he enjoys doing that but wouldn't bother to join himself
1:33 am
VolleymomDee

aww, so nice he helps a bit... bet that is fun
1:34 am
flosey

yes, I enjoy at least starting it with him
1:34 am
VolleymomDee

do you use a desktop when he goes to be, or do you use a desktop?
1:35 am
flosey

I always use desktop - he uses the laptop
1:35 am
VolleymomDee

I think playing on a laptop is tougher
1:36 am
flosey

yes, me too, I've typed since HS days, so feel better with proper keyboard
1:37 am
VolleymomDee

For me, laptop keys are not spaced properly, so I make sooo many errors - drives me crazy.

1:48 am
flosey

it does, the older one was out, from Toronto) last year and couldn't wait to meet his other cousin (from his Dad's side) lots of cousins on his Mom's side
1:48 am
VolleymomDee

since our daughter was an only child, she also became very close to cousins
1:49 am

wonder if dart is still traveling; haven't seen him for ages
1:53 am
flosey

no, but ru said hi to him (teasing I presume, he was in 'who's online'), he may have been in from time to time
1:53 am
VolleymomDee

I had to do that this weekend - was at daughter's and could only slip in a few minutes at a time LOL
1:54 am
flosey

Dee, do you have a clue for the ps8 and 9, it isn't going as I had anticipated
1:54 am
flosey

when I'm back in TO, visiting sons, I use their desktop computers
1:55 am
VolleymomDee

ps + companion word to either _ _ + abbreviation for state of Alabama + opp of beginning (minus the d)
1:55 am
flosey

one son keeps 4 functioning so that grandson's friends can come in and use them
1:55 am
VolleymomDee

the 9 is the plural
1:56 am
VolleymomDee

great idea and great way to have them hang out at home
1:56 am
flosey

thanks Dee, strange words, to me
1:56 am
VolleymomDee

totally new to me, too
1:57 am
flosey

yes, he has also done same with a music room, now they've graduated to guitars,
1:57 am
flosey

they live in a rather quiet neighbourhood, so the kids are free to come in and out
1:58 am
flosey

there's always an adult there
1:58 am
VolleymomDee

fabulous ideas
1:58 am
flosey

good for an only child
1:58 am
VolleymomDee

volleyball helped us keep house busy with sleep overs, travel, etc... kept our daughter so busy, she didn't have time to get into trouble
1:59 am
flosey

so true
1:59 am
VolleymomDee

she was a bit rebellious her freshman year of college, but it didn't last too long
1:59 am
flosey

these kids hang together and the parents keep watch - I set off the alarm one day and looked out the door and all neighbours were out to see what was going on
2:00 am
flosey

was very reassuring for me since I was alone at the time
2:00 am
VolleymomDee

LOL bet that scared you to death (nice to realize others are around though)
2:00 am
flosey

it did, was afraid police would arrive
2:00 am
VolleymomDee

did they?
2:00 am
flosey

only to find dumb gramma with egg on my face
2:01 am
flosey

no, we got it stopped
2:01 am
VolleymomDee

I am dumb about all alarms - always set them off - refuse to even use the one at church
2:01 am
flosey

they may have called, don't remember, was a few years ago
2:03 am
flosey

do you have occasion to be in the church alone?
2:04 am
VolleymomDee

when I was leading Bible studies on Monday nights, I liked to get there early to make coffee and get snacks put out. I always asked one of the ladies with alarm code to help, so I didn't have to mess with the alarm.
2:04 am
VolleymomDee

Then one of the other ladies would close everything up when we left for the evening.
2:05 am
flosey

that's good, should always be working in pairs for things like that
2:05 am
flosey

I worked one night a week in a clinic and we always tried to leave together
2:06 am
VolleymomDee

We live in a small, relatively safe town, but I am nervous in those situations. Hubby picked me up a few times, which I really appreciated.
2:06 am
VolleymomDee

That is just smart.
2:07 am
flosey

we saw each other to their cars
2:07 am
VolleymomDee

Our daughter's hours are hideous - comes and goes at wee hours of the morning and night - her new hubby often goes with her on late night calls... and we REALLY appreciate that.
2:08 am
flosey

very considerate, like that, what does she do?
2:08 am
VolleymomDee

He even did so when they dated... gives some peace of mind.
2:08 am
flosey

great guy
2:08 am
VolleymomDee

She is a sales rep for Medtronic spinal division, so she has to take call for trauma cases every so many weekends and evenings.
2:09 am
flosey

wow, sounds interesting
2:09 am
VolleymomDee

We feel really blessed and are growing to love him.
2:10 am
VolleymomDee

I don't know how many years she'll choose to do it - very taxing, long hours, stressful. So far she loves it, but once they have kids, I don't know how she'll feel.
2:10 am
flosey

we too, have great sils and dils
2:10 am
VolleymomDee

Don't you feel fortunate? Certainly not the case with some of our friends.
2:11 am
flosey

I sure do, one of the girls was married earlier, didn't work out so she really took her time after that - there've been many since the divorce
2:12 am
flosey

her hubby was a good young man, they were just in too much of a hurry, so glad there weren't any children.

Sarah - my tips for bad back pain - walk as much as you can. Don't sit, lie down. When you sleep - if on your back put a pillow under your knees - or if you side sleep, put a cushion or pillow between your knees.
2:35 am
lynxxx

hi Flosey
2:36 am
sarah6girls

walking hurts a lot lyn
2:37 am

and if you stand, keep your knees bent

I am sure the doctor will give you some anti-inflammatory medicine...which will work along with the hot and cold packs

5:57 am

72 Temple Owl

no, hurshy. the meat was very salty and i questioned the quality. they advertised it and it looked good so i tried it. but with all of the real delis in the area, which use boar's head or thmann's or dietz watson, the chains don't usually make it. i would try arby's though if there wre one handy
10:05 am

I've had Arby's TO...au jus and meat were good...roll wasn't as crusty as I would've liked..

TO.... they are making so many changes to potato varieties.... some just DO NOT mash well. I bought some lovely new white potatoes once, and they just went gummy when I tried to mash them.
12:00 pm

One thing about being in CA, the produce is less expensive and fresher
12:00 pm
72 Temple Owl

so ruby your mind reading capapcilites are frozen :)
12:00 pm

TO, I don't understand the question.....
12:00 pm

Most of the produce in CA now is from South America and Mexico
12:00 pm
72 Temple Owl

that is because it is as yet unasked.
12:01 pm

sometimes the potatoes here get gummy and nasty -- too waxy for starters, I think. You need good idahoes (or in Europ "bunchies" or something)
12:01 pm

Lots from the central valley
12:01 pm

how else can you learn stuff?

when I was very small, sometimes my whole class would walk to the store as a "field trip" and my father would give all the kids ice cream and candy
12:47 pm

Ah, my mother grew up in Far Rockaway, her father owned a grocery store.
12:47 pm

and we would stand there for the longest time picking out 2 cent candy. remember the ice cream sandwiches that was put between 2 large cookies.

and egg creams and malteds?
12:47 pm

by the time I was 7, my father would let me mind the store, but I wasn't big enough to make sodas or sell ice cream
12:48 pm

my father would make me extra-malt malteds after school every day to fatten me up and I would get to scrape all the ice cream out of the cartons

I can buy them in the local market and eat them spread with cream cheese or salted butter
12:55 pm
Michnick

OK, I do believe that you secretly weigh 300 lbs (or 145 K)
12:55 pm
rubyfoo

my only real cravings are for eggs....weird!
12:55 pm
rubyfoo

and only 5 ft tall
12:56 pm
Michnick

That is weird. Maybe because such utterly wonderful food is available, you crave eggs?
12:56 pm
cybernan

I think this grid takes the cake for stupid words
12:57 pm
rubyfoo

this is a bad food region of France; the meat is awful
12:57 pm
Michnick

Well, there are so many of them, there have been stupider.
12:57 pm
rubyfoo

I'm an irregular eater
12:57 pm
rubyfoo

did you get the du7, nan?
12:57 pm
Michnick

Is the produce bad where you are too? The meat is pretty bad here too, but we make the best of it.
12:58 pm
rubyfoo

the produce is pretty good and less expensive than anything else; things like endive and asparagus are inexpensive and wonderful (in season only)
12:59 pm
rubyfoo

and I've just started cooking duck in a variety of ways
12:59 pm
rubyfoo

my DIL brings Italian sausage when she visits from SF
12:59 pm
Michnick

That's good.I love duck but it is one of the few foods I have never made myself. Do you have to render all the fat before cooking?
12:59 pm
cybernan

yes thank you
1:00 pm
rubyfoo

beef here is not worth eating
1:00 pm
crosshair

lol ruby@ 300 pounds.i have seen your picture.i think my right leg weighs more than you do:)
1:00 pm
Michnick

That's the smoke and mirrors, cross
1:00 pm
rubyfoo

I just learned how to cook it in the past year: I buy "magret de canard" which I think is duck breast and cook it, fat side down to get rid of some of the fat
1:01 pm
rubyfoo

then I cook it in sweetened soy sauce and homemade plum jam
1:01 pm
MollyL

Ruby are you still putting that picture on Facebook?
: D
1:01 pm
rubyfoo

I don't know how to change it
1:01 pm
rubyfoo

like this avatar (not that I would change old Max for anything....)
1:02 pm
Michnick

Omigosh, that sounds amazing. I wonder how expensive duck would be here. The general public here is not very adventerous about their eating and cooking.
1:02 pm
rubyfoo

I buy halal lamb because French lamb is nasty
1:02 pm
rubyfoo

for couscous or roasts
1:02 pm
periwinkle

hello, hello all
1:03 pm

Where does the halal come from? Lamb here is very expensive but good (actually I think it's good, I don't have much to compare it to)
1:03 pm
Michnick

Hello Peri
1:03 pm
rubyfoo

I sounds like the good cook I once was, but have become much more lazy with the years....
1:03 pm
rubyfoo

there are 4 Arab butchers, but I think the slaughtering makes it taste better than the Fr way
1:03 pm
periwinkle

Mich your real first name and mine are the same, even spelled the same way
1:03 pm
rubyfoo

hello peri
1:04 pm
Michnick

Unusual, people are always giving me that extra "L"
1:04 pm

1:04 pm
stidgmere

Hello all. Just starting. Sounds like a cooking program chog today. Lovely!!
1:04 pm
Michnick

Ruby, how does halal meat taste compared to Kosher?
1:04 pm
MollyL

Blame that on The Beatles.
1:05 pm
rubyfoo

I think it's the same because the slaughtering is the same, but without the blessing (I think)
1:05 pm
Michnick

Ruby, the men have one but leave off the last e.
1:05 pm

I have one 8 ps8 and the pl that I got from earlier clues. help with other eights pls.

1:06 pm
Michnick

I don't think so Ruby, (about the slaughtering) there are differences. I don't know enough about kosher slaughtering to know what the diffs are.
1:06 pm
rubyfoo

Here, they all seem to spell it your way
1:06 pm
Michnick

Did one Michele marry a Michel?
1:06 pm
MollyL

It bugs me to no end that the French pronounce Michelle and Michael the same way, Gabriel and Gabrielle the same way and Daniel and Danielle the same way.
1:06 pm
stidgmere

Periwinklle. Oh. Is it the first or second elle that needs elliminating?
1:06 pm

1:08 pm

I thought that in France Michel was pronounced Mikel with the accent on the second syllable
1:08 pm
EvaNadine

my friend's middle name is Michele. we always call her "Donna Michele, one L"
1:09 pm
MollyL

That is like me asking my friend how his sister, Robyn with the Y is. : D
1:09 pm
rubyfoo

I made a gross humor faux pas when I went to the party in London. All my niece's colleagues were there, all female psychologysts, and when I met them, I'd say, "Hello, I'm cured!" I don't think I can ever go back.
1:09 pm
stidgmere

That is because we are on the same wave length michnick. Hooray for us.
1:09 pm
Michnick

My mother originally named me Michel, but someone in the hospital told her only boys leave off the last e. Luckily she was able to recall the birth cert and add the e
1:10 pm
rubyfoo

they didn't think it was funny
1:10 pm

So, ruby, you don't need them and they don't want folks cured. Too bad for them.

My sister had a blind date for her junior prom. She went with my dad to pick him and he said, "Hi. I'm Rich." She answered with "Oh, how nice. I'm poor." He didn't think of another thing to say all evening.

7:22 pm

*Does a soft shoe through the chog*
7:23 pm

The da5/20 is the pl of the da4/9, but that probably doesn't help much.
7:23 pm

And there is another da5,20 that is like daybreak but with a random vowel added to it.
7:24 pm
uusue2

ok, finally got my password sorted out. Sigh.
7:24 pm

A victory in one of life's small battles, Sue.
7:26 pm
uusue2

Indeed. One of the problems is that, between my smart phone and my iPad, I can get locked out of my account every time I change my password because they are constantly trying to log in with the old one before I can get it changed everywhere.
