Sent you my list Lennie - I love collective nouns. I was surprised to think I knew a lot of those.

A few more:

an addition of mathematicians
a blaze of pyromaniacs
an attitude of teenagers
a huddle of lawyers and how about
a knuckle of gangsters.

Play On!
love and kisses, Jan

OK I am confused??? Is each line a word? What about the horse line does it change at Hyenas or is that part of the line?
Sorry if I am being a pain but I don't get it.
Thanks for calling the words Lennie I don't think I could handle keeping it straight.

I'm so sorry, Barb. Yes, Hyenas is another line. THAT'S why I had 1 more to add when I counted after I thought I'd had 155! It ALL makes sense now..........:whacky:

How about we just ignore Hyenas ~ I'll delete it. We should then have 155.

Barb, either pick just the animal's name or the whole line, doesn't matter. I'll post the whole line though.

Sorry for the confusion. You gave me that reminder that I was posting the words this month when I'd TOTALLY forgotten and then I panicked to get them out ASAP. I didn't take the time to format it in a clearer fashion.

Make sense now?? Lennie :re:

Sure you have, Lyn. Once again it's me not making it clear. A "herd of elephants" for example: "herd" is the collective noun. It's a grouping.

The list should have read:

Bed of Oysters
Herd of Elephants
Pod of Pelicans

Etc., etc. Once again, I'm sorry for the format.

Wow! Okay everyone, let's give a high five to Eagle Eye Kelly. :up:

She's the only one who noticed that the Squirrels were listed twice. Still took me a minute since there were several others between the two Squirrels.......sneaky little buggers that they are..........:shock:

I'm putting the Cackling Hyenas back into play and taking out one Squirrel just to keep the numbers right.

Thanks, Kelly.

sounds like an Disney American football line up -

how about a script of lawyers?
(I love collective nouns! - I've loved 'em since I was a kid...)

You are too funny, Jan. No, wait, I'm too funny!!!! Okay, we're both too funny.....:nc:

Here we go! It's time for the kick-off (so to speak). :bg:

The first five are:

Deer (General) - A herd, leash, or gang of deer.
Fox - A leash, skulk, earth or lead of fox (foxes?).
Turkeys - A rafter, gang, or posse of turkeys.
Turtles - A bale, nest turn or dole of turtles.
Vipers - A generation or nest of vipers.

We've got plenty of deer, fox and wild turkeys around here. Turtles you need to go down the road to the desert though. Vipers? No. Plenty of snakes though!

You remember that scene in Robin Hood ( the one where he is a fox and Marion is a vixen)You know, Disney rewrites History to suit himself?

We none of us (in England that is) could work out why when they were playing football they had helmets on and were running carrying the ball. More like rugby....

I sure Robin Hood was English... Saxon at that...heigh ho.

None for me today - perhaps I'll go and play croquet with the flamingoes....

Words for the 2nd of July

Dang, is it hot! 98 yesterday going up to 104 over the next few days. Our nearby desert has temps going up to 119!!

Came within an inch of evacuating yesterday due to a fire that came as close as 1/2 mile from our house. What an incredibly stressful afternoon it was. My little Nissan Frontier is still packed up and ready to go except for a very few items that I've taken out.

The words:

Apes - A shrewdness of Apes.
Baboons - A troop or flange of Baboons.
Bloodhounds - A Sute of Bloodhounds.
Moles - A labor, company, or movement of Moles.
Spiders - A cluster or clutter of Spiders.


Glad we're back on board (literally). First thing I saw this morning was that I was BANNED from the board!! Good job, Mary, once again at getting things under control.

I thought I had offended someone as well! I was scared that I was not going to get to play this game--ever again. I was really sad until Mary e-mailed back (and Bama said she had the same issues). I'm here now and up to a whopping total of 1.

At least it makes a nice regular pattern Pauline...

We have so much rain and flooding here Lennie that assessors from Katrina are coming over to help with the insurance claims. You can see pictures here..http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;jsessionid=2JXGSXSWECJRJQFIQMFCFGGAVCBQ YIV0?xml=/news/exclusions/slideshowindex.xml

Here in East Anglia it is wet but not flooded - up where Domestic Goddess lives it may not be so dry.

Hope you stay cool, Lennie.

I got 2 today.

We've had a bit of flooding here too Jan - interesting relationships between events. The bushfires of summer contributed to a lot of the problems - water just ran off a lot of ground - and the bushfires were worse because of the drought.

Although there was a lot of damage at least some of the water ended up in the dams.

The old saying "it never rains but it pours" is certainly true here at the moment.

Okay, Jan, be nice. We have no ill will toward you English. :bg: As a matter of fact I celebrated after the parade at a party with a couple I like very much that are from your country.

At 4:30 this afternoon it was still 106 @%$%#$ degrees! I'm starting to get a little cranky! :mad: Luckily we cool down at night but tomorrow promises to be just as hot! We've got air conditioning in our master bedroom but that's all. I can look forward to a cool room at least for the night.

Tomorrow early I'll be leaving to pick up dh and bro from their fishing trip. (No cracks about me waiting at the docks for the boats to come in! :bg: )They'll be relaxed and stinky no doubt. :bg: In view of my early departure I'll post tomorrow's words now since when I post "early" it's still late for a lot of you! :wink:

Words for the 5th of July, my Mom's 77th b'day!! :bday:

Cormorants - A gulp of Cormorants. (Don't you love it?)
Crocodiles - A bask or float of Crocodiles.
Scorpions - A bed or nest of Scorpions.
Sheep - A drove, flock, down, hurtle, or fold of Sheep.
Snipe - A walk or wisp of Snipe. (What the heck's a Snipe anyway?)

I didn't have a chance to check in yesterday, I ended up with a bbq in my house but that's a whole nother story. So I have 1 word from yesterday and none from today so I am up to 3 words.
A couple of years ago while visiting my cousin in Nevada we spent July 4th with a friend of hers who is from England. She had all red, white and blue dishes and decorations but she was wearing black because she was in mourning over England losing the colonies.

I'm back. I wasn't really gone, but between MIL visiting and li'l bro w/SIL & baby visiting, I've been rather distracted.

I have a big, fat 2. :nc:

OK, here's a strange question. We have a bird around here that's cry sounds like it's saying, "We need ya." I asked my fil what it was and he said a woodpecker, but that doesn't sound like any woodpecker I've ever heard. Does anyone possibly have a clue what it is?

We have lots of bats around here. I love to go outside at dusk and watch them swoop down over the pond catching mosquitoes. Some nights we count at least a dozen over our heads.

Oh, Carol. I'm guessing we're at about the same level of discomfort. I think I prefer the dry heat though (as I sit here in the 86 degree sewing room sweating very unladylike..........:cool:

Jan, I did take the bat outside before the execution. I felt sorry for it and for taking it from my cat, Frank. He was so proud. He's the best spider and moth killer too. I try to save all beasties by setting them outside whenever I can. I'd make a good Buddist, I guess, if it wasn't for the fact that I eat meat. I really don't want to though. It just seems so hard to come up with interesting meals every day.

One good thing about this damn heat. I think I've lost a few pounds from not eating. Who want to eat? Even my pig-dog lab isn't eating much and THAT says a lot!! :shock:

7/7/07 Lucky, lucky day! Maybe I'll go gamble.......just kidding.......maybe I'll get married, oh I forgot, I'm already married.........maybe I'll have a baby, oh, can't do that either, well, I can but he can't! Guess I'll just have to settle for lucky words today and hopefully some sewing. Haven't sewn in weeks........

The Words:

Asses - A pace of Asses. (Always too many of those around.)
Ants - A colony, army or swarm of ants. (Got plenty of those.)
Dogs - A kennel of Dogs. (Got plenty of those too!)
Grasshoppers - A cloud of Grasshoppers. (Haven't seen one of those in ages.)
Greyhounds - A leash of Greyhounds. (Anyone know the rule about using "grey" vs. "gray" generally speaking???

I just got back from Nephew's wedding. Wedding was at 1 reception isn't until 6. I came home to clean house before DGS's 9th Birthday party here tomorrow. He wants water play & their yard isn't big enough. It is supposed to be 94 degrees here.

I am up to 5 now.

Lennie, as far as I know, both spelling are valid in the UK.:bg: but that's us - we like to spell thnigs funny. When I was little and went on a bus there was a sign that said
"Tickets must be shewn" and that was a valid spelling of the past tense of 'to show'. Nowadays everybbody spells it "shown".

Oh boy, Barb, that might be a good sign - 7 on 7/7/07.

I really don't know, Jan, I think it's usually a "gray" day for example but then there's "greyhound" so should the color always be with an "e"? Confusing this language we share. Maybe someone will know.

gray
O.E. grg (Mercian grei), from P.Gmc. *grwyaz (cf. O.N. grar, O.Fris. gre, Du. graw, Ger. grau), from PIE *ghreghwos, but no certain cognates outside Gmc. The distinction between British grey and U.S. gray developed 20c. Gray as figurative for "Southern troops in the U.S. Civil War" is first recorded 1863, in reference to their uniform color.

as opposed to
greyhound
O.E. grighund, from grig- "bitch" + hund "dog" (see hound). The name has nothing to do with color, and most are not gray. The O.N. form of the word is preserved in Hjalti's couplet that almost sparked war between pagans and Christians in early Iceland:
Vilkat go geyja
grey ykkjumk Freyja

"I will not blaspheme the gods,
but I think Freyja is a bitch"

There you are - you feel btter now! so 'gray' is from the Old norse for the colour = grar
and grey (as in grey hound) is from the Old Norse grig meaning bitch.

Don't you just love etymology! I love the fact that 'to evesdrop' (again Old Norse in origin) refers to the water that splashes off the roof - that being where you have to stand to listen in through the window...

We have a great module we teach at school to the year 6's (11 years old) about the origins of words in the English language - Pyjama, bungalo and shampoo for example are all from the Indian Sub-continent.

Isn't that interesting, Jan? Origins are fascinating.

When I checked it just seemed that by and large it was English/Canadian (grey) vs. American (gray). It was that simple and either or either :re: are acceptable in each country.

There are some very nice sites on etymology. (I wrote entymology first........I must be going buggy! :re: )

Finally a break from the heat. It's just a beautiful summer day today albeit still very warm. We've even got rain predicted over the course of the next three days. My guess it won't happen but the thought's nice. Hope it gets as far as you, Lyn. It's a southern storm.

Caterpillars - An army of Caterpillars. (Don't see many.)
Deer (Buck) - A brace or clash of Deer. (We have plenty of Mule deer here.)
Eagles - A convocation of Eagles. (We do have a pair of Bald eagles over by the lake.)
Herons - A sedge, siege or hedge of Herons. (Nearby.)
Nightingales - A watch of Nightingales. (Lovely name for a bird.)

Up to 5 now.

Grey is the only acceptable form here in Australia (I know I'm late for the conversation) but give it time and it'll probably creep into usage. It did with colour/color and a few others.

Beavers - A colony of Beavers.
Chinchilla - A colony of Chinchillas.
Tigers - A streak or ambush of Tigers.
Whales - A pod or gam of whales.
Woodpeckers - A descent of Woodpeckers.

In the third grade all the kids at our local school go whalewatching. I went twice having two kids. It was great and we saw quite a few each time. This is in Jan. and Feb. that they pass by on their southern migration.

Woodpeckers. Got 'em. By the ton. I watch one regularly out my kitchen window in an oak. Can't believe they can do that! :shock: My head hurts just watching them. :re:

Woodpeckers have a double skull, Lennie - one inside the other as it were, so cushioning the brain from all that percussive maintainence. A bit like wearing a crash helmet. What I find disgusting is that their tongues are so long start at the nostril, coil back over the head and emerge again in the throat of the bird where the two halves rejoin to form the tongue as we see it. This means that their tongue can be stabbed out with great force in order to catch the prey. (At least, so the nice lady from the RSPB said)

Don't you just love " a streak of tigers" - roll it around in your mouth when you say it end enjoy the poetry of the language. I bet a streak of tigers is black and yellow striped.

oh, and I am up to 10!!!!

Yeah Jan, I did know that about the skull of the Woodpecker but not about the tongue, yech.....

Remember Little Black Sambo?

"And the Tigers were very, very
angry, but still they would not let go of each other's tails.
And they were so angry, that they ran round the tree,
trying to eat each other up, and they ran faster
and faster, till they were whirling round so fast
that you couldn't see their legs at all.

And they still ran faster and faster and faster, till
they all just melted away, and there was nothing
left but a great big pool of melted butter (or
"ghi," as it is called in India) round
the foot of the tree."

I got one more. :up:

I remember my 1st grade teacher reading us Little Black Sambo. You can't find that book in the school library anymore.
I also remember hearing the story told on the Kukla, Fran, and Ollie show. Anyone remember that? http://kukla.tv/how.html It must have been reruns that I saw. :wink: The lady had a pair of little shoes, pants, a red coat, and an umbrella to show when she told the story.

I used to tell the story to my son when he was little (what I could remember of it) and we would make tiger butter. :wink: (Chocolate chips and butterscotch chips melted and swirled together over waxed paper, then you break it into chunks after it hardens)

My FIL says he has a copy of Little Black Sambo that he had when he was a little boy. He's 83 now. He's never dug it out for us tho.

I'm up to 10...been busy babysitting that new grandbaby of mine-doesn't leave much time for anything else.

It was 103 this afternoon driving home-and I did it with the windows open-funny how 103 can feel so cool compared to the 115 we've been having! No rain yet though.

I haven't thought of Little Black Sambo in years!! I'm not sure my kids were ever exposed to it even. I do remember Kukla, Fran and Ollie too altho it wasn't a favorite show

I'm at 9 as well.

I only vaguely remember the story but I do remember that I had the story as a talking book on a 45 single.

The bit that stuck in my head was the song that was sung on the record of this particular story.

"... and they ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and stopped."

Of course this gives you no idea of the tune that went with it.

I know for me at least the tigers running round and round and then turning into butter was the most memorable part of the story. Really impressed me.

There was a chain of restaurants on the West Coast called Sambo's if I remember correctly. Anyone remember those? Maybe it wasn't just the W.C.

First time I've ever heard of Swanupping. Very interesting.
I love watching swans swim. They are beautiful. When I was little we lived by a river and there was a black swan with a red bill that came up to our pier with the ducks every day. We would make quacking sounds and they would all swim over for some stale bread or corn flakes.
We called the swam Nicodemus.

Nothing for me today -


Swan upping does involve turning them upside down I suppose, generally it is a way of checking the cygnet population and counting them - especially as you have to have the Queen's permission to eat one as traditionally they all belong to her.

Auk - definitely sounds like an onomatopaic word, wouldn't you say. I mean, that HAS to be the sound they make when you tread on them.

I like the description of a "drift of butterflies" - I have come across a murder of rooks before but a clew of worms is a new one to me.

Astonishingly, both dd and I took care of our DMV needs in about 15 min.! I don't know about the rest of the States (or world for that matter) but in Ca. they are notoriously slow and most folks dread having to go. I FINALLY got around to putting my little truck in our name after paying it off 3 YEARS AGO! Talk about procrastination. We did have a fun day together. :love:

16 now, 9 to go.

Am I the only one who pictures a lounge of lizards as a group of reptiles leaning against fireplaces wearing smoking jackets with cigarettes in holders a la Noel Coward? Over in the corner are the amphibians, as pissed as newts, while the crabs are huddled over the craps table, casting.

More coffee I think,:coffee:

I love your ideas a lot more than mine, Jan! :up:

What I think of is a cheap, sleazy nightclub in Vegas with hairy men in white suits, shirts unbuttoned down to their navels and lots of gold jewlery. :re:

I think the difference is that in the States a lounge is mainly thought of as a place to go have a drink. A "cocktail lounge" as it were. A club on the tacky side. Rather a dated expression though. We call your lounge a "living room" generally speaking.

Added 3 to 19!

I tended to picture the lizards in a typically St James Mens Club-dark flock wallpaper, leather armchairs in deep green or brown, turkish carpet and a quintessentially English Butler bringing cocktails.

The sleezy nightclub version is grim - I bet all thoe men are sweaty...

A rhumba of rattlesnakes.....should you therefore have a conga of constrictors? How do the rattlesnakes hold their moraccas - oh wait - that is what the rattles are for! Grat pictures these things conjour up.

An unkindness of ravens - that is because they are all hunched up like broken umbrellas pecking the eyes out of corpses on the gallows...

A herd of curlews is just silly - have you EVER tried to herd birds? It ain't happening.

Up to 17 - although I got three today - I'd thought Swans had already been drawn - glad it came out before the end - I'd hate to Bingo and be wrong.

The words for a Sunday. Hopefully getting some MUCH needed rain from the east of all places. Lyn's area (Phoenix) got quite a bit from what I hear. Strange place to get rain from but we'll take it from anywhere! What's your weather doing?

Barracudas - A battery of Barracudas. (Was it Heart that had that song?)
Cats (Kittens) - A kindle, litter, intrigue of Cats.
Quail - A bevy or covey of Quail.
Reindeer - A herd or Santa's helpers of Reindeer. (Just threw that in! :bg: )
Wrens - A herd of Wrens. (Another herd of birds. :whacky: )

now on 20 - only 5 to go!

Still raining here
http://abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/07/22/1985016.htm?section=justin

Not too bad in my part of the world but we have had a months rain in a day in some places. Some places have been flooded out twice now - M5 was at a standstill - people stuck for 19 hours - many roads and houses under water. We long for summer.

Worst floods for a generation, Lennie. 9 predicted severe flood warnings today. Yesterday estimated 500,000 people without drinking water for three days due to flooding of sewage works. Thames and Severn on alert today - and still the Govt build new houses on flood plains!

It can stop now, honest!

Government does that here too, Jan. It's called the ostrich syndrome. Did we get to ostrich yet? Was it even on the list? :nc: :bg:

Words for July the 23rd.

Cats (wild) - A destruction of Cats.
Hedgehogs - An array of Hedgehogs.
Hyenas - A cackle of Hyenas. :bg: :bg:
Leopard - A leap of Leopards. :bg:
Porpoises - A herd or pod of Porpoises.

Got some good ones today. The last few days haven't been too popular.

This again, was not a popular group of animals. :wink:

Jan, your beautiful country made the front page of San Diego's paper today. Tewkesbury Abbey absolutely surrounded by water. The headline: Heavy Rains Flood Britain. Ironically just above that, "As supplies dry up, pressure to solve water pinch builds.", a story about our state's crisis regarding the shortage of water...:bang:

Try to stay dry. Maybe we can google "how to build an ark" for Jan.

Irony - don't you just love it! Tony was baptising a couple of people last Sunday when one of the congregation turned up just in time - towing a HUGE formula one speedboat. (He runs the safety team for a local club). We have decided to call him Noah.

We are on a hill and so are fine - in fact today was sunny and warm - more rain due tomorrow.

It's absolutely time for me to post a "list so far". Some need to check it very, very carefully. No, there's no winner (unless I'm mistaken which is entirely possible) but some are oh, so close....:up:

I missed one so I'm up to 21.

Lot so rain on the east side of the valley the Saturday but about 1/2 inch at my daughter's last night-the baby loved the rain and storm-so glad cuz I do too! The poor dog though wouldn't move from my side all night as she is scared by the thunder. Some rain at my place -I'm about 5 miles south of my dd-but not sure how much-it was pretty much dried up by the time I got home last night.

Jan-looks from the news that you folks are swimming over there! Didn't know you all wanted beach front property!

In view of Pauline's question I was thinking I might post around 1:00 PST till we have a winner. Hope I'm correct in thinking that it's about 8:00 a.m. (the next day of course but that's irrevelant) for Pauline and also late night for Jan (too late?) and late afternoon for the midwest, south. central and east coast U.S./Canadian ladies.

Does that seem fair? Let me know if there's a better solution.

Hey Pauline,

I think it's a good idea to make it as fair as we can for everyone. Why not? It's not like you're asking poor little me to get up at 2:30 a.m. just to post the words for you. :wink:

I think the above is a good compromise.

The "P" stands for Pacific ~ Pacific Standard Time. The middle of the U.S. is two hours ahead of us and the East Coast is three hours ahead. There is no Southern time zone but I didn't want to leave them out. As far as I know Canada follows the same zones as us but I'm not sure.

See you tomorrow. Lennie

Post when you post Lennie, I'm on and off the computer all day , first thing in the morning, last at night - it is only a game.

One of the joys of living on an island, Lyn - we none of us are very far from the sea - and it is getting closer every year. Global warming - what a kicker.

:up: Sure, Jen. I'll pm my address so you can send lots of money!!!

Okay, in my overzealousness I made a boo-boo with the list. As noted above "cubs" was not a word that was drawn previously. I picked today's words yesterday (cause I'm soooo curious too) and inadvertantly crossed it off the master list. That's what happened there.

I'm posting just a wee bit early since I've got two girls coming over at 1:00 to be measured for their cheerleading uniforms.

So, here are the words for July 25th:

Bears (cubs) - A litter of Cubs.
Birds (ground) - A flock or dissimulation of Birds.
Flies - A business or swarm of Flies.
Trout - A hover of Trout.
Wasps - A nest or swarm of Wasps.

There it is! I'll post same time each day till we're done. This could be the last day, who knows? Well, I do but I'm not telling. At least not till I get Jen's money!!!! lol lol lol

OMG, What a dork I am!!!! Glad I checked. I sat down to post the words and dh drove up. I honestly thought I had posted them. So sorry, ladies! I know I typed the post. I remember typing them. How can you not remember typing Bobolink??

Now, tomorrow we're going to a wedding and will be leaving by 9 and won't be home (got a family get together tacked on afterwards - not related to the wedding) so won't be home till late. I'll have to post early.

The words for July 27th, 2007

Boblinks - A chain of Bobolinks.
Ferrets _ A business, cast, fesnying of Ferrets.
Larks - An exaltation or ascension of Larks.
Snakes - A den of Snakes.
Sparrows - A host of Sparrows.

Thanks, Kelly. I must have hit "preview post" and thought I was done. :whacky: :whacky: :whacky:

Lennie - I did see an earlier but different post with the same animals in it earlier. I'd say the original post disappeared into cyberspace somewhere. Whooooooo

I still need that elusive one word. Could it be that the last letter of the alphabet will be the last word called?

Guess that gives away the word I need, huh?

I wonder how many more of you are waiting for the same word......hhhhhmmmmmm.

Isn't this exciting??? I do believe that this is the longest the game's run since I've been playing.

Got home late and just now read new posts. Pauline, I know I wrote that post so I'm glad you at least think you saw it! :re: Guess we'll never know. :whacky:

Yesterday was a fun day. The wedding was incredible. It was at a place called "The La Jolla Bridge Club" http://www.lajollacovebridgeclub.com/. It's a small building on a bluff right over the ocean in a park. From the windows all you see is water. La Jolla is a very hoity toity beach area but of course the beach is free to anyone.

This club is still in use by the society ladies for their bridge games and looks like it's been there since the 1920's. The wedding was on the grass next to the building and then we all milled around while the pics were being taken. There were maybe 50 people there total. We then went inside for a gourmet meal, several very touching toasts and dancing. I seldom look forward to the usual wedding but this one really was special.

Even the get together with dh's family went well afterwards. Even the nasty sister was nice to me. Go figure......... So, a good day.

See you in about 3 hours and 15 min. Maybe today, maybe today. Gotta be soon!

Isn't that funny? Zebras were so popular. Between zebras and wombats everyone would have won tomorrow.

Yes, nanabear, you are a winner also.

There's still one more...... Where is she hiding???

Great game everyone!

Judy(mo) is doing the August words. We'll wait to hear from her. Words have to be in by Tues. at midnight.

Thanks everyone for playing. It was a lot of fun.

We had a family picnic yesterday with out of town relatives who are here for my son's wedding. I wasn't on the computer so I'm glad "zebra" wasn't called or I would have missed my very first bingo.

We have a busy month of August so I won't be playing that one. But I can't wait until September's game is ready to start....geez, I'm wishing away the rest of summer!

Good luck to all of you in August.
