1:07 am
GreyWoulf

Strange -- but I have no probs with Babble lagging at all, nor is Lickety mixed up for me -- and all I did was reload both pages when I came on earlier

working fine on this end too, dunno what to tell you
1:09 am

lickety isn't messed up for me really.. just the letters already placed in the word boxes dont match up with the clues. i suspect theyre the letters from yesterday, so i understand how people have yesterdays list there
1:09 am
scv

but nothing's checked. so no harm.
1:10 am

i just deleted 9 gigs of files that i was "holding" for my husband, i'm left with 3100+ or 8.9 days worth
1:10 am

1:10 am

it's partly me being a packrat, and partly the fact that campus internet in louisville is ridiculously fast
1:10 am

6:14 am
rolin

I am trying to let my mood be softened by those colours, lol. There is only one thing worse than DST: getting up early for aikido lessons and having to wait for the teacher to show up, who forgot about DST.

Scrabbler

TY, lynxx, but I just found ma8
6:27 am

Sorry, Scrabbler. Was doing a Kenny Rogers and checking what condition my condition was in ....
6:27 am

lol
6:27 am
Scrabbler

LOL--so how is your condition?
6:28 am
o-o

At the moment I am somewhat ambivalent
6:28 am
Scrabbler

About______?
6:29 am
sprite

if you managed to make up your mind that you are ambivalent, you might not be
6:29 am
Wolvie

nice icon today babble
6:30 am
Scrabbler

I found 1 ca8--is the other one related?
6:30 am
sprite

only in form, Scrabbler, and only a little.
6:30 am
o-o

Each day is an opportunity. Some days more than others are a test of resolve.
6:30 am
o-o

Thanks, Wolvie and good morning to you.
6:31 am
lynxxx

so true BR!
6:31 am
Wolvie

:-)
6:31 am
sprite

Scrabbler: one is a plural, one is a comparative
6:32 am
Scrabbler

Ah, the comparative--that's it
6:32 am
sprite

sorry about the confusion, I was looking at the Ca7s, not the 8s. :(
6:32 am
Scrabbler

Anybody seen Jacula lately??
6:32 am
sprite

no, was just thinking about her
6:32 am
Wolvie

noo - now that you mention it, I haven't

Good news, Atalante.
6:35 am
Wolvie

do the ca 8's build off of the ca 4/7?
6:35 am
Scrabbler

Think about the person behind home plate
6:35 am
lynxxx

in4.8 & 5.18 - anyone care to give definition of this silly one
6:35 am
sprite

they build from the ca5/16
6:35 am

6:36 am
Scrabbler

But, TY for the ca4,7 clue--I got a bunch from that
6:36 am
Wolvie

yep - quite a few there
6:37 am
Wolvie

7 at least. :-)
6:37 am
Scrabbler

So far this is the kind of grid that boosts my Babble Self-Esteem rating--I am sure to crash later
6:37 am
sprite

lynxxx: in + greeting = in5/18. Drop last letter for the 4.
6:38 am
lynxxx

TY Sprite - I had them, just wondering what they meant?
6:38 am
sprite

ah, sorry! Let's see if I can find out.
6:38 am
Scrabbler

Wolvie, I have 5 linked together--the ca4,7---I am looking for 2 more
6:38 am
Wolvie

don't for get more so, most, and the sometimes vowel
6:39 am
o-o

Now, Scrabbler, cut out the negative chatter. As one who is a healer, heal yourself from self-deprecation. Someone told me that; perhaps a doctor?
6:40 am
sprite

got the 5, lynxxx. The word is usually known in coalminers' jargon as an adverb of direction meaning "toward the coal face".

When used for above ground, it means "toward the house" or similar, for example, an "in5 field" is a field near the farmhouse. (yeah, right)
6:40 am
majmom

good morning all -does anyone have clue for bi 5/20?
6:40 am
Scrabbler

LOL, BR, but I excel at self-deprecation, in a humorous way. You are right, though! I finished yest's grid WITHOUT the list--with help from my Babble friends
6:40 am
Wolvie

very cool scrabbler - I love it when I don't need the list for the last few
6:40 am
sprite

yay Scrabbler! We will call you ScrabblerBabbler from now on ;)

6:42 am
Scrabbler

Wolvie--I need 1 more in the ca4,7 group
6:43 am
Wolvie

for that ca, I have ca 4/7, ca 5/16 x2, ca 6/27 x2, ca 5/20, and ca 7/40
6:43 am
Scrabbler

Yeah, like you know which one I need...LOL
6:43 am
Wolvie

6:44 am
Scrabbler

ca7,40 is missing!
6:44 am
Wolvie

Scrabbler

Oh, the superlative ending--I just saw it

Wolvie

6:45 am
Scrabbler

Th** ending changes everything now---**scrambling to find words with th** ending**
6:45 am

6:46 am
majmom

6:46 am

6:49 am
EspritdJean

6:49 am
Scrabbler

How about another clue for that in5 and in4 combo that you mentioned earlier, Sprite?
6:49 am
Wolvie

that would be a plural maj. ;-)
6:49 am
Scrabbler

Yes, the grid bites sometimes, majmom.
6:49 am
majmom

sorry -now its common to everyone
6:49 am

noun: the dark negative feminine principle in Chinese dualistic cosmology (Example: "The interaction of yi* and yang maintains the harmony of the universe")

Drop the last letter for the 4.

Scrabbler

Yes, BR! Let's go Babble Team! (But I have to leave for the hospital very soon--2 newborns, then I go to the office for 3 hrs of sick kids)
6:51 am
Wolvie

right - choc very necessary
6:52 am

Hi, new here. Can't chat long--just checking this out after getting the toddler off to bed. The problem is, I have tried "brine" and "cite" and it says they "do not exist in the puzzle". I see all the letters there and am not using any twice; did I miss something when reading the rules???
1:05 pm
stidmama

looking tropical too, inge -- how was the rouladen last night? and the kartoffeln?
1:05 pm
inge

most people in the northern states have no idea what a bromeliad is. My husband speaks at many garden clubs for taht reason
1:05 pm

Hello, Ren8.
2:10 pm
hurshy

not nec, alo, i can just post it here, it is short
2:11 pm
hurshy

ungreased 8x8 pan

put directly in pan: 1.5 c flour, 1 c sugar, 3 T baking cocoa, 1 t salt, 1 t baking soda. mix.

make three "holes" in the dry mixture, large, medium and small. in the large hole put 3 T veg oil. medium hole, 1 T vinegar. small hole, 1 t vanilla.

over all pour 1 c cold water. mix all thoroughly.

bake at 350 for 35 mins, cool and frost. (i like to use icing, not frosting, just mix powdered sugar with milk until it is thick, add a little vanilla and food coloring if desired).

This grid is a monkier's dream. I have typed in some of the most desperate words. I feel so validated.

hurshy, I copied it also, will try it tonight. Thanks
2:15 pm

Hurshy - Once I buy some cocoa powder, I will bake that cake and take it into work for the guinea pigs (I mean cops) to sample.
2:16 pm
kittychan

has anyone else noticed anything hinky about lickety?
2:16 pm
Judi

Don't think I have an 8x8 pan though. Would it work in a loaf pan?
2:16 pm
hurshy

oh, judi, if there are a lot of cops, you better make more than one. it's only 8x8 you know.
2:17 pm
hurshy

i think it might have to be 8x8 cause of how it rises from vinegar and baking soda
2:17 pm
hurshy

i don't know if it would have enough power to rise loaf height
2:18 pm
hurshy

you can pick one up easily at walmart or a grocery store though
2:18 pm
Judi

Yes, a loaf pan could be a disaster. I will just double the recipe and bake it in a 9x13x2.
2:18 pm
hurshy

see i dunno if you can double it either, or if it only works on a small scale...
2:18 pm
hurshy

it might work fine, or it might not, i just don't know.
2:18 pm

2:39 pm
bendamalina

eh, who cares :) I don't, but I have enough friends who are vegan that I take note when I find a recipe, in case I need an idea for something if they come over.

I just booted up and went here of course, then brought up Lickety and it had all yesterday's stuff on it. So I refreshed, and it still has yesterday's stuff on it but today's grid. I've refreshed a couple more times -- same thing! Any suggestions?
