my first babble wall was just 33 words in,now at 38 lol
5:40 am
Scrabbler

Good morning Babble buddies! I wanted to sleep til 8 but awoke at 6:20, so here I am.
5:40 am
Scrabbler

Crossy, why are you awake so early?
5:44 am
Scrabbler

Where did everyone go? I bet Crossy is making one of his huge breakfasts.
5:45 am
MollyL

Morning Scrabs.
5:45 am
Scrabbler

Hi Molly! Another early awakener, I see.
5:46 am
MollyL

I have to get up early during the week. So I'm sort of programed for early rising.
5:47 am
Scrabbler

Me too--typically 6am. But I stayed up til midnight and hoped to sleep til 8.
5:47 am
Trifioso

hello friends.
5:47 am
MollyL

Mornin' Trif.
5:47 am
MollyL

Maybe a nap later Scrabs, to even things out.
5:47 am
Scrabbler

Hi Trif! I know you are up early with Indy.
5:48 am
Trifioso

LOL scrabbler, that is exactly it! No snooze button on that little guy
5:48 am
Scrabbler

I rarely nap, unless sick or really exhausted. I will XC-ski later and that will revive me.
5:49 am
Trifioso

if he was a baby patient of yours, you would be calling the NEJM - he gained 14 pounds in three weeks!
5:49 am
Scrabbler

Wow! Well, babies double their birth wt by 5 mo and triple it at 12 mo.
5:50 am
Scrabbler

Is he overpowering you on the leash?
5:50 am
Trifioso

not my babies! none of them ever made it to even double digits on that cursed scale. But their feet reach the ground, so it's all good
5:51 am
Trifioso

hmmmm- so far he is okay, a pretty soft lead, but he doesn't like the lead much, and often tries to back out of his collar. The vet says not to stress, he is still very, very young
5:52 am
MollyL

Trif, what did you mean with that double digit comment?
5:52 am
Scrabbler

Two of my friends have had Lab pups in the last 2 yrs, so I have seen Obie + Lily grow, learn tricks, be defiant, whimper during the night, etc.
5:53 am
Trifioso

morning molly! What I mean is that when I would take my kids to the pediatrician and he would weigh and measure them, they were also 7%, 4%, etc. on the scale of what kids should be.
5:54 am
Scrabbler

Oh, percentiles on the growth charts. DNA cannot be changed. These days we see obesity beginning in infants!
5:54 am
Trifioso

it was always so irritating, as I really didn't care where they fell on the scale, as they were grand, healthy, happy children. But OH how the moms compete with that one! "He is in the 99th percentile for height!" "she is in the 78 percentile for weight!"

That makes me crazy too! We want to see consistent growth, following the shape of the curve, but people think bigger = healthier and stronger.
5:55 am
Scrabbler

And, of course, fathers want big boys.
5:55 am
Trifioso

It made me snarky. "OH, 99 percentile for height at only 5 months! Has Harvard started recruiting yet?"
5:56 am
Scrabbler

We are just setting up an obesity management program with a nutritionist.
5:57 am
Scrabbler

Here's another maddening thing: when parents demonstrate their kids' knowledge. e.g. a 5 yr old that knows all of the state capitols yet she is a surly brat. Character + good manners trump GPA, in my mind.
5:59 am
Trifioso

I love the parents that take their less than one year olds to Disney. "and how did they find Peter? Different from the book?" God help us all
5:59 am
Scrabbler

I agree! Why bring an infant or toddler there?
6:00 am
Trifioso

so you can brag to your friends about how many times you have taken them, of course! Because taking your kids to disney apparently = great parent
6:01 am
Soodlebum

Hi Trif, Scrabbs, Moll, & assorted lurkers. :-)
6:02 am
Scrabbler

Even better is for a child to miss a week of school for a field trip to Disney.
6:02 am
Trifioso

soodle! how wonderful!
6:02 am
Scrabbler

Hi Soodlebum
6:02 am
Soodlebum

Hows things with everybody?
6:03 am
Trifioso

all quiet on the eastern front, soodle. How's you?
6:04 am
MollyL

Oh now I get it Trif. My kids were on the other side of that spectrum, but I never thought to brag about it. They just started out big and stayed that way.
6:04 am
Soodlebum

I have just inspected the puppy's basket. I found 2 x pairs of panties (mine), 3 socks, (odd), 2 shoes (also odd), 2 potatos, an onion , a hair brush and an empty potato chip packet!
6:04 am

My tea is done brewing. Anybody want some?

Hahaha, Soodle. That is funny!
6:04 am
Trifioso

is it decaf, scrabbler?
6:05 am
Trifioso

wow, molly, that is a LOT of man to feed!
6:05 am
Soodlebum

I'll have a cuppa, Scrabbs, please - Milk, no sugar!
6:05 am
Trifioso

I can upload some of the bagels I made on Thursday, if anyone would enjoy?
6:06 am
MollyL

Like I said, they started out big. When I was pregnant with my second son, the doctor guessed he would be smaller than my first. Birth weight for son number two was 11 pounds.
6:06 am
Soodlebum

Oh, bagels. Om nom nom....
6:06 am
Trifioso

on the plus side, molly, it sounds like you have lots of help for lifting heavy things, cleaning out gutters, etc.
6:06 am
Scrabbler

Not decaf. Orange pekoe/black tea.
6:06 am
Trifioso

11 POUNDS? please say you had a caesarean, please say you had a caesarean.....
6:06 am
Scrabbler

You made bagels?
6:07 am
MollyL

No cesarean and I can still walk and perform my womanly functions (very well).
6:07 am
Trifioso

yes scrabbler. crossy and I were discussing it the other day, and I wish he was still here, as I wanted to thank him for his suggestions
6:07 am

I BOW to you, Molly.

My son was 6 pounds born. He was the smallest in his class all thru school, then at age 16, he grew and grew and grew - to the extent he has stretch marks on his back. He is now 6ft 4!

6:09 am

A friend of mine has a brother who was premature. I think he weight one pound at birth. He currently goes about 220 and is six foot four.
6:09 am
Trifioso

I feel certain mr hate is descended from leprechauns, though they would most likely disavow that
6:10 am
MollyL

As for the 11 pound baby, I won't get into all the crude things that have been said about that in regards to my "abilities".
6:10 am
lil*monkey

hi all! i was 8 1/2 pounds at birth and i was quite the chubbette for the first 2 years of life
6:10 am

My little bro was 9-15 at birth, my mother's 4th and last. He is 6 ft 8 in as an adult and wears a size 16 shoe.

Scrabbler

I've been a chubbette since puberty.

HA! oh thanks, Trifi... thumb in mouth constantly
6:13 am
lil*monkey

so what's new, Brookie?
6:13 am
Trifioso

well, my kids are the size they are, and there isn't much I can do about it now, but I love them like crazy anyway. they were all about 8 pounds at birth, they just didn't grow much later. but they are great kids.
6:13 am
Brookie

Nice photo, lil!
6:13 am
MollyL

Aw Lil! What a cute picture. I wouldn't call that chubby though.
6:13 am
Soodlebum

Aw, diddums, Lil. How cute!
6:13 am
Brookie

Nothing much, lil. Just working and doing the mom thing. How about you?
6:13 am

oh thanks Molly :)
6:14 am

I went to see True Grit last night, it's terrible!
6:14 am
Soodlebum

Well said, Trif!
6:14 am
Trifioso

oh, and scrabbler - to answer your comment about DNA earlier - my mom used to laugh up her sleeves at her patients who had tons of plastic surgery, the mom and the dad, and then had the most horse-faced, crooked nosed kids in the world. Plastic surgery does NAUGHT to fix dna!
6:14 am
Brookie

Okay, fill me in. What's True Grit?
6:14 am
lil*monkey

it's a new movie with Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges
6:14 am
Trifioso

that's a surprise, monkey, as the reviews have been great, particularly regarding the young actress
6:14 am
MollyL

A re-make of an old John Wayne movie Brookie.
6:15 am
lil*monkey

the young actress is great, but overall a terrible movie
6:15 am
Brookie

Normally Matt Damon picks good movies to be in. Not so much for Jeff Bridges.
6:15 am

I have no interest in westerns.

the original True Grit had John Wayne, Glen Campbell and Dennis Hopper
6:17 am

crossy, there you are! many, many thanks for the bagel advice the other day. Really branched out and got adventurous. ended up making cinnamon raisin, onion, poppy seed, and sesame seed. Thank you so much for the tips!
6:17 am

Was the original a good film?

um YES

I really do appreciate it, and so do the kids, who were thrilled

it is like a funeral dirge,i am sorry:/
6:21 am
Nancy Boy

Not dismal...I love Larkin. Amuses me because the BBC still refuses to say "the eff word" when they read it on TV.
6:22 am
Trifioso

nancy, does the bbc still have that program where they have people read out letters that viewers have sent in?
6:22 am
lil*monkey

I agree with the message in NB's poem, and that's why I don't have children :)
6:22 am
lil*monkey

the buck stops here
6:22 am
Trifioso

I read the poem after I had kids, sorry!
6:22 am
crosshair

only thing missing is your dead dog rover and some extremely rare disease
6:22 am
Brookie

I think the message is that we should all adopt a little kitten instead, like in the pic.
6:23 am
crosshair

kids are a parents revenge and i am doing pennance lol
6:23 am

If I had parents like NB has described to us, that would be my anthem too!

I chose to have no kids--didn't want to mess them up which is what my experience was.

6:25 am
Brookie

Thanks for the clue!
6:26 am
Nancy Boy

we're not entirely sure, since he was a rescue. would guess coming up to a year now! he is learning to 'stalk'...follows your ankles and then bolts when you look at him :P
6:26 am
Trifioso

how adorable, nancy! what's his name?
6:26 am
Brookie

Aw, how cute! I used to have a cat who thought he was a dog... he was my fave cat.
6:27 am

i am glad we had a child.when growing up my da was very bigoted,racist,would invoke capital punishment for same sex couples if he could,racial slurs,you name it.i chose to be different and i have passed my thoughts on to my son and now he does not judge by race,creed,colour or sex...so i have changed my part of the world just a little bit and am glad we have our son

6:28 am

but you have just the one child? I thought you had a daughter as well?
6:28 am

Crossy, I think some people like you are able to break the trend, and unfortunately some others continue on the same path as their predecessors.
6:28 am
lil*monkey

medicine for diabetics, scrabbler
6:28 am
Trifioso

could someone else please ask nancy what the name of his kitten is, so he will answer them?
6:29 am
Soodlebum

My kids are hilarious. They think they invented the world..... sex, alcohol, how to drive etc etc.
6:29 am
crosshair

think he said the name was trusay
6:29 am
Scrabbler

Aha, Monkey--a very twisty word.
6:29 am
Trifioso

I am sure we were like that once too, soodle, and drove our parents equally crazy
6:29 am
lil*monkey

and on that note, soodlebum, MY parents act like they invented the world, and any idea I have is stupid and ridiculous and could not be valid
6:30 am

I have been a surrogate mother for my 3 nephews. Eldest is almost 23 and has lived with me since 16.

6:34 am

isn't it supposed to be sending messages to itself and such?
6:34 am
crosshair

it is,try restarting the program
6:34 am
Trifioso

which, the protein one?
6:35 am
crosshair

yup
6:35 am
Scrabbler

NB, he needed to be rescued.
6:35 am
Trifioso

I am thinking that it might be a problem with the sleep settings on the pc - if it goes to sleep, maybe it cuts off the folding?
6:35 am
crosshair

it is possible,but i have not had that issue as of yet
6:35 am
Trifioso

sigh. will keep at it.
6:36 am

if it keep up,you may have to do a fast uninstall with c cleaner and load the program again

windows 7 could turn a wise man insane...got 'the vista issue'; once again they have released something with no idea how it works.
6:39 am

the computer is put in a minimal state when in sleep mode or hybernate mode so will not be able to fold...not that it matters really.

All this crying about parenting is killing me. I've always said...I don't take the credit when they do something great; therefore, I won't take the blame when they screw up. We do the best we can at the time
6:53 am

when it finishes this one, does it get itself a new one to fold, or do I have to do that manually?
6:54 am

It will get it automatically, Trif.

it gets a fresh one itself

bye, Gramma. Not sure if that was directed at me (amongst others) or not, but I think there is sometimes a difference between parents "screwing up" and parents being pure, unadulterated evil.

There sure is, NB.

it is a great way to be more involved and actually be on the front lines of cancer research,i am glad you enjoy it and anything i do to help others with cancer is just a bonus for me

Hello, Molly :-)
6:58 am
MollyL

I don't think it's about taking credit for either the success or failure of our children. I think it's about being loving, responsible people as we parent. Some don't manage that. Damaged children are the result.
6:58 am
Trifioso

it's okay, molly, I do that all the time, owing to my apostrophe being entirely too close to the return
7:00 am
Trifioso

I would agree, molly, except that there is simply no way to avoid doing some good, and some damage. My children have the unfortunate luck to be raised by a human mom, you see. No matter how hard I try, I am going to make mistakes. It's a mathematical certainty. The key is to try to make the mistakes that don't damage much.
7:01 am

anyways,this insomnia is a killer(been up since 2 am really) think i will try for a tad more sleep and catch you all a bit later..i hope lol..or i may be back in 15 minutes,bloodshot eyes and all
7:01 am
Trifioso

I am no one's idea of a saint. When I am tired, or cross, or overwhelmed, my temper frays and I say things I shouldn't. and if I am having my period, FORGET it. So yes, sometimes my words are sharper than they should be, and I do worry about the damage that could cause.

this is going to sound highly judgemental of me, but the ones I just can't understand are the adoptive parents who adopt kids and then turf them over to nannies and rarely interact with them again. Why did they bother?

That's great that you're launching into that! My goal is to be a speech writer (non-political) with a specialty in humor. I'm going to start working on that in a few months, after I take care of some other things first.

10:51 am
crosshair

our govt in it,s infinate wisdom is no longer offering any of the tax tables in booklet form,you have to hunt them down and print them yourself
10:55 am
crosshair

oh well it is either pay the govt to do it for us or do it ourselves,works out same either way i suppose except doing it ourselves costs less as we are not making a kick ass govt wage lol
11:00 am

11:05 am
crosshair

ahh ok researched the dulcimer,it is a lap guitar of sorts
11:06 am
crosshair

crossy love the Hawaiian guitar
11:06 am
welki

there are a couple different types of dulcimer .. the lap dulcimer, a beautiful instrument that looks like an elongated violin and the hammer dulcimer, which is played with small mallets (the hammers)
11:06 am
welki

why yes he has, dorens :)
11:07 am
crosshair

i was looking at the lap versions then
11:08 am
welki

if you remember joan baez, her sister mimi was married to richard farina, a fiction/song writer who played the dulcimer (maybe you'll remember the song, 'pack up your sorrows')
11:08 am
Dorens

i was trying to remember who did that, thanks welki
11:08 am
welki

judi collins sang it, too
11:08 am
Dorens

my sister bought her husband a hammer dulcimer, which is nice, but not like the lap dulciimer
11:09 am
Dorens

yes, and i had (still have many) every judy collins album made
11:09 am
Dorens

i am a maid of constant sorrow
11:09 am
welki

very different sounds. the lap dulcimer traditionally plays a droning melody, the hammered dulcimer sounds more 'ethereal'
11:10 am
welki

i'm having a blast reminsiscing, but i have to stop procrastinating and get this day going .. .later, folks
11:11 am
Dorens

enjoy the day welki... i'm on youtube listening to judy be a maid of constant sorrow... and will move on from there

11:16 am

hey all. actually "in" a webinar atm, just wanted to check in quickly... I am SO happy to have some online resources. Turns out this particular seminar is right on target with something I am working on this quarter!
11:20 am

"decent" is better than awful, for sure. *offers choclit*

my master's project is going to be about how to provide instruction and access to digital literacies for rural and low-income students!!! (glad to finally have it pinned down)
11:24 am
crosshair

are you talking about texts in lit,pdf and e-pub formats? something they can download in an inexpensive kobo reader?
11:26 am
crosshair

schools would save a truckload of money if each kid had a reader and all texts were avaiilable for download in school resource room
11:28 am
crosshair

though e-pub is the way to go as all the libraries out here deal in e-pub format only
11:29 am
crosshair

i can access 22 county libraries from my desk with my e-reader;0
11:29 am
stidmama

actually those AND twitter, facebook, blogs, texting... there are a lot of ways to engage students in communications and literacy.
11:29 am
crosshair

indeed
11:29 am
stidmama

For me, it's about how to introduce the rural kids in my home community to technologies that are taken for granted in cities but are rare or unavailable to our kids
11:31 am
crosshair

yes,out in the boonies here many still only have dial-up and it makes doing work,reading or research very frustrating at times
11:31 am
stidmama

there are things that they will need if they go to college, and things they will need to enter certain types of employment
11:31 am
stidmama

exactly, cross!
11:31 am
crosshair

indeed
11:33 am
crosshair

but especially in the states you have a very brad at&t 3 g network unlike up here were there are very few providers and massive tracks of "dead" areas where there is not signal..period
11:33 am
crosshair

broad
11:33 am
crosshair

manufacturers are coming out this year with many inexpensive options to the i-pad
11:33 am
crosshair

some for under 200 dollars
11:34 am
crosshair

and that would be the best way for rural kids to get online and have all the educational advantages that the city kids enjoy with computers
11:35 am
stidmama

"dead air" is one of our issues, cross -- for example, our cell phones don't work at home. we have to drive about three miles to get in range
11:35 am
stidmama

and there are "dead" spots as one goes around and through the hills and along the shoreline.
11:35 am
crosshair

motorola has a interesting one set to ship this quarter it is called the "atrix" http://www.chipchick.com/2011/01/motor
ola-atrix.html
11:37 am
crosshair

our dead areas are hundreds miles across and is mostly everything above north bay:(
11:37 am
crosshair

but there are going to be many options opening up this year to get online at little cost
11:38 am
stidmama

glad to hear they are working on options!
11:39 am
crosshair

in india a company is gearing up to get schoolwork laptops to all students (who qualify) for under 200 dollars
11:39 am
stidmama

sometimes I wonder about our developing lack of patience... remember when we were kids and would wait more than a week sometimes to a reply to a letter we had sent? Phone calls at a distance were too expensive.
11:39 am
stidmama

Now we communicate instantly thousands of miles away just because...
11:39 am
crosshair

lol,this age is all about instant gratification
11:40 am
stidmama

yes, they are doing the laptop program for kids in many areas
11:41 am
crosshair

i can remember as a child talking with my granma in england,all that was available was the trans atlantic cable,and you would wait till sunday and have a list written down of everything you wished to say,cause you had exactly 5 minutes.the operator would connect you and you had to remember there was a 7 second delay on the line so you did not end up talking over each other
11:43 am
crosshair

you had to say "over" at the end of each topic to avoid confusion
11:43 am
crosshair

then wait for her voice to come back down the wire lol
11:43 am
stidmama

wow. that's pretty amazing... I just remember hollering so my grandparents on the other side of the continent could hear me.
11:44 am
stidmama

my kids didn't understand why sometimes older people "yell" when they get on a long distance call.
11:44 am
crosshair

thing was even a party line with 3 other families..our ring was 2 short and one long lol
11:44 am
crosshair

wife gives me heck for yelling on the cell phone all the time lol
11:46 am
crosshair

now a kid can whip out his i-phone and live video chat to his friend 6000 miles away in mere seconds
11:46 am
stidmama

LOL too funny.
11:46 am
stidmama

never been in a place with a party line, but my mother remembers such things
11:47 am
crosshair

yup,i used to get heck cause i liked to "listen in" when i was bored
11:48 am
crosshair

there used to be an art form to picking up a phone reciever without it making that single click sound on the line lol
11:48 am
