I plant enough sweet corn for me, deer, raccoons, and other wild critters. Then any that gets messed over by the critters, gets shaved off and fed to the chickens. They like the tender bits too including the silks. The deer keep coming down to my old corn patch. I suppose they are wondering when the old man is going to plant some more ?. Soon, my friends.. soon. The chickens like fresh green tomatoes too, so I set out enough of those for all of us. They get the ones lowest on the vines, and I get the ones higher up.<quoted text>
OH, I love fresh basil!! I like to make my own pesto sauce. I always end up with more than I can possibly use, but it still smells so heavenly! I put my basil in a planter on the porch. Same with rosemary, parsley and green onions. With the green onions, it's easy to reseed at intervals that way too so you have a small yet continual yield..
Like you, I don't usually like to put things out in the ground until at least the first week of May, last week of April at the earliest. I'll do good enough just to keep the deer and rabbits out of everything again, hehe. The wild critters steal everything they can get to, LOL!
MURRAY, Ky. - State wildlife officials say "several hundred" dead birds were found near the Murray State University campus last week.

One final post before I go out to greet the CREATOR's new day. About my dog, When he sees me getting ready to go out, he runs and lays on my shoes so that I won't forget him... LIke I have ever forgotten him in the last several years. LOL He has abandonment issues and goes where I go.
Even when I still worked, I took him every day to a dog sitter... a little old lady that had 2 of her own for him to play with. He knew exactly where we were going and would get excited about a 1/2 mile before we got to the sitter. Good Day.

He is a rescue pup, they said he was half chihuahau and half russel,,but he looks 80\20 mexican side. His other two siblings were solid black and the same size so who knows what the little toe licker really is. He is 13" top of back at 3 months so I don't think he'll get much larger.

Good morning Ancient Wolf, Hempburn and fellow bird threaders. I hope everyone slept well. I did. The cold coming through the crack in my window woke me up. I couldn't go back to sleep so coffee is on at 8 on a Saturday morning. No sleeping in. Once I am awake I am awake. It is a big 19 degrees and frosty.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

Hi lala, getting ready for the UK game coming up at 1:00 and my son and girlfriend should be here shortly. I wonder who was posting form London called the Imposter last night? That was weird. I didn't think they were the same. Maybe they were.
I did some research on the sinkhole in Louisiana and there isn't much on it since I posted the 13 Feb update. This first link has a lot videos, flyover pics, maps etc...pretty scary. There is a web for updates listed too.
I hope you are having a great day, still pretty cold out there. Birds are loving the bread/biscuit/muffin scrapes and fresh bird seed. Lots of robins out and about...SPRING, I know you are teasing us but will be here shortly. Can't wait.
New bubbles and ground cracks appeared near Louisiana sinkhole
This is crazy if it is true. They HAD to vacate.
Some developments have been surprising. Others are just sadly f'ing predictable, like evacuated residents being told their insurance was being cancelled because their homes had been vacant for more than 30 days. As ordered.
"Nope" check out that creepy real eye on that page. haha

42. When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you 'squeeze' for freshness or softness? Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color twist tie.
Monday = Blue,
Tuesday = Green,
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow.
So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday.
Don't forget Gatorade for Migraine Headaches. PowerAde won't work. Pass this information on.

Daughter was sitting on my foot last night when suddenly I heard toot. I asked, What did you do? She looked me dead in the eye, That was my belly. Just as serious as could be, little stinker. Children so do make the world a brighter place. You Folks have a nice day. I have laundry to do. Might check up later :)

That is bad news my dear, I thought a lot of Una, he was a very intelligent man. I believe he was right with the man upstairs so I find some comfort in that. Still, I am shocked and saddened. The man could sure scrap when he had a mind too. He will be remembered...and missed.
No sweety, although I was a proud member of the Una troll crew for some time, I am nowhere near his level.
The little fellow is doing fine, he's with his mother and father, they got back together last week.
May my friend rest in peace.

I am still getting use to it. I click on the thread and expect to see his avatar here. He is missed.
#86058 Feb 16, 2013
Been installing a bigger and better wood burning stove which requires some chimney changes. Mortared in today, to set up over night and tomorrow. Install most likely Monday. Hope the electric heat don't go out in the meantime. LOL
Nascar new season underway tonight from Daytona with "Sprint Unlimited", formerly the "Budweiser shootout". New style cars with more manufacturer identity instead of them all looking the same. Fox channel.

Good evening Imposter, it is you. I am so happy. You are right about Una. He was intelligent, a deacon,Sunday School teacher and church treasurer at his Church. When I looked him up on the funeral obit page there was a picture of him that was just as I imagined him to look like. It has been different without him. He and I were having some fun posting the night before he passed. I miss that ole fart. We were talking about you shortly before he left because they kept deleting everything you said and we wondered it they had banned you. He really grew on most of us after all that fussing. I didn't really think you were one of his socks, but reading his hometown forum apparently he took a few posters with him. lol
I know you must miss that little tike, he had tugged at your heart strings good. I hope you get to see him often.
Have a good evening and don't forget to stop in again and keep us posted. Glad to see you here again, my friend.

I am glad to find out that you are not one of Una's sock. I do miss Una. I always thought that he was very intelligent, It wasn't the content of what he wrote, but his writing style and use of sarcasm and wit that convinced me of his intellect. The last month or so that he posted on the bird thread was actually enjoyable to read. I do hope that you continue to check in here. A little bit of controversy sparks more interest in posting.
