I usually use Firefox but for some reason Babble defaults to IE.
12:08 am
dcseain

if you use expert, that makes sense, as expert runs in IE
12:08 am
jillibus

Yet Lickety's page used to say it works best with Firefox. Don't know if it still does.
12:09 am
Erda

I finally got it to load...SO boring!!
12:09 am
jillibus

good, Erda -- how did you do it?
12:09 am
cybernan

reading chog -- I went back to IE 8 as well, but use firefox for this
12:10 am

Just kept going in and out until I (almost) got blue in the face...
12:11 am
MLFAN17

cyber in general do you like firefox better then IE?
12:12 am
dcseain

I like FF over IE by far.
12:12 am
dcseain

on Mack, i like Chrome, FF, Safari, in that order.
12:12 am
joshuavorbis

at this point the only reason to use ie instead of ff is if a very important site to you works only with ie, or if you are not willing to make small adjustments to get used to another browser
12:13 am
MLFAN17

i hsve used both
12:13 am
joshuavorbis

firefox is vastly superior to ie in every way except for very specific and rare site compatibility issues
12:13 am
cybernan

looking for all these french words, but not seeing them - just one that is also commonly used in english
12:31 am

that le5 is French for "light, frivolous". It's also a misspelling of an accounts book.

oh - yes forgot about that one
12:31 am

it is also the surname of a wonderful french avantgarde filmmaker from the 1920s

1:34 am

1:34 am

terribly frustrated dc. We are taking it off in October if it hasn't sold. I refuse to go through the holidays and upcoming wedding and have to worry about showings.

1:37 am
VolleymomDee

So we don't HAVE to sell immediately.... just hoped it would all fall into place quickly... surprised it hasn't since we priced so low
1:38 am

yes, it is QUITE the house at that price. OTOH, such home would cost 600k or so where i live, so what do i know.
1:38 am

that may be the solution in the end... I was just excited about a new chapter... we have been here 32 years...

duck boat on wheels - does the tour around the city in and out of the water...pretty cool
7:52 am
Riverdance

did the replacement not work so well?
7:52 am
Judi

Duck boats are fun. We did one in Baltimore and one in San Antonio.
7:53 am
robbie09

7:53 am
uusue2

7:53 am
Riverdance

sorry to hear that sue - have you been back to the ortho
7:54 am
uusue2

there are duck boats in the Wisconsin Dells also, which look like fun (as opposed to the rest of the Dells, which is a total tourist trap)
7:54 am
robbie09

Count me in on the duck boat tour!
7:54 am
uusue2

no, river, but I am starting to think about it; of course the ortho that did them is not on my current insurance plan :-(
7:54 am

years ago, one of my little granddaughter, if watching Alice in Wonderland , would come scooting in wherever I was and stand by me for a few minutes. I'd say "oh oh... is the Jabberwocky there?" .... She didn't like him, and would stay with me until that part was over !!

Funny, the same exact conversation happened on facebook this morning.
3:09 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Not really.
3:10 pm
Kaplan the Magne

apparently another meaning of the bu5 is an ancient Roman pendant, consisting of a rounded box containing an amulet. Such a handy word.
3:11 pm
Kaplan the Magne

There are some words that are really unecessary.
3:12 pm
Kaplan the Magne

If I used it in a conversation, I would be asked "what the hell is a bu5?" So I would have to define it anyway.
3:12 pm
Judi

Afternoon, all. Apparently the Babble seizure from this morning is over.
3:12 pm
Soodlebum

Hmm. Next time I meet an ancient roman with a pendant, I will be delighted to say Hey! Nice Bu5!
3:13 pm
Soodlebum

Hello Judi :-)
3:13 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Or Bu5 for you!
3:14 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Someone could be offended if I said "hey nice bu5." They might not want attention called to the protrusion on their tympanic bone.
3:14 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I would be really embarrassed and have to explain, no, I meant your PENDANT! Really I did.

and does Enable really never eat creme brulee? Enable is really missing out...
9:13 pm
Jacula

Yes, I tried brulee, too.
9:14 pm
Jacula

I also tried 'bruce' but Enable was having no4 of that either!
9:14 pm

it does not take an indian samosa either
9:15 pm
Jacula

But it allows naan bread, crossy.
9:15 pm

indeed
9:15 pm

go figure...
9:15 pm

I found a lot of words it wouldn't take today.
9:16 pm
Jacula

I think it allows 'curry' and 'ri4. LOL
9:16 pm
crosshair

it does not allow 'basmati"
9:17 pm
Jacula

I don't think 'spaghetti' has ever been in the grid, but it alllows 'pasta'.
9:18 pm
Jacula

crossy - but it allows 'jasmine', 'long' & 'grain' and 'short'...
9:18 pm
crosshair

but does not allow grappa:((
9:18 pm
Jacula

I think it also allows 'risotto'.
9:19 pm
crosshair

we must teach enable all the international delicacies
9:19 pm
Jacula

Enable wants us to eat and drink in a healthy fashion. LOL
9:19 pm
uusue2

you can find out by typing any word in the "add word" box - if it takes it it will say that it "does not exist in the puzzle"
9:20 pm
Jacula

crossy - all is not lost; Enable does allow 'bacon'.
9:20 pm
wht

If Enable want's us to be so healthy, why does it drive us to drink?
9:20 pm
Jacula

uusue - I'm just winging it with years of experience on Babble.

We are just here getting bent out of shape by Enable.
9:24 pm
Jacula

sue - geeks are good; you never know when you might need them in an emergency. I'm thinking of the TV series 'A Town Called Eureka' right now when Douglas Fargo uttered the classic line, 'Oh my God! I've just scraped the ISS. Now they'll never let me be an astronaut!'

What's Enable?
9:24 pm
uusue2

and after years of babbling we are quite twister :-)
9:25 pm
uusue2

lol, jac!
9:25 pm
uusue2

and what I meant to say was twisted, sigh
9:25 pm
Jacula

Hello origami. Enable is the dictionary (somewhat out of date) that Babble uses to say what words we can and can't have.
9:26 pm

I see. Sometimes I'm confused about what's allowed and what's now. I'll blame it on Enable from now on :-)

It gives us something to complain about on slow nights.
9:26 pm

always blame enable
9:26 pm

i do
9:28 pm

We used to blame FMitch at one time, but we're letting her off the hook for now.
9:29 pm
crosshair

tbh,i have not seen fm in a while
9:30 pm
Jacula

Origami - it may amaze you that Enable has never heard of the word 'internet'. It doesn't knows about emails either.
9:30 pm
Jacula

crossy - FM's mum died.
9:30 pm
origami

There are some serious gaps in enable indeed!
9:30 pm

thats because computer speak is less than 20 or 30 years olds lol
9:30 pm

:( i am sorry..i did not know
9:32 pm
Jacula

The Scrabble dictionary now allows ebayer, ebayers, ebaying and ebayings. Enable wouldn't know where to go to sell stuff other than a market.
9:33 pm
Jacula

crossy - I'm not sure FM has been in to say that.
9:33 pm
origami

The Scrabble dictionary doesn't allow some of the words that Enable apparently does either. Oh well.
9:34 pm
crosshair

ok, i must bid you al a good night my babble buddies,as a comfy bed and James Herriot are calling me.tc all and happy babbling...poink!
9:34 pm

origami - well, that's half the fun of it, remembering what's allowed in which game, if you play a lot of words games like wot I do. LOL

Anyone need more clues before I go?
9:40 pm
Jacula

EvaN - I suppose, should we see you on webcam, that you're blowing and puffing on your nails and generally looking like a looney? You do realise that if you've put 3 coats on they WILL take more than half an hour to harden and that you WILL muck up at least one of them before you leave the house?
9:40 pm
Jacula

what - not me.
9:41 pm
Jacula

Bye sue!
9:41 pm
EvaNadine

only 2 thin coats so far, and now blowing. i am planning on using my nail-stamping system, so i do need to let them dry quite a bit before getting to that part.
only going to bed after that, so not a chance i will mess them up...lol
9:41 pm
Jacula

I once bought a kitten-shaped nail dryer. It didn't really work, just saved a bit of my puff.
9:41 pm
EvaNadine

no* blowing
9:42 pm
EvaNadine

thankfully, this color is very thin + thus dries pretty darned fast
9:42 pm
Jacula

Ah, going to bed when you think your nail varnish is dry... only to wake up to find linen cross-prints on your nails.
9:43 pm
EvaNadine

i call that "texture"
9:43 pm
EvaNadine

its totally planned. ;)
9:43 pm
Jacula

LOL
9:44 pm
wht

well good night all. Happy Babbling and nail drying.
9:45 pm
Jacula

EvaN - unless someone in the fashion world suddenly makes 'texture' a part of the nail look, do you think you will get away with that?
9:45 pm
Jacula

Goodnight wht.
9:46 pm
Jacula

It's not 'Hollywood', is it, EvaN? LOL

I beg to differ, EvaN! Not only did I start the trend for ridged and/or textured nail varnish, I was also wering nude shoes back in 1983!
