ah, found my last one. Enjoy the grid - not too many weird words, but some to challenge you. Have a fun Wednesday.. poofing off for some coffee.

Just in case you haven't seen you can get 4 free covid rapid tests delivered by mail. https://www.covidtests.gov/
7:50 am
BzznBea

Mine are one their way.
7:51 am
jmcnrick

:) I figure better to let people know who already know than not let people know who don't know yet
7:52 am
BzznBea

Yes, and I appreciate that. All my kids put in orders as well.
7:52 am
jmcnrick

yes my niece's reply was that she had already ordered them
7:54 am
jmcnrick

we didn't all get to join at my sister's birthday party because we couldn't get tests in time. That will never happen again! I make sure I have a few on hand at all times
7:55 am
hurshy

i'm getting tested weekly at the school where i tutor anyway now
7:55 am
BzznBea

I can't find any here.
7:56 am
welki

i wish they delivered to US citizens here - there are none available in Alberta
7:58 am
Shirlockc

do you have access to Canadian healthcare welki?
7:59 am
welki

yes, shirl (each province has its own individual programs, there is no one federal program)
7:59 am
jmcnrick

in DC they provide 2 rapid tests and one Antigen test to anyone DC resident that goes to one of 9 libraries.
8:00 am
jmcnrick

it was in part the issue of not getting jabs in Ireland that encouraged the boy to come back to the U.S.
8:00 am
Shirlockc

i'm a dual so plan on retiring back in TO
8:00 am
welki

they provide them here too, but just like toilet paper, people grabbed every single one of them when they were available. more are on the way (eventually)
8:00 am
welki

i'm dual too, shirl
8:01 am
Shirlockc

so do you do the 6 months + 1 day thing?
8:01 am
welki

nope, here full time
8:01 am
jmcnrick

to be clear that is each day. The first day was a nightmare but now they have a list of how many tests are in each place and it is generally not a big deal
8:03 am
welki

it's all a nightmare up here, jm - the positivity rate is (at least) 39% and, still, the number of maskless people in public places is astounding
8:05 am
welki

we've tried to do everything the right way, masking, waiting our turn for vaccines (so many people jumped the line), not hoarding, pretty much isolating full time, and yet it seems we're all going to get infected. *lets out a big wonkin' sigh*
8:07 am
jmcnrick

I pretty much stay in my house here welki
8:07 am
welki

on the other hand, here i am, comfortably sitting in front of the screen, coffee in hand. i've got it good.
8:07 am
Shirlockc

it's endemic now mostly, just hope that we don't get another worse variant
8:07 am
jmcnrick

My mail carrier just retired and I told him that he had been the person I had seen the most in 2 years
8:08 am
Shirlockc

it's me and the cat -- and the zoom calls
8:08 am
hurshy

6 to go!
8:08 am
hurshy

what's the C on the right?
8:08 am
Shirlockc

i'm feel a bit "off" when I am actually IRL with people
8:09 am
jmcnrick

I just took the UK test on likelihood that I would have a bad outcome if I got covid and it said (primarily because I am old and overweight) that I had an 84% chance of bad things happening.
8:09 am
BzznBea

ch6.33 i believe.
8:09 am
welki

i hear you, shirl
8:09 am
hurshy

thank you!!!
8:10 am
hurshy

ok that leaves 2 other C and one bottom S
8:10 am
hurshy

is there a C6/7 combo by any chance?
8:10 am
jmcnrick

go hursh go
8:10 am
welki

<-- doesn't want to take that test.
8:10 am
jmcnrick

I have 99 left! hahaha
8:11 am
jmcnrick

I wanted to be clear in my mind that I was not being paranoid and overreacting as some of my friends have suggested.
8:12 am
hurshy

aHA, yes, there IS a ch6/7 combo, for i have found it
8:12 am
hurshy

one S6 left!
8:13 am
hurshy

guesses welcome!
8:13 am
BzznBea

jm, I keep myself safe so I can keep those around me safe.
8:13 am
welki

you're not the paranoid "type," jm - you're, in my mind anyway, one of the most fearless women i know and it bothers me that others would suggest otherwise. it makes me angry that they made you feel you had to validate your fear
8:14 am
MollyL

Ido what Bea does
8:14 am
BzznBea

I'm still missing too many esses...
8:14 am
Shirlockc

100% with welki, i live alone, who will take care of me if i get seriously sick?
8:14 am
hurshy

GOT IT!!!
8:15 am
Shirlockc

and long covid is no joke either
8:15 am
jmcnrick

whoot whoot hursh
8:15 am
hurshy

ahh that was a pretty fun grid
8:16 am
jmcnrick

I live alone but my boy would take care of me but I remember my daddy had a friend who said: you are smart to have lots of kids so they can take care of you when you are old. Daddy replied. I want the to do something better with their time.
8:17 am
jmcnrick

*them
8:18 am
MollyL

I think the whole COVID experience has made a lot of people re-evaluate some of their "life choices".
8:18 am
jmcnrick

I agree Molls.
8:19 am
MollyL

*Passes Bea the tiara since she's in the grid
8:19 am
Shirlockc

also exposed some of the uglies
8:19 am
jmcnrick

sadly that too shirl
8:19 am
BzznBea

I've been wearing it proudly.
8:22 am
BzznBea

There were 427 new cases in my county of 45K yesterday.
8:23 am
bichon

Went to Home Depot and got 2 N95 masks
8:23 am
mattygroves

Boris Johnson (our PM) has lifted all mask requirements and work from home guidance from next week
8:24 am
Shirlockc

gov't will be distributing masks too
8:24 am
welki

i'm thinking that, even if mask requirements are lifted here, you'll not be seeing my gorgeous face anytime soon
8:24 am
mattygroves

It makes my blood boil. Masks are cheap, easy and don't affect the economy and do work - but work best when lots of people are wearing them
8:25 am
MollyL

I love it. Bea just helped herself to the tiara. She didn't wait for anyone to give it. 😊
8:26 am
BzznBea

I'll be keeping it for tomorrow as well. I might as well wear a tiara when I get a new crown.
8:28 am
jmcnrick

hehe
8:29 am
jmcnrick

I am with you matty on that. . .
8:30 am
jmcnrick

they lifted them in DC just in time for omicron. . . to a predictable disaster. I don't wear mine when I am out walking but once the sidewalk gets other people I put it on even when they were no longer required
8:36 am
MollyL

I still don't understand people who are wearing a mask while driving alone in a car.
8:38 am
BzznBea

I have two opinions on that. We were told at the very beginning of the pandemic to keep them on until we could remove them safely after washing our hands.
8:38 am
BzznBea

The second is you get used to wearing them and forget you have them on.
8:40 am
MollyL

Okay, but COVID is not transmitted through touch so number one no longer applies. And I would never have thought of number two because I detest masks and will never "get used to wearing them". Mine gets ripped off as soon as I am clear of whatever place I am in that requires them.
8:41 am
jmcnrick

I figure that I don't know if that person just dropped off someone who had been couching in their car and the particulates are still possibly airborne.
8:42 am
jmcnrick

so people need to do what makes them feel safe
8:42 am
jmcnrick

*coughing
8:43 am
MollyL

My neighbor says people are basically lazy and can't be bothered to take the mask off and put it back on several times a day.
8:43 am
BzznBea

I think you can get any virus by touching a surface that has been recently contaminated then touch your face.
8:44 am
jmcnrick

well that's fine too if it makes them happy and yes the CDC does still recommend washing your hands after removing you mask
8:44 am
MollyL

Bea, if that is true it astounds me that people are no longer wearing gloves in the grocery store.
8:46 am
BzznBea

I see a lot of people in their cars after shopping using hand sanitizer. I do.
8:46 am
jmcnrick

and a lot using it at the entrance/exit of the store
8:47 am
MollyL

Well, it is recommended that you wash your hands after you use the toilet too. But before you get to the soap and water you have already pulled up your pants, and touched several surfaces.
8:48 am
BzznBea

Speaking of grocery shopping...Need to get going...25 left for this afternoon.
9:06 am
redshoes

Morning all. Does anyone know what happened to Lickety? I hope everyone's safe and well!
9:09 am
jmcnrick

hi redshoes. Lickety's computer had a meltdown and he's waiting for parts. He thought maybe the end of this week it would be good to go again
9:10 am
redshoes

Oh good! I was afraid something happened to him. Better LIckety's computer meltdown than Lickety, himself! Thanks.
9:11 am
jmcnrick

agreed

a friend of mine was the only person in the world (really) who updated the software for all the clocks on all the computers/smartphones/etc until one day he realized he was in his 70s and he needed to share that task since he wasn't going to live forever!

Just heard a new song by Madi Diaz on the radio. You should check her out. I haven't heard anything from her in YEARS
9:32 am
72 Temple Owl

coopertheband and donnie lee strickland'
9:32 am
redshoes

Granted, the past couple of years have been light on radio for me.
9:32 am
redshoes

I'll check them out.
9:32 am
72 Temple Owl

the latter being pretty formulaic country
9:33 am
redshoes

I love that you used "formulaic" to describe country music. Seems more like a classical word. lol
9:33 am
72 Temple Owl

i am seeing the infamous string dusters this friday
9:34 am
redshoes

Never heard of them
9:35 am
redshoes

So, they can't be *completely* infamous. ;)
9:35 am
72 Temple Owl

well, i am reviewing for my audience, not for myself. the stringbusters are bluegrass they did tommy in its entirety
9:35 am
72 Temple Owl

the audience went wild
9:36 am

Nice. "Stringbusters" sounds like a bluegrass band.
9:36 am

Neat word. Had to look it up.
9:48 am

yes, it's fun to say
9:48 am

there are some fun words today
9:49 am
redshoes

Speaking of aminals, I got the CUTEST pup last year. Obviously, I'm biased, but everyone she meets also says she's adorable. They love her at the dog park. Her mom's name was Leia, so they named her Rey to keep the Star Wars theme going.
9:50 am
72 Temple Owl

what kind is she?
9:51 am
redshoes

American Cocker Spaniel. I use the hashtag #ReySkyPawker for her on IG and TikTok.
9:52 am
72 Temple Owl

after i saw lady and the tramp i begged for a cocker spaniel
9:53 am
redshoes

Yeah, she's basically adorable. She's "blue roan and tan" which is unique and makes her adorableness stand out even more.
9:54 am
72 Temple Owl

two folks here have english roans. they are so cute
9:55 am
72 Temple Owl

does she have a beagle like face?
9:55 am
redshoes

No. More Spaniel.
9:56 am
72 Temple Owl

i just googled and saw ones with the beagle coloring on their faces.
9:56 am

If you're on Instagram or TikTok, search for #ReySkyPawker

Give me a sec, I'll change my profile pic.

I updated it, but looks like it'll take a little bit to go into effect.

It's a pic from her 1st birthday last month

EXCELLENT clue ruru!
10:22 am

Molly, I did a hard refresh. I'm not that concerned about it. I'd clear my cookies, but I'm on my work computer and they've disabled remember login info unless grandfathered in from older versions.
10:27 am
redshoes

Okay, there it is! Just took a minute. Thanks Molly.
10:27 am
rururocks

I'm wondering what a hard refresh is
10:29 am
MollyL

It is not just hitting the refresh button at the top of the screen. It is pressing CNTRL + F5 on Windows. I have no clue how to do it on a Mac.
10:29 am
redshoes

"A hard refresh clears your browser cache for a specific page, which forces it to load the most recent version of that page. This could include new scripts, styles or features. Important: Clicking the "Refresh" arrow on your browser address bar is not a hard refresh.
10:30 am
redshoes

I really want "shite" to be a word.
10:31 am
MollyL

After doing a hard refresh, I can see the new icon. I have no idea why it isn't working for the person who posted it.
10:31 am

I'm the one who posted. Ha. It works now.
10:52 am

good morning everyone :)
10:52 am

love your icon nan hilarious
10:54 am

That should be next to the Mary Christmas sign in Bea's town.
10:54 am

:)
10:57 am
cybernan

I liked Molly's icon as well -- echo's my sentiments at the moment :)
11:01 am
jmcnrick

hard refresh clears the cache so you can just clear the cache
11:05 am
MollyL

JMC, you do realize that there are people who have no idea how to clear their cache...
11:06 am
rururocks

I didn't realize I had a cache.. must be a cache 22
11:06 am
jmcnrick

but there are people who do
11:08 am
jmcnrick

oh where are the rurus from yesteryear
11:08 am
jmcnrick

oh where are the rurus from yesteryear
11:11 am

wow ruru, cache 22, the awe also rises
11:21 am
MollyL

*Raise your hand if you think JMC is having a Jack Daniels lunch
11:22 am
cybernan

rot gut whiskey for lunch? ugh
11:25 am
jmcnrick

no, rarely for lunch Molls. And the boy brought me some single malt Irish whiskey
11:25 am
cybernan

ah - that is better, jmc
11:25 am
cybernan

going to need the list for the last 12
11:26 am
jmcnrick

except I can rarely afford it! haha
11:27 am
MollyL

Now THAT is a GOOD SON
11:27 am
jmcnrick

yepper he is. He won't tell me how much he paid for it so I have been very careful with it.
11:30 am
rururocks

what's the brand name jm.. i can tell you
11:31 am
rururocks

although you may not want to know what he spent.. maybe it's better that way whiskeys are expensive these days
11:33 am
MollyL

Jameson is only about 20 dollars more than Jack Daniels and totally worth it. Now if you're talking 17-year-old Glendalough, that is a different expensive story.
11:33 am
jmcnrick

I was just thinking that ru. . . he got it on 1/2 price sale in Dublin Black's Single Malt 12 year Limited Edition May 2018. That just screams expensive, doesn't it?
11:33 am
jmcnrick

I like Markers Mark myself.
11:33 am
MollyL

If he actually bought it in Ireland he paid way less than he would have here.
11:34 am
jmcnrick

apparently that is not always the case. We compared prices on a lot of bottles while he was there. He wanted to make sure he was getting the better deal.
11:34 am
MollyL

Dubliner?
11:35 am
jmcnrick

?
11:35 am
rururocks

I'm an Elmer T. Lee Bourbon drinker myself
11:36 am
MollyL

The name of the whiskey. Dubliner?
11:36 am
jmcnrick

yikes! that's too rich for my blood ru!
11:37 am
MollyL

Holy Shit. Just looked up Elmer T. Lee and passed out
11:37 am
jmcnrick

the whiskey he bought me was Blacks Single Malt Limited Edition. . .
11:37 am
rururocks

i get it for $150.. the markups are outrageous (it's supposed to be $65) because it's so rare
11:37 am
jmcnrick

me too Molls.
11:38 am
jmcnrick

So this whiskey is from the ones he made before he died?
11:38 am
rururocks

no.. it's a commemorative bottling
11:39 am
jmcnrick

I nearly died when a house guest gave me a bottle of rum that was over $100
11:39 am
jmcnrick

OIC
11:39 am
MollyL

Oh okay, the Blacks is some expensive shit. Even at half price.
11:40 am
jmcnrick

He said that one bottle was in a glass case and when he asked out of curiosity the price the owner of the store said it was too expensive to sell and was just there for display.
11:41 am
jmcnrick

I only have a sip left and he gave it to me last spring when he came back.
11:41 am
MollyL

Like menus with no prices on them
11:41 am
jmcnrick

exactly Molls
11:42 am
jmcnrick

if you have to ask you cannot afford it
11:43 am
rururocks

that's a price bottle you have there JM.. good kid
11:43 am
cybernan

there should be a cap on whiskey pricing - no greater increase than the cost of living hikes in salaries.
11:43 am
rururocks

pricey
11:43 am
rururocks

<agrees with Nan
11:44 am
jmcnrick

please don't tell me ru. . . a little bit of me wants to know but more of me doesn't
11:44 am
MollyL

Ah but that would never go over. Liquor generates tax revenues.
11:44 am
rururocks

I won't tell you.. but glad you enjoyed it
11:45 am
MollyL

I'll tell her. 8 gabillion dollars. There, now you know.
11:45 am
jmcnrick

lets put that cap on pharmaceuticals first so people can afford their medicine. As big as a drinker as I am I would be happier with that.
11:45 am
jmcnrick

ty ru
11:45 am
jmcnrick

:P Molls
11:46 am
cybernan

agreed, jmc
11:46 am
MollyL

Again, it won't go over. No money for the greedy insurance companies.
11:46 am
jmcnrick

it has definitely made it harder to drink Jack
11:47 am
jmcnrick

we can argue about who gets that money Molls but sadly I agree that it will be a struggle at the very least. . . there is a bill before Congress . . .
11:47 am
MollyL

I used to be able to drink Jack just fine. Once I started drinking Jameson, Jack tastes like horse piss.
11:47 am
rururocks

jack is far too sweet for me
11:47 am
rururocks

and harsh
11:48 am
MollyL

But then, I used to (gasps in horror) mix my liquor with ginger ale.
11:48 am
jmcnrick

I found I liked Jack less after trying Markers Mark and yes, it is harsh. I now drink it with a splash
11:48 am
rururocks

*passes out*
11:49 am
jmcnrick

oo gag Molls. . . I started drinking my Jack (and pretty much everything else) neat and worked up to drinking most with some water or club soda
11:49 am
jmcnrick

*fans ru
11:49 am
MollyL

Not to worry Ru. I refined my tastes years ago. Black coffee and straight liquor.
11:50 am
cybernan

need a cap on dentist fees too -- just had a new crown and one tiny filling --- $1800 and that was after the $260 for the cleaning and check up to begin with.
11:50 am
MollyL

Dental costs are ridiculous.
11:51 am
jmcnrick

I only started drinking coffee after I tried is black. . .
11:51 am
rururocks

we need a cap on property taxes here
11:51 am
gingentle

my new implant is costing 3 grand.
11:51 am
gingentle

and my latest dental insurance is utter shite!
11:51 am
cybernan

hope at least part of that is covered by insurance. The most we can get on the major stuff is 50%
11:52 am
MollyL

Dental insurance is a joke. It pays for very little.

it may or may not cover half of the extraction, but covers zero of the implant and the bone graft
11:52 am

I don't have dental insurance to speak of
11:53 am

I agree with Molly, it's super expensive and they don't cover shit

Do you have any that you can't speak of?

my teeth were majorly saved by the Communist plot of putting fluoride in the water of Houston in the '50s

that's what the poles are for at JM's house
11:55 am
hurshy

i have my state's Medicaid, currently, and it covered the extraction and a pop-in denture tooth, but would not have covered root canal/crown, or implant. however i can still get the implant if i get good insurance at some time within 5 years after the extraction
11:57 am
cybernan

same here jmc - flouride was added to our water in 1953. Don't know why they stopped using it about 15 years ago.
11:57 am
cybernan

I guess so the dentist could charge extra for painting it on your teeth!
11:59 am
hurshy

i think it's because they found that while good for the teeth, in young children, the INGESTION of too much fluoride can cause brain damage. so if it's in the water instead of just in toothpaste, that's a concern.
12:00 pm
mab

it's just wrong to yank a tooth. root canal and crown should be standard.
12:00 pm
mab

i remember when dentists would do anything else not to have to pull a tooth.
12:01 pm
cybernan

*!*~*!* hagd everyone - stay safe :)

i hope to god I never have another root canal.. ugh
12:01 pm
Shirlockc

i did invisilgns (cause WFH, who will see my teeth?) and was an idiot because of the 2 dental insurance we have, only one covers orthodontics (50%) and guess which insurance i had? and didn't realize i could have switched from?
12:01 pm
hurshy

hey at least the anesthesia's still covered. in some poor countries, it isn't.
12:02 pm
cybernan

when I had my orthodontics done 15 years ago now -insurance only covered $2000 of a $6000 bill.
12:03 pm
hokie carla

I did invisalign about 15 years ago. I definitely had to pay a lot of it, I think 60%.
12:04 pm
hurshy

it's funny this is what people were chatting about cause i just saw this riddle: lose me once and i come back stronger; lose me twice and i leave forever
12:05 pm
mab

i really should establish emergency fund for the teeth. I already have a crown that popped out (they just glued it back in).
12:07 pm
mab

but i really really want to do some living room redecorating. hmm. which is more important...
12:08 pm
hokie carla

luckily my dentist gave me a discount when I had to have a root canal about 3 years ago.
12:08 pm
hokie carla

still cost a lot though!
12:11 pm
mab

why does the us have to be so backward. it's wonderful to have a sympathetic dentist, and unusual, but really.
12:13 pm
hokie carla

I have been going to this dentist since 1996. he says we are his longest running patients.
12:16 pm
MollyL

I went to the same dentist all my life from when I was five to when I was over 50. Father and son. Then the son had to retire early and I have not found a suitable replacement since.
12:17 pm

Who is digging in your yard?
12:41 pm
hokie carla

not sure how much digging will be done - google laid fiber a couple of months ago and I have an appt to get it installed this coming Mon, so I assume it's related to that. I think they have to do something from the house to the street.

One of the funniest typos I have ever seen. The utility marking company around here is called Miss Utility, as in "miss the utility when you excavate". Someone changed it to Ms. Utility.

Fresh chicken. Frozen chicken was only available at Aldi. The other local grocery hasn't had frozen chicken products for weeks.
1:06 pm
BzznBea

The juice aisle was noticably empty. The soup and broth aisle was also looking lean, but that could be that it is cold here.

I had an odd one last week when I was on a trip. The restaurant didn't have any tea bags (except sleepytime). The adjoining hotel had tea bags in the rooms. So I brought a tea bag from the room into the restaurant.

1:47 pm
hurshy

it's not so much that i think people would know where Oedipus is from, so much as that i think people would know it's in Greece and if they are thinking Greek cities that start with th, based on the letters we're seeing in the grid, then hopefully it would spring to mind
1:48 pm
hurshy

because that is the sort of way things happen, in my head, at least
1:49 pm
lynxxx

I am bemused that anyone would believe that all words in Babble are 'common knowledge'
1:50 pm
hurshy

well nobody would - she just meant, Oedipus' city isn't, and therefore, my clue would be unhelpful
1:51 pm
hurshy

hence my explaining why i thought it would be helpful despite not being common knowledge (i didn't know it, i was like, who was from there again? so i googled it to find out in order to give the clue)
1:58 pm
Bugsaw

I knew where Oedipus came from. All clues are good clues because somebody somewhere will get it. Thanks
1:58 pm

i knew it somehow. either x word puzzle or psych or classics. i kind of think the last because practically my whole first year in college all the classes i wanted were full and classics were the only ones left.
