I had DIVISION and ZERO -- what were the second Z-word and the other D/8??
zeroth and divinise

Oh shoot---- so near... you know I tried every darn combo, except----
Sorry Q, I forgot to say "thank you" -- how rude of me.
G,morning Christine, just printing my grid.
Marianne, goodmorning - so far, 120/2193; I have five 8s, and one 9.

After an hour I still only have 52 words......that's not even a quarter of the total!
Can you give a clue for the please
I meant to say can you give a clue for the 9 please
how did you reseal a loaf of bread?
Is that a clue steve dallas, if so I dont get it
thanks stevedallas - i got it.
I'm still looking
Thanks SteveDallas. The 9/78 is my 1st word.
I have 2 9s 1R and 1S is there anymore
Or should that be are there anymore
the third: 9D's for 72
No way are there 15 e's in here. I've only got 4!
What does 9D's for 72 mean?
You mean a clue for the word, or what does the message mean? I haven't found it yet, but it means that there is a nine-letter word beginning with D and worth 72 points.
I meant what does the message mean! Thanks I'm a babble virgin so I've not yet got the lingo yet! I haven't found any 9's the closest I've come is a couple of 8's!
Careful, it gets addictive - there's still a chance for you to get away :P
Too late I'm already addicted!!
I am having a lot of trouble with M's. My 11 all start with ME and I have Meex3, Merx2, and Metx6. I feel like I am missing something obvious.
I hav 5 Mee.., all the others you have more than me. I have two 6's, four 5's, and three 4's.
You are missing Meex3. There are 2 that are related and then 4 that are related.
Thanks guys, amazing how the words suddenly appear when you get a hint! Isn't it amazing how you can try 100 combos but somehow the only one you miss is the real word...
I just got all three i's like that - poof, all at once. Will be back later.. thanks all the help so far.
Es anyone? I have only 6:
I have two er's that are related
Thanks Steve Dallas for that 9!!
There is at least one other EC, and there are at least 3xER
Thanks carmen. There's a third in that series as well, if mine are the same as yours.
I have Esx5, including two related pairs.
I only have 6Es, 2ERS and 4ES
The D9 and S9 are giving me problems. Are they related to any other word I might have?
The D9 is part of a 6/8/9 series. I don't have the S9 yet.
is there a place on here where it tells you how many 9 letter words and how many 8 letters words etc...in each puzzle each day. I am new here...sorry
Yeh at 6-06am post
thanks for answering. It's only my second day!
The S/9 is most hidden. I say that because it took me forever to find it, and also because it is true.
7 letter words are the closest I have come...I have to warm up I guess...only my second puzzle
They say there is 13 8s but I only have 5
Thanks parsec - that's what it took to find it!
Oh, I don't know how I missed that D6/8/9, but I somehow discovered it or ascertained its existence, hee hee!
Here are the long words I have so far (still missing 2 8's):
Finally got all the nines! Thanks for the clues guys!
How is witter not a word? Perhaps it's just here in England where we tell people to stop wittering on!
oh man, i'm so stuck on the D9 word.
please please please give me a clue!!
think Inspector Clouseau sorta!
fnurt - I have all the same big words you do. Wonder what the others are!
thank you so much Mr Stevedallas!
its amazing how you can miss these things...
i think rewster is an alternative spelling (in Arkansas anyway)
The last 2 8's both start with S
One is for 75 and they are good on bagels
The other is for 50 and is one fourth of a denarius
you couldn't put my S 8/75 on a bagel!
i'm intrigued by the possibility of a different 8/75 word.....
my word had more to do with planning
there are two 8's for 75. The clue for yours was listed previously. I just filled in the missing eights.
I was thinking same thing...I couldnt put mine on a bagel either!! LOL Guess I am missing another s8 still?
I only have 97 words anyway...I'm a loser...LOL
I found the bagel one - pleased to know it's not just bad spelling :)
any clues for the w8?
i just had a bagel this morning...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......am I losing it that much???
W8: those who sharpen
thanks krys i'll work on it now
You need to have had a bagel at Noahs to get this one.
siteseer isn't a valid word. Well I give up
great since I never ate at a Noahs
I hate to think what you guys eat on bagels!
i have an idea but the spelling is off and i can't get anything close enough to it......
has anyone got any H words I have got one and just can't believe that there are any more!
how many s8 letter words are there? I already have one...
I have 3 H letter words so far...I need 2 more
well thanks Krys10, M<y appetite is satisfied
i meant to say i have 5 - S8 letter words...are there more?
FOUND IT FINALLY ---the bagel one...I see what was meant about the spelling...LOL...thanks for the hints!!
can't find the third and final I word either...I got the two that are related....
Hs were hinted at earlier, and the 8 letter words have all been given with starting letters, points and meanings earlier in the log. :)
I can't find the what you guys put on your bagels. Help
All 3 of the I words are related.
can't see any clues on H's which post was it on? Cheers, oops LOL!
thanks FNURT I got the other I word...never thought of that one....it was the ED one...didn't even know that was a word
marigold...its a little tricky...but I finally got it. it's kind of a spread.....................
I with you there, brathead, I didn't know it was a word!
i have 4 H words they are 5/20, 4/9, 4/7, and 4/7
I'm still stuck on that w8
There is another H/4/9 at the beginning.
I still need the 5/20 H word then...I have the 3 others you mentioned
I think I have part of it. Is there a C in the word
in the bagel word...yes there is a c marigold
Reading this log has made me hungry - I'm going around the corner to Noah's ;)
The H 5 for 20 is the plural of an H 4 for 9
that must be the h 4/9 I am missing though claws...lol...
the H4/9 I have is already plural...the plural of a 3 letter word
okay...just got the H5/20.....figured it out...now I am missing one...one more H4/9 maybe? I have H5/20 H4/9 and 2-H4's/7
i still havent gotten the R9...i got the other two 9s though
Stef, You there?
I just can't seem to find the bagel word. O well maybe I will see it later
marigold...ever see that movie...Birdcage? with robin williams and nathan lane?
there are no bagel words: it's a con. The two s8 words are more like a giving out and one is in the past
I do not have the S9. Is there any hints. please
Any hints for the S8 for 75 please
ther two S8 words are related to two other words which you must not tell a soul! shhh
There are two S8/75's: one refers to those who plot. The other is a slang term which I believe is from Yiddish, means a hodge-podge and also refers to a bagel condiment in certain parts of the US.
Sorry about the clues for Hs. I was thinking Hs, but it was really Es.
But for real, every single 8 and 9 letter word has been hinted at over two posts. One of them gives definitions for all but two of the words, and claws gave definitions for those 2 later in the log. I promise! :)
if you got the 6 letter S word for 24 points then you can get all the others that follow
Cant get the bagel clue
i should really scroll down, it's probably old news, but am sooo excited about this 9 for 78! really weird to have so little time to play anymore.
Krys10.... Thanks I finally got the bagel word. YEA!
Poephol, got the 'shh' clues thanks. But cant get the bagel clue :(
I'm missing the R8's - I can't find any definition clues, only point values. hint?
Is there is hint for the S9 for 66, I can not find it in the log.
marigold, there's a clue at 12:28 pm, but I still can't find it
I only have the R/8/55--it is built off of an S/4/6 (think about breaking off) with a prefix and suffix.
Thanks parsec I now have the R/8/55
Me too thanks. Still looking for the other R8..the 40
(just got it)
Krys10, Do you have the R 5/10 & 6/18? these should help you get the R8/40
Too late! :-)
Yeah Youngster, got them all at once.
I'm way behind on T's - where am I missing?
14xTE, 5xTH, 2xTI, 1xTR, and 6xTW. I feel like I must be blind to a certain corner or something..
Just got the S9 yeah!
You are missing at least 8xTE and 1xTR (I have a 4/5 combo for TR).
Haven't done so well on the 't's either. I only have 16!
Does the S/9 begin with SE?
periwinkle, yes, and is related to the 2 S8s
jlm, we have different TR's, then, because mine is a 5 with no corresponding 4 that I can find.
Just found a whole load of 't's hidden away!!!
I have 3 Tr's
i have 25xTE, if that helps.
I have 2 S/8's that are related but I can't figure out the s/9 yet. I will keep trying. :)
In that case, you have all the TEs, because I'm missing seven T's and they're all TEs.
periwinkle, add one letter to the end of you 2nd S8
youngster, if we are "talking" about the same S word. It ends in R. I keep trying to make it plural, but it will not take an S at the end. Am I on the right track?
I have 2 S8s, both for 75, and both are already plural... :(
My S8s are both for 50!
I have an S/8/50 and an S/8/55. Same word but different endings.
Ooooh, now I'm confused!
So there are at least another 3xS8, one for 55 and 2 for 75? Just realised my 2nd S8 isn't related to the first one,(sorry-but sooo close) but the first one is related to the S9 and S6/24
I just found the related 50- and 55-point S8s.
runningforhome, any clues for the S8/75s then :-)))
The big S's go (in order):
8/75, 8/75, 8/55, 8/50, 8/50, 9/66, 8/50, 8/50
Giving up on 163 5.24 3019
Too late for my brain to work anymore.
G'night all. Good luck.
Found the 8/55
Marianne -- I keep missing you ... I just signed on... I must hustle, to catch up with you.
I am still missing several R's. All of mine start with Re, and I have REEx4, RESx7, RETx9. Any thoughts?
Any clues for the S8/75s?
There should be three Is (eyes).... are we sharing the same grid????
I can't find any 'i's
The s8/75 is a clever little devil, quite devious but with a good plan
but there are more than one of them
Poephol, at last...thanks. But aren't there 2x8/75s
I'm missing one of the last two S 8/50s. Does it come before or after the coin?
Poephol, that clue just gave me 227 points for related words :-) Thanks - can't believe I'd missed them.
Daisy, you have a coin?
a good haul, youngster. happy to oblige. wish i could stay but can't keep my eyes open. poor performance tonight. goodnight all
I do! It's Roman.
fnurt - I have REMx2 and RESx9 but I'm missing 3 of your RET words.
And yes, there are 3xi words, all related.
Just found the 3 i's :-)
Thanks, jlm. I keep amazing myself by missing the easiest words!
That dratted third I...
and what happened to the other Hs - I have only one.
I found 4 of the H's but am still lost on the last one
Now - three Hs and two Is....
Ithink I haave all the 'biggies', so now I'll look for the two Cs, still missing.
Are there clues for the d/8 and d/9 anywhere/
No wonder I can't find the words -- I can't spell....'haave'... what's with that?
Anyone have a clue for the T- or R-8?
Periwinkle, think about something in your house that is illegal not to have, but can be annoying when you're frying something in oil.
Oh god, that was so vague...
runningforhome, I have no idea what you mean by your clue.
runningforhome, I do appreciate your help. Just wish I understood your clue. :)
Even knowing the words I had trouble parsing that clue. ;-)
Can anyone provide a hint for the last 2 S8s?
There's a clue for the D8 and D9 at 1:39.
youngster, may I have help with the I words, please
sleeky, thank you. I found the D/8.
Is the D/8 associated with the D/9?
yes, it's a plural.
I think I know what those last 2 s8s are supposed to be, but I can't make it come out right!
Do you mean the last 2 alphabetically? If so, they are both worth 50 points, though they use different high-point letters to get there.
One of them is the coin, for the other think school.
Thanks for the hints. The coin is the one that's baffling me. I know what it *should* be....
I think it's an alternate spelling. But, if you add 3 letters in front of a 5 letter T word that you probably already have, you'll find it.
Thanks! That gave me 3 new words. :-)
Is there a hint for the s/9/66 anywhere?
There's at least two. Shhh....
sleeky, I have the related S words, just can't seem to find the s/9 but will keep looking for a little while longer.
found the S/9, Thanks for the hints. Yea!
Are there any clues for the R/8/55 and the T/8/55?
do all of the I words start with IT
yes they do
perwinkle.... did you get the R8/55
Are there any hints for the T/8/55?
sleeky - do you have the R/9/78?
I do, finally. :-)
Are they related?
yep, that's why I asked. :)
D'oh! I can't BELIEVE I didn't have that already!
Thanks for the hint.
Even with all the long words, I will still suck at this, as usual. :-\
