8:08 am
Bogwoggle

sorry, cat did it!
8:08 am
MollyL

Man, those cats take the blame for everything.
8:12 am
Bogwoggle

He lays all over the desk and pokes at the mouse and rolls over the keyboard. He can do stuff with the computer I don't know how to do. Like open iTunes, select and play a song and make it all disappear leaving me wondering where the music is coming from. Darn cat!
8:14 am
MollyL

And apparently he likes ramen noodles.
8:15 am
MollyL

If your credit card suddenly gets racked up with mega-charges to Amazon for Fancy Feast, you will know who the culprit is.
8:15 am
Bogwoggle

lol...I kept typing wondering where the words were going!
8:17 am
Bogwoggle

And he actually does eat fancy feast. He is watching me type and I'm sure wondering how he can mess it up. If you get some mysterious messages about being held captive and fed only cat food - that would be my boy.
8:22 am
ursh

Interesting - we have 5 cats and one of them refuses all other food except for Fancy Feast - wonder if it the same as you get in Canada. Comes in little tiny tins with a ring top to open ?
8:23 am
MollyL

I'm pretty sure Fancy Feast is Fancy Feast no matter where you buy it.
8:24 am
ursh

Probably Molly
8:25 am
MollyL

The very idea that there is "gourmet" cat food cracks me up.
8:25 am
Bogwoggle

Yup. But he only likes the grilled stuff. A trifle spoiled. We lost him while on a camping trip to northern Alberta and searched for 8 days. Finally had to leave without him. 4 months later we got a call from a family. He wondered in out of the bush and ingratiated himself with the family. His tags were still intact and the family had read our lost adds posted everywhere. He lost 4 pounds and was very matted and dehydrated but bounced back quickly. Hence, we kinda spoil him.
8:26 am

Good morning
8:27 am
bichon

From a dog household, mine won't eat kibble unless it is mixed with something tasty
8:27 am
ursh

That is incredible Bogwoggle - to get him back from the bush like that - wonder how many lives he used up on that excursion :)
8:28 am
car.eeyore

wow
8:29 am
Bogwoggle

We were totally amazed. I think he survived partly because he is allowed outdoors and likes to hunt. We had taken him all over Alberta and BC without incident. Now we leave him with family or put him in a fancy Cat hotel!
8:29 am
MollyL

My kids have a cat that went missing for a couple of months. Everyone thought she was dead and suddenly, she turned up. Which is a good thing because they treat that cat like it is their child.
8:30 am
Bogwoggle

It's amazing how attached we get to our pets. We also have 2 small dogs that just as spoiled.
8:33 am
bichon

We treat Marco like our child. He is amenable to that.
8:35 am
Bogwoggle

Our dogs are shih tzu/bichon crosses. Lovely combination.
8:35 am
bichon

I would say so
8:37 am
flosey

falling asleep!! even after the coffee, but thanks again Molly, did find quite a few words. 72 to go and they'll just have to wait - bbl

bichon - remove the curls the hair salon provided
8:42 am

ty ursh. Do women still have thosedone?
8:43 am
ursh

Dont think so - but it will surely become fashionable again one day
8:45 am
MollyL

Oh women still have those done all the time.
8:46 am
MollyL

Although that string straight, no body look for hair seems to be popular as well.

10:34 am
amelu0218

He went to the ER with flu-like symptoms, they admitted him and started pumping fluids in. Then they determined it was food poisoning (e coli), but by that time the fluids had carried it into his lungs. *shrug* That's why they call it "practicing medicine".

If glaucoma is fund early, I think it is well-controlled with drops. Both my (late) husband and my father had it, and neither one lost any vision.

I'm "too young" (HA) for cataract surgery. But they are little and not growing much.

And the key to aging well, besides being lucky with DNA and making healthy choices with eating, is being active. I know too many people that do not exercise at all and their bodies decay and seize up.

2:45 pm
moolingwa

word game dictionaries are typically arbitrary to some extent
2:46 pm
moolingwa

The dictionary here seems to be equivalent to TWL98 or something around then, which was the official US competitive scrabble word list
2:47 pm
moolingwa

The thing I do like, is that at least it's consistent with an official word game dictionary, a lot of word games seem to come up with their own...makes it hard to move between word games
2:48 pm
Deeha

gl8 - what sort of word is that??!!!
2:48 pm
moolingwa

sounds scottish to me ;)
2:49 pm
Deeha

I gave up the scrabble I played as -if you made up a word - it said 'are you sure' and if you said yes it was allowed!!
2:49 pm

scrabble is a bit odd...it's licensed to different companies in the US versus the rest of the world

Well, the help section of this game says that the point of the game is to find all the words YOU can find...etc. If you follow along with that...asking for clues, using web sites to find words is not...shall we say...kosher. But whatever.
6:34 pm
rururocks

yeah.. well.. .the help section doesn't give me much help on catching and passing Dart :D
6:35 pm
MollyL

The help section doesn't seem to give much guidance for being the best and the brightest.
6:36 pm
MollyL

And the way the statistics are set up, there is no way to "beat" someone who has played longer than you. (I am not a big fan of the way the statistics are set up here)

9:18 pm
sandyloo

The chooks are out in the day but locked in at night
9:18 pm

10:48 pm
Uneaixoise

whew! glad to hear!
10:51 pm
grannyrose

the hip one i put my finger exactly where the pain was and asked don to mark it. doc was highly amused but also grateful as he as able to find where he needed to inject quickly via the ultrasound.
10:52 pm

grannyrose

urshy, no, was too afraid to let anyone near my back. but this pain doc i have worked with for years. i was once told over 30 years ago that if i didn't have spinal surgery i would end up in a wheelchair WITHIN 5 years. fat lot that surgeon knows.
10:57 pm
hurshy

what did they inject?
10:58 pm
grannyrose

over 30 years ago, i managed to prolapse 9 discs. work injury.
10:58 pm
grannyrose

don't know hurshy. will find out on Monday
10:59 pm
grannyrose

into my hip the doc injected Kenacomb.
10:59 pm
hurshy

you let them inject stuff into your back and hip without knowing what...
10:59 pm
hurshy

o so you know hip but not back?
11:00 pm
grannyrose

yup. was pretty out of it in the hospital, lolll also had my ketamine infusion at the same time.
11:02 pm
hurshy

tell cuddy... i want ketamine
11:03 pm
Uneaixoise

it's pretty addictive, right?
11:03 pm

can I please have a clue for de8 Pleeese
11:04 pm

11:04 pm

idk, i thought it was a horse tranquilizer, and i didn't think tranquilizers were addictive, but what do i know
11:04 pm
Uneaixoise

i may have watched too much Law and Order LOL!
11:05 pm
hurshy

and i too much House
11:05 pm

isnt ketamine what Michael Jackson was using along with other stuff
11:06 pm
Uneaixoise

i think so
11:06 pm
sandyloo

ah thanks une and ketamine is used as a horse tranquilizer but also for humans
11:06 pm
grannyrose

yup, unsupervised too.
11:06 pm
grannyrose

doc's are still finding out all the effects of ketamine. in my case one of many things is that it stops my central apnoea.
11:07 pm
hurshy

i know what sleep apnoea is, but what is central?
11:07 pm
grannyrose

which means i keep on breathing 24/7
11:08 pm
grannyrose

central is in the brain itself. i don't obstruct, i just stop breathing
11:08 pm
Uneaixoise

a GOOD thing! :-)
11:08 pm
hurshy

whoa, that is v uncool
11:08 pm
grannyrose

it hapens when i am awake too
11:09 pm
grannyrose

it is scary when your body suddenly jerks and you realise you have to take a deep breath
11:11 pm
Uneaixoise

you know, since my car accident last year when the airbag just about blew me into the next county, occasionally I have big sudden intakes of breath . . .
11:11 pm
hurshy

i would think so!
11:12 pm
hurshy

(i was responding to grannyr - i would think it is scary)
11:12 pm
Uneaixoise

i knew that's what you meant :-)
11:12 pm
grannyrose

une.... it sounds like your breathing pattern has changed. perhaps some muscles aren't working as well as they ought to do.
11:13 pm
Uneaixoise

it's not all the time, just occasionally . . .
11:14 pm
grannyrose

anything specific, like position, time of day, or just random
11:14 pm

random . . . I think
11:16 pm

11:16 pm
