I keep looking for non-existent compounds in this grid
5:23 am
ItalianGreyhound

the OV 4 and "full orb" 4 are likely compound bases - nothing so far
5:32 am
Mercy

onsa
5:37 am
ItalianGreyhound

is that Italian
6:16 am
Scrabbler

Buon giorno.
6:19 am
ItalianGreyhound

now thats Italian
6:20 am
ItalianGreyhound

HI, Scrabs - watching a raccoon on the security cam - are they pests or cute?
6:21 am
Scrabbler

Both. They have been knocking down my bird feeders all summer.
6:22 am
ItalianGreyhound

squirrels try to get into my feeder - this raccoon is too fat to get off the ground
6:25 am
Scrabbler

I have grey and red squirrels that are acrobats and rascals.
6:26 am
Scrabbler

Just when I think I have a set-up that is safe, the critters outfox me.
6:26 am
ItalianGreyhound

my bird feeder hangs by a cord from the upper deck; squirrel shimmys down the rope to get at it
6:27 am
Scrabbler

Yes! They are so clever and they persevere. When the feeders are empty they come to my front porch and look in the window at me.
6:28 am
ItalianGreyhound

omg, me too! I have a close up photo of one peering in at me
6:29 am
Scrabbler

They jump on the back of my chair on the front porch and stare at me. If I sit out front they get close and stare.
6:30 am
ItalianGreyhound

must admit, my squirrel takes a peanut by hand
6:30 am
sukee

I have a bunny that visits my patio once in a while
6:30 am
Scrabbler

I bet my squirrels and chipmunks would do that. They hop on my feet when I sit out there.
6:31 am
Scrabbler

How sweet, sukee.
6:31 am
ItalianGreyhound

have everything but rabbits here - weird
6:32 am
sukee

The cats love to watch it
6:32 am
sukee

We also get squirrels and chipmunks, never seen a raccoon
6:33 am
ItalianGreyhound

I have a bald eagle but no chipmunks - connection?
6:34 am
Scrabbler

This summer I have adult and juvenile raccoons. One summer I had 3 baby raccoons that would venture out with their mother. So cute!
6:34 am
Scrabbler

Yikes, IG.
6:35 am
ItalianGreyhound

baldy sticks to fish, as far as I can tell; now the redtails go for everything
6:35 am
sukee

Don't remember if I told you the saga of my tV Lost by Purolator, reordered with Best Buy, lost order, re-reordered it with Best Buy. It's finally here and mounted on the wall. It was such a saga.
6:37 am
Scrabbler

I have foxes that run through here and grab chipmunks.
6:37 am
Scrabbler

What a hassle, sukee.
6:38 am
sukee

It was, but, a month later and we are all good. Oh, and the best part? The day after I got the TV, I got a notice that Purolator had found the original tv
6:40 am
Scrabbler

A little late.
6:41 am
sukee

It got returned to Best Buy
6:42 am
sukee

Rethinking doing business with Best Buy, it took them a week to realize they couldn't find the order I placed.
6:42 am
sukee

This was with customer service and IT looking for it.
6:44 am
sukee

But, the Geek Squad helped get some of my faith in the company back. They were great. Oh well, won't need a new TV for a while
6:44 am
sukee

I really, really want to type nation...
6:45 am
Scrabbler

I ordered backpacking meals (dehydrated food in pouches) on June 11. Two weeks ago, after no delivery yet, I emailed the company and was told there were problems with supply chain.
6:46 am
sukee

Nice of them to let you know.
6:46 am
Scrabbler

Yesterday, after still no delivery, I emailed the company and they said the package was just going out. I will never order from this company again.
6:46 am
sukee

It wouldn't have taken them much to let you know
6:47 am
sukee

Next time I want electronics I'm going to order from The Source.
6:49 am
Scrabbler

Customer service matters.
6:50 am
sukee

bbr, groceries are on the way
6:51 am
mael

alas, hoover is not accepted
6:53 am
Scrabbler

I guess it is still a proper name.
6:57 am
windingwake

Phantom panache
7:01 am
Scrabbler

I tried it. You're right.
7:13 am
Scrabbler

I passed halfway. See you tomorrow.
7:17 am
hurshy

phantom: room
7:19 am
windingwake

Yes! Short phantoms don’t usually get me that bad, but I’ve tried it more than once.
7:21 am
hurshy

yeah it is unusual that way
7:36 am
hurshy

oh you were very close with your phantom!
8:10 am
MollyL

Guess that proper noun...Jon's partner on CHIPS
8:15 am
penquis

Ponch?....that's a total guess....
8:16 am
MollyL

And it's totally right. Pen wins a ride along on a motorcycle with the California Highway Patrol.
8:16 am
penquis

yippee!
8:16 am
penquis

it's amazing what useless information lies in the corners of one's brain...
8:18 am
MollyL

There is so much about the brain that they still don't know. Who could guess what lurks in there?
8:18 am
hokie carla

darn, missed one I knew
8:18 am
penquis

a character from Criminal Minds is in the grid, too....but it's also a real word so I can't do a NTPN....
8:18 am
hokie carla

Frank Poncharello
8:18 am
hokie carla

oh, thanks pen, always forget that
8:19 am
hokie carla

I always miss his other tv show partner, dharma, too
8:20 am
MollyL

ONE you knew? You chime in on almost all of them. Especially anything to do with the 80's or 90's.
8:20 am
hokie carla

I don't know many of the super old ones 😜
8:22 am
penquis

i am into super old... ;oP
8:22 am
MollyL

Well then, be glad you weren't here the other day when they discussed 1947 ad slogans for grocery stores. πŸ™„
8:26 am
hokie carla

I don't think my mom would even know that
8:26 am
hokie carla

they didn't even get electricity until 1948
8:29 am
MollyL

1947 ad slogans...speaking of obscure crap stored in the brain...
8:33 am
MollyL

Ads from the 40's are hysterical. One for Pyrex shouts "Successful Marriages Start In The Kitchen!"
8:34 am
penquis

ewww....
8:37 am
MollyL

Oh, you want "ew"? Lysol used to advertise it was good for (I am not kidding) feminine hygiene. Women actually used to douche with it. With terrible results of course.
8:37 am
penquis

EWWW.....
8:38 am
hokie carla

yeah, that sounds like a horrible idea
8:39 am
hokie carla

well, 3 tiles without half
8:40 am
penquis

i have one of those....the i .....
8:41 am
MollyL

Guess that proper noun...Don Quixote's squire
8:41 am
penquis

Pancho...
8:41 am
hokie carla

I have 4 i's. mine are V, S, P
8:42 am
hokie carla

and bottom O, I guess I have 4
8:42 am
penquis

the bottom O has at least three normal words...
8:42 am
hurshy

V... a word that in physics means you've included both speed and direction
8:43 am
penquis

it's ve 6...
8:43 am
MollyL

Close Pen
8:44 am
hurshy

sancho (panza)
8:45 am
MollyL

Ding! Hurshy wins a lance with which to tilt at windmills.
8:45 am
penquis

ah...i was thinking of Pancho Villa...
8:45 am
hurshy

just what i've always wanted!
8:47 am
hokie carla

8:48 am
MollyL

and had to run outside and put the cans out
10:22 am

ah, I have monday pickup :)
10:22 am

Hi all. Clue for the sa8 please?

10:24 am
moolingwa

sounds like spanish saint followed by an abbreviated number
10:24 am
moolingwa

and thanks for the clue
10:25 am
hokie carla

we have recycling every other week and trash every week. yard waste just goes on the curb.
10:25 am
hokie carla

so 2 bins
10:25 am
moolingwa

compost will take a lot more than just yard waste, includes things like pizza boxes and other food waste
10:26 am
hokie carla

our new house is only trash
10:26 am
moolingwa

heh
10:27 am
hokie carla

after years of recycling it's hard to throw it away. but in case you don't know, it's hard for places to find someone to take recycling now. my mom's county stopped doing it too because they couldn't find anywhere to send it.

similar to your 5 you gave me earlier
10:37 am
penquis

is it ho 6/27?....i have that one...
10:37 am
hokie carla

yes
10:40 am
moolingwa

perhaps the 6 off the bottom h is one you're missing?
10:42 am
penquis

me?...i am missing an H from the top left...
10:43 am
moolingwa

oh, well perhaps a 5 then
10:43 am
moolingwa

or the 6 which is a plural
10:43 am
hokie carla

ho5/12 was surpirsingly hard for me to see
10:44 am
joym999

enable's choice of which Spanish words to include is just weird. Dinero, but not nino or nina?
10:45 am
hokie carla

I know
10:45 am
hokie carla

i did not try those today but usually do
10:45 am
hokie carla

I must be learning
10:45 am
moolingwa

well dinero has arguably been used in english a lot longer
10:45 am
joym999

lol
10:45 am
joym999

how so moo?
10:46 am
hokie carla

yeah, but there are a lot of foreign words included that aren't even really loan words, so it's really baffling
10:46 am
moolingwa

They used in pop culture a lot more, particularly TV and movies
10:47 am
moolingwa

the use of nina/nino in a broad sense is newer, certainly popularized by the increase of spanish and mexican themed pop culture in the last 20 years or so, which is after Enable was put together
10:47 am
joym999

as if the great Enablemaker just arbitrarily wrote down all the words they could remember.
10:47 am
joym999

but isn't that also true of dinero, moo?
10:47 am
moolingwa

Well no, it was based on the scrabble dictionary
10:47 am
moolingwa

which was based on the six collegiate dictionaries
10:47 am
hokie carla

but there are many, many french words that I've never even seen before that are included
10:47 am
moolingwa

From around 1998 or so
10:48 am
moolingwa

all those armor terms :)
10:48 am
moolingwa

part of the issue is the age of the dictionary
10:48 am
moolingwa

it hasn't evolved in about 15-20 years
10:49 am
moolingwa

By contrast the scrabble dictionary has had a number of updates since then
10:49 am
joym999

I don't remember ever hearing the word dinero used in the U.S. before 2000 or so, outside of my Spanish classes.
10:50 am
joym999

anecdotal, I know, but it just doesn't seem to me to be as common a word as nino/a
10:50 am
moolingwa

I know I was aware of it before I came to the US in 1995, and certainly not much spanish spoken in my part of the world :)
10:51 am
penquis

enable is fond of a lot of foreign money words...
10:51 am
penquis

and weapon words...and chemical and botanical words...

dr. Gwen, found lovely London Folio edition, 1980, Out of Africa, with nice lino-cuts throughout - Goodwill. Rosemary got it for xmas 1988 from D and M, and she seems never to have cracked it open.
11:41 pm
mab

Nice. Map on inside cover. And is in one of those cardboard sleeves. Just like new. Was so happy to find it.
11:42 pm
mab

too, too many stops and etc. Anyway, nice reading copy.
11:44 pm
mab

probably not worth much, but I love it and it cost 1.99.
11:50 pm
mab

it tells you what typeface and paper (sommerville cream wove paper), and who bound it, who printed it.
11:51 pm
mab

printed lithographically - don't know what that is, but sounds like lots of hand setting of type.
11:53 pm
mab

I'm talking to myself, aren't I. That's ok, frequently am.
11:55 pm
mab

oh, and the cloth binding: scholco brillianta, which, of course, I noticed instantly. good old scholco brillianta.
