  1. Ah, band camp. Enjoyed my time in marching band in HS & uni, but I'm old now & no way in hell doing that anymore. (Though if I go back to school again, I will probably do concert band & pep bands. It's that fun.) Now I get to do alumni band & threaten to not give money to the department every two years when they make us remember all the marching & chart reading & doing it again ... & again & again & again. ;)

    Technically I can play the piano but haven't in a looong time. Play flute & piccolo, with a few other odd-duck instruments during my time (pit percussion marimba/xylophone, cymbals, brake drum was interesting ... & loud :D , a *little* alto flute, & the odd bit of recorder, clarinet, & water goblets).

  2. Nice to see you again T_L

    How about 'syrup'

    There is a little purposeful double possibility, which is why HS's fits almost perfectly ... but keep trying fabby!

    (& it's good to be back :) )


    Fermentation? Or that one place where you keep wines until they're perfectly aged or something...

    Both good answers, & in keeping with the theme, but still not quite it.

  3. not sure if this fits everything either but it's worth a shoot


    I think it fits a little better than your 1st, but still not quite.

    ah, I like HeadShot's answer.

    mason jar

    but that could just be the bottom desk drawer sneaking into my head at 4:30 pm Friday.

    Sorry PG, try again after happy hour. ;)

  4. I add depth to fine beverages

    Many foods I help to keep

    Tradition, having plenty

    Delicious bounty do you reap

    From fruit & forest do I come

    Cold & hot to do the job

    Lock where I live & work

    Or be sad when you are robbed

  5. :offtopic: (From WAY down the pages, sorry to disappear everyone - life happened for a while.)

    1. My one & only. (Yet you step on me)

    2. Fail to muddle through. (Turnover)

    3. Pay your way. (Or stick it)

    4. Don't play that hot-shot. (Practices at the bar)

    5. Doesn't happen often. (Pitch it way down)

    6. Executive vs party. (Bangin)

    7. Got a whiff of that! (Remove impurities)

    8. Sit on the edge. (Mom rules it.)

    9. Dangerous when preceded by letters. (Sci-Fi weapon)

    10.Quit your bellyaching! (Old horse)

    11.Spice up my ... neck?

    12.Turn keys to shear off

    1. Sole - single; sole of the foot/shoe fabpig

    2. Flounder - struggle; fumble Dej Mar

    3. Pike - turnpike/expressway; sharp weapon plainglazed

    4. Shark - expert; lawyer plainglazed

    5. Bass - low frequency; lower pitch than alto/treble fabpig

  6. Love is its own kind of drug - mainly endorphins. So you can literally go through physical & emotional withdrawal. Finding other (legal, safe) ways to boost your endorphin levels can help a lot.

    (What do YOU like to do, that doesn't involve being with him? Meditate, read, sports, window shopping, music, write, movies, clubs, etc.)

    Positive reinforcement helps emotionally & mentally.

    I know I didn't want to hear this as a teenager, but - talk to your mom/female adult parental-type figure. They need to know you hurt so they can help support you.

    And give it time.

  7. There are several types of clams ending in 'neck' (littleneck, longneck, shortneck, topneck, pinkneck), there are also a few razors. Due to the list of '*necks' the clam may belong to clue 11, yet due to the 'razors', the clam may belong to clue 12 ("...to shear off"). As to the oyster, the only common names I found that do not include the word 'oyster' are bluepoint and tio, or of the oyster-related 'scallop', pure and tipa. And I found nothing in the short list, with or without 'oyster'/'scallop' that strikes me as fitting either clue.

    11. What might be considered 'spice'? What common object(s) might have a neck? Find the right words/sounds, string them together to get the answer.

    12. Two parts, the same word, which sounds like the answer.

    Still looking for fish.

  8. Do you know what they call the person that graduated last in their medical school class?


    I don't know much about DMSO, but to my understanding it's harmless in low quantities. (and is found in low amounts in a great number of things)

    But because it can dissolve so many chemical compounds, it can be dangerous by getting contaminated with almost anything - ie, you could easily use it to poison someone.

    I don't care enough to look up the FDA trials, but I would guess that would be a reason to proceed with caution.
