Hello Steve Happy Nesters We Will Be!
My live cam came up without any problem (except the statoc lines which are going to disappear per Steve)My eagle came 30 sec refresh has the correct date & time & through the lines I can see the MT nest. YEPPER! We're getting thereBlackWater's cam looks a little better also.
Thanks Steve! Hello Jo!
Both cams looking pretty fuzzy/lines to me right now at 5:25 pm.
Help..I'm stuttering, and my wreath is missing! blogger grinch at it again!
Oh Megan! Vicky lost her tree for awhile last night. I just know your wreath will return & that your stuttering will cease to be. Cold boot may do it BUT since you are in I would stay even if I did stutter.For me, both cams have static lines, Paula. That's what they will be working on & once they disappear - then we'll be happy.
Can you make out anything at all, Jo? I can't, static lines are too colored.
On the 30 sec cam I could see the outline of the nest & tree when I put it up at 5:00 - but not anymore can I see it. Just the lines. Both of them are just static colored lines.
Remember that Buta Buta get's her official name tomorrow 10 am She took her first steps today during her exam. Panda Cam site has a very short video but ajc.com 's home page has on the left side a link for their longer video.
WHAT HAPPENED---We only had 12 on the last thread---now another thread is up & we have 12 on it----I GOT LOST---That's OK---I stay lost----ho! ho!
Girls, there's a cyber thief in this place!
It's the GRINCH!!!
Get that Grinch Floralgirl, wrap a wreath around his neck!
Well, I'm glad I'm back and I have Glo's wet noodle and I'm in the mood to smack the Grinch cross the side of the head.....
I was all excited to read the new info, then I went to the cams and, well, what can I say?????
Let's "smack the grinch" like we do that penquin!
Hi Mits! Everything ok with you?
I love watching the penquin get smacked, so far, so good Vicky.
I am not saying that over and over...knock it off GRINCH!!! that is not funny!
Yes smacking the penquin is great stress relief! BUT ADDICTING!
I'm back. Megan, you are not stuttering anymore! lolI was doing some online banking - I am so high tech.... I'm also afraid I'll make a mistake and overdraw my account...
I'm sorry - didn't mean to keep this from all of you!I am a very proud Army GrandmaBoth of my grandsons have received their Sergeant stripes! I am very happy to have such dedicated soldiers.Funny story on Ryan's: Hearing review you could score 150 - Ryan got 149. I asked his mom what it was and she said he was so excited at passing the review that he forgot to salute before leaving.
Evening my eagle friends.Sorry late getting in here.Wow you got to see the cam "live"....neat-o..Things are improving slowly, step by step.Got it Mema Jo you got a rider. Floralgirl Sorry that mean old grinch stole your wreath. He only keeps things for awhile then gives the finally at some point back. Right Vicky?
Oh Mema Jo, please express to your Army Grandsons how proud I am of them also!! Absolutely something to be VERY proud of! AND thank them for being willing to serve our nation!
Yes I think I hold the record for the times he has stole my trees!
Mema Jo add me in there also with what Vicky said.
Hi there Dana, good to see you in here, hope you are feeling better as you have a big wing ding to attend this Saturday! Did you tell Ed, "sycamore tree by day, Christmas lights at night"?
Well Congrats grandmas Mema Jo That is a great story about Ryan LOL too. The wet noodle Go for it Mits...What a pain int he katushka LOL...I can't spell it but I got a pain there for sure. Gr-r-r-r-r
Jim continuies to be stable...we are 2 days post Op...I think that could be good news the hopefully they did get all the infection. has some bone and muscle stuff to heal, and that stomach biopsy report still is not back, but I think there is a sense of encouragement coming over us atleast about the infection side of all of this.
GOD BLESS THE NEW ARMY SERGANTS! :):):):)
Going to do my homework for tomorrow...BBL.
Hi Glo! Keep the faith! Mits, I don't think I've gotten use to you being a student!! Well sort of anyways --
That does sound like encouraging news concerning Jim, Glo. Prayers will keep coming for the family.
Blogger just kicked me out when I tried to publish the last comment. I just hit the 'back arrow' from the error page, cut my comment just in case I needed to repeat it, Sign out & sign right back in, check the last comment & there it is MINE! But I didn't stutter. I never click on TRY AGAIN on the error page.
Blogger just kicked me out twice when I tried to publish the last comment. I just hit the 'back arrow' from the error page, cut my comment just in case I needed to repeat it, Sign out & sign right back in, check the last comment & there it is MINE! But I didn't stutter. I never click on TRY AGAIN on the error page.
This blog either steals or stutters....I think it has a "mind of it's own" .... scarey thought.
First he got a wreath, now he's got a tree. What will the Grinch steal next? LOL
You're a mean one, MR. Grinch...
I burned my arm on Monday remember when I had to fix my computer. One of the plugs pulled out of the back and I couldn't type. Well get down to work on it I didn't do so well. Use a small light bulb in small lamp 45 watt. Well I turned the pc and ounch my arm touched the bulb.When I finally got up I put Neosperma on it. It started itching around it on next day. When I went to dr. for other reasons today he seen it. Off the cream he gave me "silver sulfadiazine cream". If it gets worse (redder, itches more, or gets warm) I have to see him right away he said. Mainly because of being a diabetic.It is itching like crazy. lol remember us seeing Lun Lun itching well that's me only I can't scratch or rub around it. I wish I was a bear I'd rub against a tree hee hee
OK Get the wet noodle & start swinging at the blog that just made me out a story teller about not stuttering. lol
Awwww, the Grinch may have a heart after all....he gave Megan back her wreath!!!
The grinch stole Mema Jo's voice she is stuttering.
And now Mema Jo's tree is missing!
Can you believe the length this Grinch will go to around here??? I do think he prefers "trees!"
I thought you meant Vicky's tree the Grinch stole the other day!!! YOU MEAN MY SYCAMORE TREE BOY OH BOY IS HE EVER GONNA GET IT NOW watch this not postI am probably out of her for the evening unless I cold boot and my tree is returned.
YEs the sycamore tree is missing!
oooooooooo I got 50 lbs of wax!
Dana, that sounds painfull!!!
It certainly was when I did it.It's just driving me crazy itching. I told the nurse I thought it was healing because you know how things itch when healing. I learn't something new today, Nurse said itching doesn't always mean healing in this case it doesn't. Wow learn't something new.
I think the grinch has a thing for "woodise things" sycamore tree, wreath made with pine, and vicky's pine christmas tree. hummmmWe need Sherlock Holmes !
Wow, something for me to remember too Dana! Sure hope you get relief from that real quick!!DANA -- did you get through to Ed about when to take a drive?
Ok, now I'm finally off the phone and off to do my homework and watch CSI, since Greys' is a repeat. The Grich is a meanie, bettter keep his grubby hands off my Maggie.
Yes we do need help from Super Man or Spider Man OR Wonder Woman!
Tony Tony turn aroundTell me if my tree is found
So far humans are not in demand by the grinch!
NOPE Mema Jo, no tree
Don't get all in a tizzy trying to get it back Mema Jo, just wait your turn it will come back!
Yes Vicky he is going to take me and I usually take my Mom. Get her out to see the Christmas lights.He was just messing with me.
Well "just messing" with you is NOT allowed!
Ok legs are jumping got to lay down on bed. Can't be on puter now maybe I can get back later. Not going out though. Grinch probably won't let me back in.
Now is it my turn?
Really frustrating isn't it!
Ok, I can sing to myself since no one is around to hear me!Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, please find Mema Jo's branches!
Ok Now you all have me scared to post anything. This BLOG is downright mean tonight. What is going on in? Well hoping the grinch doesn't get Elia confused with Elm or something. Weird stuff happens right here!
As said before, so far cyber grinch does not take humans!
I have not been able to post my comments in the normal way all evening. I always get that #$%## error page and close down the blog & then when I turn it on - WOW! There's my comment that wouldn't post. Therefore; I am going to call it an evening...frustrating one at that. Tomorrow is another day & the old sycamore might come back where it belongs & where everyone can see it!! Good Night All Pleasant Peaceful DreamsPrayers for all my friends needsLast one out say good morning to Suzanne
No that would be blogger cop! With as little as we are posting right now, I guess we aren't too much in danger of that...maybe that is why the grinch has shown up, blogger cop is not happy with us Humans so he sent the grinch after our trees.
Now that's a theory to believe in Glo!
Well, he threw me out of the house and made me sign back in! The nerve of this grinch tonight!!
I would say these are kind of tough times on the bLOG...That's OK This BLOG has Spunk! and more!!!! WE can handle it LOL
Ok, so I still have not done my homework, now I know where son got that from, I'm going to get up early and read the stuff, just wish we didn't have to present it. My first presentation is on the sloth bears and I'm doing it with a retired gov. engineer, who has nothing but time on his hands and uses words, you need a dictionary to look them up, but right now my brain is mush and will probably just go to bed and get up early tomorrow.
Yes we have spunk -- and a whole lot more, we will get through this!
Poor Mits, bet the cyber grinch messed her brain up tonight!
One last good night just to see if the sycamorehas been returned.
WHOO HOO !!!! I over powered the Grinch Super Momster Mema Jo
Hail Hail the sycamore tree is here! See Mema Jo, patience!
Yes, Vicky, brain is mush, was out travling in all the fog up I95 today, used up all my concentrations cells on that...BTW, while I am saying GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE...JO SAYS GOOD NIGHT ALSO, AND, IF YOU HAPPEN TO SEE THE OLD SYCAMORE TREE, PUT IT BACK IN ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE! GOOD MORNING SUZANNE.
I can't believe you made it in after I wished everyone a good night for you:):):)!
You did just as you were told Mits! And a great job well done!
Hello everybody. Hope all is well with everybody today!Here goes -- When I was in the hospital last month, they found a mass in my liver. I have had to have several different scans and blood tests trying to find out what it is. Today, I had an appointment at Charlottesville this morning with a surgeon. He believes it is a benign adenoma and will have to be removed. It is the size of a softball and takes up about 1/3 of my liver. He said the surgery is going to be a pretty big one because the tumor is so big. God has been working overtime with me, keeping my faith strong and my attitude very positive. I didn't mean to leave everybody out of the loop but didn't want to say anything until I knew more about what it is. Don't want to worry anybody needlessly. It is causing a significant amount of pain in my side and my right shoulder because it is rubbing against things it shouldn't be. Well that is all the news that is fit to print for now. I so appreciate all the love, concern and prayers that have been going my way! All I can say is it has been awesome! Love you, my eagle buddies!
Man oh days i see the grinch has been in stealing Jo's tree and Megans wreath.. All of a sudden the grinch song is running thru my head..lol What abusy day i have had down home. Went shopping with sister and fixed dinner also gave a perm which turned out really nice. Just a nice day off work... My dad is so funny i swear he is getting senile and shrinking, he is shorter than me and i am only 5-3' lol Great news about the live cam, i watched the video of Buta Buta earlier today right after her exam and just want to swoop her up, but relizing she is still a wild animal...

Jan 10th is a Wednesday......Tony is St. Anthony...Sharon has to pray to him all the time, because her sister forgets where she puts things.....Dear St. Anthony, please come down, there is something that is lost and cannot be found. Amen and Good Night!!!
Sharon, I am sure this has been a difficult and trying time for you, your son and your family, especially as the holiday season approaches. The diagnosis and prognosis your doctor has given you is very encouraging and I hope has put your mind somewhat at ease. The thought of undergoing surgery is never a comforting one, but I know you have researched the condition and doctor and know you are in good hands. Do you know when you are going to have the surgery? All my thoughts and prayers are with you Sharon.Paula
Opps well i was justa typing and not watching that Jo, heck i dont want the wax...Pitchin it to Sharon..

Carrie and i sat right by them leaving the zoo that evening and the moma bear try scratching on the window to get my little neices backpack which looked like a giraffe' then Carrie made a face like she was kissin it and i swear it rolled its lip up as if it was kissin CARRIE WE LAUGHED...
Oh yeah, I went to the Bluefield Beaver Band's Christmas concert as soon as I got back into town this evening. My baby was the little drummer boy. Played the drum through the entire song. Mr. Saunders said it was Little Drummer Boy but the problem was that his drummer boy was kind of big! Of course, he did a superb job. I was grateful I got back in time to see. Butt is really dragging right now so I am going to bed and snuggle up to Mattie. Good night and sweet eagle dreams, my friends of fine feathers and fur!
Thanks for the hugs. There is nothing like a good hug! Hug all the time!

Wow, thanks for the update, Steven. Thought I read where the cam was back, but not sure, just glanced at your comments. In any case, it's back to psychadelic lines, so I'll have to go read the comments. I'm having eagle withdrawal! Beautiful night out, fairly warm and dry, no scraping this morning.All have a great eagle day.Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!
Read the comments. Congrats, MemaJO on 2 new Army Sgt's! That's awesome! Had to laugh when you said he forgot to salute when leaving! Brings back memories. Went before the E6 board, and you have to report, and I forgot my name!!! Had to look down at my uniform! So I can understand TOTALLY him forgetting to salute!Glo, good news for Jim, glad to hear it. Well SuperMomster MemaJo, looks like you got your tree back. Kinda glad I don't see the ol' grinch during the day. He must be a night owl.Sharon, glad you made it back alright. Prayers for you for your surgery on the 8th! Hope it goes well for you, and it will finally eleviate the pain!Nilla, congrats on not smoking for 4 months. That's an awesome accomplishment!Mits, sounds like you're gonna have company at the zoo on the 10th. OH, speaking of which, thanks for posting that link on Buta Buta's exam, MemaJO. Believe it or not, I could actually watch it! Saw her first steps. She is such a cutie pie! Gets her name today.Ok, work to do. All have a great eagle day!
Well, doesn't look like I'm gonna get an eagle fix today unless they land in the osprey nest! BW still has too much interferrence. Our cam is still sick. Kent is not refreshing since last night, and osprey nest is MT. Sigh....
Now if you could get the Maine cam, eagle was just there for a few minutes, Suzanne GOOD MORNING EVERYONE no fog this a.m. Going to do my homework, finally
LOL, Mits, have to have it done today, don't you? I used to do the same thing. Nothing like the last minute... stays in your mind that way!Sorry I missed the Maine eagle. Doesn't look like I'm gonna see too much today.
Suz, the BW cam looks great...no lines.
Oh, thanks, Mits! They fixed it this morning! It was hurting my eyes.
Eagle in and out at maine..Fla cam does not seem to be working.
There was just a squirrel in the Maine nest, sounded like an eagle near by and bam, he was out of there pronto.
Good Morning all. My guess is Steve is as frustrated as we are with the cam this am Seeing its Fri, I hop eit is something small leftover, so we can have it for the weekend. I am off for coffee and dog treats. Buta Buta gets that other name today. To be honest I think I will be out eagle watching, and catch a video when I get home, as I don't get Animal Planet. My neighbor gets CNN they may pull it in over there and we could watch it together. Not sure. Hope all have a Great Day
Good morning all you dear wonderful eagle friends of mine. I am trying to keep all the grandkids happy by spending some time with each, and so sorry I have neglected posting on the blog. I do well to get to read it. But I just wanted you ALL to know that every entry in this blog is a treasure to my heart and that I love you all. God Bless You all and may He hold you to His heart this blessed season. I treasure each of you as you have become so close to me. love donna
Kingfish he pretty sitting in Conn.http://126.96.36.199:81/view/index.shtmlall one line in case you removed the link it is where the osprey was.He is gone but will return I sure.
Good Morning Mauley and a good day to you too.

Eagle in Maine is eatingWow Mits I seen the Kingfish but my "Oscar" the seagull is back well well hee hee ty
Sound is working at DC Zoo Mei and Tai are outside on the concrete walkway.
Yep there is Oscar he is majestic for a "seagull" lol
Off to the zoo, TTUL!
OOOO, sound is still really weird at zoo.
Good luck Mits you can do it...
Eagle in Maine gone for now.Oscar the seagull in CT gone for now.
CNN just said at 10AM they are showing the celebration of Buta Buta's naming.
Mei is eating something (don't know if she took it away from Tai). HE is doing every trick he can do to get it from her.
Ahhhh Tai is happy his struggles paid off. He got a piece of what Mei had. Happy Happy cub now....
GOOD A.M. EAGLE BUDDIES---I guess I'll have to wait to see a live eagle today---Saw the "Little Prince" ---that little devil was nursing away last night---Do you think that is partly why he is always bugging MEI?----I have to check out---Christmas party at noon----Good Luck MITS on your test!!!---LATER "little buddies"--will keep CNN on while dressing--ho!--Anxious to see the "Little Princess BUCA
Tai is after Mei again for more of the sweet stuff she is eating. He is all over her. They are on a slight hill and he rolled lol...now Mei has moved away. Tai stayed back where she was cleaning up all the goodies. Oh my Mei has found another piece of whatever that is. Wait till Tai finds out. Mei is up by the windows eating it.Tai go see what Mommy has lol
Morning Norma enjoy your day.
Mits is that you at the window looking out at Mei.??????
Good Morning Eagle BuddiesWell, I have TV station CNN on and am hoping that in a few minutes the ceremony will begin & that it will be televised! Haven't checked any cams yet except ours - Come on NCTC IT staff - Were rooting for you!Suzanne E6 review - that is too funny. Nerves can do strange things to the mind
Mema Jo I've been watching CNN they said they are going to show the celebration of Buta Buta. So I'm watching too.
Morning, All! MemaJo, you're right. I was a nervous wreck! Told everybody after the board I sure was glad we had to have our names on our uniforms! Remembered to salute when I first went in, but then had to report. Have to say your rank, name, and reporting as ordered. Lost it on name!! Standing at attention and had to look! About that time 90 gazillion things go through your mind on what you're supposed to do when reporting, and looking down at your name tag is NOT one of them!Tried to get on CNN online, and they don't say anything about the baby. What is CNN doing? Are they showing it? Oh, keep us posted...
OH *(%%(!!! The Panda naming ceremony IS on CNN online, but ^*&*%*$= I can't get it. Of course!!!
Suzanne they showed her moving of course I have her up and she is sleeping. lol But YES they are going to show her being named. It is coming up when soon.
Oh, let us know, Dana.
I don't think that Buta Buta will be there. It is being held at another place in the zoo. She is still on the cam live in the nest bed for now.
Showing on CNN right now Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House.
CNN taking a break grrrrrr lolthey said 10AM don't they know it is past 10am
Suz, the CNN online only plays for 3 minutes then they want you to subscribe....
I think the coverage will come 'after the fact'. I also have ajc.com up for any announcement.
They are just showing her now and will be announcing name soon.
I went on the ajc.com and on the page about the singers in the celebration. There was a place to comment and I did plus I included our Liberty and Belle and the site.
I think Buta Buta will be present after the naming ceremony..Right now in nest bed. Atlanta's new panda gets a moniker today in a ceremony following the Chinese custom of naming the baby at 100 days old.
B.B.King is getting his Medial of Freedom award.
Yeah, Paula, I saw that. Brought mine up, and of course it didn't work, then tried to bring it back up a few minutes later, and they wanted me to subscribe. Forget it. Grrrrr. Wish I had a TV so we could watch while at work!
CNN break everybody needs a commerical NOT
Dang! What do you bet they announce the name at 10:59:59! It's quarter to 11 now!
Suzanne if the gate at NCTC isn't open call me tomorrow on my cell and I will direct you to the turn in the road to set and see them.
Ok Dana. What time are you, or is everybody going to the nest?
CNN sure knows how to get the suspense level up.
They are showing the man from China at a podem standing and talking. They didn't let us hear what he is saying. They will get back to it at the moment I'm sure when the name comes up.
Uh-OH, Grinch better watch out with my eagle!!!
Name is Mei Lan means Atlanta Beauty
MEI LAN Atlanta beauty
prounounced May Lawn
Thanks, Dana!!! Didn't vote for that one, another Mei!! Pretty name, though. Now we have a big Mei and and little Mei...
That Grinch better watch out with my eagle!!!
Thank you too, Jo! I liked the little star, or whatever it was. Dang. But Mei Lan is pretty too.
Well I didn't vote for that one either because I didn't want another Mei also. lol
Uh oh, the grinch is hanging about during the day now????Grinch, better give Paula back her eagle before she REALLY gets mad!
Paula you are stuttering
Grinch you better watch out. Paula has an eraser and she can wipe you out !!!
ajc.com has the news on it now
The update says Mai Lan got 22 percent of the vote. Vote was 53,000 votes. Wow, a clear winner, I would say!
Glo you lurker .....you've been caught...lolI seen your comment on the named panda cub page lol...yep "Buta Buta pet name".
I wanted the Atlanta Peach, but so long as it has Atlanta in it, that's ok.
Actually I think it was the "little peach", wanted Atlanta Peach but they didn't have that one.
Some comments didn't think she should have a name with Atlanta in it because she won't stay in Atlanta. Doesn't matter now she has her China name.
