I love this story/video:

For captive cheetahs, a dog's life is ideal

Dogs and cats are widely known to be the best of enemies in neighborhoods around the world but at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in California, they are forming friendships that are helping to sustain a species. The park's cheetahs are being paired with canine companions to help them adapt to life in captivity and break down barriers that have prevented the big cats from breeding. Ben Gruber has more.

Why U So Tan? Ok. Unless you had been on this thread for awhile you would be confused I guess. The comment was about the subject in reference to a poster who went by Una Farter who passed away Jan 31 after posting on this thread. He had been here for awhile and loved to talk about passing gas. Not too weird for those of us who knew him via topix. Hope this helps explain it. He was a hoot. May he RIP.

Have a good day!

Good morning, my fine feathered friends. Speaking of birds, I don't recall seeing so many in the yard. I love to watch them. The only downside is that they poop all over the cars, porch swing, roof, etc. That is one dirty mess. But I love them anyway. I'll just have to wash the care a little more often.

@AW: "no posts for 9 hours" is probably because we're starting to become mundane again. It takes a lot of new ideas to keep the thread going. Does anybody out there have something interesting that they wish to talk about?

Okie Dokie...Just wondering.....Why does Spring begin on the 20th, Fall on the 22nd..but Summer and Winter on the 21st..why not split the difference and have them all on the 21st?

Aspartame has been considered as use for biochemical warfare. So, I never use artificial sweeteners. Stevia is the better alternative. Not too mention the fluoride. I have thought of using a peroxide/ baking soda paste for my children as a safer alternative. What an unsafe world we live :( All we can do is be thankful and blessed with our loved ones, the health we do have and live as merrily as possible. Sunshiny day. Our 11th Anniversary here;) Fine day to all...Spring is here!!! And some Bunny loves ya...LOL

Hi bird thread peeps! Spring may officially be here, but you sure can't convince me of it yet. Cold out there today and the chickens water bowl had a layer of ice on the top. Spring? Really??
Not...

I have the most amazing visitor coming to the chicken feed pan every day for the last week though. A woodpecker has discovered where good groceries are put out every day, hehe! Yes, a woodpecker!! I have actually seen it out there four times already and watched it eat. I can also hear it out in the trees, squawking for it's mate. It's such a site to see a woodpecker, the squirrels and the chickens eating in perfect harmony. God is good.

I'm gradually getting over the death of one of my dear pets. It's been hard on me, so I've not had much to talk about on here. Hopefully the thread will pick back up again soon! It looks very slow lately.

Well, here's wishing that everyone has a grand day! I'm going to head out for an early dinner with a friend in a little bit. We're going out for some Chinese. And for a change, I'm truly hungry for once. It will be nice to get out of the house for a while and not think about my poor little critter that's now gone. I miss her dearly...

Take care till later!!

That's an easy problem to solve. Whatever Puxatawny Phil says, just believe the opposite.

I say, Skin that whistle-pig, boil him three times, stick him in a roaster pan, throw in a couple of sweet potatoes, peppers and onion, cabbage, carrots, and whatever else we got laying around, Bake it real slow for about three hours, take the pig out and throw it to the dogs, and eat the vegetables !

@AB.. best egg here was a triple yolk and it was about the size of a goose egg. Poor chicken. I did get one soft shelled egg that rolled around like jello and I had to pick it up with a spoon just so it would not make the nest sticky and wet.

I have a red cardinal that has found out that I spill scratch grains out of the plastic storage tub that I keep it in. He spends most of the day sitting on top the tub waiting for me to come make another spill and when I do, he does not fly very far away. I had a left over piece of metal roofing laying on the ground and dog has learned that the metal roof is warmer than the ground when the sun is shining and he spends a lot of time sitting on the metal. Critters are much smarter than we give them credit for being. Surely was windy today.

'Evening to ya, AW. Yes, that wind was fierce today! More limbs in the yard here today too, but nothing else really large fell. For that, I'm thankful. By this time, everything that was going to fall probably has already anyhow... My yard people are no doubt going to demand extra for the first cut of the year. I can almost bank on it.. Honestly, they'd deserve it. I have millions of little twigs and small branches everywhere in the grassy area after this winter we've had.

And AW, you're SO right about the critters too. I sit here scratching my head more times than not while I watch the wildlife. Even observing the antics of my domestic critter kids too. Every domestic here is a rescue, but they all get along like they were born in the same room, on the same day, at the same second, from the same mother. No matter the breed, the species, the color, or the gender. They're amazing in the way they all get along with each other. Animals that would no doubt be arch enemies if they met out in the wild, coexist here in harmony. No one can logically say that animals DON'T have the ability to reason. Anyone who says they can't is in total denial and has probably never taken the time to watch them for very long.

I have a pair of wrens already moving nesting material in to one of the gourds that are hanging from the outer porch rafters. I don't know if this will be there the "real" nest or not. I've heard tell that they usually build a few fake "dummy" nests in the vicinity and from what I've seen years previous, I believe it. It's got to be a bit hard to thwart nest squatters who like to leave eggs and then the wrong bird parents are duped into doing the hard work of incubating and weening their young ones, LOL. Worse yet, thwart the predator birds who like to break eggs in nests so they can steal it for themselves. Pretty smart, huh? From both sides of the equation, you gotta admit, that's pretty danged smart..

It's SO cold tonight that I can hardly believe it's Spring. I'm about to go out and get a tanning bed membership for a month just to get some sunlight on my skin, fake or not, ROFLMBO!! Don't much care about the tan per se, I just want to see some bright light through my eyelids for a while, HAHAHA!! It's taking forever to be able to sit out on the porch and get some warmth on my aching old bones this year. What the?? That's all I got to say about that.. What the??? Old Punxsutawney Phil needs some career counseling. That whistle pig couldn't have been further off if they'd have taken him down to the Bahamas on Groundhog day..

Sorry to get long winded again, but just one more thing before I go: I am adopting another little critter. I've found that I can't shake this period of mourning for my other one that passed, so I'm going to fill the void with another needy little soul. A much littler needy soul this time, but still another blessing in disguise nonetheless. I have already found the perfect little heart that needs me and the other critters here for the rest of it's life. I'll pick it up sometime in the next few days.
I can't imagine a life without a "critter kingdom". Nor a life without me being THEIR human, hehe.
God is good.

Good night all.
(Again, sorry to get long winded once more. I always seem to manage doing that in here for some reason)...

Well, I had a comment to post. But for some reason it won't take. If I've been banned, I can't for the life of me imagine why. I never even utter a curse word on here. I don't get it. If this one shows up, it'll be a miracle.
