Saturday

Rainy Day thread.

We've been working on the cam on several fronts. We plan on some fast maintenance up in the nest hopefully next week.

We have also set up a new, flash-driven live feed that will be run out of NCTC. We hope that will make things more reliable over the past couple of years.

More on this soon.

Wow Great Information STEVE and thank you for new thread.

I'll go call others over

Costume Lady said...

THANK YOU STEVE....THAT IS REALLY GOOD NEWS..WORKING ON THE LIVE FEED CAM!!!!!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING DANA....
Oh, my...won't that be wonderful to have the LIVE FEED back up and running? :) :)

Costume Lady said...

Of course, you know what that means...housework will have to wait!!!

Costume Lady said...

I have two vices in my life...Crab Legs and Eagle Cam. lol :) ;)

paula eagleholic said...

Well, Steve, that would certainly be wonderful.

Good luck!

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, Dana, Jim and Wanda. I think Margy hit the hay...not sure!

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Paula. I think Margy is probably asleep at her computer. She didn't say she was leaving. LOL :)

Costume Lady said...

Are you going to see your Mom today? Be careful, the roads are full of leaves and wet.

Floralgirl said...

That sounds great, Steve! And if someone is going up into the nest can they get that darn spiderweb...

wvgal_dana said...

So nice to catch up from Thursday on all the great comments.

So glad Sharon is doing Good...amen on those prayers.

Prayers working hard in Bluefield still I see for Sissy...ty God.

Also glad to hear Paula about your Mom....

Seen Lolly dear made it on...ouch. Take it easy there Lolly.

Thanks for the Florida Site Margy.
Had checked earlier end of Oct. Hadn't seen anything. I enjoy that site. The fountain is beautiful when they have it working. That gal Osprey cracked me up last yr. I did get to see
their chick and watch it grow.

Seen Dave was back on with photos.

Mits, Ceil and M. Margaret (maybe it was just Mits and Ceil) visited with our two Eaglets M & M gals. Bet that was a fun lov'n time!!! With hugs laughter and meat balls!

wvgal_dana said...

Megan send Steve an EMAIL about wipping Spidey out...

movin said...

Well thanks, Wanda, for telling me about the new thread. I was busy commenting to myself back there.

Hahahaha.

"Chattanooga Chu Chu" on the radio again this morning.

Deb said...

Megan, you have 60's and rain, I have 30's and snow. Luckily, it is supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow!

wvgal_dana said...

Wanda heading for Crabs Legs end of month. Couldn't get everyone together until then. Yummy I am so hungry for Crab Legs.

movin said...

Lowest gas in the area is at Costco this morning ... $2.22/Gal.

The majors are closer to $2.50 though.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Deb said...

Gas is getting down in CA finally, I haven't looked lately here, not sure where we are.

Both osprey at CC.

wvgal_dana said...

Got gas yesterday at Winchester, VA
Sheetz $1.799

Deb said...

My new bird feeders are a success. Even the cardinals are sitting in them, now!

Costume Lady said...

DEB...maybe you could make a bunch of your feeders and sell them :)
We had a feeder like that many years ago, that Gene made. I was pretty big, maybe 3 X 5 ft. I can't remember why we replaced it with store-bought feeders???

Costume Lady said...

LOL...I wasn't 3 x 5 ft...the feeder was!!! :) :)

Deb said...

I could, Wanda, they only took a little while to make, probably an hour for both of them and were pretty inexpensive to make. I have one hanging up with bird food, the other on the ground with squirrel food, I just have to convince the squirrels that it is better than stealing from the bird feeders.

Osprey just left Cape Coral.

Costume Lady said...

Gas here in Martinsburg is $2.09...$2.19 in Shepherdstown and, as Dana said, undet $2.00 in Winchester, Va. That is a 30¢ difference. Probably worth a trip 20 miles up the interstate.

MITS said...

GOOD SATURDAY A.M. EVERYONE:)

Costume Lady said...

Deb, the squirrels may be the reason we took the big feeder down. Probably stuffed their pouches full of the bird seed and not much left for the birds. We probably have 20-25 squirrels here.

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Helen...I had to smile when I read that both the M&M girls are walking. Would love to see a photo of that :)

Deb said...

Wanda, I have had 6, but usually just 2 squirrels.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb I am in action with new bird feeder project. It has to work from me filling from my ramp. Then swinging it out into yard. Not in the fenced yard, that for doggie.

Now I'm working on bottom to catch feed with wire overtop. For smaller birds to fly in and out top and sides. So top feeder will be for Cardinals, Blue Jays you know bigger birds. Bottom for smaller birds.

Seed won't be all over the ground.

Costume Lady said...

SHARON, hope you slept well last night. Safe travels for you and SISSY today. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME ;)

wvgal_dana said...

I bet Maggie is trying to do everything that Mollie does.

wvgal_dana said...

Got a great buy at BonTon for Braydens birthday gift for this evening. Lots of nice cloths marked down.

1 year mark lol this is gonna be FUN @!!!!!!!!@

Costume Lady said...

DANA, are your bluebirds still around? My mother's leave right after their last babies fledge...don't come back til Feb. or March.

Costume Lady said...

I need to get busy. BBL

Deb said...

We had blue birds a few weeks ago, don't know about now.

I didn't need anything fancy for bird feeders, just needed something that would accommodate more birds. This morning I had one cardinal and about 12 finches in the one feeder at one time.

wvgal_dana said...

Oh no Wanda mine stayed around all year long when we lived in Inwood. They stay around all year long on this north end too.

wvgal_dana said...

Belive me Deb mine won't be nothing fancy.

I just can't go out onto lawn to
refill the feeders like I did before. Although before I wasn't on the lawn on deck and steps. Feeders hung right up both areas of steps off deck. Never had to put feet into lawn.

MITS said...

Saw that this morning... Looks like the coons knocked out the battery from the feeder last night. All is fixed and working now.

T-Bird said...

Hello everyone

T-Bird said...

All of us (Buddy, Sharon and Me) say hello and we are doing okay.

MITS said...

That is good to hear, Thelma;)

Mema Jo said...

Thanks T-Bird for the update.
Sounds good!

WowWee! I like what I am reading Steve - you got our Live Feed just where you wanted it to be! Thanks a
thousand times over!

Wanda I am so glad you clarified the size of that bird feeder!

So! The coons did it! Glad they didn't try to eat that little black box.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE

T-Bird said...

Yeah, Sharon is actually "looking human" again. Although she is dealing with lots of pain.

Mema Jo said...

I was trying to check out the Hummer's nest.....Still looks like eggs in there.
I just love looking at the MT nest and then PLOPP the momma is in the nest. Always makes me jump back.

Deb said...

thanks for the update, Thelma. Are you still taking Sharon home today since she has so much pain?

T-Bird said...

Yes Deb Sharon will be going home today. The medicine has been pretty much taking care of the pain so that is another miracle.

Mema Jo said...

Helen - I forget to check out the Forum on the PA Woods site...
Mystery has been solved! Thanks.

Mema Jo said...

But Thelma Don't you hit any potholes! ((hugs))

Mema Jo said...

T-Bird Be sure you read to Sharon Steve's remark on this home page.
Both of you should be really happy
about the LIVE FEED staying on Home Ground.

T-Bird said...

I'll sure try my hardest to miss the potholes Jo. :) I will read Steve's remarks, thanks for the heads up.

The leaf or bark is gone from our camera. :)

Deb said...

I am glad the medication is helping the pain, Sharon. Good advice, Jo, avoid those potholes!!

I wonder what is in the nest at Cape Coral. Looks like a trash bag.

Deb said...

I see I was slow on the pothole comment, Thelma already answered. :)

Mema Jo said...

DEB - Please give me the link to
FL Cape Coral
I was deleting some favorites the
other day trying to free up some
disc space.......

Deb said...

Cape Coral Osprey

Mema Jo said...

Thank you, Deb

Luney is very visible
Growing so fast

Deb said...

Have you added more memory space to your computer, Jo? It is very easy to do.

Mema Jo said...

Hubby said he would do it
But don't you do it to the Hard Drive

Mema Jo said...

Really looks like black plastic at the nest... not only in the center
but also on the right side

Mema Jo said...

Deb - how easy is it to add space to my C drive.

Mema Jo said...

Osprey flew in to the nest at CC

Deb said...

Yes, you add it to the hard drive. First you need to know what memory board you need. If you still have your manuals, that should tell you. Otherwise you can open your computer and look. It is just a matter of snapping in the new board, Jo. I have done it to three computers, the first took me about 15 minutes, I was worried I would do something wrong, the next two took abut 5 minutes beginning to end.

Mema Jo said...

I think hubby has larger memory board & he just needs to take time to put it in - I'll watch this time.

Are you watching the Osprey at CC

Costume Lady said...

Not only can DEB make BIRD FEEDERS, but she can fix 'puters, as well. Glad she is on our side :)

Deb said...

Yes, I am watching the osprey.

Costume Lady said...

Never heard of a MEMORY BOARD..do they make them for humans, too?

Deb said...

The first time I asked questions at Best Buy, the guy there was very helpful. After that used the manual. Hearing it made me more comfortable doing it.

Deb said...

Good Idea, Wanda. I have a hard time paying for something I can do myself. The first computer I did wasn't mine, but I heard how much Office Max was going to charge to do it and decided it was time to learn.

Mema Jo said...

Wanda - I'm going to check that out!
I sure could use a new memory board!
lol ((hugs))

Deb said...

Here is a good how to article:

PC world

Deb said...

I have a squirrel in the squirrel feeder! I put some apple in it, to lure them to it. It must have worked.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Deb
Guess what - that is about the only
mag that comes into my house anymore!

Mema Jo said...

We are having a torrential
downpour!!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Looks dry at the nest.....

Deb said...

I think we have a baby hummer!!

Deb said...

Now, I know we have a baby hummer!

MITS said...

my weather bug just alerted me to a Tornado watch til 7 today...it is 76° here now, Jo I was watching weather underground radar about an hour ago, and looked like rain was heading staight to your area, but missing the nest

Deb said...

I put two baby hummer pictures on my page.

Deb said...

I am off to run errands, bbl!

Mema Jo said...

You hit it right on the head, Helen
That was quite a downpour and it started just as Ed walked into the house.

Deb there was an egg earlier this morning in the hummer nest - That was fast hatching!

MITS said...

ewwiee at BWO

Mema Jo said...

My PC just shut down all by itself!
So I went and made my PNutButter/Jelly sandwich.

EWWIEE is still at BWO
Their Eagle cam will turn on in Dec

BBL

MITS said...

I was just think about that Jo.....how things will be heating up in the next few weeks, and we have a baby panda cub to watch grow too.:)

MITS said...

osprey just came back to CC, I have loved watching that cam...shouldn't there eagles be up and running soon...sorry there will be no feed from Tesoro this year, think I read that somewhere.

Bob Quinn said...

Hey! New photos from last week at BW are up:

Last Weekend

Bob

Costume Lady said...

Don't think it missed the nest, we had a very windy downpour here. Wish we had something growing in the garden that could benefit from the rain...oh, well our well needs it.

Floralgirl said...

Wow, Bob, those sunset pictures are beautiful! Love the bluebirds, too, have a lot of them in my yard.

Bob Quinn said...

I love bluebirds. The ones around here are very shy. It's difficult to get them to pose. ☺

Floralgirl said...

The colors in that first bluebird pic are gorgeous.

MITS said...

beautiful....Bob:)

Here's my next vehicle-flying car

Mema Jo said...

BOB - you have captures a lot of activity from the refuge. I love the sunsets!

Mema Jo said...

MEGAN - Looks like they still get $ for license plates! Rip Off!

That would be so cool for you..
You could decal
MEGAN'S MARKET
on the side of it!

MITS said...

I can just see her flying around the nest now;)

Floralgirl said...

Hey JO- here you go-
I'm back in Paoli with Sacco, our dog, holding down the fort. Yes I did bring Sacco inyesterday and today to visit Mason. Nurse Cathy thought I would bring him in today when the officials were not around. Whoops, I broke a rule again, I hate it when that happens.

Sacco and I breeze past the front door gate keeper, get to the second floor through the doors, in the hallway someone with a badge says, " aw is he a therapy dog?" I say "why yes he is!", " she says, "where is his tag?", I say, " well I don't know, he had it on this morning."

Mason was in bed so Sacco jumped on the bed and licked his face, made sure it was Mason and laid down with him for a while. That's therapy, is it not?. When we were leaving, another badged person with a patient in a wheel chair stops to let her pet Sacco, "is that a new addition to our therapy dogs?" " Why yes he is, but only for a little while." "What kind of a dog is he?" " Well he is anything you want him to be." We get on the elevator and Sacco hits the deck, badge lady says, " I guess he's not used to elevators yet." I say " I 've never seen him do that before!". I took him in today, under a lot less scrutiny since it is the weekend, and Sacco had a nice long visit. Mason was up in his chair so Sacco got in the other chair and they visited quite nicely.

Mason did some good work with the speech therapist yesterday, he was following a couple of commands and tracking some things quite well. Today I brought in some strips of bacon I cooked and as soon as one was out of the bag, Mason locked right in on it, he got a nice whiff and followed the bacon around like nobody's business.

Mason still has a little something so he has to stay in his room, but the therapists come in for their work. He has had a sensitive stomach, so they will change his feeding tube, which means a trip to Paoli Hospital, but only for a couple hours. As long he stays even, they will start the drugs sometime next week.

Love to all and thanks to everybody for supporting and holding us up. We can't do this without you!

Sacco, Sylvia, Brian and Mason

Mason's Update WHoo HOoo

Hedgie said...

Hi all. Catching up...slowly but surely. Busy here...washing curtains and windows. Waiting for dryer to finish so I can iron curtains now.
What wonderful news from Steve and NCTC folks...can't wait!!!! Cam looks good at the moment--bark gone again!
Powerful storm here awhile ago...knocked out my satellite internet.
Dana, yes Mary Margaret was with the M&M's, too!

Mema Jo said...

Great Timing Megan!!! All sounds good

Floralgirl said...

Yep, off to pick up kid- wish I had that flying car!!!

Costume Lady said...

Loved Mason's update. I thought it was you, Megan, who did the shenanigans with the dog...probably something you might do if you so pleased :)

Costume Lady said...

Instead of cleaning out the left-over stuff from Halloween in my office...I amused myself with some photos from our Open House Dinner...When you have time, BOB, check out JUST FOR FUN on my blog site.

Mema Jo said...

OH WANDA! You should have been a comic writer! lol I sure hope Bob sees what you've done

MITS said...

roflmbo, Wanda

Costume Lady said...

Well, Jo, it is so close to being true.:) :) Didn't have to give it much thought.

Mema Jo said...

Ladies & Gents... I'll be back after I get myself presentable! ☺

Bob Quinn said...

Very funny Wanda. When Michael brought the checks it was like Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" (Now I'm showing my age).

Costume Lady said...

DAVE, thanks for being a contributor to our entertainment. We love photos...I guess we don't have to tell you that!! And, thanks for being our friend.

Hedgie said...

Marvelous pics, Bob...as always!!
Wanda, your captions are just too funny!!!!
Ironing time. BBL!

Costume Lady said...

BOB, Those bluebirds take my breath away. If my MOM could see sights like that, she woulD live forever. Besides her family, BLUEBIRDS AND FLOWERS ARE HER LOVES!

Bob, you take such beautiful sunsents...I was wondering if you Know CORKY, who also loves sunset photos. He was a friend of ours many years ago, and we lost track of him. He once framed a photo of a sunset and gave it to us just because he knew we loved sunsets.

Costume Lady said...

SORRY....THE NAME IS: CORKY QUINN.

movin said...

Very excellent pictures this week, Bob. [:~D]

How did you know we were all ready for a dose of the famous American eagle??

Question: Is there anything you can do to fix the format of the slideshow??

The speed settings, etc., block out the descriptive line, which sometimes all I have to I.D. the subject of the shot.

I think we all love your photos, and I know I do, Bob.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Mema Jo said...

Wanda if Bob tells you he has an uncle Corky or that his dad was
called Corky - Well that's when I will really believe it's a small
world.....

MITS said...

slide show of Bob's pics work perfectly for me:)

Bob Quinn said...

Wanda- Never heard of Corky.

Jim - Unfortunately, I don't control the slide show features, the hosting site does.

MITS said...

YUCK! ND just beat Navy:(

MITS said...

eagles close by to nest in MAINE

magpie said...

Good "Morning" Everyone...
Mom is feeding baby at Hummingbird site..

Make that, Was...now is sitting...

Wow, Cape Coral looks kinda, windblown and Shaggy...

Time to check all the pictures I see are on here today.

xox ♥

magpie said...

I just heard Eagles at Maine...but didn't see any.

Good to "see" so many on here today...a lot was happening while I was snoozin...

I'm wondering about the mysterious "Bark" - seems to pick up shadows in the early morning and then clear....wonder just where the Object really is....

Mema Jo said...

Sharon just called and is now on her way home with Thelma & Buddy. She said she is doing fairly well - She will touch base with us once she gets home.

I am on my way to Mass

MITS said...

yes, that it strange, Margy, beginning to wonder if the cam is doing a loop of previous days????

MITS said...

sun is setting, it is raining and we have a beautiful rainbow in the eastern skies

magpie said...

Wow - Rainbow! How Magical and Blessed, MITS ....It's leading Thelma and Sharon back to their roosts...
just looked, but we got some clouds moving in again...

magpie said...

Evening Eagle at BWO

magpie said...

MITS - I could not open the link to the Black Box Mystery - can you help me out....? I am in suspense !

magpie said...

Wow - Bob's photos, Deb's little hummingbird bobble heads, and Wanda's Comedy Pictorial! What a treat, all...

magpie said...

Can someone please call my office and tell them I am too busy at home watching and reading stuff to go to work tonight ???

magpie said...

So, is that Dad on Hummingbird nest with the bright scarlet on his neck? er, I mean, WAS on the nest...

magpie said...

Nuthatch at Pix Pa

Costume Lady said...

MARGY...called your office and they said, if you don't come in, they won't let you off next NCTC OPEN HOUSE!

magpie said...

Well, thanks for trying Wanda - but I couldn't miss Next Year at NCTC - It's a life-changing event ! xoxo ♥ ♥ LOL !

magpie said...

I see ducks in the Intercoastal Waterway at Cape Coral....

Costume Lady said...

It certainly is Margy. It is something hard to explain to anyone. You have to experience it yourself...in person.

magpie said...

But more than anything I am feverishly watching OUR NEST for some action !

magpie said...

Waiting for it, that is......

magpie said...

Hummingbird sure is posing for us...

Soooo beautiful and delicate....beak is as long as its body !

magpie said...

I guess it is just a Canal and not the whole intercoastal waterway in Cape Coral...spent some time in Florida right along a canal for a bit once....It was glorious! Down in Palm Beach County...now that's where to be in January and February !

magpie said...

♥ DANA ♥ Enjoy your birthday party with the Little Tyke...guaranteed enjoyment !

magpie said...

OKAY - WE GOT BIRDS !!

Costume Lady said...

There they are!!

magpie said...

Singular, bird

Costume Lady said...

No sooner said than done!

magpie said...

Oh, Man - - gone already !

And now we got rain and wind moving in in Berkeley County...knew it was coming...!

Costume Lady said...

That was just a nanosecond.
No rain and wind here, yet.

magpie said...

Okay - Back !

Costume Lady said...

Head and Tails!

Costume Lady said...

Playing games with us, Margy. LOL

magpie said...

I'm repeating myself Okay Gone !

But it is NOT OKAY !

xo

magpie said...

So great to see them with you, Wanda, hope a few others got a peek too !

Looks like snow in Michigan !

I've got to pull on the bibs and find the Cinderella Fairy now...

Peace and Prayers, to all.

xo ♥

Costume Lady said...

Probably gone for the night. Too dark to be playing games...time to roost.

Costume Lady said...

Have a good evening Margy...hope it is a quiet one.

magpie said...

Okay - just read the Mystery Solution over on Yahoo Re: The Black Box ! Thanks Ladies.

Putting an Evening PIC up nest..then time to get ready !

magpie said...

Oh dear, many lost their homes in California to Wildfires, over 500 mobile homes destroyed. Those folks need our prayers.

Sayonara All

xo ♥

magpie said...

' Night Wanda.. Hope it is more quiet than last night! Had lots of domestics, one burglary in progress....things are just not the same anymore in this little community...Sigh....

xo

Costume Lady said...

Every year, when those fires come to California and people are unprepared for fires, I think to myself: what would I want to save if a fire should destroy my home...it can happen anywhere to anyone. The first year that the reality of IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, I gathered all my photos and placed them in a large metal suitcase, wrapped them in heavy foil and placed them in the basement, with concrete floors and walls. That is a part of your live that you cannot replace.

Hedgie said...

Hey, Margy...good night, I hope. It's been a bit busy today.
Another seasonal chore done....5 windows=12 curtain panels, 6 swags, 2 valances...what a job!! Now I need to get something to eat to refuel!!!

magpie said...

Had trouble finding the fairy but she finally showed up!

You all take care, Safe and Warm Wishes to all...

Hedgie, it sounds like the Whirling Dervish was present today !

T-Bird said...

Hello everyone

T-Bird said...

I dropped Sharon off with Bev and Mattie a little over an hour ago. Hopefully they are home safe by now.

MITS said...

Hi Thelma, are you back home?

MITS said...

OK, that answers my question!

T-Bird said...

Yes, I'm home MITS.

Costume Lady said...

Thelma, how was Sharon feeling when Sissy picked her up? I worry about her traveling with all that pain. :(

T-Bird said...

She was feeling some pain and soreness. I know, I worry about that too Wanda. She still is not able to eat enough to keep a bird alive.

T-Bird said...

I wish she could have stayed here until Thursday but she couldn't be by herself during the day.

MITS said...

did she eat that egg I told her to have you fix this a.m.????, when we were talking.

T-Bird said...

No MITS, she ate a small sausage biscuit. One of those mini Jimmy Deans.

T-Bird said...

I just got word that they are in Bluefield.

Hedgie said...

Is Sharon going to be able to sleep in her own bed tonight? Since they live next to each other, guess Bev (or Mattie) could stay with her, right Thelma?

MITS said...

that's too bad...just a plain egg and toast would be better for her stomach right now...yes, she really needs to have someone look after her.....my sisters were a true blessing to my healing process. I know you would if you could, but you are working full time, and that is very important to have a job.

T-Bird said...

Lynn, Sharon will be staying with Beverly, not at her house.

MITS said...

I hope those dogs of hers behave.....heard Buddy was a really good dog with her last night.

T-Bird said...

Yea MITS, Buddy watched over her last night. :)

T-Bird said...

I know she'll miss not being home with her dogs!

MITS said...

well, she can say hi to them thru a door, don't want any jumping up on her right now.

T-Bird said...

We're going to have to stay after her to eat right and let people know what she needs.

T-Bird said...

Yea MITS, I'm very thankful for my job.

Hedgie said...

Just glad to know that Sharon is back in the hometown. That's a great boost for her spirit. She will bounce back fast, I'm sure. She's a determined lady!!

T-Bird said...

Ditto that Lynn

Hedgie said...

Jim...things sound so awful in CA. It is so sad....and such a miracle that more people don't lose their lives in these infernos.

Hedgie said...

My SIL is a professional firefighter and I am so relieved that he's never had to deal with anything like that. Regular fires are bad enough.

Deb said...

Hi, I just got home. I talked to my sister in Huntington Beach and she said the smoke is horrible. She said she can't even see the sun. Only one station had fire coverage on it. My future nephew-in-law was having trouble finding a way home from work. His work wouldn't let him turn on the radio--how dumb is that? He had to call Dianne to find out how to get home.

MITS said...

dumb is correct, Deb

T-Bird said...

Deb, it sure makes one wonder what people are thinking!?

Hedgie said...

Deb, I think it goes a step beyond dumb--more like idiotic! Obviously a very caring employer, duh!!!

Hedgie said...

Sure glad my daughter and SIL got through LA yesterday...wonder if airport has delays because of all that smoke, etc....like does the particulate matter damage an airplane's engine??

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good evening to all my friends of fine feather and fur. I am at Sissy's now. Going to stay here for a few days. I am doing much better than I anticipated but it sure does hurt. I am so grateful that I am on the other side of this. I am triply grateful to all my friends on here that prayed me to this point. It is good to be back in Bluefield but it is going to be wonderful when I can go to my home.

Costume Lady said...

Hi,Sharon, I have been wondering if you slept any better last night at Thelma's without nurses coming in every hour on the hour?

Deb said...

Sharon, glad you are home safe. At least, almost home.

Here is a link to the Orange County Register for fire news:

Haven't been able to get on here since early this morning! Finally rebooted computer and now I'm on...

Have to go catch up on today's blog.

Memory cards increase your memory so your computer may run faster. Only another hard drive can add disk space. Jo, you must be desparate for disk space if you are deleting favorites...they really don't take up much space! Transfer your pics to CD's to get them off your computer or get another hard drive.

Whoa, Dave....that 320GB disk should hold a ton of pics.

I haven't checked out any pics yet, either!~
