Good afternoon,my fine feathered friends. Beautiful day today. Glad that Abeliever is back. AW must be outside today doing his chores. Me, I'm having a lazy day and need to get moving. More coffee might do the trick. All kinds of birds, but mostly starlings, blackbirds, and grackles, are peppering the lawn. Looks like an Alfred Hitchcock movie here. Too much of a good thing leaves a lot of guano.
I have been out since daylight cleaning out an old tromped down fence line full of vines so that I can run the tiller right up to where the old fence and vines were. It is a tiller that goes behind the tractor and the vines and wire would just wind around and be a mess to take out.

Take a little good Advice from an old Farmer:
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered... not yelled.
Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.
Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.
Don't judge folks by their relatives.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.
If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around..
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
Good afternoon AB. This was mainly good advice but just a couple I don't necessarily agree with. That being:

Life is not simpler if you just plow around a stump. Burn the thing and then it won't be there for years for you to run over and hurt yourself or tear up your equipment. Same with "stump" people, burn them and move on... LOL

Don't worry about making a fence horse high, pig tight, or bull strong. Just get rid of all 3 and get some chickens. LOL

This is so true,especially the last sentence. We have to stand our ground. Young people don't understand this right now. Let them get older(if they make it),they will know then. That's if it wouldn't be to late.

I was going to comment on that last sentence too, but did not. I totally agree with it. I am not going to fight to try to prove my manhood, I have had my manhood for many years.

But I just might be like the old guy that went into a club and some smart punk started picking on him and said "I know Karate". The old guy said "So What? I know tire tool" LOL

Oh, I hate vines. Not only do they tangle up, you can't kill'em. I have vines around the house that the previous owner planted. I have cursed those vines for 15 years. I have tried to poison them, pour salt and bleach on them, pull them up by their neverending roots, and the best I can do is use a weed eater after mowing as close to the house as possible. They might be good for something, though. If a sinkhole ever opens underfoot, I can always climb those danged vines topside. Lala P.S. I have some nasty vines that have climbed up a couple of trees. Not only have they taken over the trees, the vine actually grafted itself to the trees. What the heck are those alien things. Only in Kentucky,and I never saw the likes of them anywhere else!!!

Just watching the birds eat up those seeds. Lots of varieties out there. I wish the black birds would stop being such bullies.

Please send a signal to the birds at my place that you have seeds. I am infested with birds. I love 'em, but enough is enough. How have you been sleeping lately. I stayed up half the night and woke up early. Tried to take a nap this afternoon, and nope, nothing, still wide awake but exhausted..

Well, I would do some sort of smoke signals, but I'm afraid they wouldn't see it. Sleep is NOT my friend. I have been working 6am to 3pm, and so I was getting up at 4am. So sleeping from 2am to 4am. Just tired. Now I will go back to 8am to 7pm, maybe I can sleep later. I dunno.

Well if you go by the bible then it would mean the 7th seal has been broken and the end of times are near.If you by science there is a reasonable explaination for the birds dying.Myself I think there is something going on here that will end up being explained.I think it is strange how ever that dead birds in 3 states and dead fish being found on the shores.The crazy weather pattern,volcanic activity,earthquakes,tornados in the middle of winter.Makes you think.

Morning walk finished. Enjoyed the warm breeze and the wild geese as well as all of the other fowl. Well, there are about eight chemtrails this morning. Twice as many as yesterday:( Looks like today's weather will be better than yesterday. Daughter and I enjoyed the video of twin colts yesterday,AB. The one appeared so aristocratic with his or her little ears perked. Lol. Their intelligence is something else. Well, to All a blissful day and to those who are ill blessings be with you for recovery and happiness. Good day:)

To remove vines take shears or a sharp scythe and cut them, then pull out by the roots by using a shovel or tiller, then spray with a soapy detergent remnants of roots. Vines cannot be destroyed by just pulling them from the top of the ground; their root system needs to be nonfunctional.

If the wildlife are dying, that might mean that there is pollution in the air. It might not be safe for humans, either, and should be tested.

Why don't you go to the doctor to discuss this. I have insomnia so bad that I can literally stay awake with only 2-3 hours sleep total. This might go on for weeks until I finally crash and sleep on and off for a day or two. This was very disruptive when I was working, and now that I have the little guy to raise, I can't do this and parent effectively. So off to the doc. I went. Tried Ambien....stay away from that one. Nightmares, bizarre dreams and sleepwalking. Tried OTC sleep aids..no dice. Finally, the doc tried Ativan 1 milligram (low dose. It keeps me sleeping for 4 or 5 hours a night. Not optimal, but acceptable. I will never use all of my prescription.....don't want more pills. But when insomnia gets bad and stays awhile, it's dangerous, because you can fall asleep driving. So I take Ativan for about a month... get my 4-5 hours a night, and reset my sleep cycle. And then I'm ok for awhile. Its not the best solution, but it does help some. I really feel bad for you. I honestly know how you feel, and it is not pleasant.

Oh this isn't a new thing. I have had this since I was 16 years old. I've tried every pill they could throw at me, OTC meds, and sleep treatments, nothing...I have never actually had that issue with falling asleep when I drive. If I know I am sleepy, I just won't drive. Once I get too tired, I will sleep, jus not often.
It was another wonderful day!!

Hello everyone! Missed being here...computer problems!

When sleeps eludes me I just pop a Tylenol pm. Thankfully that's all I need and if I stay away from the caffeine then I generally don't need that.

Got my new bird feeders out! It took a couple of days for the birds to show up but now? I need to own a sunflower seed factory! Lol. Wild canaries(?) doves, one flicker. Cardinals. However they dont seem to go for walmart value bird feed.
