<quoted text>Eh buddy. Who knows for sure but that's a good enough guess. I guess the wind could have blown the gas up there to the birds, the birds fell quite a ways according to the analysis...well, the one released to the public that I seen back then- right after they fell dead- anyways.
They ruled the cause of birdie death to be blunt force trauma in the ones they analyzed.
We have since moved on to other less/more?- Important topics.
Do you really feel that redistribution of wealth is our only option? I'm neither here nor there on the subject but I've seen your posts about that recently. I think that's a dangerous idea ha, I think the powers really in charge would kill us out in mass numbers before they'd let that happen. I know its hard for you to understand that kind of greed... but it does in fact exist and it is the number one driving factor for the powers that be.
You have dealt mostly with human beings, I doubt you'll ever get a clear picture of what kind of greedy self serving... animals we've allowed to take charge.
We've let it go much too far to see a fix in our lifetimes I fear.
understand lot what you are talking about.they are lot hope and cures. and i know to some it don't seem possible and you cant get big large amounts to ban together to change things .the small little unknown man will change things not with large army but with wisdom.the things the under ground small men are doing today that can be don and is being done. you would not believe until you know how its done so simple ever body has looked over it.i happened up on the blue prints by accidents.never knew who they belong to or how they stole them back from me but i can remember a whole lot about them the concept .they looked so simple i would try some my self but i guess i am scared in lot ways.untested things is not my thing.

They are assorted sizes. The best I can remember, they're approximately 4" x 4 " up to twice that size.

@Anne..........thank you much for your suggestions. If I can get the Belle to dig them out of the ancient archives back there in that long closet, I may "get into hot persoote" on this.(another Jackie Gleason!) Now as to what they look like.....there is every kind of stitch design you can imagine and from black, blue to lighter tweed and tans.

of the old time quilts were small pieces sowed together to make the top. then they would use a middle piece and a sheet for the bottom .then they would use a twine to tack it to gather .i can remember seeing little tied red twine about 6 inches apart all over one them .then they would sow the ends up.they was pretty quilts.they called a tacked quilt..

Life get's nowhere fast. We can head east or west or just wander around in the garden and either way, it is all over way too soon and our blossoms just wither and die. But it is good to see the beauty of the rose and smell it's sweet aroma while we can, even if we get pricked by the thorn that accompanies it.

As far as the other subject, the handwriting on the wall is pretty clear at this point. Calamity is near at hand, no doubt. Maybe ten or more years away but personally I doubt it'll be that long. I hope I'm wrong. I guarantee there are plans for mass containment. I've seen one of those camps, its supposed to be a storage area for forestry equipment, yeah right, six big empty dorms surrounded by two razzerwire fences to protect a couple of tractors.
I try not to dwell on it too much.

After Lavabit being shut down and the ACA- socialized insurance that is unaffordable with high prices and expensive deductibles- being passed, it won't surprise me whatever else happens. Lebar Levison handed over customers' information as it pertained to legal issue. I support, a businessman who has the integrity to close his private, technical business to keep our civil liberties and inalienably rights entact. 400,000 customers whose private chats, messages, pictures and credit card information need protected and not given to others without legal regard.
This kind of conduct reminds me of Nazi Germany and the Russian Bolsheviks. Our forefathers fought not for a country of free to have it destroyed from within. Yet, it happens with Manchurians.
Condolences to the Family who lost their home this holiday season. May blessings come in miscellaneous proportions.Peace and good will.
Misty,

I sent out all of the prayer request calls, mails and texts at 8, by noon the Elders of at least 8 of the larger churches were onsite, on phone and on email. Our Benevolence Committee got together WITHOUT a board meeting! The family is now in 5 adjoining hotel rooms at the Best Western about 9 miles away. Preachers' wives were there writing down shoe sizes, pants, shirts, blouses, coats and essentials were pulled from the local Food Pantry like toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash and you can guess the rest. They have been provided some cash but Sunday there will be special offering requests at most if not all area churches.

God was very busy here today. There were smiles everywhere,but none so much as the family. They were stunned. Thank You Father.

Did you see where a man was arrested for repeatedly firing a civil war canon at his neighbors? Apparently it had no gun powder to it, but had fire power and wadding.

It would have to have a gun powder charge to even fire. What it did not have was a cannon ball or grape shot. "Grape" being anything that could be rammed down the muzzle such as nails, glass, smaller pellets, and even pieces of stone.

The Civil War cannon balls were generally 20 pounders much like a bowling ball while others contained more explosives within the ball and exploded on impact. One of the primary advantages for the Union forces was the development of the "rifled" cannon where the rifling in the barrel allowed for more distance. The same rifling was employed with the Sharps rifles with telescopes. These Sharps rifles were first used by snipers (hated by normal troops) and became known as Sharps shooters, later abbreviated to SharpShooters. It is reported that Thomas J.(Stonewall) Jackson was initally wounded by friendly forces and subsequently died from pneumonia after having lost his arm from amputation by Old Sawbones.

Splitting firewood the old-fashioned hard way with a maul just for the exercise, plus I don't have any gas for the wood splitter. If the SHTF, I can keep on keeping on with a cross-cut, axe, and a maul as long as the old body holds out. Cinderella should be toasty the next time she visits and these muscles just might impress her. LOL

It's going to be a beautiful [email protected] Hope your muscles aren't too sore from all that wood splitting.
Apparently everyone had a wonderful evening yesterday. Yesterday was jam packed around here from 8am till 8pm.
I may have found a good source for some large geodes! From the sound of it some are small boulder size! Hope they are available as I've got a wonderful spot for them-- both sides of the steps to the back deck. Even as a child I collected pretty and unusual rocks. After all us kids left home Mom became a rock hound and had displays at the library and gave short rock talks at the schools. So I guess I came by it honestly. Lol
Time to rise and shine . Hope your day is wonderful.
:-( sad note. Headed to Winchester for the funeral of a long time acquaintance. He was suffering much so this is really a blessing.

That is sad-- but you will be in my town!
Remembering in elementary, when the teacher gave us the tray if rocks to learn. I loved the smooth, cold stones. Rosy Quartz was my favorite.

The "muscle thing" stirred this up,...just gotta tell it. The Belle, who is 13 years younger than me decided to play Annie Oakley or Dale Evens. Our new neighbor lady west of us invited her to go horse back riding (on her horses), of which she has 3. Well, long years back we had 3 Appaloosas of our own but......that was long ago....well, they went riding and you can imagine what her walking looked like the next day,....Popeye's! I know it wasn't very funny but it was one of them "I told ya so's".) But at least it's good to have a nice neighbor, ya know?..but not Hopalong for a wife!!!!
