abreviations.
3:32 am
rubyfoo

oh, night! you must be a big partier!!!
3:32 am
sprite

it runs in the family, I see, lolol
3:32 am
jhb

Think I'll give it up tonight - spelling gone to the dogs and I really didn't have any red with dinner.
3:32 am
rubyfoo

so you are sisters! how lovely
3:32 am
rubyfoo

I wish my sister would get a computer
3:32 am
sprite

I did, Christine!
3:33 am
jhb

So sprite - are you claiming sistership with Christine?
3:33 am
sprite

huh? No, that would be your job, jhb. I can only claim babble friendship.
3:34 am
Christine

I posted earlier that I was in and out of Babble from the flip at 10pm until about 6:30am. That's really too much time on the computer, and I'm gonna cut down ... but I don't know when.
3:34 am
Christine

I really enjoy the chat as much/ more than the game.
3:35 am
sprite

chat here is often great. Wonderful people.
3:36 am
rubyfoo

I used to love the original scrabulous. Then it eroded to lexulous. now the format has changed and I don't like it any more
3:36 am
rubyfoo

the chat here is much better and more interesting. We all share more, much of it really interesting and helpful information
3:37 am
rubyfoo

and the emotional support is a marvel; many of us need it from time to time
3:38 am
sprite

I like it that sometimes the chat is deep and meaningful, and another time it is funny or even hilarious. And I like it that by far most people are kind and caring here... and intelligent.
3:38 am
rubyfoo

this game is much harder than scrabble
3:38 am
rubyfoo

yes, and frequently it is the only funny spot in the whole day!
3:39 am
sprite

only if you want to finish grids, grin.
3:39 am
jhb

I am delighted to have stumbled across such a caring community. People helping each other whether kind words or a laugh it is genuine friendship.
3:40 am
sprite

yes, for a virtual community this one is really amazing.
3:40 am
rubyfoo

sallyds recommended it to me, but I never see her in the chat. I think she is a sweet, shy lurker! {{sallyds wherever you are}}
3:41 am
rubyfoo

and even in the short time I've been part of it, we have had our share of tragedies and a few joyous things.
3:41 am
rubyfoo

and there is a lost of very good-natured jo**ing
3:41 am
sprite

I'd really wish more of the shy lurkers would chat... they really don't know how welcome they are, to either talk a lot or just drop an occasional line. I love meeting more of us.
3:42 am
rubyfoo

and look whose pup is in here again; sprite is very well connected!!!!
3:42 am
sprite

lol, he is 20 months now, don't let him hear you ;)
3:43 am
Lilecama

hello all! just caught you're last chat sprite... How do you know there ARE lurkers?
3:43 am
Christine

How did y'all find Babble? I read a blog "Chocolate & Zucchini" and the blogger mentioned playing wjhen she lived US. That was back in 2004, and I've been in and out since then. Then Judith & Marianne came in, then we were off for a while, but I'm hoping Otherr Sister can find time to join us.
3:44 am
rubyfoo

hello lilecama! Every now and then a lurker will say "Fireworks"
3:44 am
sprite

hi Lile! Because much more people play than chat, as proven by the rankings.
3:44 am
jhb

There must be loads of lurkers. Look at who's online.
3:44 am
rubyfoo

after we've been babbling and babbling for hours
3:44 am
sprite

Christine, I was told about it by ConXshun, who still plays now and again but hardly ever chats.
3:45 am
lynxxx

You can look at Who's OnLine tab above too...though that will also show all the Babblers who don't log off at all (like me)

3:46 am
rubyfoo

I tried it twice!
3:46 am
lynxxx

the last word Ruby
3:46 am
sprite

I have to be firm about it, jhb, or chaos will ensue... but the PB is actually a great place to be. Stocked up the cupboards and fridge myself this morning.
3:46 am

grin rubyfoo... other word
3:47 am
rubyfoo

hahahah I didn't even see that. And still wouldn't have. So thanks, lynxx, and sorry for putting my foot in it again
3:47 am

Oh alright and I have to admit I got caught - I put the word into the grid after seeing it. Embarrassed grin!
3:47 am

Well done :)

3:55 am
jhb

Yes please. Lemon and giner if you have it.
3:55 am
rubyfoo

I would love one, thank you, with milk please
3:55 am
rubyfoo

giner?
3:55 am
jhb

Golly that spirit is in here again - it should be ginger.
3:56 am
rubyfoo

or maybe you meant gin, like a hot toddy of sorts
3:56 am
sprite

you know, jhb, we babblers can read through occasional typos like nobody's business! Don't worry about it.
3:57 am
jhb

Yes but I did train as a Secretary many moons ago. Should be able to type
3:57 am
sprite

lemon, gin and ginger? As my not so dear father would say, you can make sh4 taste good with all that.
3:57 am
sprite

you are able to type. Just not always perfectly, in chat... like most of us, grin.
3:57 am
jhb

Very good sprite and he was probably right
3:57 am
rubyfoo

3:59 am
rubyfoo

104 painless words. Now it will probably get harder.....
3:59 am

Lovely talking to you all. See you tomorrow maybe. Good luck with the grin, grin and the gin. See how cleaver this babbler is- changes words by changing letters.

7:27 am
Mom

7:28 am
Christine

Oh boy, this was to be a night thaat I didn't stay on the computer - signed on at 11pm, and it's now almost 5:30am. In and out of Babble, blogs and business. I could've not retired if I wanted to put in this much time on the computer.
7:28 am
jmcnrick

7:28 am
Mom

7:32 am
Christine

I don't sleep much, but since my time's my own, I could nap if I'm sleepy.
7:34 am
Haz1558

Yes, but it has a capital letter because it's associated with the continent. (I'll stand up for enable, nobody else will)
7:34 am
jmcnrick

and nobody else will haz!
7:34 am
Haz1558

And good morning/afternoon/why aren't you in bed Christine?/all.
7:35 am
jmcnrick

hi haz
7:35 am
Haz1558

I know, I'm a lone voice for enable. I don't know that I'd run for office on that ticket, though.
7:36 am
jmcnrick

not many votes for you in this crowd if you did
7:36 am
jmcnrick

but I would support a save the ! ticket
7:37 am
Mom

good afternoon Haz, thanks for that information.
7:37 am
Atalante

7:37 am
Mom

Hello Atalante, how are you doing?
7:37 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, Mom.

7:38 am
Haz1558

Hello, Ata!
7:38 am
jmcnrick

hi ata
7:38 am
Atalante

I deserve exclamation marks today cos I finally get to have a shower and a change of clothes!
7:38 am
jmcnrick

well congrats!
7:39 am
Mom

that is excellent news Ata
7:39 am
Haz1558

Good for you!
7:39 am
Atalante

and that makes me very very happy
7:39 am
jmcnrick

I understand no shower after surgery but a little baffled about not being able to change clothes
7:39 am
Atalante

amazing how much difference a shower can make
7:39 am
Haz1558

You probably have disappointed Hobbit, you probably had much more of an interesting odour before.
7:40 am
Atalante

that was just it hurting too much to pull stuff over legs!
7:40 am
Atalante

Hobbit's flopped on the big chair by the window, and a few minutes ago a big pile of cushions cascaded onto her from the back of the chair. Did she move? Not an inch. Kept snoring away buried under the pile.
7:40 am
jmcnrick

ah! well that makes sense -- not hurting so much now?
7:41 am
jmcnrick

probably nice and dark and cozy under the pillows
7:41 am
Atalante

and easier without about 6 foot of crepe bandage wrapped round my leg!
7:42 am
Vicuna

Hello, Everyone!
7:42 am
Vicuna

I haven't seen you for ages, Ata!
7:42 am
Haz1558

Hello, Vicuna!
7:43 am
Mom

have to scoot out of here. So glad to see all of you today. Hi Vicuna
((Hugs)) to all of you
7:43 am

7:43 am

Do I want to start this grid?
7:43 am
Haz1558

Bye, Mom.
7:43 am
Vicuna

Hello and goodbye, Mom.
7:43 am
Mom

bye bye, Haz
7:43 am
Haz1558

Of course you do, Vi, that's if you can move after the onslaught of !! landing on you.
7:43 am
jmcnrick

not if you want a life today vic
7:43 am
Mom

bye bye, Vicuna
7:44 am
jmcnrick

*sweeps up !!s to recycle*
7:44 am
Haz1558

jmc is my kind of woman.
7:44 am
Vicuna

I do sort of need to have a life today... at least, if you count dressing up for the 1850's and accompanying daughter's class trip as a "life."
7:44 am
jmcnrick

:-)
7:44 am
jmcnrick

sounds fun
7:45 am
Vicuna

Should be interesting. We have a one room schoolhouse in town and the class is going there to find out what life would have been like in 1855.
7:47 am
jmcnrick

well i give up for this morning -- can't even get nbt and have lots of work ahead of me
7:47 am
Anniebrook

I stepped away to wash breakfast dishes and come back to find that Ata is going to have a shower, congrats(!)...dont look Haz and hi to Vicuna
7:47 am
jmcnrick

see you all later
7:47 am
Anniebrook

bye jmc..get it all done
7:47 am
Atalante

hi Annie!
7:47 am
Vicuna

Goodbye, jmc! <- (recycled)
7:48 am
Vicuna

And hello, Annieb!
7:48 am
Haz1558

Hello, Annie, bye jmc.
7:48 am
Haz1558

Gosh, even I wasn't alive in the 1850s. No babble for starters.
7:48 am
Vicuna

(What is this "wash dishes" of which you speak?)
7:49 am
Atalante

there might have been .... if you weren't alive then, how do you know?
7:49 am
Anniebrook

I have been using my hoard of !'s sparingly...Vicuna, you must remember, think back, soap, water, scrub>
7:49 am
Atalante

boggle, at least
7:49 am
Anniebrook

?
7:50 am
Vicuna

Easy, ATa. If there had been such a thing as Babble, then none of the inventions or technological advancements would ever have happened, because everyone would have been Babbling all day instead.
7:50 am
Haz1558

Well, I suppose there might have been an elementary form of babble. Slates and pencils and smoke signals for the chat log.
7:51 am
Atalante

10 letter words would have taken a long time to clue
7:51 am
FMitch

I hate to be the party pooper but di6/24 is in the grid off you go Annie and Vi dear.
7:51 am
Vicuna

I think the nearest equivalent must have been a quilting bee.
7:51 am
FMitch

and greetings all :)
7:51 am
Vicuna

lol, hello, FM! Does it still count if I'm not even doing the grid?
7:51 am
Atalante

*giggle* poor Vi and Annie
7:52 am
Haz1558

Yes, 10 letter words would have been hard, especially if they had to be reclued. Disagreements would have resulted in a lot of choking through the clouds of smoke.
7:52 am
Haz1558

Hello, FM!
7:52 am
Anniebrook

Hi FM!
7:52 am
MollyL

*Sneaks chocolate to Annie and Vi in the penalty box*
7:53 am
FMitch

LOL and Hi Molly
7:53 am
Vicuna

(Thanks, MollyL!)
7:53 am
Vicuna

At least they didn't know at the time that smoking is bad for you.
7:54 am
Atalante

maybe semaphore would have worked
7:54 am
Anniebrook

thanks Molly as I slink off to the PB....I knew washing di6 was bad for you or good if you get to munch on chocolate
7:55 am
FMitch

This grid is a bit of a bind today :(
Hows the knee today Ata, a bit easier?
7:55 am
Atalante

my phantom today is dentifrice
7:55 am
Haz1558

Yes, all those wee flags waving merrily.
7:55 am
Anniebrook

Vic, I love the print of the paper birch trees in your flickr photos
7:55 am
Vicuna

Oh, thanks, Annieb! =)
7:56 am
Vicuna

I think we'd have to wear little Bloomer outfits the better to dance about with our arms waving as we clue each other.
7:56 am
MollyL

This is a great grid for anyone who has a sh 4/5 fe 6/30.
7:57 am
Vicuna

lol, MollyL. Two days in a row now.
7:57 am
Atalante

but no corsets today
7:57 am
Atalante

ooooops
7:57 am
Atalante

7:58 am
Atalante

I just noticed!
7:58 am
MollyL

Y'all save some of that chocolate for Ata.
7:58 am
Vicuna

(Hands Ata an entire brick of chocolate for that one.)
7:59 am
Anniebrook

sorry, I ate all the chocolate
7:59 am
MollyL

I'm starting to wonder about the grid master. I'm expecting "garter" and "belt" to be in tomorrow's grid.
7:59 am
Haz1558

It has to be the after effects of anaesthesia, no other explanation for the drop in Ata's level of genius.
7:59 am
Atalante

I think so
7:59 am
FMitch

and where you went this morning is in the grid Haz :)
8:00 am
Haz1558

And I'm happy to report no treatment is needed.
8:00 am

splendid.
8:01 am
Haz1558

I cringe when he's going over the treatments I've had already, but am always happy to hear 'sound' for some.
8:01 am
Atalante

keep going with the dentifrice
8:02 am

dentifrice is a phantom today

8:03 am

8:09 am

8:16 am
Atalante

yep, there's a warm pipe running through it
8:16 am
Haz1558

Right, must just take a break to run a few errands. Back shortly, hopefully.
8:16 am
Atalante

she has to jump up onto the worksurface, then up to the boiler
8:16 am
Atalante

she stays there for hours
8:16 am

that would do it

Any of our French amies here today? Just wondering how they're getting along with all the stikes going on.

Hello, mrswhiski. It's because we've got a decent size of a grid to tackle.

Strikes (dammit).
9:29 am

stikes sounded more inventive!
9:30 am
Haz1558

What amuses me is that it's not the old people who are revolting because they're putting the pension age up. No, it's the teenagers who aren't going to be affected for decades.
9:30 am
Atalante

I think they just like revolting
9:31 am
Haz1558

It's in their DNA. What was good enough for Robespierre is good enough for them.
9:31 am
Judi

*snort* True. I think the young ones are protesting just because they have nothing better to do.
9:31 am
NonoNanette

they are protesting having to work longer when they dont want to work at all

if that!
9:33 am

I know several Americans who would be happy to have their jobs.
9:34 am
72 Temple Owl

really. americans work more hours than any other country
9:34 am
Haz1558

The French military, you mean, or just French jobs in general?

Odd really, since they have a reputation for showing up late (or not at all) to most revolutions.

returement age here is 65 for those gong now, rising to 67

Sigh. I can't retire until I'm 68 - or until I hit the lottery.

I think the French retirement age is currently 60 rising to 62 - is that correct, Ata?

first I can't right click does that matter?
11:20 am
crosshair

both jellen and nono have faster computers and are ahead of me now in the scoring lists,so it is all good and all for a great cause
11:21 am
crosshair

is the icon in yout task bar on the bottom of the screen westford?
11:21 am
westford

second does my computer have to stay on at all times?
11:21 am
crosshair

looks like a bunch of baloons
11:21 am
westford

I haven't downloaded it yet
11:21 am

is it Apple friendly?
11:21 am
crosshair

well load it and no,it remembers your place and you can turn it on and off as you wish
11:21 am

it has a apple client on the download page
11:22 am
crosshair

and linux as well
11:22 am
westford

my computer is usually just asleep when I'm not using it
11:23 am
crosshair

you will see 3 different mac clients
11:23 am

then that is the perfect time for folding,if you leave it running all the time
11:23 am
crosshair

i shut mine off at night,but jmc runs hers 24/7
11:24 am
westford

so asleep is like it is running?
11:24 am

11:24 am

11:24 am

see how much I don't know?
11:25 am
crosshair

just in power save or sleep mode
11:25 am

just leave the folding program running and it will do mthe work while you sleep
11:25 am

do a test run when he is working,and he he notices a lag,then just right click the folding icon and close the program,and just run it when it does not conflict with his work

Yesterday I tried to tell people on wordsplay.net about babble but I mis-wrote the link as babble.com, and all they found was a site about babytalk.

Problematical sleeper, without meds

i dont like how i feel im the morning after i take something
11:40 am
Kaplan the Magne

Do you think there is a Grid Creator, or does it all come about by accident, in a Big Bang?
11:41 am
jmcnrick

i suspect there is a computer program
11:41 am
bethn

i think it evolved from monkeys with tyoewriters
11:41 am
Kaplan the Magne

But does the Computer Program care about us, or is it too busy with the universe?
11:42 am
Kaplan the Magne

I think Beth is right. We are proof.
11:42 am
Kaplan the Magne

Now that that is settled, can we teach Babble in the public schools?
11:42 am
Kaplan the Magne

Or is it "just a theory?"
11:43 am
bethn

i think we are part of someones experiment. "If i assemble a grid with made up words will they come?"
11:44 am
Kaplan the Magne

Isn't our administrator called Dr. God?
11:44 am
jmcnrick

Dr. God uses Enable to pick the words
11:44 am
jmcnrick

I think it is sprite who has discussion about Enable
11:44 am
bethn

no public school teaching, they aren't big on spelling anymore so it would be hard t use morewords
11:44 am
jmcnrick

Dr. God is very nice
11:44 am
Kaplan the Magne

Is Enable like the archangels, then?
11:45 am
Kaplan the Magne

But sometimes Dr. God is wrathful?
11:45 am
bethn

the fallen angel maybe
11:45 am
bethn

see the red box of death
11:45 am
jmcnrick

no I think it is the other way around because Dr. God follows what enable says
11:45 am
Kaplan the Magne

See what happens when my sleep gets screwed up? I'll shut up now.
11:46 am
jmcnrick

I think the red box of death is like the rain that falls on teh just and the unjust
11:46 am
Kaplan the Magne

I made people mad on wordsplay when I responded to the "Tea party Revolution" with -yeah, the Tea Party is Revolting, all right
11:46 am
jmcnrick

Dr. God is wrathful to trolls!
11:46 am
jmcnrick

*giggle*
11:47 am
Kaplan the Magne

If people don't want politics in games they shouldn't name their team Tea Party.
11:47 am
jmcnrick

there is always a risk in talking politics
11:47 am
Kaplan the Magne

Anyway, trolls are like idolators. To continue the metaphor.
11:47 am
jmcnrick

maybe they were referring to the Mad Hatter's tea party?
11:47 am
Kaplan the Magne

Or- gasp- Satan. Satanic trolls!
11:48 am
bethn

is the red box of death indivual punishment? when i get it do you? am i alone in my despair or is it a universal plague on all our houses?
11:48 am
Kaplan the Magne

The Mad Hatter's tea party is most apt.
11:48 am
jmcnrick

satanic trolls-- most trolls would reveal in that title
11:48 am
Kaplan the Magne

reveal and revel too.
11:48 am
jmcnrick

the red box of death only means that either your computer or Dr. Gods computer glitched
11:49 am
jmcnrick

sorry you are right revel!
11:49 am
jmcnrick

i never could spell
11:49 am
Kaplan the Magne

Is the grid random, or is there some intelligent design?
11:49 am
jmcnrick

i joined the spelling club in Jr HS in the hopes of taking their challenges I would learn but alas. . .
11:50 am
Kaplan the Magne

I can spell, but can't do basic math.
11:50 am
bethn

how can i possibly have 73 left?
11:50 am
Kaplan the Magne

Anything with numbers gives me hives.
11:50 am
jmcnrick

It is clearly not completely random as there will often be words going from one grid to the next day
11:50 am
Kaplan the Magne

Therefoer no sudoku
11:50 am
jmcnrick

i can do arithmetic in my head
11:50 am
bethn

truly meaning of life questions being addressed here today
11:51 am
Kaplan the Magne

I've noticed that. But is that just coincidence?
11:51 am
jmcnrick

you could find a sudoku game with letters or symbols kap
11:51 am
Kaplan the Magne

Ah, yes.
11:51 am
Kaplan the Magne

That's all I need, jm.
11:51 am
jmcnrick

it is good for the true meaning of babble to be addressed from time to time
11:51 am
jmcnrick

it happens too often to be a coincidence
11:52 am
Kaplan the Magne

At this high minded point, I should really go and get dressed. It is almost time for my soap opera.
11:52 am
jmcnrick

there is probably a pattern of which letters are used and that leads to the repetition of words
11:52 am
bethn

i think there is a somewhat orderly progression of gridded letters that the program spews out thus the duplicate words on consecutive days, i think it rotates , or adds a letter or some such nonesense
11:52 am
Kaplan the Magne

You don't think the letters just don't get juggled in the little plastic box?
11:52 am
bethn

you can watch soaps in your jammies kap
11:53 am
Kaplan the Magne

:)
11:53 am
jmcnrick

i think you are right bethn but i haven't taken the effort to track the pattern
11:53 am
jmcnrick

lol i never hear the rattling at the flip kap
11:53 am
Kaplan the Magne

I believe it is random, and it is we humans who "see" the pattern.
11:54 am
Kaplan the Magne

I think it's heuristics.
11:54 am
bethn

it would be too easy to lose the letters or the whole box, (at least in my house) so i don't think that particular theory holds water
11:55 am
Kaplan the Magne

Then we tell ourself stories to explain the randomness, and imagine we see consistencies that are not there. The idea of chaos is overwhelming to humans.
11:55 am
jmcnrick

even random with computers is not completely random
11:55 am
Kaplan the Magne

The plastic boxes are only for the 4x4.
11:56 am
Kaplan the Magne

Maybe Dr God sits there thinking- hmm, I haven't given them crwth in a while.
11:56 am
Kaplan the Magne

In the Tower of Babel, did they play Babble?
11:56 am
bethn

i keep looking for atlatl on of my favorite words
11:57 am
jmcnrick

what does that mean bethn?
11:57 am
Kaplan the Magne

The Tower of Babble. In Babbleonia.
11:58 am
jmcnrick

my favorite word will never be on the grid = re = an australian sandpiper
11:58 am
bethn

it is a throwing stick used by aboriginals you put a spear in one end and fling it, and somehow the extra length of the atlatl increases the torque and makes it go far and fast
11:58 am
jmcnrick

*brews up some cocoa for kap*
11:59 am
Kaplan the Magne

I guess you want me to stop babbling...

12:00 pm

yes bethn if you think about it as a stick projecting out from the center of a circle
12:00 pm
Kaplan the Magne

"iim not entirely poofed yet. Why are you oopsing? cocoa is not in the grid.

isn't it amazing that ancient cultures could figure that out without knowing why

if said accountant is not there, write the revenue office with all that you told us (including that accountant has disappeared) -- odds are they have that accountant in their sights

1:19 pm
varumba

1:20 pm
jmcnrick

well you can learn basics if you want and not be quite so intimidated
1:20 pm
varumba

it's the fact that you're not allowed to make a mistake that unnerves me.... you pay fines if you make a mistake.... and then the jargon they use is completely foreign to poor lil me....lol...... Bah, i'll sleep on it and start thinking clear in a day or so ;)
1:21 pm
varumba

you know what? I think I should..... although i wouldn't need it now, as no more business.. just employed... but what you said makes perfect sense: get rid of the unknown!

1:24 pm
varumba

ce7/32 = ce6/21 before + a consonant
1:25 pm
varumba

ce7 /36 sry
1:25 pm
varumba

and ce6/21 = like the first ce6/21 but change the last vowel into the plural letter

yikes bethn!
1:33 pm
bethn

really sorry, didnt realize parot was on keyboard while was on phone
1:33 pm

hope you have a keyboard cover!LOL
1:34 pm
bethn

i think he jumps up and down on it now that i have covered the keys so he cant eat them
1:34 pm
jmcnrick

*gets out sanitize wipes*
1:34 pm
melissamay

Which is actually interesting to me and something I wonder about -- how do other people do the puzzle. I go square by square starting at the left top, and then use lickety's list to go in alpha order to pick up what I missed. I think it is all the crosswords I used to do with my grandma that makes me a creature of habit that way.
1:35 pm
bethn

i had to get a "skin" he ate 4 keyboards before i realized they made such an item
1:35 pm
jmcnrick

i let words jump out at me while I try for a start of nbt
1:35 pm
melissamay

Aw, your parrot said hello beth!
1:35 pm
varumba

i usually try to find all the words starting with the same tile, so i start with the tiles that have the lowest number of words.....
1:35 pm
jmcnrick

then i go back to letting words jump out at me until i can stand it anymore and go to lickety which i go from top to bottom then bottom to top
1:36 pm
Jellen

I'm methodical in trying to get nbt, thereafter completely random, until I get halfway...
1:36 pm
varumba

then i move on to tiles with more words.... and when i've gone aroudn them all and don't know anymore which word i've entered, that's when i use lickety, going alphabetically too
1:36 pm
cosdem

clue for af 6/30?
1:36 pm
sadie52

hello all
1:36 pm
m9f9l

first I go tile by tile just seeing what comes quickly.. going for nbt. Then I concentrate on the ones that just stumped me. Then I watch the chog for ones I may have missed of the longer words for nbs.
1:36 pm
varumba

hi sadie
1:36 pm
melissamay

Ok, please don't think I am dumb, but I have wondered this for ages -- what does nbt stand for?
1:36 pm
bethn

i start i upper left and go down. then 2nd column from left then 3rd etc. i try to get into the 30 or 40s before i list then i list from z back to a

1:37 pm

1:38 pm
sadie52

1:38 pm
jmcnrick

1:38 pm
m9f9l

Hulu has the ed sullivan show. One of them is great moments in opera. wow......

1:38 pm
bethn

oa9 stupid compound word

1:39 pm
m9f9l

take a cons out of that compound word for another oa.
1:39 pm
melissamay

I adore Hulu -- if you don't mind a bit of swearing I suggest watching "Black Books" which is one of the funniest shows I've seen in ages.
1:39 pm
varumba

lol beth, i tried : oafidiot... but nope ;)
1:39 pm
jmcnrick

i guess you just weren't on at the right time when explained to newbies melissa
1:39 pm
sadie52

Also *a lot* of swearing for the Louis CK show. And uncomfortable moments.
1:40 pm
jmcnrick

i saw the funniest video of all last night: Proposition 8: the musical

1:40 pm
jmcnrick

1:40 pm
cosdem

pb is like the garden of the gods :)
1:40 pm

jmcnrick

naugh because all your friends will think it is quite reasonable
1:42 pm
sadie52

I just say "you two know each other? I hope?"
1:43 pm
bethn

that is why old ladies call everybody dear
1:43 pm
jmcnrick

well when anyone introduces me these days I offer my name before there can be any confusion
1:43 pm
jmcnrick

certainly part of it bethn
1:43 pm
bethn

i find darlin friendlier
1:43 pm
melissamay

ha ha ha ha! That's why I call everyone Miss Fabulous or whatever. I hope they're not on to me!
1:44 pm
cosdem

carnies should be a word
1:44 pm
jmcnrick

but watch that "old lady" appellate
1:44 pm

1:44 pm

The internet only makes it worse -- half of my friends I think of as their avatar name before their real one.
1:44 pm

I always ask about family in general
1:44 pm
varumba

thank god for more words..... found that 9 ;)
1:45 pm
melissamay

Ah, the all-purpose dude. Always a lifesaver.
1:45 pm
jmcnrick

oh that is the down si** of babble meet ups -- I get confused as to whom I am speaking
1:45 pm
Jellen

Duuude...
1:45 pm
bethn

morewords is right there next to cleanliness in the hierarchy of good things
1:45 pm
jmcnrick

if fact I called pini pini during the Westcoast meet up
1:45 pm
melissamay

Duuuuude....
1:45 pm
sadie52

1:46 pm
bethn

kids wont let me use dude the laugh and point fingers
1:46 pm
jmcnrick

i always feel like i am cheating using morewords
1:46 pm
melissamay

Interesting, I've never been to a meetup, but I've been to ones for another site and the same thing happens.
1:46 pm
phaeton

es---
1:46 pm
varumba

i know, but if i didn't, i wouldn't finish the grid! OR, i'd be asking for clues again and again.... and would annoy you all :D
1:47 pm
jmcnrick

well we are having dinner af*** the Colbert/Stewart rallies in DC melissa
1:47 pm
phaeton

fill in the blanks! :-D
1:47 pm
sadie52

if I didnt use morewords I'd rarely finish a puzzle
1:47 pm
bethn

i use morewords when all else fails. i used it for 2 words today
1:47 pm
melissamay

I don't use morewords only because I can't figure out how to do so. My little cheat is to try words in google or dictionary.com to see if they are actually real.
1:47 pm
jmcnrick

I don't think other people are cheating using it varumba -- just me
1:48 pm
jmcnrick

i think people should use what makes the grid give them joy instead of frustration
1:48 pm
melissamay

Very cool jmcnrick, I am unfortunately on the wrong coast! I would *love* to go to the rally/meetup. Oh man.
1:48 pm
jmcnrick

morewords is fairly simple melissa
1:48 pm
Jellen

brb...
1:48 pm
jmcnrick

you put in the letters you know and then a - for every letter you do not know and then it will post the options
1:49 pm
jmcnrick

hb jell
1:49 pm
bethn

it is in the resources box at the top of the page melissa, click on ti, and put in the letters you have followed be the appropriate # of - to fill in the blank letters a list will come up
1:49 pm
varumba

oh it's ok jms, i try not to use it: only use it when i can't monkey the missing words ;)
1:49 pm
bethn

snap
1:49 pm
bethn

phone again back later
1:50 pm
melissamay

Ah, see I was somehow under the impression that you plugged in all the words on the grid and it generated a massive list. Which makes absolutely no sense, in retrospect.
1:50 pm
jmcnrick

well I am sure that the westcoast babblers are going to break down soon. they are getting increasingly jealous of the east coast babblers who meet about once a month or so
1:50 pm
jmcnrick

hb bethn

no morewords works best in conjunction with the list
1:50 pm

1:53 pm

1:57 pm
m9f9l

nice! I saw Pavarotti in Seattle once.
1:57 pm
jmcnrick

1:57 pm
melissamay

I do see pini at night often though!
1:57 pm
jmcnrick

1:57 pm
melissamay

Yes, that's me. It's become my nightly ritual.
1:57 pm
melissamay

melissamay

Wow, interesting -- I really didn't think that was so. Very cool!
2:00 pm
cosdem

the last 4 ce words
2:01 pm
m9f9l

all start with french "it /that is"
2:01 pm
varumba

ok... ce4/8 = ce4/5 but change last vowel into a high value consonant
2:01 pm
varumba

oops, wrong words cos
2:01 pm
varumba

let me start again, lol
2:01 pm
cosdem

2:02 pm
melissamay

Start with ce + curvy letter + vowel.
2:02 pm
melissamay

that is ce 5/12.
2:02 pm
varumba

ce5/12 = ce + ***mulate the intellect is what allows the brain cells to grow ;)
2:02 pm
varumba

you forgot a cons there melissa
2:03 pm
varumba

then ce6/21 = ce5/12 + add a wovel before the last one
2:03 pm
m9f9l

we could meet for lunch sometime melissa! A couple weeks ago I finally sat down and ate at Nicholas's.
2:03 pm
varumba

ce7/36 = ce6/21 + a cons
2:03 pm
melissamay

oh crap. Start with ce + curvy + cross + vowel. All the next words follow those first four letters with some variation at the end.
2:03 pm
varumba

ce6/21 = like first ce6/21 but change the last vowel for the plural consonant
2:03 pm
m9f9l

Now she has a daughter of her own. Just wait
4:24 pm
Girly Girl

okay, i need help finding words though
4:24 pm
carleekat

that is not her style either bichon...she is a goal orientated..mature...straight thinker
4:24 pm
Scrabbler

GG, read the Help section above, and scroll below the Tile Stats to read Lickety's Babble Clues.
4:25 pm
bichon

why, exactly does she think things are better on the other side? Did you not let her do something she wanted
4:25 pm
carleekat

open in another window lickety's babble clues...lists every word by word length and first 2 letters...should help you get started GG
4:25 pm
Jellen

Even straight thinkers can get taken by emotional manipulation...
4:25 pm
Scrabbler

"If______, then______." Life is about choices + consequences.
4:26 pm
carleekat

not better on other side... she is sacraficing herself....
4:26 pm
Scrabbler

But she may realize that her choice was not a good one.
4:26 pm
carleekat

this isnt about being better..or greener grass..she pities her dad...and feels someone either she or her brother ought to live there...he wont..so she is
4:27 pm
carleekat

i think she already realises it...but her sympathetic feelings outweigh that
4:27 pm
Girly Girl

k thx
4:27 pm
Soodlebum

Oh Carlee..... how difficult for you.
4:27 pm
bichon

Let her do it, even though it might not be a good choice
4:28 pm
carleekat

and he is going to have another built in maid and cook and she is a straight a student..top of her class....and...i just see herself setting herself up for catastrophe
4:28 pm
Scrabbler

I agree. Be emotionally detached. Allow her to make this choice, let her know you love her and she may move home at any time.
4:29 pm
mrswhiski

Carlee I have a 29 year old daughter with several disabilities. She does not speak nor have any other form of meaningful communication. I have never heard a word from her and yet I know everything about her by looking at her face and eyes. Sometimes we mothers miss so much when our children speak!
4:30 pm
carleekat

that just it scrabs....she knows that... she is being a martyr... for him...and he is letting her..encouraging her..and destroying this childs future for his benefit...we finally got my sonon track after being pulled down..and dragged down emotionally cus that is what my ex does to make himself feel better
4:30 pm
Soodlebum

I agree with Bichon and Scrabbler. She is 14. (Fourteen??? Crikey, my memories or being 14 are positively scary!)
4:30 pm
carleekat

( she is more mature then my 18 year and has always been )
4:31 pm
ChampFit

so sorry carlee! you just have to believe that in the end she'll see what's right. you can't tell them though...it's like we mom's are idiots.
4:31 pm
Scrabbler

This is not a permanent decision. She has the choice to leave a manipulative situation.
4:31 pm
jacq

tell her exactly how you feel about this carlee, let her know she can come back any time, when or if her dad starts dating she may come back because then he isn't lonely
4:32 pm
bichon

It will be her choice, not her mother's and if it doesn't work out, then she can't blame you.
4:32 pm
carleekat

hopefully....she does....i know grandma intends to have a long conversation with her..and grandmas are not the "mom idiots"
4:32 pm
Scrabbler

My sister's youngest son decided at 13 to move in with his alcoholic father, to "take care of him."
4:33 pm
jacq

grandma will not mince her words about dad manipulating her
4:33 pm
carleekat

and????? what happened scrabs
4:33 pm
carleekat

gramma will not jacs
4:33 pm
Scrabbler

He just turned 17 and quit high school.
4:33 pm
carleekat

i didnt need to hear this scrabs
4:33 pm
jacq

brb
4:34 pm
Scrabbler

He calls my sister or his older brothers to ask for rides because either Dad is drunk at bar or drunk at home.
4:34 pm
carleekat

cus that is what i see at the end of this road she is taking
4:34 pm
Scrabbler

But Carlee, your daughter is ambitious and bright.
4:34 pm
Scrabbler

Counseling?
4:35 pm
carleekat

and her father rips down the kids...tells them they cant do...my don for first time afger being free for 7 months has goals...and working..and helping out..and happy...and sees a future beyond wheeling concrete for his dad
4:35 pm
carleekat

he purposely just got himself an all day sat job so he no longer has to help out dad wheeling concrete :)
4:36 pm
Scrabbler

So she will see this when she lives with him.
4:36 pm
Scrabbler

Has your son talked to your daughter re Dad's behavior?
4:36 pm
carleekat

i hope so scrabs... i hope so...between that and grandma giving her 20 cens worth ( much more then 2 )
4:37 pm
mrswhiski

I agree Scrabbler. Have faith in your insightful daughter Carlee.
4:37 pm
Scrabbler

Is your daughter manipulated (turned into maid/cook) when she is at Dad's?
4:37 pm
Soodlebum

Without a doubt - how long will it take for her to live with her dad before she sees the real story. Carlee - I am far from being a feminist - but, the bond between a mom and her daughter is pretty unbreakable
4:37 pm
carleekat

yes..all the time
4:38 pm
Scrabbler

If she wants to be with her friends or attend social functions she will tire of his demands.
4:38 pm
carleekat

scrabs...finally after all these years..the other day..i thought.." i am ok...i am coping and i feel pretty ok...." then this hit... i had 2 days of "i feel ok"
4:39 pm
carleekat

and now...complete misery
4:39 pm
Scrabbler

But you were married to him, are an adult. She is just 14 and has little life experience.
4:39 pm
mrswhiski

I know you don't know me Carlee, but I truly feel so bad for you.
4:40 pm
Scrabbler

It is similar to situation of girl choosing loser boyfriend. If you criticize the guy she stays glued to him. Over time the girl realizes she deserves better.
4:40 pm
carleekat

thanks mrsW... thank u everyone....seriously...not sure what i would do
4:41 pm
carleekat

i hope she does...
4:42 pm
jacq

i left my mums at 17 to look after my dad, i thought he was helpless and lonely, it took a month for me to realise he was pathetic and selfish
4:42 pm
jacq

i put my mum through hell and i regret it every day, but i didn't see him for what he was till i lived with him
4:42 pm
Scrabbler

Stay in control. Be calm. Hide your shock + disappointment. This is something that SHE must work out for herself.
4:42 pm
carleekat

hopefully... she realises....that we were miserable with him here for reason
4:43 pm
jacq

she will realise
4:43 pm
carleekat

ithink tho scrabs she should know i am upset....to hide that is a lie...controlled but...hurt by this desicion
4:43 pm
Scrabbler

Don't you think that she will lose much freedom + autonomy when she lives with him?
4:43 pm
carleekat

no..i think she will have more....he leaves at 6 am..and does not get home until 8 pm...so..she alone in the apartment..with a computer and web cam etc
4:44 pm
jacq

and housework and cooking and laundry and shcoolwork
4:44 pm
carleekat

if she gets depressed...she will let the schoolwork slide
4:45 pm
jacq

speak to the school counsellor, make them aware of the whole situation
4:45 pm
Scrabbler

And then the school counselor, you, etc intervene.
4:46 pm
carleekat

yea..i will...
4:46 pm
carleekat

i still have not seen her to speak to her about this
4:46 pm
carleekat

she announced yesterday.....saying " its not fair dad is alone and its either taylor or me "
4:46 pm
jacq

they are an uninvolved impartial third party who only have her best interests at heart they may have more sway
4:46 pm
carleekat

and she stayed there last night
4:47 pm
Scrabbler

Write down pros & cons, etc and stress that she has the option to return home.
4:47 pm
carleekat

yea..i will
4:47 pm
Scrabbler

It's that father-daughter thing.
4:48 pm
carleekat

she doesnt remember hiding in the basement with me from his anger..turning up the tv so we would not hear if he yelled at us wanting something
4:48 pm
Soodlebum

(((((((((((((((Carlee))))))))))))))
4:48 pm
Scrabbler

Does she have friends that will look out for her, tell her that she does not have to take care of him?
4:48 pm
jacq

but she will remember
4:48 pm
carleekat

well...she would if she was reminded...
4:49 pm
jacq

and grnadma will remind her how bad things were
4:49 pm
carleekat

her friends are all into boys fashion makeup boys..football boys... hair boys
4:49 pm
carleekat

grandma will
4:49 pm
jacq

my mum always reminds my girls what their dad was like
4:50 pm
jacq

and she hardly knew anything
4:50 pm
carleekat

same...my mum doesnt know 1/2 of it
4:50 pm
jacq

but what she does know, about the emotional side she will tell her
4:51 pm
carleekat

gone to get tylenol...again...
4:51 pm
jacq

4:51 pm
Jellen

I need to go for now carlee, but I'll be back here and on Facebook...
4:52 pm
Soodlebum

My son used to go to bed with a golf stick beside him.. in case his father went nuts again. Its a constant source of worry to me, the effect that a mad bas*ard of a father can have on a youngster
4:55 pm
carleekat

4:55 pm
carleekat

"This too shall pass." Your daughter must learn a life lesson by experience.
4:57 pm
Scrabbler

This is very common with divorce--kids decide to switch homes, for various reasons.
4:57 pm
carleekat

i just hope it doesnt mess her up for the rest of her life..she has so much promise
4:57 pm
carleekat

i messed mine up for him....and i dont want to see it repeat
4:58 pm
Scrabbler

He will not be the sole influence. She has you, bro, teachers, school counselors...
4:58 pm
carleekat

and gramma...
4:58 pm
Scrabbler

You did the right thing, Carlee, by choosing to end the relationship.
5:00 pm
Scrabbler

Is she exposed to other kids' fathers, to know how a responsible man behaves, especially toward his daughter?
5:00 pm
carleekat

i tried for so long to make it work... and then..the accident...and the poor pitty...and.. oh man...i will be broke for the rest of my life.penny pinching..but..i wont be 2nd guessing anymore
5:00 pm
Soodlebum

My sister is a general practioner in a rural community here in Ireland. She encountered a horrific case of abuse last week. The social system here has broken down to the extent that nobody is taking responsibility. She is now left in the position of knowing that a child is in the gravest danger, but utterly incapable of doing anything to rectify the situation. Jeez..... Planet Earth, 2010?
5:00 pm
Scrabbler

Can the police help?
5:01 pm
carleekat

thats horrible,,, and must be crushing for her...
5:02 pm
Soodlebum

No, they can't, Scrabbler. Wait for this.... the Social services prioritise their cases of abuse on 'penetrative' - number 1, down to Non-penatrative...Number 10. It just beggars belief.
5:02 pm
jacq

i have to go huggggs for carlee be strong hun but be honest with her and let grnadma do her thing
5:02 pm
jacq

take care everyone
5:03 pm
carleekat

thanks jacs..hugging back...and will do...
5:03 pm
Scrabbler

In my work I see kids in awful situations--selfish parents, irresponsible parents, yet not officially neglectful or abusive. I mourn for those kids.
5:04 pm
Soodlebum

This particular case hasn't even been categorised, so its not on any priority list, even though my sister knows that the most horrific things are happening
5:05 pm
Scrabbler

That is irresponsible of the social system, to allow kids to be abused. What can be done??
5:05 pm
Soodlebum

Oh my, i am so sorry for darkening the chog.
5:05 pm
Soodlebum

Carlee.... My thoughts are with you.
5:06 pm
Scrabbler

Well, I must make a decision about dinner. Maybe pasta?
5:06 pm

5:06 pm

that was brunch here scrabs..i didnt do dinner and at 3 am i started to crave spaghetti....so..got up this am..and made spaghetti..had that at 11 am
5:07 pm

I find that with my kids, the more I can shut my mouth and get them to talk.. the quicker they make good decisions.
5:09 pm
carleekat

well..i havent seen her to exercise that principle... but i intend to... gramma's just ogint o have to work this one out...
5:10 pm
m9f9l

yeah.. that would kind of undermine things... because that getting them to talk part is huge.
5:10 pm

Good advice, m9--listen, reflect, validate, let them figure things out.

ah fear. One thing that you might ask her is what advice she'd give a friend in the same situation.
5:13 pm

oooh..good one

The hard part is not trying to lead her thinking. You can ask qustions to find out what SHE'S thinking.. but trying to lead her thinking will always backfire.

hi carlee... have read back some and know about your situation. for what it's worth, I'm also one of those whose daughter left to live with her dad at 13, albeit for different reasons. But I went through deep depression, and it was a tough time. And, as so many others have said before... she came back. They always do
6:46 pm
