Hello Irish Molly with your lovely symbols
4:57 am
MollyL

Ooo-la-la
4:57 am
MollyL

I have to get a lot of work done this Saturday because next Saturday is all about The Day
4:58 am
rubyfoo

What are you planning?
4:58 am
MollyL

Well, Irish meat pies and corned beef and cabbage for food. And a shamrock cake.
4:59 am
rubyfoo

l'll see if l can get a flight LOL
4:59 am
rubyfoo

<-- loves corned beef & cabbage
5:02 am
MollyL

I do it all mixed together, somewhat like a hash and it turns out very nice. It makes a nice plate too, with all the colors (I put corn in it...little gold nuggets)
5:14 am
rubyfoo

l'm hungry but don't know what to eat.
5:20 am
rubyfoo

l made vegetable soup yesterday, so l guess l'll eat that. lt could be worse!
5:25 am
MollyL

I'm glad you are having nicer weather, Ruby. It is chilly here. Spring is taking it's damn time to take root. Even though the trees are getting pink and the jonquils are up.
5:28 am
sukee

Good morning. Our snow refuses to go away. Well, it falls, then disappears overnight, then it falls and disappears overnight. It's also cold this morning. I need spring.
5:29 am
rubyfoo

The jonquils' buds survived the cold & snow, but they haven't opened yet. But the house is full of flowers -- brought by friends, all white: amaryllis, lilies, tiny roses in clusters plus deep violet arum lilies and lots of palm fronds and aspĆ aragus fern. lt makes a lovely "tablescape"
5:29 am
rubyfoo

Hello Sukee
5:29 am
sukee

That sounds nice Ruby
5:30 am
rubyfoo

l can't exercise 'til the embolism goes awaay, but l am feeling pretty well
5:31 am
rubyfoo

and very very lucky!
5:33 am
sukee

Clocks jump forward here tomorrow, at least that is another sign of spring.
5:34 am
rubyfoo

l think it's not for another week or two 'til the time changes. l guess the computer will tell me.
5:35 am
sukee

Yours is on March 25 :)

I have recently been turned onto some great bourbons and find that I like them.. I used to just drink scotch

I've never tried bourbon, but my husband likes it on occasion. This isn't the type of event we would normally attend, but they had me at BACON. :)

oh.. keep an eye out for Elmer T Lee bourbon. it may change your mind
10:39 am

it is so delicious and perfect

I just read that to my Beloved, and he said we will look for it, and to tell you he's more of a Scotch person too.

he can try it in a restaurant first.. it's pretty hard to find otherwise ch
10:42 am

it's kind of allocated on the wholesale market and retailers who are lucky enough to get a bottle put outrageous mark ups on it generally
10:42 am
ch1212

Will have to leave my last 12 for tonight at the hotel. (Sure, because after bourbon tasting, bacon and the wines that will also be there, I should be in great shape to play babble! lol!)

I told him, ru. Time for me to scoot.
10:43 am
rururocks

ok.. have fun
10:43 am
rururocks

appears that Babble's username/password data has been hacked. I don't know if this happened recently or long ago, but my email and password popped up on a site that tracks hacked data (my geeky brother tracks these things). If you haven't changed your password in a while, might be a good idea to do so, and change other passwords too if you use the same password on other, more sensitive accounts.
10:44 am

here you go molly and anyone else not on face book

Thanks Ru. Someone would have to be pretty desperate to hack this board.

I don't know. The "message" about hacking wasn't specific about Babble or Expert. And for some, they are interchangeable. To be on the safe side, I would change your password in both places.

Hi Trifio

hello nef!
4:49 pm
Nef

How are you doing lately? (I haven't been around much; I had hand surgery in January & am just getting back to using my computer again)
4:50 pm
Trifioso

oh dear, I am so sorry to hear about your surgery! I am sure it was a worry for you. Are you in much pain?
4:52 pm
Nef

It was for thumb arthritis. It still gets sore; but was worse before surgery. This is more of a sore from fatigue
4:53 pm
Trifioso

ah. I am glad to hear it has improved your situation! Not much new here - I have been doing a LOT of work on my house, getting it ready to have a new floor laid in an upstairs room where pipes burst NYE.
4:53 pm
rururocks

are you thumbs up now nef?
4:53 pm
Trifioso

the contractor is starting the floor next week - will be glad to have it finished
4:54 pm
Nef

what a bad NYE that was!
4:54 pm
Nef

yes, ru; doing much better
4:55 pm
Trifioso

actually, the funniest thing - it was in what we call the "teen room" where tertiare and her friends hang out. the burst pipe didn't slow them down ONE BIT! THey just avoided the wet bits and partied the night away....ah, youth!
4:55 pm
Nef

Oh, MY! Crazy kids!
4:56 pm
Trifioso

baby's first hangover.....
4:56 pm
rururocks

4:57 pm
rururocks

as long as they were safe in your house it sounds good to me
4:58 pm
Nef

I guess I'd be on your beloved's side; how bad was the flood?
4:58 pm
Trifioso

they were indeed, and they, uh, shared their goodies.
4:59 pm
Nef

OH! NOW I get the comment about hangover!
5:00 pm
rururocks

I think it's really good for youngsters to understand partying and being safe and then learning drinking boundaries by not feeling great the next day. I don't ever get hung over.
5:01 pm
doseffing

... any more?
5:01 pm
rururocks

any more
5:01 pm
rururocks

I did in my teens and twenties
5:02 pm
Nef

You are so lucky, ru. I've learned that I just can't drink. I have a rare glass of wine on Christmas or NYE; but I usually end up paying for it the next day.
5:03 pm
rururocks

i cut myself off after a glass or two. i just don't like the feeling of being drunk
5:03 pm
rururocks

wine that is.. when i have a cocktail.. i have just one
5:07 pm
Nef

I think I once told you (ru) that my hubby told me that he dated me because I was a cheap date, or maybe a cheap drunk. Basically 2 drinks & I'm drunk. 1 small glass of wine is more than enough for me since I do feel it's effects
5:07 pm
Nef

(He'd once dated a gal who drank *him* under the table!)
5:07 pm
rururocks

yeah.. i grew up with alcoholics.. so it's a matter of choice for me
5:08 pm
Trifioso

my dad raised us in what he called the "French style" -- we could always have a little glass of wine or whatever with a meal, on sundays. It taught me a lot about HOW to tolerate alcohol
5:08 pm
rururocks

that's good parenting i think trif
5:08 pm
Nef

That's a good plan, Trifio
5:09 pm
Nef

Unfortunately, there's a lot of drunks in my family tree; so I've tried to warn my kids about that too.
5:09 pm
rururocks

when i went to paris we saw a family of four (two little kids) enjoying Macon Villages with their roasted chicken.. it is good when you can make it part of the meal and just food, and not a beverage to get loaded on
5:10 pm
rururocks

I've been looking up Manhattan recipes today.. i want to learn how to make a perfect manhattan
5:11 pm
Nef

One of my uncles told me that there were 2 types of drunks in the family; those who could drink like a fish & then pass out & then those that pass out after just 2 glasses of wine. He said he was in the second group.
5:12 pm
Trifioso

I was pretty much the same way with my kids past the age of 14. If they were going to be home ALL night, and absolutely NOT driving, they could have ONE beer, or mike's hard lemonade, or A glass of wine. This policy did NOT extend to their friends, as those children don't belong to me.
5:12 pm
rururocks

both my parents had unbelievable tolerance for alcohol
5:12 pm
Nef

Are there lots of Manhattan recipes, ru? And how do you compare them?
5:12 pm
rururocks

there are lots of recipes
5:12 pm
Trifioso

I am quite a lightweight, so two glasses is my limit
5:13 pm
Trifioso

count for the n please?
5:14 pm
rururocks

i think if you don't drink a lot trif.. it's easy to be a lightweight
5:14 pm
rururocks

no 5 / 12
5:14 pm
Trifioso

I don't drink a lot.
5:14 pm
Trifioso

riom
5:14 pm
Trifioso

sorry
5:15 pm
Nef

My uncle told me about his poor tolerance of alcohol right at the time of the tail hook scandal; & he was a retired Navy Commander that had flown & taught jet pilots. I asked how he'd made it through those tail Hook parties.
5:15 pm
Trifioso

thank you ru. got it
5:16 pm
rururocks

I don't drink a lot either.. although I'm around alcohol every day all day
5:16 pm
Nef

He said he learned to carry around the same glass with a drink in it all night; because if people saw you with a glass in your hand, they wouldn't offer you another.
5:17 pm
Nef

that bottom c is evading me; could I have the stats please?
5:17 pm
rururocks

then you'd be called a lush.. party attendee: look at that lush NEF.. she's always got a drink in her hand

MollyL

A good Manhattan depends on the quality of liquor you use and the balance of the sweet and dry vermouth. I don't like vermouth, so I don't do Manhattan's.
5:18 pm
Nef

LOL, ru!
5:18 pm
rururocks

i like vermouth in small doses.. that's why i want to try different receipts
5:18 pm
rururocks

5:19 pm
Nef

Thanks ru, I should have seen that sooner
5:20 pm
rururocks

i have to get the bitters just right too
5:20 pm
Nef

If I have a drink in my hands now, ru; it's always water. To me, that tastes better than alcoholic drinks.
5:21 pm
rururocks

I'm more of a camel.. i don't drink a whole lot of water
5:21 pm
rururocks

party attendee: Look at that lush NEF.. she's always got a big glass of straight vodka in her hands :D
5:22 pm
Nef

We drink lots of water here; DH likes to flavor it with those liquid drops they have now; I like it plain.
5:25 pm
Nef

I don't care for this grid today; but I'm enjoying the chat! :-)
5:26 pm
rururocks

it's a little challenging this grid
5:27 pm
Nef

Do you still try to finish as soon as the new grid is out, ru?
5:30 pm
rururocks

not any more
5:31 pm
rururocks

i do try to finish up in the a.m. nowadays. I've been conking out earlier of late
5:32 pm
Nef

have you moved already?
5:32 pm
rururocks

moved to BC? no .. not yet
5:33 pm
Nef

any date set yet?
5:33 pm
rururocks

gotta find a house first
5:34 pm
Nef

Well, that makes sense! :-)
5:34 pm
rururocks

i have decided on the town though.. so I'm part way there
5:34 pm
Nef

Which town?
5:34 pm
rururocks

qualicum
5:35 pm
rururocks

so incredibly beautiful there..
5:35 pm
Nef

that is a good first step
5:36 pm
rururocks

now if just the right house would pop up
5:38 pm
Nef

I guess that will depend on what you are looking for in a house, doesn't it? Are you very fussy?
5:39 pm
rururocks

I don't think so.. i am just looking for a small house with a deck with a view or a porch with a view of the ocean. .. I don't need a mansion any longer if that's what you mean
5:39 pm
Nef

And a pool?
5:40 pm
rururocks

no pool
5:40 pm
rururocks

too cold for a pool up there
5:40 pm
Nef

really? That surprises me!
5:41 pm
rururocks

i'll have a pool here in napa.. i can use
5:43 pm
Nef

OH! So you aren't giving up the Napa house! Then that makes more sense
5:43 pm
rururocks

yep.. going to have two homes..
5:45 pm
Nef

That might be more fun then
5:46 pm
Nef

(except for the cleaning part)
5:46 pm
rururocks

i hope so.. i really want to be up there to explore more of the island
5:46 pm

ruru, it sounds like a lovely plan!

5:48 pm
rururocks

yeah trif.. i am feeling pretty good about the whole thing
5:49 pm
Nef

I hope someday to travel there; my nephew lives in BC (--which I know is huge); and the pictures I've seen there just make me want to see it for myself
5:49 pm
Nef

Hi Scrabs
5:49 pm
Scrabbler

Exciting plan for you, Ruru. Hi Trif and Nef
5:49 pm
rururocks

it is a really gorgeous place nef.. it is incredibly beautiful
5:52 pm

anything.....new scrabbler?
5:53 pm
Nef

How's things going for you scrubs? lots of snow for snowshoeing this year?
5:53 pm
Nef

And ru, someday I shall get there.
5:54 pm
Trifioso

I just googled the town, ruru, it's GORGEOUS
5:54 pm
rururocks

:D
5:55 pm
rururocks

told ya so
5:56 pm
Nef

I did the same thing; and it sounds like it's small enough to get to know others too
5:56 pm
rururocks

I've never been so at peace in my life than sitting there staring at the ocean
5:58 pm
Nef

So, is it even better than the ocean you would see in CA?
6:05 pm
rururocks

Yes
6:09 pm
Nef

And can you explain why (remember, MN doesn't have oceans here; so I'm really curious now)
6:11 pm
rururocks

the ocean is calmer on the eastern part of the island.
6:11 pm
rururocks

California's beaches have been built up and are more highly trafficked
6:12 pm
rururocks

you can go on the beaches there and be the only one on the beach for hours and hours
6:13 pm
Nef

:-) that sounds lovely!
6:15 pm
Trifioso

i have a technical question, but I am not sure how to ask....
6:16 pm
Trifioso

i had to update to Microsoft edge as a browser. It doesn't seem to work well with lickety - has anyone else experienced this?
6:16 pm
Trifioso

it puts tons of extra spaces in when I try to bulk add the list from babble to lickety, so the list doesn't copy over.
6:16 pm
Nef

Sorry, Trifio, I'm on a Mac
6:16 pm
Trifioso

lucky you! wish I was....
6:18 pm
Trifioso

entering each word makes the game a lot less fun
6:19 pm
Nef

I can imagine!
6:20 pm
Trifioso

i don't usually list, but I am 10 away from FW
6:20 pm
Nef

with a Mac, I can't use Expert; but on the whole I don't mind.
6:21 pm
Trifioso

i have never used expert.
6:21 pm
Scrabbler

Back. I am on call and was called.
6:21 pm
Nef

me neither ;-)
6:21 pm
Scrabbler

No prize yet. Considering an X-ray tomorrow or Monday. *sigh*
6:22 pm
Nef

Did you need to go in, Scrabs?
6:22 pm
Trifioso

oh man, scrabbler....what a stressful thing
6:23 pm
rururocks

oh.. jeez.. you'd think a little bit would come out
6:24 pm
Scrabbler

The call was about a 5 yr old boy just started on Adderall (amphetamine) and being very "emotional"--crying a lot. I wanted to tell the mother my real opinion = WHY would you allow your 5 yr old boy to be placed on amphetamines and WHO prescribed a medication instead of working on behavioral intervention.
6:24 pm
Nef

I call my hubby's 99 yr old aunt every Saturday at 11 AM; she told me she sprained her ankle last evening at suppertime; but doesn't want to see anyone until Monday "because she doesn't want to bother the doctor" over the weekend!
6:26 pm
Scrabbler

But young people have NO hesitation to call us for ANY little issue, i.e. Can I give my child Tylenol? What is the dose of Tylenol? Should Junior go to day care/school tomorrow? Can I send you a photo of Junior's BM?
6:26 pm
Nef

And it's a weekend; and he's 5???
(Both of my kids are ADHD; we never gave them meds unless they were in school; they had med vacations if they weren't in school)
6:27 pm
Nef

Oh, My, Scrabs. It sounds like parenting classes are inorder there!
6:28 pm
Scrabbler

He just turned 5 in November and my bet is that he is struggling in kindergarten, as is expected for boys, and, instead of normalizing the behaviors and allowing him to mature and develop for a few years, the mother felt compelled to medicate her son. It is so sad.
6:29 pm
Nef

That is sad.
6:29 pm
mkg

hi all. need clue for the N word and G word please. ty
6:29 pm
Q

i'm not anti-med for real adhd kinds or problems, but i'm having trouble imagining adderall for any five year old (much less being surprised that it would cause emotional side effects!). dang.
6:30 pm
Trifioso

wow, scrabbler, that is young....I tend to see things from further on - teens that cannot control themselves AT ALL, and clearly need some sort of intervention, because they are experiencing social isolation due to their impulsiveness
6:30 pm
Q

N word... not me! in french. kind of.
6:30 pm
mkg

my kids also have add and werent medicated until 2nd or 3rd grade at leasrt.
6:30 pm
Scrabbler

It is the norm now, Nef, and I refuse to participate in the epidemic of medicating children for age-appropriate behaviors.
6:30 pm
Nef

I hope she had him thoroughly tested and not just put on Adderall because she (or the teacher) wanted him to sit still
6:31 pm
mkg

adderall is NOT a good drug. better ritalan which is tried and true for so many years. adderall has too many side effects.
6:32 pm
Scrabbler

Thorough testing is no longer done, not even by psychologists or psychiatrists. Kids are diagnosed with ADHD so readily and medication is always recommended. There is no one I trust that I can refer kids to anymore. There are SO many reasons for impulsivity, inattention, and hyperactivity, mainly, being a child.
6:32 pm
mkg

dont know french. any other clues for N word and the stat please?
6:32 pm
mkg

scrabbler i totally agree with you.
6:32 pm
mkg

bad stuff today
6:33 pm
Scrabbler

When a child has a diagnosis of ADHD I don't even know what that means anymore. It is THE default diagnosis for any child with behavior and/or school problems.
6:35 pm
Nef

I agree with you too, Scrabs. When the teachers first suggested that my son was hyperactive; she wanted the school psychologist to evaluate him; I actually took him to a special childhood behavioral testing center & paid out of pocket for the testing.
6:35 pm
mkg

bad stuff. this nation of ours is crazy with our lack of good shrinks for kids. kids shrinks should be 100% covered by insurance so that we get them straightened out then and crime would go down as would violence.......
6:35 pm
mkg

we paid thousands for testing and it was worth it.
6:35 pm
Scrabbler

Nobody does a thorough evaluation anymore: nutrition, sleep, depression, anxiety, learning disability, family problems, discipline at home, videogames/screen time at home, etc...
6:36 pm
Nef

mkg, no5/12
6:37 pm
mkg

ty. any meaning?
6:38 pm
Nef

Would you believe it? My hubby was just diagnosed 2 years ago as being ADHD. I knew it probably as soon as I knew that our kids were both diagnosed.
6:38 pm
mkg

i am sure i have it and my husband probably too
6:39 pm
Scrabbler

I think all adults in contemporary society are inattentive and easily distracted. We live in a multi-tasking, rapid-paced, sleep-deprived society.
6:39 pm
Nef

no definition given; no + the first 3 letter of a wet cake
6:41 pm
mkg

looking. ty
6:41 pm
Trifioso

oh HELL no - I am calling full BS on the co 5.18. Absolutely NO self-respecting new Englander would spell that word that way!
6:41 pm
Nef

I believe my grandson is ADHD also; but my son refuses to have him tested and "drugged" (as he puts it). At this time; he is doing well in school; so I'm not pushing it; but the distractability is really difficult to deal with here at home
6:43 pm
mkg

nomou is not a word according to grid....hmmm.
6:43 pm
Scrabbler

If he is doing well academically then he is not impaired.
6:43 pm
Scrabbler

Change the last vowel.
6:43 pm
Nef

(change the last vowel that you put in, mkg
6:46 pm
Nef

You should see him bouncing off the walls here, Scrabbs. His teachers say he doesn't sit still in school either; but he's so pleasant (there!) that they don't try to make him stay in his seat.
6:47 pm
Scrabbler

Boys, and even girls, are not supposed to sit still all day. Even an adult's attention span is 5-7 minutes. We all need to move and take a break every 7 minutes.

True. Our grandson is 8 years old; he just earned his black belt in Tae Kwon Do last month. We've been trying to channel his excess energy that way.

And, with time and education, kids can learn self-control and self-discipline. Good for your 8 yr old grandson!

Scrabbler -- I did VERY well in school, but it was a struggle. I was diagnosed in my mid-thirties. Poor academic performance is not a requirement of ADHD. Many of us cultivated strategies and coping mechanisms, but that doesn't mean we were not "impaired".

i was always daydreaming in school and would get As and Bs but that was due to good i.q. i was considered an underachiever.

ADD is not a bad diagnosis as long as the right steps are taken to deal with it. my kids managed their own meds always.

the biggest issue was to fight the schools who want to control the meds.

I wish I were diagnosed and treated younger. I was a high-IQ over-achiever, but I burned out in the honors program at university. I just couldn't hold it all together anymore.
