yes indeed. in fact the saguaro cactus grows only in the sonoran desert (although that desert runs from the Gulf of California (Baja) up to about 60 miles north of me. So we have whales in our desert along with the normal snakes and such.

DC, one of the schools my oldest child is looking at (she's going into 5th grade next year) offers Chinese and she would really like to learn it.
1:47 am

indeed sprite. I've learned Cyrillic, Greek, Chinese, and and Amharic writing systems, i'm sure it'll come. :)
1:47 am
dcseain

oh, she should, mar! it's great fun :)
1:48 am
dcseain

and you get to confound people by saying things right, like i did to a customer the other day, who was stunned i got the tone right on her surnam, Feng. LOL
1:48 am
sprite

she should, Marmar! Works miracles on the agility of the mind. Very different language to learn, will stretch and widen much more than just her language skills.
1:48 am
sprite

dc, what is Amharic?
1:48 am
Marmar

She sat in on a "sample" class and loved it. The teacher is a big favorite in the school, makes it really fun.
1:48 am

and learning the writing and reading is amazing.

their script is based on Coptic, like Armenian, Georgian, and some others.
1:50 am
Marmar

Sprite, do you speak Chinese too?
1:50 am
dcseain

Amharic came to be at the intersection of Ge'ez and Arabic, about 1200 years ago.
1:50 am
sprite

sounds fascinating
1:50 am
sprite

Marmar: not much. I studied Japanese for 18 months and took Chinese as extra in the last half year.
1:51 am
Marmar

But you've had the exposure to it, that is so valuable.
1:51 am
dcseain

it's surprising how the writing of Japanes and Chines differ, esp in meaning. japanese 'to like' is chinese 'good/well', for example.
1:51 am
sprite

exactly :D
That is why I can recommend it for your daughter with my whole heart.
1:52 am
sprite

the kanji were taken from the chinese for their pronunciation, often, not their meaning, lol.
1:53 am
sprite

and when you realise that the pronuncation of one kanji differs widely from area to area, it breeds for very confusing uses in japanese
1:53 am
Marmar

Noted! We love foreign languages in our house, pity that we speak so few. We listen to french and spanish childrens CD's, watch DVD's in Turkish...it's like music!

I cannot remember an example, dc, but it was more like a kanji pronounced as KAN in once combination and as TOKO in another. That kind of total difference.

if you want to see a VERY young Sean Connery singing an Irish tune, some wonderful leprecaun dance scenes and one a very VERY funny scene with the king of the leprecauns and Darby singing, it's worth a look. And if you've been to Ireland, well, it's just beautiful scenery. Actually called "Darby O'Gill and the Little People".

Both of them crying cause of the fight. I just had to sit and be neutral

2:45 am
mrpresident

Luke felt Maddison was being disrespectful and picking on him for not being a perfectionist.... she felt that he was being mean by saying that she wasn't nice to him 'ever'...
2:46 am
sprite

at the very least, jilli, they learnt it is possible to have a frightening fight with a loved one and get it settled, and still be very close and with love intact.
2:46 am
dcseain

my little sister was viscous at me, from a very young age. I learned quickly not to fight back, as then she'd get in trouble. Once, mom found her jumping on my chest. Happily, she didn't do that again.
2:47 am
FranMag

that's great that they actually talked it out. i hope my two will be that close.
2:47 am

loredana

hugs for Princess Aloha Fran Hey Pink Hola dc s
3:43 am
FranMag

yay! found all the 6s
3:43 am

loredana

3:44 am
sprite

3:45 am

3:46 am
sprite

with their chin, dc
3:46 am
dcseain

3:46 am
dcseain

3:48 am
sprite

3:49 am
FranMag

cool sprite!
3:49 am
FranMag

do you have the co6/24?
3:50 am
sprite

nope, only co6/27!
3:50 am
FranMag

we've had the co6/24 before, it's another name for a pain medication
3:51 am
FranMag

it starts like a "secret language" and ends with a bunch of vowels.
3:51 am
sprite

ahhhh, yes, thanks, that one! It is the ending that always eludes me.
3:51 am
sprite

3:54 am
FranMag

pink, de + a smell with a different second vowel
3:55 am
sprite

lol Fran, ok, I feel thoroughly chastised. Back with both feet on the firm ground :P
3:55 am
FranMag

well, in your case sprite, the clue was totally appropriate and not facetious. :-)
3:56 am
sprite

I hope so, Fran, grin
3:56 am
dcseain

indeed, so fran, on all counts.
3:56 am
pinkhatlil

???????
3:56 am
sprite

de + form of to be with inserted vowel then?
3:56 am
FranMag

pink, try this, de + vowel + it's a himalayan ce*** tree
3:57 am
FranMag

pink needs the second de6/24 i think
3:57 am
sprite

oh, lol, I am still clueing the 21, since pink asked that one first. I see now it is remedied.
3:58 am
pinkhatlil

it is the second/last de six
3:58 am
dcseain

unfledged /uhn-FLEJD/, adjective:

4:04 am
FranMag

oh cool!
4:04 am
FranMag

now, how is it pronounced?
4:04 am
sprite

it is one of my favorite babblets. There is a dutch word, ´gewis´, that means the same and is archaic too. Must be related.

Stewart Little - 2.5 yo white & brindle smaller male greyhound...never raced but been in racing kennels most of his life till now. He seems to have a really really nice nature
4:26 am
dcseain

so cage-trained?
4:27 am
lynxxx

not sure what that means DC?
4:27 am
KatieMcG

speaking from bitter experience, insure him and insure him now!! I'm thinking of getting my wages transfered straight to the vets :-)
4:27 am
dcseain

kennel-raised means likely he's accustomed to being in a cage when unattended and/or not being exercised.
4:28 am
pinkhatlil

that is lovely lynxxx, i hope all are very happy with him!!!
4:30 am
KatieMcG

Is his name Stuart Little?
4:31 am
lynxxx

Not sure how they do it here DC - he has been fostered for a month (in home environment) and seems perfectly at home in the house now - in fact won't outside by himself. Exercise - what is that! they can only go on max. 20 minutes walks (without building up) say once or twice a day. Stewart Little is his kennel name
4:31 am
dcseain

cute name :)
4:32 am
dcseain

interesting, so greyhounds are low-endurance?
4:32 am
dcseain

they're a breed i know little about.
4:32 am
lynxxx

Katie - yes I know what you mean...our late dog would have cost us about $10,000 (min) over the last 3 years..diabetes, 2 knee ops, heart etc
4:32 am

I had Crumble at the vets again this morning so now I have one poorly cat feeling sorry for itself, and one upset cat because her sister isn't well, it's been one of those days!

Ohhh! Lynxxx, you got a grey?!?! I would like to have one, but don't think husband likes them.
5:00 am
phandmd

was it a racing dog?
5:00 am
NonoNanette

they went away on vacation and left the dog in daughters care
5:00 am
NonoNanette

the dog got out and went around the neighborhood looking for "mama"
5:01 am
NonoNanette

they went after her calling her name and the more they called for her the faster the dog ran
5:01 am
NonoNanette

chased her for several blocks before they finally caught up and were able to leash her
5:02 am
lynxxx

I haven't had much to do with them before, but there is so many around as the Adopt-A-Greyhound is very strong here...I have been really taken with them. Bred for racing but didn't race Phand - maybe as he is small for a male. Nono - a grey owner told me to use Smackos as a training treat/reward for coming back - if they accidently get off lead
5:04 am

how old is he/what is his name? I am sure you will enjoy him alot.

congratulations on the new addition lynxxx....have a good day all, one must resume studying!!!
5:12 am
phandmd

I know, it can be very difficult to pick just one. I have heard it say, once you go grey you never go back. Also, I understand that they are not too overwhelming to have more than one.
5:15 am
lynxxx

Thats funny - my nail lady says exactly the same about black nail polish - and its true! Yes - evryone I have met seems to have at least 2. They are couch potatos, need minimal excercise, little grooming, affectionate, clean - what more could you want! they even suit apartment living. Here they do not have to be muzzled either - just wear a special collar and be on lead
5:17 am
phandmd

you wear black nail polish?
5:17 am
lynxxx

Anyway must stop gushing. Still have 10 to find or use the list tomorrow. Goodnite Phand & everyone- have a good day.
5:18 am

Love the black nail polish - looks good with silver jewellery...and it really worries the young goth types when they see an 'old' lady with it on. You should try it

6:37 am
Aloyisius

6:37 am
Anniebrook

mrp!...I opened the url and your house is beautiful!!! I could understand your being loathe to leave such a serene house but I am sure your next home will be just as wonderful
6:38 am

7:02 am
Anniebrook

Anniebrook

Is it just you and me now, Annie?
7:08 am
Anniebrook

scrabbler, how is your friend Mary?
7:10 am
Scrabbler

I visited on Saturday evening. She finished her last radiation treatment on Thursday and will now continue chemo. She is extremely weak--cannot walk, so physical and occupational therapy are the main focuses now. There are 2 small Xmas trees in her room, and the kids were all there. I fed the baby. It is SO sad, so surreal. The good news is that the tumors are shrinking...will they disappear?? We can only wait.
7:12 am
Anniebrook

Scrabbler, Very sad. Is she home? How many children does she have? I pray for her recovery every night
7:14 am
Scrabbler

The kids are 7 (girl), 3 1/2 (boy) and the 10 wk old baby (girl). To see them all on the bed, cuddling with their sick mom is heartbreaking and just overwhelming with emotions.
7:14 am
bbnaz

hello you two
7:14 am
Anniebrook

hi bb!
7:15 am
Scrabbler

She is still in the hospital and the next step is to go to a rehab facility. I am sure her husband will try to have her home for at least several hrs on Xmas day.
7:15 am
Scrabbler

Hi Betsy!
7:15 am
Anniebrook

scrabbler, truly heartbreaking...an infant too in the mix..so sad
7:16 am
bbnaz

i do not do well durin gthe holidays. you know classic depression and all yet when i read what you write scrabbler, it seems so self indulgent. not only your friend but one of mine has been diagnosed with als, another had their wife die.........so no time for me to have a pity party for meself
7:16 am
Anniebrook

bb, love your Christmas "tree"
7:17 am
bbnaz

*smile* I think that the saguaro is the most beautiful cactus
7:17 am
Scrabbler

There has been so much tragedy that I am involved with in the last few motnhs--terrible diagnoses, deaths.
7:17 am
Scrabbler

I have found just 31 words--they are not jumping out at me.
7:17 am
bbnaz

Yours is a very difficult profession
7:18 am
Anniebrook

28 words here...
7:18 am
bbnaz

I have 33 and I started at the flip. I do have the 8 though so am pleased.
7:18 am
Scrabbler

Yes, and it reminds me to be grateful for good health.
7:19 am
Scrabbler

An 8? Ah, yes. I didn't review the stats.
7:19 am
Anniebrook

7:19 am
Scrabbler

Pretty please, a clue?
7:20 am

7:20 am
Scrabbler

Aha. TY! I had just found the co6 a moment ago.
7:20 am
Anniebrook

7:20 am

7:22 am
Uniquity

7:26 am

7:29 am
bbnaz

i am having lunch with my friend with als. first time since his diagnosis so i am lingering here too.
7:29 am
Scrabbler

I always laugh after I open the list. I start to see so many obvious words. Aha!
7:30 am
Scrabbler

That is a miserable illness, Betsy--SO sad.
7:30 am
bbnaz

you know at least with alzheimer's you get to the point where you are unaware.........
7:31 am
Anniebrook

that is an awful illness, bb, so sad
7:31 am
Scrabbler

But with ALS it is a slow paralyzing death from respiratory failure.
7:32 am
bbnaz

and he is somewhat estranged from his children so he lives alone. bloody kids but maybe this will be the catalyst to put it to rights.
7:32 am
Scrabbler

I hope so, Betsy
7:32 am
Scrabbler

Help with cr5 anyone?
7:32 am
bbnaz

i mean he is a bit difficult and most likely made his miscues in the past, but he is their father after all.
7:32 am

7:43 am
Anniebrook

7:51 am
Scrabbler

No luck with the paper--buried! And you missed a good laugh: as I searched in the snow my left leg sunk into the snow at the gully at the end of my driveway. All of sudden I sunk! So my left leg is wet now.

montreal13

ah YOU scrabs happened...
8:26 am
bbnaz

make that "haloperidol"
8:27 am
Scrabbler

Wow, that is quite a powerful combo, Betsy. I take 440 mg of naproxen and that usually knocks it out.
8:27 am
bbnaz

daughter clara has had them since 2nd grade (now in 11th) and when they are bad, that is the only relief
8:27 am
Scrabbler

**attending to Luc's injuries, especially the concussion** **casualty of the chocolate wars**
8:28 am
bbnaz

naproxen, ibu, any of the otc do NOTHING for her.
8:28 am
bbnaz

actually there is question as to whether or not they are "true" migraines as imitrex didn't do a thing for her
8:28 am
montreal13

"thanking scrabs... forgot what goal was...somewhat dizzy"
8:28 am
Scrabbler

The pain is not so bad for me as is the dazed/confused/foggy feeling.
8:29 am
bbnaz

but no organic reason for them can be found. she is being treated for tmd right now though. they suspect that causes some of the cluster headaches
8:29 am
periwinkle

Scarlet have you made fudge with chocolate morsels and sweetened condensed milk
8:29 am
bbnaz

and as I said, that cocktail is the "silver bullet" and not used regularly
8:29 am
Scrabbler

The best way to prevent injury when chocolate is available is to have an abundance of chocolate!
8:30 am
Scrabbler

Cluster HAs are severe!
8:30 am
montreal13

chocolate ? what year are we ?
8:30 am

Well, I must prevent another migraine by getting breakfast now before blood sugar plummets too low.

9:06 am
Haz1558

I hope the nun in the penalty box isn't muttering naughty words under her breath.
9:06 am
Scarlet

**There, there, dear Annie** I have some hot coffee and your favorite chocolate macadamia nut cookies to soothe your conscience...
9:06 am
Vicuna

First they looked just like the Scrabble tiles. Then he changed it to something else, but it was harder to read, so then the current font was a third try. If I remember correctly, which is, of course, never assured.
9:06 am
Mom

thank you Haz
9:06 am
Takuma Sato

Man, this is the time to be in the PB
9:06 am
Haz1558

You're all so soft! If she does the crime, she does the time!
9:07 am

Haz must be planning to run for mayor of NYC.

9:09 am
Vicuna

We've got to get some PhD candidate anthropologist somewhere to study the culture of Babble for his or her theis.
9:09 am

9:09 am
Scarlet

Good morning, Une!

9:09 am

9:10 am
Uneaixoise

timeline could be hilarious . . . day first troll appeared, day "throw me a fish" became standard Babble usage, day "babblet" entered the lexicon . . .
9:10 am

9:11 am
montreal13

day the PB was invented...
9:11 am
Anniebrook

*need more cookies*-----muttering
9:11 am
Takuma Sato

er, richest and poorest grids, or something like that
9:11 am
Uneaixoise

absolutely, takuma!
9:11 am
Haz1558

It would be interesting to see how many of the original players are still around. And to calculate how many people have played. Frankly I'd just make up a figure and defy anyone to contradict me!
9:12 am
Uneaixoise

would pecan brownies do, Annie?
9:12 am
montreal13

don't try that Annie, your time is up - out you go !!!
9:12 am
Vicuna

Dr_G may have the info about the grids. Atalante once asked him for the five largest grids in history, and he had them.
9:12 am
EvaNadine

i consider myself fairly original. :)
9:12 am
Anniebrook

Une, that would be wonderful
9:12 am
Takuma Sato

the first use of "fish hook letter" (which I still don't understand)
9:12 am
Scarlet

*Throws more cookies over the PB transom* *Offers some valium to Annie to quiet the muttering*
9:12 am

Now you're indulging her and rewarding bad behaviour. You'll all rue the day!
9:12 am
Uneaixoise

9:12 am
Marc Freeman

do5/16, please
9:12 am
Takuma Sato

gp, vic. it hadn't occurred to me that he'd have all that info
9:13 am
Vicuna

You're original, EvaN. I'm purely derivative.
9:13 am
Haz1558

Whoever started those silly letter names should spend a LONG time in the PB, no cookies, no nail files.
9:13 am
Mom

Haz, you and I started within a few days of each other
9:13 am
Anniebrook

Well, Hazel, I am out, no thanks to you!

"Stick letter" "T-shaped letter"
9:14 am
Marc Freeman

Haz, it did help and I got it 2 to go
9:14 am
Vicuna

Tell them they can only get out of jail if they can solve a clue that does not use any spelling.
9:14 am
montreal13

tx haz and une
9:14 am
Uneaixoise

single hump . . . double hump . . . ugh
9:14 am
Takuma Sato

B-shaped letter, O-shaped letter, O-shaped letter!
9:14 am
Scarlet

Oh, Haz... I so agree... sometimes, when I have some words to finish, I see the clueing with ladder letters, hooks, curvy letters... and go screeching up a wall, begging for oxygen and demanding a frontal lobotamy...
9:14 am
Krista

hi folks..I'd be happy to just remember how I found Babble in the first place...have no idea
9:14 am
Haz1558

Now you're coming round to my way of thinking, montreal.
9:14 am
Uneaixoise

9:14 am
Mom

{{Krista}} good morning
9:14 am
Vicuna

Give 'em he + double hockey sticks, Haz! lol

9:15 am
EvaNadine

i had a friend who used to babble. i dont think she still does, but if she does, she doesnt chat anymore...i dont even remember which username she used...

but then i got a few coworkers hooked. ;)
9:15 am
Haz1558

Some day I'll get in trouble for speaking my mind but it looks like I've got a lot of agreement here!
9:15 am
montreal13

what do you mean now ? - i just want to make the time in the PB a little more pleasurable...
9:15 am
Krista

Thanks, Mom. :)
9:15 am
Takuma Sato

it was briefly very popular in an office at the university I used to attend
9:16 am
Takuma Sato

I don't remember how they found it
9:16 am
Scarlet

As the saying goes, Haz... "Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse!"
9:16 am
Mom

:)
9:16 am
Haz1558

montreal, it was the fact that you were throwing away the key for the letter abominators.
9:16 am
montreal13

9:16 am
smcarrier

clu that de6,24 please
9:16 am
Mom

my sweetie found it for me from a USA Today article
9:16 am
Takuma Sato

but when no one chatted, we used chat to communicate, cross-campus
9:16 am
EvaNadine

i dont really mind the letter-names, but i try to avoid them when clue-ing, unless i either get (1) frustrated with myself because i cant think of a good clue or (2) annoyed with other people asking for clues for the same word over + over again...
9:16 am
Krista

Wow, I've been here 3.5 years. I didn't think it was that long. No wonder I don't remember (aged brain).
9:16 am
Marc Freeman

The last 5 I need a clue for is the first re5/14, please?

EvaNadine

ooh, youve got me beat, krista -- October 2004 here!
9:17 am
Vicuna

Mom, I think my sweetie must have read the same article. He's the one who recommended it to me.
9:17 am
Takuma Sato

Though in the desperate situations, I prefer the old practice of giving a googleable definition
9:17 am
Haz1558

de, then replace one vowel in the American smell or fragrance.
9:17 am
Krista

Hey Montreal! Strange..it is sunny here but snowing. Eva - you getting snow??

9:17 am
EvaNadine

it snowed a week or so ago...but no snow at the moment...

Hi, pete. That's your average word length
9:19 am

To my shame I once sent my child off to school with chickenpox. She had complained of feeling itchy, but hand on heart it was only when I whipped up her blouse the afternoon after school that all was revealed......
9:31 am
Krista

thanks, ladies...no one fainted at the idea of taking him to grandma's with the sniffles...my mother would send me packing on a guilt trip
9:31 am
Scarlet

Fooey on the guilt-infusers... they are the bane of my existence
9:31 am
Haz1558

Krista - it's probably just a cold. He'll be fine!
9:32 am
Scarlet

You have to think of what YOU need sometimes too, Krista...
9:32 am
Haz1558

Just check for itchy spots first, to make sure it's not the chickenpox.
9:32 am

Bet she infected the whole school, Haz. ;)

Hi, Saddy, and so long Babble Nation... life calls! See you later!]
9:33 am

She may have done, Krista, but she has forgiven me. Our attitude has always been to keep going unless you really can't.
9:33 am
Krista

It's weird with chicken pox now..they get the vaccine, so if they get it, it's a mild version - hard to tell if it's chicken pox at all.
9:33 am

(CONFUSION DISCLAIMER) okay so the "who's hot" column didn't move for me for almost 35 days until it went up 1 and now it has dropped 2 points. Go figure as I have finished every puzzle since Nov 5th. Not important but makes me crazy.
9:37 am

9:38 am
SaddySolar

9:39 am
SaddySolar

9:39 am
Haz1558

There's Who's hot, Village Elders and something else.
9:40 am
bbnaz

i was floating along at 1030 and didn't finish one puzzle. dropped like a stone to 988 where i have languished since until it finally went up 1 and now it has dropped two.............all with finished puzzles. i am more concerned with finishing my puzzles and babbling here but it still makes me crazy.
9:40 am
montreal13

but all the 1031 are back at 1030 today ! go figure !!!!
9:40 am
bbnaz

and no Haz, he didn't say anything other than it was wonky
