I'm afraid I really slacked off on feeding the birds this summer. There have been several small birds that found how to get into the chicken shed and they are frantic when I go in to check the water and feed.

I have about 350 good sized hand cut sandstone (formerly used as basement walls) that I've had placed 4 high around a curve at the pond. Lookin good! There still needs some sort of bushes and flowers to soften them up. Maybe next spring. A rail would be nice but that won't happen lol

Awhhh, nothing exotic just the locals, sparrows, chickadees, titmouse, bluejays, cardinals, etc. But I DO keep the "tree rats" thinned out rather considerably! They eat too much $$$$.(gotta ask, what does your abbreviation stand for.........or should I?)
.
@ Anne....hey, your stonework sounds great, almost Gothic...??... Like maybe the many colors of Climatus and / or several different vines that offer berries for the birds or tubulars for the hummers?
Hmmm-, wouldn't say "gothic" but at this point it's bare bones. Lol. The clematis and vines sound great.. Next summer I hope to finish it up .

Those "tree rats", they sure love to chew on plastic chairs .
Another time and different thread there was a troll named Tree Rat. Kinda a little crazy lol . Wonder where he wandered off to....

(Sorry. Human glitch in posting . Lol)
Anyway, when I'm signed in to my topix app my registered name will post in blue. My location shows as hidden, or its supposed to anyway. If I'm not signed in my name will show gray and will show various locations. For whatever reason while I was in northeast PA my location was showing Orlando FL. Several times while in Hawaii my location was showing somewhere in California. Sitting on my couch at my house gives another crazy location and a mile away I'll get something else. All the while I'm just a quick drive from Louisville. Go figure.
Ancient Wolfs location tended to jump around some also but his stayed in the same general area.
Well, MM, hope your night is more restful than mine has been. Guess I'm took old to eat late night pizza as it sure has kept me awake!

Well,.........late night (or really early morning, it's 4.32 A.M.) snacking don't really bother me all that much I guess. I just get bored cause I ain't that hungry! I just ate a bowl of sliced peaches, no sugar added, and I love them things. But I have eaten Meat Lovers Pizza from Pizza Hut for breakfast from time to time. Popcorn is my down-fall, though!!!!!....."Anytime " ........I can remember that when I was a boy laying in front of the fireplace on the floor I could smell it coming long before Mom bought it to us. Now those were the days. MMmmm MMM! Yassir! Do your young uns like popcorn?
Oh, I love popcorn! Sometimes for Friday night supper Mom would pop a kettle full and we'd grab an apple and some popcorn and settle down with our stash of comic books. Richie Rich. Archie, Casper, Hot Stuff. Batman, superman etc. No TV.
Yes the g'kids like popcorn but braces has slowed them down. I like the microwave kettle corn that Jolly Time has but nothing beats an old 2quart aluminum saucepan and a kitchen stove. Drizzle some melted butter or margarine over that freshly popped corn and wow!

Santa's come and gone but a couple trash bags of discarded wrapping paper sits by the door. No snow in my area either and it is so pretty the first day or so but then its time for it to go.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you!

Try to delete the app and add it again, that might help. Any plans for the New Years? I'm really wanting to go to New York but not this year with the snow, so maybe I'll settle for a indoor water park and then home to bake some cookies!

Popcorn... Long ago the folks popped corn that they had to first shell off the cob. Then put in a folding metal basket with a long handle and hold over the hot coals of a fireplace or the burner removed from the wood burning cook stove or a camp fire. Later Mom used a big pan with a lid and just slid the pan back and forth on top the old wood burner to keep the corn from sticking. I can still recall the noise of the sliding pan.
Popcorn balls were made with melting sorghum in a dish pan and with a little baking soda added to keep the molasses from boiling over. If one wants to raise their own popcorn, never plant it too close to eating or field corn. It will cross pollinate and won't pop. Hominy is made by soaking hardened field corn soaked in lye from wood ashes to remove the skin of the kernel. Grits are made from dried and ground hominy. Maybe I will make some store bought grits later for breakfast.

AW,
Great to see you here. I just wanted to tell you that I too remember the sound of that "sliding pan". Even now, when Mom pops corn in the pressure cooker (without the lid) she slides that pan the same way. I Wonder how far across America the tradition goes.... It's a great memory from my youth.

That's a good idea. I'll try that

The g'kids like indoor water parks and we've managed to get a few in. Not ever been to NYC though. Too much stress for me lol
