I just took first think old that popped into my mind
1:53 am
jillibus

didn't take much researching, flosey -- I just googled Old Stuff Day and this came up
1:53 am
flosey

ah, so it really is a "Day"
1:53 am
flosey

I didn't take the time to google
1:54 am
flosey

bridge here tomorrow, still a bit of tidying up to do
1:54 am
jillibus

But your "old stuff" is magnificent and the story is so wonderful!
1:55 am
jillibus

didyou finish this grid?
1:55 am
flosey

oh, thanks jilli, we were very pleased with the makeover
1:56 am
flosey

yes - and it took the time I should have been using to prepare for tomorrow
1:57 am
jillibus

fabulous, flosey! As you can see, this old slowpoke didn't yet. I think I'll be staying home tomorrow -- I hope you heard about the huge winds we're expecting.
1:57 am
flosey

not so bad today, down to 72 so should get it finished after supper tomorrow
1:58 am
flosey

yes, hope it doesn't mean we can't get our game in! am really anxious to be finished with the AH games
1:58 am
jillibus

oh -- thought you said youo had finished--but 72 left?
1:59 am
flosey

no, did finish yesterdays, the 72 is what I have yet to get of today's
1:59 am
jillibus

who do you play tomorrow?
1:59 am

Vonnie and Ruth - again, they're the couple we play twice
1:59 am

I'm hoping the GPS will help me FIND the darn place in the dark
2:10 am

it should jilli, houses are spaced and lots of trees, and rather long lanes was my impression, Is. and I played there but we started before lunchtime!
2:12 am
jillibus

Well, I said I was going to bed a while ago, so...*repoof*
2:12 am

I don't think I've ever played a night game, but some newer players are younger and work - making even more difficult to organize

6:05 am

for me to get it, it had to be easy lol
6:05 am

I don't understand enables food choices: why nori but not rosti?
6:06 am
rubyfoo

6:06 am
zoozzoom

6:06 am
rubyfoo

sorry, is there desert in the PB?
6:07 am
zoozzoom

6:08 am
rubyfoo

I would love that!
6:08 am
zoozzoom

i know..you did say Rosti..after all :-)
6:08 am
rubyfoo

do you cook, zzoozz? English specialties like Shepherd's Pie and Bangers and Mash? Local food here is awful
6:09 am
zoozzoom

I was a chef for many years, but have not worked for over a year now.
6:09 am
rubyfoo

what was your specialty?
6:10 am
zoozzoom

sauces mainly...but did all sorts for a hotel.
6:12 am
rubyfoo

when I was young, my fantasy was to open a country restaurant with a couple of friends. She was a fine French country cook, he was a carpenter and handsome, and I had the ideas and know-how. Needless to say, it came to naught!
6:14 am
zoozzoom

That is a shame it never happened, i am sure though there are many people who had ideas but never went ahead of them, not much comfort knowing that..but at least you are not alone.
6:14 am
rubyfoo

it would have been in rural New York state, and we would have bought an old house and lived upstairs.....
6:17 am
zoozzoom

Funny you should say that, as i have never even thought of NY, having a rural area..always have imagined it as very high rised buildings..i should of known better really.
6:18 am
rubyfoo

I lived in a tiny city (fewer than 90,000) 200 miles from MYC, Binghamton. It was a beautiful place surrounded by hills and small and big rivers
6:18 am
rubyfoo

NY state is very big
6:20 am
zoozzoom

Sounds like an ideal place to live, Ruby, i can hear the birds singing and the sound of the streams trickling...ok snap out of it me..back to the real world..lol
6:21 am
rubyfoo

he, in the foothills of the Alps, is even better. More birds, a garden, dogs, pretty house.
6:21 am

Binghamton was a dying town, losing population every year

Morning. I was so disappointed that I couldnt finish yesterday.
6:27 am
rubyfoo

who has that much time, red?
6:28 am
redturtlehead

If I had been off work I think I could have done it. I stopped at like 165 left.
6:28 am
rubyfoo

I think I had 278 words when I threw in the towel
6:28 am
redturtlehead

it was a fun grid.
6:28 am
rubyfoo

I spent more than 2 hours on it, just didn't have enough time
6:29 am
rubyfoo

I loved it, but it was very slow to enter words
6:29 am
redturtlehead

indeed...It was forever long
6:31 am
redturtlehead

this grid is also very nice.
6:34 am
redturtlehead

well, I am only 74 words in, so maybe it isnt/
6:36 am

126 words and taking a break. the first 100 were fine, now it is much more difficult for me! duh

If anyone is here, has Champfit been around?

Champ??

Hey red...just getting on...what's up?
6:40 am
ChampFit

Red???????
6:44 am
redturtlehead

Champ!!!
6:44 am
redturtlehead

Sorry I went off!
6:44 am
redturtlehead

I have a question...
6:44 am
ChampFit

still here...
6:45 am
redturtlehead

So The sellers bank has asked me to sign the "arm's Length Document" and also asked for a copy of my "pre-approval letter" from my bank. Is this a good thing?
6:46 am
ChampFit

Yes! They're making sure you're good for the loan. They're actually looking at your paperwork!
6:46 am
redturtlehead

Yay! I am assuming if they did not like the offer, they would have already outright rejected it?
6:47 am
ChampFit

Well, I can't really say that. Sometimes they don't look at the actual numbers as far as what they need to get on the house until late in the process. What bank is this?
6:48 am
redturtlehead

No one will tell me which bank it is. I know it is not Well Fargo, as that is my bank.
6:49 am
redturtlehead

Ugh. I really do not want to start to haggle over things and I hate to admit it, but I want to get it at this "steal" price.
6:49 am
ChampFit

Wonder why not? Odd...but I'd take it as a good sign that things are at least moving forward. Yay for you!!!
6:50 am
redturtlehead

I'm feeling positive, and of course, panicky. It is a commitment to live here! (Which I have done for 3 years already...so...hmmm)
6:51 am
redturtlehead

with the short sales people have tried to call the sellers bank for information and in general so a lot of things are kept "se****" so the buyer doesnt start to harass the bank!
6:51 am
ChampFit

Yes but you never know...and you can sell it later...things have to bounce back eventually. And you'll have awesome equity right off the bat!
6:51 am
redturtlehead

yes. the town home sold for 250K and is now going for 89K. All Granite in all bathrooms and kitchens, and TILE! I love tile with the dog.
6:52 am
MollyL

Red, sending good vibes your way. Looking forward to your house warming party. : D
6:52 am
ChampFit

Tile is the best, you're right. Swiffer that stuff right up!
6:52 am
redturtlehead

thanks Molly! It will probably be some time in June!
6:52 am
redturtlehead

I love tile! though it can be slippery.
6:53 am
ChampFit

Area rugs...no biggie!
6:53 am
redturtlehead

and when you get bored, you can get a new rug...
6:53 am
MollyL

I can't believe the drop in the price of that house. Property hasn't tanked that bad around here, thank God.
6:53 am
redturtlehead

I can not wait to get real furniture.
6:53 am
redturtlehead

Florida really seems to have been hit hard Molly.
6:53 am
MollyL

? What do you have now?
6:54 am
ChampFit

Crates? ;)
6:54 am
redturtlehead

Oh the put together stuff from Target, but I have no kitchen table...
6:54 am
redturtlehead

I also think Molly that the home was initally an inflated price. It is a tiny townhome!
6:54 am
MollyL

Oh, then it will be fun to furniture shop.
6:55 am
redturtlehead

I just have to wait. No big purchases! But I have been saving cash, so it will be really fun!
6:55 am
ChampFit

Red, that happened to a woman I know. She had this little house that went way up in value, but then dropped back down before she could take advantage of it.
6:56 am
redturtlehead

How is everyone else doing?
6:56 am
redturtlehead

oh not good Champ for her.
6:56 am

OOoooooohhh...I can't stress enough...do not buy anything while you're waiting! Credit drops so easily!

credit is odd. I will pay cash for the furniture. I actually pay cash for everything. But...I still dont want to chance it. I cringed paying rent this month!
6:58 am

Oh No! I hope you are recovering well Praise??

6:59 am

Glad to hear it. Surgery can take so much out of you, beyond the actual procedure!
6:59 am

Apparently, it's a bad move NOT to finance your car. Cars are crappy investments.

MollyL

There are crock pots that don't have a removable liner? How in the world do you clean them? I've had an oval one for years.
9:13 am
crosshair

some older ones,the liners do not come out,you have to fill them with water,put them on high and scrub
9:15 am
MollyL

That's awful. What a pain in the ass way to clean them.
9:15 am
MollyL

I did the Coca-Cola roast beef recipe over the weekend. That stuff has such a good flavor.
9:16 am

any clues out there??

Um...what would you bake in? I've had cake made in the crock pot and it's good and all that, but there are other things you can't bake in it.
9:18 am
Anniebrook

what do you need, mkg?
9:19 am

do not bake much at home anymore molly with the cost of flour,yeast,eggs and other ingredients,i find it just cheaper to go to the bakery and be there when it all is still on the cooling trays

Our prices for flour, yeast and eggs are still pretty reasonable. And to me, half the fun of baking is the smell you get when you bake. Especially bread.

9:24 am

there is a mass struggle here now to get solar planels on the roofs of houses,a full set on one side of an average bungalow costs 20-30 thousand,you set up a seperate meter and sell it directly to hydro ,they are buyinjg right now for 81 cents a kw
9:24 am
crosshair

a set of panels can be paid off in 6 years
9:25 am
crosshair

we are currently being billed 16 cents a kw,but add 40 percent to that in a year and you can see why we are all running for the panels
9:27 am
crosshair

it is cheaper for them to buy from us at 81 cents a kw,than the heavy importing they have to do in the summer
9:28 am
crosshair

smart new builder are putting the panels in at the start along with a green car hook up in the garage
9:28 am
uusue2

holy cow, 81 cents a kw? I pay in the single digits per kw most days (US cents instead of Canadian but I think they are similar)
9:29 am

about par atm uu
9:29 am

so we are paying 16 per kw..for now

Here is the Coke/beef crock pot recipe. It's hard to find the envelopes of dried spaghetti sauce mix. I use the McCormick dried Italian chicken seasoning
9:30 am
MollyL

2 - 4 pounds of chuck roast or beef brisket
1 cup chopped celery
1 package of Lipton's Beef Onion Soup
Salt and pepper to taste
Red pepper flakes to taste
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 teaspoons of paprika
1/2 cup ketchup
1 package of spaghetti sauce mix
1 cup Coke (don't use an impersonater)

Sear the meat in oil for a few minutes on each side.
While that commences, mix up all the rest of the stuff in a crock pot.
Put the seared meat in the crock pot.
Turn it once so both sides get the juice.
Cook it until it's falling apart.
Turn every hour or so.

9:30 am
uusue2

I have a friend who put one in; she said that if she put a solar panel on her roof she could go completely off the grid.
9:31 am

ty molly have it saved
9:32 am

indeed,uu,but with ont hydro paying 81,we are better off sell for now
9:32 am

9:33 am

selling it back at 81 cents a kw,we can cut our costs by 80%,hence the 6 year payoff on the panels

okay, this is a review of the literature. how "accurate" does the abstract normally need to be for something like that? I mean -- it appears on the surface that published abstracts are really sketchy, hitting only the high points... is my impression correct?
9:37 am
crosshair

it will not last but 6-8 years uu,once they get the infrastructure updated,they will stop importing on heavy load days,so now is the time carpe diem!

well, stid, the abstract shouldn't be INaccurate, of course, but it doesn't need to include everything that's in the paper. Just enough that someone reading it knows what the topic is and enough about it to know whether they want to read the actual paper or not.

My disc between L5 and S1 is basically gone, and the most degenerated part of the disc is on the outside, so my stretches need to open up that area, between those discs.

hi again, all!
12:57 pm
frogface

me being thick can i ask what a comparative word means lol
12:58 pm
hurshy

uusue, do you care to share why you chose the name uusue? some people's names are obvious - a computer savvy grandmother... etc... i get curious about the others
12:58 pm
uusue2

hi, hurshy - I chose it because I am a UU (Unitarian Universalist). Also it rhymes.
12:59 pm
uusue2

hi frog - a comparative word ends in -er, while the superlative ends in -est (so big, bigger, biggest)
1:00 pm
MollyL

Sue...love the icon! : D
1:00 pm
frogface

aww bless ya sue - but i guess im gonna struggle wiv that ur7 even with that info lol
1:01 pm
MollyL

u + Hawke, an actor who was in "Dead Poet Society" and other movies...and plural.
1:01 pm
MollyL

Sorry...ur +
1:01 pm
hurshy

well, while everything uusue said about comparatives and superlatives is correct, this U clue doesn't fall into that realm. it's another word... more **** one but less **** three is two.
1:01 pm
frogface

so how is han an ending for a comparative word?
1:01 pm
frogface

forgive my ignorance lol
1:03 pm
uusue2

sorry, I answered without looking at the original clue (a bit distracted, Dad is getting more independent and almost fell again)
1:03 pm
hurshy

and i explained before you asked :)
1:03 pm
MollyL

Not "han" Frog.
1:03 pm
cathy22w

hey all
1:03 pm

no molly i know but the last two letters of word are an, and comparative word is apparently er
1:04 pm
hurshy

see my 1:01 post frogface dear
1:04 pm
frogface

im not nitpicking, just trying to better my understanding of the language
1:04 pm
uusue2

hi, cathy!
1:05 pm
frogface

ok hurshy - i'll just go with the flow lol and sorry to be ignorant xxx
1:05 pm
MollyL

Comparative in the sense that the phrase "I am better **** you" compares you and I.
1:05 pm
cathy22w

i can't believe it won't take 'rosti'
1:05 pm
hurshy

but you needn't go with the flow, i explained it
1:05 pm
hurshy

and there, now molly did too.
1:05 pm
uusue2

oh, good explanation, Molly!
1:06 pm
uusue2

And it won't take "cred" or "woot" either. Obviously this dictionary has not been talking to my son :-)
1:06 pm
cathy22w

i tried cred and woot.... lol
1:07 pm
MollyL

Oh Lord, am I sick to death of people using the fake word "cred".
1:07 pm
hurshy

it's just short for credit... what's the big deal?
1:07 pm
hurshy

or, i suppose, for credibility.
1:07 pm
cathy22w

i thought it was short for 'credibility' too
1:08 pm
hurshy

yes i think credibility is really more what it is.
1:08 pm
hurshy

if you want to say credit, you have to say "props", lol
1:08 pm
uusue2

that's what I thought, hursh and cathy - lots of perfectly good words started out as shorter versions of other words (lab, for example)
1:08 pm
cathy22w

lol
1:08 pm
MollyL

I'm not a big fan of over used words.
1:08 pm
hurshy

fan short for fanatic :)
1:09 pm
hurshy

you must hate "a" "and" and "the" (i tease)
1:09 pm
cathy22w

Me neither.... but I don't fine "cred" that over-used really
1:10 pm
cathy22w

find*... oops. lol
1:10 pm
hurshy

now, "segue" is very overused - or was for awhile there, maybe it's fallen off a bit now.
1:11 pm
MollyL

Okay, well you all have a nice day.
1:11 pm
cathy22w

"anomaly" is one that is over-used in my company...
1:11 pm

molly you're not leaving cause i teased, i hope???
1:11 pm
cathy22w

bye, molly
1:11 pm
uusue2

I have mixed feelings about so-called made-up words - on the one hand it is good to be precise in one's language and not misuse words. On the other hand, language is an evolving thing, and all words are made up at some point or other.
1:13 pm
hurshy

i like to make up words, myself. i made up velocious, as a nice fancy word for fast. if you have high ferocity, you're ferocious; if you have high velocity, you're velocious!
1:13 pm
cathy22w

i agree, uusue. some things just can't be bothered to get stressed about.

He was a cheating, compulsive liar who spent all of the money that I worked for. I've now been at the same job for 15 years, and he averaged 15 jobs a year.
1:25 pm
hurshy

then you are clearly better off!
1:26 pm
hurshy

i feel like people are sadder when they thought they had a good thing, and then the guy left for a younger woman, or something, you know?
1:26 pm
jessmom

Yes, I am. Actually, he died in January. I was shocked to realize how much it hurt to lose him. I tried to make sure he had a relationship with our daughter...
1:27 pm
hurshy

that must have been a very emotionally confusing time
1:28 pm
jessmom

It was. Our daughter is turning 14 this month, and he was only 39. He was diabetic and took terrible care of himself.
1:28 pm
uusue2

sorry to hear that, jes (all of it!). Take care of yourself...
1:29 pm
uusue2

oh, no, jess - I hope your daughter is doing ok.
1:29 pm
hurshy

i hope you find good ways to help her deal with that - what a challenge.
1:30 pm
jessmom

Thanks uusue. It was a strange situation. I am glad she had a relationship with him, but I am also glad there was distance as well.
1:30 pm
jessmom

I am trying... There are some things that are going on at school now that I need to figure out. If only I knew what I was doing....
1:31 pm
uusue2

I have a similar situation with my son's father (he's still alive, though). It is hard. They have a relationship but not a close one (which is how my son wants it).
1:31 pm
hurshy

may i offer a suggestion? my parents are both alive and not divorced, and yet i'm in therapy talking about some of the difficult things that have happened involving them. i feel like if i had had some help figuring stuff out more at the time, it would have been easier and wouldn't have developed into depression and stuff. i wonder if a counselor would be helpful to your daughter in sorting out her feelings about her dad and his death.
1:32 pm
stidmama

**gentle hugs for jessmom**
1:33 pm
stidmama

hey again all
1:33 pm
uusue2

good idea, hurshy - I think sometimes we are afraid of counseling, and it really can be very helpful.
1:33 pm
uusue2

hi, stid!
1:33 pm
jessmom

I have thought of counseling. She has discussed the situation with teachers and the guidance counselor. She was present at the meeting with the doctors to talk about removing Gary from life support. She talked about this with them.
1:34 pm
jessmom

hi stid, thanks
1:34 pm
hurshy

my parents both need counseling themselves, but won't go. and yet, my sister IS a counselor! they ought not to see her, of course, but i think by being so down on the idea of going to anyone, they are sort of insulting her chosen profession!
1:34 pm
stidmama

jess, there are some good grief support groups as well, specifically for teens and young people
1:35 pm

2:30 pm
dianedecoder

I'd love to send the pictures to some curator at a museum,... don't know how one finds links etc. to do that. I guess I'll just have to tell my friend to go to the Travelling Antique show !!!

2:31 pm
CadFan

Looks like an old one of those kits they use for business peoples lunches in India. I have a number of Indian students - I'll have them check the inscription. Also have Arabic students (and for that matter Japanese, Chinese and Serbian)
2:32 pm
MollyL

I'm very intrigued by that Diane. I can't wait to find out what it is.

2:34 pm
dianedecoder

LOL. ... maybe a container for cremated ashes ? It's not very big... about 8 inches high... and then about 4 x 5 ...sort of oval shape I think
2:36 pm
MollyL

Every time I look at it, it reminds me of the things that they use to dispense incense in Mass.

i do also want to get healthy, toned, stamina, yadayadayada... but i have to be honest with myself that first and foremost, what i truly want is to lose weight.
5:58 pm
periwinkle

then go for it, Eva, you can do it!!
5:58 pm
EvaNadine

yes, i think she came out a few years ago...
5:58 pm
MollyL

I did know that, but I think she's just recently gone public with it. I think in her Family Ties days, she was married. I saw Michael Gross, the Dad from Family Ties, playing a gay man on Brothers & Sisters. He was very convincing, but he's straight.
5:59 pm
periwinkle

she apparently went public about a year ago and recently wrote a book. She was alo an alcoholic
5:59 pm
periwinkle

she seemed very happy today with her partner
5:59 pm
MollyL

I didn't know she was an alcoholic. That's interesting, because when Tom Hanks was on the show, playing her brother, his character was an alcoholic.
6:02 pm
MollyL

Wasn't she married to David Birney, from the Bridget Loves Bernie days?
6:02 pm
periwinkle

yes but aspparently he was physically as well as emotionallly abusive to her during their 15 year marriage
6:04 pm
MollyL

Oh, that's sad.
6:05 pm

she told no one when she was working on Family Ties. but she seem happy now

8:09 pm
Dorens

met me!!
8:09 pm
72 Temple Owl

amen, molly. to have lived through that era musically was amazing.
8:09 pm
rururocks

oh.. yes.. well.. that is someone famous I've met
8:09 pm
72 Temple Owl

dave van ronk was great
8:10 pm
rururocks

I don't remember him.. know the name.. not the music
8:10 pm
Dorens

i "hooked up" with Steve Katz, of the Blues Project... later Blood Sweat and Tears (not my finest hour actually) Also Richie Lewis (later a ridiculous shtick comedian)
8:10 pm
rururocks

LOVE blood sweat and tears
8:11 pm

8:12 pm
72 Temple Owl

there was no bst without him. daivd clayton thomas? please.
8:13 pm
Dorens

i know this sounds ridiculous, but he actually used the term "blood sweat and tears" in describing how hard they work. as far as hook up, i dunno, ruru, but the kids use it a lot and it sounds satisfactorally ambiguous
8:13 pm
uusue2

I also went to high school with Meryl Streep (she was a year ahead of me). She was also at Yale when I was there (she was in the drama school, I was in the graduate school). Used to see her at the law school dining room, which was the cheapest place to eat on campus.

I am stopping at 200 wo4/9s. Now I will lend you a ha 4/6 with a story of clues. It's no se6/21 I'm addicted to Babble.I love it when Babblela4/6 is cr5/22ed with ho 6/24 of people. Hubby is a sn4/4 when it comes to Babble. He gives me a sn5/10y attitude every time I babble and it really te4/4s my patience. He has tried to de 6/24 me from babbling. If I have to endu4/6 his addiction,then he has to the same for me.In fact, he plays Farmville more th4/5 I play Babble. He spend to 4/4 of time on his farm. Once hubby is on Farmville, I can't st 5/10 his attention away from it.Who is he to make such ru4/6 comments about my addiction? Our addictions is the ro4/4 of a majority of our problems Sometimes I believe I should throw this computer out into the st 5/10. Cr4/7! Hubby wants the computer. I already told him to cool his je4/9 and get lo4/4, but that was two hours ago at the on5/10 of my babbling time. He is such a lo 5/10 when it comes to Farmville. Wish I could send his farm animals to the no5/12 pole where they could freeze to death. Anyway, I better give him the laptop or he wo 4/8 leave me alone. It is not wo5/20 it to argu with him since I know I wo 4/8 finish the grid anyway.Hope you have made no4/4 of some of my clues I wr 5/18 in my story. I am going to watch a BrandonLee movie: The Cr 4/9 for the re4/4 of the night.Goodnight babblers.I'll see you tomorrow
