Damn
1:37 am
jbp

isn't sprite dutch?
1:37 am

ruru, I don't think sprite would be interested -- it's aimed at Dane breeders.
1:38 am
puglet

and no hard feelings here at all
1:38 am

or is that...sprite is not a dame??? i get mixed up...lol
1:38 am

would everyone please note that there is no mention of SIL in the clearing out of the MIL's rooms?
1:41 am

But nonetheless jilli that is fabulous need that the book is out
1:41 am

Iam okay too

Good. You are so close to Kentucky you probably know how those Kentuckians breed.

did you find what SIL was looking for Rose
1:43 am
bfdeele

Okay. Thank you.
1:43 am
jillibus

do you mean human Danes, peach?
1:44 am
grannyrose

oh well, it will be nice if don and i get to use the rooms before the hot weather hits us. we are planning on turning them i4 a bedroom/sitting room and a dressing room.
1:44 am
rururocks

I thought human Danes were born mainly on the plains?
1:45 am
grannyrose

yeah, pugs...not gonna tell her unless she asks...probably mean of us, but we have done a lot of hard work already.
1:45 am
jillibus

those are Spains, ru
1:46 am
puglet

why does she think shes intitled to those things and not don anyway
1:46 am
rururocks

:D
1:46 am
rururocks

Because she is greedy pugs
1:46 am
puglet

Jilli, where did the danes originate from anyway
1:47 am
grannyrose

pugs, reality says she is entitled to them...but she is not the eldest daughter..her sister is...hmmm interesting thought...hand it all over to jeanette...as the eldest...now that will be interesting to watch.
1:47 am
puglet

I think it should be divided between them all
1:48 am
gapeach

And does it rain on the plain? In Spain, that is.
1:50 am
grannyrose

omg...just realised. jeanette is the eldest, them fang...but neither of them are direct descendents of MIL. don's brother is actually the one who should have the jewellery, then don.
1:52 am
puglet

then don and his brother should be the ones to hand out what they think the sisters should have if any
1:52 am
grannyrose

don's mother was married to her husband's brother. her husband was married to MIL's sister. then they married , and produced don. jeanette and fang are MIL's husband's daughters.
1:52 am
rururocks

It does peach..but they have nothing to gain from rains on the plains...it is just insane
1:53 am
puglet

well its not insane to the animals and growth thats there
1:54 am
puglet

then that makes their off springs double cousins dont it
1:54 am
gapeach

Or perhaps, inane, to be insane on said plain.
1:56 am
jillibus

pugs, that's a bit controversial right now. There have been similar dogs pictured in ancient Egypt and through subsequent centuries as well as the Molossian dogs from the middle east or wherever. Then in the late 19th century people began to show and register them in Denmark,
Germany, and the UK. At present Germany claims the origin but so do the Danes, and meanwhile those very early dogs are possibly a combination of English mastiffs, Irish wolfhounds, and greyhounds among who knows what else over the centuries. But the Germans have kept meticulous records and I've used a lot of them in my book.
1:57 am
rururocks

That would be a pain to be inane om the plain were it to rain but not be spain...again
1:58 am
puglet

so what breeds are they saying has made todays dane? The same ones you named
1:58 am
grannyrose

and don has just put his two bits worth in, saying, well you took care of mum, you should have the first pick. *packing my bags, am flying north*
1:59 am

Be glad to see you, Rose - or isn't QLD far enough?

And I hope all you lkrain in Spain and Dane blather realise that you would never have heard that phrase if it hadn't been for my uncle, who supplied that speech exercise to the old movie of "Pygmalion" whe he was the technical advisor in that field -- trained by my grandfather.

Can I ask all nations aboard a question about Princess Diana? Do you still get lots of news stories regarding the circumstances of her death or is it just here in Britain? They just will not let it go over here!
2:10 am
puglet

we get it still now and then
2:10 am
Lizlin

Haven't heard much about her recently.
2:10 am
grannyrose

worzel, it crops up every now and again. mostly we focus on her children
2:11 am
worzel

ok. No, to be fair, it's usually about once a year they drag it back up again. It was a terrible incident and very sad, but after 16 years one wonders whether they should just let go now. Whether there was foul play or not we will never know anyway, so just let it rest for the sake of her boys
2:12 am
jillibus

I think it's JFK's murder which obsesses the USA.
2:12 am
Lizlin

They should've let it go a long time ago!
2:12 am
jillibus

Hear hear, Liz. Her sons have had enough.
2:12 am
Lizlin

So have I!
2:12 am
puglet

we get about the same thing with JFK here in the states
2:12 am
worzel

to be fair jili i think the world still obsesses over JFK which, in my opinion, was a conspiracy
2:13 am
Lizlin

Not a royalist, I'm afraid, though accept that they do bring some revenue to the UK in tourism!
2:13 am
grannyrose

with you worzel. but it doesn't hurt to be reminded of how she died. it was one of the most tragic moments in my life.
2:13 am
Lizlin

BUT, did see a couple of really good documentaries last week about John Lennon.
2:14 am
Lizlin

I'll keep very quiet!
2:14 am
worzel

ahh, see Liz, that's where I disagree. I too am not a royalist and I don't believe they bring in any revenue. People would still come here with or without them
2:14 am
Lizlin

I did say some - could've said a little bit!
2:14 am
Lizlin

And I agree. People would still come to the UK.
2:15 am
Lizlin

Funny how I still talk as if I'm there!
2:15 am

Mum the thing is everybody knows how she died and I think if any of my relatives had died in a nasty way like that I wouldn't want it in the press every 5 minutes. Agreed it's part of history and should be taught as such, but I think conspiracy theorists are the ones that whip up the fervour

But of course it was sad - whether a murder or an accident.

There was a great book written in the 90s called "The Queen And I" by Sue Townsend and it was about a government that dissolved the monarchy and made them all go and live on a council estate with hilarious consequences. I can just imagine The Queen popping down to the newsagent for 20 fags and a can of Strong Brew lmao!!!

More snow to come tonight and tomorrow. We have already gotten over 40 inches in the last week.
8:09 am
Haz1558

No, indeed. The only hockey I played was at school where I attempted to keep warm and avoid injury. I've watched games since - they bear no resemblance to what we produced.

Just came back for a minute to let all know I got an email from lilliann and she is just fine...I was so worried about her. She misses everyone and will be back in Babble soon. Spread the word, pls. I'll come back on later and tell others as well.
8:54 am
Judi

I often wondered if the impressionists were just a bunch of artists with bad eyesight. The product was blurry but beautiful.
8:54 am
hego

ty Mimi
8:54 am
Anniebrook

Thanks for the good news, Mimi
8:55 am
Bugsaw

what happened to lilliann?
8:55 am
MimiCat

Especially let Molly know about llilliann since I know she was concerned and was so supportive of her during her difficulty with her daughter.
8:55 am
hego

cataracts probably
8:55 am
Anniebrook

Judi, Up close its a mish-mash. Stand away a bit and the beauty is there
8:55 am
hego

Hi bugs
8:56 am
MimiCat

Bugs, she just hasn't been on Babble for a long time and I was concerned. Apparently she had a lot of computer trouble but is doing well.
8:56 am
hego

8:56 am
Anniebrook

Mimi, Is her daughter okay?
8:56 am

8:57 am
MimiCat

Annie, she was having difficulty with her daughter being abusive to her...that's one of the main reasons I was concerned.
8:57 am

Mom has not been here either. Her father is not well.
8:57 am

Poor Lill
8:57 am
MimiCat

We do miss our Babble friends, don't we? I've grown attached to so many wonderful people here...that includes all of you, BTW!
8:58 am
Judi

Oh, I know, Annie. They are supposed to be dream-like. I quite like them myself. Just wondering if that was the original intent of the first impressionist.
8:58 am
Judi

Poor Lilliann. What a horrible situation to have to deal with.
8:58 am
Anniebrook

Judi, I dont know but I am going to google impressionist painting later.
8:58 am
MimiCat

FYI and for what it's worth, I'm related to the painter Millet...did nice work.
8:59 am

Monet actually did have cataracts at the end when he painted the bridges, etc.
8:59 am
MimiCat

Yes, Judi, especially from a wheelchair....and she is such a dear lady.
8:59 am
Bugsaw

wasn't it Lilliann's daughter who was hit by a car a while ago? I wonder if there was a head injury

some injuries at the front of the head can cause behaviour changes. it is devastating
9:01 am
Judi

Sounds overwhelming for both Lilliann and her daughter. I hope they are both getting professional help.

The Frick is my favorite and, of course, the Met

10:44 am
72 Temple Owl

what must be done?
10:45 am
jmcnrick

that is the plus side of working 11 hour days. . . money to pay to fix things. . . the minus is that the only reason i have ti** to babble is that i took some ti** off to get my tax software up and running.
10:46 am
jmcnrick

the termites chewed a sizable chunk out of the floor and the underfloor a few years back but i didn't have enough money to fix all of it so i only fixed the bathroom where they ate all the floor, underfloor and a good chunk of the floor beams. . .
10:47 am
72 Temple Owl

oh my!
10:47 am
jmcnrick

now it will all be fixed and pretty. . .

you have to find a place that does cheap funerals. . . some do and some don't . . . they will also sell expensive urns for the cremains. . . and if you bury the cremains that costs as much as burying a body. . . there are cheap funeral parlors which believe that you shouldn't be bankrupt by your death. . .
11:16 am

11:16 am

5:34 pm
lilliann

i went on today lil, which is why i saw the messages from mimi and other people from here but also some good friends wondering where i'd gone to, b ut i was sick of the viruses and i have 2 accounts and it going really slow and then i was having trouble on here all the time too
5:35 pm
penquis

ah...i understand...
5:37 pm
lilliann

i do take a few months off at times as i have to start something i finish.so i will probably now have to play until i get high points again..it is the gemini in me :) i also needed time away just to spend time with my daughter and other things.hopefully i will be back properly in the new year and catch up with all the lovely people i've missed
5:38 pm
penquis

well it is nice sometimes to spend time doing other things....i have taken up drawing and am trying to do some of that every week...
5:42 pm
lilliann

that sounds great and very therapeutic.what type of drawing do you do? i love to stamp images and colour in with all my crafty pens, i find it very therapeutic.i can only draw cartoon characters but i need to copy them, i can't do it from my head.the bairn's bedroom was always covered in pictures that she wanted that i painted on the walls when she was younger.bob the builder and his friends and the little mermaid and her friends etc, i miss doing that
5:43 pm
lilliann

you'll have to show some of your artwork on her pen. i would love to see it
5:43 pm
penquis

cool....i am enjoying just pencil drawing....right now i am doing portraits, mainly of children because they have nice close up photos....i also did Mike Tyson from a photo online at the NY Times....interesting face...
5:44 pm
penquis

i have been doing mainly my great nephews...
5:44 pm
lilliann

omg.i wish i could draw like you.they sound amazing.you definitely have to show some of your picures on your profile
5:45 pm
penquis

5:46 pm
penquis

i have started doing some of my Russian friend's grandchildren, since she sent me their photos....i will send them to her for her birthday...
5:47 pm
lilliann

at the end of the day, pen you are still drawing them but from a picture, it's still art and if you enjoy it which is the main thing and it looks like the person so what?
5:48 pm
lilliann

that will be a lovely present and i'm sure she'll love them and it is something personal
5:48 pm
penquis

agreed...i do enjoy it and it's very relaxing....i go to a cafe, put my feet up on the ledge in front of the fireplace and draw...
5:49 pm
lilliann

i wish i could draw from photos? is it all pencil or do you paint aswell?
5:50 pm
penquis

only pencils...more forgiving....i erase a lot... ;o)
5:50 pm
penquis

i took a five week class and it was just enough to get me going...
5:51 pm
lilliann

i always find anything crafty, as in painting, card making jewellery making relaxing. we all need hobbies to de-stress
5:51 pm
penquis

very true....time flies when i am drawing...
5:52 pm
lilliann

i must admit when i've drawn picures on the bairn's wall i've had to erase a bit but it always seems to look ok and then i paint after.not anymore though as she is 14 and wants posters :(

5:55 pm
lilliann

hi gwen :)
5:56 pm
penquis

Hey all, Featherbee (Weed) has a project on DonorsChoose that she has submitted for her classroom. It is almost funded, just $134 to go... if you can, make a donation and lets give her class a great Christmas present. If you enter the code "Disney" at the time of donation, they will match the funds and you double your impact. Can read about project here: http://tinyurl.com/kdfvlfy

9:56 pm

thanks... seems like 3 of 4 YA books now are fantasy or vampire type books...
9:58 pm
jesdraggon

and 1 of those 3 is worth reading (on a good day). I could do without another Twilight ever. That may be the least enjoyable book I've ever powered through that wasn't assigned for a class.

so Matthew is now 21 (yesterday) and I am realizing I did NOT do a great job setting up a "final" assessment this quarter, but I have some time to give additional assessments so kids can raise their grades. *sigh*

I'll be here for five more minutes if clues are still needed.

10:47 pm

Actually it's not that bad -- most of them have done a GREAT job. I guess I am just dissatisfied that I am not "super teacher" and 100% don't get 100% scores.
10:47 pm
stidmama

thanks jes. AND he did a decent job his first quarter at the university, so all together he's having a fine week.
10:49 pm
stidmama

how's life on the farm, jes? WArming up any for you? we're back to "normal" for us, mid-30s at night and mid-40s daytime
10:49 pm
jesdraggon

it's mid-30s during the day - much too warm and no snow
10:50 pm
jesdraggon

farm/home is good, though I got the lovely experience this evening of firing a client who was being an a$$
10:50 pm
stidmama

hm. yes, aren't you normally relatively snowy between Nov and March? Seems Walla2 was intermittently snowy, but they are a little farther south.
10:51 pm
Minveryork

We are getting into the 50s Saturday here in New York.
10:51 pm

last couple of years we haven't had much snow until about Christmas. which is way later than I remember as a kid...
10:51 pm
stidmama

yuck. Sorry you had to do that.
10:51 pm
stidmama

after all that snow, min? won't you flood from the melt?

gotta love a guy half again my size yelling and waving his arms in my personal space and expecting me to find him reasonable.
10:52 pm

I am done with snow! It took me 2.5 hours to drive home in a snowstorm today.I almost went off road a few times
10:53 pm
stidmama

well, you have the right to be treated respectfully, and so do your staff.
10:53 pm
stidmama

Good for you, jes.
10:53 pm
stidmama

ick. I hate driving in snowstorms. CAN drive in them, just don't care for it. Usually all the other idiots on the roads drive close to the speed limit and do other stupid things.
10:53 pm
Minveryork

Gotta love people who tailgate you & speed past you in a snowstorm. Some people are such idiot driver in Winter.
10:54 pm
stidmama

LOL Min! GMTA!
10:54 pm
jesdraggon

he apparently thought it was outrageous that we expected him to pay for medication dispensed.
10:54 pm
jesdraggon

but min, don't you know that 4 wheel drive has to mean 4 wheel stop too?
10:54 pm
stidmama

*rolls eyes* wow. I just can't get it... they think that it should be free???
10:55 pm

I must go now. Have to get up early again tomorrow for another Wintry commute. Goodnight to all babblers!

I didn't refill my migraine pills the last time because they are so expensive... but I will get some over the break and hope I don't have to use it much
10:55 pm
stidmama

sweet dreams Min, and be safe. (((Hugs)))
10:55 pm
jesdraggon

apparently. he actually said that the doctor he saw should have specifically told him to stop at the front desk to pay for the medication, and was pissed we'd sent him a bill when he walked out without paying
10:56 pm
jesdraggon

sleep sweet, minver!
10:56 pm
stidmama

our vet doesn't give meds in the rooms anymore. They tell you to pick it up at the desk AS you pay the bill. Seems to solve the problem...
10:57 pm
jesdraggon

when I pointed out that dr l didn't tell him because she and everyone else at every business I've ever worked or patronized acts on the knowledge that the person who receives a product is expected to pay for that product, he just glared at me and insisted that she should have told him.
10:59 pm
stidmama

No... I think it's common knowledge. Oh well. Some people just don't "get it" no matter what we do
11:00 pm
stidmama

yikes. forgot I have to get something ready for tomorrow. *sigh* gotta go. Have a great rest of your week, Jes (and all) I'll be back on the weekend!!!
11:00 pm
jesdraggon

So at the end of his yelling, I just said that it sounds like he should look for a different clinic, and when he finds one we'd be happy to forward his records there.
11:01 pm

And now, i'm off to shower. Have a good evening, stid :)
