177 underground nuclear tanks in Wa??? If they leak that does mean water will be affected by the seepage unless it's contained. It is so easy for man to destroy life on earth.

Hi AB, can't sleep here. Partner got outta Dodge City now on the way to Pa. Not too cold here tonight. It's really nice to hear about the eagle's eggs. Partner said birds were in big flocks today in Kansas. Unfortunately, big trucks and small creatures don't get along:( I'm having a cup of joe. Caffeine sometimes does the opposite of making me jittery. Will see LOL
Hi Misty eyed, got home late tonight again, took a shower and am wide awake. I thought I would check if AW was up for tree time. I have thought of all my topix friends today who have OTR drivers when I look at the mess dumped out in Kansas, Colorado etc..glad it hit the Ohio River and spared Kentucky. lol

I love to watch those Eagles nest and raise their young. It is always nice to watch the live feed when I want to see nature not witness with your own eye. I love that project. They do Owls and other birds too. I like to watch the Eagles. They are my favorite.

I can drink coffe anytime, including shortly before I go to bed. It never bothers me.

I thought I would leave some decent reading for the early risers. lol I don't appreciate the Una imposter. Not funny. He outed her good. He may have been wrong about Nope, but not that one.

I am so happy we have a Spring like weekend forecast. High 50's, I will take it. lol Plan on getting out in the yard and picking up what the cold wind blew in, get some things done at the house, prepare snacks for the UK get together with family and friends all dressed in their UK Blue and have a great weekend.

I hope you enjoy yours.:)

For lala,

Another sad story with a happy ending. Wonder why people have to be so cruel. Even if they thought it was dead from parvo, why didn't they make sure and if so bury it in the back yard or somewhere like pet owners do. God's Creatures are not trash.

A newborn puppy thrown away in the garbage gets rescued by his very own guardian angel!

Newborn Puppy Thrown in the Trash Gets Rescued
Trash collector Michael Upchurch was making his normal rounds when he happened upon a trash container that was whimpering! Inside, he found a small puppy, hungry and covered in garbage. It was a miracle Michael was able to save it in time!

Oh, I'll try. I agree with you about the Una issue. He was pretty frank and at times thoughtful. His comedy and remarks sure are missed. Wish Nope. Lala, AW, Blue well. Apparently, AW has been preparing some meals and Dog's been getting treats as well. It's nice to hear that all seems to be well with the other posters. Life can be fine;) Or at least if we make it so...

You too Misty eyed. I will pray for your partner's safe return. I love those rescue videos. I am on my way to my pillow too. Topix checked, email checked, and facebook checked. Off to dreamland. Enjoy the beautiful day. God Bless

Hey bird peeps. Just doing a quick fly by to let you all know that I'm still among the living. I've had a couple of blah days.. Like was said previously, I worry too when someone doesn't post for a while.

On another note, I don't know what someone is getting out of posting under Mr Farters moniker, but I contacted Topix about it and they are going to look into the matter... This is an abomination and it needs to stop. I've been keeping a file of every thing I've found since he passed, including the links, and sent the Mods every bit of info they need to get to the bottom of it. So just be patient, they're looking into it. Whoever is doing this needs to realize that the engineers employed by Topix have their little ways, i.e., comparing IP's, etc. This scam probably won't go on for much longer.

Hey "Nope". I was wondering about you. I am still up. Know if I can do anything but stare out the window or the ceiling fan I might as well do something to make me sleep. Staring at at a PC.

Thanks for doing that. I think that is just down right cold to try to taunt people using his name like that. It is pretty low.

Cheer up, we have a Springlike weekend. Enjoy it on your land with your animals you love, crank up that Harley and take a ride. That always helped me clear my head. I only ride on the back of them. lol I haven't in a while. Miss it.

Have a peace night and pleasant dreams.:)

I just made another cup of coffee. I'm like you, I can drink it 24/7 and not have any trouble sleeping when my body tells me it's time to lay down.

I'll let you all know what I find out about this Una fake if I'm able to and if Topix lets me in on it. I suspect that it will just be dealt with quietly and we'll never know the outcome, other than the fact that these false posts will cease once and for all.

It's just not right. Even though I regret that there was no love lost between Mr Farter and myself, I don't like what's going on. It's a mockery of his memory.. And oddly enough, the 'socks' he used are still MIA. Too many clues lead to the fact that whoever is doing this, surely isn't very savvy as far as being slick... They haven't hit many of the other threads his frequented and they don't have the sense to carry this on for much longer. The clock is ticking....

I had a good evening with my friend and went on to bed long before you late night bird threaders, and now up for dog/tree and the day with my own coffee.

Places to go and people to see this morning. Chickens are wantng me to sell enough of their handiwork to buy them some more groceries and give the excess to the old folks at the Senior Citizen's Center. They said if I would do that, they would contribute another 7 or 8 dozen to distribute next week.

I have one poor hen that does not know if it is a goose or a robin. One day the egg was the largest I have ever seen and the next day it was the smallest. Neither would fit well in the carton lol

It is happening everywhere and just ask anyone about the vibe they get from this whole situation. People are very instinctive when it comes to your planet and body.

"It's like if you're trying to determine if climate change is happening, only looking at the data for today," he said. "Perhaps human error, the protocol did not call for it. But that's not the most important thing at the moment. The important thing now is to find and address the leakers."
There are legal, moral and ethical considerations to cleaning up the Hanford site at the national level, Inslee said, adding that he will continue to insist that the Energy Department completely clean up the site.
He also stressed the state would impose a "zero-tolerance" policy on radioactive waste leaking into the soil.
Cleanup is expected to last decades and cost billions of dollars.
The federal government already spends $2 billion each year on Hanford cleanup one-third of its entire budget for nuclear cleanup nationally. The Energy Department has said it expects funding levels to remain the same for the foreseeable future, but a new Energy Department report released this week includes annual budgets of as much as $3.5 billion during some years of the cleanup effort.
Much of that money goes toward construction of a plant to convert the underground waste into glasslike logs for safe, secure storage. The plant, last estimated at more than $12.3 billion, is billions of dollars over budget and behind schedule. It isn't expected to being operating until at least 2019.
Given those delays, the federal government will have to show that there is adequate storage for the waste in the meantime, Inslee said.
"We are not convinced of this," he said. "There will be a robust exchange of information in the coming weeks to get to the bottom of this."
Inslee and Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber have championed building additional tanks to ensure safe storage of the waste until the plant is completed. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said earlier this week that he shares their concerns about the integrity of the tanks but he wants more scientific information to determine it's the correct way to spend scarce money.
Tom Carpenter of Hanford Challenge, a Hanford watchdog group, said Friday it's disappointing that the Energy Department is not further along on the waste treatment plant and that there aren't new tanks to transfer waste into.
"None of these tanks would be acceptable for use today. They are all beyond their design life. None of them should be in service," he said. "And yet, they're holding two-thirds of the nation's high-level nuclear waste."
Wyden noted the nation's most contaminated nuclear site and the challenges associated with ridding it of its toxic legacy will be a subject of upcoming hearings and a higher priority in Washington, D.C.

Great research, Abeliever. And at one time, I considered moving to the Yakima Valley area in Washington state. LOL. Instead, I just moved to Lebanon, Ky., the marijuana capitol of the country. Great picks for poor old Lala. LOL

Good morning, everyone. Beautiful day, today, but I'm in a world of misery. Took another nasty fall during my nightly sleepwalking episodes. Wiped out my head, neck, and of all things, my big thumb. It may be a good thing after all that I'm so hard-headed. Enjoy the day today, folks, it will gradually warm up until we are plunged back into winter. Last few years, though, we went straight from winter to summer heat, as I recall.

Thanks, she will be back in a couple hours to bring DOG a treat and enjoy my cooking of lemon-pepper tilapia, macaroni and cheese, steamed broccoli, 3 cheese texas garlic toast and iced tea. Afterwards, Dog will share his recliner (that I cleaned and sprayed with Fabreze) so we can watch what should be a heart-warming horse movie from 1979 that shows it as having 3 1/2 stars on Dish HDNMV channel. It is about a 1940s boy that is shipwrecked on a desert island with a wild Arabian horse and bonds with the horse. Much better than aliens, zombies, and such LOL
Sounds like the nice lady has some designs on you and Dog. If so, that is a wonderful thing. I know what you have said previously about how much you loved your wife, and likely still do. But no one is meant to be alone, and I'll bet your wife, if she could get in touch with you now, would say, "Don't let this one get away." I think that you actually would honor your wife's memory by being able to open up to the possibility of a new relationship.

I once had a friend who was much older than I was. I was only 24 years old at the time, and she was close to my age now, about 60. Well, her husband of 40 years, passed away and she was insistent about never getting involved with anyone. She eventually met a gentleman who lost his wife. They became friends, then intimate, inseparable companions. I laughed when she tried to hide her budding romance, because I lived on a hill, next door,and could see when her 'boyfriend' came and went. I wasn't being nosey, but I had a young baby at the time,and I was up at all hours tending to her. I never mentioned anything to my friend, until she asked me if I thought she was 'terrible' by being interested in anyone after her soul mate passed away. I could barely keep from chuckling. I told her that I was very much aware of her new love, and he shouldn't be scrambling to leave in the wee hours of the morning to escape detection.

Finally,the two lovebirds brought their relationship out in the open, and for many years thereafter, they enjoyed each other's companionship. They both have passed on now, and I often think of them both. I don't think that anything happens by coincidence, and that Our Creator brings people into our lives for a reason. How wonderful it was to have these two people share their lives and fend off loneliness. We all love our pets, but we need human companionship as well.(Hint, hint). Aw, don't let this lady, whom you obviously like, fly away with the birds (or chickens). Although you are self-sufficient, it's also nice to share Our Creator's gifts with someone else. End of lecture. I hope that you don't resent my advice. I mean no harm. I just would like to see you less as a loner. I know that if something happened to me, I would like my Hubby to find new love. We have so little time on this planet, it is important to live life to the fullest, each and every day.

Do you sleepwalk when the bed is against the wall? I figure, you might wake Hubby when you crawl over him. You might be able to find a safety net to place beside the bed. Sorry to hear about your fall again. Take care, you do have positive thoughts coming your way. Bless you:)
