never saw the question, vanilla. How do you mean? This very grid? Or a grid designed for dutch words?
2:21 am
vanillaslice

this grid? surely you can't design a grid for dutch words
2:21 am
sprite

of course it is tough, Kiwi. It may be the best for her and you will do it, but it is not the best for you and so you mourn.
2:22 am
sprite

actually, yes, you can. This grid is for english, and has a kind of formula for which letters are used more often and which less. It has some dutch words but not many.
2:22 am
vanillaslice

maybe i should come over and have a drink with you Kiwi
2:23 am
vanillaslice

fair enough, you'd have to more vowels and less c,y
2:24 am
GroovyKiwi

by the time you got here ill probably be passed out lol
2:24 am
sprite

exactly. And I would go about it the same as I do now. Look, type all the words I see, and then go hunting for the rest. I think though, will all the excercise I have had in english grids, I would find a dutch one much harder.
2:24 am

Some birch trees too. Buying saplings would have been ideal but far more expensive.

9:07 am
wvteach

good day to stay in at the computer, but have already been out once and have to go out again this afternoon
9:08 am
bichon

I wouldn't mind walking in the rain, but the fluffs would. When it's like this, they won't even want to poop outside.
9:09 am
wvteach

must have been windy last night along with the rain - lots of leaves down on the grass
9:10 am
bichon

this year's folliage season is a bust. With all the rain we had in Aug & Sept., it's pretty poor
9:11 am
wvteach

i have been surprised that we have (had) as much color as we did because of the dry summer and then the heavy rain also in Aug / Sept
9:12 am
bichon

I think you've had much more of a drought this summer than we did. We've had over 20" more rain than average this year. My m.i.l. in Richmond complains about the lack of rain there all the time.
9:13 am
wvteach

this summer was unusually hot and also dry
9:14 am
bichon

I haven't taken my winter clothes out from the attic yet, it's been so warm
9:15 am

have gotten out some long sleeve shirts and sweat shirts - have a sweat shirt on right now from being out early to take my granddaughter to school
9:17 am

son and DIL are away for 10 days and the two grandmas have split up the tasks of caring for the two grandchildren for each day
9:18 am

wow, ten day vacation for them. That's neat. My grand daughter will be staying over night tomorrow. We are going to bake cookies.
9:19 am
wvteach

son has a conference and DIL going along to make it a vacation in San Francisco - neither has ever been there. My granddaughter (5) often stays over on the weekends and she also likes to help with the baking. The grandson is only 11 months old.
9:20 am
bichon

SF, lucky them. I visit the Bay Area a lot as son and family live there. So much to do.
9:21 am
wvteach

They just left last night and come back next Saturday. Think the conference probably starts Monday so they have this weekend to both be tourists
9:22 am
bichon

The weather's nice there at this time of year. It's before the rains start and usually sunny and mild
9:22 am
crosshair

good morning everyone:) reading back,since we have already had 2 frosts up here,the last 2 weeks have been amazing with the fall colours,but now it has rained for the last 3 days and is supposed to rain for 3 more
9:23 am
wvteach

DIL couldn't decide yesterday what kinds of clothes to back - warm or cool weather. So she packed both - she slways has much more than she needs.
9:24 am
bichon

It's quite warm there now. It was 83 in San Mateo [south of the airport] yesterday
9:24 am
wvteach

i assume, crossy, that you have lots of reds with the maples. We have mostly yellows with a little red
9:24 am
bichon

crossy, defragged yesterday and it didn't find anything to defrag. It's a fairly new computer
9:25 am

bright reds,yellows,and a variety or oranges
9:25 am

I love fall too: apple picking, long walks in the cool crip air
9:26 am
bichon

crossy, can you defrag a Mac?
9:27 am
crosshair

all our orchards are harvesting now:) there must be 30 varieties of apple bins at the market:))))
9:27 am
crosshair

i am sure you can bichon,but i have never owned a mac
9:27 am
crosshair

anything with a internal hard drive should have a way to be defragged
9:27 am
bichon

I guess I can google it
9:27 am
crosshair

but i see the new solid state drives do not
9:29 am
bichon

It sounded like you have to use third party software or reinitialize the hard drive. I am not doing that
9:30 am
bichon

My Mac is old and tired. I wanted my sone who works at Google to do it, but he didn't want to
9:31 am
crosshair

i see,seems bichon that mac do not have a onboard framentation program and you must use 3rd party software..so caution is reccomended
9:31 am
bichon

I dont think it is worth it.
9:31 am
crosshair

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1634
9:32 am
crosshair

snap btw lol
9:33 am
crosshair

and since most apples i see are all in one units,we cannot just swap out the old hard drive if a problem occurs(thats why crossy makes his own)
9:34 am
crosshair

though dealing with windows and mr gates can be a pain:/
9:34 am
crosshair

i cannot wait till the google os ships
9:34 am
bichon

Think I'll just leave as is. I mostly use my new Dell laptop
9:35 am
crosshair

dell..shudder
9:35 am
bichon

I haven't heard anything about the google os
9:35 am
crosshair

it is in the works
9:36 am
crosshair

i am having a great time with my first experience with an andriod os on the wifes tablet..it is quite fun:))
9:38 am
crosshair

first week was hard,i kept trying to do things the old hard windows way that is ingrained in all of us,but once i sat back and let it do all the work for me,it was easy lol
9:38 am
bichon

I don't have a tablet. but I do have an android phone
9:38 am
crosshair

well,when you do decide on a tablet,get an andriod one
9:39 am
crosshair

samsung galaxy tablet or the asus transformer tab would be my 2 reccomendations
9:39 am
bichon

I don't know why I would get a tablet. What would I do on it I couldn't do on a laptop
9:40 am
crosshair

you can sit on the john and play babble at the same time,without balancing it on yer knees lol
9:40 am
bichon

no, seriously, what is the big difference
9:40 am
crosshair

and bichon,check this..my tablet has a 16 hour!!! battery life!
9:40 am
crosshair

that is one big diff
9:41 am
crosshair

with my asus,it had a keyboard docking station,so it can be a tablet or a laptop
9:41 am
bichon

Okay, I can understand 16 hour battery life, but I don't play games except Babble
9:42 am
crosshair

it is also an e-book reader that can fit in the hands comfortably when you untether it from the keyboard
9:43 am
crosshair

it is a video camera,a regular camer as well,and does voice/picture phone calls
9:43 am
bichon

I like to listen to books on CD, which I download to my Ipod. I think I've reached the limit of what I want with electronics
9:43 am
crosshair

i have a program in it that can set it up as a ham radio and monitor all the ems frequencies....
9:44 am
crosshair

but that is fine as well bichon,we all have our gadget threshold
9:44 am
bichon

My d.i.l. is considering giving the 4 y.o. her Ipod so she can play with it. is this where we are going?
9:44 am
crosshair

but this tablet is set to replace my phone,my ham radio and my desktop computer..so i shall only have a single gadget
9:45 am
crosshair

i think so bichon

10:35 am
crosshair

and for the average,use it 3 years and toss it consumer,dell is fine..but you ladies have no idea of frustration till you have tried to update gpu drivers on a dell product,they are proprietary,so you cannot just go to the nvidia site or other gpu sites for them
10:36 am
crosshair

all dell gpu driver MUST be upgraded via the dell site itelf:((
10:37 am
crosshair

and that is a royal p,i,t,a

I wanted to buy a money order today at my bank and the teller said it would be

hi, peri and bye, nan!
3:56 pm
periwinkle

$5.00!!!! I did not buy it.
3:56 pm
Soodle

(((Nan))) see you soon. Hi(((Peri)))
3:57 pm
uusue2

ah, I've been wondering what to do about money when we travel abroad over the holidays - I don't think anybody uses travelers checks any more. Probably I will just use credit cards.
3:58 pm
Soodle

Where are you heading to Sue?
3:59 pm
MollyL

Peri, money order fees are ridiculous. They soak people who have to pay with money orders because they have bank problems.
4:00 pm
uusue2

Israel, soodle, with a stopover in Paris (although we won't have time to leave the airport)
4:00 pm
periwinkle

I have plenty of money in the bank and she wanted me to change the type of acct I have and therefore get free money orders. I said no the money would not be staying there lone :)
4:00 pm
uusue2

smart move, peri!
4:00 pm
periwinkle

and I have only sent one money order in my life about 5 years ago and I think it cost a dollar but not sure
4:01 pm
periwinkle

staying there long even.
4:03 pm
Soodle

Sheesh... Banks, eh? Sue, that sounds like a marvelous trip. When do you go?
4:04 pm
periwinkle

and this is a bank that wants to charge me $5 a month to use my debit card!!!!
4:04 pm
periwinkle

thinking of changing banks but the rest will probably start doing the same thing
4:05 pm
MollyL

I highly recommend that anyone dealing with a bank that is going with 5 dollars a month to use a debit card shop around for a bank that doesn't. The smaller banks are not doing this.
4:05 pm
periwinkle

think I wlll do that
4:06 pm
uusue2

we leave on Dec. 25th (cheap tickets then!) and return on January 5th.
4:06 pm
MollyL

This is going to backfire on the banks. People are going to start writing checks again.
4:07 pm
periwinkle

I still write check and pay bills by mail but not many
4:07 pm
uusue2

One of my son's cousins is getting married on December 30th at Kibbutz Yahel, which is in the Negev north of Eilat (in case anyone knows the geography of Israel)
4:07 pm
periwinkle

I try to withdraw enough money for the week but usually need to use the debit card anyway and it makes no difference how often you use it it is still $5
4:08 pm
periwinkle

you you get to see any of the babblers in Israel
4:08 pm
uusue2

I do most of my bill-paying online, directly with the billing site. This works well for me - I don't have to worry about buying stamps or how long the mail will take
4:08 pm
MollyL

I've never known anyone who traveled on Christmas Day. I will be interested to hear what that is like.
4:08 pm
uusue2

I've talked to michnick, peri, she's the only one I really know in Israel. Who else is there?
4:08 pm
uusue2

I'm hoping it won't be too crowded, Molly!
4:09 pm
periwinkle

I have traveled by plane on a holiday, think it was 4th of July and it was fine. also traveled by train on Thanksgiving weekend and it was mobbed
4:09 pm
MollyL

I would think it would be just the opposite Sue.
4:09 pm
uusue2

I almost never use cash any more, and pretty much never use my debit card.
4:09 pm
periwinkle

think she is the only one, sue
4:10 pm
periwinkle

what do you use to pay for groceries, etc, sue?
4:10 pm
uusue2

well, we'll see, Molly - the tickets were a lot cheaper that day than for several days before and after
4:10 pm
MollyL

I'm just the opposite. I hardly ever use my credit cards.
4:10 pm
uusue2

but pretty much all the airplanes I've flown on lately have been completely full so it may not matter
4:11 pm
periwinkle

still 109 to find here
4:11 pm
uusue2

I use credit cards and then pay them off at the end of the month, peri - my main card gives me at least 1% back every month, and up to 5% in certain categories
4:11 pm
Soodle

I went to Isreal once... It was absolutely incredible. We were on holiday inCyprus, so it was a reasonably short hop over to the Holy Land. That was about 25 years ago, but it is still very vivid in my memory.
4:11 pm
uusue2

I also hardly ever carry cash.
4:12 pm
uusue2

I've been there before, soodle, and am very much looking forward to going back! Had an amazing trip both times.
4:12 pm
Soodle

<I hardly ever HAVE cash....
4:12 pm
periwinkle

that is an idea sue.
4:12 pm
uusue2

but you have to be careful about paying them off, otherwise the balance can build up (which mine is doing right now, due to the plane tickets...)
4:13 pm
uusue2

and that too, soodle :-)
4:13 pm
rastapopolous

We put dollars into our daughter's US account, so they have dollars when they come over here. Then they give us euros when we get to France. This way neither of us pays a commission. Just the exchange rate.
4:13 pm
Soodle

LOL
4:14 pm
rastapopolous

You have to know someone for that to work, though
4:14 pm
Soodle

Thats an excellent plan, Rasta.
4:18 pm
uusue2

hmmm, not sure that would work with my Israeli relatives as they don't travel here much; they are hosting us the whole time though (we had several offers to pick us up at the airport, and were told that we did not need to fly to Eilat - just to Tel Aviv and then we could get a ride with someone to the wedding)
4:18 pm
uusue2

anyway, I am very excited about the trip!!! I will be sure to take lots of pictures, too!
4:19 pm
rastapopolous

you can order foreign money from your bank in advance - if you're a good customer, there may be only a trivial charge. Otherwise the ATMs are are good as anything.

I remember when he played with the Chicago Bulls - a local menswear store put a portrait of him on their wall facing the expressway (they usuallly had a portrait of some well-known Chicago personality there) - it stopped traffic. After a week they painted it over.

*Passing Soodle a tweezers*
4:37 pm

Arod, and how do you know it was not simultaneously?
4:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

isn't it a tweezer?
4:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Isn't tweezers plural?
4:38 pm
uusue2

he was, to put it mildly, flamboyant (still on Mr. Ro6)
4:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Don't go there Molly.
4:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

a scissor. a tweezer.
4:38 pm
MollyL

Picky, picky, picky. I call them tweezers.
4:39 pm
Kaplan the Magne

it or them- if it's "them" then it's not "a"
4:39 pm
Kaplan the Magne

consistency- the hobgoblin of little minds.
4:39 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Is that the expression?
4:40 pm
Kaplan the Magne

a tweezer. Tweezers. My brain is so tired I was just trying to remember whether you can use "a" with a plural.
4:40 pm
uusue2

so it is, Kap
4:41 pm
uusue2

probably you would say a pair of tweezers, just like a pair of scissors
4:41 pm
uusue2

then you can have your "a" and your plural too :-)
4:42 pm
Kaplan the Magne

One tweeze? I could never figure out that thing with scissors. I guess you can't use one scizz- you can only use two of them. So is one side of a scissors a sciss? I told you my brain is tired.
4:43 pm
Kaplan the Magne

what other words are like this?
4:43 pm
uusue2

pants
4:43 pm
bichon

what is this ro 6 with scissors
4:43 pm
Kaplan the Magne

duh. right. a pant.
4:44 pm
Kaplan the Magne

In some stores when they are being fancy, they say "this is a pant" as in "this is not a legging, it is a pant."
4:44 pm
Kaplan the Magne

any more words like that?
4:45 pm
uusue2

I don't go to fancy stores. In WalMart they are pants.
4:45 pm
MollyL

I cut with scissors, pluck with tweezers and wear pants. I don't have a scissor, a tweezer or a pair of pant.
4:45 pm
MollyL

Do they have "slack" too? Yee Gods.
4:46 pm
Kaplan the Magne

They are always taking up the slack.
4:47 pm
Kaplan the Magne

They don't give me any slack.
4:47 pm

Slackers.

i wanted heron as my nick here, but it was taken
5:48 pm

I saw it sitting there on the railing from a distance, and thought, that's no goose! (the lagoon was full of geese)
5:49 pm
uusue2

I walked as close to it as I thought I could get without spooking it and then took the picture
5:50 pm
welki

a gift to find one so close .. when i lived back east, i had a nesting pair in the back yard. had a trout stream bordering the property, so there was plenty of food ... they'd come back every year
5:50 pm

in order to avoid the usual trauma and bloodshed I did a stealth entrapment. Turned the tv up high, tiptoed down to the basement to get the carrier. Hid the carried in the bathroom, came back upstairs, acted like I was sitting down to type and nabbed him. Popped him in the carrier before he knew what hit him.
6:04 pm

This morning he wouldn
6:05 pm
wildcat17

you know you'll only get away with that once
6:05 pm

shirlock that was wonderful! However, I will not take the advice to endure the love pain of scratching the demon spawn's belly no matter how much he tries to lure me into it
6:11 pm
Shirlockc

i've been suckered a few times
6:13 pm
Eva

It only took once with Merp.
6:14 pm
Shirlockc

mine doesn't do the belly thing all that often
6:15 pm
featherbee

hiya.
6:15 pm
Eva

Merp will put on his most angelic expression-and he has such a wonderful belly. Paws crossed on his chest-the whole 9 yards-until you touch him and then it's somewhat akin, from what I hear, to accidentally putting your arm into a bear trap
6:16 pm
Shirlockc

lol, eva
6:16 pm
featherbee

my cat's a belly-slut. she will allow anyone to do anything to her belly with nary a scratch. she will, however, lick your hand to death.
6:17 pm
Eva

god that sounds wonderful feather! a sane cat
6:17 pm
Eva

Merp's predecessor was like that.
6:17 pm
featherbee

well, she is on prozac, so "sane" is debatable. however, she was like that before the meds.
6:17 pm
Eva

lol. why the prozac?
6:18 pm
featherbee

behavior issues. pees on everything in sight. abandonment issues and territory issues mostly.
6:18 pm
featherbee

the prozac helps calm them enough to stop the peeing, i guess.
6:19 pm
Eva

aaah....I guess maybe not being able to play belly-belly isn't the worst thing that could happen.
6:19 pm
featherbee

lol, nope. the pee thing gets reeeeeally old after a while.
6:19 pm
Eva

Merp, over the past two years, has decided that litter boxes are only for peeing in. Door mats and small rugs are for pooping on. We are very grateful that it isn't the other way round
6:20 pm
featherbee

oh lovely! lol.
6:20 pm
featherbee

we have two boxes. the cats have decided that one is a pee box and the other is a poop box. it's weird.
6:20 pm
Shirlockc

mine will only do it in one corner of the box
6:21 pm
Eva

Since he eats only Vermont Raw-ground turkey, his poop is completely odorless and dry so easy to pick up.
6:21 pm
featherbee

that's good
6:22 pm
Eva

first it was only welcome mats-which made sense to me because they were scratchy and basically the shape and dimensions of a litter box, but now it is anyone's guess re logic. I sometimes worry that he is entering senile dementia
6:23 pm
featherbee

i love making up nonsense words to try. "marf" seems reasonable....
6:23 pm
Eva

only devoted cat people would spend all of this time discussing their companions bathroom behaviors.

marf seems like a good word to me

there's logic involved with cats?
6:26 pm
wildcat17

I miss my kitty
6:26 pm
Eva

absolutely right wild! What was I thinking. Merp is sitting here going >mmmmph?"
6:26 pm
Shirlockc

cat logic = whatever is most comfortable for the cat and most irritating to its people
6:26 pm
Eva

I know. Does a grandchild help?
6:27 pm
wildcat17

somewhat but he doesn't live here. I only see him on weekends
6:27 pm
Eva

cat logic-"Can I get away with it?"
6:27 pm
Eva

and he probably isn't furry is he?
6:28 pm
wildcat17

no
6:28 pm
wildcat17

he is soft and warm and a whole lot of fun to hold. and he doesn't scratch or bite when I have him
6:28 pm
Eva

I forget-why don't you have a cat now? I seem to remember a rather large menagerie, so why not a cat?
6:29 pm
Eva

and he has a frontal cortex-----
6:29 pm
wildcat17

I was trying to not get any more pets and let the numbers dwindle down. I am down to 2 dogs, both of which do not belong to me per se so when I can give them back to the children who do own them I will only have a turtle
6:30 pm
featherbee

lol @ frontal cortex
6:31 pm
Eva

I read recently that cats have no neocortex at all, while dogs do. Found that very insulting, but it was a good source. Does anyone know if that is true?
6:31 pm
wildcat17

one of those dogs is a cat-chasing and cat-eating terrier. not a good idea to bring another cat into the household
6:32 pm
featherbee

what is a neocortex?
6:32 pm
gapeach1066@yaho

Eva, just loved the way you got him into the carrier!!!LOL
6:32 pm
Eva

nope-doesn't sound like a good idea. Terries are exhausting.
6:33 pm
Eva

peach-I have to change strategies every time. Usually whatever I do ends up with me slithering under immovable furniture on my belly, lots of flying fur, blood and yowling.
6:33 pm
featherbee

not the cat's blood, of course
6:33 pm
Eva

no
6:33 pm
wildcat17

never the cat's blood

gapeach1066@yaho

The other is a terrier mix....so laid back. The other morning at about 3:30 and the hound needed to go potty.....came back with a dingle berry...tried grabbing her as she bolted back into the house....she jumped onto the couch and I had picked up paper towels and then the fun began, remember that I'm in a wheel chair and pretty limited with energy but I caught her on the couch and she wanted so badly to bite me but I got strength from somewhere and got her cleand up....heart beating very fast....mine.
6:38 pm

The story is, the father came home, all the lights were on, the baby was gone and the cell phones were stolen. The baby was last seen in shorts and a top, although she was supposedly put to bed before 10 PM.

i just wanted to know how far the news got, i have a friend in TX who had not heard about the kidnapping

It's all over the national news. Maybe your friend doesn't follow stories on CNN or the other internet news sites.
10:20 pm
JenMO16

JenMO16

i just wonder how long it is going to stay in the news

MollyL

We have a missing 11 year old in my area with similar bad circumstances. The mother was found dead and no one has seen the boy in two weeks.
10:21 pm
JenMO16

Hopefully, the truth will all come out eventually. It's always sad when it doesn't, as in the Jonbenet Ramsey case.
10:24 pm
JenMO16
