BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area. Full Story

<quoted text> Peggy Bundy from the show Married with Children got hers from Chernoble farms. Ive got a corn stalk with 9 ears in my garden. Two of the ears are quite large. One cluster has four small mishapen ears attached at the stalk in one spot another one has two ears attached to the stalk in the same place and there is a small ear a few inches from the ground. Its indian corn and growing in soil with composted horse rabbitt & chicken manure. I water it every day.
If you ever get one of them chickens to eat that corn & has a multiple head growth, remenber Old Army likes necks, if you have one that is all necks you may be rich. Old Army is an Oil barren. I see your manure problem, no pig shit.

I see where the kids have been digging off the coast of antarctica, found some palm tree remains. Info is there was palm trees growing on antarctica during the Eocene period abt 53 million years ago. They also found a book written by Algorea predicting an Ice age, Al said that the lack of government intervention & the fact people were building small camp fires instead of bond fires is contributing to the earth's cooling. Al said for some reason people would just not listen to him.

If I was young and had a gazillion dollars I would take my hot-rod SUV to Venus, where the women are, but just in case I would take along a couple of hottie Russian women.
