my goodness, that's a long hiring process
2:12 am

VolleymomDee

you will love being your own boss!
2:21 am
Hugabugs

I'm looking forward to having regular clients and working on books again. I really miss it.
2:22 am
VolleymomDee

isn't it fabulous to work on something you are passionate about? I am like that about editing, proofing, and writing... gives me such peace and satisfaction. I am so happy for you.
2:22 am
Atalante

I want to be a proofreader *sigh* or copy editor
2:23 am
Hugabugs

I wouldn't mind doing that either. I read the paper and keep finding errors and it drives me

Hi lyn

ditto that ata and hug. Hi lyn!
2:24 am
VolleymomDee

how many di words?
2:24 am
Atalante

is it possible to train as a copy editor / proofreader, Volley? Or is everyone expected to have English / media degrees?
2:26 am
Hugabugs

I have di x 6 - but I'm missing 4 d's
2:26 am
VolleymomDee

I don't know for sure; the lady I talked to about it here was a bit snooty, so unsure of real truth. She said her colleagues all had literary degrees and mega years of experience... my question was... how do you get experience and she just laughed... so I don't know
2:26 am
VolleymomDee

have you ever researched it online ata?
2:27 am
VolleymomDee

I, too, have di x 6 and I am missing 4 d's
2:28 am
Hugabugs

2 from the first D in the first column, and 2 from the bottom d
2:28 am
Atalante

yeah ... that's kind of where I run up against barriers too. I have done on and off over a few years. It's the one thing I'd really like to do, and I know I'm really good at it, but I've only had experience working on scientific manuscripts and a few published short stories. And I can't work out how to get from there to trying to make it a profession.
2:28 am
Hugabugs

dhx 2
2:28 am
Atalante

Yes, everyone just says they have vast experience, lit degress blah blah. No-one ever seems to *start*
2:29 am
VolleymomDee

ty hug; I found it really frustrating ata; and I have proofed several books that have been published...
2:30 am
Atalante

oh that's encouraging :P
2:30 am
VolleymomDee

hug, here are my d's: da, 11 de's; dh x 2; di x 6; 8 do's

I just greyed them all Dee - thanks
2:31 am
nursegladys

ata there are many places that do courses on proof reading - just google it. chapter house publishing do correspondence courses
2:31 am
VolleymomDee

but my chances at "regular" consistent proofing jobs have been few...
2:31 am
Atalante

there are courses around for £500 - £1000, but I'm wary of those, just because I suspect I'll be paying a lot to learn English grammar and punctuation.
2:31 am
VolleymomDee

do you know what I am missing?
2:31 am
lynxxx

Can you find any temp printing pers. agencies that handle proofreading perhaps. My husband used to run one here many moons ago but I am afraid there is little demand for proofreaders nowadays...he now deals with desktop publishing staff
2:32 am
Atalante

*looks up Chapter House*
2:32 am

hi NurseGladys!
2:32 am

hi all just a quickie as i have to go to work now

oooh yes, I've seen those before. Maybe I could persuade husband to pay for the cheaper course as a very nice christmas present *ponders*
2:33 am
lynxxx

bye NurseG - it was good to see you again anyway
2:33 am
VolleymomDee

really sad lynxxx because as hug said; we find errors due to lack of proofing everywhere; received 2 democrat flyers in our mail, and they were both full of errors
2:33 am
VolleymomDee

ty hug
2:34 am
Atalante

I hate seeing spelling mistakes in published stuff
2:34 am
Hugabugs

There's an article I read in our Sun. paper called Once Upon a Crime... and it is always covered in spelling errors, typos, poor grammar and even the names are switched at times.
2:35 am
Atalante

ick. that's just horrid.
2:36 am
Atalante

I was reading a book a few weeks ago and found 2 stupid spelling mistakes within pages. I was so annoyed I gave the book away
2:36 am
Hugabugs

that happens often... since the onset of spellcheck, it's even worse
2:37 am
Atalante

oh gosh yes. it's unnecessary and just ruins my enjoyment of a book
2:37 am
VolleymomDee

if a book has an email address, I email them about all errors, and I express my displeasure / disappointment
2:37 am
Hugabugs

good idea
2:37 am
Atalante

I should get this book back and do that
2:38 am
VolleymomDee

suggest they use good proofers... maybe that will help that profession! :~)
2:39 am
Atalante

yes :D
2:42 am
Atalante

and it really annoys me when literary people go "oh, you're a scientist, you know nothing about writing"
2:42 am
Atalante

hello? I had a paper in the best-selling scientific journal when I was 20, wrote a 600 page *epic* for my PhD under a supervisor who writes books for a career rather than researches and is the strictest grammarian I've ever known

2:50 am
grannyrose

ta muchly. we have a bay in our recovery room, directly opposite theatre 2 door. problem. the doctors, nurses and techs all use the patient door, instead of the side doors into theatre. if my patient is conscious and fully aware of what is going on, when the staff fling open the theatre door, the patient can see directly into the theatre.
2:50 am
lshult

morning all

GroovyKiwi

2:51 am
Atalante

not ideal ...
2:51 am
VolleymomDee

I have 5 ke's and one ko... missing?
2:51 am
grannyrose

the way i see it, A) the patient in theatre 2 has their privacy compromised, and the patient in the recovery room bay could be visually assaulted by what they can see.
2:51 am
lshult

I am beginning to hate this grid.............at 1st glances words just fly at you, but how can there be 16 8's let alone the 9's?????!!!!

2:53 am
grannyrose

have tried putting up a notice on the inside of the theatre door, but my colleagues ripped it down and threw it away. the notice was with the authorisation of our unit manager
2:54 am
Hugabugs

maybe get the unit mgr to sign the notice??
2:54 am
VolleymomDee

anyway to put a screen in patient area in front of door
2:55 am
Atalante

is there room to put a screen or curtain up?
2:55 am
grannyrose

when i work dee, i try to always put a half-curtain acrooss the foot of the bed/trolley, but if i'm flat out at the other end of the room, i simply don't notice until it's too late.
2:56 am
VolleymomDee

true... they will be sorry if they get sued...
2:56 am
mrpresident

granny, can the patient waiting area have the patients facing away from the door to theatre?
2:57 am
grannyrose

hugs, that was my next thought exactly, get her to sign the notice. but then she says, it's all the responsibility of RR staff......
2:57 am
Atalante

I'd tell the surgeons that any mistake they make in theatre will be witnessed by all!
2:58 am
grannyrose

mrp, good idea, will broach that with our associate unit manager, they do that in other hospitals, maybe ours?
2:58 am
Atalante

that might be the best solution
2:59 am
GroovyKiwi

kia ora mrp didnt see you arrive hugs happy babbling
3:00 am
mrpresident

yes granny, they do that at the hospital I am at... when I am being prepped for surgery, I am facing away from theatre each time... people are coming and going preparing the theatre and they don't want patients freaked by looking in, so we are 'parked' with our head facing well away
3:01 am
grannyrose

also, the area between the ends of the walls dividing RR from the theatre corridor is very wide, about 15 feet, have thought of suggesting plastic opaque doors, but the area is too wide. * sigh *
3:02 am
Atalante

your patients are lucky to have someone so thoughtful, rose

4:45 am
redturtlehead

it is not a position I would normally support MrP, I was overseas...I knew the states history, and it was becomeing very difficult to get an absentee ballot. (I was in Sudan we got a mail drop every 2-3 weeks). In the end, I know my vote wouldnot have mattered.

Haz - I was reading about Ke**y Blue Terriers and just had to save some pieces from it ....typical Irish characters — renowned for their good looks, alertness and gamenesss.

Hello mrpresident!
4:46 am

that is certainly different from not caring to vote, red!

the only good thing about that dog is that it raised so many questions about the ethics of dogs

5:03 am

thousands and thousands, I'm sure
5:03 am

absolutely, sprite. Ditto with Hobbit. I wouldn't have wanted a cocker 20 years ago

5:04 am
Haz1558

sprite - there are major concerns still with the breed, although a recent programme made it look as though every dog was afflicted.
5:05 am

I know Haz, I have looked into that matter seriously before deciding. Both mother and father are tested and free of any of the diseases and handicaps.
5:05 am
Haz1558

Then you're grand. It's the breeders who stick their head in the sand who have to be avoided.

spaniel breeders tend to be either very very good, or awful, I've found - just in my experience

5:07 am
MonkeyGames

Hi again folks!
5:08 am
sprite

it totally depends on if they are in it for the money, or because they are crazy about the breed and delight in having an occasional nest. We wanted one of the latter, and guarantees on the health of both lineages.
5:08 am
sprite

hi MonkeyG :)
5:08 am

bye lyn and Haz
5:09 am
Haz1558

She has got over his disappointment over not getting any Get Well cards. 'Does nobody care?' she asked me plaintively.
5:09 am
Haz1558

sprite - English doesn't use the term 'nest' - it's a litter.
5:09 am
sprite

thanks. Nests are only for birds then?
5:10 am
Haz1558

Yes, but birds have clutches.
5:10 am
MonkeyGames

Even that is just the thing they lay the eggs in. The babies are called a "brood". The eggs are called a "clutch".
5:10 am
Haz1558

Nests are what they live in, and they have a clutch of eggs.
5:10 am
sprite

lol. Ok, those are the hardest traps to avoid. Words that are the same in dutch and english, but with a totally different meaning. Nest = bird cluthing place then.
5:11 am

Indeed. When we first got here and I asked a man working in a restaurant wher ethe bathroom was, he told me, "Enter the trap"...
5:11 am

Be careful what bird places you clutch, though.
5:11 am
Haz1558

Bye!
5:11 am

roflol MonkeyG! Oh, so logical a mistake.
5:12 am
MonkeyGames

That IS where we get "trap door" in English, because of the stairs.
5:12 am
sprite

for the others: trap in dutch is stairs.
5:13 am
MonkeyGames

Other words we get straight from the Dutch include ganway and gangplank, and platform.
5:13 am
sprite

we got platform from the english, I think?
5:14 am
MonkeyGames

"flat shape" in Dutch... so I think you started it!
5:15 am
sprite

plat is dutch. But form should have become vorm then :)
5:15 am
MonkeyGames

True...
5:15 am

But really you tend to say "spoor" and so forth...

you were lucky the man knew what you meant by bathroom btw. He might have send you to the badkamer.

Haz1558

Have you been forgiven for not being Percy Thrower?
6:12 am
Atalante

I doubt husband has even noticed
6:12 am
Haz1558

Or are you too young to remember Percy?
6:12 am
Becca Lorum

i clearly can't type today!
6:12 am
Atalante

I can kind of vaguely remember him
6:12 am
Becca Lorum

everyone remebers Percy, Haz
6:13 am

6:13 am
Haz1558

6:14 am
Atalante

lol I doubt he'd notice that either
6:14 am
hurshy

why didn't he call it Blue Percy
6:14 am
Haz1558

Blue Percy sounds too pornographic.
6:14 am
hurshy

i only have one K :(
6:15 am
Haz1558

Blue Peter is another British institution. A children's programme that has run for 500 years. Percy was an invited guest sometimes.
6:15 am
hurshy

6:15 am
Becca Lorum

Blue Peter is a very long-running children's tv prog here
6:15 am
lshult

it's no good....still can't get the re9?
6:16 am
Becca Lorum

ooh, just realised i'm over half way!
6:16 am
Haz1558

Ishult - begin with the re5/10 that looks backward, then add the first letters of the book that gives the meanings of words.
6:16 am
hurshy

speaking of children's progs, i don't understand why PBS isn't showing mr rogers reruns. it would be new to each new generation of kids
6:16 am
Atalante

odd word!
6:17 am
Haz1558

And that would be unusual in babble because....?
6:17 am
Atalante

not saying it's unusual. just commenting!
6:17 am
lshult

finally got it, ty haz
6:18 am
Haz1558

You're welcome.
6:18 am
hurshy

do all the top O's start with same 1st 3 letters?
6:18 am
Haz1558

But you're right, it looks unusual in structure or something. Dictionary. com couldn't raise enough interest to give a definition.
6:19 am
Atalante

I could understand something like re9ion more
6:19 am
Haz1558

I don't have them all yet, hurshy, but you'd think so.
6:19 am
hurshy

there's inter**** so why NOT re9?
6:20 am
nDanLia

if you didn't catch, its def is to extrapolate backward
6:20 am

6:24 am
Atalante

6:24 am
Becca Lorum

6:24 am
Haz1558

If you think Hobbit's bad, imagine what the Peke sounds like.
6:24 am
Haz1558

She frequently sleeps with her eyes open. It's a bit strange looking.
6:25 am
Atalante

awwww becca
6:25 am
Atalante

it's really freaky looking. I wish they wouldn't do it
6:25 am
nDanLia

well, if you have an or6 (not on the board), then plural it. hint: the singular ends with a sometimes vowel

8:21 am
FMitch

Drinks are on Annie tonight then
8:22 am
Anniebrook

Judi, mis-read your chat...I did run
8:22 am
Anniebrook

Yes, drinks are on me!!! I never win..but this was the second time I won at roulette, the last time I won over a $100 at Mohegan Sun
8:22 am
Judi

Glad you had good luck. I'm not a gambler. Prefer to stay out of those places all together.
8:23 am
Judi

Where did you win your 90?
8:24 am
Anniebrook

Trump Plaza in AC....and I lost my glasses and someone turned them in at Security and I got them back..now that is lucky
8:24 am
Anniebrook

We go 2 or 3 times a year and at the rate of going it is fun
8:24 am
Judi

Wow! You must have been carrying your rabbit's foot and your four leaf clover.
8:25 am
Haz1558

Please tell me that you weren't wearing your nun's habit. The repercussions could be awful.

Haz1558

Good afternoon/morning all!
8:25 am
Anniebrook

Haz, I have to confess I was and no one messes with a Jewish nun...let me tell you
8:25 am
Judi

My 85 year old MIL goes to Turning Stone in NY. She loses track of how much money she plays/loses. My BIL is working on limiting her fun money.
8:26 am
Haz1558

People may have thought that it was Sister Act 54.
8:26 am
Anniebrook

LOL
8:27 am
Anniebrook

Judi, your MIL would best be getting another hobby
8:27 am
Judi

I don't know which is scarier, Annie: her gambling or her driving to the casino.
8:29 am
elder

Good afternoon everyone.
8:29 am
FMitch

8:29 am
Haz1558

Good afternoon elder.
8:29 am
Anniebrook

I agree FM and Hi Elder
8:29 am
FMitch

Hello elder :)
8:30 am
Judi

Yes, FM. She is adorable. However, she does have depression issues and is diabetic. She also does not eat properly, so she keeps us on our toes worrying.
8:30 am
elder

hello girls and boys. A good grid today.
8:31 am
Judi

Hi, elder!
8:31 am
Haz1558

It's got a lot more going for it than some of the previous grids we've had.
8:31 am
FMitch

It is elder, much fun after all the tiddly little ones.
8:31 am
elder

Haz, is Spangle leaping around a bit more today?.
8:31 am
Haz1558

Oh, she's in fine form again,thanks elder.
8:32 am
Haz1558

She got a steroid injection the other evening and it has helped enormously.
8:33 am
Anniebrook

Haz, why did Spangle need a steroid injection?
8:33 am
Sandieangel

Any ideas for the tr8 plz anyone?
8:33 am
elder

That's good.They tend to bounce back quickly, especially after steroids. So no infection or something embedded.
8:34 am
Haz1558

She was in a lot of pain on Tuesday afternoon, not wanting to walk and looking out of sorts. She probably had jarred something, though I don't remember her doing anything strange.
8:34 am
Judi

No tr8 yet, Sandie. Working on it.
8:35 am
elder

FMitch, isn't the weather again, glorious for October. getting colder, but so nice to see the sun.
8:35 am
Haz1558

tr8/55 - first three letters could be 'decay' reworked, next part looks like a bunch of singers, but use a different consonant on the end.
8:35 am
FMitch

I've got the tr8 just cant think of a clue
8:35 am
Anniebrook

Haz, I am very happy Spangle is back in form again...I am attached to her from afar
8:35 am
FMitch

phew Haz to the rescue
8:35 am
Haz1558

It relates to geometry...
8:35 am
Sandieangel

could you at least give me the 3rd letter - then it would help me work it out
8:36 am
Haz1558

I know, Annie, she has quite a few fans on here.
8:36 am
Haz1558

Sandie - three letters for decay. You know tr, fill in the vowel..
8:36 am
harpjane

Putrify, bloat up in the sun, etc.
8:38 am
elder

Haz, My Henry, was always in the wars, due to rushing through woods, nose to the ground, tail wagging so fast, leaping in and out of water, chasing things that were not there.)
8:38 am
Haz1558

Nor is it rut.
8:38 am

8:39 am
FMitch

Hello Une
8:39 am
Haz1558

That sounds like a perfect description of a spaniel! I love it when she gets the scent of something, she nearly snorts with the effort of getting as much odour in there as possible.
8:39 am
Uneaixoise

howdy, fmitch :-)
8:40 am
Haz1558

Thanks Une, she's fine again, much to my relief. Nothing does pathetic like a spaniel in pain.
8:40 am
Sandieangel

ahhhhh - I just can't get that tr8! what am I doing wrong!!!!!!
8:40 am
Uneaixoise

poor baby . . .
8:40 am
FMitch

come back to it later Sandie, let the clues mingle in the brain
8:41 am
elder

So true.They are so entertaining.
8:41 am
Haz1558

If you've got the first three letters, the next ones are the group of singers, but ending with a different consonant. Robotic ending might help.
8:42 am
Anniebrook

Sandie....the FIRST 3 letters are an anagram of "decay"
8:42 am
Haz1558

Or - tr, Scottish exclamation (three), robotic ending
8:43 am
Sandieangel

Got the anagram - I think
8:43 am
FMitch

Thas a lovely pic you have elder as yr icon
8:43 am

Jon Stewart is an exemplar of the Court Jester effect. Somehow a comedian asks all the questions and points out all the issues that the actual media ought to be covering but, inexplicably, aren't.
10:19 am
harpjane

there is a terrible blur between News and Entertainment in our culture but Jon S is not the problem
10:19 am
Atalante

I like Jon Stewart
10:20 am
harpjane

He's a comedian with an interest in news, there are other commentators out there who are inflammatory because it's good entertainment.
10:20 am

10:20 am
sandyx

does the chat censor out answers?
10:21 am
Vicuna

No, sandyx, so you have to be a little careful!
10:21 am
rururocks

It doesn't censor someone's ranting either...lol
10:21 am
Vicuna

(Actually it's really bad only when you put grid words in the chat log on purpose, but it amuses us to try to avoid saying any of them at all.)
10:22 am
harpjane

sorry, am i over the top?
10:22 am

I didn't think there was any ranting going on at the moment. Perhaps ruru was speaking theoretically?
10:22 am

yes... not including this crowd
10:23 am

don't get me started, i'm capable of a pretty good rant! but the grid's keeping me busy today

Vicuna

(That's the only one I have so far.)
10:26 am
rururocks

cr 8 a plural of little animals
10:26 am
FMitch

ke7 and 8 have the same meaning too
10:26 am
rururocks

or kids sometimes
10:26 am
rururocks

could I have a clue on the ao 6?
10:27 am
Vicuna

ao6 - starts like heart artery, ends like one-who-does
10:28 am
Atalante

are the a's all ad apart from the ao?
10:28 am
Vicuna

Mine are, but I'm still one a short.
10:28 am
FMitch

yup
10:28 am
Atalante

me too :)
10:29 am

10:29 am
Vicuna

Let's see, I've got 2 snakes and 3 loves. What do you have?
10:29 am
Vicuna

I mean 4 loves.
10:29 am
FMitch

the only one that doesnt follow a pattern in the ad6/27
10:30 am
Atalante

2 snakes and 3 loves and some babblers!
10:30 am
Vicuna

Aha, there's the last. Okay, you need pt, probably.
10:30 am
rururocks

one is a junky
10:30 am
Atalante

duh. ty Vi
10:30 am
rururocks

2 snakes, 1 junky , and several lovers...sounds like danielle steel
10:30 am
Atalante

that's twisty
10:30 am
Vicuna

lol
10:30 am
Atalante

do you think ad5ies are nurseries for baby snakes?
10:31 am
Vicuna

Sounds reasonable to me, Ata.
10:31 am
Atalante

I thought so
10:32 am
Vicuna

And you could make another word for herpetologist...
10:32 am
Vicuna

One who studies colubridae specifically, if that's the right family.
10:33 am
Atalante

ooooh yes
10:33 am
Vicuna

Or the right spelling of the right family, for that matter.
10:33 am
Atalante

right spelling, I know
10:34 am
sandyx

do spanish words count?
10:34 am
Vicuna

Nope, viperidae, says Britannica. Oh well.
10:34 am
Atalante

oh well
10:34 am
Atalante

I suppose that makes sense
10:34 am
Vicuna

Some do, some don't sandyx. In theory only English words, but a fair smattering of Spanish are accepted, no one knows why. So it's always worth trying!
10:35 am
Atalante

and French, Greek, Latin, you name it
10:36 am
Vicuna

But seldom German!
10:36 am
Atalante

I declare my last words invisible
10:36 am
Vicuna

Also, all currencies in whatever language.
10:36 am
Vicuna

Last word? Woohoo!
10:36 am
Atalante

10:44 am
Vicuna

Oh gosh, it's only 11:45! I just ate my lunch because I thought it was after noon. Well, I guess now I'll just have to eat another lunch.
10:44 am
Atalante

looool I did exactly the same thing. had lunch at 11:30
10:45 am
FMitch

10:47 am
rururocks

10:47 am
Atalante

I haven't! clue pls!
10:47 am
Vicuna

Then you can find di8, too.
10:48 am
FMitch

true but I need to sort out what I am having for dinner
10:48 am
Vicuna

di7 - imagne a word meaning more like a book that gives definitions of words
10:48 am
rururocks

got them both
10:48 am
Vicuna

di8 would be most like that book
10:48 am
Atalante

ooh!
10:48 am
Vicuna

Ah well. I guess there's never a bad time to think about food.
10:48 am
rururocks

good clue.. or a single ruler of a country
10:49 am
Atalante

never heard of those before, I don't think
10:49 am
rururocks

10:49 am
Vicuna

10:49 am
Vicuna

Sheesh, I still have about a thousand d's to go.
10:50 am

11:00 am
Vicuna

11:00 am
Vicuna

Cavorting with my last E, I guess, Ata.

Atalante

11:01 am
Vicuna

11:01 am
Atalante

yep, and it's "do again" word
11:02 am

11:02 am
Atalante

11:03 am

Not really a set pattern, it varies a little bit. This afternoon we headed up to playing fields so that she could have a little run around.
11:14 am

She did. And there was something fascinating in the long grass judging by her insistence on sniffing long and hard.
11:16 am
Haz1558

or8 - or plus a slight reworking of 'to get up again'
11:16 am
FMitch

Hi Haz wb.
11:16 am
Atalante

bound to be. long grass is always good to sniff
11:17 am
Haz1558

It's a plural apparatus for showing the position of planets, if definition helps for or8.
11:17 am
Haz1558

ao6 -ao plus most of what connects the arm to the hand.

I went through my insurance policy with a critical eye today, by the way. Fopund that they cover "movement advice". Half a day on the phone later, turns out a fitness center will call me within a few days and set me up an appointment for exercise training based around not overworking my injuries and losing weigh. Cool!
12:38 pm
MonkeyGames

WeighT. Losing weigh is what happens in the doldrums. Sorry.

Made an appointment with an accupuncturist too for my 500 Euros worth of alternative therapy. They wantto play hard ball over the physiotherapy, fine-- I will uncover and use everything I am entitled to. I think that includes someone to clean my house while my back is so bad.

Sadly my BMI is just 3% lower than required for them to send me to a weight loss clinic... I opted to just keep losing instead of gaining 3% to make them pay for it.

Lack of confidence mostly I think, she is a lot more dependant on me than I had thought she would be, after all the foster babies she was involved with I expected it all to have rubbedoff, which of course, it hasn't, being her own baby and her first !
2:21 pm

Oh, poor girl. I'm sure you're doing all you can to help without letting her feel that you do it better than her. It takes a while to settle into motherhood, doesn't it?
2:23 pm

does it also have to do with the "old folks", karys?
2:23 pm

(I didn't want to jump in when it was Karys who had been asked)
2:25 pm

oh, crud, I don't have an re5/10 yet...will hunt for it first!
2:25 pm
Karys

but I already had clued it to someone using your name Haz !

re5/10 fashion looks to inspiration from the past, if that helps.

I know, it changes every month or so, but she is getting more confident as we go on and I am trying to encourage her to use her instincts.
2:30 pm

Karys...I found that when helping my daughter with her little one, it went over better when I said something like, "I'm not sure, but you might try this..."
2:30 pm
Pinikula

yes, mlf
2:31 pm
Karys

Yes pini...it's just finding the right words... but then, it's been the same most of their lives hasn't it ?

We are talking about going to Stage 3 restrictions which means no outside watering at all...so send some over here please
2:47 pm
Haz1558

It just shows how different our lives are, doesn't it? With us a drought is declared after about 6 weeks of no rain!
2:47 pm
Karys

6 weeks, Haz...more like 6 days !
2:48 pm
Uneaixoise

we've had nice off and on rain all day and everything is soooo GREEN!

I thought I'd use understatement.

Karys

and does it all smell nice Une ?
2:48 pm
nancethefan

i know karys - we were high school sweethearts & his depression began in 1982 - 10 years after we were married. it has been that long before someone has been able to help him.
2:48 pm
Haz1558

Don't talk to me about green. The amount of moss we have at the minute is ridiculous!
2:49 pm
Karys

Thoughts will be with you Nance.... you are making me smile as we talk !... please give him good wishes
2:50 pm
Uneaixoise

At least it's not as bad as last year . . . there were lakes that were so low, archeologists came in to stand "in the lake" and study the various tiers uncovered in the banks

It was anice grid today

Hi all.....clue please for tr8/55 please?
2:54 pm
Haz1558

Hello Flask - tr, three letters for Scottish exclamation, finish with robotic ending
2:54 pm
Karys

Hi Flask
2:54 pm
Vicuna

Hello, folks!
2:54 pm
Karys

Hello Vicuna
2:55 pm
KatieMcG

still laughing about the puppy and donkey story from yesterday
2:55 pm
Atalante

hi all. I've come to avoid the trauma of the Hamiltons
2:55 pm
debjed

hello everyone. does anyone have a clue for the H?
2:55 pm
Flask1

Sorry Haz...am not getting it!
2:56 pm
Vicuna

Hello. Here avoidance is our speciality.
2:56 pm
KatieMcG

The hamiltons?
2:56 pm
Vicuna

hu + adj ending to make a Latin word
2:56 pm
Haz1558

Okay, try three letters of decay rearranged, follow it with a group of singers but change the last consonant (last three letters are the robot ending)
2:56 pm
Atalante

neil and christine hamilton *shudders*
2:57 pm
KatieMcG

What are they on?
2:57 pm
Haz1558

Oh Katie - the puppy woman? Apparently the card hadn't just been signed by people - messages of support as well.
2:57 pm
Atalante

some awful programme about most annoying couples. he is describing her butt crack
2:58 pm
KatieMcG

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
2:58 pm
Atalante

exactly
2:58 pm
Vicuna

Support for the puppy or the woman?
2:58 pm
Haz1558

Yes indeedy.
2:59 pm
KatieMcG

Haz - laughing again, I am indeed and evil person, at least in the confessional prayers this week I won't be scratting round for what to pray about
2:59 pm
Haz1558

Support for the puppy, of course. Apparently she was a regular at the surgery until a few years ago. She used to write poetry for the vet after every visit.
2:59 pm
debjed

sorry not getting the H
2:59 pm
Vicuna

Wow! That's spectacular!
3:00 pm
KatieMcG

That and the ashes of the cat being enough for a donkey has kept me going through a long day :-)
3:00 pm
Vicuna

There once was a vet from...
3:00 pm
Haz1558

She took her custom elsewhere when the vet refused to do an operation on a very elderly dog - a nasty letter came instead. The vet who dealt with the puppy isn't sure which is going to be worse, a poem from her or a letter.
3:00 pm
Atalante

a poem
3:00 pm
nancethefan

guess who was on brb without saying brb? my crazy old self - lol
3:00 pm
KatieMcG

the poem they kept coming at least the letter was only once
3:01 pm
Haz1558

That's what I think as well, Ata. It means she'll be back.
3:01 pm
Karys

yummy - ok & hb
3:01 pm

3:02 pm
Haz1558

Did I ever tell you about the grateful owners of a Chinese restaurant in the town?
3:02 pm
Vicuna

But I don't know where's he's from!
3:02 pm
KatieMcG

dare I ask?
3:02 pm
Atalante

no!!!
3:03 pm
Haz1558

One of our younger vets assisted at the whelping of their Dobermann bitch. They were so pleased that they insisted on inviting him and his girlfriend for a free meal.
3:03 pm
Haz1558

All was going fine until the owners brought out the box with all the puppies to let them see how well they were progressing..
3:04 pm
Vicuna

(The suspense is killing me!)
3:04 pm
Atalante

There was a young vet from Ballymena
Who had a very long weiner
3:04 pm

3:04 pm
KatieMcG

blue from holding breath
3:05 pm
Haz1558

This was in the middle of a busy Chinese restaurant.
3:05 pm
Vicuna

Atalante gave a shout,
"Please wave it about!"
And the poem got even obscener!
3:05 pm
nancethefan

ut o - weiner talk - lol

3:07 pm
k21eyes

I loved tagleword
3:07 pm
nancethefan

hey 21
3:07 pm
Atalante

at least the restaurant didn't say they'd used a puppy in the dinner
3:07 pm
Vicuna

Haz, I am having lovely visions of puppies getting loose and running rampant.
3:07 pm
nancethefan

me too darn it
3:07 pm
nancethefan

lol vic
3:07 pm
k21eyes

went into wothdrawls
3:07 pm

I'm more worried that the other people thought they were choosing their dinner :-)
3:08 pm
nancethefan

do y'all every watch the Dog Whisperer on natgeo/com?
3:08 pm
Atalante

lol yes Katie
3:08 pm
Haz1558

I know. 'Something not from the menu'
3:08 pm
Vicuna

Would they prepare it at the table like some of those chefs do?
3:08 pm
nancethefan

ever - not every - typo - sorry
3:08 pm
k21eyes

3:08 pm
KatieMcG

He was on an episode of bones the other week
3:09 pm
Karys

nice ice cream.... back now
3:09 pm
nancethefan

i saw that - i really like him
3:09 pm
Haz1558

That's right, Karys. Mention ice-cream at every opportunity.
3:09 pm
Karys

oops...sorry !
3:09 pm
Atalante

ice cream? good point. brb
3:10 pm
nancethefan

(it was nice though, I don't usually like ice cream very much )
3:10 pm
Haz1558

You see what you've started?
3:10 pm
KatieMcG

we have it over hear on sky but I have never watched it
3:10 pm
KatieMcG

enough with the icecream!!!
3:11 pm
Haz1558

I do have some ice-cream. Not much left in the carton. It would be a shame to neglect it, wouldn't it?
3:11 pm
Vicuna

mmmmm.... ice cream....
3:11 pm
Karys

Well, it's Friday night...indulgent night, here on my own !
3:11 pm
Karys

There you are Haz....indulgent night for you too
3:12 pm
mockers

meh
3:12 pm
KatieMcG

I have soya icecream - if I close my eyes and try really really hard I may think that it is haagen daas?
3:12 pm
Haz1558

Well, if you're on your own.... I'm on my own as well. Nobody need know.
3:12 pm
Karys

or Ben & Jerry's Katie
3:13 pm
Haz1558

You must have a powerful imagination, Katie.
3:13 pm
KatieMcG

I'll wait until the wine kicks in ;-)
3:13 pm
Vicuna

Soy ice cream is for weevils.
3:14 pm
Karys

That'll be later, when I watch QI
3:14 pm
Haz1558

Will the ice-cream not curdle if you mix it with wine?
3:14 pm
Karys

the wine, I mean !
3:14 pm
Vicuna

(To be honest, I don't think I've ever had it. I suppose it *might* be good.)
3:14 pm
Haz1558

Or is it so far removed from anything dairy as to defy curdling?
3:14 pm
KatieMcG

can't eat the real stuff, it's like decaf coffee, after a while you forget what the real thing tastes like
3:14 pm
nancethefan

did the brb slacking again -- so sorry
3:15 pm
Vicuna

'Tis better that way.
3:15 pm
Haz1558

Karys, have you been watching Stephen Fry in America?
3:15 pm
bichon

I know what that's like. I'm a type II diabetix\c. To me diet soda tastes likethe real thing
3:15 pm
Haz1558

nance - it's okay, really. Nobody is expected to report their every move.
3:15 pm
bichon

*diabetic
3:15 pm
KatieMcG

Actually the milk curdles to the icecream might as well, but I had 5 years with no icecream so I actually quite like it, the excitement I had when they branched out into neopolitan was really quite sad
3:15 pm
Karys

No, Haz... was meaning too, just so many things got in the way
3:16 pm
wildcat17

awww katie you have my sympathies
3:16 pm
wildcat17

I can't have milk either
3:16 pm
Karys

LOL Katie
3:16 pm
Haz1558

It's very good, Karys - I think it's repeated later in the week. He has a fine turn of phrase.
3:16 pm
Haz1558

How will the dairy industry survive with all these non-milk drinkers?
3:17 pm
Karys

He has indeed, I really enjoy him, I have managed to get bits of it
3:17 pm
KatieMcG

I'm lucky wild I can have normal cheese now so progress indeed, I really missed brie cheese.
3:17 pm
Vicuna

I drink loads of milk... and cheese, and ice cream, and yoghurt. So I'll keep them in business.
3:17 pm
wildcat17

good for you
3:17 pm
wildcat17

thanks vic
3:17 pm
wildcat17

thanks vic
3:17 pm
KatieMcG

i also had to go teetotal for 18 months so things are much better now
3:17 pm
Atalante

I couldn't live without dairy
3:18 pm
wildcat17

oh my
3:18 pm
Vicuna

Sorry to rub it in, wildcat! I was just trying to quiet Haz's concern!
3:18 pm
Karys

Not bothered about milk, but cheese, now, there's another thing .....
3:18 pm
Haz1558

That's a relief. I'd hate to think all those cows were ruminating and lactating for nothing.
3:18 pm
wildcat17

it's ok vic ... I live with milk-drinkers
3:18 pm
wildcat17

I can handle it
3:19 pm
Atalante

I can live without cheese if I really have to, but milk is a necessity
3:19 pm
KatieMcG

No dairy, no caffine, no alcohol, had to cut out wheat for a while but that was the first thing I reintroduced.
3:19 pm
wildcat17

I shouldn't have wine either, but some things are hard to give up
3:19 pm
wildcat17

so I get sick every time I have it
3:20 pm
Haz1558

Was this for dietary reasons, Katie, or were you just feeling like being a martyr?
3:21 pm
Vicuna

I had a good friend who loved chocolate more than anything in the world, and was allergic to it. It was absolutely tragic, just like Romeo and Juliet.
3:21 pm
KatieMcG

I had IBS which is now undercontrol but at times of stress it kicks off again. The dairy, alcohol and caffine are trigger foods, so I'm not intollerant but they don't help if I am ill. Ice cream is a complete non starter no matter how well I am.
3:21 pm
wildcat17

me too Katie
3:22 pm
Haz1558

Well, then you're right to keep things under control, Katie. Keep eating the soya ice-cream!
3:22 pm
wildcat17

what did you find to be the biggest help Katie?
3:22 pm
KatieMcG

the test I had to go through!! and then it was just 'well llive with it' which at the time (when I was obviously very stressed) wasn't as helpful as it could me
3:22 pm
Karys

shall you be watching Stephen Fry tonight Haz ?
3:22 pm
KatieMcG

My family wild
3:23 pm
Haz1558

I'll have to have a look at the schedule. I usually help to solve lots of crime on a Friday night.
3:24 pm
Atalante

does spangle help sniffing out clues?
3:24 pm
Haz1558

Oh look. I may have to miss Katie and Peter, the next chapter. What a shame.
3:24 pm
Karys

I was just interested in the 'fine turn of phrase' !
3:24 pm
KatieMcG

I know that sounds soppy but for example Christmas two years ago my Mum searched for soya icecream on the internet and then sourced a store locally where she could buy it (phoning loads of shops to do this) all so I could have some with my Christmas dinner. It's hard to be stressed when someone loves you so much
3:24 pm
wildcat17

awwwww (I'm tearing up)
3:25 pm
Atalante

awwwwwwww
3:25 pm
Vicuna

That's lovely, Katie.
3:25 pm
Karys

That's Mum's for you !
3:25 pm
KatieMcG

Haz I'm surprised that you don't automatically record katie and peter, such classy viewing
3:25 pm
lynxxx

aren't Mums lovely
3:26 pm
wildcat17

gotta go bbl
3:26 pm
Haz1558

Classy - there's a word you can't use for those two.
3:26 pm
nancethefan

bye & hb wild
3:26 pm
Atalante

brilliant line on have I got news for you ... talking about Paul McCartney's waxwork head being found by a homeless guy on a train
3:27 pm
KatieMcG

Only draw back now is when I am ill I automatically get an upset tummy, and if I have an upset tummy my boss (who I worked with when I was really ill) thinks I am stressed. I think we are getting there on the understanding
3:27 pm
Atalante

"Not the first time he's been picked up by a tramp and ended up giving them lots of money!
3:27 pm
KatieMcG

I'm watching that too Ata, what a dreadful waxwork!!
3:27 pm
Karys

LOL Ata !!!
3:27 pm
lynxxx

ROFL Ata
3:27 pm
Haz1558

Oooh. Who COULD they have been talking about?
3:28 pm
KatieMcG

Great scrabble joke with the letters
3:28 pm
Karys

You mean you can't guess Haz ?
3:28 pm
Atalante

I love this programme
3:29 pm
Haz1558

Oh I can guess alright.
3:29 pm
Vicuna

Haz has a mind of such pure refinement that speculation on this topic is impossible for her.
3:29 pm
Vicuna

Or maybe not.
3:29 pm
Haz1558

Who do you think they were talking about in this poem - clue - Paul McCartney and ?
3:30 pm
KatieMcG

There is a great photo of katie (of katie & peter)i n heat this week it seems Jordon is back!
3:30 pm
Haz1558

Talk amongst yourselves while I try to remember it.
3:30 pm
Atalante

who is Alexander Armstrong? what does he do?
3:31 pm
Karys

He's an actor who does comedy too Ata
3:31 pm
Atalante

apart from host HIGNFY
3:31 pm
Haz1558

They lay upon the riverbank, he filled her ear with kisses, he undid her suspender belt, her leg fell in the river.
3:31 pm

ROFL!!!!!!!!
3:31 pm
Karys

He was n that thing that was a bit like 'Friends'
3:31 pm
Atalante

LMAO
3:32 pm
KatieMcG

Cold Feet?
3:33 pm
Karys

I have never watched 'Little Britain'
3:33 pm
Karys

I think that was it Katie...thank you
3:33 pm
Atalante

it can be funny
3:33 pm
lynxxx

I am being spoken at - BBL after walk
3:33 pm
KatieMcG

Neither have I I just turned it over!!
3:33 pm
Atalante

yay stew!
3:33 pm
Haz1558

Nor have I, Karys, the trailers don't do anything for me.
3:34 pm
Karys

Me neither.... but it has a big following
3:34 pm
KatieMcG

it was the granny who kept weeing, I disapproved so much I felt like a prude
3:35 pm
mockers

anyone find any of the 9 letter words?
3:35 pm
Yarrrrrrrrrr

do9
3:36 pm
Vicuna

Have some Prude Pride, Katie. The world needs more prudes! lol
3:36 pm
Haz1558

I'd have been a disapproving prude right along with you.
3:37 pm
Karys

me too... and I hate bad language... I don't see the point. My Dad always said it was a sign of a small mind, not being able to find the more appropriate word.
3:38 pm
KatieMcG

jamie swore quite a lot in Ministry of Food, it just seemed so unneccesary
3:39 pm
Karys

And it would appear his Mum agreed Katie !
3:39 pm
Haz1558

There's beginning to be a backlash against the use of bad language just for its own sake. Comedians who rely on repeating one word and its variations are just lazy. And yes, Ata's friend Jamie has attracted a lot of criticism for his bad language.
3:39 pm
Atalante

jamie is a fake with his language and accent
3:39 pm
kakamolaka

do 9?
3:40 pm
Vicuna

I've never heard of any such backlash occurring in the US, I'm afraid.
3:40 pm
Haz1558

Those who are shaky of mind and body.
3:40 pm
Karys

I would not watch Jonathan Ross last week, because I knew it would be all swearing.
3:40 pm
Haz1558

(do9 that is)
3:40 pm
Atalante

Gordon Ramsey is annoying
3:41 pm
Haz1558

I agree, Karys, plus he doesn't so much interview people as allow them to be on the same stage as him.
3:41 pm
Karys

( or it could have been the week before )
3:41 pm
mockers

There wouldn't be a backlash in the US, would there? Seeing as how their IQ average is incredibly low.
3:41 pm
Karys

Yet, he seems to be an intelligent man !
3:41 pm
KatieMcG

I'm now on that ata I'm watching to see if Chris Moyles is on as he has my Mum's friends daughter round to dinner and couldn't decide if he was going to go on or not
3:42 pm
Vicuna

Well, mockers, there are certainly some cultural differences, and areas of appalling ignorance and/or lack of interest, but I'm not sure that's the same thing as low IQ which is, after all, a measure only of how well one scores on an IQ test.
3:43 pm
Karys

I wonder if they think we watch them more because of the swear words.
3:43 pm
KatieMcG

mockers are you from the USA?
3:43 pm
Atalante

I think they think its trendy and cool
3:43 pm
KatieMcG

Actually Gordon hasn't sworn much yet
3:44 pm
Haz1558

Yet...
3:44 pm
Atalante

he does
3:44 pm
unagatasalvaje

i think my brain stopped working. :-S
3:44 pm
mockers

Unfortunately the majority vote put an idiot like George Bush in office... which is pretty much a reliable reflection on US intelligence quotient.
3:44 pm
katya

and blair and brown are btter?
3:44 pm
Atalante

gordon can't exist without swearing
3:44 pm
katya

shush mockers we have a halfwit in office too
3:44 pm
Haz1558

This isn't zenmed in disguise?
3:45 pm
Atalante

I thought one of the big issues with the US elections is that the preseident wasn't deided by a majority vote?
3:45 pm
Atalante

no, because I'd beEVIL
3:45 pm
Haz1558

Be smug Atalante and we'll know for sure.
3:45 pm
mockers

And you have all those American idiots that are supporting McBush (MCcain...). Voting their VALUES instead of ISSUES...
3:45 pm
Vicuna

It is rather depressing, that's true, mockers. I'm just not sure that this sort of poor leader-choosing is unique to the US.

3:45 pm
Atalante

*SMUG*
3:46 pm
Vicuna

And yes, you're right, Ata. Technically it isn't really what the majority of voters vote for, it's the electoral college nonsense.
3:46 pm
Haz1558

Try being smugger.
3:46 pm
Atalante

nah, not Zenmed
3:46 pm
Atalante

ok. I'm horribly smug still because my book has been published. *SMUG*
3:46 pm
KatieMcG

Can I be the smuggest of the lot?
3:47 pm
Haz1558

Is this the smuggest you've ever been, do you think, Ata?
3:47 pm
Atalante

no! that's my job! :P
3:47 pm
Vicuna

It's a smug-off!
3:47 pm
Atalante

um ... maybe ...
3:47 pm
Haz1558

Why, what do you have to be smug about, Katie?
3:47 pm
KatieMcG

*desperately thinking*
3:48 pm
mockers

I live on a tropical island paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. *SMUG*
3:48 pm
Haz1558

It has to be better than having a book published.
3:48 pm
KatieMcG

ahhh one of the managers at work said my paper was one of the best he had ever read :-)
3:48 pm
Vicuna

Uh oh, I think the big money's on Ata for the Queen of Smug.
3:48 pm
Haz1558

Oh, that's good! Pay rise?
3:48 pm
Vicuna

Odds get better for Katie...
3:49 pm
Vicuna

ANd Haz to the PB!
3:49 pm
KatieMcG

Oh I wish, they said 'isn't she good' whilst paying me at the band lower!!
3:49 pm
Haz1558

And I was doing so well. Not smug.
3:49 pm
Vicuna

(And me skating awfully close, but getting by on a technicality.)
3:49 pm
Atalante

I've had a paper published in the best scientific journal in the world
3:49 pm
KatieMcG

On the bright side I'm half way to getting the £19m I need for my project
3:50 pm
KatieMcG

I've had papers published in Estates Gazette if that counts
3:50 pm
Vicuna

And Ata once again secures her title of Supreme Smug!
3:50 pm
Haz1558

Only 19 million?
3:50 pm
Karys

I think I have the best.... I get to retire in 7 weeks exactly !!!!
3:50 pm
Haz1558

I've had letters published in the Ballymena Times.
3:51 pm
Haz1558

You should really go to PB, but congratulations Karys!
3:51 pm
Karys

and then I can do exactly as I wish !!!
3:51 pm
KatieMcG

Karys wins the smuggness test, Haz comes close with the Ballymena Times
3:51 pm
Karys

oops
3:51 pm
mockers

Did I mention I own the island? *SMUG*
3:51 pm
Vicuna

Oh no, mockers is making a play for the title!!!
3:51 pm
Vicuna

But which island is it?
3:52 pm
Haz1558

It's not Richard Branson, is it? He's pretty smug.
3:52 pm
Haz1558

Or Donald Trump? That hair wipes out any smug.
3:52 pm
Karys

Haz.... I have got to the 'I Shall Wear Purple' stage... so I don't care !
3:52 pm

Are you kidding, Haz? You've GOT to be smug to be willing to let people see you with hair like that!
3:53 pm
Haz1558

I don't think he's so much smug as misguided.
3:53 pm
mockers

I acquired it from the Phillipines. It was uninhabited.
3:53 pm

Turmp has no possibility of being smug about his hair
3:54 pm
KatieMcG

My boss bought me 'I shall wear purple' five years ago when she thought I was repressed by my ex. She was right I now wear purple :-) very happy memories
3:54 pm
Vicuna

Interesting... That's not bad, mockers. Not bad at all... But I think you need at least a Calaban or two.
3:54 pm
Haz1558

Hello ruru - the voice of reason has arrived.

3:55 pm
Haz1558

st5/12 - describes a place inhabited by pig houses?
3:55 pm
mockers

Well... not until I got there.
3:55 pm
Vicuna

(Notice Ata making sure mockers can't get any island smug points without Ata getting some, too. Very saavy at the smug game, our Ata is.)
3:55 pm

3:58 pm
mockers

Haha none of my investments were in Real Estate, so they weren't touched by the bailout.
3:58 pm
Haz1558

NO natives to have their language rescued.
3:58 pm
Atalante

why would the bailout affect you on a remote island?
3:59 pm
Atalante

that's a shame
3:59 pm

I could see why someone named mockers could be smug...

Madrigals, the odd concerto?
4:16 pm
Atalante

um. I don't know. Paul McCartney?
4:17 pm
Haz1558

Oh yes, he'd be good. Although I think his voice isn't as good as it used to be.
4:17 pm
Haz1558

I'm sure he's worried about what I think.
4:17 pm

Haz1558

Oh, your project? Did they mention you by name?
4:20 pm
Atalante

it's a town in middle england
4:20 pm
Haz1558

That's one step up in the smug stakes.
4:20 pm
KatieMcG

I wish, they were talking about the recession coming and how much it had progressed in the last few years.
4:21 pm
KatieMcG

There was an advert on Canadian tv about Corby Toffee about 3 years ago.
4:21 pm
Haz1558

So, Jeremy Paxman isn't waiting to interview you?
4:21 pm
KatieMcG

Lol. I did do a media training course last week so I'm ready for him ;-)
4:22 pm
Atalante

I lived in Northampton for a while while doing my GCSEs ad A-levels and Corby was always the place to avoid LOL
4:22 pm
Haz1558

Have you noticed how grumpy Mr Paxman is these days? I'd try to get him in a better mood before being interviewed by him.
4:23 pm
Haz1558

He interviewed Heseltine last night and was really rude.
4:23 pm
Atalante

I'm not convinced by Jeremy Vine on Eggheads instead of Dermot
4:24 pm
Atalante

it could just be the Heseltine effect
4:24 pm
Haz1558

I haven't really watched it too often recently. Now CJ is the epitome of smug!
4:24 pm
KatieMcG

If you google kitt walker on google.co.uk you can find an article that I did on why it was good to live in Corby.
4:24 pm
Atalante

4:25 pm

4:25 pm
Atalante

I've got at least a whole page of google to myself :P
4:26 pm
KatieMcG

Thanks Ata, the only problem with changing my surname that I have to spell both first and surname instead of just the first :-)
4:26 pm
Atalante

4:26 pm
Haz1558

Oh, and a picture as well, Katie.
4:27 pm

4:34 pm
Atalante
