In case anyone is wondering how ch 6 could be allowed, it's (1) an old Scottish unit of liquid measure equivalent to about a quart.
(2) a container holding this amount.

1:12 am
gremlinn

got to last 9 and had to list - tough today
1:13 am
gremlinn

learned 3 new words
1:13 am
vashongin

bi 8 is something intel makes
1:13 am
gremlinn

it sounds like a cross between a belch and an insult
1:14 am
vashongin

the clue i just gave was for the bi 7
1:15 am
gremlinn

my comment was for the bi 8
1:15 am
gremlinn

(one of the 3 I'd never heard of)
1:15 am
vashongin

good one grem
1:15 am
jillibus

I'm afraid I'm still in the dark
1:15 am
flosey

working on it grem
1:16 am
gremlinn

bi4 + sc**** is an alcoholic drink
1:16 am
gremlinn

the online dictionary defines it as a variant of that bi4, oddly enough
1:17 am
flosey

tytyty grem, odd one
1:17 am
flosey

the word, that is
1:18 am
gremlinn

the pa8 looks very similar to that
1:18 am
jillibus

brain not working here
1:18 am
gremlinn

pa8 means "a Scot word for porridge"
1:18 am
jillibus

I can't think of an sc**** alcoholic drink
1:19 am
gremlinn

so just go for something that sounds vaguely the same
1:19 am
gremlinn

jilli: also hopsc****
1:19 am
gremlinn

(a children's game)
1:19 am
jmcnrick

not whiskey but sc****
1:20 am
jillibus

oh, stupid me -- ty grem!
1:20 am
jmcnrick

but i haven't found the bi4
1:20 am
gremlinn

bi4 sounds like what you might say when it's really cold
1:20 am
flosey

and thanks grem, for the pa8
1:21 am
gremlinn

phantom carnotite (I think it was a word in the first puzzle I played here)
1:21 am
jmcnrick

ty grem
1:21 am
jillibus

got that bi8 -- thanks, grem
1:21 am
gremlinn

and the pa8 is almost the same, and it sounds sort of like porridge
1:22 am
jmcnrick

oky i think i must crash
1:22 am
jmcnrick

good night all
1:23 am
jillibus

no def for the bi8 here, but google says "noun. onrush or driving force; impetus; a vibrant whirring sound."
1:23 am
jillibus

night jmc
1:24 am
jillibus

ah, got the pa8 too -- more thanks to grem
1:25 am
gremlinn

yeah, where I looked it up it said it was an intransitive verb meaning "to make or move with a [br4]"
1:25 am
gremlinn

Oops, bi4
1:26 am
gremlinn

the two 8s were new - the other new one was ap7
1:27 am
jillibus

no def here for pa8 either, but google agrees with grem
1:27 am
flosey

need that ap7 too
1:28 am
gremlinn

ap7 = a plant that reproduces by ap***xis (ap*** = same first 5 letters)
1:29 am
gremlinn

a + (many **ems rhyme) + (swing and a **ss!) + Hollywood a**or
1:29 am
flosey

ty grem
1:30 am
gremlinn

doesn't look much like a real word, does it?
1:30 am
jillibus

great clue, grem -- thanks!
1:31 am
flosey

no, doesn't
1:31 am
jillibus

I wonder what kind of reproduction that is,,,
1:31 am
flosey

never heard of it
1:32 am
gremlinn

[Ap******] is an asexual type of reproduction in which the plant embryos grow from egg cells without being fertilized by pollen—the male part of the plant.
1:32 am
jillibus

I think there are lots of never-heard-of-it words here
1:32 am
gremlinn

Scientists use it to clone some plants, apparently.
1:33 am
gremlinn

And make new genetic hybrids.
1:33 am
jillibus

ty grem, I'll sleep peacefully knowing that ;)
1:35 am
jillibus

carotine is "not found in the dcitionary"
1:35 am
jillibus

or even in the dictionary
1:38 am
gremlinn

yeah, I was confident I had my first 8 when I tried it
1:38 am
gremlinn

It does have "carotene" though
1:39 am
jillibus

ah, I guess carotene is the correct speling
1:41 am
gremlinn

I do see a lot of web results for "carotine" though
1:41 am
gremlinn

I think it is just a common misspelling.
1:45 am
jillibus

probably
1:55 am

hi Ruby how is your girl's limp today
2:34 am
rubyfoo

worse. her head practically hitsa the ground with each step.. She is eating normally, wagging her tail and isn't crying, and I massaged her foot, ankle, leg, elbow, shoulder etc without her limping, so tomorrow we go to the vet. It is very upsettin
2:35 am
rubyfoo

without her flinching* And of course DH is being nasty
2:35 am
KatieMcG

oh hold on in there, hopefully the vet can sort her out on Monday
2:35 am
rubyfoo

it is making me sick!
2:36 am
rubyfoo

normally, the vet would make a house call, but I think she needs an x-ray
2:37 am
KatieMcG

fingers crossed for her
2:37 am
rubyfoo

thank you
2:38 am
rubyfoo

I can't imagine what it could be. Wouldn't she cry if it was arthritis?
2:38 am

KatieMcG

i'm not sure ruby
2:39 am
rubyfoo

2:40 am

2:43 am
Sally-catlover

Could she have stone in her foot, or injury in some way?
2:43 am
rubyfoo

I checked all her parts as deeply as I could with my fingers and she never gflinched or pulled away
2:44 am
Sally-catlover

flosey, don't know if it's only one, but there is a favourite babblet: ne plus not bottom
2:44 am

Having to use lickety cos not much time, and I have to say of the words I have eventually monkeyed I have never ever heard of in my life (not that one)
3:24 am
Norma

I am finding that more the case each day, either these words are being made up or my vocabulary is as good as I thought it was lol
3:25 am
rubyfoo

great clue, sally, never would have gotten it
3:25 am
rubyfoo

I just pulled up the tallest dandelion I've ever seen, close to two feet!
3:25 am
Norma

The bi8 is case and point if that isn't a made up word I don't know what is lol
3:26 am
Sally-catlover

No, I couldn't find a definition for that one either
3:26 am
rubyfoo

that's funny, I got a bi7, can't imagine the 8!
3:26 am
Sally-catlover

And the last ca 6/24 is the silliest word I ever heard of!
3:27 am
Norma

Haven't got that one yet
3:27 am
rubyfoo

hint for it?
3:27 am
rubyfoo

or either 8?
3:28 am
Sally-catlover

the ca 6/24: start with a three-letter vehicle, then three letters which mean not bottom. Then look up the definition!!
3:29 am
Sally-catlover

can't even begin to clue the bi 8, except that it's bi plus double consonant, which should get you started.
3:29 am
Norma

bi4/6 + when you get an **** you scratch it, just change the first vowel
3:29 am
rubyfoo

that is ridiculous, but ty anyway, sally
3:30 am
Sally-catlover

did yoiu get the ca 6 ruby?
3:30 am
rubyfoo

yup, both of them. One should be capitalized !! and the other is just plain silly
3:30 am
rubyfoo

shd I make husband apologize, or just let it go?
3:31 am
rubyfoo

he does this every Sunday
3:31 am
Sally-catlover

?
3:32 am

3:32 am
Norma

Going to watch the Marathon see you all later
3:32 am
rubyfoo

it's horrible because we're both upset about the dog and I really don't need additional tension!
3:33 am
rubyfoo

sally, you're the expert at calm.....
3:34 am
Sally-catlover

ruby, just one suggestion then I must go (hear stirring noises from upstairs!). Can you just say to him, look, either we live here together and try to get along and be civilised to each other, or do you want to go our separate ways? I know from what you've said before you can't do that, but the choice might actually focus him and see what his actions do to you. Just a thought, and said in a nice reasonable way, not an accusing way :-) I know it's difficult ...
3:35 am
rubyfoo

thank you sally, you are very wise. I'll try it
3:36 am

4:21 am
anike

My daughters car was trashed - needs a new roof and bonnet. We need our family room ceiling painted etc - had a flood there.
4:21 am
anike

Troy Buswell is a fool to himself - intelligent man who never grew up
4:22 am
sandyloo

I don't like any of the politicians we have around at the moment
4:23 am
anike

Not an inspiring bunch really, are they sandy?
4:23 am
sandyloo

We have a house in Nedlands - broken windows, leak in roof and the girls that rent it all had their cars dented
4:23 am
sandyloo

Indeed they are not Ani, especially 'Mr Sheen'
4:23 am
lynxxx

were you both covered by insurance for everything?
4:24 am
anike

My son works in Nedlands at a car dealership - every car, new and used, was damaged. Son was fortunately on his way home early so his precious car survived.
4:24 am
sandyloo

We are covered for damage to the house- yes! Only one of the three girls was covered for her car - I feel so sorry for them
4:25 am
anike

Insurance covers all our problems
4:26 am
anike

I sometimes wish we could go back to some of the old ones
4:26 am
sandyloo

I had just put the horses in the stable when the hail started here, so I felt happy for them - We sat and watched the storm for ages out here at the 'farm' it was fantastic to see the rain- our paddocks are turned green now
4:26 am
anike

Politicians, I mean - but not the WA Inc. ones
4:27 am
sandyloo

My mum has a hailstone in her freezer which is as big as a golfball - she's in Applecross

4:36 am
sandyloo

Wow, How funny!! Mr Jeans always taught Grade 5 I think and he was my favourite teacher
4:36 am
sandyloo

4:41 am

4:42 am
sandyloo

I have met a lot of old pupils as I grew up , they have mostly done incredibly well over the years
4:42 am
anike

Brett and Jonathon Townsend - Brett died in grade 7
4:43 am
sandyloo

I remember Sheryl Kay, Diane Johnson, Julie Fletcher Bruce Byfield and lots of other
4:43 am

Someone you might know because he was your age - Bob Symes (another bank brat)
4:43 am
sandyloo

How did Brett die? That sounds awful
4:43 am
anike

Brain tumour
4:44 am
sandyloo

Oh how horrible and very sad
4:44 am
sandyloo

Small world eh?
4:45 am
anike

It was - the class was told at start of year that he was sick and we were to be protective of him - he passed away just after I left.
4:45 am
sandyloo

You and I have been on Babble for ages and we now discover this? How fabulous
4:45 am

It is a small world indeed.

5:38 am
lynxxx

Do you get flu shots each season?
5:39 am
sprite

yes I do. Still, not all viruses are covered by the shots. My resistance is zero since the allergy to antibiotics. Will take some time to rebuild.
5:40 am
lynxxx

I hope this one passes quickly for you
5:41 am

thank you. I am sure it will. If tomorrow brings warm weather, I will take Caya and myself outside, in a blanket, in the sun. Much better than indoors!

automobile + not bottom
8:40 am
hurshy

so i heard something interesting in a talk yesterday which never would have occurred to me. the talk was about service animals for the disabled. the speaker mentioned, as an aside, that it has occurred to some that it would make much more sense to pair the physically disabled with the mentally disabled. the mentally disabled could cook and so forth and be better at doing physical stuff than, say, a helper monkey, and would be in a more protected and good environment than a lot of group homes and things, and both would have companionship. yet people don't do it, and what's more, people are very willing to donate money for training helper monkeys, but not willing to donate for this kind of thing, even though it would be much more economical. thoughts?
8:40 am

opps wrong word, sorry

Crosssy!!!! I need to ask a question
8:41 am
crosshair

go right ahead annie;))
8:41 am
hurshy

so wherein do you think the aversion lies? does it seem like one party would be "using" the other, rather than it being mutually beneficial? or do we just think it's so much cooler and cuter to use monkeys?
8:42 am
periwinkle

Cancun is not in the grid ;)
8:42 am

carribean, but different
8:42 am
Flask1

would it not be too mentally challenging for the physically disabled person?
8:42 am
hurshy

i don't know, flask - in what way would you imagine?
8:42 am
Anniebrook

crossy, do you know about HDMI wires or cables?
8:43 am
crosshair

ok for example,my wife needs a seeing eye dog,would a mentaly disabled person be able to judge correctly safety in all situations when my wife is moving around outside? just a thought
8:43 am
hurshy

*wants to know about HDMI also*
8:43 am
Flask1

well....they would have to have their wits about them at ALL times.....
8:44 am
hurshy

don't they already have to?
8:44 am
Flask1

and would they have accepts responsibility for the mentally disabled partner?
8:44 am
hurshy

that is a good question, for sure.
8:44 am
crosshair

i know many cables and wire hook ups but that is not one of them(can you be specific as to usage of this wire type?
8:45 am
periwinkle

bbl
8:45 am

crossy - i think that you could probably make sure that they could - you wouldn't have the very severely mentally handicapped involved.

8:46 am
Anniebrook

I have a flat screen TV that I want to hook up to High Def. but the picture sometimes is distorted and the sound skips. I was told a HDMI would fix this but before I go out and spend $80 I would like to know if this is the solution.
8:46 am

goes too fast for ME, Crossy. Sometimes the cat unplugs cables just to tease me.

i want to hook up my laptop to play online videos on my HD tv, and i don't know, even after googling, how to make sure i get the right one for my gen of macbook and how to know if it will have both audio and video and whether i already have too much other crap plugged into the TV to do it!
8:48 am
crosshair

i DO know that not just any flat screen should be hooked up to high def,you need a high def tv for a high def hook up,and cable companies usually supply all cables with ther high def boxes
8:49 am
Boobear

does anyone have the ca 7
8:49 am

Sorry Hurshy wasn't ignoring you......pc crashed!

8:52 am
crosshair

i know it can be done hurshy,i was in staples the other day and they had 6 different lappys all hooked up to one giant flat screen for demo usage
8:52 am

i suppose that's the key, go into a store to get a cable, instead of buying online.

Our French neighbor finds the American attitude towards eating rabbit puzzling. She went to a supermarket when she first arrived--a market stocked with all kinds and cuts of meat, but no rabbit. When she asked about it, the meat counter guy reacted as though she's asked for a nice tender roast of baby!

Because I never had a pet rabbit--in fact, they're kind of pests in my neighborhood, but we did have a succession of guinea pigs when the kids were little. I have no objection to others who eat guinea pig, but I'm not sure I could myself.

I think it's the other way around Shirlock - all the Americans I know seem to eat such a wide range of food from other cultures. I think they'd probably be surprised that other countries eat such a predictable menu.

Some Americans are pretty unadventurous--my mother refuses to eat anything remotely "ethnic" including fast food tacos! Others are more adventurous--though we still underutilize organ meats in this country. I feel that if you are going to eat animals, you ought to eat as much of them as possible so as not to waste the sacrifice of a being.

Here's a story about Americans and organ meat: My husband (who is British) makes a fine steak and kidney pie. We were having some guests over and asked if they'd like to try it. The wife said, "would you mind substituting for the steak? I don't mind the kidney beans, of course." !

Could be suet though. (In fact, there should be, in my culinary opinion.)
10:31 am
SamanthaJoy

Isn't that kind of the definition? It's a suet pudding?
10:32 am
jan

True, but nowadays a lot of people substitute vegetable shortening. Which doesn't rally substitute that well, because it melts at a lower temperature and makes the pudding too hard and dense.

Me too -- are you Pini there?
2:26 pm

I attended a dog parade with my dog and my sister's dog. We only saw pa 4/5 of the parade since we got there late. I'm surprised my sister's dog didn't cause a ri 4/4 and bi 4/6 anyone in the cro 5/14.She is a ti 4/6 dog,but can be feisty. She's a bi5/18 sometimes. Sometimes she can have a big ch 4/6 on her shoulder At times I want to just ch4/7 off her mouth because she barks a lot. The po5/12 that I am trying to make is that she's a great dog,but she's a pain sometimes. Anyway, I wanted to push her in a ca 4/5 during the parade, but she would not stay in it. She and my dog tr 4/4ed along with all of the other dogs. My sister's dog doesn't like to goto other places much. She likes to say inside a ho 4/8 house. I in5/10duced the dogs to many people. I do not think she liked it there. She was it 4/6ing to leave and hell be 4/6 on going home. Jack, the dog that's mi4/5, loved the parade.He was not impa4/6ed by it much.There were vendors there so I bought some na5/14s.After the parade we went in4/4 a diner to eat lunch.Now I'm going to go in 4/4 the kitchen to make dinner. I will be here off and on to clue for the rest of the ni4/4.Hope this helped out

the BI are the first two letters, the first number is the number of letters (in this case 4), the number after is the po5 value (in this case 6)

10:43 pm
Nef

okay, I just hit half way and did the same thing with my list. I'm still missing the bottom ro4/4 on that list, so I need to look for another ro 4 letter word where each letter is worth only 1 point and it has to follow the word above it

Hi Mark

Pinikula

10:56 pm
gremlinn

figured it would be easier to open the archive and search for "bi6" in the browser
10:56 pm
Pinikula

smarty!

Marc Freeman

Thanks gremlinn but the bi clue was for bi6/27 not bi6/24?
10:56 pm
Nef

(dog's gotta "help" now. seems to need some attention)
10:56 pm
Pinikula

***graphy + metal can

* wonders if zesty's coming back with beer for all *
11:01 pm
Nef

I hope so (even if I don't drink the stuff). I'd use it to activate my compost pile

Thank you Zesty for asking the questions about how to understand babblese! I had been wondering the same thing. Thank you to Nef, Pink and all the rest of you for the instructions on how to use Lickety. I now know what I am doing for the first time since I started playing this game!
11:03 pm
cybernan

did you finish pini?
11:03 pm
Nef

add some sugar and mix it and the beer together, put on your compost and boy does the bacteria get happy and you get good black dirt! :-)
11:03 pm
Pinikula

yeah, fuzzy!!! glad to have helped! :)
11:03 pm
Jellen

Hi, nan and fuzzybunny
11:03 pm
Pinikula

I did, nan ;)
11:04 pm
Pinikula

I'll have to remember that, Nef ;)
11:04 pm
Pinikula

oh, and welcome aboard, fuzzy
11:04 pm

some new players, I see --- welcom fuzzy and zesty
11:05 pm
fuzzybunny

Thanks, I have been an avid boggle/wordsplay fan for a long time and heard about babble from players over there.
11:05 pm
Nef

hi nan and fuzzy. Don't be afraid to ask questions, fuzzy. We all have to learn someday
11:05 pm
gremlinn

that's how I heard about it
11:05 pm
Pinikula

glad to have you, fuzzy
11:06 pm
fuzzybunny

Glad to be here! You are all very helpful and friendly. How do you get an avatar and profile?
11:06 pm
Pinikula

you turn pro (by paying a one-time lifetime membership fee)
11:07 pm
gremlinn

But no need to rush into that - I think you get 2 weeks with all the features, and after that it just hides some of the clues unless you upgrade
11:07 pm
Pinikula

(your fireworks go away after the first 2-wks, going pro lets you have 'em forever)
11:07 pm
Nef

So, for around $15.00, you can look good like us! ;-)
11:07 pm
fuzzybunny

Will have to wait until tomorrow, it is getting late and I get up at 6. See you all tomorrow. Thanks so much for the help tonight.
11:08 pm
Pinikula

gee, right to the po5, nef! LOL
11:08 pm

11:09 pm
Nef

I've been away from the game for most of the week, Pini. Sorry for being too blunt! :-P
11:09 pm
Pinikula

oh, sorry to have missed your sparklers!
11:09 pm
cybernan

hi tanja
11:09 pm
Pinikula

not blunt at all, nef...I just thought the cut to the chase was cute! :)
11:10 pm
Nef

hi Tanja. I just leaned all about ANZAC Day this weekend
11:10 pm
cybernan

11:10 pm
Pinikula

cya soon, nan
11:12 pm
Nef

Pini, I'm just being weird tonight. Trying to finish the grid; but wanting to chat more. DH has had a relapse in his MS and is on high-dose steroids; I think I'm acting like *I'm* the one on the steroids!
11:13 pm
Tanja

yes big weekend here in australia - the kids are all sleeping between the four of them they all did a night vigil then a dawn service each then 2 day services and finished a dusk service - lots os sleeping today:)
11:13 pm

May I please have a clue for ro5-14 the 2nd? Thannks
11:13 pm
Pinikula

oh my, sorry to hear, nef...you're not being weird at all, it's more cute/fun than anything! You're definitely making me grin! :)
11:13 pm
Tanja

and this is a horrible gridI am only halfway
11:13 pm

11:14 pm

it is, tanja
11:15 pm

wow tanja...quiet little ones now?
11:15 pm
Pinikula

and, nef, I do hope it turns around some and he feels better...
11:15 pm
Tanja

clue for the bi7 please
11:16 pm
Nef

I don't know what the correct saying would be for ANZAC Day, Tanja. But I think it's important that no one forget what it's a;; about.
11:16 pm
Pinikula

auto***graphy + potato ****s and dip
11:17 pm
Tanja

the most common words used are "lest we forget: and "we shall remember them"
11:17 pm
Nef

Pini, he's doing better; that's why I have time to Babble. Steroids are wonderful but the steroid high effect is unbelieveable internally.
11:18 pm
Nef


thanks, Tanja. We shall remember them for sure
11:18 pm
Pinikula

* wince * still hope it does good; glad you have some time to rest (although not sure babble is rest)
11:20 pm
Nef

LOL! I take whatever breaks I can from the stress, Pini. Babble is a good break
11:20 pm
Pinikula
