There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

people were talking about that on the news this morning. It was the gas company that turned the heat off thus causing all the problems Bet they get hit with a big old law suit if they do not step up and take responsibility for it

Oh no not another storm when willl it ALL END ANYWAY!!!!I am really tired of this and we are in the deep freeze again this morning!!Why on earth do they turn the gas off how STUPID is that!!!! How can anyone get heat if they do that and why would they think it has to be done?Strange thinking and its always the guy with nothing that suffers!!!They should have to pay for any damage caused by turning that off!! emoticon

We maybe be getting more.There is another storm coming.There are still people here with no heat.AND so many people have broken pipes because the gas companies turned off the natural gas. I am telling you it is a mess.I really feel for these folks many of them are very poor. I have no idea how they can afford to have their pipes fixed. It is just wrong that a gas company does that..I lived in NJ where there are many bad storms and we NEVER lost the natural gas..EVER

Oh sorry to hear about the birch. They are beautiful trees. I always loved them when I lived back East.

Not much news here. Keep wishing it would cool down a bit and stay that way.

GINGER; I do not know yet exactly when I will be going out west, but it will be this month of May I think, hopefully it will work with all the other stuff.
Well I am gonna go.

WElllllllllllllll not sleeping good again; dang bellyaches keep waking me up. It is a reaction to the medications I have to take I think, altho doc says IBS. NO THANK YOU! LOL.

HOPEfully today will be a more "visibly" productive day; yesterday was very tiring and hurty....all day paperwork just about, and it looks worse when all is laid out in the process of trying to cull and organize and store it, huh? ugh.

We are to have storms, had rain all day yesterday, so HOPEfully I can get out and mow like crazy before the the rains start up again if it is dry enough. So enjoy your rain, Ginger! I know we needed it too, so I should not complain; just I got sidetracked with NON yard demands and non HOUSE demands and now I am hurdling along trying to catch up and get somewhere on those fronts.

What a great drive though gonna be fun road trips with girl friends are a blast .
We have been getting some nice rain here as well :):) :0 Happy Happy Joy Joy ..So good because we planted some seeds and dug up and transplanted some bamboo so the cooler damp weather is great to help the plants adjust.

welp up and not well rested, but done with meetings out of town for a while thank God; ARLENE; great page you sent me and timely too! My girlfriend whom I WAS going to go see in yet another town two hours from here, having flown in from California for a visit, found out while she was here or just before arriving, that she had been laid off. So she will be moving BACK yahoooooooooo! she is one of my very best friends that I have not seen much of over time. We were in Art school together.

SO, she stayed out in the western part of our state where her family farm is located and her younger bro lives, instead of traveling inward, to begin planning and preparing a move back. She asked me if I wanted to fly out and drive back with her! WHOA I have never been out west and she said we could stop at some interesting places but also, warned me of the long areas of desert! So I am like, whew; realized how scary trips alone on planes are for me bec of the hearing issue; I know SOME improvements in information access have occurred but not completely oriented to flying, you know, without someone saying "hello, we have to board now, they called our numbers"....lol. whew; this is the year of facing fears I guess.

AND hopefully I will get some great pictures and can do some landscape studies as well.

Nuff said! I see we got some new members.
have a super day; four days of storms and rain here they say, missed all the good weather going to meetings, and now, will have overgrown weeds to dig out and grass to mow and weedeat should it dry up anytime soon.

About the height of a good size crow but not so heavy. Growing up in NJ I had never seen one either they are very silly. They stop and raise and lower their crest and tail, sort of the way a mocking bird stops and does that wing thing every so many steps.
Here is a link with some info :)

GRRRRRRRR my dutch iris which came up ONCE last year then decided to try to bloom again in the warm overly long fall, have brown tops and green bottoms and NO buds and I don't think I am gonna see any blooms this year I am irritated. I don't know if they are no good at ALL or if I just have to wait another season to see if they "make it".
My coral bark maple is purty tho!
ONLY two of the three magic carpet spirea are leafing, tho, so I need to call the garden center and find out if I can get another one to replace it.
No goldfinches yet but we do get them; so pretty.

Happy Weekend, all,

I saw a tiny white wild violet yesterday in the woods behind my house while servicing my feeders.

BTW, yesterday I had 2 gorgeous goldfinches at my feeder, and posted a new topic here on this yesterday. Sorry I didn't have the camera handy.

There were signs of bear, and my neighbors are nagging me to take the feeders down. I really hate to do it.

Speaking of turkeys, we have wild ones around our way, and the other evening about 6pm we saw some hens stop traffic as they ambled across the busy 2-lane road near our house. We looked left and saw a tom with his full regalia spread for the ladies to admire. How beautiful they are! I no longer eat them.

I would love to have Chickens, but our dogs would view them as a treat. Our next door neighbors have Chickens. Twice, one flew into our yard, and Sarge grabbed it. I felt terrible!

As a new member of this Team, I thought I'd just summarize who I've seen so far here (north eastern PA):
Crows (walking like men with hands behind their backs towards the dining room window and getting the kitty all energized)
Purple Finch
Downy Woodpecker
Titmouse
White-breasted Nuthatch
Chipping Sparrows
Robins (lots!)
Last week a huge dark-colored bird with pointed beak and white head with black eyeline. It looked a lot like a bald eagle without the curved bill. Process of elimination says it was probably a blue heron. Hope I see it again!

I'm so glad I found this team! I love to watch for flowers and dragonflies, too.
