Ths morning I found a very small birds nest on the ground under my front yard trees.It was about 2 inches in diameter,inside,the bottom was grey fuzz,and the sides twigs.Altogether it was only about 3 inches across.Very small.Any one know what bird would be so small?And isn`t it too early for birds nests?I have been trying to attract humming birds without much success,
I have seen birds mating and they are definitely starting nests. I have never seen this so early in the season. Very strange, and likely related to climate change. We have tons of starlings in our area. One tree was absolutely full of them.

Maybe you are much like me and really are a cook, just not a chef. And I can "eat" while wearing a flannel shirt and blue jeans and not need to "dine" while wearing a white shirt with a bow tie. LOL
I would replace your salt pork with Clifty Farm country ham pieces for seasoning and serve up with hot baked cornbread dripping in butter. The taters, onions and cole slaw would be enough for me and I could save the sweet corn for another day. Oh, and a really cold glass of milk. Heaven on a plate. Blessings to you too.
I prefer to eat and not dine. Hubby and I decided to go out to eat one evening after I had finished working for the day. We stumbled upon a restaurant and didn't realize it was an establishment for fine dining. When the meals came, there were only four or five small meat "medallions." The plate presentation was superb, but definitely not enough for "eating." We looked at each other and burst out laughing. Paying $15.00 for a few morsels of meat and about a half cup of mashed potatoes, along with a comparable amount of vegetables was a total ripoff, and could barely fill a thimble.

The suet cakes sound like a good option! You"guys" may have just motivated me into action on this! I did google pileated woodpeckers and there's even a birdhouse plan! With all or most of you being country with woods, gardens, and farms I knew you probably had more experience with these birds! Many people don't even know they exist since the birds generally stay near woods!
Now, whats for supper? ham n beans with chopped onions, cornbread, cole slaw and potatoes? Yum ! Yum!
I put a pot with a ham bone and ham scraps on the wood burning stove early this morning after I saw the menu. LOL Slow cook all day and ought to be prime for supper time while I work outside. LOL I bet the dog won't be wanting to pull my finger. hehehe

The boy who shot the mom in the leg and then shot the 13 month old baby in the face(the baby died)should be tried as an adult. He should get life without parole. Because when he gets out,I doubt if he would be able to get an average job. Who would want to hire a cold blooded baby killer. That's what people would know him by. I wouldn't hire him.

One of the problems I could not do,but as a society of people,why do we keep these type of people in jail,then release them out into the public again?
I read where Gitmo is being made into some sort of Country Club Jail.Why not find an island and go back to the idea of Devils Island?We could absolve our bleeding hearts by giving them supplies,but leave them on their own,unable to leave!

Talk about harming the innocents!!!

Happy Noon Saturday bird threaders. Looks like our hater was here. Guess they don't like the bird thread because we don't talk trash huh? I hope everyone had a great week. Birds are chirping, sun is shining, almost 43 degrees and they are still using that "s" word. Ugh.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

@ betty, I seen this on fb and thought of you. I love febreze. I am going to try it. I buy the big refil bottle and keep my sprayer full. It is the best I have ever used. I can't stand Glade etc...

Homemade Febreze

Preparation:
Using a funnel, pour fabric softener and baking soda into your spray bottle. Fill spray bottle with hot tap water and shake well. Don't forget to twist the nozzle over to the LOCK position if you're using a Febreze bottle, or you might fall on your hiney. Now go spray every fabric surface in your house and take a nap on your very comfortable and now un-stinky couch.:)

Store-bought Febreze:$5.59
Homemade Febreze:$0.15
Total Savings:$5.44 OR 97.35!

@Betty..what does it matter if your 2 kinds of sweet corn cross pollinates? It will still be sweet. The only thing we ever concerned ourselves with was to not put field corn, sweet corn, or pop corn that close together.
As for planting year old corn, one thing you can do is soak it overnight in water first. You can also do that to "hurry along" your beans. Then if it don't sprout out in a couple weeks, you can go back and add some more kernels to the bare spots. I hope this answers your questions.
lol...i think i was worried they would kill each other or something.

but i think my problem is im just over thinking it..... i got into a blog about barrier crops and it all went downhill from there.... but yeh i guess they are both just swt corn so it shouldn't really matter

i have just been trying to figure out what i did wrong the last two summers but i think i have come to the conclusion that i just didn't plant enough.

Guess I left off the ingredients. hahaha

What you'll need:
1/8 Cup of fabric softener (I used Downy April Fresh)
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
Hot tap water
Spray bottle (I used my empty 27 oz. Febreze bottle)

Preparation:
Using a funnel, pour fabric softener and baking soda into your spray bottle. Fill spray bottle with hot tap water and shake well. Don't forget to twist the nozzle over to the LOCK position if you're using a Febreze bottle, or you might fall on your hiney.

30 photos of unlikely animal friendships will make your heart melt

Ebony and ivory work together in perfect harmony. So do huge dogs and newborn foals, tigers and pigs, frogs and mice — even bear cubs and Rottweilers. Even though those are unlikely pairings, these critters put their differences (and fangs) aside and let the love shine through. As humankind continues to battle over land, oil and social values, it's clear we have much to learn from these beautiful beasts. Until they're hungry at least, in which case you can be sure somebody's getting eaten.

Humans should try this, don't ya think? I love these. Enjoy

For lala:

Mini horse stands tall as service animal for Alaska boy

A miniature horse has been trained to help a 4-year-old Alaska boy who suffers from a rare genetic disorder that could leave him wheelchair-bound when he gets older. School officials and students welcome the horse as just another classmate.
