Got the 8...but the 7 is eluding me.
Also a 7 for 52.
Just got two 7's and an 8. 7 for 48, 7 for 52, and an 8 for 65. Not bad, not bad at all for not using the dictionary, yet. I am begining to see past 4 and 5 letter words. Yee-ha :)

74 4.76 1137 .........Is that the time already time for some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's
Only have one 8 so far.
It would appear that there are less than 100 words and less than 1500 points in today's puzzle.
I would agree since I haven't even broken 750 yet. :(
This puzzle will surely separate the men from the boys ...
Hey, eyezzz.....aren't females allowed to work this puzzle?
and the women from the girls....
and the pinsters from the spinsters. One more well placed S and I coulda been a spinster :P
ok this puzzle sucks worse than yesterdays!! argh....
the puzzle stinks but i did better than yesterday
I've got the same big-word count as mulhermujer:
Does anyone have more than that, or other point values?
I've also got 33x4 and 17x5 for a total of 61/4.72/923
Can't seem to reach the 74/1137 target that was posted earlier. :)
there's 2 6s for 36 ...

Thanks Atalanate - found it! And it put me over 1000. :)
I don't know how I missed it. I have the 4-letter that is the past tense of that one.
Hi all :) EEK cant believe I have plumeted from 8th place to 45 overnight :o :O
Have ONLY done a couple recently and did not think it was a bad effort <shrugs> Oh well LOL
*rolls up sleeves*
This one blows. They've been pretty tricky recently, even though when you first look at them they actually look like a gold mine.
So far - 62/4.73/957 with 1 8, 3 7s and 7 6s. I just want 1000 and then I'll be on my way.
Well Sun LOL Cant say any biggies are leaping out at me yet ;)
Onwards and sideways :)
Ahh - 1019 now, just got my 8th 6! That'll do me for now.

Cheers jlm Sweetie :)
And the above is a clue for the 8 just found using the K ;) *licks lips*
So what do henchmen do if they don't hench, eh? Answer me that.
Are there any Kn words?
I have 2 that start with k
sorry mis read not kn
Actually there is an 8 with it in ...
See my clue >> Cheers ;)
But NOT starting with the K more in the middle really ;)
I got that 8, I was wondering if any one found any words *starting* with Kn
No kn words for me, but I keep trying . . .
Oh, and I totally thought hench should be a word too. But, alas, it's not even in the dictionary.
Got the 8 for 65!! WOO HOO!! :)
Oooo :p lol
But "thanks anyway" would have been nice! ;) LMAO!!
Thanks anyway :)
must have blinders on...can't find 8 for 65 although i did just make a word that i didn't think really was a word..lol
Not alot of sevens out there hmmm ??
Gonna have my henchman revise the dictionary.....
And - almost parsnip and turnip, yumm
suck at this one...and i even called mulher downstairs to see if she could give more of a hint...she denied me!!!
what kind of childcare provider is that???
Let's toast . . Cheers to Tolinya (hint, hint)
does it add to a 5 for 20 by any chance?
How many times do we have to say cheers to you Dear ?? ;) LMAO!!
er.... shall we try RAISING OUR GLASSES?? <<< LOL
why yes yes as a matter of fact it does
DOH...please pass me the dunce hat..and I'll sit merrily in my corner with my tequila bottle...gulp
LAM-laughing at myself...
DDDDDDDDrrrrrrrrrrrrr .... lol
LMAO!! Mines a Double Please ;) well done I can relax now *giggles*
Anyone got more than 2 Sevens ??
I have 3 7's
Okay just found the 3rd in fact :)
hehe i have no 7's lol and 1 very hardwon 8 HAHAHAHA burp
LOL Get back in the corner You!! ;)
Tolinya - All of us together make that 8. But you all by yourself doing the same would make it a 7 for 48 points. ;)
Another day without a rank...what DOES one have to do to make the list here? May I offer up Jo as a sacrifice to the Player Ranking God? (Sorry Jo - you KNOW I am motivated by recognition) hehehe
clearly too much tequila too early
woohoo <doing the cabbage patch> i'm gettin' the good hints i'm gettin' the good hints...
shuffles back to corner
Dont worry about the Rankings...
THEY DONT WORK!! ;) I SHOULD REALLY BE FIRST!! ;) :) :p LOL
I like a lighter shade of red.
Do you have it in its 7-letter form?
who me? <wavers drunkenly>
yup yup got it in the 7 and the 8 and the 5
hoo hoo a lighter shade of red...already got that one....lol
mulher told me earlier when i was making oatmeal that i needed to put my __ink'ing cap on
I meant the lighter shade of red. Don't think it comes in an 8-letter version. Does it?
Da*nit Jim I'm a Dr not a mechanic....
nope but i got the 6 and 7 for it...hehe
and wouldn't re(insert word) be re(insert word?) don't understand why it won't take that?
Yeah, that should be a word. But maybe it would be hyphenated.
ahh very true
jim_mi -- your 'lighter shade of red' comes in a 4, 5, 6,and 7 letter run.
Can someone provide me with a hint for the 7 for 60 points? I'm having no luck finding it. I found the other 2 7 pointers though.
Christine - yep, got 'em all! :D Had no idea the 5-letter was a word but tried it and viola!
Minski - It is based on a 4-letter word for 12 points. You can make a 6 letter from that, then pluralize it.
Also, it is something you might do if you're also part of the group doing the 8-letter word. They often go together. :)
Thanks jlm_mi! I'm now receiving 20 lashes with a wet noodle for missing that one. I had the 4 and the 6 but I didn't pluralize it. DURH!
Christine ~ Thanks for the 5er. I missed that one. I can't believe they are counting that.
Right Dwarlings Im done already ~ 72 words to fry for LOL if there's many more out there I'm a Dutch Man ;)
*gets out clogs* lol
Someone much earlier posted 74/1137. I've been sitting at 69/1065 for a while now and may have to learn to live with that. :-P
Cheers jlm_mi...like minski i had the 4 and missed the extentions...duh
Hey Sue, if you are gone i missed you ...if not HI!!!
Minski - think of eating your lunch (4 ltrs) and take it from there.
Now, does anyone know how many 6-7-8 pt words in this grid? I have 8/6s, 3/7s and only one 8pt. 51 for 906 - I'm going out for lunch.
Christine ~ That's the count from this morning from someone else.
So far that's it for 6-7-8 letter words. I don't think anyone has posted more than that. A ways down I posted how many points I had for each of my 6-7-8-letter words. Do yours match or maybe you have some I don't? I did get the second 6 for 36 for a total of 8 for 6-letters.
I've got the same as you jlm_mi
I have seven 6's, I guess I am missing one of the 30-pointers.
The two 30-point 6s are made from the same set of letters, just in a different order.
are there two 6s for 36 or for 30? I have one 30 and one 36 and am confused if I should be looking for another 30 or another 36.
10 6s, 3 7s, and 1 8
anyone have more?
Ive slipped 74 places in the rankings. Ah well. more study needed!
amp - there are two of each
nutkin - mind sharing the point values of your 6s?
point value of 6s:
42, 36, 21, 30, 24, 36, 24, 30, 24, 27
the 6 for 21 i only got because of a typo
nutkin - thanks for putting the point for the 6s in order - helps to know where about in the alphabet to look!
and it's much easier for me to copy and paste :)
this is a weird one
I need the 6 for 27 points to get all 8....i will find it!!!! LOL Got 3x7's and 1x8...but only on 50 word...need to get another 20 plus from somewhere!!!
sapphie - check out nutkin's post before. There are at least 10 6-letter words.
Yay - got them! And the 6/21 also gives you a 5. :)
*waves to sapphie*
Cup Cake start with wot Pastsie likes doing more than anything!! ;) CHEERS<< then keep adding to it for the max 8 yeah!? THANKS ALOT!! LOL
Must flyyyyyyyyy byyyyyyyyyyyyyy ;)
I have 3 words that start with H that all have the same 1st 3 letters. Are there any others?
Also are there any words that start with the R in the lower left hand corner of the puzzle?
I also have only those 3 beginning with h.
Do you mean that farthest lower left R? I don't think it's possible to start anything with that. But I have two that start with the R just one up and to the right from it.
Thanks jlm_mi. I have those 2 also.
Well I've finished my work for this evening....so I'm free to Babble!!! HURRAH!!!!!
63/1013 and thats all folks
Oi HUH!!! Got that one bloody ages ago old thing!!!
still missing 2 6's: 21 and the first 24
On a related note to Minski's ? - Does anyone have more than 3 words beginning with C (all three are related)? And has anyone used the L at all, anywhere in a word?
I have the same 3 C words and also have not used the L.
Still missing three 6's though.
JKMAZ2003 - Those were the last two for me to get too. The 24 you're missing is a word you'll recognize, but probably would never use. It relates to a tree.
The 21 is not a word many would know. It's the plural of a 5-letter word. Based on points, you can determine that it must contain the D (the only letter on the board worth 2 points) and 5 other letters worth 1 point. Also, the list below is in alphabetical order, so it should become very obvious what the starting letter is. . .
Hi perwinkle Have you started this one yet. It is tough. I only got 49 words
Hi perwinkle Have you started this one yet. It is tough. I only got 49 words
jlm_mi thanks so much

JKMAZ2003 - Glad to help. I know how frustrating it can be to stare and see nothing!
Christine - I'm at 72/4.78/1122. Here are my starting numbers:
Marianne or Liz, help me! What's the six letter for 21 points??
jlm and christine...cheers, you have got me fired up again, got the 6 for 21points, need the first 24 and the last 27 yet :)) Gotta love babble!!!
*returns from suEpermarked well trollied* lol
Sapphie Oh Tart Dear er...
OKKKAYYY you got that already ?? LOL well what can one help you with wot.. wot...
Christine I don't have that 6 letter mine have more points. I am also trying to find the other 2 C words.
I have 5 that start with E.
Still missing the second 6 ltr for 30. >:(
Very glad to have power, however -- how dare the storm knock out power when I was on a roll Tues PM?? ;-)
This bloomin' game makes you use your eyes, but.... it's so frustrating to miss words... look, it's only six letters, and I know one is D, so what's stopping me??
Depends how frustrated I get Suebeedoo...i am on the wine box and it was a new one too....last day at work tomorrow so time to get trollied too.
But alas that means very little babble for the next several weeks :(( holidays wot wot!!!
on a good note i've got one of the c words...can't seem to decipher the other though..one is related to your pearlies
LOL You still Brewing up a storm again hmmm ;)
Have you got the 24 that starts with wot you look for in a haystack btw Sweetie ?? ;)
Tolinya - My c words are all related. There is a 6 and a 7 that build on the base 4-letter.
Must go look for the 5th E word!
Harder to find than a needle lol
Marianne - you have mail!!
Okay, kids - off to get a pedicure,... can't scare the doctor, on Monday.
um there's no y in here...
at least i usually look for hay in a haystack
unless we're talking taters
Huh - Are you from not the US? Cause here we usually look for a needle in a haystack.
Huh nope don't have that 24..now i'm searching
shhh...don't disturb mind on a mission...
haystacks are also potatos...and yup i'm here in the us...frying in a frying pan at the moment...
please insert <e>
doh my bad..sorry to interrupt
I've never heard of haystacks being potatoes. Like hash browns? Shredded?
But I wondered if in the UK or maybe Australia they use a different phrase from "needle in a haystack". Not needle, but something like it . . . There is a 24 that starts with that word.
Begins with pin not needle, but dont tell anyone ;) lol
yeah not sure who serves haystacks but i think you can get them in the frozen food section...
Christine you have mail!!!!!
jlm yeah sorry they're like hashbrowns except the potatoe is thinner sliced or sliced thinner
Wah-hooo found another 6 :) :)
that's good that it begins with that cuz there was no way i could link the dle to the nee...
Huh..it'll be our little secret
as long as you don't tell about the tequila problem...
My lips are sealed *wink*
There is one 8/65 anything bigger?
<shrugs shoulders from corner of room>
UHHH - NOPE!! NOTHING BIGGER HERE!! :p
Anyone care to join me ??

Tequila, growing hair on yer... our g'father had an expression that <insert food name> will put hair on your chest... just what little girls wanted to hear..
Okay, I now have 61 words, for 1006 points.
Somewhere the sun is over the yardarm - maybe I should get a G&T, instead of a cuppa...
well it's past a yardarm or whatever here...it's 2pm...and only 97 degrees out..sigh a break in this cursed weather...
beep beep goes the alarm on the tv..thank you for checking in on thunderstorm central..next storm located at BLAH BLAH
RAIN THAT'S ALL I WANT i'll take the heat they make deoderant for that
Way to Go Christine I hate drinking alone Sweetie ;)
CHEERS!! THANKS ALOT!!
Christine..if you have a problem with hair...in wrong spots..there's always Nair..LOL I'm a poet...haha..sorry
Tolinya - I live in Little Armenia (so posted on street signs) in Los Angeles. I should give the ladies the name of your wine... they surely must be drinking something else, God love 'em.
Oh DUH! I *have* the 6 I was looking for -- I just can't count! ;-P Time to quit!!
Christine I have only 56 words and I am really not going to get any better. I think I need vallium to keep me going.
Does that put hair on your chest!
LOL it was in a wierd clay bottle..not sure if it had a name the gentleman who brought it back was stationed there for a bit in the military..it was very sweet/sticky tasting
Sheesh if its Rain you want just book a ticket to the UK its never stopped *groan* Even the Ducks are Complain'n lol
hey i'm only at 22/471
we got our first rain on monday since april...sigh
Sometimes the words are so dumb you just get annoyed by finding them. The 6-letter tree word is a good example.
ok gimme something else to search with the left part of my brain while the right side of my brain works....
ok 6 letter tree...<insert mission impossible music>
Tolinya you want RAIN then come to London. It has been raining on and off for weeks and this is English Summer.
i wish...we just went to tx where it's friggin' flooding. did i see any rain?? NO
Hee-hee, got me a Commie word! So cool that it accepted it. Only 22 pts, but that's 22 more than I has before :)
Tolinya - you must be on the Left Coast??
Y'know, when you first look at this grid, its a B+++++r, but there's a whole lotta words hidden there...
I have three birds and an animal (thanks to my Marianne), and I've completely blown my alloted 45 minutes - I've been here, on and off, almost all day.... well, keeps us off the streets, and out of bars and poolhalls,
The 6 letter tree word do we have them in England, not that I know many English trees.
Make that 66/1055

I got the tree but I have never heard of it before. But then there are loads of trees around.
What's with the weird rankings -- they changed, today, which is nice, but they left-off my family... Marianne, liz and Tom.
Christine I am in the rankings waaaaaaaaaaay down about 390 Not bad seeing as I was 150 the other week. I must be bad!!!
kk off to dr's...wish me luck with the pneumonia child...

OK..there are no maore 8's
Okay, sapphie, Is that true or are you just saying that because I asked?
From reading the message board from the start, there is only one 8, 3x7 and 10 or maybe 11x6
Thanks, sapphie, I have the one 8, three 7's and 6 of the 6's.
Got the tree 6 letter bugger.....so just the 27 point 6 left (unless HUH found another one ;)) begining with an s, t or w....i will have YOU!!!
Winner, I am up to 45. Still looking. How are you doing?
How many letters is the tree?
And is it an actual tree name, or does it just related to them? Because I have a tree-related word that is six letters...
What does the tree word start with. Did I miss an earlier hint?
I've got one food, but no tree. Here's the breakdown of what I've got:
c x 3
d x 9
h x 1
i x 2
k x 2
p x 6
r x 9
2 x 8
t x 1
w x 6
What am I missing?

ooooooooooooo...just found one
perwinkle did you forget what today is.
perwinkle did you forget what today is.
I have 72/4.76/1114 and can't find anymore. Here are my stats for anyone interested:

One of the K words (and its singular form) is the brand name of a popular fruit juice.
is the fruit drink popular in the USA/
Now see.... if thats a US fruit juice we brits/others wont have the foggiest!!! LOL
Well...this should help you Brits. The fruit juice name also means: A medieval Scottish or Irish foot soldier.
A loutish person.
I found one k word but I am pretty sure it is not the fruit drink. I don't know of any fruit drink that starts with k.
Thanks mulhermujer....being an archaeology major i got that from your clue....but i am TOTALLY convinced i typed the singular form in earlier, 'cos i knew it as a wird....freeky babble!!!
*that's* a fruit juice? What flavor is it--sweaty Scots? (no offense intended to any Scot, sweaty or otherwise,, but this puzzle, this game is driving me insane!)
woo hoo, I found all of the k words by accident.
52 at 850, not sure I can find any more
Kerns is made by Libby, which in turn is under the Nestlé umbrella of companies. I have know idea if that will help, but any other clue would just give it totally away.
Yes, I have seen that brand on the shelves in the supermarket.
I cannot believe I just did that!!! I totally gave it awwy without thinking!! Ah for heaven's sakes, I need to pay more attention to what I am doing. I obviously have been on here too long. First I give the name away, then I turn around in the same post and say that I can't give any more clues. I'm an idiot. :(
For definition of moron, see mulhermujer - giver away of words.
That's okay. I got the word before you gave it away.
Arrrrrrrrrggggggggg!!! I still cannot believe I did that. I'm takin' a break.
lol...go have a Kerns...
I have 54 I do not think I will get many more.
OK i need that 6 for 27 points....narrowed it down to starting with an s i think...any clues???
I found a 6 for 36 points
I got an 8 for 65
I have 55. Can't find any more. Good night.
I have a 6 for 27 that's kind of a mess
Hello Babblers! I can't see yesterday's puzzle.
What was the G word that had to do with smiles and Johnny Carson ;)
I keep seeing penis, lol
Me too Riff, lol!
Brain dead 74/4.73/1114
The 6 for 27 is the past tense (or adjective form) of a 5-letter verb for 16. It does start with S, and only has one vowel.
The tree words is a common tree (at least in the US), but it's not the name of the tree exactly. It indicates that something is more like that tree than something else (ends in er).
Maudie - Yesterday's G word having to do with smiles was girn. No idea how that relates to Johnny Carson?
Jim - it was late here...so I think I was confused. Johnny Carson was a clue for something else?
Thanks for the word!
GIRN - Johnny Carson would have girning contests - too awful for words, people screwing their faces into horrible shapes....yech
i'm loosing my mind
Haha, I have it jlm!
I still can't locate the 6 for 21 :(
Ah well....I'm stuck at 63/1025
Me neither. I finally found the tree related one though. Didn't know that was a word.
time for ni ni.
I have the two related Ks, but cannot, for the life of me, think of the other...
Hi CBG! An *wave* to Jo and Jill
an all time low for me 27/519
47/850, quite happy with that!
'At 06:43 pm sapphie said...
lol...go have a Kerns...'
That's funny ;) lol
Mulhermujer- The commie word was one of the first ones I found and I laughed too when it took it. Mujer is Turkish for woman as I recall. I don't remember what Mulher is though. ???
I didn't know that mujer is Turkish for woman. Its Espanol for woman as well. Mulher is woman in Portuguese. Mulhermujer is part of my email address. I wanted just Mulher, but somebody already had that. I thought it was so cool when I found the commie word. What is your screen name?
Pleonastic? You'll have to look it up in the dictionary. <evil grin> Mightynancy says it fits. ;)
Christine - don't forget to try names.
