GOOD MORNING STEVE...I'LL GET THE GANG.

ceil said...

Thanks Steve. Great pic

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks for getting me, ya'll!! Thanks Steve.

Costume Lady said...

Sorry Ceil...I stepped all over you. Are you two ladies feeling better?

Costume Lady said...

I had to shut this thing down for a while...it was running worse than DIAL UP! Doing better now, but it won't last long. I've tried so many things, but nothing seems to be a permanant fix. I guess I will have to call a repairman.

ceil said...

Morning all. Doing better Wanda Thanks. Congrats new baby Sissy. Of course prayers for him. Just missed the visit. Lots to do today. All have a great one. BBL

floralgirl said...

Howdy all:) Wanda you just need a computer geek to help you fix that computer, probably some programs conflicting with each other or something else in you computer slowing it down. There is a place where you can run diagnostics on your computer yourself to see if you can find the problem...

Costume Lady said...

Sissy, my Karla was born 29 days early and she too, weighed 6lbs 50z. She just a little bit of Jaundice, but lungs were fully developed.
Grandson was 3lbs 5oz and in UVA hospital for 6 weeks (lungs). He is 6ft. tall now and just about to graduate from college and very healthy. It is amazing what they can do in those neonatal units!

Costume Lady said...

Thanks, Megan...where would that be?

Costume Lady said...

SISSY, how's the ankle?

normabyrd said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDDIES!!---Thanks STEVEN for the COOL pic!!---
CONGRATS! WANDA---Our #1 EAGLE MOMMA today & every day!!--MORNIN' WANDA---CEIL---SISSY---& BEAUTIFUL MEGAN!!!----I feel your pain WANDA!---I have been FIGHTING with my computer too!!

floralgirl said...

Go to your start bar and search thru your programs, on mine under accessories and then system tools there are some options , clean up your discs, defragemnt, etc...

Eagle on the Branch at Maine

Good Morning Eagle Buds !

normabyrd said...

SISSY!!---Who had a baby?---I guess I need to read yesterday's blog!!

magpie said...

Make that, WAS on the branch, he pooped and took off....

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Good morning all in eagle land. I did catch a glimpse of our gruesome twosome this morning!

magpie said...

How about a Sea EAgle at Finney's now instead?

magpie said...

Oh, nice, just hunkered down in the nest, maybe will stay for awhile...

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

My ankle is doing better, not swelling as much as it was. I have an appt. with the orthopedist tomorrow. But, since it is doing some better, I may just wait. I don't know, reckon I will see how it is tomorrow. Probably should go since I have waited 2 weeks for the appointment, huh?

floralgirl said...

Yeah Sissy, like they always tell me here- go to the DR!!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MARGY!!---HEY!!--How did the BIRTHDAY PARTY go!!!---I bet the 'BIRTHDAY BOY' had a GREAT time!!!----Maybe I should ask how 'GRANNY' did???---What does he call you??

magpie said...

Congratulations on the new arrival, Sissy, nice way to start the week.

Good to see Just Vicky was on this morning...

magpie said...

That is a nice pic on the page that Steve posted this morning....who is the "author?"
Did one of you guys send that in?

Costume Lady said...

THANKS, MEGAN...I'll give it a try.

Costume Lady said...

SISSY, do go to your appointment...get everything all straightened out before Christmas!

magpie said...

Hi Norma !
The party went really well, we all had a lot of laughs and loving. He calls me "Grammy" - that's my favorite word. He received a Knock Knock joke book, and had us all in stitches. I think he belongs in "theater." He is quite the performer!

xo ♥ ☺

magpie said...

Wanda:

A week or so Deb sent me some emails with some help on cleaining up the computer. I cleared out a few programs I am not using much or at all, and did a defragmentation thing which took a few hours but seems to have helped a lot. I can forward those, or she will probably see all this and send them to you herself. Another thing, I constantly clean out cookies and the temporary files, and when I am away from the computer, I close out everything, esp live cams and the Blog, and then just open back up when I am going to be on there awhile. All that has really helped.

normabyrd said...

SISSY---I am so happy your ankle is better!!----But I think maybe it would be best if you keep your appt.---Then you will be sure!!---& the 'LITTLE PRINCE XI' will be happy too!! ho!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING, NORMA AND MARGY...
Did you sleep in Margy?

magpie said...

Sea Eagle is still at Finney's -
he (or she) is watching for Boats!

magpie said...

Hope everyone continues to feel better and get well....

I'm just zipping past, got a pile of things to do today.

Will "see" you much later on today.

Have a Good Day...Treat yourself like you are royalty if ou can

Time to pull on the bibs, and shake a leg...

TTFN xox ♥

Costume Lady said...

Margy, I would appreciate it if you would send those instructions to me...I'm ready to try anything. I really miss being able to pop in and out at will:(

floralgirl said...

Go to your start menu, find accessories, then sytem tools, then click on disc defragmenter-it cleans up and creates space on your computer..it will run for a long time so do it when you don't want to use computer for a while..

magpie said...

Okay, Wanda...just did. I printed them out so I could plow through it a little, did not do all the instructions, and will go back and do more of it when I have time...you might want to look through them all first and Deb gives some pretty good instructions and cautions on a few of the points.

Sea Eagle Came Back to Nest

normabyrd said...

SISSY!---Just read about little DENVER!!----Prayers for the little one---GOD BLESS!!---

magpie said...

Ditto that Megan... I did the defragmentation when I was headed to bed...took about three hours. Didn't create any new space of course, but speeded things up. And I definitely close out the Blog when I am not here...and just about everything else I have up..I do the disc cleanup about every other day...


Okay, bye for real now...

magpie said...

Gobblers at Pix Pa

normabyrd said...

JO!---I am delighted you stopped in to see SANDY & TOM!!---I think of them often---every morning when I read SNOOPY!!---ho!!---She is such fun---

normabyrd said...

MARGY!---Sounds as if you have a young "SEINFIELD"!!!!---maybe GRAMMY can retire early----ho!---

Costume Lady said...

Eagle Fix on Wild and Wonderful.

Red said...

Wanda, what they are telling you is true. Defragmentation puts files back in order which will let the computer find them faster. You DON'T have to stop using your computer when defrag is running. Things will be a little slower but you can still use your computer at the same time.

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Guess I missed the first visit of the day. Oh well ice and snow all over the place here not going anywhere. Can keep eyes pealed to a few cams. Remember today at some point Norfolk Botanical Garden should be online for their new season

Red said...

Testing

Red said...

Also Wanda, You may need to take your PC to a repair palce and get your registery cleaned. There is lots of free registery cleaners on the internet but the registery is the heart of your computer and should be cleaned by a qualified technician.

deb said...

Wow, if running disc defragmenter takes 3 hours you should be doing it more often. I used to do it about every other month when I had a PC, just to clean it up. It usually told me I didn't need to do it, but I did it anyway.

deb said...

Good morning, everyone. Another cold day here, but the wind isn't that bad today! Just heard the snow plows go by, so I need to see how much damage they did.

deb said...

I should clarify what I said about disc defraging. I guess that just because I didn't like to let it go that long, doesn't mean everyone should. I have no patience, so waiting 3 hours drives me batty!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' AGAIN EAGLE BUDDIES!!---electric went off --- only for a few min---Sooo! HELLO!!--SHARON--RED---GLO--and DEB!! ---GREAT NEWS---GLO!!---Looking forward to seeing the NORFOLK site again!!!

deb said...

Windchill is -30, and I am one of the warmer spots in SD. Regular temp is -8.

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all.

Make it a good day!

normabyrd said...

The DIVERS site is repeating---"THE UNDERWATER CAM WILL BE OPEN BEFORE CHRISTMAS"!!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' PAULA!!---I read you finished your decorating!!---COOL!----How's your MOTHER?---still doing well--I pray---

deb said...

It has updated to today, Norma, but I see it is stuck again.

normabyrd said...

DEB!---Sunny here this morning & 43° warm----Now this WIND has arrived!!---feels much cooler!---Glad you didn't get all that SNOW!!

deb said...

Eagle at BWE.

normabyrd said...

DEB---Yeah!--I read -- HELEN -- said it was on----notice there are no fish!!

normabyrd said...

ALMOST FORGOT???

DALLAS WON LAST NIGHT!!!--BIG TIME!!!


ps--didn't really forget---they have had a rough season----

normabyrd said...

The 'LITTLE PRINCE XI' has learned so much from LUN LUN!!!----He SLEEPS and SLEEPS!!---ho!---Hope we get to see him walk---before they close the live feed!!!

normabyrd said...

SUZANNE says the SDZOO is going to keep little 'PRECIOUS' or 'ZZ' as we call her!!----for a few years!!----Need to double check the time!!
Maybe "she" will make up for our loss of PRINCE XI!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Good Monday Morning All My Eagle Buddies! Glad to hear from you Vicky!
Older grandson, Robert had back surgery today & 1 disc was removed. I want to visit although they could ship him out this evening. I sure hope they keep him a night. He is Alexis' dad.
Sissy, prayers for the new little Riffe guy!

Mits said...

GOOD MORNING AGAIN...Happy Birthday to the newest Riffle....

paula eagleholic said...

Immature eagle at BWO

Mits said...

Wanda, the info, Deb had sent was great...I used some of it, and please if you want your puter fixed, go for a professional.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' HELEN!----Hope you are feeling better!

Mits said...

thanks, Norma trying too...have so much to do, and have lost 4 days feeling puny:)

Red said...

Two deer on the snowman cam

normabyrd said...

GLO---Checked the NORFOLK SITE!!------Can't wait!!---Read they are putting their cam on near by tree!!

Mits said...

ewwiiee just flew into BWO nest

normabyrd said...

HELEN!---I'm so far behind---I try not to think about it!!---I just keep saying--'Will worry about it tomorrow'---IT'S TOMORROW!!---So glad you are feeling better though!!---

Mits said...

deb said...

I agree with Helen and Red. The only thing i recommended doing was the basics, don't do anything that makes you uncomfortable. That's what the experts are there for.

glo said...

Norma They have moved the cam back to the old nest tree. It is already there. Waiting for it to be turned on through WVEC. They had said today. You can watch a video fo the relocation here
Eaglecam relocation video"

Mits said...

It was great Deb, I learned what I could take out of my add and remove files....and what not to touch:)

Mits said...

goosie on the snowman cam has her clothes back on:)

Mits said...

guess they have had rain at snowman cam, that is why the level of snow has gone down

Red said...

Deb, I have all the diagnostic software here on disk. I have special defraggers and register cleaners that I used when I was working. but showing someone how to do something is a lot different than trying to tell them on a blog or chat room. I could link to Wanda on the internet but I still couldn't run anything on her PC.

Mits said...

eagle at BWO, with fish

Mema Jo said...

I thought someone was shoveling Mrs Goose out of the snowbank!

Was just at Post Office - they are out of Christmas stamps Just went for the Black Eyed Susan! It surprised me because I haven't been getting very many cards this year - Economy!

It's still going to be a Blessed
Christmas for all of us!

Mema Jo said...

Going over to hospital with my son to see his son - surgery went very well.
Robert called to say Hi and that the leg pain is gone!
I'm sure they'll ship him out as soon as they get him up moving around..

Mits said...

good news Jo:)

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Hello Mits and Mema Jo. I am working today. The doc let me start back as tolerated.

deb said...

Yes, Red, you have to have access to the computer to do a lot of the fixes. I only know the basics and the longer away from PC's the more you forget.

Mema Jo said...

Good for you Gal!
You're getting back to where you want to be!
Thinking of you! ♥

paula eagleholic said...

2 eagles at BWO..oops one just left

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, he's back at BWO

Glad to hear the pain is gone for GS, Jo.

Mits said...

that is a step in the right direction, Sharon:)

Mits said...

eagle at BWE..

Mits said...

Don't know what it is eating?

Scientist says he has found oldest spider web AND IT IS NOT AT NCTC:)

By RAPHAEL G. SATTER
Associated Press Writer






















LONDON (AP) -- The tiny tangled threads of the world's oldest spider web have been found encased in a prehistoric piece of amber, a British scientist said Monday.

Oxford University paleobiologist Martin Brasier said the 140-million-year-old webbing provides evidence that arachnids had been ensnaring their prey in silky nets since the dinosaur age. He also said the strands were linked to each other in the roughly circular pattern familiar to gardeners the world over.

"You can match the details of the spider's web with the spider's web in my garden," Brasier said.

The web was found in a small piece of amber picked up by an amateur fossil-hunter scouring the beaches on England's south coast about two years ago, Brasier said. A microscope revealed the existence of tiny threads about 1 millimeter (1/20th of an inch) long amid bits of burnt sap and fossilized vegetable matter.

While not as dramatic as a fully preserved net of spider silk, the minuscule strands show that spiders had been spinning circle-shaped webs well into prehistory, according to Simon Braddy, a University of Bristol paleobiologist uninvolved with the find.

"It's not a striking, perfect web," Braddy said. "(But) this seems to confirm that spiders were building orb webs back in the early Cretaceous" - the geological term for the period of time between 145.5 and 65.5 million years ago when dinosaurs and small mammals shared the earth.

Spider experts believe that webs were developed even earlier, but the delicate gossamer threads rarely leave any trace. Amber, or fossilized tree resin, can occasionally conserve bits of web - an earlier find in Lebanon was dated to 130 million years ago, according

Eagle eating at BWE

paula eagleholic said...

I don't recall the nest being that feathery earlier today at BWE - could be a bird, Mits.

deb said...

I am back inside after blowing snow, it is soooo cold out. Long underwear, heavy coat, gloves, boots, hat and scarf and I am still cold.

paula eagleholic said...

Time for some hot tea or soup Deb. And a robe and slippers!

Mits said...

yuke, Deb...stay warm...we are going to be in the upper 30's tomorrow, right now it is 65°

deb said...

Or a hot bath!!

deb said...

We had a temperature change of over 60 from Saturday to Sunday, when you add in the windchill. I heard Denver had a bigger change.

Mits said...

beuatiful big bluejays on okie cam

Mits said...

our cam sounds like a rocket taking off

deb said...

Bonaire underwater cam is up again.

Costume Lady said...

Helen, that is very interesting reading about the web in the piece of amber. Fossils have always fascinated me. One of these days, I'd like to go fossil hunting:)

Mits said...

it is amazing, isn't it, Wanda.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, Gene and I just came in from raking out the flower beds and mowing grass and we came inside to cool off. :) I KNOW, OUR TURN IS COMING :(

Mits said...

love that cam:)

Costume Lady said...

My Dad use to work in the coal mines and one evening brought me home a piece of coal with the fossil of a fern in it. It was so beautiful, I took it to school and my teacher kept it to show others. Never gave it back :(

Costume Lady said...

FONZ FLASH
FROM THE NATIONAL ZOO:

ZooLights, our biggest and brightest event, continues for two more weeks! Come see more than 50 light sculptures featuring many of the Zoo's most popular animals, visit our animals at night, and enjoy live entertainment, keeper talks, photo ops with a giant panda snow globe, and delicious seasonal treats like gingerbread cookies, hot cocoa, and hot cider. Buy tickets and get ZooLights details.

That would be nice to see the animals at night. So many things to do and so little time.

Mits said...

that is terrible, Wanda, wish you still had it

Mits said...

I'm hoping when the M&M girls are a little older they can come to that event

paula eagleholic said...

Catch ya'll later...

Costume Lady said...

...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH
WEDNESDAY MORNING...

FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH
WEDNESDAY MORNING FOR PORTIONS OF THE POTOMAC HIGHLANDS...NORTH
CENTRAL MARYLAND...THE NORTHERN SHENANDOAH VALLEY AND EASTERN WEST
VIRGINIA.

TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO FALL BELOW
FREEZING BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON...AS PRECIPITATION BECOMES MORE
WIDESPREAD. ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF AROUND ONE QUARTER INCH WILL BE
POSSIBLE TUESDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT.

A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT
ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE
LATEST FORECASTS...AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION IF WARNINGS ARE
ISSUED.

Costume Lady said...

WOW! I sure did put my foot in my mouth, bragging about the beautiful Spring-like day and working in the yard!

Costume Lady said...

It is still 63° here, it was 68°. Hard to believe travel difficulties tomorrow. Was going to more Christmas shopping :(

Mits said...

my winter storm watch is from Tuesday evening thru Wednesday a.m.....so looks like tomorrow during the day will be ok here

deb said...

Eagle at BWE!

Mits said...

thanks, Deb, had already turned that one off for the night

Mits said...

poof at BWE

Mits said...

ours should be coming in soon if they are going to visit

deb said...

You get such a pretty view at that cam, we should be able to see so much more of the eaglets this year with the way the cam is.

Mits said...

it is a great view

Mits said...

EAGLE

deb said...

Eagle alert!!

Mits said...

LOOKS LIKE lib

deb said...

BOTH!!

Mits said...

BOTH

Mits said...

SIRENS

deb said...

Both eagles at Caltrans also.

Costume Lady said...

Sirens going by my house now. Lots of them!

deb said...

Both gone!

Mits said...

well that was short and sweet...

Costume Lady said...

That's all folks....

Mits said...

I can hear them

deb said...

I hope your storms are not bad that are headed your way. I don't have any warnings or watches out, just some snow forecast.

Costume Lady said...

Firetruck stopped in front of our house (I had gone out to see what was going on) Asked if we smelled propane. No! See photo on JUST FOR FUN:)

Mits said...

cute driver, huh, Wanda:)

Costume Lady said...

Yes, he was very cute...a combination of Mario Lopez and Michael, our infamous waiter;) Wish I had asked to take his picture...didn't want to push my luck...Gene was 10ft away from me. LOL

Costume Lady said...

I swear, I must be crazy...that camera is a dangerous weapon in my hands.:):):)

Red said...

My lips are sealed. lol

Lolly said...

Hi All! I am sitting in my recliner with my feet up and sending you this message on my new laptop. Yay!!!! No longer will I have to wait for Jack to get off the computer. And, I can email while traveling. This is fun!

Yesterday it was 68, this morning it was 28. I think DEB left her freezer door open. I went shopping today and brrrrr it was cold! Possible icy roads in the morning. That is okay, I plan to bake in the morning and I will have a fire to help the coffee cakes to rise.

Okay, Wanda, it is your turn to get a laptop for traveling. :)

Lolly said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Red said...

You can say that again. lol

Lolly said...

Having a bit of difficulty learning how to use this compputer. LOL Oh, well!

Red said...

Eagle alert. Eagle alert!!!

Our nest

Red said...

Gone. poof

Red said...

That was so fast I didn't even have time to figure out who it was

Red said...

Well now I'm about to change my mind about that not being Spidey's web cause it sure looks like it now. He must have been wearing his long underwear some even though it's not needed today.

Red said...

Mrs Red just called and is on her way home. Time for the cook to get busy. Bye for now.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Well, Red, I missed your eagle alert.

Costume Lady said...

LOLLY, I would love to have a Lap Top, but I do have reservations about them. I'm of the impression that you can only use them in certain locations. Correct me, someone if that is not the case.???
(I mean when you are traveling)

Mits said...

Wanda, Bev brought hers to WVA

Costume Lady said...

Well, Helen, those Bluefield girls are so smart, they could figure out how to get a 'puter to work on the moon!!

Mits said...

yes, they could:)

Costume Lady said...

I don't think we have heard fro Lynn today. I hope she isn't feeling worse.
MARGY, we are missing you. You must be REALLY busy today.

Lolly said...

Wanda, many of the RV parks have WIFI connections. Deb was posting pictures on hers after we visited the nest in WV. It is going to be a learning experience for us.

Costume Lady said...

Maybe Deb will be on later and enlighten us about the accessability of the use of a Lap Top.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Hello beautiful eagle people. I will tell ya about my experience with my laptop. Almost every hotel/motel has a free wireless internet connection. I also have a wireless card through my cell phone company. It is not as fast as at home or in the hotel/motel but if I have a cell phone signal I usually have a connection for my computer. I even have a signal out on the lake sometimes.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

I love mine. I use it both at home and anywhere else I go.

Mema Jo said...

Hello I'm Back! I've been with gs & son since 3:30 - He just got released
& we took him home. He is doing great but just hope now he doesn't overdo. Couldn't get released until his pee bottle was filled! lol
It is still up in the 60° range but it is drizzling rain. Guess that cold front is on it way!
Hope the afternoon & evening has gone well for all - I haven't read all comments but I see that Lap Top is being discussed!

paula eagleholic said...

Yup, Wanda, you can pick up a wireless connection just about anywhere. My son picks up the neighbors...and gets on the internet with his laptop that way...shhhhh

paula eagleholic said...

Hmmm Red, wonder what made them come into the nest that late...must have been above it!

paula eagleholic said...

Spidey must have played hidey inside the cam casing....that sure is his web!!

Red said...

Wanda, Vicky has a wireless card that operates like a cell phone. Last year when she and Glo came to the open house, I chatted with Glo on it as they drove down the highway. I was impressed as we only lost connection when they got into the Pennsylvania/West Virginia mountains.

Mema Jo said...

Going to call it a day. Hope the bad weather holds off a while longer - not sure we're going to be that lucky.

Good Night Everyone
Peace to you & yours
Prayers for everyone's needs being
said

((hugs)) ♥

Mits said...

how was your Mom, Paula?

paula eagleholic said...

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

paula eagleholic said...

OK today Mits...a little tired and not too hungry, but otherwise in good spirits!

Mits said...

its raining here...58°

Mits said...

will, keep her in my prayers, Paula

hedgie said...

Evening, folks. Better late than never. It's been one of those days! Errands, company, phone calls, workman, headache, allergic reaction, etc.! Didn't forget about you all. See that Miss Vicki dropped in this am...but she disappears as fast as our eagles!
All this computer talk....wish I had a laptop and a wireless connection....daughter does, but only through Frontier, and don't think it's a very widespread service.
Wanda, heard the siren activities....fire alarm at NCTC--apparently false, TG! And on your road, 300 "block",a "lost" propane tank on the side of the road,leaking gas.

hedgie said...

Sharon, glad you feel up to working. Sissy, PLEASE keep your apptmt. tomorrow!
Jo, so glad GS is doing so well. Make him behave!

hedgie said...

Deb, hope you are snuggled in warm and dry! Lolly, isn't it unusual for you all to get that low a temp?

Costume Lady said...

Thanks for that reminder, Red, that Glo and Vicky traveled with the Lap Top. I guess it must be pretty much like the cell phone...not a good signal in the mountains. Last February, when we were out west, and the awning came loose again on our motor home, we couldn't get a signal on th cell to call for help. We do travel a lot in remote areas and that is what concerned me. But we don't have to be on the 'puter all the time...we could wait til we were near a city with a good signal. OH, SANTA;)

hedgie said...

Did everyone go to bed? Margy? Jim? Anybody out there?

paula eagleholic said...

Night, all!!

Costume Lady said...

Glad you checked in Lynn...now we need to hear from Margy. I think she said she didn't have to work for a few days, but had a lot of work to do. I'M HOLLERING AT YOU MARGY!!!!!!Check in before you turn in for the night.

hedgie said...

Spidey must have taken his web back in! Don't see anything bad on the cam!!

hedgie said...

There you are Wanda!
Goodnight, Paula!

Costume Lady said...

Glad they found the propane tank...the driver of the firetruck looked distraught because he couldn't find it:)

hedgie said...

Gotta tell ya', Wanda, if you--or anyone else--ever has problems w/ blossoms and allergies...stay away from the DAWN detergent w/ the fragrance beads in the bottom of the bottle (on the outside). Really potent--had to set it outside! Achoo!!!

Costume Lady said...

Jo, glad you grandson got his bottle filled...that is sooo hard
to do right after surgery :(
He'll be good as new in no time.

hedgie said...

Wonder if they ever found out what gas company lost the tank??

hedgie said...

Going to say night-night, Wanda dear. Bet and the Captain are worn out after your yard work in the wind...glad you didn't blow away! Sleep tight, see you in the morning light!

Costume Lady said...

I do use Dawn, Lynn, but I don't know if it has blossoms in it or not. I do sneeze every morning when I walk into the kitchen. It's probably from my dusty floor! Gotta take care of that!
Getting another weather alert...

Costume Lady said...

LOOK FOR A MIXED BAG OF PRECIPITATION...WITH FREEZING RAIN...
SLEET...AND SNOW ALL POSSIBLE. SNOW AND ICE ACCUMULATIONS CAN BE
EXPECTED...WITH SNOW AND SLEET MORE PREVALENT NEAR THE
PENNSYLVANIA BORDER. LATER FORECASTS WILL PIN DOWN PRECIPITATION
TYPE AND AMOUNTS.
Starting Tuesday at 6am into Wednesday morning...Alert

Costume Lady said...

Yard work was fun...we will probably feel it in the morning:):)

GOOD NIGHT EVRYONE
SWEET DREAMS
PRAYERS

magpie said...

Sigh....Missed everyone once again...

I am going back to read about what everyone is all about since I bailed out early Monday morning...

magpie said...

... Maybe I didn't miss Everyone....

magpie said...

Well, maybe Jim will pop in one time, or Lolly...

I did only the things that I could understand with the diagnostics helpers that Deb sent me...I had never done defragmenting in the
3-1/2 years I have had this baby. So it was much needed...

Is it coincidence? I noticed a distinct slow-down difference when the new NCTC site was configured.

I'll holler at everyone in the morning....want to hear more about Baby Denver, and Sissy: don't you even think about missing that doctor's appointment !!

Love, Peace, and Prayers xo ♥

magpie said...

NatureNut, Dana, Candy-missed you Monday, and Ceil musta had a ton of things to take care of too....
We're due for a visit from Anne-Marie too, and we need to hear how our California Buds are faring with the heavy rains out that way... Jim??? what say ?

It would be great to see EVERYONE on here all in one day !!

x o

Hi Margy, Still cam is little better. Did you have a Panda nap?
I was out & about part of yesterday, got home, ate dinner & passed out in lounge chair! Got up about 2 AM. Am in big trouble time wise---2 parties today-lunch & dinner, but need to wrap more out of town stuff.So,guess I'll have to do that now & get another Panda nap!All this takes the joy out of Xmas! ☺

Nothing in Finland, PA, or Snowman Cam.

Howdy Nature Nut... Yes, I guess Panda Nap describes it, and I will surely need another one before too long....think OUR CAM is kaplooie, went down sometime between 1 and 4 am I guess, noticed it on one of my sleepwalking trips...

Yes, the rush-rush and time crunches make it hard to be serene right about now...You Take Care!
