2:47 am

no, hun. only if i was under 18... :-(
2:47 am
puglet

awww thats too bad
2:49 am
puglet

I know you will be in all of our minds but thats not like having someone there holding your hand
2:54 am
puglet

I ran into my sister's husband(hes a mail carrier in a town near me and sister is Gradyn's grandmother.The one who hasent spoken to me for about 3 years now) I asked him if she was still mad at me and he said he told her to call me(which she hasent) and told me to give her a call. And I said if anything I would go to her home but he said to just call. I like being face to face. But as I think more about it I dont feel like doing that just yet. Maybe I should but its a two way street I feel like.
2:56 am
grannyrose

all true, pugs. but a phone call keeps both of you in your own territory, and thus comforting you both. if you must see her face to face, male it on neutral territory..like a cafe or park.
2:56 am
grannyrose

*make*
2:58 am
puglet

I figure God will put us meeting somewhere or someplace when its time. And in my heart I just dont feel its the time yet
2:59 am
grannyrose

and that is okay, pugs. how you feel is quite correct...
3:00 am
puglet

the worse of it is she wont have anything to do with the other family members and I feel a bit bad about that, yet its her choice not mine
3:01 am
grannyrose

pugs, dear. you must respect her wishes...you will know when it is time to step up the pace.
3:02 am
joso

sounds good pug, you can force these things a bit if you are near ready, but you can't fake it entirely
3:02 am
puglet

the six of us girls use to be so close but now its like we are almost strangers
3:03 am
joso

rose, be careful what you wish for, if you were under 18, don would be in jail (and probably not the type of guy you'd want to be with anyway)
3:05 am
grannyrose

lolol....well some of my hair is under 18....alas the rest of me is, well, used a tad.
3:06 am
joso

well experienced has it's advantages
3:07 am
puglet

Where is our Sprite? Wonder if her daughter had to be put in hospital
3:08 am
grannyrose

hmmmmm, pugs....i do so hope all is well with her.
3:08 am
joso

besides it doesn't matter if you think you are man bate or not, don does, don't talk him out of it
3:08 am
puglet

Me too
3:09 am
grannyrose

*chuckling* if you only knew....i am soooo don bait...lol
3:09 am
joso

is it a therapy day, she is not here at these times on therapy days
3:09 am
puglet

no that was yesterday
3:10 am
grannyrose

ah, yes, therapy day fridays.
3:10 am
grannyrose

thursday??? pugs??
3:10 am
puglet

am I screwed up on time again
3:11 am
puglet

its 4am saturday here
3:11 am
joso

for her it is something like 8 am saturday now, sleeping in?
3:11 am
grannyrose

it's friday for sprite...i think....now i don't know either...waaahhh
3:12 am
puglet

lol! I had to look myself to make sure it was saturday
3:12 am
joso

nope, evening for you is morning for her on the same day, morning for you is evening for her previous day
3:13 am
puglet

flip is at 1am for me here
3:13 am
puglet

thats a big help Joso-lol
3:13 am
grannyrose

okay, so it's saturday morning for sprite...hope she's having a lovely snooze.
3:14 am
joso

me too, add about 5 hours to our time, or 4 hours to babble time for sprite time
3:14 am
grannyrose

inother words she is 12 hours or so behind me
3:14 am
joso

but it all shifts by an hour with various daylight savings plans
3:15 am
puglet

I always think of Rose ending her day as Iam just starting mine
3:16 am
joso

I think more like 10 hours off your time, but eve to morn and vica versa is a good rule of thumb for you
3:17 am
puglet

Is crossy on the same time as you Joso
3:17 am
joso

yes, he is due north of me so not time zone shift
3:19 am
joso

I had it all figured out exactly once, but then daylight saving hit and screwed it all up, now I just think in generalities
3:20 am
puglet

its hard to keep them all straight
3:21 am
joso

rose and liz are a half day++ ahead of us, sprite a quarter day- ahead
3:22 am
joso

rose and liz can be offset by an hour because Australia has whack-a-doodle daylight saving schemes
3:27 am

I seem to have bored the chog to sleep
3:27 am

hey, who you calling whack-a-doodle??
3:27 am
puglet

no, Iam trying to find some words
3:28 am
joso

oz time keepers, who obviously go to work via the yellow brick road and answer to a wizard
3:29 am
grannyrose

*giggle*
3:29 am
puglet

I dont understand how babble does points on some words--like di5/12 if you add the tiles it only adds up to 6 and it makes it hard for me to find some words
3:30 am
grannyrose

pugs, 4 letter words, tile value only, 5 letter words double tile value, 6 letter words, 3 times the tile value..etc
3:30 am
joso

4 letter words are multiplied by 1, 5 letter words are multiplied by 2, 6 letter words are multiplied by 3, etc
3:32 am
joso

so di5-12 will have 6 basic points before multiplying, 4 1's and a 2
3:32 am
puglet

okay thanks guys
3:32 am
grannyrose

so, pugs if a 5 letter word is worth 12 points, that means one of the tiles has a value of 2, the reat only one point
3:33 am
grannyrose

*rest*
3:33 am
puglet

alright, I got it now
3:34 am
puglet

that will sure help out along the way
3:35 am

I forgot to thank you for the fitness dude clue earlier pug... thx
3:36 am
puglet

and are the 7-13 3x's too or more
3:37 am
puglet

yrw but I got the clue from someone earlier
3:38 am
joso

7's are 4x, 8's 5x, ..... 25 letter words are 22 times
3:38 am
puglet

now Joso it only goes to 13
3:39 am
puglet

and I got it all now--ths
3:40 am
joso

no, 13 is the biggest so far, but it is possible to get a 25 letter word sometime
3:41 am
puglet

and you have seen that?
3:42 am
puglet

I dont even know a 25 letter word unless its some medical term
3:42 am
joso

no, but there are words that big, and the grid has 25 letters
3:43 am
puglet

that would be like a April Fools day grid
3:44 am

4:44 am

there is a dj word ... not about hosting a radio show
4:45 am

oh yeah, that was it, dj something. Took me ages to find that one. A ct7 sounds interesting.
4:47 am
o-o

another that likely will never pass my lips in casual conversation
4:47 am

yes, that is the one. Very weird word for me.

good one. I like feeling my way and trying to find just the right words to give the other a sense of what I wanted to express
5:24 am
o-o

Yes. Employing the right words still is no guaranty that another will understand exactly what you intended to express. There are studies that confirm what both say they understand is not coincidental.
5:25 am
sprite

too true. It is a funny thought that usually, when we communicate, words are the least of what we use to express ourselves, and here in chat are almost all we can go by.
5:30 am

fireflies. Not as tough as yesterday's, but still interesting. I wish you a blessed day and a peaceful night, o-o. Thanks for the chat and your company *hug*

Oh, no, the swelling has not decreased?
8:30 am

and all the advil i can handle.yes it has decreased but now instead of the entire right side of my face,it is centralized in a golf ball size swell over the infected area
8:31 am
Scrabbler

Ugh. well, that antibiotic will help.
8:31 am
crosshair

they gave me ten days of this med with orders to eat yougurt and take probiotics mid day with one antibiotic in the morn and onne at night
8:32 am
Scrabbler

450 mg twice daily?
8:32 am
crosshair

300 mg twice daily
8:33 am
Scrabbler

If you are not better in a few days you may need a higher dose. I am not a dentist but in te5 with certain infections we use 300-450 mg 3-4 times daily.
8:34 am
crosshair

ty.scrabby i guess half way through the med cycle i should see a def improvement?
8:34 am
Scrabbler

Within 4-5 days, unless you need an abscess drained.
8:35 am
crosshair

well he drained the gums in the affected area,and his hoping the infection did not attack the tooth nerve from below
8:36 am

Are you able to sleep?

it rams home the import of proper flossing and how buying a water pik may be a very good idea
8:39 am
Scrabbler

Tooth #30 gave me trouble for years, so I had the filling replaced, then a root canal, then an apicoectomy (read about that), then extraction, then implant. That all happened over 10+ yrs and cost me probably $10K.

Hi Liz. How has Saturday been?

Wet but good thanks. Now 12.42 am - just got in from a laughter filled night with friends and unwinding for a bit before bed.
8:42 am
Lizlin

Hope you have a good Saturday - are you on call?
8:43 am
Scrabbler

It is hard to unwind after an evening of laughter.
8:43 am
Lizlin

Whether my brain will see any words now is a different matter!
8:43 am

I keep some older shoes just for snow ...
8:43 am
Scrabbler

Not on call. I have the weekend on-call in 2 wks. I will cross-country ski again today.
8:43 am

* ?
8:44 am
Lizlin

Sounds like fun, Scrabbs - too cold for me to contemplate! Sitting here in Tshirt and cut off trousers!
8:44 am
o-o

The problem I have is how to get the shoes on when they are full of snow.
8:44 am
Scrabbler

This is the earliest I have been able to ski, because we got over a foot of snow this week.
8:45 am
Scrabbler

The ski resort across the valley opened on Wednesday--an early start for them. Financially wonderful for them.
8:46 am
Lizlin

Cold winter forecast?
8:46 am
Scrabbler

Actually a warming trend which bodes poorly for snowsports.
8:46 am
Lizlin

Wet slushy snow then?
8:47 am
Scrabbler

Yes, but then overnight it will freeze, so then there is ice early in the day. Anyway, snowshoeing in the woods is an option if the ski trails are a mess.
8:48 am
Lizlin

Are the roads kept well cleared or do you have to resort to snow shoes and skis?
8:48 am
Lizlin

Not sure how remote an area you live in.
8:49 am
Scrabbler

The roads are well-plowed, unless the snow is coming down hard and the plows cannot keep up. Also, I pay a man $300 per winter to plow my driveway.
8:49 am
Lizlin

$300 well invested, I'd think!
8:49 am
Scrabbler

I live in a development on top of a hill, about 1700 feet high, with one road in, and 140 homes.
8:50 am
Lizlin

Is this the community where you work as well?
8:51 am
Lizlin

I'd imagine it's pretty important to keep that main road clear then.
8:51 am
Lizlin

Funny, I judge snow by London standards and the place just fell apart in heavy snow because it didn't happen often, so sorry if my questions sound naive.
8:51 am
Scrabbler

I work in a village 8 miles away. This is rural, many farms.
8:52 am
Lizlin

Must be pretty idyllic.
8:52 am
o-o

Are the 140 homes subject to covenants or other contractual obligations?
8:52 am
Scrabbler

We get 80-120 inches of snow every winter.

Poor Crossy. I wish I could help, but healing takes time.
8:56 am
crosshair

i will be back on bacon in no time:))
8:57 am
o-o

The $300.00 is in addition to the home owner assessment?
8:57 am
Lizlin

Still reckon you 've got the option of a bacon smoothie.
8:57 am
Scrabbler

My snowplowing cost is extra. SOme people shovel, others have a snowblower, most pay a guy to plow.
8:59 am
crosshair

a smart kid on the block would do well to buy a snowblower and go door to door
9:01 am
Lizlin

OK 1.00 and time for bed. Enjoy your days and hope by tonight you'll be up to bacon, Crossy!
9:01 am

9:02 am

Hah, I have had 2 crises from that problem, since I got a steel roof 12 yrs ago. My small greenhouse was crushed, so I had it turned into a screened-in porch.
9:03 am

i am surspised you do not keep a roof rake handy,scrabby
9:04 am

Then in front I place plywood boards in front of the floor-level windows because once the snow and ice crashed down and bounced through a window.

Hi Carlee!

My dad and I would get on the roof to make sure no vents were plugged ... took a push broom along to get snow accumulations moving on down. Not so fun but had to be done.
9:17 am

9:17 am

vents
9:18 am

9:19 am

I got a steel roof after several years of having ice dams and leaking into the house. Many people here now have metal roofs.
9:21 am
Scrabbler

My phone charger cable is not working. I have bought so many new chargers. Is it the connection tines that fail over time?
9:21 am
crosshair

yes.makes life easier.nothing worse than ice build up backing up under the first 3 course of shingles and all of a sudden you have water running down your livingroom wall
9:21 am
crosshair

often,scrabby you can try cleaning those tines with a q tip and a bit of nail polish remover
9:22 am

they get a build up on them sometimes

Does the manufacturer of the charger have a number to call for support, Scrabbler?
9:26 am
crosshair

or,get one of those new duracell chargin mats
9:26 am
Scrabbler

It is so aggravating that charger cables/tines are so inadequate.
9:26 am
Scrabbler

I can check, o-o.
9:27 am

You cannot be the only one having that problem.
9:27 am

scrabbs, How is she coming along since your Dad died?
10:15 am
Scrabbler

She rambles on and on. Overall she is progressing with grief but she cried on Thanksgiving Day, missing him. Last year we were in a daze of grief. This year his absence seems more real.
10:15 am
Anniebrook

She is lucky she has you and your sister nearby.

another of his favorite things is a large box of zip lock bags.. for preserving other stuff........... maybe he is a born archivist... or as one family mamber commented in a low voice.... maybe he is just a little strange like his g' nana

Hello, everyone! Talking food, I just got an 8-qt. slow cooker and have never used one before. Any good recipe ideas will be greatly appreciated. I'm going to put a whole chicken in there in a bit. A friend told me not to put liquid in with it since it makes enough by itself....thoughts?
12:34 pm

I have enjoyed meeting several babble players
12:38 pm
MimiCat

((ruru)) So good to see you!! Yep...we've got a beautiful dinner planned at a restaurant in a resort atop a mountain...sunset reservation. The restaurant has windows all the way around.
12:39 pm
rururocks

I happened to catch the conversation you had with Haz and co the other day.. and I must say that someone's comments to you were below the belt and uncalled for and rude
12:40 pm
rururocks

hence my icon
12:42 pm
MimiCat

Thank you, dear...several people emailed me saying they thought so, too. Nice to know I have support! I now simply avoid chat whenever o-o is here...not worth the hassle. There was someone in that particular criticizing conversation who believes she has a bone to pick with me and who has actually made the criticism I made herself...hate hypocrites.
12:43 pm
MimiCat

I won't name names because that's not who I am.
12:44 pm
rururocks

yep.. I have been meaning to catch you and toss in my support. I caught mr 00's comment and found it to be very hurtful and rude.
12:45 pm
rururocks

it's odd how some people get miles of latitude and others have a very short leash :D
12:46 pm
MimiCat

I just don't see the point saying things like that, especially bringing one's children into it...it was just cruel. I know he has "issues" but that does not give him the right to be that cruel especially when it isn't even relevant to anything I said to or about him.
12:46 pm
rururocks

I completely agree.
12:46 pm
rururocks

it doesn't give anyone the right to be cruel like that
12:47 pm
MimiCat

I used to dislike Molly a bit as well but she has kind of grown on me and now I miss her! Don't think BR could grown on me if you super glued him.
12:47 pm
rururocks

I know he can't help himself.. but he should stay away when he is in his moods
12:48 pm
MimiCat

That's why I've just avoided chat when I see he's here...better to leave him alone. I don't need the grief. I come here for the wonderful company and most people here are indeed terrific.
12:48 pm
rururocks

Molly's comments are often misunderstood. She actually is trying to joke.. but for some reason they come across as criticisms .. whereas when I joke.. everyone knows it is a joke, because i'm such a goof
12:49 pm
rururocks

Molly is actually a very funny person
12:50 pm
MimiCat

I usually assume someone is joking at least at first. I understand sarcastic wit because that's my style as well. Gotta say crossy was right there for me, bless him. Knew you would be, too. Thanks so much.
12:53 pm
rururocks

I could make more comments but it is probably best to leave it like it is.
12:53 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Sometimes people get a bit huffy here.
12:53 pm
MimiCat

I was just thinking the same thing myself, ruru!! Best to leave it along and move on.
12:53 pm
rururocks

there are times I wish you were in the chat while people are acting out kap.. with your experience and all
12:54 pm
Kaplan the Magne

My experience of what- acting out?
12:54 pm
rururocks

aren't you a therapist?
12:54 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Oh, yeah, that makes me an authority I guess ;)
12:55 pm
rururocks

we'll you'd be able to diagnose some of these people's issues :D
12:55 pm
MimiCat

Believe it or not, that's my background, too. But I'm one of those who believes people should take responsibility for their words and actions and not just use excuses.
12:55 pm
Kaplan the Magne

You've heard of wounded healers, or healed wounders or time wounds all heels or something...
12:56 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I diagnose everyone here as seriously disbabbled.
12:56 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I believe context is everything.
12:56 pm
MimiCat

Kap, I think of us as being "embabbled."
12:57 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Well-heeled wound up babblers.
12:57 pm
rururocks

Look Mimi.. this is just a game. It is here to help people challenge their brain. The Chat feature is a nice feature to have people help each other accomplish the goal of finishing and chatting. The bitchy portion of the program.. is really uncalled for. I'm here to have fun, laugh, and talk to nice people.
12:57 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Could you imagine how many friends I would have if I started diagnosing them?
12:57 pm
rururocks

Apprently we are a group that spent a year grieving a fake person, so who is to say what's real?
12:59 pm
MimiCat

Exactly, ruru. The grid is one thing and chat is another. It's a chance to connect with people from all over the world you would never meet otherwise. I'm looking forward to meeting Aloy tomorrow and many other babblers in the future...lots of trips being planned for the spring.
12:59 pm
Kaplan the Magne

The fake person was a lot of fun, and we got along, only he didn't exist.
12:59 pm
rururocks

Which is why I don't participate in social networks at all. I see it as a bad venue to bully people.
1:00 pm
Kaplan the Magne

this is a social network of sorts.
1:00 pm
MimiCat

I completely do not understand the fascination with Facebook! Lots of people with nothing to say...saying it!
1:00 pm
rururocks

yes..that's true Kaplan..
1:00 pm
rururocks

I bet Aloy is a nice person
1:01 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Depends on who you have as friends. I connected with some important people that I had lost track of, and we share good times during public events. Also, when Boston was on lockdown last spring, it's how I stayed up on things.
1:01 pm
rururocks

I would NEVER sign up for Facebook.. not ever

Photographing food- that I don't get.

You don't have to be friends with people who don't say anything. You can get updates from Robert Reich.

That depends on what the question was, Mimi ;-)
1:05 pm

Me,too...oh, the stories we could share, Soodle!
1:07 pm

Slow cooker, also known as crock pot. Put your meat/veggies in (usually with liquid), set timer/temp and be gone all day while it slowly cooks.
1:15 pm
rururocks

probably really handy if you are running with kids all the time
1:15 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Better than running with scissors.
1:15 pm

My equivalent is a bit prehistoric. I have a solid fuel cooker, which is great for stove-top soups & stews etc.

I cannot st5/12 Black Friday! Shoppers get so te 5/10 and don't show any ta4/5 in their quest for sales from ve4/8ors.One year I st5/16d my ankle. Was trampled on and was se 4/4 to the hospital so I have never done Black Friday ever since that happened. Now I st 4/6 home and do all my shopping online.This en4/5 my story.I hope you have se4/4 more words with this story.Now that I've le4/4 you a hand with my story I'm going to go watch the movie Ma5/16point.
