it seems to give more taste with a lot less
12:55 am

it may contain other taste-enhancing ingredients
12:55 am
MetFan

Just much better to use more pepper and other spices for flavor.
12:56 am
melonheadjujube

I'll pipe in - if you cut back salt gradually, you're less apt to miss the taste. The old standby lemon juice works if you can use it (I haven't been following the caht).
12:56 am

3:50 am
herinfernallady

good for you brookie. Freezing here and have a headache
3:50 am
Brookie

Sorry to hear that. How cold is it there? I thought you're in the middle of summer!
3:51 am
herinfernallady

It is summer but the wind has picked up here in the hills
3:52 am
Brookie

Ugh, I hate the wind. Thank goodness for indoor climate control.
3:52 am
Brookie

It's 4:52 in the morning, and I'm eating leftover caesar salad. Yum.
3:53 am
dcseain

same time here, brookie. i got home about 10 min ago. I just at a Reese's PB Tree
3:53 am
dcseain

hi lady and brookie
3:54 am
herinfernallady

HI DC
3:54 am
Brookie

hi dc! i could go for a reese's, but my 7 year old told me yesterday that i've gained a lot of weight, so i'm trying to stay away from the sweets.
3:54 am
herinfernallady

No aircon here and just a wood heater
3:55 am
dcseain

LOL brookie about the child commenting
3:55 am
Brookie

just close your eyes, herin, and imagine yourself in the desert
3:55 am
dcseain

but, yes, avoiding sweets this time of year is a challenge
3:55 am
herinfernallady

and its too warm for the wood to get started
3:56 am
Brookie

my problem has been lack of exercise. i used to go for 3-4 mile walks all the time, but the weather hasn't cooperated. i guess i could take my walks at the mall...
3:57 am
dcseain

you could. the mall is rather boring for that, though.
3:57 am
Brookie

no, the people-watching is quite a hoot
3:57 am
dcseain

oh, good point
3:58 am
rubyfoo

doorbell, dog barking, too late! all the snowbirds keep dropping in. Sounds like a long haiku!!!
3:58 am
Brookie

so, how was your new years?
3:58 am
dcseain

LOL ruby
3:59 am
Brookie

lovely impromptu haiku, ruby
3:59 am
rubyfoo

quiet here except for the fireworks and firecrackers which make the dogs crazy
3:59 am
dcseain

i played the tradational New Year's Mah Jongg game :)
3:59 am
herinfernallady

Quiet I ran away to the hills
3:59 am
dcseain

always a good idea that, herin :)
4:00 am
herinfernallady

Yep. middle of no where it was great
4:00 am
Brookie

children fell asleep very early, so i celebrated by finally getting some sleep of my own
4:00 am
dcseain

i'm proud of myself for finding 3 of the 8s in my first 81 words :)
4:00 am
dcseain

there's a treat, brookie, if ever!
4:01 am
dcseain

i'm glad that fireworks/firecrackers are not part of new year around here.
4:01 am
Brookie

just got 1 of the 8s in my first 103 words. and apparently i'm fat :-)
4:01 am
herinfernallady

DC if yuou look at my FB pics that table of food is what we had NYE
4:01 am
rubyfoo

when I lived in Miami, people would shoot guns straight up into the air at midnight!
4:01 am
rubyfoo

every year some bystanders were shot!
4:02 am
Brookie

omg, ruby!
4:02 am
dcseain

my goodness, ruby.
4:03 am
dcseain

herein, i'll check them out
4:03 am
herinfernallady

ok
4:04 am
Brookie

if any of you would like to "friend" me on fb, search for me on my email address... bsgrubb at aol dot com
4:04 am
dcseain

4:05 am
Brookie

4:05 am
rubyfoo

4:06 am
herinfernallady

I am just trying to find info on my Grand pop.
4:06 am
herinfernallady

Brookie i will add you
4:06 am
Brookie

just send me a note on fb too, so i know it's you!
4:07 am
Brookie

trying to find your grandpop on fb, or somewhere else?
4:08 am
herinfernallady

Brookie my Grand Pop Has a very long and interesting history with the military. Sadly he passed when I was a baby.
4:08 am
herinfernallady

And I have FB added you
4:08 am
dcseain

i noted my babble identity in my request
4:08 am
Brookie

thanks everyone!
4:09 am
Brookie

herin, sorry you couldn't really meet your grandpop. how are you gathering information about him? from your other relatives? online?
4:10 am
Brookie

will be back in a minute... going to check facebook.
4:10 am
herinfernallady

I am curious
4:11 am
rubyfoo

i just tried to "friend" brookie and got a weird message. I'll try again before lunch
4:12 am
Brookie

it worked, ruby... just accepted your friend request (along with herin's and dc's). how cool, thanks again!
4:12 am
dcseain

babble is the reason i have a FB account. I've coincidentally reconnected with a bunch of people from long ago in the process.
4:13 am
rubyfoo

I thought it didn't but I'm pleased. I've only been on for 2 wks but find this very open and nice. Thank you all for being so accepting of my iuneptitude!!! lol
4:14 am
herinfernallady

It's really interesting but my nan is no longer here too
4:14 am
Brookie

ruby, i'm inept every single day, so occasional departures from perfection from everyone else are totally accepted in my book!
4:15 am
rubyfoo

lol
4:15 am
rubyfoo

not if I could just get the picture sorted out, I'd be happy, then everybody could see the "real" Ruby!
4:16 am
Brookie

i got a fb account to connect with former classmates before my hs reunion.
4:16 am
Brookie

you're right, dc, it's amazing who you can reconnect with... i recently found my best friend from elementary school!
4:16 am
dcseain

we organized our reunion through FB this time. Last time, we did it through our yahoo group.
4:17 am
Brookie

was fb in use 5 years ago? 10 years ago? (whenever your second-to-last reunion was?)
4:18 am
dcseain

FB did not exist 5 years ago when we did the last one
4:18 am
herinfernallady

Sadly all the ''story'' tellers are gone in my family
4:18 am
Brookie

sorry to hear that herin
4:18 am
rubyfoo

although I've found some old (old) friends on fb, I find that I have more in common with my new friends from games and that we quickly run out of things to talk about
4:19 am
dcseain

you'll cary on the stories in your time, too, herin
4:19 am
herinfernallady

well no one talks about stuff which should be recorded
4:19 am
herinfernallady

well no one talks about stuff which should be recorded
4:20 am
rubyfoo

before she died, I had my grandmother tell me about all the people in the old family photographs; it is a wonderful trove of info
4:20 am
herinfernallady

Just now I found out my Grandfather was in the Scots Royal Guard and that my Great Grandfather was one of the few that survived the landings at Gallipoli
4:21 am
Brookie

how did you uncover this information, herin?
4:21 am
dcseain

that's really wonderful, herin :)
4:21 am
rubyfoo

that's great stuff, herin
4:21 am
dcseain

20-20-20-24 hours to go-o-o-o, i want to be se7.36
4:22 am

thanks for the clue, dc!
4:22 am
herinfernallady

And then the tough bugger marched from Wales to England in the Coal miners strike
4:23 am
dcseain

LOL, glad it was helpful
4:23 am
dcseain

one of my great-great-great-grandmothers left Wales to get away from the mines.
4:24 am
dcseain

oops great-great-grandmother rather
4:24 am
dcseain

got carried away ther
4:24 am
Haz1558

It was probably to get away from Tom Jones' great grandfather singing, but that's another story.
4:24 am
herinfernallady

DC my Nana did tell me some wonderful stories
4:24 am
rubyfoo

hello haz
4:25 am
dcseain

ROFL haz
4:25 am
Haz1558

Good morning/evening all.
4:25 am
dcseain

good morning, haz
4:25 am
Haz1558

I've been doing family history research and there's an amazing amount of info on the internet.
4:26 am
dcseain

there is indeed
4:26 am
Haz1558

Hello seain, ruby, herin.
4:26 am
herinfernallady

Haz there is but it doesn't help when Pop was in the Secret Services in England
4:27 am
Haz1558

During what period?
4:27 am
herinfernallady

WW2
4:27 am
herinfernallady

Royal Scots Guard also and he worked for the Home Office (hope that is right)
4:28 am
rubyfoo

lunch break, apero time, see you later
4:28 am
dcseain

njoy, ruby
4:28 am
herinfernallady

later Ruby
4:28 am
Haz1558

Bye ruby.
4:29 am
herinfernallady

Haz does that make sense? I think we have to wait until the files are opened
4:30 am
Haz1558

Secret stuff usually stays secret. The files may never be opened. If you're using nationalarchives.gov.uk and if you have his service numbers, you should be able to get as much as they're prepared to give you.
4:30 am
Haz1558

That generation took the 'Secret' part very seriously.
4:31 am
dcseain

very muchso, even here, haz.
4:31 am
Flask1

Good morning all.....
4:32 am
dcseain

good morning, flask
4:32 am
herinfernallady

I just have his name and thank you for that
4:32 am
Haz1558

We only discovered that a friend's great aunt had probably served in Bletchley Park during the war when she became demented and started to look back. No-one had any clue, we knew she had been in WRAF but that was as far as it went.
4:33 am
Haz1558

It'll be easier, herin, if you can get his service number - WW1 medals had service numbers on them, not sure about WW2.
4:33 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Flask.
4:34 am
herinfernallady

Thank you Haz. We don't have any of his meddles
4:34 am
herinfernallady

Was Bletchley Park the decoders?
4:34 am
Haz1558

The other way of making contact, might be to write to his regiment to see what they might have on him.
4:34 am
Haz1558

Yes, as featured in Enigma. She wouldn't have been decoding, but she would have been working in the background supporting the whole enterprise.
4:35 am
dcseain

and the support workers do more than they ever get credit for in many an effort, not least in time of war
4:36 am
Haz1558

Absolutely, it's a team effort.
4:36 am
herinfernallady

I just would love to see photos of him. My Aunt has a pic of the ship that my GGrandfather was on
4:37 am
Haz1558

Then the regiment might be the best bet, they may well have records and photographs.
4:37 am
mom2han8

I often think it must have been hard for these women after the war to just give it all up and get married and have families.
4:38 am
herinfernallady

That is what I am trying to find out Haz. THank you for the website. Hi Mom
4:38 am
Haz1558

All the best for the search, herin.
4:38 am
mom2han8

Hi all... sorry, just jumped into the chog.
4:40 am
Haz1558

Hello, mom. I imagine that feelings were mixed. The war would have been a hard slog, certainly after the war in Britain, it was no picnic either with rationing continuing etc.
4:40 am
dcseain

hello, mom. It was likely harder for some than others. some number were likely relieved to be able to get back to the pre-war routine, insofar as postbellum resumble antebellum
4:40 am
herinfernallady

I do also have a very rare book of the Bombing of London published in the time of WW2
4:41 am
mom2han8

Of course.. but I would imagine that having had opportunity and responsibility and then... *poof* "here's your hat"... it happened here with the factory jobs.
4:42 am
dcseain

excellent point, mom
4:42 am
Haz1558

But don't forget that a lot of war work was heavy, dirty and mundane, not necessarily exciting. Plus many women had to keep house as well, maybe it was nice to have one less struggle?
4:42 am
herinfernallady

Haz i think i will have to just admit that finding anything on him is a lost cause.
4:43 am
herinfernallady

My b.fs Grandma was a gun loader in London and she is tiny
4:43 am
mom2han8

True Haz... I'm sure there were some women who were happy to get back to their prewar lives, others maybe not so much.
4:43 am
Haz1558

herin, I think you'll be able to find at least the bare bones, and if nothing else, you'll be able to corroborate dates etc. Try all the resources before giving up but don't expect too much, if that makes sense.
4:44 am
Haz1558

I agree, mom, I think people will have had different reactions.
4:45 am
herinfernallady

Yes it makes sense
4:45 am
dcseain

herein of the Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) have a temple in your vicinity, most have a genealogy center attached that provide remarkable resources for free
4:46 am
Haz1558

And time for me to go - shopping to do. I don't want to go, but people will keep eating! Bye for now.
4:46 am
dcseain

oh, my. it's nearly 6! I should try to sleep, i suppose. Be well, haz
4:46 am
herinfernallady

Thank you DC
4:46 am
mom2han8

In some industries it did not matter... my grandmother was a nurse. She trained nurses going off to war and continued training nurses throughout her life, but nursing, back then, was a predominantly "female" field. So, for her, she got an opportunity to teach and was able to continue doing it. Not the same story for most female workers during the war.
4:46 am
herinfernallady

Bye and Thank you haz. BRB I have to go somewhere for a min

In Canada there are two government plans similar to US Social Security
8:07 am
crosshair

looks almost like aid to disabled person form
8:07 am
oodleberry

well if it takes long for one government to do something that doesn't surprise me that it will take twice as long when two governments are involved PLUS a thuird when dealing with Québec
8:07 am
lawyer-1

The one that pays the most is the easiest to get
8:07 am
Anniebrook

yes, I thought so too crossy

Over the last several years I have made myself switch to drug names in both notes and with parents, and I teach students, residents, nurses to do the same. Also with imms--old records have TriHibit, TriPedia, etc and no one knows what those are.

10:00 am
Atalante

lol the first link I see: "Yellow-fleshed potatoes are common in Europe and South America. In fact, yellow flesh potatoes are actually considered the norm in most countries outside North America, so naturally, immigrants to North America were accustomed to and preferred potatoes with yellow flesh."

Ata, here in the US, we have Idaho potaoes (for baking) and red potatoes (for boiling) and the gold potatoes are kind of in between. The Yukon golds can be baked and they almost have a buttery taste, I don't use much butter on them at all. Then there are purple potatoes, finger potatoes, etc
10:01 am
bichon

ty hego for the re 8
10:01 am
Atalante

I think the Yukon Golds are almost like our Jersey Royals, a lot of our potatoes are yellow-y and yummy
10:01 am
oodleberry

but when I was in france I never saw a yellow potato ata
10:01 am
hego

Potatos are native to the Western hemisphere
10:01 am
welki

hey! i loved baked reds, nef! and fries, too!
10:02 am

In Italy, they're white fleshed
10:02 am

in Italy, they have all sorts
10:02 am

only good thing here in quebec city is the food... it is the only thing I do well... and that is eat...
10:03 am
hego

Great talent Oodle.
10:03 am
Atalante

definitely
10:03 am
Nef

so do I welki. However, when you eat out you only get russets or idaho potaoes when you order baked. There's a big difference in the starch content of the different varieties
10:03 am
oodleberry

but but but hego didn't you know that the italian potatoes are from which they get pasta you silly girl :D
10:03 am
flosey

I love baked Idahos
10:03 am

ohhh, here, it's common to be served a rough mash of red potatoes with herbs
10:04 am
Atalante

I love baked Estimas
10:04 am
welki

i jumped the gun .. yep, whites for baked if eating out)
10:04 am
flosey

that's a new name to me Ata
10:04 am
Atalante

but I do live in the middle of a potato growing region, so I can get about 20 vareties in the local farm shops!
10:04 am
hego

I've been to cooking tours in Italy and I swear the potatos we used were white to make the gnocchi.
10:05 am
Atalante

Estimas are local Kent potatoes, the best best for baking cos they don't need even a smidgen of butter
10:05 am
phaeton

i find idaho potatoes very dry to the taste
10:05 am
Atalante

well yes, but they don't just have gnocchi :P if you have had the little fried potato balls etc, those can be made from anything
10:05 am
oodleberry

they are called pasta potatoes... that's where all pasta is from in Italy.... *giggles*
10:05 am
flosey

wow Ata, would love to try them! I smother my baked potatoes with butter and sour cream!
10:05 am
Nef

I usually buy Yukon Golds these days, I like the flavor better than the russets. If there aren't any Gold potaotes, then I get the red potatoes. I love baby red potatoes in a white sauce.
10:06 am
Atalante

now I really want gnocchi!
10:06 am
bichon

I didn't know that potatos could bring up so much chat
10:06 am

I am diabetic and don't eat them much [sadly]

Stop it Oodle, most pasta is made from wheat.
10:06 am
flosey

hubby grows the reds
10:06 am
Atalante

you'd love them, Flosey! It was an absolute eye-opener for me. I'd never managed baked potatoes without lashings of butter before, these just taste like they have butter already in them. Utterly wonderful
10:06 am

(but will put yukon golds on the shopping list once i'm done with the reds i have)

I am well jmcnrick. I woke up to even more snow this morning.Procrastinating about shoveling all the snow
10:30 am

Very windy and cold here today. New Year blowing in like a lion.
10:30 am
jmcnrick

you can only put off shoveling snow for so long or it is likely to get worse before it gets better
10:30 am
jmcnrick

really windy here too -- they have a wind advisory going
10:31 am
jmcnrick

although i must admit being advised that there is lots of wind seems kinda silly
10:31 am

sheesh ... throwing this into chat for a decision. i need to cook today, i need some real food and haven't been able to do much of anything for the last few days (sprained ankle). lamb chops or scallops?
10:32 am
Nef

so true, jmc. We had a bad storm over Christmas, and my dtr. hasn't shovelled out her convertible yet. Then it rained and snowed and froze even more. She'd going to have a hard time digging it out this next week. (she's been using my car while I recuperate)
10:32 am

because heaven forbid someone makes a decision around here! LOL

scallops cook faster but with pork chops you can sit down inbetween

Hmmm. Lamb chops might be less fussy, Welki.
10:32 am

sorry lamp chops
10:32 am

Lamb Chops would be easiest

10:46 am

that's what sucks being in quebec ... you can't find half the products that the rest of canada can easily find
10:46 am

This dictionary allowes you some - what I consider - quite offensive words - like yi4/7 and yet it wouldnt allow me negro - which I find strange????
11:22 am

Negro is capitalised, Deeha.
11:22 am
Atalante

neo-predef?
11:22 am
rururocks

because black people kvetch more than jewish people
11:22 am

it never excludes based on offensiveness. whatever reasons things are excluded are either grammatical or un-figure-out-able
11:22 am
rururocks

It is for hot spots and irritated skin.. it works like a charm.. you can buy it at dog shows or a vet
11:24 am

she's got generally very good skin. we think she just got her "tail" caught on something and no-one noticed until infection had set i properly
11:24 am

I thinjk perhaps rururocks is pretty close!! I suppose now I think about it Negro is capitalised -en masse tho' ????!!!¬

*random* "hot spots" is something I've never heard a non-american say about dogs

Isn't "negro" spanish for black? There is a spanish farewell in today's grid.

The da 4/5 is January 3, 1010.Here's my second clue paragraph for the year. Spent Christmas in Vermont with my family. I never like the long ri 4/5 up there, but it is worth it in the end. Niece and nephew were so cu 4/6 with their exci4/5ment for Santa to come with his 8 reinde4/5. Now that the holidays are over I must go on a di 4/5. Pretty soon I won't be able to fit through the do4/5. As much as I ad 5/12 X-Mas, I am glad it is over. I did get a do 4/5 of reality today when hubby reminded me I have work in two days. It will be very hard for me to ri4/4 early in the morning and ea 4/4 back into the swing of things on Monday. I have an id 4/5 to call in sick on Monday.I would not give one io4/4 what my boss would think of that.But sometimes my id5/12 are not so good&I do the right thing instead. Well I have sa 4/5 all that I wanted to say at this time. I hope some of you got some cu 4/6.

*I just heard myself do Curly (Stooge) sound when a word didn't work* LOL
4:49 pm
nrkii

Not crosswords, they're all a takeoff on some other game... there's one that's like hangman, but harder; there's one that's like scrabble, but you can make backwards words too, there are a few that are quotes and you have to rearrange letters to find them... etc.
4:49 pm
jmcnrick

lol scrabs
4:50 pm
jmcnrick

sounds interesting nrkii
4:50 pm

I watched the Three Stooges marathon on New year's Eve--hilarious!

4:52 pm
Scrabbler

hi kaplan
4:52 pm
nrkii

Key thing on In & Out is to type in the answer in the box below as soon as you get it
4:52 pm
nrkii

Don't keep clicking on letters, because every click costs you points
4:52 pm
Scrabbler

And the concept of creating palindromes is one I must focus on
4:52 pm
nrkii

hi kaplan!
4:53 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I have to do 52 more words, but only have a half hour- so it will be one of those no-fireworks days

4:53 pm

kaiak, shtik, and knar are my favorite palindromes on Word Builder and Honeycomb
4:54 pm
Kaplan the Magne

What's new? Boston has a pretty snow, not too much car scraping
4:54 pm
nrkii

alif is another favorite
4:54 pm

I just got here, may be missing some crucial info
4:54 pm
oodleberry

4:55 pm
nrkii

sorry, not a palindrome in the true sense of the word
4:55 pm
Scrabbler

I must remember those, n
4:55 pm
Kaplan the Magne

What other sense of palindrome is there?
4:55 pm
nrkii

in the games Scrabbler and I are talking about, two allow you to make words that work both ways for double points
4:55 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Ohhhh.
4:55 pm
nrkii

someone at some point starting calling that the semordnilap mode, as a joke
4:56 pm

It's an electric heater that supposedly only uses the power of a coffee maker, and it's completely safe -- won't set stuff on fire and burn your house down, your pets can sleep on top of it, etc

well, I'm also being better this year about shutting doors and closing off rooms, so some of the saving is just better habits

Anyway, the edenpure heater is good because I can heat my bedroom at night and let the rest of the house get cold. Only problem is how cold the hallway is when I step out in the morning.... probably gets down to 50.
