Hello lala, I agree, hours and hours between posts just don't seem right. Of course we have ALOT of missing posters. Wonder how many he actually had on here since April. Oh well. I got caught up in cleaning and cooking dinner/supper, dishes, ran to pick my niece up at work and thought I would relax and do nothing now but wait for my favorite show BlueBloods to come on, surf the net for news, topix update, email, facebook etc.
I was checking out the storm cam myself and the storm of '78.
Snow dump in East will have hard time matching the big daddy of '78
The blizzard known as "Nemo" is beginning to bury the Northeast, so you know what that means: It's time for old-timers to reminisce about the worst storms they've been through. Comparisons are already being made to the massive snow that hit New England 35 years ago (almost to the day) and left major cities in the region under more than 2 feet of white (see the gallery above for stunning pics). Coupled with 70 mph wind gusts, the 1978 blizzard was a deadly force, with 99 storm-related deaths reported. At least one forecaster doesn't expect this year's storm to be as damaging, if only because an unbelieving public back then failed to heed warnings, leading to more being stranded on highways and in inaccessible areas.[Source]

For all the Kentucky fishermen/women:
Trout being added to many Kentucky lakes
Published: February 8, 2013
FRANKFORT, Ky. Kentucky fish and wildlife officials are adding to the trout population of lakes around the state.
The plan is to stock more than 31,000 rainbow trout measuring at least 9 inches long in 26 lakes this week.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said the largest stocking will be at Cedar Creek Lake in Lincoln County. Workers will divide 9,000 trout among locations at each of the lake's three ramps.
Jacobson Park Lake in Fayette County is receiving 4,000 trout. That lake recently joined Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's Fishing in Neighborhoods program aimed at providing better fishing opportunities in population centers in the state.
Other areas receiving trout include lakes in Jefferson, Boyle, Franklin, Henderson, Hopkins, Jessamine, Knox, Marion, Meade, Madison, Montgomery, Nelson, Scott and Union counties.

BIRD story. Sad one but amazing how he saved the kid.
Parrot bravely saves owner from raging house fire, dies a hero
A pet parrot named Cookie saved his owner from a deadly fire, but alas, the bird himself did not survive. Now he's being remembered as a hero. Home alone, 17-year-old Ben Rees lit an incense stick and took a shower. The stick threw a spark, and flames engulfed Rees' bedroom, rousting Cookie from his perch. The quick-thinking cockatiel dashed into the bathroom, squawking and flapping, and dive-bombed Rees until he got the message and got out of there. Rees credits Cookie with his survival, but he was unable to save his feathered friend. "It is so sad that he didn't make it out alive," Rees' mother said. "We will never forget what he did." [Source]

Funny story for dog lovers:
Persistent dog works hard to bury bone in kitchen floor
This goofy dog is proof that old habits die hard. Watch Canaan hard at work burying his bone in the kitchen floor and try not to laugh. That's right, Canaan: Dig that hole, drop in the bone and cover it up with dirt. Never mind that you're scratching up slippery, hard linoleum, not soft, brown earth. We were going to redecorate anyway. Good boy! You got the job done! Yeah, we're pretty sure that no one will find it.

haha, you sound like me. I will get some of it done now, drawers, cabinets, and closets scaled down and organized and get to the scrubbing next month or April. I am with you, the idea and tease of Spring has rejuvenated me too. I just thought I would relax today. Ancient Wolf is a rare breed. World could use so many more like him. He has been an inspiration to us all for over two years.

New proof that asteroid impact dealt the dinosaurs a quick death blow
Dinosaurs doom came quicker after asteroid than previously thought
Reuters | 08 February, 2013 09:55
The eyes of a Tyrannosaurus Rex replica. File picture.
Dinosaurs died off about 33 000 years after an asteroid hit the Earth, much sooner than scientists had believed, and the asteroid may not have been the sole cause of extinction, according to a study.
Where's Belie/Sybil too? Where did everyone go?

A happy dog story:
Move over, Lassie: Real-life dog to the rescue for homeless man
A homeless man outside Olympia, Wash., is thanking his dog, Buddy, for heroics that may well have saved his life.
On Wednesday afternoon, the man whose identity is not being released by police tucked a note into his dogs harness with a hastily written plea for help. Since early that morning he had been unable to move, lying on the floor of the makeshift home he had constructed in the woods near Tumwater.
This was his last-ditch effort. He thought he was going to die, said Detective Jen Kolb of the Tumwater Police Department.
Luckily, a woman who frequently walked her dog through the woods recognized Buddy and noticed the note. The word HELP was scribbled in large font, with the plea:Send help. No joke. Cannot walk.
The woman quickly dialed 911, but what was missing from the SOS was the mans name or any indication of where he was. But on the other side of the scrap paper were directions to the Washington state Department of Social and Health Services, which frequently works with the areas homeless.
Police scoured the woods, known to have a large homeless population, looking for make-shift shelters where the injured man may have been. After a short search, the man was found and transported to a hospital in Olympia where he was treated and released.
This was his best friend, and the one he relied on when he needed someone the most, said Kolb.Its one of those heartwarming stories that kind of remind you of Lassie."
The man is recovering with friends, while Buddy has been taken in by animal services.

Nite all fine folks.... Here's to my topix family..
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

Ah, coffee and memories of a childhood Grade School poem nudged on by your query....(Incidentally, it was a faded shade of green)
I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.(first penned in 1895).
So can anyone else remember the Grade School tabloid known as "The Weekly Reader"? I can't remember anything we read other than the back bage always had a cartoon about an elephant and a monkey. I believe it was "Dumbo and Peanuts".
And we trudged through the snow about 3/4 mile from here at the Homestead to the end of the road (up hill both ways, of course LOL) and stood out in the cold waiting on the school bus for that vast wealth of knowledge?
#85597 Feb 9, 2013
Oh, the exciting day when the engine fell out of that old jalopy they called a "school bus" and plowed into the ground and lifted the front of the bus off the ground, and we were all tardy.
Or the day we all learned about the Miracle of Life when we went down to the school's 6-hole outhouse and looked over the fence at Homer's old sow and watched it give birth to a litter of piglets.

Good morn , AW and all... So many fond memories keep me going daily. Some I guess I should forget, but some will always warm my heart, even those that broke it , I guess. Hope we can all save at least one..
An old man was walking along the beach, when he came upon a part of the sand where thousands of starfish had washed ashore. A little further down the beach he saw a young woman, who was picking up the starfish one at a time and tossing them back into the ocean. "Oh you silly girl," he exclaimed. "You can't possibly save all of these starfish. There's too many." The woman smiled and said, "I know. But I can save this one, " and she tossed another into the ocean, "and this one", toss, "and this one..."

Good mornin Friends. I read the posts from People wishing me well in some of the situations I am currently in.. I would like to say Thank You.
I have freed myself of one of them. Another seems intent on keeping me tore up for a while.
"She" has been quite a mess in my life. It was my bad decision to get involved. I came to my senses a few monthes ago and tried to end the situation. It's a difficult thing to do. I still have my weaknesses. She knows how to play on them. A lonesome 51 y/o man whose mind and body still work like they did when he was in his 20's can become quite painfully entangled with a 30 y/o woman.
My intent has always been to help her out of the totally messed up life she leads. I was convinced that's what she wanted.. Now it's clear she intends to continue down the same old path. While I am going the opposite direction, she takes a little piece of my heart with her.

I really like your post.

Good morning bird threaders, I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Glad we are not getting up to snow. Brrrrrr
Enjoy your day!

Good Morning Blueminer, and all. I have found that for me personally that the best way to maintain Peace on my Life's trail, is to focus on the Blessings I have had in the past and the one's I have today and the hopes for future new ones and not so much on the bad or what is missing even though it is a piece of my heart.
Let the bad times stay in the shadows until they eventually fade away. That may or may not work for everyone, but it has been my source of comfort. Have a Good Day everyone. I think if I dress warmly, I should be able to get outside to enjoy today's blessings. I don't do so well indoors as outdoors.
