12:49 am
loredana

hello ruru
12:49 am
stidmama

shady, a few years ago a tree clipped the edge of my parents' home. Thnkfully they had good insurance. 6 months later and more than the cost of the remodel ten years earlier.... it was impressive how much the tree damaged.
12:49 am
rururocks

that is what I think
12:49 am
shdybr8

np, herin, it's a pecan
12:49 am
stidmama

you could make it, lady -- and then send the extra to me? *helpful look*
12:49 am
mrpresident

but, now you have shifted the paradym... we have a Penus Ave down the road... *sniggers*
12:50 am
stidmama

oh golly, mrp! that's just too funny!
12:50 am
rururocks

Do you have a COndom Court to match?
12:50 am
shdybr8

insurance here has $8500 US HURRICANE deductible - not worth claiming
12:50 am
nDanLia

dialect differences
12:51 am
herinfernallady

Take down the tree yourself/
12:51 am
stidmama

maybe the wood is worth something and could offset the damage?
12:51 am
herinfernallady

So you have to pay the money or the other way round?
12:51 am
shdybr8

in progress, herin (see pics from today) lol
12:51 am
herinfernallady

hi ru
12:51 am

latest "joke" is how can you tell the next hurricane track .... just see where state farm is cancelling policies
12:51 am

talking of all that there is a street in wellington called Old Bullock Road - well it got a nice new sign the other day and someone made a booboo and gave it a new name Old Bolocks Road
12:52 am
shdybr8

unless it costs more than 8500, we're on our own
12:52 am
rururocks

hi herin
12:52 am
stidmama

at least get the adjustor to look at the damage, shady. It might be worth the deductible after all. surprising how much sometimes needs tweaking after a hit like that
12:52 am
shdybr8

love it, kiwi
12:52 am
stidmama

ooooh, nDan. that one is only too true
12:52 am

that is what helpers nd a slab of beer and a bbq is for shady

hooleydooley ndan...
12:53 am

rofl at kiwi sign story
12:53 am
shdybr8

i agree, stid, but the ex owns the house, he won't listen to words of wisdom, only panic
12:54 am
stidmama

hm. well, that's too bad then. men sometimes are overly emotional about things like this and don't think it through. (in my experience)
12:54 am
shdybr8

while he and flunkie work on roof, i retire to other (safer) part of house for the day, in case it all comes down
12:55 am
GroovyKiwi

its a man thing shdy my ex wont listen to the words of my ex lawyer either so i got a new one last week whos going to make him listen lol
12:55 am

YOu need Nuttie Shady she is good with a chainsaw

on ya kiwi! how is this one different to the last lawyer?
12:56 am

I think shady needs to come vacation with us while the house is being fixed. We NEVER have hurricanes here in the Pacific NW...
12:56 am
shdybr8

go kiwi!!!!
12:56 am
herinfernallady

Good Groovy.
12:56 am
GroovyKiwi

well i fired my lawyer last week because she told me to settle on ex's terms which meant he would have the control over the house even tho he wouldnt have any financial interest which did not impress me
12:56 am
shdybr8

**heading to airport*** Oh, wait, I have a job, darn!
12:57 am
GroovyKiwi

the new lawyer says that no family court judge in new zealand would agree to those terms
12:57 am

what specifically makes you against him? I haven't decided yet; always vote for the person, not the party, and I haven't made up my mind yet

seaking for myself as a gay person, status quo beats someone trying to ammend the constitution to discriminate - against anyone.

1:34 am
herinfernallady

Hey. Thats your choice Volley but as the Man that is going to run a country how do you justify enforcing that on a rape/incest victim or someone whos child is genetically deformed and will die at birth .
1:34 am
VolleymomDee

I understand that position jili; but have too many friends who would have been dead if there moms had aborted them; instead they were adopted; I am one of "those" folks who believe life starts at conception, so I can't support abortion
1:35 am

I think that is God's to handle and or adoption... but that is a huge issue I won't ever loose friends over... what I don't like... he is old (although his mom is in 90's); he has a very strong military background which is a bit scary; and I like his position on fuel - expanding to other areas; drilling offshore...

sorry, another republican here, but in the "small government" sense. I am pro-choice, pro gay marriage (or at the very least partners' rights), not religious. But I was raised in a family that believes in working for what you have, not giving it all to the government and letting them decide for you. I don't much like McCain, but I also don't want a democrat in office to discourage, through higher taxation, people from earning more. I personally am not wealthy, nor have I ever used welfare, not even FEMA now while I'm in a devastated area. I believe in personal responsibility, and I think a republican government is more geared towards that. Am I off base?

my brother's church and congregation prefer Obama's social positions (healthcare particularly) but I don't think he will accomplish any of those goals

One problem so far for me, Dee, is that McCain doesn't seem to have a defined economic plan. I have bigger issues when it comes to the fact that personal liberties will be further infringed

Ruru, why scary?
1:42 am

shdy, you describe a traditional Repbulican. To my reckoning, the nat'l party does not represent that any more, except in a few regions, like the NE

that is, NY/New England

that scares me too freep

McCain isn't the one who wants to change healthcare... so that was just an observation on my part

GWB had the highest approval rating, too, at one point early on, pigeonman. But I think it's moot. Karl Rove ridiculed Gov. Kaine of Virginia as a possible VP choice because of his experience as Governor and Mayor of Richmond.

Simple truth is, the rest of the country doesn't know her at all. Don't believe most of what you hear about her on the internet. I don't know anything about the other candidates except what I hear on the news. I DO know about Palin, and I'm telling you, you have nothing to worry about.

3:18 am

Come on, Lori. You can hide behide the DENSA label, but we all know better.

If I get in to a political conversation, it may involve riot police, so I avoid them like the plague....
3:21 am
Haz1558

dc, you say the nicest things. Positive thoughts, I hope?
3:21 am

indeed, haz! i want to lecture them on how to give clues/hints, rather than spelling the words out! drives me batty

whats the point if they dont want to think for it?

mayhap. i'll draft a, well not a diatribe, but a ... strong suggestion for my profile when i'm better rested.
3:23 am
lynxxx

totally agree!
3:24 am
Haz1558

It's just that my definition of a clue differs radically from others. And you get those who protest that clues are elitist in flavour and prefer the spoonfeeding method.
3:24 am
LoriP

That's great DC. I'm too fiery, so to keep my blood pressure down, and not tick anybody off, I avoid religious and political discussions. It's a mental health thing. :p
3:24 am
dcseain

indeed, lore! one person on days has memory issues, and needs simpler clues, i understand, but stil.
3:24 am
Haz1558

I spoonfeed snakes for no-one!
3:24 am
dcseain

i understand and respect that, lori, many agree with you on that point, too.
3:25 am

lol Haz
3:25 am
dcseain

snakes are easily fed by hand, in my experience. it's fun to watche constrictors eat.
3:25 am
VolleymomDee

I vascillate widely to both sides of the clue issue; depends totally on my mental faculties for that day :~)
3:25 am
LoriP

I love finding words. But when I'm stuck, I like working a clue just as much.
3:26 am
LoriP

lolol Volley. That's honest!
3:26 am
dcseain

fair enough, dee. i do enjoy deciphering the clues, though.
3:26 am
loredana

ditto LoriP
3:26 am
dcseain

although some pop culture references miss me completely.
3:27 am
VolleymomDee

... had to be honest... if you checked chat archive for couple months, you would think I am 2 persons in one LOL
3:27 am
loredana

it also has become a race which infuriates me!!! i will own up to making a few snide remarks eg Olympics??? went over the heads! lol
3:27 am
Haz1558

You're never going to hit a cultural reference that everyone is going to get, but google is great and there's always the possibility of consulting a dictionary. It's not banned, is it?
3:27 am
dcseain

and i have fun giving punny clues :)
3:27 am
dcseain

indeed so, haz, when it occurs to me to google :)
3:27 am
LoriP

I'm sure it did lore..... Dictionary Haz? Does it have pictures?
3:27 am
Haz1558

Oh, Volley. Maybe you've got the same thing as FMItch. She has two heads, you know. We found out the other day in conversation. It explains a lot.
3:28 am
VolleymomDee

3:28 am

Oh Haz, if only there were some online resource you could shamelessly promote.

3:48 am
LoriP

heh heh heh
3:49 am
Haz1558

Oh look, I've just seen your icon, Lori. What are the entrance requirements or is it by invitation only?
3:51 am
LoriP

It's a very exclusive club. Docking fees are beyond reasonable.
3:51 am
Haz1558

Exclusive, you say? No riff-raff?
3:52 am
LoriP

Shirley not.
3:52 am
Haz1558

You refuse the hoi-polloi?
3:53 am
LoriP

The peons, and begonias are on their own.
3:54 am
Haz1558

Is Ata a member?
3:55 am
LoriP

lol, definitely. Has Ata Hara achieved parole yet?
3:56 am
Haz1558

No. It's a sad story. She's still detained in the US. She mentioned something about having won a commission for artwork, but she's covering. Negotiations have reached a delicate stage with the immigration people.
3:56 am
Haz1558

If anybody wants to send money to the campaign, 'Free the Canterbury one' make the cheque payable to Haz1558, c/o babble.
3:57 am
LoriP

Good Lord. Do we need to bring in a SWAT team?
3:57 am
Haz1558

All contributions will be acknowledged from my island paradise retreat.
3:58 am
Haz1558

No, Lori, they say she's not dangerous. We'll have men in plain-clothes hanging about talking into their sleeves. It'll be low-key when she returns.
3:58 am
bfsog

fireworks
3:59 am
LoriP

Ahh, I just hope they're wearing the appropriate tinted eye wear.
3:59 am
LoriP

It could make all the difference.

Hooray for bfsog!

Haz, filling in for ATa Hari?
4:06 am
loredana

good one LoriP
4:07 am
Haz1558

Well, I know I can never fill shoes as big as hers, Lori, but someone has to have a measure of smug, now and again.
4:07 am
mari

Morning all - can anyone help with the he6/21
4:07 am
loredana

Good Morning Mari

G'd morning mari. Sorry, I haven't touched the h yet.

It'd be a start Haz, but I know you can do better.
4:08 am
mari

4:08 am
Haz1558

I'll keep working on it.
4:08 am

lynxxx

Congrats Mari!
4:13 am
mari

Finish just to see the video. Determined to be a nicer person today :)
4:14 am
Haz1558

Well, you could always start by sending a cheque to the Free Ata campaign. Make the cheque payable to Haz....
4:14 am
Haz1558

I'd better keep working to get to see that video.
4:14 am
loredana

Oh Haz anyone would think you were hardup for money! lol
4:15 am
Haz1558

Am I not being subtle?
4:15 am

G'd morning FM.
4:18 am
FMitch

umm I was finishing my h4work?
Morning Haz, Lori and lynxxx
4:18 am
Haz1558

Your head work? Getting them to talk nicely to each other?
4:19 am
FMitch

oh ha ha!
4:19 am
Haz1558

I suppose it's an acceptable excuse.
4:19 am
FMitch

Feel like I haven't got any heads today or at least no brains
4:19 am
LoriP

h work? ***no idea what that could b***
4:19 am
Haz1558

It comes perilously close to being housework and you know how competitive Lori is about that.
4:20 am
MonkeyGames

OK, can't ignore the weather. Goingto hit the nursery and garden center. Back later!
4:20 am

Guess what - the weather forecast said 'you will be very unlucky if you see rain today' It's pouring.

Haz go to the PB you are getting very flip these days with grid words!
4:20 am
Haz1558

Do we need to give you lots of hints, FM?
4:21 am
FMitch

No way, I am laying myself open again like that, even for the amuement of the babble world :)
4:21 am
Haz1558

Am I not immune? Do I not have diplomatic status or something?
4:21 am
lynxxx

thank goodness - the 10 out of the way
4:22 am
Haz1558

Oh, go on, FMitch. It may be a slow chat day and we'll need something in reserve for a laugh.
4:22 am
LoriP

What 2 letters does it start with Lynx?
4:22 am
FMitch

yay lynxxx, I have it too so maybe there is hope for me yet and I have the yl4 (feels mildly smug)
4:22 am
Haz1558

Well done lynxxx!
4:22 am
lynxxx

ho - think of me!
4:23 am
LoriP

Well FM, you'll havta' ratchet up the smug-O-meter to catch Haz.
4:23 am
FMitch

Lori I avoided saying the first 5 letters earlier - Haz hoever didn't
4:23 am
FMitch

sorry 4 letters
4:24 am
LoriP

Thanks Lynx. Almost afraid to admit I got it from that clue. ***mixed emotions***
4:24 am
Haz1558

Yes indeed. I'm trying to fill Ata's huge shoes.
4:24 am
LoriP

I only had the ho 8. Thanks again Lynx, you rock!
4:24 am
FMitch

Ata hasn't got big feet!?
4:25 am
lynxxx

plain but useful, that's me
4:25 am
LoriP

Or at least, an 8. Any more big one from that? I better look again.
4:26 am
Haz1558

I meant big shoes in the smugness sense. I think.
4:27 am
FMitch

Ahhhh I must have missed that part of the conversation. She will be unbelievibly smug when she gets back
4:27 am
FMitch

and so would I if I were in her shoes :)
4:27 am
Haz1558

They'll have to get an aircraft with extra wide doors for both her head and her feet to get through.
4:28 am
Haz1558

You may have two heads. She'll have one HUGE one.
4:28 am
FMitch

I see one cant lu4 today so no hiding for anyone.
4:30 am
FMitch

Vi and I think you should come 'out' Haz and admit to your other affliction.
4:30 am
Haz1558

Cross-stitching on the sly?
4:31 am
Haz1558

LIfe membership of the Jordan fan club?
4:31 am
FMitch

Your sudoku addiction, as if babble wasn't enough!
We will be there if you need us :)
4:31 am
Haz1558

I was caught out, wasn't I?
4:32 am
FMitch

lol well and truly, as noted by the ungodly hour you were getting your fix at!
4:32 am
Haz1558

Believe me, it's an affliction more than an addiction. I don't have the patience to finish more than about one a year. And I don't look every day by any means.
4:32 am
FMitch

Oh dear, denial is the classic symptom
4:33 am
Haz1558

I know. I should just admit now that I AM THE WORLD CHAMPION AT SUDOKU!!
4:33 am
FMitch

Is my namesake back at Uni yet?
4:34 am
Haz1558

No, she goes back next Monday. She's getting started on her dissertation, allegedly.
4:35 am
FMitch

phone..
4:35 am
Haz1558

That'll be the newspapers to interview FMitch 'Had you no inkling that Haz was Sudoku World Champion?'
4:36 am
FMitch

delusional now too, it's worse than I thought!
4:37 am
LoriP

***touch MY meds at 'yer own risk***
4:37 am

LOL at both of you :)
4:38 am
LoriP

heh, i accidentally greyed out the top h.
4:39 am
FMitch

ooo goes hunting the su8, thanks lynxxx

Haz1558

Feeling su8 that I already have it.
4:39 am
LoriP

We shall call Haz Mother su8 from now on.....
4:40 am
Haz1558

Yes! Especially now that you know about my su8 skills in sucky ducky.
4:40 am

Bye lynxxx
4:42 am

very strange not to have a t in the grid
4:50 am
Haz1558

It's a funny kind of grid altogether.
4:51 am
FMitch

Finally found the su8 - think I need a coffee break.
4:51 am
Haz1558

Don't feel inferior!
4:51 am
LoriP

Scored some more k's. 2 k's left. ***le sigh***
4:51 am

Now you give a clue!!!
4:52 am

Ok time for coffe and I have some calls to make, toodles for now :)

4:53 am
Haz1558

Shall we have a group departure?
4:54 am
FMitch

On the count of 3
4:54 am

Prob'ally. i have 2 minutes, so I'll say be back after kids are off to skool. Laters!

5:22 am

Thank you! I know it is based on the ho4 (right?) from earlier comments... have a 6; are they related?
5:22 am
lynxxx

She is, however, expected back in this country next week. That's if the bribes work.

10:04 am
Haz1558

he4/5 - he plus three quarters of feline King of the jungle.
10:04 am
Haz1558

The greeting would have a double consonant, this takes one out and replaces it with a vowel.

I'm still in Oregon, for another week or so, some mad person decided to pay me lots of money to redesign his coffee shop logo, so I thought I'd stay here to talk to him about it. Of course, it's even more impossible to create than the salmon and mermaid debacle!

hurshy

FYI
12:01 pm

segment of the moon? -- doesn't help me
12:02 pm

Okay, forget the segment. It's a babbler ending in winkle plus the moon.
12:02 pm
Vicuna

I'll have to look for such a thing, hursh! Thanks.
12:03 pm
Atalante

very odd word!
12:03 pm
cybernan

12:04 pm

12:06 pm
Atalante

12:06 pm
cybernan

oh yes - guess I get the fish
12:06 pm
Vicuna

Oh! lol
12:06 pm
Atalante

and acts like it too
12:07 pm
Vicuna

I was going to guess Ho5 next, so it would have been a long while!
12:07 pm
Vicuna

Nor an or6 dog of any nationality, really, hursh.
12:07 pm
Atalante

I have one of those here too
12:08 pm
Vicuna

You make your location sound so enticing, Ata.
12:08 pm
Atalante

but I also have a small black kitten fuzzball with the loudest purr in the world!
12:09 pm

Well, that makes up for a lot.

12:10 pm
Atalante

12:11 pm
Vicuna

pu6/30 - in a weak manner
12:11 pm
Vicuna

Oooh, very unhappy screens!
12:11 pm
cybernan

pu 6: descriptive of a play on words
12:11 pm
Vicuna

Can she get herself unstuck?
12:11 pm
Atalante

well they haven't collapsed ... yet
12:11 pm
Atalante

yep, she gets to the top and then jumps down
12:11 pm
cybernan

I suppose vic's definition is the correct one!
12:12 pm
scribekd

thanks, the combo of the 2 clues finally did it!
12:12 pm
Vicuna

If our cat gets a claw stuck in a screen, she can't get free and has to be rescued, although while struggling most ungratefully.
12:12 pm
Vicuna

Yours would have double n's, I think, cyber!
12:13 pm
Atalante

silly girl! I'm sure kyla will get to that stage when she's a bit bigger and less kitten-elastic
12:13 pm
Vicuna

(I don't know how that "although" got into that sentence. Must have wandered over from something else I was thinking.)
12:13 pm
cybernan

cute cats, atalante -- the tabby with the kitten looks a lot like one we had
12:14 pm
