Hi lala, I seen that. It was quite creepy. Apparently it was identified by Florida scientists as coming from a swordfish they believe some fisherman had cut it up and discarded the eyeballs. It was huge. I thought it looked the size of a small cantelope myself. lol

I know I am glad I didn't find it. haha

I hope you are having a great day! A little cool today and lots of leaves brought down by the storms. But I still have plenty of births. My rose buds that didn't bloom look sad.:( Winter is on it's way. Like you said it was nice to see the thread almost normal. Wish we could get OJG, Peace, Watch, Prepper, Betty, Hicky and a few others to come back and join us when we all get cabin fever. haha

LOL...that should say "I still have plenty of BIRDS" haha

Don't know where the word birth came from. I had one and that was enough. Don't know how people have more than one child. They are a lifetime commitment and very expensive. hahaha

Have a great day!

A BIRD story and one for Ancient Wolf at that! lol

Thousands of chickens saved in Turlock

Roughly fifty thousand chickens were abandoned at a poultry farm in Turlock. With the help of an animal rescue facility near Vacaville, over four thousand of those chickens made it out alive, making this rescue the largest farm animal rescue in Cali

http://specials.msn.com/msnvideo/video...

Love to watch these rescue videos like the Godvine ones I posted. Thank God there are such people out there. I still believe there are more GOOD people in the world than BAD.

I am ABELIEVER that good wins over evil.:)

Hi, Abeliever. Glad I caught you posting. It's a pretty quiet day. Hate to see winter coming on, though. I'm definitely a summer person, and I missed this year's summer totally. Oh, well, I'm gradually getting better. I chuckle when I hear about AW's chickens, following him to their new home. Years ago, I had a flock of chickens. When it came time to cook them for dinner, we couldn't eat our "friends." So the chickens all lived to a ripe old age. The last one lived until she was 17 years old. Not kidding. When our kids were young, we had to bring "Frisky" the chicken in the cellar when we had an old fashioned New England "nor'easter." That old hen happily ruled the roost for a LONG time.

I went to the chicken house today with a bucket of treats and one small chicken jumped up on my bucket and a 2nd one not to be outdone, jumped up on my shoulder and a 3rd one said "I can do better than that" and jumped up on top of my hat. LOL

Hi lala. I read about that eyeball washing onshore. A bit sad really. Considering the size of it and all, it must have been a majestic creature until it's death. To have lived long enough to have reached that size? It certainly must have been massive. I'm sure they'll ID it soon and tell the media what kind of sea creature it came from.

I wonder if they'll be able to test for a cause of death, for instance if it died from disease caused by pollution, etc.
(And if they do find out, would they tell us)?

Good afternoon to everyone else also, by the way! I read an earlier post from someone saying I lived in Cali and was a Mod? I surely hope we don't have to start rehashing that old argument again on here. It's gotten so redundant at this point. If I was so terribly worried about a comment count on here, don't you think I'd gray box my ID and then start posting my tail off with off topic drivel?? After all, a click is a click as far as the ad revenue goes, is it not?
LOL!

By the way, the storm missed us here too. At about 10 o'clock or so the rain hit the roof HARD. Could barely hear the t.v. for only about 60 seconds and then it stopped as quickly as it started. Had a little tiny cloud burst overhead and then it was gone. One of the stranger storms I've seen pass through my part of Kentucky.
(Yes, Kentucky. Not California).

Okay, well it's pizza pie day in our house. Time to get my tail in gear and do some housework before we head out for dinner.
Later taters!!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!

I love the quiet day I get today. Although I have been busy doing laundry/dishes/housework I plan on being lazy today. Don't have to work, be anywhere, see anyone, pick anyone up...I am settled in for the day. Monday is my TV night, The Voice, Hawaii 5-0, and late night comedy. Still tired from an active weekend nonstop.

I know what you mean about eating "friends". I have some friends that get attached to even their cows. I always told my husband when he hunted that he had to clean them because I don't want to eat something I met. lol I never knew how they could aim and shot at a beautiful deer with those eyes. I can cook it and eat it, but don't want to meet it. lol

How sweet, AW! I had a little banty RIR rooster one time, a tiny little thing he was. He had such gorgeous little feathers on his feet that almost resembled boots, hehe. He was so lovable. His banty wife "Chick" would follow close behind me while "Noodle" rode shotgun on my shoulder when I was outside doing chores. You couldn't sit outside on the porch without him in your lap. God's creatures, lol. So comical sometimes!! Company used to come over wanting a pic of them with him in their lap. He was such a pretty bird with all of his coloring and those long black tail feathers so sleek and shiny.
Good memories....

I have seen some chickens act like children. hahaha That is too cute.

Did you see where they were cashing in on the election? Too funny. Like the UK/UL bottles. Red State Bourbon or Blue State Bourbon. The first has a elephant on its label, the other, a donkey. Both bottles have the same hand-crafted bourbon whiskey inside, made in Bardstown, Kentucky.

Also, there was an article on booze, Lincoln and the Civil War

How Booze Built America: Lincoln and Booze

"How Booze Built America" looks at just how great a role alcohol played in the life of Abraham Lincoln.

I was watching a documentary recently about giant jellyfish off the coast of Japan. Apparently it reproduces at a rapid rate and and is growing much faster than normal. They do not know how to reduce the number of these creatures, and it is decimating the Japanese fishing industry. These mutated jellyfish are disturbing the ecosystem in the area, and clog the fishermen's nets with their numbers.

Hi AB. I just finished the dishes then swept and mopped the kitchen, so I sat down to enjoy a glass of iced tea while the floor dries.

Thanks for the kind words. Really though, the rumors started in my home town forums a couple of years ago. We all decided that we'd start to really keep up on and turn in threads that were abusive. After the Mods started taking them down is when it went viral.. We all know that it's rare when Mods join in on a really mundane thread.(Sometimes will, but it's rare). In this particular case they didn't and that's when a few haters started getting riled and decided that it must have been me, lol.

Not a bother. I liked this bird thread last year, specially the prepper advice that was started until it got hijacked. There is another thread on here that pops up occasionally about prepping and it's been ok so far.

I wish we could get back to some more of that thing on here once in a while. We all need all the helpful tidbits of advice we can gather because IT IS going to hit the fan eventually. Americans are much to spo8led with our easy lives..

We constantly see in the news how hated we are by other countries and we hear the rumors of impending attack against us almost daily. But it's just like a looming hurricane down south, they send warnings but people are so used to them that they rarely act in a manner that protects them adequately. Then when it's too late, they're lucky if they lived through it..

Bad days are coming. Those that don't prepare are going to either die or turn to crime in order to survive...

Hi lala..(((Hugs))), I read that story too. Scary. I figured it was from the big earthquake that hit and whatever leaked into the ocean from the nuclear plants. Pretty sad. Wildlife seems to gone amuck in several places. Poor bears are in the news every day mingling with people and their property. Hungry and being pushed out of their natural habitat no doubt.

NOPE, I agree about the thread getting on track. There is alot going on we need to prepare for and be aware of. I loved all the prepper lists and tips on being safe and prepared. Earthquakes are a big threat as Earth changes. December is the 201st anniversary of the big Madrid Fault Earthquake and they said it would probably go again every 200 or 300 years. Hope it is the 300 year prediction but that Mayan Prophecy makes me wonder. I don't think it will be the end, but it could be for some people just in a scenario such as that. With winter coming I hope while we are feeling cabin fever that some will join back in if the nastiness continues to be removed or they move on to another thread to stalk. This has always been my favorite thread. This is the only one I made friends on and email with some of them. We know alot about each other, shared pictures, history, family etc...I know some still read, but haven't posted because of the hijack, maybe they will come back. I post a comment now and then on issues cloes to home I feel passionate about, but that is all. Don't interact with the posters like here and don't follow them daily or anything. I don't have time or the desire to do so. I love this thread and all that I have learned from it last year and treasure my friendships with some.

You are right, I think bad days are coming too. There is so much targetting us, whether human, space, or natural disasters. It would be wise to pay attention and try to protect yourself and loved ones. Some of us get that.:)

I am almost done with all my chores and now going to go out and get some fresh air and sunshine. It is cool, but a beautiful day. We are blessed.

A couple BIRD stories:

Hate this one about the chickens, sorry Anicient Wolf, but I thought it was interesting how these chickens are like service dogs helping this child. I hope they find who did it and chastise and convict them for such cruelty. Satan working no doubt.

Autistic toddler's beloved therapy chickens beheaded by awful person

J.J. Hart doesn't know what happened to his "ducks" yet. The autistic toddler's parents kept several chickens in their backyard, feathered friends that the Harts credit with helping the 2-year-old to start vocalizing and expressing himself. The DeBary, Fla., family was fighting local officials over the right to keep the chickens, which the city called a "public nuisance." Although the community sided with the Harts ("My dog is more annoying," one neighbor said), an unspeakably cruel creature killed the chickens over the weekend, slashing all of their heads off. "I don't know how he's going to react to this," J.J.'s mom, Ashley, said. "I don't know if he is even going to be able to understand." [Source]

This judgmental bird thinks you are far from all that
5 hrs ago
Got a new job? Were you given a raise? Lost 20 pounds? Won a Nobel Prize? Met the love of your life? Sorry, but whatever amazing thing you've achieved lately does not impress this tawny frogmouth. Not one bit. This intimidating Australian bird has a range of facial expressions, all of which are judgmental. Damningly so. Looking at this guy too often could really screw with your self-esteem.

I love this bird. What an attitude he has. hahahaha Enjoy!

*Posting an article that discusses alcohol does not promote it. I don't drink!!! At least not on a daily, weekly basis. lol, My drinking consist of a glass of wine or a fruity sweet drink once or twice a year during the holidays or a wedding. I am always the DD. Just so you know.

Hi Saragon.((HUGS)), sure have missed you too. Still out fishing with the hubby before the weather prevents it? I bet you have been busy canning and getting ready for the winter. How is the family? Everytime I see a fish story I wonder if you seen it too. Like the big blue eye lala was talking about on the news they think is a swordfish's discarded by a fisherman cutting it up.

Thank you for that info. I will try that. I wondered if the gov't had shut them down so people didn't get too panicky seeing the MASS deaths.

I hope you are doing great and will come back and post again as the undesirables are being lead away. Hopefully we can go back to good conversations again. It would be nice with winter coming up soon and I so enjoyed it when the thread was going strong about interesting topics. Take care of yourself. I still have the same email if you want to email me or the others and catch up.

Love, hugs, and blessing to you and yours.:)
