1:55 am

A bit too cool for their feeders, sometimes. I had to bring the feeder in overnight to thaw it! This doesn't happen here very often, and certainly hardly ever in November.
1:56 am

It's called Anna's Hummingbird, if you want to google it.

We've missed you the past few days. Yes, pretty much surrounded by the stuff. I'm ready for it to disappear.
3:33 am
Haz1558

We don't have huge quantities but it shows no sign of shifting. What about you?
3:33 am

me too. Sidewalks are ice with snow on top... dangerous for walking. Yeah, nasty flu. Missed you all too.
3:35 am
Haz1558

Yes, pavements aren't in great shape here either. Are you fully recovered from the flu?
3:36 am
sprite

first day up again, still a bit weak in the stem (?). But very happy to be out of bed!
3:37 am
Haz1558

Weak in the stem = wobbly legs? You know you've got flu and not a cold when the prospect of getting out of bed seems akin to climbing Everest.
3:39 am
sprite

lol yes, exactly.
I don't think it is an english expression. In dutch we can say 'weak on the stem' as an image of a flower that is still a bit drooping after having had too little water.
3:40 am
Haz1558

There's a Scots expression - feeling peely-wally that sums it up nicely.

I guess so. Though days are often what you make of them.
3:44 am

2 1/2 ft of snow on the ground with ice underneath! and getting colder by the minute

it is too dangerous to go out although the road are clear. We are below the road, though, and the driveway and steps are dangerous, and I worry that husband will fall

Glad to hear you are up and about, albeit wobbly, Sprite.
3:47 am
rubyfoo

I sent you an e-mail soodles, how are you doing? I'm glad you got supplies in. My dopey neighbor called me to say she couldn't get her car out (did she think my husband would dig her out? lol) so I said, Have you heard of taxis?
3:47 am
Haz1558

They're for JBV's husband who died, sprite.
3:47 am
Soodlebum

Oh Sprite... Maybe you didn't hear about JBV's husband?
3:47 am
sprite

rubyfoo, can't your husband get those metal grips you bind under your shoes?
3:47 am
sprite

oh dear :( Am so sorry to hear that.
3:47 am
rubyfoo

I have cardamon seeds in my stove-top boiling water (to humidify the house) as the fireplaces make the air very dry
3:48 am
rubyfoo

when did that happen?
3:48 am
Haz1558

I'm not sure exactly when he died, but the funeral was yesterday.
3:49 am
Soodlebum

I think Monday or Tuesday. He was being buried yesterday. JBV called by yesterday morning
3:49 am
rubyfoo

how old was he?
3:50 am
Haz1558

I don't know, ruby, but he had been in ill health for quite a while, I think.
3:50 am
sprite

it is a sad season. So many people dying way too young.
3:50 am
rubyfoo

this is a difficult time of year!
3:51 am
sprite

yes I believe so too, Haz.
3:53 am
Soodlebum

Got your email, Rubes, thank you. Haz, Sprite, Ruby wrote to me in bright pink, to cheer me up, and and it worked!

3:56 am
rubyfoo

3:56 am
Haz1558

Who wants to lead off a round of tut-tutting?
3:56 am
sprite

*giggles*
I will put some spiced wine in the PB, rubyfoo. It will warm and cheer you up, all at once.
3:56 am
Soodlebum

LOL
3:56 am
dizgrannie

LOL might need more than hot chocolate, had a coupla glasses of wine with dinner...HICC
3:56 am
sprite

tsk tsk, t-t-t. Always game.
3:57 am
rubyfoo

too early, even for me! but hot toddy before lunch, that's for sure
3:57 am
Haz1558

My mother was the fastest at tut-tutting I ever heard.
3:57 am
sprite

fastest as in quick to start it, or in the pace of tutting?
3:57 am
Haz1558

She had a remarkable technique, machine gun tuts.
3:58 am
sprite

ah, asked and answered, thanks
3:58 am
Soodlebum

I bet mine came a close second, Haz.... With us lot, she had ye**s of practice..
3:58 am
dizgrannie

Hey what is this Spiced Wine that you often talk about....humour this Aussie...LOL
3:58 am
Haz1558

The pace of tutting - she was a sweetheart.
3:58 am
rubyfoo

if you have a bottle of so-so wine, add some sugar and spices and heat it up on the stove
3:58 am
Soodlebum

Is spiced wine the same as Mulled wine?
3:58 am
rubyfoo

goes right to your toes if you're cold
3:59 am
rubyfoo

yes, and you stir it with a cinnamon stick
3:59 am
Soodlebum

Don't forget the chunks of apples and cloves, Ruby...
3:59 am
sprite

red wine, add cinnamon, take an orange and put a load of .... (must look that up) into them, warm the wine with the cinnamon and orange.
3:59 am
dizgrannie

WOW sounds okies, might try some....thanx
3:59 am

cloves
4:00 am
rubyfoo

aaah, but then you're getting into health food, soodles!
4:00 am
sprite

don't boil the wine though, you will lose all alcohol that way. And that would be a shame.
4:00 am
sprite

oh we never did apples... sounds great!
4:01 am
Soodlebum

Nah. The apples absorb the wine, you could get tipsy eating the leftovers the next day. Health food shmealth food!
4:01 am
sprite

yes, I believe it is the same as mulled wine, Soodle.
4:02 am
rubyfoo

that's like the fruit in the bottom of the sangria which has soaked overnight in sugar and brandy -- cook's treat
4:02 am
Soodlebum

Blooming well started snowing again here. Its just not funny or beautiful anymore. I am sick of it now.
4:03 am
Haz1558

I know, there's not the least sign of a thaw.
4:03 am
sprite

our favorite restaurant had also the best sangria I ever tasted... I got the recipe from the owner because we were such good customers we were considered family.
4:03 am
sprite

snow is only nice if you (and everybody else) is free from work. And from shopping. Etc.
4:04 am
Haz1558

That's the problem, sprite, life has to go on.
4:05 am
sprite

yes I know. It is hell walking Terra. With my pelvic injuries I walk the mini walk, and I let Terra do the running and walking long stretches.
4:06 am
Soodlebum

My car is just immovable. I took a taxi into town yesterday, and shopped for a week.
4:06 am
sprite

not that he minds... he LOVES snow and ice. He is frisky and wild and runs miles to and from me.
4:06 am
rubyfoo

had better get dressed now, see you later
4:06 am
sprite

ouch Soodle, that is something!
4:06 am
rubyfoo

bye rubyfoo
4:08 am

for me this grid is a bit tight... not really flowing and I am not even halfway.
4:09 am
Soodlebum

I found the first 70 or so ok..... I'm slowing down now.
4:09 am
Haz1558

It takes a bit of looking, that's for sure.
4:09 am
sprite

glad to hear I am not the only one
4:15 am
Haz1558

Strangest word I've found so far - pu7, a light turban worn in India. Looks like a cross between a dog and a trousered garment (usually plural) worn for work.
4:18 am
sprite

oh that is a word I should know... now what was it... thanks for the clue, Haz!
4:18 am
Haz1558

No problem, it was on the tip of your tongue anyway, you just needed an extra nudge.
4:19 am
Soodlebum

Just found it - thank you Haz. I would have been a long time looking for that one.
4:19 am
sprite

a HUGE nudge, grin.
4:19 am
Haz1558

You're welcome. I'd love to take the credit but morewords had a lot to do with finding it.
4:20 am
sprite

as Ata always says, that is research, Haz.
4:20 am
Haz1558

Absolutely.
4:28 am
Soodlebum

Oooh. An 8 just popped out at me. :-)
4:28 am
sprite

wow wtg Soodle! No such luck here so far.
4:28 am
Haz1558

Okay, I'm going to do something even more useful than this. Enjoy the grid and hope you get through this weather safely.
4:28 am
Soodlebum

Ch, sprite.

Take care, Haz. Keep warm.
4:29 am

7:30 am
Atalante

7:30 am

Ata, what a great story
7:30 am
EvaNadine

no worries, trif.
we just had a young babbler on a moment ago who seemed to think he could tell people when it was time to change their icon.
apparently molly's candle was "annoying."
7:30 am
Sally-catlover

Lovely story Ata.
7:30 am
NonoNanette

aweeee, bless your friend Ata!
7:31 am
Haz1558

Sally, I read that initially as 'I'm afraid of you, Haz'. I didn't know whether to be pleased or not.

7:31 am
Trifioso

Oh Trif, so sorry you're having a rough time.

I assume, she says, apropos of nothing, that a lot of schools are shut today because of the weather.
7:43 am
Atalante

yes .......
7:44 am

7:45 am
Julciia

Mom youre older than my gran how is that possible
7:46 am
Mom

I am just lucky I guess
7:46 am
NonoNanette

Mom, I have 24 of them and only one would i consider uncommon
7:46 am
Julciia

Nono why are you so old
7:46 am
Haz1558

Because one of them is an Indian turban, Mom, it might not be in your vocabulary. It looks like the coming together of a dog and a singular trousered work garment. (pu7/44)
7:46 am
Mom

thanks Nono, maybe I will concentrate on those for a while
7:46 am
Atalante

*snorfle*
7:47 am
Mom

will work on that Haz
7:47 am
Sally-catlover

There is a very apt pr 4/5
7:49 am

nice clue Haz! I didn't have that one
7:49 am
Haz1558

Glad it worked, Nono.
7:49 am
Mom

have the dog part, working on the other part
7:50 am
NonoNanette

Mom the work garment would work very well for a farmer

Think of trousers with bibs. Maybe you call them something different in the States.
7:50 am

Must just pop casserole in oven, brb
7:50 am

Thanks Haz

Sally, what kind of casserole are you baking? I just love casseroles
7:51 am

Mom, didn't people used to refer to jeans as dung***** a long time ago?
7:51 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, Mom.
7:51 am
Mom

I was just thinking of asking her that, Annie
7:51 am
Mom

maybe so, but we never did
7:51 am
Atalante

Mom will know. She's older than *everyone*
7:52 am
Anniebrook

Even older than me...LOL...did we get the A students today, the overachievers
7:52 am
Mom

in kindergarten my oldest told the teacher it was my birthday and she asked him how old I was and he said "older than dirt"
7:52 am
Anniebrook

LOL
7:52 am
Sally-catlover

Back. Oh, it's a beef casserole. Had bread in oven earlier so was waiting for it to cool a bit. Beef, onion, mushrooms, carrots, tin tomatoes, seasoning. Long slow cooking, will last us at least two days!
7:53 am
Haz1558

The Chuckle Sisters seem to have left the building.

Uneaixoise

hope not! I'm driving a leg of a rescue dog transport from Nville to Cookeville -- 4 dogs!
7:56 am
Sally-catlover

You know, for a moment there I stopped at the word "dog" and thought you were talking about the leg of a dog.
7:56 am
Mom

oh dear, how far is Cookeville from you?
7:56 am
Uneaixoise

LOL!!

7:59 am
MollyL

Me too Mom, I had to work with it for a while after Haz mentioned it.
8:00 am
Mom

although I don't think there is such a thing. There is always something not quite right with bras
8:00 am
Anniebrook

phone
8:00 am
Haz1558

Sally gave the bra clue originally.
8:00 am
Mom

hurry back Annie
8:01 am
MollyL

I've switched to sports bras unless I'm wearing something that requires the real deal. The sports bras are much more comfortable.
8:01 am
EvaNadine

*returns to chog and is utterly appalled that Molly STILL has a candle for her icon*
8:01 am

Yoo hoo...Eva...refresh...
8:02 am
Mom

lol Eva
8:02 am
car.eeyore

Uh oh. I still have a candle. is this bad?
8:02 am
Sally-catlover

lol Eva. I do wonder if we should suggest to Dr_G that Babblers can't join the chog unless they are Pro.
8:02 am
NonoNanette

lol, love it Molly!
8:02 am
Mom

lol Molly
8:02 am
MollyL

I second, third and fourth that Sally.
8:03 am
EvaNadine

oh, well POO!
i cant see it clearly, and there is still a candle when i click on your profile...heh
8:03 am
Sally-catlover

That really would sort the problem.
8:03 am
Mom

it is a good idea but some people may not be able to afford the Pro cost
8:03 am
Mom

Eva, it says "Is my icon annoying you"
8:03 am
Haz1558

My suggestion had been that you can't join in the chat log until you've played maybe three or four days.
8:03 am
Sally-catlover

But I seem to remember it wasn't very much money.
8:04 am
MollyL

Mom has a point. It would be punishing the good with the bad I guess.
8:04 am
mkg

hi all.
8:04 am
Mom

look at how long DFM has played before he went pro, and then there is Grant and Gran and so many others
8:04 am
mkg

what is the clue for cu 7 please.
8:04 am
NonoNanette

hi mkg
8:04 am
Sally-catlover

That's a good idea Haz. Or maybe a little longer?
8:04 am
Mom

Hi MKG
8:04 am
mkg

nm got it.
8:04 am
EvaNadine

i still firmly believe in the "ignore" button.
anyone can join the chog, but if you annoy me, i click the button and youre invisible to me.

yknow, kinda like in the real world.
8:04 am
MollyL

I like your idea Haz. It's like message boards where you can't post until you've been a member for a period of time. Weeds out the one shot troll traffic.
8:04 am
Haz1558

Maybe. It would cut out some of the randomness, perhaps.
8:05 am
FMitch

Afternoon all
8:05 am
Haz1558

Hello, FM!
8:05 am
Mom

I thought there was going to be some type of "ignore" on the new babble
8:05 am
Sally-catlover

Have you suggested it to Dr_G Haz?
8:05 am
Mom

Hi FMitch
8:05 am
Sally-catlover

and Hallo FM.
8:05 am
NonoNanette

i like that idea the best Eva

hi FM
8:05 am
Haz1558

I did, Sally, right back when he was asking for suggestions for the new babble.
8:06 am
Sally-catlover

The ignore button will be on the new Babble.
8:06 am
FMitch

Hello all, yawning after an extended nap.
8:06 am
EvaNadine

i think he mentioned there may be...
8:06 am
Haz1558

I don't like the idea of not allowing perfectly nice non-pro people to join in the conversation, I thought the time thing would be a compromise.
8:06 am
Mom

Nap???? oh that sounds like a grand idea.
8:06 am
pcal2

certainly makes us non-Pros feel unwanted...
8:07 am
FMitch

:) Mom I needed it as I was up at 3.30am
8:07 am
Mom

it doesn't seem like there are as many trolls as there were when I started playing 5 years ago

Hi Pcal

Mom

Oh wow, FMitch, couldn't sleep?
8:07 am
pcal2

Hi Mom
8:07 am
Haz1558

It's not the non-pro people we don't want, it's finding a way of stopping people from kind of divebombing the chat log, just because they can.
8:08 am
Sally-catlover

non-Pros certainly aren't unwanted, pcal, it's the kids who come on to make trouble that are unwanted.
8:08 am

I remember when I first started there was a class that would come on enmasse and then the teacher would come on and apologize
8:11 am
Haz1558

I think seasoned babblers know to ignore/not feed etc, but there was a sustained campaign a few years ago from a school that still makes me shudder. It went on for days.
8:11 am

I remember that Annie
8:12 am
Anniebrook

Haz, yes, that was it...a horror
8:12 am

ohhh heavens yes - that was a nightmare!

I told myself no loitering today, have to get things in order so I can decorate for the holidays. Therefore I bid you all a good day.

8:14 am

I learned a few new words from that class.

I know, I tend to give the benefit of the doubt until the language starts.

1:22 pm

we can only learn from our own mistakes
1:23 pm

yes Molly, it is. especially since he has a few limitations that other people don't. but denies he has them so doesn't take advantage of the supports that exist to help.

STID!!!
1:23 pm

I like Dr Phil's idea that it is better for kids to try new things and fail when they are at home and have "a soft place to land" when they fall
1:23 pm

oh well...
1:23 pm
Glantarell

better to make lots of mistakes when you're young than leave them till you're much older LOL
1:23 pm

Amen. Everyone needs a soft place to land.
1:23 pm
stidmama

ardilla!!! *checks for fever, cough, tired eyes and signs of illness* how are you?
1:24 pm
stidmama

yes, I hope the soft place to land is something he will take advantage of... he keeps talking about leaving home. but no job! and few job-worthy skills.
1:25 pm
stidmama

hence, my concerns.
1:25 pm

better, pretty stressed out and trying to relax/recover
1:25 pm

ardilla I have been at home almost all week with a bad cold and cough. I hope I didn't catch it from you! ;)
1:26 pm

trade school is not really an option -- physical limitations and an expectation to go to college will get in his way
1:26 pm
stidmama

well at least you are on the mend.
1:26 pm
ardilla

saw a real doc on monday and had another chest x-ray...no pneumonia...she didn't understand what my medic was doing...she gave me an inhaler

that's true dfm.
1:27 pm

stid - I am aware of the limitations, but sometimes you just have to let them find out for themselves what living in the "real" world is like. Our granddaughter is bipolar and moved out and back a few times before she found her feet.

honestly, he is "free" to leave at any time -- but has no savings, no job, and not eligible to drive even if he had a car (no license)

there shouldn't be a 50% difference! >.>
1:39 pm

there is supposed to be a difference, dfm! one measures pressure during pumping, one measures pressure in the "tubes" when the pump relaxes.

4:04 pm

troll doll... braiding hair? o.0
4:04 pm
MollyL

I don't get troll behavior either Soodle. I also wonder if there aren't a few people posting here under two different names.
4:04 pm
welki

in wales, though, isn't it true that most of the flyfishing streams are controlled by private fishing clubs?
4:04 pm
Glantarell

oh, they were really cute - came in several sizes - fat feet, cure grins and hair in various colours
4:04 pm
welki

(i loved troll dolls, too)
4:04 pm
Glantarell

yes almost all fishing in wales is controlled by licence
4:05 pm
Soodlebum

Soodle putting her Tourism Ireland hat on.... Welki... flyfishing in Ireland would be great... with the added advantage of a minor
4:05 pm
Glantarell

but you can buy day/week licences
4:05 pm
Soodlebum

Babble meet as well!
4:06 pm
Glantarell

of course tyou could do a celtic tour - there are ferries between ireland and wales LOL
4:06 pm
Soodlebum

Now you are talking
4:06 pm
Kazzer99

i am back again!!
4:06 pm
welki

if only. i can't imagine how much a trip like that would cost ... and then the added expense of picking up guides in the pub to show us the good spots :)
4:07 pm
Glantarell

babble guides would be free LOL
4:07 pm
Glantarell

and they might even offer accommodation
4:07 pm
welki

do you flyfish, glantarell? soodle?
4:08 pm
Soodlebum

Welki, my son and heir is a keen fisherman. And my humble abode could accommodate a guest or two..... Sorry, I don't fish myself, but I would happily welcome any Babbler to my home!
4:08 pm
Glantarell

i don't flyfish any more - my father used to take me every saturday when i was a child to catch trout for tea, but I live in Brecon, and see flyfishermen in waders in the Usk through the spring and summer
4:09 pm
JBV

hello dear friends, I am here for a few minutes to say hello and thank you to all for your good wishes and candle icons - my husband's funeral was yesterday and I am just beginning to be able to think straight
4:09 pm
Soodlebum

Golly Molly - Do you really think that established Babblers are trolling?
4:10 pm
Glantarell

So sorry to hear that news JBV
4:10 pm
welki

i can tell you that the sight of me in waders would make a grown man pluck his eyes out
4:10 pm

JBV, those words help me as I am dealing with loss also. I'm glad they helped you too.
4:12 pm

4:12 pm

4:14 pm

4:18 pm

Jeepers, Welki.. Just saw your post.. $1,500 to dublin? Crikey.
4:18 pm
Glantarell

oh dear - that brought a picture of a woman in thigh high leather boots etc
4:19 pm
MollyL

Soodle, to answer your earlier question, no. I don't think established Babblers are posting as other people. I do think the person who cracked on my icon this morning is though.
4:19 pm
welki

i suppose they'd be ~~haute couture waders~~
4:19 pm
Glantarell

ROFLMAO
4:19 pm
welki

i don't understand "cracked on your icon" molly
4:20 pm
Soodlebum

Oh, thats horrible, Moll. Its almost an invasion of your Babble privacy, isn't it?
4:20 pm
welki

i think that, if you did a search on women flyfishing, you'd find dozens of photos of barely naked women in the water with a fly-rod (and i really do mean fishing rod)
4:21 pm
jmcnrick

what?
4:21 pm
Glantarell

i don't get cracked on your icon either
4:21 pm

what happen?

(((Soodle rapidly retracts the invitation for Welki to stay chez Soodle)))
4:22 pm

4:22 pm
MollyL

I was told this morning that my candle icon, that I put up out of respect for JVB's loss, was annoying and told to take it down.
4:23 pm
jmcnrick

how rude!
4:23 pm
welki

why have i been retracted? *unpacking*
4:23 pm
Glantarell

surely your own icon is your onw business?
4:23 pm
welki

who told you that?
4:24 pm
MollyL

I don't want to start name calling Welki. It's in the chat archives around 8 this morning.
4:24 pm
ChampFit

WHAT? Hate when I pay attention and find out someone was rude to someone else...
4:24 pm
jmcnrick

as long as you icon meets minimal pg13 standards who cares?
4:24 pm

soodlebum'sicon is lots of candles - has comment nbeen made about that?

4:25 pm

Was the icon a 'moving/flickering one Molly - perhaps that is why
4:25 pm
MollyL

Nope, I don't post those kind. I don't even think you can here.
4:25 pm

Lots of non-Jewish people celebrate it here. More holidays the better
4:26 pm

4:26 pm

refresh -- the winning outfit is my icon now
4:26 pm
PinnyPoppins

Really Bichon? I've never met a non-Jew that celebrated Chanukah
4:26 pm
lynxxx

You can Molly, but they are very distracting. Unless your photo was abnornmally large and making the chat all jumpy - then the person who told you that should go jump
4:27 pm
ChampFit

which one? the first is fi + you watch movies at the ***ema
4:27 pm
Soodlebum

Of course people celebrate Hanukkah her. People in Ireland celebrate EVERYTHING. If the cat has kittens, we celebrate. If its raining, we celebrate. If its snowing, we celebrate..
4:27 pm
bichon

In the US, because there are so many Jews, the edges of these holidays are blurred
4:27 pm

what is the deal with celebrating hanukah when not jewish? i dont get it.
4:29 pm
Soodlebum

Was the ceremony nice, JVB.. Could you tell you tell us about it?, if its not too painful...
4:29 pm
jmcnrick

it seems a tad rude to adopt a religions holiday without the religion -- is she going to sing baruch adoni?
4:29 pm
saintfranny

I don't mean to interject myself - but I guess I am! Molly!! That guy - how old is he anyway?? - had no right to tell you to do anything, and I REALLY wish you hadn't changed your candle! He was being ridiculous - in fact, I find it hard to believe he was even serious - who does that????
4:29 pm
saintfranny

and, I'm very sorry to hear about JVB's loss...
4:29 pm
bichon

Schools tend to celebrate a lot of holidays and kids come home and want to know why they don't celebrate it
4:29 pm

do i have to read the silly archive to find out who this was?
4:30 pm

I celebrate Hanukkah, I am Jewish, but totally an agnostic

soodle, I don't mind - my husband was so very well loved and respected - we had over 200 people at the funeral, all saying such wonderful things about him that I will always remember - I am fine, just exhausted
4:31 pm

new to manners too obvfiously
4:31 pm
jmcnrick

too bad he seemed ok last night -- maybe he didn't understand the society of babbleland
4:31 pm

well, i would put the big X on him if I were any of you. clearly, an idiot.
4:31 pm
jmcnrick

{{{JBV}}} sounds like it was lovely
4:31 pm
welki

i just read the chat from that exchange .. he starts off fine at 7:12, makes the remark at 7:19 (i think he just didn't think about what he was saying) and apologized twice for it after that
4:31 pm
bichon

what is this? A newbie who put his foot in his mouth
4:31 pm
JBV

he was a former school principal, school district administrator and very active in community affairs. I also just retired from a school administration job so we have a large network of support - plus, I have my Babble support!
4:32 pm
jmcnrick

well if he apologized then let it go
4:32 pm
welki

(still doesn't give him latitude to instruct anyone, but what the hey, maybe he's a young kid)

yes welki -but the fact that Molly DID change her sweet icon is upsetting. I want her to put it back! :)

No Bichon. He was a pure mongrel.
We got him from the resuce centre in June. He was so exuberant (sp?)
4:44 pm

my husband had had serious medical issues for many years and had been hospitalized twice in November - that's why you haven't seen me around here lately
4:45 pm

My girls have photos of him, a half hour before he died. Flying around in the snow, and just so full of life. It was a huge shock to my girls.. just how fragile life is. :-(
4:46 pm

stidmama

thanks for the CU
5:40 pm
stidmama

busy is okay then. I am glad I am not retired... LOL
5:40 pm
dfmchfhf

wire-metal (in latin) as a prefix, ore ending as a suffix?
Would that be a better clue?
5:41 pm
flosey

I've often said the same stid, retired people are free to volunteer EVERYWHERE!!!!!
5:41 pm
stidmama

(and they do!)
5:41 pm

5:45 pm

5:47 pm
dfmchfhf

Don't think I've met you before...
5:47 pm
stidmama

6:10 pm
flosey

at least, that's what I have
6:10 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Oh- I didn't see the up. I'm a little under the weather.
6:11 pm
cosdem

how can you tell which word is up?
6:11 pm
72 Temple Owl

that is really an intersting expression. how can one be either under or over the weather?
6:11 pm
dfmchfhf

hi cos! :o)
6:12 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Well, say here is the weather:---------------------
6:12 pm
dfmchfhf

TO If you're flying too high, all weather would be under you...
6:13 pm
Kaplan the Magne

That's if I'm feeling good. But if I'm sick, I'm under it.
6:13 pm

6:13 pm

I call my umbrella "The Weather", so when it's raining, I'm under The Weather.

"But I get a kick out of you."
6:15 pm
cosdem

6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

It's sort of like the fi word you just wrote, but with a lisp
6:16 pm
dfmchfhf

I'd clue it but again nobody would get it :o(
6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

No, that was in another grid.
6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Sorry.
6:16 pm
72 Temple Owl

my yam is possessed
6:17 pm

72 Temple Owl

i am nuking a yam and it is howling
6:17 pm
72 Temple Owl

6:17 pm

Even the chog, usually so coherent, is not making sense to me.
6:17 pm

6:19 pm
herinfernallady

TO thought about stabbing the yam first?
6:19 pm
dfmchfhf

Would stabbing a yam exorcise the possessing spirit? o.0
6:19 pm
72 Temple Owl

lol is that a cooking tip or should i drive a silver stake through it?:D
6:20 pm
cosdem

found it!
6:21 pm
herinfernallady

I think that it would give the yam air holes to breath out of. Either that or I find that with cooking things that make weird noises get stabbed to make sure they are really dead
6:22 pm
72 Temple Owl

ROFL
6:22 pm
herinfernallady

In this house the theory of repair is more duct tape or bigger hammer
6:23 pm
dfmchfhf

6:24 pm
72 Temple Owl

ChampFit

6:44 pm
72 Temple Owl

what are they? are they buckeyes?
6:45 pm
Mom

6:45 pm
MollyL

Hoo-ah! Mom made treats!
6:45 pm

6:46 pm
ChampFit

I know! My goofball 24 year old son ate 3 without looking at the label first. He couldn't leave the house most of the day!
6:46 pm
Mom

Hi Barb's Horses
6:47 pm
72 Temple Owl

now my dad claims no ill effects at all.
6:47 pm
Mom

I have mixed up refrigerator cookies and chocolate chip cookies but they are not baked
6:47 pm
ChampFit

Well, one at a time, maybe not. Although you probably don't want to be around too many peeps right after...
6:47 pm
Mom

I can put the dough in the pb
6:47 pm
MollyL

Dearest Mom, report to the PB for saying candy. I said it too so I'm right behind you and the treats.
6:48 pm

9:18 pm

drawbacks with kindle and nook are they are proprietory. only can buy amazon or barnes and noble books

I d/l Kindle to my laptop...don't have to buy a kindle to read that we
9:22 pm

Good point, Doren. First I am going to get a new XC-ski package for $380-480 or so.
9:22 pm
Pinikula

we = way
9:23 pm
Scrabbler

What do you mean, Pini?
9:23 pm
dfmchfhf

Problem with e-readers nowadays is that the formats are all proprietary... i.e. you can't read iPad ebooks on a Kindle...
9:23 pm
Dorens

you deserve both scrabbler
9:23 pm
72 Temple Owl

ok peeps, time to finish straightening up . doren if you have that email addy i'dappreciate it
9:23 pm
dfmchfhf

Most likely, in a few decades, we won't be able to read today's e-books at all.
9:23 pm

not all of them are proprietory. Kobo, sony, cruz and alibrus are not proprietory
9:23 pm

I love gadgets so "want" a Kindle, iPad, iPod Touch...
9:25 pm
lbdawger

most ebooks have to be downloaded to a computer then uploaded to the reader.
9:25 pm
Pinikula

I have an iTouch...comes in handy when killing time waiting for something/someone
9:25 pm
72 Temple Owl

9:25 pm
Dorens

unsure owl... will keep it open, ok
9:25 pm

Not til at least the spring. Winter is too uncertain for driving 6 hrs.

Very cool, Pini! I didn't know about that option.
9:30 pm
Pinikula

I opted to check it out before going out and getting an actual reader...that way I could "test drive" it before buying ;)
9:30 pm
dfmchfhf

thing about iPad is that unlike other e-books it requires active power.
9:30 pm
lbdawger

do a search for e-readers. wikipedia has a good comparison chart
9:30 pm
Pinikula

...and I don't actually have to buy the reader since the laptop is portable ;)
9:31 pm
dfmchfhf

e-books are weird, turning the pages is so~oo slow... the page takes ~0.3s to clear and 0.5s to render...
9:31 pm

but a single battery lasts practically forever.
