Good morning bird threaders. Guess you know what I did after that bubble bath...straight to bed. I hope you all have a great day saying goodbye to 2012. I will be happy to do that this year. I hope we all have a good 2013.

Enjoy the last day of the year!!!

censoring dissent is worse, especially when the dissent is an honest and truthful comment. This is what the first amendment is supposed to protect.
People seem to forget that Topix is owned by a person or persons. It is not public property therefore Topix owners can censor any way they please. If I was the owner of Topix it would be censored harder than it is. People would not be allowed to bully people like they do annonymously and get by with it. This is the only thread I have seen censored so well. I wish they all were.

Well we definitely have a different understanding of the bible. No doubt there are those who see a pre-tribulation rapture, a mid-tribulation rapture, no rapture and all inbetween. I understand a pre-tribulation rapture from reading the bible.
As far as "accepting Christ," the Holy Spirit is the one who does the convicting of the heart showing the person their need for the Savior Jesus Christ. Once the Holy Spirit shows the person this need by conviction within the heart, it is up to the individual person to ACCEPT what Jesus did in paying their sin debt or not. The bible states that it is God's will that all be saved but it is up to the individual to ACCEPT Christ or REFUSE Christ.
The only thing necessary for a person to be saved is the working of the Holy Spirit within the heart or Jesus Christ Himself to show up and tell the person the truth. I personally know of cases of people Where do you get that the tribulation lasts 7 years. being saved where there is no church present and no Gospel going out. It is happening every single day in hard-line closed countries. Jesus is appearing to people in spirit form and spreading the Gospel Himself. That is also how people will be saved after all believers are raptured; by the Holy Spirit and by Jesus Christ Himself. People are not needed but of course once some are born again they will also spread the Gospel - such as the 144,000.
The bible also tells of the 1,000 year reign of Christ on the earth, beginning after the 7 year tribulation period.
As far as my "goodie box(es)," IF not a one of them is found and used - I did not lose one single thing in leaving it behind. IF one "goodie box" is found - one person and possibly many more will have the chance to know what is going on and what to do about it. That's good enough for me.
Where do you get that the tribulation will last 7 years, It ain't in the bible.

Yep. I keep a 60 watt bulb dangling down over the chicken's water and it is working well at 22. I don't know what will happen at lower temps or if the electric goes out. I guess I could put the chickens in the spare bedroom. LOL

Yet another sleepless night, fourth in a row and I'm begining to drag. I've never slept more than three hours a night but seems as I get older my body has changed and it's not enough anymore but sleep still avoids me. Oh well I'll shut down eventually. Ya'll have a good morning.

It has become a personal chat about kids, weather, etc. that has nothing at all to do with dead birds. NEW THREAD PLEASE. Let's put this one to rest....
You go first. Start a new one in Burlington Iowa and we will all come there.

Hey Gina, you can just scroll on by or ignore it like we do the 3 RandPaul sites that are clearly not on subject either.(Did you go tell them the same thing?) Why don't you go start a NEW thread as this one is still going strong and your post was #80191. Missing posts were removed by mods. We will continue to chat about whatever we want and if you don't want to join in, oh well, move on. We are glad the birds are not dropping dead anymore and this thread has not died either. One poster (lala or Peace, I think) posted this way back when people like you piped in their displeasure with this thread...

They died, and we are using this thread:

1) in remembrance of the lost life force of our avian brothers and sisters, and
2) to keep the eternal flame alive.
3) Did you know that some legends say that birds were once thought of as Messengers who carried prayers to God/Creator/Great Mystery, since birds can get closer to That Great Mystery than any other animal?

Here's a thread, where you can light a virtual candle, in memory of our fallen Messenger comrades:

No thanks are expected or necessary, friend.

Have a Happy New Year in some other thread. Thanks

Good one Ancient Wolf. I hope your son makes it down to see you before the "winter weather advisory" 10 am today until 1pm tomorrow for Indiana and the Louisville area kicks in. Hopefully it will stay across the river so people will be safer travelling around celebrating the New Year tonight. I WON'T be one of them. I am still sick and will wrap up in my mink blanket cuddled in the corner of my couch and watch it on TV. Ugh, going to miss some good food, fun, friends and family tonight. Oh well, won't be the first time. I just hope everyone is safe out there.

You and dog stay warm and enjoy the day. Every day's a gift. Hope the New Year is a better one.

Oh no, I didn't know Grant Jeffrey had died. To me he was one of the great End Times teachers. Many of his teachings are on YouTube and he has written many books.
I like what this guy (Paul Begley) has to say about the study of End Times Prophecy: http://m.youtube.com/#/watch...

Hitler was a hypochondriac, some of his daily meds included; cocaine, injected amphetamines, glucose, testosterone, estradiol, and corticosteroids. In addition, he was given a preparation made from a gun cleaner, a compound of strychnine and atropine, an extract of seminal vesicles, and numerous vitamins and 'tonics'. It seems possible that some of Hitler's behaviour, illnesses and suffering can be attributed to his medical care. The strychnine was to help his extreme flatulence. His breath was reported to be absolutly aweful,,, master race member, lol.
Did you know that corticosteroids can trigger a psychotic episode in sensitive individuals? It's called steroid psychosis. The first time I saw this was when a person who had severe pulmonary problems was given steroid injections in an attempt to save her life. She went from a perfectly normal person to a stark, raving mad lunatic. She began to physically attack medical staff, including the neurologist, who was hit over the head with her television remote device. Maybe chronic use of steroids contributed to Hitler's psych. problems.

Good morning,everyone. It's cold here in Lebanon, but we had only a dusting of snow. It's still too much like winter, though. I am definitely a spring and summer person.

Hello, AW. I just hope that bulb does not drop down into the water, or your chickens will turn into fryers LOL. Do you have any chicken coops for your birds? You sound very handy, and it would take little cost to build one. When I was up north, we took "Frisky" our very very old chicken into the cellar when we had extremely frigid or snowy weather. The kids kept her as a pet when they were growing up. She sure did enjoy her little apartment in the cellar,and I think that she looked forward to inclement weather so that she could come in.(Unfortunately I had to clean up after her each day).

I sympathize with you. I get about 3-4 hours a night, plus an afternoon nap of about an hour. Lately, I haven't been able to get even that, and I drag around all day. It is not a pleasant feeling to feel sleep-deprived.

I don't think the weather is going to stop him, but the stomach virus might. I am not going to hope for a better year, this past year was good enough. I maintained my health and dog and I had plenty to eat (even though it was not always the greatest) and most all my close friends and family made it through and those that did not have made it to a better place. I am blessed to not have had years similar to 2004, 2005 and 2009.

Good morning members of the "Dead Bird Society". It was very interesting to catch up this morning. I just finished reading back through where I left off yesterday. What insight some of you have! I loved all of your opinions. And the Hitler material? Remarkable. Things I'd never considered that could have contributed to his insanity! Well done, bird people, well done!! I'm sitting here wanting to read more about that particular subject now! Like a good book that you can't put down!

By the way, I got that delivery made yesterday. It was even more enjoyable than I'd imagined.. Nice to make someone smile. I don't know who felt better, him or me. His dear wife made us all some snacks for the visit, and we had a wonderful time talking.

Life is good...

I hope this thread stays on track today again. How amazing it was to read all of these tidbits of info, and right here in one place. Outstanding and very thought provoking....

Why should it bother you??? Eventually we will get around to talking about birds....we always do. The fact that this thread has almost 68,000 comments suggests that most posters find something of interest here. If this thread upsets you, why don't you start a different one???? Some people find the smallest things to be disgruntled about.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
