There would be considerable roadblocks to maneuver for the Rockets. Despite being tabbed the early favorites to land Howard, there are teams lining out the door to secure his services for the foreseeable future and it's not a foregone conclusion he will sign with Houston. And given their financial restrictions, the Rockets would likely have to work out a sign-and-trade deal with the Atlanta Hawks in order to bring Smith over.

Amick also reported on Tuesday that the team is looking to deal Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik to clear more than $8 million in salary cap space.

If the Rockets are able to land Howard and Smith, their starting lineup would immediately become one of the most formidable in the league with Harden, Patrick Beverley and Chandler Parsons. Depth may be a bit of an issue, although there would surely be a couple of veterans willing to exchange some cash for a chance to win a ring.

One consideration for the Rockets is whether or not they're willing to completely overhaul their roster which won 45 games last season. Howard and Smith are undoubtedly talented players, but they do come with their fair share of baggage. And with Harden already taking control as the team's leader last year, it may take a while for everyone to mesh.

It may be that Big D and Don't Care still come around from time to time under different identities. Imposter and Sybil do pop in sometimes, but of course old Una can't. I will say that they were all entertaining even though I did not agree with much of what they posted. But then I am a contrary old soul that don't agree with much of anyone. LOL Have as good a day as you can.

Hey birdthreaders, just wanted to hop on and wish you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July. I see the super moon brought out the hateful trolls again. Too funny. Like we care what they think. haha

I am glad to see "Nope" drop in. I loved your response AW to the fan of the trolls and Una. So true.

Hello betty, lala, misty-eyed, and the loyal bird threaders. I hope you all are enjoying the summer. I am loving these temps and we have minimal rain. Just enough. There are some areas though that are under flash flood warnings.

I hope you all enjoy your holiday.

GOD BLESS AMERICA. So grateful I live in a free country.

I'm going to leave you some funnies and something to read. It ought to bring on the icons. hahaha

For lala and the cat lovers:

Watch this silly kitty chase down the lettering on a treadmill

Forget catching mice; this kitty's determined to chase down the lettering on a treadmill. Who says you have to be on the treadmill to get a workout? Looks like this little guy's getting plenty of exercise working his way around it – add in a few paw jabs and he's getting an upper body workout, too. YouTube commenters are worried that one hooked claw could see this feline getting sucked under the belt and into the scary machinery, so watch out, kitty. In the meantime, good luck catching those pesky letters.

For AW, lala, betty, and all the dog lovers. This is an awesome video. Enjoy!

Sweet 'God made a dog' video has a message dog lovers can believe in

Anyone who knows and loves a dog may recognize some of the reasons why dog lovers are so passionate about their furry best friends in this video. Crafted in the style of this year's Ram Trucks' Super Bowl commercial, in which legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey's voice narrated that on the 8th day "God made a farmer," this adorable remake adds another day of creation. On the 9th day, the preacher-like voice says, "God looked down on His wide-eyed children and said,'They need a companion.' So God made a dog." For all these reasons and more, we have to agree: Dogs are pretty great.

What the cluck? Kid plays basketball with a live chicken

We'd file this in the "videos that cannot be explained" section if we had one. Watch this shirtless hoopster score a basket with a chicken. "He spins, he drives, he shoots, he scores!" So awesome and we're oh so happy he didn't dribble, so we'll overlook the traveling. Some might be tempted to call foul for violating animal rights, but it actually looks like this bird is having a pretty good time. And he's got a seriously good grasp of the rules of the game, swishing right through the net before flapping away so this kid can enjoy his moment in the virtual spotlight.

Not sure the chicken was a willing participant. haha

An aquatic drone that fetches your drink? Meet Ziphius

Here's a high-tech gadget that's perfect for your July 4th pool party, beach outing or boat trip … er, next summer. Ziphius, an "app-controlled aquatic drone" capable of sussing out marine life, playing catch or fetching your drink, is currently seeking funding via Kickstarter with an anticipated ship date of March 2014. Designed to be flexible and functional, cute and pet-like, the swimming drone can reach a speed of 6mph in the water, be controlled by your smartphone or tablet within a range of 300 feet, and capture and transmit images and video with a rotating, YouTube-ready HD camera. You can also change its outfit, because what fun is a pet-like, waterworthy doohicky if you can't dress it up?

Bet Una would've liked this one. lol I bet Hempburn would.

DIY

FINALLY...HERE IT IS!

How to clean your cookie sheets--Kitchen "Miracle" Cleaner!

You put about 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl and squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then you rub it on the offending dirt/stain/grease...whatever! You can usually just use your fingers...but you can also use a small sponge as well.

For the BIRDS: Eagle update

Raptor Resource Project
~ Videos of The Decorah Eagles from June 27th through 29th ~

There are three (3) videos in this post. Today's screen capture features D15 in……”Hey MOM, NO fair! You’re supposed to screee for ALL of us when it’s meal time.” D16 is on the nest eating a fish that Mom brought in, and D15 is flying in, hoping to get part of the fish.

Many thanks to Jim for making the videos for us, which allows me to get the screen captures to post for you!

http://youtu.be/9-zYLNqDUKE
6-27 (Fly-ins and fly-outs, misjudged landing at about 3:38 into the video)- Dad lands on the nest with a fish, none of the fledglings are there (yet), and we can tell that Dad is looking around and checking out what repairs will be needed on the nest in the fall. D15 lands on the nest at 25 seconds into the video and mantles over the fish. The scene changes and Dad takes off. D15 stays on the nest for a while looking around and then flies off the nest to the right. At 1:46 into the video D16 lands on the nest, the scene changes and D16 flies back off. At 2:14 into the video D16 lands on the nest again, digs for nestovers, gets dive-bombed by a black bird at 2:27, climbs the tree trunk, comes right back down and then flies off the nest at 2:58. At 3:08 into the video D17 lands on the nest, climbs the tree trunk and disappears at the top. Start watching the bottom of the video closely at about 3:36 and you can tell we have a fledgling that misjudges a landing on the nest and ends up perched on an outer, lower branch, of the nest. The fledgling flaps away maintaining its balance, and remains perched down below the nest in between flapping. At 5:43 into the video Mom lands on the nest with a fish drop. Shortly after Mom lands, so does D16 who mantles and then proceeds to tear and eat the fish. At 6:45 D16 flies off the nest on the left side. At 6:56 into the video D17 lands on the nest, and then climbs up the tree trunk to the upper part of the tree out of view. At 7:34 into the video we see D15 flying in from the bottom left, and then D15 lands on the nest. At 8:06 into the video D15 flies off to the right side. At 8:17 into the video D16 lands on the nest. At 8:38 D15 lands on the nest and joins D16, stays for a bit and then takes back off. D16 climbs up the tree trunk, perches for a bit, and then disappears into the upper part of the tree. At 11:00 into the video we can see that D16 moving around in the upper part of the tree. The scene changes, and at 11:20 into the video we see D16 land on the upper left branch and perch there. D16 moves over farther to the left with only its tail feathers in view. At 14:10 we can tell that D16 flew off the branch as we see the branch moving from a take-off. It’s been a busy day for the fledglings as they continue to fly around and explore, and then return back to their nest off and on.

6-28 (Visits to the nest, D16 arrives at 2:00pm, rests and practices, and leaves at 5:00pm)- It’s obvious our fledglings are perfecting their landings. What beautiful fly-in and landing D16 shows us. D16 looks around, and then climbs the tree trunk to the upper part of the tree. The scene changes and we see some upper tree activity. These fledglings love vertical branching in this tree, and they seem to have created their own northern runway off of the cottonwood. Another scene change and we see another fly-in, and fly-out. At 2:22 into the video Mom lands on the nest. Mom looks around as if she is totally surprised that none of the three fledglings had chased her there with food. That no-mantle zone for Mom ends quickly because at 2:43 into the video we see Mom look up as D16 flies down from above over to the right, circle around, and then make a spectacular landing on the nest at 2:57 and then mantle for the fish. At 3:11 into the video we see a fledgling circle below the nest (don’t blink), and at 3:27 we see D15 land on the nest and try to mantle for the fish. Mom flies off at 3:41 and we have two fledglings still on the nest. At 4:33 into the video D15 flies off of the nest and D16 stays on the nest tearing and eating a fish. D16 remains on the nest for quite some time (from 2:00pm to 5:00pm), and lays down for a rest. D16 climbs the tree trunk at 7:19 into the video, perches there for a bit, and then we see D16 climb farther above on the branch and begin to wingercize, and D16 lands back down on the nest at 8:03. D16 displays a very large wingspan and does some hovers in the wind while practicing wing flapping on the nest combined with some screee’ing also. Calling for fast food delivery? At 10:05 into the video D16 does a lengthy hover on the nest. The scene changes, D16 is screee’ing and then D16 flies off of the nest.

6-29 (Rain, juvie arrives at 1:00pm, a second arrives 10 minutes later, slow day in the nest)- We can see that it’s pouring rain in Decorah. The scene changes, the rain has let up and D16 lands on the nest at 18 seconds into the video. Then D17 lands on the nest at 48 seconds into the video and we see wings up in the air between them as they each display a bit of sibling rivalry. Or would that be wing-battle for nest position? The situation calms down and D17 flies off of the nest at 1:34 into the video. The scene changes, none of the fledglings are on the nest and at 1:46 into the video D16 lands back on the nest. At 2:10 into the video D16 climbs the tree trunk and disappears from our view. The scene changes, and at 2:28 into the video we see D17 land, and then climb the tree trunk. The rain starts coming down hard again and we catch brief glimpses of D17’s wings on the edge of the upper branch. At 3:13 into the video you can still see D17 moving around above. It was a rainy day and a slow day in the nest.

Enjoy!
