DC cam 1 at this time has 2 pandas and we know who is picking on who????
Baby Luney is on the cam now, on his back.

Good morning. Beakspeak has a new homepage.
WOW....they sure do, Ceil, thanks.
Guess I will have to put a wreath around my seal avatar
New look is great:)
looking for a hat for Tai:)
Helen I forgot to take mini animal crackers for the girls. Will bring them tomorrow.
Give him Maggie or Molly's hat. He would look great in it.
Good morning my friends. Hope all is well with you today. I am getting better each day and really grateful for that. Prayer is an awesome thing. My email and internet have been down for the past few days but they are supposed to have it fixed today. I am at Sissy's right now. You all will not believe this but Sissy twisted her ankle pretty bad this morning and is now on her way to the ER. Please pray that all is okay with her. And the hits just keep on coming!!
Morning, Sharon....who is going to fix dinner tomorrow:)...She'll be OK she can hobble around the kitchen...wish you lived closer.
I think we need to wrap you all in bubble wrap in Bluefield. Sure hope her ankle is not going to bother her too much.Good morning, everyone.
yes, Ceil. because we know Maggie won't wear hers:)
Message from Pook about the moose:A bull and a cow arrived this morning. I believe this is Bull #4 from last winter . He has a hole through the middle of his right antler. Looks like a bullet hole to me. (sigh) Well I’m glad it missed his body! I did find a moose carcass this summer while hiking. I presume it was shot because someone had sawed off the antlers. At the moment the two single cows appear to be getting along. The cow with calf didn’t show up yesterday, at least not during daylight.
Pook, must have been mad when she saw the dead carcass:(
Sharon behave. Even though you are feeling better do not do anything that will give you a set back. Had to tie Helen down a few times. She made me nervous trying to do things.
Such a shame to kill an animal just for the antlers.
yes, but I didn't go out and about, like somone I know:)
I better get started. Lots to do. Have a good day everyone.
I told her if she was trying to get out of cooking dinner tomorrow, it was not going to work. We have to have turkey dinner tomorrow, even if she has to do it from a wheelchair! ☺It is just so crazy but it is all going to be okay. I had Mattie and Justin with me yesterday and they are back today. It is so good spending time with Justin because I don't get to see him a lot since they moved. Watching rasslin' bears at the NZ and a gorgeous little boy in Atlanta. Is our cam still down? I feel so out of the loop. The past couple of weeks is a big fog for me.
You are right. You did behave for the most part.
Yeah, been out and about a few times but trying to take it easy now. Going in now to take a modified shower. They won't let me shower until I get my drains out. Be back in a little while.
yes Sharon it is....looks like it will be down til they go and do the improvements Steve talked about a couple of days ago
Sharon they are going to clean the lens.
fish crow at BWO
Think I have Margy syndrome. LOLGoing for sure now.
Sharon , I just sent you what Steve wrote the other day, when you finish your shower
eagle just flew in and out at caltran
eagle at CALTRAN
Working hard with the sticks
resting now, looking around...
Glad to see that Sharon is on today, but didn't like the news about Sissy. I swear, when it rains, it pours.
I thought i had fixed the Caltrans thing where it shuts everything down, but no, just had to reopen everything.
poof at Caltran
well Candy, they have had a monsoon in Bluefield lately
Josh and I had a very nice day just looking around and doing some shopping. He took me to the Christmas Shop (Hedgie, it is the same Christmas Shop that you went to that was closed. They couldn't sell it, soooo the opened it again. Not the same as the old one yet tho. Not much nice inventory like used to be thee and a lot filled in with "old" dishes, and cubbards, etc.) Hopefullly they will get it back to the wonderland that it used to be, and it still felt like we kept tradition just looking it over. They used to have some big sales in another part of the building at Thanksgiving time too. We also have a Christmas Mouse on the main bypass in Nags Head, right by the town line, but the Christmas Shop in Manteo was always the one we went to.
I was out trying to find some good Xmas avatars and get them to work like you all were doing yesterday. I used to be agle to make them move too, but the only ones I can get to appear are the ones I have stored on my computer. Boo Hoo. I'll keep at it.James took all our food we brought home from the son's MIL and took it to an elderly lady that we are close to. He is cooking our turkey in the over as he is out playing golf with Josh today. Big problem, never told me when it was to be taken out AND he is finally trying to cook it in the bag! Yea, no mess.
Now that I have written 2 chapters of a book, I'm off to look at more avatars. BBL
Morning all.Poor Sissy.....when it rains it pours...hoping that it isn't broken...of course, sometimes sprains take longer to heal than fractures. How did she do it, Sharon? Glad you are feeling better..just take it slow, girlfriend!Candy, had heard that they were asking for an absolute fortune for the Christmas Shoppe...no wonder no sale! Don't remember seeing The Christmas Mouse...when did it open? I went to one of them in Myrtle many years ago...got all my bird ornaments there!If you find a good site for avatars, let me know, please! Not happy w/ what I've found!
Good Sunny Saturday Morning my friendsIt looks Christmasy on here - beautiful!
Well, let's try this one...animation shows on profile page...let's see...
Works! But looks kind puny so small!
Well, back to the salt mines....cleaning, and finishing decorating--except for tree. Leave for Missouri on Thurs. for a week....retiree luncheon on Tues. Feel like I am running out of time!
Lynn just goggle Christmas avatars or gifs, you will see thousands of holiday ones.
Sissy was walking to the car to go to the store and stepped off the edge of the sidewalk. She said if the car hadn't been sitting there, she would have done a face plant into the gravels. I just talked to her and the doc just came in the room so hopefully we will know something soon.
Mits you have mail
Well, I got cleaned up. I had the brilliant idea that I was going to wear my jeans today. Not a good idea. Oh well, just put on a pair of Andrew's pajama bottoms. They feel much better!
Those puppies are going haywire!With all the new running room they are jumping for joy!
SHARON, DEAR...don't worry about the looks of your clothes...get comfy. NO BLUE JEANS...NOT A GOOD IDEA..NO, NO, NO!
One time, Sissy had a broken ankle and was on crutches. She went walking through the house on her crutches and hit her good foot on the leg of the bed and broke 2 toes. Ended in up a wheelchair. She is the most graceful in the family! :)
Sissy thought it was a bad idea about the jeans too but I just had to prove it to myself. Maybe a little hard-headed? Naw, that couldn't be it. ☺
What is Caltran?
Sharon...sweats for a long time....nothing binding around the middle...
thanks, Paula got it:)
One needs a drink, they all need drinks. Puppy checking out the cam.
Sharon, just sent it to Sissy's mail...can you access it?
also sent it to your mail, when it gets fixed.
That puppy is determined to get the cam, now two of them.
Sharon - comfy casual Even sloppy looking is OK
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dloT8Ldif4IWhen you get a chance, go watch this video. It is so cool. God's Christmas Eagle.
Deb - the pole down the middle of the puppies' bed - do you think that is where the cam is?
Yeah, sloppy-looking for sure but it is all good. I like sloppy, loose-fitting clothes anyway. Just getting tired of sweats all the time.
That was very good, Sharon.
The cam must be behind it, I think. They were sticking their heads passed the pole.
Human Dad in the puppies' pen..I saw him late last evening as he sat with them for a long time. He was clipping their nails.
The puppies run and they bounce like they have springs on their feet...
Mits, I got it but it says "bad request" and won't play.
Update for Mason - it's short so I'll just bring it over Happy Belated Turkey Day!We've had a rock'in weekend and Mason seems to be responding well to all the love, energy, music, & peeps surrounding him. We've had a full house for the past couple days. It's been great! Mason has been tracking so well. Sometimes he very very slightly moves his head to look. (That's right Mase, exercise those neck muscles) He has given a couple more thumbs up too.There is much to be thankful for ~ we don't need a holiday to remind us of that, we are reminded every day.Enjoy some Thxgiving leftovers!<3 the ellsworths
poor turkey being attacked by puppies....
even from the blog post, Sharon?
Human Dad in the puppy pen
that was really cool, Sharon:)!!!
Puppy had great idea of the different colored collars.... Even if you can't pronounce their names you know if they are male or female.It's like you once suggested about our eagles having colored wing blings or head/neck bands.. lol
Out of here to find some lunch...Hope we soon find out about SissyBBL
I put different color collars on my puppies, too.Sharon, you may need to uninstall, then reinstall quicktime player. The newest version is 7.5.5
Think the moosies are all gone
OK, gotta go stuff the bird...BBL
beautiful sunny day at snowman cam...
OMGOUR CAM IS UP!!!
Going home now. If they have my internet fixed, I will be back on in a minute. If not, I will blog with you later!
LIVE VIDEO UP ALSO!!!
Thank you Mr Sunshine!!
wow....how cool!!!!!Thanks for the update, Paula, now go stuff your bird:)
Cape Coral osprey cam is up again, too. It is our day!!
looks like alot of work has been done on CC osprey nest.
just got my snowman from the snowman cam...it is adorable...:)
Yes, it does, Helen, and the big bunch of grass that was hiding the osprey has been weighed down with sticks. Hopefully we will be able to see the osprey better now.
Somewhere in the grass is a burrowing owl nest:Burrowing owl cam
Good afternoon!! Yeah, I am slow. Been taking it easy this morning. Need to get with decorating but Jack is watching GT/Georgia game, so I will not be able to budge him. Guess I will just work on putting some toys away.Can not get the Caltran cam. It gives me the message that I am missing some quick time software and sorry but it is not available from their web site. ??????I have QT and it works else where.
You have to have the newest version of Quicktime for it to work, 7.5.5.
You can get it here:Quicktime
The only way I can view Caltran is through Internet Explorer. Beautiful shot of an eagle right now.
Yeah rah! Internet is back and I am reconnected to the world!
Nice eagle at Caltran and one at BWO
WOW PaulaThanks for heads up on our LIVE FEEDUp/Running.Of course now we need the flyingeagles to make an appearance.....
Glad to have you on again, Sharon.Lie down and rest!Did hobbles get home yet?
Puppy Update (sort of long but hard to find on their site)[Nov 29] Not sure if anyone scrolls down this far but we wanted to update that we'll be taking the pups back out to a couple parks (new textures to feel under foot), shopping malls (new people and smells!) and even the beach today (so that they can experience what sand feels like). Apologies in advance because they won't be on camera (I wish we owned a digital video camera to capture it all for everyone!).Also, a few people have been asking about when the pups will start leaving our home. Sorry to say that the first couple pups will likely start going to their new homes next weekend.Do note that my wife and I *have* decided to keep one of the litter (yay!) so we'll likely have the webcam positioned in different rooms so you can tune in and watch the pup grow. =)And finally, regarding Ustream... the founders have generously offered to give each of the pups new owners a webcam. While we'd like to thank John and Brad for their offer we would like to point out that acceptance will be up to the decision of each individual owner. There are privacy and other concerns that each owner needs to think about before embarking on such a decision.
Bird is cooking.... 1/2 the floor is drying...break time!
Deb - question for you.I can't use safari now to view our nest...it keeps wanting to use quicktime...any clue what file type the flash player uses? Or how do you have your safari set?
Crap, I meant firefox
no mistaken what that sound just was at the nest....gunfire
eagle still at CALTRAN
Paula, I use Safari--the mac browser, not Firefox. Let me try it in Firefox and see what happens.
I was just going to type that I couldn't either when it finally opened. It is that same as in Safari for me. Mine uses Adobe Flash Player 9, in both Firefox and Safari.
they have moved the cam position at RDHC
eagles at BWO and Caltran
BWO eagle with a fish!
BWO eagle left and one just came in with a big fish
big crowd down at Ocean City Boardwalk again today:)
both eagles at CALTRAN
WELL she just stayed a minute.poof
I upgraded my flash to version 10, maybe that the problem. But I also upgraded quicktime, and it gives me that error like I had w/ Caltrans, although it's upgraded. And it doesn't even use quicktime.Stupid browser.
Both eagles at BWO
Don't get any signal just a black screen on RDHC's cam now.
Deb thanks! I downloaded the new verion of QT and now can see the eagle at Caltran.
Good day outside and I am so happy that hubby & son just finished theoutside Christmas lights! They will lookd beautiful when wecome home from Mass.
eagle on the branch now at Caltran....Jo I'm still getting RDHC lots of apples on the ground.
I now have a new problem. I can not delete my avatar. ??????
Lolly, Santa wants to stay;)
little bit of snow on moose cam.
Yeah, Santa wants to stay. Looks like he will be here next July as well. Lovely!
Eagle at Caltrans Cam out of nest on a branch looking around. Back to us.
It truly was a black screen for me for awhile.... Now I can see APPLESand just a little bird off to the right
Lolly, you have to right click on delete image, and say open. Answer yes if you want to navigate away from page. Then click on delete image again, and it will let you load a different one.
Getting ready for church - 1st Sun of Advent I just realized...BBL this evening
Wow, first time I heard a gunshot...now 2...really loud!!
Now an airplane
Goldfinch at Okie, and it still has most of its color !Good Hello Afternoon to all, and so nice to wake up to a working Eagle Cam ! xoxo Time to read posts, be back in a few...xoxo ! ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺ ☺
Oh wow and a chickadee too !
Mooooooooooo at NCTC
Okay - lots of news and info on here today...will have to deal with all the Quick time stuff Monday when I am off....gotta see those Caltran Eagles !All these new Holiday avatars are great!
Can't wait 'til Loretta discovers that our live and still feeds are back up !
Sharon and Sissy: Good thing I have lots of get-well cards to send !! I sure hope everything will turn out okay...and keep yourself with a good supply of those sweat pants and pajama bottoms Sharon....enjoy the comfort ! And Please: How is our T-Bird ?
Oh I'm dying, red-bellied, cardinal and chickadee all at Okie! Could life be sweeter?Just waiting on OUR Eagles now....xox ♥
Boo-Coo apples at RHDC - should be fun ! Hedgie: Like that avatar, hope you keep it! How are we going to survive with you away for a week ???? Might want to think about having your yahoo or something or other de-activated like Lolly and the others did when they were traveling...
I think it's a stretch unless you have a good South west horizon view tonight: But that newborn moon is going to be trying to peek out, and then tomorrow, sad to say, probably too many clouds to see it.....but it will be showing up soon! And we have our beautiful Venus (lower and brighter) and Jupiter (higher and little less bright) together tonight....xoxo ♥
Evening birds doing their go to bed chirping at NCTC - -
Margy there is a black cap chickadee, was a woodpecker, female finch and beautiful male cardinal on the Okie cam now.
Sorry Margy see you got it. Probably I saw what you did. My blogging page is slow. Everything else ok. Closed it down back up still slow. Oh well it had to happen to me sometime lol
sweet sounds from NCTC nest...:)
another gunshot at nest.
don't blame the eagles if they don't want to stop by.
Hi Dana - Hi MITS - Yes love those sounds at NCTC - I think some of those sounds are actually Starlings, and I am trying to ID the others...what I want to hear is Eagle Sounds though!Okie is a smorgasbord for the eyes this afternoon, many of my favorite birds, just saw TitMouse too....!
And Spidey Web just made its official evening appearance !
Catching up again before moving on to next chore.Margy, I am going to miss you all so much! Mom doesn't have a computer, sis has only dial-up, and daughter is takig laptop but no way for her to connect to frontiernet as she has to leave modem w/ jubby...Missouri may not have it anyway. So...I will go through withdrawal! Don't know how to disable yahoo; can set an away message on AOL. Guess I'll just have to do alot of deleting!!Still no word on Sissy???? ER=hurry up and wait!
this time of night is usually the best time to watch Okie nest...definitely starlings sounds and gunshots
Ran out for a little while and did a quick hand-off/exchange w/ Bill...we're like passing ships in the night! Had to borrow holster from him...I don't travel w/o my piece! Ran into KMart and found a nice Christmas shirt to wear for luncheon, and got a few more tree ornaments to match the ones I got last year...they didn't have many, but I got all that they had!So now I am truly finished shopping.
Hedgie Mema can probably help you with the Yahoo thing..I think she did it for Lolly.Take some of your Website addresses with you...you can find an internet cafe or library somewhere maybe ?? Please ?? For Us ? xoxo ♥
more shots fired.
I was horrified about Pook finding the Moose carcass...it's like the Gorillas being killed for their paws....God certainly has his hands full with the human population on this planet !
Took a call last night, a Bear ran into the side of a car on our Rt 9 West not far from the back creek bridge, bear ran off, people had damage to their car.And the other morning, Thanksgiving day, took a call from someone, that reported that overnight someone stole his son's hunting clothing off the clothesline, and pulled up a heavy duty dog chain and the stake out of the ground! This is not nice!
some people are just weird, Margy...
should be coming in any time now,,,:)
I'm sure that was a heartbreaker for Pook. So senseless.Hope the bear wasn't injured, Margie! Did DNR go looking for it?My favorite DNR story is this: a girl in my gd's class told her dad, who is a game warden, about a little boy telling about the deer his dad got in April! Needless to say, he got caught!!!
Well, enough play time...back to work I go....still have another few forays under eaves to retrieve some decorations--my knees are so sore!--and then to put the empty boxes back. Should have carpeted it back in there!! BBL.
good story, Lynn:)
The last bird I heard - at NCTC - I think was a wren, maybe Carolina wren...my sound ID's are rusty, gotta get out in the REAL outdoors to hear and see more...Waiting on our Eagles, I agree MITS should be any time now, just about the time I gotta find the Fairy! ♥
That's a good idea, Margy...will do that...there's always the library!
I am sorry - there is word on Sissy. Not broken, thank God. She is not supposed to bear weight on it for 3 days. Sorry that I forgot to come on here and tell you all. Getting raady to go out to her house for a minute. BBIALW.
And we still got our lone Eagle at BWO
I'll step away from the computer, that usually works:)
I am off to Freeman for the evening. BBL
she can still cook dinner tomorrow, right , Sharon...lol... I know she will slap me for that remark...:)
Please keep that avatar Hedgie! Reminds me of a Moose...And yours is a beaut too Dana...Speaking of collections, someday I will count all the Moose things in my living room.....it's quite a bunch !Got to get dressed, will be watching THE NEST xo
have a nice time, Deb.
SPLIT COMING UP...
HEAR THE COWS:)
