Good Christmas Eve Morning
The nest at BW, now that the eagle is in it, looks large. Beautiful - Thanks for the alert Mits. From what I read, Chrissy is saying I had best catch up on the previous blog on Nilla(who went to play the slots due to not going to Bingo). lol Yes, Vicky, your tree is still standing & as Christmasy as ever.

Mits said...

Nilla was a party animal last night, Jo, so was Paula, honestly, what are we going to do with these youngins:):):):)?

Belle_WV said...

Good Afternoon (almost) on a Christmas Eve :)

Belle_WV said...

Stopped in to look in on everyone and on the nest - looks like Liberty and Belle have been busy housecleaning, too! Dumb question, but is the live feed working and if so where do you link to it? I only see the 30 sec refresh, which is wonderful to see - hoping the nest owners will pop in for a visit...

Busy day for everyone - hopefully as blessed or more so than the toils and efforts put into the preparations for everyone :) My house is almost to a barely presentable level,so hopefully folks coming to visit aren't expecting perfection ... Merry Christmas to all!

Belle Click on NCTC EAGLE CAM DAILY (upper left of this blog) & go to the home page. On the right click on Video Feed Info. The link is there.

Mits said...

Belle, live-feed shut down yesterday for some reason, so don't think we will see it again til Tuesday.

Nilla said...

To OUR UK GALS ... girls we all wish you a very happy wonderful and safe Christmas... Hugs to Chrissy, Doreen, Lou

Nilla said...

Mits did you get all your shopping finished?

movin said...

HOPE YOU ARE ALL GETTING THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT NOW...

At the urging of a couple of relatives and a CNET review, I am trying the Firefox browser...right now...

The review panned IExplorer7, and Firefox is faster for sure, but I really love the "Full Screen" feature on IE7...I'm much more comfortable with Explorer's layout too. So I might go back soon...it sure is fast though! And it's supposed to have better security features. ???????

Well, don't get run down in the road by dashing reindeer, please. Have a Happy Christmas, All.

Jim

Nilla said...

Merry Christmas To You Jim, Santa's On His way So Be Good!!!!!! Hugs, Nilla

Mits said...

Nilla, is that the red jeep?? Shopping is done, wrapping hubbys' gifts...Hi Jim, what is firefox? Heard of it , don't know what it is?

Santa will be coming soon!

movin said...

I'm back, using Explorer with my much loved "Full Screen" feature this time...

Mits, there are other Internet browsers besides Microsoft's, and one of them is Mozilla "Firefox."

A couple of my relatives (and legions of unrelated peoples) have been telling me how much faster and more secure it is...which is probably true. But I haven't had any security problems with Explorer (I keep it updated regularly), and my AOL browser has as much usable screen left after toolbars as Firefox. That's why I try to get over to Explorer for serious surfing expeditions...the full screen.

I'll probably stay with Explorer ... that way I don't have to buy a new, larger monitor every couple of weeks to cover for added toolbars.

Firefox is a free download, if anyone wants to try it.

I love that new frame on the still camera page here, but the the image, or lens, is still blurred in a couple of vertical bands.

I couldn't get to the video feed at all...is it my machine or is it down?

Merry Christmas,
Jim

Are there feathers of the thing the BW's are eating...like, maybe a dove.

Anonymous said...

I was wondering that too Mits. Looks like feathers to me...but I wasn't thinking from what they are eating...was thinking about them lining the nest...which, they would be good for that too.

I love watching that, Megan. I'm hanging up Christmas cards, then do some laundry, then repair some Christmas items the I want to put out...heating up the hot glue gun. Don't think I will get to set table tonight, want to get to bed and get up early and go to mass, then come home and start cooking. Poor hubby keeps falling asleep, this virus really has its claws in him.

I know everyone is in bed and i am setting here talking to myself but please bear with me as i cant sleep waiting on phone calls and news.. I had my dawn in the hospitol at Christmas when she was 4 years old with akidney problem and surgery...

2:30am daughter called They are taking the baby by ambulance and Carrie was allowed to ride along but in the front... She is going to Childerns Hospitol In Washington DC... daughter has directions and going down in the morning... Thelma is that near you????

Nilla said...

3:30am 1 last message before trying to catch few hours sleep... my daughter said the baby evidently has had this groweth or mass for awhile now.. i knew she was saying she could not turn her head and her throat hurt saturday when i was down there..Daughter told me from what she understands they wont do anything until the doctors know what they are dealing with could even be cancer so please please pray.. As i set here thinking back to this time last Christmas we all were in Fla going to Disney and Aalehia loves Minnie Mouse..

NILLA - HUGE PRAYERS ARE GOING UP FOR YOUR GREAT NIECE. You just never know from one minute to the next what life is going to hand us. (((((((((((((NILLA AND ALLEIAH))))))))))))) on this Christmas morning.

Just want you all to know how grateful I am deep in my soul for my buddies on here.

I am feeling kind of okay today. There may be a complication happening but I am going to call my surgeon in Charlottesville and take it from there. I will be so grateful when all of this is over.

Good Morning and MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday full of family and love( and lots of food, and drink, and...presents.) Keeping Aalehia in my thoughts, Nilla, very scary news about her. They have taken her to a great hospital though, the Doctors will help figure out how to help her, I'm sure. Take care all, and have a wonderful holiday!
