The birds are scrounging, you say?? The sparrows are still about in these parts... it's been too warm for them to leave quite yet.

Hello NM...you are always welcome, make yourself at home!
That's such a sweet little doggie, is she a Chihuahua (sp)
lovely expression.
Yes she is and I am madly in love with her.

I've already made my daughters aware that they are now second, third, and fourth in line. Lol. J/k.

I do love her though. She is so visibly appreciative of everyone and everything.

She is a 3 pounder that enjoys cat toys.

I appreciate how welcome you make me feel.

Do you have any pets that you are head over heels for?

You will love those eggs, they are from Brown Burford hens, I won't have any others. Will you rustle up an omelette for
our Flower please while you are at it! Enjoy....:)

Hi Flower...waving from the doorway, just bringing in some logs for the fire. <3

It is important to feed the birds at this time of the year
particularly Grace, good for you for looking after these ones.
Sadly the seagulls do that, I was throwing bread for them at
the place we have a picnic when we go to the cinema, a lady
came up to let me know 1) it is against the law to feed them
(I thought that was a bit ridic) until she told me that one had killed a little Yorkshire Terrier the previous week.....
They do prevent any other birds getting the food, but I can't resist their funny little chicks, slip them something when nobody is looking.
I am feeding the garden birds, today has been sheer hell (lol) as I had to keep the cats in, and Rosie is a nightmare on four legs if she isn't allowed her own way...it has just gone dark, the little s...darling has just had her tea and I opened the door, out she went. Heaven.
I am getting a pair of Blackbirds visit, I give them mixed fruit I got for the Christmas Cake I haven't yet made...bits of chicken, moistened bread and butter....a Nuthatch is a daily visitor and masses of blue tits, coal tits...hang on, not seen any sparrows at all. They are on the decline apparently.

She's adorable...I thought she was a 'she'...how old is she?
I can see she has a lovely personality and nature in her little
face.
The last dog I had was a tiny Yorkie weighing in at five pounds.
She was an adult when we rescued her from a breeder, and older than we were told she was. She brought us a lot of joy.
Just cats now, our eldest is 16 yrs. 4 months, he is a British Shorthair Silver Tabby, his best pal is Ginger Bailey, aged 15, we brought him home from the shelter where we used to help out, 14 and half years ago.
The baby of the cat family is Rosie Probert, she is a blue and cream tortie, with white socks, she is very knowing at two and half years of age.
My grandaughter said 'you love the cats more than us'...that is nonsense of course!
Glad you joined us NM...:)

Lady Eleanor...
Reading through the page it seems Your day has been a good one so far and I hope that the remainder will be even better..
I have been steadly trying to get ready for Christmas, seems I'm lacking the spirit...
Having had the year I've had makes it really difficult to be cheerful.. I am blessed though and I know it... While so many have little or nothing.. I sit in a comfortable chair, able to use a computer and having more than enough food to eat... I am warm and dry and I have a warm clothing... So yes I do and will continue to count my little blessings and to try my best to accept the things I can not change...
Sending You and Yours my Warmest Wishes...

LADY EL..MADAME GRACIE...
AND THE GOOD PEOPLE OF THE REALM...

hope that prosecution ... is forth coming so sad why is someone's fun is another pain..

A nurse at the hospital that was duped by a prank call from two Australian radio DJs concerning Prince William's pregnant wife, Catherine, has apparently committed suicide, the hospital confirmed Friday.

The nurse "was recently the victim of a hoax call," King Edward VII Hospital said in a media statement.

The DJs impersonated Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles in the prank call, in which some details of the Duchess of Cambridge's condition and care were given.

Lovely to have you here for breakfast! I think Monday I'll pop in early to make drop biscuits and sausage gravy. I'll have to bring in some Jimmy Dean's sausage for that...

Hello Dear Rose, so nice to see you, I think of you often.
I think of you when I look out of my kitchen window and see
just the one David Austen fragrant climbing rose feverishly
clingling to Summer refusing to be bowed down by the Winter chill!
How many of us would care to admit that we have not got the Christmas spirit? I wonder. We try so hard, and at times I think we are 'going through the motions'...
well, I am about to turn this around, and NOW. Let's put some festive decs up in our cyber kitchen, got some pretty icicles for round the window and glittery snowflakes for the mirrors and on the windows, nice holly wreath for the door....voila...it's beginning to feel like Christmas.!...:)
Seriously Rose, it will come, the true meaning that is, nearer the day.
Always remember, Somebody loves you.
Have a happy afternoon and evening my friend.
Elxx

It's incredibly sad, a mother of two, a highly regarded nurse.
She was not rebuked by her employers and was given all the support after she was taken in by the pranksters. They must feel particularly bad about the whole thing, when after all, it was just a joke which misfired.
It is bound to have some impact on the Royal couple.
I cannot percieve what must have been going through this nurse's mind that she should take her own life.

I found it fascinating, I don't mind telling you. I wish more would be so forthcoming.
Incidentally, I knew Trenton, NJ very well, I lived in Rahway prior to moving to NYC.
Something else in common, weekends and holidays I helped on a farm, as a teen I milked cows by hand. Since coming to Wales this city girl as I fancied myself, lol, helped my neighbour, a reclusive farmer, deliver a Welsh Black calf, treat his sheep's feet, milk goats and keep hens. A country gal....:)
A firm believer in adapting to my surroundings.
When one of his calves was stillborn, I travelled 50 miles to buy a Charolais cross calf and bring her back in my car to the farm to be put to his Welsh Black bereaved cow, Kathy. Otherwise she would have gone to market.
My farming experiences in a nutshell...

My word! A country gal indeed, and a Isolde Farnon to boot!(I couldn't very well call you Siegfried or Tristan now could I ?!)

Charolais is quite a popular and prized breed here, and has been for quite some time. Angus is another. Herefords are fairly kept too. And dairy breeds Guernsey, Holtein, Jersey as well for some farms. Helped my cousins milk cows, feed chickens, and probably more feather plucking, etc. a few times.

One experience with swine: helped my father-in-law and vet holding 45-ish pound young male pigs up by their back legs to facilitate losing vital reproductive parts. Good part of an afternoon caused my ears and muscles to hurt. But, I had all my parts.
Also for him, I helped some with field prep via tractor pulled gang-disc prior to planting.
