@ Ab; Last summer we had a pair of kildees nesting in the driveway turnaround.(not sure of the correct spelling),they always nest in the gravels. they resemble a sea gull. when you get close to the nest,which ever one is setting will run a few feet,flop around like it has a broken wing to lure off preditars. Well,one hot day in august,I was mowing the yard,It was around 100 degs. the bird lokked like it was roasting. So I went to the shed,got some cracked corn,some bread,and a can lid full of water, put the feed and water about a foot from the nest which had four eggs. then I came back in the cabin,got me a cold drink,went out on the porch,sat down and watched the show ! Don't know what they eat, but its sure not corn or bread. They both worked for at least an hour to permanantly remove every last crumb of bread and corn! they would pick up all that they could in their mouth,fly off with it,and drop it in or next to the pond. They never touched the water,but I could tell they did not like it in their home,So I removed it and they were happy once again! It kind of reminded me of the ole-days ,When people were too proud to take hand-outs...Now days they will ask for it!

Howdy strangers! Long time no chat!! I've been busier than a one armed paper hanger around here.
Got the new "critter" moved in, settled in and seemingly quite content to be here. Again I seem to have found a perfect fit for the long timer resident critters. Life is good. Everyone is getting along like they were born together. I don't know HOW this keeps working out for me like this, but it does and I'm not going to question it!!
I've been trying to get back into better physical health the past week and have been taking longer walks outdoors again. Well other than during those "S" days, hehe. It's done wonders for not only my physical being but my mental health and sleeping habits as well. My diet has gone well and honestly I think I'm back on track after that illness struck me down in December.. Man, it knocked my feet out from under me, that's for sure. It's short time until Morels start popping up though and I wanna be ready!! YUMMO to Morels!!!! Does anyone else hunt them too?
Glad to see you back again, Blue. Did I miss Hemp in my catching up? I'll have to backtrack..
Well, it's garbage day. Time to carry out the refuse. I'm lucky enough to even have garbage service where I live and do pay dearly for it. Gotta make sure those guys earn my dollars, ROFLMBO~~
I might be back on later this evening, never can tell around here. It depends on what kind of entertainment the animals are providing. They can be so funny to watch.
May the Lord continue to bless you all just as he has me!!
Have a great day!!!
HEY ! you blue-eyed beuttie of an eyeball ! haha! Your starving me to death...We were already picking mushrooms this time last year. Crazy weather just won't give us a break. but I got a feel'n it won't be long now ! Happy Hunt'n !

Howdy, Rapid. So you like the "new" eyeball? It passes inspection then!! WooHoooo!

Good to "see" you again. I missed all of you guys the last few days. Really I did. This thread is a breath of fresh air.

I sat here for a while, waiting on the garbage truck to come. They've passed me by before and I've had to call and scold them, hehe. So I took a break from the housework with a fresh hot cup of coffee and waited to hear them coming down the road so I could chase them down if they missed me again.. But they made it, so now I'm off to do some household chores.

Take care till later~~

I have been watching them for a couple years and think people could learn from them. It really is a joint effort for them to scout the nest, build it,(if they don't use one already used before), they both incubate the eggs, hunt for food, etc...It is a joy to watch these magnificient birds up close. Last year I watched them raise 3, unfortunately one was killed in high wires, but the other two are surviving well. They track them and we get to see them in their adult glory. Hope to see them mating and part of the program soon.
Oh, I so agree. It's amazing the instincts birds and other animals have. They do not go off and leave their babies endangered in autos with notes attached or not. The males take the initiative to help, no asking. Hehe. Glad to hear that two babies survived last year. We love the Birds;) Thanks for your updates:)

Just took out trash and put on coffee ten minutes ago. Hehe. I like that eye as well. I've been walking about two miles a week...need to bump it up to three. Are there a lot of morels in Ky? I wish I knew were to hunt. Love mushrooms. Public land is off limits, I know. You enjoy those critters. They sure are lucky to have ya:)

I am an independent, stubborn ole cuss and don't care who knows it LOL I have been out working all morning and still keeping at it even though my cold, arthritic fingers won't hold onto the hammer, nails, drill bit and screws. I keep having to climb up and down the ladder to get the things these fingers drop... But I won't give up and be a crybaby. hahaha Besides, climbing that ladder is good exercise. You folks have a good day, I just came in to warm my fingers and put some more wood in the stove.

Kentucky Legislature Passes Hemp Bill, Rand Paul Vows Support From D.C.

Mike Riggs|Mar. 27, 2013 10:49 am

Kentucky Senate joined the House in approving a hemp regulation bill last night. This morning, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) released a statement applauding the bill's passage and promising to continue to push for a federal waiver from the Controlled Substances Act for future Kentucky hemp growers:

“I commend the Kentucky General Assembly for final passage of Senate Bill 50. I want to thank Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Paul Hornback and the members of the Kentucky Industrial Hemp Commission for their leadership and hard work in passing this legislation,” Sen. Paul said.

“Senate Bill 50 is an important step forward in the reintroduction of industrial hemp in Kentucky. I have pledged, along with Rep. John Yarmuth, to seek a waiver when a regulatory framework is in place. I will follow through on that pledge and I hope that Kentucky will soon start growing hemp, creating jobs and leading the nation in this industry again.”

Earlier this month, libertarian activist Matt Hurtt wrote for Reason about Kentucky's push for industrial hemp legalization, and the support role Paul and Sen. Mitch McConnell are playing at the federal level.
