THANKS, STEVE FOR THE UPDATE AND NEW THREAD
BLOGGER COP IS AROUND TOO...
Thanks Mits and Steve. As I said on comment #200 on the other thread - I LOVE STINK BUGS!
NO YOU DON'T:):):)!
They remind me of prehistoric animals:):)
Okay, maybe I don't. I just scooted a dead one out the back door. Dogs stepped on it. Thelma gets about 10 or more in her house every day. Wonder what their purpose is?
Little Luney is getting to be quite a mouthful for Lun Lun. By the way, Beverly had an appointment and will be back later.
they exist just to annoy us....JMHO!
and they crunch when you step on them....yuck:)
awwww how cute Lun and Luney
Halyomorpha halys (Stål), the "Brown Marmorated Stink Bug," was accidentally introduced into Allentown, PA around 1996 from China or Japan.The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug feeds on a wide range of fruits, vegetables, and other host plants beginning in late May/early June including peaches, apples, green beans, soybeans, cherry, raspberries, and pears. Damage to host plants from the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is typically small necrotic areas but ranges from leaf stippling, catfacing on tree fruits, seed loss, and transmission of plant pathogens.During the summer the stink bug produces offspring that survive the winter as adults by entering houses. They enter houses through cracks in windows and the foundation and may be seen in large numbers during September and October. Due to the noxious odor produced as a defense mechanism, the stink bug causes a nuisance to homeowners. Since its introduction into Pennsylvania, it has established itself as a potential risk to agriculture as well as a nuisance to homeowners and has been steadily spreading throughout the eastern United States.
hmmm, thought it ate screened windows:(
So, that is a BM stink bug, huh?
roflmbo....Sharon, guess so:)
Hence, the smell...
For those who missed my comment (#200) on Sunday's thread....**GOOD MORNING, EVERYBODY**Fog was forecast for this morning in So Cal, but it has turned to light rain with occasional thunder in the distance. [:~D]W. site says it's supposed to get to 82°, but for now it's cooled off.I'm glad you liked the puzzle, and thanks for all the compliments ... not too bad for a nineteen-year-old, which I was last year. Remember??Have a good day... Think I'll take a peek and see how well the bail out is working.C(°ﮡ°)DJim
Oh, Megan...you are funny!!Jim, guess you saw where the bail out was voted down.I have been trying and trying to organize my pics in Picasa.....I am so confused. I can't seem to move folders into exisitng albums, and if I move pics from one folder to another it doesn't take them away from the old one....if I try to delete from the old folder it deletes them form everywhere. Any suggestions, photog pros??? I have a headache from trying--it's been hours!
Thanks for the new thread and the update, Steve!
got to go out again..bbialw:)
NZ pandas are inside with their treats:)
Hedgie - the help section??? I don't do any picture moving once they are in place in Picasa...but I do find that if I move them through regular windows copy and paste or move feature, picasa will pic up the changes next time you open it...
Help is kind of stingy, Paula. Will try windows. TY!! Glad you got your mom settled.
Well I hope no one saw my last comment - there was something dreadfully wrong with it but I fixed it quick......Well Now I really do understand those Stink Bugs but I agree with Mits & Sharon - ROFLMBOJim We are all grateful to have yourpicture as we can now picture you as we read your comments! :)We are hoping that one of these years you will come east.
LITTLE LUNEY ALERT
MEMA JO - I GOT IT IN EMAIL!!!! ROFLMBO!!

Well thank you Jo....we all know who that is up in that tree. Got picture off the video Brett did.Surprised it turned out so well.That is why Mits got the "practice run" in case I needed to re-do it more.Glad you gals are keeping an eye on me. Everyone needs someone to care about them "hugs and ty". ( :Pink kitten gone..bye byes
Okay JO - you were my last official act before hooking up the Bibs - guess your HOT MAIL IS TOO HOT FOR MY VERIZON! YAHOO FOR YAHOO !!TTFN, really...xoxo
I like green, but the cam is getting a bit monotonous!!Eat your hearts out, gals...I went to DMV two weeks ago, and we have a drive-in...I was done in under 5 mins!!!
Margy, don't you keep that boy out late--it's a schoolnight!! LOL. HAve fun.
I will returnCracker Barrel time........Do I dare buy those Buckeyes???BBL
Baby is by himself!!!
Sissy, are you watching???
Lun came back and rolled him up under her...then the cam went to another den and showed someone getting fed thru' the window!
Lynn, we have satellite DMV's all over the state makes things really easy.
Littley panda baby is back on cam ( :
Mits, is Megan in WV or MD?
Megan is in Maryland:)
Well now they changed it again. That isn't our baby panda cub on the Atlanta cam.
That's what I thought!!
Baby Luney back on
We have hard benches and people who don't even have their paperwork filled out when they get up to the counter..even though they sat complaining about how long their wait was..duh...
Hey Ann-Marie, how are you????
My brother just emailed. He wants to know if he can find grits in WV. Is there any around the motel?
Hi Mits, I have 10 days before I leave. I am so excited.
We will be at the comfort Inn sometime in the early afternoon of the 17th.
that I don't know....Annemarie
Hi Megan, Hi Dana?
we will be there also:)
Hi Hedgie too....
I think there is a place called Betty's...that is the place Mason likes to get his bacon:)
I am washing clothes and planning what to take. Its hot here. I cant fit into my skinny jeans. Sob......Oh well you are just going to have to take me fat and sassy.
Hi, Anne Marie. Yes, most of the breakfast restaurants serve grits. I can't stand them, so can't attest as to the quality!!
the email that Paula sent me says Bettys servs lunch and sandwiches.
I had them once last trip and dont see the difference between them and hot cereal.
My computer has been down. Is Mason any better?
Which Comfort Inn are you booked into, Anne Marie?
Helloooooooo! We are back home. Had a fantastic time at the beach. It was very interesting to say the least. We went to Port Aransas which is by Corpus Christi. The beach was covered with debris from Galveston. Along with vegetation there were TV's, Sofas, chest of drawers, tables, photo albums, coffee makers, unopened bottles of beer, coke, milk, etc. plastic chairs, plastic every thing!!!! shoes, staircases, docks, signs, railroad ties, lumber, etc, etc, etc. It was soooo sad! We saw this Monday night and Tuesday. It rained Tuesday so we went to the State Aquarium in Corpus. Tuesday night I told the others "I have to do something. Let's go to the beach in the morning and do our part." The others were all for it. We cleaned about 1/2 mile of beach, picking up what we were able to pick up. The city of Port A had crews picking up larger stuff. They took our garbage bags and piles of "stuff". Buy the end of the week it was surprising how clean the beach looked. The water was beautiful, clear as could be. You could wade out and see your feet in hip deep water. I loved it! We had good food and great time visiting with sister Sharon and BIL, Dan. The weather was beautiful after Tuesday, not too hot....just right. Pleasant to sit out any time of day and cool in the evening.We have now unloaded the trailer, cleaned it and will take it back to storage for a short while. Will get it back here at the end of next week to start getting ready to head east. Wahoo!!Did I miss anything? Jo did you send out anything more about the open house? I do not plan to go through all of last weeks blog!!!!Wanda, have you found your snake?
Comfort Inn, 233 Lowe Drive, Shep-town
Glad you had a good time, Lolly....nice of you to pitch in and help:)
Glad you back safe and sound Lolly....
off to start dinner....bbialw
Hi Mits! Well, I am not the kind of person that can look at a mess and do nothing. LOL I also pull weeds when they offend me....my yard and else where!!! :)
I like to dead-head flowers when I am near them...anybodies flowers:)
Hi Anne Marie! I am also excited about going east!! Look forward to meeting everyone.Hey, and we LOVE grits. Jack is from Georgia and he introduced me to them long ago. We eat them for breakfast frequently.
Hi Lolly sounds like you did "volunteer clean up" on your trip. Jo sent an email out about the food. Hi Anne Betty's use to serve breakfast all the time. Maybe they don't anymore. That's a question someone will have to check out.
Right on, Mits!
Jo sent me an email before we left and we responded.
The last post off of Loch Garten Ospreys: Posted on Monday, 29 Sep 2008 at 5.29 pmJust got the data - as of 3pm today (29th) Nethy was 50km NE of Rennes (France) and Deshar was still flying, he has missed the Azores. He was at an altitude of 500m and has so far flown 1978miles (3185km). The facts are now clear - on his current course the next landfall is 2470 miles (4000km) away in Suriname,South America - that distance is 3-4 days away.I will post a more detailed blog with the satellite data tomorrow
thanks Mits for the up date.
Lolly did you get your tickets for the train. Its wonderful
Yes, we have our tickets. They are in a pocket in the van.....ready to go!!!!
Lolly you have got to see Sharons house. It dates back to the 1700's and the town looks like something off of a p0ost card. I was raised in the west and had never seen anything like it.
We will be getting there the evening of the 16th. That will give us time to rest up and nose around a little on Friday.
thanks Dana for keeping us informed. I am so lost having my computer go on the blink.
Anne-Marie, do you mean Sandra's house??:)
Anne you have mail
Yes Mits I do, I'm getting loopie in my old age.
Jack is home....going outside. BBL
Dana what ever it is I didnt get it..:)
all I got was "Victoria Secret" :)
I'm there too Anne-Marie:)
I get more emails from them than I do from my family.....
so what's her secret????
what are you eating sat night. I had the crab cakes last year and they were great...
Welcome home, Lolly. Glad you had such a nice trip. How generous of you to volunteer like that...it must have been sad discarding peoples' memorabilia.A-M, don't know the restaurants in S'town well enough to know what's open for breakfast. But they sure have some nice ones for dinner!
apparently Victoria doesnt have as many secret's as she thinks she does.
that is what I want, as a matter of fact, am having them tonight, with the last of the seasons corn and tomatoes:), and a baked potatoe
Goodness, Dana....how far can Deshar go w/o landing and resting and eating??
There has to be something in town. People have to eat.
Dinner's ready. BBL!
I am having left over BBQ chicken and salad. I have been so good and I still gained weight. At least my jeans say so. I will be good until I get to my brothers and then all hells let loose.I am not going to diet until I get back....

There's a Cracker Barrel in Martinsburg. They have really good grits.
Evening Everyone in Green Camland!Little Luney was by himself, but see Mom just came nback and is licking him like a popsicle.
thanks, for the list Megan.
Everyone sounds so excited about Open House. It makes me smile to know that our little corner of WV makes so many people happy. The foliage should be beautiful and of course, the company is OUTSTANDING!I do not eat breakfast out in our town very often, but do know that Shoneys in Martinsburg serves GRITS, plain and with cheese. The cheese is VERY good, and yes, the plain does taste like cereal.
I saw that report on Deshar and Nethy too, Dana...She appears to be in good shape, but it looks like something went wrong with Deshar's navigation system. He was on the wrong course from the start, and it would be a miracle if he could make it now.Too bad, but I don't think anyone knows what's going wrong or has any idea of what to do about it.C(°ﮡ°)DJim
Welcome back Lolly. I have kept this neighborhood back and front clean for years. I am sure we will find Jack and you some good grits.
Here's something that will help you with first time grits eaters. Lot's of butter, salt and pepper is needed. Just plain grits are sort of bland. Take it from a southern boy. Also everyone should go to a Cracker Barrel for breakfast at least once. Best breakfast in town, anywhere.
I love Cracker Barrel Red. When my husband and I travel we stop at lots of Cracker Barrel. Love their corn bread.
Jim I must say you really got me interested when you posted the first "tiny url". I thank you..it is great to look at the map and follow these two osprey.I know Jim Deshar has been off course so to speak. It's hard to believe all that way and no land fall. David on the Loch Garten Osprey page said "he has been wrong about Deshar before on making it". Surely hopes he is wrong again!!!!
I have returned and I need to read from 5:00 until now.... I do see that Lolly is home and that AnneMarie's computer must be up/running........ I'll be right back after catching up on the last 2 hours YES SIR I DID GET BUCKEYES
We stop at a lot of Cracker Barrels, also. They love Campers and motor homes and we love them! Their parking lots are always full not matter where we are or whatever time of day it is.
JIM, do you think there could be something wrong with the navigation system?
For those coming to our area of Martinsburg. The Friends of the Norwalk Foundation just brought back "the last classic car that was manufactured in Martinsburg in 1914". It will be on display for anyone to see on Oct. 12 North Mall Foxcroft Ave.Photo here now Classic 1914
Well I made it through! Excitement fills the air TA TA de DAThis is going to be fun filled and I'm sure that a weekend isn't going to be long enough to say or do all we want to!!!! But we sure will try.
Cracker Barrel is the best...the only time we ever had problems was one up in New Jersey.....Ceil, can you remember the city?
Jim in reading it has been known for Osprey to land onto a ship. So many on the blog there are praying Deshar finds one. I'm sure you too Jim have read that. They say his device that sends back information is working fine.
Margie Sent your message to Yahoo....... Let me know you got it
off to eat dinner...bbl
Off to eat a Buckeye...... BBL
deer on PIX
I'm still eating buckeyes..... lol
ok I give, what is a buckeye, and does Ed know you are eating them? remember he gave you an apple last night:)
So, how is everyone?Is Lolly back yet?Sounds like Wanda and Mits had nice weekends!
Watching the Dancing show :)
Red - don't forget the cheese and egg on top of the grits as well!
Jo, don't oversate that sweet tooth!!! They are yummy, aren't they?Cracker Barrel has always been one of my favs, too. Looked and found that Bob Evans also has grits. Anne Marie, we have both in Martinsburg, which is just a short ways up the road from S'town.
I want to know what a buckeye is, too!
PAULA COMPTONYou googled it the last time Imentioned it - you even put the entire description!! Remember itlooks like a Buckeye but it tasteslike chocolate covered peanut butter!
Hey Sharon - I have a jar filled with 123 Stink Bugs and they are coming your way! lol
MITS - I threw the apple out in theyard for the bunny rabbits...He knows I have them - they were on his credit card - Hubby just doesn't know how many I have eaten.....
LOL Jo, I thought we had discussed it before....off to go google...
I remember it now :):)The buckeye confection, made to resemble the tree's nut, is made by dipping a spoonful of peanut butter fudge in milk chocolate, leaving a circle of the peanut butter exposed. These are a popular treat in Ohio, especially during the Christmas and NCAA college football seasons.
Mema Jo, when should I start checking my mail?
It is being sent Priority Mail --Probably Thursday!
The only thing I suggest is that you follow the instructions of:HOLD NOSE UPON OPENING
That is correct, we did talk about them before...so is it a candy?........WOW, Sharon what a treat:)
this show Worst Week or whatever is kinda weird...off to watch Boston Legal
Margie look in your Yahoo MailboxI am resending - let me know if you receive......... Thanks
Sharon if the lid is on tight us a mask like people use to mow with; before removing the lid. lol
I hope stink bugs will be gone by the time I get there. They look and sound disgusting. I don't like bugs!
I think a good frost might take care of them Deb:)
Jo, glad to see that Vicki is coming to open house! What about Norma? Lisa?
Did anyone send an email to Lisa at BW to see if she can come?
That is quite a list of people coming to the open house. We should have a great time. I am totally wiped tonight and don't know why. Off to bed. Twins have a one game playoff with White Sox tomorrow, GO Twins!!
DEB, the stink bugs are just a temporary nuisance and they don't bite or sting. They only stink when you squash them. Not to worry.
Good night to all. Pleasant dreams and peace.
My puter won't allow me to open up the guest list. Can someone copy and paste it into an email to me? Please. email@example.com
don't know Paula, re: Lisa
mine won't let me open it either, Wanda..our computers don't have the right program to open it, this has happened to me before with some things
Jo knows we can't open it
wow look at the time...Good night everyone....WAKE UP MASON:)
