Good evening bird threaders. How's it going? Cold and the little white flakes insist on hanging around. Glad it is above freezing. Not by much, it is mostly on the grass. Crazy weather. lol

@lala, this poor brother. Check out the videos and slide show. It shows where they have been reported on a map. It has Kentucky on there. I wonder who tracks all that. This story is just sad. Gread pictures of a bunch of sinkholes:

Massive sinkhole swallows Florida man — and it's still growing

Authorities evacuated neighbors Friday around a sinkhole that swallowed the interior of a Florida house — apparently taking a man to his death — describing the sinkhole as "seriously unstable" and likely to keep growing.

Jeffrey Bush, 36, hasn't been heard from since he screamed as a 20-foot-deep by 20-foot-wide hole opened underneath his family's home near Tampa late Thursday. Officials and engineers were continuing their search for him Friday.

"I couldn't get him out," said Bush's brother, Jeremy, who tried to rescue him. "All I thought I could hear was him screaming for me and hollering for me, but I couldn't do nothing."
The sinkhole was still growing Friday evening, officials said, and residents of homes on both sides were evacuated.

Engineers were using three-dimensional photos of the soil and other data to figure out the best way to stop its spread, said Bill Bracken, president of an engineering firm that was called in to assist. By Friday, the hole's "safety zone" — the land around it that was considered unstable — extended 100 feet, he said at a news conference. Meanwhile, it continued to deepen and presented a significant potential for what authorities called a "sudden collapse."

The sinkhole swallowed part of the interior of the house but left the exterior remarkably intact. The only thing sticking out of the hole was a small corner of a bed's box spring. Cables from a television led down into the hole, but the TV set, along with a dresser, was nowhere to be seen.
Jeremy Bush, brother of Jeffrey Bush, breaks down Friday, March 1, while speaking about trying to rescue his brother.

Officials lowered equipment into the sinkhole but didn't see any sign of life.

NBC station WFLA of Tampa reported that six people were in the house when the sinkhole tore through it about 11 p.m. ET. All but Jeffrey Bush escaped.

"They heard a sound they described as a car crash emanating from the bedroom," Hillsborough County Fire Chief Ron Rogers said outside the house in Seffner. "They rushed in. All they could see was part of a mattress sticking out of the hole. Essentially, the floor of the room had opened."

The hole almost got Jeremy Bush, too. But Hillsborough County sheriff's Deputy Douglas Duvall arrived to save him, WFLA reported.

Engineers work Friday, March 1, in front of a home where sinkhole opened up underneath a bedroom and swallowed a man in Seffner, Fla.

Sinkholes are relatively common in Florida, but they don't always cause injury or major disruption.
Officials said they didn't immediately know whether the neighborhood near Tampa has had problems in the past, but the threat is apparently evident enough that at least two companies in Seffner advertise their expertise in "sinkhole repair."

"Florida sits on a system of caverns filled with water," Rogers said. "As that water moves up and down, it erodes those caverns, and from time to time they collapse

Kids, just too funny. If you need a smile this video will give you one. What joy they are.

What One Baby Does Instead of Napping is Hilarious

After putting their baby down for a nap, one couple noticed that he started doing the funniest, strangest thing instead of falling asleep! You'll laugh when you see what this silly little boy does! How precious.

19 funny pictures of animals and people plotting to ruin someone's day

You can tell when something bad is about to go down. Animals and humans alike have a look they get in their eyes just before they steal your steak off the table (in the case of animals) or grab your phone to update Facebook with an embarrassing status message (in the case of humans or super-intelligent apes from the future). Want proof? Check out these adorable and funny pictures of people and animals plotting to ruin someone's day.

Thhe seal with the polar bear peering at him from the back and the cat and bird cracked me up. Picture of the kids with the one peering out of the door is kinda creepy.

Shelter is afraid no one will adopt this enormous 37-pound cat

There are cool cats and fat cats — and then there's Biscuit, who's both. This easygoing gray-and-white tabby tips the scales at 37 pounds, down from about 40 pounds. Workers at the St. Louis animal shelter currently caring for Biscuit hope his morbid obesity won't prevent someone from adopting him. The 4-year-old feline, who was returned to the shelter after his owner moved, is on a strict diet and getting friskier as he slims down. He's "sweet and loving" and enjoys being petted, a shelter worker says, adding, "If you talk to him, he’ll talk back." Aw, the big guy's just looking for someone with a big heart to love him back.[Source]

This is my favorite. Love the crazy things cats do.

This cat looks awfully comfortable on two paws
OK, have cats been able to stand this whole time? Because the posture of this tabby peering over a berm of snow looks so comfortable, so natural, so comfortable we’re starting to wonder if cats have some kind of conspiracy to conceal their humanlike abilities. Because of course, if cats made it clear they could walk around on two feet, then the next step would be them biking, then driving and then they’d be making payments on cars and we’d expect a share of rent from them and soon enough we’d be staying home napping all day and they’d be bringing us back cans of food to eat. As it is, on four paws they have the upperhand.[Source]

Well I am off to bed but before I go I have to share this cartoon that made me think of Una when it appeared on my fb page. I love Maxine. She cracks me up. I also posted a video of some of her cartoons for those who don't know the cartoon Maxine. They use to have an old man similiar attitude called Marvin. Haven't seen any of those in a while. Enjoy. I am sure Una would have gotten a laugh:

There’s nothing like a fart-noise ring tone to make getting calls in an elevator way more fun!

(wish I could have posted the picture) haha

Don't You Just Love Maxine!

You guys have a great night.

Spent a good part of the day comforting a friend who has a major life crisis, and I think that she is having a nervous breakdown. Prayers are needed.She is living alone (I hope temporarily) in a very rural area in upstate Maine.

@Abeliever: I did take note of that sinkhole in Florida. It's a sad day for the deceased man's brother.

@ Ancient Wolf Glad that you are getting your computer connection stabilized. Keep your lovely lady friend visiting for pizza night. I have given up all hope of being a matchmaker.

Have pleasant dreams, everyone and may your guardian angels guide you through the night. Right now I'm starting to watch the inside of my eyelids. I need to get off the computer before I fall off chair again. Time to take a shower before I start to smell like Una's pooter. Once again, good-night to all.

Actually, I did not answer because I really don't know where to buy cheap bird seed, but had you asked about cheap chicken feed or who has the best bologna, I would have answered. It is not a clique, you just have to ask the right questions LOL. No one needs to be alone, so cheer up.

Howls it goin Wolf? And Everyone else... It appears global warming has reversed this winter. Im not sure about the rest of the country but our neck of the woods seems to have had a pretty normal winter, temperature wise any way.

Quite a departure from last winter when we were enjoying most beautiful weather from about this time on. And now snow on the ground in March. I'll never forget the freak heat wave of last June and July though.

Have a good day Everyone. I just wanted to post somethin before I got out of here.

Good Morning Blueminer and everyone else. I went back for some more sleep and woke up to a phone call. It was nice to hear the phone ringing again even if it was a telemarketer. hahaha

It has been either internet or phone, but not both for 3 days now. I guess they finally got things fixed.

Just got back from Hardee's this morning, and saw about 100 dead birds on Hamilton field on 18th street. What's causing all the bird deaths?
