normabyrd said...

HELEN---I find 2 PANDAS wrestling on both cams at NZOO!!---Where do you think the 'LITTLE PRINCE' is now????----I can't tell them apart anymore---

MITS said...

Whenever you see 2 pandas together at NZ, it is always Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, don't know why this cam operator has both cams on them...you can hear a voulnteer interpreting right now....some use the microphones

MITS said...

Mei has given the signal....playtime is over......wonder if Tian will listen.

wvgal_dana said...

Well there is hammering now for sure at Maine.

Deb said...

That is a good song, Megan, a morning brightener!

normabyrd said...

Deb said...

I need new shoes for my trip, off to SF to see if they have anything for me! I am going to check out kayaks, too.

TTUL

normabyrd said...

DANA---I only hear & see the wind blowing at the ME SITE!

Mema Jo said...

Good Morning Everyone
I agree about playing Good Morning Sunshine every morning, so I put it in my favorites. I had to listen to some of the others while over there - I guess age 64 was old way back then - Now it is still a young age!
I was getting the wavy treatment on our Live Feed also - Open House at BW so I am glad the eagles are going to make an appearance for everyone. Great he just left the platform.

MITS said...

hoodie at Finland

Mema Jo said...

Oh My! Now they get to see the eeiiwweeees on the platform!

wvgal_dana said...

Baby panda Luney has been by himself a long time...she is leaving him longer and longer.

Oh his belly is so chubby; he is so cute. Just want to hold him for awhile. I promise I'll put him back. Well maybe after I let every
eagle Momster hold him lol

Floralgirl said...

Well, now that everyone is awake...

Off to get eggs from the Sat. mkt, and then other groceries...quickly- cause it's too nice to be stuck inside..later all-behave...

Off to the auto junkyard...still need that car part for the college kids car..he will be home next weekend...then have to come back and mow...BBL

MITS said...

MITS said...

2 ewwiees...BWO

Mema Jo said...

Little Luney is getting pudgy!!
Dana - if you get him first pass him on to me before you put him back!!

Mema Jo said...

LL looks as though the way his is laying that he could flip onto his back..

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Good morning everyone!! In Falls Mills again this weekend at Tom's mother's. It is so beautiful outside. Gonna get her out on the porch for a while. Too nice to be in the house.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Could someone send me the link to the Finney nest again? I don't have it on my laptop.

Mema Jo said...

Hi There Sissy - give her some extra hugs from all of us. It's nippy here but out in the sun it should be very nice.

Off to get dressed so I can get out and enjoy the sunshine!

BBL

MITS said...

on its way, Sissy

MITS said...

Mema Jo said...

Will Do Sissy. Just give me a minute.

Mema Jo said...

Mits beat me to it! So now I will really go get dressed......
Enjoy your day everyone....

Finney On Water

wvgal_dana said...

There you go Sissy and Good Morning ( :

wvgal_dana said...

2 hoodies there

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks ya'll. I was gonna ask what kind of bird that was. They are pretty.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Luney is all alone. She is leaving him a little more now than before. I wish I was there. I would snuggle him up!

Mema Jo said...

SNUGGLE or SMUGGLE

Please clarify. lol

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

There's momma!! Bless her heart. She is the best mom!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Smuggle is more like it Mema Jo, read my mind!! Tom watched that Growing Up Panda the other day and now he wants one as bad as I do. But I want to BE one!!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Momma's go a whole mouth full of bear. Not gonna be long before he is too big for her to pick up in her mouth.

wvgal_dana said...

The hoodie is in the crow family. As beautiful as we see these hoodies at Finland their call sounds the same as a crow.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

momma's GOT a whole mouth full of bear!!

Hedgie said...

Been lurking while cleaning!
Lun cam is still dark...no lights in Atl. on weekend???
Pretty sunset time in Finney, w/ two visitors in nest.
NZ seems tame..not much action.
Back to vacuuming.

MITS said...

JO, you have mail.

wvgal_dana said...

On the left of page "Listen" button play just hit the button if busy refresh.

Hear call of Hoodies

Mema Jo said...

Almost sounds like the crows!
Thanks! I forgot about that site.

wvgal_dana said...

Jo I thought they would have a different sound even though they are in the crow family. They are so pretty. I thought they would have an unusual call of their own.

Mema Jo said...

Dana - I guess it is because they look like a song bird!

Mema Jo said...

Well - I never did get dress like I said I was........ lol

BBL

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the link Dana. They sound noisier than our crows!

Still got the rolling blackout for our nest...done mowing...didn't have the car part, will have to try to order it this week...gotta go get cleaned up and head down to see Mom...should be an easy day for her...no PT I think!

Beautiful day out there, get out and enjoy....wonder how crowded BW is?? Hope we have as nice a day in 2 weeks!!

Mema Jo said...

Before I leave -

Live Feed still looks like you're
looking inside a fish bowl.......

Still Cam is Still Stuck.........

I told the gals yesterday that we
should just go down there
and kick that solar panel unit to
start it up/running - Sorry we didn't
try it!!!

BBL

MITS said...

sorry we did not go looking for someone....

MITS said...

JO, YOU HAVE MAIL

Hedgie said...

Hagerstown paper was late today due to press malfunction, so just now reading it. Article under Can You Believe It column:
Beijing: 'The Wujon Zoo in central China has fed its two pandas home-cooked chicken soup twice in a month to reduce stress and given them a nutritional boost, a zoo official said Fri...3 yr. old Xiwang and Weiwei--meaning Hope and Greatness--were tired and suffering from a little shock since the start Monday of the weeklong National Day holiday, one of the biggest travel seasons of the year. On Weds. up to 30,000 swarmed the zoo and about 1000 packed the panda enclosure, shouting to get the animals' attention. The pandas paced restlessly. "They drank it (the soup) all like they drink their milk" said official He Zhihua.'
Chicken soup for the panda soul!!!

MITS said...

AWWW chicken soup, just like momma used to make.....:)

Mema Jo said...

I read that in the Frederick paper and I got a chuckle out of it!!
Wise person who thought of attempting to try that!

MITS said...

hope it was salt-free

NatureNut said...

Happy Lovely PM Everyone. We did not go to Taste of Bethesda (BOO) as hubby wants to go to car club meet this afternoon near Baltimore. Club is called Lost in the Fifties!!!

**GOOD MORNING, FOLKS**

It's overcast, and there's supposed to be a chance of rain in So Cal today, but I have my doubts...

Nethy the Osprey from Scotland was in France Thursday, got ignored yesterday, and now suddenly she's over a Mediterranean island and not too far from the N. African coast... more later ... maybe!!

Baby Panda in Atlanta is growing by leaps and bounds and getting stronger ... and hairier ... too.

wvgal_dana said...

Thanks Jim I checked on Netty this morning but there wasn't an update yet. Yeahhhh Netty...you can do it!

Ceil said...

Up date on Atlanta cub. Cub is all alone right now.

Floralgirl said...

Hmmm.... where's Ms. Eagle Eye today?? I got a large bag of stinkbugs for her...it is warm and they are everywhere..one just flew by my head...

wvgal_dana said...

Fishcrow walking around at Two Harbors

MITS said...

Saturday, October 5
The cub weighed 1299 grams yesterday afternoon; that is an increase of 97 grams in 24 hours! In addition to gaining lots of weight, his muscle control is improving more each day. On Wednesday, I saw the cub purposefully turn over, but it was more like he flung himself from his side to his stomach. Then on Thursday, I saw him turn over again, but this time, he just rolled onto his stomach -- in a mere 24 hours, he had mastered the act of turning over. This may seem simple, but to an animal that is born as altricial as a panda cub, it is a great feat -- and the first step to becoming mobile. Since learning to turn himself over, the cub is moving around much more when Lun Lun is away eating. He squirms around, working his limbs to increase their strength so he can eventually scoot around, but for now he just manages to maneuver himself out of the frame of the camera as I am sure those of you who watch Panda Cam have noticed.

Floralgirl said...

I have not seen one hummer in my yard today:(((((((((((((((((((

MITS said...

I saw 2 little white butterflys today....dancing thru the air....Megan

wvgal_dana said...

Baby Panda cub is missing from Atlanta!!! Where is Sissy and Sharon??????????????

wvgal_dana said...

Girls get to Fairburn with that cub and I'll pick you two up with the cub lol

wvgal_dana said...

Cub is back Sissy and Sharon must have almost been caught taking the cub. So they put him back with Lun Lun....no great escape this time lol

Mema Jo said...

Headed out to Church

BBL

movin said...

Is Oct. 1st the date they used to recommend you take down your H.B. feeders, Megan??

That's probably why...your birds might have started their migration. But they now say it's not necessary to take the feeders down, since the little darlings start south on their own instinctively. ANd there could be other birds from farther north or stragglers, which might use your flowers or feeders.

Around Santa Ana here, some Hummers stay all winter anyway, but more will stay if you leave your feeder out. If we humans didn't have the flowers and feeders, all or nearly all the Black-chinned birds would migrate to the deserts in S.E. Cal. and N. Mexico.

wvgal_dana said...

I have checked and re-check it is #67 at Two Harbors...???

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Jim check your email. #67 just flew out of Two Harbors

movin said...

Probably #87, Dana. Why? what's up?

magpie said...

ISS Berkeley County times tonight:

Rises and starts transit between 8:16 and 8:18 pm, from tne NNW - 29-degrees elevation (that's low) and is supposed to be bright...
if you see it, it will get "so far" in the sky then Poof, like a light bulb going out..

"Check your local listings."
I only have the times for my area...

Hope you see it! I'll be at work so I won't....Wah !

xo

wvgal_dana said...

No really Jim I enlarged it was clear #67. Isn't # 81 male and #82 female there?

Costume Lady said...

Did anyone just see Lun put a HEAD lOCK on Luney? That was so funny. Luney was unhappy with something and you could see his mouth moving as if he were fussing...Lun took her arm and put a Head Lock on him and covered his mouth and head. Then his little hind legs started moving. Ohhhh, my time is up...have to get back to work. Darn! I could watch that cam all day.

Floralgirl said...

Yep, Jim, I've had migrating hummers passing through for a while now, yesterday's visitor was a fat female..
We always leave our feeders up until about 3rd week in October to catch any stragglers.

IrisF said...

Hi Everyone, I just sent this message to the email list, but thought maybe some of you were not on that.

I sure wish I could be with you all for this year's NCTC Open house...It sounds more and more wonderful. Two dinners! I had so much fun last year! The food and fellowship were wonderful! Sure hope that never changes! There will be a lot of you there I have not met yet, and I do regret that I won't get to meet you at this time. Maybe next year!

Last year we ate at the Rumsey Tavern on Saturday. The food is delicious, but don't order the RIBS unless you have a BIG BIG appetite! That's where you will be eating on Friday this year I see.

I just want to share a little tidbit with you all, in case those of you that were there last year do not remember it from last year!! And to show you that have not been there before that we really do have a fun time! They have a band than comes in around 8 or 9pm in the Rumsey Tavern.

When the band came into the Rumsey Tavern dining room and set up to play for the guests, we were getting ready to leave. I asked one of the waitresses if we could stay and dance. And she said, " sure, as long as you do NOT dance on the tables". (kinda joking like.) Well, the devil must have gotten into me, because I said to her, "if my knees were better, I'd be right up there on the tables dancing!!!" We all laughed so hard...goodness we had a good time!!! (I have a hard time walking, much less dancing, hahha)

Anyway... I wish you all a great time and do a little "dance" for me will you? (but not on the tables please)I will miss seeing you all, but I have to be at a family reunion in North Carolina that whole weekend.
Love and hugs and safe travel everyone, Iris

Floralgirl said...

Well, Iris, I don't think we are supposed to be dancing on tables anyway, but we will miss you!!
I just saw a hummer, kinda fat, hitting the feeder..yay!!

IrisF said...

Thanks Megan, I don't think it's a good idea to dance on tables either! But, it sure was fun to laugh about it!!! Especially when I find it hard to walk on level ground. That makes is even funnier!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Evening Iris ( :

Sorry you won't be able to make it this year. Especially with so many new people we will be getting to meet. That have a interest in the wonderful NCTC Eagles.

Well I knew I hadn't said that. I said all along that I never said that at our last dinner or anytime.

Have a safe trip to North Carolina and the reunion. You WILL BE MISSED..

Mema Jo said...

I am back from Church and I have eaten dinner.... I am watching the TV program that is honoring not only Michael Phelps but all those from MD who went to the Olympics and they are
highlighting the "families"
Very good tribute.......

Hi! Iris! Enjoy the family reunion and you have safe journey. You will be in our thoughts!
BBL

Floralgirl said...

Yes, Iris, apparently this table dancing is frowned upon .....

IrisF said...

Thanks Dana, I will miss all of you too!

I must have missed something - well, I know I am not here very often anymore!

Hope you didn't get into trouble from something I said or did!!! That would be no fun at all...for sure!

IrisF said...

Hmmm, well Megan, I didn't know it was frowned upon...in that case I guess I'd better mind my p's and q's....Must have a connotation that I don't know about - care to fill me in? Anyone?

Floralgirl said...

Ha! Ha! not me.... I know nothing..

IrisF said...

Hi Jo, I know I will enjoy the Family Reunion, but it's very hard to miss the NCTC Open House and seeing all my Momster friends. I hope you all have great weather too!

IrisF said...

Megan, that sounded like Sargent Shultz.... - I know nussing! Funny!

Mema Jo said...

I like your picture Iris

It is going to be pretty exciting this year's Open House - new friends to meet and lots of old friends to
see. Others this year are going on the train ride that we did last year.
Should we tell them to take a cane?
You know - the caboose entrance.

Mema Jo said...

Beautiful flags as Ft McHenry with sparkling fireworks display. Lots of patriotic music being played and sung.

IrisF said...

I remember Jo...Those canes got us in the "front door" so to speak! Take our advice everyone...A cane helps. Just ask Vicky.. she had to find Glo and I the hard way.

glo said...

LOL well If You ave a friend who is a "little quackie " it's easier to find her if you need to. So canes and quackie friends are both very helpful at times.

What fun memories. I am so glad I got to go last year.

IrisF said...

Sure you did Wanda, you were standing right there! We laughed and laughed about it...

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - my USPS box arrived so I'm pretty well set for the open house.
Funny thing is that it was delivered to our side porch & didn't really know it was there until I looked out. I was looking for our outside stray cat... and there was Mr Red sound asleep by the box.. I did not awaken him - I waited for him to depart on his own. I was really anxious to open that box but I was patient.

IrisF said...

Of course, I could be wrong, it might have been my first time with you all instead of the second...my memory is not what it used to be....

Ceil said...

Good for you Jo. I would have awaken the cat to get to the box.

IrisF said...

Me too Ceil...a cat can always go back to sleep, but an unopened box - that would have to be opened NOW!!!

Ceil said...

Sorry you are going to miss the Open House Iris. Have a good trip.

IrisF said...

Thanks Ceil.. I would love to have met you in person! Next year, hopefully!!!

Ceil said...

Hope so Iris.

IrisF said...

What on earth are you talkiing about Wanda? I'm sure I don't know. Maybe I did say it two years ago and not last year...I thought it was last year, but I could be wrong.. I often am... but I do know I said it and we laughed about it as it was just a joke... then and it is now...

Floralgirl said...

Oh Wanda, you are definitely part of this group, and don't you even talk about leaving it. I vaguely remeber this discussion some are talking about- not every detail.. but what I do remember is that ir was pure silliness and nothing else, everyone was laughing and it was funny at the time.

IrisF said...

again,,, I think I am missing something here... didn't mean to step on anyone's toes - for sure...
please forgive me if I have done so.

IrisF said...

That is a fact Megan...it was pure silliness and nothing else... sorry I brought it up, but I remembered it fondly...

Hedgie said...

Hey, Jo, what's in the box????

Floralgirl said...

Yes, Jo, inquiring minds want to know....

Hedgie said...

Yeah, Megan...I'm nosy!

Ceil said...

I will have to find out what is in the box tomorrow. Going to call it a night. Pleasant dreams.

wvgal_dana said...

The reason I was laying down and not on the blog tonight was because I cleaned the windows inside and out in the car yesterday. It caught up with me today and set off pain in very badly in my neck down the arms. In my spine and down my legs. The twisting to clean the windows wasn't a good thing for me.

Miss you all....I have been feeling somewhat slighted in the blog and emails for days.

I can only say I forgive you Wanda and hope we can be friends.

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie said...

So, Jo, what was in the box????? It better not be an EAGLE!!!!

Mema Jo said...

3 THINGS WERE IN THE BOX

1 NEW EAGLE SHIRT FOR MEMA JO

2 BOXES OF EAGLE CHRISTMAS CARDS

AND THE 3RD ITEM IS A SECRET

MTBR at the dinner.........

Floralgirl said...

OOh- I bet it is a robo panda...

wvgal_dana said...

So Jo what is in the box?

When do we get the dinner list lady?

wvgal_dana said...

Wow Jo you knew I was going to ask that question. So you was typing the answer before I hit publish lol
YOUR GOOD ( :

Mema Jo said...

You'll get the list tomorrow or the beginning of the week as promised.

Read 2 comments up as to what is
in the box.........

Costume Lady said...

Well, you know what, JO? If I didn't have a bad knee I would dance on the table tops on the 18th.

IrisF said...

Darn and I'm gonna miss out on the secret!!!

Looks like it won't be the first time today...

Well everyone... sorry I stirred up things I didn't know about, but I do hope everyone can forgive and forget whatever it was...

Believe me life is too short to let misunderstandings get in our way... If God can forgive us we must forgive each other... for anything and everything!!! We are all in this together!

And.... our beautiful Liberty and Belle are depending on all of us to be here for them!!!!

God's Blessings and sweet dreams to you all! Love, hugs and prayers for all of us and our furry and feathered friends!!!

Mema Jo said...

Well no I'm not that good, Dana.
I was answering Hedgie about the
contents in the box

Robot Panda lol Wanda was going to order all of those & give them to us as gifts. I hated that thing...lol

I better look at LL
Has Anyone look recently?

wvgal_dana said...

It's a secret the 3rd item maybe Megan is right....a robo panda so many wanted one before and the items sold out so fast. Everyone wanted one lol

I'll tell hubby is rumbling tummy will have to wait a day or two for the din din list...hee hee

Ok I've eaten crackers and time to take another pain pill. So I can go back to bed and be out like a light going off.

Prayers for those that need them.
Nitey Nite
AOYP=Angel On Your Pillows

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - does your knee still feel
ok since the miracle shot?


Oh Wanda if we only did these things when we were younger instead of wanting to do them after our knees give in and our lungs give out!
We sure have to get our message out to these young people!

Live the adventures you dream about!

Hedgie said...

I must have missed something...what's up with a robo panda???

Mema Jo said...

Nite Iris and Dana

Floralgirl said...

What if I cut the legs off the table, then it will be easier to get onto it... ha ha ha... later gators- I'm outa here...

IrisF said...

That's the second or third thing I've missed today Hedgie...what on earth is a robo panda. I do need to get on here more often. Is there an 8 ball nearby?

Sorry you hurt so much Dana. Hope the pain pill helps!

Costume Lady said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Hedgie said...

Iris, since I'm a relative newbie (April), I often feel that I'm not behind that 8 ball!! So I never hesitate to ask!!!

Floralgirl said...

ROBOPANDA

Hedgie said...

"Every morning, every evening, ain't we got fun?" or is "In" the morning and evening?? Old song, but appropos!! We are all a hoot, aren't we?

Deb said...

I won't be dancing on any tables unless I find some shoes that fit. Where on earth do you find a size 10 1/2 in a store?? Who would think it would be so hard to find shoes that fit. 10's too small, 11's too big.

I will be wearing flip flops all winter at this rate. Off to Omaha tomorrow. I hope I have better luck there.

Mema Jo said...

ROBO PANDA When ZZ was born and you logged into the San Diego
Zoo - there was a commercial. It was 2 kids playing with this "stupid" looking balloon type panda. Finally
we realized you could click on
SKIP AD.

Hedgie said...

Thank you, Megan!!! That's cute...and I bet costs a pretty penny!!! What won't they come up with next?? I assume Sissy has one????????

Mema Jo said...

DEB if you're looking for a sneaker - look at at man's size 8 or so.
My one granddaughter has the same problem! Open House is jeans &
comfy shoes - We usually don't change for the dinner. So be
casual!

Costume Lady said...

Oh, Jo. I did all those things when I was younger. I really can't complain because I have been there and done that! I don't know for sure, but, if I think back a few decaded, maybe I did dance on a table. LOL
My knee still feels much better, just not good enough to climb on a table.....Oh, no, I am beating a dead horse, SORRY.

Hedgie said...

Hey, Deb....you know what they say about a firm foundation!!! Depending on the way it's made, I sometimes wear a 10!! But I mostly just buy at WalMart or Payless. If you have a Gabriels nearby, they often have fantastic buys on good shoes at great prices; so does TJMaxx!

Mema Jo said...

Oh Megan - you are bad!!!

That brought back many memories!!!

He looks better on that ad then
what he did on the commercial... lol

Hedgie said...

Time to hit the tub. Margy never made it back on....hope she didn't oversleep! Hope everyone feels better in the morning. Sleep tight. Peace and love to and for all.

Deb said...

I am good for tennis shoes, an 11 works well since I wear them with socks. I just want a nice casual slip on shoe that will be good for winter. I don't just want them for the trip, that is just a good excuse to get them now. Who knew it would be such a problem to find a pair that fits me! I may have to go to a clog type shoe, doesn't have to fit perfectly.

Deb said...

Lynn, not only big feet, but a very high arch adds to my shoe shopping woes. No Gabriels around here. I am hitting the DSW shoe store tomorrow, they are great, so many shoes!

Tomorrow I must write an article or at least submit information about our group to the S'town Chronicle.
I met the editor, Daniel Friend on Friday. Chronicle office is right beside Ellsworth Music store where I was getting the Mason Jar for our dinner night. Just in case anyone
wants to donate to the family's medical expense.
Anyhow-- I will say a lot of nice things about our group & I will publish the blogs url. and the live feed url. I sure hope it is up/running sooooooooooooon.

Checking back in before I shut down /puter. Read some of comments, & saw the RoboPanda!!! NOT very lifelike, but I also thought I bet Sissy has one!!LOL
Sorry Iris won't be there---have a great trip & reunion. Will miss Norma too.

Very sad to see that evidently Deshar did not make land (guess I missed reading that day).Hurts my heart. Hope Nethy keeps up the good work & goes w/good wind.

Night to all those hitting the hay---pleasant feather dreams..;>))

You know what is so ironic? My minister's wife called me today and asked if could help decorate the TABLE for our Love Feast at St. Joe's tomorrow. How did she know that I was in to tables?

GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE
SLEEP TIGHT
PRAYERS FOR ALL...and thanks for an answered prayer.

Megan, thanks for the RoboPanda link.. it's almost cute.. but Jo said it looked better in the ad than in the commercial... I'll take her word for that!!!

IrisF said...
