2:19 am

Ive been having trouble with this site for a few days--but I think its due to our weather
2:20 am
rubyfoo

what is happeneing with your weather?
2:20 am
puglet

well I hope thats all it is Ruby
2:21 am
puglet

weve been having thunderstorms allmost everyday sometimes more then one
2:21 am
rubyfoo

let's hope you don't get tornados but, hopefully, you're too far east
2:22 am
puglet

It has been very hot and muggy along with them but yesterday and today we have gotten a break from the 90's. SO glad too.
2:22 am
rubyfoo

it's unseasonably cold here and it rained all of yesterday, but todayis cold and sunny and the flower are wonderful
2:23 am
rubyfoo

just no fruit this year I think
2:23 am
puglet

they are calling for storms most of this up coming week too
2:24 am
rubyfoo

how are your vegetables coming? My tomato plants are pathetic little scraggly things
2:24 am
puglet

I took a little walk last night and picked a few berries to put in a dish of ice cream----It just hit the spot
2:25 am
puglet

Everything is looking great. Now we are afraid that all this rainy weather might start rotting some of it
2:26 am
rubyfoo

our strawberries are tiny and hard except for the bigger ones which are "previously eaten" and the raspberries are waterlogged
2:28 am
puglet

I found this wild plant that just came up out of the blue----never seen it before--but it looks just like a wild strawberry plant with tiny berries on it
2:28 am
rubyfoo

we have those, too, they are invasive and get yellow flowerws before the berries, but the berries have no taste at all
2:28 am
puglet

and the strangest thing I went to a friends a few miles from me and she had some growing in her yard too
2:29 am
rubyfoo

I think our climates are similar but maybe a little colder here
2:29 am
puglet

is it a wild flower
2:30 am
puglet

I like cooler weather! Cant stand this hot stuff
2:30 am
rubyfoo

I think it's just a weed, although I was really happy when I first saw it as wild strawberries are wonderful! No such luck
2:31 am
rubyfoo

however, since this is my first garden, I'm no expert!
2:32 am
puglet

yeah I know--those wild berries has such a sweeter and richer taste--there use to be gobs of them but with all the farmer spraying now a days they are almost non exsitint any more
2:34 am
puglet

Iam just waiting for the first tomato to ripen to have a dish of cottage cheese and lots of pepper along with it--lol
2:34 am
rubyfoo

last year I had so many tomatoes that I gave them away. This year, I don't think I'll have any
2:34 am
flosey

where I grew up, until I was 12, we had a huge field, on hill opposite our home, full of wild strawberries - we could pick all morning and mom would make a shortcake
2:35 am
flosey

started out in a valley in Ontario, ended up in valley in BC
2:36 am
rubyfoo

was it a little bit marshy?
2:36 am
puglet

At home we lived along the railroad tracks and mom would take us kids and we would all pick strawberries and blackberries
2:36 am
flosey

no, a creek ran through and it would swell in spring but we were on a higher plateau
2:37 am
rubyfoo

I spent one year in Princeton and that's where I picked wild strawberries, but never very many
2:37 am
flosey

here on small island, off BC coast, have a creek running through our property but would never cause problems
2:38 am

Rose - what happened about the sick leave situation?
3:04 am
Dianne

33 C is a bit too hot when it is also extremely humid.
3:04 am

*giggle* as don says to the canary every morning as he uncovers his cage ( the canary's, not don's) it's a good thing you're an inside bird, psycho.
3:05 am
puglet

its been hot and muggy here too.But we got a little break from it yesterday and today
3:06 am
puglet

Yet we've had storms almost everyday
3:06 am
grannyrose

dianne, what my supervisor meant, was , that we were to take sick leave PENDING workcover payment. which means we still have an income while not able to work, and the workcover re-imburses the company and we get our sick leave hours back.
3:07 am
puglet

Is the brace still helping
3:07 am
grannyrose

ugh, on the humidity for you both...don't think i would like that at all.
3:07 am
Dianne

And the workcover will absolutely remburse the moeny? Then it's a win/win situation Good.
3:08 am
puglet

I HATE IT!! Iam not a hot weather person
3:08 am
grannyrose

yes, pugs. although last night i was a tad defiant, and decided not to wear it overnight. i paid for it today. won't be doing that again in a hurry, i can tell you.
3:10 am

We might have a typhoon heading in our direction which wll bring some rain and hopefully cool things off a bit.
3:11 am

oh, please be careful of your dear self, dianne.

3:14 am
Dianne

*I don't thin........ (or type too well eighter)
3:14 am
grannyrose

trouble here too, but not because of the weather. because himself is home all day , he is on his computer from 0745 til 2200 everyday. all the downloading he does, impacts on our allowance. *sigh* we are on a VERY slow speed at the moment.
3:16 am
Dianne

I understand that - with this extreme hot weather I can't imagine what our next electric bill will be like.

watching our recording of motoGP which was run last night, from spain. one of the riders, lorenzo, is riding with a plate and screws in his fractured collar bone. he must be high on pain killers.
4:12 am

ouch rose...
4:12 am

ooohhhh, sprite. my dear girl, are you feeling better?
4:12 am

What happen to you Sprite(if you dont mind me asking)
4:13 am
sprite

am pretty good today, rose. And you? How are the work issues progressing?
4:13 am
zoozzoom

Not too bad thanks..only worry so far is debating with myself to take or not take an allergy tablet it not...hayfever just tickling my nose..lol
4:14 am
sprite

take the tablet, zooz. Better now than when it is really bad, it takes so much energy otherwise.
4:14 am
zoozzoom

Good point...will do.
4:14 am
sprite

pug: nothing major, don't worry. Just a bit of the flu and a clumsy fall.
4:15 am
grannyrose

work okay, thanx sprite. it seems the new unit manager got the wrong end of the stick. if i am unable to work, i take sick leave, pending workcover. workcover then re-imburses the company, and i get back my sick leave hours. it means my income stays the same, no matter what.
4:15 am
zoozzoom

I knew about the flu...not another fall, Sprite....you really need to look after yourself.
4:16 am
puglet

Sprite been wanting to run into you to let you in on the thing with Gradyn. His mom came and got him on the first monday of this month and ended up taking him back to his dad's cause all he did was cry
4:16 am
sprite

rose, that is wonderful news. Am so glad you don't have to worry. Let the new unit manager worry, grin... she is going about her new job the wrong way.
4:16 am

I know, zooz, grin. I try. Silly body isn't always cooperating.
4:17 am

are you and Rose related Sprite--lol

oh puglet *hugs to you and Gradyn*
I am sorry he had to go through that. But happy that his mum brought him back.
4:17 am
grannyrose

talking about tickled nose..try this one...i asked himself to fill the humidifier of my CPAP with distilled water. he didn't check the bottle and filled it with cleaning vinegar. i was too tired last night to say anything. of course, it's all my fault for putting the vinegar and water together on the same shelf.
4:18 am
sprite

lol... yes, rose and I are related... in spirit and soul. Not bloodwise though.
4:18 am
puglet

so are we---I just hope she wasent cruel to him because of it
4:18 am

OMG! ,Rose!

4:20 am

the real giggle?? the smell of vinegar made HIM sneeze all night.
4:20 am

pug... she might have been. But even if she were, at least Gradyn has 'won' by making her take him back. On some level he took control and that is very important in cases like this.

will be thinking of you both, ruby. I think you are right to be worried.
4:31 am
grannyrose

aww, ruby. it's awful, isn't it? we have to listen to mother mac...sometimes it's just asthma, and others it's a genuine chest infection. the trick is to call it right.
4:32 am

well, I'd say in case of doubt, let the doctor come. Better safe than sorry and all that6.

4:42 am
moonwoof

have fun at the boot sales! And nice to meet you in a brief and virtual way, Mr Zooz
4:42 am

You said that... but thats still QUICK
4:55 am
moonwoof

It may take me a bit to assimilate the speed required for that I guess lol
4:56 am
sprite

and I eat very slowly. If rose and I lived in the same house, I'd probably be still at the table when she'd come back for the next meal :)
4:57 am
puglet

did you make devil eggs Rose? lol--or rather easter eggs--you had plenty of hot vingar
4:58 am
grannyrose

moon, 30 minute meal break, working on the top floor of hospital, cafeteria on first floor, not allowed to use lift/elevator, only the stairs. doesn't leave a lot of time to eat slowly, especially when you have to wait in a queue in order to get said food in the first place.
4:58 am
moonwoof

agreed. I like how food tastes too much to go that quick, I think
4:58 am
grannyrose

5:06 am
sprite

lol rose!
5:07 am
grannyrose

and i hadn't even had 1 drink....
5:08 am
moonwoof

In order to gaff, I believe you need to blunder... and that would imply you lacked grace momentarily, which I refuse to believe is possible.
5:10 am
sprite

if I wasn't using the Babble Expert I would do the same thing
5:11 am
moonwoof

B.E seperates those? I should look into that this time around then... Ive stuck my foot in it several nights in a row, now
5:12 am

lol, moon, with this splint on...i am so totally graceless, last night was really weird. just couldn't co-ordinate between chog and grid.
5:13 am

Lickety has made a browser especially for babble (on Windows). It has a box in which you type, and when you type one word, it goes to the word list, and as soon as you type more than one separated by a space, it goes to the chat box.
5:14 am

I shant allow you to ruin my mental picture of you, yet. You can say that all you like and I will disavow it!

5:22 am

Exactly! I owed you from the other night =D

you are so right, rose, and wise to boot. We have a saying in dutch that translates roughly like: 'There has never been a cook who can cook to please everyone's palate'

reminds me of that joke... about the creation of Adam and Eve, while God was still distributing all the different traits he was bestowing on them. When the box was almost empty, He said: "I still have 2 things left... who would like to be able to pee standing up?:"
And Adam elbowed Eve aside and yelled: "Me! Me!"
"Okay," God said. "Then the multiple orgasm is for you, Eve."

my artsy friends call my art primitive! they are being so kind! lol
8:03 am
MollyL

"Primitive"...that's right up there with "interesting"
: D
8:04 am
moonwoof

But better, cause most people don't say "interesting" when they look at caves. And caves are way cooler than the stuff I hear people say interesting about ^^
8:05 am
MollyL

Annie, I met Jessica and Hume once. Charming people.
8:05 am
lbdawger

hiya, Molly. yup that's what i think too. they are too nice to tell me to stay in the kitchen!
8:05 am
Anniebrook

Molly, what an experience. Where did you meet them?
8:06 am
MollyL

At a champagne reception for them after one of their stage performances in Baltimore, years ago.
8:06 am
lbdawger

those two were the best! loved them both in everything they did.
8:07 am
Anniebrook

Molly, I saw Jessica Tandy in A Street Car Named Desire years and years ago. She was awesome.
8:09 am
MollyL

They were the best LBD. Loved what they did, down to Earth and not about being publicity hounds. The only celebrity couple that comes close to them these days is Amy Madigan and Ed Harris.
8:09 am
MollyL

Nice Annie, I'm sure it was a great show.
8:10 am
Anniebrook

Ed Harris in The Hours. What a preformance!
8:11 am
MollyL

What a cast that movie has. Not only the three stars with the leading roles but Harris, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, Claire Danes.
8:13 am

Im losing it. I cannot think of the other star in the movie. Extremely fanous.

we often fail with a good clue because we tend to forget here in the usa and canada that many countrys up till recently we not super saturated with 400 tv stations.in the uk,i am am told,for many decades you had bbc #1 through #5 and three of the had football one had dr who and the other had coronation street lol

8:34 am

Yay for Moonwolf!!
8:35 am

ahh the good doctor
8:35 am
moonwoof

But I lived there too, and thats just not quite right... they had Dr Who and red Dwarf and Eastenders and Ab Fab and Black Adder... theyre fibbing to you =P
8:35 am
Christa

my vote is with DR. WHO!
8:35 am
Christa

What if they made Dr. Who a woman this time?
8:35 am
hurshy

don't forget top gear!
8:36 am
moonwoof

I think if they did that it would defeat a little of the good example the Dr does, really.
8:36 am
hego

Loved Black Adder!
8:36 am
crosshair

hehe what i really love is the american version vs the uk version of antiques roadshow. they are so reserved in the uk programme.."madam,that vase is worth 350 MILLION pounds!" "oh?..really?..how lovely" and that is it!
8:36 am

Can you name another male lead character who solves dramatic issues without any real violance?
8:37 am

shawn spencer
8:37 am

Gotta love the Brits.
8:37 am

I think he's an exceptional *male* role model and we dont have enuf like him.
8:37 am

i do indeed,hego,since i was born one
8:38 am
Christa

yea Hercule Poirot! (one of my favs)
8:38 am
hego

Well,see Crossy, that proves it!
8:38 am
moonwoof

Theyre out there, but neither of those are nearly so well known as the Dr. And lets face it... shawn lies quite a bit lol
8:38 am
hego

And of course Hercule.
8:39 am

but he's mostly lying just to be funny :)

8:40 am

i wouldnt have a problem with a female doctor, at all... I just find him to be an excellent male role model for my nephews. And i would hate to see them lose that
8:41 am
Christa

bye for now
8:41 am
moonwoof

I just also know we have lots of strong female role models who are like that... and all of us intelligent people have still only come up with 3 males total.

i have 6 full book shelves still but as the paper version gets read to tatters and falls apart,i replace them with ebooks.paperbacks are just too darn expensive now
8:46 am
Uneaixoise

hey, crossy :-)
8:47 am
Uneaixoise

loved the PBS All Creatures series -- just wonderful
8:47 am
moonwoof

There's just something about *holding* the book and the smell of the paper... I dont think i can give up physical books, yet
8:47 am
moonwoof

morning une
8:48 am
moonwoof

I just try to be careful with the books, more like my comics, now, than I used to be.
8:49 am
crosshair

it can be hard moonwolf.most of the softcovers made in the 80,s were shoddy things with poor binding.i have many softcovers from dell publishing in the 50,s and 60,s that are in far better shape
8:49 am
joso

herriot is one of few writers that makes me laugh out loud as I'm reading him
8:49 am
crosshair

those softcovers with the green and gold page edging
8:50 am
crosshair

i think the herrit books are universally loved
8:50 am
moonwoof

It can be, sure. I even still have some I dumpster dived as a teen, I wager. But I also dont think that will keep me from attempting to prolong my seperation =)
8:51 am
crosshair

most were 99 cents at the time.now a top name softcover runs 15 dollars here in the great white north and the format is horrible
8:51 am
crosshair

the softcovers went a bit longer and narrower and i hate it
8:51 am
moonwoof

a friend just gave me the first harry potter soft cover, and this one looks ok, to me.
8:52 am
moonwoof

Its *slightly* taller, but I cant say this is quite narrow
8:52 am
moonwoof

Seems about the same size as the middle sized hardcover, to me.
8:52 am
crosshair

i think it is just within the last 3 years this size format has come into place here
8:53 am
moonwoof

I also admit I havent bought a *new* book in ages. Always shop the used stores, when I travel
8:53 am
crosshair

so,i look at library sales and private sales for my paper books and that is it
8:54 am
crosshair

sadly good used books shoppes are rarer than hens teeth around here
8:54 am
moonwoof

aww. That is sad!
8:54 am
crosshair

it is.
8:54 am
moonwoof

I live and breathe by them.
8:55 am
crosshair

i used to be able to spend half a day roaming in one and they kick me out at closing with a dozen or 2 new reading treasures
8:55 am
moonwoof

I suppose I also have the advantage in that most *other* people are doing a bit of what you are and selling their physical books to used stores down here
8:56 am
hego

Oh, these t's!
8:56 am
Uneaixoise

hey, moon -- i agree re holding and smelling books . . . will never forget what my childhood library smelled like -- books books books in an old victorian house :-)
8:56 am
moonwoof

But yea. The people at the stores I most frequent definately dont hate seeing me walk in lol
8:56 am
crosshair

and they would not go on the book shelf(even if there was room) but rather all the new finds would be stacked up on my reading table by my wing back chair with the spines facing me so i could savor the anticipation
8:57 am
moonwoof

Agreed. Its just *so* comforting. I cant do it, yet.
8:57 am
crosshair

gasp!! my physical books are never sold!! they just pass on of natural causes
8:58 am
moonwoof

Well that would possibly make you even more unique than you were a bit ago lol
8:58 am
hego

If i had kept all the books I ever bought I would need another house!
8:58 am
moonwoof

just like people here moved thier movies from vhs to dvd, so theyre moving their books.
8:58 am
crosshair

but i loves the ebook readers.i will always love my real books but there are now almost 500 books on my reader and without this new technology,i would of already have had to either buy a bigger home or turn the entire livingroom into a personal library
8:59 am
Anniebrook

I also have fond memories of the library of my childhood. I remember sneaking into the adult section and hiding and reading the books there.
8:59 am
hego

I have read 192 books since i have my e reader alone.
8:59 am
moonwoof

Oh. Yea... I Have sold a couple of physical books. But Icepeople was Not a good book, imo lol
8:59 am

Annie I also loved the library as a child.
9:00 am
crosshair

and 40 or so since have died a natural death
9:00 am
moonwoof

Ive lent some to others, as well. I consider those investments in good conversation or a paying forward for new books to come back to me.
9:00 am
Anniebrook

I still cannot get myself to get ebooks. I must hold the book in the hands. It's the physical touch of the paper.
9:01 am
crosshair

lol.just read what i said.you know you have issues when you do not lose books bu rather they pass on:))
9:01 am
hego

It takes a little getting used to.
9:01 am
moonwoof

I *can* read ebooks... I just really dont like them nearly so much and I find it more difficult to immerse myself
9:02 am

I love my Kindle above everything I own now.
9:02 am

we use them out of need.my wife has an eye disease and was ten years not being able to read.the invention of ebook readers saved her
9:02 am

When I lend a book to a friend and she/he tells me how m uch they loved the book..it makes me quite happy and I start looking for other books to lend
9:02 am
Uneaixoise

when we visited my grandmother in Lousiana in the summer, I was always invited to spend a day at my great-aunt's Children's Bookstore -- walking into that shop was like the moment when Dorothy steps out of the b&w house into a world of color! :-)

When Disney began production on the first Herbie film, it organized a casting call for about a dozen popular automobiles. Included in the mix were Volvos, Toyotas, and, of course, the lovable VW Bug. When the staff inspected the cars, they’d kick the tires, grab the steering wheel, and generally roughhouse each one a bit. But when they finally came to the Beetle, they just began to pet it. The smug car landed the part immediately.
9:29 am
RoundBarn

I will send, Crossy, but you are worth the postage. Just tell Amazon what an amazingly good book it is--we need the affirmation. I have spendid reviews, but haven't made the big time on these, yet--an earlier RB book was choice of the week at Milwaukee journal---

Practically lived the Ransome books - stil reread one or another of them at 71. But Ransome was rather a surly type, I gather - there's a really good biography of him out, but do not let any child fans read it!

I love lots of basil on stuff, but a little cilantro goes a long way.
11:19 am
72 Temple Owl

a little basil oes a long way. it intensifies when food isfrozen, as does black pepper. learned that in food class

7:08 pm

speaking of the teen daughter... how did the dress shopping go?
7:09 pm
Jacula

Lil - if you go on FB you will see both kitchen and garden pics. Our kitchen is 'country kitchen' as always. We're pretty much keeping it the same but freshening it all up. We've just had a double oven cooker and have had to move stuff to accommodate it and also retile behind it, as the original tiling was for a single oven cooker. Life is SO much easier with the bigger cooker.
7:10 pm
Jacula

lil - I know what you mean about hubby; I only see mine at weekends (mostly) but that's what you take on with a truck or coach driver. x
7:11 pm

7:19 pm
Jacula

Lil - he didn't seem so keen on driving the Indian and Himalayan sheer-edged roads when the IRT people did those. (He doesn't like heights.) lol
7:20 pm
lilliann

mine wanted to do those too, saying that he has driven around most of the world and dodgy roads but want's to do all the ones on the tv
7:21 pm
lilliann

if you don't like heights, they're not good jac :) lol
7:22 pm

lisa, is that the blonde one, actually, she's died her hair brown now. is that the one??
7:26 pm
TraderKate

you're not alone triff ;)
7:26 pm
Jacula

lil - I notice that Stobart's are holding a competition at the show with the first prize being 'doing a delivery with a driver of your choice'. Now why would I want to do that when I can do it with my very own trucker?
7:26 pm
Jacula

Lil - yes, Lisa was the blonde one.
7:28 pm

i don't have it yet triff, sorry
7:29 pm
lilliann

she is a crap driver.she hasn't got a clue, she just flutters her eyelids when she breaks down, thinking that all the men will help her, which they did to start and throughout all the driving she did she was crap and i want to say 'yay, great woman lorry driver but she's not'!!
7:30 pm
Jellen

Hi, all...
7:30 pm
lilliann

na6 sounds like the head bridesmaid
7:30 pm

Hi jellen.
7:31 pm
Trifioso

thanks! got it
7:31 pm
lilliann

lol jac, exactly.now, i would choose someone else as mine doesn't drive them any more, so i would want a young good looking one :)
7:31 pm
Jacula

lil - I must admit I was disappointed that time when she threw up her hands, panicked and gave up. I also don't like the way she treats her new co-driver, who seems like an okay chap.
7:31 pm
Trifioso

nbt.
7:33 pm
TraderKate

wtg triff !
7:33 pm
Jacula

Heh lil, my trucker is 44 (12 years younger than me) and he still looks young and good looking to me. *grins but wouldn't kick a looker out of the cab* lol
7:33 pm
lilliann

she thinks because she is driving a lorry that she's great.it's good that she can drive one, not many woman or men could, but she's not good with all the other stuff
7:34 pm
Jacula

lil - what do you think of the other lady, Mia? The New Yorker.
7:34 pm
lilliann

mine is 51 and good looking to me still but if i can sit next to ayonger model and a grab a thigh for an hour or so, i'll be happy :)
7:35 pm

Ooh, Lil! You little devil, you! (Hussy!)x

7:36 pm
lilliann

is she the one with red/darker hair. i only watch it when he's home and it was weeks ago when i did, but i preferred her.she wasn't brilliant but i thought she was better. hubby said she wasn't all that
7:37 pm
Jacula

'Grab a thigh' - that'd be a good theme for a national 'women of a certain age' day. :-D
7:37 pm
Trifioso

I have ALWAYS suspected you were a little pistol, lil!
7:37 pm
Jellen

I have a new beau. :)
7:37 pm
TraderKate

there was a bit of naughtiness earlier... i believe ruru was vacuuming wearing only a crossy-designed bacon g-string....
7:37 pm
lilliann

hey, i can't walk, so i need a younger model to throw me ove his shoulder and carry me from a to b without huffing and puffing and then i can spend time with my hubby breathing normally :)
7:37 pm
Jellen

lol, Kate!
7:38 pm
Jacula

I didn't think Mia was good, but she had a better attitude. I think Lisa has got a little to big for her TV Star boots now.
7:38 pm
Jacula

Lol, lil!
7:38 pm
BzznBea

Really, Jellen?
7:38 pm

Tell us about him....Spill it, girl!
7:39 pm

7:39 pm
Jellen

Yup! He's 30, a former Marine.
7:39 pm
Jellen

Sings and plays the guitar beautifully...
7:39 pm

Bzz - if only what happens in Babble did stay in Babble. However, you try googling your name and you will find your posts on the chog in here.
7:39 pm
Trifioso

wow! how did you meet?
7:40 pm
BzznBea

Di you meet him at school?
7:40 pm

No, met him online.
7:40 pm
BzznBea

I married the man I met online...=)
7:40 pm
Trifioso

good for you girl! That's how I met mine too, but he won't let me tell anyone that!
7:40 pm
BzznBea

Jac, really?
7:41 pm
Jacula

Jellen - that seems to be the way many people meet now, on line.
7:41 pm
Jacula

Bzz - yes.
7:41 pm
BzznBea

We've been married for 13 years and still going strong.
7:41 pm

I met my OH on line, too. Not on a dating site but on a forum.

Yay, Bea!
7:42 pm

7:42 pm
Trifioso

I am encouraged to hear all of this.
7:43 pm
TraderKate

lol. so there maybe hope for me after all? would never go on a dating site - at least not in a small town like this...
7:43 pm
Jacula

Of course, you do have to be careful on line, Trif., but not everyone online is a monster.
7:43 pm
lilliann

i'm so glad that a few of my babble buddies have found young virile men :)
7:44 pm

TK, are there larger towns near you?

7:45 pm
lilliann

kate, there is someone out there for you.when you least expect it, he'll pop up like a piece of toast from a toaster :D
7:45 pm
Jacula

Dating sites are pretty dire as far as I can tell. I wasn't online when I was newly single and so got taken to a singles club by a friend - an experience I never wanted to repeat. I looked at a dating service on TV and they all looked liked nutters or would-be serial killers.
7:45 pm
BzznBea

Hubs and I lived half way across the US when we met online. He lived in NC and I lived in KS.
7:46 pm
TraderKate

yes bea, but at the mercy of poor public transport for now...and the larger towns are still fairly small - st. catharines is the closest large town - about 100,000... niagara falls has only about 70.000 last i looked.
7:46 pm
Trifioso

I thought that too, jacula, and I did have some odd dates, to be sure, but I stuck with it for a bit longer, and hit the love lottery more than I ever could have imagined.
7:46 pm
Jacula

Kate - what lil said is quite right. That's what happened to me. I wasn't looking and suddenly there he was.
7:47 pm
Jellen

I live in a town of 14,000.
7:47 pm
Jacula

Trif - so glad to hear it.
7:47 pm
TraderKate

ah lil... i really am not looking now. i would literally have to stumble over him. the placews i go are not likely to have a potential boyfriend fjor me...
7:47 pm
Trifioso

anyway, jellen, I am delighted for you, and I wish you and your beau the very best.
7:47 pm

7:47 pm
Jellen

Hello, Neil!
7:48 pm
Jacula

Neil - haven't seen you for a while. However, that might be because I haven't chatted here for quite a while.
7:48 pm
lilliann

well, i hope all goes well for you jellen. all that matters is that you are happy:D
7:48 pm

dating sites are alot better now. my friend went on one and said she was never going to get close to a man again as she's been married twice and she went onto a dating site but didn't say alot and her boyfriend now is lovely and treats her the way that both of her ex husbands should have done
7:52 pm
Trifioso

nice, lil!
7:52 pm
lilliann

nite bea, tc and sweet dreams :)
7:53 pm
Jacula

lil - aw, that's nice.x
7:53 pm
lilliann

and he's really great with her son but he has grown up children so he knows what it's like to have bairns
7:54 pm
Jacula

I'm going to wander off now if no more clues are needed. See you again some time. And, lil, don't forget to check my FB pics to get up-to-date.xxx
7:54 pm
Trifioso

actually, that is true of my Valentine as well. He LOVES secondo and tertiare, as he never had a daughter, just boys
7:55 pm
TraderKate

i have never married (no kids either), i guess my standards are too high... and now very used to living alone wiht no one to answer to... i think what i'm trying to say is that i don't think i'd want anyone who'd want me ... what a snob i am.. but not a glod digger - could care less about how he makes his living
7:55 pm
lilliann

i still need 35 jac, but it's been great catching up with you. when i'm next on fb i'll have a look at your photos.tc hin
7:56 pm
TraderKate

bye jacula, so nice to chat with you after so long. take care!
7:57 pm
lilliann

my friend's boyfriend has one of each but i think because they are older and he is older than her he is different now to how he was maybe with his own.my hubby has 3 others from 2 other wifes and i thin
7:59 pm

sleep well jacula!

8:01 pm

Jellen

Oh no. We've only been together a few weeks.
8:01 pm
Jellen

Yes, Kate
8:01 pm
Trifioso

okay jellen. you will when it is time.
8:02 pm
lilliann

sorry, i don't think he treats them any differently to our's but he has a different outlook on life. when we got together we got all our skeletons in teh closet out, so there would be no surprises and we still love eachother no matter what, plus we both said, what we wanted and didn't want out of a relationship and 13 years later, we're still together.i think you have to be truthful from the start of a new relationship.if it's meant to work out, it will :)
8:02 pm
Trifioso

is that him in your profile?
8:02 pm

GREAT advice, lilliann!

8:04 pm
lilliann

kate, i think you'd be better off with someone who works away alot.you can still have your space but spend some companionable time and other things with someone for a couple of weeks at a time.
8:04 pm
Trifioso

mine is dread terrified of FB, so I am not allowed to post pics of him on it
8:05 pm
lilliann

i must admit, i'm more used to my own time and time with the our daughter and we have our own thing going on so when he is home he spoils it now but i love him being home but if it's for a month or more in teh winter it drives me potty and him, because we're not use to it
8:07 pm
TraderKate

i love company, but really do value my time alone with myself. not sure i'd be happy with a part time arrangement though.
i met a guy a few years ago... thought he was the one...

8:09 pm

oh dear - back out and go in again?
8:10 pm
lilliann

i'm like you kate, i do like my own space but i do want companionship too.sorry, it didn't work out for you, but as i say, there is someone out there for you and when you least expect it, he'll be there :)
8:11 pm
TraderKate

well, whether it happens or not, i will be fine. not to pass judgement on others, but fortunately, i don't seem to NEED a man in my life to feel complete :)
8:12 pm
TraderKate

enough! pour some wine and change the topic.... the lurkerz are bored ;)
8:17 pm

i've just been to the loo, is that a good enough topic change? :)

8:28 pm

i have ice cream in the back of my freezer, but it is so tightly packed, that i'm afraid i wouldn't get it all back in before it thawed....
8:28 pm
lilliann

i would like that without the banana.we have a juice/smothie maker and we make one that is called 17 a day.
8:29 pm
TraderKate

ha! name that famous heart throb from the 70's - hint he performed with his brothers...
8:29 pm
MollyL

Kate, you are one of the few women I have heard say that about men. Good for you.
8:30 pm
uusue2

sounds good. Trouble is, everybody here buys bananas and then doesn't eat them, so when they start going soft I peel them and throw them in the freezer. So we have a lot of frozen bananas.
8:31 pm
TraderKate

thanks mols, but i really can't take much credit - it's my genes and a bit of the nurture side of the nature/nuture debate... i have always provided for myself. don't htink i could be a "kept woman"
8:32 pm
TraderKate

sue - let them get really disgustingly black then freeze them in bags - skins and all... makes the greatest banana bread/ muffins
8:33 pm
TraderKate

crossy - add a vowel to that colour you just found...
8:33 pm
Jellen

Frozen bananas in the blender make the best ice cream there is ..
8:34 pm
TraderKate

hi torgone :)
going to sneak a peek at jellen's new beau :)
8:34 pm
uusue2

I could do that, kate, although I'm trying to avoid too much added fat and sugar, and Frank has to eat gluten free, so breads and muffins are a bit problematic. We do have some gluten free baking mix, though, so i might try it. He needs to gain weight anyway :-) (but I most certainly do not!!)
8:35 pm
lilliann

in our's sue which i got from a juice/smoothie book, it's actually called japanese 17 a day and ha 1 apple,1pear,2cm cucumber,half unwaxed lime,1cm ginger,small handful of spinach,half stalk of celery,half a carrot,handful of kale,half a beetroot,1cm slice of pineapple,1cm chunck of broccoli stem,1cm courgette chunk,1cm parsnip,1cm fennel,1 small slice of red and yellow pepper

Sue, gluten free is all the rage now. Do a Google search and you will find lots of gluten free banana bread recipes.
8:37 pm
uusue2

wow, that sounds amazingly healthy, lilli! I haven't started adding veggies to my smoothies yet but will try that eventually.
8:38 pm
TraderKate

the grocery bill would cost a fortune for that! better like them enough to have 2 a day before it all goes bad...but yes, very healthy!
8:39 pm
lilliann

he's a good looking guy jellen
8:39 pm
MollyL

I was just thinking the same thing Kate. Plus, you need to have a juicer to get the proper blend for vegetables.
8:40 pm
lilliann

alot of that i have in my fridge anyway kate, but i use whatever i need to get rid of, so it might be more of something, as in veg so i just add pineaplle from a tin and a few more apples to make it swetter
8:40 pm
uusue2

I agree with lilli, jellen! Good for you!
8:41 pm
TraderKate

if you freeze all the veggies first, it should help make them mushy enough to work well....and less ice needed. any way, it does sound like an interesting combination of flavours
8:41 pm
TraderKate

j is definitely "drool-worthy" ;)
8:42 pm
lilliann

it actually isn't expensive as you are having a chunk of a vegetable a day and not the whole thing

but,those old tube radios with their big speaker and tubes warming up..they used to give a different sound,not better,but something intangible.more warmth,more soul..comforting

sorry, but i need to go to bed now. lovely seeing you at this time of the morning kate and great seeing peach and stid and everyone else that was here earlier. tc all:D
10:31 pm
stidmama

dinner was nice. Went to an "all you can eat" place and wasn't hungry enough to eat more than two plates of sushi. Good sushi. Usually I eat three plates and then get a plate of fruit for dessert, but too hot to be hungry this day.
10:31 pm
stidmama

sweet dreams lilliann. Have a lovely week!
10:31 pm
TraderKate

good night liliann, see you tomorrow :)
10:32 pm
TraderKate

i know what you mean stiddie, heat shuts my appetite down too,,,, i just ate a litttle while ago, cool salad and garlic bread... now just looking for some choclit ;)
10:34 pm
stidmama

oh, that sounds like a divine meal, kate! Do you have trailing blackberries where you live? They didn't have them in Virginia, but they are "locally abundant" here. They bloom in May, and are already coming ripe here. Smaller than the bigger Himalaya (which are invasive) berries, and more tart, they have an exquisite flavor that is perfect on hot days. I picked some today when we were at the house (and some thimbleberries) and they didn't last long.
10:39 pm
TraderKate

we have blackberries here, but i don't think they are "trailing"... the blackberries and raspberries aren't ready here yet. presently the mullberries are ripe for the picking. we have thimleberries too, but it's too soon for them as well... i had a go at some mullberries yesterday (right off the tree- living dangerously lol).
i find simple meals that are at least partly cool rather than hot are better on hot days- though we have cooled off a lot in the last day - it's only a bit too hot rather than swealtering now...
10:52 pm
stidmama

mmmm mulberries! I have a mulberry... shrub? it is a sad little thing, really doesn't like where I put it, but it's still alive. I hope, this fall, to figure out a better location for it. The only thing about mulberries is the pithy center.
10:53 pm
stidmama

I think I am done reviewing the contract. It is pretty straightforward, only 4 pages of 8-point font, and then addenda at a legible font. Tom scanned the document so I could read it in biggie-size.
10:57 pm
stidmama

ha. down to 20. listing now
10:58 pm
TraderKate

the contract doesn't sound too awfully horrendous... do you have a third party to give it a look as well? another set of eyes never hurts, especiallly when it will affect your future for ages to come. why, oh why don't they incorporate the addenda? they have these modern gadgets called computers which negates the need to re-type documents...
i believe you are right mulerries are shrubs, but they can grow to tree height. dont mind the "unremoveable" stem of them, they are tasteless and very tender. they make a great cobbler :)
10:58 pm
TraderKate

go, stiddie, go!
10:59 pm
stidmama

A third party would be nice... I wonder if my friend who is an attorney would look at it for us. He is retired... but he didn't do this kind of law. Wish we were rich enough to have an attorney we could just call for things like this. *sigh*
