I agree-- mine is just how my brain works. Work related stress only aggravates mine. It's like my brain catches on things and I can't shut it off long enough to get into dreamland. After many years, I've learned to work around it.
I know how that is. Can't sleep. Thinking too much about all the things I need to do. It's INSANE!

Good Morning Blue. I won't tell DOT on you but you must reciprocate LOL I think Global Warming has been placed on the back burner in lieu of all this bombardment on Gay marriage. I wish they would just let those fools get on with theirselves and Shut up and let the chips fall where they may. Remember the story on Sodom and Gomorrah.

Too many people are trying to tell others how to live or not live including not drinking big colas, smoking, ad infinitum. If people want to engage in activities that do them in, let em. I won't be standing on the sidewalk telling some fool to jump or not jump, I will just get out of his way so he won't land on me. LOL

Much to do outdoors over the next few days and weeks and looking forward to doing that instead of sitting in the house looking out the window at all the rain and snow and mud. Life is Good. GOD is GREAT. Be SAFE out there, the life you save might be mine. LOL
So true

Perhaps you can ask your doctor about a mild sleeping medication. I once had a two-month bout of insomnia that allowed me only two to four hours of sleep per night. Then I would have to go to work which required me to drive a fair distance from the different places where I consulted. On the way home,after a 10 or 11 hour day, I would be dozing behind the wheel, which was not good. Anyway, I took the sleep med for a couple of months, but not before days off. I slept 6 or 7 hours per night, and it reset my sleep. Now, I am retired like AW and I have no schedule, except for our little guy, but I get up like clockwork at 6 in the morning. I do have the luxury of a nap later in the day, if I need one.

LOL AW, leave it to you to be politically incorrect, but I agree with you wholeheartedly. I never worried about what anyone ate, drank, smoked,or whatever else they wanted to do behind closed doors. There are too many rules to follow these days. I want to be free to make or not make my own mistakes, and I never ask about anyone's private decisions. I have enough trouble running my own life.....

Yep, you can count on me to swim up-stream LOL I have even been known to stand up in the middle of a church sermon when others were saying "Amen" and I would say "That ain't right". LOL

I think a lot of church rules are just man-made to maintain social conformity of the group and that is the last thing I want to be... "a politically correct conformist".

Good morning birdthreaders, Sun shining, birds singing, still nippy out, but no "s". Yay. I guess there is a bounty out on the Pa groundhog huh? lol

betty, I was busy until late each night and too tired for the computer. We had a "Revolution" party for the new season opener that left a hanging after we were all hooked on it. Awesome show. I know Belie must like it as well as Hempburn and I do. We also have been busy the last couple days getting the kiddies the decorations and activities planned for Easter Sunday. I am hoping we don't get the rain they are calling for. It would be nice to have a "Spring" day. We have a plan "B" as always. I remember one Easter in the 70's that it snowed. You know how much fun it is watching those kids Easter Egg hunt.:)

Hello Blue, glad to see you dropped in and let us know you are okay. With the crazy weather I am sure you have seen it all on the roads out there. I hope your Dad is still doing good. Take care and be safe out there.

Where's Nope been? Hello to lala, misty-eyed, so true, and the rest of you.

Welcome to the BIRD thread Anne.

I hope you all have a Wonderful Wednesday!!

Picture Of Pit Bull With Bird On Its Head And Surrounded By Bunnies Goes Viral (PHOTO)

It's no secret that pit bulls get a bad rap. Myths that the dogs have "locking jaws" and always fight to the death are widespread, and studies have shown that the media sensationalize pit bull attacks.

That's probably among the reasons this picture, entitled "Your typical violent and aggressive pit bull," went viral on Reddit over the weekend, garnering nearly 1,500 comments and nearly one million views.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/24/pict...

Too cute. Pit bulls get a bad name due to the fighting their owners promote. With good owners they are great dogs. My brother had one who was a real gem. I believe it is all in how they are raised, but understand the fear people have of them.

Best bag of mulch ever had this tiny baby squirrel inside

This one is crazy, but also cute.

What would you do if you found a squirrel so tiny that it's closer to a fetus than a baby? Would you nurse it back to health, so that it could grow into a strong, adorable squirrel, ready to take on the world and/or all the oak trees in its immediate vicinity? Thankfully, Redditor Nadtacular made that awesome choice after finding a baby squirrel in a bag of mulch — and he has these photos to prove it. It took four weeks for the squirrel, now known as Zip, to just open his eyes, and now, at five weeks, his owner says he's "fully aware and getting playful." Here's to a long life, full of acorns and regular photo updates of this sweet little guy.[Source]

I don't know if you have heard about all the earthquakes this week. A bunch and close too.

5.8-magnitude earthquake rattles Mexico City

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck Oaxaca, Mexico, on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway as far away as Mexico City, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Oaxaca is about 300 miles from Mexico City, where the tremors set off earthquake alarms, The Associated Press reported.

Staff at the Hotel Palacio Borghese in Oaxaca told NBC News that the quake set off the alarms, but that they did not feel it.

There were minor aftershocks in the city of Pinotepa Nacional on the Pacific Coast, but no reported injuries, Oaxaca Governor Gabino Cue tweeted on Tuesday.

The quake’s epicenter was about 20.5 miles deep, according to the USGS.

Interesting. Wonder how many more are "man-made"....HAARP? Fracking?

Scientists: Big Oklahoma quake in 2011 was man-made

The Nov. 6 earthquake that injured two people and damaged 14 homes was caused by injections of wastewater, scientists found.

WASHINGTON — A team of scientists have determined that a 5.6 magnitude quake in Oklahoma in 2011 was caused when oil drilling waste was injected deep underground.

That makes it the most powerful quake to be blamed on deep injections of wastewater, although not everyone agrees. Oklahoma's state seismologists say the quake was natural.

The Nov. 6 earthquake near Prague, Okla., injured two people, damaged 14 houses and was the strongest Midwestern quake in decades.

The new report says there was a smaller quake at the site of an old injection well, and that triggered the larger tremor. Records show the well pressure rising dramatically in 2006. The scientists say both combine to make a strong case that waste injections caused the quake.
The report was released Tuesday by the journal Geology.

FOR THE BIRDS:

Raptor Resource Project
~ Suspected First Hatch For Decorah Eagles 3/25 (Videos)~

(Click on the words "see more" to read entire post)
Thanks to Jim W., we have footage of what appears to be Mom and Dad Decorah reacting to a possible first hatch yesterday, March 25th. All indications are as such; Mom bringing food to the nest, Mom laying on the nest being rather antsy, Mom bringing in a new branch for an additional rail, and Mom and Dad both taking longer to turn the eggs or move things around in the nest bowl. The videos below are captures Jim got from yesterday, March 25th. We are most anxious for when the eaglets are tall enough to be seen in the nest.:) We don't know how many eggs there were for sure, but we hope Mom laid three again as she has done since 2009.

We really thank Jim, for his time and effort in providing these videos for us!

3/25 Mom moving nest bowl materials around her, mom looking around appearing to be more antsy.

DIY ant control.(Those little piss ants drive me crazy in the Spring, although I have a friend that has those huge one's you could almost strap a saddle to, hahaha)

Get Rid of Ants Solution

This is a recipe for getting rid of those pesky ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, put the solution on and they will be gone.

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons boric acid [purchase here: http://amzn.to/11nzGz6 ]
3 cups warm water

Directions:
1. Mix the sugar and boric acid well.
2. Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won't be too lumpy.
3. Store in a jar until ready to use.
4. When ready to use, put cotton into the top of a jar lid to fill it and then saturate the cotton to the top.
5. Place it in the location where it is needed.
6. Note: This solution will keep for a long while.

A good technique is to drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so the ants will find the solution sooner. It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will. When they do, do not disturb them as they drink. They will hang over the edge of the lid and drink for a while and then take it back to the nest killing the colony. Almost overnight they will be gone.
