I hope so. This copy and paste junk is so useless and dumb.
I know, and I know the trolls here don't like their posts being removed, but that happens with spam here.
I had a baby Robin in my trash can. Yep. Trash can. No idea how it got in, but it couldn't get out. Momma bird was kicking up some dust about it. Luckily, I tipped the can over and the bird was able to hop out. The birds now hang out at my front door. Interesting.

I once had a rooster that would stand in front of my sliding glass doors while I was learning to play the mandolin. I thought it liked the music, but it was really messing up my steps. Then I realized it wasn't listening to me, but saw it's own reflection in the glass, and wanted to fight the intruder. To relieve him of his jealous anxiety, I wired a mirror inside the BACK of a wire cage and placed it where he could see it when he was on the step. I was not prepared for the entertainment that rooster provided me for the next two weeks, while he attempted to get "the chicken in the mirror". It is now one of my favorite songs on the mandolin.
Oh how funnny, but it does work though. I know you can sing to cattle and calm them , and sometimes it works with deers also. We had a mean rooster when I was little and my granny use to go back after him with a broom, he was mean though , he would eat us up if he got the chance. When I was younger , I sang wildwood flower, while my grandfather played the mandolin. Such a awesome thing. Memories I will never forget.

What an amazing and sweet story, "trusted". And as usual, the daily inspirational stories from "Abeliever" were a boost! Hope everyone is having a brilliant evening!

And thanks AW for the advice on the R.V. purchase. I have a few more questions for you if you'll be around a bit later on tonight! Much appreciated!!

I'm waiting for Wilfred to come on. I love that show, too bad it's only a half hour sitcom, hehe.

SO: Chat in a bit! Hopefully someone will be on here to converse with!

Hello "Nope", trusted, Blueminer, Ancient Wolf if you pop in. Hope you got the great drenching we did. Power went out for some, lots of thunder and lightning my way, lots of needed rain. Part of south western Kentucky is in a drought and this map is very informative. Did you see my earthquake report disappear? I didn't on my computer. Just wondering. Anyone is free to scroll right past them. The birds aren't dying in Murray or anywhere else in Kentucky that I know of. How about you?

Areas in worst drought categories rise by 50 percent, US says

The drought ruining crops, shrinking water supplies and exacerbating wildfires intensified dramatically over the last week, U.S. forecasters reported Thursday.

The weekly Drought Monitor shows "widespread intensification" in the central U.S., the National Drought Mitigation Center said in a statement.

Across the contiguous U.S., the total area under all kinds of drought grew only slightly but the most severe categories -- extreme and exceptional -- rose from 13.5 percent to 20.5 percent -- the highest level since 2003.

The jump "this week was the largest since we started the U.S. Drought Monitor" 12 years ago, Brian Fuchs, a climatologist and Drought Monitor author, told NBC News. "This is really showing the rapid intensification of the drought due to the heat/dryness over the region with little relief for anyone."

"We’ve seen tremendous intensification of drought through Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Arkansas, Kansas and Nebraska, and into part of Wyoming and South Dakota in the last week," Fuchs said in the center's statement.

America's ongoing drought disaster is getting worse before it gets better. NBC's Chris Clackum reports.

Every state had at least a small area categorized as "abnormally dry" or worse. "It’s such a broad footprint," Fuchs said.

The Weather Channel noted the jump is the equivalent of adding 219,000 square miles to the worst drought categories -- "an area slightly larger than the states of California and New York combined," it noted.

States posting dramatic increases in just the last week included Illinois, which went from 8 percent in extreme/exceptional drought to 70 percent, and Nebraska, which went from 5 percent to 64 percent.
In Illinois, the drought is impacting water supplies in towns like Pontiac. "The Vermillion River does not have enough flow for us to use it as our primary source of water," one field observer reported Wednesday to the Drought Mitigation Center. "We have had to switch to a secondary source of water, located in a reservoir a few miles outside of town ... A 'dirt' like smell and taste is being noted ... We NEED rain, very soon."

The intensification also means drier soils and deteriorated pastures.

"Over 90 percent of the topsoil was short or very short of moisture in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, with virtually all (99 percent) short or very short in Missouri and Illinois," the monitor stated. "Over 80 percent of the pasture and rangeland was in poor or very poor condition in Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana."

A longer drought index compiled by the U.S. shows this year's drought now covers the most acreage since a dry spell in 1954. Two Dust Bowl years, 1934 and 1939, also had larger drought areas in the Palmer Drought Severity Index, which dates back to 1895 but is not as detailed as the Drought Monitor.

My grandfather was born in 1884 and grandma 1886. I have the fondest memories fighting over who was getting to the Sorghum Cake first. 15 children in all they had, sharecroppers and logsmen. Never owned more than what it took to plant a garden, and canned what it took to live through the winter. He used to cut his grass with a butcher knife(only where it needed it)and was a veterinarian. Dad used to let me ride the mule when he plowed, seemed like 20 ft. up at the time. Most children nowadays will only have fond memories of getting an X-Box or something, but fond memories they will be!

In honor of the Olympics. I know Hemburn and others are excited to see them. Hope they go on without any drama. The preview of the opening ceremony looks great. This is a two page story so I posted some of it and the rest some will go on to read. The rest can just scroll past it. It is a very interesting story.

Six Minutes in Berlin

In 1936, nine American rowers took on the Nazis in front of Hitler and 75,000 screaming Germans. The story of the greatest Olympic race you’ve never heard of.

Sportswriter Grantland Rice called it the "high spot" of the 1936 Olympics. Bill Henry, who called the race for CBS, said it was "the outstanding victory of the Olympic Games." The event they’re describing wasn’t staged in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, and it had nothing to do with Jesse Owens. It took place in the suburb of Grunau, when a group of college kids from the United States took on Germany and Italy in front of Hitler and 75,000 fans screaming for the Third Reich.

Yes, I saw it and commented on how bizarre it seemed that the severity of them seems much higher since yesterday. The numbers were higher on the Richter scale that what has been previously reported. It's still here, as is your latest GodVine post. Topix has been acting weird today, but that happens sometimes...

Commercial break is over, Wilfred is back on. Gotta go for a few, LOL!

Since all my post are still on all the last couple nights to include the earthquake reports let me go ahead and post the one for tonight. They are informative and only considered spam by a few. Maybe because they don't understand the significance of them. That's okay, some of us do.

Volcano Eruption

Japan

A volcano in Sakurajima in southern Japan has erupted, spewing volcanic ash onto Kagoshima City. The eruption at one of Japan's most active volcanoes caused ash to cover roads. Residents of Kagoshima donned face masks to protect themselves while sweeping away the ash. The volcano has erupted over 600 times this year and is expected to continue its intermittent eruptions. Currently, the volcano warning there is at level three out of a possible five levels. A level five would mean that the residents living near the crater would have to be evacuated, while level three warns people not to approach the volcano.

Search: Bizarre 'monster' washes ashore in New York

New York City resident Denise Ginley says she was walking along the East River when she photographed a strange, dead animal under the Brooklyn Bridge. No one has been able to officially identify the bloated beast, prompting many to speculate that it's some kind of bizarre hybrid animal.

See what I meant in my reply earlier today about the seismic activity being stronger, "Abeliever"? Once again it appears that the severity, although the levels aren't massive, the earthquakes are stronger. I wonder if that merely means that there has and is a current shift in the plates, or if there is something looming on the near horizon??

Good night, AB. Sleep well.

I was so excited to finally see a hummingbird yesterday on our homestead. They are SO late arriving here. I was worried that the climate change had either killed them off or they had gone elsewhere. Thankfully I get to enjoy them for another season.

I'm getting old. You never know if you're going to get another 'tomorrow' or not. I appreciate everything that I get to see of Gods blessings on this Earth. City people only know birds as nasty and pesky poop machines for the most part.(Pigeons, etc). They don't get to experience seeing such a mass variety of winged creatures such as we do.

I got the other three feeders out today. Two of which are too far from the windows to see activity.

Uni, you mentioned earlier about your 4 o'clocks and how the hummies are drawn to them. I love 4 o'clocks but they are invasive, so I have to watch where I place them. Around the wood line is where I have things such as that. It keeps the more invasive plants out of my groomed flower beds. Less work for me, and I feel that I'm doing my part by feeding the hummies in another way...

So know what you mean, when I was little , my grandpa would plow the baccor, and I would rid with him. Then years later , I was the one driving it. Yea a sight to see a young girl of 14 driving that tractor. Those days are so few now, that I try to raise my children this way also. I cook on Sunday and everyone is invited to eat , and my children know all about hauling in hay, working the garden and all the things that I grew up doing. Life was so much more then. You kissed each other goodnight , and kissed each other good morning. Until the day we put my grandfather away , he never went a day without tellin my grandma how much he loved her . Their love was one dreams were made of .. Nite to all , hope your loved ones, value you each , for all you are, and never take you for granted...And may you have the love that dreams are made of!!!!
