hey ata. i'm depressed.
3:29 am
Atalante

awww why?
3:29 am
Atalante

Haz! Good news! We finally have another supermarket in Faversham to rival the evil Tesco
3:30 am
Haz1558

Excellent! There's a good reason for hurshy not to be depressed.
3:30 am
hurshy

my husband probably has cancer (although it is also probably quite fixable), my sister's dog may have cancer, and my christmas gift plans keep getting messed up.
3:30 am
Atalante

I thought they hadn't decided it was cancer yet?
3:31 am
hurshy

they haven't decided. it's just the odds are high.
3:31 am
Haz1558

Then concentrate on the positive, it's probably fixable.
3:31 am
Atalante

sadness :( how is he coping?
3:32 am
Atalante

we have a Morrisons! it's so exciting. I went there this morning and it was lovely
3:32 am
hurshy

he's coping fine. if my sister's dog has bone marrow cancer, however... she will not cope fine. i am very worried.
3:32 am
Atalante

and at least you have Christmas plans to mess up :P I don't even have an oven LOL
3:33 am
Atalante

much sadness about the pup :(
3:33 am
Haz1558

Don't meet trouble halfway. The dog might be fine, your sister may cope better than you think, meanwhile you've wasted energy fretting about things you have no control over.
3:34 am
Atalante

good old Haz, ever practical :)
3:34 am
Haz1558

It's just that I have a daughter who could participate in the Worry Olympics.
3:34 am
hurshy

well when you wake up in the middle of the night and you find that you were outbid at the last minute in an auction that ended at 2:30 AM your time for the gift you were going to buy your nephew, it makes you cranky.
3:35 am
Haz1558

Her mind is full of 'what ifs'.
3:35 am
forwardbyfaith

anyone have the to7,32 - it's my last t word
3:35 am
Atalante

yes, that's really annoying
3:35 am
Haz1558

Then don't allow yourself to be outbid if it's going to upset you. Settle for buying things at a fixed price - less cause for anxiety.
3:36 am
Haz1558

forward - to the to5 add the first letters of the Russian Emperor.
3:36 am
hurshy

ok but i can't, it's vintage, the new ones are crappy.
3:36 am
Haz1558

Sorry, that's the other to7 - to7/32 - a hairdo, combine a weight with certainty.
3:37 am
Atalante

how HOW is sq6/27y not allowed?
3:37 am
Haz1558

Because enable has no imagination.
3:37 am
forwardbyfaith

thanks Haz
3:37 am
Atalante

obviously!!
3:37 am
Haz1558

You're welcome.
3:38 am
Atalante

what do you want to get him?
3:39 am
hurshy

well in the first place i wanted to get him an heirloom quality rocking horse, but it turned out that my sister's in laws are already saving one for him. so then i thought, i'll at least get him a sit n spin - that was the second of the two things i didn't have as a kid that i really really wanted. and now i'm outbid.
3:39 am
Atalante

awww Haz, Jordan dumped her boyfriend on live tv. isn't that nice
3:39 am
Haz1558

hurshy, I don't want to sound as though I dismiss all your worries, I know they're real to you. I just would like it if you could put some positive strategies in place to counteract the negative thoughts.
3:40 am
Haz1558

Ata, she's pure class, she just keeps demonstrating it.
3:40 am
Atalante

and there will always be another one to bid on - you'll just have to stay up and wait!
3:40 am
Atalante

isn't she just? and she wonders why people dislike her??
3:40 am
hurshy

there won't always, it has to be this certain brand, those were the really good ones. there might be another one before christmas and there might not.
3:41 am
Atalante

hopefully there will be
3:41 am
Haz1558

Then just remember that your nephew doesn't know that he might have had the toy you wanted. He'll be thrilled with whatever he gets. The aim is to please him.
3:41 am
hurshy

there better be. who ends an auction at 2:30 in the morning anyway?
3:42 am
Haz1558

Can we blame FM?
3:42 am
Atalante

sadistic sellers
3:42 am
Haz1558

Does she not set the rules for auctions?
3:42 am
Atalante

bound to
3:42 am
Haz1558

I think I remember something about her doing things like that. No wonder she had to move house.
3:44 am

Besides, there are more things to rejoice over. Tony Blair is NOT president of the EU.

Earlier as Alex boarded his flight to Australia he told waiting reporters: 'I'm definitely asking her to marry me.
'One idea is I make the proposal in front of the cameras on the show. But whatever happens I know this is right. I've never felt this way before.'
The source said: 'An hour before she appeared on air Jordan summoned him and told him it was over.
'She was fed up with him making money from her. Friends say he is devastated.'
Miss Price warned producers about her announcement just minutes before filming started.

Haz1558

Just know that they are all things to rejoice over. Especially John and Edward.
3:48 am
Atalante

Definitely
3:49 am
Haz1558

What other good news? Is the rumour true that Dr-G is to give us money back if he gives too many small grids in a row?
3:49 am
hurshy

one of my college friends, a professor, just got tenure.
3:49 am
Haz1558

Good for him/her!
3:50 am
hurshy

him.
3:50 am
hurshy

you guys would like him a lot.
3:50 am
Haz1558

Note how gender sensitive I was?
3:50 am
Atalante

Hobbit is finally asleep after bouncing half the night!
3:50 am
Haz1558

Is he tall, good looking and rich?
3:50 am
hurshy

yes, very good haz.
3:51 am
Haz1558

I probably should have been terribly politically correct and included pre-op transgenders and post-op transgenders but that would take up too much space.
3:52 am
hurshy

he is tall, he was ok looking in college, but has put on a lot of weight, and he's a professor so of course he's not rich. his wife, also my friend, is a pediatrician, but was unable to work for awhile due to a noncompete agreement with her boss who apparently went to scrabbler's old boss's school of human resource management.
3:52 am
Atalante

and people of both genders
3:53 am
Haz1558

Darn, it's hard to be inclusive, isn't it?
3:53 am
Haz1558

Oh well, at least if he's a professor he's bound to be threatened with intelligence.
3:53 am
hurshy

threatened?
3:54 am
Haz1558

Sense of humour?
3:54 am
Atalante

some professors aren't remotely intelligent
3:54 am
hurshy

oh, yes, very much good sense of humor, fun and funny guy.
3:54 am
Haz1558

Yes, one farmer once said of a lady vet who was doing work on his farm 'that girls is threatened with intelligence'. It was the closest he could come to complimenting her.
3:54 am
hurshy

and he and his wife have two sons.
3:55 am
Haz1558

Sense of humour is essential.
3:55 am
Atalante

loooool
3:55 am
hurshy

and i think the noncompete is over for the doctoring so things are looking good for them all around i think.
3:55 am
Atalante

how is the Spaghettina today?
3:56 am
Haz1558

She is flat out - her usual morning sleep to get over the trauma of the kennel.
3:56 am
Atalante

not kennel trauma!! it's a hard life
3:57 am
hurshy

i don't know what marty would do if i ever put him in a kennel. he was upset today (well yesterday) that i left him for two hours.
3:57 am
hurshy

his opinion is that i should never leave the house. ever.
3:58 am
Atalante

he'd get on with it like any other animal, then pay you back later
3:58 am
Haz1558

Spangle is accustomed to our cruelty and hardness of heart. For her, a dog's life is reality.
3:58 am
hurshy

well at least she's resigned to her fate
3:58 am
Atalante

poor unloved Spangle
3:59 am
Haz1558

That's right. She expects nothing better.
3:59 am
Haz1558

Just as long as we can stop her comparing notes with other dogs.
4:00 am
Atalante

I got Hobbit a pack of tripe sticks at morrisons today. I keep forgetting how FOUL those things are
4:00 am
Haz1558

If she found out that other dogs get fed and get to sleep inside, we might have trouble.
4:00 am
Haz1558

So, when we see dogs coming, I quicken the pace.
4:01 am
hurshy

how can you forget something like that? isn't there a reason that tripe has become used metaphorically as a synonym for drivel?
4:01 am
Atalante

this isn't just tripe though ... it's tripe sticks. even worse
4:01 am
Atalante

very sensible. hopefully she'll never talk to Hobbit
4:02 am
Haz1558

That would be the end. If she sees Hobbit's purple collar....
4:02 am
hurshy

and heaven forbid she ever find out about a cat's life.
4:02 am
Atalante

and matching purple lead!
4:03 am
Haz1558

No, cats will never stick around long enough to spill the beans. Or maybe she chases them because she resents them and their life of ease and comfort.
4:03 am
Haz1558

Matching purple lead..... They must never meet.
4:03 am
Atalante

Hobbit chased an egret this morning
4:04 am
Haz1558

Poor egret.
4:04 am
Atalante

she was very pleased with herself
4:04 am
Atalante

I, however, was not so pleased because the chase ended on the creek mudflats that are about 2m deep and STINK
4:05 am
Haz1558

Does her purple collar not be infused with perfumes to counteract the stink?
4:05 am
Atalante

It probably should be
4:05 am
Haz1558

That might be a good product. Dog collars with integrated air fresheners.
4:06 am
Haz1558

Dragons Den people would maybe give me some money.
4:06 am
Atalante

bound to
4:07 am
Sally-catlover

OK. Hi all, time to include my favourite joke in my profile - for dog and cat lovers.
4:07 am
Atalante

or pockets on the lead so you can release wafts of frgrance between you and the dog
4:07 am
Haz1558

Hello Sally!
4:07 am
Sally-catlover

Hi everyone.
4:08 am
Haz1558

Good thinking, Ata. Of course we'd have to make sure that we weren't threatening the ozone layer.
4:08 am
Atalante

cockers don't pee on the carpet!! LOL but I love that joke
4:08 am
Sally-catlover

So do I Ata - can't include the pics in my profile though.
4:09 am
Haz1558

It's very funny, just captures the breeds and their characteristics so well.
4:10 am
hurshy

are there any ST words?
4:11 am
Haz1558

No st words.
4:11 am
hurshy

good, then i'll stop trying to find some.
4:13 am
Haz1558

I've just noticed the time! I'd better go and get some things done. Nice to see you, and hurshy, try not to worry too much.
4:13 am
Atalante

bye dear! bye spaghettina!
4:13 am
hurshy

i'm not worrying, i'm just kinda mad
4:14 am
Sally-catlover

hurshy, been reading back in the chog. The antique element of the present probably has more meaning for you than your nephew.
4:15 am
Haz1558

Okay, just don't beat yourself up too much.
4:15 am
Sally-catlover

Bye Haz
4:15 am
Haz1558

Bye!
4:15 am
hurshy

it has more meaning for the laws of physics when he sits on a new one and it breaks because it's cheaply made...
4:17 am
Atalante

soem things aren't badly made today ...
4:17 am
hurshy

but this is - i read the consumer reviews - that's the whole reason i want to get the old one.
4:19 am
Atalante

:(
4:19 am
Atalante

get him a model of the Enterprise. much more important
4:20 am
Sally-catlover

I don't know how old your nephew is, but surely he will be happy whatever you get him.
4:20 am
hurshy

it would have to be a stuffed model, or he'd throw it and break it.
4:20 am
Atalante

bet you can get Make your own cuddly toy Enterprise kits!
4:21 am
hurshy

yes, yes, he will be happy, and i know this is no big deal in the long run but i am just annoyed at the moment
4:23 am
hurshy

and on top of that why isn't quora a word, my perennial Q peeve
4:23 am
Atalante

I know ...
4:23 am
Sally-catlover

Sounds to me as if you need chocolate today :-)
4:24 am
hurshy

yeah, i need chocolate.
4:26 am
Haz1558

Quick revisit - remembered a part of a Frasier episode where Frasier is distraught because a toy he had ordered for Freddie, 'The human brain' had been sent by mistake to a Mr Crane in Kennebunkport. Fearing that Christmas had been ruined he cries 'You know what this means?' Niles replies, 'Yes, the Cranes in Mayne have got your human brain'
4:26 am
Atalante

looooooooool
4:27 am
Atalante

love Niles
4:27 am
Sally-catlover

lol Haz
4:27 am
Haz1558

I know. I just treasure some of his lines. He says of Frasier 'He was already eminent when my eminence was merely imminent.'
4:28 am
Haz1558

Such brilliant writing and acting.
4:28 am
Haz1558

Anyway, this isn't getting my tasks completed, but had to share. Bye again!
4:31 am
Sally-catlover

Bye for now from me too. Have to dash, but be back later to finish.
4:31 am
hurshy

i liked the one where he was subbing on frasier's radio show and he said, "while frasier is a freudian, i am a jungian, so there'll be no blaming of mother today!"
4:34 am

I should have come here 4 hrs ago when I woke up. I struggled to sleep ever since, but I was comfy in my nest.
5:21 am
Scrabbler

5:22 am
Atalante

yes .......
5:23 am
Scrabbler

I bought lots of su4 cakes for my bird friends yesterday.
5:25 am
Atalante

ooo lucky them!
5:26 am
Atalante

how are all the bunbuns?
5:26 am
Scrabbler

I take good care of my bird friends year-round--always a buffet with su4 cakes and feeders all ov4 the yard.
5:26 am

hu 7 -- more like Attila
5:27 am
Atalante

how ridiculous
5:27 am
Scrabbler

Bunnies are sweet. Sebastian is now 7 yrs 6 mo and my oldest ever was Callie who died at 7 yrs 8 mo. I was cuddling him last night and told him to please live forever.
5:28 am

Hi BR--how chilly is it out there in your hammock?

5:45 am
Scrabbler

I often forget to do that, Ursh, and then panic.
5:49 am
Atalante

I'm going back to bed for a bit. guess what, I'm all shivery! Shivering is NOT helpful when you're trying to outline art using a 0.4mm pen!
5:49 am
Scrabbler

Go warm up and nap, Ata.
5:50 am
Frances

5:50 am
Atalante

5:50 am
Scrabbler

let me know
5:51 am
Scrabbler

Hi Frances. Speak up.
5:51 am
Atalante

will do! *poofs*
5:51 am
Frances

Hello Scrabbs. I'm in lurking mode. Sorry about that.
5:51 am
Frances

How are you?
5:52 am
Scrabbler

I am annoyed that I didn't sleep well overnight. I will be tired and cranky today.
5:52 am
Frances

Tired and cranky is not a good look.
5:54 am
Scrabbler

Well, I will try to not be cranky.
5:55 am
Merk

Are there quite a few words ending in that 'ish'?
5:55 am
Frances

I only have one so far Merk.
5:55 am
Scrabbler

I have just one: hu7 = adjective for Attila
5:56 am
Frances

That's the one.
5:56 am
Merk

I have that one, too, and it looks so good there I wondered if there would be mre.
5:56 am
Merk

Kind of a waste with 174 words and only using it once.
5:57 am
Merk

I seem to run into so many potential words that are missing only the final letters.
5:57 am
Scrabbler

I agree, Merk.
5:58 am
Merk

I love ones like the av 4 that you can just keep adding a letter one at a time to make new ones easily.
5:59 am
Merk

Or the sq where you can keep changing the final letters to make new ones.
5:59 am
Scrabbler

av4, 5 and 6, right? Or are there more?
6:00 am
Merk

No, just those. But some days there are numerous ones and I love them.
6:03 am
Merk

The four fa 4 do that today, too.
6:05 am

Got those

6:37 am
Aussieme

16 qu words !?!?!
6:38 am
FMitch

good lord I hadn't notice the quantity of qus!
6:38 am
Merk

But it is also used with the sq and in the middle of some words.
6:39 am
Aussieme

16 qu's is akin to having a k in the grid :(
6:39 am
Merk

There's also a fair number of the usual babblets.
6:40 am

I have 6 of the 16, so getting there :)

learn to knit, even

peri- I learned to crochet as a little girl and now I can't seem to pick up knitting
11:16 am
Haz1558

I never learned to crochet, but I can knit, even though notoriously handless when it comes to sewing. Crocheting might be quicker initially in terms of producing things, but knitting would, I think, be more adaptable.

Satisfactory is what my PE teacher used to put on my report. It meant, this girl is rubbish but she gives me no cheek.

Has the doctor any suggestions?

Maybe it's just going to take time for the whole thing to work its way out of your system. The only time I had flu was in 2000 and it was a month before I felt like anything normal and I had a mid dose compared to many.

11:31 am
Haz1558

It was so grim, flu is nasty.
11:31 am
Atalante

I really hope so
11:32 am
hego

It takes forever to recover from flu, Ata.
11:32 am
hego

But you will.
11:33 am
Atalante

it's *horrible*
11:33 am
hego

yes, it is.
11:33 am
Atalante

is 5 weeks already!
11:34 am
Haz1558

That's nothing, although it seems like an eternity.
11:35 am
Atalante

I know *grumble grumble*
11:35 am
Haz1558

Think back to when you were at your worst. You're better than that, aren't you?
11:35 am
Atalante

I just want to be able to walk the dog again properly!
11:36 am
Haz1558

I know. It's frustrating when you feel responsible for Hobbit as well.
11:36 am
hego

There, there (she says in best nurse voice)
11:36 am
Atalante

poor Hobbit, she's being so cooped up, and I hate it for her
11:37 am
Haz1558

That frustrated me so much when I had the back trouble and couldn't walk very far very fast. I felt sorrier for Spangle than for me.
11:37 am
Haz1558

But you will get better, you just will have to try to be patient and build up your strength.
11:38 am
Atalante

same here, I can cope with being bleh, I just hate how it affects Hobbit
11:38 am
Haz1558

(I'm using soothing font. Is it working?)
11:38 am
Atalante

just about :)
11:38 am
Atalante

it's just so frustrating! I'm used to walking all morning with her! not 30 minutes and collapse!
11:38 am
Haz1558

Let's face it, Hobbit's life could be worse. She could be asked to sleep outside like some poor dogs.
11:38 am
hego

Good work, Haz!
11:39 am
Haz1558

And she does have a purple collar.
11:39 am
Atalante

she does :P
11:39 am
Haz1558

Thank you, hego. Dorens is my role model for soothing and all diplomacy work.
11:40 am
Atalante

not Jac ;)
11:40 am
hego

You're very good.
11:41 am
Haz1558

Thank you. I'm hoping to pass my Grade 1 in Adoption of Soothing and Concilatory language.
11:42 am
Dorens

hah! just sat down to lunch, after trying to sort out nine argumentative nine year old girls, and read that!!! *feeling much better now*
11:42 am
Haz1558

'If I can help somebody as I pass this way. then my living shall not be in va4'
11:42 am
Haz1558

Hello, Dorens!
11:42 am
Haz1558

Pourquoi the French flag?
11:43 am
Dorens

I think you've always exceeded in soothing language, haz.. french flag because a good friend of mine died recently, and his ashes are now in Aix-en-Provence, so it is my memorial to him (there were no services)
11:44 am
Haz1558

That explains it. I wondered if you'd taken a quick trip to France or something. It's a nice gesture.
11:44 am
Dorens

I'd have loved to tell the superiors at school that I needed to fly off to Europe for a memorial service... would have done too... I adored him and miss him terribly. He is the one who called me Dorens

11:45 am
hego

Haz I still can't get the re 7 the show biz one. Can you clue me? tx
11:46 am
Haz1558

Yes, hego, I'll try.
11:46 am
Dorens

is this grid another bear (there have been a few lately) or will I warm up to it?
11:47 am
Haz1558

re7 - sounds like someone who does a critique of a play or TV programme, but it's spelled different. It has the same ending (last three letters as the ao6, Greek tense)
11:47 am
Haz1558

No, Dorens, I liked this grid.
11:47 am
Atalante

how silly
11:47 am
hego

Ty, ty
11:48 am
Haz1558

You're welcome, hego.
11:48 am
hego

Got it. tx again
11:48 am
Haz1558

Glad it helped.
11:49 am
Haz1558

Dorens, is this the friend who died recently, the one who told you he was ill but didn't really want to acknowledge it?
11:49 am
Haz1558

Or am I getting mixed up with someone else?
11:55 am
Atalante

looks like you'll never know :P
11:56 am
Haz1558

I think she's deep in the grid.
11:56 am
Atalante

think so!
11:58 am
Gail

no
11:58 am
Gail

Ooops.
11:58 am
Haz1558

Gail is disagreeing with us?
11:59 am
Gail

No, I am disagreeing with the doctor who just called and said I need shoulder surgery immediately. NO>
11:59 am
Haz1558

Bad doctor! Does he not know you have babble to think of?
12:00 pm
Haz1558

Have you hurt yourself, Gail?
12:00 pm
aslindy

wow, I don't think I've ever seen 16 starting with Q before
12:00 pm
Gail

Exactly. I have things to do. And I am still on crutches from the foot surgery.
12:01 pm
Haz1558

Those surgeons just don't know when to stop.
12:01 pm
Haz1558

There are a lot of qu words, and it's used a lot in other words, asl.
12:01 pm
Gail

I look like frankestein already with all the scars.

No wonder you don't want any more.

12:03 pm

oh my goodness... Haz, I don't know you, but I had a weird dream last night and one of the people in my dream was named Haz. How bizarre is that?
12:03 pm
Trifioso

hello! soft day here today
12:03 pm
aslindy

=)
12:03 pm
Haz1558

That IS bizarre. Was I well-behaved?
12:04 pm
Haz1558

Soft day = tipping it down.
12:04 pm
aslindy

well... yes... and you were a butler or footman.
12:04 pm
babbz

Hello all, I need someone to kick my behind into gear and get on with my day! I'm in a major procratination mode.
12:04 pm
Haz1558

I'd love to be a butler like Jeeves with a soothing tone and an answer for everything.
12:05 pm
babbz

procrastination, even
12:05 pm
Trifioso

the pillaging of my house has started, Haz - I didn't think it would bother me much, but in the end it rather did. But now that he is (mostly) finished, I am liking setting things up the way the kids and I might like. That has been fun!
12:05 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Hello all
12:05 pm
Gail

Babbz, I used to live in the Chicago suburbs, too. Hinsdale and Lagrange and Oak Park.
12:05 pm
Haz1558

Right, babbz. I don't know why you think you have time to sit here. You have things to do!
12:05 pm
babbz

LOL Now THAT's what I need!
12:06 pm
Haz1558

Just think of it as decluttering, Trif.
12:06 pm
Haz1558

Hello, Kaplan.
12:06 pm
babbz

Gail I went to LT for high school
12:06 pm
Trifioso

indeed, haz, indeed. and that is ALWAYS a good thing!
12:06 pm
aslindy

wow, we almost have tourniquet in the board. that would be a find!
12:06 pm
Soodle

Hi Trif! And Haz, while on holiday last week, I read 'Thank You Jeeves' - absolutely classic
12:06 pm
Gail

I just went back to Hinsdale Central for my 45th reunion last year.
12:07 pm
Haz1558

So, babbz, you have a list made for what you need to accomplish today?
12:07 pm
Kaplan the Magne

This is better than yesterday- but I really shouldn't stay long. I just like to see how many I can get without clues
12:07 pm
Trifioso

hey there soodle!
12:07 pm
Haz1558

Soodlebum - P G Wodehouse was a genius. He has me in tears of laughter so often.
12:07 pm
babbz

OMG Gail, my folks still live in what is now Burr Ridge but it used to be Hinsdale mailing address
12:07 pm
Trifioso

I am the same way, kaplan. In fact, I sort of make it a rule not to chat until I am at least NBT,or least one away
12:08 pm
Soodle

I had forgotten how good the books were. And weren't Fry & Laurie just perfect for the parts?
12:08 pm
babbz

and Haz - I have to grocery shop, clean my house, finish my work but I think I'm too overwhelmed so instead playing babble. There will be hell to pay later!
12:08 pm
Gail

That area has changed soooo much.
12:08 pm
Trifioso

fry and laurie were GENIUS in those roles!
12:08 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I haven't gotten into the appeal of trying to finish, but I like to see how far I can go...
12:09 pm
Haz1558

They were - I didn't see them first time around but have the DVD collection. I still like the books best, Wodehouse's descriptions are so good.
12:09 pm
Trifioso

babbz, try setting a timer - set it for say, 25 minutes. Clean or do a chore till the bell goes off, and then babble for half that time, to reward yourself
12:09 pm
marilyn992

Gail Im in Westchester, right near lagrange
12:09 pm
Trifioso

repeat until finished
12:10 pm
Haz1558

babbz, put down on the list the things you've already done, even if it's brushing your teeth. Bite sized chunks of activity (what's with my mouth obsession?) and you'll get through.
12:11 pm
Gail

Wow, we lived in LaGrange for several year. I enjoyed seeing the area again last year.
12:11 pm
babbz

Hi there marilyn, and haz that's a good idea - in fact, a great idea. Use this as a reward.
12:11 pm
babbz

I bet it's changed, Gail
12:11 pm
babbz

I hardly recognize it when I go back - I'm in Naperville
12:11 pm
marilyn992

Lagrange is very charming, lots of boutiquey shops
12:12 pm
marilyn992

reminds me of oak park
12:12 pm
babbz

It's my adult ADD rearing its ugly head again, Haz - thanks for the good ideas
12:12 pm
babbz

I like the towns where there is a nice downtown area
12:12 pm
aslindy

ok, here are some questions
. when using the Q, must you use the U with it also? could you do a word that is Q not followed by U? Could you use the U next to the Q - so you could use the H, T, or R next?
12:13 pm
marilyn992

naperville is very nice too, my son lives there
12:13 pm
Gail

It's all huge mansions now. My little house is for sale for half a million.
12:13 pm
babbz

really? Such a small world. Where about?
12:13 pm
Trifioso

no, aslindy, and that has come up before. for example, once the word "qats" would have been possible, but I couldn't enter it, as the qu is linked
12:13 pm
Haz1558

If you look, the Q is combined with the u on the tile. You have t ouse qu.
12:13 pm
hego

No lindy, the q and u must stay together.
12:14 pm
marilyn992

i cant think right now exa tly where, he has a condo not far from the high school
12:14 pm
aslindy

ok, thank you for clearing that up.
12:14 pm
babbz

Everything has dropped in value lately all over the chicago 'burbs
12:14 pm
aslindy

I don't get to come on here much. =(
12:14 pm
Trifioso

....makes me wish I had a "qu" key on the keyboard!
12:14 pm

oh mill i think , thats the street

Hello all. I worked 8-12 and return for evening hours from 5:30-8:30. So I have some time to Babble with my buddies!

lucky you, scrabbler! today is nap-perfect weather here, but Primo and I are heading out to pick up my nephew at college. Primo is PSYCHED to get to see the campus, see his cousin, etc.
12:16 pm

hi bichon and scrabs
12:16 pm

Scrabs has H1N1 peaked? Is it true?
12:16 pm
Trifioso

wow, it's all go with you, aslindy!!!!
12:16 pm
aslindy

so, we've been a little busy. =)
12:16 pm
Scrabbler

What college? I love college campuses--little microcosms and often with beautiful buildings
12:17 pm
Trifioso

Holy Cross in Worchester, Mass
12:17 pm
Scrabbler

It peaked locally (Buffalo area) although I saw 2 teens with it this morning
12:17 pm
Scrabbler

Enjoy, trif!
12:17 pm

Alma College, in Alma Michigan
12:17 pm
Trifioso

My sister (kadresa) has one kid at Holy Cross and one at Boston College. We tease her no end, as we are Methodists....
12:17 pm
mom2han8

Can anyone clue the qu6/27 and/or the qu5/16???
12:17 pm
Scrabbler

Both are excellent colleges, trif, as you know
12:18 pm
Haz1558

Which qu6/27?
12:18 pm
Trifioso

qu 5/16 sounds like to make the same, missing the first vowel.
12:18 pm
mom2han8

Yes... I just saw where they were saying H1N1 had peaked.... hopefully it will stay away from here, LOL.
12:19 pm
Haz1558

The first one adds a couple of vowels to the qu4/7
12:19 pm
mom2han8

I have that qu5/16... there is one that is quo 5/16.
12:19 pm
Scrabbler

The concern is that the holiday get-togethers (Thanksgiving + Christma)s will lead to increased infection rates
12:19 pm
Trifioso

phone - brb
12:19 pm
Haz1558

The second one is a plural for qu5/16 - sounds and looks like metal money.
12:20 pm
bichon

I'm hoping to get the vaccine soon. I'm 63 and have two underlying conditions
12:20 pm
mom2han8

obviously there are a number of qu5/16... so let me be more precise, LOL.... the one I need is after the qu4/7 that sounds like a girl's name (the girl in Goodbye Girl... the one that played the kid... Cummings was her last name).
12:21 pm
Scrabbler

But you were likely exposed to a similar flu virus in the 70's and have some cross-immunity. H1N1 is particularly hitting kids, and pregnant women
12:21 pm
Haz1558

OKay, the qu6/27 I think you need is French for four. The qu5/16 that precedes it takes out one letter just before the end.
12:21 pm
mom2han8

I call my kid "typhoid Hannah".. she gets nothing, but I swear she carries it all... LOL.
12:22 pm
Scrabbler

TY for Q clues--I need 2 more but haven't looked at the list yet
12:22 pm
bichon

Our University is giving it out to my age group, but only for on campus employees [I'm retired].
12:22 pm
mom2han8

Yeah.. forget my qu's... I have all the ones you guys are clueing and, upon closer inspection, it looks like they are mostly 5/16s and 6/27s.. so forget it.
12:22 pm

I never even considered getting the vaccine. I'm not anti-vaccine... just thought they were making a lot of hoopla out of nothing... unless you are immuno compromised, of course.
12:23 pm
Soodle

Oh my, Haz. The shame of them!!!
12:24 pm
Haz1558

I know. They were ghastly.
12:24 pm

AS of yesterday the TV reports that adults over 65 are now eligible for the vaccine. But no clinics near us. Wil have to call my doctor

12:25 pm

I told my doctor once that I never get the flu [I am asthmatic]. He read me the riot act [including how I could be on a ventilator]. Since then I've gotten the flu shot regularly
12:25 pm
Haz1558

They'll take the French word for three, as well, hego.
12:25 pm
Atalante

something to do with cards I think
12:26 pm
Haz1558

The only way they'll have a music career is to have their stuff digitally enhanced etc. Not a note do those two have in their heads. Vicuna could do better.

It is everyone's choice to take risks. Pregnant women are being hit hard by H1N1, and any home delivery is risky, esp a VBAC
12:44 pm

You wonder what gets into people sometimes. Well, hopefully all will go well.

i don't understand. how do you have a vaginal birth after caesarian? you can't put the baby back in...

12:45 pm

Risk of VBAC = uterine rupture and then mom + baby could die
12:45 pm

if the first doctor did the original ceasaren, she might get away with vaginal this time, but hell of a risk....

I agree that it is one's choice to take risks, but mostly they affect other people. I know a guy who drives like a maniac when his kids are not in the car (this way there is no risk to them from his risky behavior)... but I am like, OK... but what about the other people on the road that you put at risk?

Well, yes, one's risky choices do effect others
12:47 pm
bichon

She originally planned a home birth for the first one [she also had bariatric surgery] but ended up at the hospital cause she went into labor 5 weeks early. They had to do an emergency section as the baby's feet were hanging out of the birth canal. She says it was the worst experience of her life so she's ging to refuse to go to the hospital this time.
12:47 pm
mom2han8

I'm just saying that there are few risks that one takes that cannot have an effect on others.
12:47 pm
Scrabbler

So her fear is placing herself and her baby at risk!
12:47 pm
mom2han8

WEll, that's sound reasoning. Blame the hospital for the bad experience.
12:47 pm
bichon

All I can say is that my children have a lot more common sense than her.
12:48 pm
bichon

I think she's intrigued by the idea of home birth and nothing is ging to separate her from that idea
12:48 pm
mom2han8

hmmmm.. it sounds like she has no common sense at all! And is there really a doctor willing to assist her in this craziness?
12:48 pm
Scrabbler

She needs to be grateful for that stat C/S as it saved baby's brain and perhaps life
12:48 pm
jmcnrick

I am su4 it was the hospital's fault that the baby's feet were hanging out

No doctor, a midwife
12:48 pm

12:48 pm
jmcnrick

hi all
12:48 pm
hurshy

but when it comes to childbirth, there are those who are too extreme one way, but then, the system overall is a little too much the other way, in my opinion. i think a more european balance would be better - as the US does NOT have the top outcomes in this area.
12:48 pm
Scrabbler

Hi JM
12:49 pm
mom2han8

I had a C-section and always felt that I "missed out" on some level... but, to be honest, I would never consider having a VBAC myself and certainly not at home.
12:49 pm
jmcnrick

I agree with hursh
12:49 pm
mom2han8

True Hursh we do not... which is a sin, really.
12:49 pm
mom2han8

But given her medical/surgical history this midwife is really taking a risk with her licensing should something go wrong.
12:50 pm
jmcnrick

even 25 years ago it looked like you had to choose between having the baby in a flower painted bus or under sedation at the hosp. with the doctor in control
12:50 pm
bichon

My d.i.l had a VBAC this summer and had no problem. But she never would have considered it at home. Is it really worth it to put your ideals over the health of your child
12:50 pm
hurshy

my sister has had two babies now in a birth center located on the campus of a hospital. it's like a little house. they have huge tubs for water birth. the mother can move around and do whatever makes her most comfortable. midwives assist, and if anything goes wrong, the hospital is right there. since my sister has severe medical phobias, this has been a particularly valuable option for her.
12:50 pm
jmcnrick

my son was 12 lbs when he was born so I am grateful that c-sections existed
12:50 pm
bichon

I'm not even sure the midwife has a license. It might be a dula
12:51 pm
mom2han8

Nothing wrong with the VBAC... its all the other stuff in this particular case.
12:51 pm
mom2han8

birthing centers are great options for the non-complicated pregnancy.
12:51 pm
jmcnrick

then the dula is putting herself in a position for criminal charges

12:52 pm
hurshy

she was saying recently that it is hard for her, with her very positive experiences, to fathom that most women in the US give birth in a very different way.
12:52 pm
mom2han8

I had looked into a birthing center.. but I was insulin-dependent gestational diabetic... so the risks were really too high, in my opinion. They are great options though!
12:52 pm
mom2han8

A friend of mine used a birthing center.... ended up having some complications... so they wheeled her right to the hospital wing...
12:54 pm
jmcnrick

I was trying for the all natural thing but was very happy when the kid turned out so big that I was at a hospital
12:54 pm
hurshy

it is unfortunate that birthing centers are not more common and that hospital boards see them as more risky even though reports in places such as the new england journal of medicine indicate that that is not true. they considered shutting down the one my sister uses due to worries about risk (of course the risk they are worried about is financial), but luckily a grassroots campaign has kept it open for the present.
12:54 pm

mom2han8

Yes... its a happy day jmc.
12:54 pm
bichon

Birthing centers are great, as long as they are close to a hospital. My cousin's daughter gave birth in a hospital and she had [unknown at the time of birth] placent acrecia [where the placenta grows into the uterus, very rare]. The doctor saved her life and her uterus. Wouldn't have happened anywhere else but in a hospital
12:54 pm
mom2han8

The birthing centers that I looked into were both affiliated with hospitals.
12:55 pm
jmcnrick

birthing centers at hospitals are a good balance
12:55 pm
mom2han8

So, maybe not "true" birthing centers in the European sense, but they seemed like the best of both worlds.
12:56 pm
mom2han8

Hackensack University Medical Center has one, as does Valley Hospital... both local and well-rated.
12:56 pm
mom2han8

The only thing I have to admit was a little off-putting, at least for me, was that anyone in your family could be there... I was not sure I wanted anyone just traipsing in and out, LOL.
12:58 pm
mom2han8

Obviously these types of facilities exist more in areas like mine... probably harder to find in more remote areas.
12:58 pm
hurshy

for most women, of course, the desire for "natural" is an ideal but not necessarily a top priority. for my sister - i'm not sure if she would have had kids if she hadn't had the birth center option. for instance, many women think they don't want epidurals but then change their minds and it helps them. but my sister, with her medical phobias, was not a case like that at all. it's like if i was in labor and you said to me, ok, just hold this snake now and your pain will all go away - that would be a major NO THANK YOU. she is that phobic about anything medical.
12:58 pm
bichon

Some hospitals refuse to do VBAC's. I think that's wrong.
12:59 pm

To my Sweet Alexandra,

I wouldn't miss your big day for the World, it was just that I am just so honoured that you chose me to be such a huge part of it. Yes, I will do your hair, yes, I will help with your make-up, yes, I will help with the flowers, yes, I will be your Matron of Honour.


You have been my Sister for the longest, you have played a major part of my history, and I will always want you in my life. I cannot imagine my World without you in it, ever. I am sitting here, crying into my keyboard, thinking of you being so happy, and being able to share in it.

I hope with all my heart, that your future is bright, and that the past is well and truly in the past. You start a new chapter of your life, and I am glad to help in the start of it.

I love you more as each year passes, a little more than the year past, and a little less than the year to come....

I want to ask if I can do the first toast at your reception, if you will allow me that.....

God Bless you both...

Love Always...... Your Sister eternally.... xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
