1:24 am
Blaze

flosey.... it was really horrible at first when I found out in 1993,.,, as I am O neg and had been a great donor too... part of the cycle so to speak. I live with it and have kept reasonably well... even did a year of treatments.. and now looking forward to by big cheque from the Fedral government.... will not hold my breath though
1:24 am
Nef

my house is NOT organized; both kids have moved out and in and out a few times and they left stuff each time
1:24 am
Nef

why a check from the governemnt?
1:25 am
Blaze

Class action suit against them for letting it happen... the provincial government and the red cross have settled and the feds too but the cheques won't be issued for a while....
1:26 am
Nef

they weren't screening well enough or what?
1:26 am
Blaze

somewhere between a few hundred and a few thousand... not near as much as the 3000.00 a month I paid for one year for treatments
1:27 am
Nef

plasmaapherisis?
1:27 am
Blaze

there was a certain time frame that most country's were not screening properly... but the .98 extra was too much for them to okay...
1:27 am
Blaze

Nef what is that word?
1:29 am
Nef

spelt wrong (of course) plasmapheresis is a type of treatment for cleaning toxins out of the blood. But it probably isn't used for Hep C
1:30 am
Blaze

the drugs was a combo called pegatron... it was almost like a chemo treatment... like having flu for a year.
1:30 am
Nef

I was trying to think of what type of treatment you would have had that would cost so much 10 years ago and that popped into my head
1:31 am
Blaze

this was only three years ago....
1:32 am
Nef

okay; my hubby has M.S. and 1 of his meds costs $1400/ month (thank goodness he has health insurance

3:50 am
Jacula

Morning sherb. Thank goodness you've taken 'responsibility' for The Osmonds! *Thinks* Now who can I use? Depends on your definition of 'boy', I guess.... hmmm

Jacula

Boy bands, Pappou.

hi sherb!
3:59 am

Hi Franmag. Finally got into the site using my BabAnon version of my net name. Need to get a feel for the games now.
3:59 am
Jacula

(Quote-puzzler, I meant.)
4:00 am
FranMag

jac, i played for a week without reading the directions! once i read them, the games became much easier!!
4:00 am
Jacula

FranMag - your icon. *Big grin*
4:00 am
sherb

me too, Fran!! and they say it's men who don't read instructions...
4:00 am
FranMag

yes jac, i added my personal touch! :-)
4:01 am
scv

haha, fran :)
4:01 am
Jacula

Why DON'T men read instructions? It's always puzzled me.
4:01 am
FranMag

i read directions for electronic things, i guess i thought the games would be more intuitive.
4:02 am
sherb

they always know better...
4:02 am
Jacula

Oh, like they always know the way to places...
4:02 am
FranMag

almost everyone went old school with their "boy" bands. i think mine is the only one so far from the 90s!
4:03 am
FranMag

i helped an ex-boyfriend install a new water heater once.
4:03 am
scv

i wish i could join you. no 80;s either?
4:03 am
Jacula

Psst! Fran... it has to do with age, methinks.:)
4:03 am
PappouTed

fran, what's yours, with my headache I can't see it clearly
4:04 am
FranMag

if i hadn't been following along with the instructions he would have removed a very important heat activated valve!!!
4:04 am
sherb

well, I did think about pretending I was younger... Take That maybe... but decided to bare all...
4:04 am
Jacula

So, you saved the day Fran.:)
4:04 am
FranMag

pappou, it's the backstreet boys as cartoons on Arthur (PBS show)

4:06 am

Pappou - I had to trail round the country to evey Peter Andre concert in the 90s with my daughter!
4:06 am
Jacula

4:06 am

I'm sitting here in an ankle length skirt and two long sweaters...

4:07 am
sherb

OldRottenHat - are you a woman, or are you being ironic? ;)
4:07 am
Jacula

OldRottenHat - Naturally! *Polishes halo.*
4:08 am
Frances

Had to chicken out with the icon. Felt this covered a multitude of sins.
4:08 am
SueMagee

I think it was Nancy Astor who said that she'd married beneath herself - and then added that all women do.
4:08 am
FranMag

odds are 7 to 1 that ORH is a woman, so I think she is just stating the obvious.
4:09 am
sherb

Pappou - where in the States are you? ...your profile is quite minimal...
4:09 am
PappouTed

4:12 am
scv

haha, there's a wiki deifnition..
4:13 am
Jacula

4:13 am
Odin

It basically is high stakes slots. Many nickle machines require a max bet of 45 in order to win top pay off.
4:13 am
Jacula

scv - what is it?

4:14 am
scv

though thats what im familiar with
4:14 am
PappouTed

I was in vegas the last week of june
4:14 am
Odin

EVERY frickin' machine has bingo and you cannot win on a pay line if you do not have a bingo on the top game!
4:15 am
PappouTed

yup, that's the way it is in tampa, that's why I won't go
4:15 am
Odin

I go to Vegas 3 or 4 times a year but do to an acquistion going on I can't get time away. My Sis has a condo there.

4:29 am

8 letters, 70 points. so the tiles would add to 14? im not sure if thats correct, i'm pretty new myself.

misspips - SCORING
Each tile has a point value. To determine the score for a word, the point-value for the length of the word is multiplied by the total letter values for the word:

4-letter word = 1 x Points
5-letter word = 2 x Points
6-letter word = 3 x Points
7-letter word = 4 x Points
8-letter word = 5 x Points
9-letter word = 6 x Points

Example:
Word: BABBLE
Points: 3 x (3+1+3+3+1+1)
Total: 36 pts.

i did jac, very funny. i loved the very dry delivery of the first guy, and the disdain of the other host that was totally lost on the poor boys!!
6:09 am
Jacula

The 'dancing' was something else too, wasn't it?
6:10 am
Jacula

It's still shown on TV to embarrass them now. When Ronan Keating was on, Parkinson (I think it was), they showed it. He was writhing in horror.:)
6:10 am
FranMag

as the first guy says, you expect them to WOW us and then they start dancing and we're like...what is that??
6:10 am
Jacula

The crotch-clutching had me in hysterics.
6:11 am
FranMag

i guess the main thing about "boy bands" is they take themselves very seriously.
6:11 am

That seemed to be a 'dancing' thing from 80s onwards for lads - point, clutch, squeak, point, clutch, squeak...

Is that rhetorical, jera ? :)
7:34 am

Probably, LOL... unless someone knows the rhyme or reason of Enable...

Because Enable has disabled it! That's Babble, Jera.

7:58 am
periwinkle

thank you Une, will look for it
7:59 am
Jacula

wa6/36 through to the 2nd wa7/52 are all to do with variant spellings of an old Scandanavian coarse woollen cloth.
7:59 am

Jacula, that clue really did not help me, but thanks anyway

But boys will be boys eh

Hursh - I shall go and look.

Jacula

Ooh, millions of pics. I'll look properly later. Thanks, Hursh!
8:21 am

yeah i don't know if he put them all up or left out some that were very similar to other shots, but in total there were 800 something.

8:25 am
Krista

Morning ladies (and gentlemen?)! How is the grid? I have a rare 10 min. before work. Of course, I have all day AT work. :)
8:25 am
Jera

It's boy band day... but we are using the term "boy" quite loosely & I'm protesting...
8:25 am
Jera

Greetings, Krista!
8:25 am
Jacula

Hi Krista. Duran Duran, eh?
8:26 am
Jera

That's who I would have picked Krista! Love 'em!
8:26 am
Krista

yeah, lame, I know
8:26 am
Krista

I still like their music, Jera! It wasn't all about the looks for me. ;)
8:27 am
Jera

Same here, Krista... I still belt out Hungry like the Wolf when it comes on the radio!
8:27 am
Krista

Jacula..I remember the Bay City Rollers. My first impression of them was what funny names they had! (funny to a little American kid)
8:28 am
abe79

great choice, Krista!
8:28 am
Jacula

Krista - I wasn't a Bay City Rollers fan.
8:29 am
Krista

Just read your profile, Jera. I'm a JR leader, too. Thanks, Abe! I was already 'old' when NKOTB was popular. :(
8:29 am
Krista

Well, their pic is good for a laugh, Jacula!
8:30 am
Frances

Hurshy great pics. I can only see 20. Don't know if there should be more.
8:31 am
Jacula

I have fireworks!:)
8:31 am
Jera

I never really got into NKOTB... I was a bit too old & my daughter was a bit too young...
8:31 am
Jera

Huzzah for Jacula!! *throws confetti*
8:31 am
Jera

Do you have a daughter in Scouts, krista, or are a leader just for fun?
8:31 am
Krista

Yay Jacula!!! And here I am just starting.
8:32 am
abe79

they weren't much to look at (in retrospect). Duran Duran has more longevity as an actual band!
8:32 am
abe79

yay Jacula!
8:32 am
Jacula

*Jac checks she's not wearing a white meringue dress. Okay, Jera. Thanks. Spits out bits of coloured paper.*
8:32 am
Krista

Daughter, age 10.5. We have a very small troop (5 girls). We do have a lot of fun.
8:32 am
Jera

Don't worry Jacs, it's biodegradeable
8:33 am
Krista

The way they are changing the councils around, we may end up in the same one!
8:33 am
Jera

Wow, Krista, we have a lot in common... we just got our 5th Girl & my daughter turned 10 in April... the tweens have set in! *cringes in fear*

Got lots to do (including shaping up that travelog of mine!). BBL to chat and clue.
8:34 am

I never thought they were attractive Abe, but I wasn't of that age, so thought it was just me!
8:34 am
Krista

Yes, we are in Shawnee.
8:34 am
Krista

Bye Jac!!
8:34 am
Jera

No quoll, ether, sean!!! I'm protesting with my icon!!
8:35 am
Krista

seano..someone else had the same icon last night - thought that was unusual
8:35 am
Jera

Wow, Krista... I used to live near Winchester... we are in Nation's Cap now, but we still go "back home" to visit alot. Did you go to the New Year's thing in Winchester this past weekend?
8:35 am
abe79

ah, you don't like rat- tail hairstyles Krista? COME ON...lol
8:36 am
Jacula

seano - you can extend Cilla's goodbye for a ta6/21. (Think fishy Greek dip.)
8:36 am
Krista

LOL! I know, I"m a loser, Abe.
8:36 am
Jacula

Really going for now. Byeee.
8:36 am
abe79

LOL Krista, you picked Duran Duran, I'M a loser :) bye Jacula
8:37 am
Krista

No, I didn't. I admit I am not into the admin stuff as much as I should be. I just read more of your profile. Here's another commonality - my daughter has PDD-NOS (on autism spectrum).
8:38 am
Krista

I think there will be many more NKOTB icons than DD, though.
8:38 am
seano216k

i am trying with your clue jacula...no luck so far!
8:38 am
abe79

seano, are you stuck on the 8?
8:39 am
Jera

I'm getting more into the admin stuff with Shawnee (we have dual mebership) cuz they NEED IT!! Yikes. They love me at the office. I'm always planning stuff.
8:40 am
Jera

Ye gods... I forgot today is my morning to bike!! Back in half an hour...

Sean ta6/21 - Cilla saying goodbye to her Mum. Try that.
8:40 am
verna

Any hints please last cl6,30
8:40 am
Jacula

I'm gone!
8:41 am
Krista

yep, Shawnee is a disaster. that's part of the reason we just do our own thing and stay out of the "politics!"
8:41 am
Krista

Off to work for me. Heigh ho, heigh ho.
8:43 am
Krista

useless Babble word: Atari
8:46 am
Jacula

verna - last cl6/30 = A cotton, silk, or rayon fabric with a raised woven pattern and a puckered or quilted look. (From the French for 'blister'.)
8:47 am
Jacula

(Sounds like what a superhero, a nurse or a highwayman might wear around their shoulders.)
8:48 am

they may not be from scratch, but they ARE homemade!
hehe
9:00 am
ch1212

that's okay -- I'm having my homemade Mexican pie for breakfast, and the cornbread topping is definitely not from scratch! :)
9:00 am
EvaNadine

ooh, yummy!!
9:01 am
ch1212

Here (passes evanadine a plate) -- see what you think
9:02 am
ch1212

I don't cook much but this is one of my favorite recipes
9:02 am
EvaNadine

my roommates made enchiladas yesterday, so im definitely in a mexican mood!
9:02 am
abe79

what is in mexican pie ch?
9:03 am
ch1212

This has lean shredded beef, cream style corn, black olives, chopped onions, chili seasoning, green chilies, diced tomatoes with garlic, shredded cheddar cheese, and topped with corn bread topping that is made with mozerella cheese melted into it.
9:04 am
ch1212

The corn bread topping is the 'pie crust'
9:04 am
ch1212

But the real trick to it is to make it a day or two ahead of time, because the longer it sits in the fridge, the better it is on reheating! No kidding!
9:05 am
EvaNadine

oh yeah...gotta let all those flavors blend together...
mmmmmm............onions, chilies, and peppers.............
9:06 am
abe79

that sounds delicious! cornbread is one of my favorite foods
9:06 am
flosey

sounds great ch, never heard of it
9:07 am
EvaNadine

phantom word: tomato
9:07 am
ch1212

brown the beef and onions first, then drain the fat, then add in the other ingredients and simmer for 25 minutes. Then pour mix into pie pan or other baking dish, top with cornbread mix (add mozerella into mix) and bake at 400 for around 20-25 degrees. Easy peasy and delicious!
9:08 am
ch1212

Add your chili seasoning to taste -- some people like more to make it 'hotter' --- the play of flavors between the sweetness of the corn, the heat of the chilies, the coolness of the cheese is great
9:10 am
EvaNadine

any hints for the 8?
(and if its related to a 7, i dont have that yet either...hehe)
9:11 am

I don't have either, evanadine - sorry

I'm upping my biking time every week... Mondays are the hardest... I'm up to 25 minutes...
9:17 am
EvaNadine

anyone here ever read Fark.com ?
9:17 am
ch1212

it's a word describing unscrambling words, and making two words in one by combining letters inside a different word.

Haven't read Fark.com -- what is it?
9:18 am
Jera

Jera I'm deeply impressed --- you have discipline!

eva I'll check it out - sounds fun
9:19 am
Jera

Thanks, ch1212... that's very encouraging...
9:19 am
EvaNadine

my ex has hit photo posted as one of their photoshops for today...
:/
9:19 am
Jera

Okay, so I have a question... after I work up to 30 minutes 3x's a week... the next week should I do 15 minutes every day? I
9:20 am
ch1212

LOL Jera -- nice try!
9:20 am
Jera

d like to get to 30 minutes daily... or should it not be so drastic a shift down?
9:20 am
abe79

i t hink 30 min, 3 x a week is better b/c you give yourself a day of rest every other day.
9:21 am
EvaNadine

yeah, i dont think youre supposed to cut back the time...if anything, add a day in or something...
9:21 am
ch1212

Have you heard about that exercise machine that won an award for most innovative invention? People work out on it for FOUR MINUTES a day, and it's the equivalent of 45 minutes aerobic workout. Unfortunatley, the machine costs over $14,000.
9:21 am
Jera

I'm wondering what the next increase should be though...
9:21 am
abe79

and i've heard it's better to keep your heartrate up for at least 30 minutes (i'm an exercise n4/5)
9:21 am
abe79

four minutes a day!
9:21 am
Jera

ch1212, if I had $14,000 available for workout stuff, I'd check myself into a clinic...
9:22 am
EvaNadine

ch -- is that the one where you stand on it + it vibrates?
9:22 am
Jera

I read recently that 30 minutes 5x'z a week is the healthy aerobic level...
9:22 am
ch1212

:D Jera... It's true, abe -- I was reading about it our latest issue of "Scientic American". Apparently it's been around since the early 90's.
9:23 am
Jera

That is one SCARY mental image, evanadine, LOL
9:23 am
abe79

i've found that 4-5 days is a nice goal b/c it gives you a chance to rest your muscles. do you bike outdoors or indoors Jera?
9:23 am
ch1212

No, evanadine -- this looks like a regular type of exercise machine, part bike, part pulleys, etc. It's the design that is supposed to be innovative.
9:24 am
Jera

Two things have gotten me hyped up... an exercise buddy & keeping track of things on mycaloriecounter.com
9:24 am
abe79

i wish i had 14,000 to spend on exercise!

i thought I had seen Whitewitch on here before; that confused me, too.
12:38 pm

whitewitch has been regular, but doesn't seem to know German as well as I would have expected if she were from Germany... still, she has not caused problems here.
