Meanwhile in Russia:

Helicopter pilot and passengers pull drowning moose from icy water

There's a moose in the Russian lowlands with a new name and a new life, thanks to the eagle eye of Victor Zavalipich. The Russian helicopter pilot spotted a distressed female moose that had fallen into an icy pond and, after a run for equipment and help, managed to pull the 600-pound animal to safety. But that was only half the battle. The rescuers then massaged and stretched the exhausted, frozen moose and covered her with their jackets to warm her after her hours-long ordeal. As the men flew off in the chopper, the moose they'd named "Manka" and adorned with a blue ribbon, made her way back into the forest.

AW, my faith in mankind is renewed when I come across people like you. I have always helped others when they were truly in need, including sharing my home with people who were temporarily down in their luck. To me, monetary payment is of no value when I have enough to pay all my bills. My reward is intrinsic, knowing that I have helped someone get through a rough time in life. Our Creator has paid me many times, by allowing me to continue my life on this earth, and by providing all that I need.
I have a friend who is in an emotional crisis right now, and she tells me that she loses her temper over what I consider small misdeeds. She asked me how I seem to remain unruffled when 'bad' things happen. I told her that we are both in the twilight of our lives. We are not'old' nor do we think 'old'. I responded to her question with a question of my own. I asked her how long does she think she will remain in this world. A decade or two passes in the blink of an eye. If you look at life from this point of view, it seems very futile to "sweat the small stuff." Life is a gift and we can choose to treasure each day, or we can squander our days in trivial aggravations. I told my friend that I did not want to reach the end of my days and have regrets about what I should or should not have done. Each one of us is here on earth for a length of time that is swifter than the blink of an eye. Life should be enjoyed, not frittered away by worrying about negative
events and actions. We can never fully experience pleasure without having emotional or physical pain to which we can compare.
DITTO...Love that lala.:)

The CREATOR blessed us with a nice day and neither the older man or the Ancient Wolf fell off the roof or cut themselves with the skill saw or the saws-all or the mitre saw.(some of my tools). Nor did we smash any thumbs with the big framing hammer and had no need for strong language. LOL

I have the support rafters installed and next week I will take him and we will get and install the metal roofing and his cottage will leak no more or have a big swag in the roof line.

The elderly lady sent me home with a quart of vegetable soup and a big slice of baked cornbread and I had 1/2 of it for my supper and will have the other 1/2 tomorrow. I am blessed.

BTW.. my little dog insists on being wherever I am, so he climbed the ladder unassisted and spent the afternoon up on the roof "supervising". I decided he needed a drink, so I poured some bottled water into my waterproof hat.

Good evening bird threaders. It is such a beautiful night out I almost stayed out later but I am whooped from UK partying. Great day. I hope you all got out to enjoy it.

AW, I loved your story about dog. I know your help is greatly appreciated on the roof. I bet that soup and cornbread was good.

Hello Misty eyed, is your partner still on the road? I hope you had a great day.

I have a video my sister showed me that made me laugh so much. It is just adorable. That Granny could bust a move. hahaha

This granny certainly knows how to make an exit.
In a video posted on YouTube Wednesday, Nana, an 88-year-old grandma, dances her way out the door and down the steps to an awaiting car.

Her granddaughter films the adorable scene from the vehicle as Nana grooves her way down the steps, showing off her signature moves.

While other dancing grandmothers have swayed to more modern tunes, Nana sticks to the classics.
Her choice of song? Dion's 1961 pop sensation "Runaround Sue," of course.

"That's a good song. Put it on again," she requests, before giving an encore performance.
As the tune dies down, Nana explains: "I could dance all f***ing day."

I love this video and that song. It is just precious. Enjoy

It's when the sky is clear blue like it was this morning and then a couple planes criss cross and leave a long white line that eventually spreads out into one milky layer. If there are puffy clouds out it drives them to the ground. You can watch it happen. We have been watching them spray in the Louisville/Ft Knox area for almost two years. Here are a couple good sites to view and get an idea what they look like. Contrails evaporate shortly after take off, these are long white lines and the planes are crisscrossing the sky, not heading in one direction like commericial or military planes do.

Chemtrail Hall of Shame
(a website with excellent explanations and pictures)

Chemtrail spraying has now been acknowledged by the U.S. Air Force and the FAA, and was proposed to be banned in Senate Resolution HR 2977, sponsored by Congressman Kucinich, where it is named as an "exotic atmospheric weapons system." Later versions of the bill had references to chemtrails deleted. The coverup continues.

One of the most comprehensive site on this man-made phenomenon

Chemtrail Central

We still face, to paraphrase Conway, a total denial by governmental authorities, the shunning of this topic by mainstream media, the systematic discreditation of researchers, on-going cover-ups by the scientific establishment, and a coordinated systematic policy of disinformation to relegate the topic of chemtrails to the realm of fantasy and paranoid delusion.

Conspiracy Theorists Believe Some Jet Trails Contain Toxic Chemicals Called Chemtrails

You can google Chemtrails and read all day about them. I did research on them early on in the thread when we were all trying to figure out what killed the birds. Could have been methane gas released in the Madrid Fault Area too. Hope this helps. They do spray in the Etown area. Our bird thread betty has seen them.

Gallinippers! Monster Mosquitoes Poised to Strike Florida

One of the most ferocious insects you've ever heard of it's the size of a quarter and its painful bite has been compared to being knifed is set to invade Florida this summer.

The Sunshine State, already home to man-eating sinkholes, invading Burmese pythons, swarming sharks, tropical storms and other disasters, can expect to see an explosion of shaggy-haired gallinippers (Psorophora ciliata), a type of giant mosquito, according to entomologist Phil Kaufman of the University of Florida.

Gallinipper eggs hatch after a rainstorm or flood, and the state saw a big jump in the numbers of gallinippers last summer after Tropical Storm Debby dumped its load on Florida. Eggs laid last year could produce a bumper crop of the blood-sucking bugs this summer if Florida sees a soggy rainy season.

"I wouldn't be surprised, given the numbers we saw last year," Kaufman said in a statement. "When we hit the rainy cycle, we may see that again."
As insects go, gallinippers are particularly formidable. Their eggs lay dormant for years, awaiting the floodwaters that will enable them to hatch. Even in their larval stage, gallinippers are so tough they'll eat tadpoles and other small aquatic prey.[ Ouch! Nature's 10 Biggest Pests ]
And as adults, the voracious pests feed day and night (unlike everyday mosquitoes, which generally feed only at dawn and dusk). Their bodies are strong enough to bite through clothing, and they're known to go after pets, wild animals and even fish, reports.

Sinkholes, snakes, hurricanes, sharks, oh my, now killer mosquitoes. I think I would do Myrtle Beach or Nags Head if I had a Florida vacation planned. Plus they always have killer jellyfish too. lol

Cranky old man has no time for menacing snake

Time is precious for people of a certain age, presumably because they would like to maximize the time they have left. Or maybe they're just so extraordinarily cranky that being briefly delayed by what appears to be a poisonous snake is cause for a throw-down. The young, able-bodied people stand way back with their smartphones recording as this man, roughly 127 years old, does to this snake what he has likely done to numerous whippersnappers that dared get in his way while he was headed for the latrine ever since he served as military police in the Crimean War.

Looks like the birds were hoping to make a meal out of the snake instead of the other way around.

And a GODvine for lala:

Dog and Kangaroo Make the Cutest Best Friends

You wouldn't think that a dog and kangaroo could be best friends, but these two are! We're not sure how these two lovely creatures came to be friends, but we ARE thankful we get to see this interaction!

At least you will have something to read when you all get up in the wee hours. I plan on sleeping in. Have a great morning. Hope you sprung forward on the clocks. Yay, Spring is here.

Goodnight folks, you too hater icon pounder from Ill.
