2:07 am
jillibus

There are various permutations. If you get one of the paperbacks of Daily Telegraph cryptics, there should be a guide to solving in it.
2:08 am
jillibus

Yes, grem, you got that one!
2:08 am
ChuggaBOOM!

ill look some up for fun later thanks
2:08 am
gremlinn

An ear-deafening cymbal.
2:08 am

Maybe nowadays you can google how to solve cryptics.
2:09 am
gremlinn

Answer of form: ____ ____ with the words anagrams (length 10)
2:10 am
jillibus

I did a little bit of composing cryptics some years ago, and made a list of anagrams -- pages and pages of them.

oy vay, soodle!
2:12 am
Christine

Sometimes the clue will rev up a little: the word that is to be switched around is part of two words -- the end of one, the start of another ... just to keep you on your toes.
2:14 am
gremlinn

Answer to: "You find the ____ in a box sliced through the center; you find the ____ by box slices both above and below. I am ____ you that by simply ____ letter order you are ____ all five words in an equivalence." ... triangle, integral, alerting, altering, relating
2:15 am
jillibus

Very good, grem!
2:15 am
gremlinn

hehe, a bit hard, huh?
2:15 am
jillibus

The Brit clues are more playful, though, eh Soodle?
2:16 am
ChuggaBOOM!

do seitans tansies sestina tisanes nasties
2:16 am
gremlinn

seitans won't work here (sheitans does)
2:17 am
ChuggaBOOM!

sheitans is older twl, seitan is newer.. still included
2:18 am
gremlinn

Did you try "scungy" in this grid? It's just slang, I guess.
2:18 am
ChuggaBOOM!

or anestri retsina retains retinas stainer stearin ratines nastier antsier
2:19 am
gremlinn

pares, etc.
2:20 am
gremlinn

I think pares has the most anagrams...is that right?
2:20 am
ChuggaBOOM!

no im sure theres much more than that
2:21 am
ChuggaBOOM!

i see.. spare pares pears reaps rapes parse presa prase apers apres asper
2:21 am
gremlinn

Huh, apparently M-W dictionary lists: "anestri, asterin, eranist, nastier, ratines, resiant, restain, retains, retinas, retsina, sainter, stainer, starnie, stearin"
2:21 am
ChuggaBOOM!

sowpods
2:21 am
ChuggaBOOM!

probably
2:22 am
gremlinn

And that's missing antsier.
2:22 am
ChuggaBOOM!

messed
2:23 am
gremlinn

Well then, I guess pares is defeated.
2:23 am
ChuggaBOOM!

i think theres even one greater than that
2:23 am
ChuggaBOOM!

one or two actually
2:24 am
ChuggaBOOM!

or three... i remember a lot
2:24 am
gremlinn

That same page I found the M-W on says: "Word Ways has for some years been collecting anagrams of 'aeginrst'. William Tunstall-Pedoe indicates that a whopping 157 of these have some justification."
2:25 am
gremlinn

I found one of them today (astringe)
2:25 am
Christine

Great, gremlinn. Jillibus, you piqued my interest in the cryptic crosswords, just ordered two books from Amazon.
2:26 am
ChuggaBOOM!

i know many 7 letterers with 5+ anagrams
2:26 am
jillibus

Well, the thing about the Brit cryptics is that they use real words.
2:26 am
jillibus

Have fun, Christine!
2:27 am
gremlinn

Do I get a referral bonus?
2:27 am
Christine

My Mother would do the one in The Lady magazine, and we'd "help" her.
2:27 am
gremlinn

Oh, you said only jillibus.
2:27 am
jillibus

You may have to look up solutions in the back of the books quite often until you get the hand of it -- but even that is fun,
2:28 am
jillibus

I used to "help" my Dad too, but with Daily Telegraph or Sunday Times ones.
2:28 am
jillibus

*the hang of it*
2:29 am
gremlinn

I used to play a game where it started out with something like: _ _ _ _ _ _ and you had to guess the letters one at a time, but I never got the hang of it.
2:29 am
jillibus

Didn't play that one, grem.
2:29 am
Christine

Pre 24hour television days, chidren (and some adults) played a lot of pencil/paper word games. We played "what's in a name" writing a name, or long word, at the top of the page, then we'd see how many words we could find.
2:30 am
gremlinn

Ooh, slipped that pun right by you.
2:30 am
jillibus

oh -- are you talking about Hangman, haha?
2:30 am

Gremlinn, is that like hangman?

BBS need to check pot in oven
4:28 am

4:28 am
herinfernallady

Need to head desk
4:28 am
FMitch

yay I see the Lipstick tree is back in the grid again, ued to appear very frequently.
4:29 am
FMitch

oh herin, why?
4:29 am
herinfernallady

Because I need a suit a practical suit
4:29 am
herinfernallady

Girls suits are stupidly expensive
4:30 am
FMitch

know that feeling, received a small catalogue the other day, had a look through and thought mm nice trousers and they all cost over £100!
4:31 am
FMitch

pair of jeans £89 - chucked out catalogue.
4:31 am
herinfernallady

I don't get it. Guys suits fit and they are $200 for a good suit and sometimes 2 pants as well or a shirt
4:32 am
FMitch

Its a pain in the butt isn't it.
4:32 am
herinfernallady

My size is 18 DD 42inch high waist so nothing fits
4:34 am
FMitch

yup too short too long wrong cut.
4:35 am
herinfernallady

Too small in the bust or fits in the bust and too big in the middle.
4:35 am
herinfernallady

I figure that I have to look into it now so I can layby for jobs
4:36 am
FMitch

good thinking. How about having a look for a local tailor or dressmaker who could modfy a suit to fit you?
4:37 am
herinfernallady

Yah my friend is on telly
4:37 am
FMitch

might cost a bit but would be a good investment if you got a classic style.
4:38 am
FMitch

yay
4:38 am
herinfernallady

It is that show Four Weddings
4:39 am
FMitch

not sure we get that over here.

4:41 am
herinfernallady

N and D did it and they got to go to all the other weddings paid for by the show
4:42 am
FMitch

BRB there is a fly in the office that is driving me nuts and I am going to get it out the window or die inthe attempt!

Fly dispatched out of the window successfully.
4:51 am
lynxxx

Not as enthusiastic as me - but thought iut was very good value for money. Don't think that that is any sort of criteria for buying art myself
4:51 am
FMitch

yes, art is a very personal thing.
4:53 am
lynxxx

that said - it is bl**dy big and the frame is lovely and it is mounted very well
4:53 am
FMitch

Ata, Tony Blair is on the prog "This Morning" seems so strange but I guess he is plugging his book.
4:53 am
Atalante

that does seem odd!!! I knew I was watching old Dr WHo episodes for a reason!
4:53 am
lynxxx

Have you guys seen "The Ghost Writer", speaking of Blair
4:54 am
FMitch

no lynxx, do expand.
4:55 am
lynxxx

I recommend it, v good movie - not directly based on Blair (maybe a bit though)
4:56 am
FMitch

JMC...the TA 5/10 is to mar or spoil something (like one's reputation). Rhymes with what you put on your walls to add color

8:47 am
Anniebrook

I remember that time quite clearly..so so sad
8:47 am
jmcnrick

how sad
8:48 am
Scrabbler

Finally at 37 wks labor was induced because Mary was wobbly, dizzy, puking + needed baby out so a MRI could be done.
8:49 am
m9f9l

oh that is intense.
8:50 am
Scrabbler

So tragic, m9. She died 1 yr and 6 days after the baby was born, after a year of suffering.
8:51 am

oh... I'm SO sorry!
8:51 am
Anniebrook

so much heartache

She did write in a journal, and dictated some info on tapes. It was difficult for her + all of us to reconcile her Christian faith (God is in control) with leaving husband with 3 little kids and no mommy (why would that be part of God's plan?).
8:54 am
Scrabbler

Enough sadness. Let's tackle this grid!

Scrabs - listen to this - I went to our local community college yesterday to take a placement test for an Italian course......
8:57 am
Scrabbler

RiverDance's birthday was yesterday, as well as Aloy's.
8:58 am
JBV

and I placed out of all the levels they offer - so the professor offered to meet with me individually to help me polish up my Italian
8:58 am
Scrabbler

And you are fluent? (Hahaha)
8:58 am
m9f9l

sweet!!! that is cool JBV!
8:58 am
JBV

I expect I will have to pay her as a tutor, but we haven't worked that out yet
8:58 am
Scrabbler

Wow! Had you studied Italian in the past? Or did you learn it that quickly?
8:59 am
JBV

Oh, Hi m9! Thank you for your help yesterday - we are still on the trail of the true ancestor!
8:59 am
Scrabbler

It's the 14 verb tenses that make me stumble as I study Italian.
8:59 am
Scrabbler

m9, are you also Italian?
8:59 am

but the hunt is fun!

Scrabs, Italian is in my DNA, but never spoke it as a child - learned Spanish and French in school, so I had a really good language background, then took 1 course in Italian, three trips to Italy and that's it! it clicked!
9:00 am

9:03 am
JBV

that is so wonderful, Pini
9:04 am
Scrabbler

I checked last week. I really need to study consistently rather than intermittently. I always say "Someday I will be conversational in Italian." Someday is now.
9:04 am
Scrabbler

Cool, Pini!!
9:04 am
JBV

I think I'll change my photo - I have a picture of our "ancestral" home, too - maybe not to 1640, but definitely from the 1800s

cosdem

and animals with blue eyes are as well.. usually
6:48 pm

ruru,was reading back.picking a home for your parent(s)is a hard go,you spend a hot of time to find a place where they dont just push their wheelchair in a corner and forget about them,if they are not well endowed you have to figure out their pension in combination with govt subsidies to get as close to the monthly home bill as you can,and sometimes sadly you have to sift through a lifetime of stuff and memories of a entire persons lifetime and ruthlessly cull it as a room in a home is much smaller than a house.if their mental capacity comes and goes,you may get derided and cursed for your choices even though it was done with love...not fun at all ruru

lol, seriously, it went well. seems to be a good group. one who cried for about 20 seconds at the beginning, got over it. cried at the end, but that was mostly exhaustion. another who was mostly shut down on me, didn't respond to any questions, etc. i'm thinking there are some processing issues going on there, as he did come up and give me a hug and start talking on his own, but when i asked him a question right after that, he did the blank look again. the rest seem to be nice...i have almost all the names down, have to think on one or two stilll.
