: : : I don't find "hotter than the hubs of Hades" in Phrase Finder. There's some speculation on other sites, but this is the one I trust. Does anyone have a definitive answer? It seems to be fairly common in the U.S (I first heard it over 50 years ago).

: : The word "hub" in this expression is a variant of hob, which means principally, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, "In a fire-place, the part of the casing having a surface level with the top of the grate." It is where you put things to keep them warm without burning up. I think, however, that being put on the hobs of Hades does put you in danger of burning up or at least of getting much too hot.

: : I don't think the expression is heard much in the U.S. nowadays. You'll more often hear, "hotter than the hinges of Hades."
: : SS

: This is a euphemism for "hotter than the hobs of Hell" which is certainly the earlier version. I've also come across "black as the hobs of Hell" in 19th-century literature. The hob of a fireplace is proverbially a black hot place, as is Hell; logically the hottest and blackest part of Hell should be its hobs. (VSD)

In the southwestern US here, I hear "hubs of hell" a lot and never hinges nor any variation with Hades. There must be regional differences."



And this:

: : I have heard s saying oft quoted in my family (which is based in Ireland):

: : 'As hard as the hobs of hell'

: : Of course it could be likely that this is a perversion of another saying.

: By another saying, are you thinking of "hot as the hinges of Hades"? It would make a little more sense to me if the saying quoted in your family were, "Hot as the hobs of hell." Hobs (or hubs) were surfaces in a fireplace or on a stove where things could be set in order to get warm or stay warm. They were hard, of course, since they were used as supports. But how hard does hard have to be for this purpose?
: SS

I heard "the knobs of hell", not hobs; and what were those knobs --- budding horns, perhaps?

I don't know if they were Irish at the root (not the horns, but the folks who said "knobs of hell"): possibly Scotch-Irish, by way of Appalachian.



And then there's this:

"My mother-in-law used to always use the phrase, “hotter than the Hubs of Hades”. Now, due to vocal exasperation from her daughter and my constant query, “exactly how hot are the Hubs of Hades?” she has quit using it. I really don’t think I will be getting an answer from her, so I turn to you, Jellies. How hot are they?"

"They’re actually kept cooler than the ambient temperature of 666. It might be an engineering snafu, but the hot tubs melt around 583 degrees, well before 666, leaving a hot puddle. Nobody likes a hot puddle. So, to contain the water, they actually cool it to a brisk 550 degrees. People go hot-tubbing to cool down.

It’s a bit of a misnomer really."
Holy cow Mel,

I got it from my sainted grandmother who was not a swearer under normal circumstances. Of French decent (La Brie was her maiden name and she and her mother discussed things they didn't want my mother and her sister and brother to understand in French, So my very French great grandmother who died before I was old enough to remember her, if she swore I guess it would have been in French--my grandmothers' strongest cuss word was that 'hell'.

And she only used it when referring to the extreme South Dakota summer temperatures.

Interesting the various permutations. Since Hades and hell were interchangable I expect that Hades was the polite version and hell was what the guys said around other guys. But it's the only version I'd ever heard in the midwest. I'll buy that hubs was an alternative version and probably regional of hobs.

Goodness...

LOL! Hey TN--I 've done the old boil (actually I simmer it) the chicken before it goes on the BBQ so I don't end up with raw inside and black outside chicken. Actually I don't BBQ at all but my SO many years ago and his cuz were party animals who liked to have these big BBQ's and they'd be late getting started and everyone would be clamoring for food so after several such "parties" I started preprepping both the chicken and ribs--I'd pre simmer both of them and the guys did fine with burgers and sausages so they were on their own for those but I particularly hate raw on the inside burned on the outside chicken and the cuz caught on very quickly and he'd grab the pans of chicken and ribs from me and mop them with his BBQ sauce and give the burgers and sausages to my SO. Worked perfectly--meant I never did really learn how to properly BBQ anything.

Hmmmm--I finally made the slightly modified stroganoff--tastes pretty good but the purists would never go for it and beside not cutting the meat into pencil thin 2 inch long strips I also cheat and serve it on rice--which I prefer to noodles.

I thought accidental double post got an escape freebee (I'll just borrow some of Kenny's GOOTWS free tickets.)

But since then, the cases in TN have been going up and have been going through the roof the last week, so for now, our office is at around 50% and my boss has to schedule people to work/telework to allow plenty of spacing between the people that are at work.

As I said before, I was born for this. I have no real need or desire to socialize, or listen to grown men try to outdo each other with their BS stories day after day or listen to them talk about World of Warcraft LOL. Here at home I have my wife and Mocha, which is pretty much all this boy needs
I can't like you or your boss right now.

At least you have a boss.

I've always wanted to work from home. After I got laid off from Sprint, while I was living in my Kansas farmhouse, I went to school for transcribing. That didn't pan out. Found out my then boyfriend was cheating on me with a stripper that looked like she had downs syndrome. And here I am in Oklahoma.

$2000 dollars down the drain.

TN, I need to order multiple game cameras for my court case. Can you assist?

MeadowCat Well, I'm going to be working fewer hours for a few weeks (at least). My job has changed so tremendously that I simply don't have enough work to fill up my time right now. I let my boss know that I'm going to take some unpaid time off each week right now for a while until we see how things are going in a couple of weeks. The church is still not open - we're doing virtual services - and I don't know when we will be. We're looking ahead to fall and I think it's going to be different. Even if we open, I think things will have changed. So...who knows.

I do that too--except for the VW's I owned in SoCal--stealing VW's was a big business--they sold for more than either of them cost me new in Baja as Baja buggys.

My first Toyota Tacoma (1983 short bed, two wheel drive) with a $400 canopy ran until it blew an oil pump on a max traffic time on a freeway--could not get over--trashed the engine. But it had over 300,000 miles with only routine service. My second one is what I'm driving now--it's a 1999 also short bed and retired from delivery truck for an Arizona furniture and appliance store (i know that because you can read the faint shadow on the side of the front where the Arizona sun altered the paint color (white). It had about 190,000 miles on it then and I've added not very many more in the 10+ years I've had it--maybe 3 or 4K not showing many dogs in anything more than a few agility trials and being sort of retired.

Given my tendency to keep stuff until it falls apart--if it hadn't been stolen I'd probably still be driving that first (1963) VW--it was 38hp--which meant it could hardly get up the hill going north from Portland to Seattle right after the bridge. And you had to be doing 70mph at the start to hope to be doing 35mph at the top (and that was when that section of I-5 didn't exist--it was Hwy 99 E.)

Gotta' go murder some maples.

dobebug Here's the PNW via Portland (the left side one) weather report--since it's all hotter than the hubs of hell (I always wonder just how hot and where exactly are the hubs of hell) through the midwest and drowning from systems moving from the south on the east coast--I'm sure you'll all enjoy hearing about our partly cloudy dry days (the next three at least) the high today should only be 80 and even I can survive that.

Like Ken and his dog yard, I did get the back yard both mowed and weed whacked the entire perimeter. With Joey the loaners help--that dog be crazy--perfect for those of us are not quite right. And I've come to believe he's part cat hence at least part alien.

In you drag something across the floor he foot slaps it to stop it like kitties do. So his "help" consisted of jumping or slapping the electrical cord attached to the new over powered weed whacker.

His breeder who took him for a walk earlier said they did three miles (or at least she did--he probably did much more--and she found an all up and down trail to walk him on.

He probably put in another 2 or 3 miles running laps in the back yard and figure 8's while I was weed whacking. That did ultimately wear him out.

And when I was mowing the back I realized the big very old cherry was dropping thousands of withered dried out cherries. The little Riobi plowed through all the grass, tough weeds, cherry pits and maple seeds (in abundance this time of year. It chopped the cherries and maple seeds--sounded like popcorn. Since I taught Joey that squirrels were bad things I don't have nearly as many in the yard trying to pick up the cherries.

Good! maybe he'll also keep them from stealing tomatoes eventually.

And I guess it's time to go out and dismantle pieces of the fence to remove the young maples who are trying to grow there.

Later all--Denny, I hope you've mastered the bobbin winding by now--be sure to take pictures of the finished product.
