Mits said...

Osprey at Hilton Head.

Hilton Head

Red said...

I think "Old Forester" is good for most ailments. Thats my favorite Burbon.
My mother gave Paregoric for everything too. I believe paregoric was made from opium. Know I know why I liked it. lol

Mits said...

beautiful osprey

deb said...

I don't remember a lot of those things, but I was hardly ever sick. I didn't miss a day of school for sickness, just sometimes for traveling at holidays. I wonder where all my attendance awards went to, I suppose my mom got rid of them.

Mits said...

oh yeah, enemas, when we had a high fever, doc would recommend a soapy enema....my God what a horrible experience

Mits said...

I was sick all the time....wonder why?

Mits said...

HH osprey looking right at the cam

Mits said...

geese going by at NCTC

magpie said...

Oboy! Now we can start all over again!

Happy Birthday Megan ! ♪ ♫ ☺ ♥ ♪ ♫

magpie said...

Glad you came back Wanda...I passed the baton to you and didn't even realize it was going to happen!

Hot Toddy, isn't that what whiskey, honey and tea was all about?

magpie said...

And I am still making my sacrifice to the cause, and do not have Live Feed Up!

Mits said...

yes, Margy, that was a hot toddy

magpie said...

I was pretty healthy too, Deb, guess the healthy genes got stronger for the caboose...last one of eight...
Now I call them Mean Genes.. I very rarely get sick...☺

magpie said...

I think someone would need to call an ambulance for a Crazy Woman if I get me an ammonia coke for get up and go... ☺

magpie said...

Oh Boy, Wanda is going to figure out that I have not gotten my pictures done...wonder if I should go and delete all my posts so she won't know how I spent my morning.
:)

magpie said...

Thanks for that Blue Link, Deb...makes things a lot easier.

magpie said...

Turkeys back for lunch at PIX Pa, or Snowballs !

magpie said...

Oh, Eagle.....

magpie said...

Wanda, they knew you were gone all this time and didn't want you to miss anything ♥

magpie said...

Oh, did you hear ? EAGLE !

magpie said...

They made it back from Sharpsburg after a chocolate run...

magpie said...

So my sacrifice is over for a few minutes...

AHEM ! Eagle !

magpie said...

I am really SQUAWKING AS LOUD AS I CAN...

magpie said...

I can't be on the wrong Blog!

floralgirl said...

You're in the right place, but my feed had frozen and I didn't see any eagle until I refreshed....

magpie said...

As long as the Birthday Girl sees the Eagle, all is well.... ♥

Mits said...

I see it Margy

floralgirl said...

I couldn't hear you yelling over the vacuum.

magpie said...

" Where is my partner ? "

magpie said...

Ya' better not be vacumming on your birthday ! I didn't have live feed up so I don't know if it was noisy or quiet.

Costume Lady said...

I heard Margy squawking and hollering and had to come see what was going on...worth the trip:)

floralgirl said...

Uh, oops , I have just vacuumed the entire house, washed the dishes, mopped the floors and have done 3 loads of laundry- oh yeah, and I gave the dog a bath- he is clean and ticked off...

Mits said...

nice to see you relaxing on your Birtday, Megan.

Mits said...

which eagle is it?

Mits said...

looke like it wanted to make a deposit

floralgirl said...

Ok, what is everyone's guess, is that Belle?
um, what is relaxing??? I think I have heard of it.

magpie said...

Thought the same thing, MITS...
Fridays are a good day for Deposits!

Mits said...

I think it is Belle, it was over the nest cup for a long time, now to the left of nest cup...see, Paula would know:)

floralgirl said...

I know, I always rely on Paula for an ID.

Costume Lady said...

Looks like Belle to me also.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I was thinking Belle too. Now I can't get back in FWS sites again.

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

And now I can.

Mits said...

did you have to show your ID, Sharon:)?

Mits said...

zooming in on butt

magpie said...

If we get an egg today, then the first born should be named Megan !
Boy or girl, regardless!

magpie said...

Well, I guess a boy Eagle should not be named Megan, how about Russell ?

magpie said...

I shut everything else down but this and the cam, seems to be helping some, also cleaned out cookies and histories...

magpie said...

haven't had to refresh since...
only had LW , PIX and BWE up...

hedgie said...

Suz thinks it was Lib in at around 12:10.

hedgie said...

When nature called 5'ish this am, I just had one of those feelings that told me to chek nest...what a pleasant surprise! My thought then was this should be the day since it's Megans' b-day!!

floralgirl said...

well, I do not think human names are good for eagles..anyway, I don't want the eagle coming back and claiming I am finacially responsible for it...lol.....

Mits said...

poof

magpie said...

Thought we were going to have one there...
maybe she is too hungry to lay an egg.

I don't know, would Liberty stand in that nest so long? I'm no expert....

Mits said...

yes, Lib has been known to stay in the nest for a long time

magpie said...

I see what you mean, Megan...
How about, Free Spirit
instead?

magpie said...

I'm still pretty new to an awful lot of this... ☺

Okay - I have to go do something....


Welcome Back, Hedgie..</b
You woke me up and then you left!
Now I will need a nap soon...☺

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

We have watched Lib stand in the nest for a long time, and then he would start working about 10 seconds before she showed up. Had to look busy I guess! :)

magpie said...

It did make a HUGE difference when I shut anything else down, don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but I have still not had to refresh since I did that.
BBL

Mits said...

typical male:)

Mema Jo said...

Hello Again! I got 2 shots from the DR - one is fast acting and the other one won't kick in until 5:00 or so.WHoo Hoo!
At least I know I don't have pneumonia
(think I spelled it right)
Lake WA is good for an eagle fix

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Mema Jo, you spelled that exactly right!

Mema Jo said...

Well Hot Dang!

OUR NEST IS REALLY GOOD FOR

AN EAGLE FIX

Mema Jo said...

WHoo HOoo! Belle wants in the egg cup!
Move over Liberty!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

An eagle fix and a little more! ☺

Mits said...

BOTH

Mema Jo said...

I really said move over
Not move on............. lol

Mema Jo said...

I do wish we had 'color' like LAKE WA

Maybe Tom Otto would come on over to our tree and fix us up with that!

Mema Jo said...

One fly off from the limb at LW

Really windy up at OUR nest

magpie said...

Saw them just in time, Mema.
Follow the leader (out of the nest, LW )

Mits said...

would love color too, but would really like the cam and sound to stop freezing up, so didn't have to spend half the time refreshing it

hedgie said...

Jo, I think the color will become more obvious in spring. There are some days when the sun is right that the color is really good!
Margy, I am in and out of office, trying to vacuum, launder, etc., like Megan is doing!

floralgirl said...

Yep, it's a tad breezy here.
I just wish the sound would stay on. I tried to open up a nw cam page to get sound and I can't open the cam page.

hedgie said...

Just found out that SIL picked up 2 of the nails in his tires last Fri. Just found them today when noticed tires low. Drat....offered to get him new tires, but he says he'll just plug...hope that works, cause I sure didn't want to spend tax refund on tires for anyone! Since I haven't been out since that day, I guess I better go check air pressure on mine.

floralgirl said...

ok, finally got it to open...

hedgie said...

Salt truck just came through...thank goodness...road was still an ice rink this am.

magpie said...

Gesundheit !

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie - you are only allowed to do that on your b-day.

Megan - put that vacuum back in the
closet - put your feet up! AND don't
cook dinner - Oops! maybe mil is already
doing that! Yummy

I am going to take a panda nap -
Needless to say - I MISS LUNEY!

BBILW No silver alert please!

Costume Lady said...

First egg could be called Meegan:)

hedgie said...

Jo, so glad you don't have pneumonia!! Were the shots an antibiotic or a steroid?

Costume Lady said...

I have Belle on the Live feed and both of them on Still cam, Must need to refresh.

Mema Jo said...

Hedgie I meant all the housework you were doing like Megan
I type slow......

BBL

floralgirl said...

I sat down, I'm paying bills now.

hedgie said...

Jo, do you mean I can't "work" since it's not my b-d??? DON'T I WISH...along with everyone else!!!!Megan really needs to learn how to relax!

magpie said...

That nurses, Hedgie, about the tires, won't use the other word...

Good News, Jo, and have a good nao, I'm headed for the same myself. Waiting to hear from sick friend.

floralgirl said...

Alright...I do know how to relax, but I can't stand when I'm stuck inside and the house is a mess- and the only way to clean is when no one is here so they don't get in my way...

magpie said...

My big plan that worked earlier is not working now, silent, choppy and freezing. Guess that is my sign. xo

magpie said...

Nao, Oriental word for Nap...

Makes sense Megan, you don't want to have be like Blondie with Dagwood !

Back later -

floralgirl said...

Eagle just called out- they're talking...

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I wouldn't know about eagles calling out because I can't keep the sound or the picture going long enough. First sounds goes away, then pic freezes up!

floralgirl said...

I opened a new page and my sound is staying on-before that it was freezing up and had no sound.

Mits said...

nestorations now, Lib looks like he wants to bolt

Mits said...

and did

floralgirl said...

Came right back.

hedgie said...

And both again!

floralgirl said...

Some afternoon delight...

hedgie said...

Color looking really good at this moment!!

floralgirl said...

my live feed froze and cam is missing from page when I open new one. Still cam shows 2 in nest.

floralgirl said...

I couldn't get cam back up- had to through link Steve posted the other day.

floralgirl said...

Lib just flew out.

movin said...

Thanks for the warning, Megan. I just tuned back in to the live feed, and I was about to refresh it.

But fortunately something moved in the frame, so I left it on.

Jim

Mits said...

drat.....dead car battery...AAA on the way:)

movin said...

Well, I thought it was working, but when I switched to the still, I see Belle right in the middle of the nest; and now I'm getting her on the live feed as well.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

floralgirl said...

Lib is back with a stick!

Mits said...

aww he brought her a stick

floralgirl said...

There goes Belle.

Mits said...

poof belle

movin said...

Hahaha. They're playing and squabbling over where that darned stick goes. He tried to push her way over to the end so he could put the stick where she was standing.


C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

Mits said...

that little devil, he had a treat he must have hid from her and he is eating it

Mits said...

was that a poop-shoot?

Mits said...

BRS is on the move again.

floralgirl said...

Darn, I don't know, walked away to scrub the bathroom floor....
MT nest now.

Mits said...

Mits said...

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

I think our egg cup is going to need some revamping before it is ready for eggs.

Mits said...

yes, it is a mess....BWE's is picture perfect

hedgie said...

It has been snowing like crazy for the last 45 mins. here...have 1/2" new snow on top of the icy stuff now...yucko!

Mema Jo said...

It is also snowing alot in
BLUEFIELD.......

Hedgie I hope it doesn't make it
over South Mountain to here in the
valley........

Lolly said...

Hi all! Been busy working on birthday cakes. Have been thinking of you, Megan. Happy Birthday! Jan 30 is a very special day. My parents were married on Jan 30 and we saw and brought Michael home for the first time Jan. 30. He was 12 days old. 40 years ago today. I remember it like yesterday!

Have made an Elvis cake for Zach's big birthday party tomorrow. (Birthday is Sunday!) And, Ashley just called and Zach is sick. Do not know if the party is on or off. Second cake is cooling and then I will ice and decorate it. Bummer! Guess I will try freezing them.....by OMG there is NO room in the freezer. This should be interesting!

Lolly said...

It is 64 here and bright sun shine!

Jack is out digging in the yuck. Took a dead tree down recently and it apparently broke one of the sprinkler system water pipes underground. Lovely!

He is leaving me tomorrow. Will be all by my lonesome self for a week. He is going to Houston, to NASA for consulting on some tests.

Also, my big DIET starts Sunday. Yuck!

Costume Lady said...

Hi Lolly. Cake freezes very well, IF you can find room for it.

No snow here, Lynn. Hope it holds off til after dinner. GeeGee would not be a happy camper if she couldn't get her crab legs:(

Lolly said...

We are going out to eat tonight! Going to Nona Tattas, where we went for my birthday. Fantastic, authentic Italian cooking. You can see her cooking. It is sooo good. This is my treat before diet and Jack leaving. LOLO

Mits said...

AAA, just left....low battery...somebody left the door slightly ajar the other night when they brought my car in from outside. wonder who that was?:)

Costume Lady said...

Ahh, diet. I sorta wandered away from mine, Lolly, when we went to Florida and haven't gotten back to it yet:(

Lolly said...

Whoops! Too many OOOO's! Still learning to type on this laptop!

Mits said...

I've been on a diet for 2 weeks, and all I've lost is 14 days.

Costume Lady said...

Would that be Grandma Tattas?
It is 32° here, right now. Wind is blowing fiercely.

Lolly said...

Well, I am committed to this diet. There will be NO wandering off and lots of excercising. Yuck!

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

SAVE THE TA-TAS!

Costume Lady said...

Correction from earlier....1st egg could be called MEGG-AN, in honor of Megan's B'Day:)

Lolly said...

I am not sure what "Nona" is, I kind of think it means grandmother. I think that is what I read. She is young, from Italy, and cooks many of her grandmother's recipes. Only 6 tables in this place, can seat only 18 or 19 people at a time. You have to get there early to get a table.

Costume Lady said...

How's it going for you Sharon? Is your surgeon happy with how you are doing?
Have you ever been to the Wood Grill in Charlottesville?
Grandaughter went to school in Charlottesville and we spent a lot of time there. Love their food

floralgirl said...

OMG- I just walk away for a little, and it's ta-tas and diets...

Mits said...

BWO UPDATE.....

Nest Update

01/30/09:
We're only about six weeks away from seeing our ospreys migrate up from South and Central America and return to the Osprey Cam for a new season.

Our eagles will be happy to see them -- the eagles like to steal their fish!

Mits said...

WEIRD NEWS....




HEBRON, Ind. - A woman who wasn't invited to her sister's wedding reception showed up anyway and attacked the bride, pulling out clumps of her hair, police said.
Annmarie Bricker, 23, of Valparaiso, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of battery.

Jeremy Glotzbach told police he was hosting a reception for newlyweds Nicholas Landry and Lori Kappes at his home on Jan. 23 when Bricker, Kappes' sister, attacked Kappes on the front porch.

Bricker pulled out clumps of Kappes' hair, struck her head and took the bride to the ground during a struggle, according to the Porter County Sheriff's Department.

Bricker told police she went to the house because she "just wanted to talk" to her sister and parents about family problems. She said she never touched her sister, but five witnesses contradicted her, authorities said. Kappes did not need medical treatment.

Bricker later resigned from her job as a Porter County 911 dispatcher, officials said.

Just Vicky said...

Happy Birthday Flower Child Megan!

hedgie said...

People truly are crazy, aren't they? And to lie when witnesses saw what really happened is just plain stupid!!! Good thing she resigned...bet they would have fired her otherwise!
Food talk again!! Making me hungry!
Sorry Zach is sick, Lolly. Of course, kids can recover so quickly that everything may still be a go! Happy adoption day to you and Jack!

hedgie said...

And to Michael, too, of course!

Mits said...

yeah Lynn, crazy out there.

Lolly said...

I think of it as "Gotcha" day! LOL

floralgirl said...

Thanks, Lolly, Vicki and Wanda:) And just in case I left anyone out- thank you everybody!! now this bday chick is off to the vet-shhh...don't tell the dog, he still doesn't know.. I told him we were going to Petsmart...

floralgirl said...

Then Happy 'gotcha day', Lolly:)

Mits said...

what's your cell #, Megan? I'm calling him.

Red said...

Hi Princess!

movin said...

The male is at BWO with a fish. Let's see what their program is nowdays. Will he take the food to the nest after eating the head, or what?

wvgal_dana said...

Well if Megan doesn't get a Birthday egg. She got the makings of one today.

wvgal_dana said...

Megan you might get by with taking dog in car. It's when you start in the vet door that ends the fun. They just know !

magpie said...

It's that Bedford Energy...brings'em in like Magic.

Hi T-Bird

I missed the l♥vey-d♥vey stuff.

wvgal_dana said...

Lolly hoping that Zach for be well and running around by his birthday.
Contragulation on you, Franks and Michael's SPECIAL DAY TODAY 40 YRS AGO. ( :

magpie said...

But I am too young to be seeing that stuff anyway ! ☺

Mits said...

hope he got the sweet tea, Red

wvgal_dana said...

Margy I thought they would only give "911 operators license plates with 911 on it". Seen one and know the person is not 911 operator. It did on say 911.

magpie said...

Special thoughts for you Lolly. and sure Zach beats back the bug!

wvgal_dana said...

on should have been only

magpie said...

That old brown leaf on the left of the outside of the nest really wants to come into the nest !

Mits said...

Mits said...

wvgal_dana said...

Went to the live cam and watched for a little while...keeps freezing. Now that I've closed it, I have to reboot to get rid of the sound! BBL.

Mits said...

it sure is a challenge to watch the cam

magpie said...

I think I should have tried to count how many times I hit the refresh button today :(

Spectacular sunset here in Berkeley County, and Moon is now to the upper right of Venus...it is going to be pretty after dark ☺

Mits said...

another awesome close up at NBG

wvgal_dana said...

Forgive my manners. I think I came in with excitment of eagles. Good Evening Everyone. Hope all is having a good day.

Thoughts of Paula and others that need prayers.

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
