Hello, folks. Had a very busy weekend .....sleeping. LOL. All that talk of ham hocks, hambone and beans has made me hungry. I can't have that stuff in the house because I wouldn't stop eating until it was gone, and with it, my fledgling diet. Hope everyone is well. I've got to catch up on the posts, will be back later.

Heck, you can call me if you want. LOL I do get a little bit stranger as the night wears on. Occasionally, I will get a call from one of my insomniac friends who knows my schedule. I never sleep through a night, haven't for the last several years. I just doze/sleep lightly, wake up and do something, then go back to bed for another night nap. When I was young, I could sleep like the dead, but as I get a little older (mind you, I didn't say old), sleep eludes me. Perhaps in my waning years, I try try to get in as much waking time as possible, because I know my years are growing short. Who knows. Sometimes, I believe that I do my best thinking in the deepest part of the night, just before the roosters crow to announce impending dawn.

Hazardous weather outlook issued for Louisville, snow possible by mid week

Two storm systems are expected to move through Louisville starting Monday which could bring as much as two inches of snow by Wednesday, the National Weather Service said.

The weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook Sunday for south-central Indiana and central Kentucky warning that the first storm system will likely hit the area late Monday with a mixture of rain and sleet. The high Monday is forecast to be about 43 degrees.

The second storm system will move through Louisville Tuesday night and will be accompanied by much colder air, the weather service said. Light to moderate snow is forecast with accumulations of between one and two inches by Wednesday morning.

The remainder of the week is expected to be clear with highs moving from the mid 40s Thursday to the low 60s by Saturday.

Those beans and hamhocks sound good. Might just plan on having some navy beans, hamhocks, iron skillet cornbread, and green onions. Maybe a chili day. Glad I don't really have to go anywhere if I don't want to. Usually on those days...I don't want to. lol

Seen the China earthquake in the news:

SW China Quake Destroys 700 Homes, Injures 30
A moderate earthquake struck southwest China on Sunday, causing hundreds of homes to collapse and injuring at least 30 people.

The earthquake bureau in Yunnan province, where the quake occurred, said three of the injured people were in serious condition.

In this photo released by China's Xinhua News... View Full Caption

The official Xinhua News Agency said the quake damaged 2,500 houses and caused 700 others to collapse.

About 55,000 people were affected by the quake, Xinhua said, citing Yunnan's Civil Affairs Department. Supplies were on their way to the quake-hit area, including 6,000 tents.

The magnitude-5.5 quake struck 51 kilometers (32 miles) from the city of Dali at a depth of 33 kilometers (20 miles), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

About 34 aftershocks were recorded after the quake, Xinhua said.

That bad wreck made national news south of Elizabethtown (in betty's neck of the woods) and then the stories keep coming. Sad that family died when hit by the semi. I hope Blue, betty's hubby and any other truckers we know weren't involved or held up by that wreck. Wonder if that is where betty was saying is too curvy and if it is where they have had many wrecks.

Breaking: Country music star Kellie Pickler's drummer involved in serious I-65 accident

Breaking Entertainment News: The411withSherleneShanklin: I have been working on this story all morning long and now I can confirm that the drummer for country music star Kellie Pickler was involved in a serious accident in Kentucky.

The crash happened Saturday morning around 11:30 a.m. on the southbound side of Interstate 65 approximately three miles south of Glendale, KY.

Drummer Gregg Lohman was involved in a four vehicle crash injuring three people. I spoke with University of Louisville Hospital spokesman David McArthur and he confirms that they have a Gregg Lohman in their hospital and he's in serious condition. They could not confirm anything else with me at this time. We have been working with our sister station in Nashville and they have received confirmation from a close friend of Lohman that he was involved in the crash.

Lohman's accident is not the only accident that happened in that area on Saturday. Police say six members from Wisconsin family were killed and two injured when their SUV was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer. According to police, the first accident happened shortly after 11 A.M. Saturday morning in the northbound lanes of I-65 at the 83 mile marker. Police say the Wisconsin family in the SUV was from Marion, Wisconsin. They are identified as 62-year-old James Gollnow and his wife Barbara, 92-year-old Marion Champnise, 18-year-old Sarina Gollnow, 8-year-old Soledad Smith and 10-year-old Gabriel Zumiga. According to police, Soledad and Gabriel were foster children. The two survivors were also foster children. Police identified them as Hope Hoth, 15, and Aidian Ejnik, 12.

SKY11 was overhead both accidents Saturday. Click here for images.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Norman Chaffins says despite snow flurries, weather was not a factor in either crash. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured and was cooperating with police, Chaffins said. He was not identified. "He's obviously pretty torn up about everything," he said.

The southbound crash involved a tractor-trailer and three other vehicles and Chaffins said police were investigating whether rubbernecking was the cause.

I sleep really good for 4 hours, then wake up and drink coffee and do things for a couple hours then sleep a couple more hours and it does not matter whether it is night or day. Good thing I am retired and have no schedules to keep.

Those geese can be very mean, more so than the domestic variety. There was almost always a flock of Canadian Geese on the track when we raced our horses at Foxboro. They would sometimes interfere with the race, sometimes causing horses to go off-pace or they would get in the way when horses were coming down the stretch. I was always worried that they would cause an accident, but the geese always managed to move in the nick of time. Who knows, maybe they wanted to be official race timers.

My computer is running as slow as molasses, and I need to call back my friend who is in personal crisis.(please continue to say a pray for her; she is a really kind-hearted soul). Hope my computer does better tomorrow. It's been two days since the slow-down began, taking forever to load. I'm very frustrated with it. I wish I had AW's patience, but after having lightning-fast downloading, I am really aggravated with this thing. If anyone has ideas how I could fix this, please comment. And, no, I don't use PC matic.com . That's the biggest ripoff I've ever seen. So , goodnight, folks, pleasant dreams. Lord willing, I will talk to everyone tomorrow.

Hello Ancient Wolf, lala, and so true. I hope you have a restful/peaceful night. I read this story and thought about our Native American stories we had going early on in the thread when the birds were no longer dropping dead. I loved those legends. I seen a Cardinal today in my front yard so I feel priviledged as I am every time I see them. Beautiful Kentucky State Bird. The only Cardinals that I like. lol

Great Spirit sent me to this beautiful story first thing this morning, it has a powerful message for everyone! Enjoy!

LEGEND OF THE RED FEATHER
BY MAREN MILLER -“PAINT THE SKY”
CREE TRIBE

Many moons ago there was a mighty Indian tribe. The tribe was led by a wise chief who made sure the members of the tribe were well fed, kind, generous, and respectful of nature. The chief had a young son and daughter who were wise and kind, like their father.

The tribe had a special award that it gave to young braves. It was called simply the “Red Feather”. The Red Feather represented spirit and character. It was given to those braves who lived by a moral code and set a good example for others by being courteous, respectful, considerate, and friendly.

One day the chief’s son was awarded the Red Feather for a special act of kindness to the tribe. The chief’s daughter asked when she might receive a Red Feather too. The chief laughed. The Red Feather, he explained, was only for braves of the tribe. No princess had ever received the Red Feather. The princess felt this was very unfair.

One winter, there was a terrible sickness that spread through the tribe. Everyone was very, very ill except the chief’s daughter who, for some reason, had not become sick. While she was tending to her father, he explained to her that none of the braves were well enough to search for a special plant that contained medicine that could make the tribe well. It was up to her to find the plant and bring it back to the tribe. She was their only hope.

The princess set off into the cold, dark woods to find the plant. She walked miles and miles, through deep snow and freezing wind. She saw spooky eyes in the trees and heard the howling of coyotes all around her. She was often scared and hungry, but she knew she must go on. She must find the special plant to help her tribe.

With the help of the Great Spirit and her willingness to sacrifice for others, she found the plant hidden deep in the woods and brought it back to her father the chief. Thanks to her bravery and sacrifice, the tribe was able to make the needed medicine and everyone was cured. When she awoke the next morning she found a large red feather painted on her tee pee and was given a special Red Feather to wear in her hair. She was the first princess to ever receive such an honor.

Her father gathered all of the tribe around her and said,“We have been foolish to only award the Red Feather to braves. My princess has taught us all that character, spirit and sacrifice are qualities found in all of us, not just braves.

From this day forward the Red Feather will be given to any brave or princess who demonstrates these qualities.”

And that is the Legend of the Red Feather. Ya-Ta-Hay!

May Great Spirit bring Red Feathers to all of you today as you walk your path as kind, generous, and respectful of nature and others! Aho!

Love this story.

Have a good night everyone!

That's been my sleep pattern for most of my life. You just learn to work with it and make it work for you. I like my middle of the night awake times now.
