Thank you Steve for the new thread.

wvgal_dana said...

Red do you have plans for a New Years celebration?

Red said...

No Dana. Might go to BIL's place and play Mexican Train dominios. Instead of partying all night like I used to, I've calmed down a bit. LOL

Red said...

Time for me to find some breakfast. BBL

SEA EAGLES AT FINLAND

wvgal_dana said...

CC looks a little foggy

wvgal_dana said...

Don't know but this has probably already been put on comments. In case not:

CAS's Osprey CAM (the first in Connecticut) will resume live coverage of our Osprey nesting platform at Milford Point on March 9, 2009.

This was the site where the Osprey had the Blue Teddy Bear. Then the next season the blue cloth.

wvgal_dana said...

Yes Mits two beautiful Sea Eagles. The one closes to cam looks big. Don't know if that is female. Maybe it just looks big because it is close to cam.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good Tuesday morning to RED, HELEN, DANA, NORMA, AND SLEEPING MARGY! It looks like a sunny day here today too.
Doesn't sound as if we have had a visit yet to our nest. I was afraid that I missd them, getting up so late.

normabyrd said...

DANA!---Must start watching the DIVERS' SITE!!----DEB sent me a pic from yesterday & they were near the window---going away!!---

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Candy

carolinabeachmom said...

normabyrd said...

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA Don't get too excited about UNC yet. They haven't started playing any games within our ACC division yet. AND then there is always Duke :( Thanks for the excitement tho. :) Time will tell if we can hold onto #1. There are a lot of good teams out there.

wvgal_dana said...

I just heard something near our mic

normabyrd said...

normabyrd said...

DANA---Haven't seen DONKEYS for several days!!---Must be vacationing?

wvgal_dana said...

I just checked on the donkey too Norma. Came back and seen your post. Hummmm where did those donkeys go??? Maybe to the Christ Child for the Christmas Scenes and not back yet??

Mits said...

both eagles now at BWE

carolinabeachmom said...

Thanks HELEN for the good weather report for our eagles. Hopefully, that will be a good start for their New Year 2009. Good weather brings good things happening.

carolinabeachmom said...

Now there are two eagles in BWE nest. Where are our special pair today?

wvgal_dana said...

Fish crow at BWO

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA That something was the wind. :) :) It sounds as if it is really blowing yet up there.

wvgal_dana said...

It sure is Candy you can see the branches moving. If they fly in they will get a new hair do.

carolinabeachmom said...

Two eagles at CC

deb said...

Good morning, everyone! Two osprey at CC. Maybe we will have a little more action today, with eggs soon!

wvgal_dana said...

Ok someone might have to leave for them to come in.
So I'll go get a cup of coffee. bbiaw

carolinabeachmom said...

Come on Liberty and Belle, Where are you two and what are you two up to?

carolinabeachmom said...

good morning DEB. I just posted two eagles and then looked at them and saw I was mistaken. I was just getting ready to print a retraction, when you verified it for me. :)

deb said...

My uncle had to have emergency surgery last night. He had a clot on each lung and something on his spine(that's all I know at this point). Immediately after surgery he couldn't move his arms or legs. I am hoping that has changed now, but it is only 6 AM there so I probably won't get an update for a while.

wvgal_dana said...

back
No eagles our nest yet. Well that didn't work.

Good Morning Deb ... sorry to hear about your Uncle. Sending prayers up for him and family.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb where does your Uncle live?

deb said...

He lives in Scottsdale, AZ.

deb said...

I just checked and they are only one hour different, but will wait for a call rather than wake them if they are sleeping this morning.

wvgal_dana said...

My husband had 3 blood clots in lung. They put him in the hospital and started meds right away. But he didn't have to have surgery. Must be something different with your Uncle. I certainly hope and pray all things went well and your Uncle is doing good. Let us know Deb.

Mits said...

Deb, prayers for your uncle:).

wvgal_dana said...

Is he on your Moms side or your Dads side?

Mits said...

eagle still at BWE in the nest cup

carolinabeachmom said...

Oh gosh DEB, I am very sorry to hear about your uncle. Hope he is doing much better when you contact them this morning. I will keep your uncle and his family in my prayers for a recovery.

NatureNut said...

Morning Everyone! See I didn't miss our gang yet.
Deb, sorry to hear about your uncle--prayers to him & family.

My avatar is supposed to flicker, but won't do it here :>(
Gotta leave for little while--The Birds will come! Plz HOLLER!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Loretta...I'm sure someone will give out the eagle alert.

wvgal_dana said...

tv at BWO

deb said...

Dana, he is on my mom's side. I don't know any details at all, so the surgery could have just been on the spine. I will just have to wait for details.

wvgal_dana said...

now we have 2 tv's at BWO

deb said...

Thanks, for all the prayers, hopefully the movement will return when the swelling goes down??

wvgal_dana said...

now 3 tv's at BWO is beginning to be a party there

carolinabeachmom said...

Two eagles at a dark West End nest.

hedgie said...

Morning all. No visit this am, huh? Our pair must be hunkering down to stay out of this crazy wind!
Had my own little version of "The Birds" this am...getting wood off woodpile and and a small flock of fighting titmouses (?titmice?) came swooping under the deck. Felt like a wing brushed my hair...think I scared them as much as they scared me! They flitted in and out of chain link fencing for a moment and then continued to fly and fight down to the corn feeder.....crazy birds!
Deb, hope your uncle is doing better today...prayers, of course!

wvgal_dana said...

Candy are they using Neokast to see it with?

NatureNut said...

Tried to check our Babylanta & they say, "cam is offline"!!!!
BOO--FIX IT, PLZ!!

Mits said...

Loretta it does not come on til 10 o'clock

hedgie said...

Thanks for tip about weatherbug, Paula...I don't use it--I use Ch. 9--but my daughter does, so will relay info to her!

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA It doesn't say it is using Neocast. I coulldn't get that last year.

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning Lynn you feeling better?

wvgal_dana said...

I hear a little bird chripping at WE.

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning Loretta and welcome. Hope you brought your breakfast to the computer, as our Liberty and Belle are keeping us on the edge of our seats waiting. :) DANA left for coffee and that didn't bring them in. The wind has probably got them hunkered down somewhere.

deb said...

DIVER!!

carolinabeachmom said...

DANA Did you get the two eagles at West End yet? They are still there. One was calling awhile ago, but now they are just sitting around.

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Another cold but sunny day here. Hmmm I want to go see eagles but I have to work the overnight tonight. Maybe a few minutes this morning. well time will tell. Still coughing think I was out int he cold air too long yesterday but it was well worth it. I can talk though which is a good thing.

Enjoy your day.

carolinabeachmom said...

NORMA Divers are here. Where are you?

carolinabeachmom said...

deb said...

My back is good today, just wrenched it a little, nothing serious,

normabyrd said...

DEB---I googled the black crowned night heron!!---endangered in IL?--beautiful bird!---

floralgirl said...

Hello all:) did you see this yet??

Mason is out of his coma. He has passed through the phases or levels to self awareness and aware of his surroundings.

He can respond to various commands and we are hoping that he can start to use his voice soon. We are always trying to add to his repertoire. He does get tired of us, you can tell when I'll come into the room, he pretends he's asleep, he always did that anyway.
He and we had lots of visitors this weekend.

Mason's sisters,Theresa and Pat were up, my friend Elizabeth, all musicians, so Mason had music in the morning and afternoon each day. Pat would play things they used to play together and Mason was right there, then Pat would play one of his esoteric things and Mason would check out till Pat moved on to something else. Mason's friends Kyle and Ben came up, we tried to make Kyle play the maraca,(we have only one) to the fiddle jam.

It was fun, thanks for coming up.

We are looking forward to getting out of 2008 and put our energy into 2009.

Have a safe and Happy New Year.

Love and Peace from Paoli, soon to be Love and Peace from Newtown Square.( Our next house)

Lolly said...

Good morning! Wahoo, have my computer back and all the cams. Laptop is great, but I do like my computer. Now today I will work with my pictures.

Deb....prayers for your uncle.

Mema Jo said...

You Go Mason! I had bacon yesterday & couldn't get my mind off of you!!
Just surfed all the cams that are up and read all your comments & my emails. I guess I am ready to go with the flow!

GOOD MORNING
I guess we are about to start a New Year! We have been together for some time now! Maybe we will get some new "birders" like we did last season! All of you are GREAT
You make my mornings worth getting up for!

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' MEGAN!----So much good news about MASON!!---I PRAY that each day of 2009 will bring more improvement----He has been blessed to have such wonderful friends & family caring for him---Wishing you all much LOVE & PEACE!!

Mema Jo said...

Paula - you have an email.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' LOLLY!!---Happy you have your computer back----Now you won't think of football for another year!!---ho!

Mema Jo said...

I am waiting for my daughter to stop by. I'll holler when I leave......

Mema Jo said...

Lun Lun is in the hammock with her little boy!

Mits said...

Saw that Jo, when she climbed in she grabbed him by the ear....ouch!

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE...AND...a good morning it is. I think I am on the road to recovery now. The good Capt. brought me some Immodium yesterday and I am sure it is helping. I wish I had taken it sooner...or maybe not (I am 7 pounds lighter):):) Feel good, but like a Rag Doll.

Mits said...

Wanda, you lucky duck....hubby lost 10 lbs....I was worse than he was....I lost zilch:(

Costume Lady said...

Jo, I have also been thinking about our group, and our Newbies (who aren't so new anymore). Everyone of them have brought something to our blog and lives...Joy, Entertainment, Knowledge, Laughter and much LOVE! What great additions they have brought to our group this year. I LOVE US:):)

movin said...



**GOOD MORNING**

**EVERYONE**

46° This morning in So Cal. It will top 70° at the high point later though.

Hope you are having a good week waiting for the New Year.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Costume Lady said...

Helen, did you have a long bout with bathroom issues? I did for 6 days and didn't have sense enough to ask for Immodium. I am not one to get sick very often and couldn't even think of what might help me.
Speaking of not thinking straight...I must have been a bit delerious. I was just looking at Glo's Glimpses, and saw where, on the 24th of Dec. I wrote: If you look to the left on the frosty picture, you can see a man holdingt a bouquet of ferns and he also has wings. WELL, I, for the life of me cannot see anything even closely resembling that now!;)TEE HEE

Mits said...

turkey is back on snowman cam

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, you have mail.

Costume Lady said...

Good Morning, Jim. How was your Christmas? Family doing well?

Mits said...

roflmbo...Wanda, that flu was something else.....yes it was 6 days....then just felt really washed out after it left, I lost my appetite, but it found me.

normabyrd said...

MORNIN' WANDA & MOVIN'JIM!---Just write down that recipe for losing weight WANDA & you will make millions!!---ho!---Happy you are feeling better!!!

NatureNut said...

This is a few days late, but think it's really good--A Doggy Xmas Surprise----

Mits said...

I have never had a stomach virus last that long in my life, same deal with hubby, good thing we had 2 bathrooms:)

normabyrd said...

MORNIN'JIM!----I answered 2 or 3 of your blogs & when I send it---I get back---WRONG ADDRESS stuff!---Has anyone else noticed that!!

deb said...

I have been on the phone for the last hour and it sounds like my Uncle Bob will not regain use of his legs. Of course we are still hoping for a miracle, especially since 2 of my cousins saw him move his toes just a little. We will just have to wait and see and keep praying for that miracle.

Mits said...

so sorry to hear that, Deb:(

Lolly said...

Deb....praying for that miracle!

Wanda, you are so sweet! I am so glad I found you guys as well! Glad you are feeling better. Holidays are not the time to be sick, not the best diet. Speaking of diets....mine starts soon. Ohhhh! But I am serious. Retirement has not been good for me. So, it starts Thursday. There I have said it outloud...WILL stick with it!

normabyrd said...

Sorry DEB!---We will pray for that miracle!!!!---HUGS--

Lolly said...

NORMA....we are NOT talking football around here. :(

My school...TCU did win their bowl game on the 23rd! And, Georgia Tech, Jack's school, plays tomorrow.

Costume Lady said...

Deb, we all know someone who knows more than the doctors and can pick up where they left off...we will pray to Him to do just that!

Costume Lady said...

Norma, my diet secret is:

l piece of lightly buttered toast
1 can of V-8 jusice
8-10 trips to bathroom

DON'T FOLLOW THIS DIET FOR MORE THAN 6 DAYS OR YOUR BUTT WILL FALL OFF AND YOU WILL BLOW AWAY.
(Good Luck)

normabyrd said...

LOLLY---Our WVU beat UNC!!---So we are HAPPY CAMPERS here too!!

Lolly said...

I don't think Norma needs that diet! I do believe all of her would blow away! And, we don't want that!

normabyrd said...

Thanks WANDA!!---I might lose weight on that diet too!---BUT DON'T WANT TO TRY!!---Hope you feel better each day!!----

Mits said...

eagles at TH.

Lolly said...

Yeah, Norma, let's cheer for our college teams and forget the pros.

Lolly said...

Okay, if I am going to accomplish anything at all today I have to pull away from the computer.

Have a great day! BBL

floralgirl said...

Uh, hello Norma-you DO NOT need to lose any weight....

Costume Lady said...

I think Norma wanted me to publish my diet and get rich. Don't think I would have any takers;)

paula eagleholic said...

Deb - sure hope the Dr's are wrong about your uncle. Will keep him in my thoughts.

paula eagleholic said...

You can really see the egg cup at BWE

Mits said...

Norma and Diet....what are 2 things that do not go together?????

normabyrd said...

NO! NO! WANDA!----I was kidding---I meant it as a joke!---but now I see it was a bad joke---TRULY SORRY!----

floralgirl said...

Honestly, I don't think your diet book would do any worse than the others out there....someone would try it...

Mits said...

they already do, Megan....it is the Model's diet....

floralgirl said...

Yes, but you have to remove a rib or two to complete the model's diet...

hedgie said...

Deb, that is too bad about your uncle...BUT, if his toes really moved, that's a good sign....we will all keep praying! Wanda is right, there is ONE who can make it all happen.
Wanda, I saw that post, and I looked and looked at the pic, and I wondered what I was missing...couldn't figure out your vision at all...LOL!!! So glad you are better, but it's a heck of way to lsoe weight!
I spent 10 min. trying to thread the needle on the sewing machine...argh!!! So frustrating...think I better make an eye apptmt. since I apparently need new glasses!!

hedgie said...

Lun can't make up her mind where she wants that baby! Just keeps lugging him from one room to another and back...she can hardly carry him anymore!! Funny!

hedgie said...

Now she just dumped him in the bamboo pile!

Mema Jo said...

Daughter has been here & is now leaving. Feet up for Panda Nap
BBL

Anne-Marie said...

good Morning, just taking a minute to rest and say Hi. Diana(gd) is off to work and I have cleaning to do. My pretty house looks like a bomb hit it.

deb said...

Lynn, I worry that is was wishful seeing on their part. We will just have to wait and see. Nothing new for now.

Cams are quiet, except for the dragging around of Luney.

deb said...

Eagle at Caltrans.

Anne-Marie said...

birds singing on PH. BW no one home and wind blowing at WV. turtle bay is foggy and cold. didnt need to look on monitor I looked outside. I hope it burns off.

Anne-Marie said...

OK Deb your right. Its only 3 hours away from me but its clear as a bell there. I guess the fog is down here. Maybe I should take a ride.

Anne-Marie said...

The water behind the eagle at turtle bay is the Sacramento River. It starts above Shasta Lake and flows through the valley , Sacramento, Stockton and out into the ocean at San Francisco Bay. There is a building right below the eagle that is a nature center. Its a highway for salmon and stripped bass.

Anne-Marie said...

When you get time look up Turtle Bay bridge. Its really beautiful.

Anne-Marie said...

BBL

deb said...

Pictures of Turtle Bay:

Turtle Bay Bridge

paula eagleholic said...

Aah yes, the sundial bridge

wvgal_dana said...

Kaboom little Luney tried to climb onto that lip and get into other room. Now he is standing against a wall little hind feet slipping.

wvgal_dana said...

Deb hope that your Uncles toes moving is the sign from God. Prayers going up for him and family.

Sorry I left so fast. Oxygen man came. Then off to help hubby with post office stuff. Of course he had to stop and get the new book I gave him Christmas Money for. It came in today.

wvgal_dana said...

BWE UPDATE... Nest Update

12/30/08:
On Tuesday both adults were on the nest, and one got comfortable for a bit (we assume it was the female).

Later we could see a grass cup where she had been sitting.

The earliest we've ever seen an egg at this nest is January 17.

deb said...

Darn, I missed them!

Mits said...

SENT YOU A PIC, DEB

deb said...

EAGLES

Mits said...

EAGLES

magpie said...

Eagles are on the NCTC Nest

Mits said...

digging in the nest

deb said...

I got it, I think the lady is wearing a coat just like mine.

deb said...

I don't have sound today, not sure if it is my computer or if it is for everyone.

Mits said...

I have sound, Deb

floralgirl said...

There goes one...

Mits said...

poof for one

deb said...

Poof.

Mits said...

poof number 2

Mits said...

but they are close by

floralgirl said...

And there goes number two...I hear ducks..

deb said...

And poof again. I remember, now, turning the volume down when I was on the phone this morning. Helps to have it turned up.

Mits said...

for sure, Deb,:)

magpie said...

That was pretty quick and quiet coming and going...nice wing flap noises.

DEB : Sendng the prayers to Scotsdale Arizona and for you and all the family...hope your uncle's condition improves despite the doctor's thoughts. I am so sorry to read of this sad situation.

magpie said...

Venus and the Moon are out...looks like the Moon is trying to catch a fly ball....

wvgal_dana said...

I did get to see the eagles in and out of our nest. Couldn't post I was froze up on the blog.

Morning (hee hee) Margy...

Love all these new avaitors.

wvgal_dana said...

Ok Margy I'm going out in cold to see moon. brb

magpie said...

Geula is safe and sound in Israel, as is her family. She has posted some messages on the Yahoo Momsters page. This is very comforting news. Prayers for Peace and resolution...

floralgirl said...

It's really pretty, isn't it..few scattered clouds here, but the moon is in the clear.. Still 40° here...

wvgal_dana said...

Margy if I keep this up I'm going to learn some "planets". Venus is actually beautiful. Looks like a star with a spear heading downward brightly.

Hubby is watch college football Md vs Ariz. playing a Idaho...and I hate their "blue playing field". Don't they know out there grass is GREEN !

magpie said...

Yes, and let's hope for clear skies Wednesday night to see the Celestial Fireworks Megan mentioned last night....
Jupiter is visible, pretty low on the horizon....

Hope all have a warm, comforting, and encouraging evening.

I'm going to try to sneak in a visit with the Grandson...

Prayers, for all...

xo ♥

hedgie said...

Dana...ooh..that blue field IS terrible!!

wvgal_dana said...

I know Lynn I can't stand to watch it. Whatever made them to make grass "blue"???

NatureNut said...

Watching MD-NEV game. Wild & Crazy!! MD ahead at the moment.
Go Terps--He&% in a Shell!!!!

wvgal_dana said...

I ooops earlier comment should have been Md and Nev game where the field is "blue"....

Loretta do you like that blue field??? I don't !

floralgirl said...

Bronco Stadium is home to the only blue Astro Turf in the World. The current turf is the new "Astro Play" which was installed during the summer of 2002. It's also the third blue field at the stadium. Boise State established a first in 1986 by installing the first blue Astro Turf field. The second blue Astro Turf was installed in 1995. Other schools have special color projects for the end zone area, but Boise State is the first to have the entire field produced in a special color. There have been two previous green Astro Turf fields installed prior to 1986. The first was during the original construction of the current stadium in 1970, with the second installed prior to the 1978 season.

Boise State's blue football field remains an eye-catcher.

And that's exactly what Gene Bleymaier hoped for when he came up with the idea of dying the artificial turf at Bronco Stadium.

"I guess that I'm the type of person that when I paint my house I paint it a different color so the neighbors notice you did something," said Bleymaier, Boise State's athletic director.
Bleymaier was the driving force behind Boise State's blue football field, which has grown into a tourist attraction rivaling potatoes for popularity in Idaho.
