    My women couldn't get out for Halloween as she usually does because of her back. She's often in debilitating pain.

    So...I went to the store and bought her a bag of candies and chips and chocolate. Brought it home and placed it near her head so when she woke up that is what she saw first. She was so happy.

    It's the little things folks...
    Forget about it

    A treasure among the dross for the Great Blue Heron. Worth the effort in the end for this beautiful, graceful, patience Being.

    Great Blue Heron Gets More Than It Bargained For (1:47 minutes)


    Cam Filled With Visitors On Sunny Afternoon in NY (1:04 minutes)

    It's a sunny afternoon in Sapsucker Woods, and our woodland residents are flocking to the Cornell Feeders for a snack. Enjoy the vibrant colors and serene scene.

    Watch LIVE at http://AllAboutBirds.org/CornellFeeders for news, updates, and more information about the pond and its surroundings.

    This FeederWatch cam is located in the Treman Bird Feeding Garden at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Perched on the edge of both Sapsucker Woods and its 10-acre pond, these feeders attract both forest species like chickadees and woodpeckers as well as some species that prefer open environments near water like Red-winged Blackbirds.

    Rogue, do NOT have a mental crisis over that. You are getting some help, food-wise, from a resource that provides it.

    Back in my wandering, younger days, I also used some of those resources. I am glad it's helping you. I would have missed you here if you had starved to death.

    Be thankful. You need to stay strong. You're needed here and these are trying times. We all need to keep our strength up.

    I just spent the last few days replacing some outside door casing. I had never done this before and it came out beautiful. Just sussing the situation took a lot of thoughtfulness. And then came the choosing of wood, measuring, cutting, painting, nailing, screwing.

    I didn't read any books or watch any videos. I just figured it out. Seems minor to some, but I am damn proud of it. It was really hard work and I am tired in a good way.

    I just had to tell someone.

    I know it's stupid but that is one of the proudest accomplishments of my life so far. And I have done a lot of stuff in my life. Big, big grin. I'd drink some brandy if I had some.

    Ya'll are the best!

    I'm done bragging but this smile won't leave my face. Good on me.

    Isn't it strange how hard it is to talk about accomplishments without the worry that it comes across as a brag? I'm with you, Valerie. It's a MAJOR accomplishment. There's a small percentage of people that can do what you did.

    A brandy for you and one for me.
    Clink-clink for your awesome accomplishment.

    Rogue, I've volunteered in a Foodbank. Most of the people there are volunteers and we are there for the same reason: Our Earth produces an abundance of food and everyone should have it! Unfortunately , we live in such a messed up world where everyone is supposed to have green pieces of paper (a.k.a. "money") so that food isn't available to everyone, even though there is plenty to go around. There are strange rules about the green pieces of paper that insure some people have a lot more than others.

    All those people who volunteered, you are making them very happy by coming to the food bank to get what you need! They are relieved to know that you are there, instead of in a place where you aren't getting enough to eat.


    You can always tell the volunteers how much you appreciate them and if you have the time or inclination, you can always ask if you can help too - perhaps they need more volunteers - it is a way of showing gratitude and returning the favor.

    First Snowfall Brings Birds To Cornell Feeders (3:25 minutes)
    The snow has started to fall in Sapsucker Woods, NY, and the forest residents are lining up for a quick meal at the Cornell Lab FeederWatch cam. Blue Jays, Mourning Doves, and Red-winged Blackbirds round out the list of visitors this morning.

    Have a restful weekend, Everyone.

    Wow, thanks so much for this Paula. I once lived up in Ithaca and somehow never got to Sapsucker Woods or even figured out exactly where it is. (That's not Beebe Lake in the background is it?). Nice to be able to watch this.

    You're welcome, Krystian.

    The site helps me stay connected to Foxie Loxie. Weíre in contact but it gives me a better idea of her surroundings in real time. Iíve book marked the live cam and run it often. (push play) As of this post, there are 700+ watching.

    This is whatís posted in the summary:

    Chris, I donít know what caused it but I know how to fix it. Toss magic beans at your computer and water. Careful.... not too many beans and not too much water or youíll have a whole new set of problems.


    Kidding aside, my email went wonky a couple of days this week. And the internet is slowwww. This morning, I had to change the batteries for two things. Both registered low and wouldn't work.



    P.S. signing off...
