There were magnificent. I had to laugh when I see the horse story had made it as the Godvine story like so many videos do. I had to watch it again, it is so funny.

We knew horses were smart, but we didn't know they were THIS smart! Watch as one of God's beautiful creatures outwits his owners and helps himself and his friend out of their stalls!

haha, I agree. That horse wasn't having any of that competition. It definitely looked like it was deliberate. I love the animal videos. lol

I also like the love, compassion, and effort that humans display trying to save them. I post allot of those too! Here's one I seen today:

This frigid swimming pool is no place for a blind horse

Meet Payton, a blind horse who wandered away from her Indiana home and plunged into a neighbor's frigid swimming pool. Jack Harvey discovered the stranded horse in his pool Sunday morning and called for help, but when the horse began to shiver and lose consciousness, Harvey and a sheriff's deputy brought his Jeep to the side of the pool and used a winch to help guide her to the shallow end, cutting the pool cover as she moved along. Finally more help arrived and a team coaxed Payton up the steps and onto dry land, bundling her up with blankets in Harvey's heated garage. Payton's now been returned to her thankful owner and is doing fine.

Speaking of smart, I see a girl in Essux, was recently tested and found to have an IQ of 161. Well, that's good and all but I just can't date a woman with an IQ ten points higher than me,, no way.

Miss your morning reports. I read every one of them. You know, when Una passed, you just happened to stop posting around the same time. For a short time, I thought that Una may have had a "good sock" and was posting under your moniker. I went all the way back to Una's last post, to try to find "Hempburn" posting after that date. It was with great relief that I found you. LOL. How's the pup doing?
Pup is being a pup,, seems he forgot he is fully house broken today and left a butt biscuit in the house. I think he's more mexican than russell, little immigrant.

Hello Hempburn, Betty, glad to see you.

Happy the pup is doing good.

We turned the the SOTU on as soon as UK lost that game to Florida.

Glad you are here to enjoy this dog/cat/fox videos. I figured I would read up on the news, post a few things for those popping back in to read after I sign off. lol

Your dog really does understand you...

Dog owners swear their pet understands them - and scientists think so too

Cat and fox pals prove unlikely animal friends might be the sweetest

It's hard to decide which is cuter: the fluffy fox or the soft-looking white kitty with the little black Mohawk stripe. But cutest of all might be the unlikely friendship between these two creatures that's as touching as it is surprising. Click through the photos above to see them frolic and play together on rocky terrain. A little harmless wrestling (never mind those sharp teeth), some scampering (with the cat chasing the fox, no less), and finally, a happy snuggle. Can we get a collective "Aw"?[Source]

Hi Bird peeps. Glad to see everyone tonight. I've been laying low today, not feeling well again.

Two days ago heart palpations started back up again with a vengeance and I just generally feel like crap. Getting dizzy spells again, periods of being lightheaded, and shortness of breath too. It comes and goes. I have no idea what's going on, but I have a feeling that I probably have another artery that's severely blocked again. It's too soon though, since not long ago I had an angioplasty with stent placements.

So those of you who believe in prayer, could you send some my way? It's too early for me to start having symptoms like this already after my last procedure and I'm getting worried. On top of these symptoms, it causes me to have severe panic attacks because I don't know yet what's going on.. Anyone who's ever had a heart attack is well aware that you don't generally know one is coming until it stomps your butt...

Thanks guys. I'd appreciate all the prayers you all can muster up. There is power in numbers!! And I believe in the power of prayer!!

Love ya'll,

Oh no, I was just thinking about you with my bird videos for the night, plus we had noticed you hadn't been here. I think lala even mentioned it. I am so sorry to hear about that and yes, we will definitely pray for you. Hope you are okay. I just posted about heart attacks. You are right there is power in numbers. Hope you feel better.

&#8206;~ 02/12/13: Mom & Dad Surprise Us With A Visit ~

Mom and Dad make a brief appearance on camera today and tidy up the original nest a bit about 1:43pm CST.(They did not bring any nesting materials or sticks in on this visit.) About 8 minutes later, vocals were heard in an apparent off camera mating. Our thanks to video maker 989razzle who has combined both the nest visit and off cam vocals in this link.

We are still unsure of which nest our Mom & Dad intend to use, but as we are approaching egg laying time pretty soon, we will just keep watching and waiting. We will let you know as soon as they have determined which nest they will use for 2013.

Thanks AB. I'm feeling the exact same way I was before my last cardio crash. And like I said, this is too soon. I just had a procedure done not long ago. So something isn't right.

Thanks for the prayers. I can't pass away yet. All I ask of the Lord is for me to outlive my critter babies. And that's not really a far fetched request. They're all getting pretty old now.

The medical tests and whatnot just take SO long to get the results back from. I know that these panic attacks have GOT to stop. They're not healthy either. Stress is a huge no-no...

I've done everything I can do. Diet changes, no sodium, aspirin, plenty of water, meds taken on the HOUR they are due, etc. Problem is? This is another hereditary family trait. One of three, with cancer being the only one I've been spared from so far. My diet was healthy even before this. So the diabetes and heart condition just came because they're the cards I was dealt.

Thanks again for the prayers!

You are most welcome "Nope", I hope you feel better. All three of those medical kills run deep in my family genes. Anyone of us could be next. I try not to worry about it but do all I can to prevent it and just live life. We all have to deal with dark clouds hanging over us from time to time. Just stay positive and continue praying. Prayers are our strongest defense. They work and the more praying for you the better.

Get some rest and keep up posted.

I am off to bed, it has been an eventful day and I am whooped.

Goodnight!

To you all;

God please bless my family,
wherever they may be.
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For theyíre so close to me.

And God, there is just one more thing
I wish that You could do;
Hope You donít mind me asking,
can You bless my computer too?

Now I know that itís unusual
to Bless a motherboard.
But listen just a second
while I explain it all to You.

You see that little metal box
holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them
by the kindness that they give,
and this little scrap of metal
takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them,
much the same as You.
We share in what life brings us
and from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute
from Your duties up above,
to bless those in my chat rooms
that are filled with so much love.

I love my life. I have my piano, work, friends, lots of books and my grown children. I like my weirdness and embrace it.
Same here on loving life. I love to listen to piano, but after 6 years of lessons I still can't play and especially now that Arthur sits on my hands. I don't call it weird though, I prefer to call it "unique" and I have always liked unique things and unique people who did not feel like they had to be like someone else.

I have lived alone since the wife went to the nursing facility 9 years ago and passed 7 years ago. I have no need for nor plans to change life styles, but I do have many friends (and 22 chickens and a dog) lol.

I had bilateral cataract surgery, with new lenses implanted. For the first time in my life, I did not need to wear glasses, except to read. For an extra $5,000. per eye, I could have had implants that would allow me to see near and far. I said, for that kind of money, I could buy myself a ton of reading glasses. No, thanks.
I have perfect vision to read and look at the computer screen. Unlike most people, I have to take my glasses off to do so, but I need them to see the door when the dog wants to go out. LOL Eye people wanted to give me bifocals and I said why bother? I have already trained myself to put my glasses down to do close up work.

I read a lot ! I usually polish off two books a week jumping between fiction and non-fiction (big history fan).
I don't do fiction at all, I guess I am too interested in History to care for fiction. I especially like to read about the little details of the American Revolution and the Civil War and the "Roaring Twenties" and the Depression Era.

Example was the invention of the ice cream cone. It was the World's Fair in St. Louis (I believe 1806) when some guy was trying to sell waffles without much luck and another was trying to sell ice cream and ran out of bowls, so they rolled up the waffle and WOLLA... the cone!!(and even Sav-a-Lot sells a brand of nut covered cones called "World's Fair" and they are really good).

@Nope.. I am enjoying waking up and being able to see without the dilated pupils. Although miracles can and do happen, I won't try to out think GOD and pray for your healing. That may or may not be GOD's plan for us.

But I will pray that you can find PEACE and COMFORT in knowing that with or without a miracle healing, you can be stress free. I was asked today by the Doctor if I wanted to schedule a colon exam? or a prostrate exam? I said "NoPE" to both.

If I were 20 years younger then maybe I would, but at my age I am not likely to live another 20 years anyways so why spend all that time in the hospital? or a nursing home? or needing someone to watch over me? Thanks, but no Thanks. When it is my time, I will just wave "bye bye" and say "Thanks, for the ride".

Correction.. my eyes are better but my fingers are still... it was the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, not 1806.

Early morn, to all .... We travel so many places , in our life, never knowing where we may tread, or end up . Just ever now and then we walk on a spot that was really meant for us to be there. I have done this and without thought , traveled on. May we all go where home is , and may we know it when our feet come across it....

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)"
