Howls it goin Wolf? And Everyone else... It appears global warming has reversed this winter. Im not sure about the rest of the country but our neck of the woods seems to have had a pretty normal winter, temperature wise any way.

Quite a departure from last winter when we were enjoying most beautiful weather from about this time on. And now snow on the ground in March. I'll never forget the freak heat wave of last June and July though.

Have a good day Everyone. I just wanted to post somethin before I got out of here.

Well, goodness it's still snowing...If it was colder, we'd be in real trouble. But, only about half an inch of slushy snow.

Good Morning Blueminer and everyone else. I went back for some more sleep and woke up to a phone call. It was nice to hear the phone ringing again even if it was a telemarketer. hahaha

It has been either internet or phone, but not both for 3 days now. I guess they finally got things fixed.

Just got back from Hardee's this morning, and saw about 100 dead birds on Hamilton field on 18th street. What's causing all the bird deaths?

When you pro-rate the 10% on that bill,be sure and add an " inconvience " charge on there too !

Dang it. I must have a sinkhole under my computer. I almost finished typing a lengthy message that suddenly went poof, and I couldn't even recreate it through 'history.' Oh well, I'll try again, but make it shorter.
Sinkholes are all over the place in states that have limestone rock, which is very porous and dissolves when water runs through the little pockets in the rock. Eventually, the water table drops and 'voila' you have a cavern underground, with a thin layer of what appears to be solid ground on top. As the cavern gets bigger, your house sits on more and more unstable ground, until one morning, you wake up with your house in a hole. Hopefully, you are out of the house when this happens. That poor man in Florida fell into the hole, with the remains of his bedroom on top of him. The problem is not only in Florida, but in many states that have limestone as an underlayment rock. Oh yeah, and Kentucky is one of those state.
Now in New England, from where I hale, there isn't a problem with limestone. Oh no, they have solid GRANITE, which comes in pretty pink or blue hues. But those residents have their own problem. Their houses sit on pockets of RADON gas, which is very toxic and can seep into a house. So, I guess it is 'pick your poison.' You can fall into a hole and maybe go straight to hell, or you become sick with radon poisoning. Mother nature gets back at us in very devious ways.

@Hmmmmmm. We are a motley crew here on the bird thread, and we WELCOME new arrivals to this thread. I personally hate "clicks" and would not remain on a thread for over two years if the folks here were like that. Please return and offer your gems of wisdom. As I always say, "The more the merrier." I'd welcome you with open arms, but unfortunately, our fingers are too busy tapping keyboards. Tap a few keys yourself and come on and join us. We talk about anything here, and our 'conversations' ebb and flow like the tides.

I tried that once, when we had only intermittent service for a whole month. It does not work. They would just as soon disconnect you permanently rather than pro rate a bill.

I hate when my computer does that. Sometimes it's when I am doing an email and suddenly my computer loses its mind AND my email.

What kind of horses do you have. I used to race standardbreds in the Northeast, but have been out of the business for some time now. Then I had two very fine Tennessee Walkers, but they both were too much horse for me so I had to sell them. I have a gorgeous buckskin mare of unknown heritage, but she's sweet and sensible. I plan to have her trained in the spring. And last but not least is my grandson's Welch pony. He's up in his years, but he still moves gracefully.

Those Tennessee Walkers are smooth gaited, aren't they. I hated to sell mine, but they went to a very good home and get the work that they needed. I'm not supposed to be riding because of a medical condition, but I will if I find a gentle, kid broke horse. I think that my mare will fit the bill. I will have her trained this spring. She is very sensible and not shy about new things. I just had to put down a dear old horse. We used to race him when he was young, and to make a long story short, I found him in Vermont and brought him to my farm in KY. He had 9 easy years here, with full retirement and all the hay he could eat. He was 27 years old when his painful arthritis got the best of him, and medication did not alleviate his pain. Our vet euthanized him and he is buried on the farm.

Sorry for your loss. Its easy to get attached to them. I did'nt pick mine, they picked ME ! Losing an animal is the same as losing a loved one. really make me sick to see the horses on news that have been starved and abbused. the owners should face the same retribiution as if it were humans. I sure do enjoy mine, they're my buddies ! A little on the spoiled side , but they mind pretty good so I let'm have a LITTLE fun ! ha!ha!

Oh, I babied mine. The standardbred racehorse that I recently put down was my baby. Even in his racing days, I would go into his stall. He would lie down and put his head in my lap. I owned him for 25 of his 27 years. He loved to race, but off the track, he was the biggest baby. Trainers told me that I would spoil that horse for racing, and don't be fussing over him. Well, it didn't interfere at all, and I think it made a better horse out of him. On the track,he was all business and had more share of wins. He rarely finished back of third place. When I took him off the track at 9 years, I retired him to my farm in Ma., but he had no company and he was still able to be used as a riding horse or cart horse. I donated him to a Racehorse retirement facility, and he was loaned out to others. When I moved to KY, I tracked him down through that farm and brought him home here.
I still grieve for his loss. He was like a child to me, and when you have an animal that long a time, it's so hard to let go. The vet said that I was doing the right thing, but I still question myself. Our worry was that he might lie down one day, and not be able to get up. And finding a vet on a quick notice is not easy. I did not want the scenario of him down and thrashing in a panic, not being able to get up. And that's why the vet an I decided to euthanize him. Have fun with your babies and spoil them all you can. Horses are such majestic creatures.
