2:53 am
Soodle

Flosey - It doesn't trip off the tongue & I have never ever heard of it before.

3:06 am
jillibus

Wistler has lots of snow but today they had to cut the training short because of fog. It's raining too. Next week is supposed to be clear though.
3:06 am
jillibus

see what I mean about hard to clue, flosey?
3:06 am
flosey

sure was jilli
3:07 am
flosey

and I don't believe I'll be using it in the near future
3:07 am
rubyfoo

I'm lookin forward to this Oliympics, especially since now I "know" several people from BC!
3:09 am
jillibus

flosey, now you must have the li4/5 word that isn't a car which is hiding in the ep10
3:09 am
jillibus

ruby, how is Mr Itchy doing?
3:10 am
rubyfoo

Mr. Itchy seems better and the cortisone has given him a huge appetite, makes his mom happy. But now Ruby is scratching non-stop! I just take xanax and sleep through part of the night anyway......
3:10 am
flosey

yes jilli, now I do
3:11 am
jillibus

well, at least you know what to do for Ruby, right?
3:12 am
rubyfoo

I have to talk to the vet today so maybe she'll give Ruby a shot, too, that is if I can catch that scamp!!
3:12 am
rubyfoo

not the vet, lol
3:14 am
flosey

back from our walk, hi everyone, a daily walk no longer suffices hugo, he is so full of energy
3:19 am
licketySplitAUS

Clues are up
3:19 am
rubyfoo

Ruby remembered the vet from 1 1/2 yrs ago and wouldn't come in the house, just stood outside growling, taunting and dancing about
3:19 am
Andree

thx lickety, how is maddie tonight
3:20 am
jillibus

thanks so much, Lickety!
3:20 am
flosey

Lickety, looks like yesterday's clues??

Andree

hugo loves the vet but nay change his mind as he is being desexed on monday
3:21 am
jillibus

your smuggery is well deserved this time, ata
3:21 am
Atalante

definitely helped being a marine biologist!
3:22 am
flosey

aha, so it's a word you might use Ata?
3:22 am
Atalante

actually, yes! or at least one I'm familiar with
3:22 am
Andree

hi ata
3:22 am
jillibus

I just shut down Babble and reopened it, and the clues are the right ones
3:22 am
flosey

oh, Thanks Jilli
3:22 am
Atalante

more for people who work with lakes than the sea really
3:23 am
jillibus

the def says "(in certain lakes) the layer of water above the thermocline"
3:24 am
Andree

i just refreshed and have the right clues
3:24 am
Atalante

yep - the li** bit denotes lakes
3:24 am
Atalante

li**ology etc
3:26 am
jillibus

we wore li5/10 stockings at boarding school in England, 1939-40 :-[
3:28 am
flosey

my mother would NOT buy me black stockings that were required to wear with tunic and bloomers - nor would she buy the bloomers, I wore those stockings and navy cotton panties
3:29 am
flosey

such a silly way to make a kid stand out!
3:30 am
Atalante

maybe I won't be smug today, maybe I'll gl5 instead!
3:30 am
jillibus

what, not wearing bloomers make you stand out?
3:30 am
Andree

we had to wear black stockings in winter and i remember so ofter having to ink parts of my leg so holes would not show
3:31 am
jillibus

too late, ata, you've already smugged
3:31 am
jillibus

oh my, andree!
3:31 am
flosey

when all the other kids wore them, I wanted them and the black stockings
3:31 am
Andree

and bloomers were obligatory with sports uniform
3:31 am
flosey

well ata, you can gl5 in your smugness?
3:32 am
jillibus

yes, kids want to be different from their parents but just like everyone else their age
3:32 am
Atalante

maybe I can :D
3:32 am
jillibus

we wore bloomers too but tucked them up so they looked more like panties.
3:33 am
Atalante

I had a blue tartan school uniform. Iimagine that. Not nice navy blue, either. Bright light blue, with bits of black adn yellow in the tartan
3:33 am
jillibus

well, I'm all in favour of school uniforms
3:34 am
flosey

I like the idea too
3:34 am
Andree

me too
3:34 am
jillibus

we had really nice ones at Malvern
3:35 am
Atalante

still pretty much obligatory here in private schools at least. but NOT uniforms that make kids look ridiculous
3:35 am
jillibus

I particularly liked the oatmeal worsted single pleat skirt and matching overcoat for spring -- wore it long after leaving school
3:36 am
Andree

all schools here have uniforms
3:36 am
rubyfoo

on phone, excuse me
3:36 am
jillibus

hardly any schools here have uniforms -- just private ones
3:37 am
Atalante

soooo many nearly words in this grid
3:37 am
rubyfoo

All this talk of tartan school uniforms is enchanting. Nothing like that in the US except for church schools. As a former teacher, I think uniforms are a great idea -- they remove much competition and class differences.
3:37 am
jillibus

yes, ata
3:37 am
FMitch

Morning/evening all
3:37 am
jillibus

hello FM
3:37 am
FMitch

Good evening jilli
3:38 am
Andree

hi fm
3:38 am
Atalante

in theory ruby, though uniforms are very easy to alter just slightly, enough to make differences ...
3:38 am
Atalante

hi FM!
3:38 am
FMitch

Ah school uniforms, mine was just like the St Trinians school films but in bottle green.

Hi Andree and ruby and Ata
3:39 am
rubyfoo

when I was at university, bohemian me used to buy nuns' stockings , black with seams, and wear them with high heels and a cape. OMG, what taste!
3:40 am
rubyfoo

hello FM
3:40 am
FMitch

and many a panama hat ended up on the train tracks thanks to the local comprehensive that would attack us at the end of the day.
3:40 am
jillibus

I hate that norse is not allowed -- I know, proper noun
3:40 am
FMitch

lol ruby
3:40 am
flosey

I've tried that word every time it appears
3:41 am
rubyfoo

I thought it could be a lower-case adjuective, but I guess not.....
3:41 am
jillibus

same as dane, which of course I always try
3:41 am
FMitch

me too flosey
3:41 am
Atalante

where do yu buy nuns' stockings from?
3:41 am
rubyfoo

what about anse?
3:41 am
FMitch

did you finish yesterday grid ruby?
3:41 am
rubyfoo

I used to buy them at Lord and Taylor in NY. As they lasted (could be mended), they were cheaper in the long run (pardon the pun).
3:42 am
rubyfoo

no, I never finish the grids, but it's OK
3:42 am
jillibus

LOVED Lord and Taylor 5th Ave!
3:42 am
FMitch

np just wondered, the fun is in the playing and the chat.
3:43 am
FMitch

Actually these days I chat more than I do the grids.
3:43 am
jillibus

My cousin and I worked at the College Shop at Arnold Constable's one summer
3:43 am
rubyfoo

and the Christmas windows!!!~ I grew up in NY and L&T was always a treat. The chat in here is very appealing, supportive and very interesting
3:44 am
jillibus

I do both, FM
3:44 am
jillibus

best Xmas windows ever at L&T
3:44 am
FMitch

:)
3:44 am
jillibus

where in NY, ruby, or have we had this talk before?
3:44 am
rubyfoo

not all this mechanized stuff
3:45 am
FMitch

What is the grid like today?
3:46 am
Atalante

the 10 letter word is great ;)
3:46 am
jillibus

not very nice, FM
3:46 am
rubyfoo

no, we haven't. I grew up in Queens, in a working class Irish/Italian neighborhood where my father had a candy store. Went to Queens College as an undergraduate and then, much later, went to Syracuse and Marywood (in Scranton) for my MA in fine arts. Lived in Bingamton for years and years
3:46 am
FMitch

a 10! wow hadn't looked at the stats.
3:46 am
jillibus

ata is gl5ing smugly
3:46 am
FMitch

I can feel the smugness from here :)
3:47 am
jillibus

ruby, I lived in Forest Hills and almost went to Queens but long before your time
3:47 am
Atalante

*smug smug smug*
3:48 am
FMitch

lol you silly dear!
3:48 am
Andree

when we lived in K L and my kids went to the american school they had the best uniforms ever, they had white or navy shorts and tops in white and navy with or without sleeves, lots of choice and they could mix and match but still be in uniform
3:49 am
FMitch

That was a good compromise Andree
3:49 am
jillibus

K L?
3:49 am
Atalante

which schoool did you go to FM with a nice bottle green uniform?
3:50 am
Andree

Kuala Lumpur
3:50 am
rubyfoo

jilli: I was born out Kew Gardens Hospital (now demolished) in 1943 and my sister lives in Forest Hills.
3:50 am
FMitch

St David's in Ashford Middx.
3:51 am
rubyfoo

obviously, my yping courses weren't much!
3:51 am
Atalante

I used to have a bottle green uniform in Cheltenham too. Was obviusly popular!
3:51 am
jillibus

I went to Richmond Hill High and my best friend (I'm still in touch with her) lived in Kew Gardens
3:51 am
FMitch

your yping courses LOL
3:52 am
rubyfoo

this is a very interesting (and nice) group. The vet just called and both Ruby and Max need to take medrol and she'll be here to check Ruby next week.
3:52 am
jillibus

did you go to Cheltenham, ata? I did when I was 8-9 but didn't stay -- went back to Shanghai
3:52 am
FMitch

oh and come the summer we wore hideous summer dresses white with small blue rosebud print but still with the green blazer!!!
3:53 am
rubyfoo

too funny. Richmond hill is totally black now as is Queens Village, where I lived. And Forest Hills is Chinese and Russian/Bukharian, except for my sister. She lives near the old tennis stadium.
3:53 am
FMitch

jilli you have reminded me again of what an interesting book you life would make!
3:53 am
jillibus

at Malvern we had nice summer dresses in a fine check with white Peter Pan collars and cuffs
3:53 am
Atalante

for *thinks* 3 years, yep Jilli
3:54 am
rubyfoo

we had dress codes in high school and college. Girls couldn't wear slacks or jeans (unhear of!) except in the art department at Queens
3:54 am
rubyfoo

unheard*
3:54 am
FMitch

*sigh* we had the peter pan collars but puff sleeves.
3:54 am
rubyfoo

now I had better get dressed or dreaded husband will shoot me!
3:55 am
rubyfoo

and make his lunch.
3:55 am
rubyfoo

BTW, my home-made borscht of yesterday was a great success!
3:55 am
jillibus

We lived not far from the tennis stadium. At first my mother and I stayed with my aunt at 18 Park End Place, later we got an apartment on 70-something street, can't remember which one.
3:55 am
FMitch

Bye then ruby.
3:55 am
rubyfoo

see you after
3:55 am
jillibus

this is too coincidental!
3:55 am
FMitch

yay re the borscht
3:56 am
Andree

bye ruby
3:56 am
jillibus

bye ruby -- say hi to your sister!
3:56 am
Atalante

Dean Close was a nice maroon, Charlton Park was bright yellow and navy (hmmm), Cheltenhem Ladies was green, Northampton was the barfy bright blue tartan from hell
3:56 am
rubyfoo

yes, will do. And Paul Simon went to queens with me, I dated him because I was the only short-enough girl!!!
3:56 am
FMitch

HAve a hair appt tomorrow, am a bit aprehensive as it is the first time with a new hairdresser. I am now too far away from my old one of 20 years to be able to go there.
3:57 am
FMitch

wow that is quite a parting statement ruby!
3:58 am
Atalante

she might be even better than your old one!
3:58 am
Andree

hope it goes well fm, who will get the blame if it doesn't?
3:58 am
jillibus

When I was at Cheltenham Ladies we had navy (I think) tunics with a v-neck. I have a picture of me wearing a hat and I think the ribbon was a lightish green
3:58 am
FMitch

lol Andree I guess that would be me!
3:59 am
Atalante

4:50 am
Scrabbler

I play Lexulous, Scrabble, this + Quote Puzzler games (10 daily). <--my latest addiction + obsession, thanks to nrkii.
4:52 am
Andree

i used to play quote puzzler
4:52 am
lynxxx

I tried Quote Puzzler a few years ago but was too small and fiddly for me. It cost a bit too didn't it? (which is probably why I didn't continue after trial)
4:53 am
Scrabbler

There are now 10 daily puzzles on QP, each a different challenge for the brain.
4:53 am
Andree

i found the total setup was for american players
4:54 am
Andree

especially the spelling
4:54 am
Scrabbler

Really? Hm, they seem like typical word puzzles to me. Maybe things have evolved.
4:54 am
Andree

and the quotes
4:54 am
lynxxx

Aside from this , I only play Wordsplay (was WeBoggle) occasionally - and of course I still have 2 of DC's games going!

There are two teenagers digging out cars for $10. so I had them dig me out. Well worth it. How are you doing with the snow situation down in DC?
6:26 am
jmcnrick

$10!! what a bargain!
6:27 am
Anniebrook

I thought so too!
6:27 am
jmcnrick

I hope for their sakes it is $10 each
6:27 am
jmcnrick

I escaped DC and am in Old Chatham outside Albany
6:27 am
Anniebrook

No for the two. I even asked them and they said they are happy with the $10 for both
6:28 am
jmcnrick

I dashed out Tuesday night barely getting ahead of the storm
6:28 am
Anniebrook

Good for you.
6:28 am
jmcnrick

well i would have jumped at that offer
6:29 am
Anniebrook

I did. And very nice kids too. After they dug me out they had a snowball fight. What energy!
6:29 am
jmcnrick

6:29 am
Anniebrook

I think so. About 14-15.
6:30 am
jmcnrick

6:43 am
Eva

A question for the birders out there. About an hour ago there was a pair of birds in the trees...they were backlit, the sun wasn't up completely, so I couldn't make out detail-but the shape was very much like a pigeon, mourning doves, but they seemed quite a bit larger. And they were way up in the tree, eating berries or something off of the tree. Any guesses? Usually when I see doves here they are ground feeding. Do grouse ever go up that high?
6:43 am
jmcnrick

lol
6:43 am
Scrabbler

Back with yogurt + microwaved thawed blueberries/blackberries/raspberries + almonds---->stirred up.
6:44 am
Scrabbler

Maybe they are doves, Eva. I have seen doves sit in my flat feeder at times.
6:45 am
Eva

maybe they were. They may have just looked a lot bigger because they were backlit.
6:45 am
jmcnrick

did you bring the maple syrup scrabs?
6:45 am
Scrabbler

I have some, Je
6:45 am
jmcnrick

i don't think grouse go in trees very high if at all
6:45 am
Eva

I've been trying to get a little extra sleep because i woke up very early, but it's hard to snooze with a 15 pound cat sitting on your shoulder.
6:46 am
Scrabbler

Did someone clue the ep10?
6:46 am
jmcnrick

well help yourselves to the pancakes then my dears!
6:46 am
Eva

You'd think I hadn't fed him in years.....
6:46 am
jmcnrick

when I was looking for the stats the clue i saw was something you might hear in a church
6:46 am
PinnyPoppins

i'm late to the pancake party, but can i have mine with bacon?
6:46 am
Scrabbler

*Creating stack of pancakes, applying butter, drizzling on syrup*
6:47 am
jmcnrick

I will have to check to see if crossy left any in the PB!
6:47 am
jmcnrick

I assume that is pure NY maple syrup scrabs
6:47 am
Scrabbler

Nope, Vermont
6:48 am
PinnyPoppins

ah yes - crossy is the bacon bandit
6:48 am
jmcnrick

I think it is funny that all the really northern states promote their local maple syrup but they all do it in the same brown plastic bottle!
6:48 am
jmcnrick

mea culpa -- vermont!
6:48 am
Eva

people already have the sugaring lines up here....seems a bit premature, but the weather has been so weird who knows.
6:48 am
jmcnrick

*fries bacon* sorry it wont take me a minute pinny
6:49 am
Scrabbler

There is a maple syrup farm nearby---acres of trees connected by tubing.
6:49 am
Eva

you guys are making me want to go out for breakfast.
6:49 am
PinnyPoppins

denny's grand slam!
6:49 am
jmcnrick

i admit i found the sugaring off stories facinating
6:50 am
Scrabbler

Or IHOP
6:50 am
jmcnrick

of course when i read them i had never seen snow
6:50 am
Eva

someone else said that the ep10 had something to do with marine biology. Whatever it is, I'm uttterly stumped
6:50 am
jmcnrick

pancakes are easy enough to make for myself
6:50 am
PinnyPoppins

hmm... don't think i ever had an IHOP brekkie
6:50 am
Scrabbler

marine biology vs church hymn--quite different clues
6:50 am
jmcnrick

i keep looking for epistle
6:51 am
jmcnrick

ihop is great at 4 a.m.
6:51 am
Eva

We have a local diner with fantastic homefries. I can live without pancakes, but good homefreis are worth traveling for.
6:51 am
jmcnrick

there is a local 24 hour diner near my house -- a great place after a really really late night
6:52 am
jmcnrick

all the greasy food you could want
6:53 am
jmcnrick

i don't know enough about marine biology so i am looking for a church word! ;-)
6:53 am
Eva

6:53 am
jmcnrick

lol so true eva
6:54 am
ladycece920

i'm going to give the 10 a go: ep + vowel + li4/5 meaning to describe + charged particle
6:54 am
Eva

I'm wondering whether the church clue is a homonym for sermon as part of it?
6:54 am
Scrabbler

I looked up ep10 from Lickety's resource list. I don't know what it means or how to clue it.
6:54 am
jmcnrick

i think when the snow hits on Monday no matter how little we will have had the most snow inthe US this year
6:54 am
jmcnrick

we are already number 2
6:54 am

6:56 am
ladycece920

6:56 am
FMitch

ep10 def is: the layer of water above the thermocline.
6:56 am
Scrabbler

I hope I did that right
6:56 am
Scrabbler

Weel, we all knew that, FM
6:56 am
FMitch

6:57 am

7:03 am
EspritdJean

is there a definition for the ep10?
7:04 am
Eva

We've had a string of cat tragedies in the area recently. Four of my friends have lost theirs. Two to old age, but the other two completely unexpected. One yesterday, a one year old, who snuck into the crafts room, swallowed thread with a needle on it and damaged his esophagus so badly that he had to be put down. I feel so awful for my friend. She feels guilty, but there's no way to avoid all of the accidents that can happen however careful one is.
7:04 am
wildcat17

oh my
7:05 am
Eva

yes esprit-the layer of water above the thermoncline
7:05 am
Anniebrook

Im sure that clears it up, Jean

7:07 am
Eva

You would think, given how precious kitty lives are, that I would be a good mommy and jump out of bed right now to feed Merp, but here I am once again getting my priorities sadly wrong.
7:07 am
wildcat17

lol
7:07 am
Anniebrook

Is Merp glaring at you?
7:08 am
Eva

yes, and mumping, and stalking, and doing the cat on death bed from starvation routine
7:08 am
wildcat17

poor Merp
7:08 am
Anniebrook

I know that routine. Works every time.
7:08 am
Eva

I mean look at that photo-does he look malnourished to you?
7:09 am
wildcat17

absolutely (by cat standards)
7:09 am
Eva

7:09 am
Eva

wildcat looks quite svelte
7:10 am
Eva

7:10 am
Anniebrook

Merp is beautiful
7:10 am
wildcat17

7:10 am
Anniebrook

excuse me, HE
7:10 am
Eva

thank you. Now he's doing the eating dead leaves and throwing up tactic. I think I'm going to have to go for a while
7:11 am

7:17 am
EspritdJean

scariest storm I've ever been in was from Whitefish, to Missoula MT. in a wet winter storm where I had to stop every few miles and knock the ice off the headlights, window and wiper blades. The antanna on the car would start vibrating and humming so loud it sounded ghostly.

2:13 pm
kje

do you mean antihistamines? decongestants? or steroids? the nasal sprays are either decongestants or steroids... and antihistamines are first line Rx for PND, so there was some miscommunication somewhere
2:13 pm
kje

for chroinc PND, he prob wants you on a nasal steroid
2:13 pm
hego

He said either. the steroids or antihistamines.
2:14 pm

for some reason, kje, I can only see that itty-bitty icon picture on each post. When I go to look at your profile pic, I see stairs, not a tree. :-( I've tried refreshing and it still doen't work for me.
2:30 pm
kje

they are cedars.. kind of weak trees... I think the weight of the snow is what broke them... I have 20 large limbs or more down all over the place
2:30 pm
lbdawger

cheese! oh dear, you mean i have to feed them?
2:31 pm
kje

it wasn't really windy
2:31 pm
Nef

just the weight of the snow on them then?
2:31 pm
lbdawger

cedars aren't very strong limbed trees.
2:31 pm
kje

nef - those stairs were yesterday morning... about 2 inches of snow at that point
2:32 pm
hurshy

mmm, make something out of it!
2:32 pm
kje

yep, that is what the tree guy said... cedars are weak limbed and known for doing this... they just break from the weight
2:32 pm
Nef

are those YOUR stairs? You don't need a stair-climber machine then, do you?
2:32 pm
kje

neighbor's stairs
2:35 pm
Nef

is that all of them? (They look like the size of a hill I grew up on, except the bottom of those looks steeper. Our stairs were concrete and brick
2:35 pm
kje

thankfully the tree broke that direction - split trunk half still standing, other half laying in the driveway... if the other half had been the one to fall, it would have demolished the front porch and living room windows
2:36 pm
JBV

hi folks, glad to hear your car is OK, kje - we've had a terrible accident here in my neighborhood - someone was killed by a falling tree branch

2:43 pm
redturtlehead

kje, he was the worst houseguest I have had. But I think frankly, that he has undiagnosed Aspbergers and that may be why he was so difficult to interact with.

2:44 pm
westford

he died doing a good deed that should count for something
2:44 pm

I really do think it is Aspbergers, and my friend who is a Psychiatrist agrees....so...
2:44 pm

it isnt entirely his fault. but it was very surprising.

looking at olympic pins. have old la ones with unworn hat i should put on ebay now
4:35 pm
72 Temple Owl

while interest is high.
4:36 pm
Dorens

have you ever sold anything on ebay before?
4:36 pm
72 Temple Owl

no.
4:37 pm
Dorens

i buy a lot, but have never sold.
4:37 pm
72 Temple Owl

would prefer to let someone i know and trust do so for a fee
4:37 pm
72 Temple Owl

i mean i get rid of clutter and someone else is happy.
4:37 pm
Jellen

Tim and I have sold some things, Tim more than me...
4:38 pm
Dorens

understood. it is the 21st century garage sale.
4:38 pm
72 Temple Owl

i have no paypal account and want to establish one.
4:38 pm
72 Temple Owl

but ofr olympic stuff now is the time
4:38 pm
Dorens

someday i may get around to it. I do have paypal... makes things very easy, owl
4:39 pm
72 Temple Owl

doren i was to enervated to drive up today.
4:39 pm
Dorens

enervated, now there's a word one doesn't get to use everyday. I myself am enervated in the dog days of august
4:39 pm
Nef

Hi again. TO getting a paypal account is easy. Just set it up to a separate bank account than your usual one (so no one can wipe it out if you goof).
4:40 pm
Dorens

what enervated you owl?
4:40 pm
72 Temple Owl

i am taking advantage of free checking account at ew credit union to do so
4:41 pm
72 Temple Owl

inactivity i think along with shoveling
4:41 pm
Dorens

hi nef.. I didn't do that, but maybe I should? how can we goof and let people wipe us out?
4:41 pm
Nef

We've bought and sold stuff on eBay and have never had a problem. The biggest obstacle is the packing and shipping; but there are now so many places that can help with that
4:41 pm
Dorens

i went to an exercise class last night that just killed whatever abdominal muscles i did have! painful, but not enervating
4:42 pm
72 Temple Owl

well i did not get the chance to go to the gym at all this week. do you still do a saturday AM class?
4:43 pm
Nef

Dorens, a hacker can actually go into your bank account and electronically transfer all of your funds out of there. I've never had it done; but my son and some other computer nerds have warned me about it; so I'm careful about using a pay pal account only for online transactions
4:43 pm
Dorens

yes i will. i am determined as all hell to lose ten pounds, and it has been difficult.. down six, then back up one
4:44 pm
72 Temple Owl

what class?
4:44 pm
Dorens

saturday? yogalaties.. combo of yoga and pilates, but depending on which instructor we have, it can be 85 % pilates, which I like
4:45 pm
Dorens

nef, i probably should do that, I am sometimes too trusting
4:45 pm
72 Temple Owl

do they allow drop ins?
4:45 pm
Dorens

(trusting=dumb)
4:45 pm
Dorens

i don't think so... are you a member of a YMCA anywhere else? (also, the class is at 8:45!)
4:46 pm
72 Temple Owl

no. need a reason to get driving early and longing to do a class
4:46 pm
Dorens

i do the same thing on monday evening at 5:15, if you are still around then. I think I heard next week is a membership drive where they are allowing drop ins.. will check and see if it begins tomorrow
4:47 pm
72 Temple Owl

mudt go to dentist monday AM :(
4:48 pm
72 Temple Owl

have done nothing all day. i at least wanted to bake or the guys across the street who dug me out
4:48 pm
Nef

Dorens, we've always had very good luck with all of the stuff we've bought on eBay over the years (except for the car engine that my son bought -- it was warped!) and have never had a problem. I just know that my son had a bunch of nerdy friends in HS and from then on and *some* of these guys have hacked into things they shouldn't have (but claim they never did anything illegal or steal anything)
4:48 pm
Dorens

too bad... just checked and the free adult openhouse week begins 2/20
4:49 pm
72 Temple Owl

s'ok. are you doing anything special this weekend?
4:49 pm
Nef

that's next week, not this week
4:49 pm
Dorens

i've bought lots of stuff and it's always been good. i know about those hackers, but i have hitherto stuck my head in the sand.
4:50 pm
Dorens

owl, if you want to come tomorrow morning, 8:45 class probably you can come for a fee. will check
4:50 pm
72 Temple Owl

no don't go to any trouble. you can ask when you go what the ee is and in future i may join you if you like.
4:51 pm
Dorens

ok.. i'm allowed three guests a y ear for $10 per guest. if you can be here.. my house.. by 8:30, it's a go. My friend and I go down to the gym after to do weights/ machines for 15 minutes after
4:51 pm
Dorens

(i just love the internet... never really saw the website for the y before now)
4:51 pm
72 Temple Owl

just remembered i promised to bring my dad a pizza, he likes my shop here. and they make a homestyle with thim crust and not cheese laden
4:52 pm
72 Temple Owl

i hate all that cheese on american style pizza
4:52 pm
Nef

1 of my son's friends started teaching adult ed computer classes when he was 8 yrs old. They are 30 now; he was just diagnosed with Aspergers' but this guy teaches computer science at a U here and he can tell so many stories about what hackers can and can't do
4:53 pm
Good Enough

TO you like peeps but you don't like cheese! what are we gonna do with you?!
4:53 pm
Dorens

there's a brooklyn style place in hackensack that has great reviews... do you know it?
4:53 pm
72 Temple Owl

wellpeeps are not dairy! :)
4:53 pm
Good Enough

4:53 pm
72 Temple Owl

4:54 pm
Dorens

it's on river st... pretty far down towards route 4
4:54 pm
72 Temple Owl

yes, went there years back with my mother.
4:55 pm
Dorens

we went once and i thought it was good, but it was mother's day, very crowded and the service was slowwwwww, which made my mother cranky and I have bad associations with it (she gets rude sometimes). think the pizza was great though
4:56 pm
72 Temple Owl

i now favor either tomato pie with a bit of added cheese or fresh mozzarella margarita. when we went there the pizza was very dark on the bottom.
4:57 pm
redturtlehead

Hey all how goes it... Sadly I only have 43 words!
4:57 pm
Dorens

the margherita is my absolute favorite.. in fact we are going for some tonight after the movie (am going to spend 40 minutes on the bike right now to burn off calories sufficient to allow me to cheat onmy diet)
4:58 pm
Dorens

TO that is very unusual and I hope all turns out well.
5:06 pm
redturtlehead

Well, I think it may be the cause, but blame is a strong word.
5:06 pm
72 Temple Owl

this is the only disease where we blame the victim.
5:06 pm
redturtlehead

Not the only one at all TO.

5:08 pm
72 Temple Owl

5:08 pm
Nef

no, it isn't the only disease like that. There are many types of lung cancer, TO. most are related to toxic substances (ie: smoking or 2nd hand smoke, etc) but not all
5:09 pm
72 Temple Owl

5:10 pm
redturtlehead

5:10 pm
redturtlehead

5:15 pm

5:16 pm

5:17 pm
Uneaixoise

5:17 pm
pugmama763

OMG I saw that happen when I was a corrections officer !
5:18 pm
Nef

Sometimes when we park in a handicapped spot you can just feel some people staring at you to see if you *have* a handicap. At least my DH's is visible
5:18 pm

5:19 pm

I must go, too - I actually grocery shopped today and need to use up some of the 24 bags of produce I got carried away buying today. I guess it's better than potato chips, but I'll probably be pitching half of it before I use it. Just can't seem to resist a bargain....
5:59 pm
EspritdJean

produce bargains in chicago???
5:59 pm
babbz

Food is so cheap here it's beyond belief
6:00 pm
EspritdJean

where do you shop?
6:00 pm
babbz

We have about 35 grocery stores within a 8 mile radius...but the ones that offer the great deals on produce are the smaller ones. I like Garden Fresh - are you from the Chicago area, Esprit?
6:01 pm
EspritdJean

yes nw suburbs
6:01 pm
babbz

you have a garden fresh in Wheeling i think
6:01 pm
babbz

which burb?
6:02 pm
EspritdJean

Yes I go there sometimes
6:02 pm
EspritdJean

prices are better than the big chains, but I never think they are "cheap"
6:02 pm
EspritdJean

I live in Wheeling
6:02 pm
babbz

I'm not sure how your Garden Fresh is, however ours has unbelieveable deals on produce and it looks fabulous.
6:03 pm
babbz

My son lives in Wyoming and daughter lives in Miami, and compared to those areas, if you shop the sales, food is very cheap.
6:03 pm
EspritdJean

I guess it's all relative :-}
6:03 pm
babbz

My sister lives up near LaCrosse, Wisconsin and she has about 3 places to shop, period.
6:04 pm
babbz

And you're right, it is relative. But I'm a bargain hunter with groceries and you can find great deals.
6:04 pm
EspritdJean

my friend in california is always astounded at our produce prices compared to their (ours are much higher)
6:04 pm

Where do you shop?

6:05 pm

well red, went out today for awhile, the back roads are still quite bad, you can see where there were 10 to 15 foot drifts, my son was out pushing during the storms and he was telling us some tales this evening, unbelievable stuff! Now we are supposed to get another storm possibly Monday.
6:25 pm

my computer just made an obscene noise! can computers fart?
8:48 pm
dcseain

yes, LBD. usually that means you hit an invalid keyboard command accidentally, or entered too much data at once via keyboard
8:48 pm
dcseain

it can mean in internal OS error, assuming it's Windoze
8:49 pm
lbdawger

it's windoze...but i didn't hit any keys.
8:49 pm
dcseain

that usually means that you're low on virtual memory, regular memory, disk space, or some other internal error then.
8:50 pm
dcseain

or your cat strolled across the keyboard :)
8:50 pm
lbdawger

no cat, so how do i check on the memory?
