The Hummingbird feeder I got at the Wren's Nest is working miracles! I hung the feeder right outside on the front patio, tucked closely to a big hanging fern so she'd feel protected. I've seen her feasting away twice. Mo told me that this was a great feeder and boy, was he ever right!
Take a peek at the Wren's Nest and see if this feeder would work for you. There are many other neat things to see, too, if feeders aren't for you.

I downloaded a new game from RealArcade for my computer.
Every lesson I've learned has been the hard way and some were quite

We have the sweetest little hummingbird in our yard. I was out watering the other day and she hovered about, keeping an eye on me. As she flitted from branch to branch, the sun would catch the iridescence of her feathers: Her wings became a vivid blue-green and her little head would flash a gorgeous magenta. It was just for a fleeting moment and only when the sun shone directly on her. I thought such a simple thing was such a wondrous gift. I love color and when it comes in small doses with mighty expectations, the brilliance is simply overwhelming.
We had to cut down the last of the trumpet vine that was still in bloom, in order to fix our fence. I ordered a feeder from Mo's "The Wren's Nest," and it arrived today. I quickly cooked up some sugar water for her and hope it will get her through the winter. It's the least I can do to thank her for the joy of her presence in my yard.

Miss Bee - this one's for you!!! I bet they didn't have a swimming pool on board this old lady of the ocean. I have no idea what year this was supposed to be, and I've refused to watch "The Titanic," just on general principles.
I imagine all of the rich and famous dressed to the nines! Can you imagine if FiFi and Foo-Foo had walked into the dining room with the bicycle pants and comb-over???
I only have two packages to ship - I'm so fortunate my family lives close by!

Mo has a special on shipping, and he always ships things out immediately so there's never a long wait. I have purchased a few beautiful items and have been delighted with them!
Find that special item for that hard-to-buy for someone...you won't be disappointed!

Here we go again; yet another grade school student suspended for "hate speech." His crime? He used the term "brown people" while having a conflict with another student. The nine year old was suspended for three days.

After writing my MM post, I got to wondering about the actual receipe so I went online to find one similar to hers. Like I said, hers were maroon or deep pink. I don't know if she added food coloring or not. A note to all of us: While our relatives are still living, ask them these things. It's impossible to replicate otherwise. Wish I'd thought ahead.
1 quart brandy
1 x sugar ( looked up the "x" and couldn't find an equivelent, but another online recipe shows

Gee, I don't think I've ever had brandied peaches except for hers! Anyway, they were to die

Actually heard this on the news - a group of women are wanting Santa Claus to stop saying, "Ho, Ho, Ho," because it demeans women! Can you believe this???!!!??? They want the rotund, jolly man to say, "Ha, Ha, Ha." The word "Ho" sounds like, what....whore? I think not unless you're incapable of proper speech. If people would pronouce words correctly this wouldn't have even crossed some little pinhead's mind... Stop the world! I want off!!!!!!!
(And in case anyone thinks this is racially based, it isn't - people of all races are speaking this way!)

I know I certainly have said things that didn't make me look like a mental giant, but fortunately for me, it didn't happen in a court of law!!! I laughed at all of these but I think numbers 10 and 11 are my personal favorites. I hope you enjoy them, too. (I'm pulling out what little hair I have left and apologize if these are not lined up correctly. I've have gone out and come back in four times and frankly, I'm pooped! I hope this time it'll be okay...sorry if not. Yes, I know, I'm anal.)
7.) Q: "Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition
10.) Q: "Do you recall the time that you examined the body?"
13.) Q. "Were you acquainted with the deceased?"

"To Gracie of Echoes of Grace because she has had one heck of a rough summer but with perseverance, inner strength, and faith she has overcome the obstacles that were in front of her and still stands tall. She is a true super hero in my book!
What kind words!!! And I feel horrible because I just realized that I had stored this as a draft, along with Desert Songbird's Community award and then neglected to post them. I cannot believe I did this! Please accept my apologies, Linda...This does mean a lot to me, as do you, my friend.
