Good idea, Diz. We only have 2 dogs left. Poor little Buster was hit and killed by a car yesterday. The car completely lost control. If it had been a person, the same would have happened. Thats why I am just not venturing out :-(

I hear your Buster is gone, Soodle.

AWWWW {HUGGLES} Soodle...xxx
2:55 am

Oh Haz, it is just heartbreaking. The mercy is that he was killed outright. Thank goodness he wasn't badly mangled, because we couldn't have gotten to a vet.
2:55 am
Haz1558

No doubt you'll be kicking yourself for ever having complained about him. I'm sorry - but as you say, glad it was quick.
2:55 am

yes at least it was quick but still v sad.

I will be demanding virtual home-made soup and beef and onion casserole from Haz and FM later.....

When I spoke to her yesterday they had only had a light dusting and R had been out to the shops. I would guess they have had more snow overnight, will call her later.
3:06 am

Hopefully that means that they're okay and they've got fresh provisions.
3:07 am

Not that there is much I can do as I can't use the car.

Oh well, just ahve to sit it out. All footie matches are canx until further notice too.

What are you up to today?
3:09 am
Haz1558

Pitches unplayable and roads not in great shape - it makes sense.
3:10 am
Haz1558

RDA has been cancelled because the lane to the stables is only passable in four wheel drive vehicles. So, staying put, although we haven't nearly as much snow as you.
3:11 am
Haz1558

I'll get out with Spangle for a walk, she likes the snow.
3:12 am

Morning ruby, oh dear re hubby :(
3:53 am
rubyfoo

he is a mess and shoveled snow yesterday which totally flattened him! I am not his mother and he gets mad at me if I tell him he's overdoing
3:53 am
lynxxx

Oh good grief! where is all that concern
3:53 am
lynxxx

not from you Ruby - from the villagers and mayor and police
3:53 am
FMitch

THat sounds like a very unsatisfactory outcome (so far) on the court case.
3:54 am
rubyfoo

I am disgusted. And the dog-owner, who was found guilty, only had to pay a fine of 450 euros to the court.
3:54 am
lynxxx

Soiunds like an unsatisfactory outcome for the whole neigbourhood
3:54 am
rubyfoo

French criminal justice, the ultimate oxymoron, I fear
3:55 am
Atalante

bonjour bonjour
3:55 am
lynxxx

Hello Ata!!
3:55 am
Haz1558

Bonjour!
3:55 am
rubyfoo

it will wind up costing us a lot of money plus the terrible psychological and physical toll it has taken on poor husband
3:55 am
FMitch

Hey Ata!!
3:55 am
rubyfoo

bonjour, ata
3:55 am
Atalante

working from home :)
3:56 am
lynxxx

It is all very wrong Ruby
3:56 am
lynxxx

Are you snowed in too Ata?
3:56 am
FMitch

HOw much has fallen Ata?
3:56 am
rubyfoo

it's not like he bit the dog!
3:57 am
Atalante

refresh for spaniel dismay!
3:57 am
Atalante

the fields have about a foot, everywhere else about 6 inches
3:58 am
Haz1558

ruby, I think at this point you have to cut your losses and give up the fight. You're not going to win on the terms you want and it's not worth the struggle for both of you to continue.
3:58 am
lynxxx

oh poor Hobbit!
3:59 am
lynxxx

Words of wisdom from Haz. I think it is so disappointing that the community hasn't supported you both too
4:00 am
rubyfoo

I think, once the next stage is over, they will all come together with a petition to destroy the dog
4:00 am
FMitch

oh poor hobbity!
4:01 am
Haz1558

I'd love nothing better than for justice to be done, but it's not worth the anxiety you've given yourselves. Certainly let the villagers carry on, but I think you should take a back seat.
4:04 am
Haz1558

Okay, having dispensed words of wisdom and having read the rule book twice through to see if there's anything about French justice (NOTHING THERE) I must take five minutes to throw on some more layers.
4:04 am
Atalante

good idea!
4:05 am
rubyfoo

no matter how it turns out, it's a bad situation. At least, this way, husband feels he's doing something
4:05 am
lynxxx

Is this a colder start to Winter than last year for you?
4:05 am
rubyfoo

this is the most snow we've had in 13 yrs here!
4:05 am
FMitch

Yes!
4:06 am
rubyfoo

and never this early
4:09 am
FMitch

So whats the verdict on the grid, good one?
4:09 am
rubyfoo

nice grid, almost half for me
4:10 am
FMitch

wtg ruby! you are miles ahead of me.
4:10 am
lynxxx

I'm just fiddling around, going OK
4:10 am
rubyfoo

half, yay!
4:10 am
FMitch

I keep getting distracted by things so input of words is at a snails pace.
4:12 am
Atalante

Input? Words?
4:13 am
FMitch

lol, Im using my typing skills in the chog rather than the grid.
4:14 am
rubyfoo

for nbt, hint for the top-right l
4:14 am
rubyfoo

all the l's come from the other one.....
4:14 am
FMitch

mind you I just typed that whole sentence in the wrong box. There is no hope for me today :)
4:14 am
rubyfoo

and I'll bet enable didn't accept it....
4:15 am
FMitch

LOL!
4:15 am
lynxxx

lo5.10
4:15 am
lynxxx

it means a scoundrel or worthless person
4:16 am
lynxxx

comes between the misplaced and misplaces
4:16 am
rubyfoo

ty lynxx
4:19 am
rubyfoo

and enable accepts the Italian wine....go figure!
4:20 am
Atalante

ooo I got an 8! yay!
4:20 am
lynxxx

I've missed that smugness!
4:21 am
rubyfoo

no 8's, no 9's, but have to make a soup -- will try to use up all the yucky old vegs in fridge
4:21 am
FMitch

you can feel it emenating can't you lynxxx :)
4:21 am
rubyfoo

see you later!!
4:21 am
Atalante

it's worse now I can prove I'm the most intelligent person in the world. Well, nearly :P
4:21 am
FMitch

Bye ruby.
4:22 am
FMitch

There will be no stopping your world domination now Ata :)
4:22 am
lynxxx

what??? how/why is that?
4:23 am
FMitch

HAve you joined Mensa yet?
4:23 am
FMitch

go on tell lynxx, Ata.
4:23 am
Atalante

oh lol, was rooting through a lot of my gran's stuff the other day and found a report from an educational psychologist person done when I was 6 basically saying I was so vastly intelligent at that age that I was as intelligent as a normal primary school teacher *sporfle*
4:24 am
dfmchfhf

*blinks blearily*
I slept through the flip :o(
4:24 am
FMitch

*passes dfm a coffee*
4:24 am
lynxxx

oh my Lord - major major smugness!
4:24 am
dfmchfhf

but caffeine puts me to sleep! :o/
4:25 am
Atalante

it really was quite quite funny to read
4:25 am
lynxxx

morning dfm
4:25 am
FMitch

Ah ok, how about juice?
4:26 am
dfmchfhf

juice works :o)
4:26 am
FMitch

It was a facinating insight Ata.
4:27 am
lynxxx

but then again maybe the pyschol. did not have a very high opinion of primary school teachers - ?
4:27 am
Atalante

the whole thing went on for pages. I was giggling madly while reading it and mother was most put out that I was finding it funny
4:27 am
FMitch

I wonder how many layers Haz is putton as she has been gone quite some time now.
4:28 am
lynxxx

the thermal underwear takes a while to put on I understand
4:28 am
dfmchfhf

hehe the letters I have left looks like a heart...
4:28 am
FMitch

*giggle*
4:29 am
Haz1558

I'm back.
4:30 am
dfmchfhf

hi haz! :o)
4:30 am
Haz1558

Hello, dfm and everyone.
4:30 am
Atalante

hello warm haz
4:30 am
FMitch

we were wondering where you had got to. But I guess you cleaned the house from top to bottom whilst donning layers and doing the ironing.
4:31 am
Haz1558

Body warmer on over jumpers, feeling better now.
4:31 am
dfmchfhf

I think I'm sleepy... I've been stuck on the C for a long time for nbt, any hints?
4:31 am
Haz1558

No, I was also checking on the food and water supply for the birds.
4:32 am
Haz1558

ce4/6 - give up
4:32 am
FMitch

I work backwards dfm and haven't got to the c's yet.
4:32 am
Haz1558

ce5 - gives up
4:33 am
FMitch

My birds are v confused as the food and water is in a different place today as I can't get up the garden.
4:33 am
Haz1558

ce4 and ce5 - padded ones provided in the Home for the Bewildered.
4:33 am
dfmchfhf

thanks haz :o)
nbt and 50 left
4:34 am
Haz1558

Husband bought some huge feeders for the birds. I think he was getting fed up with having to replace the food every five minutes in the smaller ones.
4:35 am
FMitch

What is it with men and having to buy big. Mum was commenting that R had brought back the biggest bag of bird seed she had ever seen.
4:36 am
Haz1558

I think it's because it's better value?
4:36 am
FMitch

Talking of which I had better give her a quick ring just to check all is well. BRB.
4:37 am
Haz1558

Hope all's well.
4:37 am
FMitch

on phone with them now and the central heating has packed up
4:37 am
Haz1558

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
4:38 am
FMitch

but they have an engineer there now.
4:38 am
Atalante

phew!
4:38 am
Haz1558

Oh good!
4:38 am
Haz1558

I was going to ask if they had alternative source of heat, but thank goodness they've got help already.
4:39 am
FMitch

BRB
4:40 am
Atalante

drat. Idotea isn't allowed. That's a type of little shrimpy thing
4:41 am
Haz1558

A y in the grid would be good.
4:42 am
Haz1558

Then we could have identity and 70.
4:46 am
FMitch

yay engineer has replaced a part and all is working again. Thank goodness and bless the engineer wh has a 4 wheel drive car!
Phone call may take a while.
4:46 am
Haz1558

That's good news, FM.
4:47 am
Atalante

aha, vets just phoned, hobbit has a reprieve from her trim until next week
4:48 am
Haz1558

It'll save you having to try to get through the snow as well.
4:49 am
Atalante

yep! though I really could just walk her down tehre, it's very close. BUt still, it's easiest
4:49 am
Haz1558

Thoughts on Apprentice?
4:50 am
Atalante

hmmm. not a particularly interesting one. No Stuart idiocy. Chicken feet are horrid. Phoning up Gordon Ramsay for truffles was amusing. Laura was fairly hopeless and how on earth did the boys win??
4:51 am
Haz1558

I think the penalties for not getting an item should have been far higher.
4:51 am
Haz1558

At one point I thought that this is being edited in such a way as to make you feel it inevitable that the girls win, therefore had a sneaky suspicion that the boys might do it.
4:52 am
Haz1558

We were glad to see Laura out, she's been such a moan the whole way through.
4:53 am
Atalante

Yes, but it didn't almost seem fair that the boys could win without getting all the items.
4:54 am
Haz1558

I know, I agree.
4:54 am
FMitch

and back :)
4:54 am
Haz1558

But then it was pointed out that it was more than just a treasure hunt, it was a cut-price treasure hunt and the girls lost sight of that.
4:54 am
Atalante

and I'm surprised nothing was really said about the boys making up stories. Normally AS doesn't like that sort of thing
4:55 am
Haz1558

I know, and the stories were so rubbish, all told in that monotone voice.
4:55 am
roncook

good to hear you ladies are feeding the birds,every time i put food out it gets covered by fresh snow,and they cannot get water from my pond as it is covered with slush.
4:56 am
FMitch

Hi ron.
4:56 am
Haz1558

Hello, ron. They're going mad for the sunflower hearts and the water has to keep being replenished as it keeps freezing.
4:57 am
Haz1558

We've just put a tin thing out on the table for the water.
4:57 am
FMitch

same here, I had to use a different container for the water today and the birds are all spooked but what can you do.
4:58 am
roncook

Hi Haz i have got a football in the pond to keep a space free of ice to save the liner but the ball is in a place the birds cannot drink from.
4:58 am
Atalante

adopt a word? how do you adopt a word? adoptaword.com
4:58 am
dfmchfhf

football in the pond? o.0
hi ron :o)
4:59 am
Haz1558

Some people should set up adoptaphrase.com 'At the end of the day' 'When all's said and done'
5:00 am
FMitch

run it up the flag pole.
5:00 am
roncook

Hello dfmcfhf, say hi to my son in Vancouver,he reckons we have more snow than they have there.
5:01 am
Haz1558

You know, it would be far easier if you called yourself mdf. That rolls off the tongue nicely.
5:01 am
dfmchfhf

you probably do, it's usually not that snowy in Vancouver...
heard they had a big snowfall recently though
5:01 am
dfmchfhf

haz you can call me mdf if you want! :o)
5:01 am
FMitch

and we could build him into all sorts of useful shelves and cupboards :)
5:02 am
roncook

As for the football in the pond i used to have a heater but am now watching my carbon footprint,and saving money.
5:02 am
Haz1558

But if I do, will it ring your wee bell to let you know you're being talked about?
5:02 am
dfmchfhf

but I don't want to be built in4 shelves and cupboards Do:
5:03 am
FMitch

oh phooey thats me off to the PB then.
5:03 am
dfmchfhf

it already looks for "dmf" as well, might as well make it look for "mdf" too
5:04 am
Haz1558

That's settled, then.
5:05 am
dfmchfhf

just keep me out of cupboards and shelves.
5:05 am
roncook

at least if you were mdf you could get a job with the blue film people as you would always have wood!! lol.
5:05 am
FMitch

lol naughty ron, but technically mdf is reconstituted stuff.
5:06 am
FMitch

so you would have to watch out for the splinters.
5:06 am
roncook

yer but its still woody
5:06 am
FMitch

:)
5:07 am
FMitch

time to put the kettle on and walk about a bit back in a bit.
5:08 am

Okay, I'm going to see if I can get anything useful done around here. Enjoy the grid, and see you later. Bye!
5:24 am

Bye Haz. See you later perhaps.
5:28 am
FMitch

Morning Sally.
5:29 am
Atalante

hi sally
5:29 am
Sally-catlover

Hi FM. Came on just as you were having a problem. Your heating?
5:29 am
Sally-catlover

And hi Ata.
5:30 am
FMitch

No! my v elderly parents but all is well now as engineer was able to get to them thanks to 4 wheel drive and spare parts.
5:31 am
Sally-catlover

Ah, OK. I didn't scroll back, just saw a mention of heating engineers whisking past my eyes.
5:31 am
FMitch

So thankful to whoever he is.
5:31 am
FMitch

or should that to 'to whomever he is'?
5:32 am
Sally-catlover

It's OK, Haz has left for the moment.
5:32 am
FMitch

phew!
5:33 am
FMitch

So hows you today and how is hubby doing?
5:33 am
Sally-catlover

I do wish those two S letters were together, could make so many words with a double one.
5:34 am
Sally-catlover

I'm well, hubby doing pretty well at the moment, but we have battened down the hatches and will not go out for the moment! Will make bread later and have plenty of food and log burner alight so all is well!
5:34 am
Sally-catlover

Sorry, two exclamation marks in same paragraph. Naughty Sally.
5:35 am
FMitch

Good to hear all of that :)
5:36 am
Sally-catlover

Gather it's pretty bad down your way. Niece who works at Christ's Hospital is snowed in at work which she thinks is most unfair!
5:36 am
FMitch

If it would stop snowing I would happily don wellies and venture in4 the village just for the fun of walking in snow ... but perhaps not.
5:37 am
Sally-catlover

I bought some Yaktrax for my boots last year FM, and they are invaluable for walking in the snow.
5:37 am
lynxxx

back. Hi Sally
5:37 am

I think skis would work well here today.
5:37 am
Sally-catlover

Hallo lynxxx

Hi again lynxxx
5:38 am
Atalante

so fed up of the snow
5:38 am

what happens with the chickens in the snow?
5:39 am
Sally-catlover

They stay under cover. They don't like walking on it.
5:40 am

there has to be a joke response to lynxxx's question but I just can't think of one :(

If ruru was here I bet he would come up with a great one liner.

Well I suppose you could say that you get instant frozen chicken.
5:42 am

Ooh, two lovely pheasants outside the window.

5:42 am

We have been having 'dumps' of rain combined with warm temps. All very steamy. My Angel Trumpet tree is totally covered in flowers - but I am going crazy tonight (itchy skin & slight headache) with the fragrance, I will have to pull at least half the flowers off it tomorrow
5:43 am
Sally-catlover

You do not have my sympathy lynxxx :-)

I was reading back in the log looking for clues earlier and it sounds like something has happened to Nancy Boy, hopefully we will be able to get some news from someone.
5:54 am
Sally-catlover

What sort of thing FM? What time should I look at?
5:54 am
FMitch

I don't know what sort of thing but it was about half an hour after the flip.
5:55 am

OK, will go and look.

Hi Aloy and peri! good to see you.

Oh dear, just read back. Thanks for the tip FM. If something has actually happened to him, can't think why it couldn't have been put briefly in the chog.
6:00 am

well lets try and keep the smiles going and support those that need it.

For a lot of us we don't actually know other Babblers in real life so if anything happened to one of us, we would just vanish from Babble without trace presumably.

Speaking of vanishing, anyone heard from Sprite?
6:03 am

i think my husband would probably know to post something here if i died or something - i mean he might think of it after a while.
6:04 am

true Sally and I had a nightmare a while back if anything happened to me - trying to explain to my non internet savvy parents how to let babble friends know :)

Mine wouldn't.

She is usually on in the afternoons these days lynxxx
6:05 am

But you know Ata and Haz in real life, FM, so presumably one of them would know. Perhaps I should leave vital instructions in my will. Amend FB, tell Babble, that sort of thing.

hello everyone - just a moment to stop in and tell you I'm here, I'm OK, but today will be the hardest day of all - we bury my husband at 11:00. I also want to send hugs and good wishes to Hurshy and to our dear Nancy Boy

Mum can't get her head round internet friends, I tried to use the pen pal analagy (as she has had a pen pal for years and they have met up) but she still can't quite grasp it.

Because JC said he had spoken to (sent a message to?) Frank, who is NB's partner.

A real man is a woman's best friend. He will
Never stand her up and never let her down.
He will reassure her when she feels insecure
And comfort her after a bad day.
He will inspire her to do things she never
Thought she could do; to live without fear
And forget regret. He will enable her to
Express her deepest emotions and give in to
Her most intimate desires. He will make sure
She always feels as though she's the most
Beautiful woman in the room and will enable
Her to be the most confident, sexy,
Seductive and invincible.

No wait... Sorry...

Its wine that does all that damn.

Hello FM. Did you venture out in the snow yet?
8:31 am

FM, i do tend to do most of the cooking... so i like a little variety in what i eat!
yesterdays new recipe was panko-crusted chicken with a citrus butter sauce. :)

what type of work do you do, Eva? (what type of business I guess is what I meant to ask)

Have no idea what the panko crusted bit is but the rest sounds delish.
8:33 am

i do software and application testing -- im a contractor for the government.
the agency we work for heavily relies on congress for their work -- when congress isnt busy, neither are we, for the most part.
we do have to come in on saturday morning for work, but right now, things are very light -- they usually are around the holidays...
8:33 am

panko is an asian-style type of breadcrumb. extra crispy. :)
and yes, hubby and i quite enjoyed it!

that explains it then, ty
8:34 am

Haz, I did and it was fun and Budgens was empty of most things but it was great stomping about in the snow.

panko works better than regular breadcrumbs if you actually want something to have a little crunch to it. ;)

the panko-crusted chicken i did last night was good, but i forgot to pound the chicken thinner before breading it, so the breading got overdone whilst waiting for the chicken to cook. will definitely try that one again and remember to thin the chicken!

A roasted chicken starts out as a roasted chicken and we eat the legs and lots of skin; slice the breast for sandwiches two days; chicken salad with scraps and then last tid bits into a stirfry
11:33 am
FMitch

and use the left overs and carcass to make stock.
11:33 am
72 Temple Owl

well the work was ok for daily things.

i will do that if i make, say, sloppy joes...
sloppy joe one night, then i put some over a salad, then i wrap it up in a tortilla...

chicken noodle casserole or chicken rice casserole if a little white sauce is ok by you
11:35 am

I used to make my own stock FM -- I have a bag in the freezer where I would throw carcasses and ends and skins of onions and celery and such and when it got full i would cook it down
11:35 am
jmcnrick

evan I haven't roasted a chicken in decades
11:35 am
72 Temple Owl

whole bird is easy with timer. do you have a bacis cookbook with measures and roasting times etc? youus eth epop up but gauge it by the raost times so sides come out in time

you take a few ingedients and cook them up and then the fridge/freezer is full of food.
11:39 am

i bread chicken breasts and freeze with wax paper. can cook in oven or fry healthy even if no time to thaw. and can parmigiana or tons of things - chicken fingers served with honey mustard dressing
11:39 am
MollyL

I have just started making my own vegetable stock. I keep onion ends, celery and carrot ends, broccoli stems and asparagus stems in a zip lock freezer bag. When it gets full enough, I make stock out of it.
11:39 am
72 Temple Owl

i don't do gravy but in a pinch use cream of chicken soup for it

wtg Molly that is great.

72 Temple Owl

molly i would love to learn that
11:40 am
jmcnrick

that is what I did when I was younger molly
11:41 am
MollyL

Eva, you could make soup and freeze it in individual containers just for you. As long as it doesn't have noodles in it. They get mushy if you freeze them.
11:41 am
jmcnrick

I recommend Texas Tamale pie for left over chicken. corn meal mush in the bottom of a baking pan, sauteed onion garlic chili powder and left over chicken next, then top with cheese and bake.
11:42 am
72 Temple Owl

sounds good
11:42 am
72 Temple Owl

would like recipe
11:42 am
EvaNadine

i dont bother cooking things for just me, unless im SUPER craving it. we eat most of our dinners together, and i usually end up bringing leftover dinner for lunch. so not many opportunities for me to eat something he wouldnt eat...
11:42 am
72 Temple Owl

nice tip, molly.
11:43 am
FMitch

Now is your chance to change that EvaN!
11:43 am
72 Temple Owl

i am enjoying chat, ty all.
11:44 am
MollyL

TO, like I said, I just save the vegetable ends and stems. Then I cover them with water, add salt, pepper and some herbs and cook for about two hours. It's great stock and it makes wonderful soup.
11:44 am
EvaNadine

maybe i will ask dad his "recipe" for whatever the soup is...
the other challenge is that we have a small freezer, so theres not much room in there for things we arent actually eating...
11:45 am
FMitch

TO did you get my email?
11:45 am
72 Temple Owl

i see the potato recipe - have never boiled first, will try. love oregano in them and onions.

Mom. Pa built the cellar in their house by hand when he was in his late 60s. I swear he would have painted the whole outside of the house recently if Gran hadn't stopped him.

not sure Molly -- once again he did NOT turn on his phone while in town, so once again we are not sure where he is... so Tom will check where he is supposed to be, attempt to call once. and then come home. and the kid will need to figure out how to stay warm until we feel like going to get him.

7:35 pm
72 Temple Owl

sorry to hear, doren- any idea where?
7:35 pm
Dorens

somewhere in my mind i've heard acetone (nail polish remover). think i've used it. think exhusband the doctor told me this sometime in a past life
7:36 pm
Dorens

not at all owl. i'm such a ditzbrain lately it could have been anywhere, since monday nite
7:36 pm
redturtlehead

Molly, some sugar is fine, but I would rather eat cake than meat... and I need to eat protien...its a vice, cookies...pies...
7:36 pm
MollyL

And TO, you have to work at that stuff gently, a little at a time. Just keep working it with the acetone until it starts to come off. It's nasty stuff.
7:36 pm
redturtlehead

I am getting cookies in the mail next week!!!
7:36 pm

I'm down to 13 words... going back to the beginning and ploy my monkies with bananas !
8:25 pm
MollyL

NBT, no blank tiles. It means you have one word out of each of the 25 tiles in the grid. NBS, no blank stats. It means you have one tile in each of the Word stats tiles, like one 4, one 5, etc.
8:25 pm
bichon

If you have one word for each letter on the grid
8:25 pm
Mark Jones

Hello, bichon
8:25 pm
dianedecoder

okay..... I sort of don't play that way... I'm a systematic creature lol
8:26 pm
MollyL

I think everyone should play the way they like. It's a game.
8:26 pm
dianedecoder

so it's sort of a competition when the grid first flips... as I see players declaring those things
8:27 pm
MollyL

And I don't think checking Morewords or A2Z wordfinder is any different than "monkeying" aka randomly typing in possibilities.
8:27 pm
dianedecoder

yup.... "I do it, my way"..... la la la la la
8:27 pm
MollyL

Oh that first hour looks like serious business to me. You will never see me there. Uber competitive.
8:27 pm
bichon

Molly, I agree. People will get clues from the chat log, but think that's different than using the list
8:28 pm
dianedecoder

well in monkeying, I just use word values... and I haven't used morewords or A2Z
8:28 pm
MollyL

I know. I laugh when I see people asking for clues in the chat log before they have listed.
8:28 pm

Can i have a hint for te8?

and I love the game.... good exercise for the brain.... I believe I'm beginning to think in "Babble-ese"
8:29 pm
dianedecoder

oooh, I need that one too Mark... in fact I need 4 te words... just starting to work on them
8:29 pm

monkeying is different than using morewords or grep search, because morewords and grep can be done more systematically...

it's easier to separate your bills, that's for certain

they have something so that the blind can discern the bills

american and canadian bill identification is easy..i laugh when we get visitors from the south,our money is easy,if you see a 5,it is 5 dollars,a 10 is ten dollars etc lol

Likewise with American money Cross. We have numbers on our bills too. We just got that last week. : P : P

No raised dots on American bills.

Don't know. I've never checked. I don't read Braille.

I was supposed to have said:
Canada has $1 and $2 coins too, and $2 bills (from ages ago)!
9:04 pm

we have the raised dots but any blind person i know identifies the differnt bill by folding the corner of the bill itself
9:04 pm
herinfernallady

Does Canada and AMerica have different sizes for their notes?
9:05 pm
lbdawger

US has dollar coins, but they aren't used very often
9:05 pm
Mark Jones

America doesn't.
9:05 pm

Yep Cross, that is how blind people identify their bills here. And those with vision trouble.
9:05 pm

the note size is the same across all dominations

I am a coin collector, so I have many of each currency.

and we also have 2 dollar bills, also not used very often.
9:06 pm
lil*monkey

clue for on7?
9:06 pm
wht

I have heard that the idea behind the uniformity of American bills was so that it would be harder for someone to know how much money you had with a quick glance.
9:06 pm
dfmchfhf

they were totally *ages* ago crossy... :oP
9:06 pm
Mark Jones

That is very true.

Lil...1 + me, my**** and I
9:07 pm

i am a numismatic collector myself mark
9:07 pm
lbdawger

americans get confused with 2 dollar bills, and the dollar coins were just a hair bigger than our quarter, so not used a lot for that reason
9:07 pm
lil*monkey

tanks Molly.... FISH slap me!
9:07 pm
dfmchfhf

well, okay, I concede, not the $2... but the $1...
9:07 pm

So sometimes people fold up their money so that the large bills are inside, or the large bills are outside, depending on whether they want to appear rich or poor.
9:07 pm
Mark Jones

Cool.
9:07 pm
herinfernallady

Wow. Our notes have different sizes just enough to be visable. Not that I would know what anything past a $20 looks like these days
9:07 pm
MollyL

No way honey. I want you to smell lovely at the dance tomorrow night. : P
9:08 pm

the problem with a coin dollar for the americans began with the susan b anthony dollar
9:08 pm
MollyL

I want to have a wad of bills big enough to be concerned about "wht"..."wht" is speaking about someday.
9:08 pm
dfmchfhf

I have a bunch of $1 American coins :oO
9:09 pm
Mark Jones

It didn't fit into vending machines, so they stopped making it;
9:09 pm
lbdawger

uniformity of the american dollar bills is probably also due to the mass production in the mints. one size versus having to change the cut blades for each change of denomination
9:09 pm
herinfernallady

I was given a silver dollar when I was born
9:09 pm
dfmchfhf

I like Hong Kong bills and coins so much more than the on4 we have here...
9:10 pm
MollyL

Americans are just mired in tradition. We rejected metric as soon as it was forced on us and we don't want coins that have value of a dollar or more. Creatures of habit.
9:10 pm
Mark Jones

I have a 1897 mint silver dollar.
9:10 pm

oh Molly, such a diplomatic way of saying how lazy we are to have to think!
9:10 pm

i do not bother too much with american coinage other than the 1 dollar gold coin fron the mid 1800,s
9:10 pm
MollyL

Question...do Canadian vending machines take the dollar coins? That is something I never asked Dan.
9:10 pm
wht

The fare machines in the Boston subways give out dollar coins for change, so you are starting to see them around here more. But the cach register drawers don't have a place for them.
9:11 pm
Mark Jones

I don't know.
9:11 pm
dfmchfhf

they sometimes don't, most do (and the $2 coins too)
9:11 pm
crosshair

vending machines are scarce here now molly
9:11 pm
dfmchfhf

most have a label that states "this machine (do4 not) accept(s) dollar coins"
9:11 pm
MollyL

dawg, are we lazy, or are the vending machine manufacturers lazy? Hmmmmm? : P
9:11 pm
Mark Jones

Both.
9:12 pm
MollyL

Whoa, hold up. No vending machines in Canada?
9:12 pm
crosshair

the pop machines take loonies and toonies,and we no longer have ciggarette machines
9:12 pm

i think it's the human factor. the vending machine makers just go with what's going to be spent
