5:24 am
jaianniah

Eva, our country is so big that the sun literally comes up an hour latyer in Texas from the East Coast- thus the time difference- it is only 3 am in L,A. right now....
5:24 am
jaianniah

sorry about all the typos....
5:25 am
jaianniah

Eva?
5:25 am
Buttonman

Eva, as to the it, there used to be an annual bonfire on campus before the Texas University/A&M University football game. The bonfire was made with huge logs and they were stacked extremely high..one year while the students were preparing it, the structure fell, killing a number of students, 12 I think. And, I really am going, Bye
5:26 am

Has there been a clue recently on the th 8 abd 9 plez?
5:27 am
Buttonman

Jaianniah, I lived in San Diego for 25 years!
5:28 am
jaianniah

The thing on the car that makes it go faster is the nine- one of the 8's is the root word of the nine....
5:29 am
Eva

sorry-still half asleep and getting east and west mixed up, duh! I kept thinking-"But Vermont is as far East as it gets...: I do normally know that it is earlier in the west than here. And thanks for the explanation Button. I do now remember the tragedy.
5:29 am
jaianniah

It is also a slang term meaning "to strangle" jokingly
5:31 am
Merk

Thanks as always, Jaianniah. You give great clues.
5:31 am
jaianniah

Buttonman, sorry, but I live near you.....
5:32 am
Eva

yes, thanks jaianniah!
5:32 am
jaianniah

YW< Merk! and TY!
5:32 am
Buttonman

JJaianniah, what area of Texas!
5:33 am
jaianniah

no, I live on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi- near being relative in this case......
5:34 am
Buttonman

My daddy was from Bogue Chitto.
5:34 am
Dianne

my sister lives in the middle of the state of Mississippi.
5:35 am
jaianniah

Never heard of it....where is it?
5:35 am
Buttonman

Lincoln County near Brookhaven!
5:35 am
Eva

Bogue Chitto. What a wonderful name! How do you pronounce it?
5:35 am
jaianniah

OH!
5:37 am
Buttonman

Bobba chitta, it is an Native American name
5:37 am
jaianniah

We have a lot of French names in Mississippi....But they get Cajunized and otherwise twisted around- a town near me named Gautier is pronounced "Go-shay"
5:37 am
Buttonman

Correction, Bogue Chitto is pronounced like
5:38 am
Buttonman

Bogga Chitta
5:38 am
jaianniah

Also Native American, ty Buttonman!
5:38 am
Eva

Vermont is very funny that way. The larger town my village is part of is Calais. Which anywhere else in the world would be pronounced Calay. But here it is Calass.
5:39 am
jaianniah

That's exactly what happens here!
5:39 am
Buttonman

REALLY NOW, GOODNIGHT!
5:40 am
jaianniah

LOL Goodnight, Buttonman!
5:40 am
Eva

even odder because we are only 2 hours froom MOntreal and there are plenty of French-canadiens here, so one would think we would use the French pronounciation.
5:40 am
Eva

night button!
5:41 am
jaianniah

Somehere- half our town is French, but they mutilate the French words beyond recognition....a personal remark not meant to disparage anyone!
5:42 am
jaianniah

That's Same here
5:43 am
Eva

The first time I drove to Vermont and was trying to get to Barre I, of course, pronounced it "bar" and gave all the locals their fill of "flatlander" humor for the day. Flatlanders being those from Massachusetts or, I suppose, anywhere else but Vermont.
5:43 am
jaianniah

They laughed at me when I came down here and said Gautier "GO- tee- ay"
5:45 am
jaianniah

But the truth is that there is Cajun and Indian influence on the names.....
5:45 am
Eva

Have to decide whether to go swimming this morning or not. It is very hot out, but the water is still chily from all the rain we've had. I can remember, but barely, when I was a kid and never minded the cold water. Now I've become chicken!
5:46 am
jaianniah

OMG, swim! Swim when you can! There are so many months when you cannot!
5:47 am
cliffopa

*jumping in to pronunciation conversation* even the natives of my area can't pronounce their own town's names correctly. there is a town called 'gilmanton' but many say gil-ming-ton. it is also common to add an 'r' where there isn't one. morning!
5:48 am
jaianniah

That's a handsome Airman? you have there, Cliffopa!
5:49 am
cliffopa

that is newly minted 2nd lieutenant Clifford. thank you, jaianniah.
5:49 am
Eva

Good morning Cliff. That''s a very handsome young man you have there!
5:50 am
Eva

Simulaneous admiration cliff! lol
5:50 am
Eva

and have I mentioned how much I hate deerflies?
5:51 am
cliffopa

it was a surprise to see him in person for the first time with the uniform on. his whole demeanor was different. more confident.
5:51 am
cliffopa

deerflies = evil
5:52 am
Eva

Merp ate one the other day and I wanted to give him a medal
5:52 am
Eva

It must be so odd to see the person you diapered in a uniform.
5:52 am
cliffopa

my chow chow eats any/all kinds of insects. even bees.
5:53 am
jaianniah

Cliffopa, Clifford is gorgeous! I also have a newly-minted Airman 1st class nephew- graduated from Lackland a week ago....
5:53 am
cliffopa

i'm still having difficulty seeing my son as a 26 year old. how could that be when i still see myself as a 30 yr old. denial? yep.
5:53 am
Eva

doesn't s/he get stung? Merp gives bees wawide berth and also, much to my dismay, will not eat spiders. yes, I know, I know that spiders are benevolent, but I'm phobic.
5:54 am
jaianniah

Me, too- I am hitting the big one this fall, but feel 18.....
5:55 am
cliffopa

tuckerman (chow chow) often gets sick after eating bees - and ants. but he keeps doing it. the vet said as long as he does'nt ingest too many at the same time he shouldn't have a reaction.
5:55 am
Eva

It still feels strange tome when I visit my "little" brother when he is at work in the hospital, and see this 6'3" doctor striding around . How did that happen? And I feel much older when I realize that he is 51, than when I realize that I am 56.
5:55 am
Eva

jaia....which one is the big one? (-:
5:55 am
jaianniah

5-0-!!!!!
5:56 am
cliffopa

eva, my son hates spiders and was told yesterday to watch out if it ever rains at his base (edwards, california desert) because the big ones congregate on porches and walkways.
5:56 am
Eva

Oh-that one-no longer seems that big to me. Funny how one's definition of "old" keeps getting pushed further over the line as one advances.
5:57 am
Eva

YUCK!
5:57 am
jaianniah

That;s very true- and Cliffopa, remind me NEVER to go to EAFB!!!!
5:58 am
cliffopa

i don't especially like insects, but since my husband is allergic to bees, etc i end up removing them from the home.
5:58 am
cliffopa

jaianniah, the good thing at EAFB is that it almost never rains.
5:59 am
jaianniah

I would miss the rain....As long as it wasn't from a hurricane, that is.....
5:59 am
Eva

when I volunteered at the zoo some years ago one of my jobs was misting the tarantula tank. Myboss reassured me that the spiders didn't like getting wet so would move to the back of the tank, but I was so nervous that I accidentally sprayed in back of the spiders who, of course, charged forwards. Next thing I knew I was in the other room and the water bottle was on the floor. Never made that mistake again. Also had to pick up rocks and branches to count the African hissing cockroachs every morning. I mean really, as if the non=hissing ones weren't bad enough!
6:00 am
jaianniah

OMG, Eva!
6:00 am
cliffopa

what an interesting assignment.
6:01 am
cliffopa

i've never seen a real live cockroach - nevermind a hissing one!
6:01 am
jaianniah

And I am NOT finishing this puzzle.....this conversation is TOO interesting!
6:01 am
Eva

Don't mind reptiles at all, like snakes a lot, and rodents are fine. But spiders? I grew up in New York City which is cockroach central. You haven't missed anything.
6:02 am
Eva

People keep the hissing ones as pets. I kid you not.
6:02 am
jaianniah

Yuk!
6:03 am
cliffopa

my older brother used to put (harmless) snakes down the back of my clothing when we were kids. frogs and toads too. i don't mind them - didn't have much of a choice about it tho!
6:03 am
Eva

jaian-you have some pretty big bugs down there, don't you-palmettos,etc.?
6:03 am
Eva

That's what brothers are for isn't it?
6:04 am
jaianniah

I hope I never SEE the big bugs- they hide pretty well.....
6:04 am
Eva

Okay-getting ready for swimming. See you later.
6:05 am
jaianniah

Bye- bye, don't get bit by a deerfly!
6:05 am
cliffopa

watch out for evil deerflies eva. have fun.
6:13 am
jaianniah

Don't miss the word that goes right down column five....
6:17 am
cliffopa

does your nephew know where he will be stationed jaianniah?
6:17 am
jaianniah

And I have F*I*R*E*W*O*R*K*S*!!!!
6:18 am
cliffopa

congrats on the fireworks!!!
6:18 am
jaianniah

Somewhere near Washington State at first, but he has to make it thru "indocrination" - a pretty rough time, physically.....
6:20 am
jaianniah

Does your son?
6:20 am
cliffopa

i hope he makes it thru okay. i really admire anyone entering any branch of the military.
6:21 am
jaianniah

I do too!
6:22 am
cliffopa

my son received an officers commission. he has a masters degree in mechanical engineering and will be working as a developmental engineer at the air force research laboratory.
6:23 am
jaianniah

K- OOL! Where? At Edward's?
6:23 am
cliffopa

yep.
6:24 am
jaianniah

Doubly kool!
6:26 am
cliffopa

since he will be working on space propulsion projects, we are now referring to him as the 'rocket scientist.' they will never believe this at my next high school reunion...i wasn't the best student in high school.
6:27 am
jaianniah

LOL! Genes are funny- I was supposed to be the most likely to succeed, but ended up a housewife with four kids and an A.S. degree!
6:28 am
cliffopa

anyone who raised/raises 4 children is a 'rocket scientist' to me.
6:29 am
jbp

jai, *I* think that's tremendously successful!!!
6:30 am
jaianniah

Ty- They all turned out pretty okay! All are in retail one one sort or another- my thrid oldest is a MLT, tho, but makes too much money at Cracker Barrel to quit....

i wouldve liked to have alooked more buiness-y, but at least i was wearing a dress!
7:34 am
Dorens

are you able to play at work, evanadine?
7:34 am

8:00 am

whereas getting a PhD is such an anticlimax cos you just sit down and discuss your thesis and then they just tell you you've passed adn you go off down the pub for the rest of the day to celebrate lol

Grandmother? Sorry - outta my league!

8:05 am

And each one just multiplies that joy. I have eight grandchildren now--ages 5 months to 9 years.
8:05 am
Munner

So far, not a friendly grid, at least not to me!
8:06 am
Euterpe

The grid hasn't been very friendly to me either, yet.
8:06 am

Oh, no! My brain is still exhausted from yesterday.

8:07 am

Cheers Kitty - i'm still seeing a kettle., lol. I don'r dare refresh or the log will stop and I will get 3 or 4 'unresponsive script' warnings... : s
8:09 am

anj, do you use firefox?
8:09 am
72 Temple Owl

any pt words?
8:10 am
Anj

Faether, yes. Latest version as far as I know...
8:10 am
CiociaJudy

Anj, I use Firefox at home and get those script warnings. What's up wth that?
8:10 am
KittyVane

No PT-words Owl
8:10 am

you need to do a twiddle to stop getting the script warnings
8:10 am

8:10 am
musicmom

Sorry for dropping out of the conversation everyone! I'm going to have to go to work for a while. Be back later to finish.
8:10 am
Anj

lol Feather...sorry.
Ciocia, I've changed my time out to 60 secs as well...
8:10 am
Munner

Ah, just found my daughter-in-law
8:10 am
featherbee

Apparently in Firefox 1.5, the time that a script can run before it is considered to be "unresponsive" is only 5 seconds. Babble relies heavily on a lot of scripts and 5 seconds isn't a whole lotta time. So if the chat log or a long word list takes long than 5 seconds to load for you, Firefox will throw up that annoying "unresponsive script" error dialog.
8:10 am
Munner

s name in the grid.
8:10 am
featherbee

To tell Firefox not to bother you anymore if a script takes longer than 5 seconds, type "about:config" (without quotes) into your address field in Firefox (i.e. where you would normally type "www.playbabble.com"), and then in the "filter" field type “dom.max” (without the quotes).
8:11 am
featherbee

Then double-click on the "dom.max_script_run_time" record that comes up, and change the the value from 5 to 60. 60 seconds should be more than enough time for Babble (and other sites) to load without Firefox complaining with the error message anymore.
8:11 am

oh dear, was the twilight lupine at it again? Hi all, btw - got to 55 and now I'm going to the list 'cause I'm in a hurry - wedding reception this evening!
8:11 am
featherbee

oh shoot, didn't see you say that! sorry
8:11 am
Atalante

or just type dom.max_script_run_time in the filter box so you don't have to scroll through
8:12 am
CiociaJudy

making notes on all of this. Will try it this evening. thx much.
8:12 am
CiociaJudy

hi, feather!
8:12 am

LOL...still get them, but I reckon it could be something to do with running iTunes in the background on an old muther hubbard board with only 512mb of Ram : )
8:13 am

welcome judy. lol anj!
8:13 am
Atalante

errrr possibly Anj!
8:14 am

thx atalante
8:14 am

8:17 am
M3

free music no download either cool huh
8:18 am
Anj

Ata, i'm worried that a new pc/chipset might insist on reformatting/repartioning any additional hard drives. I don't know enough about computers to be certain either way. I know I had to format, primary partition and name my new 80gb drive before my current set up would recognise it.
8:18 am
CiociaJudy

[feverishly making notes about all this computer stuff]

How many words today, guys?
8:18 am

Our work room is like a hot house in this weather, there's no way I can go there before the evening.

And I also recommend Pandora, it's much better than LastFM :)
8:18 am
Anj

M3, I use LastFM. It's more flexible than Pandora i've found...
8:18 am

Hi featherbee
8:21 am
CiociaJudy

bummer rumple. those herniated discs are very painful. Hope you can get relief.
8:21 am
Atalante

you should be ok ... though what you'd probably want to do is find a local computer guy and tell him the situation before getting a new pc and get him to install the second hard drive for you. would cost a few £ but worth it
8:21 am
M3

LOL, backing up is always a good idea. have fun,. its easy to backup. if you have more than one puta it would be easy!! hey good luck with that lol x
8:21 am

8:23 am

in theory, I think you could just switch the drive allocations, Anj, so that the two partitions stay on the then secondary hard drive. you'd end up with drive d and e or whatever
8:24 am
Anj

Ata, I have a friend who builds pcs for a living so it would just cost the oprice of a few points and a pie : )
I've got space for one more additional hard drive, but the mother board and chipset are archaic : s Not worth doing that now...
8:24 am

CiociaJudy

It's not an easy grid for me Dorens. But it's Friday. [doing the happy dance] How about you?
9:05 am
stidmama

oooh -- I just saw Anj's icon! very lovely!
9:05 am
CiociaJudy

9:06 am

That's okay, Judy.
9:08 am
stidmama

how's it going today Judy?
9:09 am
CiociaJudy

not too bad. Sun's out which is a good thing. Some of the areas around me had quite a bit of flooding. How's it going today for you stid?
9:09 am
stidmama

going to grab a list, brb
9:09 am
Atalante

yay orange stid flowers!
9:09 am

flooding? still? or again? or just the left-overs from the other week?
9:10 am

Dorens

one or the other, harp
9:10 am
CiociaJudy

not still. some again and lots of left overs from the other week. People are still trying to get back to normal. FEMA finally declared our county a disaster area.
9:11 am
Haz1558

It's a word used when giving alternatives, harpjane.

9:11 am
stidmama

well -- *FEMA* -- sounds like a bad word. They just don't seem to get it, do they?
9:12 am
stidmama

thanks Haz and Dorens, those clues helped me, too!
9:12 am

Judy - do you get to have some fabulous souvenier blue tarps, at least?

[quietly] fix, I was one of the lucky ones. No flooding. lol
9:14 am
featherbee

yeah, we're dealing with the same stuff judy. i'm near binghamton, ny
9:14 am
CiociaJudy

stid, my county was not on the original FEMA list. The legislators had to call them in to look around. Some of our towns were completely hit. grrrrr
9:14 am
stidmama

good morning feather.
9:14 am
featherbee

hi stid, dorens, fiz, et al
9:14 am
Dorens

hey, nice orangy feather there
9:14 am
CiociaJudy

feather, I have relatives in Hancock, NY. They shop in Binghamton all the time.
9:15 am
featherbee

oh, hancock was hit very badly. my husband was there a lot the past few weeks for national guard
9:15 am
CiociaJudy

OMG! We didn't hear anything from my aunt and uncle. They are "up" a little so maybe they were spared.
9:16 am
stidmama

I am so sorry for all the people who have been hit by disaster this year. Seems it's been everyone's "turn" recently.
9:16 am
stidmama

oh Judy -- maybe you should call them?
9:16 am
featherbee

i'd say give them a call judy
9:16 am
CiociaJudy

Yes. must check in.
9:16 am
TheFiz

We've gotten off easy in RI - some sewer floods and beach closings, but no major damage. My heart goes out to you all.
9:17 am
featherbee

doug (hubby) was doing what the guys called "water buffalo" duty...delivering water tanks to sites out there so people had water for their livestock and themsleves
9:17 am
stidmama

the problem with RI though is it's so small if something happens, it really does happen to everyone...
9:18 am
CiociaJudy

my aunt and uncle are right over the PA border. Your cross the bridge and go up a small hill and that's their street.
9:18 am
stidmama

feather -- glad you mentioned him. I know he's been home recently -- is he able to come home every night now?
9:18 am
featherbee

personally i'm ok, live on a hill away from any creeks or rivers, but many people i know have been affected
9:18 am
TheFiz

True - I learned the hard way that everyone is truly related by blowing off steam about someone in a restaurant - the server was their cousin....
9:18 am
featherbee

yep! they asked the guys who needed to be released from duty, and since doug's job is transferring to state this coming week, he needed to be there
9:18 am
CiociaJudy

glad to hear you're okay feather. But I know it's sad to see what other people have been through.
9:19 am
stidmama

well good -- I am glad he's home. I bet Daniel thinks it's wonderful!
9:19 am

My parents are in Western PA - they are looking forward to beachfront property when the ice caps finally melt. You can all go stay with them - they've got a big house and are generous with it.
9:19 am
stidmama

Judy -- go call *your* Ciocia! (then let us know what you learn)
9:19 am
featherbee

yep, he does!
9:20 am
stidmama

LOL Fiz! we are on the opposite side of the street from the "waterfront" properties... figure when their banks slide we'll have the "high rent" place!
9:21 am
featherbee

i can't go read the articles anymore, i want to cry everytime i see how much people have lost, and how insurance is NOT helping at all
9:21 am
stidmama

yes -- which reminds me, our insurance company canceled earthquake coverage... need to see if Tom found someone else to do it!
9:22 am
stidmama

brb need to do laundry now that everyone's awake.
9:22 am
featherbee

ok, back to wrestling with the grid
9:22 am
TheFiz

OMG, feather - just looked at some of the photos and things - my heart aches. Can we make donations somewhere to help?
9:23 am
featherbee

not sure....i think there's a link of how to help somewhere in there...let me see if i can find it. what i did the other day was went shopping to donate to CHOW. hang on...

Just found it feather - thanks. And if you hear that people need things, email me - thefiz@gmail.com. I love to rustle up in-kind donations.
9:26 am
featherbee

thanks fiz! it's very much appreciated. i know, i have several bags of clothes that i weeded out from my closets, just trying to figure out where to take them. i think i'm going to drop them off at a clothing center at a local church. even if they don't need them for flood victims, they'll go to good use.
9:26 am

those photos are so sad, featherbee
9:27 am

nite everyone!! sleepy time! see you later!
9:27 am

the very first photo in the earliest gallery is actually of my road, it got washed out in the beginning stages. i took those pics and sent them in early tuesday morning, wednesday is when all the waters started to rise in the rivers
9:27 am

I give all my old stuff to the local womens shelters - people who leave with the clothes on their backs and have to start over. But I'd be happy to send some stuff your way if it's needed.

9:38 am

flask, are you trying to use the clues?
9:39 am

good night mrp, see you later!
9:39 am

enable is the dictionary used in this game but i don't think you actually can use it
9:39 am

I just want to know how to find words for the grid....by using first 2 or 3 letters....
9:39 am
stidmama

later feather --
9:39 am
Ping

flask, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on lickety's babble clues - that will help you finish the grid
9:40 am

like I do with another dictionary!

9:40 am

yay angel!!!
9:40 am

YAY Angelsong!
9:40 am

it's easiest to open lickety's page in a new window so you can easily flip between babble and lickey
9:40 am

hooray for angelsong!!!!

I keep thinking about you and the house you're trying to buy -- any progress Angelsong?

ok thankyou to you all.....and well done Angel
9:41 am

Flast - You could try using a2z - Have a look at Angelsongs pages under Friends of Babble that has a bit all about alternate sites that I think you are talking abouttoo.

okay, well, I'll keep you in my thoughts (and keep asking occasionally)until your dream becomes reality.
9:46 am

Thanks, stid. I shouldn't be here, given my to-do list, though (as usual). ;)

9:47 am

oh well, Krista, what are to-do lists for, if not to ignore? LOL I also have so many things on my plate, but need to take it fairly easy today, so will babble as much as I can.
9:47 am
Krista

Hubby's 40th bday party tomorrow, so I can't ignore it too much. Are you ok, if I may ask?
9:48 am
Ping

mazel tov, krista!
9:49 am
stidmama

I am better than last night, that's for sure! a good night's sleep helped a lot. {and definitely do something nice for your husband -- mine spouse didn't even get me a card for my 40th last month!}
9:50 am
TheFiz

Oh, stid - Happy 40th Birthday!! Want me to sing again?
9:51 am

9:58 am

9:59 am
Krista

sorry for the delay; was changing my icon (sort of)..glad today is better for you, Stid. I've been there with the ""no card"" occasions, believe me! It doesn't happen anymore, though..I must have scared the poor man. Yes, I was being Miss Overly Sensitive last night. I came on two different times and no one would talk to me (sniff sniff, throwing pity party confetti). I was sunburnt and tired; I"m not usually such a baby.
9:59 am
Krista

sorry that was so long
9:59 am
stidmama

oh -- I meant to convey greetings from Mikey in Berlin -- had a nice email from him the other day and he said to say hello to everyone!
10:00 am

Today's phantom word is: Gerund
10:00 am
stidmama

that's okay Krista -- I'll refresh in a minute to see your icon. Are you feeling better today? sunburns always make me grumpy... sleep usually helps, though.
10:00 am
stidmama

hi Samantha!
10:00 am
SamanthaJoy

Good morning
10:01 am
stidmama

LOL -- Krista, I see what you mean! I take it this is the famous Chesapeake Bay orange crab?
10:01 am
Krista

yes, thanks, sleep did help, but I'm still crispy..i can't use cheap sunscreen! Tee hee - crabby is sunburned, too.
10:02 am
Ping

stid, my 40th was a drag - mom in chemo, bald, distraught - but she recovered and we had a big blowout for #41
10:02 am
stidmama

oh -- poor Krabby Krista! do you have aloe? that will help the skin feel less crispy...
10:03 am
stidmama

oh Ping -- so glad your mother recovered. What a difficult year that must have been. Assume she is still in remission?
10:04 am
mymuseisme

sorry to read about your mom too ping and glad to hear she's doing better
10:04 am
Krista

I have it on my list to buy today! I wasn't going to get anymore sunburns, you see, so I ran out. Sorry to hear that, Ping. Still no Munner the past few days?
10:04 am
stidmama

haven't seen Munner -- starting to get a little worried.
10:05 am
mymuseisme

Krista Solarcaine makes aloe extra gel that will help your skin feel smoother and cooler
10:06 am
stidmama

Krista, a friend who is an expert on burns also suggests "aquaphor" for rehydrating... my experience is that either that or aloe works pretty well.
10:06 am
stidmama

okay, my monkeys are on strike. AR 5 please?
10:07 am
mymuseisme

add a vowel to the space word
10:07 am

morning all. I'm here and babbling but also babysitting one of my 20 month old KM students while her mom goes to the doc. Munner was on earlier this morning.
10:07 am
Ping

she is still in remission, stid, but it was her third time so we try to appreciate each day - in the meantime, though, she's obstinate as ever!
10:07 am
musicmom

I probably won't be very consistent about chat since I'm chasing Emily around - there she goes.
10:07 am
stidmama

thanks muse! again... hi musicmom. thanks. Is she feeling any better?
10:08 am
parsec

Aquaphor was my bestest friend this one time when I fell asleep on a float in the pool.
10:08 am
Krista

Yes, I am worried, too. Is there anyone here who is in contact with her? I didn't know they still made Solarcaine! I've heard of aquaphor..thanks for the suggestions. I'm trying to figure out a way to go braless today - my back is the worst!
10:08 am
parsec

We still have an on-again, off-again relationship.
10:09 am
stidmama

oh parsec, how painful that must have been! I am a total wimp when it comes to burns. Fortunately, I haven't had a bad sunburn in more than 20 years... but I still remember how it felt.
10:09 am
Krista

i went snorkeling once and forgot to put sunscreen on my back - I can't express the pain...a "real" burn must be pure agony
10:09 am
parsec

Yeah, I don't take books out on the pool anymore. =)
10:10 am
stidmama

Krista -- for me, a soft T-shirt and a loose-fitting jacket conceals well enough when I can't wear a bra... I am pretty large in that region, but as long as I don't "bounce" no one seems to notice...
10:10 am
Doll414

I read somewhere that you should keep the aloe gel in the refrigerator - helps it work better
10:11 am
Krista

oh, just saw your post about Munner, musicmom. I don't know her well, but am concerned nonetheless.
10:11 am

anything with aloe vera - alor vera gloop straight from the plant works wonders

"realtor" has been added to the newest dictionaries, but that excludes Enable; why am I not surprised? (-:
1:58 pm

1:58 pm
shutterbug

realtor isnt even in this puzzle.
1:58 pm
Atalante

LOL it really wasn't meant to look like a chihuahua - it just happened! its a little fantasy creature that half-gargoyle half-bat thing with big teeth - from the book I'm reading at the moment!
1:58 pm
FranMag

thanks lola!
1:58 pm
LeslieAnn

argh, thanks lola
1:59 pm
LeslieAnn

psst... realtor is trademarked by the n'tl assn. of realtors
1:59 pm
LeslieAnn

so it's capitalized, so not taken (even if it was in the puzzle)
1:59 pm

Back again. Had to leave for a while. I have some catching up to do.
1:59 pm

I am pretty sure we've had realtor before and it was accepted.

LeslieAnn

nope, we've had this convo a few times

2:02 pm
Anj

Yo 'Nut : ) How you been??
2:02 pm
brandyjack

Well, I just fed it to my solver and it didn't print out realtor even though I made sure it was there...... Tood bad we couldn't get Lawyer's to trademark their profession too so we couldn't print it or refer to them in any way shape or form too..... Although realtor's haven't gone away yet either.....

Friedpenguin

That's a dead link. Leslie
2:09 pm
Friedpenguin

but thx anyway
2:09 pm
brandyjack

Fried, they aren't always in a stright or level line. Some of them are tied up like a gordian knot. The person who engages in sports, AT7/32, starts with one of the two 'A', does a slow counterclockwise spin before zigzagging to the bottom like a tilted pinball game.....
2:09 pm
LeslieAnn

you have to c&p the second line, also. or click on lickety's babble clues link below
2:09 pm
Vicuna

Fried, just go to "lickety's clues" link down below the grid.
2:09 pm
Aloyisius

just dawned on me... we need an "s" in this grid.
2:09 pm

you have to paste it in pieces fried, it's not a dead link, trust me.
