12:37 am
Lizlin

But is your dog OK?
12:37 am
Lizlin

Poor Dylan - bet he wasn't too happy either!
12:37 am
rururocks

no he's okay.. just some allergy issues with him.. on-going and difficult to manage
12:38 am
rururocks

there's a new drug coming out in January that may help him
12:38 am
jesdraggon

what's he allergic to? everything?
12:39 am
rururocks

we don't know yet.. everytime we wean him off Pred.. he blows up with skin issues
12:39 am
Lizlin

Poor Dylan :(
12:39 am
rururocks

I tried keeping him on atopica to get the skin testing done and he had a bad case of pyoderma (sp?)
12:40 am
rururocks

so they couldn't test him
12:40 am
rururocks

I've never had an allergic dog like this before
12:40 am
jesdraggon

ah. yeah, can't do the testing on pred. blood tests aren't as accurate for environmental things... it's tough.
12:40 am
Lizlin

How long's he been allergic for?
12:40 am
jbp

i had a cat that was allergic to something that fleas carry. took forever to diagnose, b/c it wasn't the fleas themselves
12:41 am
jesdraggon

you'll just have to move up here where all the allergens are different :)
12:41 am
rururocks

his whole life liz
12:41 am
Lizlin

How old is he?
12:41 am
rururocks

he's 4
12:41 am
Lizlin

Oh! I imagined him as older - just goes to show!
12:41 am
rururocks

I haven't decided where i'm going to retire yet.. ya never know
12:43 am
rururocks

I owned his uncle and aunt.. never a problem with skin on either of them.. and his father never had issues.. it's the mom's genes that are causing the problems I think
12:43 am
jesdraggon

there are a couple of dermatologists not too far away from here too.
12:43 am
jesdraggon

oh sure, blame the girl :P
12:44 am
rururocks

I took him to Davis to see a doctor there.. she's been great
12:44 am
Lizlin

Glad you said that, Jess. Went through my head too!
12:44 am
jesdraggon

Though in fairness, it may well be the bitch's fault...
12:45 am
rururocks

No.. it's just I knew Dylan's father very well..and his mother does have allergies.
12:45 am
Lizlin

Holy cow, this was an easy one... *sigh*
3:16 am

hi amelu, gratz
3:30 am
ChrissieDee

Morning sprite. How was you Christmas feast yesterday?
3:31 am
sprite

hi Chrissie, it is today :) Yesterday I cooked, which went well. Today is the 'big' dinner. Thanks for asking.
3:31 am
sprite

did you have a good day yesterday?
3:31 am
ChrissieDee

Oh, wish you bon appetite then
3:32 am
ChrissieDee

Yes, very pleasant thanks
3:33 am
sprite

thannk you :) Will sit down with my love in a bit and work out what we want to have as side dishes, and then the horrid shopping (sigh), and then the preparation of it all. A nice day of teamwork ahead of us.
3:33 am
ChrissieDee

Went shopping with my daughter - always good :)
3:33 am
sprite

ah good :) Am not much for shopping myself, but glad you had a good time with your daughter!
3:33 am
ChrissieDee

lol, different shopping I think
3:34 am
sprite

:)
3:34 am
ChrissieDee

Sorry to hear that, is it mobility problems?
3:35 am
sprite

mobility problems and ptsd. It hurts and I panic. Not my idea of fun, lol. I mostly order through the internet. Not the groceries though.
3:36 am
o-o

phantom: steganography
3:36 am
sprite

hi o-o, great to see you. Let me guess... write like a dinosaur?
3:36 am
ChrissieDee

Yep, I tried that one too o-o
3:37 am
sprite

wrong again... it is "the art and science of encoding hidden messages in such a way that no one, apart from the sender and intended recipient, suspects the existence of the message"
3:38 am
sprite

so that is why the grids are so erratic. Jamie is sending one of us messages and the rest of us have no idea.
3:38 am
ChrissieDee

:)
3:40 am
o-o

I am thinking JT believes words are an endangered species and is trying to save them ... which accounts for these puny grids
3:40 am
ChrissieDee

Saving this little grid for later. Off to the shower for me. Have a great day sprite and good luck with the shopping. TC o-o.
3:41 am
sprite

could very well be.
3:41 am
sprite

thanks Chrissie. Have a lovely day yourself :)
3:42 am
sprite

I should introduce JT to a friend of mine... she sometimes suffers from word diarrhea when she is nervous. Should cure him of his misconception.
3:44 am
o-o

JT does not talk to me now ... apparently he does not appreciate my complaints about the size of the grids
3:45 am
o-o

Of course, he is god
3:45 am
sprite

or he is sending you encrypted messages and even you don't know about it.
3:45 am
sprite

a high-learned god at that
3:46 am
Dianne

hi sprite and o-o
3:46 am
sprite

hi Dianne :)
3:46 am
o-o

Hello, Dianne
3:47 am
Dianne

I hate these puny grids. On a lazy, cold Sunday afternoon it would have been nice to have a good size one.
3:48 am

I couldn't agree more

3:51 am
sprite

I bid you goodbye, Dianne and o-o. *hugs* and I hope you will have a blessed day and a peaceful night.

Congrats on your fw Pugs. Still have 8 left here.
5:35 am
puglet

thanks Liz--was hoping to catch Sprite
5:35 am
Lizlin

I see I missed Rose - how is she today? Also missed Sprite.
5:35 am
Lizlin

This is a time when I usually come back to babble for a while before I go to bed.
5:36 am
Lizlin

Sprite's got her big family dinner today, I think. She'll be pretty busy.
5:36 am
puglet

she is fine--had a nice service and her party went well
5:36 am
puglet

I was hoping she'd be on but maybe she wont
5:36 am
Lizlin

Good. Hopefully I'll catch them both tomorrow but I'm glad you're here.
5:37 am
puglet

ah thanks---Its too quiet today in here
5:38 am
puglet

did I miss Sprite? I went to work on puzzles for awhile
5:38 am
Lizlin

Small grid, I guess. But usually people start to come back online after 6.00 am grid time.
5:39 am
puglet

how was your day Liz
5:40 am
Lizlin

Very, very hot! And then it stormed tonight. But we've had a good day. And how are you? Headache free, I hope.
5:40 am
puglet

I seen on the news that Aus. is having trouble with sharks there
5:40 am
Lizlin

Probably the hottest day since we moved to Queensland 5 years ago.
5:41 am
puglet

Iam now---so Iam okay---its raining here today
5:41 am
puglet

how warm is it
5:41 am
Lizlin

There are always sharks in the water. If you're sensible, you stay where there are shark nets. The sharks make the news but really there aren't that many attacks.
5:41 am
Lizlin

It hit 42 C today - usually it averages around 30 C.
5:42 am
puglet

what is that in fh
5:42 am
Lizlin

That's about 107 F - I just googled it to convert it.
5:42 am
puglet

yikes! thats a melt down
5:43 am
Lizlin

Usually it's closer to 86 in our summer.
5:43 am
puglet

you could cook outside with out any coals --lol
5:43 am
Lizlin

lol!
5:43 am
puglet

is that with humidity too
5:44 am
Lizlin

Should be back to normal tomorrow. Now it's humid, after the storm, but most of today it wasn't too bad at all.
5:45 am
puglet

does it dry quickly there after rains
5:45 am
Lizlin

Yes, usually it does. It was very dry. This was the first rain in over 2 weeks.
5:46 am
puglet

then you must of been glad to see a little rain then
5:46 am
Lizlin

Definitely. But the grass and plants were more than me!!!
5:47 am
puglet

yeah I bet!
5:47 am
Lizlin

I'd've liked it to rain for much longer!
5:47 am
Lizlin

Usually this is our rainy season - but not so much so far this summer.
5:48 am
puglet

guess I will go work puzzles----I think you are right about Sprite not coming today***************** I hope thats not a bad sign for the new year to come for all of us
5:48 am
Lizlin

No - I'm sure it's not a bad sign - she's having a family dinner.
5:48 am
Lizlin

Enjoy the puzzles. See you tomorrow. Hugs.
5:50 am
puglet

oops, I was talking about the rain LOL not sprite not coming as a sign-------------see you tomorrow Liz. hugs and enjoy your evening

Hi Bichon
9:51 am
zophas

I have to admit that I am starting to like this game. But it takes me ages to find obvious words.
9:52 am
bichon

Soon you will be so addicted.
9:52 am
Scrabbler

Welcome, Zophas. After you are here a while you will learn many odd words.
9:52 am
penquis

you get better at it the more you play it...
9:53 am
penquis

and you can always use Lickety if you get stuck...
9:53 am
bichon

Learning odd words will help you with your life
9:53 am
Scrabbler

Hahaha, Bichon.
9:54 am
zophas

I have already run into many odd words.
9:54 am
bichon

You an impress people at parties by using the monetary unit of Eas West Weirdistan
9:54 am
Scrabbler

Hahaha. Learning words here has helped me in Scrabble and doing crossword puzzles.
9:55 am
penquis

there are always weird words....but the more you play, the more identifiable they become... ;o)
9:55 am

9:56 am
Trifioso

Once a germ is in a home or classroom or work setting, everyone gets it. :-(
9:57 am
Trifioso

herd management is key, yes scrab
10:00 am
Trifioso

anyway, I hope you all had very nice holidays, and are enjoying the post holiday lull
10:00 am

I want more snow.
10:00 am

10:00 am
Trifioso

hahaha scrabbler! I am afraid I do not share that particular sentiment
10:01 am
penquis

you can have some of our snow, scrab....we had about two feet the week before Christmas....then we had an ice storm...
10:01 am
Trifioso

my snow blower is still in the shop, so the snow can stay away for a bit longer, thanks
10:02 am
Scrabbler

We got over 40 inches a few wks ago, then had a warm spell, then a bit more snow, now 2 warm days.
10:02 am
Scrabbler

Cold and snow will return starting tomorrow
10:02 am
zophas

I can't play this game with the Chatterbox on. It is so distracting. I keep looking for clues and hints in the messages. And then I miss all the obvious words.
10:02 am
Trifioso

I want the pond up the road from me to freeze. pond skating is the best there is
10:03 am

10:09 am

10:09 am
Trifioso

catdip! lolololol
10:10 am
Trifioso

there is a case to be made for "midset" as well - the band started out well, but midset had started to slow down

10:11 am
rururocks

it WAS my grid.
10:12 am
rururocks

everyone had to pay hommage.. I hope you did trif
10:12 am
Trifioso

I did indeed, good sir
10:12 am
rururocks

that's great.. I'll allow you to finish today's grid then :D
10:13 am
Trifioso

thank you your grace
10:13 am
rururocks

*blesses trif*
10:13 am
Scrabbler

Done. Rather easy grid. Just a few weird words.
10:14 am
Trifioso

i just greyed the i, which in my case is as close to a miracle as I will see today
10:14 am

hi all. glad it's a small grid (i'm probably the only one who feels that way on this drab, wet Sunday) cause i'm making an Indian feast for friends this evening and cooking up a storm
10:19 am
Trifioso

hi dorens! wow, ambitious you!
10:21 am
Dorens

Chicken Tikka, roasted chickpeas, shrimp with garlic and chilies, beef curry, cauliflower with ginger and chillies, mustard greens, basmati rice, chapatis, chickpeas cooked in tea, coriander chutney, raita, carrot halwa and spiced chai - I think that's everything, but who knows? i am going to be too tired to enjoy, but I'm enjoying the preparation
10:21 am
Trifioso

I am truly impressed
10:22 am
Dorens

i don't entertain a lot, but I used to really like to, so this is kind of fun for me. what i do on vacation! in between being slothful and lying around reading and babbling
10:23 am
rururocks

sounds nice doren
10:24 am
Trifioso

i have sort of entered into this weird sort of slug mode....
10:24 am
rururocks

not sure what chicken tikka is
10:24 am
Trifioso

its unfortunate, as I have TONS to do
10:24 am
Dorens

slug mode is right for a day like this trif
10:25 am
rururocks

yesterday I was Sluggo
10:25 am
rururocks

*looks at trail behind trifoso*
10:25 am
Trifioso

at the end of the day, I just dont like cleaning. its boring. and I really have to want to do it, and i just .....don't. but the kids are away, the house is quiet, school is out until thursday, and I need to get myself together and get it done. blah.
10:26 am
Dorens

saute the indian trinity (ginger, garlic, onion) in oil, then add various spices (cumin, etc), then add yogurt, marinate the chicken in it ... then put on skewers and grill (or broil in oven) soooo delciious
10:26 am
Dorens

oh, i'll be sluggo tomorrow for sure!
10:26 am
rururocks

are you going to grill it ?
10:27 am
Dorens

not in this weather.... broiling in oven and it will still be fabulous.... (boneless chicken breasts cubed)
10:27 am
Dorens

i'll send you the recipe if you want it ru, do you like indian food?
10:27 am
rururocks

ah
10:28 am
rururocks

I shouldln't eat spicy food..although I really love it
10:28 am
Dorens

this one isn't hot... no chilies, just nice spices... when you say spicy do you mean hot or spices like cardamom, coriander, cumin?
10:28 am
rururocks

chilis I shouldnt' eat
10:29 am
rururocks

It sets of rosacea in my system
10:29 am
Dorens

then you're fine for this. if you want it
10:29 am
rururocks

maybe I'll try in in grilling weather. I just got a BBQ as a gift
10:30 am
Dorens

cool. everything is better grilled.. I seem to have only made this inside, but i think back in the dark ages my ex used to do it on the grill if I marinated it
10:31 am
Dorens

ok. down to 8... can save them for later. back to the kitchen for me. enjoy the day
10:31 am

de 6/27 is a most evil little word. I have always held to the idea that if you have not said the word, heard the word spoken or seen the word in question used in print in one full year, it should be send to the planet of useless words never to be seen in a babble grid again:)

Nice poem in your profile, Sue.
1:51 pm
Nef

We've found that a low dose or a long term dose doesn't cause the mood changes as much as when they give a high dose of them and then taper them off in less than a week or so.

thanks, Molly! I really like it.

1:52 pm
uusue2

there's a steroid that's more specific for Crohn's; he was on it last year before we found out he had cancer. It has a lot fewer side effects. It was really expensive but now that he's on my insurance they should cover most of it - don't know if that's what the doctor will recommend but we shall see.
1:52 pm

Thanks, car!

It is a beautiful poem, uusue!

Do you remember the name of it Sue?
1:54 pm
uusue2

budesonide, maybe? Let me look it up.
1:55 pm
uusue2

Yes, that's it. It comes in an inhalable form for asthma and in pill form for Crohn's. One month cost $1100 last year when he didn't have prescription coverage.
1:56 pm
harpjane

done
1:56 pm
Nef

budesonide is a specific steroid for Crohns when taken orally; it's also very good for asthma when used as an inhalor
